The Last Of Us was re-released for the 117th time last week, this time on the PC (which was admittedly a first!), and like the huge launches for games like Horizon and God of War should have been cause for celebration. Instead the week, and fans' expectations, were sunk by a ton of performance issues and bugs.

As someone who's been fragging in FPS games for a decade, it didn't take me long to adjust to Valorant's shooting. But, some days were like a walk in the park - I'd drop a smooth 30 bomb without even breaking a sweat. On other days I'd spend the entire game inspecting teammates, fuming at the bottom of the scoreboard. Turns out, I am not alone. Many players think Valorant matchmaking feels awfully inconsistent. The horrors of red carpet don't elude even the best in the game, but why is that?

In terms of popularity and making money, videogames have come a long way in the last thirty years, with Call of Duty, World of Warcraft, and Grand Theft Auto - to name but a few - now legitimate cultural phenomena alongside any movie or TV show you might care to mention. But just as the mega-hit, live-service, triple-A game has carried our industry to new heights, so too has it perhaps overshadowed a certain kind of gaming experience. It feels like everything nowadays has to be mass multiplayer, open-world, and equipped with a two-year DLC roadmap. Space game Fort Solis, starring Roger Clark (better known as Red Dead Redemption 2's Arthurt Morgan) and Troy Baker, aka Joel from The Last of Us, seeks to offer an alternative.

Both Cryo users are popular, but Ayaka once took full control of the anime game's character banners and was available for well over a month when COVID-19 affected development. As a result, players had many opportunities to get her.

Metas change, the LoL tier list will fluctuate, and your favourite champion might not be in a great place right now. While you can absolutely win games and climb the ranked ladder with nearly anyone in the lower ranks, the changes that come via champion and item balancing can tip the scales enough that some picks are almost mandatory, regardless of which ELO you play in.
We've put together a few picks for each lane that have become especially overpowered recently in League of Legends. Whether it's due to a buff, kit change, or item change, these are safe picks if you're looking to climb the solo queue ranks in the free PC game. If you do want to play something other than what's on this list, keep these champions in mind for your ban, as they all have the potential to go on and dominate Summoner's Rift in one of the best MOBAs you can play right now.

Bandai Namco is collaborating with Shibori Threads to produce new Dark Souls-themed clothing.

Due to this, details such as price, size and regional availability are unknown, but you can sign up on their website to be notified when more information is available.
Shibori Threads' Twitter account shared some images of the products.

The final design features the series' iconic death screen text against the image of the Dark Sign.
You can get a better look in the gallery below:
Shibori Threads are a tie-dye focused clothing company founded by Singer Kyle Anderson and Guitarist Leo Valeri from heavy metal/deathcore band Brand of Sacrifice. They collaborated with several metal bands to produce themed clothing, including Trivium and Killswitch Engage.
The last Dark Souls game to be released was 2018's Dark Souls Remastered, though developer From Software's latest game, Elden Ring, is widely considered a spiritual successor. Elden Ring recently received ray-tracing support in an update and has DLC in development.

Square Enix posted two videos of the FFXIV Eorzean Symphony 2022 concert on the official Final Fantasy XIV YouTube channel. The footage features the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra playing the songs "Close in the Distance" and "Endcaller" as a preview of the FFXIV Orchestral Album Vol. 3 Blu-ray. The official FFXIV Twitter account also shared the two full orchestral versions along with the scenes shown in the live performance. Another video with more footage from the event and some behind-the-scenes segments has been posted as well on the game's YouTube channel.
Each video shows the live performances along with some notable outtakes from the event. Markedly, they feature one of the most memorable moments of the concert when the entire audience turned on the Elpis Flower lights to the rhythm of "Close in the Distance."
Here's the "Close in the Distance" performance.
And this is "Endcaller."
The FFXIV Eorzean Symphony 2022 concert was held at the Tokyo Garden Theater on December 17-18, 2022, with two performances each day. Pre-orders for a Blu-ray featuring the live performance opened in December 2023 for $64.99. The Blu-ray comes with special packaging and some bonuses. These extras include a written interview commentary by arranger Sachiko Miyano and lead composer Masayoshi Soken for certain songs and even in-game codes for the orchestral version of "To the Edge" and "Flow" as orchestrion rolls.

With visual novels, the sights and sounds before the player matter. They are necessary to set and maintain the tone and atmosphere in a way that can differ from other genres. TYPE-MOON's Witch on the Holy Night is a game in which this is especially clear, and Siliconera got to ask Lead Composer Hideyuki Fukasawa a few questions about composing tracks for its soundtrack.
Jenni Lada: How did you come to work on the Witch on the Holy Night soundtrack?
Hideyuki Fukasawa: Witch on the Holy Night was the first TYPE-MOON title I was involved with. I worked on several other games from other companies before, but I never had any experience being entrusted with a job like this, nor had I handled a title with a setting [like Witch on the Holy Night] and I felt it was an assignment worthy of the challenge.
With Witch on the Holy Night essentially being a visual novel, how much time was spent composing its soundtrack?
Fukasawa: The game is indeed a visual novel, but I probably didn't really understand how much impact music had on players at the time. PC games ten years ago didn't have voiced dialog, and so music must have played an even more important role, but I didn't think about that effect and just composed as I thought best during initial production. So while composing the music itself took the same amount of time as usual, preparing the music composition took more time than usual because I was establishing a simple rule or motif for all songs to create a common mood and tone. Preparing those took about a week, and then I simply took those rules and applied them to my compositions, which took about two to three weeks.
Fukasawa: Before working on Witch on the Holy Night, I knew that there was a game called Fate/stay night and I knew what it was about, but I had never played it, nor did I know that it was a TYPE-MOON title.
When I was assigned to work on [Witch on the Holy Night], I thought my work would be affected by the other titles if I looked at them beforehand, so I purposefully avoided them so I could work with a blank canvas. So I don't believe other titles had much influence on this work.
However, I do remember listening to just one song that was composed by Yuki Kajiura for The Garden of Sinners, which was part of the materials I received during production of the music. I should have expected this from the get-go, but I remember being thoroughly impressed with the track. It was absolutely beautiful, and I can sometimes hear snippets of it like an earworm still today. I actually don't remember which specific track it was, but maybe [Kajiura-san's] music influenced mine in some way. Now that I have been exposed to so many works and titles, I strive to always approach my work with a fresh and open mind.
Which Witch on the Holy Night song took the most time to compose?
Fukasawa: I don't remember which song took the most time. Completing the entire project, including additional orders, might have taken the longest time. However, I do remember that the main theme took the shortest time for me to compose. I remember writing up a melody that popped in my head right on the spot during the very first music production meeting when we were all being briefed on the game's overall setting, which turned into a very significant moment for me.
Witch on the Holy Night is digitally available for the Nintendo Switch and PS4 digitally and physically. It also appeared on the PC in Japan.

e Koei Tecmo and Gust released a new Atelier Ryza 3 patch on April 3, 2023, addressing a depth of field issue reported across all platforms. This update also fixes some issues related to textures and icons in certain circumstances. Moreover, Koei Tecmo stated later updates will bring additional graphics options.
This new patch aims to fix a depth of field issue that made any element in the distance appear heavily blurred from the player's perspective. This adjustment will also make the depth of field weaker for the entire game. However, more detailed graphics options for all platforms will be added in later updates as previously announced.
That isn't the only change. The patch also fixes a bug that caused the water surface textures to disappear and improves the response time when connecting normal and skill attacks. In terms of platform-specific changes, the copyright notice size was adjusted for PS4 and PS5 screenshots. With the Steam version, an issue affecting key icons while using a 4k monitor was fixed as well.
The previous patch also fixed display issues and bugs across all platforms. Most notably, they fixed an error in which a quest-related item would not appear when the expected, bringing all progress in the game to a halt.
Atelier Ryza 3 is available on the PS4, PS5, Switch, and PC, and the patch update fixing the depth of field issue is already up for all platforms.

Now that a new month has begun, Square Enix once again shared a new FFVII Remake calendar for April 2023. This time, people get to look at art of Tifa Lockhart for a month. There are two different options, each one available in two styles. People can see the classic key art of her from the FFVII PlayStation release on their computer or mobile device. However, if they prefer, they can see the remade version of that piece released ahead of the launch of FFVII Remake.
Here's the official reveal. In each case, the FFVII Remake April 2023 calendar features art of Tifa on the water tower in Nibelheim.
This is the third month in a row that Square Enix's FFVII Remake 2023 involved options with classic and revisited art. The initiative kicked off in February 2023 with Cloud. It showed the old and new versions of the Cloud key art that showed him in front of the Shinra building. The March 2023 images involved Barret and his daughter Marlene in Aerith's church. However, the year started out with Sephiroth art.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is available on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. FFVII Rebirth will come to the PS5 in Winter 2023.

Nintendo Europe are now offering free Joy-Con repairs if they're experiencing "drift" issues. This new policy applies to all countries within the European Economic Area (EEA), UK and Switzerland. These repairs will also apply if the controllers are outside of the warranty.
Nintendo posted an update on their European website where users can book a repair if necessary. The page also offers suggestions on methods to try before sending them in to be fixed. The site also notes that the repairs only apply specifically to what they call responsiveness syndrome, known to most players as "drift." It does not apply to Joy-Cons broken in other ways.
While Nintendo's free Joy-Con repair policy has already been in place in France and Belgium, this is the first time the policy has been rolled out across the whole region.
The change in policy follows calls from consumer advocacy groups within Europe around the widespread issue with Joy-Cons. In 2021, the European consumer group BEUC called on the EU Commission to launch an investigation into the issue, which they have continued to raise as an issue as recently as July 2022.
In June 2022, UK consumer advocacy group Which? found that 40% of UK Switch owners had experience Joy-Con issues. Their subsequent investigation in December 2022 determined there was a mechanical fault with the Joy-Cons that Nintendo had to address.
A similar policy change was previously made in North America after class action lawsuits in both the US and Canada.

A website for Nintendo Systems, a new subsidiary between Nintendo and DeNA, has gone live. According to the announcement on the official Nintendo webpage, it will develop new systems and services to bring Nintendo's entertainment to its customers. It will innovate new and creative ways to have fun by combining Nintendo and DeNA's unique skillsets and values.
Nintendo Systems will open up job positions in June 2023. It has offices in both Tokyo (Shibuya) and Kyoto. Nintendo noted that its strengths in these technologically innovative times are its originality and flexibility. It also has a space for its employees and members to discuss their ideas, as well as work together. It is unknown at this point what kinds of games or services this division will create.
Services that DeNA offered include mobile and browser games, as well as live streaming apps. While not related to video games, it also had several services focusing on healthcare, peer-to-peer car sharing, and NFT collection. Because of DeNA's history, Nintendo Systems may be a subsidiary that will focus entirely on breaking into the mobage market. Nintendo Systems would not be the first time Nintendo created a subsidiary for a specific purpose. In late 2022, Nintendo revealed Nintendo Pictures, which is its visual media production company.
Nintendo Systems was created in April 2023 and it will start taking job applications in June 2023. Interested parties can sign up for a mailing list; the company will contact you when it starts to hire employees.

See Clive and Ifrit Fight in Final Fantasy XVI Footage
Now that Final Fantasy XVI's release is drawing nearer, Square Enix is regularly sharing details and gameplay footage on the official Twitter account. Many of these new clips focus on major characters. For example, the last two Final Fantasy XVI videos showed fights involving Clive and Ifrit.
The first bit of footage appeared on April Fools' Day. That involved Clive fighting the Final Fantasy XVI version of a Salamander. The clip began with him using the Megaflare attack against it. This chained into a Zantetsuken, which finished off the opponent.
Next, here's another peek at Ifrit fighting an Eikon in Final Fantasy XVI. This time, it's an attack on Titan. The footage begins with Ifrit using a Precision Dodge to avoid Titan's Geocrush attack, then performing a Precision Counter. Ifrit then uses Fireball Burst with a Burst Finish, then dodges another attack and counters again. The footage ends with a Combination Stomp and Pyrosault.
Final Fantasy XVI will come to the PS5 on June 22, 2023. There will be a six-month exclusivity period. Square Enix announced the game went gold at the end of March 2023, meaning that it is ready to ship.

Shields will be able to do more than just defend Link in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom via "Fuse." In a video shown on the official Japanese Twitter account for the franchise, Nintendo demonstrated a shield that can double as a smokescreen. This will be one of many different special shields that you will be able to craft in the game.
In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, you will be able to attach objects to your shields through the "Fuse" ability. This will grant the shield numerous extra effects. In the video, Link attached a "Smokeshroom" onto the shield, which will let out smoke when an enemy's hit lands on it. This will then cause the enemy to lose sight of Link. Link will then be able to either make his escape or one-sidedly destroy his target.
You can see the smokescreen shield in action here:
Previously, Nintendo showed off Link using a flamethrower shield. Other features we've seen thus far in Tears of the Kingdom include Link's Recall, Ultrahand, and Ascend. These are all abilities that will help him on his adventure through post-apocalyptic Hyrule.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will come out on the Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. It will cost $69.99 as opposed to the usual $59.99.
