While competitive FPS games are everywhere nowadays, few compare to CSGO's unparalleled attention to realistic gunplay. Shooting in any of the Counter-Strike games is rarely as simple as aiming at the head. Instead, it involves real-life gun mechanics. There's recoil and bullet spread, and players must carefully learn to control weapon spray. It makes for a superior challenge, but with the Counter-Strike 2 release date inbound, there's a good reason for the next Valve shooter to introduce follow recoil, and make Counter-Strike 2 a little more accessible for players other than pros.

If you've always thought that the original Halo was an FPS game missing spin kicks and guns strapped to the Chief's noggin, do I have a treat for you. This enhanced "Cursed Halo" mod turns the original Halo: Combat Evolved in the Master Chief Collection into an entirely new experience, and it's incredible.

Here we go again. Metal Gear Solid voice actor and singer Donna Burke has sent the rumour mill into overdrive by sharing photos of her seemingly recording something related to Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater. With the ever-circling rumours of an MGS3 remake project in the works at Konami growing in their insistence of late, Burke's latest posts are clearly designed to tease those eager for a return of the best stealth game of all time.

Collecting Overwatch 2 skins is a large part of the appeal for many players, but one of its most popular skins has eluded some for years. The Overwatch 2 Pink Mercy skin was available for purchase as part of a charity drive, but hasn't been available in the multiplayer game since. Its recent appearance in an Amazon Prime Gaming advert caused questions to be raised, but the game's executive producer says this was a mistake, although he notes that more Overwatch 2 charity events are being planned for the future.

If you're starting playing Ghostwire: Tokyo after it came to Game Pass this week, I have a hot tip for you: prioritise upgrading movement abilities. The freedom to glide from rooftop to rooftop over haunted Tokyo will bring you so much more joy than any incremental damage upgrade. That's the most important thing I have to say, that it makes for good virtuatourism.
Oh, and I suppose a free content arrived this week too, adding new side-missions, handy new combat abilities, and a new "rogue-lite" mode. The update, uh, apparently also added Denuvo, over a year after the game launched? Cool, cool.

Now that Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is here, there are a lot of games to go through. Capcom likes to say it's 10, but I mean basically you have six with 3, 4, 5, and 6 offering variants with some changes between the two. It might have you wondering which Mega Man Battle Network game might be the best choice to start with or perhaps play first if you're not going to go through them in order. Well, here are some possible suggestions to consider.
Best Mega Man Battle Network Games for Just Getting Started: 1 or 4
It's best to think of the six games as sort of covering different arcs, even though they are all connected and it's one big storyline. The ideal place to start is with Mega Man Battle Network. It introduces Lan and MegaMan.EXE. You get a proper look at life with NetNavis. Dr. Wily is pretty prominent, and you see a lot of familiar characters like Roll and Gutsman often. WWW also consistently shows up as an antagonist.
However, Mega Man Battle Network 4 is also a great place to start. Especially if you only get Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection Vol. 2. It brings up the group Nebula, introduces Dark Chips, taps into the Emotion Window to increase MegaMan.EXE's power, and lets you gain NetNavi powers with DoubleSoul. It can be the longest entry in the series if you do play through it multiple times to see everything. But if you just want to go through once to prepare and get a feel for everything coming in 5 and 6, it works!
Best Mega Man Battle Network Game in the Series: 3
Mega Man Battle Network 3 feels like everything came together perfectly. The "two versions" element works, because there are a lot of parts that make it both look and feel different. Blue has Shadow Style, which lets you become temporarily invisible, while White has a Ground Style for cracking panels. Both are handy tactical options! There are exclusive Giga Chips. (FolderBack is amazing in Blue!) You have different bosses, like BowlMan in Blue and MistMan in White. You also can fight Punk in Blue too.
It also feels like it gets really strong tactically, with noticeable improvements over the first two games. (This isn't to say entries 4-6 are bad, but it feels really special when 3 stands out the way that it does.) I'm a huge fan of the Folder system, what with you needing to really pick the one Mega Chip and one Giga Chip most critical to your strategy for a Folder. It also feels like you can't spam Chips as you would in the past, as only four of each could be added to your deck. Style Changes are handled well, and I love their abilities. I'm a big fan of the bosses that come up this time as well, with BeastMan, PlantMan, MistMan, and the final ones being really enjoyable.
Also, the story is really solid. It offers a lot of explanations for what happened in the first two games with both WWW and Gospel, which is great. Plus if you decide for some reason that hey, this is the last entry I'll ever play, it has a fantastic ending and some great post-game bosses.
Mega Man Battle Network Legacy Collection is available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.

The Shin Ultraman Nendoroid is already on its way and ready to save humans from the kaiju threat. Good Smile Company opened up pre-orders for the new Nendoroid based on the latest version of the giant of light. The figure will cost ¥6,200/$44.99 and its release is slated for October 2023.
Shin Ultraman comes with just one face plate. However, people can use batteries with it to make his eyes light up. As for the posing options, it will feature the body parts and accessories needed to recreate some of his classic moves such as the flying pose and the ultra-slash attack.
Most notably, you can place the arms in an L-shape form to recreate the memorable pose for the Spacium Beam. In addition, the set also brings the beta capsule used in the movie for the transformation process.
Here's a closer look at the Shin Ultraman Nendoroid set and poses.
[gallery columns="4" link="file" ids="959519,959518,959516,959517,959520"]
Shin Ultraman is the latest iteration of the iconic Japanese tokusatsu hero and it's part of the Shin Japan Heroes Universe joined by Godzilla, Kamen Rider, and Evangelion. This project has led to many collaborations between these brands, the latest being a paid DLC for SD Shin Kamen Rider Rumble featuring all of the main characters.
Good Smile Company previously announced this Ultraman Nendoroid in February 2023 during WonHobby36. Some of the other figures shown in the event were Cyberpunk: Edgerunners' David Martinez Nendoroid, Tokyo Revenger's Manjiro Sano figure, and a Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann XL Pop-Up Parade.
The Shin Ultraman Nendoroid is open for pre-order at Good Smile Company's official site until May 25, 2023.

Bandai Spirits will open up a Ichiban Kuji lottery for prizes based on The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom in Japan. You'll be able to try your luck from May 9, 2023, and it'll cost 750 JPY ($5.60). Including the Last One Prize and Double Chance Campaign, there'll be nine possible types of prizes. Both the A Prize and Double Chance Campaign prizes are the newest versions The Legend of Zelda Master Sword. [Thanks, Hobby Watch!]
The prizes in the The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Ichiban Kuji lottery are:
[gallery columns="9" ids="959475,959472,959480,959476,959479,959473,959477,959478,959474" link="file"]
The Master Sword light looks like the The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Master Sword, though with the blade portion shining. You can use it with the stand so that it's a desk lamp. You can likely also hold it in your hand like a flashlight. As for the stationery collection, it seems like there's a memo pad, folders, and notebooks.
The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom will come out for the Nintendo Switch on May 12, 2023. The Ichiban Kuji lottery for it will start from May 9, 2023. In Japan, you'll be able to pull for these prizes in places like convenience stores.
