We're barely one-twelfth of the way through 2023 and a surprising number of games are already about to get killed off, as devs have announced their impending deaths.

Street Fighter 6 feels like a shot in the arm for Capcom's long-running fighting series after Street Fighter V's middling reception, and a lot of that comes down to how much personality it injects into every frame. One of the best examples of that we've seen so far is in the character intros that take place before…

     Destiny 2 Guardian Games players want a Titans win in honour of Zavala

Destiny 2 Guardian Games players want Titans to win to honour Commander Zavala, whose voice actor, Lance Reddick, passed away suddenly just a few months ago. Zavala, a Titan who is a prominent leader of the Vanguard, is a central character in Bungie's FPS game. Reddick's passing took a toll on the community as players worldwide mourned his death; he was not only a leading voice but also an avid Destiny 2 player himself, and Guardian Games players are seeking to honour his memory by playing as the in-game class Zavala represented.

     Genshin Impact's pity system can make 4-stars rarer than 5-stars

The Genshin Impact four-star pity system makes sure that players obtain a four-star character or item after every 10 pulls, but fans have pointed out that even banner four-stars are never fully guaranteed. While this isn't always an issue, it's true that you could pull on a banner 90 times - enough to secure one five-star character - and still never get the four-star that you were hoping to add to your party.

Nowadays, if you're looking for a VPN provider, you're almost spoiled for choice, with so many options and each of them providing a slightly different package.

For perspective, that's the same year that CSGO, Borderlands 2, and the original Dishonored first came out, so we're going back a ways.

     Best gaming VPN 2023

The best VPN for gaming will help to completely revolutionise your experience in games like Call of Duty: Warzone, FIFA, and League of Legends. They can help to reduce ping, give you access to easier lobbies, improve download speeds, protect you from DDoS attacks, give you access to regional exclusive content, and much more.

While virtual private networks are known to slightly lower download speeds, that's not always the case. Internet service providers often throttle your speeds when you engage in bandwidth-heavy activities such as gaming, but since the best gaming VPN hides what you're doing from prying eyes, ISPs are none the wiser when you're connected to one. They also keep your IP address private, which is an important step towards maintaining your internet anonymity.

Not all VPNs are built equally, however, and free VPN services just don't cut it. Fortunately, you can offset the cost of the subscription by using the VPN to hunt for better deals on games that are cheaper in other regions. You'll get more for your money if you subscribe in bulk, as a year costs less overall than the monthly subscription - and if you're still not convinced, you can try them out no-strings attached, as some of them have a VPN free trial.

     The best truck games on PC 2023

Looking for some of the best truck games on PC? Trucks, and truckers, have become mythologised in pop culture like modern-day cowboys, transporting crucial cargo across harsh, lonely landscapes and spending days in their own company. Translating that experience into a videogame has taken many forms over the last couple of decades, from Mad Max-like highway battlers to fully-fledged simulation games where journeys take as long as they would in real life.

You'd be forgiven for thinking that there aren't many truck games out there, but as you'll see shortly, these hulking great movers of stuff span many genres, including the popular truck sims, but also branching out to physics-based puzzlers, platform games, and racing games. So whether you're looking to lose yourself on a long trip along the Pacific Northwest, want to spend hours hauling your cargo through a single muddy ditch, or want to take your truck to a chicane-riddled racecourse, we've got the best PC games for those who love the open road.

     CSGO ranks 2023 – CS:GO MM ranking explained

As with so many things about Valve's peerless team-based shooter, CSGO ranks are hard to wrap your head around when starting out. There is little in the way of in-game explanations to help you figure out how to get started with CSGO rankings. It doesn't help that earning your stripes will take a lot longer than in other competitive first-person shooters like Rainbow Six Siege and Overwatch, either.

CSGO has continued to grow, now touting a concurrent player count of over 1.4 million during peak hours. That means there are a lot of new players learning the ropes and trying to adjust to one of the best PC games of all time. However, with 18 CSGO ranks and no progress bar, it can be tricky to climb the ladder. So we thought you could use a helping hand in the unforgiving multiplayer game – here is a breakdown of CSGO's ranking system.

     How to make a blast furnace in Minecraft

If you need a Minecraft blast furnace for all your smelting needs, you've come to the right place. To create a blast furnace, you'll first need to craft a normal furnace, which you can do by using eight pieces of Cobblestone in the crafting grid. Now you've got your furnace, you can read on to find the rest of the blast furnace recipe and what you can do with it when it's all fired up and ready to go.

Creating a blast furnace in Minecraft, one of the best PC games, is the first step towards smelting your old gear into iron ingots, which you can use to craft other items, such as a Minecraft anvil or Minecraft grindstone. You can find blast furnaces in Minecraft villages in armourer houses. If there isn't an armourer villager already using a blast furnace as their job site block, then any villager can change their profession to armourer. Blast furnaces smelt at double the speed of a regular furnace and can be used to smelt ores, iron armour, and tools.

     How to make an anvil in Minecraft

Want to know how to make a Minecraft anvil? It is a great tool to have in your home base as you can use it to repair and rename items, as well as combine enchanted items. The anvil is similar to a grindstone; however, any items used on the Minecraft anvil will keep any applied enchantments. An anvil can become damaged over time and has a 12% chance of damaging every time it's used - this doesn't affect the anvil's function, but it will wear down until it's eventually destroyed. It's impossible to repair an anvil, so you'll need to keep the Minecraft anvil recipe to hand.

An anvil can also be damaged and destroyed by falling. If an air block is below an anvil, it becomes a falling anvil and damages any player or mob it falls onto. It acts like falling sand, gravel, concrete powder, and dragon eggs. As well as mining for an existing anvil using a pickaxe, you can also craft them in one of the best PC games using the following Minecraft anvil recipe.

It's impossible to overstate how enjoyable RTS games can be. Few things are as satisfying as building up an immense army and simply washing over your foes like a river over stones, erasing their existence as effortlessly as a click.

Starcraft and Age of Empires largely define the genre and are some of the best PC games out there, but indie games like Northgard and Driftland have shown plenty of other voices can be heard. The rise of MOBAs has challenged the RTS scene significantly over the past decade, but this hasn't stopped some worthy games from rising to the top ranks to earn their place in the hall of fame.

     Best Destiny 2 Solar builds for Warlock, Titan, and Hunter

Looking for the best Destiny 2 Solar builds? The Solar rework introduced a number of new ways to customise your character if you're using the Dawnblade, Sunbreaker, or Gunslinger subclass. However, with so many possible grenade, melee, super, and special ability combos, which you can further enhance with fragments, it can be tough to figure out the best build for your Guardian.

The best Destiny 2 Solar build after the 3.0 rework uses the same system of Aspects and Fragments as the Void 3.0 rework that launched with The Witch Queen. In case you're returning from a very long Destiny hiatus, Aspects affect a class-specific ability and also come with a number of slots that can hold Fragments. The effects from Fragments aren't quite as strong, but they're universal across their subclass in the free PC game. The best build boasts Aspects and Fragments that synchronise for massive buffs.

     The best Rainbow Six Siege operators

Want to know the best Rainbow Six Siege operators? This is a very complex shooter - perhaps one of the most intricately designed multiplayer games being played right now. The depth comes from numerous places: the destructible environments, and the design of the maps, but primarily from the unique gadgets, stats, and loadouts offered by each of its playable operators. We have been training with the elite troopers in order to find out which operator is the strongest.

Owing to the game's asymmetric multiplayer gameplay, Rainbow Six Siege operators come in two flavours: attackers and defenders. Currently, there are 60+ Rainbow Six Siege operators to unlock and use in the game. New Rainbow Six Siege operators drop with every season, and you can unlock them early by buying into that season's battle pass, or wait until they're available for general release and use your hard-earned in-game currency. This is earned through completing matches and ticking off daily challenges, so it is good to know which ones to snap up first in order to make collecting the remaining operators even faster.

As you can see in the image, the guest talents that will appear in the concert are Holo ID's first-generation Moona Hoshinova and Ayunda Risu, along with the second generation's Pavolia Reine. All of them have previously collaborated with the English branch talents, although this is the first time joining all of them for a live concert.

Hololive Production also announced a new sale for venue tickets due to the popularity of the event, which will be held on the concert's official ticket site on May 13, 2023. Its initial sale took place back on April 7, 2023, but the tickets sold out in a few hours.

Pokemon TCG Online Live

The Pokemon Company will remove Pokemon Trading Card Game Online (TCG Online) from online storefronts on June 5, 2023. This is due to the fact that Pokemon Trading Card Game Live (TCG Live) will launch on June 8, 2023. Players will be able to transfer their cards and accessories to TCG Live though.

According to the announcement on the official Pokemon website, there will be no more new cards in Pokemon TCG Online, but it will still have Versus Ladder support. If we have product codes for something available before March 1, 2023, then we can still redeem them. The reason why there will be no more new cards or accessories in the game is because the development team wants to focus on Pokemon TCG Live.

You will be able to move your TCG Online account and data over to TCG Live, as well as save all the progress you make in the beta. There are some limitations though. For example, you can't transfer your friends list, in-game currency, or HeartGold & SoulSilver cards to Live. The Pokemon Company states that the reason it will sunset Pokemon TCG Online is to give players the time to move everything to TCG Live. They will still enjoy full access to TCG Online prior to the closure date.

Pokemon Trading Card Game Online will be removed from the app stores and shut down on June 5, 2023. Pokemon Trading Card Game Live will launch on June 8, 2023 for mobile devices, Windows PCs, and Macs. The beta is readily available.

According to the game's Steam page, it will support local co-op and remote play, but we don't see any mention of an online multiplayer option yet.

As for the gameplay, it will be a beat 'em up like other games in the franchise, but will include "roguelite elements" according to the game's official site. You will be able to choose the mission order, and this in turn will define the length, number of enemies, and difficulty of your playthrough.

Among some of the new mechanics, it will introduce a new tag team playstyle which will let players quickly change characters to get out of danger or complete a combo. There will also be an in-game shop to unlock characters, tips, and more via tokens earned on each playing session.

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons is planned for a Summer 2023 release. It will be coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Switch.

Which Genshin Impact Voice Actors Are in Honkai: Star Rail

Due to the nature of the business, you'll often see a lot of video game voice actors showing up over and over again, and this happens with both Genshin Impact and Honkai: Star Rail. The cast for HoYoVerse's latest game isn't huge yet. However, there's still some overlap. Especially when it comes to the English cast.

So, here's the list of Honkai: Star Rail characters whose voice actors you probably already heard in Genshin Impact in English.

  • Sushang: Anjali Kunapaneni also plays Dori.
  • Arlan: Dani Chambers also plays Nilou.
  • Asta: Felicia Angelie also plays Mona.
  • Hook: Felicia Angelie also plays Mona.
  • Jing Yuan: Alejandro Saab also plays Cyno.
  • Natasha: Elizabeth Maxwell also plays Rosaria.
  • Pela: Xanthe Huynh also plays Baizhu's snake Changsheng
  • Yanqing: Amber May also plays Dehya.

There are also a few Honkai: Star Rail character voice actors you probably already heard before too. This is because they are present in Genshin Impact in Japanese or Chinese. Himeko is voiced by Rie Tanaka, who also plays Lisa. You also may have recognized Tao Dian is both Arlan and Hu Tao in Chinese. Not to mention Guiniang plays both Asta and Kokomi. And while Bronya's English and Japanese voice actresses don't overlap, Xie Ying plays her in Honkai: Star Rail and Keqing in Genshin Impact.

Also, as a reminder, because Bronya/Silver Wolf, Himeko, Kafka, Li Sushang, Natasha/Raven, Seele, and Welt Yang are all launch characters present in Honkai Impact 3rd, then you may recognize them from voicing those characters in Honkai: Star Rail.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.

What Are the Best Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe Blessings?

In the Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe, you can essentially pull together a team of your characters to go through an isolated dungeon with randomized possible enemies and events, earning Blessings to make things easier for yourself along the way. There are 22 for each available path, and a lot of great ones appear! I've even found that some of the one-star ones, the "weakest" possible ones, can be as useful as a two or three-star one with the right party and in the right circumstances. There are some that really do stand out as being particularly helpful though, as they can be your "best" pick regardless of your team or tactics, so here are some Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe paths and Blessings I'd recommend.

Try and stick to one path's Blessings in Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe

Okay, so, if you get enough Blessings from one path in Honkai: Star Rail, you'll gain access to a special ability in battles that functions like a character's Ultimate. So say you collect an array of The Hunt blessings. Then you'll have a gauge in battle that fills and, once full, lets you unleash a powerful AOE attack on all enemies.

So once you see yourself starting to "commit" to a path for a run, make sure you go all out to ensure you get that special Path Resonance ability.

Also, just know that initially you'll only have Elation, Hunt, Preservation, Remembrance Blessings available. You won't see ones from, say, Abundance or Nihility until you're further into later Worlds.

[gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="961671" link="file"]

Offensive Blessings to watch for in the Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe.

Ones that you'll want to prioritize are The Hunt, The Destruction, and The Elation. These all tend to focus on different types of damage. The Hunt can increase your attack, action priority and speed, and critical hits. The Destruction is all about increasing damage. Many of its blessings also increase your attack power when your health gets low. The Elation focuses on follow-up attacks. Even if you don't have someone like March 7th or Seele who will follow-up around, keep it in mind for some properties.

Now, while the best of these Blessings will come down to what you're doing in Honkai: Star Rail's Simulated Universe, these are some handy early ones to consider if you see them:

  • The Elation - Auto-Harmonica: Whitest Night
  • The Elation - Champion's Dinner: Cat's Cradle.
  • The Elation - The Painted Albatross
  • The Elation - Portrait of a Man on Fire
  • The Elation - Slaughterhouse No. 4: Rest in Peace
  • The Hunt - Blessed Bow and Arrow
  • The Hunt - Celestial Annihilation
  • The Hunt - Flowing Mist

[gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="961672" link="file"]

Supportive Blessings to watch for in the Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe.

For defensive and supportive Blessings, you should follow The Preservation, The Nihility, The Remembrance, The Abundance, and even The Hunt paths. The Preservation is all about creating shields, and then offering benefits if you have one. The Nihility focuses on negative status effects. The Remembrance is all about freezing opponents, even if you aren't using someone like March 7th or Gepard. The Abundance Blessings will heal the party. Meanwhile, The Hunt involves increasing speed.

Again, I'm sure you'll find your own Honkai: Star Rail's Simulated Universe Blessings that work best for you, but these are also initial ones to think about:

  • The Hunt - Auspicious Star
  • The Hunt - Monster-Expelling Rainbow
  • The Preservation - Construct: Assemble
  • The Preservation - Divine Construct: Metastatic Field
  • The Preservation - Interstellar Construct: Quadrangular Pyramid
  • The Preservation - Interstellar Construct: Safe Load
  • The Preservation - Interstellar Construct: Shear Structure
  • The Preservation - Construct: Compensation
  • The Preservation - Construct: Sentinel
  • The Remembrance - Experience: Lost Memory
  • The Remembrance - Experience: Responsive Excitement
  • The Remembrance - Perfect Experience: Innocence
  • The Remembrance - Perfect Experience: Reticence
  • The Remembrance - Ultimate Experience: Maverick
  • The Remembrance - Ultimate Experience: Sentimentality

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 Comic Appearing on Free Comic Book Day 1

Sony announced it will release a free prequel comic in preparation for Marvel's Spider-Man 2 during Free Comic Book Day on May 6, 2023. This comic will be set after the events in Spider-Man: Miles Morales and will introduce a new villain to the game's universe. In addition, Sony also announced Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered will become available as a standalone purchase.

Here is a closer look at its official cover, which features both Peter Parker and Miles Morales. Both of them are wearing suits they appeared in during the events of the previous Insomniac games.
[gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="961667" link="file"]

This new comic will be titled "Marvel's Spider-Man 2 #1," and it will explore what has happened with Peter Parker, Miles Morales, and Mary Jane Watson since the last game. Moreover, the comic will explore what the heroes will do to confront a magic-user villain under the name of The Hood.

It is worth remembering that Sony did something similar for the release of Marvel's Spider-Man back in 2018 with a tie-in novel by the name of "Marvel's Spider-Man: Hostile Takeover." This book followed the events leading to the first game, such as the conflict between Wilson Fisk and Norman Osborn as the city mayor and Peter and MJ's breakup.

Furthermore, Sony also announced that Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered for PS5 will be available as a separate purchase for $49.99 on late May 2023. You could only get this game as side content in Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales Ultimate Edition until now. You can also get the remaster for PS5 as an upgrade for $10 if you have already previously bought the original game either physically or digitally. However, you must actually own the copy, as the upgrade path isn't available if you got it via a PlayStation Plus subscription.

This news appears just a few days after a Sony financial report seemed to confirm the launch of the new Spider-Man game for this fiscal year with a possible release window for Fall 2023.

Marvel's Spider-Man 2 will be arriving exclusively on the PS5 in Fall 2023. People can get the prequel comic in the US from a comic store participating in Free Comic Book Day on May 6, 2023. Thoseof us worldwide can get it digitally on the Marvel Unlimited app and the Marvel official site on May 6, 2023 as well.

Honkai Impact 3rd Dreamweaver Battlesuit Attacks Detailed

Ahead of the 6.6 update, HoYoVerse offered more details going over all the attacks the Honkai Impact 3rd Dreamweaver battlesuit for Misteln "Hare" Schariac will use. It specified she's a MECH physical damage dealer. Her goal on the battlefield is to constantly attack. In addition, it went over how her Ultimate changes her form and playstyle. There will also be the Prophetic Dreams javelin in the Expansion Supply after 6.6, and there will be Alexandra (T, M, B) stigmatas designed for her. People can also craft a Mirage Spearhead javelin she can use.

The Dreamweaver Adaptability of Life normal attack has between three and four attacks, though the combo with four requires the Seeds of Idea from her weapon skill. If you used her Ultimate and she's in her astral form, it always involves a four-hit combo. In addition to attack, she can use Seeds of Idea to defend. Her astral form's weapon skill involves throwing spears.

The Dreamweaver battlesuit Ultimate in Honkai Impact 3rd is Transience of Dream. That causes physical damage and transforms her to her astral form. This lasts for a limited time, though you can physically choose to end it. It involves more physical damage and the potential for AOE attacks.

We also already know about another Honkai Impact 3rd battlesuit that will appear as part of the next update. The Terminal Aide 0017 for Number 17 is also going to be included in the patch. That will only be an SP battlesuit, however.

Honkai Impact 3rd is available on PCs and mobile devices, and the 6.6 update will launch in the near future and bring the Dreamweaver Battlesuit with it.

Genshin Impact Kaveh Gameplay Trailer Shows Him Using Mehrak

Yuri "Dainsleif" Lowenthal is back once again with a Genshin Impact Collected Miscellany gameplay trailer, which discusses Kaveh. The new Dendro-user joined the game with the latest 3.6 banners. The four-star is a focus unit there, but also joins the general pool of possible gacha pulls. His latest video highlights how he uses his claymore in battle, which his AI toolbox companion Mehrak helps him handle.

First, the video looks at his Utility Passive. If you use him to craft in Serenitea Pot, you might get some of the materials back. After that, it looks at his actual attacks. It begins with his Normal attack's standard and charged version. His Elemental Skill does AOE Dendro damage and makes Dendro Cores burst. Kaveh can also heal his own health when that happens if you get his first Ascension passive. His Elemental Burst also deals AOE Dendro damage and changes it so he deals Dendro damage with attacks when it is active.

Here's the full video:

This is the second Collected Miscellany Genshin Impact gameplay trailer to appear this week. The previous one looked at the new five-star Baizhu.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and Kaveh is now always available as a four-star on every banner. He'll be a focus unit on the Baizhu and Ganyu banners until May 23, 2023.

See Some Street Fighter 6 Arcade Mode Illustrations

Capcom offered a bit of a tease suggesting what the Street Fighter 6 Arcade mode will offer, showing off three illustrations. In past entries like Street Fighter 5, we could see special pieces of art as they went through characters storylines. These will return in the latest game. In addition to playable fighters, some other familiar faces appear in the shared screenshots.

The first image is from Guile's Arcade mode. It shows him getting his hair cut. A number of other characters also appear in the background. It almost seems like a younger version of Luke could be behind Guile waiting.

The second Street Fighter 6 Arcade mode teaser illustration seems like it is from Manon's storyline. In addition to showing her, Seth and Lily appear in the background.

Finally, the third image features newcomer Jamie. It's the only one of the three to actually have text appear with the illustration. However, there are no spoilers and it only features him establishing who he is. It does note in the UI that someone could turn off subtitles or skip the story segment.

Street Fighter 6 will appear on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC on June 2, 2023. It will also show up in arcades. Some of the game's characters will also appear in the 2023 Street Fighter Swimsuit Special comic.

New Honkai: Star Rail Story Trailer Discusses the Aeons

In Honkai: Star Rail, all characters belong to paths that determine their moveset's behaviors, with beings known as Aeons tied to all of them. People can "encounter" them in the Simulated Universe we can find on Herta Space Station. Now the newest HoYoVerse "Fables About the Stars Part 1" trailer features a fortune teller going over the series' lore.

The Honkai: Star Rail Aeons "Fables About the Stars" begins by showing Nanook from The Destruction path. This Aeon also appeared in a cameo during the game's introduction. That's followed by The Hunt's Lan. Nous from The Erudition follows. Then, The Abundance's Yaoshi appears. After that, art for The Nihility's IX, The Preservation's Qlipoth, The Harmony's Xipe, The Elation's Aha, The Voracity's Oroboros, The Beauty's Idrila, The Remembrance's Fuli, and The Propagation's Tayzzyronth follow. Before the end, there are brief peeks at Mythus from The Enigmata and HooH from The Equilibrium. It ends with the fortune teller saying "This is the path you should walk, they say. Akivili. depart once more, Akivili." For reference, Akivili is tied to The Trailblaze path.

Many of these Aeons show up during events in the Honkai: Star Rail Simulated Universe. When you first start, you'll only see Aha, Fuli, Lan, and Qlipoth in interactions and bestowing "blessings" tied to their paths. However, more will appear as the game goes on.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.
