It's redundant now to declare Half-Life 2 one of the best PC games of all time. It's like saying, "The Godfather; good movie, right?" Two decades on from Half-Life 2's initial release, this remains as true as it ever was.
Replay it in 2023 - the year in which the FPS game itself is set - and you'll be treated to countless iconic, hair-raising moments and set pieces each underlined by the stunning technical achievement of Source engine, freshly unveiled alongside Half-Life 2. Beyond the groundbreaking advancements, visuals, and gameplay is the story, itself expertly crafted as if created by some master of dystopian science fiction.
Amid all this, it's all too easy to forget that Half-Life 2's opening chapter, Point Insertion, was - and is still - perfect. And you don't just need to take our word for it: we have the evidence.

It's funny how some aspects of game design are so ubiquitous that we stop questioning them, or even noticing them. After decades spent playing video games, I know that if I look behind the waterfall, there's likely to be some sort of shiny goodie to collect. If I head left rather than right at the start of a level, I'm bound to find a juicy secret. There are conventions. Traditions. I can't remember a time when games didn't have giant lifts - and yet, I'm not entirely sure why they're there. I'm not talking about the regular kind of lifts that you pile into, usually at the end of a level, to transition from one part of the game to another; those ones have historically been used to hide lengthy loading times, like the interminably long lifts of Mass Effect.
What I mean is the lifts that are essentially tennis-court-sized moving platforms, usually with little more than a flimsy guard rail around the edge to stop elevator enjoyers from plunging down the shaft. Even more specifically, I'm talking about the diagonally moving elevators that trundle slowly into the depths, often to some nefarious laboratory. There's a good example in the Resident Evil 2 remake, where you fight the final boss on an inclined elevator as it slowly, ever so slowly, descends towards the train that will grant your escape. So where did these giant elevators come from? And why do developers keep putting them in their games? I set out to answer both questions, and went somewhere unexpected.

The Xianzhou Luofu "Fired" mission in Honkai: Star Rail is one with a lot of moving parts, what with counting starskiffs, finding lost notes, hunting down the starskiff hit-and-run suspect, and trying to convince Luhui to not fire Mei the maid. It's a lot to deal with in the game! It might also leave you wondering "what if," since the Trailblazer can make a lot of dialogue choices.
Editor's Note: There will be Honkai: Star Rail "Fired" mission spoilers below, including details about whether or not Luhui will fire Mei.
Things start out with the Honkai: Star Rail "Fired" mission seeming like a standard observation task, as you'll report to Tantan at Central Starskiff Haven in Xianzhou Luofu. The first part involves counting starskiffs and keeping track of their colors. So the first question just asks, "How many white passenger starskiffs went past?" The correct answer is three. However, when starting the second task, you'll see a blue starskiff come out of nowhere and hit another one.
A woman named Mei is injured, and you'll be tasked with contacting her next of kin or someone who knows her. She's more consumed with finding her lost notes, which leads to the next part of the Honkai: Star Rail "Fired" mission. Two of them actually feature the number you need for Luhui, her employer. Fortunately, Tingyun lent you Diting. You can then check the immediate vicinity for the two specific notes. You'll find them at the spots shown in the screenshots below.
The step after that involves checking in with witnesses to the accident with Tantan. They're the only two people in the highlighted areas who offer an "inquire" prompt when you approach them. You can find them at the positions below.
All of the other points in this questline direct you to specifically highlighted points. However, as you start to help Tantan end his investigation, there will be a few other questions you'll need to answer. Once you get a photo of the accident, for example, you'll need to tell Tantan that the offending starskiff is "the third one from the left." Also, when you find the hit-and-run driver, you need to submit evidence to prove guilt. I found using the photograph of the scene of the crime worked best.
This prompts a fight against an enemy from the area. After which, you'll talk with Luhui and Mei again. Once you see their final talk, you'll get 1 Refined Aetther, 25 Strale, 40 Stellar Jades, 250 Trailblaze EXP, and 15,000 Credits.
As for whether or not the Honkai: Star Rail "Fired" quest ends with Luhui definitively deciding to fire Mei or not, you get a definitive answer the day after finishing it. I chose to select responses that attempted to convince Luhui not to layoff her employee. However, for me the quest ended with her still fired. The next day you open the game however, you'll get a text message from Luhui explaining she decided not to fire Mei.
Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.

The strongest Chesnaught will be the next 7-star Tera Raid in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It'll run from May 12-15, 2023 and May 19-22, 2023. As a note, Chesnaught and its pre-evolutionary forms are not native to Paldea. So this will be our only chance for trainers to catch one this generation unless you trade.
Like other 7-star Tera Raids in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, the Chesnaught will come with a Mightiest Mark. It will have a rock Tera Type. In previous games, Rollout was the only rock-type move that the Chespin line could naturally learn. So this Tera Raid Chesnaught might know something like Rock Slide or Stone Edge, which are moves that you would normally need to teach via TM.
Chesnaught, which is the final form of Chespin, debuted in Pokemon X and Y as the Grass-type starter. It's a grass/fighting type and looks like a cross between a giant hedgehog and an armadillo. So far, the only other Kalos starter to appear as a Tera Raid Pokemon is Greninja, which was the Water-type. Delphox is the final form of Fennekin, and it will likely join its compatriots in Paldea later on.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are readily available on the Nintendo Switch. The Chesnaught Tera Raid Battle event will run from May 12-15, 2023 and May 19-22, 2023.

Honkai: Star Rail is a game where even four-star characters can be the best, and Tingyun is an especially helpful one with the right Relic set and Light Cone build. Like her and Pela are both extraordinarily helpful. Increasing her attack and making great use of her Blessing ability and energy regeneration is key for making sure characters like Seele get to use their Ultimates more often.
What are the best Light Cones for a Tingyun build in Honkai: Star Rail?
The best possible Light Cone for your Tingyun build in Honkai: Star Rail is the five-star But the Battle Isn't Over. This is partially because of its "When the wearer uses their Skill, the next ally taking action (except the wearer) deals 30% more DMG for 1 turn(s)" part of its base ability. Tingyun is all about increasing a target ally's attack and adding Lightning damage to it, and this increases that further. That Light Cone's "Increases the wearer's Energy Regeneration Rate by 10% and regenerates 1 Skill Point when the wearer uses their Ultimate on an ally" part also pairs perfectly with her Ultimate, which also increases the target's energy and damage. Bronya may be on that 'card," but it's basically made for Tingyun.
For three-star ones, I'd say Meshing Cogs or Chorus are great. The former helps her get energy faster, so you can use her Ultimate on an ally sooner. The latter increases everyone's attack by a certain percent, which greatly benefits her Skill.
As for four-stars, there are two I'd recommend. One is Carve the Moon, Weave the Clouds. It will either increase everyone's attack, increase everyone's critical damage, or increase everyone's energy regeneration by a set percent each time Tingyun gets her turn, and all three bonuses work perfectly with her kit. The other is Kites from the Past. That cases the ally acting after she uses her Skill to deal extra damage that turn, which is fantastic if it happens to someone Tingyun just "blessed."
What are the best Relic sets for a Tingyun build in Honkai: Star Rail?
I know for a lot of characters, I've tried to recommend two Relic sets for a character. That isn't going to happen with Tingyun. Her Soothing Melody skill relies too heavily on her attack. You have to go with Musketeer of Wild Wheat. It's "ATK increases by 12%" two-piece bonus and "the wearer's SPD increases by 6% and Basic ATK DMG increases by 10%" four piece are too helpful for what you're going to accomplish with her. Stick with that. Go to the Cavern of Corrosion: Path of Drifting at Jarilo-VI's Corridor of Fading Echoes and try and find her pieces that increase her attack and speed as much as possible.
Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development.

VTubers Murasaki Shion and Minato Aqua of Hololive tested positive for COVID-19. The news came from the official Twitter account for the company. The two of them will go on a temporary hiatus in order to recover. The dates of their return will appear on social media.
Shion uploaded a Twitter Voice clip saying that her throat hurts and she feels terrible. She can't speak in a loud voice because of her condition, and she has a fever of about 39 degrees Celsius (102.2 Fahrenheit). She noted that she's barely clinging onto life (hopefully an exaggeration), and that she will return to streaming as soon as she's better.
Minato Aqua also posted several updates on the situation. About ten hours before Cover's announcement, she stated that she's had a fever of 39 degrees Celsius since the day before. She also uploaded a voice clip of herself saying "Yahoo!" twice. We can see her voice sounds very hoarse compared to normal. She stated that she only went out once during Golden Week, which was when she caught the virus.
Both Murasaki Shion and Minato Aqua are on hiatus due to COVID-19. Laplus Darkness, another Hololive VTuber, is also on break due to the virus. More information on the three's return will appear on Cover's social media accounts when they recover.

As part of the various Splatfest events in the Splatoon series, Nintendo releases official art. So for Splatoon, we'd see the Squid Sisters Callie and Maries engaged in activities for the festival, and so on. Now Nintendo's Japanese branch released a virtual gallery online that shows the imagery created for all three games' special events.
The official site doesn't show the winners for the Splatoon, Splatoon 2, and Splatoon 3 Splatfest events, only the art. Each one shows what the question was for that one, as well as what the two sides were. In the case of situations where there were different topics, there are buttons that you can click to see the different options. For example, the July 2017 Splatoon 2 Splatfest was Rock vs Pop in Japan and Cake vs Ice Cream in North America, Europe, and Oceania. So if you scroll to that event in the virtual gallery, it initially shows Pearl and Marina with the Rock vs Pop art, and clicking the button for other regions shows the Off the Hook members with cake and ice cream.
The gallery also covers art from special collaborations as well. For example, there is the image for the May 2018 Sanrio Splatfests. The Deep Cut The Legend of Zelda Splatfest imagery showed up as well.
Splatoon is available on the Nintendo Wii U, while Splatoon 2 and 3 are on the Switch.

There's a new line of Persona 5 Royal character merchandise. Otaku Lamps announced its new collection. There are nine lamps total in the collection. Each one is an acrylic stand based on members of the Phantom Thieves. The normal retail price for each one is $39.99, though they are temporarily on sale for $34.99 each. While they are noted to be based on the updated version of the game, there isn't one for Kasumi "Violet" Yoshizawa.
Eight of the nine Persona 5 Royal character lamps feature members of the Phantom Thieves. You can get Joker, Ryuji "Skull" Sakamoto, Morgana, Ann "Panther" Takamaki, Yusuke "Fox" Kitagawa, Makoto "Queen" Niijima, Futaba "Oracle" Sakura, and Haru "Noir" Okumura. The ninth design features the Phantom Thieves insignia hat with mask, rather than Goro "Crow" Akechi or Violet.
Here's how all of the lamps look both in their packaging and while in use. Each one has 16 different color options when in use. There are also different modes that offer static light or strobe and active effects.
Persona 5 is available on the PS3 and PS4, while Persona 5 Royal is available on the PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC. The Persona 5 Royal acrylic character lamps are available at Otaku Lamps and ship everywhere except Japan.

Shonen Jump added yet another new manga series, with this one being Do Retry. It is a boxing series by Jun Kirarazaka, who previously worked on Bone Collection. It is also a period piece that takes place after World War II. The first chapter is already live on the Manga Plus and Viz Media sites, with additional ones appearing weekly.
Do Retry stars Aozora Okami, the teenage son of a boxer who was sent off to war. After the bombings, him and his younger sister Akari are left as war orphans doing their best to survive. When its discovered Akari has tuberculosis, Aozora ends up going to confront some men who stole from him. It's then that his ability to get back up after taking a punch and right hook are noticed by a woman who thinks he'd be suited to become a boxer.
This series follows two other debuts in April 2023. Shonen Jump added Tenmaku Cinema at the beginning of that month. It follows a high schooler who's "possessed" by a deceased screenwriter who wants him to get his final work made. Kill Blue, a series about an assassin turned into a kid, is the other.
People can see new Shonen Jump Do Retry manga chapters every Sunday. The second chapter will arrive on May 14, 2023.

VShojo released two new videos following the story of a new possible VTuber labeled as a "genius." Each video has been posted both on both the English and Japanese Twitter accounts with respective narration and subtitles. The company has not shared an official name yet, only referring to the project by #IQ999 on each post.
Check out the IQ999 VTuber teaser videos from the VShojo Twitter account in the thread below.
The animated videos tell the story of a child test subject, acknowledged for her impressive intelligence, who escapes from a secret laboratory where she is being held. From what can be seen, she is referred to as "genius." Among her test results appears that she has an IQ of 999.
Many fans have been speculating this could be some sort of preliminary teaser for a new talent joining the agency. It should be noted that VShojo held auditions for new talents back in August 2021, but since then the Japanese branch only consists of Kson and Nazuna Amemiya.
Moreover, in April 2023 three talents Nyanners, Veibae, and Silvervale left the agency after deciding not to renew their contracts. However, these VTubers will still be active and using their own personas but as independent content creators.
So far VShojo released only two videos related to IQ999 in May 2023. However, it is possible that more animations will be released in the coming days possibly prior to the official announcement of a new project.

Cosmic horrors abound in Darkest Dungeon II, a game is bleak as its predecessor. The stress inducing aspects of Darkest Dungeon are back and more nail-biting than ever. But what the sequel offers is a new way to tackle challenges by adding a wealth of new mechanics that will play into whether you walk away from encounters victorious or at the brink of self-destruction. It doesn't necessarily reinvent what makes Darkest Dungeon so good to begin with, but instead builds upon its core strengths to create something more engaging.
Darkest Dungeon II requires the player to fail in order to progress, which feels almost antithetical to the original by design. Yes, you can trudge on through the game with minimal upgrades or even with the four starter characters. This is entirely possible, but I wouldn't recommend it if you want the full experience. Obtaining candles by completing objectives during your runs, such as tackling certain encounters, will allow you to unlock restorative and curative items, accessories for your carriage, and even other characters like the Flagellant and Vestal.
Failure reaps its own rewards, and it helps create an entirely new attitude when tackling the more roguelike elements of Darkest Dungeon II. Thankfully, the game itself does follow a familiar framework, which won't leave those who enjoyed the original game feeling dissatisfied or alienated. Instead of picking a different "size" of map, players will pick a region and explore a generated path where they can pick routes similar to Slay the Spire. Each of these routes features a specific destination point, which then narrows out into a boss encounter as you reach the end.
After completing a boss, which can be fairly challenging depending on how your run leading up to the encounter has gone, you then progress to the next chapter of the game. The difficulty only ramps up from here, but there is an item you can affix to your carriage to make the journey less stressful. However, it feels negligible and I didn't feel that using it made the game any easier. But maybe that was because I tend to play these games in the same fashion as I do Souls titles, and that's min-maxing and throwing myself at whatever comes my way until I can simply brute force my way through the game. That doesn't really work in Darkest Dungeon, or Darkest Dungeon II, as you will want to strategize and memorize what kind of status effects and enemies appear in each area.
For example, some locales will have enemies who are more susceptible to blight damage, which is a damage over time poison, or others that will generate more stress or even throw back damage over time effects of their own. These can include bleed, burning, and blight. Items unlocked through the candle system can heal these status effects, or character skills. The Plague Doctor is a premium choice as a party member for this reason, since she can increase resistance to status effects and even remove them while healing a bit of damage. That said, characters do feel more balanced overall. Even as you level up their skills as the game constantly provides a challenge and will require you to think over who to heal and when, or what enemies to prioritize over others.
A new mechanic to the game also gives the interaction between characters a bit more texture. Your party can now forge relationships with one another, and raising their affinity can help reduce stress and even provide temporary stat boosts. In early access, this wasn't clearly telegraphed, and it felt like bonds could deteriorate at the blink of an eye. The full release broadcasts this more clearly, so you can actually help build these relationships in a more concentrated effort. That said, you can easily destroy these bonds just as easily as you can build them. And you can face serious repercussions if two party members end up squabbling in the middle of a fight. My Highwayman at one point refused to be healed by my Vestal because they were often at odds with one another, which left him on death's door more times than I could count. You can try to mend these frayed relationships at an inn with specific items, which helps circumvent characters being locked into hating each other until you've completed your excursion. It feels more fair this time around, and wasn't nearly as aggravating as it was in early access.
Obtaining new skills for the individual characters is done through specific segments during which you can unlock memories for individual characters. These sometimes involve stages where certain objectives must be met, but aren't hard enough to actively fail at. Though you will want to tread carefully, as failure means you'll need to give it another shot at another one of these points should it spawn along your journey. I enjoyed the Graverobber's story the most, even though it was effectively elaborated on in one of the short, one-page comics released for the first game. It was interesting to experience the events first-hand, and receiving a new skill as a result was also a good reward. Not that I needed it, because even as barebones as Darkest Dungeon II's story is, I found myself wholly engrossed in it.
I love cosmic horror, and Darkest Dungeon II brings what was once isolated to a hamlet located in the middle of nowhere to a greater stretch of the world. You see the repercussions of the events of the first game, and every time you start a new run you are greeted with a sliver of new lore as to how the world spiraled into the state it is. Another interesting thing is seeing characters that were allies in Darkest Dungeon appear as enemies in specific stages. The Antiquarian, for example, is now traveling with bandits, and it was exciting but also sad to have to kill a character I had grown familiar with over the span of a hundred hours spent with the first game.
Overall, Darkest Dungeon II expands on the series in a way that brings a new kind of freshness to the core experience. Those looking for something identical to the first game may feel disappointed with how progression tracks, or a lack of a more diverse roster of characters. That said, it is bound to keep you entertained for hours on end, and has plenty of new mechanics to engage in that allow for more experimentation and min-maxing.
Darkest Dungeon II is immediately available on PC.
