WonderCon, held every year in LA at the Anaheim Convention Center, is a show we haven't been able to get to for a few years, so it's great that we're now back and able to run a feature on some of the incredible cosplay present at the event for 2023.

For the second time in two years, things in the Battlefield community—or at least the worst elements of it—have gotten so toxic that it has led to some pretty stern requests for people to get a grip and cut it out.

Honkai: Star Rail Adventure Missions can sometimes ask us to help influence the ending. In "To the Faint Star," we need to decide whether to tell the truth or a lie. The same happens in another questline called "From Xianzhou with Love." It involves a members-only Foxian Beauty Chat. You're tasked with aiding Asta in helping a Herta Space Station researcher enamored with a possible scam artist called Daiqing. Along the way, you'll need to find an "in" to talk to her "manager," try to lure her into scamming you, and then deciding what to do with the person behind the persona once you hit the end. There are a lot of steps to "From Xianzhou with Love" in Honkai: Star Rail, so here's how it all goes.
Editor's note: There will be spoilers for the Honkai: Star Rail mission "From Xianzhou with Love"below.
First, you'll talk with both Asta and Wen Furui to get a better grasp of the situation on Herta Space Station. It will end with you heading to the Xianzhou Luofu to deliver the item Wen Furui's Gift and investigate the Foxian Beauty Diaqing.
Once you get to the Central Starskiff Haven, you'll need to try and find your Daiqing contact. This is one of those highlighted spaces where you'll have to find and talk to three folks. In each case, you're supposed to say the keyphrase, "Acquaintance from the mortal coil, luxurious gifts from beyond." The three people to speak to here all have a name over their heads, making them easy to identify when you're near them. You want to talk to the Passerby Hunk, and Sociable Foxian Man.
Here are screenshots I took showing what each one looks like and where they are in the area.
You won't find your contact. Wen Furui will text you with a new location to visit. Go there and you'll find Qingque. She's looking for Daiqing too, as one of the people she plays Mahjong with got sucked in by this "Foxian Beauty Chat" too. The two of you decide to use Wen Furui's gift and a cycrane delivery to track Daiqing down. This sends you to Cloudford. Chasing it down leads you to the person's "manager." You're given a "premium membership."
It's time to head back to Asta at Herta Space Station. She allows you to use some of her money so Daiqing can "scam" you. Daiqing offers to sell you some of her grandfather's tea. You can opt to transfer 50,000,000 or 200,000,000. (I went for the latter, as it was more comical.) You'll be blocked, and an alt account called Qingster will offer to give you the money back if you go to Cloudford.
Now, I chose the option of forcing Daiqing to be turned in to the authorities. I got the "Cyberfraud" achievement as a result. At which point, he was forced to make restitution to the people he wronged. I did check in with a friend who chose to make Daiqing reveal his identity, which resulted in them getting a different achievement (Tootsie), but a similar outcome of Wen Furui transferring to Xianzhou Luofu.

As with Advance Wars and some other games, Nintendo doesn't say which voice actor voices which character in the credits for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Instead, it listed all of the people playing major characters at once. However, many of the performers took to social media to confirm their roles. (Though, in the cases of some, they're withholding their virtual identities for a time.) Still, thanks to those reveals, we already know a number of people who are either back or debuting as certain residents of Hyrule.
Here is the list of all of the English voice actors for major The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom characters who confirmed their roles online.
We also know Amelia (Mipha) Gotham, Heather Gonzalez, Katherine "Kate" Higgins, Sean (Revali) Chiplock, and Daniel Riordan play major characters. From the story segments, I'd say Higgins is Purah, though the actress has yet to confirm she plays the role.
The credits also listed the following people as English Voice Support for the game:

While Overwatch 2 is still under a year old, it's very much a continuation of the original game that launched back in 2016. As a result, it can be intimidating for new players to get into Overwatch 2, since they have to make sense of a roster of over 30 characters while going up against players who have potentially been playing the game for seven years. Thankfully, there are several heroes that are beginners friendly and we've compiled a guide to the best Overwatch 2 ones to try out.
If you've ever played a shooter like Halo or Call of Duty, then Soldier 76 will feel familiar. He has a gun, self-healing, mini rockets, and an ultimate that allows you to lock onto enemies. Add in his sprint ability and you have a character that's good in most situations and great for beginners who are still getting a sense for the flow of Overwatch 2. Plus he's got a ton of great skins.
[gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="962539" link="file"]
Edgy. Dark. Brooding. Great for beginners! That's the whole deal with the hero Reaper in Overwatch 2. His dual shotguns work well up close and you'll want to be in the thick of the action. With every piece of damage you do, you activate Reaper's life steal ability which heals you slightly and rewards you for being in the frontline. Also, Reaper has a fade ability that lets him retreat without taking damage which is another nice aspect of his kit. He's great for beginners who want to dive head-first into the fray, while not getting completely eviscerated.
[gallery columns="1" size="full" ids="962540" link="file"]
Moira attac! Moira protec! Moira is a great choice for beginners. She has high healing output with her Biotic Orb and Biotic Grasp, while also being a formidable offensive healer. Her damage orb and lock-on damage make her a great choice for 1v1 fights and for finishing off other supports and DPS characters. Her ultimate allows her to stay in the backline and does damage to enemies while healing allies. If that wasn't enough, Moira has a quick fade ability that lets her reposition quickly, making her great for beginners. She's not the most exciting healer but you got to start somewhere.
One button to heal. One button to boost damage. Stand. Heal. Boost. That's generally the start for Mercy players. In terms of getting a sense of the game, Mercy's base playstyle allows you to hold back a bit and feel like a part of the action, without having to rely too heavily on mechanics and quick decision-making. The great thing about her kit is that her ultimate flips the script, as it gives her boosted flight and speed that entices players to pull out their blaster and take on low-health enemies or finish off tanks. Once you get more comfortable with Mercy there's a high skill ceiling involved in her movement abilities and the decision on when to heal, when to boost damage, and when to resurrect allies.
Orisa never stops shooting, she has an ability that eats incoming damage for a couple of seconds, and she possesses a super fun lance that she can use to throw and stun enemies. In short, there's a lot to like about Orisa. She does well to stay alive and also is able to isolate and eliminate squishier enemies while countering other tanks. Her ultimate is very close range and a little on the weaker side, but the character does well enough to stay alive and impactful to make her a stable choice for new Overwatch 2 players.
He's fun, ok? While the other characters on the list are here because they have simple abilities and are able to stay alive and sustain for long periods, Reinhardt is worth trying because he's super fun. As a huge German man with a hammer and a shield, you'll feel an insatiable desire to charge into the fight. Don't fight it. While charging in isn't recommended at high levels, it's generally fun and effective for beginners. Also, his ultimate slams enemies in front of him to the ground, allowing you to swing your hammer and use your fire strike. REINHARDT, REINHARDT, REINHARDT!!
Who do you think is the most beginner-friendly character in Overwatch 2 and, more importantly, which one of the heroes is your go-to?
Overwatch 2 is available on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC.

In The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom you can reveal large portions of the map by activating towers. Doing so often requires you to take a more creative approach than is immediately apparent. Here is our guide on how to activate the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Tears of the Kingdom – how to activate Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower You will find Sahasra Slope southeast from Lookout Landing and north of Mable Ridge, in the West Necluda region. When you approach the tower, you meet with a worker named Billson. He can't get the building's sliding front door to open. He talks about a cave that exists beneath the tower. That's a clue. To activate the Sahasra Slope Skyview Tower, you must explore the caves beneath the tower and use the Arise ability to arrive on the other side of the tricky door. Start by descending along the slope to find an opening on its west side. Screenshot by PC Invasion ...

The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom presents players with a sprawling world full of people and monsters. As you make your way around it, you'll find that resources are quite scarce. To get the best gear, you need to spend Rupees. Here is our guide to some of the best ways to make money in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom. Tears of the Kingdom – best ways to make money Early in the game, you need to visit four general regions to learn more about what happened to Zelda. Hebra is one suggested location. It is a bitterly cold region where even the elements are against you. Fortunately, a Rito Village shopkeeper stocks armor that protects you from the ridiculous temperatures (it's especially useful when you are seeking out the Hebra South Summit Cave frog location). Less fortunately, that gear costs a lot of Rupees. This dynamic is common. Armor in Hyrule is expensive in general. Therefore, you need to get good at finding more currency. ...
