The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's weapon degradation system was bullshit.

     GTA 6 release date rumours, news, and speculation

When is GTA 6 coming out? Given how many years it takes to create open worlds of the same caliber as GTA 5, it's no surprise that Rockstar Games has already spent years developing GTA 6. However, like most developers, Rockstar prefers to keep its secrets close to its chest until they're close to the end of development, so we may not see any official GTA 6 gameplay for some time.

Early gameplay footage of GTA 6 recently surfaced online, along with lines of source code from the game itself. Rockstar has issued a statement on Twitter that confirms that an unauthorized third party managed to access and download information from their systems, including development footage for the open-world game. However, its statement notes that the developers don't believe this leak should impact the development of their long-term projects or disrupt their live service games.

As a result, he is one of the better characters to use if you're new to fighting games, as nothing he does is particularly complex.

     Roblox music codes May 2023 – the best song IDs

Looking for Roblox music codes? There are thousands of popular songs available to listen to in Roblox, simply by entering music ID codes into your boombox or the radio. Using song IDs, you can play your favourite TikTok songs in games with your friends.

So how do you play music in Roblox? The method varies depending on which game you want to blast your tunes in. Some games allow you free access to the boombox - simply equip and press it to bring up a text box in which you can enter a song ID code. Catalog Heaven is a great place to test the Roblox music codes you find, as it allows you to equip any boombox in the shop and try it out.

In most games, however, you'll need to use the radio to play music. This is usually part of a paid Game Pass - the price of a Game Pass is set by each game developer individually. Once you have access to the radio, you can use it in the same way as the boombox - simply enter the song ID code and press play. Occasionally, tracks are taken down by Roblox, so if a code stops working, you'll have to look for a replacement. Here are the best radio music codes in Roblox that work in May 2023.

     Diablo 4 Sorceress class – the best stats, skills, and talents

Want to know about the Diablo 4 Sorceress? The Sorceress/Sorcerer has been in every Diablo game since the beginning of the series, and there's a good reason for that. Sure, playing as a Barbarian capable of wielding four weapons at once is pretty cool, but the Sorceress has mastered control over fire, ice, and lightning. Let's be honest, that is infinitely more impressive than being able to hold a sword and axe at the same time.

The Sorceress has always been a difficult class to master in the RPG game as her low health pool makes it difficult to stay alive in the heat of battle. If you learn how to control the elements, even the largest swarms of enemies become no match for the Sorceress. Given Blizzard's track record with the Diablo series, we can see Diablo 4 becoming one of the best PC games of the year. Here's everything you need to know about the Sorceress in Diablo 4.

Are you trying to wrap your head around CSGO ranks? 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.

Counter-Strike Global Offensive has continued to grow, now touting a concurrent player count of over 1.8 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.

We recommend keeping a separate installation if you want to switch between GTA Online and a modded GTA 5 single-player experience frequently - back up your game files before making changes. Alternatively, if you're looking to spice things up in multiplayer, head over to our GTA RP server guide, apply to join a roleplay server as an NPC, and live out your dreams of roaming the streets as a vigilante grandma on one of the best PC games ever.

Pac-Man 99 Closing Down

Pac-Man 99 will be delisted soon, as confirmed by Bandai Namco and Nintendo. The free multiplayer title will be removed as a bonus for Nintendo Switch Online members later in 2023. October 8, 2023 is the last day to get it and play online.

Pac-Man 99 players still have a few months left to play the online modes before the game is delisted. Bandai Namco will remove paid custom themes on August 8, 2023. This will be followed by the Pac-Man 99 Deluxe Pack and Mode Unlock DLCs being pulled on September 8, 2023. Finally, the online modes will be shut down and the game will be removed from the eShop on October 8, 2023.

Despite the delisting, Bandai Namco confirmed that previously purchased Pac-Man 99 DLC will allow the game to remain playable. This means that anyone who already has the Deluxe Pack and Mode Unlock DLCs will be able to access the offline modes indefinitely. Previously purchased custom themes will also remain accessible. These DLC packs can also be re-downloaded after the game goes offline.

Pac-Man 99 released in 2021, following the similar battle royale titles Tetris 99 and Super Mario Bros 35. Like those games, players compete to play a variation of Pac-Man, with the goal of surviving longest out of 99 players.

Pac-Man 99 is out now as part of the Nintendo Switch Online service. It will be delisted on October 8, 2023.

Nic Cage Dead by Daylight

Behaviour Interactive confirmed their latest addition to Dead by Daylight will be Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage. This is not a character played by Nicolas Cage. It's the actor himself who will become a playable character. More details will appear on July 5, 2023.

The announcement was made on the official Dead by Daylight Twitter account. In a moody trailer, we hear him whispering about the power of imagination before a CGI version of him walks out of the fog and looks at the camera. Behaviour confirmed that Nicolas Cage will be a Survivor in Dead by Daylight, summoned by The Entity while filming "the role of a lifetime."

Dead by Daylight featured the likenesses of many real-life actors before, but usually we see them in the form of characters they've played. It's not been Bruce Campbell showing up. It's been Ash Williams from The Evil Dead, for example. This is the first time an actor has shown up as themselves.

While this marks his first appearance in a horror game, Nicolas Cage is no stranger to horror in his movie roles. He has appeared in films such as the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation Color Out of Space and the Five Nights at Freddy's inspired Willy's Wonderland. He also infamously appeared in the remake of folk horror movie The Wicker Man. More recently, he has played Dracula in Renfield.

Dead by Daylight is out now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.

tseng final fantasy vii remake

Square Enix shared some trivia on Tseng as he appears in Final Fantasy VII Remake via its Twitter account. To be more specific, it has to do with Tseng's character design and his suit. There are also pictures in the Tweet with close-ups so you can see all the details.

There are four buttons on Tseng's cuff, and they are so close together they're actually stacking on top of each other. Apparently, this is a very difficult thing to accomplish, which shows off the tailor's technique. This makes it a very popular design choice in custom suits. In real life, this particular style is called "waterfall" or "kissing" buttons. According to Square Enix, Tseng's choice in his suit makes his dedication to work very clear. This is likely due to the fact that he has a fairly expensive custom suit as his work outfit.

Here's a closer look at Tseng in Final Fantasy VII Remake.

Ever since the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake, Square Enix tweeted tidbits about the game. This can range from behind-the-scenes details on character designs and scenes, or trivia about the original. Some recent tweets talked about Aerith, Sonon, and Tifa.

Splatoon 3 Challenges

Nintendo revealed details about the new Splatoon 3 Challenges mode added as part of the Sizzle Season. This will be a new online event mode. Challenges will be similar to Splatoon 2's League Battles, where different game modes were rotated on a schedule.

The modes in Challenges will offer new twists on the Splatoon formula beyond the usual match formats. In the Sizzle Season announcement trailer, Nintendo named a few of the challenges, but now the company provided further details. Too Many Trizookas gives everyone access to an unlimited Trizooka special weapon. Foggy Notion drowns the entire stage in fog, making it harder to see your opponents. Finally, Extreme Jump Battle beefs up the jumping physics. We will see more Challenges in future updates.

The first Challenge in Splatoon 3 will be the New Season Challenge, which will take place on June 2-4, 2023, depending on your time zone. According to Nintendo, there will be three time windows across the weekend, each lasting two hours.

This is the latest time-limited event added to Splatoon 3. Other events have included the Eggstra Work and Big Run variants on the Salmon Run mode, as well as the regular Splatfest events. The most recent Splatfest was based on The Legend of Zelda and saw victory for Team Power, representing Ganondorf.

Splatoon 3 is out now for the Nintendo Switch. Sizzle Season kicks off on June 1, 2023.

6.4 Final Fantasy XIV Fan Kit Features Golbez

When Square Enix releases a new Final Fantasy XIV expansions and patches, it also shares an updated fan kit with wallpapers and imagery from it. In May 2023, we'll see the 6.4 patch. Ahead of that, the new drop appeared. This time, the focus is on The Voidcast Dais Final Fantasy XIV trial star Golbez.

As is common with Final Fantasy XIV, Golbez is a character from Final Fantasy IV making a cameo in the MMORPG. There are desktop and mobile wallpaper options. One of the Final Fantasy XIV wallpapers features the name of the 6.4 patch, "The Dark Throne," while the other shows the Final Fantasy XIV Endwalker logo. Likewise, the two social media banners offer the same options.

As confirmed during the Letter from the Producer Live Part LXXVII, both The Voidcast Dais and The Voidcast Dais (Extreme) will bring Golbez to Final Fantasy XIV in patch 6.4. Those will be added alongside the new The Aetherfont Dungeon and Pandaemonium: Anabaseios Raid. There will also be a Pandaemonium: Anabaseios (Savage) option, though it will appear a week after 6.4's debut.

Final Fantasy XIV is immediately available on PC, PS4, and PS5, and patch 6.4 will release on May 23, 2023.

blue protocol broadcast

Bandai Namco announced a Blue Protocol Live Broadcast #7 will take place on May 23, 2023 at 4am PT/7am ET. In addition, the website will be down for maintenance from 9-9:30pm PT/12-12:30am ET on May 22, 2023. This will likely be a fairly major broadcast, so we might get important information such as a release date.

The sixth Blue Protocol actually consisted of three separate parts. While the first one was almost two hours long, 6.1 to 6.3 were both under an hour. These livestreams still provided big information for the game. For example, they informed us about the benchmark program where you could play with the character creator, as well detailed character classes to us. But since this will be #7 and not #6.4, we might be able to get a long stream once again.

Since Bandai Namco still has not shared adjustments based on feedback from its network test, we might hear some of that during the stream as well. That test ran from March 31-April 2, 2023. As mentioned earlier, since the game will come out in Spring 2023, this upcoming stream might be the one where Bandai Namco reveals the release date. The website going down for maintenance before the stream may also indicate important information will appear on it around then.

Blue Protocol is in development for the PS5, Xbox Series X, and Windows PC. It will first come out in Japan on PC in Spring 2023. After that, it will come out on other platforms and regions later in 2023. The Blue Protocol Live Broadcast #7 stream will be at 4am PT/7am ET on May 23, 2023.

Bandai Namco Elden Ring DLC Tekken 8 Armored Core VI

In an upcoming interview with Famitsu, Bandai Namco Entertainment CEO Nao Udagawa expressed that the company plans to focus on Armored Core 6, Elden Ring, and Tekken 8 for the time being. It is also considering implementing games in its Gundam Metaverse. It wants to make more content for the Idolmaster franchise too. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

Both Armored Core 6 and Tekken 8 are still in development. However, they will be the two major releases that Bandai Namco publishes in 2023. So the company will put a lot of time and money into promoting them. This also goes for the Elden Ring DLC, Shadow of the Erdtree, which is the award-winning game's first major expansion.

Other information from the interview focused on upcoming platforms, Idolmaster, and Baten Kaitos. For starters, Udagawa reiterated that Bandai Namco will choose release platforms based on the target audience for the title. It plans on releasing more Idolmaster content in the future. As well, the reason why it remastered Baten Kaitos was due to audience demand. So if there is a game from Bandai Namco that a lot of fans really want to see again, it is possible that enough voices might make the company consider it.

The Shadow of the Erdtree expansion for Elden Ring, Tekken 8, and Armored Core 6 are in development. Armored Core VI will come out on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, and Windows PC on August 25, 2023. The Elden Ring DLC and Tekken 8 do not have a release date yet.

Fu Xuan Talks About Jing Yuan in New Honkai: Star Rail Video

One of the ways HoYoVerse introduces new and upcoming Honkai: Star Rail characters is via talk show-like video segments. Given a new five-star debuts on May 17, 2023, there's a new "Keeping up with Star Rail" to go with it. As usual, it means a chance to see some in-game footage while hearing about a new additional. For this installment of the Honkai: Star Rail show, Fu Xuan shares what she knows about Jing Yuan.

Initially, this Honkai: Star Rail video begins by showing Jing Yuan with his troops, before showing in-battle footage that analyzes his normal attack, Skill, and Ultimate. Both the host and Fu Xuan explain how the attacks affect his in-battle performance, as well as how his Technique works when used ahead of a fight.

Here's the full video:

Some of the past videos and announcements looked closer at different elements of the character. For example, one MiHoYo Anime presentation was an animated short starring him, Jingliu, and Yanqing. "Heaven and Earth as a Chessboard" also featured him with his apprentice Yanqing as they played chess. The match is interrupted by some Mara-afflicted soldiers, forcing them to pause the game and fight back.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and PS4 and PS5 versions are in development. The Jing Yuan banner will be available until June 6, 2023.

Hololive Production Releases New Supporter Guidelines for Fans

VTuber agency Hololive Production released a new set of supporter guidelines intended to establish a "common language" for its fans. The guidelines cite an increase in communication "across borders, genders, and generations" leading to "natural" friction between thoughts and values. Hololive Production and its parent company Cover previously took steps to protect their streamers from defamation, including cooperating with fellow VTuber agency Nijisanji.

The supporter guidelines for Hololive fans have three sections, titled "Support them," "Watch Over Them," and "Respect them." The first section asks supporters to encourage streamers through difficulties and failures and to congratulate them when they succeed. The second asks fans to appreciate the difficulty of trying new activities or directions, and to support them through their ventures. Finally, the third section implores supporters to accept and respect differences of opinion between them, streamers, and other members of the community.


Earlier in May 2023, Hololive Talents Murasaki Shion and Minato Aqua, as well as Sakura Miko, announced they would go on hiatus due to contracting COVID-19. Hoshimachi Suisei also announced she's taking a break from streaming in order to focus on music.

In more positive news, Cover reported a 50% increase in revenue in a recent financial report. The Hololive-themed fighting game Idol Showdown also appeared on Steam, where it will soon be joined by the survivors-like Holocure.

Splatoon 3 S-BLAST Details

Nintendo revealed more information about the new Splatoon 3 weapon – the S-BLAST '92. Revealed as part of the Sizzle Season anouncement, the new weapon is a Blaster based on the Super Scope peripheral released for the SNES.

This new Splatoon 3 weapon has been confirmed to have two different firing modes. On the ground, the S-BLAST '92 has a long-range shot with a small blast. If you jump, however, the shot will be much shorter, but have a much larger blast. The video released on the official Splatoon account also confirmed that the weapon's kit will also include the Sprinkler sub-weapon and the Reefslider special.

The S-BLAST '92 is notable for taking its design from the Super Scope, originally released for the SNES. As the Splatoon 3 weapon's name suggests, it released in 1992 in North America and Europe. It was supported by games such as Yoshi's Safari and Battle Clash. The Super Scope was most recently seen in the Super Smash Bros series as a random item drop.

It's not the first time Splatoon has used a real-world light gun peripheral as a basis for a weapon either. Past Splatoon games have featured the N-ZAP weapons, which were based on the NES Zapper, used for games such as Duck Hunt.

Splatoon 3 is out now for the Nintendo Switch. Sizzle Season kicks off on June 1, 2023.

     Zelda Tears Of The Kingdom Time Gap  The beginning of The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom sees you jump right into the story discovering secrets below Hyrule Castle. However, without a nice cutscene showing the events from the end of Breath of the Wild (BOTW) and the beginning of Tears of the Kingdom (TOTK), we are left wondering what the time gap is between the two games. For answers to this interestingly complicated question, you've come to the right place. How much time has passed between BOTW and TOTK? Our guess is that The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom takes place somewhere between three to five years after we defeated Calamity Ganon, which is the ending of BOTW. While it may be true (but we doubt it) that the very next story beat after defeating Calamity Ganon is Link and Zelda exploring the ruins under Hyrule Castle, the true beginning of TOTK is somewhere between three to five years. This extended period of time is due mainly because Link awakens on Great Sky ...
