     Diablo 4 elixirs and potions explained

What are all the Diablo 4 elixirs? While you will always have a trusty healing brew available, topping off your health as you batter yet another legion of demons terrorizing the world of Sanctuary, there are times when you'll need an extra pick-me-up. This is where the powerful one-time effects of elixirs come in, and they can make all the difference.

All the Diablo 4 elixirs will boost one or more stats, some of which can bolster the potency of the best Diablo 4 classes. They all need specific herbs, which you can find in grass piles. So if you want to give your best Diablo 4 builds that little extra boost, it's time to brush up on how you can make all these concoctions at the Alchemist and what all the elixirs in the RPG game do.

     Minecraft players really want their dirt cube back

Players are mourning the loss of the Minecraft grass block as the sandbox game's launcher icon, just as the Minecraft 1.20 release date has arrived. As it turns out, tens of thousands of players (at least over the last day) have made it known that they prefer the simple elegance of the Minecraft grass block over the face of a Creeper for the game's PC launcher, and I couldn't agree more.

     What we need to see from Destiny 2 before The Final Shape

I'm almost glad Lightfall was a bit rubbish. After the 30th Anniversary Pack and The Witch Queen, I was getting used to Destiny 2 being really good, and it was a strange, unsettling feeling. Destiny's form has always ebbed and flowed, and the highs give shape to the lows; terrific as The Taken King and Forsaken were, they shone more brightly because Destiny 1 and 2 were so disappointing at launch. Perhaps Bungie is going very meta with the message of Destiny's Light and Darkness Saga - you need both for either to have meaning.

Cats, cooking, seaside towns, pretty landscapes, magical girls - Wholesome Direct has it all. This year we from the RPS Indiescovery Podcast watched the show and have plucked out a handful of games that we're looking forward to the most, which was pretty difficult. There were a lot of great games this year.

Cassette Beasts' Companions Are What I Always Wanted from Pokemon Rivals

I always wanted a Pokemon game where the rivals get more attention and are more involved. Pokemon Black and White and Pokemon Scarlet and Violet's companions both come close! But I really wanted a sense of greater connection. Probably the best thing about Bytten Studio's Cassette Beasts is how its companion system gives us that with characters. We have these moments where the people are always alongside us, get their own questline moments, and matter. There are even romance options in Cassette Beasts, which basically does everything I'd hope from a Pokemon-like monster collecting game.

In case you're unfamiliar with it, Cassette Beasts involves characters from different parallel worlds and places in time all brought to New Wirral. Everyone's getting by and finding new goals for themselves. Players are found by Kayleigh, who happens to be both a possible companion and romance option in Cassette Beasts. From there, it gets pretty open-ended. There is a story involving creatures called Archangels and getting home, but there are also subplots that can involve characters like Eugene. But even ones not connected to additional, long-running stories can appear, fight alongside you, and become your friend. Like Barkley. Barkley is a good boy.

[caption id="attachment_966863" align="alignnone" width="1200"]Cassette Beasts' Companions Are What I Always Wanted from Pokemon Rivals Screenshot by Siliconera[/caption]

What's great about this system first and foremost is that the introductions tend to be handled well. Kayleigh and Eugene are both introduced as part of the story. You get to know them fairly well over the course of that questline. Others come up as you explore the world and find them at different places. You benefit in not only getting a companion in these Cassette Beasts characters, but someone genuinely useful. Each one fights alongside you in battle and can fuse with you to become a more powerful creature.

The interactions end up feeling natural, and never really forced. You can get involved with character quests for them. These reveal more about their backgrounds, motivations, and personalities. When you stop at campfires to rests, you'll engage in conversations. Some of these will be unique. For example, Barkley might get some treats or pets, while you'll talk about specific topics with the human allies. Bonds form as you fight alongside each other and go through quests, so it isn't like there are forced "event" scenes that come across as unnatural. You're spending days and weeks exploring New Wirral. It makes sense.

[caption id="attachment_966864" align="alignnone" width="1200"]Cassette Beasts' Companions Are What I Always Wanted from Pokemon Rivals Screenshot by Siliconera[/caption]

The way Cassette Beasts handles romance between the companion characters is also pretty tactful. You aren't automatically forced into a relationship just because you did spend all that time together. After the companion quest is done and you max out all five of their hearts, a conversation comes up. You have the option to pursue something more or not. And if you do, you get an extra cutscene and new dialogue. It feels tactful, but not overbearing or like it changes the focus of the adventure.

It all just works so well. These people we are spending time with become a part of our virtual lives. Bytten Studios seems to get how Cassette Beasts characters could start meaning something to us, and gives us this relationship system with companions that feels fulfilling without changing the focus or getting overbearing. It's quite a welcome bonus.

Cassette Beasts is available for the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

A Business Proposal Manhwa Is a Typical Mistaken Identity Romance

Mistaken identity is a common theme in romance manga and manwha, and A Business Proposal is Yen Press' latest series to dabble in the concept. However, it almost feels like an overload of "who's who" early on. While it is a lot, it is still a fun read and seems like there's a potential for things to calm down now that the concept's completely settled.

Hari Shin isn't in the best place as A Business Proposal's first volume begins, as the manhwa's heroine dealing with two heavy hits. Someone she's been in love with for a long time revealed he has a girlfriend, and decided the best way to let her know was to invite her to lunch to — surprise — meet her. Her parents' restaurant was hit hard by an avian flu incident, so she's helping to support them. However, her friend Yeongsun Jin offers a solution to help with one of those problems. Her family wants her to get married and arranged a blind-date and meeting with Taemu Kang, a similarly rich man whose grandfather who wants him to get married. Yeongsun will pay Hari to go in her place and make a terrible impression to screw things up enough that this won't be an issue.

Naturally, it doesn't go that way.

Hari shows up in makeup, a wig, and out-of-character clothing. She behaves poorly and insists she's the most outlandish kind of woman and into the sorts of activities and relationships a corporate, rich, and stereotypically elitist person wouldn't be into. The thing is Taemu, in an effort to get things over with, decided he'd just marry the her before they met to be done with the waste of time.

What follows ends up being a comedy of errors in many ways. Hari will behave even more poorly and panic. Taemu will be amused by the situation and her antics and continue to press the idea of them getting married. Yeongsun will similarly panic and get amusingly frustrated, because now her family thinks that a marriage is a possibility.

There are times when it's almost overkill as a result. This is because there isn't just one case of mistaken identity between Hari and Taemu. Over the course of this first volume, there are two additional incidents involving major characters. Some of the situations I did actually appreciate. For example, Yeongsun and Taemu's assistant Sunghoon Cha find themselves in this sort of situation. The chemistry between the two of them is genuinely delightful, and offers a more peaceful contrast to the drama surrounding Hari and Taemu. But the fact that all three of these do happen in the first 14 chapters of the A Business Proposal manhwa can feel like a lot. Especially if you read it all in one sitting.

All this said, I'm quite interested to see where things go in the second volume of the A Business Proposal manhwa. It feels like Haehwa and Narak spent the bulk of the first first chapters getting over all of the expected mistaken identity parts of the story, so now the second part can focus on the budding relationship between Hari and Taemu. It also leaves things off in such a way that Yeongsuh and Sunghoon's storyline could become just as compelling. It almost feels like it had to get typical elements from this kind of theme so it could start really opening up. Especially since there are still secrets to deal with and misconceptions to unravel.

A Business Proposal volume 1 is available via Yen Press, and volume 2 of the manhwa will be out on August 22, 2023.

     Terraria's creator

Terraria is often compared to Minecraft, and it's clear to see why. The pair stand side-by-side among the best sandbox games, and their core concepts of digging out resources and building something of your own are quite similar. However, the two actually take rather different approaches to progression - in fact, the creator of Terraria says his inspiration to create it came largely from a desire to have a similar game with more explicit goals.

     Best Diablo 4 Barbarian build

What is the best Diablo 4 Barbarian build? You won't be able to go far without hearing about the Whirlwind Barbarian. It's the best Diablo 4 Barbarian build right now, and there's little reason to believe it'll be trumped by another anytime soon. In fact, despite getting a timely nerf just a few days into early access, it still ended up being the setup to carry the first player to level 100 in Hardcore.

While that player did lose their character a few dozen hours later, it wasn't through any fault of this exceptional Barbarian build. It's still the best of the best, but even it can't save you from the woes of a shoddy internet connection. So if spinning like a Beyblade isn't for you, consider rerolling with the best Diablo 4 Necromancer build, Sorcerer build, Druid build, or Rogue build instead.

     We need one Lord of the Rings game to rule them all

In the land of Mordor where the shadows lie, that is where I wish I could be. I would still suffer less there than I have been while playing some of the recent games inspired by Lord of the Rings, like Gollum. As a devoted fan of Tolkien's universe and (almost) everything to come from it, I am beside myself with frustration at how underwhelmed I've been by recent LotR games. There is perhaps no better set of fantasy tales to choose from than Tolkien's for a rich story game, yet so few have taken full advantage of the source material. From LEGO games to technical messes, the history of Lord of the Rings' relationship with videogames is turbulent, to say the least.
