     BattleBit guns tier list – best weapons

What are the best BattleBit guns? With servers that can take up to 254 players, you're going to need a BattleBit tier list featuring the best weapons open on a second screen or device. Unless you're picking the right class and rolling out with the best gun, you're going to struggle to fight through the rabble and capture the nearly two-dozen maps available at launch. If you're tired of the annual Call of Duty releases and don't mind something that genuinely looks like a Roblox game, it's time to jump into one of Steam's biggest releases of the year with the means to be mean.

BattleBit remastered has flown to the top of the Steam charts in mid-2023 as a fresh, chaotic, and ridiculously large online shooter that's trying to pull off what big-budget releases have promised yet struggled to deliver for years. If the angled look doesn't put you off, consider looking into the best Roblox games of 2023. And if you're wondering if BattleBit is free, or what the BattleBit platforms are, we've got you covered.

Stand your ground, stay on your toes, and keep your head in the game. And if you can't quite cut it, we have plenty of Shinobi Life 2 codes for you to use instead, with Blox Fruits codes and King Legacy codes available if you're more of a pirate than a ninja.

     Diablo 4 gems won't take up your inventory space forever

One of the most annoying things in Diablo 4, and many other RPG games, is inventory management. I'm bad at it, you're bad at it, we're all bad at it. From bigger items such as gear pieces to smaller loot like materials we wish weren't in the general tab, maintaining a clean and organized inventory can feel impossible at times. Thankfully, Blizzard has just confirmed that a future update in Diablo 4's second season will move gems to the materials tab. That isn't all we've learned, though, as the developers sat down to discuss other upcoming changes.

Is BattleBit Remastered a free Steam game? You may be forgiven for wondering this because of the relatively low-polygon visuals and basic core gameplay. It's similar to many competitive shooters; only its low-fidelity visuals make it possible to have 254 individual players on the same map.

If that sounds enticing, you're a fan of low-poly Battlefield-style gameplay, and you want to know if BattleBit Remastered is free to play, you need only take one glance at the FPS game's Steam page.

At its core, Pet Capsules Simulator looks very similar to another Roblox game it almost shares a name with. For that one, check out Pet Simulator X codes.

Where are all Diablo 4 Altar of Lilith locations? Finding these statues dedicated to the Mother of Sanctuary will reward every character on your account with permanent stat boosts. These boosts can buff one of your core stats, increase how many Murmuring Obols you can carry, or even award Paragon Points. Finding an Altar of Lilith also rewards you with Renown for the zone it's in.

These boosts might seem minor, but the sheer number of Altars of Lilith on the map - about 30 in each of Diablo 4's five zones - means that you'll receive a huge power boost if you find them all. We've traversed absolutely every corner of the Diablo 4 map to bring you every Altar of Lilith location. You need to find them if you plan to create the best build for any of the Diablo 4 classes.

     Starfield download size is ten times bigger than Skyrim

Hey, you. You're finally awake. Let me tell you a tale of videogame storage wars. From colossal, snow-capped mountains to verdant woodland and bustling towns, Skyrim's 15 in-game square miles are crammed with quests, treasure, and places to explore. All that for a mere 12GB. A decade on from Skyrim's release, Starfield wants to pick up where it left off. Swapping woods and mountains for nebulae and asteroid belts, Bethesda's latest exploration-focused game clocks in at an enormous 125GB.

That's a pretty hefty increase. But it's not just Bethesda and Starfield culpable for ballooning storage requirements. The Star Wars Jedi Survivor system requirements, for example, stipulated a whopping 155GB spare space, a far cry from the now-modest Skyrim PC specs. It's a clear industry trend: triple-A games getting bigger all the time.

For a certain sort of Elder Scrolls player, it's the only way to travel through a fantasy open world - perma-crouched, bow stretched lazily across the lower third of the screen. And it's an appeal that creator Nate Purkeypile understands perfectly, having spent the larger portion of his career working on Bethesda's RPGs, from Fallout 3 and Skyrim all the way through to Fallout 76.

You know me, folks: I love management sims, and I love people in physical distress. Wasn't I only delighted, then, to play a bit of Galacticare, an upcoming hospital management sim in the same sticky vein as the hospitals Theme or Two Point. The twist? These hopsitals are in space! Like those managment games, your task is to build a hospital that runs as smooth as some kind of alien baby's bottom (the alien probably has tentacles), where you want to treat people and prevent them from dying as much as possible, but largely because death is bad for your profit margin more than any altruistic impulse. I mean you can be altruistic if you want, I suppose, but if you run out of money it's harder to build more weird bone-fixing machines.

The tone - though Galacticare has strange diseases like being eaten from the inside out by a singularity, and wacky treatments including a sort of laser disco machine - is actually much closer to kind of satire-ish hijinks of spacestation management game Startopia than I had expected, thanks in part to the extremely dry AI helper offering input, and the many alien species who'll come to you for treatment.

Persona 3 Reload social links

Persona 3 Reload will have fully-voiced Social Links, as well as new scenes to further explore the world and character dynamics. It will have the most voiced lines in the history of the Persona series thus far. It will also be easier to max out Social Links in a single playthrough this time around. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

The main story and Social Links will be the same as the original. There will also be some aspects of FES and P3P in Reload, though you won't be able to play The Answer or as FeMC. As well, there will be new scenes to dive deeper into the world and characters. For example, there will be scenes where the MC gets to interact more with the male party members. In the original P3, you couldn't have Social Links with the guys, so these scenes will help to explore their friendship.

As for the Social Links, Persona 3 was not designed for players to max them out in a single playthrough. It wasn't impossible, but it was very difficult. The development team expressed surprise that people managed it in the first place. This was due to the high Stat requirements you needed to start some of them, as well as needing to make the right choices in dialog. In Persona 3 Reload, it will feel closer to maxing out all the Social Links in Persona 5 Royal. It won't be easy, but it'll be possible if you spend enough time on it.

Persona 3 Reload will come out on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, and Windows PC via Steam some time in early 2024. The Japanese voice cast will be the same as the original. Meanwhile, there is a whole new English cast for Reload.

persona 5 avail

Shimamura's Avail line will release Persona 5 clothing like shirts starting on June 24, 2023. They will also be available from the online store. They are not on the website yet. So to get a closer look at them, you will have to wait until that date. However, a few were teased like a Morgana parka with hood.

Here's a teaser for the items.

In total, there are three items to purchase from the Avail Persona 5 clothing line. They are:

  • Face Towel: 1,200 JPY
  • Parka: 1,800 JPY
  • T-shirt: 1,800 JPY

There are multiple designs for the Persona 5 face towel and shirt. One of the towels shows the MC in his both his civilian and his Joker form. The other one shows the members of the Phantom Thieves using their level-up portraits. The idea of using these icons also appears on one of the T-shirts. The front of it has the Phantom Thieves logo on the front, and the back has the jagged red line and portraits you see after battle when you level up.

As for the parks, wearing it makes you look like Morgana. It comes with a hood that has cat ears and Morgana's face on it. There is also a tail on the back and a yellow kerchief-like design around the neck. It's unclear from the pictures if the tail is just a design or if it's a real one that will dangle from the back.

The Avail Persona 5 apparel line will become available starting on June 24, 2023. Persona 5 Tactica, the newest spin-off of Persona 5, is in development and will come out on November 17, 2023 for the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam.

Persona 5 Tactica reveal What Were the Best Summer Game Fest / Not-E3 Game Announcements?

Now that the Summer Game Fest and "not" E3 showcases are pretty much done, lets go over our favorite game announcements. So much came up, both during the June 8, 2023 presentation and the other developer and publisher presentations. So let's point out titles people might have missed and share what we can't wait to play.

After seeing all the Summer Game Fest, Xbox Games Showcase, and PlayStation Showcase games, I think the ones I liked best are Beastieball and Persona 5 Tactica. The former is because I loved games like Inazuma Eleven and Dodgeball Academia, and it's giving me similar sorts of vibes. As for Persona 5 Tactica, I was hesitant about another spin-off! But I love strategy games, so I'm willing to give it a chance. -- Jenni

The two games that stuck out to me were actually completely unexpected. I'm not a huge fan of Akira Toriyama's aesthetic style, but SAND LAND's ramshackle vehicles looked absolutely charming and I cant wait to start patching them together. Similarly, I'm not much for side scrollers but Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown won me over with it's visuals and the promise of Persian mythology. I better get some sandals ready, seems I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the desert. -- Elliot

Two standout titles for me during Summer Games Fest were Metaphor: ReFantazio and Star Wars Outlaws. Outlaws feels just like the open-world Star Wars game I've been hoping for, especially after the tragic late cancellation of 1313, though I am a bit cautiously optimistic for now. On the other hand, Metaphor is the JRPG I didn't know I wanted. Taking the classic Atlus turn-based systems from the Persona series and applying it to a gorgeous, unique fantasy world has me immensely excited. Plus, its UI might be the greatest of all time. -- Cody

Two games caught me by surprise this year. I'm not a massive Star Wars fan, yet Star Wars: Outlaws managed to win me over, while Jusant was a cute little treat. Apparently the key to getting my attention is adding a lil friend who rides on the protagonist's shoulder. However, the big game for me was Alan Wake 2. Control was my favourite game of 2019 and got me deeply invested in Remedy's bizarre shared universe. I have been ready for Alan Wake 2 from the moment the AWE DLC ended, and finally, here it is! It has weird deer-head cultist people! It's split between the real world and the dark world! It may sort of have Max Payne in it? It's all happening, and I'm excited for October now. Only thing missing is a lil friend riding on either Saga or Alan's shoulder. Can't have everything, I guess. -- Leigh

Persona 3 Reload Fatigue System

In an interview between 4Gamer and the main developers of Persona 3 Reload, Atlus revealed it will remove the Fatigue system from the game. This will help to make Persona 3 feel like a more modern Persona game. There will also be some QOL changes to mechanics like Tartarus exploration to improve the player experience. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

The original Persona 3 had a Condition system. Fighting or exploring Tartarus for too long could fatigue your characters. This lead to a chance of them getting sick the next day. Tired and sick characters had lower stats. It would also be easier for enemies to knock them down or inflict them with status effects. Conversely, if you rested up the night before a Tartarus day, you had a chance of being in Great condition. Characters would have higher stats, such as a higher Crit Rate.

Organizing your schedule to prevent your characters getting Sick, or to work around them, was part of Persona 3's time management system. However, this system does not mesh well with the series's current calendar system. Getting Sick was random. So it could stress out players who planned their schedule days in advance. Since the Fatigue system actively affected how much fun players had, Atlus chose to remove it for Persona 3 Reload.

There are some minor QOL changes in Tartarus as well. Because the development team wanted to preserve Persona 3's atmosphere while making it easier to play (like Persona 5), it struggled on how to make Tartarus exploration a better experience. For example, the feeling of emptiness while climbing up the shadowy corridors of Tartarus during the Dark Hour was something the dev team wanted to retain. Tartarus will still be randomly generated. But the team added things like party member conversations to keep it from becoming stale.

Persona 3 Reload will come out on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass, and Windows PC via Steam some time in early 2024.

Final Fantasy XIV Job Icon, Crafting, and Gathering Pins Will Return

Square Enix announced its e-Store in Japan will begin selling the Final Fantasy XIV job, crafting, and gathering icon pins again. These sorts of pins originally appeared prior to 2020. Disciples of War and Magic jobs, Disciples of the Hand, and Disciples of the Land are all represented. All of them will arrive in Japan on September 2, 2023. The North American storefront isn't stocking them yet, but often does put up listings for these sort of items within a week or so.

There are 24 different kinds of pins on the way. Each one costs 660円 (~4.70). Not every role appears. For example, there aren't pins for roles like the Blacksmith, Culinarian, Fisher, or Leatherworker. When it comes to jobs, the Astrologian, Bard, Blue Mage, Dancer, Dark Knight, Dragoon, Gunbreaker, Machinist, Monk, Ninja, Paladin, Reaper, Red Mage, Sage, Samurai, Scholar, Summoner, Warrior, and White Mage will appear. The Alchemist, Botanist, Miner, and Weaver icons will also be available.

First, here are all the Final Fantasy XIV job class icon pins coming up later this year.
[gallery columns="4" size="full" ids="968540,968541,968542,968543,968544,968545,968546,968547,968548,968549,968550,968551,968552,968553,968554,968555,968556,968557,968558,968559" link="file"]

And these are the two Disciples of the Land icon ones for the Botanist and Miner.

It isn't uncommon for merchandise tied to Final Fantasy XIV jobs to appear. Square Enix sold acrylic stands and icon magnets in the past.

Final Fantasy XIV is available for the PS4, PS5, and PC, and these new pins will arrive in Japan on September 2, 2023.

Like a Dragon Gaiden Agent Style

RGG Studio revealed more details about Kiryu's new Agent fighting style in Like a Dragon Gaiden. At the RGG Summit Summer 2023, Executive Producer Masayoshi Yokoyama detailed the fighting styles in the game. The first of these styles is Yakuza Style, which is Kiryu's typical style from other games in the series.

However, there is also a new style in Like a Dragon Gaiden. It's called Agent Style, and it is representative of Kiryu becoming an agent for a secret organization. It's inspired by spy movies, giving Kiryu gadgets to fight with against foes.

As seen in the Like a Dragon Gaiden Summer Game Fest trailer, Agent Style gives Kiryu a wire that he can use to grab enemies and objects from afar. He can command a fleet of drones that can be used for distraction and other forms of crowd control. There's also a glimpse of an exploding cigarette that Kiryu casually throws into a crowd of goons.

Yokoyama also confirmed that Like a Dragon Gaiden will mainly be taking place in Sotenbori, based on Osaka. Sotenbori previously appeared in Yakuza 0, Yakuza 2 and Yakuza 5.

The RGG Summit also featured the first look at a cutscene from Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth. The scene features Ichiban and Kiryu having a heart-to-heart about marriage.


The RGG Studio team announced that more details on both Like a Dragon Gaiden and Like a Dragon: Infinite Wealth will be revealed at another RGG Summit event in Fall 2023.

Like a Dragon Gaiden: The Man Who Erased His Name will release on November 9, 2023. It will release for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.

All Hololive English Vtubers Sing New Song Ahead of 1st Concert

Ahead of the first Hololive English Connect the World concert, all of the Vtubers who will appear performed on a new song. The track is called "Connect the World." When announced, it was also billed as the first "all-star" song for this branch. Here is the Hololive English song "Connect the World." Its performers include Amelia Watson, Calliope Mori, Ceres Fauna, Gawr Gura, Hakos Baelz, Irys, Nanashi Mumei, Ninomae Ina'nis, Ouro Kronii, and Kiara Takanashi. While this is an ensemble piece, every Vtuber does get their own "moment" with a solo to showcase their own singing abilities. (Members like Baelz, Calliope, and Irys especially are known for their singing and original performances.)


As an aside, even though this song only includes all Hololive English branch members, ones from other branches will be at this first concert. For example, three from Hololive Indonesia will appear as guests at the event. Ayunda Risu, Moona Hoshinova, and Pavolia Reine will show up too. The Japanese branch members Hoshimachi Suisei, Houshou Marine, and Tokino Sora will also show up.

The Hololive English first concert Connect the World will involve Myth, Project: Hope, and Council Vtubers performing at the Inglewood, California YouTube Theater on July 2, 2023.

Apex Genshin Impact Ayaka and Hu Tao Figures Arrive in 2024

Apex announced its Genshin Impact Ayaka and Hu Tao figures, with both due out in 2024. AmiAmi, which ships worldwide, is taking pre-orders for both of them. The Ayaka one is the more expensive of the two. It costs ¥23,700 (~$168.15) at the retailer. The Hu Tao one is ¥2,470 (~$17.52). Of the two, Hu Tao will appear first. It debuts in April 2024. Ayaka will show up in September 2024.

First, here's a closer look at the Hu Tao Genshin Impact figure. It features a chibi version of the character riding a ghost. The figure is attached to its base by a spring, for some degree of motion. It is about 10cm (~4in) tall.

Here's a closer look at the prototype.
[gallery columns="2" size="full" ids="968518,968519,968520,968521" link="file"]

The Ayaka Genshin Impact figure from Apex is far larger and more elaborate. It is a 1/7 scale one, which means it stands at 29cm (~12in). She's in the middle of the dance she does in-game. The stand features the Inazuman background and pool where she performed it, and she has a fan expended. AmiAmi also offers a clear file of her to go with it as a purchase bonus.

Here's how Ayaka and the clear file will look, based on the prototype photos.

Honkai Star Rail Everwinter City Museum Event Extended

HoYoverse announced measures it will take regarding the Honkai: Star Rail Everwinter City Museum Ledger of Curiosities event. It is currently broken. You can't get past the Prosperous Glory portion of the questline and event. As a result, everyone will get 120 Stellar Jade as an "apology" and the event will now end on August 6, 2023.

The Honkai: Star Rail museum event in Belobog on Jarilo-VI was supposed to "end" on June 26, 2023. After that date, people would be able to go back and reexperience the story and earn some rewards, but not the limited time ones. As part of the event, you manage areas of the museum to increase their stats and attractiveness and also find missing attractions for it during quests. There are different phases, triggered by leveling up areas and their elements, recruiting staff and placing them, and filling up exhibits.

Currently, people end up getting "stuck" when they get to Prosperous Glory. This means they can't finish restoring the museum or getting the standard or limited time rewards. HoYoVerse's announcement said it will be fixed after the 1.2 patch maintenance on July 19, 2023. The 120 Stellar Jade will be sent out and able to be claimed until August 17, 2023.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for PCs and mobile devices, and a PS5 version will arrive later in 2023.
