As the Cities Skylines 2 release date grows near, we've gotten a deeper look at road tools and management, as well as maintenance and block building.

     How to hatch the Minecraft Sniffer

How do you hatch a Minecraft Sniffer? This adorable, gentle giant only went ahead and stole our hearts with an overwhelming victory in the 2022 Minecraft Live mob vote. Over 50% of us (myself included) voted for this ancient mob to make its long-overdue return from extinction, with Mojang Studios bringing it back to life for the Minecraft 1.20 update. No doubt, part of the reason the sniffer won by a landslide is the new plant mechanics it enables.

While we still don't know much about the Minecraft Sniffer, and the new mob is in very early development, a recent leak shows that this new Minecraft mobs is bigger than you might have expected but still just as cute. Of course, some Minecraft seeds might be better for you to find these elusive creatures than others, so while we hunt down the best one, here is everything we know about the Sniffer.

     Best Honkai Star Rail Trailblazer build

What is the best Honkai Star Rail Trailblazer build? As the player's avatar in Honkai Star Rail, the Trailblazer takes the role of the protagonist in this mysterious sci-fi adventure. They are also the first character players have access to and can start working on their relics, attributes, and so on. Because of that, to help you to prepare the strongest physical version of the main character you can, we prepared this guide with the best Trailblazer build.

Although main characters in games such as Honkai: Star Rail aren't usually super strong, the Trailblazer is a good unit. They are not considered an option in the best Honkai Star Rail team comps nor do they have a high position in the Honkai Star Rail tier list, but they are a simple and zero-cost character to build, making a good option for free-to-player players that just want to enjoy the game's content. Now, if you want to expand your pool of character, don't forget to use all the Honkai Star Rail codes to get some Stellar Jades and pull for better units.

Starfield looks spectacular. From its crisp, colorful world design to its many missions, customization options, and opportunities for player-driven adventure, Bethesda - from what I can tell - has summited a new peak in RPG game design. I try to resist effusion, or acting too deferential towards videogame makers, but with the Starfield release date now on the horizon, this is truly one of those cases where I don't know how they do it - even with hundreds of developers, presumably a lot of money, and many, many years of intense labor, the creation of something like Starfield seems to me almost magical. I don't think it's Starfield's fault, but when I watch and read about Bethesda's new opus, I feel a profound, almost disappointing lethargy.

     Diablo 4 salvage or sell explained

Should I savage or sell in Diablo 4? This in-game mechanic has lots of useful benefits - not least clearing out your inventory after a long and tiring day ridding Sanctuary of evil. During our own time in Sanctuary, the blacksmith has probably been our most visited townsperson, and we're well acquainted with their salvage service, so here we detail everything it offers.

The blacksmith isn't just limited to salvage, as they can upgrade your favorite weapons as well. However, the salvage service they offer is by far the most useful in the Diablo 4 early game and is necessary to farm some of the materials needed for upgrades. If you only plan on running one of the Diablo 4 classes or best Diablo 4 builds, you can also salvage items you pick up that your class can't use, and get some purpose from them. Perhaps the best use for salvage though is to obtain new wardrobe items, allowing you to wear one piece of armor or jewelry while displaying the look of another. Here's everything you need to know about Diablo 4 salvage.

     Best Honkai Star Rail Serval build

What is the best Honkai Star Rail Serval build? This four-star character is the reward character if you pre-registered the game before release, but if you didn't, you can also win her over by using Warps - Honkai Star Rail's gacha system. Serval is a Lightning/Erudition type who does some shockingly absurd AoE damage, and her damage-over-time skills make her more reliable than others. That said, she struggles when enemy numbers skyrocket or against one particularly adamant opponent.

Your main goal in creating the best Honkai Star Rail Serval build is to make this Honkai Star Rail character a multi-targeting DPS. Even if you're fighting tons of enemies at once in the free PC game, her damage output can whittle them down to more manageable levels, and her shock status ailment will chip away at any foes still lingering around. While she may not be the highest-ranking character on our Honkai Star Rail tier list, there are ways to get around her shortcomings, and this build aims to do just that.

Whether it's due to a buff, kit change, or item change, these are safe picks if you're looking to climb the solo queue ranks in the free PC game.

Will you lose your Diablo 4 character in Season 1? With so many new players either returning to Diablo after a long hiatus or delving into the series for the first time, you may be confused by the concept of seasons and why you need to start a new character. As such, there is widespread misinformation that's causing a massive misunderstanding about this concept.

These two types of Realms are how Diablo 4 seasons work. When the new season starts, players will need to create a new character from one of the five Diablo 4 classes and work to make the best builds in the game, grinding to get a chance to receive the seasonal rewards. All seasons in the RPG game have themes and exclusive items, so you may wonder what happens when Diablo 4 shifts to season two and beyond.

From the haunted forests of Scosglen to the whispering winter winds of the Fractured Peaks, choosing the best Diablo 4 builds is a must for avid fans of Blizzard's RPG.

On the prowl for a DBD killers tier list? Six years in, the Dead by Daylight character roster is bigger than ever, boasting a massive 32 killers at the time of writing, and a further 37 survivors.

While there's certainly something thrilling fighting for your life in survival games (there must be a reason we all wonder how we'd do in a zombie apocalypse, right?), nothing gets the heart racing like shirking the lawful-good responsibilities of real life and taking on the role of a blood-thirsty killer.

While the bug-squishing autoshooter is itself still in the larva stage, Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor already looks like a worthwhile Vampire Survivors-like. It apparently helps to crib the mining, mineral hoarding, and maladroit approach to industrial safety that makes source material Deep Rock Galactic one of the best FPS games going.

Deep Rock Galactic: Survivor is in the works at Funday Games, not original DRG devs and fellow Danish outfit Ghost Ship Games. But it does fall under the latter's new publishing arm, Ghost Ship Publishing, and can trace its origins back to a casual meeting between Funday co-founder Anders Leicht Rohde and Ghost Ship CEO Søren Lundgaard – and beyond.

Still, I got to sample a bit of roaming about in a tank, one brief stop at a town, an opening of one (1) chest, and some fighting. It seemed okay, I guess?

Disgaea 7 Preview

Disgaea 7: Vows of the Virtueless seems to promise to be a more challenging, concentrated effort in comparison to Disgaea 6. While it holds all of the hallmarks of previous Disgaea games concerning its easily distinguishable character design, unique localization, and a wide breadth of classes, I felt it brings a new level of complexity to the fold after getting a chance to preview the game.

Players can now use the Jumbificiation system, which makes a character of their choice (and it can be any character on the field) into a giant. The model will be so large that the character will stand at the edge of the map, ready to pummel any foes on the battlefield or any opposing Jumbified character. This new mechanic is exciting as you can literally level the playing field with a single punch, though sometimes at the expense of your own units. It also creates a higher level of tension when you have to use the Jumbification mechanic against bosses that are also Jumbified. It becomes a test of who can knock each other out first while also micromanaging your normal units on the battlefield.

In general, this is an interesting gimmick mechanic for the Disgaea series. Jumbification can be done through killing enemies, powering up your meter to turn the tide of battle if it seems to be going awry. But players can still do things like throw units around the map and chain together attacks like they could in previous Disgaea games. From what I played, everything seems to remain intact, with the experience far more grueling and punishing than Disgaea 6. This feels more layered by comparison, and it seems to expect players to experiment with different character combinations to see what works against swaths of enemies on flat or elevated tiles.

[caption id="attachment_969096" align="aligncenter" width="1200"]Disgaea 7 Preview Image via Nippon Ichi Software[/caption]

Hell Mode is another mechanic players will utilize to deal massive amounts of damage to enemies. Players need to kill opponents to fill up their Hell Gauge, which allows for specific characters to enter Hell Mode. In this case, during the preview I was able to test Hell Mode with dual protagonist Fuji. His sword was able to cleanly slice through enemies, obliterating anyone standing in my way. It made clearing the boss during a particular stage extremely easy, and ended the battle quickly.

In terms of visual presentation, Disgaea 7 is still as colorful as its counterparts, with its localization still vibrant and fun. I had the opportunity to sample a bit of the story, which was just as nonsensical as previous installments. It was bursting with personality, and the overly serious Fuji was a great contrast alongside the excitable Pirilika, and the so-called ladies man Yeyasu. The voice acting was spectacular, and character illustrations gorgeous. However, it's still a bit hard to get used to the 3D models in Disgaea 7, mostly because they still aren't quite as detailed as previous installments. This goes for the stages I fought in as well.

[caption id="attachment_969095" align="aligncenter" width="1200"]Disgaea 7 Preview Image via Nippon Ichi Software[/caption]

Overall, Disgaea 7 is shaping up to possibly be a great entry in the series. The stages I played required me to use my brain instead of just powering through it, and the Jumbification mechanic adds a bit of extra texture to combat. I'm excited to see where Disgaea 7 will go, and how I'll be able to utilize these new features to min-max my leveling and cut my teeth on the challenges this game will have to offer.

Disgaea 7 will release on October 3, 2023 in North America, October 6, 2023 in Europe, and October 13, 2023 in Australia. It will be available for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Switch, and PC.

Silent Hope Day 1 Edition and Rune Factory Ties Revealed

Following the June 2023 Nintendo Direct reveal of Silent Hope, also known as Frederica in Japan, its ties to Rune Factory and Day 1 collector's edition were revealed. It turns out the game is a spin-off set in the same world. The official confirmation even called people's attention to Woolies appearing in both games. As for the limited edition, it will be sold at XSEED Games Store and other stores.

In the first trailer, people can see some of the Rune Factory elements. For example, since each hero also has a job tied to actions from that series, you can see those behaviors there. There's a farm with crops like turnips, pineapples, and tomatoes. The ranching section featured cows and chickens that resembled ones from the Story of Seasons series. There are also crafting elements. The Woolies appear in the dungeon portion.

Here's the trailer, as a reminder.

As for the Silent Hope Day 1 collector's edition, it will cost $49.99. That's $10 more than a standard copy. In addition to a physical copy of the Switch game, it also gives people an art book and soundtrack CD.

Here's how that looks

How Does the Honkai: Star Rail Planar Fissure Simulated Universe Event Work for Planar Ornaments

There's another new Honkai: Star Rail event involving the Simulated Universe and the Planar Ornaments you can earn there. It's one that's a little less involved than others. Rather, we basically go about our business in the mode, then gather rewards. However, HoYoVerse went over some things to know about the Honkai: Star Rail Planar Fissure event.

To start, you need to already have access to Simulated Universe in Honkai: Star Rail. This starts after you go through the tutorial Doomsday Beast boss fight at Herta Space Station. Doing that will unlock the Adventure Mission "Simulated Universe (Part 1)." You'll then need to complete all associated missions with that questline, which also includes "Simulated Universe: Second Closed Beta." Once you unlock complete access to this mode, you need to unlock World 3. If you have, then you can start getting the additional Planar Ornament rewards in Honkai: Star Rail during the Planar Fissure event.

There's nothing special you need to do from there. When you go through Simulated Universe Worlds 3 or higher, you'll be able to get double the rewards after beating bosses for a limited number of times. As a reminder, Planar Ornament sets involve two pieces of equipment. These are the Planar Sphere and Link Rope. Like Relics, they boost stats and equipping two from the same set gives you a bonus.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for the PC and mobile devices, and the Planar Fissure Simulated Universe event runs until June 28, 2023. The game will also come to the PS5 later in 2023.

Tomorrow, people can tune in to watch Sega's 2023 Sonic Central to learn more about upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog game and event news.

The array of video game news presentations are still coming. Sega announced it will hold a Sonic Central on June 23, 2023. This is in honor of Sonic the Hedgehog's birthday, as the original Sonic the Hedgehog game appeared on the Genesis on June 23, 1991. There's no official length announced for this showcase, which will start at 8am PT/11am ET/5pm CET. However, Sega did tease that it could go over new Sonic the Hedgehog projects, which would include games.

There will be two ways to watch Sega's Sonic Central 2023 showcase. One is to go to the official Twitch account for the series, and the other is via YouTube. There's no placeholder page live yet on YouTube, however.

There are no exact details about what sorts of Sonic the Hedgehog game news or announcement could come out of this presentation. The company only mentioned "projects, partnerships, and events." This could mean noting which conventions Sega could show up at over 2023. There could also be news about comics and cartoons tied to the series. The company also sometimes uses these showcases to look at new merchandise.

We do know about one new game on the way, however. Sonic Superstars is coming. This will be a more traditional sort of title. However, it will also include cooperative multiplayer for up to four people.

The Sonic Central 2023 stream will air at 8am PT/11am ET/5pm CET on June 23, 2023.
