Skyrim mods have officially peaked. You can now pet, play fetch with, and adopt a number of dogs in the Bethesda RPG game. No, I'm not joking, this new Skyrim mod adds a slew of features relating to a Dragonborn's best friend, making Skyrim the perfect version of itself after a measly 12 years of trying. These features better be in the next game when the Elder Scrolls 6 release date finally comes around.

A WoW Classic bug has turned one of the most instinctive habits for basically every player of the MMORPG into a potentially fatal mistake. World of Warcraft players on the WoW Classic PTR are running into sudden disconnects while jumping during combat, and Blizzard confirms that being hit with crowd control effects while in midair is the cause, leading it to advise players to "avoid jumping in combat" - something that's easier said than done.

New League of Legends PBE patch notes for the 13.14 update are here, and it's looking like Riot is aiming to put a stop to the strength of certain powerful ganking tools in its MOBA. With key nerfs to both the Ghost Summoner spell and the effectiveness of League of Legends jungle buffs at low levels, it'll be harder to catch people out of position in lane. There's also buffs to Aatrox and Volibear, while several items get tweaked.

At Anime Expo 2023, Good Smile Company's Hololive figures included Gawr Gura and Laplus Darkness figma and a Ninomae Ina'nis Nendoroid. All three figures appear to be fairly far along in development.

First, here's the Ninomae Ina'nis Nendoroid. She's shown with her tentacles behind her. However, no additional accessories appear with her.
Next, here's the Laplus Darkness figma. Her unnamed crow companion is perched on her head as an accessory. It also shows the sleeves of the figure will remain long and cover her hands.
Finally, here's the Gawr Gura figma. It shows that her trident will be among the figure's accessories.

Good Smile Company's Anime Expo 2023 reveals included updates on Capcom merchandise. We got to see the Darkstalkers Pop Up Parade Morrigan and Lilith figures, as well as the Street Fighter Chun-Li scale figure. There are no release windows for any of them. However, the Chun-Li figure seems furthest along in development.
This is because the Chun-Li Street Fighter figure appeared as a painted prototype. It features her sitting on the edge of a broken piece of material. We don't know what scale it will be yet. However, this is the first time we've seen a painted version of it, as the unpainted prototype appeared back in February 2023.
Meanwhile, both the Darkstalkers Pop Up Parade Morrigan and Lilith figures appeared as unpainted prototypes. Both characters appear to be wearing their standard costumes from the fighting game series.
There's no release window yet for the Street Fighter Chun-Li figure or Darkstalkers Morrigan and Lilith Pop Up Parade figures. Street Fighter 6 is available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC. Darkstalkers games can be found in Capcom Fighting Collection on the PS4, Switch, Xbox One, and PC.

I suspected I'd ike Jack Jeanne would be a game I'd enjoy when I first learned about it. The art Sui Ishida shared looked gorgeous, and I'm a sucker for rhythm games of any sort. I followed it off and on, especially since there were hints of a worldwide release, but tried not to get too invested. After so many years when otome games wouldn't get localized, I suppose I always have this lingering fear. After going through it two times now, however, I can't help but feel like Jack Jeanne is my favorite otome game on the Switch.
Kisa Tachibana loves performing, and has since doing so as a child while playing with her brother Tsuki and childhood friend Soshiro. Her brother was so talented, he even made it into the exclusive Univeil Drama School. While she always wanted to do the same, especially after he disappeared after graduating, it wasn't an option. It's a school for men only, where male students play both the male Jack and female Jeanne parts. Kisa isn't even planning to go to high school and start working to help support her father.
The structure of Jack Jeanne is such that there are the visual novel elements many Switch otome games are known for, complete for choices, but with stat-building and rhythm game components interspersed. It's also executed somewhat like an anime series, as you could consider preparing for different shows "arcs" of the story. Kisa finds herself in the Quartz class at the school, with each class focusing on elements. For example, Amber is an "elite" group that already ends up handling major performances. Rhodonite focuses on performers who take Jeanne roles and excel at singing.
The rhythm elements are split into two sorts of songs. There are dance numbers and singing performances. As the voice acting in general for Jack Jeanne, the music is exquisite and perfectly fits the "theme" for each play. The dance numbers are more traditional, as you tap one of four button inputs when indicators hit the bottom. (Custom key binding is supported, and the icons at the bottom of the note chart change when you do.) These also involve the 3D models of the characters in costumes dancing in the background. The songs are more like Groove Coaster, with notes following along a line and a player moving back or forth to follow it in time. While yes, endings are tied to performance, the easiest difficulty level is quite rudimentary. So someone unfamiliar with rhythm games could still feasibly get the scores necessary for the best ending. Conversely, the more challenging options do pick things up quite a bit, and the most challenging "Jack Jeanne" difficulty unlocks in the Gallery to play at any time after clearing that part of the story.
The fact that the general, overall story is so strong doesn't mean the romantic moments end up overshadowed either. Jack Jeanne's love interests are all well-written and well-rounded individuals. Even two of the routes that might feel like they lean into tropes, like the childhood friend or the man who "hates" women, end up doing something fresh and surprising with the concept. I loved all of these people. The fact that this takes place over a school year means there's plenty of support for this being a meaningful relationship between Kisa and the person you choose. Plus, their backstories and writing are so good that all of them feel like people you can connect with.
Jack Jeanne is an absolute delight. It's one of my favorite games of 2023. I'd easily consider it my favorite Switch otome game, in the same way Tokimeki Memorial Girl's Side 3rd Story stole my heart on the 3DS. It's so well-executed. Anyone who enjoys visual novels, even if they normally don't go for ones that are dating sims, should give it a chance.
Jack Jeanne is available for the Nintendo Switch.

Your Harpoon Gun is fine for your first few dives, but you'll soon realize it's not as versatile as you once thought.

How to catch Jellyfish in Dave the Diver Image by PC Invasion There are a few ways to catch a Jellyfish in Dave the Diver, but the most straightforward is simply shooting it. After a few well-placed hits, the Jellyfish will stop moving and go slightly darker to indicate the kill. At this point, you can just pick it up without taking damage. You can use whatever weapon you like. Early on, I recommend the Triple Axel, as it fires three pro...
