Is Lord of the Rings Return to Moria Steam Deck compatible? You won't have to walk through the depths of Mordor to play Lord of the Rings Return to Moria on the go, however, the latest Middle Earth adventure won't be coming to the Steam platform. Getting the upcoming Lord of the Rings title to run will be a long-expected journey, as there are a lot of extra steps needed to get the game running on the precious PC gaming handheld.
The Lord of the Rings Return to Moria system requirements only ask for 20GB of your handheld's install space, before you can return to Middle Earth and reclaim the land of Moria in the name of the dwarves. While that's not as demanding as most PC games, picking up the best microSD card for Steam Deck will help make sure you have plenty of storage space, especially if you have the 64GB model of the PC gaming handheld.

80 Days, Heaven's Vault and the Sorcery! games were all created by Inkle using their own scripting language, called Ink. It's a powerful tool for creating game narrative using simple markup rather than code, and it's open source so it can be used by other developers.
One drawback thus far has been that there was no native integration with the Unreal engine. That has now changed thanks to a new open source plug-in created by The Chinese Room.

We've seen how manga about bands go before. Typically, the first volume will focus on the group's foundation. It might be more of an ensemble situation, where everyone gets their moment, or one where a specific character stands out. While volume 1 of Yen Press' Bocchi the Rock manga does include introductions to fellow members like Nijika Ichiji, Ryo Yamada, and Ikuyo Kita, Hitori "Bocchi" Gotoh is the star, and you never forget it as you go through the yonkoma collection.
Of course, there are many reasons why it feels like the first volume is all about understanding and growing to appreciate Hitori. We're introduced to her when she's a middle schooler and sees music as a way to get close to people and connect, even if they are introverted and dealing with anxiety. We watch as she practices with her father's guitar and gradually becomes an actually admirable guitarist. So much so that she posts covers under the name Guitar Hero online and has a sizable fanbase.
However, she has issues connecting. Early panels show her loading herself up with merchandise and carrying her guitar, hoping it will inspire other people to approach her since she's too shy to do so herself. Except in some cases, it inspires an opposite situation and puts people off. So much so that when the situation she wanted to happen — someone approaching her because she was carrying a guitar and asking her to be in their band — she's speechless. Her own anxiety gets to her, even though Nijika Ichiji is perfectly friendly. Fortunately, because Nijika is the kind of person she is, she basically takes Hitori's silence as a "yes," which in turn gives her the chance to make her dream come true.
Once Hitori Gotoh meets Nijika and Ryo, things essentially cascade. However, even when Nijika and Ryo Yamada are in the picture and leading things along, "Bocchi" essentially captures all the attention in the Bocchi the Rock manga. Even though she's getting a chance to play for the first time with them, for example, her hiding in the "burnables" trash and calling it her home makes you focus on her reactions, her identifiable anxieties, and responses. When she performs with Kessoku Band for the first time, it is from inside a Ripe, Juicy Mangoes box, which is distracting.
It also helps that, even in the first volume of the Bocchi the Rock manga, we see Hitori Gotoh make progress when it comes to dealing with people and being in public. It's because of her that Ikuyo Kita is brought into the band. Ikuyo ends up approaching her in sort of the same way Nijika did and for the reasons Bocchi always wanted in the introduction. She saw her playing and approached her. She ends up being drafted into helping Ikuyo learn guitar, even, and brings her back into Kessoku after Ikuyo lied and ran away. By the end, we're even seeing her busking, managing to sell tickets, and performing, something that might have seemed unlikely for her at the beginning of the volume.
Throughout the initial installment of Bocchi the Rock, we're being encouraged to root for Hitori Gotoh. We see her dream. We watch her work toward it. We see her get the chance she dreamed of, then gradually grow closer to people who can help her become part of a band and connect in the way she always wanted. Each 4-koma panel shows her growth and getting outside of her comfort zone, sometimes with humorous results, and it almost made me feel like I was supporting her as I read along.
Volume 1 of Bocchi the Rock is available via Yen Press, and volume 2 comes out on January 23, 2024. The anime is streaming on Crunchyroll.

FFXIV patch 6.51 has a lot in store from what we've seen already, like a new Variant Dungeon and the Fall Guys Collaboration, but the London Fanfest revealed something more: A new questline crossover with FFXVI. No one could see it coming, but soon, FFXIV crosses over with FFXVI. An FFXIV and FFXVI crossover questline comes to 6.51 This, as we all know and recognized by the keynote, is a monumentally difficult task, as these two games' head developers do not agree eye to eye and couldn't possibly be the same person. Truly, this is a shocking revelation no one could have seen coming. Naoki Yoshida explained at the keynote this collaboration is intended as an introduction to FFXVI. It is meant for those who have not played it yet and may not own the console. Therefore, the collaboration will not be spoiler heavy for XVI and instead seek to introduce it to the XIV audience. The questline will be called 'The Path Infernal'. ...
