Mortal Kombat 1, NetherRealm's newest entry in its three-decades-old fighting game series, continues its predecessors' tradition of pulling gut-yanking, brain-pounding final moves, or Fatalities, to the delight of its gore connoisseur fans.

     GTA 6 map should be smaller and denser, former Rockstar dev says

GTA 6 might be the most anticipated game in the world right now. After the tectonic success of Grand Theft Auto 5 and GTA Online - as well as Red Dead Redemption 2 - we're all incredibly eager to see what Rockstar does next, as it potentially heads back to Vice City for its next sandbox crime caper. Speaking exclusively to PCGamesN, one former Rockstar developer whose credits include the original Red Dead Redemption and both GTA Liberty City Stories and Vice City Stories, hopes that GTA 6 will feature a "smaller but more densely packed location" than some of its predecessors.

Terraria crossplay is something we've all been desperately hoping to see happen for a long time.

Penny Blood Armed Fantasia

A new development diary appeared for the twin Kickstarter for JRPG's Armed Fantasia and Penny Blood, including concept art for a transforming weapon and a wind-powered monster. The Armed Fantasia update is written by Hiroki Ishii, while Matsuzo Machida penned the one for Penny Blood.

In the section for Armed Fantasia, Ishii mainly described development continuing on the story, with new dungeon gimmicks and UI elements being developed. Ishii commented that the response from bee tribe Digital Studio, which is working on the 3D designs, has been swift and that he thinks the last boss is really cute. He also included some concept art of a mechanical katana weapon with a short video of its transforming animation, which he promises will have impressive effects added later.

Machida's section began by discussing negotiations with publishers in a post-pandemic industry, which he described as being in a "slump." He also introduced a Halloween themed piece by illustrator Kato Miyako. A concept design for a fusion monster called Ronan the Mad Tempest Knight, which he described as a more support oriented monster akin to a bard class, appeared too. Finally he elaborated on the greyhound racetrack area depicted in the final piece of concept art, which is inspired by 1920s America. Party member Luca, who can transform into a wolf, will take part in these races as training, where Machida ominously remarked that he won't only be racing against other dogs.

Yoshitaka Hirota, lead composer for Penny Blood, also left a message delving into his thoughts on the importance of sound lists. He announced that he is planning a YouTube stream for October 29, 2023 where he will be working on music for the game.

You can see some of the concept art in the gallery below:

Armed Fantasia and Penny Blood are new projects featuring development staff from classic games Wild Arms and Shadow Hearts. The projects' double Kickstarter campaign finished successfully in 2022, and the teams have been releasing monthly development diaries since.

Armed Fantasia and Penny Blood are being developed for PC, Xbox Series X and PS5, with Penny Blood scheduled for a Spring, 2025 release. You can find more updates on the games' Kickstarter Page.

Honkai: Star Rail Topaz Trailers Shows Gameplay of Her and Numby

Now that Topaz is making her playable Honkai: Star Rail debut, there are two trailers showing her and Numby. One is cinematic, while the other introduces her moveset.

First, the cinematic Topaz trailer sees her showing what it's like to work for the Interastral Peace Corporation's Strategic Investment Department. We get to watch her interact with other characters from the series' universe, collecting debuts from folks like Sampo and Herta. (Though in Herta's case, Asta ends up footing the bill.)


Things begin with Topaz' normal attack in the Owlbert "Keeping Up with Star Rail" segment. That only hits one enemy and deals fire damage. Her Difficulty Paying Skill has her use Numby to attack an enemy. That deals fire damage and assigns a Proof of Debt status that increases how much follow-up damage that opponent takes for a limited time. Finally, her Ultimate is Turn a Profit. That  sends Numby to attack an enemy. Numby also is summoned into battle with her with abilities, as well as with her Trotter Market talent, allowing it to deal follow-up attack damage.


As a reminder, Topaz isn't the only limited-time five-star showing up in Honkai: Star Rail on October 27, 2023. Seele is also coming back. This marks the very first rerun banners in the game, as the ones for her and her Light Cone appear alongside the new ones for Topaz and her Light Cone.

Honkai: Star Rail is available for the PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the Topaz banner is live between October 27, 2023 and November 14, 2023.

Guilty Gear Strive Bridget Black Pop Up Parade figure

Good Smile Company and Max Factory revealed a new Pop Up Parade figure of Guilty Gear Strive's Bridget with an alternate color scheme. Labeled as the Strive Black version, this figure will be available worldwide in 2024.

While it will be a while before it appears, people can commit to one now. Pre-orders for the figure have opened on both the Japanese and American Good Smile Online Shop. It will cost ¥5,500 / $34.99.

The figure producer previously released a Pop Up Parade figure of Bridget in her original color scheme in August 2023. This black figure variant will take inspiration from an existing color scheme in Guilty Gear Strive. The #10 color scheme for Bridget is available in the actual fighting game by purchasing the Additional Colors #2 DLC.

A lot of merchandise and figures based on Bridget have appeared ever since she made an appearance in Guilty Gear Strive's second season pass as the most requested returning character from Japan. Other than Pop Up Parade, Good Smile Company also released Nendoroids and stuffed plushes based on the character.

This is not the first time a figure based on a Guilty Gear Strive character's alternate color has appeared either. In August 2023, Broccoli revealed a 1/7 scale figure of May with her purple #7 color, which will be available worldwide in February 2024 at $199.99.

Guilty Gear Strive is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC, and arcades. The Guilty Gear Strive Black Bridget Pop Up Parade figure will be available in Japan in May 2024 and in North America in Q4 2024. Good Smile Company will close the pre-orders on November 23, 2023, at 12 PM JST (November 22, 2023, at 10 PM ET).

See the Cowboy Bebop Spike and Vicious Figure Prototype

Good Smile Company offered a first look at its upcoming Cowboy Bebop Spike Spiegel and Vicious figure. The unpainted prototype is going to be on display at the Cowboy Bebop 25th Anniversary exhibition in Japan.

The Cowboy Bebop 25th Anniversary exhibition is available at the Seibu Shibuya Movida Building between October 27, 2023 and November 19, 2023. Attendees can see art, as well as purchase official merchandise based on the series and its characters. This new figure prototype is among the items on display at the event. While the photo of the two shared online only is shown from one angle, people will be able to get a better look if they attend.

Here's a closer look at the figure. In it, Spike and Vicious are in the middle of a fight. Vicious is attempting to attack with his sword. However, Spike used his gun to block it. Both characters are wearing their traditional suits. The background shows they're fighting amidst the ruins of a dilapidated building.


While this figure isn't ready, the official site for the event shows that other items will appear. For example, ChibiMasters figures of four Cowboy Bebop characters will be sold. People will be able to pick up Spike, Jet, Faye, or Ed with Ein. There will also be acrylic stands of all four members of the crew and plush toys and keychains of them.

There's no release window yet for the Cowboy Bebop Spike Spiegel and Vicious figure yet. It is on display at the Seibu Shibuya Movida Building until November 19, 2023. The anime is available to watch on Crunchyroll, and the live-action adaptation's single season is on Netflix.

Review: Even if Tempest Dawning Connections Stays True to the Original Otome Game

Even if Tempest is one of the more unique Switch otome games, due to its courtroom elements, and fortunately Even if Tempest Dawning Connections continues to live up to the original's legacy. It maintains all of the elements that made the first story so special, while also devoting more attention to love interests and supporting characters.

In the original Even if Tempest, we saw the harrowing life of Anastasia Lynzel. A young woman with a harrowing beginning, she eventually ended up with the Fatal Rewind ability. This allows her to not only change her destiny, but also that of those around her. Eventually, she even ends up being a critical part of changing the world around her for the better. Even if Tempest Dawning Connections is both the story of what happens next with the love interests Crius, Lucien, Tyril, and Zenn, as well as see a story of what could have been and learn more about major side characters Conrad, Evelina, Ish, and Maya. However, while this is a fan disc, it still doesn't completely discard some of the more unique properties of the original, such as the supernatural and mystery elements, making it just as strong of a story.

Image via Voltage

Right off the bat, what I love about Even if Tempest Dawning Connections is the attention to detail. The characters have multiple facial expressions, and in certain cases different outfits. Their portraits move to the foreground and background to help portray a sense of space. The voice acting is fantastic. In general, the presentation is impeccable, and I appreciated the care with which everyone is depicted. It really helps set the tone, create a world, and make these people come to life. Especially since the writing and characterizations remain great, ensuring people come across as strong, realistic individuals. 

Even if Tempest Dawning Connections remains a Switch otome game that rewards players for paying attention too. A key feature in the original title involved these trials Anastasia was going through, where you'd be gathering information and uncovering truths in addition to making sure you provided helpful answers to grow closer to love interests. These remain, so it isn't like you're just enjoying heartfelt, loving moments with attractive virtual men. (Though there are plenty of those, and they're well-written, appealing, and in-character.) It means you'll still go through mysteries, learn more about the world, and feel like you're taking action while continuing to grow closer to people you established relationships with in the original game.

Image via Voltage

The only real downside to Even if Tempest Dawning Connections is that it is the sort of otome game that succumbs to the same pitfalls as ones like Norn9: Last Era on the Switch. It involves unlocking. I'm not talking about the typical earning of CGs or progression of chapters in each romance option's storyline in the Love Stories section. I'm talking about how you can't immediately jump into the alternate reality story "The Fellowship" and only initially have the Maya tale open in the Side Stories section, with the Conrad, Evelina, and Ish ones locked away. It doesn't take too much time to go through routes and gain access to these additional elements. Still, it's a bit frustrating that things that shouldn't be locked off do require you to potentially go through elements you aren't interested in first.

Especially since, unlike its predecessor, Even if Tempest Dawning Connections ran perfectly right away. I experienced an array of crashes with the original Switch otome game. Voltage clearly made sure to avoid the same situation, which is appreciated. (To the company's credit, I did revisit the first game ahead of this review and found it ran much better as well.)

Image via Voltage

Even if Tempest Dawning Connections is a Switch otome game just as attractive as its predecessor. Anastasia is still a strong, incredible heroine. The four love interests are still well-rounded and appealing characters. Their routes still have the investigation elements from the original game. Plus, the supporting cast members that may have appealed to players also get their moments. Top it all off with lots of CGs and no bugs, and it's a fantastic follow-up to a fun game.

Even if Tempest Dawning Connections is available for the Nintendo Switch

Shiva Co-op Battle Appears in Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis

There's a new way to fight Shiva in Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis, as her Co-op Battle is now available. People can challenge her in this way for one week.

Square Enix and Applibot offered more insight on what to expect from this fight. Up to three people can join in to face Shiva in-game. Doing so nets someone Co-op Medals, which can be swapped for Weapon Parts. Summon Memories and weapons can also be earned. Some Co-op Battle Missions will also appear. Getting through them will net people 20 Stamina Tonics and 1,500 Blue Crystals.

While this marks Shiva's debut as a Co-op Battle, she's already been in the game for a while. So have her Summon Weapons, so people have another option for getting and upgrading them. These are the Shiva's Blade for Cloud and Shiva Cannon for Barret. Both deal MAG ice damage to enemies and offer +50% fire resistance to the characters when equipped. Other traditional summons, like Ifrit, also appear.

Final Fantasy VII Ever Crisis is available for mobile devices, with the Shiva Co-op Battle appearing until November 2, 2023. The game will eventually come to PCs as well, though Square Enix and Applibot haven't set a release window for that version yet.
