Genshin Impact just celebrated its third anniversary while Honkai Star Rail is currently making its way through its launch year. Clearly, HoYoverse took many lessons learned from the former to heart when developing the latter, because Star Rail now has yet another feature that Genshin Impact should consider copying. Instead of combining its two limited five-star Light Cones into one banner, Honkai Star Rail allows players to pull for one or the other -- just like with five-star characters.

Is there a Modern Warfare 3 zombies mode? One of the most popular Call of Duty modes, zombies keeps fans coming back to the series to defeat waves of undead creatures - whether it's in Nuketown, an '80s theme park, or the Titanic. Every time a new CoD game comes out, we all want to know if it features a zombies mode.

Call of Duty Zombies has evaded the Modern Warfare series before now, but when the MW3 release date comes around, Treyarch brings the beloved mode to the Modern Warfare universe for the first time with Operation Deadbolt. Modern Warfare 3 zombies mode drops us into an open-world adventure for the first time in the FPS game, so here's everything you need to know about the all-new MW3 zombies mode.

     Song of Nunu review – LoL spinoff hits some bum notes

The Song of Nunu is a delightful exploration of some of League of Legends' most fascinating lore, though its gameplay often feels more like a stalactite-filled obstacle course than a smooth, Willump-y belly slide across the Freljord's frostscapes. As Tequila Works daintily treads themes of grief and found family through Song of Nunu's story, its overall execution is as clumsy as a yeti's disco. Above all else, though, the studio has excelled at weaving together a cohort of League's most-loved champions, and the ice-forged brotherhood between its two protagonists leaves a lasting impression after the credits roll.

     How to open the Alan Wake 2 gift shop safe

How do you unlock the Alan Wake 2 gift shop safe? Two concurrent stories are running throughout Alan Wake 2, both based on two books in Alan's trilogy of Alex Casey novels. One is based on the second playable protagonist, Saga, and it's the third chapter of Return that takes us to the Coffee World amusement park. As you explore this area, you'll likely find the gift shop is sealed away.

Unlocking the Alan Wake 2 gift shop safe will be a bit of a challenge. This is because, to get inside, you're not looking for a key but a different type of item to help you get inside. After that, you're presented with one of Alan Wake 2 's many puzzles, something praised as a highlight in the Alan Wake 2 review. Solving it is necessary for progressing through the story, but other puzzles can be solved to unlock Alan Wake 2 weapon upgrades or Alan Wake 2 word of power upgrades.

October 30, 2023 New code added.

September 23, 2023 New code added.

What are the latest Disney Dreamlight Valley codes? We've done some digging to make sure we've got the latest codes available from Gameloft. Codes weren't available in the Dreamlight Valley during its first few months, but with the festival of Foolishness now in swing, there are a whopping ten codes currently available, so read on to make sure you've claimed them all.

The Dreamlight Valley golden potato code was the first to come to the Disney game, and gives you just that, a golden potato. It doesn't even do anything yet, but the exciting news is that it appears to be part of a future Dreamlight Valley quest. The code might no longer available, but if you still don't have a golden potato, you can pick one up in Scrooge's shop. Other codes have since been released with various celebrations, including the Dreamlight Park community challenge and the Festival of Foolishness, for which all the Dreamlight Valley codes can be found below.

Crytek have no plans to make a sequel to sweaty monster-culling FPS Hunt: Showdown, and will thus hopefully avoid the publicity problems currently faced by Activision-Blizzard's Overwatch 2 and Valve's Counter-Strike 2 - both presented as sequels with fancier technology, but in practice, more like service-game content seasons arbitrarily upgraded into replacements, with the 'previous' games, Overwatch and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, being taken offline to avoid splitting the playerbase.

Speaking to me in an interview about Hunt's evolution since its launch out of early access in 2019, the game's general manager David Fifield observed that while Crytek may yet make another Hunt game it won't be a straight Showdown follow-up - and it certainly won't come at the expense of your ability to play the original game.

Back in June, when our Ed got a 30-minute hands-off glimpse of Avatar: Frontiers Of Pandora, he had suspicions that Ubisoft's next big open world-athon was hiding some dark, terrible secret beneath the surface. It was almost too good, and too lovely-looking to be completely true, he proposed, and the brief tour of this rather enormous-looking game wasn't quite long enough to really dig beneath the surface to see if Ubisoft's lofty promises would hold up to closer scrutiny.

Now, just over a month from release, I've finally been able to put it under a proper microscope, playing two hours of the thing from around the 25% mark of its campaign. And it really is as visually impressive as Ed suggested all those months ago. At long last, this is a game that looks and feels like an actual "next-gen" blockbuster (or as much as a game can, at least, when we're already several years into the current generation cycle). But Ed was also right to feel a wee bit suspicious of Frontiers Of Pandora. Perhaps not in the way he expected, but enough that I heard the same thing being muttered over and over again by almost everyone at the end of my preview session at Ubisoft's UK offices: "I can't work out where the heck I'm meant to be going, or what I'm supposed to do."

Apologies to the chief, but there's a not-entirely-accurate bit in Katharine's post announcing Starfield as October's RPS Game Club game. I, of the RPS Treehouse, do truly love Starfield, and have only been quiet about it because admitting you enjoy The Grey Bethesda Game but couldn't get into Baldur's Gate 3 or Elden Ring feels a bit like going to the Savoy Grill and only ordering chips. No one will ask you to leave, but they'll probably start questioning your judgement.

But dammit, I like chips, and I like Starfield! I like its roving space captain fantasy, I like its utilitarian aesthetic, and I like how its click-clacking guns sound like extremely violent mechanical keyboards. Especially if I get to fire them at floating pirates, while I'm also floating, and said firing punts me upwards into a ceiling.

Next Build-a-Bear Sanrio Plush Is Purple Kuromi with Baku

Build-a-Bear announced its latest Sanrio plush toy is a purple version of Kuromi and a Baku buddy. People can get the characters alone or in a $60.50/£48.50 set together.

Here's a list of all the different Kuromi plush options. Note that the two set options both include a pair of themed pajamas the character can wear. Said PJs can be purchased separately for $13.50/£11.

  • Purple Kuromi - $32/£24
  • Purple Kuromi Sleeper Gift Set - $45.50/£35
  • Purple Kuromi Sleeper Gift Set with Baku Buddy plush - $60.50/£48.50

The Baku Buddy stuffed animal can be bought on its own for $15/£13.50.

Here's a closer look at the new Sanrio plush toys.

Sanrio characters frequently show up at the retailer. For example, in February 2023 a Cinnamoroll plush showed up at Build-a-Bear again. A $90 giant version of it also recently reappeared in October 2023, but sold out.

In game news, Baku recently joined Kuromi in Hello Kitty Island Adventures. As part of a September 2023 update, her Halloween event appeared and Baku joined the roster of potential visitors. People needed to take part in the event to earn Spooky furniture in order to get Baku to visit and eventually move in, however.

The Purple Kuromi plush and Baku buddy are now both available via Build-a-Bear as part of the retailer's Sanrio selection. People can find it in-store or online.

God of War Coming to GOG PlayStation PC Games

GOG teased that more of the Sony PlayStation games will be coming to the PC storefront in future. While the company initially announced this through a cryptic social media post, it also added store pages for God of War and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection.

The initial announcement from GOG featured a blurred image overlaid with requests to bring more PlayStation games to the service. This was accompanied by blocked out text that hinted at the games that were coming. However, some commenters noted that the blurred image looked like the cover art for the 2018 God of War reboot, and that the title fit perfectly into part of the blocked-out text.


Since then, store pages on GOG have been added for both God of War and the Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection. Both games are currently listed as coming soon. The selection of Sony PlayStation games on GOG is currently much smaller than other PC storefronts, with only Days Gone and Horizon Zero Dawn available. However, with these two new releases, this is set to change.

This marks the latest in Sony's push towards releasing the company's games on PCs. Multiple first-party PlayStation games have released via Steam and Epic, with the most recent being Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. Horizon Forbidden West has been confirmed to be the next PC release, coming in 2024 to Steam and Epic.

God of War and Uncharted: Legacy of Thieves Collection are coming soon to GOG.

Sega announced that Yoko Taro's mobile shoot 'em up game 404 Game Re:Set will end service on January 5, 2024. The game launched in Japan on April 25, 2023.

Producer Gosuke Nakamura addressed players in a Producer Letter, apologizing for the game terminating service less than a year since its launch. The 404 Game Re:Set development team had been involved in collaboration events, as well as various other plans outside of the game, but were unable to create enough interest to keep the game going.

Additionally, the development team has created a variety of content for players to enjoy during the remaining 2 months of service for 404 Game Re:Set, and even after service for the game ends.

Chapter 9 for 404 Game Re:Set will come out on December 13, 2023, and Chapter 10 will appear on the same day service ends, on January 5, 2024, when the game will also receive an offline mode. Furthermore, various events are prepared to appear throughout November 2023.

404 Game Re:Set was revealed as a collaboration between Yoko Taro and Sega on February 10, 2023. The game is a crossover shoot 'em up between a variety of classic Japanese video game franchises, like Virtua Fighter, Outrun, Fatal Fury, and Crazy Taxi among others.

404 Game Re:Set is available on mobile devices in Japan until January 5, 2024, when the game will end service.

Bayonetta 3 First Anniversary Art Includes a Family Portrait

PlatinumGames team members and artists released Bayonetta 3 first anniversary art, and one of the most notable pieces is a family portrait of characters with spoilers. There are five pieces total, with the one having a spoiler-free version of it.

First, here are the pieces of Bayonetta 3 art that don't involve spoilers for the game. Series character Mari Shimazaki designer created one of Bayonetta and Viola. PlatinumGames' Makoto Hoshina drew Gomorrah. Daible, another PlatinumGames artist, drew Bayonetta as well. Finally, the last image that isn't a major spoiler is from PlatinumGames' Masami Ichikawa, who worked on PR and merchandise for the title. That image shows Bayonetta as she appeared in all three entries.

Editor's Note: There will be spoilers for Bayonetta 3 below.

As for the Bayonetta 3 characters appearing in the first anniversary family photo, that art was drawn by PlatinumGames' Curie Baek. It features Bayonetta with Luka, and it has Viola as a toddler and his shoulders. The version with the spoilers hidden looks as though Viola drew Cheshire on top of the picture.

Bayonetta 3 is available for the Nintendo Switch.

Majin Tensei Blind Thinker Switch PC

G-Mode will release Majin Tensei: Blind Thinker for Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam in Japan. However, there is currently no release date. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

Majin Tensei: Blind Thinker originally came out for mobile devices exclusively to Japan between July-November 2007. The game is a turn-based strategy RPG, and is a spin-off part of the first game in the Majin Tensei series. Majin Tensei is itself a 1994 Super Famicom strategy sub-series of the main Megami Tensei series.

The story of Majin Tensei: Blind Thinker is set in Neo Tokyo on the year 20XX, and involves protagonist Yuji Kashiwagi finding a Demon Summoning Program left by his missing father. The game has multiple routes and endings tied to which supporting character the protagonist allies with. Staple mechanics of the series, like demonic negotiation and fusion, appear in the game, and some have been simplified.

G-Mode has previously ported various mobile Megami Tensei and Persona spin-offs to Switch and PC as part of the G-Mode Archives+ series. Recent ports include Persona: Ikuu no Tou Hen and Megami Tensei Gaiden: Last Bible New Testament III: Mugen no Eiyuu.

Akai Haato Return haachama

Hololive Vtuber Akai "Haachama" Haato will return to streaming on November 1, 2023. The performer has been on an eight month-long hiatus while recovering from health problems.

Akai "Haachama" Haato teased her return on a social media post that included a picture of her model, alongside a Japanese caption that translates to "(Hi) everyone… Do you remember?" Additionally, the post included the November 1, 2023 9pm JST date and time, suggesting a return.

Shortly after, a subsequent post including the same date and hour would confirm her comeback. The post included a link to a scheduled YouTube stream, as well as a new art piece depicting Haachama with the Japanese characters for the word "return" and the caption "I'm looking forward to meeting everyone."

You can take a look at the original Akai Haato announcement post for the VTuber's return stream below.

Haato initially announced her hiatus due to health concerns on March 20, 2023, days after her stage appearance at the Hololive Super Expo 2023 had to be canceled. Haato would later share a positive update on her health on July 24, 2023, during which she told fans that she would continue to rest until she felt ready to return.

The Akai Haato return stream will be held on November 1, 2023, eight months after Haachama announced her hiatus.

Little Goody Two Shoes Interview

From start to finish, Little Goody Two Shoes certainly pulls out all of the stops to impress the player. The quality of its artwork, music, and storytelling combine to create a mesmerizing experience you won't want to miss.

Players step into the shoes of Elise, a prideful errand girl who isn't immune to occasional boasting. She's fed up with the small town of Kieferberg and wants nothing more than to be blessed with fortune and a chance to live luxuriously. Unfortunately for her, she's currently stuck in quite opposite conditions, struggling to keep food on the table. On top of that, many of the townsfolk treat her as lesser than, despite her efforts to stand up for herself.

One dark and spooky night, Elise finds a strange girl in her storage shed. She takes it upon herself to house the poor girl for the time being. From then on, strange phenomena keep occurring in Kieferberg, and the townsfolk grow more suspicious of Elise by the day. It's your job to help her keep the skepticism at bay, while also going on romantic dates with cute girls.

During the day, Elise can take odd jobs to make enough pennies to feed herself as you guide her to successfully wooing your favorite girl. It's a simple enough gameplay loop to understand, but the townsfolk that say new things each day and the varying experiences to enjoy keep things feeling fresh. The NPC dialogue will change depending on certain factors, like what in-game day it is and who is accompanying you in your party. I found myself saying "just one more day," even before I realized I played a full in-game week already.

You won't just be making money for yourself, either. A pesky, pink-haired girl named Muffy will blackmail you into giving her what she wants. Every day. You'll need to keep her quiet to manage suspicion by making sure to feed her whatever she wants. A girl has got to eat, after all. She's quirky and cute, so I personally loved her. I also love the dynamic between her and Elise that's usually played up for comic relief. It's a critical relationship, as you need to make sure the other townsfolk don't get too suspicious of you, too. You typically do this during special events where you have to try to sway their opinion of you by choosing convincing dialogue options, similar to a standard visual novel, but with a lot more suspense and intrigue.

What pleasantly surprised me was the inclusion of minigames to pass the time during the day. These can range from collecting chicken eggs and chopping wood to playing games with the local children. They're usually extremely simple, but enjoyable enough that I wanted to improve at them. Plus, most of them don't last for too long, so you can go back to exploring and dating quickly. There was the occasional frustrating minigame thrown into the mix, though. They become even more stress-inducing knowing that your playthrough could end later down the line if you didn't earn enough money from them.

This is also when allies come in. Rozenmarine can potentially help you out when it comes to getting work done if she joins your party. She can even help you avoid raising suspicion, too. However, this can easily backfire if you leave her alone for too long. If you don't keep an eye on her, she'll start running her mouth around town, raising even more suspicion. It makes for an experience that does require some planning, or else Elise's story could end prematurely.

During the night, you'll be exploring Elise's nightmares and the woodlands outside town. It is during these segments when you'll complete puzzles that'll have you fully surveying the areas in order to hopefully progress before you're confronted by something sinister. I found managing Elise's health, hunger, and sanity during these segments can be a bit challenging, if I wasn't prepared. Early on, the game will be nice to you and scatter some items around to help you out. Later on, it won't do so as much. Also, you won't be healed just by sleeping or passing time, so you need to manage your items wisely in order to stay alive. It can be nerve wracking, but I found it kept my brain focused.

Though in terms of horror, the game varies wildly in how creepy it can be at any certain time. The monsters can either look so scary that they'll have a good chance of haunting your nightmares, or they'll be somewhat cute and appear non-threatening. In a way, it mirrors the daytime and nighttime mechanics of the game, but I feel there are certainly times when even during the day you'll get spooked. The game mostly relies on small jump scares and dark lighting to creep you out, though. There are times when the creep factor can spike, but overall it's more mysterious. As someone who gets scared easily, I found that this made it easier for me to properly enjoy the game, but it could be a deal-breaker for you if you're looking for a frightening horror experience.

When it comes to the nightmarish segments where you're actually at risk of dying, there are times when the puzzles can get challenging. Thankfully, a red ribbon save point is always conveniently placed before these challenges, so you can retry easily. However, there are times when you'll have to skip through a scene of dialogue in order to try again, which can be a pain. Though it can be frustrating to have to retrace your steps if you ever find yourself in an unfortunate circumstance and your life ends, Little Goody Two Shoes does make sure to remind you to save often. Save points are placed everywhere on the map, so you hopefully will be able to stay vigilant about the dangers ahead of you and won't have to reload often when preparing to further explore and date.

The romantic elements are so adorable in Little Goody Two Shoes, and they really furthers each character's story. Each character gets seven dates, and they're never boring. Each one helps you get to know the girl even more and truly elevates the relationship between her and Elise. Of course, you'll have to select the correct dialogue options to clear the dates, usually - in typical visual novel fashion. There's a lot of room for replay value here, if you so desire.

The world extended much further than I originally thought too. I could tell it was created with meticulous detail. Even if the area is only used for a mere moment, you're able to soak in the beautiful landscapes as Elise wishes for more. It's not an open world or anything, but each area is filled with something to marvel at or interact with. That being said, a fast travel option would probably be helpful. Although, I frankly also worry it might take away from the overall experience by making it more difficult to come across events.

You would think a game with so many different art styles would clash, but Little Goody Two Shoes blends them well. Not only are the visuals more than enough already, but you're also treated to writing that revels in its use of imagery. Just when you think you've got the full picture from the in-game graphics and illustrations, interacting further with the world unveils more to appreciate than you initially thought.

The soundtrack is varied, too. You'll be treated to a slew of tunes like adorable 8-bit bops, creepy atmospheric tracks, and full-on broadway-level musical productions. The soft, melodic vocals harmonizing in the game's overworld somehow never feel out of place or outstay their welcome. The choir only helps you become even more immersed into the world, calling back to the significance of the church to the townsfolk. It also brings to mind classic Disney films, which carries with it the storybook fantasy this game's aesthetics is selling to me.

Little Goody Two Shoes' themes of always wanting more than what you have hit particularly close to home. Elise's desires are always surrounding you - and always just out of arm's reach. The developers of this game took great care into shaping this beautiful world to fit with Elise's characterization. This game is simply oozing with charm. You can feel the love and dedication that went into creating this game at every moment, in every aspect - from the artwork to the story to the sound design.

Little Goody Two Shoes will be released on October 31, 2023, on Nintendo Switch, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PCs via Steam.

NIS America announced the PS5 release dates for The Legend of Heroes games Trails of Cold Steel 3 and 4. Both will debut on February 16, 2024. 

We already knew both games would head to the platform in the beginning of 2024. When NIS America first announced these ports, it offered an "early 2024" release window. There's no release announced for the first two entries in this quartet, which focus on Rean Schwarzer's early days at Thors Military Academy with the original Class VII. Only the second half, which focuses on Rean's life as a teacher at the school's Branch Campus with a new Class VII, which consists of Altina, Ash, Juna, Kurt, and Musse. During the course of the second half of the story, Juna serves as a deuteragonist and the quartet ties in to other entries like Trails in the Sky and Trails to Azure.

In addition to the shared release date, there's also a refresher trailer showing what people can expect from the PS5 versions of the games. It begins with overviews of the cast of the game. Following that, we see gameplay of the characters in-battle in both installments.


The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel 3 and PS5 release dates are February 16, 2024. The third and fourth entries are available on the PS4, Switch, and PC worldwide.

The compilation will also have special online ranking versions for seven games, including both Triotos and GunDuel.

The player will be able to adjust the gameplay screen in this compilation. They can either view the games from a CRT television with fellow in-game characters or focus entirely on the game screen. Finally, the compilation's title screen will show a 3D model of Chief Arino's room as it appeared in the original TV show.

Bandai Namco has also uploaded the release date announcement trailer for Retro Game Challenge: GameCenter CX 1+2 Replay on its YouTube channel.
