     How to get Unstable Energy and Corrupt Energy in Pacific Drive

How do you get Unstable Energy and Corrupt Energy in Pacific Drive? Energy is an essential resource in Ironwood Studios' survival sim, allowing you to kit out your car with the latest upgrades and escape fatal storms. It's stored in Anchors scattered throughout the Olympic Exclusion Zone, represented as yellow circles on the junction map. The amount of energy stored in each Anchor varies, identifiable by the size of its energy circle – the greater the circle, the more energy (or (kLim) you can get from it.

Unstable Energy and Corrupt Energy are both required to unlock mid-to-late-game equipment and upgrades, including the LIM Shield. This high-tech kit is essential to complete Pacific Drive's story, so be sure to keep an eye out for the Pacific Drive ThermoSap Crystals required to craft it while you're out and about in the survival game. Now we've got the general tips out of the way, here's exactly how to find Pacific Drive Unstable Energy and Corrupt Energy.

In 1997, few games were tackling the kind of themes that Final Fantasy VII does. Even by today's standards, not a lot of RPGs address and bring mental health to the forefront like Final Fantasy VII did. Final Fantasy VII stands out as a pioneer in addressing trauma in video games, particularly through the character of Cloud Strife. It also weaves a narrative surrounding grief and the nature of life directly into it's gameplay, forcing you to think about and react to death. The game's portrayal of trauma and healing is significant and set the standard for not just RPGs, but the whole industry moving forward.

Before delving into the topic, I want to make it clear that I'm not a mental health professional, nor do I intend for this to be a comprehensive analysis of mental health. However, I will discuss how Final Fantasy VII addresses weighty themes like grief and post-traumatic stress. With that in mind, let's explore how Final Fantasy VII navigates the complexities of trauma.

Screenshot by Siliconera

Cloud is arguably one of the earliest video game characters to showcase symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). His backstory, including his tenure as a SOLDIER, the traumatic Nibelheim Incident, and his time in captivity, all contribute to his enduring mental health struggles.

During the Nibelheim Incident, Cloud's world is shattered. He witnesses the destruction of his hometown, the loss of his friends, and the apparent death of Sephiroth. After this, he is held captive and experimented on by Hojo for four years. This extended period of captivity and experimentation with Jenova cells further exacerbates Cloud's trauma, leaving him with deep psychological scars that continue to haunt him throughout the game.

These traumatic events lead to Cloud subconsciously developing a false persona, merging pieces of his identity with that of Zack Fair. This complex psychological phenomenon is a testament to the depth of Cloud's trauma and the profound impact it has had on his psyche.

Throughout the game, Cloud grapples with his identity and memories, often experiencing flashbacks and hallucinations. It's as if he's haunted by his own past. These symptoms align with those of PTSD, including intrusive memories, avoidance of triggers, and negative changes in mood and cognition.

Cloud's journey to recovery is a central theme of Final Fantasy VII. With the support of his friends and through confronting his past, he gradually comes to terms with his true identity and the events that shaped him. His story highlights the importance of seeking help and support for mental health issues, even in a fictional setting.

The game's portrayal of Cloud's struggles with PTSD is groundbreaking for its time. It shines a light on the psychological toll of trauma and the journey to healing. The game's themes of life, death, and the interconnectedness of all beings are underscored by its treatment of trauma and healing.

Screenshot by Siliconera

Hironobu Sakaguchi, father of Final Fantasy and producer of Final Fantasy VII, lost his mother during production of Final Fantasy III. This personal loss influenced the development of Final Fantasy VII, leading to the concept of the Lifestream. This thematic foundation laid the groundwork for the game's exploration of life and the connection to the planet.

The game deeply intertwines its narrative with the idea of the Lifestream, which metaphorically represents life itself. This concept is further explored in the game's treatment of death and grief. Final Fantasy VII features several emotional deaths, but none are as shocking and impactful as Aerith's.

Aerith was no side character; she was a mainstay in your party. You invested in her gear, making it seem like she was here to stay. Until she wasn't. Her sudden death was a gut-punch in 1997. The absence of a boss theme in the subsequent fight, replaced instead by Aerith's theme, underscores the emotional weight of her passing. It's as if we, the players, are in shock, unable to fully register the boss fight.

The party mourns, and players felt it too. Over the years, countless players have sought ways to keep Aerith alive through various in-game actions, of course unsuccessfully. It's fascinating to see how people respond to it; it's almost as if this digital death has affected players in a real-life way, leaving a lasting impact.

In the end, Aerith's death strengthens the game's overarching theme of life. Although she has physically departed, her memory and spirit live on, serving as a reminder of both the fragility and resilience of life itself.

In conclusion, Final Fantasy VII's exploration of trauma is a testament to its narrative depth and emotional impact. The game's themes of life, death, and the interconnectedness of all beings are underscored by its treatment of trauma and healing. As a groundbreaking work in the realm of video game storytelling, Final Fantasy VII continues to resonate with players and critics alike, setting a high standard for addressing complex themes in the medium.

Final Fantasy VII is available on the PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Final Fantasy VII Remake is available on the PS4, PS5, and PC. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch on the PS5 on February 29, 2024.

Genshin Impact Getting a Character Training Guide Feature in 4.5

Ahead of the 4.5 Genshin Impact Special Program and update, HoYoVerse announced the game will get a character training guide. This is an in-game feature that will be designed to help people decide how to build characters.

Here's how it will work. When you open the main Paimon Menu, the Training Guide will appear in the same row as the Archive, Character Archive, and Character icons. Once selected, you can see the Party Character Power screen. This will let you know their Adventure Power level. As seen in the screenshot below, it shows how a Level 90 character who is fully built will be recognized as "formidable," while a level 20 one would be pointed to as "weak." An "Enhance" button will also appear alongside each character's name. 

If someone selects Enhance, they can then specifically check Character Level, Weapon, Artifacts, and Character Talents section to see if they're optimized. The Character Level section of the Genshin Impact Character Training Guide feature basically shows if you can ascend or level up the character and explains what items you'd need to do so. The weapons and artifacts tabs suggest which equipment you should use, as well as the recommended level you should get them up to, based on what other players use. Finally, the Character Talents page acts like the Character Level one and tells people which talents you should upgrade and what you'll need to do so.

Genshin Impact is available for the PS4, PS5, PC, and mobile devices, and the 4.5 Special Program will air on March 1, 2024. It appears the next update could arrive on March 13, 2024, the day after the Xiao and Yae Miko banners end.

Unicorn Overlord will be included in Atlus TGS 2023 Media Briefing Which 2023 best Game Announcement Are You Most Thankful For

The final episode in the Atlus "Josef's Guide to Combat" Unicorn Overlord trailer series is here, and this time the gameplay element at the forefront is the strategic battles. It shows how to deploy allies during stages and fight foes.

The video begins by showing how someone can deploy units from bases. (This may be familiar from the recently released Switch demo.) You then have a time limit and must get your units to accomplish tasks before time runs out. When allies run into an enemy unit, a battle can begin. However, if multiple units are around an enemy before combat starts in Unicorn Overlord, then you can swap which unit will take part to take advantage of strengths and weaknesses. It also goes over how if one of your units "wins" in combat, the enemy will be knocked back and put in a state where the next time one of your groups of fighters attacks, they'll strike first. 

After introducing basic concepts, the video goes over Valor in Unicorn Overlord. You start with a certain amount when a battle begins and earn more from altercations. These can be used to deploy more units or use a unit's Valor Skills. The one shown in the video was called Blade Wave. It ended up dealing damage to enemies outside of actual combat. 

Here's the full Unicorn Overlord gameplay trailer. In addition to the combat concepts mentioned, it also went over features like special tools or building on the field like encampments or machinery.


Unicorn Overlord will come to the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, and Xbox Series X on March 8, 2024.
