What are the newest Murder Mystery codes? Roblox games rarely throw up an intense experience as is offered by MM2, a game where you could be saddled with one of three roles; the murderer, a bystander, or the sheriff. The murderer has to, well, murder. The bystanders have to avoid the wrath of said murderer, and the sheriff has to figure out, and eliminate, the bad person. Sound familiar?

This Roblox game is more cerebral than most, which means you'll rely on your wits most of the time. Still, having a helping hand in the form of some freebies via MM2 codes never hurts. Blade Ball codes shouldn't be ignored if you're after other gifts. We also have Project Mugetsu codes and Blox Fruits codes that can help you grind those long-tail adventure games.

     The world's best-selling but worst gaming mouse is 10 today

The Logitech G502 might not have quite the pedigree of the likes of the nearly 20-year-old Razer DeathAdder, but it's still one of the longer-running mouse names on the market, and it's just marked its 10th year. In all that time, it has proved hugely popular, selling over 21 million units, so clearly it's got something right. However, on the day Logitech is celebrating its best seller's birthday with a free mousepad giveaway, I'm here to say I'm surprised this mouse ever sold so well.

While the current Logitech G502 isn't listed on our best gaming mouse guide at the moment, it does offer masses of useful extra buttons, a tiltable scroll wheel, and a comfortable design. It's just that it did some gaming mouse stuff terribly for a long time.

On the one hand, you've got to deal with interdimensional horrors of various flavours, such as multiple-storey cryptids and squishy skinless wolves; on the other, invading squads of Combiney soldiers. Fortunately, you've got a big fat Ivy League brain stuffed with knowledge of killer gadgets, base construction, subterranean farming and battlefield medicine.

Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man is a legendary drawing of a nude with his arms and legs reaching towards the rim and corners of a circle and square. It's often invoked as an archetype for the humanist worldview of Man the Measure and Centre of all Things, holding a perfectly proportioned universe in shape. Rin D'Lorah, the heroine of new narrative RPG Sky Of Tides, is a bit like the Vitruvian Man, and the result is a game I find at once bewitching and powerfully offputting in its refusal to satisfy the conventions of the genre.

Over the past while a few games have had post-launch patches, the exemplars being Starfield and Stardew valley, which have post-launch patches of different kinds and for different reasons. We take some time on the Electronic Wireless Show podcast to talk about this patch of patches, and what it was like in the good ol' days, where a broken game came out and stayed broken, gosh darn it!

Nate isn't here today, which means I can make fun of him for owning fish, or whatever it is he does, but in his stead James steps up with an RGB lighting-themed game where I have to guess what accessories people stuck lights on to turn into gamer accessories. This is because Razer stuck RGB lights on a pandemic mask and are in trouble over it now. Naughty Razer. Plus, we talk about the games we're playing right now, and dish you up some juicy recommendations at the end of the show.

For someone who's spent an embarrassing amount of my life staring at virtual maps, I am a downright directionless dunce when it comes to geography. Not 'the country of Africa' bad, but certainly not good enough that you'd want me on your pub quiz team. Also, I still do the Shredded Wheat rhyme internally when I have to follow directions. However, I do enjoy making maps turn a different colour in strategy games, Total War chiefly among them. Well, one such map is expanding before my confused idiot eyes, that being Total War: Pharaoh's. It's getting a new, distinctly Mesopotamia and Aegea-shaped bit. I believe that's just south of Eastopotamia and Wegea.

Uniqlo Star Wars: Remastered Shirts Appear in the US movies films

The Star Wars Uniqlo shirts won't just be in Japan for May the Fourth, as the worldwide storefront is now selling the collection as well. This is a selection of six shirts based on original movie posters for early Star Wars films.

This is the same Star Wars: Remastered collection we already knew was on the way. They all feature designs from artist Kosuke Kawamura. There are some based on the original film, as well as the movies Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. They are all unisex adult shirts that start at XXS and go all the way up to XXL or XXXL in some cases. Each one is $24.90. The price is more expensive, as the Japanese versions are 1,990 yen (~$13.48). 

As a refresher, here's how the six designs look. In many cases, the art is on the back and the front features the Star Wars logo.

The last few Uniqlo crossovers prior to this involved both anime and game series. Oshi no Ko, The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, and Final Fantasyones appeared in the store or were announced.

The Star Wars Uniqlo May the Fourth shirts are now available in North America.

However, there are no set dates for North America yet. The update mentioned production issues and a delayed shipping date.

Review: Touhou Mystia's Izakaya Is a Delightfully Cozy Game Switch

There are a lot of Touhou Project and Touhou-adjacent games, so much so that I didn't even catch the doujin game Touhou Mystia's Izakaya when it first released on Steam in 2021. I'm kicking myself now, because apparently I did myself a huge disservice by not paying attention. Now that the Switch version is here, I've found its one of the better cozy games I've played in 2024. 

First, to assuage any anxiety you may have, you do not need any Touhou Project knowledge to play the doujin game Touhou Mystia's Izakaya on the Switch. It is entirely self-contained. Mystia Lorelei and Kyouko Kasodani are both supporting cast members who even fans might not know or recognize at a glance. There are cameos from more notable members of the series' cast, but they're introduced and handled in such a way that you'll be fine if you're entirely new to the series. All you need to know is that the setting is a land filled with supernatural beings and yokai that's basically next door to our own world. 

Touhou Mystia's Izakaya plays with that notion at the very outset. In case someone didn't notice Mystia's sparrow wings and Kyouko's horns, they will notice that the restaurant management simulation begins with the two opening an established izakaya for the evening, a being with a never-ending appetite decimating everything, and history-eating half-beast rewinding time to give Mystia a second chance to satisfy the menace. From there, it's a fairly relaxed, incredibly cozy game about meeting Gensokyo's residents, collecting ingredients and recipes, running a restaurant, and becoming a success.

When I first saw Touhou Mystia's Izakaya, I initially wondered about just how easy it might be to play on the Switch and if it would be more stressful than cozy game. This is because there's a bit of a zoomed out appearance, there are a lot of things happening on-screen during the serving process, and the series' trademark spell cards come into play while running the restaurant at night. However, don't let the sometimes simplistic view and array of information packed on the screen dissuade you. It's all properly introduced and handled very well once you get into the game and start running your business.

In fact, its pacing is really pretty perfect. During the day, you prepare for service at night. This means going to gather ingredients, finding new recipes you can cook, and meeting Touhou Project characters. There are even some mild relationship elements, as you can befriend the "special" customers that are series mainstays like Reimu Hakurei and Marisa Kirisame. Getting to know them better makes it easier to serve them when they visit, since they won't just tell you what they want like a normal customer, and increases their strength. This exploration phase is also how you find new employees to join Mystia and Kyouko, like Kosuzu Motoori or Sakuya Izayoi. You get to visit more and more areas of the region, granting access to new items, more types of food, and more people.

Once night hits though, you head back to the kitchen. Things start small, as initially Mystia is working to pay off Kyouko's 3,000 yen debt. This also means only offering probably one type of drink and one or two food items. However, you eventually can set up additional cooking stations, different meals depending on ingredients and recipes found, and serve more people. Getting additional workers, with up to three assisting with serving, helps with the time management element. But really, it can come down to sometimes having certain items prepped and ready at all times if you know who is supposed to be showing up. Each dish only takes a few seconds to cook, so even though there is a time management element, it never feels like too much pressure.

What's also great is that you're getting the full Touhou Mystia's Izakaya game on the Nintendo Switch, to ensure that you can really take your time and get cozy with it. The five DLC add-ons, which include more locations, characters, and story opportunities are available here. It also plays really well on the system, with the controls being perfect. The localization is fine, considering this is a doujin game. Most importantly, even though there's a lot of text tossed on you, the full-screen sprite art looks absolutely impeccable on a Switch OLED. It's well-suited to the handheld, which means I'm looking forward to heading back to it later to finish the add-ons I didn't complete and just enjoy the ambiance.

In a way, I'm still shocked at how absolutely delightful Touhou Mystia's Izakaya is, and I'm so pleased at the prospect that a Switch release might garner more attention for every version of the game. It's so much better than I anticipated, and the pacing and nature of it make it a perfect cozy game for someone who wants to sit back, make some friends, and run a restaurant. While the idea of it being a Touhou Project doujin game might be a bit daunting, it's worth a chance if you love the life sim and restaurant management genres or just want to build up your library of cozy games. There's more to it than you'd expect.

Touhou Mystia's Izakaya is available for the Nintendo Switch and PC via Steam

Final Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night Update Adds Chaos and VS Modes

The final Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night update will come to consoles and PCs in May 2024, adding Chaos and VS modes and both paid and free cosmetic costumes for Miriam. While the Switch gets it on May 16, 2024, every other platform gets the update on May 9, 2024.

There will be three paid cosmetics launched alongside 1.5. Their names weren't revealed in the update, but official art offered a peek at them. Each Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night upcoming Cosmetic Pack includes a costume and equipment for Miriam. There is also a stat bar for each one if you put it all on at once.

girls' frontline ghost in the shell

There will be a crossover event involving Ghost in the Shell in Girls' Frontline. The event will go live in 2024, but there isn't a launch date yet.

There is currently no information about the Ghost in the Shell event that'll be in Girls' Frontline. More information on it will appear on the official social media account for the game closer to launch. According to the press release, both of the series focus on action in a cyber-futuristic setting, which gives both properties a lot of synergy. We can only speculate on what the event will entail. But it may have time-limited characters, such as protagonist Motoko Kusanagi, and related items.

Ghost in the Shell is a cyberpunk media franchise that first started in 1989 with the manga's serialization. It has been a influential piece of work even in the Western world. The Wachowskis used some concepts from it in The Matrix, and James Cameron has cited it as a source of inspiration for Avatar.

As mentioned earlier, it takes place in a cyberpunk world. It follows Section 9 Chief Daisuke Aramaki and Major Motoko Kusanagi as they investigate a cyber-criminal that can hack humans with cyberbrains. The Major herself has a cyberbrain, as an accident in her childhood forced her to use a full-body prosthesis. As Girls' Frontline also features female android characters as its protagonists, the two works do have some similarities in setting.

Girls' Frontline is readily available on mobile devices. More information on the Ghost in the Shell event in Girls' Frontline will come out later.
