     Palworld guide, tips and tricks, and how to beat

Need a list of Palworld guides to help you get started? The monster-taming genre might have been popularized on Nintendo handhelds and retro home consoles, but it's enjoyed growing popularity on PC in recent years thanks to the likes of Temtem, Coromon, and Cassette Beasts. Palworld is the latest addition to this beloved niche, and it might be the strangest one yet.

Palworld is, in short, Pokemon with guns. Sure, you can be the very best, like no one ever was – but in this iteration of the creature collector, you can enforce that title with an assault rifle. If that sounds bizarre, wait until you see the assembly lines. If you're ready to get stuck into an RPG that embraces surrealism and satire with all the staple hallmarks of quintessential Pokemon PC games, then be sure to bookmark our comprehensive Palworld guide.

digimon blind box kigurumi figures

Blind box figures of the Digimon Adventure cast wearing Kigurumi that resemble their Digimon partners are now available on Amazon. There are nine potential figures to get, with the ninth one being a secret character. [Thanks, Dengeki Hobby!]

The BN Figure Q figures from Bandai will come out on August 3, 2024. The figures stand at around 80 millimeters tall. Each blind box costs 1870 JPY ($12.10), and you can also buy the entire collection for 14,960 JPY ($96.60).

As for the line-up of characters, each blind box contains one of the eight Chosen Children from the original Digimon Adventure series. The secret character appears to be an alternate version of Taichi, who's wearing an Agumon Kigurumi. He still has his goggles on, so Agumon's fangs are digging into the lenses.

You get a closer look at the figures in the gallery below:

These figures draw on the original designs for the Digimon Adventure cast rather than the Digimon Adventure Tri films. These films take place six years after Digimon Adventure and feature grown-up versions of the original group of kids.

As of the time of writing, the blind boxes are not available for pre-order. There is a chance that they're already out of stock, as pre-orders opened only a day ago, on May 14, 2024.

granblue fantasy sui veight

Cygames announced that Sui and Veight will appear as playable characters in Granblue Fantasy as part of the Falsetto in the Autumn Gray story event re-run. The new Flash Gala has started as well, running from May 15 to 19, 2024.

Sui is a Light SSR unit who can use Scarlet Rope to buff herself and the light ally next to her. This buff lasts five turns, and then after the tenth turn, it gains additional effects. The buff will last longer, and it grants a sharp boost to her ATK and bonus Light DMG. Sui can also restore her allies' HP with Autumn's Watery Reflection and deal Light DMG to an enemy with Cascading Strings. Minami Tsuda voices Sui. Tsuda's previous roles include Salama in Amagi Brilliant Park and Yui Funami in YuruYuri.

Veight will be a Wind SSR unit who can gain multiple beneficial effects as a result of charge diamonds on the enemy and Noble Drops on himself. Veight can also drain enemies' HP, debuff them, and cast shields on wind allies. Scarlet Bead's effect instantly puts the caster and the wind ally next to them in Charge Attack standby. Veight's voice actor is Yuki Kaji. Some of Kaji's more prominent roles include Eren in Attack on Titan and Todoroki in My Hero Academia.

Granblue Fantasy is now available on mobile devices and Windows PC via web browser. Falsetto in the Autumn Gray will run from May 15 to May 22, 2024. To obtain Sui and Veight in Granblue Fantasy, you'll need to pull the Firefly's Light or Camazotz, respectively.

fate/grand order chaldea summer adventure

By popular demand, the Chaldea Summer Adventure event will re-run on the Japanese server of Fate/Grand Order. This summer event gave players the chance to obtain the Ruler version of Leonardo Da Vinci for free.

The Chaldea Summer Adventure re-run will run from May 17, 2024, and it will end on June 7, 2024. As mentioned earlier, this event will allow players to earn lots of rewards, as well as a free SR Servant. Clearing the event will also give access to three summer outfits for male Servants. For this year, players got to get swimsuits for Mandricardo, Achilles, and Blackbeard. This event, like most Fate/Grand Order ones, will involve looping battles and obtaining treasure, which contain goodies like materials for your Servants.

Back in January 2024, Lasengle held a poll in which players could vote for what event they want to see re-run in Fate/Grand Order. Players had the option of choosing any event that ran between 2020 and 2023, and had not gotten a re-run yet. The poll was up for a week and required players to have a valid JP ID to put in their vote.

Fate/Grand Order is readily available on mobile devices. The Chaldea Summer Adventure re-run will only be on the Japanese server of Fate/Grand Order, and it'll run from May 17 to June 7, 2024.

Anycolor Locks Down Nijisanji Subreddit on Reddit

Without any announcement on Reddit or fanfare, Anycolor locked down the subreddit for Nijisanji. As pointed out on the Kurosanji subreddit, which is dedicated to chronicling instances of the company's behavior, the change happened on May 13, 2024. [Thanks, ILiketoMoveItandDie on Reddit!]

If someone who isn't logged into Reddit or joined the subreddit goes to the Hot or New sections of the Nijisanji subreddit, the only posts are official ones like "A glimpse of Nijisanji for the month of May 2024" one. Birthday posts for Vtubers like Hex Haywire and Shu Yamino also appear. It is not possible to comment. If someone searches, other posts such as ones about Scarle Yonaguni's dakimakura and more critical posts also remain as of 3:20pm ET on May 15, 2024. Many posts made between February 2024 and May 2024 were removed.

Anycolor announced Nijisanji would have its own subreddit on Reddit back in December 2020. The official social media accounts and website did not address the sudden scrubbing of the forum. This comes after the Japanese government warned people about a hazardous cocktail recipe two of the company's Vtubers recommended and the graduation of Bonnivier "Bobon" Pranaja.

This comes ahead of Anycolor announcing its latest financial results for Nijisanji. Cover already shared the ones for Hololive back on May 13, 2024. Those are only available in its IR Library in Japanese on its official site.

Here is how to repair tanks and vehicles in Men of War 2. How does vehicle damage work in Men of War 2? While you might feel all-powerful and invincible when you are driving your tank to the enemy lines, the truth is that it can suffer from heavy hits by enemy tanks and even anti-tank weaponry. Contrary to other RTS games, whenever your summoned tank or vehicle is shot at, you will be able to see exactly where the shots were taken and if your vehicle is in critical condition or not. This can be seen at the bottom left corner of the screen next to the mini-map. Depending on where your tank or vehicle was damaged, you might be prevented from firing or moving. Thankfully, the crew inside your tank can do far more than just pull the trigger of your weapons or fire tank shells at the enemy.
