     New Steam roguelike expertly blends turn-based and real-time combat

Every once in a while a roguelike appears out of nowhere and I quickly become obsessed. Right now I have the Future Games Show to thank for my next infatuation, as Enter the Chronosphere got a new trailer at the show and we got to see the turn-based and real-time blend of cosmic horror that lets you play as a twin-stick shooting space bear.

     Attack on Titan Revolution codes June 2024

June 8, 2024 The last few working AOTR codes have no expired. A new one is expected with the upcoming patch.

What are the new Attack on Titan Revolution codes? There are many anime games on Roblox based on One Piece and Dragon Ball, but we rarely get anything focused on the mega-popular Attack on Titan universe. AoT Revolution aims to be a faithful action-packed adventure that takes inspiration from the aerial combat shown on the show.

This Roblox experience is unlike many anime games on the platform in how it plays, but there are certainly some similarities regarding the gacha system. Look at our Anime Last Stand codes, Fruit Seas codes, Blox Fruits codes, and Anime Defenders codes guides to find plenty of free currency and boosts to see if you can get the best characters in those games.

Luckily, Anime Defenders has plenty of anime-inspired fighters to drive them back and save the day, and you can get more of them by using gems at the summoning shop.

Anime Defenders is one of many Roblox experiences with tower defense game mechanics. You can call in help from your favorite anime heroes within those experiences as well, with the help of our Anime Last Stand codes, Tower Defense X codes, and All Star Tower Defense codes, of course. As for Anime Defenders, we've got a bunch of codes to share with you, so be sure to snag the free gems while you can.

     Aura Craft recipes June 2024

June 8, 2024: The Aura Craft team teased something last week via an image search for "340". No updates have dropped since, so we have no new recipes to report.

What are the new Aura Craft recipes? At the beginning of this Roblox game, you only have access to the four basic elements: earth, wind, fire, and water. By combining these elements, along with hidden ones in the game world, you can start building up toward more complex concepts, which in turn give you cooler auras.

If you are familiar with the Infinite Craft recipes, the concept in Aura Craft isn't far off this popular Roblox game. Aura Craft is a new experience, and if you want more cool auras without the guesswork, we have the latest Aura RNG codes and Anime Switch codes for you to use instead.

     Anime Crossover Defense codes June 2024

June 8, 2024: Even with the Taji rework, we're struggling to find new codes for Anime Crossover Defense this week.

What are the new Anime Crossover Defense codes? Like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, anime visuals and tower defense gameplay seem to be a winning combo in Roblox. It's a joy to create a team with all your favorite One Piece, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, and Dragon Ball characters.

     Aura RNG codes June 2024

June 8, 2024: The Angelic update has landed without any new Aura RNG codes dropping alongside it.

What are the newest Aura RNG codes? The main point of Aura RNG is to roll for the coolest effect possible and apply it to your Roblox avatar. You can earn coins by exploring the world and completing quests to buy potions that boost your chances. However, that takes quite a while, especially if you're new and want a fantastic look out of the gate.

That's where these Aura RNG codes come in, as they'll give you free potions that increase your luck. These Roblox games allow you to roll the in-built gacha system without financial commitment. If that thrill appeals to you, you should probably check out our Anime Roulette codes, as that experience has remarkably similar gameplay.

June 8, 2024: Update 2 is supposedly close. Maybe new Fruit Seas codes are right around the corner.

What are the new Fruit Seas codes? Whether you choose to become a pirate to plunder the seven seas or a marine that hunts down boisterous buccaneers, you may want some extra boosts or Beli to help begin your adventure. However, the codes do not last very long whenever they become available, so you'll need to redeem them as soon as you can.

Fruit Seas, formerly known as Demon Piece, is just one of many Roblox experiences that take inspiration from its other anime games. If you want free stuff for them as well, we have all the latest Blox Fruits codes, Anime Champions codes, and Fruit Battlegrounds codes for you to redeem.

     Destiny 2 Salvation's Edge raid guide

How do you complete Destiny 2 Salvation's Edge raid? This tricky raid is stumping even the most experienced raiders. There's no shame in seeking a little helping hand, especially if you want to get it finished within contest mode. We're working our way slowly through it ourselves too, so this guide is a work in progress.

Destiny 2 has long been famed for its raid races, which sees fireteams of six gather together to try to complete the raid on "day one" which recently became two days to encourage Guardians to stay healthy, get rest, and not stick to their desks for 24 hours straight. With the complexity of Salvation's Edge, this one could well take the full 48 hours to finish, even if you've got the best Prismatic build around.

Setting you up as a cop in the '80s, this isometric open-world is perfect as we wait for GTA 6 in 2025 - and it just got a release date that's incredibly soon.

     Pet Catchers codes June 2024

June 8, 2024: Yet another week goes by without new Pet Catchers codes dropping.

What are the newest Pet Catchers codes? Catching cute critters in capsules is the way to go in this creature-collecting simulator. What begins with you gathering rather ordinary creatures, such as dogs and rabbits, quickly evolves into one where you're trying to swipe mythical monsters.

To help you in your endeavor, you can use these Pet Catchers codes to help nab even the rarest and most challenging pets. One or two even give you some unique new friends to join you. As it's a relatively young game, you may run out of stuff to do. However, there are also plenty of other cute animal-based Roblox experiences available. We have plenty of Pet Simulator 99 codes if you want a more established pet-collecting simulator, while there are also the more focused Bee Swarm Simulator codes for those who love buzzing around with cute bumblebee friends.

What are the newest Second Piece codes? We've seen plenty of One Piece-inspired experiences on Roblox, and Second Piece is one of the newest on the market. Your goal is to become king of the pirates, but your journey isn't going to be easy. Powering up in the early game might seem simple at first, but the game becomes much more difficult when you hit the level cap.

There is a silver lining, however. Once you reach the higher levels, you can start entering several Second Piece codes to get free stuff. If you find this Roblox game a bit difficult to start, we also have Fruit Battlegrounds codes and Blox Fruit codes, which are available to everyone from the beginning.

What are the latest Anime Roulette codes? Becoming the character of your dreams is as simple as spinning a wheel and earning a species as a title, forever altering your avatar. So, if you've ever fancied yourself as a Stand user from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, a Super Saiyan from the Dragon Ball series, or a Devil Fruit user from One Piece, this is the Roblox experience for you.

However, brand-new players can reliably earn very few titles in this Roblox game. This is where Anime Roulette codes come in. They give you money to expand your storage and some Super Rolls to roll and potentially win rare in-game titles. If you fancy playing a more active anime experience, we have Anime Last Stand codes, Tower Defense X codes, and Blox Fruits codes for a whole bunch of freebies.

The chaotic, gruesome, and fascist parody aspects of Arrowhead's smash hit didn't just come out of nowhere though. The Robert A. Heinlein novel, and later 1997 film, are a clear inspiration for the galactic war against bugs - and now the PvE shooter that preceded Helldivers 2, Starship Troopers Extermination, is finally coming to Steam 1.0.

Sand Land Tank 104 Model Kit Looks Really Good With Little Effort

Sometimes, you can pick up a model kit and realize it's going to be a big investment. You'll need to pick up paints. Maybe glue is needed. Magnifying glasses too, if the characters involves need painting and are extra tiny. The Sand Land Tank 104 model kit from Bandai Namco's Bandai Spirits line happens to fall into that sweet spot where it really isn't too much trouble to build and looks great out of the box, but still could look even better if you do also pick up the paints for its teeny figures of Beelzebub, Thief, and Lao. 

So to start, the Sand Land Tank 104 model kit is one of the more expensive ones, as its retail price is $69. However, given the nature of it, you can get into it out of the box and not invest in anything else like glue or paints unless you really want to. I would recommend having a tools kit on hand, like the $7.99 BXQINLENX one with nippers, tweezers, and a file, just because there are small stickers that benefit from the tweezers and a few tiny parts that are easier to free from sprues with the nippers. However, you don't need glue, and as you'll see in the pictures from my build, it looks fine without any paints. However, if you do want to go with paints too, the instructions offers pointers at the bottom of each page for effects and Bandai Namco noted colors you'd need.

Now, because this is a Bandai Spirits kit, there are some great niceties going into it. All of the plastic is colored, so if you don't paint, you're still fine. Certain sprues are multicolor, like the A one here. Also, at each step the instructions tell you exactly which sprues you'll need to have on-hand. I also noticed that in some cases it seemed like they were bagged up together as well, which was especially appreciated during the assembly process. Both stickers and waterslide decals are present for some of the accents, like the Sand Land Tank 104 eyes and numbers for the doors. However, I really liked the quality and feel of the Sand Land logo stickers for the base. It made it pop more. (As a building note, I recommend using tweezers for that part to ensure proper placement in the sign.) 

As for the rest of the build, I feel like the Sand Land Tank 104 model kit is a perfect example of getting a final product that looks more complicated than it was to actually construct. The tank treads are made up of seven tread parts placed in a specific order, so that it makes solid pieces of plastic look far more flexible. The tank body is broken down based on the rotating artillery on top, base with treads, interior cockpit with miniature figures of Beelzebub, Thief, and Lao, and exterior walls of the tank. It makes things more manageable, and the ensuing steps to piece everything together easier. Honestly, the only parts that were truly "hard" for me involved pressing in some of the controls near Beelzebub. That was only because they were delicate, and I didn't want to press too hard to "force" them into place.

I do wish that perhaps there had been some additional stickers or waterslide decals for Beelzebub, Thief, and Lao in the Sand Land Tank 104 model kit. Some of their facial features are incredibly small. Even if I had purchased paints or pens to properly capture expressions, I don't think my hands would have been steady enough to properly render their features. I'd have been willing to pay an extra $5 for a sheet. Or, conversely, have the price of the kit be $10-15 more to only include a single Beelzebub with a finished face plate in the box. 

As you can see from my firsthand photos, I chose to go with the as-is portrayal of the Sand Land Tank 104 model kit. I'm pleased with it! It looks fantastic, and the moveable turret, artillery door, and side doors are nice touches. Now that I've taken photos, I am tempted to remove the Beelzebub, Thief, and Lao, since it does feel like those would only be a really good addition when painted. But it's still a fun kit that's easy to build over the course of under two hours, and it looks great once its down.

The Sand Land Tank 104 model kit is available now worldwide. The anime is on Disney+. Viz Media handles the manga outside Japan. The game is on the PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X, and PC

star rail march 7th

More information has come out for the new version of March 7th in Honkai: Star Rail. She'll be a four-star Imaginary Hunt character.

This version of March 7th is wearing a Xianzhou-inspired outfit and she wields twin blades. She learned how to use the weapons from Yunli and Yanqing, who are both young sword prodigies from their respective Xianzhou ships. In order to unlock this new path for March 7th, you'll need to participate in the Honkai: Star Rail Version 2.3 flagship event. This implies that, unlike how Dan Heng has a separate five-star Imbibitor Lunae unit, this is closer to how you can swap paths for Trailblazer.

HoYoVerse first revealed this alternate form of March 7th during the Summer Game Fest 2024. While most of the trailer focused on Firefly and the Trailblazer, she made a surprise appearance close to the end of the trailer. As information on her didn't appear in the special program (which detailed kits for Jade and Firefly), we will have to wait a bit closer to the release date of 2.3 to know how she'll play.

Honkai: Star Rail is readily available on the PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. Version 2.3 of Honkai: Star Rail will launch on June 19, 2024.

Aqua and Akane's Growth Propel Oshi no Ko Manga Volume 6

There have been Oshi no Ko moments and manga volumes that make it absolutely feel like Aqua and Akane are getting moments to shine. However, this has never been more clear with the sixth volume. Now that the Tokyo Blade stage play is in full-swing, we're also getting major reveals and development between the two leads.

Editor's Note: There are spoilers for previous volumes up to and story beats from Oshi no Ko volume 6.

This Tokyo Blade arc in the Oshi no Ko manga brings together a number of major and minor characters, however on opposing sides. So Kana Arima and Melt Narushima are among the "heroes," while Aqua Hoshino and fake girlfriend Akane Kurokawa are the major villains. This also involves an actual rivalry behind the scenes. However, we've only really seen Kana's side of things until now. Past volumes looked at her past as a child star and why she sees Akane as such competition. (She's popular and is dating Aqua.) Now, we're seeing things from the other side.

Initially, the focus is on some development between Aqua and Akane that is tied to their "relationship" in Oshi no Ko. We see him let her in on exactly why he's trying to succeed in show business. (He wants to get revenge on his mother Ai's killer.) She then agrees to not only support him, but aid his cause. She brings up her reasoning why, and also suggests that as her "boyfriend" he should also assist with her goal of besting Kana.

This leads to opportunities to see both characters' growth, as well as insights into who they are and what drives them. Aqua is dealing with PTSD both from his past and present life. As such, it makes tapping into and dealing with emotions difficult. However, to assist Akane and make the stage play a success, he'll need to do so. So we see his determination to overcome things for the sake of his personal goals.

Meanwhile, with Akane we're getting a chance to see how her past encounters with Kana shaped her present in Oshi no Ko. We see how admiration and her own drive influenced her goals. There are also shades of "never meet your heroes" here, which is especially fun given the execution of the manga. After all, we've been exposed to Kana more often up until this point and seen her viewpoint. Now we're seeing Akane and her encounters with Kana, and Kana ends up being an antagonist in that story. We're able to appreciate her desire to overcome, which makes the course of this volume feel like it really pays off.

This also means this volume of the Oshi no Ko manga is again doing a great job of setting up the future actions of characters like Akane and Aqua, while teasing major updates in their career. Akane's goal is to surpass Kana's performance in Tokyo Blade. The volume leaves off right as we're about to see if that's possible. (And not knowing who to root for, since both are sympathetic leads.) Aqua's goal is to get closer to Ai's killer, and Tokyo Blade's success and Akane's help could assist with that. It continues to develop wonderfully.

Volume 6 of Oshi no Ko is available now, and Yen Press will release volume 7 of the manga on August 20, 2024. The anime is streaming on HIDIVE.

See the Street Fighter 6 M Bison Gameplay Footage

Just a month after the debut of Akuma and end of the Year 1 Character Pass, Street Fighter 6 gameplay for M Bison appeared. He's the first Year 2 Character Pass DLC launching on June 26, 2024, and his first trailer is now live.

The M Bison Street Fighter 6 gameplay trailer begins with him riding in on a horse. After someone takes a picture of him, he asks, "Do I resemble this man you call Bison? I shall take that name for myself." We then get to see him fight Juri in a stage that looks like a ruined laboratory. It begins with his new look, but at the 1:20 mark he appears in his classic uniform.

Here's the full M Bison Street Fighter 6 gameplay trailer:


In addition, the official social media account for Street Fighter showed some concept art. It highlighted Vega, aka M Bison, paying particular attention to his face, gloves, and boots. His character page is also live on the official site, though it doesn't show his command list, frame data, or costumes yet.


We already know who will join M Bison in the Year 2 Character Pass. Fellow Street Fighter cast member Elena will return. So will Fatal Fury and KOF staples Terry Bogard and Mai Shiranui.

     Best Damage Characters tier list in Star Wars Hunters, rankedThere are many challenges and missions to unlock and complete in Star Wars Hunters, some being more challenging than others. One of these mission types is to earn hunter elimination streaks, which can be understood in different ways. What are hunter elimination streaks in Star Wars Hunters? Hunter elimination streaks may confuse come Star Wars Hunters players as this could be taken in a couple different ways. So to clear things up – you will earn a hunter elimination streak by killing other players without dying. So if you are required to earn a hunter elimination streak of 5, that means you must eliminate five other hunters (players) without being killed. Every time you get eliminated, the streak resets.
