    • Last summer, horror game The Sinking City was delisted from several stores, including Steam, as developer Frogwares disputed unpaid royalties as well as publishers Bigben and Nacon allegedly demanding it hand over the source code. The game is back on Steam now, but Frogwares says it didn't make the current version and urged players not to buy it. Writing on its official Twitter account, Frogwares said it doesn't "recommend the purchase of this version" and promised that more news would be coming soon. The game is still for sale on the Xbox and PlayStation digital stores, but while its original licensing agreement also included selling the game via the Epic Games Store, it's no longer listed there.

    • Playing Valheim with friends is the premier way to enjoy the viking survival game. To do that, you'll need to either create servers in the game so other players can join you, or join them in their servers. Valheim's menus can be a bit confusing to navigate, though, especially if you don't really know much about local hosting or dedicated servers. And even joining games can be a little wonky, requiring you to use Steam's menus to find servers using IP addresses. Check out the guide below for everything you need to know to set up your own servers or join someone else's in Valheim. It's also worth noting that if you're looking for new co-op viking friends, you can check the Community server list and join in with other people you don't know--although you should do so at your own risk, since you never know if your new friends might turn out to be griefers. It's also good practice to check for Discord servers to go with your Valheim servers so you can talk to other players. We've got even more Valheim coverage so be sure to check out our guides for upgrading your Workbench, crafting armor, hunting down Iron, and beating The Elder.

    • The Workbench in Valheim is more like your crafting workhorse. It's the first crafting table you'll build when you start to establish your viking base, and it remains essential all the way through the game, allowing you to craft key items like arrows and to construct buildings even after you've moved on to higher-level materials. The Workbench is one of the first things you'll craft, but upgrading it will take some work--and unlock some key items you'll need along the way. Here's everything you need to know to get your Workbench going, including some requirements that might not be obvious right away, what it'll cost to make, and what benefits it'll give you as you explore Valheim. We've got even more Valheim coverage so be sure to check out our guides for crafting armor, hunting down Iron, and beating The Elder. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Sanrio-inspired villagers and items are coming to Animal Crossing: New Horizons in the game's March update. Following the update, you'll be able to invite new villagers and order items themed after Hello Kitty, My Melody, Cinnamoroll, and other Sanrio characters by scanning the Animal Crossing Sanrio Amiibo cards. Just as in Animal Crossing: New Leaf, there are six Sanrio-inspired villagers in total, one for each of the cards in the Sanrio Amiibo pack. The full list of villagers and the Sanrio character they're themed after is as follows: Hello Kitty - Rilla (gorilla) Pompompurin - Marty (cub) Kiki & Lala - Étoile (sheep) Cinnamoroll - Chai (elephant) My Melody - Chelsea (deer) Kerokerokeroppi - Toby (rabbit) You'll also be able to order various furniture and clothing items based on the Sanrio characters, such as a Cinnamoroll couch and a Hello Kitty rug. These items and villagers will all be introduced to the game in the 1.9.0 update, which is slated to release on March 18. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • The Pokemon Company recently revealed a brand-new Pokemon game, Pokemon Legends: Arceus, coming to Nintendo Switch in early 2022. As part of that reveal, we got to see the game's three starter Pokemon, all of which hail from different regions--Cyndaquil from Gen 2's Johto, Rowlet from Gen 7's Alola, and Oshawott from Gen 5's Unova. At first glance, these three Pokemon look like completely random picks, and no core Pokemon game thus far has ever combined starter Pokemon from previous generations in this way. However, Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set far in the Sinnoh region's past, and the style of the reveal trailer lends the game a very feudal Japan feel--think shogunates and samurai. The Sinnoh region is based on Hokkaido, the northernmost island of Japan, which came under feudal rule during this era of history. So how do Cyndaquil, Rowlet, and Oshawott fit into that theme? Oshawott is the most obvious: Its final evolution is Samurott, a portmanteau of samurai and otter, and the armor on Samurott's legs is reminiscent of samurai armor. That's as natural a fit for the setting as you can get. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Along with the reveal of Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade's story content and PS5 upgrade, Tetsuya Nomura gave some updates to the development process of FF7 Remake's future. In a translated interview by Famitsu (provided to us by Square Enix), Nomura explained that he's transitioning away from being the co-director of the project, and that Naoki Hamaguchi will now be the sole director moving forward. However, Nomura mentioned that not much will change for him. When asked about his role as a director and concept designer for the multiple projects in the works, Nomura prefaced, "There have been three Final Fantasy 7-related games announced, but as I mentioned before, I have more projects on my plate at the moment than ever before." He then explained that the foundation has already been established and that he can pass on the role, saying, "For Remake, the core gameplay direction has now been worked out and we can see the points that need improving, so I will hand over directorship to Mr. Hamaguchi (co-director on FF7 Remake) for the next game and continue to be involved in all FF7-related projects, such as the remakes and mobile games, as overall creative director." If you're wondering how this might affect future entries of FF7 Remake, this move may not make that much of an impact; Nomura stated, "The way I am involved in the development work will basically not change, though."

    • Bravely Default 2 may look like your standard turn-based RPG, but there is a lot more going on under the hood. If you've never played a Bravely Default game, then this new game can actually be kind of tough. So, we've compiled eight tips to help you navigate the world and give you the edge in combat. If you're more curious about how the game stacks up, be sure to read our Bravely Default 2 review. Otherwise, read on for some essential tips! Bravely Defaulting: Finding A Balance Success is about finding a balance between braving and defaulting.Bravely Default's core combat mechanics are braving and defaulting, as the title of the game implies. "Braving" allows a character to attack multiple times in a row, while "defaulting" is a defensive maneuver that stores an action point. The catch is that your characters can only attack if they have 0 or at least one free "brave point" or BP. So, if you go "full brave" at the beginning of a battle, they will go into turn-debt, meaning they can't perform any actions for the next few turns. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • A new Max Raid event is now live in Pokemon Sword and Shield. As part of the Pokemon series' 25th anniversary festivities, Gigantamax Pikachu is appearing in Max Raid battles again until February 28, and you'll have a chance to encounter a Shiny Gigantamax Pikachu in five-star Raids. As was the case with the recent Cramorant Max Raid event, the overarching goal of this particular event is to defeat more than 1 million Pikachu. If players can hit that goal, The Pokemon Company will give away 100 Armorite Ore and 100 Dynite Ore, which are used as currency for certain items and services in the Isle of Armor and the Crown Tundra areas. The Gigantamax Pikachu Max Raid event runs until 3:59 PM PT / 6:59 PM ET on February 28. Before you can participate, you'll first need to refresh your Max Raid dens. You can do so either by connecting your game online or by going into the Mystery Gift menu and selecting Get the Wild Area News. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
    • Developer Treyarch has dropped a new update for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone that kicks off the double XP weekend event. Alongside the event, the update also addresses some issues with two of the game's maps. The full patch notes are outlined below. The headliner of the latest patch is the kick-off of a double XP weekend event. From now until March 1, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Warzone players can earn double XP and double weapon XP. This event coincides with Season Two's launch, which has officially begun. Elsewhere in the update are adjustments to two maps. On Raid, players can no longer stand outside of the intended play zones around the basketball court. Checkmate, meanwhile, has been fixed so that players can't capture the P3 Hardpoint zone outside of its boundary. Continue Reading at GameSpotView the full article
