    • There are a lot of ways to make money in Disney Dreamlight Valley, including fishing for some rare catches, mining for gems, or just selling all of the random materials you collect as you explore each biome doing your daily tasks. However, one of the best methods of filling your coffers quickly is making a specific dish using a specific crop and then selling it to Goofy at one of his stalls. In this guide, we'll tell you how to make it happen and why it's such a great method for money-making. How to make money fast selling pumpkin-filled Grilled Veggie Platters Planting and harvesting pumpkins has long been a popular money-making method for Dreamlight Valley players, but with just a bit of extra work, you can increase your profits by quite a bit. All you have to do is head to a stove and use three pumpkins to make a Grilled Veggie Platter. Plant a bunch of pumpkin seeds (200-500 is ideal), which you can purchase in Forgotten Lands. Wait four hours for them to grow, then harvest them using one of your gardening companions to ensure you get extra pumpkins as you're picking. Before you head off to cook them into Grilled Veggie Platters, go ahead and replant more seeds so that they can get started growing while you're cooking and doing other errands. While it's true that any three vegetables combined meet the recipe needs for a Grilled Veggie Platter, pumpkins have the highest selling price of all vegetables at 664 coins each, so they will also drastically increase the selling price of a platter (and other dishes, too). Let's do some math. The selling price of 3 pumpkins: 1,992 coins The selling price of a Grilled Veggie Platter made using those 3 pumpkins: 2,782 coins Make easy money by cooking Grilled Veggie Platters with pumpkins.As you can see, selling massive stacks of pumpkins by themselves bring in quite a haul, but you can obviously make almost 30% more money by cooking them into Grilled Veggie Platters before selling them. Whether you want to take that extra time out of your day for the increased selling price is entirely up to you, of course. Either way, pumpkins are clearly a great choice to help you with your Dreamlight Valley retirement plans. For everything else there is to see and do in Dreamlight Valley, check out our many guides on the hit game. View the full article
    • The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition is out on December 14 as a free upgrade, and we had the opportunity to play it for a few hours. The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S upgrade of CD Projekt Red's beloved open-world RPG features several visual improvements, a photo mode, and a new quest. This new quest is the most notable inclusion and, even if you don't plan on replaying The Witcher 3 in its entirety anytime soon, I highly recommend revisiting The Northern Realms just for this. Thankfully, all your saves will carry over, and it introduces cross-save. The quest itself features new characters, Henry Cavill's armor from the Netflix show, a new monster to fight, and a new-ish location. I won't say too much in order to preserve the surprise, but it fits nicely within the context of The Witcher 3 and expands on an area that felt underutilized in the original release. At the very least, it's nice hearing Doug Cockle reprise his role as the White Wolf, even if the quest itself is brief. The meat of the Complete Edition is the visual and performance enhancements. On PS5 and Xbox Series X, there is a performance toggle. One favors the visuals with some subtle ray tracing added, while the other favors performance. During my time with the game, I preferred performance mode. The ray-traced visuals add some extra warmth and detail to interior environments, but it wasn't worth sacrificing the high frame rate available in performance mode. No matter which graphics setting you choose, the game looks noticeably better than the original versions. This became abundantly clear when I started messing around with the new photo mode. It's not as robust as other photo modes, even when compared to Cyberpunk 2077, but I don't think it needs to be. Instead of goofy poses and facial expressions, the real star of photo mode will unequivocally be all the stunning vistas. For a significant portion of my demo I traveled all around the world just to take advantage of interesting photo opportunities. CD Projekt Red has also baked in some popular fan-made mods to round out the visuals. These include World Map Fixes by Terg500, Nitpickers Patch by chuckcash, The Witcher 3 HD Reworked Project by HalkHogan, FCR3 - Immersion and Gameplay Tweaks by Andrzej Kwiatkowski (now a CD Projekt Red developer), and HDMR - HD Monsters Reworked Mod by Denroth. The Nitpickers mod in particular is a nice inclusion because it fixes some small graphical inconsistencies that nitpickers like me might notice, such as Geralt’s sword clipping through the sides of boats. This update also brings with it a few tweaks to the gameplay. My favorite one is the new camera angles. CD Projekt Red has added an alternate camera angle that's much closer to Geralt for exploration, combat, and horseback riding. You can mix and match different angles, and the camera will automatically adjust as you transition between these three activities. When I inevitably replay The Witcher 3, I plan on using these new angles exclusively. During combat, I felt much closer to the action, and while exploring, I felt like I could fully appreciate all the tiny details. The new camera angles may not be as functional in all scenarios due to how they limit your field of view, but they feel much more cinematic. Gallery The other major tweak to the gameplay is quick sign-casting. Instead of switching signs, or spells, with a radial menu, you can hold down R2 or right trigger and press a face button that corresponds with a specific sign. The purpose of this is to give you easy access to all of Geralt's signs without having to slow down combat. It seems like a handy feature, but after multiple playthroughs of The Witcher 3, I found it difficult to wrap my head around. My feelings could change once I spend some more time with The Complete Edition, but the radial menu felt more comfortable during my demo. While none of these tweaks and additions fundamentally change The Witcher 3, they do make one of the best games of the last decade even better. If you've never played The Witcher 3, The Complete Edition is the perfect opportunity to jump in. If you've already played The Witcher 3, I'd still encourage you to check out this update when it drops later this month. The new quest is well worth your time, and the new photo mode makes it fun to revisit some of The Witcher 3's most iconic locations. View the full article
    • During the last Project L update back in August, executive producer Tom Cannon said there would be one more update for the upcoming fighter from Riot Games before the end of 2022. That update has arrived in the form of a six-minute dev diary highlighting core gameplay mechanics, tag options, and brand-new gameplay. Cannon and game director Shaun Rivera are the featured devs in this video, with Rivera walking through multiple core mechanics that make up the fighting system of Project L. Both offensive and defensive mechanics are shown, including air mobility options like double and super jumps. Rivera then explains the tag system, where he specifically calls out three important tag features: Assist Actions, which function like the assists from previous tag fighters like Marvel vs. Capcom. Every character will have two assist options, and the button can be held to make the assist a charge attack. Handshake Tag, which allows a player to switch between characters while both are on screen at the same time, such as right after a successful assist attack. Dynamic Save, which Rivera refers to as the game's "combo breaker," consists of a burst counter where a partner comes in and helps their teammate on-screen. Dynamic Saves can be countered, however, so they must be used wisely. Multiple champions were shown in real-time gameplay during the video, including Ahri, Jinx, Darius, and Ekko. Illaoi, who was confirmed as playable during the August update, was also shown, but according to Cannon she is only "about 30% complete." Project L is a free-to-play fighting game scheduled to release in 2023, though Riot Games has not yet revealed which consoles it will launch for as of this writing. The game is a 2v2 tag-based fighting game with a roster made up of champions from League of Legends. View the full article
    • BioWare has released a new trailer for Dragon Age: Dreadwolf, and while it doesn't include any gameplay, it does dig into more of the backstory and motivations of Solas, the Dreadwolf. The cinematic, which is a work-in-progress, is narrated by the Dragon Age II companion Varric Tethras. BioWare released the trailer as "a little treat" to celebrate Dragon Age Day--December 4. The developer also noted that this trailer would be how BioWare plans to "close out" 2022, which could suggest the title won't make an appearance during The Game Awards this week, though nothing is confirmed yet. 2022 has already been a big year for Dreadwolf, as BioWare announced in February that the game had officially entered the production phase of development. In June, BioWare announced the game's name, Dreadwolf, and in October, BioWare confirmed that the game reached Alpha and was playable from start to finish. Also to celebrate Dragon Age Day, BioWare shared a few new posters for the upcoming Dragon Age animated Netflix series, Dragon Age: Absolution, which releases on December 9. Gallery Additionally, BioWare and Maxis teamed up to create new Dragon Age-themed wearable items for free in The Sims 4. You can read BioWare's blog post to learn more about how the studio celebrated Dragon Age Day. View the full article
    • The Dalmatian is a breed of dog, which has a white coat marked with black or brown-colored spots. Originating as a hunting dog, it was also used as a carriage dog in its early days. The origins of this breed can be traced back to present-day Croatia and its historical region of Dalmatia.Dalmatians are one of the best breeds in the world.Dalmatians are one of the best companion dogs in the world. Provided they’re well-socialized by the dalmatian breeders, Dalmatians should have no problem getting along with other pooches. They don’t tend to have an aggressive streak, so lots of positive experiences with other mutts early on will allow them to develop their friendly personality.They should get along fine with other pets in the house. Reputable centers will run home checks, neuter dogs and inform you of any possible health or behavioral issues following assessments and I think this is where https://dalmatianpuppyplace.com ,stands out from all other dalmatian breeders who have dalmatian puppies for sale.If you think a distinctive appearance, energetic personality and unwavering loyalty make for a great canine pet, a Dalmatian could be the perfect dog breed for your family. The Dalmatian is an old breed, so old, in fact, that no one knows for sure where or when the Dalmatian's distinctive spots first developed. We do know that Dalmatians are valuable working dogs. They have a long association with firefighting, but before that, they were popular carriage dogs. They'd run alongside the carriages of wealthy English lords, calming the horses and standing guard. Back when fire trucks were horse powered, hiring a few Dalmatians to help control and relax horses reluctant to approach burning buildings must have seemed like a perfect pairing of brains and brawn. It didn't hurt that Dalmatians have a great deal of stamina and are powerful, agile runners in their own right.It is thought that early ancestors of the breed were certain breeds of pointers and a spotted Great Dane. Today, it is a popular family pet and many dog enthusiasts enter Dalmatians into kennel club competitions.  
    • Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 might see a return of Rebirth Island and the popular Resurgence game-mode in the coming weeks. A map posted on a popular Call of Duty Facebook group has suggested that a small island off the coast of Al Mazrah will be the next location for Warzone 2.0. The leak claims that this new map will be compatible with Ground War, DMZ, and the returning Resurgence mode. It also includes a number of named locations, including a beach club, town center, and even a castle. As a whole, the map looks less professional than some leaks that have appeared over the years. In the above-linked thread, some users question its legitimacy on these grounds. However, Insider Gaming notes that Activision Blizzard has issued DMCA notices in an apparent attempt to contain the leaks, which leads credence to the claims. At least one Call of Duty leaker claimed that Resurgence would be coming back to the game in 2023, though that may just be a lucky guess. Considering that Resurgence was Warzone's most popular mode for months, it shouldn't really surprise anyone that the mode would make a return at some point. A recent patch for Warzone 2.0 fixed crashes and FPS drops. Another leak suggests that DMZ is getting a Metal Gear Solid 5-style extraction balloon. View the full article
    • Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, the sequel to 2019's action-adventure game from Respawn, will be released in March 2023, according to the game's Steam page first spotted by Resetera. Some people are seeing a March 15 release date and others are seeing a March 16 date on the page. The Steam page remains live at the time of publishing. According to a previous report, Jedi: Survivor's release date is scheduled to be officially announced during The Game Awards this week. A new trailer for the game will be shown at the event, too, the report said. If Jedi: Survivor doesn't sound like your cup of tea, Disney is reportedly planning to launch a new Star Wars title every six months, so another title might not be far behind. Jedi: Survivor is set five years after the events of 2019's Fallen Order. Players take on the role of Cal Kestis as he "continues to feel the weight of being one of the last remaining Jedi in the galaxy." The game is developed by Apex Legends studio Respawn Entertainment and is being developed for current-generation hardware, so it's not expected to launch on PS4 and Xbox One. Jedi: Survivor has big shoes to fill, as Jedi: Fallen Order reached 20 million players across all consoles, platforms, and subscription services as of June 2021. The Game Awards are scheduled for Thursday, December 8, beginning at 4:30 PM PT / 7:30 PM ET. For more, check out GameSpot's guide to everything you need to know about The Game Awards.

    • Geoff Keighley has confirmed that The Game Awards 2022 will be much shorter than last year's showcase. During a recent Twitter Spaces talk--via Resetera--Keighley discussed the upcoming ceremony, which is set to air on December 8, and answered some questions about what to expect. The Game Awards is usually filled with not only award presentations, but interviews with developers and trailers for brand-new games. This usually results in a lengthy broadcast, considering there are also ads aired throughout, but Keighley has said it will be shorter this year. "I won't say anything officially until we're through our rehearsals but we think it's going to be significantly shorter," he said. Last year's pre-show lasted around 30 minutes while the main event went on for 3 hours, so those tuning in can expect this to be significantly reduced. The Game Awards founder added that alongside the runtime being scaled down, it will be cutting back on games as well, saying, "We definitely have cut back pretty significantly in terms of the runtime on the show and just you know kind of fewer games fewer bigger games that'll be in there and you know people always debate about 'Are they presenting enough awards? Are there too many world premiers?" However, those tuning in can still expect "some really great announcements" despite the shorter runtime and there will be some "amazing studios" participating this year. "There are some games that I've been hoping and wanting to show for a number of years that are finally ready this year to up to showcase to folks at the game awards so we're very very happy with how that's coming together," he said. A number of guest appearances have already been confirmed for this year, including HBO's The Last Of Us stars Pedro Pascal and Bella Ramsey, alongside the original voice actors from the game Troy Baker and Ashley Johnson. If you're looking to tune in to this year's event, here's everything you need to know about The Game Awards 2022, including how to watch, start times, and more. View the full article
    • Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki has said he doesn't want to get distracted by the game's overwhelming success when it comes to making his next project. Last week, Elden Ring was awarded two PlayStation Partner Awards, including the Grand Award for the best-selling game developed in Asia and the Users' Choice award. Miyazaki reacted to the awards in an interview with Famitsu--translated by VGC--and was particularly honored by the Users' Choice award as the game was directly chosen by players, but he doesn't want the game's success to distract him from focusing on his next game. “I’m at a loss when people ask me why [it’s been so successful], but my feeling is that I don’t intend to change the way I’ve been making things in the future,” Miyazaki said. “I try not to think about it too much, because it could become a distraction when I make the next project. However, I am very grateful and feel honored.” Miyazaki also explained that he personally tries "not to look directly at user feedback" because "I can't listen to all the users' opinions." "I’m afraid that if I do, the voices and opinions I happen to hear will have a strong influence on my future decisions, so I’m careful not to put other opinions directly into my own mind. However, when I do look at the reactions, there are many people who first played the same genre with Elden Ring. It makes me nostalgic when I hear them. “I remember feeling really happy when I experienced Demon’s Souls for the first time. It’s an exciting title to discover, and we’ve had an increase in new users. I was personally happy to hear that kind of feedback,” he said. Last month it was reported that the latest From Software title, which launched earlier this year, has now sold 17.5 million copies, outselling Dark Souls III and Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice combined.

    • It's Monday and that can only mean one thing: We're back for another week of Wordle guides. After a long weekend, it's time to get back into the swing of things, and we're here to make sure you do that by getting the Wordle correct. Today's answer doesn't do players any favors, as it's definitely not a word that many users will think of quickly. If you haven't started the December 5 Wordle just yet, then you can check out our list of recommended starting words. However, if you're already past the starting point and visiting this article, then you might be in need of some help. That's where we can come in. Below, players will find two tips for today's Wordle. We've also spelled out the full answer for players who might not find the hints helpful enough. Today's Wordle Answer - December 5, 2022 We'll begin with a couple of hints that directly relate to the answer, but won't give it away. Hint 1: This word can be defined as someone or something quickly emerging from sleep. This word commonly has an "a" attached to the beginning of it. Hint 2: This word has two vowels, both of which are in the middle of the word. The vowels are not repeating. The word begins with "w." If those hints weren't enough to get the ball rolling for you, then you can keep reading for the full answer to the December 5 Wordle. The full answer is... "woken." I can probably count the times I've used "woken" on one hand. "Awoken," maybe, but woken isn't a word in my everyday vocabulary. Hopefully, every player was able to guess the answer correctly and continue their streak. Check back tomorrow for another edition of our Wordle guides. View the full article
