Master Detective Archives: Rain Code Map Will Be Larger Than Tokyo

Master Detective Archives Rain Code Map

According to an upcoming interview to be published in Famitsu and spotted by Japanese tipster ryokutya2089, Master Detective Archives: Rain Code scenario writer Kazutaka Kodaka reveals that the game's map will be larger than the 23 wards of Tokyo combined. Additionally, Kodaka also spoke briefly about the game's content, including subquests and other events. Notably, Kodaka also states that there is a "big surprise" in store, but that it is still in development. [Thanks, ryokutya!]

In an interview with Famitsu Weekly, Kodaka states that the area in which the game takes place is "larger than the 23 wards of Tokyo". Known as Kanai Ward, players will explore this 3D world during their investigations as trainee detective Yuma. Furthermore, he states that there will be plenty of things for players to do, including meet-up events with other detectives, subquests, and more.

The map's sheer scale may explain why Rain Code has been in development for over six years. To this, Kodaka clarifies that the developers have been working "non-stop" during that time period. He also notes that one of the key issues in the investigative genre was the repetitiveness of investigation methods. As such, Kodaka states that they designed the game so that each case should allow players to enjoy a different way of investigation. To top it off, Kodaka goes on to note that the studio is also planning a "big surprise"

Gotham Knights has more than a Batman problem

36 minutes 5 seconds ago

In Gotham Knights, Batman is dead. "Like, dead-dead," as WB Montreal put it during our preview, and in his place comes four sub-heroes: Robin, Batgirl, Nightwing and Red Hood. These are, barring any surprises, who you will play as in Gotham Knights. I played as three of them in the preview - Batgirl and Red Hood in early game scenarios, and Robin for a late-game mission and boss fight - and I can now say with confidence that they are… fine.

It's faint praise, and I'm loath to be too harsh on Gotham Knights when we're still a few weeks away from launch. But at the moment it's underwhelming, and underwhelming in terms of real substance, rather than technical performance - it looks nice enough and ran without any hiccups while we played over streaming platform Parsec.

What's missing is a sense of conviction. The setup sees you making a base of the Belfrey, a clock tower hideout that'll be familiar to series fans, where you can mooch about and briefly chat with the other characters, swap between them, and launch missions or an exploration of the open world of Gotham City. Gotham looks quite good, but also a little muted next to the Gotham of Rocksteady's Arkham games - especially Arkham Knight - where that glorious, gothic maximalism is replaced with more of a mediumalism. The city's deep blacks seem more like faded browns, the rain doesn't fall as hard, there's no sense of sharpness, rankness, no distinctive air of criminal filth and grime, and with a kind of unnerving clarity to it all, like an old game that's been visually "remastered" by an AI, its atmosphere lost without its textured fog.

Platinum Games Confirms Jennifer Hale As The New Voice Of Bayonetta

1 hour ago

Bayonetta 3 is Game Informer's next cover story, and during our interviews with Platinum Games we asked if the months-long rumor that Bayonetta's English voice actor in the first two games, Hellena Taylor, was stepping away from the role in the upcoming entry. Taylor cryptically hinted to fans last September that she may not return in Bayonetta 3, saying she wasn't "at liberty" to elaborate further when fans pressed the issue. Platinum confirmed to us that Taylor does not reprise the role. Instead, the Umbra Witch is brought to life by veteran performer Jennifer Hale.

“Various overlapping circumstances made it difficult for Hellena Taylor to reprise her role,” says game director Yusuke Miyata. “We held auditions to cast the new voice of Bayonetta and offered the role to Jennifer Hale, whom we felt was a good match for the character. I understand the concerns some fans have about the voice change at this point in the series, but Jennifer’s performance was way beyond what we could have imagined. I’m confident that her portrayal of Bayonetta will exceed our fans’ expectations.”

Hale is a prolific voice actress with numerous video game credits. She's perhaps best known as the voice of female Commander Shepard in Mass Effect, but her roles include Samus Aran in the Metroid series, Naomi Hunter in the Metal Gear Solid franchise, Ashe in Overwatch, and Rivet in Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart.

FGO Saint Quartz Prices Rise in Some Countries

1 hour 35 minutes ago

FGO Saint Quartz

Rolling on Fate/Grand Order's gacha is about to get more expensive in some countries. In an update on the official website and in-game news, Aniplex announced that due to an Apple-mandated change in the App Store's Price Tier system, the prices of Saint Quartz premium currency will rise in various countries and regions. The FGO Saint Quartz price changes go into effect alongside scheduled maintenance on October 5, 2022, at 8:00 AM PT (11:00 AM ET). Saint Quartz is mainly used to roll on FGO's gacha banners. Players can usually earn a small amount of Saint Quartz from daily activities and logins

The countries affected by the App Store Price Tier changes are Chile, Poland, Sweden, and all countries that use the Euro. Countries that buy Saint Quartz in US dollars will be unaffected. The FGO Saint Quartz price changes for each country are detailed in the news post, but the bumps range from about 15-20% for each package of Saint Quartz.

Sony Is Looking For Remakes In All the Wrong Places

2 hours 6 minutes ago

Ahh, video game remakes. We live in an era where they feel inevitable. To many players, nothing lasts forever, and as time passes, what was once seen as revolutionary becomes lost when other games come along and refine what the originals innovated. As such, perhaps the best way to counter that is to take an old game and remake it with modern sensibilities so that a new generation can appreciate it as much as older players do.

There are plenty of remakes to look forward to in the future: Resident Evil 4 will receive a new version that should fix the original’s dated tank controls, and Dead Space will be introduced to a legion of players who never experienced the game in the first place. Sony, on the other hand, doesn’t seem to understand the kinds of games that deserve remakes.

Generally, there are three good reasons to remake a game: to fix inherent problems that have come with age, to improve on a game that may not have been great in the first place and help it reach its potential, or to re-introduce a forgotten title/franchise to a new audience. In Sony’s case, though, none of these appear to be happening with their set of remakes.

How to Get into the Mines in Hokko Life

2 hours ago

Where are the mines in Hokko Life, and how do you get in? You need lots of rocks and metals like bronze, copper, and silver to craft high-end items in Hokko Life. For example, to complete your neighbor’s request to fix a broken chair, you’ll need to make steel from iron ore and coal. Unfortunately, nobody tells you where to find rocks and metals in Hokko Life – you have to find the mines and find a way in yourself. 

This guide tells you everything you need to know about how to get into the mines in Hokko Life

Finding the Pickaxe in Hokko Life

Before you can collect rocks and metal ores, you’ll need a pickaxe. Once you’ve unlocked the raised area of the Meadow, travel through the archway and up the stairs. At the first intersection, continue forward. Go right past the barricaded path, then forward and up the hill at the crossroads. Finally, head up the stairs, and you’ll see the entrance to the mines. 

Rocks block the entrance, but there’s a broken pickaxe on the ground. Pick it up and take it to Sally to ask her to fix it. She tells you she’ll have it ready the next day. Return the following day and talk to Sally again to get the fixed pickaxe.

SuperGroupies to Release Secret of Mana Accessories

2 hours 35 minutes ago

secret of mana supergroupies header

SuperGroupies has opened up pre-orders for Secret of Mana-themed accessories. Pre-orders close on October 24, 2022. In total, there are three items that are part of this collaboration: a bag, a watch, and a wallet. The watch will come out in late April 2023, while the bag and wallet will come out in mid-February 2023. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

The watch’s face has a Tree of Mana design on it. There is a see-through display near where the 12 is, and it swaps through the Mana Spirits every day. It will cycle through Wisp, Salamander, Gnome, Jinn, Shade, Luna, Undine, and Dryad. As well, the numbers for the hours are outside of the design, which means that you get a fairly clear look at the Tree of Mana. The watch costs 25,300 JPY, which is approximately $175.10.

[gallery ids="936772,936773,936774" link="file"]

While the watch’s band uses authentic leather, the bag is made of synthetic leather. It is “both fashionable and functional,” according to SuperGroupies’s website. There is a Flammie design on the bag. While the outside of the bag is fairly discreet, the inside pockets have Secret of Mana-themed patterns. The side pockets depict the Mana Spirits, while the interior looks like the Mana Tree, or the cover of the original game.. The bag costs 17,600 JPY, which is around $121.80.

Moonbreaker early access review: fun tabletop battling that's a bit too miniature right now

2 hours 36 minutes ago

Moonbreaker is an early access turn-based tabletop game by the Subnautica devs, and before you ask, no there isn't a Blue Eyes White Basking Shark piece that inhales everything on the board. There are, however, plenty of sci-fi people who wield spears and guns and do battle by spending a currency called Cinder, if that's your jam.

Whether you're new to tabletop strategy or already like bashing miniatures together, the game makes for a perfectly enjoyable time. I just don't know whether it goes beyond "perfectly enjoyable" into "thrilling", though, and that may be down to its lack of, well, lots of things. Give it time and it may just evolve into a game of serious depth but right now it's a bit too miniature to recommend wholeheartedly.

Intel Arc A770 and A750 review: welcome player three

2 hours 36 minutes ago

Intel's first enthusiast-grade graphics cards are here - and on the eve of AMD and Nvidia's transition to a new generation, Team Blue has actually done well. The $289 Arc A750 and $329/$349 Arc A770 offer surprisingly strong 1080p performance, a unique mix of features and aggressive pricing that makes them well worth considering for a mid-range PC - for most gamers, anyway.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves, though. There's loads to cover here and time is short, so let's take a quick overview of the hardware, cover the software features we're most interested in and then get into the meat of this review: gaming benchmarks.

We've got a brand new GPU test suite for late 2022, with a tranche of complete newcomers joining a remixed assortment of Digital Foundry favourites covering every major engine. It's a forward-looking test suite, with titles using modern APIs like DirectX 12 and Vulkan, which should give Intel a chance to demonstrate its strengths. Of course, we'll also be taking a look at performance in some classic 'banana skin' DX11 titles in our video review, where we expect Intel's first-generation Arc GPUs to have slightly more difficulty.

Valorant to Overwatch 2 Sensitivity Change Explained

2 hours 57 minutes ago

Blizzard’s anticipated Overwatch sequel has finally arrived and brought the franchise back into the spotlight once again. If you’re one of many new or returning players who have more recently been playing Valorant, here’s everything you need to know about Valorant to Overwatch 2 sensitivity changes and how to make the transition feel less jarring.

How to Change Valorant to Overwatch 2 Sensitivity

Let’s face it, Valorant and Overwatch 2 don’t really feel similar to play at all. While both are competitive shooters with hero abilities added into the mix, they control completely differently. Going from one to the other is a massive pace change and a totally different style of aiming. That all being said, you can make the transition feel much more natural by ensuring that you’re using the equivalent sensitivity across both games.

That isn’t easy to do, however, given that the two games weight in-game sensitivity values differently. For example, 1 sensitivity in Valorant is over 10 times the value in Overwatch 2!

Thankfully, there are sensitivity converters out there that allow you to easily make the adjustment. Our preference is the one from Gaming Smart, which has options to plug in different DPI settings as well for the most accurate conversion.

As an example, 0.32 sensitivity in Valorant is 3.394 in Overwatch 2.

Of course, we wouldn’t necessarily recommend that you stick with the same sensitivity across both games unless you already play with a very high sens in Valorant. Overwatch 2 requires a lot more tracking and quick 180 movements, which suits a higher sens, generally speaking.

Destiny 2 Witch Queen: How to Fix Weasel Error (Cat, Newt, Olive, Honeydew)

3 hours 41 minutes ago

Destiny 2’s Season of Plunder is here, but as is common among major launches, players are reporting error codes that are preventing them from getting involved. Here’s how to fix the error codes Weasel, Cat, Newt, Olive, Honeydew & other similar codes, and what it means in Destiny 2: Beyond Light.

What Do Error Codes Weasel, Cat, Newt, Olive, Honeydew Mean in Destiny 2: Witch Queen?

The launch of Destiny 2’s various expansions and seasons are highly anticipated and that means any time one arrives, there’s going to be a lot of people trying it out all at once. As you can imagine, that puts the servers under a lot of strain.

This is exactly what’s causing the Weasel, Cat, Newt, Olive, Honeydew, error codes. The latest major update is bringing back a ton of new players and it’s causing the game to crash or lose connection to the server.

If your game crashes and you see any of these error codes then don’t panic — it’s a crash that’s typical of a server overload in Destiny 2.

This often happens whenever there’s a major new expansion, season or other update coming to the game that encourages players to return to their Guardian and get grinding out exotics in Raids, Strikes and other public events.

How to Fix Destiny 2 Error Codes Weasel, Cat, Newt, Olive & Honeydew

So how to fix the issue? In short, there’s nothing you can do other than wait it out and keep retrying.

The best place to keep track of what’s going on is the Bungie Help Twitter account which will post server status updates.

Bayonetta voice now Jennifer Hale in upcoming third game

Unlike previous releases in the series, Bayonetta 3's titular Umbra Witch will not be voiced by Hellena Taylor.

The role has instead gone to Jennifer Hale, who has voiced characters such as Commander Shephard in Mass Effect and Naomi Hunter in the Metal Gear Solid series, to name but a few.

In an interview with Game Informer, which features Bayonetta 3 as its cover this issue, director Yusuke Miyata explained that "overlapping circumstances" meant that Taylor was unable to reprise her role as Bayonetta. As such, Hale stepped in to take the place of the series' title role, with Miyata stating he felt she was a "good match for the character" (thanks, Nintendo Everything).

Bayonetta Voice Actress Replaced By Mass Effect's Jennifer Hale

Bayonetta voice actress Hellena Taylor won’t be returning for Bayonetta 3.

A statement from PlatinumGames to Game Informer (via Nintendo Everything) has confirmed that Taylor, who voiced Bayonetta in the first two games, won’t be back.

“Various overlapping circumstances made it difficult for Hellena Taylor to reprise her role,” they confirmed. “We held auditions to cast the new voice of Bayonetta and offered the role to Jennifer Hale, whom we felt was a good match for the character.”

Bayonetta 3 is currently due for release at the end of the month. A sequel to Bayonetta 2, the game sees the titular heroine tackling Homunculi as she travels to the island of Thule to stop an evil entity known as The Singularity.

Is Grounded Coming to PS4 & Nintendo Switch? Answered

3 hours 56 minutes ago

Obsidian Entertainment’s latest game is here, and sees players exploring the perilous world of the back yard… when you’re shrunk down to the size of an ant. You’ll have to fend off big spiders, craft to survive, and of course, avoid giant spiders at all costs. While we already know the game is coming to Xbox One and PC, some players may be wondering ‘is Grounded coming to PS4 and Nintendo Switch?

Grounded PS4 & Switch Ports? Everything You Need to Know

At this moment in time, Grounded will only be available to play on Xbox One and PC. The game has been in early access since it initially launched in 2020, but Grounded received its 1.0 update and official release on Xbox consoles and PC in September 2022.

With Grounded having only just left early access on Xbox consoles and PC, there’s a good chance that the development team will continue to focus on post-launch support, addressing bugs and adding more content for players to explore in the great expanses of the game’s back garden setting.

It’s also worth noting that Obsidian Entertainment was acquired in 2018 by Microsoft, adding it to the family of Microsoft Game Studios developers. As such, Obsidian Entertainment is now a first-party studio, and will only release its games for Microsoft platforms like Xbox One and PC.

Whether this changes in the future remains to be seen, but with Sony offering up a stellar arsenal of exclusives for the PS4, it’s unlikely Microsoft will want to share any of its own first-party titles with other platforms, in the hope it’ll attract new players to the Xbox Series X|S and/or PC.

Xbox Seagate Expansion Cards Are Currently Discounted at Several Retailers

3 hours 57 minutes ago

If you're in the market for expanding your Xbox's potential storage, then this deal is specifically for you. Right now you can pick up the Seagate Official Xbox Storage Expansion Card for $199.99 at multiple retailers. That's $20 off the MSRP, and the lowest price we've seen on the SSD expansion card in 2022.

Amazon, Best Buy, and Target all have the 1TB expansion card down to $199.99 at the moment, so you've got plenty of options when it comes to your retailer of choice. The only thing I'd take into account is that both Target and Amazon have got big sales set to start soon, so it might be worth holding out a couple of days to see if you can get it cheaper then. Otherwise, I'll leave the relevant links for the deal just below.

Fortnite has added the Rocket League car

4 hours ago

Fortnite seemingly has everything these days. The Rock. Indiana Jones. Ripley from Alien. Now, it has the car from Rocket League.

At least this collaboration makes some sense - both Rocket League maker Psyonix and Fortnite are products of Epic Games, which has already worked in the past to bring its two audiences together.

Now, you can drive Rocket League's most famous vehicle - the Octane - within Fortnite. As you'd expect, it behaves just as it would on a Rocket League pitch - able to boost to high speeds and rapidly climb up walls.

How to Get Shiny Stone in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl

4 hours ago

If you’re looking to 100% Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, then your adventure doesn’t just stop when you’ve beaten the Elite Four. You’ve still got a bunch of Pokemon to catch in order to complete your Sinnoh Pokedex and get the National Pokedex. Some of those Pokemon require different evolution stones, including the Shiny Stone. Here’s how to get the Shiny Stone in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl.

What Is a Shiny Stone?

The Shiny Stone is an evolution stone that can be given to specific Pokemon to make them evolve. We’ve listed all Pokemon that evolve using Shiny Stones below:

  • Roselia –> Roserade (when happiness level is reached)
  • Togetic –> Togekiss (when happiness level is reached)

The official in-game description for the item reads: A peculiar stone that can make certain species of Pokemon evolve. It shines with a dazzling light.

How to Get Pokemon BDSP Shiny Stone

There are three places you can get a Shiny Stone in Pokemon BDSP. One can be found on Iron Island, another is at the Spacious Cave in the Northeastern Zone, while the third is found on Route 228.

Airborne survival game Forever Skies sets you on a course to find a cure for humanity in its toxic cloud sea

4 hours 6 minutes ago

Somewhere at the edges of the galaxy in No Man's Sky lies a large, verdant planet with an abandoned, but functioning, starter ship on it. I left it there in 2016 after discovering a larger ship out in the wilds, but it's a decision that still haunts me to this very day. You see, I was so taken with my new set of wings that I failed to notice it didn't have a functioning hyperdrive attached, which is needed to punch through the atmosphere to visit another solar system. It also turned out that this particular planet didn't have any of the necessary resources to craft a new one either, leaving my only form of escape back in my tiny little starter ship – which, of course, was now nowhere to be seen. I spent hours looking for that little ship, but the planet was so vast that I never saw it again.

Upcoming aerial survival game Forever Skies doesn't have lots of large planets to lose your only means of transportation in, thankfully. In its Steam Next Fest demo at least, the only things I was able to land my makeshift aircraft on were tiny, rusty platforms perched atop decaying skyscrapers on an Earth ruined by disease and an ecological apocalypse. But that fear of getting stranded somewhere I shouldn't be has never left me, and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't just a teensy bit scared of jumping down from my ship and finding I wasn't able to get back up to it again.
