1 hour 7 minutes ago

Lucky Balls are a new item introduced in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, and they help to add a little more flair and excitement to the existing lottery system. Here’s how to get them, and what they do in the game.

Getting Lucky Balls in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

The only way to get Lucky Balls in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is by playing the lottery. After you complete a quest, there’s a 20% chance that a sale will get activated at the Elgado General Store, allowing you to participate in the lottery system.

Speak with the General Store NPC to play the lottery to win a random prize (these can range from recovery to trap items to help you during hunts), and in doing so, you’ll have a chance of getting a Lucky Ball as well.

How to Return to Kamura in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

2 hours 54 minutes ago

If you’re wondering how to return to Kamura village in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, here’s everything you need to know.

Kamura served as the main hub or base camp in the original story, but considering that Sunbreak takes you to an entirely different location, players might be wondering how to get back to the village in between missions. Let’s get into it.

Going Back to Kamura in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

Once you start Sunbreak, you’ll be locked into the expansion content for a short while, which means there’s no way to return to Kamura until you’ve progressed a bit further. Thankfully, you’ll only need to clear out a few quests before you’re able to travel back and forth between both locations again.

All you have to do is follow the story objectives and clear out the Master Rank 1 quests, and once you’ve done so, the game will inform you that you’re able to head back to Kamura again.

How to Increase Master Rank & Max Master Rank Level in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

2 hours 54 minutes ago

Here’s a breakdown of how you can increase your Master Rank in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, as well as what the max Master Rank level is. Master Ranks are a new addition in Sunbreak that allow players to take on even more challenging hunts, which is great news for players who have already played the crap out of the base game. Let’s get into it.

What Master Rank Does

As mentioned earlier, by increasing your Master Rank, you’ll be able to go on more challenging hunts. And by taking down the tougher monsters, you can gather even more high quality materials to make better armor and weapons, which will make your subsequent hunts more manageable.

This is the core gameplay loop of Monster Hunter, and it remains intact in Sunbreak as well. Whenever you get stuck, consider farming some of your earlier hunts for materials to craft better equipment, then take on the highest level challenge available to you.

Increasing Master Rank in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

If you’ve already played the base game, then you should already be pretty familiar with how the Master Rank system works in Sunbreak.

It works the same way as your Hunter Rank in the original campaign of Monster Hunter Rise, and as it increases, you’ll be able to go on harder hunts.

How to Undertake Follower Collab Quests in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

2 hours 54 minutes ago

Wondering how to undertake follower collaboration quests in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak? Well, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’ll explain how to get followers to join you on your adventure through Sunbreak’s new monstrous expansion. So, without further ado, let’s jump into it.

Undertaking Follower Collaboration Quests in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

It’s important to note that Follower Collab quests are not available straight away in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak. You gain access to them shortly after you kick off your adventure.

After you complete that specific quest, the Follower Collab option unlocks at the Quest Counter (shown in the below image), and you can go on other missions with her or other NPCs, with other Follower Colab targets being added over time.

2 hours 55 minutes ago

Climactic encounters with towering beasts are arguably the most recognizable aspect of the Monster Hunter franchise, and Sunbreak introduces a whole host of new monstrosities to overcome.

Let’s take a look at all the new monsters in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

All New Monsters in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak

Below we will take a look at each new monster you will encounter while on your journey through the Kingdom of Elgado.

How to Start the Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak Expansion

2 hours 55 minutes ago

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak is a massive expansion, introducing tough new monsters to hunt, a Master Rank tier of gear to craft, and lush locales to explore. There is plenty on offer to keep even the most dedicated Hunters occupied for hours on end. But how do you access this new content? Let’s take a look at exactly how to start the Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak expansion.

How to Start the Sunbreak Expansion in Monster Hunter Rise

First things first, actually beginning Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak requires you to have completed the vast majority of the base game. This is because Sunbreak’s content is set at the new Master Rank, meaning it is significantly more difficult than the base game.

While this might be unfortunate for Switch players looking to dive into the newer PC version, with all its bells and whistles, or new players looking to jump in, there is currently no way around this fact.

The base Monster Hunter Rise content will take an experienced player around 25 hours to complete, and a new player somewhere in the realm of 30+ hours. It helps that it is a fantastic game in its own right (and you can read our review of it right here), but just know that it might be a while before you get to the new content.

Everything You Need to Know About Master Rank Gear in Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak

2 hours 55 minutes ago

Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak continues the series’ core gameplay loop of enticing players into dangerous hunts in order to earn valuable material, which can then be forged into more powerful gear, which you can then use to hunt more dangerous monsters. In Sunbreak, there is an entirely new tier of armor to work towards called Master Rank, and it represents the very pinnacle of what you can craft. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know about Master Rank gear in Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak.

Everything You Need to Know About Monster Hunter Rise Sunbreak’s Master Rank Gear

In the base game of Monster Hunter Rise, there were two tiers of tools budding Hunters could craft: Low Rank and High Rank. This corresponded with the stage you were at in the game. When undertaking Low-Rank Hunts, you would earn materials that could be used to craft Low-Rank gear. High Rank works the same way, the difference being the level of that set Equipment Skill (the passive effects that your Hunter gains by wearing the set.)

Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp Arrives on PS4, PC, & Mobile in July

3 hours ago

Not to be confused with the mainline games, Danganronpa S: Ultimate Summer Camp is an expanded version of the optional board game that we saw back in Danganronpa V3. It was released as part of the Decadence Switch package last year, but PS4, PC, and mobile players will be able to grab it next month as well.

Set on Jabberwock Island, players will be able to experience a new story featuring all of the characters from across all the Danganronpa games, as well as Monokuma and his Monokids. This is an RPG-style board game where your characters can level up as you roll the dice and move them along the board, and engage in turn-based combat against Monokuma’s minions.

The gameplay is honestly pretty bland, and the highlight here is getting to see all your series faves interact with each other. But even that bit feels rather fanservice-y and not exactly very well-written, especially by Danganronpa standards. That said, this does feel like a great game to take with you on mobile devices, and could be worth a look if you’re a longtime fan of the series.

You can check out some of the in-game screenshots down below as well:

What Did Hisoka Tell Bodoro in Hunter x Hunter?

5 hours 59 minutes ago

The world of Hunter x Hunter has many unanswered questions that fans still wonder about since its release in 2011. Inquiries can range from the mysteries of Gon’s birth mother to Ging’s Nen abilities, but one that remains an enigma is what Hisoka tells Bodoro during their fight. After looking over theories and facts about the popular show, we’ll explain what really happened between the two.

What Did Hisoka Tell Bodoro in Hunter x Hunter? Answered

Because Bodoro met his demise in Hunter x Hunter, there isn’t a clear-cut answer to what Hisoka told him during the exam. Fortunately, fans have come up with some theories that could potentially be true when examining Bodoro’s characteristics.

While looking back at the series, you may notice that he refuses to fight children due to his code of ethics. In addition, Bodoro states that he will not fight Killua and Gon because of their young age, which further instigates the martial artist’s fight against Hisoka. However, during the showdown, he refuses to give up, in spite of being brutally injured by the conniving magician.

Considering these various topics, the community believes that Hisoka whispers, “If you don’t forfeit, I am going to fight the children,” causing Bodoro to surrender. Those who have watched the anime can see the irony in this theory once the arc ends.

The Best Fire Emblem Games, All 9 Ranked

6 hours 35 minutes ago

The Fire Emblem series was properly revived with the release of Awakening back in 2013, and it’s only gotten even more popular since then. Which means that it’s time to rank all eight main Fire Emblem games that have been released so far.

Note: This list is only for the Fire Emblem games that have been released in North America up to this point. There’s also a spoiler warning for most of the titles listed here.

9. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon (2008)

fire emblem: shadow dragon

Shadow Dragon released on the Nintendo DS, but is actually a remake of the very first game that released on the Famicom in 1990. Even with a modern coat of paint and some improvements Shadow Dragon still has some pieces that feel dated, making it more of an experience to see where the series started.

When Does Devil Is a Part-Timer Season 2 Come Out?

7 hours 1 minute ago

If you’re wondering when Devil Is a Part-Timer Season 2 comes out, here’s what you need to know. After a long wait, and plenty of rumors to keep fans on edge, the beloved series finally has a set release date for its second season. Let’s get into it.

Devil Is a Part-Timer Season 2 Release Date

The subbed and dubbed versions of Devil Is a Part-Timer Season 2 releases on July 14, where Sadao must take care of a mysterious child. Since being a parent is no easy feat, he seeks the help of his companions, such as Alciel and Chiho Sasaki. But, to the Demon King’s dismay, the child believes that Emilia and Sadao are her parents, resulting in hilarious shenanigans between the two.

In the latest trailer for the anime, all-new characters will join the cast, including Amane Oguro, Lailah, Gabriel, and Camio. In addition, other returning members will have a more prominent role in the second season, including Rika Suzuki and Mayumi Kisaki.

The last time we saw the Ente Isla residents was in 2013 in its initial launch, showcasing the Devil and the Hero teaming up to save humanity from various atrocities. By the last episode, the two seemingly come to terms with each other; however, they will undoubtedly maintain their rocky relationship in Season 2.

Soul Hackers 2 for PS5, PS4, Xbox, & PC Gets New Trailer All About Weird Pizza

7 hours ago

Today Atlus released another daily trailer of the upcoming JRPG Soul Hackers 2, focusing on some of the locations and dishes that will be featured in the game.

We return to the Pizzeria “Bon Appetite” where apparently you can order pizza named “Accuracy Bambino.”

Funnily, as an Italian, I’ve never in my life heard of a kind of pizza named “Bambino.” After a bit of research, turns out it’s a freestyle pizza concept somewhat popular in Japan that involves toppings popular with children (“Bambino” in Italian means “Child”), like corn, tuna, and bacon. The things you learn from the trailer of a game…

Like most daily trailers, we also get the daily horoscope, which sees Libra at the top of the fortune ranking and cancer at the bottom.

You can check the video out below.

Why Stranger Things Season 4 Is Split Into 2 Parts

13 hours 52 minutes ago

If you’re wondering why Stranger Things Season 4 is split into 2 parts, then you’ve come to the right place. Below, we’ll discuss why the Duffer Brothers’ ’80s-inspired sci-fi horror series was chopped into two separate volumes. So, without further delay, let’s dive in, shall we?

Why Was Stranger Things Season 4 Split Into 2 Volumes? Explained

Unlike many other TV series which usually focus on one or two storylines, Stranger Things Season 4 features four major storylines that are intricately interwoven into the overarching narrative. The sheer breadth and length of all these different plot threads needed a lengthier runtime than usual to help serve the story at the heart of Season 4.

In a recent interview with Variety, Matt and Ross Duffer — the creators of the popular show — discussed the writing process and why the runtime ended up being longer:

We knew they were going to be longer but not long like they ended up being, and that was something we didn’t really figure out until we were in editorial, because I don’t know what happened. Something changed with the way we write scripts. […]

We look back at season one, because those were scripts for, you know, 55/60 pages and [they] ended up being like 48 [minutes long] whereas these [Season 4] scripts were like 70/75 pages and they ended up being at least 75 minutes if not over. […]

As you can see, the script for Season 4 featured many more pages than in previous seasons, which had a knock-on effect that ultimately impacted the show’s overall runtime.

What Does ‘MIT’ Mean in Overwatch 2 (OW2)? Scoreboard Changes Explained

14 hours 36 minutes ago

As the arrival of Overwatch 2 creeps nearer each and every day, eager fans have been testing out some of the new features and additions through the latest beta, which lasts until July 18. While the general gameplay may still be the same, the way Overwatch 2 monitors your contributions has changed in some ways. If you are wondering about the changes to the scoreboard in Overwatch 2 and what does MIT mean, read on to find out.

What Does ‘MIT’ Mean in Overwatch 2

If you are looking at the MIT portion of the scoreboard and scratching your head, the answer is actually quite simple. MIT stands for mitigated damage, essentially damage that has been prevented by a skill. As per the patch notes for the Overwatch 2 beta, this statistic “encompasses the previous Damage Blocked, but also keeps track of damage prevented by effects such as Ana’s Nano Boost or Orisa’s Fortify.”

As of right now, not all skills are counting towards your MIT score, but Blizzard will continue to make tweaks in the coming days.

Overwatch 2 Scoreboard Changes Explained

Other than the addition of the MIT portion, the Overwatch 2 scoreboard has also made some changes to the Assist statistic. Now, all the Defensive and Offensive Assists are collated under this singular stat.

So, the columns marked E, A, D, DMG, H, and MIT represent Eliminations, Assists, Deaths, Hero Damage dealt, Healing Done, and Damage Mitigated respectively.
