Kirby Cafe Nagoya Will Be Open For a Limited Time

2 days 21 hours ago

Kirby Cafe Nagoya

A new Kirby Cafe branch will appear temporarily in Nagoya, Japan. Benelic has opened a new webpage for Kirby Cafe Nagoya, which will be open from September 15, 2022, to February 5, 2023. On August 12, 2022, the company will open reservations for cafe attendances up to November 30, 2022.

The Nagoya branch will have several exclusive entries on its menu. One of them will be a Waddle Dee-printed burger served with meat pasta and warm vegetables. The other will feature a hot dog with fried shrimp put literally inside Kirby's mouth. Visitors will also be able to order a Kirby-decorated peach parfait, and they can also bring the glass home by paying extra.

A store selling Kirby-themed merchandise will also appear nearby the cafe, and anyone will be able to visit it without needing a reservation. Benelic will reveal the goods lineup at a later time.

[gallery ids="933250,933249,933248" link="file"]

As of this writing, the Kirby Cafe has two permanent branches in Japan. The game character-branded cafe used to appear sporadically since at least 2016. The first permanent cafe appeared at Tokyo Skytree Town Solamachi in late 2019. Benelic then launched the second branch on Kyushu island at Canal City Hakata in Fukuoka. The company has yet to announce whether it has any plans to turn the new Nagoya branch into a permanent one as well.

PlayStation Survey at EVO Asks Players What NFTs They'd Like to Buy

2 days 21 hours ago

At EVO 2022, PlayStation is asking players through a survey about what kind of NFTs they would be interested in purchasing.

On Twitter, user snorlaxownz posted a screenshot of a survey they received from PlayStation asking, “Which of the following NFT/Digital Collectibles would you most be interested in purchasing?” The answers include EVO-branded collectibles, favorite music artists, favorite esports players and teams, PlayStation items, and favorite game characters.

IGN confirmed the survey ourselves at EVO, suggesting at the very least PlayStation is gauging user interest for NFTs at the event.

PlayStation previously addressed NFTs before. Last month, Sony launched a new PlayStation Stars loyalty program that allowed players to earn digital collectibles such as figurines of its iconic characters. However, Sony clarified that these digital collectibles in the program are not NFTs as they do not utilize any blockchain technology.

Saturnalia Is A Survival Horror Indie With An Art Style You Have To See

2 days 21 hours ago

Saturnalia Indie Survival Horror Trailer

Saturnalia is an upcoming indie survival horror with one of the most interesting visual styles I’ve seen in the genre in a minute. 

Developed by Italy-based studio Santa Ragione, Saturnalia is influenced heavily by the folklore of Sardinia, Italy, and inspired by Italian Giallo horror films (typically more horror-esque mystery thrillers). In it, you control four different characters, all connected through a mysterious storyline that ties back to the “haunting traditions” of an ancient village. 

“The village itself is an elaborate maze with no two iterations being precisely the same – you will have to explore and solve mysteries of the game largely unguided,” the game’s website reads. “Die, and watch the village reconfigure itself into a new form. Solve puzzles and open shortcuts to new areas with tools and items you find along the way, unlocking every piece of the story with different characters, each suited for another aspect of exploration and investigation.” 

All of that sounds great, but Saturnalia's unique art style makes me most excited. It’s like a mix of stop-motion and sketchbook, which looks like it’ll lend itself nicely to the game's horror elements. Check it out for yourself below:

Sonic Origins Patch Fixes Tails' Annoying Jumping In Sonic 2, Various Other Bugs

2 days 21 hours ago

When Sonic Origins arrived on consoles and PC in June, it delivered a four-pack of classic Sonic the Hedgehog games from the '90s. While the bundle was praised for bringing Sonic 1, Sonic 2, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, and Sonic CD to modern platforms with various gameplay enhancements and other additions, it was also heavily criticized. Various bugs, mislabeled titles in the in-game museum, and overall stability (particularly with the PC version) frustrated the player base as they waited for Sega to fix the problems. This week, Sega released that long-awaited patch, addressing those problems and more, hopefully stabilizing the compilation and making the overall experience more enjoyable.

The two biggest items this patch addresses include fixing issues with the game crashing and one of the most annoying bugs of the year: Tails falling behind in Sonic 2 and constantly jumping instead of respawning on the player – we can finally turn off mute when playing Sonic 2. The patch also includes fixes for sound bugs, menu and controller issues, museum mislabels, and data-saving issues. Unfortunately, the replacement music in Ice Cap, Carnival Night, and Launch Base remain in place. 

The patch is available to download now for all platforms. Sonic Origins arrived on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC on June 23. For more on the speedy selection of games, check out our review here.

Halo Infinite Update Will Add Doubles Playlists, More Helmet Customization Options

2 days 21 hours ago

The next "drop pod" update for Halo Infinite arrives August 9, and it will include a number of features fans have long asked for.

As detailed in a new 343 Industries blog post, the upcoming drop pod (which is 343's term for smaller, quality-of-life focused updates) will allow for unlocked visors to be used interchangeably between all of the game's armor cores. That will apply to all visors to be added to the game in the future as well.

In addition, some helmet attachments exclusive to specific Mark VII helmets will be able to be worn on multiple Mark VII helmets. 343 states that not all Mark VII helmet attachments are interchangeable because many were made specifically for certain helmets, but ones that happen to fit well on other helmets will now be usable. A full list of all the helmet and attachment combinations will come with the update's official patch notes closer to release.

The armor updates will come alongside the much-requested ability to view the game's multiplayer challenges mid-match from the pause screen. However, challenge progress when viewed from the pause screen will not update in real time, as Halo Infinite currently calculates challenges at the end of a match. 343 says it is working to make it so challenge progress will be displayed as it happens during a match, but that will come at a later date.

Latest Sonic Origins patch takes aim at Sonic the Hedgehog 2's wonky Tails AI

2 days 22 hours ago

Sega has released another round of fixes for Sonic Origins - the publisher's disappointing collection of classic Sonic platformers - this time taking aim at Sonic the Hedgehog 2's troublesome Tails AI.

Sonic Origins was, to put it politely, a bit of a mess when it launched earlier this year, and was plagued by enough presentational and technical issues - as extensively documented by Digital Foundry's John Linneman - that its developer publicly hit out at Sega, saying it was "very unhappy" at the state the game had been launched in.

Since then, Sega has been working to fix some of Origins' more egregious problems, and its latest patch - officially known as update 1.04 - leads with an attempt to remedy a widely reported AI issue that would repeatedly cause Tails to goes off-screen in Sonic the Hedgehog 2, unable to rejoin the action.

New Study Finds Belgium's Loot Box Ban Is Barely Enforced

2 days 22 hours ago

Back in 2018, the Belgium Gambling Commission found that loot boxes were a form of gambling and recommended criminal prosecution against developers and publishers who implement them in their games. However, a new study found that Belgium's ban is functionally not enforced.

As reported by GamesIndustry.biz, a study from loot box scholar Leon Y. Xiao found that the law has been unevenly and ineffectively implemented. The study claims that 82% of the highest-grossing iPhone titles in Belgium have loot box implementation. It goes on to claim that the ban gives parents and policymakers a "false sense of security." In addition, the study emphasizes that the technical measures undertaken to prevent loot box purchasing in Belgium are easily circumvented by savvy players. Xiao concludes with recommending a less strict, but more thoughtfully enforced, policy.

Belgian's policy did cause some broad changes in the country. After discussions with Belgian authorities, EA removed virtual currency from FIFA titles in the country. Nintendo ceased support for Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and Fire Emblem Heroes to prevent prosecution or regulation. However, Xiao's study argues that the ban allowed "non-compliant games to replace games that have been removed from the national market by more socially responsible companies."

NBA 2K23 Badges - All New, Removed, And Changed Badges In This Year's Game

2 days 22 hours ago

NBA 2K23 is nearly here, and that means a fresh badge system is upon us. While we can't yet provide our complete NBA 2K23 badge tier list--we need to play the game for that--we do already know the complete list of new badges, as well as which ones have been removed or combined into preexisting badges in this year's game. NBA 2K23 introduces a drastically overhauled badge system, which splits the badges into tiers and allows for some additional badge slots for all players. The team at Visual Concepts has also consolidated or outright removed some badges based on telemetry data that helped pinpoint which badges were being used a lot and which ones weren't really being used much at all.

In this NBA 2K23 badge guide, we'll share the complete list of new badges, and note how some have changed as well as which will be absent when the game launches on September 8. In time, we'll update this guide to reflect the complete list of badges and sort them into tiers to help you build your own virtual athlete.

NBA 2K23 badge list

More than perhaps any other sports sim, the customizable MyPlayer system in NBA 2K is really the annual draw, more than MyTeam or season-long modes. With custom players come badges, which grant skills in different areas of a player's game, such as shooting and defense. This year's game--on new-gen versions only--reimagines the badge system you may be used to into a three-tier system, with Tier 1 badges costing the least but also providing the smallest boosts. From there, each tier gets more powerful and costly. Visual Concepts says the idea behind this new system "is that you’ll need to equip a certain number of badges in the lower tiers before you can equip badges in the highest."

Top 10 Best Scary Movies For 13-Year-Olds

Back in the ’80s and ’90s, there were a wealth of creepy comedy-horror movies designed specifically to scare the heck out of kids. These days, however, the sub-genre has largely fallen by the wayside.

Sure, we have 2009’s The Hole and 2015’s Goosebumps, which were both *this* close to making the final list, but it’s fair to say that getting your mitts on scary movies aimed at a young adult demographic is getting harder and harder.

Recently, creative director Chris Roberts provided an overview of the state of development and of the plans for 2022 and beyond.

A Newcomer’s Trek Through Final Fantasy XIV (Feat. Sarah Podzorski) | Game Informer Live

2 days 23 hours ago

I love Final Fantasy. I’ve played nearly every numbered entry and have beaten most of them. I adore Final Fantasy Tactics. I watched both terrible feature films. My ringtone is the FFVII victory fanfare theme. But the biggest hole in my fandom for years has been Final Fantasy XIV.

MMOs have never appealed to me, but as I listened to friends and colleagues rave about FFXIV over its long existence, the more I felt like I was missing out on something special. Every expansion and free trial had me hovering over the purchase button, but I always told myself I didn’t have the time to invest in such a behemoth of a game. The excuses have come to an end. 

I’ve finally broken the seal and dived headfirst into one of the most celebrated games on the planet. Join me on Twitch at 2 p.m. Central as I trek through my first dungeon with the help of two of the biggest FFXIV experts I know. First up is the returning Jon Woodey, Game Informer web programmer extraordinaire. I’ll also have a special guest: MinnMax cohort Sarah Podzorski joins our party to lend her bubbly brand of insight. Watch along to learn some valuable tips and tricks and, if you’re like me, get an early taste of FFXIV to see if it’s something you want to jump into as well!

New Marvel’s Midnight Suns Video Is All About the History of Captain Marvel

2 days 23 hours ago

2K Games and Firaxis Games revealed another video about the turn-based tactical game Marvel’s Midnight Suns, dedicated to one of its playable superheroes.

This time around we can enjoy a deep dive in the history behind Carol Danvers, A.K.A. super-powerful cosmic heroine Captain Marvel.

Unlike the previous trailer, which was brief and introduced her gameplay, this time around we hear a lot of Captain Marvel from her origins to her interactions with magic, which is a major theme in Midnight Suns.

Given the pattern of previous videos, we can expect a much more extensive video explaining her gameplay soon enough, likely during the weekend.

In the meanwhile, you can check this one out below.

This follows the trailer that showcased the gameplay of Steve Rogers A.K.A. Captain America, and another that delved into his history.

Face-Off: MultiVersus vs Super Smash Bros Ultimate

2 days 23 hours ago

The Super Smash Bros series is a near-impossible act to follow, but that's exactly the challenge MultiVersus faces as a new, free to play Smash-like from developer Player First Games. Now in open beta on PS5, Xbox Series X, last-gen and PC, it's a 5GB download that lets anyone hop in. It's admittedly light on options - as you may expect from an open beta - but you do get to tinker with 17 characters - all fully voice-acted. Crucially, MultiVersus also launches with robust online play, built from the ground up with rollback netcode - right away giving it an edge over Super Smash Bros Ultimate's online play on Switch. It's off to a good start. Speaking purely on MultiVersus' visual design as an Unreal Engine 4 title though, how much does it get right next to Nintendo's heavyweight? And where does it seem to fall short in its open beta state?

Jota celebrated by sitting down and pretending to play FIFA. (Jota continued his impressive form in front of goal by adding a second goal later in the first half. Liverpool went on to win 4-0.)

Capcom has released Guile's theme for Street Fighter 6, a brand-new track called Sharpened Sonic.

Street Fighter 6 Vibes With Guile’s Music Theme “Sharpened Sonic” With New Video

Today Capcom kicked off the EVO 2022 celebrations with a new video about its upcoming fighting game Street Fighter 6.

As with similar videos, we don’t see any gameplay, but we can get a good listen at Guile’s music theme, “Sharpened Sonic.”

This is the fifth music reveal made for the game, as a few weeks ago Capcom published the official music video for the main theme, titled Not on the Sidelines, followed by the themes for Chun-Li and new-ish character Lukethe theme for Ryu, and the music created for Jamie.

You can check the track out in the video below.

Guile is one of the most classic Street Fighter characters, having first appeared in the original Street Fighter II.

He was absent from Street Fighter III and had to wait for DLC to appear in Street Fighter V, but he will be part of the initial roster in Street Fighter 6, as he should.

Assassin's Creed Valhalla Might Be Getting an Iron Man-Inspired Armor Set

3 days ago

Assassin's Creed Valhalla seems primed to introduce an armor set that references Iron Man.

As spotted by Eurogamer, dataminer AndyReloads has found some sleek new armor hidden in the game’s files, which could be released in a future update. The Advanced Mechanicals Armor Set gives users the ability to use a chest-mounted energy beam, much the same as Iron Man’s unibeam.

The set comes in two colorways, with the Copper edition very much looking like Iron Man's red and gold attire. A second Iron version is a sleek white take that looks more akin to a Star Wars Stormtrooper. Neither includes a specific reference to the movies in question, so these seem to be cheeky references rather than an official crossover.
