Tekken 8 Lars Alexandersson Gameplay Trailer – This Man is on Lightning

Bandai Namco has released its Tekken 8u reveal trailer for Lars Alexandersson, the other Mishima of the bunch. Ok, he’s Kazuya’s brother from another mother, but you know what I mean. The last time we saw Lars, he stood alongside Jin Kazama in Tekken 7, swearing to help him change the world. So, of course, he’d make his Tekken 8 return. We can see in the trailer that Lars has a new outfit but still has his punishing lightning attacks, that might put him on par with Jin and Kazuya’s own punishin

How to open the Diablo 4 Silent Chests

Throughout your adventures in the Diablo 4 beta and eventually the full game, you’ll likely come across a Silent Chest that looks fancy, and when you try to open it you’ll be told that it’s locked and you’ll need a Whispering Key. Now, try as you might you simply can’t find that blasted key. The thing is, you can’t loot this key off of any named enemies. Instead, you’ll have to purchase it. To do this, you’ll need to have some Murmuring Obols. To get these, you’ll have to engage in the events t

How to reset Diablo 4 Dungeons

The dungeons in the Diablo 4 beta are damned fun if I say so myself. However, after running through a few, I wanted to go back and do them again. Maybe a boss kicked my butt more than I wanted, or if I wanted to find find more loot. Either way, it’s pretty simple to reset the dungeons in Diablo 4. All you have to do is access the map, and once you do that, you should see a tab on the right-hand side of the screen. This opens up the journal. At the bottom of the journal is an option to “Reset Dun

Get a KFC Diablo 4 code without getting a Double Down Sandwich

Blizzard and KFC have teamed up to provide Diablo 4 early access, and all you have to do is purchase one of those KFC Double Down sandwiches from either the KFC website or the app. That sounds like a good deal, right? Well, how’s about a better way to score a Diablo 4 code from KFC, and one without forcing you to digest one of those high-calorie KFC Double Down sandwiches? You’ll still need to order from the KFC app or the website, but this is a lifesaver. Instead of ordering the KFC Double Dow

Tekken 8 King gameplay trailer – All hail the King

Geez, two Tekken 8 character reveals in one week? What’s going on, Bandai Namco? In the most recent Tekken 8 character reveal, we get some gameplay from the wrestling king (see what I did there?), King II. That’s right, King II is back, and he still knows his way around the ring, and in this gameplay trailer, he puts poor Paul Phoenix through a number of punishing moves and even gives a touching speech that we can’t understand. What is interesting about this King, is the changes to his costume

As the trailer puts it, “Gods created by science,” and ultimately, are the ones that the players will need to vanquish to save that town. It will be interesting to see how A

Horizon Call of the Mountain review

Horizon Call of the Mountain feels like a strange game to be the PlayStation VR 2 system seller. Being story-driven games, it requires 100s of hours of gameplay to catch up to just the start of it. This being said, Guerilla Games and Firesprite have done a surprisingly good job for those who want to start here. Horizon Call of the Mountain is a great sign of what VR can do, however, it falls into some of the pitfalls that come with the sheer spectacle of the hardware. Game Name: Horizon Call of

Marshall Law Tekken 8 gameplay trailer revealed

For the past few weeks, Bandai Namco has been revealing its roster for Tekken 8, Bandai Namco’s upcoming fighting video game, with the most recent reveal being Marshall Law. You may have noticed that Marshall Law was the same person in the Tekken 8 Paul Phoenix gameplay trailer that was released last week. Making his return to the Tekken series, Marshall Law is looking quite buff. I don’t remember him being quite this swol in the last few games. Though, this goes the ongoing theme of showing ju

Stop the Xbox controller from disconnecting on Windows PCs

I’ve always had an issue with the Xbox One or Xbox Series controllers when I’ve connected them wireless to my PC, which ran either Windows 8/8.1/10 or, more currently, Windows 11. These controllers were connected using the Xbox Wireless adapter. Whenever I attempted to play with any number of Xbox One or Xbox Series controllers, I would get various Xbox controller disconnects. As you can imagine, dealing with a controller disconnect during a moment of hot and heavy gameplay isn’t idea… Especiall

Naughty Dog’s once-exclusive PlayStation title, The Last of Us 1, is heading to the PC as of March 28, 2023, and now that a release date has been confirmed, the PC specs and a few other things are as well. That said, most who are looking to play this port are definitely going to need to ensure that their PC is up to the task. One thing I have to point out is that this is the first PC game to require an SSD for its lowest PC requirement setting. If you don’t have an SSD, you’re likely going to w

Gunfire Games, the developer of one of my favorite games, Remnant from the Ashes, has released some new gameplay footage of the Gunslinger class and gives an excellent breakdown of its Archetype system. There’s a lot to take in here, but it does show that Gunfire Games wants players to have more freedom in terms of the builds they’ll create when Remnant II is released. Check out the Gunslinger Archetype trailer below. Remnant II was revealed during The Game Awards show (2022), and when I saw
