Summertime brings bugs, photography and Sanrio to Kaia Island in Play Together

Posted by Shaun Walton on July 12th, 2024

Fresh from their appearances in Identity V, a crossover I still can't wrap my head around, Sanrios’ My Melody and Kuromi are making their way to the much more family-friendly world of Play Together. You can undertake a variety of missions featured after the two, and enjoy quite the expansion in the bug-related arena.

To help out the hungry inhabitants of Kaia Island, the ever-helpful Sanrio characters have decided to start a delivery service, but they need your help to do it. Team up with My Melody to head out to source the best ingredients, and then head back to the kitchen to help cook. Then, get your skates on with Kuromi to get that food to the starving faces of the world.

Posted by Shaun Walton on July 11th, 2024

It has been one year since Snowbreak: Containment Zone launched, and it has done pretty well for itself, which personally makes me quite pleased as I quite enjoyed it. It especially fared well in Asia, hitting #2 on the App Store in China, and #1 on Steam in Japan, and the celebrate Seasun have released their latest massive update.

There are two brand-new operatives to recruit, weapons to wield, two events to complete, and an enhanced dormitory system.

Lyfe will have a new setup dubbed Infinite Sight, whereas Fenny will be rocking one called Starshine. You will be able to get your hands on Starshine for free simply by logging on before August 22nd, and you will get her logistics Reverie Squad to boot.

Also when logging in, you will find yourself in receipt of a plethora of other rewards. Check your mail to find the ten free Echoes, and you will also receive a reset of the Mail Supply Reward Bonus. If you are hoping for exclusive outfits and Manifestation Echo Covenants then you are in luck, as you can grab these by completing tasks through the login event.

Zenless Zone Zero hosts the Drip Fest contest to celebrate its global launch

Posted by Shaun Walton on July 9th, 2024

It pains my soul deeply to have to write the name of this contest but to celebrate the launch of Endless Zone Zero, HoYoverse will be hosting their fan work contest dubbed Drip Fest. Players across the world can submit their works of art for the chance to win up to $3,000.00 in prizes, as well as the Golden Bangboo grand trophy.

Despite the name, this contest is quite impressive just in the scope of what submissions it will accept. You can enter works including illustrations, videos, and cosplays as you might expect. However, they will also accept music and even graffiti. Express yourself in any form of artistic endeavour, and you have a chance.

Posted by Shaun Walton on July 4th, 2024

Gamescom 2024 is fast approaching, and one of mobile gaming's biggest names, KRAFTON, has let slip its plans for this year. And by let slip, I mean they have created a whole website page and a trailer detailing the three games they will be showcasing from August 21st to August 25th.

KRAFTON has also announced the theme of their booth, which is Scale-up the Creative. This new strategy means they want to discover new fun games and effectively expand into the global market.

Return to China’s most exciting story with Otherworld Three Kingdoms: Idle RPG

Posted by Shaun Walton on July 2nd, 2024

If you have ever played Dynasty Warriors, you will know that the gameplay is pretty run-of-the-mill, but what makes them so enticing is the era in which it is set. It's a very interesting time in China’s history, and we can experience the lore all over again thanks to the release of Otherworld Three Kingdoms: Idle RPG.

The story follows Ayoung Cho, a massive fan of the Three Kingdoms story, as I am sure we all are. Suddenly, she finds herself thrust into the story in a way she never imagined. Arriving towards the end of the Han Dynasty, the Yellow Turban army is causing unrest, and Cho is about to have a fateful encounter of her own.

Identity V revives its silliest collaboration as new Sanrio costumes drop

Posted by Shaun Walton on July 1st, 2024

It turns out that the world's most unbelievable collaboration was so ridiculous, that Identity V is doing it twice. The cute and fluffy cutters of the Sanrio universe will be making their way back to the dark, dangerous world of NetEases’ 1v4 asymmetrical game, and just what are they thinking?

This second wave of Sanrio characters comes under the event dubbed Kuromi's Spaceship Program, so you can assume who one of them is. At least Kuromi somewhat suits the world of Identity V with their impish hat, however, you can also recruit My Melody, who absolutely does not.

Blue Archive heads for nature in New Year event

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 27th, 2024

Continuing the Blue Archive trend of releasing seasonal events to the Western version of the game nowhere near when they actually happened, the Cyber New Year March update has arrived. It brings with it a story centring around New Year, which it slightly missed by a few months, and two new recruits for your squad.

Our story this time revolves around the Veritas students, the famously lazy lot. The Millennium Science School hacker club are in for a rude awakening, however, as Vice President Chihiro decides it's time for a road trip. The club will trade computers for camping equipment on a quest to witness the New Year’s sunrise.

Once Human conquers maths to be one hotly anticipated launch ahead of its July 9th date

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 26th, 2024

It feels like Once Human has been in development for about ten years at this point, but that has clearly not blunted the excitement for NetEases’ upcoming open-world survival game. As a matter of fact, it seems things have never been better, as its appearance at the latest Steam Next Fest shows.

With the official release date of July 9th finally upon us, the anticipation appears to be at a fever pitch. Within just two hours of the demo going live, Once Human rocketed up to the 8th most-watched game on Twitch. Bearing in mind that’s every single game, with the Elden DLC also having just been released, that’s an impressive feat.

Watcher of Realms celebrates its first anniversary with some very generous events

Posted by Shaun Walton on June 25th, 2024

It has been one year since Moonton Games kicked off the fantasy RPG Watcher of Realms, and there are a lot of celebrations to mark the occasion. You could take part in a brand-new mode, earn some skins, and recruit some of the strongest characters in the game with minimal effort.

Starting off big, we have a new guild boss to contend with in the form of Semrah, who apparently will offer a unique challenge with unusual gameplay opportunities. If you are looking for something completely different, however, then you could tackle the Eternal Spire. Be quick though, as it is only around for a limited time.
