It’s easy to lose track of time in Dragon’s Dogma 2. There is simply so much to do in Capcom’s action RPG. One minute you are waking up at the inn ready to start your long hike to the next town, and the next thing you you got lost on a detour through a cave system, it’s nighttime, and you’ve let an entire day pass you by. That time loss isn’t great when some quests require you to show up at designated times or run the risk of failing them. Most players, me included, might wonder how you can actually tell time in the game beyond the movement of the sun. Well, it turns out there is a clock in Dragon’s Dogma 2 and it’s probably been staring you in the face. - Willa Rowe Read More

Epic RPG Final Fantasy VII Rebirth doesn’t just have individual levels for characters, it also has something called Party Level. Maxing out at Level 10, Party Level influences how much of your character Folios (which grant new abilities and stat boosts) you can unlock. - Claire Jackson Read More

Final Fantasy VII Rebirth has 36 side-quests littered across the planet’s surface. And once you finish the main story for Square Enix’s massive RPG, you can choose whether to reset these quests or not. The only tricky part, of course, is that Rebirth’s menu options have some confusing language. - Claire Jackson Read More

Bethesda’s open-world RPG Fallout 4 arrived on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 on November 10, 2015. Given that it’s nearing ten years old and is vast enough to easily take up well over a hundred hours of your time, it’s entirely possible that you may have fallen off this title too soon. - Claire Jackson Read More

The Stellar Blade demo has been out since March 29, and if you manage to beat it, your save data will carry over to the full game when it launches as a PlayStation 5 exclusive on April 26. One thing I was curious about was the “Skin Suit,” an outfit for protagonist Eve that basically has her traversing the world in the nude and makes the game way more challenging. Surprisingly, at least in the demo, it’s an incredibly easy thing to unlock, so since I just learned how to get it, I figured I’d teach you how to get it, too. Sharing is caring, after all. - Levi Winslow Read More

Final Fantasy is a series that’s been known for its epic summons, god-like entities who’ll aid you in battle. Rebirth introduces a number of classics who you can acquire by defeating them in Chadley’s combat simulator. One of which is Odin, who is notoriously able to swiftly end fights with just one attack. Fittingly, he can do this to your party when you try to defeat him in order to claim his summon materia. - Claire Jackson Read More

One of the most interesting characters you can meet in Dragon’s Dogma 2 is Wilhelmina. As the proprietress of the Rose Chateau in Vernworth, she knows a lot of secrets about the other citizens dwelling within Capcom’s action RPG. She is also one of the game’s romanceable characters, but to see her whole story and win her heart, you’ll need to complete the quest Every Rose Has Its Thorn. That is, if you can trigger the quest to begin with. Here’s exactly how to start (and complete) Every Rose Has Its Thorn. - Willa Rowe Read More

There are myriad side quests in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Many of them require you to channel your inner Sherlock Holmes, as Capcom’s latest high-fantasy RPG doesn’t always like showing you how to complete missions. One such quest is “Prey for the Pack,” which has an objective that demands a bit more critical thinking than you might expect. But don’t worry, here’s a quick guide on how to finish that mission. - Levi Winslow Read More

Dragon’s Dogma 2’s pawns are your loyal companions, your classic RPG party, and also a health hazard thanks to the Dragonsplague illness that can result in the deaths of entire towns. They’re also a chatty bunch, constantly peppering your journey with banter, lore drops, and jokes as you run from one side of the map to the other. While those conversations can be helpful, as they offer you exposition and advice along the way, they can also get real repetitive and annoying. Have you ever felt like shutting them up for good? Well, good news: There’s a mod for that. - Kenneth Shepard Read More
