Noritoshi Kamo Joins Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash
Noritoshi Kamo Joins Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash There’s a new, free character in Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash, as everyone has access to Noritoshi Kamo via 1.2.0. A new trailer also appeared to give us an idea of how he’ll fight in the game. The version of Noritoshi Kamo in Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash is based off his earliest appearances. As such, he wears a form of the Kyoto Jujutsu High uniform and has his longer hairstyle. As he is an archer, he is more of a ranged fighter than other characters in the game. We also get to see his Blood Manipulation and Flowing Red Scale in action in his moveset. Here’s the latest Noritoshi Kamo gameplay footage. It also hints at events in the manga and anime by pitting him against Megumi Fushiguro. https://twitter.com/BandaiNamcoSEA/status/1816300330063405158 Bandai Namco and Byking have regularly supported this Jujutsu Kaisen fighting game with both free and paid characters since its launch. For example, fellow Kyoto Jujutsu High students Mai Zen’in and Momo Nishimiya are free ones. The student versions of Satoru Gojo and Suguru Geto appeared as paid add-ons. Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash  is  available  on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC. Noritoshi Kamo is available now.

Chris ‘Kirbopher’ Niosi Steps Down as Moze in Honkai: Star Rail
Chris ‘Kirbopher’ Niosi Steps Down as Moze in Honkai: Star Rail Chris “Kirbopher” Niosi announced he will no longer appear as Moze in Honkai: Star Rail . There’s no information as to who will replace him as the new character . You can read the entire letter via Niosi’s Twitter (X) account. In the statement, he stated that he told his agent to inform miHoYo that he would step back from being the voice actor for Moze in Honkai: Star Rail . This is due to the “undue pain” he would cause for so many people, including his past victims. He noted that none of his actions “have ever been criminal” and that he’s “worked in the industry without incident for the past few years.” However, he has “more work to do before the public feels comfortable” with him appearing in such a major property. He also requested that people not harass voice actors who have supported him since the announcement. These includes Kyle McCarley, Adin Rudd (SAM), and Griffin Puatu (Sunday). At the end of the letter, Niosi stated that he plans to continue therapy and to learn from the past. https://twitter.com/Kirbopher/status/1816268335887389076 In July 2019 , Niosi’s ex-girlfriend accused him of emotional abuse, as well as sexually manipulative behavior. Several other ex-girlfriends and colleagues came out after this blog post to corroborate these allegations, as well as share their own horror stories. He made an apology on his Tumblr blog , though it's not there anymore. At the time, Nintendo removed him from his role as Byleth in Fire Emblem: Three Houses , on top of him breaking his NDA. Niosi’s reveal as Moze in Honkai: Star Rail came at a time when people were viewing HoYoVerse with a more critical lens due to the Natlan reveal in Genshin Impact . This is not the first time that a voice actor in a HoYoVerse game stepped down or was removed from a role. Oz’s Chinese voice actor in Genshin Impact committed adultery with fans a month into his marriage. miHoYo removed him at the time, causing Fischl to disappear for a bit in the early months of the game. The company also dismissed Elliot Gindi, Tighnari’s English voice actor in the same game, after allegations arose of grooming and predatory behavior towards minors in his Discord server. Honkai: Star Rail is readily available on the PS5, Windows PC, and mobile devices. As Chris Niosi is no longer the English voice actor for Moze in Honkai: Star Rail , we will need to wait for the company to reveal his replacement.

How to get Jean’s Envisaged Echoes in Genshin Impact
How to get Jean’s Envisaged Echoes in Genshin Impact Genshin Impact has cosmetic particle effects that trail behind your characters, but you’ll need to pass a test to unlock them. Here’s how to get Jean’s Envisaged Echo effect in Genshin Impact , from unlocking her stage to adjusting her build. Unlock Jean’s Envisaged Echoes challenge First off, in order to participate in her challenge, your Jean must be at least level 90 and Friendship level 8 . Once you’ve confirmed that your character meets the requirements, unlock Jean’s challenge stage using two Keys of Echoes. You will receive two Keys when you first unlock Envisaged Echoes, and you can get an additional key every month when the Imaginarium Theater cycle resets. Strategies for Jean's Envisaged Echoes challenges Jean’s Envisaged Echoes challenge tasks you with protecting a central pile of goods from a group of Treasure Hoarders. They spawn in a few at a time and you must defeat 15 Treasure Hoarders in order to complete the challenge. The best way to beat the stage is to throw the Treasure Hoarders out of the windows. You can do this by holding Jean’s Skill to suck enemies in, move your camera to point them at a window, then release her Skill to throw them towards it. Once enemies fall from the windows, they’re considered defeated. If your Skill is on cooldown, you can use a Charged Attack to knock enemies into the air and temporarily incapacitate them. This will buy you some time until you can use your Skill again. You will also need to stay alive. Not only can the Treasure Hoarders deal damage to you, the stage itself will deal Pyro damage to you at intervals. Use Jean’s Burst and stand in it to heal yourself and remove the Pyro status from you. Screenshot by Destructoid Best Jean build for Envisaged Echoes in Genshin Impact Your Jean may be level 90 with a great build, but your build may not work well for Envisaged Echoes. For one, Jean doesn’t have a whole team to benefit from her artifact buffs and provide her with Energy. Jean is the only character you have. You should adjust your build to suit the unique challenge objectives. I recommend building as much Energy Recharge as possible so that Jean can use her Burst as needed. I completed the challenge with about 200% Energy Recharge. Set bonuses don’t matter. Just sort your artifacts by their Energy Recharge stat and equip whatever has the most. As for weapons, Sacrificial Sword is helpful, since it allows Jean to cast her Skill more often. If you don’t have a Sacrificial Sword, use any Sword that provides Energy, like Favonius Sword, Fleuve Cendre Ferryman , Amenoma Kageuchi, or Skyrider Sword. It’s okay if your weapon isn’t fully leveled. Remember that the goal is not to deal damage, just stay alive and throw enemies out of windows. Jean just needs to be able to cast her Skill and Burst as often as possible. Your 4pc Viridescent Venerer or Noblesse Oblige artifact sets won’t help you, so you should swap them out for artifacts that will. Screenshot by Destructoid How to equip an Echo in Genshin IMpact Equip Jean’s Echo effect by going to her character page and selecting “Dressing Room” in the bottom right corner. Here, you can change Jean’s outfit, wind glider, and Echo. Navigate to the Echo tab and select “Equip” in the bottom right corner. Now, whenever Jean walks or runs anywhere in Teyvat, she will leave behind a trail of floating dandelion seeds. Enjoy your fancy Envisaged Echo effect!

Shadows of the Damned Remaster Release Date Set
Shadows of the Damned Remaster Release Date Set The remaster of Shadows of the Damned has a release date , confirmed platforms, and a full official title. Now subtitled Hella Remastered , the game will release on October 31, 2024 for all major platforms. Grasshopper Manufacture revealed the release date in a new trailer for Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered . In addition, the trailer revealed a number of new features for the remaster, including a New Game+ mode, plus 60fps and 4K support. The trailer also showed off four new costumes for protagonist Garcia Hotspur, including shirtless skin Placia Garcia and demonic skin Demonio Garcia, plus two deep cut references to other Grasshopper properties connected to the original game. Ocha Corazones is based on a character from a fictional sequel referenced in Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes . The final costume, Kamikaze Garcia, is based on a character from the manga Kurayami Dance , which was based on early concepts of Shadows of the Damned . https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwpT42plQiI Shadows of the Damned originally released in 2011 for PS3 and Xbox 360. As the latest trailer makes repeatedly clear, it was a collaboration between Suda51 and Shinji Mikami, and featured concept art by Tadayuki Nomaru and enemy designs by Q Hayashida. It also featured music from Silent Hill composer Akira Yamaoka. A remaster for Shadows of the Damned was announced at a Grasshopper presentation in June 2023, although the release date is the first we’ve heard more about it since. However, it shouldn’t be long until we hear more. Among the many titles given to Suda and Mikami in the trailer was “Gamescom 2024 Attendee”, suggesting we’ll see more of the game in Germany in August 2024. Shadows of the Damned: Hella Remastered will release on October 31, 2024, for PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch.

Helldivers 2 dispatch pokes fun at the CrowdStrike update fumble
Helldivers 2 dispatch pokes fun at the CrowdStrike update fumble American cybersecurity company CrowdStrike recently pushed an update to its software that caused business systems worldwide to crash. Ultimately, the issue was caused by a lack of proper testing , but it caused havoc for some time. According to a recent in-game dispatch, the problem even seems to have reached Super Earth's computers in Helldivers 2 . The dispatch in question is hilarious and pokes fun at the whole CrowdStrike update fumble perfectly. "A cybersecurity software update has caused an unexpected outage for all Destroyer surveillance systems. All personnel are ordered to manually record their own behavior until service is restored." Of course, Super Earth's main priority is maintaining managed democracy, so I'm sure a few dissenters happily handed themselves in after the outage was rectified. Turn it off and on again until it works Sceenshot by Destructoid But there's more. Following up the message above were the best instructions I've ever seen for bringing a computer back online. "Instructions to Service Technicians: To bring systems back online, please manually reboot each affected computer 15 times." I saw reports of some businesses needing to delete certain system files, but bashing the on button 15 times is a much more Helldivers 2 way to fix a problem. The Helldiveres 2 community has lovingly referred to the incident as " Super Windows " on the game's subreddit. User Finbarrgalloway pointed out an interesting link that shows Microsoft's software is still being used in this fictional future, which is probably why CrowdStrike's update impacted Super Earth. "The terminals do mention .sys files when you boot them so Super Earth does canonically run on Windows." User B33rski pointed out something I'd also wish we'd seen. "I assumed this was the crowd strike joke. I was hoping it would affect our strat game on the ship!" While it would be complete chaos, it would have been very funny to have our Stratagems mess up or stop working for 24 hours following CrowdStrike's update deployment. While this dispatch is obviously just meant to be a fun little nod to the real-world incident. "Definite CrowdStrike reference. One of the solutions is to reboot the affected system 15 times, as it would be enough time between errors to download the update that removes the file causing the issue." There's a large thread with this comment of users debating how the update could be worked around by just turning your computer on and off again in rapid succession. It seems to work in Helldivers 2 , so that's good enough for me. This is the first time that developer Arrowhead Game Studios has so obviously referenced a real-world event in Helldivers 2 . We've had phishing scams from the Automatons and live-action movies , but we've never had an event so quickly translated to the game. The reaction from fans has been fantastic because everyone instantly gets what this cybersecurity issue is about and is leaning into it even more. Provided the developer sticks to lighter topics, I'd love to see more dispatches like this adding flavor to the galaxy.
