Elden Ring Mod Pits Malenia Against Every Other Boss

An Elden Ring mod is pitting one of the game's most infamous bosses, Malenia, Blade of Miquella, against every other major boss in the game.

YouTube user Garden of Eyes - who also modded legendary summon Let Me Solo Her into Elden Ring and gave Bloodborne a first person mode - uploaded a video of Malenia taking on 25 other bosses.

The fights can be watched as if from one of Elden Ring's suspicious colosseums through a spectator camera, with Malenia starting with Grafted Scion before later...

PS5 VRR Update – Performance Review

Variable Rate Refresh has been one of the most requested features on the PlayStation 5 since it launched nearly two years ago. Sony has now resolved that, finally rolling out VRR to PS5 consoles, allowing players with a compatible TV or monitor to activate the feature in potentially any PS5 game. There’s a short list of games that will receive a patch enabling VRR support in the coming weeks, but you can turn it on for unsupported games as well – just know that those without official...

Final Fantasy 14 Is Cracking Down On Players Who Use Mods

A Final Fantasy 14 streamer was jailed in-game, banned for ten days, and got a week's suspension on Twitch for using mods in the MMO, amid a seeming crackdown on their use.

As reported by Polygon, Twitch user Bagel Goose was streaming Final Fantasy 14 with mods active (that altered his own visuals without affecting other players) when his character was teleported to an in-game jail to face judgement from a moderator.

Various mods have been created to alter the players' HUD and make things like...

Elden Ring's mightiest hero, Let Me Solo Her has now defeated Malenia, Blade of Miquella 1,000 times – and shared his glory with fans by livestreaming the milestone on YouTube.

Despite being considered one of Elden Ring's toughest bosses, with various strategies to defeat Malenia rising and falling, one increasingly guaranteed way to win the fight is by summoning Let Me Solo Her.

LEGO’s Horizon Tallneck Set Is Impressively Tall and Fun to Build

Between both of Aloy’s Horizon journeys, I’ve spent dozens of hours meticulously dismantling robotic foes big and small. Scanning for weakpoints, learning what parts make those creatures tick - and which parts will make them go boom - is one of the most thrilling aspects of Horizon Zero Dawn and Horizon Forbidden West.

So I gained a bit of newfound appreciation for these virtual technical marvels as, rather than tearing one apart, I got to construct one with PlayStation and LEGO’s...

Salt and Sacrifice Review

I really wanted to love Salt and Sacrifice, and for a little while, I did. As the sequel to one of my favorite soulslikes, Salt and Sanctuary, it hit all of the buttons I had hoped it would: challenging combat, a huge variety of grotesque and intimidating enemies, fun boss fights, and an expansive world to explore. But there’s a monster-sized twist to Salt and Sacrifice’s gameplay formula: It introduces Monster Hunter-like elements, complete with repeatable boss hunts, roaming area...

Aussie Deals: Scary Good Resi Evil Prices, $120 Off AC Valhalla Complete and More!

If you're keen for a hair-raising experience, best make room in your item box for some cheap Resident Evils. Anybody who craves tense action should set their course for Resi Village. If you prefer the ol' creeping dread instead, Resi 7 will be more your bag. I'd also like to recommend the VR mod for the latter. It's proper brown undergarments stuff.

Aussie Deals: $39 Halo Infinite, Up to 90% off Sniper Elites and More!

Thank your own personal deity—possibly Zeus—it's Friday! For reasons I can't fully explain, Sniper Elite games are on sale today. Turning fascist heads into canoes hasn't really aged since the series debuted in 2005. In fact, I'd argue the 2P co-op missions of Sniper Elite 4 have made the concept twice as awesome. Speaking of, you also shouldn't go past the buddy action of Sackboy A Big Adventure for the low, low price of $59.

FTC Probing Sony's Bungie Acquisition As Gaming Merger Oversight Gets More Aggressive

The Federal Trade Commission is reportedly opening an inquiry into Sony's planned acquisition of Bungie, marking a notable ramp-up in federal oversight of gaming mergers during a period of major industry consolidation.

According to sources speaking with The Information, last week the FTC began seeking more information about the deal in an investigation that could potentially delay its closing by six months or even more. Though a closing date wasn't announced alongside the initial...

Over the course of the interview, McGregor dove right into a number of topics ranging from action figures of himself to fans who know more about the series than he does. But it is one specific side comment that made us pause.

In the interview, he praises director Deborah...
