Everything was going well until that damn train stopped me. My crew and I had just knocked over a Payday Loan joint. I didn't feel bad; those guys are the real crooks anyway. But now we were stuck, and the police were bearing down on us. I hit the gas, but it didn't matter. They were catching up. 

As we raced through the winding highways outside of Santo Ileso, I went on the offensive, sideswiping the pursuing cop cars and running them off the road in what I’m sure were very safe fiery explosions. 

I tried to switch cars, but another gang had stripped my backup ride, so I parted with my companions and made an off-road escape on a dirtbike. It's a tactic that almost worked — until my path took me right into a police roadblock and some very effective spike strips.

As the fuzz closed in and all seemed lost, my accomplice Neenah showed up in a car, jumped it to the top of a billboard, and brought the giant sign down like a flyswatter onto the bewildered cops below. Splat. 

It was a move almost too ridiculous for even a Fast and the Furious movie. It was stunning, absurd, and precisely the tone-setter I needed for my hands-on preview of the upcoming Saints Row

The initial reaction to the Saints Row reboot trailer was lukewarm at best. But it’s hard to get a sense of tone or scope from just a few minutes of video. With that in mind, I was interested in getting my hands on a playable build at a recent preview event in Las Vegas. I wanted to see what this new chapter in the Saints saga was all about.

As I played through the intro — which I won’t spoil — the art style stood out immediately. Things look clean and realistic, but with exaggerated colors and visual pops instead of highly detailed textures. It's a sort of middle ground between the hyper-realism of Grand Theft Auto and the more cartoonish look of Fortnite

I started in a small apartment with the new Saints, all with their own unique skills and interests that a burgeoning criminal enterprise needs, be it driving, finance, or just good old-fashioned muscle. They are a personable group, especially The Boss, and even in my short time with the game, I found myself invested in the characters as we tried to create a name for ourselves in Santo Ileso. 

The main story missions I saw were full of dramatic set pieces, like a high-speed convoy chase or a visit to a rave that ended with me attaching a tow cable from my car to a shipping container and swinging it like a flail to obliterate the fluorescent dune buggies in pursuit. It’s as ridiculous as it sounds and entertaining as hell.

After a few story missions, I decided to see what side quests are available in Saints Row. In short order, I was picking up dropped drug crates, dumpster diving for lost treasure, and stealing things from a helicopter to make extra cash. I bought a nice big machete and sombrero with my ill-earned money, and the vast number of shops around town indicate a lot of variety for your loadoutsAt one point, I was leaving a bad review on the in-game version of yelp, which naturally ended in violence.

Shooting guns feels about the same as any third-person action game, and swinging my machete was satisfying. Over time, you build a meter through attacks and kills that lets you execute a takedown animation, instantly eliminating most enemies and refilling your health, similarly rewarding aggressive gameplay like Doom.

Santo Ileso itself feels very alive. The neighborhoods and districts I drove through were distinct, with cars and people that varied to match the area. Residents milled about, visited shops, and generally behaved in a manner that felt natural. At one point, I found myself just sitting and watching a group light fireworks, basking in the colorful bursts of light.

I couldn’t let the peace last for too long — this is Saints Row, after all. As my playtime neared its end, I did what any person in an open-world game inevitably does; I started creating as much mayhem as humanly possible. I began by crashing into a fuel container truck. I jumped out of my car and filled the massive fuel tank with machine gun fire until it erupted in a very satisfying fireball. 

Unsurprisingly, it caught the attention of local law enforcement. The first car deployed a pair of officers. One charged me but met the business ends of my fists. The other didn’t want any part of that action and fled to call in reinforcements. I could have tried to stop them from getting the call through (there is a small meter that fills, indicating the progress of a backup call), but I wanted to see how far things would go. More police arrived, and a high-speed chase ensued when I stole a nearby car. I took out a few cruisers with carefully-timed sideswipes, and my Wanted level increased. 

As I sped along to create more chaos, the growing number of pursuers started setting up roadblocks. I decided to fight my way out on foot, using a rocket launcher to clear the SWAT teams trying to box me in with their riot shields. My fight didn’t end until I finally pissed off the authorities enough for them to send in a fully loaded tank, and the machine guns and cannon brought me down in a blaze of glory.

There is a lot to like in what I played of Saints Row. It looks and plays well, and the variety of action and set pieces kept me well entertained. It’s a crowded genre with some heavy hitters. Still, the bombastic action and engaging characters might be just what this reboot needs to stand out and reestablish the Saints as a group to be reckoned with when it releases on August 23, 2022, for PlayStation, Xbox, PC, and Google Stadia. 

Goat Simulator 3 Brings Udder Chaos to PC, PlayStation, and Xbox This Fall Fri, 10 Jun 2022 13:27:59 -0400 Jonathan Moore

Here we goat again. Pilgor the goat will be back to her antics once more when Goat Simulator 3 launches later this fall for PC via Epic Games, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S. The sequel to 2014's Goat Simulator hoofs it right past Part 2 in expectedly cheeky fashion, bringing chaos to the island of San Angora. The game was announced during the 2022 Summer Games Fest by way of a cinematic trailer full of explosions, jetpacks, car crashes, and, of course, plenty of headbutting. 

Upping the ante, Goat Simulator 3 will feature 4-player local and online co-op at launch. According to developer Coffee Stain Studios, you'll be able wreak havoc in the game's sandbox, as well as go head-to-head in seven different minigames (though those haven't been revealed just yet). 

Just as in the original game, there will be plenty to uncover across San Angora, as well, with collectibles, secrets, and quests aplenty. You'll also be able to customize Pilgor's "head, back, feet, body, horns and furs with over 300 different gear parts to choose from, from toilet rolls to tea tray and other actual clothing items ... [and] some gear parts will mutate your playstyle by giving you new abilities."

Pre-orders are available from certain retailers, such as Target, which lists the game's release date as November 11, 2022. That date isn't confirmed by Coffee Stain and could just be a place holder, though it would put Goat Simulator 3 on the tail end of its "Fall 2022" release window. Those who pre-order the Pre-Udder edition will receive extra in-game gear, though what that is hasn't yet been detailed, either. 

Stay tuned for more, and check out the trailer at the top of this article to see Goat Simulator 3 in action. 

Jurassic World Evolution 2 Review: Climbing the Evolutionary Ladder Tue, 07 Dec 2021 10:20:14 -0500 Jonathan Moore

The law of diminishing returns dictates that no Jurassic Park IP can be as good as the one that came before it (JP3 to Jurassic World aside). Even Michael Crichton's Lost World isn't as popular as the book that started it all. But Frontier Development's Jurassic World Evolution 2 chomps that law in two. It's bigger, smarter, and stronger than its predecessor in almost every way.

Evolved and synthesized from the embryonic DNA of Jurassic World Evolution, this new breed of prehistoric park management sim cleverly recognizes its past, present, and future in equal measure. Doing so takes the franchise to new heights while creating the dino sandbox fans have always wanted. 

It's not perfect. There's still more for Frontier Developments to unearth in future sequels should they choose to make them. But Jurassic World Evolution 2 is, right now, the true Indominus Rex. 

Jurassic World Evolution 2 Review: Climbing the Evolutionary Ladder

At its core, Jurassic World Evolution 2 is still very much a park management game about breeding dinosaurs and raking in the profit, all while keeping park goers from getting eaten by an Allosaurus or Velociraptor. 

You begin most scenarios with a few buildings and a little bit of infrastructure — a park entrance, a command center, a few enclosures, and some walkways — before being set loose. You'll add more enclosures and more dinosaurs to increase your park appeal and rating as you build. This loop attracts more tourists to the feeding ground and raises more money for expansion.

Unlike in JWE, you can now hire a team of scientists that can be assigned to various tasks like medical research, fossil excavation, dinosaur synthesis, and treating major dino injuries like broken bones

Adding a wrinkle to it all, each scientist has specific traits that make them more or less efficient at these tasks, and many jobs require a combination of scientists to complete. You'll have to decide what duties take priority, hiring and firing scientists to get the right mixture of stats. Be sure to let them rest, though, lest they become disgruntled and sabotage your park. 

Alongside these workers, you'll also have rangers who keep track of dino needs, refill feeders, and tranquilize any dinosaurs that escape or need to be transported. Additional medical personnel can diagnose diseases and injuries in the field and treat them there. It is, admittedly, a bit odd that medical staff themselves can't treat severe injuries, but scientists can. Que sera sera. 

The main attraction for any game about dinosaurs is, well, the dinosaurs themselves. There are 84 total: 79 in the base game and five as part of the Deluxe Edition. Four more are coming in the Early Cretaceous Pack DLC on December 9. 

Most exciting is the inclusion of flying dinosaurs and aquatic reptiles; Jurassic World Evolution feels categorically empty in comparison once you can build an aviary for Pteranodons or a lagoon (complete with shark feeders) for a Mosasaur here. 

As before, dinosaurs have specific needs that must be met. Some require more open space; others need forest or ground cover. Still, others need sand instead of grass, live animal feeders, or a specific population density to flourish. 

Cohabitation likes and dislikes factor into dinosaur comfort, too, though the system can be frustrating since some are just plain wrong (carnivores of all types may like Compsognathus but apparently only as a snack). Territory, too, feels a bit half-baked, mostly leading to confusion until you understand it and disregard it thereafter. 

Despite that, attending to these needs is important because angry dinosaurs fight each other or break out of their enclosures, tying up scientists unduly or lowering your park appeal, rating, and income. 

Fortunately, dino-watching isn't your only source of money. As in almost any other park sim, you can set up shops and attractions to sell goods and services to park-goers. The system here isn't as in-depth as elsewhere, but it's an improvement over Jurassic World Evolution, adding an appreciated layer of strategy.

You can now monitor what park-goers want and adjust shops to meet demand. It's also possible to add mini-attractions like fish tanks and karaoke bars inside shops and restaurants to draw in different types of patrons. 

Making sense of these moving parts is made easier than before with more in-depth stat screens, giving you a better look at how parts of your park are performing in real-time, as well as every month. 

All of this happens in one of four modes: Campaign, Challenge, Chaos Theory, and Sandbox.

In the Campaign mode, which is primarily a glorified tutorial (and a backdoor advertisement for the upcoming Jurassic World: Dominion), you're put through five scenarios in the wake of Jurassic World 2: Fallen Kingdom. Most task you with capturing escaped dinosaurs or retrofitting old containment facilities as new sanctuaries alongside the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Since it's all government work, these pseudo-parks are filled with scientists and various bureaucratic personnel instead of tourists. Consequently, none of the guest management mechanics, attractions, or rides are found in this mode. Considering the campaign doesn't really move the needle forward narratively, it ultimately feels like a second-rate, if fun, diversion to JWE 2's other offerings.

The real meat of Jurassic World Evolution 2 is found in its Challenge and Chaos Theory modes. In these modes, you'll actually build a functioning park that can be opened to tourists.

Challenge mode is exactly what it says on the tin. It asks you to complete various timed challenges across a wide selection of unlockable maps. Most challenges deal with breeding certain dinosaurs in a certain order or increasing your overall park appeal with various additions. To make things more interesting, though, there are three difficulties (bronze, silver, and gold) to choose from that further test your park management skills by making scientists less effective or increasing the intensity of storms.

However, perhaps the most compelling mode in Jurassic World Evolution 2 is Chaos Theory mode. Here, you're able to relive key moments from the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies, putting your own spin on how things really happened. There's nothing like aiding John Hammond in opening the first Jurassic Park, and these scenarios will delight any fan of the franchise. 

Unfortunately, if you were hoping to jump straight into Sandbox mode, which is available from the start, there's a bit of bad news. In what can only be spun as an effort to push players toward Jurassic World Evolution 2's other modes first, Frontier hides nearly everything in Sandbox mode behind research unlocked elsewhere.

Everything from dinosaurs and infrastructure to attractions and rides must first be researched in either Campaign mode, Challenge mode, or Chaos Theory mode. Even extra maps are unlocked elsewhere. The decision might be good-intentioned, but it renders Sandbox initially inert. And by the time you've gained access to everything in Sandbox, you may be ready to leave the park anyway. 

Since it launched in 2018, Jurassic World Evolution has received quite a few updates; jumping into it now feels completely different than doing so three years ago. Yet despite those improvements, it's still a slow, plodding experience filled with some quirky, immersion-breaking decisions. 

For the most part, Jurassic World Evolution 2 has cleared that up. Immediately apparent is how quickly things get going. That's mostly thanks to JWE 2's inclusion of speed options a la' Cities Skylines or Two Point Hospital. It cannot be overstated how this single system completely changes the feel of Jurassic World Evolution 2 for the better. 

Another small but meaningful change is that herbivores no longer need feeders to eat. Painting enclosures with trees, ground fiber, and fruit as food sources feels much more natural and immersive than placing a trap-door feeder that pops up a munchable tree. 

Contracts make a return, but they're thankfully less soldier-of-fortune and more corporate-science-for-profit. Instead of putting different members of InGen at odds with one another and forcing you to weirdly choose sides for points, contracts in Jurassic World Evolution 2 are less aggressive, less gamified, and more in line with the overall tone of the franchise. 

Jurassic World Evolution 2 Review — The Bottom Line


  • Flying dinosaurs
  • Aquatic dinosaurs
  • New enclosures
  • Herbivores don't need feeders
  • Improved management statistics
  • Improved UI
  • Chaos Theory mode
  • Speed options
  • Scientists


  • Lackluster Campaign mode
  • Some shaky voice-over in places
  • Too micromange-y at times
  • Some collision detection issues with buildings
  • Locks everything for Sandbox mode in other modes

In both Chrichton's novel and Steven Spielberg's film, John Hammond wanted to create a wonder of the modern world where past and present converge to inspire awe and childlike wonder. After years of work, the product was the eponymous park that, for a time, achieved that goal. Until chaos came crashing through the gates. 

With Jurassic World Evolution 2, Frontier Developments has, like Hammond, spent the years between Jurassic World Evolution and JWE 2 refining their formula. They've taken community feedback to heart and instilled the DNA that should have been there from the start into this sequel. 

There are still things to tweak and lessons to be learned. Collision detection can still be an issue, especially in aviaries, and clicking on buildings doesn't always register to bring up their menus. Things can get a bit mircomange-y when your park gets large enough, too. Treating E. Coli outbreaks while a blizzard rages and Stegasauruses destroy their enclosure can be a maddening turn of rapid-fire events.

But perhaps as well as anyone, Frontier realizes Hammond’s dream and that of those who have grown up dumbstruck by dinosaurs. With a fun and addicting gameplay loop alongside meaningful changes, Jurassic World Evolution 2 gets my endorsement.

Roblox A Universal Time: AUT Best Stands Tier List Tue, 07 Sep 2021 11:59:38 -0400 Sergey_3847

A Universal Time, also known as AUT in Roblox, has a new update with a rebalanced meta for both PvE and PvP. If you want to stay relevant, then you should stay up to date on the best stands in Roblox: A Universal Time.

Some of the characters managed to keep their high rating, but others have been nerfed significantly, so there is no point in upgrading them unless you want to simply play your favorite stand once again.

S-Tier Stands


Gaster from Undertale is the definition of a deadly character that can be equally effective in both PvE and PvP.

His Hand Summon ability is what you want. It allows you to summon seven hands that punch enemies all at the same time making them explode at the end of the attack.

If you want to reach a specific target, then use Patience Rope that grabs enemies or transports you to them.

He can also heal himself and his allies by 50 HP, which can be quite useful.


This is a beatdown character that does only one thing: deals a lot of damage. But that's not why you want Gojo, it's the low cooldown times that make him such an appealing stand.

His LMB Combo attack has only 0.5s cooldown, which is almost unnoticeable, allowing you to reach as much as 25 points of damage per hit.

Gojo also has an Instant Teleport ability that has no cooldown times at all. You can freely move around the arenas and deal damage in extremely fast and efficient ways.


This stand is especially interesting due to her Timestop and Killing Doll ability.

The first one allows time to slow down, allowing you to deal precise hits or dodges. While the second one shoots a barrage of knives at the target enemy, dealing up to 90 points of damage.

The knives on the last move have a wide range, which may serve as a type of AoE, and the damage is really high with relatively low cooldown of only 10s.

A-Tier Stands


Goku is not a typical character in terms of movesets due to his shapeshifting skill called Ki, where each of the nine forms has its own strengths and weaknesses.

For example, his Ultra Instinct form is almost game winning on its own, but if you play with his Spirit Bomb, then you'll get seriously punished. It takes a lot of skill to master Goku and his forms, but he definitely can be very powerful.


This stand may not have as low cooldowns as Gojo, but his damage output is pretty much the same. Additionally, almost all of his attacks deal bleed damage, which compensates for slightly higher cooldown times.

His three best moves are Leash Slash, Gnash Slash, and Flash Slash. Each of these attacks can deal up to 50 points of damage, which is on par with Gaster, the current top-tier character.

The World Over Heaven (TWOH)

TWOH is infamous for his combos that are hard to dodge or avoid by any means.

His LMB Combo involves left kick, right kick, left punch, and a stomp. The combo happens so fast that many can't do anything about it and receive over 50 points of damage in the process.

B-Tier Stands


Speaking of dodging combos, Sans is exactly the character you need, if you want to avoid hits.

His Bone Guard and HEH moves allow Sans to suspend all enemies in the air in the first case, or to teleport behind their backs in the second case.

There is also Bait that distracts enemies from catching up with you. All his moves are truly unique, but all of them have high learning curve.

Shadow The World Requiem (STWR)

This stand combines heavy physical damage and energy projectiles.

Use his Shadow Barrage move to hit a target enemy with a series of quick strikes and the final punch that together deal 62 points of damage.

His Shadow's Energy projectile serves as an AoE that strikes everyone within the range. The best part about it is that you can charge it up for some time to deal even more damage, but this will also leave you defenseless for some time.

King Crimson

King Crimson is a decent character that has some good attacks, but his most distinctive feature is the King Crimson Disguise ability.

This move allows you to temporarily take on a totally different persona, including your username on the server. This will completely puzzle your enemies, for totally understandable reasons!

Pick him up if you want to play funny games with your server buddies.

Those are the best stands in Roblox: A Universal Time. For more tier list guides and other Roblox related articles, check out our dedicated hub page.

How to Get Emerald Tycoon Map in Minecraft

Step 1: Go to the Marketplace

You need to launch your Minecraft Bedrock client and select the Marketplace option.

Step 2: Search for Emerald Tycoon

You may not be able to see the Emerald Tycoon option in the main Marketplace menu, so you'll need to search for it manually:

  1. Click on the "Search" button in the top right corner of the screen
  2. Type in "Emerald Tycoon" in the search bar

  4. Wait for the download to complete

Step 4: Play Emerald Tycoon

When the download and import is over, you need to tap the "Create This World!" button to start playing the Emerald Tycoon map.

If you get an error and you can't load the map, it means that you need to update your Minecraft Bedrock edition to the latest version:

  1. Go to Microsoft Store app
  2. Tap on the "..."(three dots) in the top right corner
  3. Choose "Get Updates" option
  4. Wait for the update to complete

Once this is done, your Minecraft Bedrock edition will be updated to the latest version. When you start the Emerald Tycoon map again, it should work perfectly well.

How to Play Emerald Tycoon in Minecraft

Emerald Tycoon allows players to play the storyline and free roam the open world using all the new features presented in this map, including:

  • Mining and collecting emeralds
  • Upgrading emerald generators
  • Surviving mob arenas
  • Rebuilding villages
  • Unlocking new areas, mounts and special items

If you want to complete the story, then the best way to start the game would be the following:

  1. As soon as you spawn, press the big Play button
  2. Follow the green sparkles on the ground
  3. Arrive at the Woodchopper's hut
  4. Open his chest for your first batch of emeralds
  5. Travel to the mineshaft and open the chest there
  6. Move to the arena and fight zombies for more emeralds
  7. Use emeralds to upgrade Resource Stations

This is your basic cycle that you need to repeat in order to fully upgrade all the required points from the storyline, such as the Lumberjack, Stone Quarry, Blacksmith, Farm, and many others.

All these resources are required for you to rebuild the old dilapidated village. It includes towers, temple, village huts, and many other structures.

All these areas require emeralds, so you need to be able to quickly farm a huge amount of emeralds. The best area to do this is the Arena, where you can kill as many zombies as you want, and they can give you a hefty amount of emeralds relatively quickly.

Each dead zombie gives you 10x Emeralds, and these spawn infinitely in waves. You can make several hundred emeralds in just a few minutes if you don't get hit too often, which is enough to upgrade one station.

Once you have all stations fully upgraded, you will receive a special trophy and achievement for all your hard work.

That's all you need to know about the new free Emerald Tycoon map for Minecraft Bedrock edition. For more Minecraft guides, check out our dedicated hub page. If you were looking for Minecraft seeds, head over to this page.

How to Get Prismatic Jelly in Stardew Valley Thu, 26 Aug 2021 11:13:25 -0400 Gavin Burtt

If you've been keeping an eye on the Special Orders Board in Stardew Valley, you may find yourself searching for some Prismatic Jelly to give the Wizard. Prismatic Jelly is an item that was added in Patch 1.5 earlier this year.

Prismatic Jelly is dropped by the rare Prismatic Slime. This guide will cover where to find these slimes and get yourself some Prismatic Jelly.

Similar to Ectoplasm, which is dropped by ghosts, Prismatic Jelly can only be obtained when the special order is active. The item serves no purpose other than to turn in to Rasmodius for a 5000 gold reward, plus either the Monster Musk recipe or Mini-Obelisk recipe.

Stardew Valley: Where to Find Prismatic Jelly

When you take on the special order, you will have seven days to find the Prismatic Jelly and bring it to the Wizard for the reward. The jelly will disappear after the order is complete, so there is no reason to collect more than the one. It is possible to get this same quest twice, but you'd have to recollect the jelly the next time anyway.

To get Prismatic Jelly, you're going to need to collect a Prismatic Slime. You haven't seen any of these up to this point, as they can only spawn when this quest is active.

Any time a Slime spawns, there is a small chance that it can instead spawn as a Prismatic Slime. A Slime has a roughly 1.2% chance of spawning as a Prismatic Slime, and daily luck can play a factor. They can spawn in the Mines, Skull Cavern, or the Quarry Mine.

They appear as the same shape as a regular Slime, but with a constantly changing color, and when killed, they have a 100% chance of dropping Prismatic Jelly.

The best place to search is between floors 95 and 115 in the Mines, as these levels are where the most Slimes will spawn. If you're having trouble finding one, make sure you are playing at the maximum resolution, as zoomed out as you can, such that you can scout large areas more.

While it can be kind of annoying to find due to the luck involved, seven days should be more than enough time to stumble upon a single Prismatic Slime as long as you take the time to delve to get it.

That's it for how to get Prismatic Jelly in Stardew Valley. Check out our other Stardew Valley guides here on GameSkinny.

Roblox Wacky Wizards Sunflower Location Wed, 25 Aug 2021 12:17:20 -0400 Sergey_3847

Sunflower is a new essential ingredient in Roblox Wacky Wizards that allows players to brew honey. This delicious substance requires four types of flower pollen, but sunflower is the hardest one to get. Our guide will explain in a few easy steps how to find sunflower in Roblox Wacky Wizards.

Before venturing into the unknown, you need to be able to disguise yourself and obtain a new type of power that will allow you to get the sunflower pollen. Read our guide below for more details on this.

How to Find Sunflower in Roblox Wacky Wizards

Sunflower grows on top of the roof of a house that is well hidden inside one of the caves in the mountain.

The cave is located right behind the tree with the beehive (as shown on the screenshot above). But the cave is blocked, which makes it impossible to enter by ordinary means.

However, you can enter the cave from above, as there is a crack on top of the mountain. In order to enter the cave you need to follow these steps:

  1. Approach the tree with the beehive
  2. Interact with the beehive to awaken a sleepy bee
  3. Take the bee to the cauldron
  4. Use it to brew a transformation potion
  5. Drink the potion to turn yourself into a bee
  6. Fly right above the cave and enter the crack in the mountain
  7. Interact with the sunflower to collect pollen

Now, you can go back to the tree with the beehive and enter the tree through the trunk in your bee form. You can speak to the Bee Queen and collect the four other ingredients, such as cactus, lava flower, field daisy and water lily.

When all five flowers are combined in the beehive, you will be able to obtain the honey ingredient for your new potions.

That's all you need to know about the sunflower location in Roblox Wacky Wizards. Be sure to come back soon for more guides and other Roblox related articles.

How to Get Ectoplasm in Stardew Valley Tue, 24 Aug 2021 13:08:45 -0400 Gavin Burtt

In your first fall of Stardew Valley, you will unlock the Special Orders Board, where you may see an advertisement posted by the Wizard, M. Rasmodius, requesting an "an extremely rare and powerful goop, known as 'ectoplasm'."

Fulfilling the Wizard's request will get you a reward: 2500g, plus a Mini-Obelisk recipe. This guide will take you through the steps needed to find and deliver this ectoplasm.

Stardew Valley: How to Get Ectoplasm

The quest is called "A Curious Substance", and ectoplasm will not be an obtainable resource unless you've picked it up. Fortunately that isn't an issue, as the ectoplasm is good for nothing but this quest. Once the quest has begun, you will have seven days to collect the rare and powerful goop.

Ectoplasm, as you may have guessed, is dropped by ghosts. There are three different kinds of ghosts in this farming sim: Ghosts, Carbon Ghosts, and Putrid Ghosts.

Putrid Ghosts, which are green, are the only kind of ghost that will not drop ectoplasm. Ghosts (white) and Carbon Ghosts (blue) each have 9.5% chances of dropping some when killed.

Where to Find Ghosts in Stardew Valley

Standard Ghosts have 96 health and deal 10 base damage and are by far the easier of the two ghost types to kill, making them the go-to for ectoplasm. They can be found in the mines.

You will have to fight and mine your way to the 51st floor before you can start finding ghosts. Standard ghosts will appear all the way down to the 79th floor, meaning you should have plenty of opportunities to potentially earn ectoplasm.

Do note that if the clock strikes 2 a.m., you will be ejected from the mines and will have to return later. Thus, it's best to go in early in the day.

Where to Find Carbon Ghosts in Stardew Valley

Carbon Ghosts are more powerful, having 190 health and dealing 25 base damage. They can be found in the Skull Cavern, in the northwest area of the desert.

You will need the Skull Key, which is obtained on the final floor of the mines, on floor 120. Unless you descended the mines to that point before accepting this quest, you will likely already have ectoplasm by the time you can even find Carbon Ghosts.

If you've already done all this, then Carbon Ghosts are a good enemy to target for ectoplasm, as the loot you'll obtain along the way will be much better in the Skull Cavern.

Unlike the standard Ghosts that appear between set floors, Carbon Ghosts can simply appear on any Mummy level of the Skull Cavern, and the levels are all randomized.

There are 2147483647 caves in the Skull Cavern, quite literally the 32-bit maximum integer, so you've got plenty of opportunities to encounter Carbon Ghosts. When engaged in combat with them, use a slow high-damage weapon, as every hit will launch them several feet backward anyway.

Be careful not to let them hit you, as they will teleport to a new location after doing so. 

After you've got your ectoplasm, you're going to want to turn it in to M. Rasmodius before the quest expires after seven days. If not, all of the ectoplasm in your possession will disappear.

How to Get Pale Ale in Stardew Valley Mon, 23 Aug 2021 14:18:51 -0400 Gavin Burtt

Pale Ale is the second-most profitable of all Artisan Goods used in a Keg in Stardew Valley. You get Pale Ale by making it yourself using Hops, which takes just one to two days to create once you have the right ingredients.

Drinking the Pale Ale will give you a Tipsy buff, which reduces your speed by one for 30 seconds. Creating this drink is relatively quick and easy to do, and this guide will walk you through every step.

Stardew Valley: How to Make Pale Ale

Stardew Valley: How to Get Hops

In order to produce Pale Ale, you'll need to first gather two things: Hops and a Keg.

In order to get Hops, you will need to purchase the Hops Starter from Pierre's General Store for 60g. Alternatively, you can purchase it from JojaMart for 60g if you have a membership, or for 75g if you don't. 

Plant your starter seeds in the summer, or in the Greenhouse/on the Island Farm at any time of the year. They grow on a trellis, so be sure to leave walking space between the crops, otherwise you may not be able to water or harvest them.

On the 12th day after you plant, return to find some fully grown Hops ready to be harvested. You can now harvest more Hops every day going forward.

Stardew Valley: How to Get Kegs

To craft a Keg, you will need to be Farming Level 8, as that is when you learn the recipe. If you're already a high enough level, then go ahead and craft one using the following ingredients:

  • 30 Wood
  • One Copper Bar
  • One Iron Bar
  • One Oak Resin

If you're not Farming Level 8, you can get accumulate XP by harvesting, petting farm animals, shearing sheep, milking animals, picking up animal products, etc..

You'll need 6900 XP to reach Level 8 from scratch, but if you don't want to wait, you can try to complete the Artisan Bundle, one of the bundles in the Pantry. Filling out six items in the bundle will reward you with a Keg.

Stardew Valley: How to Age Pale Ale

With your Hops and Keg ready to go, interact with the Keg while holding the Hops to place them inside. It will take roughly a day and a half for the Hops to become Pale Ale, so just check back in a little while for your product.

If you want to increase the profit you would make, you're going to want to age it. Like all alcoholic beverages in the game, this will increase its value. This is a bit more involved as it requires a Cask.

After upgrading your house to include a nursey, talk to Robin at the Carpenter Shop and request the Cellar upgrade. This will be quite expensive, totaling 100 thousand gold, but it will come with 33 Casks.

Place Pale Ales into these Casks and leave them be for:

  • nine days to go from Base to Silver
  • 17 days to go from Base to Gold
  • 34 days to go from Base to Iridium

Aging it to Iridium quality can cause it to sell at double the price, so if you're willing to wait, it's a very effective way of making money. Iridium quality Pale Ale will sell for 600g, or 840g of you have the Artisan profession. Standard Pale Ale sells for 300g, or 420g as an Artisan.

As you can harvest your Hops every day, move them to your Kegs, then to your Casks, Pale Ale can be created on a sort of assembly line. This makes it one of the best and easiest ways to make massive profits in Stardew Valley. This isn't all the tips we have for the game, though. Check out our other Stardew Valley guides.

How to Dye Armor in Minecraft Wed, 18 Aug 2021 10:03:26 -0400 Gavin Burtt

While leather armor isn't the strongest of armor in Minecraft, it certainly looks the coolest, thanks to the ability to dye it up to 12.3 million different colors. You can create a full matching set of armor, a mismatched rainbow outfit, a gradient pattern, or whatever else you think suits you.

Whether you are playing on Java Edition or Bedrock Edition will affect what you need to do to dye your armor, but this guide will cover the methods for both versions. 

How to Dye Armor in Minecraft: Java Edition

Dying leather armor in Java Edition is very intuitive, as it is identical to the method of dying any other dyable item, such as candles, beds, or glass.

Simply take the piece of armor you'd like to dye and place it in a crafting table with a dye of your choice. You can add multiple dye colors to an armor piece to mix colors, and there is no limit to the amount you can add. You can fit up to eight dyes in the crafting table with the armor piece, but you can then put the dyed armor back into the table and add more.

If you'd like to experiment with color-mixing, you can add the dyes to the crafting table and look at the output slot for a preview of the armor. If you don't like the way it looks, don't click on the output slot, and you can continue to arrange your dyes until you get something you do like. 

If you ever change your mind about your armor color, and want to try something new without making a brand new set or throwing your current one away, you can un-dye it.

To do this, place down a cauldron and fill it with water, by interacting with it while holding a water bucket. Hold the armor that you wish to un-dye in your hand and interact with the cauldron. This will wash all of the color off, but note that you won't get your dyes back.

How to Dye Armor in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition

Dying armor in Bedrock Edition is a bit more involved than Java, as you can't simply add dyes to the armor in a crafting table.

Instead, this will require you to dye water in a cauldron, then soak your armor in it. This is more efficient, as you'll be able to dye up to three armor pieces with a single dye item. It's also a bit more risky, as you cannot "preview" the color like you can in Java. Once you add a dye, you can't take it out.

To do this, place down a cauldron and interact with it while holding a water bucket. This will fill the cauldron. Now hold a dye in your hand and interact with the cauldron to dye the water. You can do this multiple times, to mix more and more colors. Once you have a color that you like, hold the armor you wish to dye in your hand and interact with the cauldron once again.

Doing this will dye the armor, and reduce the water level of the cauldron by a third. Once you dye two more armor pieces, you will need to add new water and dye it once again, but this still significantly saves on dye over the Java Version. Un-dying is the same in this version, however. Interact with un-dyed cauldron water while holding your dyed armor. This will wash out the color.

While leather armor is Minecraft's weakest option, the ability to dye it and personalize it makes it still a great, cheap option when you aren't fighting a boss or making dangerous cave expeditions. Experiment with the color options and find what you think looks best! Check out our other Minecraft guides if you found this one useful.

Minecraft 1.17: How to Craft and Use Candles Tue, 17 Aug 2021 10:49:52 -0400 Gavin Burtt

Minecraft has no shortage of lighting methods, but the new candles added to the game have the most variety out of all the options currently available.

Added with the 1.17 Caves and Cliffs update, the long-awaited addition of candles has finally made its way to the game with 17 unique colors and four possible arrangements. In this guide, we'll show you how to craft, dye, and most importantly, how to light a candle.

How to Craft and Use Candles in Minecraft

Minecraft: How to Craft a Candle

Candles in Minecraft are fairly cheap to make, requiring only two items. You will need a single piece of string, plus a honeycomb. Place the string overtop the honeycomb in a crafting table or in your inventory to create one candle. This candle will be a mix of white and yellow in color by default.

Getting the items required to make a candle is quite simple.

String can be attained by killing spiders, who will drop between zero and five string, or by killing cats, who will drop zero to two. It can also be traded for, looted from naturally spawning chests in dungeons, mineshafts, or temples, and it can also be fished.

Honeycombs on the other hand, are gotten by shearing bees nests. Much like how honeycombs are used to wax copper blocks, it acts as the wax of the candle when crafting.

Minecraft: How to Change Candle Color

If you'd like a different color than that ugly yellowish white for your candle, then you can change it by dying it. This is done similar to how you would change firework colors, by combining any one of the 16 dye colors with the candle in a crafting table, or in your inventory.

Dyes are attained largely from flowers, which can be placed in your inventory to get a dye of that respective color. You can also smelt cacti or sea pickles in furnaces to get green and lime green dye.  

Minecraft: How to Use a Candle

Now that you know how to craft one, you now need to know how to light a candle. This is rather simple. Place a candle, then use flint and steel to light it. This will stay permanently lit unless manually extinguished, or if it comes in contact with water. A single candle will give off a light level of three, which is not enough to stop monsters from spawning, as most spawn between light levels four and seven. 

Similar to sea pickles, multiple candles can be placed on a single block, up to a maximum of four. The way their arrangement appears is dependent on the number of candles on the block, as is their light level.

Each additional candle ups the block's light level by three, up to a maximum of 12. For comparison, regular torches have light levels of 14. Extinguishing a candle is as easy as interacting with it, and destroying a candle can be done with any tool or with your bare hands, much like a torch. 

Minecraft: How to Make a Birthday Cake

There's one more cool thing you can do with these new candles. Place down a cake, then interact with it while holding a candle to place it in the cake. Lighting this is done in the exact same way as a regular candle, and can be done to create a birthday cake.

While this doesn't serve any real purpose other than decoration, and can only hold a single candle, it's still a really neat centerpiece for your dining area. If the cake is eaten or destroyed, the candle will be dropped.

Now that you know how to craft, and how to light a candle in Minecraft, you can get right to spicing up your home base with this brand new design piece. Torches are still the item of choice for lighting up caves and the outdoors, as they're cheaper, but candles are clearly better for interior design.

Roblox Omega Tower Defense: Best Characters Tier List Mon, 16 Aug 2021 12:09:37 -0400 Sergey_3847

Omega Tower Defense, a spiritual successor to the highly acclaimed All Star Tower Defense game in Roblox, has just received the first big update with some excellent new characters, also called towers or units. This guide will provide you with the tier list of the best characters in Roblox Omega Tower Defense.

Some of the best units have legendary rarity, which makes them both expensive and hard to get. They only have a 0.25% drop rate. But you can always do daily quests to earn more gold with cheaper towers and try to roll again until you get the best S-tier units for your party.

Roblox Omega Tower Defense: S-Tier Units

Ichigo (Shinigami)

The spiritual form of Ichigo has the longest range in the game, and his damage reaches 200 points when maxed out. This is an excellent character for both start and endgame.

He is quite pricey at $900, but it's totally worth it, taking into account just how good he is both solo and in co-op mode.

Friz (Final Form)

The best AoE attacks belong to Friz due to his burn damage, which can add up to a lot of damage. Although his range is not very high, he is still considered one of the best characters in the game.


This skeletal looking unit is based on Soul King Brook from One Piece anime. This is currently the best supporting character in Omega Tower Defense due to his abilities that can buff the range of his allies, as well as, double up their overall damage output.

Put him in the same team with Friz and watch the game world burn down. These two can do no wrong!


Emma is based on the Bulma character from Dragon Ball anime. She has the special ability to increase your money earnings, which is absolutely essential in this game.

The higher her level is, the more money she will produce for you. So invest in her as much as you can.

A-Tier Units


If you can't buy Ichigo, then the next best option would be Yowai (Deku), who costs only $600.

This unit has a special type of AoE attack that kills all enemies within a straight line. This powerful attack can help you deal with harder enemies in the early game.


This is actually the rare version of Ichigo, which is another great alternative, if you can't afford the Shinigami version yet.

His attacks and skills are basically the same, and the only difference is that his damage output is a bit lower.

Friz (First Form)

The cheaper and more affordable version of Friz is not as good as his final form, but it still packs-a-punch.

You can buy him for about $500, and once you level him up he will become one of your best units without a doubt.


This tower is based around freezing AoE abilities that can be very helpful in co-operative gameplay. It allows you to stun your enemies, giving your allies short windows for dealing that extra damage.

Obviously, this isn't the best choice for solo mode as his own damage isn't very high.

B-Tier Units


Here is another tower with stun ability, but a tad cheaper than Tasu. Also, Chie has a pretty high damage, so you can use him in solo mode to a good effect.

Unfortunately, his stun damage is targeted, so you can't really use him in co-op mode as effectively as Tasu.


Ken, on the other hand, is an AoE unit that can be very helpful in the first half of the stages. But later on the maps get narrower, so his abilities won't help you too much in the latter parts of the game.

Super Utsu

This tower will be a great substitute for Ken in those later stages, where his special line AoEs can be much more useful. His damage isn't as high as that of Yowai, but he can still do a lot if you level him up properly.

Those are the best characters in Roblox Omega Tower Defense. For more tier list guides and other Roblox related articles, check out our dedicated hub page.

How to Hatch a Dragon Egg in Minecraft Mon, 16 Aug 2021 11:40:05 -0400 Gavin Burtt

Beating Minecraft is straight forward enough. You need to open up the End Portal, defeat the Ender Dragon, and enter the portal to reach the credits. Of course, this doesn't truly end of the game, as you are still free to play in that world, so what do you earn from this? Well, on top of a massive rain of XP, you also earn the Dragon Egg.

As a result of requiring you to beat the final boss, the Dragon Egg is the single rarest item in Minecraft, but what can you do with it? Sure, it makes a cool trophy piece in your home, to show off to your pets that you've killed the Ender Dragon, but what else is it used for?

Can You Hatch a Dragon Egg in Minecraft?

Unfortunately, there is currently no way to hatch the Dragon Egg in vanilla Minecraft. Sorry to disappoint, but the Dragon Egg really does serve as nothing more than a rare mantle piece that can teleport. Newer players may assume that the Dragon Egg could be used to spawn in a new dragon, similar to the spawn eggs in creative mode, but this isn't the case.

There is, however, a way to respawn the Ender Dragon.

Minecraft: How to Respawn the Ender Dragon

Doing this requires placing four Ender Crystals around the edges of the bedrock portal in the End. These crystals can be created by placing an Ender Eye in the center of a crafting table, a Ghast Tear beneath it, and surrounding it with seen glass blocks. Considering you only need four of these, it's actually fairly cheap to spawn a brand new dragon.

Unfortunately, another Dragon Egg will not be dropped after the first one. If you were hoping to stock up on Dragon Eggs for a potential future update that gives them some utility, then you're out of luck. Considering how regularly Minecraft receives updates, even bringing new utilities to old features, it seems inevitable that these Dragon Eggs will be hatchable at some point, so keep your Dragon Egg somewhere safe and don't let it teleport out of sight!

If you're impatient and want to hatch some eggs now, there are plenty of mods available that will allow you to do that. The most popular one, the Dragon Mounts: Legacy mod, will allow you to do exactly that, tame the newly hatched dragons, and ride them.

Maybe one day, this will be possible in vanilla Minecraft, but keep your trophy somewhere nice until then. Check out our other Minecraft guides here on GameSkinny.

How to Get Dominus Egg in Roblox Pet Simulator X Mon, 09 Aug 2021 11:57:28 -0400 Sergey_3847

Pet Simulator X is the third installment in the highly acclaimed pet simulator series of video games in Roblox. This new game offers players some exciting pets that hatch from the eggs, of which the best and most expensive one is the Dominus egg.

This guide will provide you with tips on how to get Dominus egg in Roblox Pet Simulator X. You will learn how to find and unlock the secret location, and ultimately hatch the Dominus egg for some fantastically overpowered pets.

How to Get Dominus Egg in Roblox Pet Simulator X

Every Roblox Pet Simulator X player notices a closed room at the spawn pet shop. The game doesn't provide you with any tips or hints on how to open it or explains what's behind the closed doors.

That is actually the Forsaken gate, and that's where the Dominus egg is hidden. Here's what you need to do to be able to enter this secret gate:

  1. Grind coins until you hoard 250 million
  2. Purchase the Volcano location
  3. Go back to the spawn shop
  4. Unlock the Forsaken gate for 100,000 diamonds
  5. Purchase the Dominus egg for one billion coins

As you see, in order to get the Dominus egg you will need a lot of coins and diamonds. But it's all worth it for the best pets in the game.

Here's what you can get from the Dominus egg, including the drop rates:

  • Dominus Infernus (43% chance)
  • Dominus Frigidus (43% chance)
  • Dominus Empyreus (13% chance)
  • Domortuus (1% chance)

Domortuus can also be obtained by fusing 12 Dominus pets, but if you're lucky enough you can hatch it directly from the egg, although with an extremely low chance.

If you fuse six Dominus pets, then you will receive one gold version of the Dominus pet every time. For comparison, here are their stats:

Pet Level Golden Level
Rainbow Level
Dominus Infernus 14k-16k 44k-46k 103k-106k
Dominus Frigidus
14.7k-15k 44k-46k 103k-104k
Dominus Empyreus 16.7k-17k 50k-51k 110k-120k
Domortuus 23k-24k 69k-72k 160k-170k


These stats should help you decide if you want to fuse your pets or not. In any case, if you decide to fuse, do so with no less than six pets. Otherwise, you may lose your pets in the process of fusion.

That's everything you need to know on how to get Dominus egg in Roblox Pet Simulator X. Check out our hub page for other Roblox-related articles.

Rimworld UI Missing Fix Guide Wed, 28 Jul 2021 16:00:37 -0400 Ashley Shankle

The new 1.3 update and Ideology expansion for Rimworld have both been boons to Ludeon Studios' sandbox colony sim, but some players are finding the Rimworld UI missing once trying to start a playthrough. Don't be discouraged or start freaking out, though: there are not a lot of things that could make the Rimworld UI disappear.

You can try to fix this issue in two ways, the first one being the easier of the two and the other requiring some sleuth work.

Rimworld UI Missing Fix: Verify Game Files

First and foremost is the ever-trusty option of verifying your local Rimworld files on Steam. Doing so has cleared this issue up for a number of players, both in 1.3 and prior patches.

To verify your local game files, right-click the game in your Steam Library and click Properties. Then click Local Files, and then 'Verify integrity of game files' and let it do its thing.

The verify local files option in Rimworld's Steam options.

If this doesn't work, then you're going to have to do some sleuthing through your mods.

Rimworld UI Missing Fix: Disable Outdated Mods

A large portion of Rimworld players have their games packed to the brim with mods, myself included, which is why this solution is a bit problematic but necessary if your UI still won't show up.

You'll first want to go through your mod list and seek out mods that are outdated, as not every mod has been or will be updated for 1.3. Disable any that are outdated.

If there are some mods you just can't live without that have not been updated for 1.3 yet, you can try to only focus on the ones that are particularly impactful on the UI such as Color Coded Mood Bar.

If you have to disable some outdated mods, it's also a good idea to look through the Steam Workshop and look for offshoot updates to mods you currently have that are outdated. Sometimes different mod creators will swoop in and update an old mod in lieu of the original creator just to get it done faster. It never hurts to check.

That's it for how to deal with Rimworld's UI disappearing. Check out some of our other Rimworld guides here on GameSkinny.

Roblox Demon Fall: All Breathing Trainers Locations Guide Tue, 20 Jul 2021 11:15:46 -0400 Sergey_3847

Demon Fall in Roblox is based on the highly-acclaimed Demon Slayer anime. This game provides players with five breathing styles that fans of the anime and manga should be familiar with. Each breathing style needs to be unlocked by interacting with their corresponding trainers.

This guide will show you all the breathing trainer locations in Roblox Demon Fall. Once you unlock any of the five breathing styles, you will have to invest 3 skill points for each new upgrade of your chosen style.

All Breathing Trainers Locations in Roblox Demon Fall

A Roblox Demon Fall map showing the location of each of the trainers.

Thunder Breath Trainer Location

Thunder breath is a great style if you want to make your sword deal electric damage. This means that your hits will not only have higher damage, but also stun enemies for a longer time.

This breathing style can be acquired from Kujima, who resides in the Coast Forest in the southern part of the map.

Water Breath Trainer Location

This style will allow you to guardbreak your enemies using a special Whirlpool attack. It also adds 15% to your breath bar with each hit, which basically makes your breathing last much longer.

This style is taught by Urokodaki, the second trainer located in the Coast Forest.

Fire Breath Trainer Location

The Fire breath or Flame breath is really powerful. It makes all enemies burn when they get hit by your sword, dealing passive damage.

The Rengoku attack is especially powerful, creating an explosion of fire that engulfs all enemies within its area of effect.

You can learn this style from a trainer named Rengoku, who can be located on the White Peak east of Coast Forest.

Wind Breath Trainer Location

If you want to walk and move faster during battles, then Wind breath is a must-have.

This style includes the infamous Wind Typhon attack that makes your character spin and create a whirlwind that functions like an AoE attack.

You can learn this style from Grimm, a trainer that lives in Okuyia Village to the west of Coast Forest.

Mist Breath Trainer Location

Teleportation can be a great skill to have, especially when you need to attack your enemies from behind.

Mist breathing style has the Sea of Clouds and Haze ability that does that and more.

This style can be acquired from the Tokito trainer at the Frosty Forest in the northeastern part of the map.

Those are all breathing trainers locations in Roblox Demon Fall. For more Roblox related articles check out our dedicated hub page.

Roblox Troublesome Battlegrounds 2: Best Characters Tier List Mon, 12 Jul 2021 14:15:42 -0400 Sergey_3847

Troublesome Battlegrounds 2 is a fighting game on Roblox that has a new and updated roster of characters from the JoJo's Bizarre Adventure series. This guide will provide you with a tier list of the best characters in Roblox Troublesome Battlegrounds 2, including their purchase costs and availability.

Currently, the game has four game modes: Free for All, Team Battle, Life Stocks, and Juggernaut. Each character listed below is generally notable in all of them, but if some of them are better in certain modes, it will be mentioned.

Roblox Troublesome Battlegrounds 2 S-Tier Characters


  • Roster: DLC Pack 1
  • Cost: 250 Robux

Ghiaccio is a perfect teammate that can take his allies to a victory with almost any team composition in a Team Battle mode.

His block-breaking move Ice Breaker is like no other in the game. It freezes enemy characters in a block of ice and has a cooldown of only 15 seconds. This allows him to repeatedly disrupt any enemy team's gameplan, and practically hand you the victory.

Ghiaccio's Blizzard AoE is just as good, and it not only damages all enemies in your vicinity, but it also freezes them, letting your other teammates get an advantage in the match-up.



  • Roster: Stardust Crusaders
  • Cost: $2,300

DIO has a rare teleportation ability that can be activated by pressing the Q key (Dodge).

DIO is an all-rounder that will be highly effective in any of the game's modes. He is just that powerful.

His infamous block-breaking Time Break ability allows him to swiftly move to any enemy and perform a heavy kick that completely disrupts their combos or blocking moves.

In his awakened form Greatest High all of his abilities double up in power, which basically means game over for anyone taking a chance against him.

A-Tier Characters

Jean Pierre Polnareff

Jean Pierre Polnareff.

  • Roster: Stardust Crusaders
  • Cost: $1,500

Polnareff is like a lightning in a bottle. He is extremely fast and has the longest M1 range, which makes his hitboxes the smallest.

This is one of the few characters with AoE attack Circle Slash that deals 10 damage to everyone around him.

Polnareff also has a few powerful guard break attacks, but his projectile-based Rapier Shot is the most effective one.

In his awakening form, he becomes extremely fast with his moves, which gives him an advantage over any other character in any of the game modes.

Akira Otoishi

Akira Otoishi.

  • Roster: DLC Pack 2
  • Cost: 250 Robux

Akira is not as fast as Polnareff, but he can stack up damage up to three times using his Amp Up form, where he also gives a short guitar performance, which is a nice touch.

He also has his own AoE attack Static Shock that has a cooldown of 30 seconds, and it also has the stacking damage counter, which can reach up to 28 points of damage.

Akira's block-breaking 1,000 Volt Slash attack blasts enemies with electric shock that is capable of throwing them out of any combo loop.

This and other skills make Akira a universally good character for all modes.

B-Tier Characters

Vinegar Doppio

Vinegar Doppio.

  • Roster: Golden Wind
  • Cost: $2,500

If you don't want to spend Robux on Ghiaccio, but you still want a solid Team Battle player, then having Doppio on your team would be great.

This pink-haired character has a unique combo-breaking ability Split Personality, which makes Doppio completely immune to all types of damage. You can just stand there, activate this ability, and watch your enemies struggle with dealing even a single point of damage to you.

In the awakened form Doppio turns into King Crimson, a much stronger version of the character with the same name from the first Troublesome Battlegrounds game.

Giorno Giovanna

Giorno Giovanna.

  • Roster: Golden Wind
  • Cost: $650

Juggernaut mode isn't everybody's cup of tea, but if you're one of those players who likes to play the role of a baddie, then Giorno is a great choice. Honestly, he's also just really cheap.

Giorno's biggest upside is his Life Sensor passive skill that allows him to see the health of other characters at all times. This can give you an advantage over which character you'd have a higher chance to finish first.

He can also heal himself using his Broach Healing ability, which is very important in modes like Juggernaut, where life count really matters.

Those are the best characters in Roblox Troublesome Battlegrounds 2. Also, be sure to check out more Roblox-related articles on our dedicated hub page.

Roblox Slayers Unleashed: All Dezzy Teddy Bear Locations Thu, 08 Jul 2021 11:22:56 -0400 Sergey_3847

Slayers Unleashed is a new fighting game in Roblox that is based on the Demon Slayer anime. It puts players in an open world environment, where they can test out their combat skills against others online. But the game is not limited to mere fighting and has some really cool surprises.

This guide will show you the locations of all Dezzy Teddy Bears in Roblox Slayers Unleashed. This quest can be done really quickly and the reward could be greater than the effort.

Roblox Slayers Unleashed: All Dezzy Teddy Bear Locations

In order to start the Teddy Bear quest you need to speak to Megan. This pink-haired NPC can be found in the safe zone right next to Katana Shop. Talk to her and she will ask you to find her lost Dezzy Teddy Bear.

There are actually three Teddy Bears to be found on the map. Follow our instructions to find them all.

Dezzy Teddy Bear 1 Location

You need to leave the safe zone through the eastern gate (just follow the E marker on top of the screen).

Once you enter the open area, you need to locate a set of platforms right in front of you (shown on the screenshot above).

Climb up this set of platforms and you should see the first Teddy Bear on one of the upper platforms.

Dezzy Teddy Bear 2 Location

The second Teddy Bear can be found to the right or northeast of the location of the first bear.

There you should see the second set of platforms. You will find the second doll on one of the upper platforms as well.

Dezzy Teddy Bear 3 Location

The third and final Teddy Bear can be seen at the base of the wall to the right of the location with the second doll.

Just walk up to the wall and walk all along it until you notice the bear on the ground. In case you can't see the Teddy Bears, you need to restart your server.

Once you get all three Dezzy Teddy Bear dolls you can bring them back to Megan, who will reward you with a random in-game item.

Hopefully, our guide helped you locate all Dezzy Teddy Bears in Roblox Slayers Unleashed. For more Roblox related articles check out our dedicated hub page.
