The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is the franchise’s first foray into the open world genre, and despite a few hiccups here and there, the game is very enjoyable. Breath of the Wild is large and explorable, and hand-holding is kept to a minimum. Of course, the game still has some problems, but patches can easily fix them.

Earlier today, Nintendo updated Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild to Version 1.1.1, but the company forgot to say what the update changes. The patch notes read, “Adjustments have been made to make for a more pleasant gaming experience.” This lone note does not explain what has been adjusted or how; it just makes a vague promise that the patch provides a better gaming experience. This kind of ambiguity makes Breath of the Wild enjoyable when used in-game, but it is much less welcome in the real world. A more pleasant gaming experience could mean anything from decreasing stamina consumption to completely reworking the weapon and shield durability system.

So what does Version 1.1.1 bring? According to sites such as Kotaku and Polygon, improved frame rates. When Breath of the Wild released, many people complained that the game suffered from frame rate issues, especially in areas such as the Korok Forest. Playing the game on the Nintendo Switch’s portable screen usually fixes these issues. With the new update, many gamers report that frame rates are more stable, both on the Wii U and the Switch when it is docked. However, these reports also claim that some areas, especially the ones players find later in the game (i.e., the ones nobody seems to want to mention for fear of spoilers), still have frame rate issues, albeit less severe ones.

With luck, the Breath of the Wild Version 1.1.2 will fix all the remaining frame rate issues. Afterwards, Nintendoblank can finally fix other issues, such the inability to remap buttons or the annoying weapon and shield durability system. A gamer can dream.

All you have to do to get my attention is talk about video games, technology, anime, and/or Dungeons & Dragons - also people in spandex fighting rubber suited monsters.

Shift Up unveils the intriguing details behind the physical packaging of Stellar Blade for the PS5

It appears that many

are eagerly anticipating the launch of the highly anticipated PS5 exclusive, Stellar Blade. Shift Up, the developer, has shared a lengthy video showcasing the “secrets” found in the physical box of the game for PS5. From what we can gather, these secrets include a reversible cover/dust jacket and a download code for cosmetic items.

We must clarify that while we do appreciate the variant cover, it may be more appealing than the game’s standard art. However, it is not something we would typically classify as a “secret.”. However, what’s interesting is that Shift Up has confirmed through the comments section that this will be the case in all regions. Additionally, the visually striking action RPG will remain uncensored worldwide.

It’s refreshing to witness a developer going the extra mile for physical collectors, and it’s evident that the developer is determined to leave a favorable mark in the console realm. Stellar Blade is set to make its highly anticipated debut this Friday, April 26th, exclusively on the PS5.

  • If you’re up for it, you have the option to contribute to Community Game Help by giving permission for your gameplay video to be automatically recorded and included in the feature after it’s been reviewed
  • If you want to join in, navigate to Settings, then Captures & Broadcasts, followed by Captures, Auto Captures, and finally Community Game Help. From there, simply choose the option to participate. Users have the option to unsubscribe whenever they choose
  • During Remote Play, players now have the option to hide the persistent message “Remote Play connected.” that appears on their game screen. To ensure a seamless gaming experience, navigate to the Settings menu, then proceed to the System section. From there, locate the Remote Play option and activate the Hide Remote Play Connection Status feature
  • The system’s software performance and stability have been significantly enhanced
  • The messages and usability on some screens have been enhanced

While not the most groundbreaking update, the Community Game Help feature has the potential to be intriguing, contingent upon the number of games that offer support for it. What are your thoughts on the latest update? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below.

New PS5 Patch Introduces Rare 40FPS Mode for Avatar Game

Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora has received an exciting update that introduces a new graphical mode, elevating the game’s visual experience. With a smooth frame rate of 40 frames per second and enhanced resolutions, players can now immerse themselves in even more stunning and detailed environments. Now downloadable on PS5 with the latest patch 3.2, this mode is compatible with 4K TVs that can handle up to 120 Hz. Before this update, Avatar PS5 only offered quality and performance modes. However, with this new option, players can now enjoy the benefits of both modes after downloading the 2.4GB update.

Throughout the PS5 era, 40fps modes have been a rarity, much to the disappointment of the hardcore community. Insomniac Games first introduced them in Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales and later added the feature to Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart. They also included it in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. Other PS5 titles, such as Hogwarts Legacy, Lies of P, and God of War Ragnarok, also offer 40fps modes.

In addition to that, Patch 3.2 for Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora brings along the following:

Worldwide:

  • Research Station Alpha now features a convenient Fast Travel option
  • The issue of controller re-mapping and resetting on game restart has been resolved
  • Addressed multiple instances of crashes
  • I corrected a few spelling errors
  • Addressed the issue of voice lines overlapping during dialogue

Primary Objectives & Optional Objectives:

  • [Main Quest: Shadows of the Past] This main quest is an intriguing journey into the depths of history. Addressed a bug that previously hindered quest progression in co-op mode

More bug fixes have been implemented.

  • [Available on all platforms] The rescued human characters no longer return to the Resistance HQ wearing masks
  • Available on all platforms. There is a noticeable improvement in the visibility of NPCs when they are at the edge of the Player’s vision
