Have you noticed Link getting some shiny new weapons, or maybe a few new Boss Bokoblins running around in Tears of the Kingdom? Well, there may be a reason for that.

For those of you who didn’t know, Breath of the Wild actually featured an invisible XP system, where link would “level up” throughout the game, seeing harder enemies and getting better gear the more you played. Interestingly, the same thing seems to happen in Tears of the Kingdom.

Austin John Plays made a great video explaining how this system works, but it’s important to note its mostly just speculation at this point, as there haven’t been any in-depth datamines of the game at this point. However, considering Breath of the Wild contained this same feature, theres a good chance Tears of the Kingdom’s system is quite similar. For a quicker rundown of the system, check out IGN’s video below!


Earlier this year, we learned that E3 was once again canceled after hearing many big names, including Nintendo, weren’t attending. This was disappointing news for many, as Nintendo always held a great direct for the event. Last year after a similar E3 cancelation, we never got a full-fledged Direct, only a Partner Showcase. Because of this, many are wondering if Nintendo will have a direct during this year’s E3 Timeframe.

According to Ethan Gach of Kotaku, Nintendo is planning on having a “digital showcase” sometime this year. While the “this year” portion is a little vague, with how close it is to E3 season, it seems likely we could be getting a presentation pretty soon. This could be backed up by the second part of his tweet, which says to expect more news from him in “coming weeks and months”.

Overall the timing lines up well for what would be E3 Season if it was still happening, and while this isn’t an official announcement, the news is from a quite reputable source. Heres hoping we do get a not-E3 E3 Direct!

Looking for a new tabletop-inspired roguelike adventure? Look no further than Dark Quest III! Check out the full breakdown below, and the trailer above for some action-packed gameplay!

Heed my warning well, friends. A new evil has risen in the East. A power-hungry sorcerer of chaos magic is laying siege to the realm. That is why I called you here. You are heroes, one and all. And without you, all hope is lost. You will face untold challenges you may not survive, and old alliances will need to be rebuilt to stand a chance. I will guide you as best I can, but the rest is up to you.

Long, long ago, a young boy discovered an immensely powerful book of magic. Unlocking its power piece by piece, his curiosity soon turned to obsession.Simply studying the tome wasn’t enough. Before long, he used his findings to bring the very world to life. Trees, flowers, and mushrooms sprouted legs and maws, yearning for fresh meat. Wild animals were melded with humans and thrown into his labyrinth. The dead arose from the long-forgotten ruins. And in the city corrupted by gold, his tongue poisoned the king’s ear.

His obsession finally led to a tear in the veil - a portal to another place where untold horrors lurk. Now, they enter our world in droves, razing villages to the ground.

These unimaginable events have brought together heroes from across the realm. Heroes like you. From this camp, we will push these creatures back to the beyond and defeat this irredeemable sorcerer.

Work your way through deck after deck of dungeon encounters, roll checks to get through deadly obstacles, and face down foes in fast-paced strategic combat. Each run can bring fearsome new foes to fight, powerful new allies to enlist, and cunning new tools & tactics to employ as you try to conquer each deck and eventually stop the power hungry sorcerer who’s laying siege to the realm.

You start the game at hero camp where you must create your party and then go on journey throughout the world by choosing different areas. Choose each area based on your party’s strengths and weakness, draw adventure cards, roll dice, fight monsters and reach the chaos castle to defeat the sorcerer and his magic.

12 heroes and over 60 monsters
Procedurally generated adventures and combat
Rogue-lite experience where you create a party of heroes and play until you win or die
13 areas to play with over 150 adventure cards

[Press Release]

Taking inspiration from outside sources is a fairly common occurrence in gaming. These can often range from a wide variety of sources, including works of fiction such as books, shows, or movies, and even some real-life events. It seems that 2015’s Life is Strange may have taken direct inspiration from a real-life missing-persons case, as the in-game missing-person poster for Rachel strikes an uncanny resemblance to a real-life missing-person poster for Sunday Blombergh.

As described by the late Sunday Blombergh’s daughter Isabella, details surrounding the character Rachel’s backstory and physical appearance are nearly identical. As seen on the poster, the character’s height and eye color are exactly the same, and they even share some similar tattoos. The poster also shares a phone number to contact the local sheriff, which is exactly the same other than the area code.

Since all of this is only on the in-game poster, one could assume that the devs were simply using the poster as a reference, and should have changed a few details to make it more unique. However, according to Sunday Blombergh’s nephew, many in-game background details are also quite similar.

“On Rachel’s wiki page, there are several descriptions that are near-copies of Sunday,” her nephew, Skylur Blombergh, told me over email. “‘Generally considered popular and nice, but also rebellious;’ [the wiki writers] imply Rachel was a drug addict, and [describe] her love for art. That was Sunday nearly to a T.” But he emphasizes that, despite what inconsiderate media coverage suggested, Sunday had stopped using drugs much prior to her death.


“My grandfather, Reign Blombergh, broke down when he first found out about it,” Skylur told me, “because he felt as if people wouldn’t just leave it alone. That seemed to have been the general consensus among the family.”

“The developers […] should have reached out to the family,” he concluded.


While the developers surely didn’t mean to match the case this closely, it is a good point that they should have reached out beforehand, as it is quite a sensitive issue. Surely no ill intent was meant behind these decisions. In the future, it may be a good idea to do a second look when dealing with real-life inspiration.
