New to Paladins on PS4 and Xbox One? We’ve got everything you need to get started. Paladins is the first-person shooter from the creators of SMITE, and it’s only just arrived on PS4 and Xbox One as a free game. Having entered into closed beta back in November 2015 on PC and having been in development for some time before that, it has come a long way since it started. It boasts millions of players on PC, so yes, we reckon you should be playing it whatever your format of choice. To get the elephant out of the room early: yes Paladins is similar to Overwatch, but no, they’re nothing alike. For anyone who has played both, they’re vastly different. While there’s surface level similarities, there’s more than enough to differentiate both to such a degree that any immediate comparisons would be incredibly lazy.

One of the biggest aspects of Persona 5 is spending time and improving your relationships with your confidants. These confidants can be party members or just non-playable characters that you run into out in the world. Each confidant has a corresponding Persona Arcana, and leveling them up grants you bonuses to Fusion, as well as many other things.Most confidants hang out somewhere on the map, whereas a few are story-related only. When looking for someone to hang out with, you can pull up your map and look for the blue tarot cards around the areas (press square over an area if you want to see who is available there). Different confidants will also send you texts every day asking to hang out. Not every confidant is available to talk with every day. It varies constantly.SPOILER WARNING: The list of confidant and their descriptions could be considered as spoilers.Igor - Fool The creepy man who runs the Velvet Room, Igor is your warden throughout the game.

This will also be your first opportunity to do laundry post-dungeon, which will allow you to clean any dirty gear that you found. Once your time is spent, go to bed and prepare for the fallout tomorrow. Today is the big day! For the past two weeks we have had a countdown to the board meeting, and yet, once the moment comes? Cancelled. The students will all gather in the gymnasium for a school wide meeting. Eventually, Kamoshida will wander in and confess all of his crimes to the entire school. It’s a great moment, so be sure to pay attention. After that satisfying scene, the gang will return to the roof for a brief meeting. You will now get a few days off school … [Read more...] about Persona 5 guide: All of May and Madarame’s Museum Palace
You've got $400, maybe $500 sitting around and you're thinking that it's time to buy into some next-gen gaming. Sounds great, but maybe you shouldn't invest in a PlayStation 4, or an Xbox One. Maybe it's time to drop some cash on the most established gaming platform in history: The PC.The question is: Can such a relatively meager budget get you a system worth gaming on or is it a better option to spend it on a console?The short answer is $500 is about $100 shy of what you need to buy a gaming rig that will last you a while without upgrade, but enough to get your foot in the door and set you up for what will become a long, lovely PC gaming relationship."If they're going to try and spend $400, $500 on a gaming PC, they're not going to get the type of experience they might want," said Josh Covington, marketing manager for boutique gaming PC builder Velocity Micro.
