Get your JRPGs and anime games cheap in Steam’s Golden Week sale

Looking to dig into some Japanese RPG games? Maybe some anime games? Either way, Steam is here to provide. Golden Week has started, and the collection of Japanese holidays once again means it’s time for the Steam Golden Week sale, offering a steep discount across a massive range of titles developed in Japan.

You can check out a big ol’ list of deals on the Steam page, which is broken down across categories like RPGs, fighting, hack and slash, platformer, visual novel, and the like. The deals include massive triple-A titles – like Monster Hunter World, the Resident Evil 2 remake, and Monster Hunter World – alongside a host of obscurities.

Some of the highlights include the Yakuza series, which you still really need to play – Yakuza 0, the best entry point, is down to just $6.79 / £5.09 / €6.79. You can also get some nice savings on the whole Final Fantasy series, including the original FF7, perfect if you’re looking for some nostalgia ahead of the eventual PC version of the Final Fantasy VII remake.

Get six free games from Twitch Prime this month

Another month is here, and that means it’s time for another round of free PC games courtesy of Twitch Prime – and yes, this is also your reminder that Amazon Prime members get the benefits of Twitch’s bonus giveaways, too. This is your last chance to get April’s free games – you can grab them here – before the newly-revealed May 2020 lineup hits the service.

May’s free games include the non-traditional platformer Snake Pass, Swedish DJ tribute Avicii Invector, mental health exploration Fractured Minds, story-driven action platformer Pankapu, dirtbike stuntfest Urban Trial Playground, and a hand-drawn point-and-click adventure called The Little Acre.

As always, everything downloads through the standalone Twitch client. The installs are usually DRM free, so you should be able to play the games if you don’t want to make use of yet another taskbar icon. You can link up an existing Amazon Prime membership to your Twitch account and enjoy the benefits of the promotion, and new subscribers can also use a free trial to grab those games.

Apex Legends Season 5 adds Loba, a Season Quest, and lets you reconnect

Apex Legends Season 5: Fortune’s Favor has officially been unveiled ahead of its start on May 12. We’ve got the expected additions of a new battle pass, the next ranked series, and a new Legend – this time it’s Loba, a master thief – but there’s also a mysterious new addition called the ‘Season Quest.’

The new quests are described on the official site: “Hunt for treasure and answers in the new Season Quest. Those who complete the journey will be richly rewarded.” We’ve got no further details on what that means just yet, but we will get a more complete picture of Season 5 with a launch trailer on May 5 at 10:00 PDT / 13:00 EDT / 18:00 BST.

Loba Andrade is our new legend this time around – you can see her lore trailer below, which reveals Loba’s quest for vengeance against last season’s legend, Revenant. The new battle pass contains pretty much what you’d expect: “over 100 exclusive items including Legendary skins, Apex Packs, new battle pass content making a Season 5 debut, and more”.

How big are dicks in Skyrim? Elder Scrolls fans are debating just that

Yes, you read that headline right. Elder Scrolls fans have taken to Reddit to discuss and debate what the penis sizes of the different races in Skyrim and the RPG games series’ universe might be. And there are some impressively considered theories – with actual equations – on everything from length and girth proportionality to whether Khajiit peckers are “barbed like real cats”.

As spotted by VG24/7, user GoodOld3C has launched a debate on the Elder Scrolls subreddit simply titled: “DEBATE: Dick sizes by race”. They explain: “Since my friend and I have been fiercely debating this, I would like to see the community’s thoughts on what we have come up with.” Posting a long list of every Elder Scrolls race, each paired with an estimated penis size in both metric and imperial measurement, they say they’re happy to open up it up to discussion – but would prefer the community “use evidence rather than personal bias”. Fair enough.

It’s fair to say the community’s responded with some gusto. While there have been plenty of answers so far, one user, RedPooD2thehemodroid, has offered an authoritative answer to end all answers.

Come watch the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla trailer reveal here

If you’re an action-adventure games, open-world games, or RPG games fan you might be excited to know there’s an Assassin’s Creed Valhalla trailer introducing the new Assassin’s Creed game on the way later today. The upcoming Viking game’s setting was live teased piece-by-piece by artist Kode ‘BossLogic’ Abdo yesterday, and now we’re just a couple of hours away from its world premiere trailer.

Other than its setting, it’s not clear just yet what the game will bring to the major series. We do, however, know that Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will be brought to life by 15 studios. Phwoar. Hopefully we’ll see the Assassin’s Creed Valhalla release date, plot, and a whole bunch of other lovely morsels of information about the upcoming Viking romp emerge when the trailer drops.

The good news is you’ll be able to tune in right here when the trailer arrives. Ubisoft’s announced on the game’s Twitter channel the premiere will go live today (April 30) at 08:00 PT / 11:00 ET / 16:00 UK.
