How to get Meowmere in Stardew Valley

We all love a good, secret Easter egg in games, especially Stardew Valley, which is absolutely full of them. We were already excited about all the new content in the 1.6 update, but there was one item included that was never even teased. The Meowmere is a new, super-secret sword that pays a nice little tribute to Terraria. The complex sequence of events you need to perform to get it calls back to that classic crafting game. The Meowmere is intentionally hard to get, but you can save a lot of time by following these…

Dragon’s Dogma 2 changed how I look at fast travel in video games

Capcom I never had reason to give much thought to fast travel in games before starting Dragon’s Dogma 2. In most open-world games that include the feature, the only requirement for accessing it is reaching points of interest. Once players do so, they are generally free to zip from point to point around the map with little to no inconvenience. That isn’t how Dragon’s Dogma 2 operates — fast travel is based around a limited currency called Ferrystones — and it has completely changed my mindset on the mechanic as a…

THQ Nordic While Nintendo’s February Direct Partner Showcase included a few unexpected games, nothing was more surprising than the return of Epic Mickey. The Nintendo Wii adventure is something of a cult classic among Disney fans thanks to its unique painting hook and some clever 2D levels that pay tribute to classic Mickey Mouse cartoons. Though it’s beloved by some, reviews at the time were mixed due to some clumsy Wii-era motion controls and a poor 3D camera. Thankfully, the Disney adventure is getting some…

Does AI have a sense of humor?

Back in January, a lot of people were infuriated by the very idea of a posthumous, AI-generated George Carlin special—at least until it turned out to be written by a human. Jeff Ganim was not one of those people. “I want to see an AI Jerry Seinfeld cracking jokes in a hundred years about the towels in a hotel on the moon,” the AI prompt engineer says. Ganim’s recent creation, PFFT, named after one of the sounds people’s lips allegedly make when they find something funny, uses an AI model to dispense The Onion-style…
