There's A New Update Available For Stardew Valley On Nintendo Switch

Stardew Valley

The Nintendo Switch version of the insanely popular farming and social sim Stardew Valley has received a new patch. It bumps the game up to Version 1.5.4.2

As noted by the creator, ConcernedApe, it resolves some bugs and crashes, and that “notorious mummified bat” issue…

This latest update follows on the release of Version 1.5.4.1 at the beginning of March – which fixed the following issues:

– Fixed issue where the ground or flooring in some areas would appear solid blue.
– Fixed issue where UI would appear offset on zoom settings other than 100%.

The last big update for the game was 1.5 – adding a new farm, split-screen and more (it rolled out in February of this year). While it seems minor updates will be continuing, right now there doesn’t appear to be anything else major planned.

Argos PS5 UK stock: Order page revealed, 10,000 consoles available to buy tonight

Argos typically open orders for the PS5 in the early hours of the morning, with the last restock going live from around 1am.

That means PS5 stock hunters looking to purchase a PS5 from Argos face a late night of trying to get their order in.

While this may leave them a bit bleary eyed, the good news is these early stock drops mean gamers have been able to pick up their PS5 order on the same day with past restocks.

That’s thanks to Argos offering local collection at stores around the country.

This week’s Argos restock had previously been rumoured to be dropping on either Tuesday or Thursday this week.

But as @PS5StockAlertUK noted earlier on, this week has seen stock get handled “slower” at retailers.

Yakuza Like a Dragon is Available Today with Xbox Game Pass

Summary

  • Yakuza: Like a Dragon is available today with Xbox Game Pass!
  • This turn-based RPG follows yakuza grunt Ichiban Kasuga and his eccentric friends searching for the truth behind his clan’s betrayal.
  • All eight mainline Yakuza series are available with Xbox Game Pass to play on console and PC from Yakuza 0 through Yakuza: Like a Dragon.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon roars with Xbox Game Pass today! Now, you can play all eight mainline Yakuza series from Yakuza 0 to the latest installment, Yakuza: Like a Dragon. This celebration calls for champagne – Sparkling Cannon!

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

That’s what I’m talking about.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon is an underdog story starring Ichiban Kasuga, a headstrong yakuza with a heart of gold. After doing 18 years of hard time at his Patriarch’s request, Ichiban hopes to return as a hero… only to be met with betrayal from his clan. Alienated and out of touch with the modern world, Ichi finds support among society’s misfits just like him, united by a cause bigger than themselves.

Starting at rock bottom with nothing but your unshakeable morals and the shirt on your back, join Ichi as he fights his way back onto the path — even if the place you end up is where you never expected.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Naturally, there are those out there that would keep Ichi and friends down, from thugs to more insidious groups. So when it’s time to throw down, Ichi’s imagination kicks into high gear and the streets of Yokohama transform into a turn-based RPG battlefield. Why? Because Ichi’s a fan of retro RPGs! Bard becomes Musician, Swordsman becomes Bodyguard, Mage becomes Chef, and much more. Build your party to perfect synergy and overcome any situation.

Now, Yakuza: Like a Dragon is a fresh start with a new protagonist, but if you are feeling nostalgic for the older Yakuza games, the Legends Costume Set is available as standalone DLC for the first time. This pack includes eight different ensembles that pay homage to Yakuza’s OGs from Majima’s slick tux to Daigo’s streetwear.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

As we’ve mentioned, the previous seven games are also available with Xbox Game Pass, Yakuza 0 through Yakuza 6: The Song of Life. Different from Yakuza: Like a Dragon, these are action brawlers that follow the saga of the original series protagonist, Kazuma Kiryu, on his own path from humble beginnings to an underworld legend.

Both Yakuza: Like a Dragon and Yakuza 0 are perfect entry points into the series, so if you love a complex narrative in a larger-than-life crime drama with a ton of heart, you are in for an unforgettable ride.

Yakuza: Like a Dragon

Yakuza: Like a Dragon and the rest of the mainline Yakuza games are available now with Xbox Game Pass. Keep up to date with us right here on Xbox Wire and @RGGStudio on Twitter.

Maps

Open Country

Open Country features three unique maps, each one representing a different season; Summer, Autumn and Winter. You’ll find different animals in each map and unique dangers. Explore each map to find the best places to hunt, build camps to store food and find the best vistas for screenshots, but be careful of predators. Animals such as wolves and bears don’t like visitors, so always be aware of your surroundings.

Vehicles

Open Country

The maps are big. Really big. Getting around can take a while unless you hop on board an ATV, boat or snowmobile. These vehicles are loud, so if you’re on your way to a hunt, stop early and hike the rest of the way or you’ll scare away all of the game!

Wasteland 3: The Battle of Steeltown Now Available

The Wasteland 3 team here at inXile is excited to release our first narrative expansion: The Battle of Steeltown! The manufacturing complex of Steeltown has come to a grinding halt, and the Rangers need to get its gears turning again—but that’s not going to happen without a fight. Wasteland 3’s tactical turn-based combat is leveled up in Steeltown, with new combat mechanics that will challenge even the most seasoned Ranger, as well as the ability to play pacifist and go the non-lethal route with new disruptor weapons. Your choices in Steeltown matter, and how you talk and fight your way through will have far-reaching consequences throughout Colorado.

The Battle of Steeltown is now available on Xbox One (playable on Xbox Series X|S via Backward Compatibility), Windows 10 PC and Steam for $ 13.99 USD. Xbox Game Pass members who want to purchase The Battle of Steeltown DLC save 10%.

In addition to The Battle of Steeltown, we’ve also just released Patch 1.4.0 Appetite for Construction, a free update which adds Crating and a new animal Kennel to the base game. These are in addition to permadeath, difficult skill checks, and the dozens of features and improvements and hundreds of tweaks and fixes we’ve added to the game since launch.

Thank you to our community for their continued support; we’re looking forward to seeing your choices in Steeltown as you attempt to solve the factory’s problems like only the Rangers can.

Be sure to visit inXile-entertainment.com to keep up on the latest news, and follow along on Twitter @Wasteland and join the Ranger.HQ on Facebook.

We’ll see you in Colorado.

The towering factory complex of Steeltown manufactures all the tech that keeps Colorado running and the Patriarch in power—trucks, armor, weapons, and robots. But deliveries from Steeltown have stopped cold, and all the Patriarch is getting from Abigail Markham—Steeltown’s leader—are excuses. When he sends the Rangers to investigate, they find the place is a powder keg with the fuse already lit. The workers are striking, bandits raid with impunity, and nobody is allowed through the gates, not even on the business of the Patriarch. Without help, Steeltown could crash and burn for good, and take Markham with it—but maybe that’s just what it needs. The Rangers will have to decide that for themselves. Traverse the Steeltown manufacturing complex alone or in co-op in this epic narrative expansion. Take on challenging new quests, face off against new robotic enemies, and solve the mystery at the heart of Steeltown however you see fit. Tactical combat is taken to new heights with new mechanics like devastating telegraphed attacks, stacking status effects, elemental shields, and non-lethal weapons—letting you solve Steeltown’s skirmishes in brand new ways. Combat and gear scaling means that both new and returning players can enter Steeltown during their playthroughs for a level-appropriate challenge, with a story and cast of characters that adapt to the decisions you’ve already made. The Battle of Steeltown expands the base game with new enemies, weapons, armor, and world map encounters. Music Supervisor Mary Ramos and Composer Mark Morgan return with original scores and new post-apocalyptic inspired covers.

Geriatric Dating Sim Later Daters is Now Available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S

Every day we inch closer to death, so we might as well enjoy the ride and make the most of it. Later Daters, the geriatric dating simulator, is now available for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S. Move to the Ye Olde retirement community and meet the cute silver foxes that live there. It’s a lot like summer camp, but with orthopedic shoes, bridge clubs, and more Jell-o. Flirt with and date your fellow residents, start some drama, or just kick back with our cribbage mini-game.

We released the game in installments throughout 2020 and this is our first premium release, which includes episodes 1-7 and the cribbage mini-game. The game is chock full of sexy times, but the characters also must address serious questions about mortality and grief along the way.

Later Daters

You might ask why we decided to make a dating sim featuring senior citizens. We’ve been called a “weird” dating sim several times, drawing comparisons to Hatoful Boyfriend and the KFC dating sim. Mainstream media often considers the elderly ill-suited for romance narratives because older characters are often de-sexed; portrayed as cutesy grandparents or wizened old crones. We wanted to show the elderly as complicated and interesting people who get crushes and experience heartbreak. All of this to say – yes, you can have sex in the game, hence the Mature ESRB rating.

You might also wonder who this game is for. We wanted to incorporate queer narratives into the game, and with that mission in mind we learned that queer elderly people have a lot in common with millennials. We would argue that the game is aspirational for anyone who worries about their future and dreams about retirement. Queer people sometimes don’t experience the same life milestones, like marriage, having kids, and owning a home, in the same timeframe as their counterparts – which makes queer seniors a treasure trove of fascinating life stories.

Later Daters

We hope you enjoy our little labour of love. Follow us on Twitter @Bloom_Digital_ for more Later Daters related content and news on our future games. And remember, if the chairs are rockin’, don’t come a-knockin’.
