Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity – Untold Chronicles From 100 Years Past – Part 3 – Nintendo Switch
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity follows the timeline of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, taking place 100 years before the events of that title. Fans will be able to learn more about Zelda, the King of Hyrule, the four champions, and other key characters as they set out to protect the land of Hyrule from Calamity.

The game will come out on November 20, 2020 for the Nintendo Switch.
If games have taught us just one life lesson, it’s that war never changes. However, Leviathanimation’s Tyrania – A Kinetic Visual Novel attempts to twist this time-tested narrative through the actions of just one man. However, despite its grandiose vision, this title falters at getting its point across.
Tyrania – A Kinetic Visual Novel Review
In a land where cities are burning, children are crying, and war is never ending, Edo lives in the neutral area of Dominence with his guardian Mr. Smith. Times are tough for him in this distraught world, with the talented pianist Anjeru serving as his only source of happiness. Though he is in a relatively safe area, he wishes to seek out an end to the war by any means necessary.
However, everything quickly changes when he finds a bracelet in a piano, one that has the power to control technology. When Edo wields it, he hears a voice from an alternate reality that tells him that he can achieve his dreams in exchange for his humanity. What follows is a struggle to figure out what he is truly fighting for, and where his place lies in this crazy world.
It’s a cliche tale, one that is overly melodramatic at every turn. Everything is placed straight, and edgy personas are the norm. The moment you learn that Edo’s brother is working for the enemy is the moment you realize that the development team has watched one too many shonen anime series. The moment you see a dramatic outcry like “NONESENSE!!!” [sic] is the moment the cheese is laid on far too thick.
This dynamic extends to the rest of the cast – it’s not uncommon to see high ranking officers be evil for the sake of being evil, or generic warscapes to show the horrors of war. It oftentimes feels like the development team wanted to create dramatic setpieces that showed shocking things, rather than tie them into the narrative.
The narrative also has a problem with cohesion as things progress. There are times where Edo desperately cries out about Anjeru’s death, only for her to be perfectly fine without any fanfare less than 15 minutes later. There are also times where the scenery will change from somebody’s bedroom to a conference room to a dreamy alternate reality in a matter of minutes. These images were likely taken from stock assets and blurred, but they do not make sense in the context of the story.
The character designs do not fare much better. Anime eyes, spiky hair, and scruffy guys with a cigarette in their mouth are the norm. Everything is poorly drawn, with the perspectives coming across as somewhat odd. There’s a distinct lack of detail in its design, and nothing in this visual novel ever seems to mesh well together.
Those who know even the most basic of anime tropes will be well acquainted with all the major beats of Tyrania. This visual novel is as basic as they come, and the lack of polish makes it an easy pass.

There is an objective in Phasmophobia that needs the Crucifix. This guide on How To Use The Crucifix In Phasmophobia explains an easy but effective method of completing the Objective titled “Prevent the Ghost from Hunting with a Crucifix”.
Each level in Phasmophobia has a series of optional objectives outside of your main objective to find the identity of the ghost. Once such objective requires the Crucifix. This is not always possible as the objective can appear when you don’t have the equipment, and it can also appear on levels where you are hunting a ghost that doesn’t react to the Crucifix.
How To Use The Crucifix In Phasmophobia
The Crucifix can be very useful, regardless of whether or not you have the Crucifix specific objective. Depending on your difficulty level and the ghost you are hunting, they begin a hunt phase where activities usually go off the scale. The doors get thrown shut, locked, the lights go off, your torches begin to flicker. It’s usually at this point when one of your fellow ghost hunters becomes the hunted.
The Crucifix can delay this hunting phase but it’s a challenging and often unsuccessful setup. Due to the very limited radius of the Crucifix, it’s a good idea to have at least two, but three is also a very good option. It’s definitely possible with a single Crucifix, but it very much depends on what map you’re on and what room the ghost is haunting. In the larger rooms, one Crucifix can be very challenging but it’s easier to manage in the smaller rooms.
The trick to using the Crucifix, especially to complete the Prevent the Ghost from Hunting with a Crucifix objective, is to use it early. Head into the house and locate the room as quickly as possible. Once you have located the room, place 1-3 Crucifix down on the floor. If the ghost is within range of one of these Crucifix when it attempts to begin hunting, it will delay the hunt. The range is unclear but it doesn’t appear to be more than 5-10ft.
It’s not the most reliable technique in terms of saving lives but if you’re just hoping for the additional money for completing the objective, this has a decent success rate. It very much depends on where the ghost spawns for the hunt and where you place the Crucifix.
