Genshin Impact developer will join the HarmonyOS ecosystem and release exclusive games on the AppGallery

Huawei continues to work on HarmonyOS, the operating system that powers its latest smartphones, such as the Mate 60 line. The potential of this OS is so high that it is already considered a serious threat to iOS and Android. However, HarmonyOS has a significant disadvantage compared to its competitors. It does not have as much app support, partly due to its relatively young age and increasing pressure from the United States.

To overcome these challenges, the company is taking steps to attract more apps to its store. For example, the McDonald’s app recently appeared on the AppGallery. However, realizing that this is not enough, Huawei entered into an agreement with MiHoYo to develop games exclusively for HarmonyOS.

MiHoYo announced the development of native applications for HarmonyOS

Huawei is making efforts to increase the popularity of HarmonyOS by entering into a cooperation agreement with Chinese game developer MiHoYo. According to the agreement, MiHoYo, known for developing popular games such as Genshin Impact, will create exclusive games specifically for the HarmonyOS operating system. Console makers like Sony have been using this strategy for a long time. To boost sales, the company releases games that can only be played on its console, such as Spider-Man.

The agreement applies not only to exclusive games, but also to already released ones. For example, Genshin Impact will receive native support for HarmonyOS and will run with much better performance than before. In addition, thanks to cross-platform support, it will be possible to play simultaneously with Android and iOS users. Both Huawei and MiHoYo are expected to benefit from these developments, attracting more app developers to HarmonyOS.

There’s no word yet on when the new games will be released, but this partnership is a positive sign for the future of gaming on HarmonyOS.


‘Gallery Dates’ is an app to fix the order of the photos if they have gotten out of order after moving them from the folder

It doesn’t happen as much as it used to, but it still happens: after copying or moving photos from one folder to another on an Android mobile, the order of the photos becomes a mess. The photos you have moved are placed at the top of the gallery, despite being older. Luckily, there are ways to fix it.

When it happens, it is very frustrating, as it can take a long time to find the recent photos to upload or send them in applications like Instagram or Facebook. We tell you how to fix it, to have the photos back in order.

Why are photos cluttered on mobile

Many applications show the latest photos you have in the gallery, but they do not have a standardized way of doing it or ordering the results. They can use the file’s creation date, the modified date, the date that is included in the EXIF ​​metadata, or the order in which it was included in the Android media provider. Different methods result in different results.

Most current gallery apps use the photo’s EXIF ​​metadata, so they are immune to folder switching, although there are still many toApplications that are bundled with dates after moving photos. Without going any further, Instagram is one of them.

That is, if you have 20,000 photos in your gallery and you decide to create a folder to include the oldest photos, Instagram -and other applications, including some gallery applications- will show those older photos on top. If you’ve moved thousands of photos, those thousands of photos will appear higher than the ones you took the day before.

The solution: an app

Once the damage is done, there is not much you can do except resign yourself or try to use apps to fix dates. That is, even if you move the photos back to where they were, they will still be marked as more recent.

An application specifically designed for this situation is Dates Gallery, available on Google Play. It’s free with a great but: fix 50 free photos. To use it without limits, it is necessary to pay 1.89 euros.

Reorder gallery after copying files

Before checking out, consider that it is not a foolproof application. Basically what it does is try to find out if the date of a photo or video is correct If not, suggest what date it is. To do this, it uses various methods, such as trying to identify whether the file includes the date in its name, which is relatively common in many apps.

After opening Gallery Dates, it analyzes the Android media storage and shows you, in the tab Bad Date those that you feel need to be corrected. It is important that you review them, especially those that have a giant Perhaps (or not) superimposed, since in this case the application is not too convinced of having determined the date correctly.

Select the photos and videos to which you want to fix the date and, in the first tab of the application, press Restore Average Date. What will happen next depends on the version of Android you use, because over time Android has limited or incorporated new functionality. This is the abstract:

  • In versions prior to Android 5: fix android media storage, but cannot change file dates or EXIF.

  • From Android 5 to Android 7: fix Android storage and EXIF ​​dates of photos.

  • From Android 8 to Android 9: is when the app is most complete. Modify the media storage, EXIF, and date of files.

  • With Android 10 or higher: Android does not allow apps to edit the media storage anymore, so the EXIF ​​is changed and you have to wait for the media storage to update itself.

However, if your gallery is totally cluttered and you don’t know what to do, it is a good option as long as you use it carefully, reviewing the suggested dates to avoid incorrect ones. Keep in mind, of course, the different limitations that the application has depending on the version of Android you have installed on your mobile.


Google Stadia comes to iOS through Safari: we can now play CyberPunk 2077 on our iPhone, iPad or Mac

Following the official announcement by Google, its cloud gaming service has landed on Apple platforms. It does not do it as an application, but as a webapp that we can access through a browser. Thus, to enjoy games like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla or Destiny 2 we just have to open Safari.


A great catalog already available in our pocket

According to Google’s announcement, if we have iOS / iPadOS 14.3 we can go to and start playing. On the website we will find a PWA (Progressive Web Application) that mimics the experience of a native app directly in the browser. Mention that in versions prior to iOS 14.3 the stability of the platform is not as desired, so it is recommended to update to the latest version.

Once we are on the website We can use any compatible bluetooth controller, the controls on the same screen or the Stadia controller that Google markets. According to some first tests, the user experience is really good and it is hardly affected by the fact that it is not a dedicated app.

With the arrival of this platform to iOS and iPadOS the door opens to a good number of interesting titles like Cyberpunk 2077, Assassins Creed Valhalla, Destiny 2, Immortals Fenyx Rising, Outcasters, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds or Sniper Elite 4, to name a few examples.

Apple TV app coming to Chromecasts with Google TV in early 2021

It is clear that the arrival of this catalog to the iPhone and iPad is good news. If we add to that the progressive deployment of 5G and its support in the iPhone 12, the truth is that we have a winning combination.


Murder of Daniel Langlois: illegal firearms sought from a neighbor

Police showed up at the home of the man accused of murdering Daniel Langlois and his partner in Dominica this weekend because they were looking for illegal firearms.

• Read also – Murder of Dominique Marchand: “She was my reason for living,” says her mother

• Read also: Murder of Daniel Langlois and his wife: the Coulibri Ridge hotel continues its activities in their honor

This was confirmed on Monday by the Director of Public Prosecutions, Sherma Darymple, contacted by the QMI Agency.

American Jonathan Lehrer, owner of the Bois Cotlette chocolate factory, was released from prison after authorities obtained a court ruling.

“We believe (Jonathan) hid firearms and so police requested and obtained a search warrant at his home to look for illegal firearms,” she said.

With the help of police sniffer dogs, they visited the property and recovered a number of ammunition casings, it was reported.

Mr. Lehrer and Robert Thomas (Rob) Snider Jr. are accused of the murders of entrepreneur Daniel Langlois and his wife Dominique Marchand.

On Saturday, Jonathan Lehrer was spotted by a passerby while he was sitting comfortably in his garden, surrounded by police.

“Not only did he appear ruthless, but he also dared to greet and taunt staff passing by. I would like to know what is going on. How can an accused of double murder get out of pre-trial detention and return to his home? Does this make sense? » declared the witness, saying he was “deeply upset” by the scene.

A prison official confirmed that police came for the accused on Saturday, but he is now back at Stock Farm prison, the only one on the Caribbean island of Dominica. Jonathan Lehrer’s lawyer whom we contacted does not appear to have been informed of this release.

Daniel Langlois and Dominique Marchand were found lifeless in a burned vehicle near their Coulibri Ridge hotel complex, neighboring the Bois Cotlette chocolate factory, in early December.

The two neighbors were in conflict over a public road that runs through the chocolate factory. The dispute reached the island’s highest court, which ruled in 2019 that the road was public and Mr Langlois’ clients could use it freely.

Why there was a music festival two kilometers from the most conflictive border in the world: Gaza

For weeks, Israeli electronic music fans eagerly awaited the Supernova trance festival, which was taking place in the Negev desert in southern Israel, approximately 5 km from the Gaza border. It just so happened that it coincided with the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, so the anticipation and desire to party were at its highest: “The time has come when the whole family is about to get together again. It’s going to be a lot of fun,” the organizers wrote on the networks before the event.

Nobody imagined then the nightmare which was going to take place at the concert venue.

A few hours later, those optimistic posters on networks became a message board of people trying to find their missing loved ones, after Palestinian militants stormed the festival by surprise and opened fire on attendees. According to the Zaka rescue agency, they have recovered more than 260 corpses of the place.

Tribe of Nova (that’s what the festival is called), had three stages, a camping area and a bar and food area. It was near Kibbutz Re’imm, next to the Gaza Strip, from where Hamas fighters crossed at dawn to launch their attack, they infiltrated in small towns and took dozens of people hostage.

The question that many people are asking right now is the same: why would an event like this be held so few kilometers from the most conflictive border in the world. But the truth is that the choice of location was coincidental. According to the organizer, the festival was going to be held elsewhere but for organizational reasons they decided move it two days before the massacre.

In fact, attendee Adam Barel told Haaretz that everyone at the rave had some concern that it was the case that missiles were fired in the area, but that armed Palestinians arrived and shot them at point-blank range, no one expected it.

The first sign that something was wrong was when a siren sounded at dawn warning of missiles. A voice boomed from the speakers above the stages and the rest area: “Guys, we have a red alert,” he warned. Some witnesses saw several rockets and then heard gunshots. “They cut off the electricity and suddenly, out of nowhere, they came in, opening fire in all directions,” said one on Israel’s Channel 12.

At least 50 terrorists broke into the area in vans, dressed in military uniforms and then the images that we have seen repeatedly on social networks occurred: dozens of people trying to flee, running through the sand of the desert, getting into cars to escape or crawling on all fours to take cover as best they could from the gunshots.

Those attending this electronics rave had been asked not to bring anything that could cause any type of damage, of course (sharp objects, weapons, glass bottles). Not only were they tired and helplessbut they were trapped in an area in the middle of the desert, open countryside and offering little to no hiding place.

“Normal” in the Gaza Strip

As we said before, the attendees had not known the exact location of the festival until a few hours before before it started. “The event will take place in a powerful natural location full of trees, impressive in its beauty and organized for your convenience, approximately an hour and a quarter south of Tel Aviv,” those who had already purchased tickets were told.

In this region, an area of ​​land of barely 360 square kilometers, live no less than two million people, making it one of the most densely populated areas in the world. Almost every day you can hear the noise of airplanes and, if not that, the sirens harmonize the atmosphere. The United Nations Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) defines the place as “uninhabitable.” Others describe life there as similar to being in an open-air prison, or even worse.

Not only are there high concentrations of poverty and extreme overcrowding, but the region is experiencing a state of continuous pseudo-war, with border controls everywhere and chained states of alarm. However, on the Israeli side, this type of permanent “alert” allows people to live their lives relatively calmly despite the missiles.

And the decision to move the festival had been made because life on both sides of the Gaza Strip border had begun to return to normal in May after an Egyptian-brokered truce ended several days of attacks. between Israel and Hamas, in which 34 Palestinians and an Israeli woman died.

In fact, Israel had reopened its commercial and merchandise border crossings, allowing the supply of fuel to the blocked area. Shops and public offices had also reopened their doors and people were walking again through the streets that had been deserted for weeks.

Both sides confirmed the ceasefire but gave different versions of the conditions, including whether Israel would stop attacking key Palestinian militants. A senior jihadist official who negotiated the truce said in a statement that the group was willing to stop missile launches in exchange for Israel agreeing to stop attack homes of civilians and militiamen. “We are committed to the calm agreement as long as the enemy complies with it,” he said.

However, Israel denied that it had committed to this and simply said that it would not fire as long as there was no threat. For the Israeli forces they had “successfully concluded five days of fighting against the terrorist group.” They did not mention the truce at any time.

Deal : Nivona NIVO 8101 in the test: The coffee tastes really good here!

The successor to the NICR 8 series comes with a new brewing group that is supposed to make everything even better. The test of the Nivona NIVO 8000 shows whether this is successful.

Table of contents

  • The new brewing group is convincing
  • Integrated milk system
  • Simple control via rotary or app
  • Outstanding espresso
  • Not suitable for the dishwasher
  • Nivona NIVO 8000: prices and models
  • Nivona NIVO 8101 in the test: conclusion

Next to the Hybrid coffee machine Cube 4 Nivona presented another innovation, the NIVO 8000 series, at IFA 2023 (September 1st to 5th in Berlin). The successor to the upper classFully automatic coffee machines The NICR 800 series didn’t cause as much of a stir as the “coffee cube”. But a technical innovation made fans of bean infusion sit up and take notice when they tried it out. We have tested the Nivona NIVO 8101 extensively and revealed what it is all about.

The new brewing group is convincing

The big special feature of the Nivona NIVO 8101 is the newly designed brewing group. Compared to the previous brewing units in the previous models, the so-called “RomanticaPlus” is more compact and has a closed design. In this way, fewer coffee residues end up inside the machine and the maintenance effort is significantly reduced. For weekly cleaning, the brewing group is removed from behind the service flap on the right, rinsed under running water, dried briefly and can then be reinserted straight away. Nivona recommends in the very detailed operation manual cold water, but warm water shouldn’t cause any problems.

Even apart from maintenance, the brewing group does an excellent job and, in conjunction with the other device elements, ensures excellent coffee results. The entire concept appears sophisticated because it has a positive impact on all areas of the fully automatic coffee machine. For this reason, the Nivona NIVO 8000 gets a small upgrade for the new brewing group.

Integrated milk system

On the top right you will find the bean container of the Nivona NIVO 8101. Up to 250 grams of whole coffee beans can fit here. A conical grinder made of stainless steel works one floor below. And it’s particularly quiet: In our test, the machine emitted a maximum of 52 decibels during espresso preparation – the top value to date among the fully automatic coffee machines tested. The grinding level can be adjusted to five levels using the slider behind the service flap on the right side.

The water tank is on the left side and can be removed upwards. Around 1.8 liter capacity is sufficient for daily use in most households. Optionally, a Claris filter cartridge can be inserted into the designated position in the tank. This allows you to improve the general water quality and means you have to descale the device less often. The water is pumped through the pipes by a 15 bar pump.

For the preparation of milk coffee drinks, the Nivona NIVO 8000 has an integrated milk system, the “OneTouch DUOplus”. There is a removable cappuccinatore in the central spout (height adjustable from 8.5 to 14.5 cm; double cover possible). The rubber hose provided is inserted into the spout on the right, the other end goes into the milk container. Great: Two milk drinks can be prepared at the same time. Not every fully automatic coffee machine can master this art.

Simple control via rotary or app

The Nivona NIVO 8101 is operated via a smooth-running knob, which the manufacturer calls a “rotary”, and a color display. A well-known concept that has worked well with Nuremberg’s previous machines. This also applies to the 8000 series: the menu navigation is self-explanatory and precise after a short period of getting used to it. By turning the knob you can navigate between the individual coffee programs; a short press starts preparation.

If you hold the button down, you will go to the recipe menu, where you can adjust the drink parameters. These include the coffee strength (five levels), temperature (three levels), the amount of coffee (20 to 240 milliliters), the amount of milk (foam) and the amount of water. The “Aroma Balance System” is also back on board and now offers five profiles (“Quick”, “Dynamic”, “Constant”, “Harmonic” and “Intense”). This changes the brewing parameters, especially the throughput time of the water during preparation. In practice, however, we always recommend using the “Constant” setting.

In addition to the rotary knob, the NIVO 8000 can be controlled via the Nivona app (iOS and Android). The connection works via Bluetooth, online registration or WLAN (except for downloading the application) is not necessary. As with the other app-enabled Nivona machines, operation is extremely easy. The app is intuitive and logical, offers useful functions and instructions and makes customizing the drinks child’s play. There are nine in total own recipes create, name, save and control via the favorites menu (in the app and on the fully automatic machine itself). There is also a small upgrade for the practical app control.

Outstanding espresso

With the Nivona NIVO 8101 you have the choice between six factory-installed coffee programs. The three drinks without milk include coffee, Americano and espresso. In the taste test, the latter classic showed outstanding balance. The mixture of acidity and bitterness is unparalleled, the espresso is very full-bodied, has a good strength and is also convincing in terms of temperature and smell. In addition, the different flavors come into their own wonderfully. The Nivona machine gets a huge amount out of the coffee beans and ranks among the top machines Siemens, Miele, law and DeLonghi and comes dangerously close to portafilter machines. Similarly, the espresso crema also scores points in all areas.

Many users rely on fully automatic machines, especially because of the milk coffee drinks. You can choose between cappuccino, latte macchiato and caffè latte. The milk foam reaches the cup nice and hot and creamy and also tastes great. Anyone who likes to drink cappuccinos etc. will definitely get their money’s worth here. Aside from coffee drinks, the Nivona NIVO 8000 has programs for milk foam and hot water.

Not suitable for the dishwasher

When it comes to care and maintenance, the Nivona NIVO 8101 also performs well. The fully automatic coffee machine notifies you in good time when cleaning or descaling is required and indicates when the water tank needs to be filled or the drip tray and the pulp container need to be emptied. Automatic programs with cleaning tablets or descaling agents are available for thorough cleaning of the machine and descaling. There are also simple rinsing programs for the coffee circuit and the milk pipes. Cleaning the brewing group is also easy – as described above. Last but not least, the maintenance status can be viewed at any time via the settings menu.

Simply wipe the housing with a damp cloth, it works effortlessly overall. According to the instructions, the individual parts – i.e. the drip tray including the drip grid, pulp container, cappuccinatore, milk hose and water tank – must not be put in the dishwasher, otherwise warranty claims could be void. However, cleaning by hand with a dish or bottle brush, sponge and dishwashing liquid is easy. You can find tips and tricks for using and maintaining your fully automatic coffee machine in our guide.

Top 25 Character Themes

The music that serves to define a character and express his personality, his psyche, his goals … is usually very good and appears very often in video games. These songs are usually called the character themes and today I bring you my biggest top to date, the top 25 favorite character themes, as always, the rules are not to put more than one theme per franchise and everything is based on my personal tastes , so let’s start:

25.Theme of Spy (Team Fortress 2)

This theme… I don’t like it, it’s not bad, no, but I just don’t like it as much as other songs that are even in the game, but in this theme there is something VERY special, which it symbolizes. This melody not only represents quite well the dark and merciless personality, but even so, sophisticated and mysterious (Like a spy, oh wait) that the character has, this song also perfectly symbolizes the style of play that is usually followed. most players when called on the Spy , silent, and deadly, and your victims have to be on the lookout for you to attack them from behind.

24. Tema de Ike (Fire Emblem)

Bum, as soon as you start, you can already get an idea of ​​the mentality of this character, honorable and will always fight for his friends ( I fight for my friends … Oh, damn it), but he will stop at nothing and kill armies if is necessary, which is perfect since he is a mercenary and comes from a tactical RPG where when people die, they die for real, and yes, this also applies to your side (Take the easy way, babes) The reason that is so low is that … not that I like it too much, I like it, and it does a good and very decent job, but it is not enough for me.

23. Ashley’s Song (Wario Ware)

Catchy, funny, I could even say naughty, this song always sticks in your head after listening to it or after hearing it mentioned (Sorry, now you will have this song embedded in your mind for the next week), it’s just good, good lyrics , good music, then … What’s wrong with it to be so low? Easy… It doesn’t represent the character very well. Ashley is a little witch who gets angry easily and can be put in satanic mode just by bumping into someone on the street, but she can also be affectionate with her little imp … Ok … The song does not convey any of those ideas of anger or affection, nothing, and that’s why it’s so low.

22. Theme de Bowsy (Super Mario Galaxy)

Hectic, mischievous and very… flashy music, just like Bowsy and his gigantic machines that you face when his music plays. The truth is from this point on that all the songs that are going to appear in the top will do their job quite well in both senses, they will be wonderful to hear and they will represent their character well, Bowsy’s theme represents his character well… But Bowsy is one-dimensional so there isn’t that much merit either, and that’s why he’s so low on the list.

21. Drippy’s Theme (Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch)

Although the theme is used on many more occasions apart from which the BARBARIAN grand master of the goblins appears, the theme itself is called Drippy , so shut up, eh? The truth is, it is a very curious subject, I like that touch to the Ghibli studio … Ah, it’s true, this song is composed by the Ghibli studio itself , and as you can tell, those soft notes but that give a cheerful and fun air … they perfectly complement the situations that appear and the character in question, the melody is not one of my favorites, but it deserves this position.

20. Lisandro’s Theme (Pokemon X / Y)

This theme is a more brutal and furious version of the song that sounds whenever we face the criminal gang of the game, Team Flare , what is their objective? Destroy the world, yes, Pokémon reached that point, they no longer want money or free the Pokémon , now they want to cause the apocalypse … And the person who wants that the most is the boss, Lisandro , which means that this theme defines the perfection that idea of ​​wanting to destroy everything and be as threatening as possible, ah, and it also seems that there is like a feeling of panic similar to that there is in a fire, considering that the criminal group is called Team Flare , that is an achievement.

19. Tema de Vorkken (The Wonderful 101)

Although in reality, this is not his true theme (This being a classic and aristocratic theme referring to the fact that he is a prince), almost every time the character appears on screen they use part of this theme to present it (Yes, they use that part with the choruses with those 4 notes). The melody itself, I like it and it serves very well as a boss theme, it gives a sense of danger, but it also gives a lot of determination … Without a doubt, it’s something remarkable and on how it describes Vorkken , well, it’s not bad, it perfectly describes his attitude while he was a space pirate, but other than that, it doesn’t perfectly describe his dark past or how he behaves after a fairly important point in the story. Even so, a good song, it totally deserves its position.

18. Tema de Magus (Chronno Trigger)

A dark melody that begins with a violin and flute solo and then begins a rather hectic and malicious melody that uses a wide variety of instruments and then moves to a trumpet solo that reflects quite well all the pain that he has seen during his youth . In addition to representing the character well and being a good melody that is quite catchy and often liked by many people, this melody does its job very well as a battle against the boss theme, it warns you of its danger with the wind instruments and then it begins the battle with all those instruments playing at the same time.

17. Tema de Elizabeth (Bioshock Infinite)

A slow, mysterious, sad melody … they are not usually one of my favorites, that’s why this song is so low, but this song has a very special touch … I would not know how to interpret it, but it reminds me a lot of Elizabeth’s attitude in the last missions of the game, which means that it represents well the more adult and serious part of the character and the game in general … The music itself, I like it a lot but not as much as to beat the next positions, but it is its message and that touch distinctive which makes it position itself here.

16. Philistine – Tema de Margaret Moonlight (No More Heroes 2)

The fourth best assassin in the world … Margaret Moonlight … She has two scythes that also double as pistols … You fight with her in the light of the full moon ( Margaret Moonlight , oh, I got it …) on the roof of a supermarket … And it begins sound this song. It is such a catchy, weird and mysterious song, the truth is, it makes me VERY RARE that this song has English lyrics and that it is not sung by any Japanese band. What is truly interesting are the lyrics, they are excellent and they give you a very precise idea of ​​how Margaret is in her work, how sadistic she can be, of her complex that she believes herself to be the Grim Reaper and what she thinks of you, without a place to doubts … sublime.

15. Ride the Tiger – Tema de Akira (Virtua Fighter 2)

HOW I LIKE THIS SONG, that optimistic tone that makes you want to smash your opponent’s face, those touches of electric guitar and that adrenaline percussion, I just love the rhythm, the happy and determined tone of the song, I I love it, it’s incredible … Unfortunately, the part where you must describe Akira … It’s not so good, it gives a somewhat vague idea, I at least, just because of the song I imagine a person who always trains and is always willing to overcome new challenges and he will be delighted because he wants to improve, and that is partly Akira , but the melody does not convey any of that conflict that Akira has that he does not know what to use his kung-fu for or what he is going to do with his life.

14. Masked King Dedede Theme (Kirby Triple Deluxe)

Although the main version of this song is the best known … I really prefer this song not only because it is more frantic and fast, but because I think it represents King Dedede much better during this last hand-to-hand battle that you two are having. And although I have caught the Triple Deluxe version and not the original Super Star Ultra , you can see more or less where the shots go (or hammer blows if we talk about this type) with this song, it is a revenge, that simple, you’ve been beating Dedede for the past few years and today he’s ready to beat you up with his new mechanical hammer in his rigged ring.

13. Theme of Cervantes (Soul Calibur II)

Spain’s representative in the mystical Soul Calibur tournament turns out to be a ghost pirate (Or something like that) who turns out to be the father of Ivy Valentine (Yes, from ESA Ivy), and this song could have been a perfect replacement for He’s a Pirate from Pirates of the Caribbean, everything sounds so much like a pirate adventure, with those trumpets that release fortissimos as if they were candies, the truth is, I love this melody with all its nuances that simulate a storm in the middle of the ocean … The only thing I can say to describe this topic is: Aaaargh!

12. Theme by Samus Aran – Metroid

For a character with no background (Until the much-hated Other M ), this topic surprisingly reveals quite a bit of what Nintendo’s famous bounty hunter is like . Only with the first low notes I already know that he is someone who is not afraid of danger and who has already faced several times against alien nightmares and when the trombone solo starts I always think of someone who never gives up and who will always do what unthinkable and when the flute and trumpet solo comes out, it gives you a very clear idea that it has never failed and that it has always been victorious … What else can I say about this marvel?

11. Tema de Simon Belmont (Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin)

It starts with an organ solo and there are a few beats and then… the chorus, incredible. Surely some are wondering what the version of the Portrait of Ruin game for the DS does here and not the original version of the SNES sidescroller , well, to be honest, this version is better worked, it has more instruments and I like that introduction much more than the original version, yes, you heard me, the introduction seems better in this game. Also with this topic, you can imagine Simon Belmont as someone brave and to whom killing an army of demons does not seem like a big deal, always ready to move on …

10. Stairs of Time -Tema de Kite y Blackrose (Project X Zone)

ESE PIANO, it is terrific, it deserves an award, it is what really makes this melody interesting and over time more and more instruments are added until there is silence. BOOM! A melody with voice synthesizers that really make the beautiful piano stand out even more … This song wins the place only for that piano, it makes the whole melody much more epic. As for how he represents the characters, it actually better represents their mission and what they are fighting for, to be honest, I don’t know much about the characters, I know little, but from what I know I think the music does a good job for describe the mission to rescue Aura, a kind of digital spirit that is being hunted by Skeith, a kind of virus … The truth is, the first time I heard that piano I already knew that this melody was going to be good.

9. Nana de Zelda (The Legend of Zelda)

Quiet, beautiful and welcoming, these are several of the adjectives that can be used to describe one of the melodies in the series or even in video games, my favorite version is Skyward Sword , it is simply iconic for me, this music always It will be for me as a symbol of the good and pure things that must be protected, and that is why I love this melody. In addition, all the adjectives that can be used with this song can also be used with the famous princess, simple, kind, etc …

8. Tema de Protoman (Megaman)

Protoman , Megaman’s brother , the truth is, it is surprising that this melody could have been made on an NES , those whistles are wonderful and the melody becomes a sad one but still gives you a feeling that you do not have to worry about Protoman it has passed all that suffering or at the least it seems … which is a perfect deconstruction of the character under construction, since according to the comic Megaman (Yes, there is a comic book), Protoman escaped from Dr . Light because he was afraid that he would change him and that is why he allied himself with his enemy Dr. Wily, so that he would heal him and not change him … That emotional conflict is reflected very well here.

7. Deadpool theme (Marvel Vs. Capcom 3)

Oh Deadpool you are the best fourth wall destroyer psycho masked mercenary I have ever seen, you are so crazy, funny and so illogical … This song perfectly captures the madness that this character has, the lyrics have almost nothing of meaning and at the same time they are a bit threatening in the chorus, which is just how a crazy, dangerous and illogical person is. And going deeper into the topic of insanity, I have heard people say that the subject is repetitive, but it is that madness is like that, repetitive (God, one day I will have to make a top of crazy video game characters). Apart from all that, the song is a pleasure to hear, it is a catchy song and those guitars are amazing, the best of the song.

6. Shadow Pit Theme (Kid Icarus Uprising)

ESA SPANISH GUITAR, whenever I hear a theme in video games with a Spanish guitar plucking, I’m sure I’m going to love it ( Gerudo Valley , the main theme of Wild Arms …) and this is no exception, it’s a dark melody, challenging, it’s music that tells you whoever you are, it’s going to show you that it’s better than you and that’s practically the personality of Pit Sombrío , he’s always trying to prove he’s the best and that he’s never wrong. I don’t know what else I can say about this song, it is very catchy, I love its melody and it does a pretty decent job describing its character, it definitely deserves this position

5. Dancing Mad (Final Fantasy VI)

Although when it comes to boss themes, I prefer the famous One Winged Angel to Dancing Mad , this 4-piece concert I think much better describes ALL the psyche of the dark harlequin that is Kefka Palazzo . The first movement of this theme represents (In addition to h**l) the desire for destruction and death that the clown possesses with many fortes and fortissimos. The second part represents Kefka’s madness and how it is illogical and dangerous and he will always do things his way (The choirs representing people screaming) and nobody cares. The third movement represents Kefka’s complex of believing himself a god to the point of copying Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor. And the ending, oh, the ending, a crescendo organ that begins with a crazy melody symbolizing the clown’s fury in this fight … and then turns into a sad, slow song … like a funeral song, meaning that even Kefka already he knows that he cannot win this battle and it will be his end … Without a doubt, a theme that perfectly represents the mentality of this person.

4. Tema de Guile (Street Fighter IV)

WELL OF COURSE! If you make a top like this, never and I say NEVER you should be missing this topic, it is ridiculously famous for being tremendously catchy and stick with any possible situation, and yes, I know it is a cliché choice but, come on, it’s Guile’s theme How do you want me to say no to this great song? Right now, there will be more than one person who is wondering, why have I chosen this version instead of the original one that is the most famous? Well, I have a good answer, you see, although the original song was catchier, the only thing it said about the character for me was: “I am American and I will defend my country, AMERICA!” and yes I know Guile is an American soldier, but the Street Fighter IV theme It gives me a feeling that this soldier, in addition to protecting his country, will protect his comrades and that he will question the orders of his bosses … Also, this version is better worked than the original (Yes, what you just heard)

3. Tema de Apollo Justice (Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney -Dual Destinies)

Speechless, this is how I was left hearing this song for the first time, I had considered the original Apollo Justice song as my favorite OBJECTION song! Among the many in the saga. But this, damn, this is amazing, it fixes all the problems that the problems had with the original (not that there were many either) and improves them to the sixth power, it’s incredible. A variety of instruments, constant violins, a catchy melody… I can’t ask for more, it’s beautiful. As for the part about how he represents the character, great, just by hearing the first notes I imagine someone serious but who is a good person, who questions their decisions and who, above all, is fair and wants justice to triumph, and therein lies the heart of the matter since Apollo he’s a lawyer… Without a doubt, this is one of my favorite topics

2. Roxas Theme (Kingdom Hearts)

Oh, another top where I mention this saga … Wow, in the end this is going to become a tradition, but I have a good reason, this topic … It is not easy to transfer all my feelings on this subject on paper, in the first place, it is sad, VERY sad, if I ever do a sad song top, this one takes the cake. It is beautiful, poetic, tragic … There are no words that are worth saying how incredibly sad this melody is. Secondly, it is a perfect deconstruction of the personality of the tragic character that is Roxas , the only incorporeal who has no memories, he lost his two friends (And he had to destroy one of them), he has to disappear to become one with Sora… Wow, and I thought I had seen sad stories… And that is the key word, sad, because this melody not only perfectly represents the character Roxas , but also symbolizes everything that is sad.

1. Professor Layton’s Theme

Oh Layton , oh… This melody is so good, IT’S SO… I suggest you do something (Yes I am a bit lazy, but this is going to be interesting), How about you listen to this song and put in the comment box how you think that is the character symbolizing the theme? I’m sure many people will put similar things …

Dell U4025QW: 5K giant with a lot of Hertz

Monitor manufacturer Dell is showing its sharpest side when it presents new products from its Ultra Sharp series at CES 2024. At the top of the line-up of business and premium models is the 40-inch U4025QW. The office giant is said to have an ultra-sharp 5120×2160 pixel resolution (i.e. in 5K) and offer a refresh rate of 120 Hertz. The high frame rate should ensure buttery-smooth mouse movements. This is a small revolution, because 4K or 5K monitors for the office are currently only available with 60, 72 or 75 Hertz.

Dell U3425W: Perfect for the office

Also in the Dell portfolio: The U3425WE, which is slightly smaller at 34 inches. The work monitor “only” has a resolution of 3440×1440 pixels (so-called UWQHD), but should also be equipped with a refresh rate of 120 Hertz. Further details about Dell’s new Ultra Sharp monitors can be found here. Are you still looking for a high-quality 27-inch device for your home office? Then the Dell U2723QE might be worth a look. SamaGame had it 4K monitor in the test.

Lenovo ThinkVision 27 3D: The special one

Lenovo breaks the norm with the ThinkVision 27 3D. With a refresh rate of 60 Hertz, the business monitor should offer a 27-inch IPS panel with 4K resolution. The special? The monitor shows content in three dimensions – without the need for 3D glasses. According to the manufacturer’s press release, the screen projects two independent images onto the user’s eyes, so that each eye sees the subject from a slightly different angle.

Samsung Odyssey OLED G6, G8 and G9

There is a real supply of gaming monitors. Manufacturer Samsung has three new Odyssey models in its luggage for CES 2024. The flagship is called Samsung Odyssey OLED G9 and comes with a huge screen diagonal of 49 inches (that’s 1.24 meters!). The resolution is 5120×1440 pixels (double WQHD), the refresh rate is a whopping 240 Hertz. It reveals whether you have to use the RTX 4090 for this detailed test of the OLED G9. Other new additions with an OLED panel are the Odyssey OLED G6 and the Odyssey OLED G8. While Lenovo wants to give the G8 a 32-inch diagonal and 4K resolution, the G6 will most likely come with WQHD resolution and a fast 360 Hertz. More You can read information about the three Odyssey OLEDs here.

Acer Predator Z57

Hardware manufacturer Acer is pulling out all the stops at CES 2024 and is presenting four Daddel umbrellas from the Predator series at the trade fair. As a competitor to Samsung’s Odyssey Neo G9, Acer is sending the Predator Z57 into the race. With an insane size of 57 inches, it should offer the maximum gaming experience and a resolution of 7680×2160 pixels (double 4K). Compared to the Neo G9, which achieves 240 Hertz, the Z57 “already” clocks in at 120 Hertz.

Acer Predator X34 V3

Compared to the Z57, the Predator X34 V3 is almost a dwarf. According to Acer, the 34-inch monitor will show game content with 3440×1440 pixels (UWQHD) and deliver a refresh rate of 180 Hertz.

Acer Predator X39 and X34

In addition to conventional display technology, Acer has equipped two models with OLED screens: the Acer Predator X39 and the Acer Predator X34 X. The technology is known for perfect black, brilliant colors and short switching times. Both should have a resolution of UWQHD, i.e. 3440×1440 pixels, and deliver a refresh rate of up to 240 Hertz. More Details about the new Predator models can be found here.


Manufacturer Asus has not remained idle either, but has breathed new life into its ROG series (“Republic of Gamers”) just in time for CES 2024. Starting for Asus: the ROG Swift OLED PG39WCDM, the ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP and the ROG Swift OLED PG27AQDP. Acer equips all ROG Swift models with OLED technology. But what’s special is the high refresh rate.


The 32-inch PG32UCDP is supposed to let content flash across the display at 240 Hertz with 4K resolution. If you reduce the resolution to Full HD (1920×1080 pixels), you should even get a frame rate of 480 Hertz. The 27-inch PG27AQDP should also be able to achieve 480 Hertz. However, it is still unclear at what resolution. However, the resolution is clear on Acer’s largest OLED monitor, the ROG Swift OLED PG39WCDM. According to the manufacturer, the 39-inch device will be launched with 3440×1440 pixels and a frame rate of 240 Hertz on the panel.


Gaming expert MSI isn’t going anywhere and is presenting three new Daddel umbrellas at CES 2024. All are equipped with OLED displays from Samsung (so-called QD-OLEDs). The 49-inch MPG 491CQP is a direct competitor to Samsung’s OLED G9: the MPG 491CQP also shows content with 5120×1440 pixels – unlike the OLED G9, however, it stops at 144 Hertz.


The MPG 321URX, which shows 3840×2160 pixels (i.e. 4K) and has a lot of power at 240 Hertz, can top this. MSI saves the highest frame rate for its smallest model: the QD-OLED panel of the 271QRX delivers a full 360 Hertz. Only WQHD (2560×1440 pixels) works for this.

LG UltraGear 32GS95UE

LG is really pushing the envelope with its new UltraGear 32GS95UE. The gaming monitor is 32 inches in size and shows content in crisp 4K (3840×2160 pixels) – at a frame rate of 240 Hertz. If desired, the monitor even refreshes the image 480 times per second. As with Acer’s ROG Swift OLED PG32UCDP, you have to put up with Full HD (1920×1080 pixels) in return.

LG UltraGear 34GS95QE and 39GS95QE

Can it be a little wider? Then it might be worth taking a look at the UltraGear 34GS95QE or the UltraGear 39GS95QE. Both gaming monitors have a resolution of 3440×1440 pixels (i.e. UWQHD) and deliver 240 Hertz. Other UltraGear models are called 45GS95QE, 45GS96QB and 27GS95QE. While the first two are equipped with an ultra-wide 45-inch diagonal, the 27GS95QE has to make do with 27 inches. The resolution is WQHD (for the 27GS95QE) or UWQHD (for the 45GS95QE and 45GS96QB).

Bonuses to the damage you deal with weapons are in

very desirable. The Imperial race gets a bonus when using Longswords, War Axes and Maces, which is particularly interesting and advantageous since these types of weapons are relatively easy to obtain even in the early stages of the game are, which means you can take advantage of that race’s bonus quickly. As a counterexample, the Nords’ favored weapons are only available later in the game.

Also, it is in the early access version of
The Elder Scrolls: Blades
quite difficult to regenerate health/heal, so the improved healing from effects possessed by the imperial race is of significant benefit whenever you consume potions. While the Argonians have Health Regeneration, this ability is only active during combat, so the Imperials’ bonus has a greater overall positive impact.


The Bretons, like the Imperials, get a damage bonus when using the early available and fairly good Longswords, War Axes and Maces. But instead of improved healing, the Bretons gain increased resistance to spells. While improved health recovery is more useful overall, increased spell resistance also has significant benefits, albeit later in the game.

Pleasing to
s new title is that it offers the possibility to change races at any time by paying Theordor Gorlash 50 Gems. Therefore, if you are not satisfied with your initial choice, there is no need to fret. Choosing Imperial or Breton will leave you with few regrets as you battle through the game and strike fear into the hearts of enemies.

How to change icons on Xiaomi phones with MIUI

Personalization on Xiaomi phones is so broad that MIUI, the brand’s personalized layer, Allows you to change almost any look without complications. Icons are part of these customization possibilities since the theme app has an infinity of these elements. In addition, it is also possible to install icon packs from the Google Play Store.

Installing themes on a Xiaomi mobile is as easy as going to its themes app and downloading one of the available ones, at least as long as you said the app (in Spain it can be used). Brand personalization allows completely change the appearance of the interface or choose portions: wallpapers, fonts or icons. While there are several ways to customize the design of the layers, including these icons: from within the Themes app, install a launcher or download icon packs from Google Play. Let’s see how to perform each method.

Customize the icons of the « themes »

This is the easiest option as MIUI provides everything you need to adapt phone icons to a wide variety of styles. Of course, with a downside: the appearance of the designs is generally too oriental, so there aren’t too many styles of materials to give an example. Still, it’s worth taking a look, you can find the icons that match your phone.

To download and install icon packs from the theme app, follow these steps:

  • Find the ‘Themes’ application among all the applications installed on your Xiaomi.
  • Choose one of the themes making sure they have icons (They should be in the majority).
  • Go back to the themes home screen and click on the icon at the bottom right, the profile icon.
  • Go to the « Icons » category.
  • Click on the theme you downloaded, then click « Apply. »

In this way you will not apply the entire theme because you will have selected only its icons. Of course, if you want to completely change the MIUI interface, apply the theme from its ‘Themes’ category. Also in your profile options (local files).

Customize the icons of a launcher

MIUI is a layer that offers many possibilities, but among them Cannot find icon pack installation on Google Play. It is a hindrance if you want to install the packs you bought from the Android store on your phone because you cannot use the MIUI launcher with them. In return, you have a plethora of interfaces at your fingertips, like Nova Launcher.

Nova is one of the best launchers that you can install on your phone. Clean and with an ‘Android stock’ design, highly customizable and with the possibility of installing icon packs. If you want to use your own packs with MIUI Nova, it is highly recommended.

Nova Launcher

Other launchers compatible with the installation of icon packs (the first two are from Xiaomi):

Apply your icon packs without installing launchers

Installing a launcher is a bit tricky as it’s nothing more than a patch that keeps fixing the problem: change MIUI icons with Google Play packs. Therefore, let’s see how the packs are installed in the MIUI launcher that comes with your Xiaomi by default. To do this, we will use an application to modify the installed themes: Theme Editor For MIUI.

Theme editor for MIUI

Theme editor for MIUI allows you to edit themes installed in MIUI. You can change any element, such as backgrounds, fonts or of course icons. And it does exactly what we are looking for: with this app we can apply icon packs downloaded from Google Play directly on other icons downloaded from « Themes ». It is the closest thing in MIUI to installing a third party package.

To use the theme editor to edit MIUI icons, you need to do the following:

  • Make sure you have downloaded the icon packs you want to install on your mobile.
  • Go to the MIUI themes app and download the one you like for its design and appearance. It doesn’t matter that you are not interested in its icons because we will change them with Theme Manager for MIUI.
  • Once the theme is downloaded, open the Theme Editor For MIUI app.
  • Tap « Choose a theme » and choose the theme you downloaded.
  • When you have chosen the theme, click on « Start »: all the changes you make in the application will be made on the selected theme.
  • Click on « Application icons » then on « Import the complete icon pack ».
  • Select the pack from the “Select Icon Pack” drop-down list and click “Done”.
  • Uncheck the « Apply changes to installed applications only » button. In this way all theme icons will be overwritten by those from the packWhether or not you have the relevant apps on your phone.
  • Click on « Back » to return to the initial menu of the theme editor for MIUI.
  • Click on « Next » and end the process with « Finish ». The app will create a copy of the chosen theme with the icons from the Google Play package. When finished, click on « Install » to have the modified theme is installed on the mobile.
  • Now go to MIUI ‘Themes’ app and apply duplicate theme manager for MIUI theme, the one that says ‘(Apply me)’.
  • Your theme may uninstall after a while, this is not a problem with the Theme Editor for MIUI: Xiaomi does not allow you to apply third party themes. If this happens to you, you will have to reapply the theme with the icons. Or you can register your Xiaomi account as a designer on this website: this will allow you to use third-party themes.

You can change the themes you download from the MIUI app and also some of the themes preinstalled on your Xiaomi phone. After the theme is applied, you can change the wallpapers to your liking to match the style of the icons.

How to find Warlord and Strauss research in MW3 Zombies?

Both The Warlord and Strauss’s Researches are part of the Tier 3 Mission Storm the castle in the Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 Zombies campaign. Before going to the warlord, you must first find the destination on the map, complete the mercenary camp, and then clear the mercenary fortress.

Related: How to destroy 25 zombies’ armor using Shatter Blast Ammo mod in MW3 Zombies?

Where is the research of the warlord and Strauss?

You can find Warlord during the Storm the castle mission after completing the first two chapters. he is inside a heavily guarded fortress, and he is armed and very dangerous. After killing Warlord, there is a chance that he will drop his weapon and, more importantly, Strauss’s research article.

Mercenary Camp

To access the final part of the Storm the Castle mission, you must first complete the Merc Camp and clear the Merc Fortress. The first part of this mission is heading towards the Mercenary Camp in the northeastern part of the map. To clear the first check, you must fragment each mercenary.

After clearing the Merc Camp, you will get the access card to the Merc Stronghold. You can also buy the key card for 2,000 points, but in this case you will get it as a reward for completing the first part of the mission.

The Merc Fortress

The Merc Stronghold is a little harder to clean. It’s bigger and there are stronger enemies, including the Riot Shielders. Make sure you have enough utilities to handle everything inside. Somewhere inside a fortress you will find a safe and you should start drilling into it. Be aware that breaking into the safe will attract reinforcements, so you’ll need to take care of that as well. Once you finish breaking the safe, you will find the fortress key card. This article, called Legacy Key Cardis needed for the next part, so make sure to bring it with you.

The fortress

To find the Warlord, you must access the fortress located at northwest side of the map (or top left if that’s easier). There are several ways to enter the fortress, but before that you need to take care of the attack helicopter. Once you destroy the helicopter, you need to make your way inside.

This fortress is strongly defended; it has numerous sentry turrets as well as elite armored enemies. Additionally, there are backup helicopters that will constantly drop melee mercenaries. After clearing the camp, you follow the icon and use the Legacy keycard on the gate.

Coming in, there would be two riot shield guys. You should bring them out into the open and take care of them. After that, you will be able to make your way inside the main building. Be careful; There is Bouncing Bettys on the ground and various spring traps, so watch your step. There are also inflatable decoys that will trigger a flash-bang once you shoot them, so avoid that.

The Warlord

The warlord is on the top floor of the building in the middle of the Fortress. After leaving the building, you will see a door. Behind this door is the warlord. Warlord is the toughest opponent in the mission, and he is more than equipped to take you on quickly. His main weapon is the shotgun, and he can rip you to shreds with it. The Riot Shield guys also protect it, and I recommend eliminating them first.

Be very careful when approaching the Warlord as his equipment is very destructive. After having succeeded in kill the warlordhe’s going to let it go Strauss’s research element so you can check two elements at once. Sometimes Warlord doesn’t give up on the search for Strauss after the first playthrough, so you may have to start the mission again. You will also collect Warlord’s shotgun, the Fire Haymaker.

Kate Middleton: her mother Carole is furious because of a family member

While Kate Middleton is currently still recovering from her abdominal surgery, a member of her family will soon find herself in the spotlight, which has made the Princess of Wales’ mother furious.

Kate Middleton has currently been away from the spotlight for more than two months. This forced withdrawal of the Princess of Wales is due to her recent abdominal operation. When her operation was announced in January 2024, Kensington Palace explained that she would only resume her royal duties after Easter, after a long period of convalescence. For now, Kate Middleton is resting at her home in Windsor, surrounded by her family. Her mother, Carole Middleton, watches over her in particular. However, another member of the Princess of Wales’s family could well jeopardize Kate Middleton’s recovery. Indeed, Carole Middleton’s brother, Gary Goldsmith, will soon find himself in the spotlight. Kate Middleton’s uncle will soon join the reality TV show called Celebrity Big Brotherwhich made his sister furious.

According to information from Sun, Gary Goldsmith was spotted doing some last-minute shopping ahead of his arrival on the show, which is set to take place on Monday March 4, 2024. Known for his intense partying, the multi-millionaire appears to have packed the rest of his family at back, who fears in particular to see him reveal family secrets during the show. “Gary said Kate’s mother Carole and father Michael read him the riot act“, indicated a source cited by the Sun. “They’re not happy about him entering Celebrity Big Brother. It’s infuriating for them. Kate doesn’t need this stress. They added that he might have things to say about Harry and Meghan“, also specified this same source.

Kate Middleton: her uncle had already tried to participate in a reality TV show

Gary Goldsmith had already made the headlines in Anglo-Saxon news last year. Kate Middleton’s uncle planned to publish a book aimed at “retaliate” to Prince Harry’s assertions about his niece in his memoirs. Having become rich thanks to his various activities specializing in IT recruitment, Gary Goldsmith tried to participate in another British reality TV show a few months ago (I’m a celebrity), but it was ultimately not selected by the producers. Kate Middleton’s uncle should receive a nice sum of money for his participation in Celebrity Big Brother.


Sons of the Forest: Get a wet suit and flippers

How to unlock the wet suit and flippers in Sons of the Forest? How do you put on the diving suit and how do you take off the diving equipment including the flippers? The new survival game from Endnight Games was released a few days ago and, as was to be expected, the successor to “The Forest” is enjoying great popularity. As known from other survival games, in Sons of the Forest you can unlock and build various pieces of equipment that make life in the game a little easier. This includes, among other things, the diving suit and the flippers.

Find scuba gear

So that you can explore the underwater world in Sons of the Forest, there is a diving suit in addition to a rebreather as diving equipment. The diving suit not only includes the suit itself, but also flippers. With the flippers you can swim faster through the water. But where do you get the diving suit and fins from?

While you can find rebreathers with the air and diving tanks in the north of the island in a cave on the beach, you can get the diving suit and flippers from a cave in the middle of the island (see screenshot for locations: 1 = rebreather, 2 = diving suit and fins ). In order to be able to fully explore the cave with the diving equipment, you first have to get the rebreather from the cave in the north of the island, since you have to dive a longer distance into the second cave and this is only possible with the appropriate equipment. At the end of the cave you will find the equipment consisting of a suit and fins, which you can put on via the inventory.

Sons of the Forest map of

Take off your diving suit and flippers?

Anyone who has put on and used the diving equipment may then ask themselves how to take off their diving suit and flippers again? How to change clothes and dress normally again? In order to take off the diving suit and fins, you currently have to put on a different outfit. So far there is no function in the inventory with which one can “take off the outfit”.

Buy Palia coins: Get coins for free?

How do you actually get the blue coins in Palia? How can you buy the coins and how much do the Palia Coins cost? A few days ago the open beta of the new cozy MMO from Singularity 6 started. At the start of the game, there is also a premium currency with which you can buy various cosmetic items such as outfits and clothing, but also things such as pets, in the in-game shop. Here one or the other player may ask the question, where can you find the premium shop and how do you get the coins to be able to buy something in the shop?

Buy coins in Palia

The premium shop can be opened via the menu at the top right using the yellow button with the sales stand symbol. At the start of the open beta, the selection of available outfits is still manageable, but that will probably change in the coming weeks. In the shop you can now buy the so-called Palia Coins at the top right by clicking the plus symbol next to the blue coin. The Palia Coins is the paid premium currency in the game. As you know it from other games with a premium shop, the Palia Coins are available in different packages and the larger the package, the lower the price per coin is usually. The following coin packages are currently available for purchase (prices and bonuses may change over time).

There is currently another promotion where you get a pet for free for the first purchase of Palia coins. If you have more than 3,000 Palia Coins, you will also receive the other three pets.

  • 425 Palia coins + 0 bonus = 5.00 euros
  • 850 Palia coins + 127 bonus = 8.50 euros
  • 1,700 Palia coins + 297 bonus = 16.50 euros
  • 3,400 Palia coins + 637 bonus = 32.50 euros
  • 5,100 Palia coins + 1,062 bonus = 47.50 euros
  • 8,500 Palia coins + 2,550 bonus = 100.00 euros

Get Palia Coins for free?

There is no way to earn free Palia Coins in the current version of Palia. Should this change in the future, we will add the information here. Incidentally, we can only advise against alleged “Palia coin cheats or hacks” that can currently be found on the Internet and on YouTube. The tools do not work and usually contain malware.

Payment methods: Can I pay with PayPal?

In our test, only credit card was offered as a possible payment method. Accordingly, the Palia coins cannot be paid for with PayPal at the moment. Should anything change here in the future, we will add the information here.
