An Atreus God of War Game is in a Perfect Position to Re-Use One of Ragnarok’s Best Tricks

Highlights

  • Atreus’ inclusion as a playable character in God of War: Ragnarok added variety to the franchise.
  • An Atreus-led game could feature Thrud as a companion, offering diverse combat mechanics.
  • Thrud’s ability to wield Mjolnir would provide a unique gameplay experience in an Atreus game.



God of War: Ragnarok brought the Norse saga to a thrilling climax, as Kratos and Atreus worked with their friends and allies to take down Odin. Throughout the events of Ragnarok, the game expanded upon what made 2018’s soft reboot of the God of War franchise so great, and one of the most surprising changes was the inclusion of Atreus as a playable character.

In 2018’s God of War, players could passively control Atreus as a way to assist Kratos in battle, but the latter was the only actual playable character. However, in Ragnarok, there are sections of the game where Kratos isn’t even around, putting Atreus front and center. As speculation about the next God of War chapter persists, rumors and theories have suggested that an Atreus-led game is on the horizon, and if that happens to be true, the project could repeat Ragnarok‘s dual protagonists in a compelling way.

God of War Creator Criticizes Atreus as ‘Terrible’

God of War series creator offers some harsh criticism of Atreus, characterizing Kratos’s son as an all-around ‘terrible character.’

An Atreus-Led God of War Game Should Revisit Ragnarok’s Dual Protagonists

For many, it was surprising to completely step into the shoes of Atreus, as Kratos has been the face of God of War since the very beginning. Despite the initial surprise, Atreus’ gameplay added some great diversity to the mechanics. If the next God of War puts Atreus in the lead role, then Thrud would be a great companion who could also open the door for diverse combat.

Thrud as Atreus’s Companion in God of War

After getting used to bouncing between two characters in Ragnarok, it might be jarring for the franchise to return to a single playable character. The Valhalla DLC that was released last year only featured Kratos, but that’s completely warranted for an expansion. Now that Ragnarok has established that two playable characters are a great way to offer new combat mechanics without overloading one character, a game focused on Atreus needs to continue this balance, and Thrud is the key to some thrilling gameplay.


At the end of Ragnarok, it seemed like God of War only scratched the surface with Thrud. As Thor’s daughter, she eventually became friends with Atreus, so making her his companion in a new game would make complete sense. However, there is an even more intriguing reason why she would be a good fit for an Atreus game; she can wield Mjolnir. With there only being a select few who are worthy of wielding Mjolnir, Thrud would present the perfect chance to finally fight with the iconic hammer. Following her father’s death at the hands of her grandfather, Odin, Thrud is the only rightful heir to the hammer, and the boisterous and heavy combat Mjolnir promises would be the perfect antithesis to Atreus’ more agile mechanics.

Atreus Taking Up Kratos’ Mantle


There has yet to be any official confirmation of an Atreus-led game, but if it eventually becomes a reality, it will be fascinating to see how much of a change that brings to the franchise. With Kratos and Atreus now being on separate paths, it’s possible for both characters to get their own standalone stories. If this is the case, Atreus will need some strong allies to assist him in his quest to find more Giants, and Thrud definitely has what it takes. Angrboda seems like a given in terms of companionship in an Atreus-based game, but Thrud is more fit to become the muscle of the group.

God of War has followed Kratos since the beginning, so it’s exciting to see the franchise begin to steer towards other paths. Atreus picking up the mantle seems like a likely direction for the franchise, and the young demigod will need reliable and strong allies in order to bring him to the heights of his father.

Alexandrina Sebastiane (Rina)

Faction: Victoria Housekeeping

Zenless Zone Zero- Alexandrina Sebastiane

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Electric
  • Style: Support

Rina is the head maid of Victoria Housekeeping and the one the rest of the faction reports to on the daily. Her demeanor is similar to that of a noble from an aristocratic family, and she is rather graceful in her movements. Thus, it is very important to her how she presents herself to other people.

She is often accompanied by two of her most precious Bangboo whilst indulging in her hobby of cooking. As Rina’s family holds the most influence in the company, most of its members have either served as attendants or maids to prominent figures in New Eridu.


Anby Demara

Faction: Cunning Hares

Zenless Zone Zero- Anby Demara

  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Electric
  • Style: Stun

As one of the original members of Cunning Hares, Anby is the most mysterious of them all, since her identity has never existed until after joining the Cunning Hares. Her background is pretty secretive and not much is known about her origins. Anby also does lack common sense when it comes to certain situations, and she has quite a quirky personality in various situations.

Despite this, she is extremely skilled in combat and one of the strongest in her faction. Her behavior and performance suggest that she has had military training, and if players have watched the Soldier 11 trailer, they will have noticed Anby in the background guiding her. This proposes the two of them have some kind of unconfirmed connection which can also tie in to how Nicole found Anby lost near some ruins.


Anton Ivanov

Faction: Belobog Heavy Industries

Zenless Zone Zero- Anton Ivanov

  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Electric
  • Style: Attack

Anton has been around at Belobog Heavy Industries since the former president’s reign. Handpicked by Khors for his sincerity and genuine personality, Anton is the figurehead for boosting morale among his coworkers.

Aside from this, he too has his quirks, like every other ZZZ character. He has been seen talking affectionately to his jackhammer and often calls it his “Bro”. He treats his jackhammer like one would treat a friend or human, often asking it questions and replying to it. Some would say he borders the line between crazy and others would say he’s just imaginative.


Ben Bigger

Faction: Belobog Heavy Industries

Zenless Zone Zero- Ben Bigger

  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Fire
  • Style: Defense

As the financial director behind Belobog Heavy Industries, Ben is one of the oldest members. He’s a humanoid bear who looks terrifying on the outside, but surprisingly, the most caring member around.

Zenless Zone Zero: Factions, Explained (Full List & Roles)

There are currently eight factions in Zenless Zone Zero. Here’s an overview of what they do and what their members are capable of.

Much like Anby, not much is known about Ben’s background and where he came from. Since the game incorporates characters with hybrid features, Ben is not the only one with secrets.

Billy Kid

Faction: Cunning Hares

Zenless Zone Zero- Billy Kid


  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Physical
  • Style: Attack

Billy is a member of Cunning Hares and a machine that is self-aware. He has been fitted with an AI construct, but most of his personal background has been omitted. The only other information available is that before joining the Cunning Hares, he worked for another mysterious gang.

Despite his exceptional learning skills and combat abilities, Billy is childlike at heart and quite naive when it comes to certain things.

Corin Wickes

Faction: Victoria Housekeeping

Zenless Zone Zero- Corin Wickes

  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Physical
  • Style: Attack


A highly obedient maid who lacks confidence, Corin’s main personality trait is her fear of being disliked. She’s overly apologetic when she’s either in a rush or messing up somewhere. Despite her anxious nature, she’s one of the most dedicated workers of the Victoria Housekeeping faction.

She completes each project with the utmost sincerity, even though she never feels she has done a good job. This anxiety and stress could potentially be tied to her childhood or background, where evidence has been found that she once had a serious illness and had to undergo surgery to rectify it.

Ellen Joe

Faction: Victoria Housekeeping

Zenless Zone Zero- Ellen Joe

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Ice
  • Style: Attack

Another maid working for Victoria Housekeeping, Ellen, is one of their newest members. As a student, Ellen has a responsibility to balance her school and work life. It’s because of this that she prefers to engage in activities that require less energy.


Since Ellen is a shark girl, with her lineage comes formidable powers – much of which requires a lot of energy. Thus, when required to use her powers, she often carries a lollipop around to help regulate her sugar intake.

Grace Howard

Faction: Belobog Heavy Industries

Zenless Zone Zero- Grace Howard

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Electric
  • Style: Anomaly

The main brains behind Belobog Heavy Industries and the talent behind all of Belobog’s in-Hollow machinery, Grace is the one who creates all of their sentient machinery. She’s a massive mechanical geek and often never stops trying to tweak or adjust her inventions.

Zenless Zone Zero: Character Tier List

Here’s how every Agent in Zenless Zone Zero fares when compared to each other in their ZZZ character tier list.

Her background calls for a sad story since she lost her parents to the Hollow when she was younger. She was then adopted by her parents’ friend – Khors, who is also Koleda’s father, making the two of them “sisters”.

Koleda Belobog

Faction: Belobog Heavy Industries

Zenless Zone Zero- Koleda Belobog

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Fire
  • Style: Stun

Despite her age, Koleda is known for being the fearsome President of Belobog Heavy Industries. After the disappearance of her father, she had to take up the position and fill in all the gaps to make sure the company didn’t shut down. She’s probably the most successful leader the company has had since she’s had to bring it back from the brink of financial destruction due to her father’s poor choices.


However, although Koleda puts on this brave front of a fearless leader, she is at the end of the day still a child. She loves sweets, playing around, and just goofing off when she doesn’t have responsibilities. When players reach certain Trust rank levels of hers, they’ll learn more about what she does on her days off.

Luciana de Montefio (Lucy)

Faction: Sons of Calydon

Zenless Zone Zero- Luciana de Montefio

  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Fire
  • Style: Support

A fiery cracker from the Sons of Calydon, Lucy’s speech is completely different from her manner. She seems to be from a wealthy family as she speaks in a very formal tone, yet she can be quite rambunctious.

As the Sons of Calydon are a faction that exists outside of New Eridu, not much is yet known of their members, but there has been evidence that Lucy might have run away from her family.


Nekomiya Mana (Nekomata)

Faction: Cunning Hares

Zenless Zone Zero- Nekomata

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Physical
  • Style: Attack

More commonly referred to as Nekomata, she’s a cat – Thiren, who just recently joined the Cunning Hares. Since she’s of a cat species, much like the animal, she’s extremely mischievous and loves to pull pranks. Before joining the Cunning Hares, she was part of the Red Fang Gang and had a familial bond with its leader.

After parting ways with the gang, she decided to strike out on her own, and that eventually led her to Nicole. Nekomata does have a slight obsession with Nicole, but there is no definite reason as to why.


Nicole Demara

Faction: Cunning Hares

Zenless Zone Zero- Nicole Demara

  • Rank: A -Rank
  • Attribute: Ether
  • Style: Support

Nicole is the leader of the “odd-job” agency, Cunning Hares, and the reason behind its name. Since she grew up in the streets, she’s been known for her cunning personality and wily ways of outsmarting people.

Zenless Zone Zero: Best Support Characters

In Zenless Zone Zero, support characters have different benefits to the team, however some are more useful than others.

Her background is pretty jaded, as she’s been an orphan bouncing around families her entire life. When she did finally get adopted, she ran away from them and lived on the streets of New Eridu until she founded the Gentle House agency.

Piper Wheel

Faction: Sons of Calydon

Zenless Zone Zero- Piper Wheel


  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Physical
  • Style: Anomaly

Just like her last name, Piper is the Sons of Calydon’s main driver. She’s a car freak and enjoys taking risks on the road. She also seems to have the mentality of an elderly person as she always refers to her faction members as ‘youngsters’.

Not much has yet been collected on Piper, so once trust ranks have been unlocked for her, only then can players find out.

Soldier 11

Faction: Obol Squad

Zenless Zone Zero- Soldier 11

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Fire
  • Style: Attack

Soldier 11’s background is the most shrouded in the game as most of her information has been redacted. There has been no reason as to why, but it could be related to her connection to Anby as seen in her character trailer.


Soldier 11 is actually a codename and no one knows her real name as yet. There is a chance that at one point in time, Anby trained Soldier 11 before going missing and joining the Cunning Hares. Soldier 11 seems to have lingering resentment for her name because of this and thus chose to go by a ‘number’.

Soukaku

Faction: Section 6

Zenless Zone Zero- Soukaku

  • Rank: A – Rank
  • Attribute: Ice
  • Style: Support

Soukaku is the youngest member of Section 6 and quite the glutton when it comes to food. Perhaps it’s because of her demonic nature, but she loves food and wastes no time gulping it down when given the opportunity.

Zenless Zone Zero players can check out this list if they wish to know the full information of all characters in ZZZ and upcoming Agents.

On top of that, it’s also the source of her immense power, giving her the ability to wield a heavy sword. Despite working for one of the most taxing faction divisions in New Eridu, Soukaku is rather uneducated due to her upbringing. This has led her to be a little too naive and easily fooled by a lot of things.

Von Lycaon

Faction: Victoria Housekeeping

Zenless Zone Zero- Von Lycaon

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Ice
  • Style: Stun

Lycaon is the backbone of Victoria Housekeeping and the reason for its reliable reputation that it has garnered. He’s in charge of all the members and often expects them to act like ladies should. This is because he’s the ultimate gentleman who goes above and beyond to be the most reliable option for his customers.


A quirk that Lycaon has is his obsession with cleanliness and elegance. Ironically though, his canine instincts tend to shine through when he is particularly happy about something, with his tail and ear wagging. Like most of the characters, Lycaon’s background is pretty shady as he seems to have led a more wild lifestyle in the past.

Zhu Yuan

Faction: Criminal Investigation Special Response Team

Zenless Zone Zero- Zhu Yuan

  • Rank: S – Rank
  • Attribute: Ether
  • Style: Attack

Zhu Yuan is a highly skilled police officer at the Public Security division and is even considered in the running to be the next Commissioner. She’s a model citizen and employee who does her best in all aspects of her day-to-day life.


Zhu Yuan is actually the type to never leave any case unresolved, which makes her track record in the division one of the best. It is with her unparalleled detective skills that she has managed to acquire her leadership position.

Tears of the Kingdom Player Builds Incredible Mechanical Rabbit

Highlights

  • Tears of the Kingdom’s enduring popularity is partly due to its diverse gameplay options, allowing players to create unique contraptions in the game.
  • One player created a mechanical rabbit, equipped with lasers to take out enemies, impressing the community.
  • Creative gamers continue to showcase their detailed builds in Tears of the Kingdom.



One gamer recently showcased their engineering know-how in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom by creating an adorable albeit deadly mechanized rabbit. The trend of creating machines based on animals continues with this bunny build, catching the attention of the Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom community online.

Since its release in May of 2023, Tears of the Kingdom has become one of the most popular Zelda games of all time. One of the reasons for this success is due to the plethora of ways to play the game. While Breath of the Wild gave players greater license over how they played due to its massive open world, Nintendo took things even further in the sequel. Thanks to the Ultrahand and Link’s other new abilities, players can create all sorts of unique contraptions to alter gameplay. Now, even a year after launch, players are still coming up with some memorable builds.

Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Player Creates Basketball Game for Moblins

One Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom player could be starting up their own Moblin basketball league thanks to the creative use of some items.

Taking to the Hyrule Engineering subreddit, a user known as kmarkow shared a mechanical rabbit they built in the game. The creation known as “Ruby the Remote Control Rabbot” features an impressive design that looks strikingly similar to a real-life bunny. True to its name, the Reddit user gave the rabbit a red nose and made it remote-controlled. In the video, Link operates a Zonai steering stick as the rabbit traverses the terrain. The creation also had a less pleasant side, as kmarkow revealed the rabbit was equipped with lasers, allowing it to take out Tears of the Kingdom enemies.


Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom Player’s Mechanical Rabbit


So far, this creation has been a hit with the Hyrule Engineering subreddit, with some users claiming it was one of the cutest builds they had seen in the game. In the comments, kmarkow shared how they were able to control the mechanized rabbit remotely. According to the player, they used a glitch, which they had learned about from other community members, to maneuver the build remotely with a Zonai steering stick. They also noted this was a “new and improved” version of the bunny. The creator revealed that this model was easier to build, could turn quicker, and looked more like the adorable animal.


Interestingly, kmarkow has a knack for recreating real-life creatures in the game with surprising detail. Previously, they built a replica of a mosquito in Tears of the Kingdom, complete with its long proboscis and pair of wings. Furthermore, they have shared Reddit posts of a sea serpent, a caterpillar bike, and much more.

While some fans are gearing up for the release of Zelda: Echoes of Wisdom at the end of September, creative gamers like kmarkow will likely continue to get more mileage out of Tears of the Kingdom. Despite the lack of new DLC, Tears of the Kingdom‘s impressive list of abilities should keep players going for the foreseeable future, meaning more builds based on real-life animals could appear on the internet.

Pokemon Fans Call for Change to How Nicknames Work

Published

on

Spread the love

Highlights

  • Fans want Game Freak to allow nickname changes for event Pokemon and traded Pokemon in future titles.
  • The limitation on nicknaming Pokemon is causing frustration among players, who desire this ability.
  • While some rare instances have allowed renaming of event Pokemon, fans shouldn’t expect this restriction to change soon.



Pokemon fans aren’t happy about the restrictions on nicknaming their Pokemon in the games. A recent conversation highlights problems with the system and has fans urging developer Game Freak to change course in future Pokemon titles.

From the beginning of the Pokemon series, players who catch a new Pokemon are given the option to give the creature a nickname. While it isn’t mandatory, players sometimes give their Pokemon nicknames to help separate them from other catches of the same species, or even just for the fun of it. However, the way nicknaming in the game works is causing headaches for some fans, and has led to them wishing things would change.

Pokemon Fan Designs Incredible Convergent Forms for Drowzee and Hypno

A Pokemon fan gives the Psychic Pokemon called Drowzee and Hypno some sharp makeovers and shares their efforts for all to see.

Pokemon fan TheAzureAzazel shared their thoughts on Reddit, where many other players have since added their voices to the conversation. TheAzureAzazel points out that not being able to nickname event Pokemon is a huge inconvenience to them, and that it’s a frustrating limitation. With very limited exceptions, players are stuck with whatever nickname a Pokemon has when it’s given to them via an event. TheAzureAzazel says that even the ability to change the nickname just once would be great, but that’s not usually an option.


Pokemon Nickname Change Restrictions Frustrate Fans

Fellow players have agreed with TheAzureAzazel, and also pointed out that similar problems exist for traded Pokemon. If a Pokemon has a nickname when it’s traded, that name can’t be changed afterward. If a player knows the person they’re trading with personally, they may be able to ask them to change the nickname, either before trading the Pokemon or even by trading it back to do so. However, outside of those options, players are usually stuck with whatever nickname other trainers come up with.


There have been rare instances where players have been allowed to change the name of event Pokemon, but it’s not the standard. This has left some fans wondering why it was an option with select event Pokemon in past titles. For example, one fan pointed out that they were able to rename their event Shiny Zeraora from Pokemon Sword and Shield, but isn’t consistently something that’s allowed. Some fans were also interested in being able to revert a Pokemon back to its default species name, especially when faced with an offensive or weird nickname, but that’s not possible, either.


Game Freak regularly makes tweaks to the systems in Pokemon games, so it’s not out of the question that this could change at some point in the future. However, considering this has generally been a restriction since the Gen 1 Pokemon games, fans shouldn’t count on it.
