How to catch seahorses

You might expect the more dangerous and deadly creatures to be the most difficult to catch, and they certainly are tough, but the tiny seahorse is tricky for different reasons. The main reason being that you can't catch them at all without first getting the Bug Net.

Step 1: Once you get to Chapter 2, take the "Reticent Girl" sidequest from Maki.

Step 2: Gather the Soy Sauce, Kelp, and three White Trevally to make the White Trevally Kombu Ochazuke meal she asks for.

Step 3: Upon completing her request, you will be rewarded with the Bug Net.

Step 4: With the Bug Net, swim until you find a group of seahorses and swing your net to easily capture one. They will only appear in the shallower depths, so stay near the surface to find them.

Now that you can catch seahorses, new menu items open up, as well as the Seahorse Racing competition. If you're a gambler, you can earn plenty of easy gold this way!

Asus ROG Ally vs. Steam Deck: here’s how they compare
Asus ROG Ally and Steam Deck sitting next to each other.

It's been a few months since I originally wrote my Asus ROG Ally Z1 Extreme review, and the device has changed drastically in that time. It's still a compelling device that easily beats the Steam Deck in raw performance, but a slew of strange updates has left the ROG Ally in a strange spot compared to the Steam Deck.

For those who don't have a handheld gaming PC, the ROG Ally still wins over the Steam Deck. However, as you can read in our Steam Deck review, Valve's handheld still continues to be a force in the evolving world of gaming handhelds despite its aging hardware.
It's all a matter of price

Rain stands next to Sektor in Mortal Kombat 1.

Despite always sticking to the traditional one-versus-one format for the main series, Mortal Kombat 1 has introduced a secondary system using Kameo Fighters that you can call in to assist you during a fight. This helps expand the roster from its already impressive ranks by including some fan favorites, but more importantly, it adds a new level of depth to the fighter to consider when picking your backup. These assists even have their own unique Fatalities as well! Even so, just like Havik, you have to do a little work to unlock these Kameo Fighters. If you want to take the fight to the online ranks, you will need to have all the Kameo Fighters at your disposal. Here's how to unlock them all in Mortal Kombat 1.
How to unlock all Kameo Fighters
Unlocking Kameo Fighters is tied to your overall profile level. You level up your profile by doing basically any activity in the game, such as playing Invasions mode and the Tower.
