Zero Latency brings free-roam multiplayer VR to MGM Grand Las Vegas

Survival Trailer
For those looking to fight an undead hoard with a group of friends, it is time to take a trip to Las Vegas. Zero Latency, the free-roam virtual reality experience, is coming to the Level Up gaming lounge inside the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. This marks the first location for the experience on the West Coast.

Up to eight players can immerse themselves in the 2,000-square-foot virtual reality arena, allowing them to physically wander considerable distances while completing challenges with other players.

“When it comes to playing games, and exploring new worlds in virtual reality, more people means more fun,” says Tim Ruse, CEO of Zero Latency. “Technology can often be isolating but we are determined to continue to design games and experiences that bring people together to have mind-blowing VR adventures and forge real memories that can last a lifetime.”

Once a team is formed, they can choose from three different games for a 30-minute experience. Zombie Survival traps the players in the middle of a zombie apocalypse. Players must utilize an arsenal of weapons and band together to take down waves of zombies. Between waves, they must rebuild safety barriers and last until the rescue team arrives. In Singularity, players enter a secretive military research space station. Rogue robots and drones come after the players through narrow hallways in zero gravity. For more of a puzzle experience, Engineerium is a fantasy adventure full of flying whales, giant parrots, and colorful creatures. Players must work together to solve physics-based problems in order to progress along floating platforms.

Without Zero Latency headsets, the arena is nothing more than a large open space without obstacles. The headest provided is an OSVR HDK2 headset paired with a military-grade backpack containing a high-performance Alienware gaming computer. Once users don the whole setup, the empty space becomes whatever the game wants. Players see each other as full-motion avatars as they walk through corridors, step around corners, and more. The players who communicate and strategize the most have a chance to earn the highest scores.

Reservations to experience Zero Latency at Level Up will be made available starting September 8. Visit MGM Grand’s website for more details.

All Trinkets in Tales of Kenzera: Zau, explained
The main character of Tales of Kenzera: Zau stands with two elemental items.

Your main upgrades in a metroidvania like Tales of Kenzera: Zau will always be your new abilities. These transform the way you move and fight, but there are other ways you can make Zau a more powerful shaman. Trinkets are introduced right away, but aren't given away as freely as you might think. Each one requires you to overcome a small trial that tests your platforming abilities off the main path. Technically, you can miss every single one aside from the one you begin the game with. Even though there are a few fast travel points, backtracking isn't a particularly fun experience. Here are all the Trinket locations in Tales of Kenzera: Zau, plus which ones you should equip.
All Trinket locations
You can see which zones have Trinkets on the map, and for the most part, you will be able to grab them as you navigate through them for the first time. Here are each of the Trinket locations roughly in the order you should naturally be able to get them.
Battering Stance
This is the Trinket you begin the game with and is equipped by default.
Lifted Spirit

The first Trinket is found in this side path trial in The Buluu Caverns.

How to start The Forgotten Kingdom DLC in Remnant 2
Invoker

Remnant 2 is a massive game that already boasts nearly endless replayability, but that isn't stopping developer Gunfire Games from adding even more to do in the popular looter shooter. The game's new DLC, The Forgotten Kingdom, provides players with a substantial amount of extra stuff to check out, such as new biomes to explore, an additional archetype known as The Invoker, and plenty of fresh enemies to take down. If you're ready to see all of what The Forgotten Kingdom DLC has to offer, read on to learn how to access it from within the game.
How to start The Forgotten Kingdom DLC
The first step in accessing The Forgotten Kingdom DLC is to ensure you've purchased and downloaded it. You can buy the standalone version from your respective storefront for $10, or you can opt to snag the $25 bundle, which includes The Awakened King, The Forgotten Kingdom, and another future DLC that has yet to be announced. If you intend to play the full trilogy of DLCs, the former is your best option, as you'll save five bucks off the total cost of all three.

Once you've purchased and downloaded the DLC, you'll be ready to access The Forgotten Kingdom by visiting a World Stone and opening Adventure Mode. You'll need to have completed the Yaesha biome at least one time. At that point, you can select "Reroll Adventure Mode" and choose The Forgotten Kingdom: One Shot on the right, which will notably give you exclusive DLC content your first time through. Keep in mind that while this initial run won't feature any older content, your subsequent playthroughs of Yaesha will weave DLC areas in with main campaign content.

All Baobab Tree locations in Tales of Kenzera
Zau fights a dragon in Tales of Kenzera: Zau.

While it wasn't marketed as being a particularly punishing game, Tales of Kenzera: Zau is by no means easy. You will have plenty of environmental challenges that can instantly sap your life, and the enemies you face -- especially the bosses -- are no slouches. When you first begin, it will only take a couple of bad hits to send Zau to the land of the dead himself. Alongside the Trinkets you can unlock through hidden challenges around the map, there are also Baobab Trees where Zau can stop to reflect on his journey thus far, have a short dialogue with Kalunga, and get a small addition to his health bar. Like everything in the game, these trees aren't prohibitively hidden, but you could easily pass one by and have no idea where it was when trying to backtrack. These are all the Baobab Tree locations so you can max out your health bar.
All Baobab Tree locations
There are six Baobab Trees to find in Tales of Kenzera: Zau and each adds a small segment of health to your total. When you collect them all, you will roughly double your HP bar. Here are each of their locations in the rough order you should naturally find them in. Most can be picked up on your first time through that area.
Ikakaramba

This one is very hard to miss as it is directly on your critical path. If you do, you can fast travel to the nearby campfire to grab it.
