Scorn: how to solve the light puzzles in act 3

Scorn is a difficult game in just about every way. Not only will it test your fortitude as you attempt to navigate its disturbing environments, but it will frequently block your progress with cryptic puzzles. Each act in the game has a main puzzle or two, but just like the world around you, there's very little in the way of explanation on what you're even supposed to do.

What You Need

• Reach act 3

The biggest hurdle you'll come to in Scorn's third act is a pair of bizarre light puzzles. These are perhaps the most challenging puzzles the game will throw at you, mainly due to the fact that it is so obtuse in what it asks you to do. If you've been staring at this odd, fleshy contraption of lights and orbs for too long, here is how to solve the light puzzles in Scorn act 3.

How to solve the first light puzzle

Before we get into the puzzle's solutions, we need to figure out what the heck we're even trying to do. Your goal with these puzzles is to make all the inner circles light up. Sounds simple, but each light you activate will either turn on or off others. On top of that, you also need to account for how the lights will rotate, since some are connected. In the end, you need to have the correct lights on before spinning them into place.

Step 1: Select the middle dial so the connector is pointed to the upper right, and the top two nodes are not connected.

Step 2: Spin the left node until it's lit.

Step 3: Spin the middle so the longer bar so it is now pointed to the upper left node.

Step 4: Spin the right node until it's lit.

Step 5: Put the middle bar back to the top right again.

Step 6: Spin the top right node four times.

Step 7: Switch the middle bar back to the top left node.

Step 8: Spin the top right node until it's lit again.

Step 9: Spin the middle bar to face straight down.

How to solve the second light puzzle

The second light puzzle functions exactly like the first one, only this one has more bars and nodes than the first. Here's how to solve it:

Step 1: Spin the bottom central bar upward.

Step 2: Spin the left node until it is lit.

Step 3: Spin the upper middle node until the center node and top node are lit.

Step 4: Point the bottom center bar to the right.

Step 5: Spin the right node five times.

Step 6: Move the lower middle bar straight up.

Step 7: Spin the right node until it's lit.

Step 8: Spin the lower middle bar straight down.

If at any time you mess up a step in either puzzle, restart the checkpoint to reset it to the default layout and start again.

How to record gameplay on Steam using Game Recording

Between YouTube, Twitch, Discord, and social media, gamers are sharing their clips and videos more than ever. No matter what console you're on, there's an easy way to create a video of your gameplay to share with the world. For once, PC gamers were somewhat behind the times in this regard. If you were playing a Steam game, the only way to reliably record and edit any footage was to use a third-party software, and even those lagged behind in some features most would hope to have.

Steam has rolled out a solution — or rather rolled out the beta for one. Steam Game Recording will let you easily record, edit, and share your best moments with ease.

How to join the Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 beta

This year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 is really pushing the single-player campaign in its marketing. Set in the early 1990s, this story promises all the twists, turns, betrayals, and mind-blowing reveals the series is known for. But for a majority of players, that's just an afterthought compared to the competitive multiplayer. After the Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 Direct showed off the new movement systems and reworked Prestige progression, players are itching to get their hands on the latest and greatest in multiplayer first-person shooter action. October 25 isn't that far off, but it's long enough to make the wait agonizing.

How to join the Black Ops 6 beta

The only way to reserve your slot in the Call of Duty: Black Ops 6 beta is to preorder a copy of the game on the platform of your choice, be it PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, or PC. There are two versions available to preorder via the official Call of Duty site -- Standard/Cross-gen and Vault -- but it doesn't matter which one you purchase. Also, if you are a Game Pass subscriber, then you do not need to preorder to join the beta. If you preordered a physical copy, you will get a code that you can redeem at callofduty.com/betaredeem to gain access to the beta when it launches. Digital owners will automatically gain access on their platform.

Minecraft enchantments: how to enchant items and best enchantments

Minecraft had almost limitless possibilities when it launched, but over the years has added some very unexpected features and mechanics. There have been plenty of new items to craft and materials to find, but things like brewing potions and enchanting items add new layers of depth to everything you do.

Enchantments in particular are especially valuable for any player, or group of players, thanks to the variety of buffs they provide. They can make just about every piece of equipment better, but the process is a little esoteric. If you're struggling to master the art of enchantments in Minecraft, we'll make it nice and simple.
