How to dunk the basketball

The basketball and bucket necessary for earning the Boom Chat Kalaka trophy are located in the Slums, the first inhabited area you'll come across early in your adventure through Stray. You'll return here a handful of times throughout the first half of the game, giving you multiple chances to earn the trophy. If you find yourself too far in the story and unable to return to the Slums, don't worry too much, as you can load up earlier chapters and explore the area to your heart's content.

The Slums is an underground dystopian city filled with robots to speak to and many quests to tackle, but you won't have to worry about any of that to earn the Boom Chat Kalaka trophy. Instead, you need to head to the open area where you first met the Guardian robot wearing a red robe, easily identifiable by some nearby trees and a bright light shining down.

Facing the Guardian, turn right and look for a basketball sitting atop the nearby stairs. There is a white bucket embedded in the ground below, and you'll need to hit the ball into it. Slowly walk straight at the ball and lightly tap it with your head to send it down and into the bucket, which will instantly reward you with the Boom Chata Kalaka trophy.

Death Stranding 2: release date speculation, trailers, gameplay, and more
Sam Bridges walks on a ridge in front of the moon.

There were plenty of hints along the way, and even some leaks by the leading man himself, but it was only made official at the Game Awards 2022 that Death Stranding 2: On the Beach is on its way. Coming from the same influential and creative mind as the original, as well as the Metal Gear franchise before it, Hideo Kojima introduced the game himself. Of course, nothing about Kojima's games are straight forward, and what was revealed about Death Stranding 2 probably raised more questions than it answered. We're strapping on our boots, connecting to our BBs, and are ready to make the trek to find out everything there is about Death Stranding 2.
Release date speculation

Death Stranding 2: On the Beach only has the wide release window of 2025.

Eve floating in a neon tunnel.

You might recall this title but find that the name doesn't match up. If so, you aren't wrong -- what was originally revealed as Project EVE has been given the official title of Stellar Blade. This game caught the eye of fans of stylish character-action titles in the same vein as the Bayonetta or Devil May Cry games, only with a very unique sci-fi-inspired setting.

However, most of the game's important details still either remain unknown or hidden in other sources. There's no need for you to hack in and try to scrub all this data for yourself.

Honkai: Star Rail 2.0’s interstellar whodunnit mystery is its best chapter yet
Firefly white-haired girl talking to Trailblazer tall gray-haired girl in Honkai: Star Rail Penacony viewpoint

When I boot up Honkai: Star Rail to try its 2.0 update, I immediately take off to its new planet, Penacony, the Land of Dreams. As soon as I check into my hotel room, an introductory chapter passes me between pretty, charming people who seem to ask me the same question at every turn: Are you sure you want to trust me?

It’s a question that ties in with the recurring theme of destiny Star Rail sows in its prologue and strengthens it with narrative and gameplay told over the course of Penacony’s entry arc. While Honkai: Star Rail's side quests historically don't change the fates of playable characters, they can for less significant ones. Its 2.0 update takes that one step further.
