How to unlock Jun and Reina’s Character Episodes in Tekken 8

In classic Tekken fashion, Tekken 8 is full of lore, as well as additional “what if” lore content. With a brilliant new story mode and a lot of catch-up material jam-packed into the game, there’s a lot to take in.

Accompanying all of the canon narratives of the title are Character Episodes — mini arcade mode runs that feature each character in their final matches of the King of Iron Fist Tournament. Upon completing four fights, you’re given a gorgeous cinematic ending that showcases what would happen if your selected fighter wins.

However, you may notice that Jun and the new fighter Reina’s Character Episodes are locked upon first starting up the mode. Here’s how to unlock them.

To avoid spoilers for these returning and completely new characters, their Character Episodes are the only two that are locked. To unlock them, you’ll have to finish the game’s main story mode, which introduces us to Reina and provides more details about Jin’s mother, Jun Kazama. The story has 15 chapters and can be finished in six hours or less, depending on the difficulty selected and how you play. Thankfully, it’s a great experience, so it’s no drag at all to complete.

The Steam Deck might have a fancy OS that makes it easy to browse and play Steam games, but it's essentially just a standard handheld PC. That means anyone with enough tech-savvy can modify the device to their heart's content, loading different operating systems and playing games outside the Steam library without many restrictions.

One of the most requested features is the ability to see your frame rate, as this ensures your games are running properly and your handheld PC is performing as expected.

Whatever you do, don’t skip Final Fantasy VII Rebirth’s card minigame
final fantasy vii rebirth queens blood opinion famtasy

If you're getting ready to start your Final Fantasy VII Rebirth adventure, let me offer you fair warning: it is a long game. If you're planning to do every sidequest, minigame, and Chadley combat battle, you'll be wandering around Gaia for 100 hours. That's not an exaggeration; I hit credits in 73 hours and I still had a massive checklist of side content to complete.

Considering that length, you'll want to prioritize the best content if you want to get through the story in a timely matter. Some minigames are safe to skip, but there's one you absolutely should not sleep on: Queen's Blood. Not only is it a surprisingly deep deck-builder, but it contains a secret story all its own that makes it Rebirth's absolute best minigame.
All hail the queen
Introduced early in Rebirth's story, Queen's Blood is an optional card game that appears all over the world. It's essentially Rebirth's Gwent equivalent, giving players an in-world deck-building game to obsess over. That's become a bit of a cliché in modern open-world games, but Queen's Blood is the best take on the idea I've ever seen.
