All the excitement and anticipation for Resident Evil Village has taken a backseat as one of the game’s key voice actresses has passed away. Jeanette Maus was only 39 when she sadly lost her battle with colon cancer.

Jeanette Maus was the voice behind The Witches who are a central part of Resident Evil 8’s narrative as antagonists, and a variety of other characters. She sadly succumbed to her illness on Sunday night.

Jeanette had accumulated a portfolio of acting credits during her career including the 2008 dark comedy Effortless Brilliance, the 2011’s My Sister’s Sister, and last year she featured in Charm City Kings, an American drama.

The timing is particularly unfortunate as social media has been incredibly receptive of The Witches in Capcom’s upcoming survival-horror shooter.

Capcom have naturally shown great class with the situation and paid tribute to Jeanette Maus.

Here is there official statement:

“We here at Capcom R&D 1 are deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Jeanette Maus, the talented actress who helped bring several different characters, including our witches to the world in Resident Evil Village.”

“Our hearts go out to her family and loved ones.”

The John Rosenfeld Studios drama school, that Jeanette taught at, broke the news and posted their condolences in the process.

We imagine that between now and the official release of Resident Evil Village, Capcom is going to add some sort of tribute to Jeanette that players will see at the beginning, and possibly the end, of the game.

If you would like to donate and help her family, Jeanette’s fiancee has set up a GoFundMe page where people can contribute to help them out. We wish them all the very best.

Some of the Apex Legends weapon skins offer a cleaner iron sight compared to others, here are some of the best you can craft.

Apex Legends is well known for its cosmetics, with new Twitch Prime skins coming out every month, as well as various events every season that offer new Legend and weapon skins.

As well as this, the game offers skins for players to craft without having to go to the store. These skins are available all year round and can be found in the “Legends” and “Loadout” categories of the lobby screen.

Some of these craftable weapon skins actually offer players an advantage, especially the skins for the best weapons in the game.

While it isn’t a huge advantage, the weapon skins in this list offer players a more clear iron sight that takes up less of the screen compared to the default.

Luckily, Reddit user mnkymnk has posted a video showcasing some of the best weapon skins that players can use in Apex Legends for a better iron sight. As well as these, we’ve also thrown a few more in for other weapons.

The following list is the best weapon skins for players to use in Apex Legends. Keep in mind that not every weapon is on the list, as some weapon skins don’t actually offer any better craftable iron sights.

For example, the best Flatline skins for better iron sights are from a previous Battle Pass and the store, which can not be crafted.

  • Prowler – Dark Fright
  • Longbow – McFly or Pharaoh’s Curse
  • 30-30 Repeater – Wild West or Bullet Train
  • Wingman – The Death Ray or Merciless Wing
  • R-99 – The Kill Switch or Outlands Avalanche
  • Peacekeeper – The Lonestar or The Superstar
  • Sentinel – Biomechanics or Golden Spine
  • The Alternator – LED Rez or The Galvanizer

All these skins will offer players a more clear visual, reducing the amount of space the weapon’s iron sights take up on your screen. In theory, with these skins you should be able to see more of your target while aiming down sights, thus improving your performance.

These skins will require you to craft them with Crafting Metals. As these are all Legendary skins, they will cost your 1,200 Crafting Metals to obtain.

Make sure you check out our guide on Crafting Metals so you know how to get the skins you want.

The Los Santos Tuners update introduced the LS Car Meet, and this week players can get the Karin Calico GTF free as the GTA Online’s Prize Ride January 20 vehicle.

While players are enjoying The Contract update, the Los Santos Tuners update was certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of an important content drop for GTA Online. Many players love to earn lots of money, buy amazing, fast cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.

As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the update also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. GTA Online’s Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.

How to unlock GTA Online’s free Calico GTF Los Santos Tuners Prize Ride

To get the Calico GTF, you’ll need to win a Pursuit Race every day for five days in a row to complete the Prize Ride challenge.

Each week, players can unlock a new vehicle for free at the LS Car Meet. From January 20, players will be able to get their hands on this awesome car, but only until January 27, 2022.

That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win the car for yourself. Given that it normally costs $1,995,000, it’s definitely worth trying to get!

Here’s Rockstar’s official description of the Calico GTF:

Ah, the 90’s. Out of a chaotic fusion of grunge, dial-up, and third-wave feminism came the Karin Calico GTF, a car that took a little bit of everything and made something new: muscle heritage, rally chops, street racer cred. Looks like it’s time to drop the sticky VHS and curtain your hair, homeskillet: you’ve got some homework to do.

With GTA 6 rumored to be in development hell, the GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition out and not doing well, and the GTA V Enhanced and Expanded Remaster nearly here, the franchise has a lot on its plate.

The January 20 GTA Online patch notes adds the new I-Wagen SUV, plus the Drift Tampa as a free reward from the podium.

Obey I-Wagen in GTA Online

A new week means a new GTA Online update, and January 20’s patch has added another new vehicle in the I-Wagen, offers the Drift Tampa as the new podium reward vehicle, and has major discounts and bonuses.

2022 is kicking off with a bang, with GTA Online offering players plenty of free content after the huge Contract DLC update.

The series as a whole is in an interesting place right now as the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S re-release is due in early 2022, GTA 6 is apparently stuck in development hell, and the GTA Trilogy has had a tough time with players lamenting countless glitches that have made the game the lowest-rated Metacritic title ever.

However, one element of the franchise that remains steadfast is GTA Online as Rockstar keeps pumping it full of changes and content to maintain its status as an absolute moneymaking success for the Grand Theft Auto franchise.
