Elden Ring boss Radahn has attacks you still haven't even seen

An Elden Ring player has just discovered a hidden attack that Starscourge Radahn has been sitting on for months. 

FromSoftware's soulslike came out in February, giving masochistic players an abundance of time for repeated playthroughs. Since its launch, the relationship between Elden Ring players and the game's bosses has been a rocky one. Updates have nerfed cheesing methods, as well as accidentally making Radahn easier to beat before promptly giving him his power back.   

But if you think you finally have Radahn all figured out, think again. After beating the game five times already, children's book illustrator Emma Ward ran into this surprise spin attack which she shared on Twitter

The replies suggest Radahn's whirling dance of death is as much of a shock to the Elden Ring community at large as it was for Ward. One Twitter user says they've sunk over 200 hours into the game and have yet to see it. Someone else has beaten the game around six times and didn't encounter it until this week.

There are a couple of players claiming to have run into it on their first playthrough, with one saying it's happened every time they've encountered him. After much speculation about what could trigger the spin attack, including NG+ and good old RNG , one Twitter user thinks they have the answer.

"It's the spacing between you and him! This is a rarer attack for Radahn but if you're in the right range I think he can chain that move 3 or 4 times."

Still full of surprises

Radahn isn't the only Elden Ring boss surprising players with attacks so rare that barely anyone's seen them. In the same thread, @DNuatun posted a clip of Radagon  absolutely going to town on them.

"I beat the game so many times and have fought Radagon a lot, especially on my level 1 run and I've never seen him do this," exclaimed someone in the replies.

The revelations keep on coming, with @rao_ruthwik sharing a snippet of the Regal Ancestor Spirit rolling around like "regular goats". It was tweeted in response to another user sharing that tidbit of info.

The Elden Beasts grab attack is also news for some folks. And as @DNuatun goes on to comment,  "It just make me wonder how many attacks we have never seen...".

If you're running through the game and need some help with the big boys, be sure to swing by our Elden Ring bosses guide. It'll prepare you for some of the more common attacks at least. But at this rate, who knows what else the bosses have hidden up their sleeves.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

I replaced my Steam Deck’s noisy fan and am so happy I did

Photo by Sean Hollister / The Verge 160 hours into Elden Ring, I’m sure of one thing: the single most annoying thing about my Steam Deck is its whiny fan. And now, I’m so happy to report there’s a way to fix it. It takes roughly 15 minutes and $30 — depending on where you live — to install a replacement fan from iFixit. Five days ago, the repair company finally got a large shipment of those fans , and I bought one right away. Now, my Steam Deck’s tiny screech is gone. Is the fan still loud? Yes, yes it is, but it’s a whoosh instead of a whine. I like to think of it as the sound of air escaping the Deck’s vents, but mostly, I don’t think about it at all. I can easily tune out the new whoosh, whereas the whine always managed to get my attention even after Valve tweaked its software to bring the fan noise down. In fact, the new fan has less whine than the electrical tape trick I showed you in April , and — YMMV — seems to be oh-so-slightly quieter overall. I did an admittedly

You can make your new Pixel look like a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle

A cool thing about Google’s Pixel 6 series phones is their unique camera bar design . If the finish of that strip were a different color than black — specifically blue, orange, purple, or red — it would totally look kind of like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles . And now that you can’t unsee the resemblance, device outfitter Dbrand would like to help make your Pixel 6 device look like one of your favorite childhood heroes. With Google’s latest phone the Pixel 6a releasing next week , Dbrand decided it's a good time to revisit the sewers and launch its Teenage Mutant Ninja Pixels decals for all three phones. They match the green heroes-in-a-half-shell plus their masks, and include four camera decal strips that reflect the colors of Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael. Personally, I think the Pixel 6a’s two-camera array does the best job looking like proper eyes (the spidery camera array of the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, not so much). Available now for the Pixel 6a: https://
