Heroes of the Storm’s 2.0 update is now live, D.Va revealed as next hero

After a month aboard the hype train, Heroes of the Storm's 2.0 update is finally live in the NA region, with EU following later tonight. The update will also revamp player progression, uncapping hero and account leveling. And as part of the progression rework, the experience needed to level up a hero has been massively scaled down. The new currency systems replace real money with Gems and add Shards that can be used to unlock specific cosmetic items. Blizzard's clearly looking to entice new play

Overwatch director Jeff Kaplan hints at upcoming subtitle support

Yesterday, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan dove into the necro'd thread to say, okay. "Uprising is the first event to support subtitles," Kaplan wrote, alluding to the Overwatch seasonal event that got underway earlier this month, featuring balance changes, a pile of new skins, and a four-player PvE brawl. "We now have some of the underlying tech and systems in place to proliferate subtitle support to other parts of the game. The team is very passionate about adding subtitle support." Kaplan

Play the Mario fever dream mod Super Skyrim Bros in Skyrim Special Edition

Mario is Missing Back in 1992, an educational PC adventure game featured Mario and Luigi, and boy, was it ever was dreadful. Read all about the PC Mario game that time forgot. Back in 2012, a modder decided to remedy that with the Super Skyrim Bros mod for Skyrim, which created a new Mario-inspired adventure involving Goombas and Koopa Troopas, magic hammers and mushroom power-ups, and iconic bosses like Waluigi and Bowser. I'm pleased to report that the Super Skyrim Bros mod is now also availab

We need to talk about Hearthstone’s crab problem

So let’s consider a tech card that has been relatively successful lately: our crabby friend, the Golakka Crawler. On the subject of crabs seeing play, we also need to talk about the OG shellfish, the Hungry Crab. Hungry Crab is also a fairly narrow tech choice: like the Crawler, Hungry Crab only eats one tribe of minion, so Murlocs need to be very common for the crab to be worth running. All of which helps us understand the present failure of a once beloved tech card: The Black Knight. As a fina

Zotac GeForce GTX 1070 Mini 8GB drops to a sweet $340

Zotac's GeForce GTX 1070 Mini is typically the cheapest upgrade path into GTX 1070 territory with a price tag that hovers around $370. That's not a gigantic savings, but considering it's already the least expensive GTX 1070 around, shaving another $30 off isn't too shabby. Depending on the model, you could easily drop $400 or more on a GeForce GTX 1070 graphics card. Zotac's Mini model is a shortened version for cramped spaces, especially small form factor builds. It measures about 210mm long, w

Nvidia's newest promotion doesn't do anything to soften the financial blow, at least not on the hardware side of things, but it will get you started with a few VR games once you've dropped a wad of cash on the Oculus Rift headset, Oculus Touch controllers, and qualifying GeForce GTX graphics card. Once you've made those purchased from a participating vendor, you can claim three VR games for free.

Nvidia releases ‘Game Ready’ 381.89 WHQL driver

Just in case you missed the pop-up box in Windows, Nvidia has a new Game Ready driver package available. That is a larger collection of optimized games than is typical of Game Ready driver update, though not unprecedented by Nvidia. There are still a bunch of open issues Nvidia is working to correct, including over a dozen in Windows 10 and five more spread out between Windows 8/8.1 and Windows 7. "Having the best possible quality for a game at launch is important, and it becomes even more impor

CD Projekt Red developers name their favorite PC games of all time

The Witcher 3 bestrides our list of the best PC games to play today, and also ranks high on the best RPGs of all time , so it's always interesting to learn more about its influences. Our colleagues over at TechRadar did just that when they asked the developers at CD Projekt Red to name their favorite PC games of all time . The Witcher 3 was presumably out of the running for this question, or the devs were humble enough to pick different games. Lead level designer Mateusz Piaskiewicz got nostalgi

See first gameplay of the new tactics game from X-Com creator Julian Gollop

Original X-Com creator Julian Gollop teased his next project, a "turn-based tactics and world-based strategy game" called Phoenix Point, early last year. In Phoenix Point, humanity has been all but wiped out by a horrific alien pathogen called the Pandoravirus. Gollop said that Phoenix Point will take inspiration from both the original X-COM games that he created, and the Firaxis reboot, which he's apparently quite a fan of. “We are creating Phoenix Point by taking influences from the famed X-CO
