Asus announces a compact desktop with 3rd gen Ryzen and RTX graphics

Now that AMD has formally introduced its 3rd-gen Ryzen CPU family, you can expect gaming PC announcements to follow. One of the first is Asus—it's rolling out a new ROG Strix GL10DH desktop tower that pairs AMD's newest silicon with the latest GPUs from Nvidia. However, Asus is trying to be "one of the first" out of the gate, so it probably won't be far behind. Asus essentially took the same chassis from its GL10CS and swapped out the Intel foundation for an AMD one. For graphics, the new deskto

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold might not show up until after the Note 10

It's not easy launching a foldable phone in 2019, as Samsung is quickly finding out: the latest reports from Asia suggest that its innovative Galaxy Fold handset won't be going on sale until August. That means the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 might be out and available to buy before the folding handset that we first saw demoed back in February. Samsung then postponed the official on-sale date until a specified date in the future – we're still waiting to hear when that might be. The Galaxy Fold isn't t

Sci-fi tactical party game I Am Not a Monster is getting a full solo campaign

I Am Not a Monster is an XCOM-like tactical combat game with a Werewolf-style party game twist. It was released last year as a multiplayer game, and publisher Alawar Premium announced today that a single-player mode called First Contact is on the way. More intriguingly, it also promises to reveal the true nature of the monsters, which to my reading suggests some kind of surprise twist (!) "As the narrative continues, he will soon learn the true nature of these monsters, thus revealing hidden sec

The latest Overwatch short story might be teasing a new Baptiste skin

Blizzard's latest Overwatch short story reveals more about the history of the combat medic Baptiste, and the philosophical differences that led him to part ways with the villainous group Talon. And if drawn-out narratives for multiplayer shooters aren't your thing, there's also the opportunity lay eyes on what could be an upcoming new skin. Alas, it's already too late, as he encounters a pair of old friends who make him the proverbial offer he can't refuse. As the bullets start to fly, Baptiste

Final Fantasy 14’s director cracks up when asked if it will ever get classic servers

Though few might remember it, Final Fantasy 14 originally launched in 2010, and was Not Good. That 2010 version of Final Fantasy is forever lost to time, though. At E3, Easy Allies interviewed Final Fantasy 14 game director Naoki Yoshida and, with WoW Classic looming, asked a reasonable question: Would Final Fantasy 14 ever get classic servers that recreated its 2010 version? When it first released in 2010, Final Fantasy 14 was an absolute disaster of a game. If you want to find out more about F
