Fallout 76 roadmap reveals prestiging, Nuclear Winter mode, and more all coming this year

In a blog post featuring two massive infographics (which you can check out below), Bethesda detailed changes big and small coming in three seasons: Wild Appalachia in spring, Nuclear Winter in summer, and Wastelanders in fall. That's a ton of added stuff to take in all at once, so let's go over some of the major highlights. Speaking of new modes, the Nuclear Winter update slated for summer features a mode of the same name which will offer "an entirely new way to play Fallout 76, completely chang

This perfect, to-scale recreation of Hogwarts made in Planet Coaster is incredible

That's why it's surreal to see modder Onureth's immaculate recreation of Hogwarts in Planet Coaster. What I love though, is the attention to detail present in every single room. Basically, if a room was shown on screen at any point in the eight movies, Onureth has included it. It's probably one of the most accurate models of Hogwarts I've ever seen, and to make it in Planet Coaster must have been an immense challenge. If you have Planet Coaster and the required DLC, you can download Onureth's Ho

Best Anthem Javelin: which is the class best suited to you

At the moment, there are four Javelins in Anthem: Ranger, Colossus, Storm, and Interceptor. So, instead of telling you which Javelin is the most powerful, it’s perhaps more useful to say which Javelin will suit your playstyle best. The Ranger suit is brilliantly equipped to execute primers, which other classes can then capitalize on with devastating detonators. StormAt the moment, if there were to be a best Javelin, it would probably be Storm. ChoicesSo, while there isn’t a best Javelin, there i

Save $120 on this 24-inch 4K gaming monitor with FreeSync support

The best gaming monitors for playing at 4K are Acer's Predator X27 and Predator XB321HK, but if you're looking for something more affordable, check out LG's 24UD58-B. The name is boring compared to something called a "Predator," but it's on sale today for $229.99. LG's monitor sports a 23.8-inch IPS panel with a native 3840x2160 resolution, and supports FreeSync to boot. It lacks bells and whistles such as HDR support and a built-in USB hub, but for the price, it's hard to complain. It also supp

The Division 2 will have 50-person clans with their own progression system

With The Division 2's launch only a few weeks away, Ubisoft has unveiled the game's clan system. It's a big step up from the first game's non-existent system, letting you make and manage them in-game where you can all work towards common goals and earn clan XP. Everything clan members do in-game will net the clan XP, which can then be used to level up the clan and get unnamed "additional benefits" and extra customisation options for your clan's insignia. The latter's stock will improve as your c

Cloud backup company weighs in on SSD reliability versus mechanical HDDs

Backblaze, a cloud backup company that frequently posts HDD reliability reports based on its own usage, has offered up some thoughts on the subject, with an interesting conclusion. There are several caveats, not the least of which is that Backblaze's latest blog post on the subject is very different from its typical HDD reliability reports. It doesn't contain any concrete data on fail rates, as the company doesn't employ SSDs to the same extent and manner as it does HDDs. While the blog post lac

Game Boy Advance: why it’s the best way to play classic Nintendo titles

The Game Boy Advance was the pinnacle of Nintendo’s handheld offerings, supporting 32-bit graphics and an extensive library that caters to almost every genre. Not to mention that the Game Boy Advance was backwards compatible with the legendary library of titles that belonged to its predecessors. Luckily, the mighty Game Boy Advance was actually the home to countless classics that appeared on a multitude of systems, with the added bonus of being drastically cheaper. There’s no disputing the sheer

Star Trek Discovery S2.06 review: “Should have played out over multiple episodes”

It's nice to more of Saru's backstory being explored, but The Sound of Thunder really should have played out over multiple episodes rather than being squashed into just one. Star Trek Discovery season 2 continues its ongoing mission to fill out the backstory of its more secondary characters with episode 6, The Sound of Thunder, which is all about Saru (Doug Jones). With some story spoilers from this point onwards, here’s our verdict on Star Trek Discovery season 2, episode 6, The Sound of Thunde

Image 1 of 4 Image 2 of 4 Image 3 of 4 Image 4 of 4Pricing and availabilityThe Asus ROG Strix GTX 1660 Ti OC rings up for an expensive $329 / £339 / AU$569 price. Specifications and featuresWe weren’t joking when we said the Asus ROG Strix GTX 1660 Ti OC was a maxed-out version of Nvidia’s latest mid-range GPU. The GTX 1660 Ti OC is also more than double the size of the PNY GTX 1660 XLR8 Gaming OC and most other versions of the GPU, thanks to its excessively large heat sink and triple Axial-tech
