Devotion has ghosts, time travel, and more emotion than most horror games

At first glance, Devotion looks like yet another first-person horror hallway-sprinter doing a poor P.T. But Devotion uses all those familiar horror game trappings to tell a simple, tragic story about parenting, the culture of success, spiritualism, and mental illness in 1980s Taiwan. Poor little Mei Shin. Home sweet homeAfter school special Detention is Red Candle's last game, and it's another great horror story. Something bad happened to Mei Shin, and her father, the player-character, sees her

This is a much, much more granular look compared to the initial Anthem roadmap , listing everything from individual Freeplay events to such evocative additions as "new items."

"We've been considering this mechanic for a while and have been exploring it," a producer by the username RZELive said . Look for further updates during Fortnite Season 8 ." The prospect of respawning coming to Fortnite is especially interesting after the release of Apex Legends and its clever revive system.

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
