A former Rainbow Six Siege developer explains why players think hitreg is broken

But there are many misconceptions about the factors that we often pin our shortcomings on—stuff like server lag, “bad” hitboxes, or ping abuse. That’s where a new video explainer by former Siege developer Dominic Clement may be able to help. The video touches on complicated subjects like what ping really is, server vs. client side connections, and tick rate. I regularly see angry accusations from enemies and teammates alike claiming that ping abuse is ruining the match. Siege hitboxes are brutal

The Division 2 in-game posters hint at return to New York City

Last month, Ubisoft revealed that The Division 2's first year of updates would be organised into three "episodes". Thanks to multiple posters throughout the game, players reckon the third episode will involve a return to New York City, the location of the original game. Posters reading "NYC After Dark" (which you could easily stylize as NYC: After Dark), are found throughout the world—the above picture was taken by Reddit user WillyPete. The poster teases "a return to the Big Apple" in January,

Super Meat Boy Forever will have ‘ridiculously hard’ DLC, says designer

Autorunner Super Meat Boy Forever, due to release next month on the Epic Games Store, will have"ridiculously hard" DLC post-launch, designer Tommy Refenes has confirmed. Speaking to DualShockers, Refenes said the "substantial" DLC would be joined by a level editor to allow for user-created levels. The original Super Meat Boy took a similar approach, introducing the Super Meat World level portal and level editor more than six months after launch. Other than the difficulty of the DLC, Refenes woul

Borderlands 2 was ahead of its time

"Hey, that's a decent improvement on the original," we thought back when Borderlands 2 came out in 2012. or reference trap cards in ages, but here they are in Borderlands 2, frozen in meme amber. Borderlands 2's lead writer, Anthony Burch, is not writing Borderlands 3. And between the release of Borderlands 2 and now Gearbox has been responsible for Aliens: Colonial Marines and Battleborn. A Borderlands game with battle passes, microtransactions, and a confusing variety of different currencies?

The Umbrella Academy will be back for season two

Given how the Netflix series ended, it might more be news if there wasn’t a second season of The Umbrella Academy. But it’s been renewed for a second season, Screen Rant reports. Without getting spoiler-y (though you can do that here, if you want), season one’s direction veered sharply from what readers of the original Dark Horse Comics series may be familiar with. So it’s not like there’s much of a second source here to tell fans what happens to the Hargreeves siblings. Season one of The Umbrel

Star Citizen’s next update, alpha 3.5, will deliver the game’s newest world — ArcCorp, a sprawling, overbuilt planet that makes Coruscant look like a model of urban planning. Female avatars may be chosen for player characters for the first time, among several other choices in an overhauled character creation suite.

PewDiePie officially loses YouTube’s top spot to T-Series

T-Series, for its part, changed the header image for its channel to a banner thanking fans for making it the world’s largest YouTube channel. The PewDiePie and T-Series feud goes back to August 2018, when Felix “PewDiePie” Kjellberg became aware of T-Series’ growth. He urged his fans, which he affectionately refers to as his “army of 9-year-olds,” to deter T-Series’ growth. Kjellberg’s channel has been the most subscribed channel on YouTube since 2013, but T-Series’ growth has skyrocketed due to

Sekiro mod adds Nic Cage death screen

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a brilliant game, and Tom awarded it 92/100 in his review. But if there's one thing it lacks, it's Hollywood actor Nicolas Cage. Thankfully, modder kasaiji has buckled to overwhelming pressure from fans and created a new mod that blesses you with Cage's face every time you die. To install it, follow the instructions on the mod's Nexus page—you'll need to grab the Sekiro mod engine first. A 2016 mod replaced every texture with pictures of both Cage and...er...Shrek.
