At E3, I had the chance to check out Shadow, a four-year-old cloud gaming service that's a bit like renting a high-end gaming PC. Unlike Stadia, which will start as a subscription-based cloud gaming platform that doubles as a digital storefront, Shadow charges a monthly fee of $34.95 (or $24.95 if billed annually) to access a virtual gaming PC. That's a huge jump from Stadia's $9.99 monthly subscription fee, but having your own virtual PC means you can put whatever you want on it—be it games or

The making of Path of Exile

When Chris Wilson was called a noob in his own game, Path of Exile, he knew it was going places. Like the exiles arriving in Wraeclast, Grinding Gear Games had to bring about order where there was none. We wanted to write our networking code once and get it right.”Frugality shaped the initial version of Path of Exile. It was the first potentially fatal blow Path of Exile had dodged. When the studio had built Path of Exile, it had plumped for a predictive networking model.

Microsoft Flight Simulator was the low-key best reveal of E3 2019

Phil Spencer, Microsoft's head of gaming, told us that the return of Flight Simulator is an example of the company's renewed commitment to PC gaming.

Flight Simulator still has a dedicated fanbase, and this is the audience Microsoft will have to work
