Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won't be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly "200 meters to 100 meters," Prokhorov said,.

Fortnite beats out Red Dead Redemption 2 for Golden Joysticks’ Game of the Year

The Golden Joystick Awards have determined that Subnautica, the undersea survival sim that is really a horror game in disguise (and if you don't believe me, give it a try sometime and let me know how it goes), is the PC Game of the Year. CD Projekt's upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 took the title for Most Wanted Game, while Fortnite beat out not-on-PC heavyweight Red Dead Redemption 2 to claim the overall Game of the Year title. Fortnite is a phenomenon, of course, and while I wouldn't necessarily argue

Final Fantasy 14’s newest expansion announced, adds fan-favorite Blue Mage class

Final Fantasy 14’s next major expansion, called Shadowbringers, was just announced live during the annual Final Fantasy 14 Fanfest. Unlike other jobs, the Blue Mage will "provide a unique solo experience" and only learn abilities from other monsters, which is how the class traditionally works in Final Fantasy games. While details are scarce, it sounds like Blue Mages will be a class that you primarily level in solo dungeons designed exclusively for Blue Mages. The popular theory is that FF14 wil

Even better, it comes with a surprisingly robust selection of meats—choose between black forest ham, turkey, or even roast beef. According to the ad, this is a hand-crafted sandwich, not a mass-produced hoagie where the meat and veggie management is likely to be messy. However, it's available now while supplies last (no rainchecks), except for Fry's locations in Manhattan Beach, Campbell, Fountain Valley, Woodland Hi

Remember marbles? They’re back, in a genuinely good PC game

If you've never been excited about marbles, you haven't been playing the right games. It's a game where you roll around as a marble and try to get to the end of an obstacle course as fast as you can.

Intel says supporting standard interfaces like VESA adaptive sync is a ‘priority’

Lest there was any doubt that Intel fully plans on supporting VESA's adaptive sync technology in its upcoming GPUs, the company doubled down on its intentions, calling it part of a broader priority to support standard interfaces.

Crypto-mining crash leaves Nvidia with ‘excess’ inventory of Pascal cards

Part of the reason is because Nvidia had trouble clearing out its stockpile of previous generation Pascal graphics cards. "Gaming revenue was short of our expectations, and our fourth quarter outlook is impacted by excess channel inventory of midrange Pascal products," Nvidia said. Nvidia also noted a 23 percent reduction in OEM and IP revenue "due to the absence of crypto-currency mining." We're finally starting to see that, with Battlefield 5 gaining ray tracing support ahead of the standard e
