Star Citizen is no longer a lawless frontier thanks to the new update

Star Citizen might still be a long way off completion, but as of the weekend it now boasts the beginnings of a legal system, the cornerstone of civilisation.

"The new law system brings a much more systemic approach to law and order throughout the Star Citizen universe," says CEO Chris Roberts. During this time, however, you'll be chased by other players who have received missi

As such, Geil has validated certain Evo X II kits specifically for Ryzen PCs. Dubbed Evo X II AMD Edition, these kits are being offered in frequencies ranging from 2,400MHz all the way up to 4,000MHz.

Twitch is playing Teamfight Tactics and is already ranked Gold 4

Twitch Plays is a category of channel on Twitch in which groups of people of varying sizes get together to collectively play a game that in most cases is meant to be played by a single person. In 2016, for instance, Twitch played Punch Club and beat the entire game in 36 hours, easily surpassing the developer's expectations. Now Twitch is playing Teamfight Tactics, Riot's League of Legends-based autobattler, and it's doing a pretty job of it. Teamfight Tactics uses the same ranking system as Lea

Intel’s Core i9-9900KF is down to $420 at multiple stores, the lowest price yet

(Image credit: Intel)The Intel Core i9-9900KF was released earlier this year as an alternative to the 9900K without integrated graphics. However, Intel priced it nearly identically to the 9900K, so there wasn't much of a reason to buy it. It dropped to a more reasonable $440 two weeks ago, and now it's available for just $420. It's just a 9900K with the integrated graphics disabled, so you'll need a dedicated graphics card to use it at all. Some online stores give us a small cut if you buy somet

Dragon Age 4 setting all but confirmed by upcoming short story collection

Fans have of course speculated since then that Dragon Age 4 would head to the mage-ruled nation. An upcoming collection of short stories authored by several BioWare writers titled "Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights" lends a lot of extra credence to that theory. Each Dragon Age game so far has been closely connected to a particular location. Dragon Age: Origins took place in Ferelden, Dragon Age 2 was famously confined to the city of Kirkwall, and Dragon Age: Inquisition was largely concerned with the

Samsung’s 4TB 860 QVO is $100 cheaper than other 4TB SSDs right now

China’s anti-addiction regulations put American game developers in an awkward moral situation

Despite being the largest market for PC games in the world, China's PC gaming scene is also the most heavily censored and regulated. "If they do choose to take part, it makes these companies not unwitting but full-blown accomplices in the Chinese police state." "American companies are part of American society and should be institutions that we can trust, abiding by American values," Jay Stanley, a policy analyst at the American Civil Liberties Union, told the LA Times. But that's exactly what Am
