  • 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,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and
    Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

  • As a storefront, the Discord Store has a cleaner presentation than Steam, although that can be chalked up mostly to the limited selection and a general lack of features. I really couldn’t tell you how any member of Valve feels about any particular game on Steam, so this gives the Discord Store a friendlier, more personal feeling. You can bulk up your Discord Library with games you already own from other services: Discord detects your other games and they can be launched right from your Discord l

  • I love seeing a 90% at the top of a review , given that it’s a relatively rare sight on PCG. This week marked the release of Return of the Obra Dinn, a mystery game from Papers, Please creator Lucas Pope. Tom Senior: Madden for itThanks to the London games I’m on an NFL kick at the moment. I’m about a third-and-a-bit through them and the pitches have started to become snowy as the pretend season I’m playing through enters its deep winter stage.

  • Each main character gets a gauntlet of fights tied together by some art stills and voiced dialogue; this covers the game’s main plot and fills you in on each character’s backstory. Alternatively you can create your own fighter using Soulcalibur’s bizarre character creator, and then travel around a world getting into fights with other fighters born in the character creator. So far the most fun part of the singleplayer is seeing what the character creator is going to generate next. To celebrate, a

  • As it applies to the Core i9-9900K, Der8auer noticed that his sample was running hotter than he expected. Here’s how the Core i9-9900K compares to a Core i7-8700K, according to Der8auer’s measurements:Core i9-9900K PCB: 1.15mmCore i7-8700K PCB: 0.87mmCore i9-9900K die: 0.87mmCore i7-8700K die: 0.42mmThe PCB is closer in size to Haswell, which Der8auer says is a good thing when it comes to supporting bigger and heavier CPU coolers.

  • Skybound Games revealed a couple of weeks ago that it would finish work on The Walking Dead: The Final Season, which had been left in limbo following the collapse of Telltale Games. It also committed to working with members of the Telltale development team on the project, a small bit of good news for at least some of its former employees. In a recent AMA on Reddit, Skybound CEO Ian Howe went even further, saying that the goal is to build the entire TWD development team out of ex-Telltalers. “I c

  • Conflict is the lifeblood of EVE Online, but how players initiate a war is a serious problem. To understand the issue, you have to understand how wars work in EVE Online. When you read about the enormous, server-shattering battles of EVE Online, those are happening between alliances in player-owned territories within Nullsec space where there is no law. During his presentation, Burger revealed that only five corporations in all of EVE Online are responsible for 50 percent of the official declara

  • For a period of time, it seemed like Google would usher in the era of gigabit internet service on a widespread scale in the US. The company’s gigabit internet service is now accessible to nearly all of the 58 million homes and businesses it serves. Comcast offers broadband internet service in 39 states an the District of Columbia. So, there are many places where Comcast’s gigabit service simply doesn’t extend at the moment. Nevertheless, it’s impressive that Comcast has made gigabit speeds avail

  • AMD’s second generation Ryzen processors are selling well below launch prices, and Newegg is sweetening the deal with some combo deals. One that caught our eye is a Ryzen 7 2700 CPU paired with an ASRock Fatali1ty X470 Gaming K4 motherboard for $349.98. Whether purchased alone or part of this combo, Newegg is tossing in a free HP S600 120GB SSD with the mobo.

  • OpTic India’s CS:GO team has been given the boot from the $100,000 eXTREMESLAND Asia finals after player Nikhil ‘forsaken’ Kumawat was caught cheating during a match. A Dexerto report says that spectators realized that something was up when the match between OpTic India and Revolution was paused for no apparent reason. The match was called, and the team was immediately dismissed from the tournament. Nonetheless, OpTic India released a statement earlier today indicating that it has released its e

  • Steven predicted in early September that the big Warframe expansion Fortuna, which developer Digital Extremes had said would be released in “late summer or early fall,” might actually end up coming out in the late fall. The open-world Fortuna will be 4-5 times larger than last year’s Plains of Eidolon update, and will add “a different Orokin-infused look, feel, and experience to Warframe’s growing universe.” Players will take on bounties and missions in the underground internment camp of Fortuna

  • Listen, I know the ‘Souls-like’ label needs to die—but RamenYum’s Hard Mode Stardew Valley mod is so challenging I reckon it merits the comparison. Their Hard Mode mod increases monster damage by 200 percent. “The mod’s objective is to make the game more difficult without losing the general great feeling of Stardew Valley’s gameplay,” explains the project’s creator. “It is designed to make combat more challenging without being annoying, and to make all money-making strategies more difficult with

  • Quiet weekend ahead? Get busy with Fanatical’s Origins Bundle—a collection of 12 indie games for just $4.99. Split into two tiers, paying just $1/$0.89 for tier one nets you Grey Goo Definitive Edition, Rebel Galaxy and Punch Club Deluxe Edition, the latter of which Twitch finished in just two days. My pick of those is Rime, whose story and aesthetic I enjoyed despite some tedious puzzling. With savings of up to $200, Fanatical’s Origins Bundle runs now through November—or until stocks run out.

  • In his review, Andy described Night in the Woods as “a beautiful, heartfelt coming of age story that says something about life, and cracks a few jokes in the process.” I wholeheartedly agree with that, and would add its soundtrack is one of the best I’ve heard in ages. Courtesy of Ghost Ramp, its OST is in-line for a limited-edition vinyl release. Preorders for the Night in the Woods record are live now, with a launch date set for “late Q1 2019”. Here’s Ghost Ramp’s formal description:Ghost Ramp

  • It’s a bit like a real-life TIE Fighter engine, in that the sound is as important to the overall effect as the look, and so it was important that its unique engine noise be properly rendered in Battlefield 5. One goes to Arsunda, Sweden, as it turns out, for “Speed Weekend 2018,” an event that includes runs by a pulsejet-powered snowmobile. Whatever you want to call it, it’s basically a V1 engine rigged with skis, a handle, and someone nuts enough to hold onto it. (Although the Svarthålet team a
