  • Jonathan-Jacques Belletête brought a very distinct visual style to Deus Ex: Human Revolution and Mankind Divided as the art director at developer Eidos Montreal. He won’t be around for the final game in the trilogy (which I continue to resolutely believe it will be) however, because he is now working as creative director on a brand new project at Mordheim: City of the Damned studio Rogue Factor. “The new position at Rogue Factor is one that I am thrilled to take on, and the wealth of talent that

  • Next month’s Rise of Shadow’s expansion will see former Hearthstone villains teaming up to create the League of E.V.I.L., and Hagatha the Witch is among the founding members. The character, who was first introduced as the only Hero card in The Witchwood set, is returning in Rise of Shadows as a Legendary minion with a particularly spicy Battlecry effect. Additionally, Hagatha can teach the Horror to cast Shaman spells. However, the second choice won’t have targeted spells if your first choice wa

  • Less than a month after the last Rakuten sale, Rakuten is back at it again. You can once again get 15 percent off anything from rakuten.com/shop, up to a savings of $60 off. Ebay hasn’t even had a site-wide sale in a while, so Rakuten is the place to be right now.

  • Bethesda will be hosting its fifth E3 conference this year. EA isn’t doing a press conference this year, for instance, and Sony won’t be on the floor at all. Bethesda’s conference will kick off at 5:30 pm PT on June 9, though it’s still keeping the contents of the show a mystery, aside from the promise of an in-depth look at Doom Eternal. That’s still expected to be a long way off, however, and Bethesda’s got plenty of other games cooking away, including Starfield, Rage 2 and Wolfenstein: Youngb

  • (Image: © YouTube via Major Hardware)You never know what you might stumble upon on the web, and today I came across something I’ve never seen before—a video of a guy submerging his CPU air cooler into a tank of icy cold water. It’s never been done (to my knowledge) because there really isn’t much utility in it—you might as well go whole hog on a liquid cooling setup if you want to lower temps below what you’re getting with an air cooler. I wanted to be able to design something that was able to c

  • Fortnite’s latest injection of whimsy, a giant hamster ball with a grappling gun, has been temporarily removed from the game. The Baller was disabled earlier today, with Epic saying that it was investigating a stability issue via Twitter. It takes them around 30 seconds to get all the way to the other side of the map. Reddit user bbjared7 posted a video of the bug killing them. There’s no reason to believe Epic won’t just put the Baller back in the main game when it’s fixed, however.

  • Battlefield 5’s Firestorm battle royale mode, which was announced last week, takes place on the largest map in the series. Halvøy isn’t just massive; it’s a whopping ten times larger than Hamada, previously the largest map in Battlefield 5. This is Hamada, currently the most immense map in #Battlefield V. Halvøy is 10 times its size. pic.twitter.com/KVdPvzqlQaMarch 18, 2019Battle royale maps are typically large, of course, but the immense size is even more necessary given that Firestorm features

  • To help deal with that, Microsoft is porting its Defender Application Guard extension for Edge over to Chrome and Firefox. It’s also tied to its Edge browser, so those secure browsing sessions initiated by the extension don’t actually take place in Chrome or Firefox.

    Update: Capcom producer Matt Walker has claimed Hideaki Itsuno’s desire to leave the studio after DmC: Devil May Cry had “nothing to do” with the game itself. Original story:Hideaki Itsuno, director of the Devil May Cry series, wanted to resign from Capcom after DmC: Devil May Cry, according to the voice and motion capture actor for Dante. DmC: Devil May Cry released in 2013, five years after Devil May Cry 4. ‘”Itsuno’s “wishlist” included getting control of the Devil May Cry series for a new ga

  • The release of a free-to-play Final Fantasy fighting game on PC should be cause for celebration—but it appears 3v3 brawler Dissidia Final Fantasy NT Free Edition is being plagued by online lag, which is ruining it for most players. Free players play on the same servers as those who have bought the game. “The lag makes this unplayable,” reads one user review, while another says that “making this game rely on a random host for the networking is ridiculous”. Nearly all of the reviews—including the

  • People still have fond memories of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? today because it was a rare thing: An educational game that didn’t suck. I played it on a Commodore 64 about one million years ago and was excited to see the familiar red hat pop up again today. You can play a full game of it on Google Earth right now, chasing the international thief from London to locations around the world by interviewing witnesses and showing off your knowledge of geographical trivia and the colors of f

    One of the cool things about Gwent is how great its art is, especially on the premium animated cards, constantly in motion and writhing around. It’s nice to see the latest trailer for its Crimson Curse expansion show off so much of this animated art, all gothic and blood-drenched. Knights charge, monsters roar, vampires wipe blood from their mouths. The Crimson Curse will add a bunch of new keywords to the collectible card game, like Bleeding, Assimilate, Berserk, and Deathblow, as well as new c

  • According to a recent leak the next legend coming to Apex Legends will be able to deploy launch pads players can jump off as an ultimate ability. These pads have begun appearing around the market area so you can test them out yourself. YouTuber Mokeysniper has gone all out with those tests, making a video that demonstrates every legend in the game launching off the pads and also shows off the other possible interactions. While Lifeline’s ultimate can’t be summoned on top of a launch pad, they ca

    Far Cry New Dawn, to pick a recent example, contains nods to Splinter Cell, Assassin’s Creed, and the rabbids who have gone from enemies in Rayman to somehow become Ubisoft’s weird mascots. And now, players have found a reference to them in the new Rainbow Six Siege map as well. They’re painted on the inside of a log in the Outback map. I do have fond memories of that Wii minigame where zombie rabbids in scuba gear come out of the ocean and you have to fill their masks with carrot juice to drown

    The latest is Pyre, Supergiant Games’ 2017 RPG-come-sports game, which is still worth playing today. The other new additions to Origin Access this month are Star Wars Jedi Knight: Dark Forces 2, Star Wars Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast and adventure game Chaos on Deponia. Last month, EA added five Star Wars games. The basic Origin Access subscription also gets you a 10-hour trial of seven newer games, including Anthem and They Are Billions.

    Every action-RPG has low-level greeblies for you to demolish by the dozen, and in Warhammer: Chaosbane they’re Nurglings. These lesser servants of the god of pestilence are sacks of pus and vinegar with spindly arms and pointy teeth. I hit them with a shield charge, flying forward like a bowling ball and sending the wobblebelly brats flying apart. There’s a bit of Warhammer’s “grubby fantasy” vibe in the grotesque monster designs and architecture, but it’s also very classic action-RPG. Warhammer
