  • (Image credit: Dell)While not every game supports ultrawide resolutions as well as they should (looking at you, Overwatch), ultrawide monitors can be fantastic for both gaming and productivity. If you have a big budget, Alienware’s tricked-out 1900R display is just $719.99 on Amazon right now—$380 below the original MSRP, and ~$128 off the usual price. This display has a curved 34-inch AH-IPS panel, with an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a resolution of 3440×1400 pixels. As a bonus feature, there are

  • If you’ve played both Dota 2 and Dota Underlords, you’ve probably noticed that most of Dota 2’s heroes haven’t made their way into the autobattler yet. Tyler McVicker, who runs the unofficial Valve News Network YouTube channel, went through the changes introduced in the latest patch. Perhaps the biggest news gameplay-wise for Underlords is the inclusion of references, skins, and models for 16 Dota 2 heroes. These include, alphabetically: Chen, Clinkz, Dark Seer, Dazzle, Earthshaker, Pangolier, R

  • (Image credit: LG)Monitors with IPS panels are generally the best ones to get, especially when they are paired with a high refresh rate. Right now you can get one of LG’s IPS 144Hz monitors for just $249.00 on Amazon, a $101 reduction from the usual price. The LG 27GL650F-B (great name, I know) is a 27-inch 1080p monitor, with FreeSync support up to 144Hz. You can grab the monitor from the link below. Some online stores give us a small cut if you buy something through one of our links.

  • There was plenty of capital-D discourse about the fixed difficulty level in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice when the game came out. This one, called Sekiro the Easy, makes some key changes to the game’s mechanics so “you can play the Sekiro happily,” according to modder Tender Box. It’s not the first Sekiro mod that changes up the difficulty. An early mod let you adjust enemy speeds, for instance. Sekiro the Easy is available over at Nexus Mods.

  • (Image credit: Logitech)The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum is getting a bit old at this point, as it was originally released in early 2016, but it’s still a favorite among many. For Prime Day, Logitech has dropped the price to $34.99, a savings of $50 from the original MSRP, and about $10 less than what it usually goes for. This mouse has an PMW3366 optical sensor (which supports 200-12,000DPI), 11 programmable buttons, a braided USB cable, optional weights, and of course, RGB lighting. The sale

  • The Shanghai Dragons, formerly the worst team in the Overwatch League with a Season 1 record of 0-40, won the Stage 3 playoffs on Sunday night. The Dragons triumphed over the best three teams in the league—the New York Excelsior, the Vancouver Titans, and the San Francisco Shock. After a poor Season 1 performance, Shanghai has been on the rebound after bringing on several members of the 2018 Kongdoo Panthera roster. In the post-match interview, DPS player Diem said, “I think my [Widowmaker] did

  • An upcoming update to the Sims 4 introduces a new way to simply create a sim with well-rounded traits called Create-a-Sim Stories. Instead of hand-picking a sim’s traits, you can choose to take a 10-question personality quiz instead. If you’re trying to make yourself in The Sims or have a specific personality in mind, it’s as easy as answering questions based on that person. The quiz doesn’t have an effect on the sim’s appearance, so you can change that as you would normally. If you’re new to Th

Each person gets two burgers (one double chicken, one vegan mushroom), and four drinks (two large Pepsis, two large peach oolong teas), as well as the chicken pieces, duck roll, and nugs.

  • Remember Realm of the Mad God, the browser MMO that was all the rage back in 2012 or so? The latest is a doozy, promising a weeks-long alien invasion event. Commander Calibrik and his alien army will be roaming around in the mountains, and if players team up to take them on Calibrik will arrive in a UFO for a boss fight.

  • Ubisoft is teaming up again with HitRecord, the collaborative project facilitator founded by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, to commission 10 new songs to be used in Watch Dogs Legion. Possibly in response to that backlash, the new Watch Dogs Legion campaign is very upfront about how the process works, with a dedicated video explaining how payments will be handled in the campaign. Ubisoft has essentially posted bounties for different types of songs (like “Aggressive Grim Punk Song” or “Teasing Funk Pop So

  • The Division 2 creative director Julian Gerighty is curious how fans feel about one player’s idea for a single-player spin-off in the Division universe. Tim Spencer, level director at TT Games (the Lego games folk) tweeted on Saturday about his ideal theoretical single-player Division that would focus on narrative and characters. Spencer’s ideal spin-off would explore a Division agent trying to find their family amid the events of the games’ stories. At the very least, Gerighty is interested and

  • Open source software developer Libretro is bringing its popular emulator platform RetroArch to Steam on July 30. It’s not every day that emulating software appears Valve’s platform, and RetroArch is easily the most prominent to make the leap. The gray legality of emulating suggests that Libretro would have trouble getting RetroArch on a closed platform like Steam, but as ArsTechnica points out, Valve doesn’t appear to have any rules against emulators. In its announcement post on RetroArch’s stor

  • Thankfully, Nexus Mods user TheJanitor has spent the last year creating simple and convenient mods that disable and enable all HUD with a hotkey in dozens of screenshot-worthy games. Toggle HUD mods are nothing new, but there’s a purity to TheJanitor’s work that I adore. The HUD mods are no-nonsense and the installation processes are as simple as possible. The seamless toggle would definitely have an impact for me in something like Mad Max, where I’d prefer to keep the HUD off while driving but

  • The Messenger is Sabotage Studio’s 2D platformer in the vein of classics like Shinobi and Ninja Gaiden 2. And, if you’ve finished it already, it now has some free DLC accessible to anyone who has made it to the credits. Picnic Panic is a vacation-themed collection of three new levels with new boss fights as well, set on on Voodkin Island. If you’re on New Game +, you’ll need to have unlocked the map. Either way, head over to the shop and find the pink neon palm tree sign to set off for Voodkin I

  • Earlier this week, AMD launched its new Radeon RX 5700 XT and Radeon RX 5700. The RX 5700 cards—both models—performed about as expected in most cases, but minimum framerates in several games were quite poor. On the RX 5700 XT, the public 19.7.1 drivers perform basically the same as the pre-launch (also numbered 19.7.1, but an earlier version) drivers we used. Of the tested games, only Shadow of the Tomb Raider shows incrementally better performance (2 percent faster) with the newer 19.7.1 driver
    AMD's latest drivers drop performance by 10% or more in some games

  • Key resale marketplace G2A has come under fire due to the number of Steam keys sold there that are obtained with stolen credit cards. This is a particular problem for indie developers like Wube, creators of Factorio, who have to pay an average chargeback fee of $20 for every cancelled transaction. They also have to go through and manually revoke all those Steam keys, but having to pay for the privilege of being stolen from must sting. I have a list of all the Steam keys I had to revoke because t

  • There are a lot of pirate rules that I didn’t know when I first started playing Sea of Thieves. The rules of pirating, as written by captains Tyler Wilde and Christopher Livingston, are not always practical, but they are almost always funny. And you know, I’m starting to think the pirate rules have a few blind spots. That’s my excuse for accidentally sinking my galleon, killing my entire crew, and losing about 30,000 gold in treasure this week—inadequate pirating bureaucracy. While on a quest fo
