• Real-time tactics duo Commandos 2 and Praetorians are both getting remasters, which publisher Kalypso Media has announced are coming in January. They’ll be getting console versions too, but we’re getting them on PC first. The Praetorians beta will also let you play the multiplayer mode. Commandos 2 HD Remastered and Praetorians HD Remastered are due out on January 24, 2020. They’re available separately, but there’s a discount if you get them together in the Double Pack.

  • A new content update set to release later this month is designed to address some of these points, in the process adding a bunch of new features. In his update post, Barone writes that he doesn’t want to spoil all of the new additions, but provided some examples. For instance, Wild Bait is no longer “essentially worthwhile”: it will now have the chance of attracting double the amount of fish. We already know a few things about the 1.4 update: there will be a new map called Four Corners, and there

  • The deals on gaming PCs appear to be ramping up as Black Friday approaches. If you have the budget, one model from SkyTech with an RTX 2070 graphics card is on sale for $1,000, a drop of $280 from the original price. That’s significantly cheaper than every other gaming PC with the same graphics card (at least on Newegg), and the rest of the specs aren’t bad either. Most PCs around this price use a GTX 1660 graphics card, making this desktop with a significantly more-powerful RTX 2070 Super an ex

  • I’m a couple hours into Bee Simulator and so far it’s more arcade game than simulation. Plus, the bee I’m chasing cheats by not flying through all the rings. Bee Simulator also has local co-op so you can play with up to four bee pals, though I haven’t tried that yet. Crank up the buzzing sounds in Bee Simulator, I say. Bee Simulator launches on November 14 on the Epic Store, and sometime next year on Steam.

  • But I’d never been anywhere from a videogame before, which inspired me to take some time out of a recent holiday to Japan to visit locations from two of my favourite series, Yakuza and Shenmue. So far so good, but the real reason I was there was Dobuita Street: a little shopping district and a major location in Shenmue. You can tell it’s the same place, but it felt more bustling and city-like than the quiet, parochial little streets in Shenmue. But of the two videogame locations I visited, Kabuk

  • We’re over halfway through that coveted licensing deal, though, and EA has only released two Star Wars games: Battlefront and Battlefront 2. The third, Jedi: Fallen Order, will be out on Friday. Excluding the Disney-published mobile games and the Warner Bros LEGO games, that’s just three new Star Wars games in six years at a time when Star Wars is at the peak of its popularity and saturation. Adding to the pressure on Fallen Order is that it’s the only game for Star Wars fans to look forward to

  • Nvidia has begun pushing out a new GPU driver update (441.20 WHQL) for GeForce graphics cards, and if you plan on playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order when it releases on Friday, this is the one you want. That’s because it’s considered a “Game Ready” driver release for Fallen Order, which basically means Nvidia’s coders baked in performance and stability optimizations specific to that game. The double-edged lightsaber, of course, is the risk that comes with installing new drivers right out of th

There are three free packs up for grabs in the form of a legendary quest which requires you to complete two full games of Battlegrounds, but given the interest in Hearthstone’s first new mode in forever, I doubt that will feel too onerous.

  • When your online handle is “winedave,” you’re perhaps setting yourself up for certain expectations. I’m surprised from looking at winedave’s profile on Nexusmods that he hasn’t made any wine-related mods, but that’s forgivable considering the quality and utterly perfect name of this mod, Rum Induced Mountains. They’re so detailed, you’re definitely going to need a Skyrim install modified with some other realism mods to make sure they fit in. So far this is the only winedave mod explicitly motiva

  • (Image credit: Edmund McMillen)Edmund McMillen, he of The Binding of Isaac, Super Meat Boy and The End is Nigh fame, has just released a new game. The Legend of Bum-Bo is a “puzzle based deckbuilding roguelike” which undoubtedly looks like a McMillen game, except it has a gloriously unusual cardboard cut-out aesthetic. Co-developed with James Interactive, it’s described as a prequel to The Binding of Isaac, and one of its features is “poop”. “…Players collect hordes of items that can be modifi
