  • It appears that Rockstar Games could be moving in earnest toward the next Grand Theft Auto reveal: Earlier this month, hip hop group City Morgue shared an image on Instagram suggesting that it was involved in a partnership with the studio that would be revealed next summer. That description could be fairly applied to other Rockstar games, though, including Grand Theft Auto 5, which despite being six years old is still tremendously popular, and maintain a solid grip in the top ten most popular ga

  • (Image credit: PUBG Corp)PUBG’s loot box system is getting an overhaul, with locked crates set to be removed altogether. Random crate purchases with BP will no longer have the chance to contain locked crates starting from December 18. Locked crates already owned will still operate in the same way into the future. “However, the value of the locked crates are very low among other PUBG items. This means that paid crates are not an appealing reward to players, making the experience of acquiring a lo

  • In the Valley of Gods, Campo Santo’s follow-up to the excellent Firewatch, was unveiled at The Game Awards in late 2017. The Twitter bios of Ng and Hummel both indicated that they were working on In the Valley of Gods as recently as October 2019, while Rodkin’s bio made the same reference up to September. What is going on with In the Valley of Gods? The website for In the Valley of Gods is still up, and so is the Steam page. Taken altogether, it seems a bit odd at the very least, and not at all

  • The Jedi: Fallen Order Dathomir planet hides a seriously cool secret amid its craggy, Martian-like wastes. There are two ways to get the Jedi: Fallen Order dual-bladed lightsaber and one of them includes a visit to this perilous planet. The slower way is to get Force Push from Zeffo, acquire the Scomp Link, and return to Bogano.

  • My time in Yes, Your Grace is spent in one of two ways: sighing inwardly or secretly wanting to chop off people’s heads. Heavy is the head that wears the crown, and after an hour of play I’ve decided it would lighten my load if I could just execute everyone. I’d like to be more generous but I’m not exactly swimming in riches—despite my expansive castle, I feel like I’m always a week away from financial ruin. That good feeling doesn’t last long, though, as the wedding—as it often does in fantasy

  • Then you need the Stadia app to configure your Stadia account, sync a controller and start playing games. The Stadia controllerThe Stadia controller is solid but not heavy, with weighty-enough buttons and two thumbsticks that move smoothly but feel sturdy. Even stranger is that the Stadia website will recognize a PS4 controller as a Stadia controller, and pressing the PlayStation button has the same function as pressing the Stadia logo button. I also had trouble connecting my Stadia controller t

  • Spintires, the driving sim that reflects man’s primal battle with nature by making you drive through loads of mud, is now going to Chernobyl in a new expansion. It’s like Stalker, but you’re only interested in finding logging sites and keeping your precious truck running. The expansion includes two new vehicles, the B-157 and B-505, which will hopefully be hardy enough for the tough job. The expansion is for Oovee Games’ original Spintires from 2014, rather than Mudrunner (formerly Spintires: Mu

  • Over the weekend, Intel unveiled a new GPU architecture called Ponte Vecchio for high performance computing (HPC) and artificial intelligence (AI) workloads. One is that Ponte Vecchio is being built on a 7-nanometer manufacturing process. “Ponte Vecchio will be manufactured on Intel’s 7nm technology and will be Intel’s first Xe-based GPU optimized for HPC and AI workloads. In that sense, Ponte Vecchio will inevitably share some characteristics with whatever discrete gaming GPU Intel ultimately u

  • Asus has gone and quietly introduced a PCI Express expansion card (PCE-AX3000) that adds Wi-Fi 6 connectivity to your desktop PC. Under the right circumstances, it can boost the wireless speed of your system, though other gear is required. The vast majority of wireless devices have not yet adopted Wi-Fi 6. It’s based on an Intel AX200 M.2 Wi-Fi module that sells for around $20, so you’re basically paying extra for the PCIe card form factor and external antennas. It’s also one of the more expensi

  • It’s only a matter of time before AMD rolls out a GPU architecture with hardware-based real-time ray tracing support (though not in time for any Black Friday deals), to take on Nvidia’s growing army of GeForce RTX graphics cards. Secondly, we know AMD will implement ray tracing support into a future Navi GPU architecture, because both Sony’s PlayStation 5 and Microsoft’s next Xbox (Project Scarlett) will feature one, based on custom silicon.

  • It’s a first and third-person battle royale between 50 angry vikings, each of them hoping to snatch the sword of Odin and stop the apocalypse. The latest glimpse of gameplay gives us a look at Mjolnir, Thor’s fancy flying hammer, which you’ll be able to fight over in the Wield Mjolnir game mode.

  • Techland, creators of the original Dead Island, were planning a sequel when they shifted focus to work on Dying Light instead. Dead Island 2 passed to Yager Developments, and then Sumo Digital, and then Dambuster Studios, and here we are at the end of 2019 with no sign of it. “Look, Dead Island is a very important brand for us and we’ve got to get it right.
