Yooka-Laylee was fun, but it didn't recapture the magic that Banjo Kazooie created all those years. In an interview with MCV , the team at Playtonic discussed the issues they ran into while developing Yooka-Laylee. The cameras tended to take the approach of trying to sort things out for you and trying to position themselves in intelligent places," Sutherland said. “So we went along that route because the way the camera frames the player [is part of the] feel of these games. “I guess things have

Apex Legends is getting a new gun tomorrow

Get ready to cry havoc—a new gun is coming to King's Canyon 19, 2019Just a quick note: Respawn announced that it'll be announcing a new gun for Apex Legends tomorrow, an unnamed rifle shown in the pixelated clip on Twitter above. My guess is that the gun will use energy ammo, given the electric blue particles shown in the tease, and the fact that only two of the 19 Apex Legends guns use this ammo type. The gun appears to fire rapidly, but I can't tell if what I

Microsoft Solitaire Collection adds a feature everyone has been waiting for: Leveling up

Microsoft Solitaire Collection, the version of Solitaire that comes free with Windows 10, is adding a leveling system. This news has been brought to us via the weirdly good video you can see above, which riffs off the famous "in a world" trailer for Comedian.

Anyway, here's the trailer for Comedian featuring the legendary voice actor Hal Douglas, RIP.

Guess the prices of website names in this hilarious browser game

Anyways, Domain Names are worth a lot now, and guessing how much they’re worth based on name alone is a fine art. Thus, from designer Martin O’Leary based on a tweet by designer Holly Gramazio, we have the game domain-pricing . It’s a shockingly compelling experience trying to guess which of two domain names costs more to buy. It’s an even more shocking experience seeing which domain names someone wants you to pay thousands of dollars for. My record is 10, but I have to stop now or they won't le

Watch these guys try to guess if ray tracing is turned on or off in Battlefield 5

One of the main selling points of Nvidia's GeForce RTX series graphics cards is the prospect of real-time ray tracing. That's what UFD Tech aimed to find out in a blind test.

Secondly, real-time ray tracing in games is in its infancy. They could only test this with actual gameplay in Battlefield 5 because that's the only game that supports ray tracing at th

Infinity War? Black Panther? A Quiet Place? Anyone want to guess 2018’s most Googled movie?

With a few surprises thrown in, as well as a big superhero movie standing proudly at the top, this is one list you (probably) won’t be able to auto-complete. As revealed by Entertainment Weekly, a certain Black Panther leads the way for not only all superhero movies but also at the very top of 2018’s most Googled movies. I wouldn’t put it past Ryan Reynolds to mention that his movie was Googled more times than Avengers: Infinity War in Deadpool 3. Infinity War, the MCU’s biggest movie to date, o

The voices of Liquid and Solid Snake reunite to perform The Night Before Metal Gear

Hideo Kojima may have replaced David Hayter in Metal Gear Solid 5, but he'll never replace him in our hearts. Liquid Snake actor Cam Clarke brought Hayter along to perform "The Night Before Metal Gear" in his signature gravelly voice, and they both ham it up appropriately. When what do my wondering eyes did appear, but a great big Hind D. What's a gunship doing here!? According to Clarke's Facebook post, Hayter wrote the whole parody in about 20 minutes.
