Numerous Rockstar employees break silence over working conditions

Earlier this week, a rare interview with Rockstar Games co-founder came out and talked about the development process for Red Dead Redemption 2. This was not something forced on other Rockstar employees and was merely an isolated case. Still, some people were weary as former Rockstar employees like Job Stauffer discussed their time at the company during development for games like Grand Theft Auto IV which took a massive toll on them. Today, a number of Rockstar employees took the chance to talk a

HDR on a smartphone: is it really worth having?

For the best results, HDR content requires a display with a high contrast ratio and a high peak brightness. The HDR standard seen most often in mobiles today is HDR10. The Nokia 7.1 is one of the first phones to support HDR 10. Lots of your streaming apps already support HDR. This is currently being rolled out to PC monitors, indicating how adept they are at displaying HDR content (the higher the number the better the performance).

Worlds 2018: A Lightning Round interview with Fnatic’s Bwipo

While this is our last Lightning Round for Worlds and you’re probably already hip to how this works, here’s our final explainer. The Rift Herald: Have you been challenged with that since you came to Korea? Bwipo: Either Hylissang cause he’s really funny or Caps cause he’s really funny or Broxah cause that guy’s awesome. Rekkles would be cool cause I’d get to know him better and Soaz would be cool cause we could talk top lane. If you could be Aatrox and go around ending worlds that’s pretty cool.

Battlefield 5 gets War Stories Single Player Trailer

Dice has released a brand-new story trailer for the upcoming Battlefield 5. It’s a great teaser for the War Stories-style of telling multiple stories in one campaign. Battlefield 5 really had a bad start ever since its reveal earlier this year in May. All sad things which take focus off the actual good things Battlefield 5 is sporting. One big advantage Battlefield 5 has over its most direct competitor Black Ops 4, is the inclusion of a traditional single-player campaign.

The secret of Sniper Elite and Rebellion’s growing success

"There aren't any assists there," says Rebellion's head of creative Tim Jones when I ask about why the Sniper Elite series has been so successful over the last 13 years. Sniper Elite 4 was well over twice as successful as Sniper Elite 3," co-founder and CEO Jason Kingsley says. Over the years, each entry has earned more than the last from our reviewers: 65% for Sniper Elite V2, 70% for Sniper Elite 3, and 84% for last year's Sniper Elite 4 . Each Sniper Elite game is more successful than the las

Doctor Who? Jodie Whittaker on the movies, people, and places that define her

I went as the Thirteenth Doctor instead...”As the latest incarnation of the Gallifreyan icon, Whittaker is on the brink of becoming a hero and an inspiration herself. You don’t have hope if you don’t have a heart.”Let the Right One in“The original film is in my top five. If someone was to say, 'I don’t know anything about the world of Doctor Who...' Well, I didn’t! It has loud noise and then beautiful hills that you can sit on and look out over the whole place. “I really love being in town.

“There’s a part of Albus that sees himself as a monster” – Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald star Jude Law on Dumbledore

In the latest issue of our sister publication Total Film magazine, Jude Law gave us all an insight into taking on such an intimidating role. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald sees dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald escape from the Magical Congress of the United States of America, and enacts his plan to see witches and wizards dominate the muggle world. "He sees Grindelwald, his young lover who’s the love of his life; he sees him in the Mirror of Erised. Follow your heart, and really, real

Inside the bizarre, passionate world of League of Legends roleplay

I met Joshua on one of the scattered League of Legends roleplay Discord channels, where he and a few friends dream up their own Runeterra war stories. League of Legend's forum-based roleplay community is relatively tiny. And so, League of Legends roleplayers tend to use their own means and their own rulesets. Frankly, it also makes a good amount of sense when you consider the turbulent history of League lore. I hope that the few, proud League roleplayers continue to chart their own path.

Winamp is coming back in 2019

Nothing actually happened after that, though, and the dream seemed dead—until last month, when a Winamp 5.8 beta leaked online. More recently—as in yesterday—Radionomy CEO Alexandre Saboundjian told TechCrunch that the Winamp remake is still in the works, and will finally be unveiled to the world in 2019. "There will be a completely new version next year, with the legacy of Winamp but a more complete listening experience," he said. It's not clear whether Winamp 6 will be released for PC or just
