Burden of Command is a tactical RPG that aims to capture the personal experiences of war

Burden of Command looks like a strategy wargame: Maybe Panzer General, maybe Hearts of Iron 3, or maybe something in between. They describe it as "Band of Brothers meets XCOM," a blend of RPG and tactics that's "infused with battlefield psychology, where every decision counts." "Tactics really come alive when you factor in personal stories, skills and mindsets of your officers and soldiers." "We aim to recreate the personal struggles of officers—their 'burden of command'," Pessache said. "So per

This Avengers: Infinity War 16-bit Thanos battle is pure retro joy

For now, though, the next best thing is this simply incredible 16-bit recreation of one of the best fight scenes from Avengers: Infinity War. It’s pixel-perfect, right down to the awkward screen-scrolling and minimalist text boxes – and deserves to be watched in all of its glory. Not only does he give us a full retro re-telling of Thanos’ near-defeat on Titan (thanks, Star Lord), but there’s also a small peek behind the curtain on just how the 16-bit fight scene compares to its live-action/CGI o

Revisiting The Order: 1886 with developer Ready At Dawn

It was a game, Ready At Dawn said, that set the foundation for sequels and deeper lore. Polygon: The Order: 1886 came out over three years ago and you all have released two or three games since. It did a lot of things with world building and storytelling that hadn’t been explored much at that point. Do you kind of feel The Order is similar, in that it’s a game that really appeals to other game developers? I think that’s one of the things that we did find out.

Moto G7 Plus: what we want to see

There’s no word on what it will cost, but the Moto G6 Plus launched for £269 / AU$499 (about $380), so the Moto G7 Plus will probably cost a similar amount, if not slightly more. There’s also basic facial recognition on the G6 Plus, but we’d like to see a more advanced option from the Moto G7 Plus, something more like Apple’s Face ID or Samsung’s Intelligent Scan. Adding such an chipset would also serve to future-proof the Moto G7 Plus against new updates and more, especially if tuned properly.

Intel teases its first dedicated consumer graphics cards that are coming in 2020

Back in June, news emerged that Intel is planning to release its own discrete graphics cards in 2020, and the chip giant has now posted a teaser for these incoming GPUs. Released to coincide with SIGGRAPH 2018, Intel published the short video clip on Twitter, although it’s really a marketing pitch, and sadly doesn’t reveal any further details about exactly what form these graphics cards will take. As you can see for yourself below, the video confirms that Intel’s discrete GPUs are still planned

The No Man’s Sky player using 3 billion units to become the galaxy’s Santa Claus

No Man's Sky player Long_Nose_Jim is making a list, checking it twice, and gifting really shiny doodads to players low on cash. Stasis devices are valued at over 15 million units and require considerable resources to craft, but they're only used as fodder for vendors. Some players were worried that Long_Nose_Jim's generosity might rob some new players of the No Man's Sky experience by obviating their early-game efforts. He says he'll keep giving out stasis devices every evening until he's out of

Dishonored series is “resting” as Arkane moves on to new games

Arkane Studios has been one of the most acclaimed AAA studios since truly rising to prominence with first-person stealth game Dishonored in 2012. Since then, they’ve released a sequel, a standalone spin-off, and a revival of a sci-fi game from 2006, Prey. With that said, fans would really like to revisit that series after the successful sequel in 2016 but… that’s not in the plans for Arkane. “I can’t say definitively what might happen down the road, anything could happen, but [Dishonored] is res

How to start with board games, tabletop, and card games (and what games are best)

What are modern board games and tabletop games like? Unlike digital games, board games normally require you to play around a table with your friends (although there are some single-player and two-player board games out there). There’s an increasing cross-over between video games and board games, and so you may well find that a few friend-of-friends are already having regular sessions. If you are looking for smaller tabletop games, you can pick up a variety of lightweight card games for less. Per

What game did you finish despite hating every minute of it?

If you love them, maybe that's after New Game + or a replay with every character option. If you hate them, maybe that's after half an hour of frustration and a checkpoint that's on the wrong side of an unskippable cutscene. This week's PCG Q&A asks the question: What game did you finish despite hating every minute of it? In fact, I enjoyed IO's second Kane & Lynch for its first half an hour, thanks almost entirely to its distinct presentation. There remains a dedicated cadre of game critics—Andy
