There’s an Unreal Tournament demake for Atari 2600 you can play in your browser

Unreal Tournament, as in the 1995 multiplayer first-person-shooter, has been demade for a new platform—the Atari VCS, aka the Atari 2600, a 41-year-old console. Fortunately you don't need to have kept your Atari since 1977 to play it, as UT 2600 runs in an emulator or can be enjoyed right in your browser. This bleepy, chunky, 2D version of Unreal Tournament features capture-the-flag and deathmatch modes, can be played with a friend locally or online, and includes various classic pickups and weap

E3 2018: The Last of Us Part II gets brutal gameplay demo

After being revealed at the end of 2016, Naughty Dog has been tight-lipped on what The Last of Us Part II is all about. Tonight at Sony’s E3 briefing, they blew the lid off of what The Last of Us Part II is all about and showed us a pretty meaty gameplay demo. Gameplay appears to keep that scrappy, brutal nature of the first game as we see Ellie get up close and personal with several enemies. She’s clearly outnumbered so she runs away and crawls under a truck to escape from her pursuers. She man

This PC is the size of a damn credit card

I'm still impressed by the power in the diminutive Raspberry Pi , a flexible hobbyist PC that can be used to run emulators or a home server or other creative projects. But the Raspberry Pi looks practically gargantuan next to the Pico PI225-GK, which I checked out at Zotac's booth at Computex 2018. This is actually the second generation of the mini PC, which is about the dimensions of a half dozen credit cards stacked together. But I was impressed by how much of a genuine PC the Pico is. Wi-Fi,

Dark Souls Remastered runs at 4K 60 fps even on modest PC hardware

Dark Souls has a well-deserved reputation for being punishingly difficult, but also for rewarding you with a sense of accomplishment. Dark Souls Remastered fixes the resolution support and keyboard/mouse input, and kicks the frame rate to 60fps—still locked, but at least it's not 30fps by default. Overview of settingsThere are four, count them four, settings you can adjust in Dark Souls Remastered. Basically, Dark Souls Remastered removes the final hurdles to a steady 60fps for the vast majority

Dragon Ball FighterZ’s first co-op Party Battle now live, runs until early next week

The latest update to Dragon Ball FighterZ added two new game modes: a co-op Party Battle and FighterZ Cup, a monthly contest in which players fight to earn points for their Z-Union.

Windows 10 April 2018 Update runs into more SSD woes, this time with Toshiba models

The affected drives are the Toshiba XG4 Series, Toshiba XG5 Series and Toshiba BG3 Series, according to a post by a moderator on Microsoft’s official ‘Answers’ support and troubleshooting forum (spotted by Computerworld). Those who upgrade to the Windows 10 April 2018 Update on a machine running one of these SSDs may find they “experience degraded battery life” after applying the update. As a result, Microsoft says it’s working with Toshiba and hardware manufacturers to block devices running the

There’s a battle royale-themed board game on Kickstarter right now

There’s a battle royale-themed board game on Kickstarter right now, and it just so happens to look a lot like Fortnite. The game is called Last One Standing: The Battle Royale Board Game, and with a modest ask of just over $18,700, it has a good chance of being funded before the all-or-nothing deadline hits. Two to eight players drop onto the modular game board, gather loot and gun each other down. While it’s technically being self-published, manufacturing and fulfillment are being handled by re

Deck-building dungeon-crawler Hand of Fate 2 gets Endless Mode and new challenges

Today, the studio released a batch of "infinitely replayable" quests bundled together in a new Endless Mode. Each time you clear a quest in Endless Mode, the enemies in the Dealer's deck get more difficult. Endless Mode was teased back in December as the first of many 2018 updates, the big new entree ahead of multiple side dishes. Our own Eric Watson rather enjoyed Hand of Fate 2 despite its lackluster combat. "Hand of Fate 2 more than makes up for it in the vastly improved strategic layer, and
