Loupedeck+ promises to speed up your image-editing workflow

The original Loupedeck custom photo-editing console was solely engineered to work with Lightroom (Classic CC only), but the next-generation console, known as Loupedeck+, builds on this with support for Skylum Aurora HDR as well.

Frostpunk’s new ‘Survivor Mode’ makes it likely that you won’t

For the iron-willed survivalists among you who think that Frostpunk's "hard" mode is too damn easy, today's 1.10 update introduces the new Survivor Mode promised last month. The mode, which I assume is named ironically, ratchets up the challenge by eliminating the ability to pause the game unless you open a menu, and only saving progress when you exit. The core difficulty is also cranked up in Survivor Mode: Developer 11 Bit Studios didn't get into the details but said that "meeting the people's

Trying to save lives in Flashing Lights, the wonky emergency services sim

It’s my first day as a police officer in Flashing Lights, and I’ve just received my first call. “Aggressive driver in red vehicle seen in area, locate and stop,” the dispatcher says. My second call tasks me with catching another red car, which I do, but with less enthusiasm. “Aggressive driver in red vehicle…” I don’t read the rest. The red cars have won.

Fix the lack of Outrun in your life with Slipstream

But while we're severely lacking in Outrun, we do now have Slipstream, and it's almost as good. The trick to being good at Slipstream is smoothly controlling the drift, and navigating around traffic as you skid. It's tricky to master, but feels good regardless. In those situations it's handy, but not so revelatory that it feels worth naming the entire game after. After all, it's basically Outrun, and Outrun is great.
