Twitch is showing the Pokemon anime for 67 days straight starting next week – here’s how to get a front-row seat

A Twitch Pokemon marathon is on its way, aiming to showcase dozens and dozens of episodes of everyone’s favourite collectathon-turned-anime. Be warned – there a lot of Pokemon episodes on offer. Twitch Presents has actually started a Pokemon TV show marathon back in 2018, and it’s just picking up from where it left off. This includes all four Diamond and Pearl seasons, each of the four Black and White seasons, and even the trio of XY seasons that make up the show’s generation six run. That’s a w

Anthem’s worst section has already been improved

This first week of Anthem, where only PC players get to access the full game, seems to have acted like an Early Access period in fast forward. That includes adjustments to the game's Challenge of the Legionnaires section, which sets mandatory objectives that players have to tick off in the game's Freeplay mode before the story can progress. Anthem's changes could be communicated a little better, overall. Still, today at 1PM PT, BioWare's Ben Irving will livestream Anthem, addressing changes comi

Apex Legends Leak Reveals When New Character Will Release

Of course, there’s always the chance that the “Octane Preview” isn’t necessarily the formal inclusion of the new character. This find could simply be related to a type of in-game news portion that gets added to Apex Legends‘ announcement page at some point down the line simply to promote Octane’s inclusion. Previous leaks pertaining to Octane suggest that the Apex Legends character will contain a stimpack in their abilities. As for now, Apex Legends still have a solid selection of roster members

What did you play last week?

I had no idea Demon's Tilt was a thing until Wes Fenlon told me he was playing it and now it's on my wishlist. I went through a phase of being obsessed with it back in the day, and thanks to Quakespasm letting me play it with widescreen and modern mouselook I'm enjoying it again. If anyone has any favorite Quake mods, let me know. One of you mentioned getting into Morrowind and Tetris last week, which is a heck of a combo. Or are you trying Apex Legends and being shocked that there's a new battl

This week’s highs and lows in PC gaming

Not only will it be in my nominations for GOTY 2019 on PC Gamer—I'll be pushing for it in the PC Gamer Top 100, as well. Chris Livingston: Pig moodI reviewed Far Cry New Dawn , and it's mostly fun while not being all that much different from Far Cry 5. Far Cry 76. Chris Livingston: Far Cry TooNew Dawn is the first post-apocalyptic Far Cry game, and it's a shame Ubisoft didn't really lean into it. Far Cry 2 had a small, hand-held map you had to inspect in real-time, very few vehicles, and weapons

More than 16,000 Apex Legends cheaters banned in first ten days

Respawn has banned more than 16,000 Apex Legends cheaters since the battle royale game launched on February 5, it said in a Reddit post yesterday. It didn't break that figure down by platform, so we don't know how many of those cheaters are on PC. I haven't run into any obvious cheaters yet, but clearly they exist—and Respawn is encouraging more players to flag up anything suspicious. Clearly it'd be easier if you could report players directly in the game, and it sounds like that feature may be

Anthem’s PC controls will be updated again next week

BioWare made some changes to Anthem's PC controls for today's release, adding a number of new options that enables players to tweak flight and swimming controls in ways that weren't possible in the pre-release demos. It's better but still not perfect, as James explained: Despite the new options, "flight feels either too sensitive to zip around open areas without whipping back and forth wildly or too soft to make quick turns in tight quarters." Fortunately for him and everyone else trying to do t
