AOC’s AGON AG322QC4 FreeSync 2 monitor looks to court both AMD and Nvidia HDR camps
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2018, 7:11 am
The vast majority of PC gamers may own Nvidia graphics cards, but when it comes to the world of gaming monitors and adaptive frame rate technologies, AMD rule the roost. The reasons for this are unknown. Perhaps it’s because AMD’s FreeSync tech (see our best monitor buying guide for more info on the Free vs G […]

Fortnite Battle Royale v3.6 slaps on sticky grenades
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2018, 7:21 am
Sticky grenades have arrived in Fortnite Battle Royale with today’s update, latching onto people and giving them 2.5 seconds to panic before exploding. The ‘Clinger’, as the weapon’s officially named, is an interesting contrast to Fortnite’s guided missiles, which removed last week because they felt irritating and unfair to fight against. But if someone is […]

'Starcraft II' finally gets a store for player-made maps
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2018, 6:58 am

Newer Blizzard titles like Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm are free to play, but they do offer as many paid extras as you can shake a stick at. That's normal these days, of course, but StarCraft II was first released in 2010 -- a simpler time when you tended to just buy a video game and play it. There have been many paid expansions and cosmetics added over the years, but Blizzard originally promised a marketplace through which the community could sell custom-made maps and take a cut of the revenue. This feature was first mentioned way back in 2009, before StarCraft II even launched, and nine years later it's finally debuting in the impending 4.3.0 update.

Hackers find an 'unpatchable' way to breach the Nintendo Switch
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2018, 8:02 am

Security researchers from ReSwitched have discovered a Nintendo Switch vulnerability that could let hackers run arbitrary code on all current consoles. Dubbed "Fusée Gelée" ("Frozen Rocket") it exploits buggy code in the NVIDIA Tegra X1's USB recovery mode, bypassing software that would normally protect the critical bootROM. Most worrisome for Nintendo is that the bug appears to be unpatchable and could allow users to eventually run pirated games.

Wot I Think: BattleTech
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 24 April 2018, 6:00 am
I was perplexed to discover that my partner, also a home-worker, was wearing earplugs as she sat at her computer. There was, for once, none of the thunderous din of new kitchens or loft extensions being built in one of the adjacent terraced houses, and nor was my own PC’s volume set high as I […]

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

Plunkbat (Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds for short) may have taken over the world already, but it’s not quite made the inroads into esports that you’d expect, leaving the likes of Overwatch and Counter-Strike to fill the vacuum. Well, as we all know, there’s only one solution to a lack of esports representation: Fat sacks of cash-money, and […]

Kickstarter to Play the Top Secret Game from the CIA
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 6:30 pm
Another Kickstarter I think is worth noting.  Two in one month, what is happening? Anyway, this Kickstarter campaign is from Mike Masnick of TechDirt, a site I should probably have on my side bar somewhere, and features a recently declassified card

'Fortnite' is coming to China
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 6:24 pm

The popular battle royale game Fortnite is coming to China, thanks to a partnership between its creator Epic Games and Tencent. The Chinese tech giant, which owns over 40 percent of Epic, will handle distribution and publishing. Tencent will reportedly spend $15 million on Fortnite in China on marketing to its domestic playerbase and clamping down on piracy and illegal clones, the latter of which is a problem in the country.

GOG gets social by adding user profiles
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 7:28 pm

GOG is introducing user profiles, which will bring a touch of social interaction to the DRM-free games marketplace. The platform has hesitantly modernized over the years to compete with Steam, adding films and in-development titles, and the new profiles bring more awareness of what friends and community are doing.

Earth Defense Force’s weirdo shmup spinoff is PC-bound
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 5:11 pm
The very fact that the Earth Defense Force games exist is weird enough to begin with (they started life as part of a Japanese super-budget range, and grew into a cult hit phenomenon), but the fact that it has a multitude of spinoffs now (including a PS2-era strategy game) is just baffling. The latest of […]

Twitch's custom extensions can now ask for Bits
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 5:00 pm

You didn't think Twitch would offer streamer extensions without finding a way to generate money from them, did you? Sure enough, the customization feature now accepts Bits (the microtransactions you normally use to tip streamers) for on-page games and other features. Chip in a few cents and you can participate in games with broadcasters (such as arcade or trivia titles), predict who's likely to win and mess with the streamer by voting in polls that decide what they do next.

HP Omen X 17 review: A stylish gaming laptop with beefy innards
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 3:00 pm
HP have been making a bit of a comeback of late. Everywhere you look it’s Omen this and Omen X sponsored that, so I thought it was high time I saw what all the fuss was about. What I’ve got here is the Omen X 17, or the catchily named HP Omen X 17-ap003na to […]

Stellaris’ next expansion tells tales of new horizons
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 3:21 pm
One of the best things about Paradox’s increasingly feature-studded and DLC-expanded 4X strategy sandbox Stellaris is its focus on storytelling. In the vein of Crusader Kings 2, you’ll find yourself frequently confronted with decisions to make as the ever-living Emperor Of Space, which can often spiral into lengthy story arcs with sometimes spectacular end results.

The first major 'PUBG' tournament takes place in Berlin this summer
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 2:08 pm

Player Unknown Battlegrounds, aka PUBG, has been pushing its way to the eSports realm for quite some time now. While it has moved beyond the straight-up battle royale genre it popularized with new gameplay like War Mode, it's the behind the scenes tech that will have the most impact on the game's success as an eSport title, including its 3D replay systems and help from chipmakers like AMD. Now, according to a report from Polygon, PUBG's first major eSports tournament take place July 25th through the 29th.

Grand Theft Auto V launches Premium Online Edition
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 12:51 pm
A new edition of Grand Theft Auto V launched today, though it’s not much to get excited about. The £68 Grand Theft Auto V: Premium Online Edition contains Rockstar’s open-world murder simulator plus a bundle of not-very-exciting vehicles, properties, weapons, cash, and clothes for the multiplayer side, GTA Online. It’s not really worth it.

Battlefield 1 rallies the troops for one final offensive
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 23 April 2018, 1:17 pm
While EA undoubtedly have their problems, they’ve gotten a lot better at supporting their big-name multiplayer games. It seemed safe to assume that when Battlefield 1‘s final DLC module – Apocalypse – was released, that the game would find itself put on a back-burner. Instead, Dice recently announced that a new playmode called Shock Operations was in […]

DNA-stealing shooter Beacon in early access next week

“There’s nothing like harvesting the deoxyribonucleic acid from the corpses of your enemies and using it to modify your own genome to become an all-crushing gunwarrior capable of defeating entire planets” my grandmother used to say. She would have liked the look of Beacon, a top-down shooter with shapes and colours arranged in such a […]
