As my T-65B X-Wing glides into view, I survey the scene up ahead. TIE fighters chase after nimble A-Wings, a flurry of green laser fire in their wake. A group of X-Wings circle an Imperial Cruiser, unloading proton torpedoes in a desperate attempt to lower the Empire's defences. To my left, I spot some TIE Interceptors headed toward my fellow X-Wings. Instinctively I barrel forward and harry them before a well-timed missile turns my ship into space debris. My heroics were short-lived, but I'm soon able to pick a new vehicle and rejoin the fray, gaining my revenge on the TIE Bomber that so casually stopped me before.
Each year, EVE Vegas has a track record of raising thousands of dollars for good causes.
Historically we’ve assisted several charities, most notably the Icelandic Children’s Hospital and the Get Well Gamers foundation.
This year we’re incredibly proud to announce that we’ll be supporting AbleGamers with all our EVE Vegas 2017 charity fundraising. This includes the silent auction for Tranquility Server Blades, as well as the annual EVE Vegas raffle, and a new event unique to this year.
As part of EVE Vegas 2017, we’re happy to announce that out fundraising efforts will be supplemented by a charity screening of Blade Runner 2049, which premiers during EVE Vegas this year, on October 6th 2017.
A screening of the movie will occur on Sunday, October 8th that will be exclusive to EVE Vegas attendees.
CCP have secured Auditorium #3 at United Artist Showcase Theatre 8, which is over at the Showcase Mall building by the MGM Grand Hotel.
The location seats a total of 288 and is a 22-minute walk away from The Linq, where EVE Vegas 2017 is hosted, but can also be reached quickly by the Las Vegas Monorail, which stops at MGM Grand Station and departs directly from The Linq & Harra’s station at the EVE Vegas Venue.

While companies like ASUS, Acer and NVIDIA are working on making gaming laptops thinner and lighter, HP is going in the opposite direction with its huge Omen X Laptop. It weighs a whopping 10.8 lbs, which is close to other 17-inch gaming notebooks. In exchange for being able to carry it easily, you get an incredibly customizable notebook; one with enough graphics horsepower to handle anything you throw at it -- even 4K gaming.
The biggest beef for VR gamers is the lack of, well, VR games. That's about to change soon thanks to Bethesda, which revealed that all three of the VR titles it announced previously will be coming to the Playstation VR and HTC Vive by the end of the year. And those titles should have you salivating: Doom VFR arrives on December 1st to the PSVR and HTC Vive, Fallout 4 VR hits the Vive on December 12th, and Skyrim VR will land on the PSVR on November 17th.
Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

By now, Overwatch gamers are accustomed to getting updates. Blizzard keeps spoiling us with new characters, modes, and events. They in turn keep the game fresh for returning players 14 months down the line. Judging by its latest announcement, the developer will keep tightening the screws on its well-oiled blockbuster. For its sixth competitive season, Overwatch is receiving a decent shake-up.

The Anno RTS series focuses more on civilization-building than straight-up combat, and its later editions explored that premise centuries into the future. But the franchise's next entry casts back a couple hundred years to the past when mankind's maps weren't fully filled in. Today at Gamescom, Ubisoft announced Anno 1800, putting players in charge of nations setting sail for trade and diplomacy.
It's going to be a bit before we can play Alto's Odyssey. The followup to the ridiculously relaxing snowboarding game Alto's Adventure won't be out any time soon, developer Built By Snowman writes. "The endless desert still awaits and it's even vaster and more mysterious than we envisioned when we first conceptualized a new adventure for Alto and his friends," a blog post reads.

Stop me if you've heard this before: The makers of a huge multi-platform game want to unite their disparate users so everyone can play together, regardless of whether they're playing on PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One, and Sony is blocking that. This time, it's Ark: Survival Evolved. Lead designer was answering questions on Twitter recently and when someone asked if cross-network play would ever happen, he replied with the following. "We have it working internally, but currently Sony won't allow it."
