    Sony PlayStation 5 Console Confirmed Powered by 8-core Zen 2 CPU, Navi and Ray Tracing Confirmed

    Sony's own lead system architect Mark Cerny spilled the beans on the company's upcoming "PlayStation 5" games console - the name isn't confirmed, but it's a PlayStation, and it's the fifth, so, following from the previous nomenclature just makes sense, doesn't it? One particular detail, however...

    How Do You Decide Which Games To Buy And Play?

    I don't put much store in what professional reviewers say anymore. I do read some reviews sometimes though. I never read player reviews on Steam or Metacritic. Metacritic is the worst source of player reviews that I have ever run across. People pass out zeros on games for any reason possible. If...

    Steam causing weird hardware chimes

    You know that ding when a hardware change is detected by Windows? Like when you unplug/plug a pendrive? I'm getting this now, when I start Steam and it affects my new Corsair H100i RGB Platinum, where the LEDs go off and on about six times during a few minutes whilst Steam is running. When I...

    Monster Hunter: World Gets High-Res Texture Pack Update

    Capcom's "Monster Hunter: World" opened to generally positive reviews on the backs of strong gameplay mechanics, inventory system, and an addictive yet simple RPG quest, although we found it falling slightly short in the eye-candy department, as its visuals and texture-quality felt dated and a...

    Which classic games are you playing?

    For me, a classic game is one you keep returning to, no matter the age of the game, but they do tend to be from the 90s and early 2000s. I like to dip into numerous old games, once I've managed to get them going on Windows 10, which is entirely possible with most of them. One of my all time...

    Ubisoft Removes Assassin's Creed III From Uplay and Steam in Favor of AC3 Remaster

    News of Assassin's Creed III getting a remaster was met with lukewarm reception from the get go, primarily because the original game does not rank high in the preference of games in the series for most people. Personally, I thought it was an underrated game but does have a slow start that can...

    Are digital stores bad for launching games at full price?

    I'm not knocking digital store, I love them. I own way too many games, most of them purchased for only a few bucks. I recently bought Mass Effect Andromeda for $4 and Titan2/Battlefield 1 combo for $11. Three games for $15 total or less then 1/3 the price of Metro Exodus $49, the only new game...

    Deus Ex: Human Revolution or Mankind Divided?

    I dip into the original game from time to time and still have my original CDs. But I never managed to finish it completely, even though I spent months playing it. Both HR and MD have glowing reviews, but from what I can see, Human Revolution seems to be the most popular, especially as the...
