Assassin’s Creed Origins’ Discovery Tour censors all the nudey statues

We’ve only just started exploring the newly released Discovery Tour for Assassin’s Creed Origins, but there’s something we thought you should know. Gone entirely are all the marble boobies and winkies. For what we can only assume are “educational purposes”, the game’s many statues have been rather ridiculously covered up by a plague of seashells.

Even The Ocean shows us how good people let bad things happen

CCG Slay the Spire takes as many cues from Pokemon as it does Hearthstone

CCG Slay the Spire takes as many cues from Pokemon as it does Hearthstone

Slay the Spire is not really a card game at all. Sure, it has plenty of the elements of a card game - cards being the top one, of course. It also has an energy system that is reminiscent of Hearthstone’s mana and requires you to build a deck. It even maintains the click-and-drag attack options now central to the genre. But it is not a card game - at least, not like the ones you know.

Here are some of the best card games on PC.

Slay the Spire’s most obvious deviations are its fast pace and constantly rotating deck. So, while a card in Hearthstone or Gwent is discarded after it has been played, in Slay the Spire cards are put into a discard pile that is continually shuffled back into play once you run out of cards. That means, in longer battles, your strength can come from the fact that you are able to play the same card multiple times.

Intel have plenty of competition for high-end GPUs. Here are the best graphics cards around.

Intel are expected to one day put together some form of discrete GPU since they acquired AMD’s top GPU-mind.
