Red Dead Redemption 2 hasn't been announced for the PC yet, but I'm enough of an optimist that I still believe it'll arrive sometime down the tracks—and so I'm a little disappointed by the word from Rockstar today that the game has been delayed into the spring of 2018. Because that likely means any eventual PC release is even further off.
Kerbal Space Program has been around in one form or another since 2011, and went into full release in 2015. But even with all that water under the bridge, the past year has quite possibly been the most tumultuous for developer Squad. Last May, creator and lead developer Felipe Falanghe announced that he was leaving the studio and the game; and this May, it came to light that Valve has hired the development team, or some portion of it.
Just last week we took a look at the most obscure Steam achievements available, but I fear that list is now woefully out of date. Yesterday, a game called Running Through Russia launched on Steam Early Access for $1, and it has over 4,000 achievements to unlock. It's an endless runner about collecting vodka and dodging bears, but that part comes secondary to the constant stream of little grey boxes that appear in the bottom right corner of your screen while playing.
That a new Dragon Age is in the works at BioWare isn't quite as sure a thing as it was prior to EA's recent decision to put the Mass Effect series on hold following the tepid response to ME: Andromeda. But even though it hasn't been officially confirmed yet, writer Alexis Kennedy—whose previous credits include the narrative-heavy Tales of Fallen London and Sunless Sea—recently confirmed to Eurogamer that the project is happening.
Grimoire Cards in Destiny, as the Destiny Wiki explains, are "awards that players earn when they perform certain actions," like killing a particular guy or finding a new location. They can improve experience gains or drops, but their primary purpose is to tell the story behind the game by fleshing out the lore related to characters, weapons and locations. Somewhat maddeningly for players, you can only actually read the cards outside of the game, either on Bungie's website or the official app, which naturally kept a lot of players from bothering.
Size seems to matter less and less these days when it comes to building a high-end PC, but if you're not yet ready to join the small form factor movement, you can go in the complete opposite direction with a full-tower chassis. One of them is one sale right now for a tantalizing price—over at Newegg, you can grab Corsair's Obisidian 750D for $120.
Tekken 7 is headed to PC at the end of next week (June 2), and Nvidia already has a Game Ready driver available, which you can download and install right now.
Plextor is looking to give Samsung for its money in the NVMe storage space, which taps into the PCIe bus for faster performance. While Samsung's 960 Evo series is one of the more popular options that balances price and performance, Plextor hopes to give the company some competition with it M8Se series starting at €83.
