Apex Legends is going to start penalizing players for leaving early

Last week's rollout of the Apex Legends 1.1 update caused some brief moments of stress for players who logged into the game and discovered that their accounts had apparently been reset.

Some players also noticed the appearance, and then sudden disappearance, of a "leaving early" penalty for players who bail out of a game too quickly.

Fantasy General 2 is a modern sequel to the classic wargame

Fantasy General was a 1996 wargame for people who rightly felt that the otherwise excellent Panzer General didn't have enough dragons. And it threw in wizards, undead and—just for the hell of it—mechs, to boot. More than two decades later, it's getting an unexpected second wind in the form of Fantasy General 2 later this year.

Mortal Kombat 11 trailer confirms Kitana's return

Mortal Kombat 11's string of ultra-violent, gloriously silly trailers have got me ready to crack some skulls, completely unlike this subdued TV spot.

With ray tracing about to arrive on our three-year-old Pascal graphics cards later this month, we can all take a breath in unison to celebrate the fact that we don't have to pledge allegiance to Nvidia's RTX promise. Instead, we can take the money we would have otherwise spent on the best graphics card, and instead upgrade a core component in our PC gaming careers that far too often goes unappreciated. Namely the screen.

Play as an angry crab with a kitchen knife in this free comedy game

The crustaceous cousin to Untitled Goose Game, and Catlateral Damage, Knife 2 Meat U is a game about a horrible crab. A horrible crab that has somehow got hold of a blade. You play as said crab in this silly comedy physics game, skittering about a house and garden causing trouble for the owners, who were most likely hoping to have you for dinner.
