LG's 34-inch ultra-wide FreeSync monitor is $70 off

Among the best gaming monitors, you'll notice a ubiquitous trend. Whereas non-gaming monitors emphasize aesthetics over functionality, we the players care more about features that noticeably mitigate the technical hurdles of PC gaming. Of these, adaptive synchronization stands out as a must-have, and LG's currently on-sale 34UM59-P display offers just that in the form of FreeSync.

Lair of the Clockwork God is a genre-switching adventure game

Ben There, Dan That and its sequel Time Gentleman, Please! are excellent point-and-click romps with good gags, squabbling protagonists and, yes, quite a few puzzles. It's been a long time since Size Five Games' titular reluctant adventurers have left the comfort of their sofa, but they've finally found themselves embroiled in another fiasco in Lair of the Clockwork God, an adventure game that is also, equally but kind of separately, a platformer.

Fallout: New Vegas mod adds a post-game that reflects your choices

Fallout: New Vegas, normally reactive, stops short of letting you continue the game and enjoy the ultimate consequences of your actions once the credits roll. It just ends.

We Happy Few has been invaded by robots in the new DLC

We Happy Few's first DLC misadventure is out today, and it's quite the departure from the drugged-up dystopia you might be familiar with. Psychedelic fascism is out, vintage alien robots are in. There's a lot of gloom mixed in with the whimsy in Wellington Wells, but in the underground robot-infested lab, things look a bit more lighthearted.

Unpacking is a zen puzzle game about neatly filling your home

The only good bit of the nightmarish process of moving house is unpacking everything once you get to your new home. It's just bricks and mortar when you arrive, but then you get to fill it with all your stuff, from mundane pots and pans to treasured trinkets. Unpacking is attempting to capture that oddly satisfying experience, wrapping it up in a zen puzzle game with an endearing aesthetic.
