"Use the Fortnite replay system and a little in-game movie set magic to make a blockbuster hit highlighting the heroes of Season 4 and their adventures."

This two hour video of DOS game intros is a vintage delight

Video games were mindblowing in the '90s. Nowadays, it's possible to be unimpressed by a photo-realistic open world video game, but back then, Prince of Persia's excessively bloody death-by-spikes animation was devastating and poetic. How far we've come!

Modders and level creators continue to produce goods for the original Doom. Some even allow you to romance the demons. But nowadays they're often designed for modernised versions: source ports like ZDoom or GZDoom. These are cool, but it's neat to find a new Megawad created for the original DOS game, built under the ye olde engine restrictions (no free look, no slopes).

Steam has made changes to its 'Upcoming Releases' tab

Most Steam users will agree that the storefront's 'Upcoming' tab is a little on the unhelpful side. Given how many hundreds of games release on the platform every week, you can never be sure whether you're missing out on something great. But that's theoretically coming to an end, because Valve has just rolled out changes to the feature.

Mid-range graphics cards, like the Radeon RX 580 and Nvidia GTX 1060, are still overpriced for the most part. Some retailers have been trying to soften the blow, by throwing in PC games, power supplies, and other products when you buy a GPU. Right now the ASRock RX 580 is $299.99 on Newegg, and it comes with a free AB350 motherboard.

Fighting Fantasy Legends Portal releases today for all your dying in a dark hole needs

From the distant recesses of 1984, Nomad Games and Asmodee Digital have resurrected yet more classic 80s game books in a modern digital format. Roguelike game plus book combinations Deathtrap Dungeon, Trial of Champions, and Armies of Death are included in the release, each modified to use the same visually driven style as last year’s Fighting Fantasy Legends. Somewhere between a roguelike and a choose your own adventure, Fighting Fantasy is a card and dice based RPG with a branching narrative in a very classic adventure fantasy world—the kind of place that came out of the earliest days of Dungeons & Dragons. The publishers have also hinted that further gamebooks in the series will come to this game, though what form that takes remains to be seen.

60-player fantasy survival game Rend will launch on Early Access at the end of July

Rend is a 60-player survival game, but that undersells it somewhat. Players are divided into three factions, each collecting and storing souls in their Divinity Stones while simultaneously trying to destroy the stones belonging to other factions. Players can also form smaller clans within factions, and there are crafting and skill trees to work through as well. 

Madman beats Fallout: New Vegas on max difficulty without dying or killing anyone

Madman beats Fallout: New Vegas on max difficulty without dying or killing anyone

I've seen people beat Fallout: New Vegas without killing anyone. I've seen people beat it without dying. And I've seen people beat it without firing a single gun. But I've never seen someone beat it on the highest difficulty setting, with both hardcore mode and permadeath enabled, without killing anyone, without dying, without the help of any companions, and without using any weapons apart from boxing gloves—until today, that is. Because Youtuber Rhetam did exactly that, not only finishing the main story via the NCR path but also clearing every sidequest in the game despite the harsh rules he set for himself.
