This Call of Duty: Black Ops - Cold War Zombies mode is PlayStation exclusive for a year

Activision said at the beginning of October that Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War will begin "a completely new chapter" of Zombies, with a new setting, new characters, and for the first time in the series, cross-platform play. In light of that, it feels a little bit ironic that the new Zombies Onslaught mode, revealed today on the PlayStation Blog, is going to be a PlayStation 4/5 exclusive for a year.

Someone made Among Us in VR and it actually kind of works

Social deception game Among Us blew up recently, becoming one of the biggest games on Twitch. The resulting burst of creative energy—like cosmic rays from a supernova, except memes—has inevitably led to this: Among Us recreated in VRChat, with a full 3D version of the Skeld map, wires to connect, cards to swipe, and buttons to push. And you can actually play it like Among Us, with imposters, murders, and voting rounds.

Genshin Impact changes its troublesome Resin system, but not everyone is happy about it

Genshin Impact is a tremendously popular game, but there's one aspect of it that's unpopular among diehard players: The way it distributes Resin, an in-game resource that's used to enable end-game activities. We explained the problem in detail in Steven's story about Resin in Genshin Impact, but the short version is that if you want to do cool endgame stuff, you need a lot of Resin, and Genshin Impact metes it out sparingly.

The fan-made Mario 64 PC port is getting ray tracing

I think the Mario 64 port might be the coolest thing to happen on PC in 2020. Yeah, yeah, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Cyberpunk 2020, blah blah blah—here's a beloved game that has been brilliantly reverse-engineered and programmed to run on the PC, inspiring a community of modders to learn how it works and do entirely new things with it. There are tons of texture mod projects giving it a better makeover than Nintendo is doing with its own re-release on the Nintendo Switch, but that's really just the beginning of it. Modder Darío has something more ambitious already working inside Mario 64: ray tracing.

Intel's supposedly RTX 3070-level GPU, the Xe DG2, is running in its labs right now

Intel has turned on its first real gaming GPU, the Intel Xe DG2, for the first time. That might sound like it's just flipped a switch on a test rig and the thing has burst into life with little fanfare, but it is a lot more significant than that... though obviously less exciting than actually having a functional GPU that can match something like the upcoming Nvidia RTX 3070.
