The last time we ventured into the frigid world of Frostpunk, children died, people were eaten, and there was something going on with soup. Five months after that debacle (oh, there was a generator explosion in there, too), developer 11 Bit Studios has revealed a new addition to the Arctic hellscape that surely can't possibly make life even worse for humanity's most desperate dregs.
The Humble Monthly Bundle for February is the Dark Souls of Humble Bundles (sorry, Austin), because Dark Souls 3 is this month's featured game. For $12, you get it, the Ashes of Ariandel DLC, and a bunch of other games that will be revealed at the beginning of March.
A GeForce GTX 1080 Ti will run you anywhere from around $980 to $1,400 or more right now, because of the effect that cryptocurrency mining is having the market. It's depressing, though if you're in the market for a prebuilt system, you can get around these inflated prices. Case in point, you can pick up an Alienware Aurora system with a GeForce GTX 1080 Ti tucked inside for less than $1,400.
If anyone needs reminding at just how volatile the cryptocurrency market is, and Bitcoin in particular, just look at the wild swings that have been happening lately. Or even just today—Bitcoin continued its recent downward trend and fell below $8,000 for the first time in 11 weeks earlier today, before recovering to above $9,000.
Gunpoint and Heat Signature creator Tom Francis recently revealed the bones of what could be his next game: Tactical Breach Wizards. It's still a work in progress and subject to change, but I dearly hope that title sticks.
Square Enix is getting ready to launch Final Fantasy XV to PC in a few weeks. In the meantime, fans of the series can purchase and play Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, a remastered version of the PlayStation 2 game that launched more than a decade ago. For those who do, AMD has made available a new Adrenalin Edition 18.2.1 GPU driver update that is optimized for the game.
The Far Cry 5 season pass will take players to some unusual places, and I'm not talking about deep-fried testicle festivals or forbidden bovine love. (Sorry, James.) I mean it in a very literal sense. It will include three separate adventures, each with a "unique Far Cry twist," featuring time travel, zombies, and a journey to another world.
Violet Cycle creator Marek Budik told us its eclectic style was influenced by the likes of Hyper Light Drifter, Transistor, Bastion and Nuclear Throne when we spoke with him last month. He also said that while Violet Cycle's stay in Early Access had been fruitful, he wanted to keep it as short as possible. That incubation comes to an end today as Violet Cycle officially launches on Steam for $10—discounted to $7.50 through February 9.
It was almost a year ago when Corsair launched its first gaming chair, the T1 Race. Now there is a revised version of that same chair, along with a new entry with more premium features, the T2 Road Warrior.
