The infamous A Game of Thrones board game is finally digital

A Game of Thrones: The Board Game has come to Steam. It's a digital adaptation of the board game of the same name, one that has stood up to almost 20 years of players. The digital port is by all accounts quite good, with fully-functional  multiplayer and singleplayer. The multiplayer is the real draw, though, and it can take a while to play a full game, so be sure to find people you trust to go backstabbing with. It's based on the A Game of Thrones novels, for the record, not the HBO show. It's from before George R.R. Martin was mainstream famous.

John Romero says Doom Guy's name is Doom Guy

Today is the 26th Anniversary of the launch of Doom 2, so John Romero was doing some trivia on Twitter and answered a burning question that lots of people wanted to know the answer to. I wasn't one of them and actually I can't guarantee that lots of people wanted to know the answer but I guess at least one person did. They saw their shot and they took it.

Razer announces new Blade Stealth 13 gaming laptop with Intel Xe and Nvidia GTX graphics

I was impressed with the Intel Tiger Lake sample we received a few weeks back: the new 10nm chip offers a significant improvement over 10th Gen Ice Lake chips and comes sporting our first real glimpse of the Intel Xe GPU architecture in action. I also specifically called upon the Razer Blade Stealth as a potential vessel for such a mobile part in its unfettered 28W configuration, and so it has come to pass.

Razer unveils its first gaming chair, the Razer Iskur

The Razer community just won't quit. It's been a key proponent behind getting Razer into the kitchen utility game with the Razer toaster, and now it appears that its constant badgering for a gaming chair has paid off. That's right folks, Razer has launched its first gaming chair, the Razer Iskur, during its inaugural Razercon.

Amazon is giving up on Crucible, offering full refunds

Amazon's free-to-play shooter, Crucible, was a flop. We gave the game a 48% in our review, and a month after release Amazon sent it back to closed beta. The plan was to continue development with feedback from the small group of players that had gathered around it, and then determine what to do next. I assumed it'd be released back into the public for another shot at success, but that's not going to happen.
