Microsoft teases Doom Eternal coming to Xbox Game Pass with a double-hidden message

Microsoft's acquisition of ZeniMax Media promises to be a game-changer in a number of ways, not least for owners of the Xbox Game Pass. Xbox boss Phil Spencer has already confirmed that Bethesda's "iconic franchises," including the big new stuff we're waiting for like Starfield and The Elder Scrolls 6, will be added to Game Pass, and now it looks like Doom Eternal is headed there as well.

The Talos Principle 2 is 'definitely' still happening, Croteam says

I really enjoyed Croteam's philosophical puzzle game The Talos Principle when it came out in 2014, and so I was genuinely excited when the studio said a couple of years later than Talos Principle 2 "is going to happen." I had no idea how it was going to happen, given the first game's very definite, end-of-story finish, but that's a problem for someone else—someone like, for instance, The Talos Principle co-writer Jonas Kyratzes, who told me in a recent chat that despite the studio's silence on the matter since the game was announced, it is definitely still happening.

How and where to buy an Nvidia RTX 3090

Here we are again: Another giant hardware release, so soon after the launch of the RTX 3080. The new Nvidia RTX 3090 goes on sale Thursday. When the card goes on sale, our vigilant hardware team will be keeping track of the 3090's availability on Nvidia's own store, and from other major retailers and hardware manufacturers. We're doing the same for the RTX 3080 if you're looking for that card, too.

Yes, you can have sex in Baldur's Gate 3

One of the best things about Baldur's Gate 2 is the way the NPCs interact with each other. They're a mixed bunch, to put it mildly, and sometimes they won't get along, to the point that they'll occasionally fight or even refuse to be in the same party together. They'll take similar issue with your actions, too, if they start to think that you're not the leader they're looking for.

Nvidia apologizes in advance for 'limited supply' of RTX 3090s for Thursday's launch

If you thought the RTX 3090 might be easy to snatch up because it costs $1,499 (£1,399), today's blog post from Nvidia suggests a different reality for Thursday's launch. The post lays out the basic specs and performance of the RTX 3090, trying to make it clear that the audience for the high-end card is creative professionals and researchers, not most gamers. And with that comes a preemptive sorry: "Since we built GeForce RTX 3090 for a unique group of users, like the Titan RTX before it, we want to apologise upfront that this will be in limited supply on launch day," says Nvidia.
