Destiny cookbook imagines a truly alien future food called 'coleslaw'

I respect cabbage. It's a versatile, tactile, nutritious vegetable and like the upcoming Destiny 2 expansion, it is beyond light—you'll probably burn as many calories as you consume trying to hork a damn cabbage down. But if you, like me, have been wondering if there's a better way to eat cabbage than biting into it like an apple over and over, the upcoming official Destiny cookbook has an answer.

Get the Intel Core i7-9700F for $280, its lowest price yet

AMD's Ryzen processors are generally regarded as some of the best CPUs for gaming, thanks to their abundance of CPU cores and low prices.

That's the lowest recorded price for the CPU yet.

To celebrate, Valve posted an update that looks back on a year's worth of experiments and teases a little bit about what's coming next, and finally launched the Community Recommendations storefront feature it began testing last year.

Platinum Games says it's still working on mysterious action game Babylon's Fall

Babylon's Fall, a new project in development at Nier: Automata studio Platinum Games, was announced in 2018, with release expected to happen sometime in 2019. It almost immediately fell off the radar, though, until 547 days later, when the developers reappeared to remind the world that it still existed but would be out considerably later than initially planned. Instead of the 2019 launch, it promised "more information next summer," which effectively pushed the release into late 2020.

AMD's 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X is just $260. Tell me again why the 3800XT exists

The best thing about AMD's recent "XT" refresh is not the slightly faster clocks that the new models bring over their regular "X" counterparts, but the subsequent price drops for the older chips. Case in point, the 8-core Ryzen 7 3700X is available for $259.99 on Newegg today. That's the lowest price it's ever been. It also makes the 8-core Ryzen 7 3800XT for $399.99 even less of a comparative value proposition.

High-end Turing GPUs may be off the cards as Nvidia makes way for Ampere

Normally we're very much of the opinion that if you're in the market for new hardware you should just ignore the rumour mill and buy what you need today. But, even if there weren't compelling noises proclaiming the death of enthusiast Nvidia Turing GPUs, we couldn't in good conscience recommend you buy a new high-end graphics card today.
