Devotion returns almost two years after a China-centric controversy saw it removed from Steam

In early 2019 the indie horror game Devotion, which PCG thought was pretty great, was discovered to contain a reference to China's president, Xi Jinping. A piece of paper in the game had references to Xi, the word 'moron', and the Disney character Winnie the Pooh: the latter is a comparison that has been widely used to mock Xi, to the extent that China banned an entire Winnie the Pooh movie because of it.

Scuttlebutt says no more GeForce RTX 2060 or 2060 Super cards are being made

It's a frustrating time to be in the market for a graphics card, because all of the new stuff from Nvidia (GeForce RTX 30 series) and AMD (Radeon RX 6000 series) are sold out. To make matters worse, some of the previous generation options are grossly overpriced, like the GeForce RTX 2060 and GeForce RTX 2060 Super, both of which are rumored to have now ended production.

It achieved that mainly on the promised involvement of Yasumi Matsuno, director and writer of Final Fantasy Tactics, as well as its composer Hitoshi Sakimoto. Two years later developer Playdek put Unsung Story on hold, and in 2017 sold it to Little Orbit.

Call of Duty: Cold War YouTubers are trying to crack the code of its matchmaking

Since launch, Call of Duty: Black Ops – Cold War's skill-based matchmaking system has remained a mystery. Where most competitive shooters estimate a player's skill level with a visible ELO rating number, CoD games have traditionally hidden those details in the background. To hopefully shed some light on how Cold War determines skill, a group of Call of Duty YouTubers, led by TheXclusiveAce, ran a small experiment and shared their findings in the video above.

Starbase, the EVE Online-meets-Minecraft game, is looking for more alpha testers

Starbase struck us as an "EVE Online-Minecraft hybrid" when it was announced by Trine studio Frozenbyte in mid-2019, and it certainly promised big things: Build spaceships and entire stations from basic nuts-and-bolts components, explore the stars, form corporations, and go to war with one another (because we always end up going to war, don't we?) in a very destructible universe.
