Rockstar is giving away in-game cash and items in GTA Online and Red Dead Online

Take-Two Interactive announced today that Grand Theft Auto 5 is the best-selling game of the past decade, according to the NPD Group, while Red Dead Redemption 2 is the best-selling game of the past four years. If any of that sounds familiar, it could be because we mentioned it a couple of weeks ago: Activision owned the decade with Call of Duty, but it couldn't unseat GTA5 at the top.

Unconventional fantasy MMO Crowfall gets a funding boost as it nears release

Amazon's New World is one of the most anticipated MMOs in recent memory, and in part I think that's because it hasn't been extensively documented in backer updates and years long alpha tests. The lack of a crowdfunding campaign (which Amazon obviously didn't need) lends it more mystery than competitors such as Crowfall, which was Kickstarted in 2015 and has been in various stages of pre-alpha testing for the past five years.

Stadia Pro adds 2 more freebies, but subscribers are desperate for new games and missing features

The Google Stadia Pro free game library will grow by two on February 1, when Gylt and Metro Exodus make their debut on the platform. Unfortunately, it will also shrink by two right around the same time: Google said in the first "This Week on Stadia" update since December 26, 2019, that Rise of the Tomb Raider: 20 Year Celebration and Samurai Showdown will both be removed from the lineup on January 31—although you'll keep both as long as you claim them before they're gone.

Former Windows president reflects on how Apple's iPad broke Microsoft's brain

It's been close to a decade since the first iPad arrived, and though it didn't lead to a wholesale replacement of traditional PCs in favor of tablets as some analysts were predicting at the time, it did catch Microsoft off guard. Or as former Windows president Steven Sinofsky puts it, Microsoft was "blinded" to where Apple was headed.

Henry Cavill shows how he chopped up eight guys at once in a Witcher fight scene

The first episode of The Witcher on Netflix features an extended fight that Andy Kelly said in his recap is what convinced him that Henry Cavill was "born to play the role" of Geralt. In a fast single take, Geralt drops eight local goons, barely breaking a sweat, before his final faceoff with Renfri. "This is a brilliantly choreographed fight scene," he wrote. "And a surprisingly gruesome one too."

NZXT put a LCD screen in its coolers, and you can customize the image

Now that RGB lighting firmly has a hold over nearly ever hardware component and peripheral, there's isn't anything left to give the unicorn treatment—or is there? NZXT has released two new series in its popular line of Kraken coolers, the X-3 and Z-3, the latter of which features a customizable LCD screen. (That's the new X53, X63, X73, Z63, and Z73, just to be clear.)

Save $500 on this powerful Acer Predator Triton 500 with RTX 2080 Max-Q

Amazon has a hell of a one day-deal on a killer Acer Predator gaming laptop. Nab this 15-inch Acer Predator Triton 500 Thin for $2,000 until the rest of the day. The last time this Predator was this price was for one day last month. It's one of the best gaming laptops out there (one of our personal favorites with ray tracing) that gives you the performance without feeling you're dragging a concrete slab in your backpack.
