World of Horror, a creepy 1-bit style horror RPG, will release next month

World of Horror is a gorgeous horror RPG with an art style inspired by manga artist Junji Ito. Presented in an austere 1-bit aesthetic (think The Return of Obra Dinn), it's a card-oriented RPG with roguelite elements, turn-based combat, puzzles, choice driven scenarios... basically, it seems to be a lot of things, and it's the game I'm most excited to play in early 2020.

But that's not the only place where Geralt is enjoying newfound popularity. In an announcement earlier this week (via Kotaku UK), publisher Orbit Books said that it's reprinting more than a half-million copies of Andrzej Sapkowski's novels to meet new demand in the US.

Nvidia drops the price of the RTX 2060 Founders Edition to $299

The RTX 2060 is Nvidia's cheapest graphics card capable of ray tracing, and originally launched a year ago for an MSRP of $350 (though it was difficult to find a 2060 at that price for a while). An upgraded model was released in mid-2019 for $400, the RTX 2060 Super, and now Nvidia has officially lowered the price of the regular RTX 2060 to $299.
