Square Enix slash Steam prices for the weekend

It’s the weekend, or at least after work-hours for most on a Friday, so might as well pick up something to demolish your free time. Square Enix are running a rather nice sale on Steam for the weekend, cutting 50% off the price on most of their bigger games, and slapping deeper discounts on a […]

The anatomy of a scoop in journo-thriller The Occupation

As a lifelong fan of immersive sims since before we had a name for the genre, I need to get my grubby mitts on The Occupation, an investigative thriller set in politically taut ’80s London. With a clock ticking in real-time and a conspiracy to be untraveled before a quiet and painfully legal government crackdown, […]

Fallout 76 adding free new modes, quests and main story in 2019

Troubled pseudo-MMO Fallout 76 has had its fair share of problems, but Bethesda aren’t calling it quits yet. Celebrating (commemorating?) the game’s hundredth day since launch, Bethesda have published their update road-map for the game for the rest of the year.

Left Alive looks more Alpha Protocol than Metal Gear

Despite being set in the same universe as Square Enix’s old Front Mission strategy series, Left Alive is ostensibly more of a Metal Gear-styled stealth game with the occasional mech fight. At least, that’s the plan, but for better or worse, today’s fourteen minutes of new footage reminds me most of Alpha Protocol, Obsidian’s endearingly […]

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti vs GTX 1060: Out with the old, in with the new

Ever since it came out all those years ago, Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 1060 has been one of the go-to graphics cards of this generation. Capable of superb frame rates at 1080p and 1440p alike, there’s no wonder it’s become one of the most popular GPUs on the planet. Now, however, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 […]

What videogame maps can tell us about their worlds

We don’t expect much of a typical video game map. As long as it guides us to our destination (and perhaps looks pretty while doing so) most of us won’t waste a second thought on it. And yet, maps can be much more than tools that make our way from A to B a little […]

Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti vs RTX 2060: Which one should you buy?

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 1660 Ti is finally here. Hailing from the same Turing family as the rest of Nvidia’s RTX graphics cards but without all the fancy ray tracing and DLSS tech inside it (hence the lack of RTX moniker), the GTX 1660 Ti sure is one powerful graphics card – so much so […]
