about X hours ago from

As a celebration of the best MMOs around, we’ve put together this list of old favourites and exciting newer releases to give a good spread of options for however you choose to play. We’ve also tried to include MMOs on a range of platforms, including PC, PS4, Xbox One, and even mobiles, as well as free and pay-to-pay games to suit all budgets.

There’s nothing quite like finding a great MMO to get lost in. The time investment alone makes them unique among other video game genres, but the best ones make hundreds of hours seem like nothing at all.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s traversal mechanics can be used in boss fights, but some have restrictions

about X hours ago from

One of the more immediately obvious upgrades in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice compared to more recent From Software games is the freedom of the movement.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice’s protagonist has access to a grappling hook they can use in a few ways, from reaching high vantage points to survey the area, to getting out of sticky situation quickly.

As you may have seen in the game’s early trailers, the same tool can be used to gain an advantage over bosses during these fights, and From Software knew this and made sure they – at least the ones that allow it – are designed with that in mind.

Forza Horizon 4 removes Floss and Carlton emotes in latest update

about X hours ago from

The latest update to Forza Horizon 4 has removed the ‘Carlton’ and ‘Floss’ avatar emotes from the game. Who’s afraid of getting sued?

Playground Games has released the Series 5 update to Forza Horizon 4. Along with extra content and a list of fixes and improvements, the patch notes mention the emote being pulled from the title.

A reason wasn’t provided, but we can assume it has something to do with the lawsuits against Epic Games. We can’t find any information on whether Microsoft Studios was sent a cease and desist letter over the use of the Carlton or Floss emotes as of press time. Probably just covering its back.

Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 review: ray-tracing, DLSS and solid performance in a more affordable package

about X hours ago from

Back in August, Nvidia revealed and then quickly released the GeForce RTX 2070, 2080 and 2080 Ti, the latest next-generation graphics hardware. Their more affordable little brother is about to arrive – but is it a worthy upgrade?

The Nvidia GeForce RTX 2060 has some impressive claims to live up to. At $350 it’s by far the cheapest of the Nvidia next-generation RTX graphics hardware devices, but Nvidia also made some aggressive statements about the card around its CES 2019 reveal. While initial rumors pegged this as a bargain-basement basic card with stripped back features, the 2060 actually has access to those much-touted new additions like Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) and ray-tracing. Furthermore, Nvidia claims you’ll be able to get some solid performance out of the card that theoretically should totally surpass its much cheaper predecessor, the GTX 1060. It’s so good, in fact, that this might be a worthy upgrade for users of the 1070, 1070 Ti and even 1080. Obviously, we wanted to test that.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s newest DLC ignores gay characters

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’s newest DLC ignores gay characters

One of the best things about Assassin’s Creed Odyssey is how it allows you to mould your character how you see fit.

For example, my Kassandra shagged everyone. Sex was just another weapon in her arsenal, and her antics were enough to make even Ezio blush.

Whatever your choices, the latest DLC, Legacy of the First Blade Part 2, doesn’t seem to care.
