A few days ago, Valve announced that at long last, players would be returning to the Half-Life universe with Half-Life: Alyx. Today, more details on the VR project have emerged. Set between the events of Half-Life and Half-Life 2, the game is scheduled to release in March 2020. The game charts the course of Alyx and
The Samsung CRG9 is easily the most preposterous gaming monitor I’ve ever laid eyes on. It’s not the sheer size of it that boggles the mind. Oh no. A diagonal of 49in and an aspect ratio of 32:9 is nothing after last year’s equally large and equally wide CHG90 monitor. It’s the resolution of the
Returning vault hunters will help Mad Moxxi break into Handsome Jacks Casino in the appropriately titled: Moxxi’s Heist of the Handsome Jackpot.

Logitech’s G935 headset is quite possibly the most powerful gaming headset of all time. It’s so mighty, in fact, that I was able to push my keyboard to one side after I’d set it up, as its three rear-facing function buttons gave me all the tools I needed to control my entire PC from it.
The first patch for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order after its launch on Friday arrived last night and it’s not a huge one but it is handy. Probably most notable is a fix for a problem that was making the game run and load slowly for some, though a fix for bug that made dynamic

The Rabid Jotaz is one of the earliest optional boss fights you can come across in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, and as a veteran of Sekiro and various Soulslikes, I can say that this guy is no joke. But follow our Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Rabid Jotaz boss fight guide and you’ll see
What’s a Jedi without their Force Powers?

A new season in Teamfight Tactics means that we’ve somehow got a whole bunch of brand new champions and items. Putting them all together in one coherent TFT comp might be a little trickier as you’ve now got to contend with elements, as well as the fact that everything is new again. So with the
Stardew Valley is about to reap a bountiful harvest. It’s been a long dry spell for farmers across the valley, but creator Eric “ConcernedApe” Barone’s massive update 1.4 is just about ready for market. From fishponds to finance everything in between, nary a grain of corn will be overlooked when Stardew’s big free update lands

I’m still struggling with what, exactly, Humble Originals are meant to be, and I think Humble might be as well. They’re only available through Humble’s monthly subscription service, and the official gubbins says they’re “brand new games” that are “a little risky, a little experimental, and a lot of fun!” In practice, results seem to
Now that our console cousins are traipsing all over Death Stranding, the mystery of what it even is has lifted: it’s mostly a game about having a nice hike, trying to keep your balance and not to stack it down a hill because of your comically large backpack. I’m well up for a careful walk.
I’ve been thinking a lot about “weird games” lately. When folks call things weird it seems to be a shortcut for saying, “this is different from what I usually experience, and was, therefore, unexpected.” Sometimes it is dismissive, sometimes it is contentious, sometimes ‘weird’ is worn as a badge of honour. In a past life,
Divinity: Original Sin 2 has had a couple of free Gift Bags drop already. Think of them as small mutators that add little features to the base game which you can toggle on or off. The first bag added new customisation options and a respec mirror onboard the Lady Vengeance. Bag two had herb gardens,
Trying to find good gaming mouse if you’re left-handed is still a trying experience in this day and age. Sure, there are growing numbers of ambidextrous mice out there, such as our best gaming mouse champ the Asus ROG Pugio and Steelseries Sensei 310, but they pale in comparison to the number of right-handed mice.
Following the departure of chairman Shawn Layden, Sony has named Hermen Hulst, Guerilla Games’ director and co-founder, as the new head of Worldwide Studios and will be tasked to oversee software development across Sony’s 14 internal game studios.

Reports of class warfare in Fallout 76 were probably overblown, but far from fabricated. The recent introduction of Fallout 1st, a paid subscription service offering cosmetics, conveniences and (not-so) private servers, has created something of a rift. At first that just meant the odd subscriber got attacked by people in bear costumes. Now the subscribers
Terry Bogard, the baseball cap-loving combatant from SNK’s Fatal Frame and King of Fighters series, is now available as a DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo also released update 6.0.0., which brings hero balance tweaks, item adjustments, and new spirits in the Vault. Battle Arena also received a number of new features, including
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. Robocode is a coding game about telling your little robot exactly how to move, dodge, aim, shoot, and assess its situation so that it can destroy all opposing robots in the arena. It’s also a game
