  • 4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won’t be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly “200 meters to 100 meters,” Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and

  • Except the Start Menu was good, and the Windows key, uncomfortably jammed between age-old mainstays Ctrl and Alt, was dangerous. But in the ’90s, the Windows key terrorized me, coldly destroying my gaming adventures time and time again. The Windows key did not stop being a scumbag when Windows moved onto 98, or 2000. Over the years, though, as some of us got keyboards that could shut down the Windows key, it started on the long road to redemption. And starting with Windows Vista in 2007, after a

  • That’s as per a report from the Wall Street Journal, which says licensing fees and other details have been worked out with the WSJ, the New York Post, the Washington Post, BuzzFeed News and Business Insider.

With the fees agreed, a launch could happen before the end of the month. This hasn’t come completely out of the blue:

  • Surviving the Aftermath follows the general philosophy of its predecessor, in that you’ve got to build a colony for humans in an inhospitable environment. The survival management genre is still relatively new, yet Surviving the Aftermath—simply Aftermath from here on out because it’s the apocalypse and who has time for formal names?—has a surprisingly conservative start. Straight away, however, there are some much appreciated conveniences that make surviving the end of everything just a wee bit

  • Now, this could be framed as Intel getting spooked by AMD, and cutting its prices in response. Considering the new threat AMD now poses, that’s a theory that’s not without merit – but of course it doesn’t tell the whole story. I’m not just talking about the impact to profits either – cutting prices on products can alter the perception customers have of them. Releasing more wallet-friendly devices could also be a nice PR win for Intel – though at the moment AMD seems to be stealing all the limeli

    Microsoft recent Surface launch was full of surprises, as the company took the wraps off a folding phone (the Surface Duo) and PC device (the Surface Neo). But alongside these headline-catching launches were the latest generation of the company’s Surface devices, with new additions to the Laptop, Book and Pro lines. But with so many new offerings coming to the market, how does Microsoft look to ensure it stays focused on its self-declared aim to “enable people to achieve more”? Shifts”As we rele

  • It’s a noteworthy admission, as Google’s Android mobile operating system is one of Microsoft’s biggest rivals. In the past, the company has tried – and failed – to take on Android with its own operating system for mobile devices: Windows Mobile. On one hand, it seems like Microsoft has acknowledged just how hard it is to compete with Android – which is currently the most-used operating system on the planet – a title Microsoft’s own Windows OS used to have. As for the dual-screen laptop Surface N

  • Plants vs Zombies: Battle for Neighborville, the latest chapter in the tale of the eternal conflict between the relentless hordes of the undead and the relentlessly upbeat armies of greenery, was announced and launched, partially, in September. The idea was that after the initial rollout, new modes and features would be added over a six-week stretch leading up to the full release, which took place today.

  • Indeed, many gamers around the world have taken notice of your company’s actions, understandably calling for boycotts of Activision Blizzard gaming sites.” We urge you in the strongest terms to reconsider your decision with respect to Mr. Chung. Blizzard has already reduced Blitzchung’s punishment, but it remains substantial: He remains suspended from Hearthstone competition for six months. It’s a very slight climbdown, and unlikely to satisfy the letter’s notably bipartisan authors. All of this

  • The update that brought Photo Mode to Remedy’s outstanding shooter Control today also delivered another, unexpected surprise.

Remedy issued a statement saying that the intent was to use the Epic Store launcher “to validate future p
