But despite what it looks like, Alaskan Bush People isn't filmed where — or how — you think.

In the meantime, to get you up to speed on Wireless' leading man, here's everything you need to know about Tye Sheridan.

Once, in a drugged and unguarded moment, he even confused the former for the latter. On its surface, then, it may seem a little strange that the two young men never met throughout Breaking Bad's entire run.

Earth has been obliterated, forcing mankind to the extrasolar planet Kepler-22b, where humans continue to make a mess of things anyway. Here, androids which have been designated Father and Mother are tasked with raising human children.

Sonequa Martin-Green, who portrayed Sasha Williams for four seasons of the show, is one such actress.

But it's also, as you might imagine from its title, about a secret — one that will forever change the way you view the Doctor's regeneration.

It's likely for the best, too. As The Boys continues to play out, it is becoming obvious that Butcher needs to be single for a while.

The most interesting of these comes from @kopite7kimi, who was pretty accurate with some of the specifications of the other Ampere cards. So this is possibly worth paying a bit more attention to than some of the others.

In the post, Bungie announced the return of pursuit weapons—special, curated guns that are earned through a (usually lengthy) quest that involves playing through either Strikes, Crucible or Gambit.A quick history of Destiny 2 'pursuit' loot: in Year 2, it came in the form of pinnacle weapons, which had unique perks that made for some of the strongest guns in the game. Mountaintop, Recluse, Revoker, 21% Delirium, Wendigo GL3 and Loaded Question are all things I still regularly use, because they're still arguably the best weapons in their particular class.In Year 3, pursuits were downgraded to ritual weapons, which offered curated rolls pulled from the existing perk pool. They were mostly underwhelming, and eventually stopped being offered. Where previously each season contained a pinnacle/ritual weapon for each of the three core activities, Season of the Worthy featured just a single ritual weapon tied to Iron Banner. Season of Arrivals has no ritual weapon at all.For Year 4, rituals are back, but again it seems we'll be getting just one per season. This time, though, players will have a choice of how they acquire this loot. Players can choose whether to accept a Strike, Crucible or Gambit quest for the gun itself, and will get an additional ornament quest for each to alter its look.

Yes, there are actually new Gateway PCs on the market, wrapped in cow-spotted packaging like the old days (as in, two decades ago). And they are only available at Walmart.Some of you reading this might not remember Gateway, serving as a sobering reminder that I'm getting old. Gateway predates The Simpsons by several years, coming into existence in 1985 and maintaining a significant presence in the PC market through the 1990s, and early 2000s. Then the hard times hit, and in 2007 Acer snatched up Gateway for $710 million.The Gateway brand never entirely disappeared, but its presence was certainly diminished, and I imagine largely forgotten by many. Be that as it may, Acer is looking to leverage the brand with a new lineup of laptops, 2-in-1 systems, and even a couple of tablets.

It's possible the vendor ran out of preorder inventory (the 3080 is anticipated to be in high demand, as well as the 3070), or it could have jumped the gun on accepting orders.Original story:The wait is on for new Nvidia Ampere cards to land on retail shelves, starting with the 'flagship' GeForce RTX 3080. That GPU gets released next Thursday, September 17, but if you want to order one right now, however, you can.I have found exactly two models that are available to preorder, both at B&H Photo, and both from from Asus and its TUF Gaming line.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Baldur's Gate 3 will be all about choice, and if it lives up to its immense promise, it will be these many, game-changing decisions that'll keep players locked into the Forgotten Realms for many years. So naturally, Larian is going big on it: Baldur's Gate 3 will let players make and suggest dialogue choices to their favourite streamers.In Larian's latest community update the developer revealed Crowd Choice for Stadia and Twitch integration, which will both allow viewers to affect a streamer's next dialogue choice. Crowd Choice will let you actively choose the next story path remotely during a YouTube livestream, whereas each dialogue option is assigned a number on Twitch, which is then subject to a vote. Presumably the streamer can then decide whether to abide or ignore their audience's wishes. Twitch viewers can also view the streamer's inventory, character sheet, skills, and spells.Larian explains in the update that these features are all about bringing the community together, allowing the streamer to become the dungeon master for their audience, whether they own the game or not. Or they can just disable the feature completely, if they'd prefer. Of course, audiences interacting with a streamer's game is nothing new. A recent example is Borderlands 3's ECHOcast extension, which allows viewers to check out a player's inventory, skill trees, and character build. You could also buy them an in-game drink that bestowed various buffs. That said, it'll be fascinating to see it in action in a game as deep as Baldur's Gate 3. With a script running at over 1.5 million words, two games can hardly play the same way.In the same update, Larian also explained the role of cinematic dialogue, which will use "bespoke adaptive cameras" to add drama and depth. It's often awkward when you're in a co-op group and you're waiting for the party leader to get their quest from the relevant NPC, and Larian's system seems to be a way of making this more natural and seamless, but also to play with the concept. How it works is, if you're in a chat with an NPC, one of your party has the option of joining in—it sounds a bit like your companions interjecting in The Outer Worlds, but controlled by actual humans. Here, they can also suggest what dialogue choices you should make, but they can also just roam around, pickpocket you, or just set fire to things. Perhaps pick your least annoying friends for this one.Despite the ambitiousness of both features, Larian is still aiming for them to be active for Baldur's Gate 3's Early Access launch on September 30. Both are full of potential for emergent, enthralling stories, and you can find out more in Larian sixth developer video update above.Thanks, VG247.

I'm not sure what happened after that, but what didn't happen is the launch of the game. It did launch on the Nintendo Switch back in March, though, and today Sega recommitted to upcoming launches on Steam and GOG.

This "Ship Showdown," as it's called, is actually an annual event that will see community voting on the best ship continue through brackets, until the best of the best is crowned. I'm not sure if there's any point to it beyond bragging rights, but if you're impressed with what you see and want to commit, discounts on starter ship packs are also being offered throughout.The latest Free Fly trial period is open to all new players, and is set to run until September 23.

In a tweet, Supergiant explained that the feature was originally promised to be ready at launch but the developer hit some unexpected snags. "Rather than postpone our v1.0 launch plans until the feature is complete, we're going to introduce cross-saves in an update later this year, after Hades v1.0 launches this fall," Supergiant said.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Remember WarGames, the mid-'80s Matthew Broderick movie about a kid who hacks into the US military's supercomputer and almost touches off World War 3 because he thinks he's playing a videogame? Commander 85 looks a lot like that, but streaked with a few decades of nostalgia rather than the very real fear that young whippersnappers and their newfangled gadgets would be the death of us all.The game is a "sci-fi thriller" about a kid who gets the hottest new computer of 1985 for his birthday—a Commander 85—which comes equipped with a proprietary, Eliza-like AI interface. (Eliza was a faux-AI developed in the 1960s and popularized as a tech demo "game" on early home computers.) But instead of accidentally ringing up CENTCOM, you, your friends, and a "crazy scientist" will embark upon a quest to discover the secret of the Commander series of home computers, uncover the truth behind the Roswell incident, and end the Cold War. No pressure.Commander 85 looks like it will lean heavily into Eliza-style gameplay, but with an underlying story rather than simple back-and-forth chat between computer and user. Plot points are randomly generated to keep things interesting through multiple playthroughs, and there will be various tasks and side quests to take on, some optional and others not—if you don't do your chores, for instance, your parents may ground you from the computer.It's the kind of thing I really can't put my finger on. I dig the "WarGames meets Stranger Things" setup, but I'm not sure that randomizing story elements is the best way to tell a good one; I love the 80s, but too many on-the-nose references, like that "House Alone" poster on the wall, can become a distraction. But the teaser really rings my bell, and I won't lie, the YouTube description hooked me:"Now you can play games all day long with buddies! Bad news —Your mom won't allow this. Nuclear War might be an issue as well. What do you have to do to be able to play on the computer?"How can you not be curious about that? Commander 85 will launch on Steam on September 30, and while you wait there's a Discord server you can jump into here.

At the time it was set to be out later this year, but developer Ember Lab said today that working from home because of the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed development more than it had hoped."For this reason, we have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Kena: Bridge of Spirits to Q1, 2021," the studio said. "We have not made this decision lightly, but feel it is best for the game and well-being of the team. We will use this time to give the game the polish it deserves and deliver an experience that meets our vision and your expectations."

It's an historical, human, and very cute experience. A Monster's Expedition is the latest from puzzle game designer Draknek and collaborators, billed here as Draknek & Friends. Draknek is behind some of the better puzzle games of the past decade, like Cosmic Express and hit indie puzzler Sokobond. A Monster's Expedition is adorable, and quite funny, but it's the simple joy of the puzzles and explorable world that make it good. It's rare to actually call a game that can challenge your brain relaxing, but this is one of them. If a puzzle is too hard, you can generally just go solve a puzzle somewhere else in the open world. It's also simple-enough for anyone to play—mostly just pushing things around.

It's a continuation of the same story from the first game, kind of, with the kind of odd cross-dimensional storyline you've probably come to expect from games like this. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2, the second in the most unexpectedly good series mashup of the past few years, is coming to Steam early next year. Also the trailer has the creator of Tetris, Alexey Pajitnov, in a very COVID-era-specific webcam video, who apparently endorses the series crossover. Strange times. Tetris is Tetris as usual, but if you don't know, Puyo Puyo is a bit like Tetris but colors have to match to clear blocks. Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 will let you mix the two games or play them separately.

It's on Steam as Death Rally (Classic), and it's a somewhat-fondly-remembered top-down death racing game. Boasting "over 20 megs of action-packed animation," in Death Rally you throw bullets down the track at opponents and dodge the ones thrown back at you. It's a noteworthy game because it has a pretty early example of a real progression system—climbing the ladder allows you to get new cars with their own weapons or upgrade your current one.Remedy is perhaps better known as the developers of Max Payne, Alan Wake, and Control. They developed a pretty poorly received revival of Death Rally in 2012.

In advance of that, Croteam have put its system requirements out into the world and they're surprisingly a bit hefty on the recommended side, calling for an 8-core CPU and a better graphics cards than even Microsoft Flight Simulator suggested.It's not a game we're expecting to look as pretty as, say, Crysis Remastered, but it is apparently going to have "hundreds of thousands" of enemies on screen at once thanks to its Legion System, which will obviously have an impact. Here are the minimum and recommended specs, via the Serious Sam 4 Steam page.

No, in Atomicrops you inherit your dead uncle's farm. It's completely different! Actually, what makes it different is that as soon as you inherit that farm a nuclear war starts and you have to defend your farm from mutants every night, working your way through seasonal bosses until you make it to Nuclear Winter. Or die trying and start again.It left early access on May 28, but was exclusive to the Epic Games Store. That exclusivity ends soon, and it'll be launching on Steam and GOG on September 17. To celebrate the occasion, developers Bird Bath Games are updating Atomicrops to add a variety of new guns, upgrades, characters, and a tunneler tractor that can tunnel back to your farm. The Steam version is also getting leaderboards and daily challenges.When our Chris Livingston played Atomicrops in early access, he arrived at the conclusion that, "Personally, I'm not sure I'm cut out for farming in the post-apocalypse—there's far more shooting than gardening in Atomicrops, and I prefer a farm where the only danger is tipping over my tractor. But Atomicrops is fun and wonderfully animated, especially the various vegetables you grow, which have faces (or at least eyes) and they all jump and wiggle around excitedly in the irradiated soil when it's time for you to harvest them."

The SoftBank Group, a Japanese holding company, only recently bought Arm themselves, paying $32 billion in in 2016. Nvidia will apparently cover part of the transaction with their own shares.While Nvidia, who the Financial Times points out "recently overtook Intel to become the world's most valuable chipmaker", tends to focus on high-end chips of the kind favored by PC gamers, Arm currently have market dominance in the fields of mobile, tablet, and smart TV chips.Nvidia recently acquired data storage and management platform Swiftstack, and Mellanox Technologies, a supplier of InfiniBand and Ethernet networking products.According to the Financial Times, the deal will may be announced on Monday.

There are plenty of things you could do with that, but one I did not expect to see was WoW being transformed into a flight sim with a South Park aesthetic. But that's what Redditor Fumbleturkey did, demonstrating it with a video titled "I can't afford Microsoft's delicious Flight Simulator" that shows them taking off from the Borean Tundra flight path, then landing and casting some spells which are animated as kicks and flipping the bird.Fumbleturkey previously showed what WeakAuras can do by putting WoW in first-person mode while riding a horse and murdering a proudhorn. And most recently, followed their budget WoW version of Microsoft Flight Simulator with a similar take on Farming Simulator.As every single person on Reddit has pointed out already, yes, Microsoft Flight Simulator is available quite cheap on Game Pass. The video is still funny.

Originally due out in 2018, it was pushed to 2019, then 2020 and now the vague future. But it's still happening, apparently, with a "new vision" that we'll have to wait until next year to hear about. Creative Director Elisabeth Pellen shared the not-really-an-update in a blog post today, offering few details while attempting to clarify why it's been postponed (a few times) in the last few years. "We dreamt something bigger for Skull & Bones, and these ambitions naturally came with bigger challenges," she says. "These difficulties resulted in necessary delays for our game. Critical questions needed to be addressed over the past several months such as: how do we modernize the classic pirate fantasy? How do we ensure a more immersive and visceral experience? How do we create cool and memorable moments in-game? For most of these questions to be answered, it was clear that we needed more development time."It's not clear what this big new vision for the pirate game actually is yet, unfortunately. In July, it was rumoured to have changed from the usual Ubisoft open-world formula to a live service game, apparently with a living story, community elements and world events triggered by players. Sounds familiar. Skull & Bones will be skipping today's Ubisoft Forward, like it's skipped everything for the last couple of years, so don't expect new details soon. It will apparently be finally reappearing next year, but we don't know when, and giving its penchant for missing dates, I wouldn't hold my breath either.

This could be a result of beta feedback. The closed beta kicked off in July for anyone who preordered the game. Kalypso Media and Realmforge Studios haven't mentioned any specifics, just that it needs more polish and won't be appearing until spring next year. "The new release date will allow for more development time to further polish the game," the update reads, "ensuring that it reaches the highest quality level possible and meets the high expectations of fans and beta testers. In addition, the delay means that the game can launch in more territories and on more platforms from day one." I liked what I saw a hands-off demo at Gamescom last year, though I was surprised just how closely it stuck to the original Startopia, which Kalypso doesn't actually have the rights to—this is an unofficial spiritual successor, despite everything, including the name, being almost identical. Given the dearth of space station sims and my love of Startopia, however, I'm OK with Spacebase Startopia not fiddling with the formula too much. I think. It has been a wee while since I played its inspiration. I guess I'll find out if it still holds up next year.

This time, it's for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake, the existence of which had already leaked, but now we've got some slightly goofy screenshots. The leak comes from the Russian Uplay store, which started advertising the remake with some banners a little bit early (cheers, ResetEra). Check them out below.

At least a little bit further, apparently—Crucial just earned itself some bragging rights by launching the Ballistix Max 5100, the fastest available RAM on the market.It is only offered as a 16GB kit (2x8GB), and in limited edition quantities to boot. Crucial did not say exactly how many kits it is producing, only that it is a limited run and up for grabs while supplies last.As the model name suggests, this is a DDR4-5100 memory kit, meaning it is rated to hit 5,100 megatransfers per second (MT/s). This metric is often used interchangeably with frequency speeds (MHz and GHz), even though technically they are not the same thing.That said, this is the same kit that was used to set a memory frequency record last month, at 6,666.6MHz. Overclocker "Bianbo" achieved the feat in an AMD Ryzen PC, using an Asus ROG Strix B550-I Gaming motherboard, and the record still stands at HWBot.

One of the notable additions to today's update is Ansel, Nvidia's screen capturing tool the enables capturing professional-looking shots."Ansel is the newest feature to join GeForce Now´s growing collection of content creation tools. We´re thrilled to put these tools in our members´ hands for our PC and macOS apps, and we can´t wait to see what they share on social media using #GFNShare," Nvidia says.Taking a screenshot by hitting the 'print screen' key is still an option, of course, but it is rudimentary in comparison to Ansel. Using Nvidia's photo grabbing tool, you can freeze your game and move the camera around for the best angle and shot, add post-processing filters, take super resolution and HDR photos, and even capture images in raw mode (OpenEXR format).As for the list of new and returning games to GeForce Now, they include:

We have taken significant steps to remove or sanction those who violated our values and code of conduct, and we are working hard to improve our systems and processes," Guillemot said. "We are also focused on improving diversity and inclusivity at all levels of the company. For example, we will invest $1 million over the nest five years in our graduate program. The focus will be on creating opportunities for under-represented groups, including women and people of color."Guillemot also apologized for using the "raised fist" symbol (a symbol of revolution, and of the Black Power movement) to represent the villainous revolutionary group Umbra in the mobile game Tom Clancy's Elite Squad. As we explained in August, the game's premise—that protests are a front for an evil international conspiracy—sounds like a conspiracy theorist's attack on the Black Lives Matter movement."This kind of oversight cannot happen," Guillemot said. "We are putting into place safeguards to prevent it in the future. We condemn anyone using our games as a proxy for hate or toxicity. We fully support the Black Lives Matter movement, and today we are making an additional donation tot the NAACP Legal Defense Fund."Ubisoft has come under an ugly spotlight in recent months, which have seen several executives including former chief creative officer Serge Hascoët and Assassin's Creed Valhalla creative director Ashraf Ismail step down or be fired as a result of widespread sexual misconduct and abuse at the company. Despite being at the top of Ubisoft through all of it, Guillemot, who has previously placed the blame for abuses on employees who "betrayed his trust," made it clear that he has no intention of stepping down as CEO."I am fully committed to leading the change at Ubisoft, and to ensuring we always uphold and exemplify our core values, in the company, the industry, the community, and in our games," he said. The timing of Guillemot's video led to criticism on social media from people who felt the company was trying to sneak the message out ahead of today's online show. In response, Ubisoft tweeted a statement saying that "timing constraints" kept it from being included with the event (which sounds like an awfully dodgy excuse to me, it's not as though they just found out about all of this last night), but promised that it will be included in VOD releases.

Despite pre-release hype and the presence of tantric sex guy Sting, its launch was "a disaster," according to lead developer Johnnemann Nordhagen, who said that it sold fewer copies than he had Twitter followers—"and I don't have a lot of Twitter followers."Reviews were spotty too, although it has a "very positive" user rating on Steam—and also, according to Steam Charts, peak concurrent player counts that are almost exclusively in the low double digits, so you can see the problem. Starting today, though, it may have a second shot at life (or at least a chance to become one of those "overlooked cult classics"), as it's now free for the week on the Epic Games Store.The giveaway isn't going to undo the launch flop, but resurgent interest could help spur future sales, or at the very least put to rest Nordhagen's doubts about whether "games like this one can continue to be made in the current market." (Or, I suppose, reinforce them, if things go badly.

The PlayStation 2-era game is being totally rebuilt in Assassin's Creed's Anvil game engine, which is a little ironic, given that Assassin's Creed started as a prototype for a new Prince of Persia. "It's the circle of life," said senior producer Annu Koul in an interview with PC Gamer last week. Koul works at Ubisoft Mumbai, which is building The Sands of Time Remake in tandem with Ubisoft Pune, where game director Pierre-Sylvain Gires is based.On top of a general graphical redo—although the remake still has a decidedly 2003 look to it—the character animations from the original Sands of Time have been reenacted with motion capture. "We decided to leverage motion capture, first of all, to enhance the cinematic parts with facial capture, to bring more emotion to them," said Gires.

Above you can see our hero battling various creatures inspired by Greek mythology, including giants, griffins, and one very angry medusa.There's a definite Breath of the Wild energy to it, which is fantastic news for those who enjoyed BotW and for those (like me) who never played it because we don't own a Switch or a Wii U.When you're done with the trailer, you can check out a second video shown at Ubisoft Forward that goes a bit deeper into the world, story, and gameplay of Immortals Fenyx Rising. It launches on PC on the Epic Store and Uplay on December 3.

It was delisted from digital stores back in 2014, after a teased online multiplayer patch never materialized. But as proof that good things can happen in 2020, Ubisoft's finally re-releasing the game at the end of this year, remastered and bundled with its old DLC.What made Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game so beloved? Many things. There's the wonderfully fluid pixel art from Paul Robertson, the soundtrack by Anamanaguchi, and the combat system inspired by classic brawler River City Ransom, with unlockable skills and combos for each character. It's just a damn good time, and the Scott Pilgrim comic and movie the game pulls from are pretty great, too.It was a shame this game wasn't playable for so long; even Scott Pilgrim writer Bryan Lee O'Malley tried to push for the game to be brought back. As of a month ago, Ubisoft was still staying silent, but based on today's announcement it seems like the re-release must've already been in the works.

After the trailer, though, we did get a surprise: Aiden Pearce, the lead character of the original Watch Dogs, will be added to Legion in a post-launch update.The Watch Dogs Legion season pass, as listed on the Ubisoft support site, will include a new story expansion, four unique heroes, bonus Deadsec missions and a Deadsec car skin, and the original Aiden Pearce experience, Watch Dogs Complete Edition. How exactly he'll fit into the Legions package isn't clear at this point, as live producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan said only that he'll be added to the game at some point after release."You asked, and he's back," Thillainathan said. "Older, but not necessarily wiser, Aiden Pearce will be a fully playable character in Watch Dogs Legion as part of our post-launch plans."The reaction to Pearce's presence appears to be mixed at this point. Some people responding to the announcement on Twitter are clearly enthusiastic, but others are put off by the character's murderous impulses and complete lack of personality. You can get a little taste of his style in the video: It's funny when a granny spy kicks a minimum wage security guard in the junk, but when Pearce has a guy on his knees and then straight-up executes him with a gunshot to the back of his skull, are we still supposed to laugh?

"I'm honored to be a part of it," said the rapper, setting up a motion-captured music video set in virtual London. You can watch it all in the video above.According to creative director Clint Hocking, Watch Dogs Legion's themes are "speaking up for the oppressed and holding those in power accountable," which is why Stormzy's name came up "over and over again" among Londoners involved with the game.As one example of what Hocking's referencing, Stormzy called out Theresa May and company over the UK government's response to the Grenfell Tower fire, in which 72 people died, at the 2018 Brit Awards: "You should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, we should burn your house down and see if you can manage this," he rapped.Watch Dogs 2 was about a group of hackers battling a San Francisco tech giant bent on world domination. In Legion, the same group is taking on a private military that has taken over London and turned it into a surveillance state on the government's orders. Whether the game has anything noteworthy to say about oppression remains to be seen, and it's slightly hard to take Hocking at his word given that Ubisoft just apologized for a mobile game which presented modern-day protests as fronts for an evil conspiracy. Though Ubisoft is a big company, to be fair.At the very least, Legion looks fun—Chris enjoyed his hands-on session back in July. And beyond the virtual music video, Stormzy's appearance is apparently part of a full mission in the game. It's unclear exactly what that'll look like, but it wasn't presented as an add-on or something extra, so it should be in every version. Ubisoft also didn't say whether or not Stormzy will be a playable character. I'd guess not, but the game's hook is that you get to play as just about anyone in London, so it's not entirely outside the realm of possibility.Watch Dogs Legion will be out on October 29. Here's everything else we know about it.

Skis, snowboards, bikes, wingsuits—even rocket-powered wingsuits—are on display in this open-world playground. Check out a preview trailer above. Pretty radical! Do people still say radical?It looks quite a bit like 2016's Steep (and is being developed by the same studio, Ubisoft Annecy), in that there's a big open world to both explore and race through, either alone or with friends and strangers—though Riders Republic has a much more goofy and colorful vibe. Spectacular wipeouts seem to be just as much of a draw as coming in first.The world of Riders Republic is a mash-up of United States national parks, like Bryce Canyon, Yosemite, Mammoth Mountain, and more. As you level up through career mode you'll unlock new gear and costumes, and there will be social hubs where you can show off your duds and join up with "more than 50 players simultaneously."Riders Republic will launch on PC on the Epic Games Store and Uplay next year on February 25.

The closest it ever came to PC was as a touching reference in Giant Sparrow's next game, the wonderful, haunting What Remains of Edith Finch, although yes, it was also playable through the PS Now service. But now it's here for real: With no fanfare, or advance notice of any sort that I'm aware of, publisher Annapurna Interactive dropped the game on Steam and the Epic Games Store today.The game tells the story of a ten-year-old orphan named Monroe and a swan who steps out of an unfinished painting and into a "surreal, storybook-inspired kingdom." Monroe pursues the swan through multiple chapters, each promising "surprises, new ways to explore the world, a host of bizarre (and sometimes dangerous) creatures, and encounters with the eccentric king who built this empire."Fans of The Unfinished Swan quickly noticed multiple references to the game in Edith Finch, and Giant Sparrow confirmed certain theories about one of the Finch family members in a 2017 AMA on Reddit—and in case there's any question, it's a narrative spoiler, so I will say no more about it. I will say, though, that based on what I know from Edith Finch, I fully expect that Unfinished Swan will make me cry like a baby at some point. Why do I do this to myself?The Unfinished Swan is available for ten percent off its regular $15 price until September 24.

High refresh rates and deep colors let you see the work your graphics card is putting in, and right now you can get both with one of Gigabyte's gaming monitors, which is on sale for a reasonable $332.99 on Newegg. Best of all, its variable refresh rate works with both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.The Gigabyte G32QC is a 32-inch curved 1440p gaming monitor with a maximum refresh rate of 165Hz. It's certified for AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, which means it's tear-free with minimum flicker when paired with an AMD graphics card. The monitor is also approved by Nvidia as G-Sync Compatible, so it also works well with a GeForce graphics card. The compatibility is absolutely great to have, especially with new cards from both Nvidia and AMD on the horizon—you won't be tied to one brand just because of your monitor.The display uses a Vertically Aligned (VA) panel, which is an upgrade from the cheaper Twisted Nematic (TN) screens commonly found on low-end gaming monitors, but won't offer quite as good viewing angles and colors as high-end In-Plane-Switching (IPS) displays. Granted, the curved design of this specific model makes viewing angles less relevant, and the monitor's HDR400 support improves color accuracy slightly. Check out our guide to monitor technology for more information on the differences between each display type.

Shortly after ballooning to that ridiculous size, we sent forth a plaintive plea: Make game smaller, please. Surprisingly, one studio heard our calls, and replied, "Yeah, we can do that."I can't actually claim that Digital Extremes was responding to us, or is even aware of our thoughts on the matter, but in an update called The Great Ensmallening, it explained that it's moving to a new kind of compression technology in Warframe that will enable it to shave more than 6GB off of the game's install size. That figure is probably going to hit at least 15GB by the time everything is done. That's a very significant cut, given that the system requirements indicate that it requires 50GB of free space (on a current Steam install, Warframe takes up 40.2GB)."Although it isn´t a perfect analogy it´s similar to the trade-off between image-quality and file-size you get with different image formats: PNG is lossless but can mean very large files, JPEG files can be very small but may contain visible artifacts of the compression," the studio explained in the post. "The technology we´re using is called Oodle Texture and we´re extremely pleased with the savings we´re getting: our files are roughly half the size on disk and the visual differences are negligible."The bad news is that Warframe players are going to have to download remastered content to make the magic happen: In order to gain the promised 6.6GB savings, you'll need to eat a 6.5GB update. In order to minimize the hassle, Digital Extremes has broken the updated content into three parts that will be spread out over the balance of the year.The first update will overhaul Warframe's lightmaps: "We spent a lot of time carefully analyzing the quality of the results and we doubt anyone will even notice anywhere but the harshest of tests," the studio said, adding that it can "easily tweak where needed" with this new system. "The game can default to the compact and fast format and we can increase resolution to preserve the quality of special assets (like that shelf in your quarters)."It also posted a couple of before-and-after images, for those who would dare to compare:Before

There are four main modes—Time Trial and Grand Prix are self-explanatory, but there's also Cops and Robbers and Drive or Explode. The former has cops chasing robbers, and robbers evading cops, while the latter is a bit like Speed: if you fall below a certain speed your car will explode. There are different playable characters you can inhabit, which I suppose plays into the Grand Prix campaign. But there's all the online features you'd expect too: all modes support eight players online, there are leaderboards, and four-player local split-screen is also available.Hotshot Racing is out now on Steam with a launch discount of 20 percent ($15.99 / £12.79 / AU$23.16).

Today, it appeared out of the blue on both Steam and Game Pass. Which is nice.Originally released for the PlayStation 3 in 2011, Disgaea 4 is about a vampire leading a rebellion against the President of the Netherworld. But what it's really about is watching numbers go up, as you unlock its collection of over 30 characters and march toward level 9,999.The PC version of Disgaea 4 launches without the original's online features, which included the ability to hop on a flying pirate ship to invade other players' games. They're coming at some point, however, with a developer on the Steam forum promising to keep everyone updated on that front.Presumably this is a different situation to the PC port of Disgaea 5, which had to leave out its online features completely due to "irreconcilable platform differences".All of the Disgaea games are currently on sale on Steam, with the first and second both reduced by 80%.
