The eyes have it – I can’t get enough of Death Stranding’s immaculate faces

I'm not afraid to say that I have absolutely no idea about what's going on in Death Stranding after a couple of hours with it. Something about a big apocalypse, some strands, a man who has the face of Guillermo Del Toro but not his voice keeps trying to me to kill a baby in a jar, and apparently my mum is the president of…

Feature: Music to our ears

Röki’s music sounds as gorgeous as the game looks

Polygon Treehouse's excellent adventure game Röki is out today, and as you may have seen from my Röki review, I was rather enamoured with it. It's a lovely, heartwarming and beautiful-looking game, but its soundtrack deserves special mention as well. Composed by Aether, Röki's music is full of poignant and exquisite melodies that really drive home the game's folkloric roots and fairytale environment, so I…

Feature: Hidden folks

Röki review

How refreshing it is to have a Scandinavian-inspired story that isn't about detectives in woolly jumpers unearthing all manner of grisly nasties from the crisp white snow. Röki's young heroine Tove does do her fair share of digging in Polygon Treehouse's gorgeous point and click adventure, but instead of dead bodies she's collecting celestial stone discs, strange sophorus flowers, and jars of sticky black goo…

AMD’s Ryzen 4000 CPU series has arrived, sort of

AMD have announced the first batch of processors in their upcoming Ryzen 4000 family of desktop CPUs today, but you're going to have to wait a while before they're available to buy as standalone chips.

Even Death Stranding’s ultrawide resolutions find a way to be weird

Death Stranding has had several lovely upgrades for its PC release, including uncapped frame rates, 4K resolution support and Nvidia's DLSS 2.0 tech. But the one I've been most looking forward to trying out is its 21:9 ultrawide monitor support. After all, Death Stranding is effectively Beautiful Landscape: The Game in addition to being a surprisingly engrossing postman sim, and seeing its huge, expansive vistas…
