Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds deploys spike traps and starts loot box changes

Update 5.2 hit Playerunknown's Battlegrounds today, adding spike traps we can throw down to puncture tyres and overhauling a fair bit of the snowy map Vikendi. I can't imagine I'll often intelligently use a spike trap in an ambush, but you can be sure I'll throw down every last one I see, just in the hope of ruining someone's day. Probably my own when I…

From today through Monday the 25th, Hibana and Vigil are joining up with the crew of Netflix's Money Heist for some crimson crime capers in Siege's first crossover outside of loaning characters to other Ubisoft games. There's no need…

Ooh look, a new edition of that zine about AI-generated art and dinosaurs

I'm a big fan of people who spend their time prodding AI into doing weird, interesting, and possibly even useful things. Seeds is an annual zine talking about just that, either in theory or practice. It's a companion to Procjam, a low-pressure, week-long event where participants "make something that makes something". Many of the submissions relate to what people got up to at Procjam, but…

Oculus Link beta now lets you play Rift games on your Oculus Quest, but only if you’ve got an Nvidia GPU

The Oculus Quest just got a little bit better. Well, for some people at least. As of November 18, Oculus' Link software is now in beta, meaning Quest owners can now play PC-based Rift games using their portable headset. There are, however, some pretty big catches, like the fact you need an Nvidia-based gaming PC in order for it to work because it currently doesn't…

Destiny 2 begins the Vex Offensive’s Final Assault

After a six-week Blue Peter appeal asking heroes to send in any Vex parts they might have kicked off time-travelling robots, Destiny 2 has finished building a gadget to begin the Final Assault of the Vex Offensive. It's a very Guardian-y plan to stop a foe who exists in myriad timelines: just keep killing them until you've got them all. The reality is a little…

We Happy Few comes crashing down in final expansion, We All Fall Down

You can only keep a population subdued by state-enforced drugs and totalitarian policing for so long. 60s Brit-hell adventure We Happy Few received its third and final story DLC today, We All Fall Down, and it's tearing the whole cheery facade down. Everything's quite on fire, and new heroine Victoria brings a little bit of Dishonored to the mix with grappling skills that'd make and…

After 18 years, Shenmue 3 is finally a game you can play right now

It's only gone and come out, hasn't it? Four years after its controversial, record-breaking $6 million Kickstarter campaign, Shenmue 3 is finally a game you can pick up and play. Blimey, it's only been 18 years since the last one. Shenmue's had a rough road to release, full of publisher scandals and delay after delay after delay. But it's finally time to pick up where…

Detroit: Become Human becomes a PC game on December 12th

Quantic Dream have announced a release date of December 12th for the PC edition of Detroit: Become Human, their sci-fi story about sentient androids which clumsily cribs from America's history of racism and the civil rights struggle. This is Quantic's newest game, released on PS4 in May 2018, and the last of their former PlayStation exclusives we were missing after Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two…

Loads of gaming monitors are going cheap right now in these definitely not Black Friday deals

Another day, another sack load of early, but definitely not Black Friday deals, this time on a bunch of gaming monitors. As with yesterday's Samsung SSD deals, it's entirely possible you'll find better savings come next week when Black Friday proper really kicks into gear, but with plenty of all-time low prices on screens from LG, Samsung, MSI and Asus, there are still plenty of…

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s first patch targets slow loading

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 resolution settings not stick will be welcome for folks who…

CS:GO’s new battle pass adds character, but can’t leave loot boxes behind

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive has never been all that interested in world-building. It's an esport: the pro players are the real characters, inhabiting faceless Terrorists and Counter-Terrorists in high stakes matches where every bullet counts. Operation Shattered Web mixes things up, bringing a host of new player skins with CS:GO's first-ever battle pass. Now, you can stride through time-worn battlefields as a gruff n' tough special-force…

Valve confirm Half-Life: Alyx, a VR game being revealed on Thursday

Goodness me, Valve actually are making a new Half-Life game. Following the weekend's leaky rumours of Half-Life: Alyx, Valve have confirmed yup, it actually is real. They actually are making a new Half-Life, and it actually is for VR. They call Half-Life: Alyx "our flagship VR game" but aren't saying much of anything about what it is until an unveiling on Thursday.

The internet could learn a lot from the VR sign language community

I love the smell of technology bringing people together in the morning. Not in that hollow, Zuckerberguian sense: I'm talking about VR communities where deaf and hearing people hang out and learn VR-adapted sign language. The tech isn't perfect, but it's more than enough to prop up some bridges. You can see them for yourself, thanks to YouTuber and VR documentary maker "Syrmor".

Spacewar! Why a hidden, ancient game keeps showing in Steam’s most-played games

Click here if you have Steam. What's downloading is a true space oddity. Spacewar! was one of the first multiplayer games ever made. It was made before we landed on the moon, in 1962, and it ran on the PDP-1, MIT's supercomputer. It's a space shooter with two ships firing at each other. There's a black hole in the middle, adding some gravitational trouble to…

Dragon Quest Builders 2 brings JRPG block-building to PC next month

Dragon Quest might be over three decades old, but you wouldn't know it looking at Steam. In all that time, only one mainline entry in the cult JRPG series has hit PC. That's not about to change anytime soon. Fortunately, Square Enix have announced that peculiar spin-off Dragon Quest Builders 2 will arrive on PC in just under a month. As a multiplayer, voxel-bashing open-world…
