Plunkbat’s fantasy LARP mode is real, and it’s some decent daft fun

Turning the edgy murder enthusiasts of Playerunknown's Battlegrounds into daffy LARPers clad in homemade armour of tinfoil, buckets, and bathrobes sounds like an April Fools' joke, and it was - but the devs did still make it. The Fantasy Battle Royale event mode launched yesterday and is around for another six days, so I called up the laaads last night. It's really quite fun! The…

Intel’s 10th Gen Comet Lake H-series laptop CPUs are absolute speed demons

Intel have lifted the lid on their H-series of 10th Gen Comet Lake laptop CPUs today, and gee whiz they're nippy. With top clock speeds reaching all the way up to 5.3GHz in some cases, Intel are quite rightly calling these "the world's fastest mobile processors".

Jedi Academy will fix the “loophole” letting PC players grief new console players

I am both surprised and not at all surprised. Star Wars Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy, a game from the year 2003, has recently been ported to the Nintendo Switch and PS4. That's all well and good but apparently players who've been mastering the blade for 17 years have found a way to worm into console players' multiplayer lobbies. You'll not be shocked to hear…

As well as creating the Unreal Engine, making Fortnite, running their own games store, and publishing games, Epic Games apparently also own a group video chat programme named Houseparty?
