Feature: Now with added Anthem

All the Nvidia RTX ray tracing and DLSS games confirmed so far

With the arrival of the RTX 2060, we now have four [block id="640017" title="Nvidia RTX"] cards that can take advantage of the GPU giant's cool new graphics features, such as their reflection-enhancing ray tracing magic and performance-boosting DLSS tech.

Dauntless is Monster Hunter for people who fear grind

Feature: Hunting monsters like a monster hunter

Hunting the giant monsters of Dauntless

Dauntless [official site] plunges you into the Shattered Isles, a broken, albeit beautiful, fantasy world where hulking Behemoths are hunted by adventurers in a quest for glory and most importantly, excellent loot. It’s a third-person, four player co-op action RPG created by former Bioware and Riot devs. Monster Hunter is a key influence here, as the game’s schtick centers on teaming up with a few…
