Nvidia RTX 2070 Super vs 2080 Super: How much faster is Nvidia’s new 4K graphics card?

Nvidia's RTX 2080 Super card is finally here. Offering superior speeds for roughly the same price as the original RTX 2080, the RTX 2080 Super is pretty much the 4K graphics card to beat right now outside of Nvidia's crazy expensive RTX 2080 Ti - especially as it currently has no real competition from the likes of AMD right now, either. In fact, its closest…

Premature Evaluation: Nightmare Reaper

Hey, it’s me. I was gone for a while, but now I’m back. Back to prematurely evaluate some early access games, like an impatient baker wrenching open the door of an oven and plunging his fist into a molten ball of uncooked dough. Like an open heart surgeon dialling down the anaesthesia to wake his patient up while they’re still on the operating table, just…

Teamfight Tactics guide – TFT tips

Teamfight Tactics's first beta pass period ends later today and that's not all that's happening around in TFT.

The Deep End: a Zero Context Final Fantasy Diary – Part I: Prologue

It is the height of summer; a lush July evening, and a Friday to boot, with a free weekend stretched out before me like so much blue sky. I’m planning to spend plenty of the next two days outside, with my wife and daughter, enjoying fresh air, laughter and good food. But there’s a dark pit in this fruit of fun; a bitter kernel which…

Teamfight Tactics items cheat sheet – TFT item recipes

Items are key in auto-battlers like Teamfight Tactics, but TFT's items are unique. They can be combined together give you perks for your champions, with some combinations being utterly ridiculous.

Biotope could have been my dream aquarium simulator

Recently, my eleven month old daughter said her first word. She was pointing into the shimmery blue interior of the new aquarium in our bedroom, and she said “fish”. Unfortunately she was pointing out a shrimp, but hey - it’s the thought that counts. I was elated; much of my life has been consumed by an obsession with watery things, and aquariums in particular, thanks…

Modder Superior: Sven Co-op

Once just a mod enabling you to play the classic FPS with pals, it received Valve's blessings to go free and standalone on Steam in 2016, bundled with a free copy of the original Half-Life re-tooled for multiplayer.…

Good news for anyone looking forward to playing Gears of War 5 later this year, as this weekend's multiplayer tech test has been showing some very promising results in the old graphics card performance department.
