If you asked me how many graphics were in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, my answer would be, “a lot.” If I had to guess, I’d say, like, a hundred? Two hundred? It’s a lot, is the point.
My lengthy first tour of No Man’s Sky was a disappointment. I spent 30 hours skating across the surface of an endless puddle, searching for depths that didn’t exist. I skipped and skimmed until, with great regret, I stopped.
Today gaming notebook makers around the world begin shipping systems decked out with Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060, 1070 and 1080 GPUs, essentially the same Pascal-based graphics hardware introduced for desktop PCs earlier this year. The line, it grows thinner.
No Man’s Sky is still pretty rough on PC, but by opting into the experimental branch on Steam and tweaking a few settings outside the game, I’ve been able to get it running a lot more smoothly. (I have a pretty powerful PC, so your mileage may vary.) The most popular tweaks have been assembled in a helpful post on the …
All this week, PC gamers interested in No Man’s Sky have had to patiently watch PS4 players explore the universe without them. Today, they can finally play the game for themselves. Too bad it’s in such rough shape.
Over the last couple of weeks, my gaming PC has started occasionally freezing up. It usually happens at the most inopportune moment possible, and always without warning.
Nvidia’s new Ansel capture technology went live in Mirror’s Edge Catalyst this week, giving players a new way to explore, capture and share EA’s gleaming city of glass from simple screenshots to full 360 degree virtual reality shots. Every game needs this.
The tensions between the modding community and Bethesda continue to rise this week, with a prominent modder claiming that the developers took heavy inspiration from his Fallout: New Vegas mod without giving him any credit.
Just how much of a pain is it to build your own PC? Is it worth the savings? And do you really need to use thermal paste?
Launching July 19 and priced for mass consumption, Nvidia’s Pascal-powered GTX 1060 promises power comparable to the company’s former flagship GTX 980 and twice the energy-efficiency in virtual reality.

A little bit of P.T. mixed in with The Stanley Parable, Asemblance is a video game experience that totally messed with my head.
Blood and Wine, the latest (and final) DLC pack for The Witcher 3, has an easter egg that I am frankly shocked anyone found at all. The secret is remarkably well-hidden, and not accessible through normal means.

With the GeForce GTX 980 celebrating its second birthday soon, in the world of GPUs that puts it squarely over the hill. To further confirm that notion, we have its successor: the new GeForce GTX 1080 offers 60% more performance at what should eventually be a $50 price premium.
PC gaming continues to bring us ridiculous crossovers, this time mixing a little Street Fighter V with Overwatch.
Sure, everything might be 1000% harder to do when you’re using a potato controller to get around, but still: it’s silly stunts like these that make us love Skyrim players in the first place.
Eschewing the unpopular and largely non-existent practice of releasing new versions of products that are worse than the previous ones, the latest version of Razer’s wafer-thin gaming laptop is better than the ones that came before it. Good call.
