  • 4A Games has said previously that Metro Exodus will be more open than the previous games in the Metro series, but it won’t be a completely open world like that of Stalker. For one thing, individual levels in Exodus will be much larger than anything seen in the previous games. The biggest outdoor level in Last Light was roughly “200 meters to 100 meters,” Prokhorov said,. That means everything from weapons, attachments, and other loot, to “frozen stories” that reveal more about the game world and
    Metro Exodus is bigger than 2033 and Last Light combined

  • Devil May Cry 5 is real, it stars Nero, and it’s coming in spring 2019. Don’t worry, the teaser ended with a quick appearance from original Devil May Cry protagonist Dante as well. But still, nice of Microsoft to give Nero and friends a great big stage to do their debut on, right? Oh, and one last thing: despite the fact that Microsoft now owns Ninja Theory, which developed DmC: Devil May Cry, Devil May Cry 5 is being built internally at Capcom. We’ll just have to wait and see what Ninja Theory

  • Toys R Us’ status as the most important toy store in town left it cavalier, if cocky at times, according to conversations with former employees, executives and industry insiders, who spoke to CNBC on the condition of anonymity. The story begins with Lazarus, the store’s visionary who wanted the “R” written backward — an ode to childlike scrawl. Lazarus, who has been described as one of the great merchants of his time, expanded a baby furniture store he owned into a toy store. In its heyday in th
    Toys R Us built a kingdom and the world's biggest toy store. Then, they lost it.

  • The impending decision from the EU watchdog has come to pass: Google has been fined a record €4.3 billion ($5.1 billion) for abusing the Android operating system’s dominance in the smartphone market, the largest fine imposed on a company in EU history. Google was previously penalized by the European Commission just last year, when the search giant was slapped with a $2.7 billion fine for lowering the ranking of competitor shopping comparison tools to promote its own.

  • According to an ABC News report from 2010, homeless dogs in Moscow have figured out how to use the city’s labyrinthine subway system. Thankfully, there’s now a video game about the plight of Russia’s subway dogs, and it’s called Russian Subway Dogs. The trailer above serves as a mini-documentary outlining the plight of Russian subway dogs, while also providing a taster for what the game actually is. But if you must know, it’s an arcade game where you’ll be dodging lobbed bottles of vodka (incisi

  • Does the best gaming snack need to be crumb and grease-free, or should nothing be sacrificed in the pursuit of flavor? Those questions and more are addressed in today’s PCG Q&A: What is the absolute best gaming snack? The secret to a good gaming snack is cleanliness. The best snack to eat while gaming is your favorite snack, keyboards and squadmates be damned. For me, that means the original nacho cheese Doritos, though I’m good with just about any corn chip dipped in salsa.

  • Most notably, Ubi is not happy with one of the most popular operators in the game: Thatcher. Typically, the EMP is a surefire way to permanently disable any electronic on the defender side. In response, game designer Jean-Baptiste Hallé said that this is because the team isn’t satisfied with the way Thatcher is played right now. In general, we are not satisfied with the interaction of the EMP and electronic gadgets when this interaction is a simple destruction. By “too binary,” Hallé refers to a

  • But we’re still lacking in platform fighters like Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros., though Smash Bros. itself can of course be played on an emulator. DimensionsVS , an upcoming free-to-play fighting game unashamedly styled after Smash, wants to fill that space. One notable difference from Smash is the way DimensionsVS handles damage: dealing damage lowers opponent’s health from a starting 200. According to developer TeePee Studios, this is part of the reason DimensionsVS will enter Steam Early Acces

  • Frantically searching for a way to save the stuck Chappadoodle, Muselk remembers the curiously parked golf cart he saw at the canyon’s edge. His hope rekindled, Muselk carefully edges the golf cart over to the edge……but not carefully enough. Summoning every ounce of energy left in him, Chappadoodle positions himself between the tumbling golf cart and the cold, cruel ocean behind him. He means to stop the golf cart with his very flesh. Without hesitation I put myself in between the golf cart an

  • The trailer for No Man’s Sky Next arrived yesterday, and feel free to give it another viewing above before reading on because there’s a lot to take in. So, near the end of the trailer there’s a cool sight: one player and three big stompy robots. Portal palsIt’s not clear how you’ll be able to link up with your friends in the vast expanse of No Man’s Sky.

  • Next year, Samsung hopes you’ll spend thousands of dollars on its new, cutting-edge foldable phone. Samsung’s Galaxy X smartphone, codenamed “Winner”, is a fully bendable and foldable device that, when flat, will be the size of a small tablet, the Wall Street Journal reports. A foldable smartphone revolution? Right now, only one foldable smartphone is on the market: the ZTE Axon M , which has a hinge, but not a bendable display. The latest rumors suggest Huawei will showcase its still-unnamed fl

  • Now, in what may be a sign that Japan’s PC audience is growing, Square Enix is taking a first step: releasing a game on Steam exclusively in Japanese, without it being region-locked to Japan. SaGa Scarlet Grace is launching on Steam on August 1st, side-by-side with its console versions. As pointed out by Resetera , this is a new move for Square Enix, and SaGa Scarlet Grace is probably a good game to test the waters with. The SaGa series is infamously complex, borderline impenetrable, and several

  • The Apple HomeKit smart home ecosystem can incorporate a wide selection of smart devices, from light switches to outlets, climate control to smart speakers. But one device HomeKit can’t work with, apparently, is a smart doorbell. On Apple’s HomeKit accessories page , you can find a list of supported devices under categories such as Lights or Locks. Ring and August , two smart security companies that make smart doorbells, promised back in 2016 that they would add HomeKit support to their devices.

  • If you turn on Netflix tonight and you notice that the interface looks like Google Play Movies & TV, don’t worry, you aren’t in an episode of Black Mirror or, worse, mistakenly entered the world of the Upside Down – Netflix has gotten a face lift. The change in the user interface is part of a small update coming to all Netflix apps on TV platforms. If the former looks familiar, it’s because it’s a similar layout to other streaming services including the old Amazon Fire TV UI and Google Play Movi

  • According to Steam, I have sunk 114 hours into Divinity: Original Sin Enhanced Edition, on top of 61 hours spent in the “Classic” edition. A lot of that is probably AFK time but there is no doubt that I strolled slowly and stopped to smell the roses. Divinity: Original Sin 2 speedrunner AlmostPi, on the other hand, did not. The new record for speedrunning Divinity: Original Sin 2 is 24 mins 58 seconds. You can watch that run in all its glory (and in less time than it takes me to create a single

  • Fallout: New California is a Fallout: New Vegas mega-mod that introduces a totally new storyline complete with 12 possible endings and some 16,000 lines of voiced dialogue. “They have every legal right to [send a cease and desist order] without hesitation,” the Facebook post reads. Of course, those plans may be altered further if Bethesda or Fantasy Flight Games does go after the mod. Even so, it’s possible the Fallout: New California mod will have to change its name as well. I’ve reached out to
