  • And then I played more of stylish platformer Shot in the Dark. Yes it is zombies, in the opening area at least, but it doesn’t take long for the enemy design to become more and more inventive. Luckily, you’re a dab hand with a revolver, which you use by aiming with the mouse and clicking to fire. As you have to reload after each shot, you’ll need to time your shots pretty precisely. This demo for the as-yet-unfinished Shot in the Dark had me when the rival gunslingers arrived.

  • According to Kotaku, speaking with people familiar with its E3 plans, the publisher was going to host its first E3 press conference to show some projects we’ve already heard rumours about—including new Batman and Harry Potter games. A prominent leaker alleged that it would be called Batman: Arkham Legacy. It could be a follow-up to WB Games Montreal’s Batman: Arkham Origins. A new Harry Potter game was also poised to be revealed. In 2018, footage of a Harry Potter RPG leaked, showing off charact

  • The shutdown is bad enough in its own right, but making matters worse, it comes in the wake of growing questions about E3’s relevance at a time when broadband internet has enabled game publishers to reach their customers directly. Devolver Digital, which got the E3 cancellation rumor ball rolling downhill last night, is “bummed” about the cancellation but still plans on holding a Devolver Direct livestream in 2020.

  • CD Projekt Red has said it will focus its efforts entirely on the Cyberpunk 2077 and Witcher series, while also reaffirming that it wants to develop more games in The Witcher universe. Based on Kicinski’s statement that CD Projekt plans to continue working in the Witcher and Cyberpunk universes, a new Witcher RPG seems likely. From what CD Projekt has said in the past, though, it probably won’t be called The Witcher 4. During the same interview, Kicinski also discussed the potential for COVID-19

Yesterday, he was ambushed by other players while hauling a lifetime’s worth of treasure, losing an astonishing 150 billion ISK, EVE Online’s in-game currency.

The company hopes the increase will help out those who are working, taking classes, or socializing remotely as a result of the global coronavirus health emergency.

  • For playing games at 1440p, the GeForce RTX 2060 is the best graphics card for the job, based on its price-to-performance ratio. To that end, the bang-for-buck factor is even better right now if you take advantage of EVGA’s sale on its GeForce RTX 2060 Super SC Ultra Black Gaming (08G-P4-3065-KR) model. Nothing else touches that in 2060 Super territory outside of potentially finding a deal for a used or refurbished model. That’s even cheaper than most Radeon RX 5700 cards, which the 2060 Super e

  • It’s a shame Philips does not pay more attention to the gaming monitor segment, because it would probably do well in that category. I say this because its new 34-inch curved 364P1CRH monitor offers some compelling features for the price. To that end, it offers a respectable 4ms gray-to-gray response time and 100Hz refresh rate at its native 3440×1440 resolution. Also of note is the wide color gamut. Nixeus has a model with a 144Hz refresh rate that is on sale for $549.99 (down from $599.99).
