  • The RTX 2060 is Nvidia’s cheapest graphics card capable of ray tracing, and originally launched a year ago for an MSRP of $350 (though it was difficult to find a 2060 at that price for a while). An upgraded model was released in mid-2019 for $400, the RTX 2060 Super, and now Nvidia has officially lowered the price of the regular RTX 2060 to $299. The first evidence of the price drop came last week, when EVGA released two new RTX 2060 cards at CES, one of which was priced at just $280. Now Nvidia

  • Horace is an unpredictable platformer with a narrative bent and plenty of mechanical twists. It’s not what it always seems, but to find out more you’ll need to take it for a spin yourself. Thankfully, it’s free on the Epic Games Store for a week. Here’s Dominic Tarason’s take on why this weird platformer is more than worth a look:Six hours into Horace and after several genre shifts, I officially gave up trying to predict what this narrative-driven adventure was hiding up its sleeve next. You can

  • And now here comes Bonfire Peaks, with more things to climb. The announcement trailer, above, doesn’t give much away, but Martin says it’s an open-world affair about climbing ruins and setting fire to your belongings. Attachment is the theme, apparently, and you’ll be able to “indulge your feelings” as you clamber over the ruins. More practically, you’ll be picking stuff up, plonking stuff down and creating paths so you can eventually toss stuff in the titular bonfires. You’ll be able to get in

  • A startup has built what it claims is the “world’s first true smart contact lens” with an embedded display that would bring augmented reality experiences closer to your eyeball than ever before. The company is called Mojo Vision, and its Mojo Lens is the culmination of over a decade of research, development, and patent filings (it’s racked up over 100 patents to date). Having a functioning, built-in display in a contact lens is obviously an achievement, but Mojo Vision also claims it is the smal

  • AMD is pushing out a new Adrenalin driver (20.1.2) for its Radeon graphics cards, and if you happen to own a 5700 series model, you should check it out. According to the release notes, it addresses an issue that causes intermittent reboots when the PC is left idling on the desktop. AMD pushed out a larger GPU update last week containing over two dozen bug fixes, and optimized code for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne. Beyond that, AMD’s driver team squeezed in some optimizations for Dragon Ball Z:

  • It launched in November 2019 in not-quite-stellar shape, bought a studio, added achievements, and then, well, that’s pretty much it. It wasn’t the most auspicious start to a potentially revolutionary new gaming technology, but bigger things are planned for 2020, including a significant expansion of its game library. “Looking at our upcoming lineup, we are tracking more than 120 games coming to Stadia in 2020, and are targeting more than ten games in the first half of this year alone that will be

Developed by Zachtronics, Eliza explores a future where digital therapy and e-counseling are an accessible and on-demand service available to everyone.

  • Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’s latest update has unlocked a bunch of cosmetic bonuses that were previously only available to players who took a chance on preordering Cal and company’s planet-hopping misadventure. Jedi: Fallen Order lightsaber colours are more important to the Star Wars universe than character development, so most exciting of the bunch is the orange lightsaber crystal, which looks more yellow to me, honestly. Fallen Order has been out for a couple of months now, so anyone who pre

  • Quantic Dream boss David Cage has kicked off 2020 by teasing the studio’s plans for the year, though unfortunately he avoids any specifics. He does promise a lot of surprises for its fans, however, and judging by the tweet they might have something to do with Detroit: Become Human. We have a lot of surprises to come for our fans, so stay tuned!And in 2020 more than ever: be deviant! While Cage refers to the game in his tweet, a sequel or some kind of follow-up would be new territory for Quantic

  • Call of Duty: Modern Warfare’s first season started back in December, but if you’ve not had much time to spend with it, Infinity Ward has some good news: it’s been extended for a few weeks. Infinity Ward announced the extension last night, but if you’ve already spent loads of time working your way through challenges and unlocking new items, you’ll still have new stuff to dig into. Additional items and challenges will be available, not least of which is a challenge that will net you a crossbow. M

  • Rocket League’s new arena, the Forbidden Temple, is a fetching car-ball battlefield all decked out reds and purples, and it will be available to everyone from January 20 to celebrate Chinese New Year. Along with the Forbidden Temple, the Lucky Lanterns event will also let you earn red envelopes that can be redeemed for New Year rewards, including some very flashy cosmetics for your wee cars, including paper dragon kites and new dragon-themed skins.

  • Haunted Garage, despite the slightly misleading name, is not a horror game. It’s a game about forming a band, by collecting massive, over-complicated instruments and placing them inside a minimalist room. The point-and-click adventure portion is nice enough, if a bit simple, but I’m not sure I’ve played a game that does instruments as well as Haunted Garage. If you like making music, or really just tinkering with machines, you should download or play Haunted Garage online, post-haste. For more g

  • Sea of Thieves’ new Legends of the Sea update, which is live today, adds a new NPC who’ll send you searching for tributes to legendary players. That sounds nice, but more importantly, it brings back Gilded Voyages for a limited time, which put a lot of gold within reach for the brave. Each player can only claim one Gilded Voyage, so be sure you’re ready to take one on before requesting it from Duke in a tavern. You can now turn your Gilded Voyage treasures in to the Masked Stranger at the Reaper

  • In contrast to last year’s Dragon Ball FighterZ, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot is a colourful and sprawling action RPG.

The game launches this Friday, and to celebrate Bandai Namco has released the launch trailer embedded above. Morgan has rounded up everything there is to know about Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot ahead of

  • Fortnite’s newest skin in the item shop totally looks like the aquatic cousin of The Pain from Metal Gear Solid 3. He’s currently in the Fortnite item shop for a cool 1,200 V-Bucks, which equates to roughly $12-$13 real-world dollars. For your trouble, you’ll also get the “Shark Tank” back bling. Check out our Fortnite hub page for every news story and guide we publish. You can also check out our favorite Fortnite creative codes, and here’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2.

  • Is your current gaming headset causing your ears to sweat? I’ve never had that happen myself, but I have worn HP’s Omen Mindframe headset with active cooling and can say they bring the chill (in a good way). It doesn’t always sell for the full MSRP, but a look at the price history shows that it sometimes does. When I trialed them a year ago, I didn’t think the sound quality was on par with the asking price. But at $59.99, it’s a much more compelling headset, given the comfort and 7.1 virtual sur

  • Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a big success for Capcom on PC, but it hasn’t been an entirely smooth ride. [PC/Steam] UPDATE: We’re planning to deploy a patch in the next few days to address issues relating to the CPU utilization and Save Data compatibility (ver.

  • Ahead of the launch of Hearthstone’s new solo adventure Galakrond’s Awakening next week, Blizzard has released a new Hearthside Chat video recapping the events leading up to it, and what players can expect when it goes live. Most of it is stuff we already know, but it gets a little more interesting around the halfway point, when designer Dean Ayala shows off a few of the new cards coming in the adventure. Winged Guardian is a “formidable taunt minion,” Ayala says in the video, with the Reborn me
