You might have seen the Street Fighter 6 logo, reproduced above, on this very page yesterday. We posted about the teaser for Capcom's next entry in its seminal fighting game series, and the thumbnail for said post was in fact the logo for the game, borrowed directly from the end of the teaser. Well, we may not have... Read more...
If you are looking to copyright artwork created by artificial intelligence (AI), you may be out of luck. Steven Thaler has attempted to copyright a two-dimensional piece of artwork created by a computer algorithm twice, and has been denied both times.

We've seen some cool kicks over the years, from the original Reebok Pump from the late 1980s to self-lacing Nike MAG that Marty McFly famously wore in Back to the Future. But neither of those came with a fully assembled PC inside, let alone one with liquid cooling as a standard option. Cooler Master's upcoming Sneaker... Read more...
If anything is actually like watching a train wreck (which I've never done), it would be witnessing a premium smartphone undergo an unforgiving durability test, as is the case here with the OnePlus 10 Pro introduced last month at CES. There's just something unsettling about seeing a top tier handset scratched with a... Read more...

It took a minute, but Sony finally revealed the finished design of its upcoming PlayStation VR2 headset and matching VR2 Sense controllers. At a glance it's not drastically different in appearance than the first-gen PSVR headset (save for the controllers), though it's definitely sleeker and more modern. It's also been... Read more...
The Capcom Pro Tour fighting game tournament just wrapped, and at the end of the fights last night, the series' host dropped an announcement that was news to absolutely no-one that pays attention to these sorts of things. As expected, Street Fighter 6 is on the way, and along with the announcement, Capcom released a... Read more...
Steam has a reputation for running sales with games listed at heavily discounted prices. The Steam Lunar New Year, Winter, Autumn, and Summer sales are particularly notable for high discounts across a very large selection of titles, but sales smaller in scope take place all year round, including individual sales put...

Barely more than a week ago, we heard through the grapevine that AMD had moved up its plans to launch its Zen 4 CPUs from Q4 of this year to Q3, and possibly as soon as August or July. The only source is frequent Twitter leaker Greymon55, but their information has been accurate many times in the past. Perhaps adding... Read more...
It's pretty amazing the level of firepower that company's can pack into a small form factor (SFF) machine. Intel's enthusiast-grade Next Unit of Computing (NUC) PCs have really highlighted this, as we saw in our NUC 11 Extreme 'Beast Canyon' review last December. An even faster iteration is apparently just around the... Read more...
So you scored yourself a newfangled Xbox Series X|S or PlayStation 5 console (congrats!), or at least you're hopeful you will during the next restock event. Now you're wondering what's the best TV to connect it to for the best high action experience. You're absolutely correct to assume that your choice of display... Read more...
Cheating has been in games since almost the beginning. In the early days, video games were hard so kids would feed more quarters into arcade machines. So early video game developers would work in little codes to test their games more easily. For example, the most well-known cheat from that era was the Konomi Code, put... Read more...
A new feature on Snapchat is aimed at making college life safer by being able to temporarily share your location with friends.

New research suggests that not only are AI-generated faces indistinguishable from real ones, but are more trustworthy as well. And as such, AI-synthesized text, audio, image, and video are being used in nefarious ways such as financial fraud, blackmail, and disinformation campaigns. Yikes! Artificial Intelligence...

Can you believe that we're already into Year 2 of the latest generation game consoles? Be that as it may, the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X remain as elusive as ever, due to a combination of factors (chip shortage, rabid demand, and scalpers, mostly). If you've been trying to get your hands on one, you'll have... Read more...
The countdown to Destiny 2: The Witch Queen is almost over! The upcoming expansion will bring many changes to the game, but one of the more controversial updates are the new power level caps.

A scene from the 90’s classics Armageddon or Deep Impact is unlikely to happen in real life any time soon (thankfully since we don't have the tech to save Earth from a doomsday event). Nevertheless, a handful of rather big asteroids have zipped by the Earth this past week. One of these large asteroids will be... Read more...
Fancy a free performance boost for your Radeon RX 6000 series GPU? A pretty big one is just a driver download away, though obviously there are some caveats.

A feature, formerly exclusive to the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, has found its way to other Pixel devices in a recent update to Google's Gboard software. That feature is grammar check, and it has a surprisingly small resource footprint, and is reasonably fast, even as far back as on a Pixel 3. The feature, outlined on... Read more...
This week, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) published a “Free Cybersecurity Services and Tools” webpage outlining what can be done for security incidents, intrusions, preparation, and resilience against cyberattacks.
