Week two of Fortnite Season 10 is here and with it comes a new weekly mission for Battle Pass holders to partake in. The new mission this week sends players to find lost spray cans. As with all similar challenges where you have to find things, the difficulty is in locating the cans without getting taken out during the search. The good news is there is a handy map that will help you locate the spray cans below, so you can get going with your graffiti-induced creativity. The spray cans are hidden all around the island, and there are more than you need to complete the challenge out there. One aspect of the challenge adding difficulty is that the cans are very small. However, making things a bit... Read more...

Fans of the game franchise Crackdown who are currently playing Crackdown 3, but haven't had the opportunity to play the older games in the franchise, will be glad to hear that the developers have made Crackdown 2 free to play for all Xbox gamers. The original Crackdown went free for Xbox gamers late last year. However, game has also gained backwards compatibility with Xbox One now, so you can play it on the current-gen console without having to get out your old Xbox 360. In addition to making Crackdown 2 backward compatible and free, the developers also have a bunch of announcements for the latest game in the franchise, Crackdown 3. Updates include a Crime Map update that turns any... Read more...
Following the disappointing launch of Fallout 76, a team of modders and fans of other games in the Fallout franchise have set out to recreate what could be the next best game in the Fallout series. The team aims to take the well-developed, story-driven world of Fallout 2 and essentially port it to the Fallout 4 game engine as a mod called "Fallout 4: Project Arroyo." Following the acquisition of the Fallout franchise by Bethesda, Fallout has become one of those widely recognized games with millions of followers worldwide. To be fair, Fallout didn't get there overnight or by the actions of Bethesda alone. The first Fallout game as well as its sequel Fallout 2 were both created by Interplay in... Read more...
If the thought of playing a small and very short new game each day piques your interest, Mediations my be a platform that will interest you. The person behind the idea is Rami Ismail, and the whole concept behind Meditations came to him in late 2017 when he found a small game called TEMPRES, something he calls a minimalist puzzle game. That small game took no longer than five minutes to figure out says Ismail. That experience kicked off a quest to sign up developers to create small games that are easy to pick up, figure out, and play with the Meditations launcher offering up a new title every day. Ismail signed up 350 developers with each developer asked to pick a day of the year that meant something... Read more...

If you are a fan of the original 1993 game Doom, you are in for a treat with Romero Games offering up a new expansion for the original game to celebrate its 25th anniversary. The game is called SIGIL, and John Romero says that the game is a free megawad that contains nine single-player levels and nine deathmatch levels with music by metal guitarist Buckethead. The megawad will launch in mid-February and requires that you have the original 1993 registered version of Doom to play, not the newer 2016 version of Doom for Switch and other platforms. Before you panic -- if you lost your original Doom floppies from way back in 1994 -- the original DOOM is available on Steam. Romero calls SIGIL... Read more...
EA announced that it will partner with Petroglyph Games to remaster Command And Conquer, which is one of the oldest games in the RTS genre. The original Command And Conquer first launched in 1995 and quickly became a success, spawning a whole series of games. It also lead to the creation of the Red Alert series, which has a similar gameplay experience, but it is set in an alternate universe. Due to Command And Conquer's success, EA purchased the game's developer, Westwood Studios, in 1998. Westwood Studios continued to produce new entries in the Command And Conquer series until 2003, when EA closed it down and moved development of future Command And Conquer to a number of other developers. The... Read more...
Bethesda officially launched Fallout 76 today, and already it has received hundreds of negative reviews on Metacritic. The majority of these reviews are for the PS4 version of the game, but the game as whole has a current total of 421 negative reviews. Far fewer positive reviews have been posted to metacritic, adding up to just 123. A common complaint among the reviews is that the game looks and feels too much like Fallout 4, and that's something I agree with. I had a chance to try out the BETA version of Fallout 76 for PC, and gaming with max settings on a 4K screen I couldn't see any visual difference between Fallout 76 and Fallout 4. There were a number of graphical glitches that stood out... Read more...
Fans of first-person shooters know that Battlefield V is launching November 20, and the countdown to that launch is on. Battlefield V has some steep system requirements if you want to enjoy the real-time raytracing feature, but the minimum and recommended PC specs for other modes of the game aren't that stringent. Whichever brand of graphics card you are using, there are new optimized drivers out right now for Battlefield V. NVIDIA's optimized drivers are dubbed GeForce Game Ready 416.81 WHQL and can be grabbed via the GeForce Experience application or downloaded manually here. The notes on the driver listing everything that NVIDIA has addressed in this release can be found here. That multi-page... Read more...

This week at Gamescom 2018, NVIDIA held a GeForce Gaming Celebration to unveil its new GeForce RTX 2080 and 2070 series graphics cards, based on its new Turing GPU architecture. The NVIDIA GPU that powers GeForce RTX cards ushers in a wealth of new technologies, enabled by its new processing engines. These new technologies include hardware-accelerated, real-time Ray Tracing and a new form of anti-aliasing called DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling, among a few others we can't talk about just yet. What’s interesting about DLSS is that it uses Turing’s Tensor cores to enable a deep learning-powered AI technique to dramatically improve image quality and remove jagged edge artifacts...

Fallout 4 is one of the coolest games that Bethesda has ever rolled out, and one of the important things about the game is the DLC that the company has made available to keep players interested. The Nuka-World DLC added a huge new playable area to the game and another nice thing about Fallout 4 was that the game supports mods made by fans. A new fan-made DLC has been announced and it is of the size that we normally only see from Bethesda. The mod is called Northern Springs and claims to be larger than both official DLCs, Far Harbor and Nuka World. Northern Springs was developed by a team called Modular Illusion and adds a large snow-covered area to the North West of the commonwealth... Read more...
Typos are something that we all have made at some point in our work. When it comes to publications, typos sometimes let loose the trolls, sometimes they are flat-out embarrassing, and sometimes they result in both. With that said, we feel for the programmer who wrote code in the critically-panned 2013 game Aliens: Colonial Marines.  The programmer made a single typo which was largely responsible for how bad that game sucked. Anyone who was a fan of the movie franchise the game was based on wanted this game to be awesome. The problem was that the Aliens in the game were brain-dead because of this single-character typo. A modder dubbed jamesdickinson963 has been tinkering... Read more...
