So, when is this new series set? If we're guessing, Leon looks closer in age to his appearance in Resident Evil 6 - so perhaps after that? He was left out of Resident Evil 7, while the upcoming Resident Evil Village (aka Resi 8) appears to be yet another Chris Redfield joint. It'd be nice to catch up with the series' better protagonist again. … [Read more...] about Netflix show Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness will be part of video game “canon”

You can recruit and play as any NPCThat's a big claim, but Watch Dogs Legion is an ambitious game. There is no single protagonist in Legion. Cutscenes, story beats, and dialogue will all change depending on the DedSec member you're currently playing as. Each character has a host of different attributes that affect their playstyle. Scanning a random citizen might reveal that their background makes them better at non-lethal takedowns or hacking drones. They aren't all badass hackers though, some are just average folks willing to join the cause. … [Read more...] about Watch Dogs Legion: everything we know about London’s hacker revolution
13 Sentinels often feels a lot like a visual novel, because you puzzle the story together from various keywords and events, using a system called "Cloud Sync", inspired by the menus in point and click adventure games. The cloud is a literal thought bubble holding every important bit of information a character gathers, which you can then use in conversations. Sometimes in order to progress with the story, you need to access a piece of information and then listen to the character think it over or mention it to someone else. You're never told what the next step is, which unfortunately can lead to several moments where you move from screen to screen or go through all of your keywords again in the hopes of encountering something new. Each character spends most of their time doing the same things over and over - every day in Juro's story, for example, always begins in his classroom at the end of lessons, and there are many conversations you'll have several times before a keyword triggers a … [Read more...] about 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim review – a heady mix of sci-fi, passion and big ideas
A new zone for new characters called Exile's Reach has been added, which provides a much more fun and comprehensive introduction from levels 1-10, primarily for new players.Character levels have been squished down to a new level cap of 60. This has significantly shortened the time it takes to progress a new character to max level while also making the whole experience feel more satisfying, since you get skills throughout.There's a new process for how you level your characters. You start in Exile's Reach until level tem (or choose between the new leveling island and their race’s existing starting area, if you’re experienced) and then move onto the Battle for Azeroth expansion by default if you're new. This expansion will take your character from level 10 to level 50, where you'll then jump into Shadowlands. Players who have already completed Battle for Azeroth on one character will instead get to choose between BfA and one of the previous seven expansions to level through to … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft beginner’s guide: How to get into WoW in time for Shadowlands
Why is this important? Previously, CPUs have only been able to access a tiny fraction of a graphics card’s memory banks – just 256MB, to be precise. At the moment, game developers use that tiny 256MB of memory to enable CPUs to occasionally handle things like buffers, polygon meshes, and texture and geometry data. In the distant past of 17 years ago, this wasn’t a huge problem given that GPU memory wasn’t much bigger than that in the first place. Now, though, it’s a different story, as all three of AMD’s new Big Navi GPUs have a whopping 16GB of GDDR6 memory apiece – and with Smart Access Memory, a Ryzen 5000 CPU will be able to access the whole lot of it. … [Read more...] about Could AMD’s Smart Access Memory be the secret sauce of Big Navi?
