You may already be composing a comment declaring that this makes it a very thin comparison point for the Hitman series, but it's important that you understand that I am a very bad Hitman player. Not for me the painstaking observation and elaborate assassination scenarios. No, my default way of playing Hitman is to swipe a costume and then embark on a clumsy and steadily escalating spree as I create as much mayhem and confusion as possible. And in that sense, the way I play Hitman is exactly identical to the gameplay of Under the Skin, just without the generous sprinkles of golden coins. … [Read more...] about Revisiting Under the Skin, Capcom’s forgotten arcade stealth game

James Davenport, Editor: I think a Star Wars flavored game about collecting different colors of Stormtrooper armor would be great. Warp the shape a bit, make the eye slots bigger, maybe even smaller. Half of my interest in Star Wars is purely visual, anchored to cool space people in cool space outfits. Give me a gun, put me behind cover, and let me dress nice. Do what The Division could never do and get me invested in my little guy beyond what kinda numbers they're packing. The Division 2 is gorgeous and feels great in the hands, but it's a truly shit fiction wrapped in faded jeans and tactical vests with 100 pockets. Nothing about it is cool. Star Wars, as much as I get peeved about repackaged nostalgia, is at least nice to look at and listen to. … [Read more...] about What do we want from Ubisoft’s open world Star Wars game?

Here's the first of our pay-off mods, and it's a monster. Players tend to sleep on Reactive Pulse, partly because it originally had a different name and didn't do what the description said. Whoops! It actually works in multiple ways: When you take damage your guardian will emit an explosive blast of Arc energy that does substantial damage. Not enough that it's going to worry bosses, but as you can see from the gif above it clears swarms of adds just fine. Essentially you become a walking grenade that functions as both an offensive and defensive tool. Reactive Pulse is so good that once you take it off you'll feel the absence immediately. As with certain other Arc affinity mods, it also comes with a secondary perk which will be active provided you have another Arc-affinity mod socketed somewhere else in your build, including in the same piece of armour. In this case it grants an overshield when performing finishers. Overshields are good. … [Read more...] about How to create a powerful Destiny 2 ‘Charged with Light’ build that works anywhere
Rocket Lake is set to deliver improved single-threaded core performance over its predecessors, and perhaps even enough to draw ahead of AMD's Zen 3 architecture by a hair. However, it will be forced to concede in multithreaded performance, as even the top chip, the Core i9 11900K, will arrive with two fewer cores than its predecessor at eight cores and 16 threads. That's half the count of AMD's 16-core Ryzen 9 5950X. … [Read more...] about The 7 announcements from CES 2021 that every PC gamer should know about
