I can't pretend Under the Skin is a particularly good game. It's woefully shallow and often teeth-grindingly unfair, as confusing action collides with an unhelpful camera. The overall tone and characters are so exuberant and over the top that it becomes exhausting to watch, let alone play. It is fun, though, in small doses and it still pops into my brain whenever stealth games are in discussion, so it must have done something right. If nothing else it makes me wish for a mod that lets Agent 47 turn into a giant puce superhero and fly around the level, knocking people over like a psychotic Mr Tumble. … [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.

Build crafting in Destiny 2 has gone from non-existent at launch to now being so complex that some players are afraid to even touch it. Which is a shame, because the two main mod systems—'Charged with Light' and 'Warmind Cells'—enable perks that are super fun and powerful to play with. Unfortunately, the game doesn't do a great job of explaining how either system works, and because the mods were released in previous seasons, they can be annoying to get hold of now. Make sure to check the Gunsmith at the Tower daily to see which mods he's selling and buy any you don't have. … [Read more...] about How to create a powerful Destiny 2 ‘Charged with Light’ build that works anywhere
That would still make for a notably large gaming monitor, even at a 4K resolution, but it's at least a promising sign that soon you could hook up your PC to a well-featured TV and get gaming with little delay. With growing support for VRR, quicker response times, and HDMI 2.1 on TVs, the thought of PC gaming on a TV might not be as abhorrent an idea as we've come to assume in the near-future. … [Read more...] about The 7 announcements from CES 2021 that every PC gamer should know about
