DICE Nerfed the TTK Yet Again in Battlefield V

Almost one year later and DICE is repeating the same exact mistakes.

Back on December 12, 2018, DICE decided to adjust the TTK (Time To Kill) for weapons in Battlefield V. A lot of the changes made weapons a fair bit less effective at actually taking out enemies. DICE said that they found that their "wider player base was dying too fast." That is to say, the shorter TTK wasn't too friendly for new players. To say that the core Battlefield community hated the changes is probably a massive understatement.

So, DICE tried to find a compromise...
 

Resident Evil 3 Remake Cover Art Leaked

Features a look at Jill, Carlos, and Nemesis.

We seem to have yet another leak on our hands today. This time it's for the still not officially announced remake of Resident Evil 3. It seems as though the cover art for this totally not real game was found on the servers for the PlayStation Store.

A games tracker feature on Gamstat quickly embeded the images from the PlayStation Store and thus made them visible publicly. Since then the images were pulled from being publicly accessible on the PlayStation Store. It's a good thing Gematsu saved the...

  • The Power of Loot Boxes in Games

    The Power of Loot Boxes in Games

    Is it gambling like UK online casinos or is it gaming? Loot boxes have been used by developers for the last few years and are subject to many debates.

In any case, it seems we can continue to discuss loot boxes for a long while. In this article, we will take a close look at the topic and talk about how this mechanics affects games and players.

    For example, an ad of NetEnt casino would be telling you about the advantages...

  • Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released

    Day One Patch Notes for Anthem Released


    The "day one patch" for Anthem has just been detailed by BioWare and EA. This is the update that will be required for players to download prior to hopping into Anthem on February 22. As far as I can see, this update has not yet been released to those playing on either EA Access or Origin Access.

    The update contains a decent list of fixes and quality of life improvements. Notably, it addresses the overly long loading times that many players have been very vocally complaining about. It also helps to address infinite loading screen issues, crash bugs, and more.

    The full list of changes can be found below. ...

    Review: Ultralite DT Blue Light Filtering Glasses from Eagle Eyes


    I spy, with my filtered eye, something that is…

    Today, we are going to be reviewing something a little bit outside of the usual. Usually, we typically just review video games or even the occasional piece of hardware for TGN, but a review for glasses? Well, it's certainly a new one for us.

    These are not any old pair of glasses though. These are the Ultralite DT from Eagle Eyes. What sets them apart from other glasses is the promise that they will protect your eyes from blue light that blasts your eyes from any number of digital screens. Eagle...

  • Crackdown 3 on PC Locked to 30FPS in Co-op

    Crackdown 3 on PC Locked to 30FPS in Co-op


    If you plan on playing through Crackdown 3 in co-op, it may be worth knowing that the game will be locked to 30FPS. Yes, even on PC.

    To be fair to the Xbox One versions of the game, it's capped at 30FPS as it is, even when playing alone. However, the PC version has the ability to play with much higher framerates, including uncapped if you so desire. That is, unless you're playing co-op on the PC.

    A number of Reddit users have found out that the 30FPS cap comes into play whether or not you are playing PC to PC or PC to Xbox.
