Watch the Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Announcement Trailer


At the end of February, the world was alerted to the fact that Respawn Entertainment (Titanfall, Apex Legends) and EA would reveal a trailer for their new Star Wars title on this very day. It turns out, this scheduled event happened as planned.

Imagine that.

Earlier today the studios revealed the first details and trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order at the Star Wars Celebration that has been going on this weekend in Chicago. This is an original game set in the Star Wars universe and looks to take place after Order 66 was issued. This places the game set shortly...
 

New 425.31 Nvidia Drivers Bring Ray Tracing to Older GTX Cards

Remember about a month back when we told you that ray tracing was coming to those with non-RTX Nvidia cards? That day has finally arrived. With today's release of the 425.31 drivers, those on 1060 and higher cards can now give real-time ray tracing a spin.

Since all of these older cards lack the special hardware that helps to speed up DirectX Raytracing (DXR) in games, don't expect to have fantastic framerates. However, if you understand what you're getting yourself into, go nuts with it. Just make sure you have one of the following cards, have updated to the 425.31 Nvidia drivers,...

Apex Legends to Soon Start Penalizing Early Leavers


A new feature is in the works for Apex Legends that aims to penalize those players that leave a game prematurely. Last week's 1.1 update for the game briefly introduced a penalty system for those that left a game before their team was eliminated. This feature was quickly pulled for reasons unknown but some additional details on this new mechanic were shared today from Respawn.

Community manager Jayfresh shared some details about what they're working on via Reddit.



Subsequent responses in the thread cleared up a few of the major questions fans of...
 

Z1 Battle Royale Dropped by New Developer After One Month


Daybreak Games just can't seem to catch a break. Their mess, otherwise known as H1Z1 has been met with another weird twist in its story. It was announced that NantG Mobile, the studio that took over development of the game, has dropped the game and given it back to its original developer Daybreak Games.

H1Z1 is now known as Z1 Battle Royale, but you may also know it as H1Z1: King of the Kill, H1Z1: Just Survive, King of the Kill, or the second iteration of its original H1Z1 name. Included in all of these name changes was the apparent removal of the survival aspect to the game,...

    In addition, more units of Super NES Classic Edition will ship on its Sept. 29 launch day in the U.S. than were shipped of NES Classic Edition all last year, with subsequent shipments arriving in stores regularly. Fans have shown their unbridled enthusiasm for these Classic Edition systems, so Nintendo is working to put many more of them on

  • Bungie Issues Apology for Including Legendary Gauntlet with White Supremacist Logo in Destiny 2

    Earlier today, Waypoint pointed out that a piece of Legendary gear in Destiny 2 bears a damn close resemblance to the "KEK" logo that has become a very popular symbol for white supremacist in the United States. Specifically, it's the "KEK" logo from the Kekistan flag. Yes, to most sane and rational people that probably sounds incredibly stupid, but it's actually a thing.
    Without going into the long lineage of bullshit memes that are the signs and sigils of modern white supremacy's public face, the "Kekistan flag" combines a popular internet shorthand that became a symbol of white supremacist sympathies with the German military flag of Hitler's

    New Evil Within 2 Gameplay Trailer is a Race Against Time

    The October 13 release date for The Evil Within 2 is rapidly approaching, which means it's about time for a new dose of spooky media to share with you. This latest video is a gameplay focused one and it's all about a flat out race against time. It's probably just a coincidence that "Race Against Time" is also what the video is called.
    Time is not on your side in The Evil Within 2. As Sebastian Castellanos, you will face unimaginable terrors as you fight to find your daughter within the nightmare of STEM and get her out safely before the entire system crumbles around you. On top of the hideous creatures

    Outcast: Second Contact - First Gameplay Video

    Bigben and Appeal have released the first in what seems to be a series of gameplay videos for Outcast: Second Contact. Outcast: Second Contact is a remake of the 1999 game, Outcast, which is apparently the "first 3D open world" game to exist. I don't know enough to argue this remark, so I'll just have to take them on their word for now.

    Switch and 3DS Focused Nintendo Direct Coming September 13

  • PewDiePie is Still a Racist - Casually Drops Racist Slur During Stream

    PewDiePie is Still a Racist - Casually Drops Racist Slur During Stream

    In today's bit of totally shocking news, Felix "PewDiePie" Kjellberg yet again outed himself as being a racist. Say what? PewDiePie certainly doesn't have a history of uttering racist or anti-Semitic remarks in the public eye. And it's not like he's ever been penalized for paying people to say things on his behalf such as "Death to all Jews." Right? RIGHT?!

    In all seriousness though, PewDiePie said a racial slur during a recent stream. It was casually dropped as though it wasn't even given a second thought before he said it during a game of PUBG.

    What's his excuse going to be this time? ...

  • TmarTn and Syndicate Get Off Scott Free After Promoting Gambling Site to Minors

    TmarTn and ProSyndicate have gotten away with little more than a stern warning after it was discovered that they were promoting Counter-Strike: Global Offensive gambling sites to minors. Specifically, they were promoting CS:GO gambling sites that they owned to minors, without any sort of disclosure. The two had paid other, unnamed, YouTubers anywhere between $2,500 (USD) and $55,000 to promote their sites. Well, the FTC has investigated and surprise, surprise, the two will face no penalties for their actions. Oh, but don't worry too much. The FTC said that in the future they will require proper disclosure from the two and will enforce violations. They will a...
