Facebook Bringing Ads to Oculus Quest Apps

This is fucked up.

According to a new report from The Verge, Facebook will soon place ads within Oculus Quest apps.

Review: RIG 500 Pro HX Gen 2 Headset for Xbox

Fantastic audio quality at an affordable price.

I was recently given the opportunity to review some new hardware from RIG (they are owned by NACON now). You already saw what I thought about the RIG Pro Compact Wired Controller.

Specifically, this review is about the 500 Pro HX, a headset designed for use with the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Windows 10....

    You were so close, EA. So close.

    On May 6, word came out that EA was planning to have a free next-gen upgrade program. Though unstated by the company, it was flatley assumed that this program would follow what companies like Microsoft and CD Projekt Red were planning. That is to say: They would allow fans to purchase a current-gen version of a game and then get a free upgrade to the next-gen version for free without any sort of a catch.

    Top Three Midlaners To Play in Dota 2 7.26c Patch


    Today we take a look at some of the strongest mid-laners in Dota 2 that will help you gain MMR or simply win games in normal Dota 2 matches.

    Almost no pub game starts without a fight for who will take the mid lane, because people know how much of an impact...
