It was first announced all the way back in 2010 that beloved sci-fi series Mass Effect was being turned into a movie. Fast forward 11 years and, uh, no movie.

Over 20 years ago, as Microsoft were gearing up to release the original Xbox, some at the company were concerned that they wouldn't have enough games to accompany the console at launch. So someone had the bright idea to go and try to buy Nintendo. Problem solved.

Some of the initial reviews described Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl as incredibly workmanlike, and they were correct. These games are serviceable recreations that seem to do the bare minimum when it comes to adding anything new, let alone surprising. And yet for all of their mediocrity I can't stop…

Want to party like it's 1997? Well, you're in luck, as a dedicated group of Zelda fans recently wrapped on a project that's all about recreating what it felt like to play Ocarina of Time at a Nintendo event in the late 90s before it was officially released.

Battlefield 2042 players will see a patch inbound this week that will help address some of the FPS game's most urgent issues. Update 2 is set to arrive November 25, and includes some initial fixes for bullet spread (particularly from assault rifles), better soldier revives, some vehicle rebalancing, and more.
Dice says it'll have more complete patch notes available November 24, but the focus of Update 2 will first be to correct the low accuracy on many of Battlefield 2042's assault rifles. Across the board, you should see less spread while using aim-down-sights on the move, and many weapons should be more accurate while zoomed in and stationary as well. Dice says bullet spread will decrease faster when you pace your shots, so you'll have good reasons to use semi-auto or quick burst fire modes.
Update 2 will also introduce improved soldier revives, which means you shouldn't have any more issues trying to revive a teammate who's downed close to a wall or other object. The update will add a new respawn protection system, and re-enable the UAV-1 interaction in Battlefield Portal that was originally available on the Battlefield Bad Company 2 maps, now that it's had a bit of a nerf.Battlefield 2042 review, Best multiplayer games on PC, Best FPS games on PC

Satisfactory's Update 5, which emerged on the experimental branch in the sandbox game last month, is now out in the live game. This update adds brand new tools for creating custom signage for your worlds, as well as spiffy new tools for customising your factories' visual appearance.
There are now 10 different signs you can place anywhere in the world, using poles with adjustable heights. As you can see in the trailer below, these can be super handy for providing directions for vehicles or along footpaths. You can use a wide range of colours, fonts, backgrounds, and icons on your signs, so you should have no problem getting your message across.
In the teaser trailer for Update 5 last month, the centrepiece was a spectacular train collision. However, disasters should be less frequent thanks to the addition of new 'block' and 'path' signals you can use on train tracks. Block signals designate sections of track that can only be occupied by a single train at a time, while path signals map out designated routes through your transit system.

Nurgle has always been Warhammer's clearest nod to the gross-out phase that peaked in the 1980s, when the conventional wisdom seemed to be that any show or line of toys could be improved by adding slime. Total War: Warhammer III's rendition of Nurgle's forces is true to the source material, and will add plenty of slime, stink, and suppurating sores to the strategy game.
The overarching theme for Nurgle is life giving way to rot, which in turn produces new, frequently disgusting, life. That's an idea present in the Nurgle campaign mechanics, and it'll be present on the battlefield as well. Nurgle's units aren't as cruel or obviously malevolent as their daemonic cousins in the employ of Tzeentch or Khorne, they just understand the phrase "eat, pray, love" a little differently than most of us do.
The basic building block of a Nurgle army is the nurgling, a small daemon born in some kind of cyst that forms in the organs of a Great Unclean One. Nurglings serve a variety of roles in Nurgle's armies, from bearing up legendary lord Ku'gath Plaguefather's palanquin to acting as ersatz gas grenades. They can also be fielded as infantry units with vanguard deployments, although they're weak on their own and should ideally be paired with Nurgle's flying chaos furies.Total War: Warhammer 3 release date, Total War: Warhammer 3 races, The best strategy games on PC

I've always found it hard to get excited about the Men Of War series. This is admittedly partly down to the name. Short of outright calling your game "War", Men Of War is about as generic a title as you can get for a video game. And I think this was at least partly reflective of the games behind it. Men Of War has generally delivered dependable real-time tactics games, but the series has never excited me in the way that, say, Relic's Company Of Heroes does.
So it's a promising sign that, at the end of Best Way's demonstration of the just-announced Men Of War II, I came away keen to play it. Not only does it look slicker and more user friendly than earlier games (without compromising on the depth that appeals to the series' core fanbase) there are a couple of ideas it's playing with that lodged themselves in my mind like chunks of grenade shrapnel.

The studio behind Death Stranding have announced they're opening a new division in Los Angeles to enter the worlds of television, film, and music. Kojima Productions have confirmed no specific projects or plans yet. Even as someone who has a lot of time and enthusiasm for Kojima's self-serious wacky plots, I hope the plan isn't for anything as banal as a Death Stranding movie. Their video games are delightful because they're video games.

Many games across a variety of genres feature a proper photo mode these days — it's quickly become an industry staple. Especially ones that like to flex their graphical fidelity such as Microsoft Flight Simulator and Forza Horizon 5 — there are entire communities that have spawned around sharing screenshots from such titles. That being said, Farming Simulator 22 also has a lot going for it in its graphics department, and yet, it lacks a proper photo mode. Or rather, it lacks one on the surface. With just a tiny bit of tinkering with some game settings, you too can start snapping up a storm in this richly detailed world. Better yet, once you change the setting once, you'll be good to go from then on. That said, if you're visiting with the hopes of doing this on a console build of the game, sadly it won't work since it involves changing a line in one of the sim's settings files to get rid of the HUD.

We covered Monster Hunter Rise's demo back when it went live and, honestly, I was more than pleased by the game's performance. On a mid-range setup, I got over 100 fps with ease at max settings. Now we know why. Monster Hunter Rise's PC requirements have been revealed, making it even more clear just how easy it'll be to run the game even for people without monstrous rigs. At the very least, it's a less demanding game than Monster Hunter World by a fairly wide margin, but that game does have more complex visuals. Take a look for yourself below: Minimum: GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 (DDR4) or AMD Radeon RX 550 CPU: Intel Core i3-4130 or Core i5-3470 or AMD FX-6100 RAM: 8 GB Recommended: GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (VRAM 3 GB) or AMD Radeon RX 570 (VRAM 4 GB) CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 or AMD FX-8300 RAM: 8 GB As you can see, those are definitely on the low side.

Halo Infinite's Tenrai event has finally arrived. It kicks off today, November 23, and features a slew of new rewards for players to earn through its 30-tier reward system. This event has been highly anticipated by the Halo community, so I'm sure many are ready to test their blades. Rewards earned during the event include new weapon skins, emblems, and a samurai-themed armor core. The Tenrai event is a big deal for both Halo Infinite and its developer, 343 Industries. Not only is it the first major event for the multiplayer mode, it also comes after an update that addressed issues with battle pass progression. This event also seems to have a few issues of its own that players may have problems with. First and foremost, players will only have a week to complete the event before it disappears.
