The most shocking moment in Halo Infinite isn't about exploding a derelict ancient space station or accidentally awakening a once-slumbering threat. It's a brief exchange between two main characters, one that reveals the extent to which Halo protagonist Master Chief would go to fulfill what he sees as his immovable…

December still has a few days left, which means we still have a little bit more time to reminisce back on the year that was. In this case, Japanese publisher Nintendo released a punchy supercut of what are, apparently, the most popular smaller budget games on its portable platform.

It's no secret that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was an incredibly influential game. It spawned numerous copycats while shifting both our understanding and expectations of what open-world games can be. But what if you've scoured all the nooks and crannies of Hyrule and still want to explore something? Well,…

I'm not an accommodating video game critic. A game either sinks its hooks into me within the first hour, or I immediately bounce to something else. I've never had any patience for this "it gets good after ten hours" nonsense. A game either understands its own brilliance, or it doesn't. And only titles that fearlessly…

Diablo's anniversary is only a few days away, and that means the Darkening of Tristram event is returning to Diablo 3. Blizzard reveals on the action-RPG's blog that the event will partially start on December 31 with the appearance of cultists before kicking off in full on January 3 when the portal opens.
The event is intended to be a homage to the earliest days of the Diablo series, with familiar foes, locales, and loot all included. The Darkening of Tristram begins with cultists causing trouble in Sanctuary. You'll hunt them down in the game's adventure mode for a few days while finding clues that'll eventually lead you to a portal into Tristram's past.
Once you hop through the portal, you'll swiftly notice an all-too-familiar cathedral from the original game. You'll be able to explore its depths to discover old enemies and recognisable items that have been reimagined in Diablo 3's engine. If you fancy a hit of nostalgia, you can head beneath the catacombs to face the dark lord himself.Diablo 3 builds, Diablo 3 Necromancer skills, Diablo 3 Necromancer beta

John Madden, the former American football coach whose voice and congenial broadcasting style made him synonymous with the National Football League, died unexpectedly December 28. Madden, who lent his name and likeness to the long-running series of football games published by EA, was 85 years old when he passed.
Madden's earliest claim to fame was his ten-year stint as the head coach of the Oakland Raiders, which culminated in a 1976 win over Minnesota Vikings in Super Bowl XI. During his time with the Raiders, he became the youngest coach to rack up 100 wins, which he accomplished by age 42. While he was head coach, the Raiders never completed a season without a winning record. Madden finished out his coaching career with a 103-32-7 regular season record, which remains the best winning percentage for a head coach in the modern NFL.
In 1984, EA Sports approached Madden, who had at that point retired from coaching due to occupational burnout and moved to colour commentary, to discuss endorsing its planned computer football game. Madden saw it as a chance to help people learn about football and was enthusiastic about the concept, but refused to lend his name to the original designs, which used six or seven players per team due to the technical limitations of home computers of the era.

Capcom has remained relatively quiet regarding news of Monster Hunter Rise: Sunbreak, the upcoming expansion for the latest in the company's wildly popular Monster Hunter franchise. So far, Capcom has only put out a handful of teaser trailers and extra bits of information about the expansion's various aspects, such as the new and returning monsters. Considering that the PC version of the base Monster Hunter Rise game will finally come out next month, however, it would make sense for Capcom to unveil more substantial news about Sunbreak soon afterward. As it turns out, Capcom plans to do exactly this. Monster Hunter Rise Director Yoshitake Suzuki teased this upcoming news on the official Monster Hunter Twitter account. He thanked the playerbase for "warm comments" that the developers "received since the announcement of" Sunbreak, and he noted that the team will "share some great reveals with everyone next Spring." Suzuki's comment...

AMD is planning for FidelityFX Super Resolution to be supported in over 70 titles. This was announced in a post from AMD's own community forum celebrating the milestone. It's certainly an impressive number of titles considering FidelityFX Super Resolution only came out six months ago. This is also great news for anyone who owns an AMD graphics card or for those who hope to get one soon. It's a massive increase compared to AMD's initial promises of support in 40 titles by the end of 2021. But, it's still a ways off from the number of games that support Nvidia's DLSS, which is featured in over 100 titles. DLSS has been around for longer to be fair, but it's still an interesting comparison nonetheless. What can AMD's FSR do for you? Resolution upscaling tech is incredibly useful for most graphics cards when trying to render above 1440p with high frame rates to match. Sure, you can get high refresh 4K gameplay with some titles, but ...

It's the latest 24-hour title being given away by the storefront, and you have until 11 AM ET on December 30 to claim it. There will be another mystery game unveiled after that time.

And, if you'll glance over at your calendar, you'll notice that isn't too far away. Souls meets salt You can check out the trailer below to get an idea of what you're in for in Salt and Sanctuary. But I'll give you a little primer, too. It's a Souls-like action RPG with a 2D hand-drawn art style. From that, you know you're in for some challenging encounters. The combat of Salt and Sanctuary is quick, brutal, and surprisingly complex. There are plen...

DNF Duel is the latest fighting game from Arc Systems Works, the people behind Guilty Gear, BlazBlue, and Dragon Ball FighterZ. The game is also being co-developed by Eighting, perhaps best known as the team behind one of the most beloved fighting games of all time, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Based on the insanely popular and long-running MMO Dungeon Fighter, the game is set to release in summer of 2022. The game just wrapped up its first (of hopefully several) open beta tests a few weeks ago. In this article we are going to break down everything we know about DNF Duel so far, and will update it as more information becomes available. Let's get started. The roster The game currently has 11 confirmed characters. Based on the size of the character select screen during the beta, 24 seems to be a safe bet for how many fighters we'll ultimately see in the roster at launch. What is unique about DNF Duel is that, since the characters are based on MMO classes, they have...

AMD is seemingly preparing another method of full-screen gaming resolution scaling with Radeon Super Resolution. Referred to as RSR in short, AMD's image scaling tech could help users gain better performance in certain titles. This information comes via a report from VideoCardz, which compiled these new details. As a rumor, this is mostly speculation for now, so remain skeptical until we get some kind of confirmation from AMD. If this turns out to be true, it could be exciting news for users who want to squeeze as much performance out of their rigs as possible. However, it likely won't replace AMD's current scaling technology, but rather act as a companion to it. A enticing performance boost for AMD users Image scaling tech for PC gaming has improved significantly over the last few years. It has allowed aging PC's to keep up with modern rigs and technology. Nvidia first led the way with its own Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS), which AMD followed up...
