Remember in 2006 when we got a Scarface game set after the ending of the classic '80s gangster flick? It was a weird setup, but the end result was a slightly clunky, yet kind of fun GTA-like open-world game. Apparently it did well enough that a sequel began development, but it was never finished. However, new footage…

     This Cyberpunk 2077 mod could boost performance on lower-spec PCs

AMD's new FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 has only been out for a little over a month, so there aren't too many games that support it yet. One Cyberpunk 2077 modder is trying to change that, however, with a homemade implementation of AMD's fast new image-upscaling technique in the RPG game. From the sounds of things, it's actually working too.

The FidelityFX Super Resolution 2.0 mod for Cyberpunk 2077, created by prolific Cyberpunk modder PotatoOfDoom, replaces the existing Nvidia DLSS temporal upscaling in Cyberpunk 2077 with AMD FSR 2.0. Because of the way both FSR and DLSS works, it's a fairly straightforward process, at least in theory: you just need to remove the DLSS dynamic link library (or .dll) files Cyberpunk 2077 uses with new ones that translate DLSS to FSR 2.0 commands.

Lost Ark pay-to-win microtransactions won't be a thing, it turns out. Smilegate and Amazon Games Studios published a blog post about the MMO game's delayed June update on June 23 and outlined the new Yoz's Jar system, where cosmetics of different types would give players a 1% or 2% attack, intelligence, and dexterity buffs depending on their rarity. While that's not likely to turn the tides of any PvP encounter, that's not really the point.

Things have been fairly peaceful so far in Dyson Sphere Program, the city-building game about creating superstructures that harvest the energy of stars. But in the not-so-distant future, Dyson Sphere Program enemies will be showing up, and they take the form of a black fog that consumes whole planets, always in search of more energy.

Developer Youthcat Studio says the enemy faction, which it's currently working on, is known as the Dark Fog. As it turns out, the Dark Fog is an offshoot of the same self-replicating AI that your mechs and settlements are plugged into, and at one time helped feed resources to the CentreBrain just like you do.

     Here are the Destiny 2 Trials rewards this week

Bungie's pinnacle PvP activity is back in rotation with a major revamp, and if you're looking for details on the Destiny 2 Trials rewards this week, you've come to the right place. Before you start working your way up through the ladder, you'll want to know what you're actually working for - so here's a breakdown of what's available each week, and what map you'll be playing on.

If you're not familiar with Trials of Osiris, it's a weekly PvP challenge where you enter a competitive gauntlet of 3v3 elimination matches. Your rewards are now doled out with a reputation system, so it's not about pure wins anymore, but you will still get special rewards if you can manage to go flawless.

Trials lands with the reset every Friday at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST, and lasts until the Tuesday reset at those same times. Each week provides a new set of rewards and a new map to play on, so here's what you can expect for the latest rotation.

     Here's where Xur is in Destiny 2 today

Xûr is Destiny 2's Exotic gear merchant. He appears every weekend to sell the game's most coveted items in exchange for Legendary shards, but if you're a casual player with limited shards to spend, it can be hard to know which of his wares is most worth your investment. That's where we come in.

As of June 12, 2020, it appears that Xûr is back to providing random rolls - so the Exotic merchant is providing more excitement than he has in a long time. Xûr appears every Friday at 10am PDT / 1pm EDT / 6pm BST, and will stick around until the Tuesday reset. We'll update this guide shortly after he arrives, so if you're reading this, you need only read on to learn where he is, and which are the best items he's selling this week.

Now we're in Beyond Light territory, but Xûr's first appearances have been at the usual spots - so maybe don't expect too many surprises from the merchant in the new year of Destiny content.

     Best Warzone loadout drop: top setups for Season 4

On the lookout for the best Warzone loadout? Now that the Vanguard Royale and Battle Royale playlists have been merged together to create one unified battle royale game, this means there are over 100 different weapons to pick from to build your perfect loadout drop.

Despite the plentiful ground loot in Caldera's hot zones, you'll want a reliable build to help you take out the opposition as you try to outrun the encroaching gas cloud. Using create-a-class system from Vanguard's multiplayer mode in Warzone, you can customise your weapons with attachments, tactical equipment, and perks to create the best Warzone loadouts.

Our best Warzone setups differ from our favourite builds for Vanguard's multiplayer mode as they're optimised for Caldera's vast environments. Not only do the weapons in Warzone feature tweaked stats, but we also have to take into consideration Warzone's armour plates and the additional player count. We've used our extensive knowledge of Warzone to pass on our victory prowess to you - use our best loadouts for Warzone to dominate the competition.

     How to craft and use a Raft Recycler

The Raft Recycler is one of the most important crafting stations in the entire game. Why? Because it can make you the wealthiest castaway on the seven seas. Want to impress your friends with a fridge? A shiny Pirate Hat? Or maybe a Viking Horn? Building the Recycler is your first step.

It's not too difficult to understand, because the Raft Recycler does pretty much exactly what the name suggests: it gets rid of spare items and turns them into Trash Cubes, which can then be exchanged at Trading Posts (in return for said Pirate Hat). So essentially, you'll need a Recycler to obtain a whole plethora of items, including Trade Coins, which are the currency used at these Trading Posts.

     FFXIV's Yoshi-P: accessibility training

Since Final Fantasy XIV producer Naoki Yoshida recently reaffirmed Square Enix's stance against the use of third party tools for the popular MMORPG, players have been fervently discussing use cases for UI mods such as colour blind accessibility tools which they feel are not currently well supported by FFXIV's in-game options. PCGamesN spoke to Yoshida about how his team's development process factors in accessibility considerations, and some of the possible solutions that are being considered for the fantasy game's future.

Final Fantasy XIV does a lot of things well in the accessibility space, including full controller support and extensive HUD placement and scaling options. However, its colour blind accessibility tools are quite limited. Currently, the game offers filters for the three forms of dichromatic colour blindness - deuteranopia, protanopia, and tritanopia - with sliders to change their intensity. Players can also manually customise the colours of almost all text in the game, but no option is provided to do the same for other UI elements.

Colour blind players such as Reddit user ReviloD18 have spoken about their difficulties reading mid-combat tells such as ground AoE markers and tethers, which can appear very close in colour to the ground they are displayed over. This issue isn't necessarily exclusive to colour blind players, either - the recently released Pandemonium Asphodelos: The Third Circle Savage raid fight was criticised by some for having an almost entirely red and orange colour palette, making AoE markers difficult to see as well as causing general eye strain for some players over extended periods of play.

     How to get Raft Trash Cubes and trade them for items

Raft Trash Cubes don't sound particularly important, but believe it or not, they are the main currency used in these open waters. Without them, you can't buy anything at the Trading Posts, and that's a pity, because Trading Posts hold some of the best items in the game. Sunglasses, a game of tic-tac-toe, a sailor hat… You name it.

Trading Posts spawn on large islands. They're quite common, so there's a good chance you've already found one. If so, simply click on the store's counter to see how many Raft Trash Cubes each item costs. Note that Trading Post items are divided over three tiers: the higher your reputation level, the better the items you can buy.

     Best Warzone guns: the top weapons for Season 4

Want to know what the best Warzone guns are? Warzone Season 2 Reloaded completely changed the battle royale game by unifying the Vanguard Royale and Battle Royale playlists together. This means players no longer have to use Vanguard weapons if they own any of the guns from Modern Warfare and Black Ops Cold War, and we're continuing to reap the rewards in Season 3 Reloaded. Rebirth Island has also gone through radical changes, adding new areas to encourage players to explore the map.

Picking out the best Call of Duty Warzone weapons can be difficult, especially with over 100 different options to pick from across three games. The latest weapons added to the FPS game are usually underpowered to avoid them dominating the meta early on, but we highly recommend unlocking every weapon as early as possible. Occasionally there's one or two weapons that manage to launch with completely broken stats, so it's worth keeping an eye on this page to find out which guns are currently performing well.

Warzone is surprisingly well balanced these days, but there's always going to be a few outliers that manage to outperform the rest of the guns in their weapon type. Here's everything you need to pick the best Warzone guns.

     How to unlock new Raft characters

Want to unlock new Raft characters? The shark-infested survival game starts out with just two characters, but you can unlock four additional ones by playing through the story. That may actually answer another one of your questions if you're new to the game: yes, Raft has a storyline.

It's important to note that Raft characters do not have any special abilities. But there are still a couple of reasons why you should collect them. Firstly, you're going to come across them anyway, so you might as well pick them up (warning: they're easily missed). Secondly, if you're playing with friends, it's way easier to tell each other apart if you don't all look the same.

It's important to know before starting your Raft character hunt: once you unlock a character in one save file, they'll be unlocked forever. If you're playing with friends, they will also automatically unlock the characters you encounter. However, if someone else joins after you've spoken to a new character, they still need to do the same. You can change your character in the main menu before starting a game.

     Minecraft's new moderation features have some players worried

Minecraft is a place for players to express themselves in many different ways. You can play using the space as a Dungeons & Dragons map, choose to recreate your favourite games, or just hang out with friends. It's probably because of this that the new moderation tools have some people worried.

Let's be clear about this: moderation tools are pretty much essential on the internet because you literally can't trust people not to be the absolute worst if given the chance. However, they also have to work, and a few Redditors have posted their thoughts on things, and frankly, they're not impressed at all. Probably the most in-depth post on the matter comes from JewelTK, who put a video up to talk about it from their perspective as someone that hosts a few servers.

     How to get the Raft Temperance code

Looking for the Raft Temperance code? This snowy island is a new landmark in the ocean-based survival game Raft. The vast, icy region becomes an important location near the end of the main storyline, but in order to reach it, you have to find the coordinates. As the location code is randomised, we can't just give you a number; you have to find it yourself. No worries, this Temperance guide will lend you a hand.

And it's not just about getting to the island, once there you'll likely find yourself searching for a Raft Temperance code in order to finish the island's main story and reach Utopia. The Temperance coordinates are hidden in the previous landmark location: Varuna Point. This note is inside the lower building, but you need to use the large crane to create an opening. Since the crane is missing its Crane Key, your first task is to explore the larger building until you find it. Dive into the water and look for the colourful jellyfish to find the entrance.

Once you've got the Crane Key, climb up the Crane and throw the boulder. Then use a zip line to land on the smaller island, where you'll find the Temperance coordinates laying on top of a desk in one of the lower rooms. Time to go back to your Raft and set sail for the Temperance!

Elden Ring has been out in the wild for several months now, but developer From Software still has more up its sleeve. In a new interview, Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki says From is currently in the "final stages" of development on its next game, which may be a new Armored Core title - or something else entirely.

Speaking with the Japanese language site 4Gamers, Miyazaki says (through a rough Google translation) that at least since From Software was making Sekiro, the studio has maintained around 'three and a half' in-house production lines at a time. One of those was, of course, Elden Ring, and another is currently coming close to completion.

     Best SMG Warzone: the top SMGs in Season 4

Looking for the best SMGs in Warzone? Caldera, the new Warzone map, has completely changed the way the battle royale game is played. Compared to Verdansk's large open spaces spread throughout the map, Caldera is much tighter overall, packing each area with unique points of interest to keep things interesting. As a result, long range battles aren't as prevalent, causing weapons types like the best AR in Warzone and SMGs to dominate the meta.

If you're still trying to pick off enemies from a distance using the best snipers, you need to have a reliable secondary weapon like the best SMGs in Warzone to immediately blast any flankers away. Don't forget to check out our best Warzone loadouts guide to see which attachments you need to build these game-breaking setups.

Have the Diablo Immortal Hidden Lair locations been eluding you? If you've been playing Blizzard's mobile RPG game for any length of time, you've probably become very familiar with one particular notification: 'A Hidden Lair has opened in this zone'. Their locations may not be immediately apparent, but don't be tempted to ignore them. Regardless of what Diablo Immortal class you are, they are well worth investigating for the upgrades they can provide.

If you've been tripped up by Diablo Immortal Hidden Lairs, much like a lot of new players to this free-to-play loot bonanza, this guide is what you need. There are 82 Hidden Lairs in total throughout the game, split across eight different zones. We've got the details on all the Hidden Lair locations below, followed by an explanation of what Hidden Lairs actually are, how they can disguise themselves in different zones, rewards for beating them, and general tips to get through them.

     Best sniper Warzone: the best sniper rifle in Season 4

Want to know what the best sniper rifle is in Warzone? There are plenty of options to pick from in the battle royale game, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as a sniper rifle. While this weapon type used to be a sure-fire pick for players back when Verdansk was around, that hasn't been the case since new Warzone map was introduced. That's not to say sniping is dead, far from it, but you do have to think carefully about your surroundings before calling in the best Warzone loadouts.

The Warzone Season 3 update drastically changes how one-shot kills work. Warzone now uses damage range to calculate each bullet's total damage when it hits an enemy player. As a result, you should avoid picking rifles without any potential for headshot kills with a single bullet, as they cannot compete with the best snipers in Warzone. Season 4 has improved several aggressive sniper rifles by adjusting the flinch settings, making these weapons easier to control.

There are a lot of factors to consider, including which attachments you choose to equip your chosen Warzone sniper with, how confident you are at judging travel time, and what your peeking skills are like. We've analysed the lot to give you the definitive answer on which Warzone sniper is best for your playing style.

The old school FPS revival has largely left me cold, if I'm honest. Even the ones I've enjoyed tend to get old within an hour. Most of the things that get recreated aren't the things I miss about 90s games, and if they were... Doom still exists, you know? So does Blood, and Strife, and Quake was never that good anyway.

Extraneum is good, though. I think it's precisely because it's not doing a big song and dance about its influences, although those are very clear. It's not big or brash, nor overly stripped down or obnoxious about difficulty. Clean blasty strafey fun, with a tiniest hint of horror. In an odd way, it's all the more faithful for that.

In the giant jumbled word cloud of all my qualities and traits, I'm willing to bet that "pluviophile" would be one of the biggest words. I adore rain. Whenever it starts, I tend to drop whatever I'm doing - work, dishes, significant other - and I'll be out frolicking in the downpour before they've hit the floor.

Because I love rain so much, I hold games to an almost unfair standard when it comes to the simulation of precipitation. How in the world can a videogame come close to emulating that wonderful, transcendental feeling of being outside in the middle of a thunderstorm? The answer is, it can't. Games have to rely on other things, like textures, sounds, and clever little animations to really sell the idea of being out amongst the H₂s and the Os.

The time has come, fellow pluviophiles. It's time to grade the very best rain that PC gaming has to offer. Below you'll find our eight worthy contenders. Each has been chosen for their spectacular rendition of one of nature's greatest phenomena. Each one shall be marked according to my patented and cutting-edge WIPERS grading system for digital rain.

Fishing Paradiso Understands What's Fun About Fishing Games

What springs to mind when you think of the afterlife? Is it a peaceful, relaxing place? A space that allows someone to take their time, meet friendly people and take part in an activity they enjoy? The heaven depicted in the new Switch game Fishing Paradiso takes that approach. While it can be relatively simple, it's also soothing and best approached at someone's own pace.

The game begins with the player approaching an amorphous form in space. You died! But it's okay, because you're in heaven. Which initially is a small island in a relaxing ocean with a bird companion by your side. What comes next is finding a way to get settled, make some friends, and learn more about your past life and current one. All while you fish, of course.

Fishing Paradiso Understands What's Fun About Fishing Games

The first reason Fishing Paradiso works so well is that it doesn't try to insert any gimmicks into its fishing mechanics. You move the directional pad left or right to choose where you'll cast. You press one button to cast. You press that same button to hook a fish. While there's no audible cue, there is a very clear visual one. When you reel a fish in on the Switch in Fishing Paradiso, you clearly see the current tension and can gauge the distance from your avatar. It's simple and works well. If you get a coin bonus, it even makes it more profitable.

It's also clear when it comes to keeping track of what you catch. When you go to an area, it immediately shows if the fish you need are there. A blue shadow means it is one needed for a campaign quest. A red one means you should catch it for a side quest. While the aiming mechanic isn't the most precise, most movement patterns mean you have a pretty good chance of only attracting the fish you're trying to catch. It alleviates saves a lot of time. Which is helpful, since otherwise it could feel like busywork going for X number of Y fish. Some tedium does creep in after a few hours of play. This is because you might need a specific rank of fish, and waiting to finally get it

Fishing Paradiso Understands What's Fun About Fishing Games

I also appreciated how Fishing Paradiso's upgrades feel tangible. You get coins from catching fish or completing quests. This can be used to upgrade five areas. These are Big Hunter, Charm, Stamina, Tension, and Throw. Every one has four "bars" to invest in before you can pay for a big upgrade to a higher tier. When you do that, the icon associated with that stat changes to indicate the change in power. When this happens, the improvement is substantial. However, this does mean that the fishing itself is more simplistic than in other games. Rather than acquiring things like new rods, reels, lures, or bait, you're relying on general improvements.

There's not only a sense of progression with the story, fishing spots, and stats. It's also present with regards to characters and relationships. You build up friendships via quests. You see people from Bear's Restaurant. There's continuity here. Yes, some lines read awkwardly or feel clipped. But it is still an amusing, charming, and generally solid localization. These folks have personality.

Fishing Paradiso Understands What's Fun About Fishing Games

Charming is also a good way to describe its art. Fishing Paradiso involves some pretty pixels! Some character designs may be simple, but they're effective. You aren't exploring huge areas, but there's undeniable ambiance in each one. You'd expect Heaven to be a pleasant enough place and, sure enough, this game's vision of it is.

Fishing Paradiso isn't the fishing game for folks who want something technical or realistic. It's the one you get if you like fishing in Animal Crossing or Story of Seasons. Which is fine, because a lot of people could probably use that kind of game. It is simple and sometimes not the most polished, but it is enjoyable.

Fishing Paradiso is available for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile devices.

The new JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R trailer offers a look at Baron Will Anthonio Zeppeli from Phantom Blood

The next JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R character trailer appeared. This time, it's for one of the more notable members of the first part of the series. People can now see how JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Phantom Blood's Baron Will Anthonio Zeppeli looks in the game.

As Will Zeppeli hails from one of the earlier JoJo's Bizarre Adventure arcs, it means he doesn't fight using a stand. Rather, he's a Ripple Master. He's the one who helps Jonathan Joestar master the art in that storyline. He only appears in Phantom Blood.

We're now at 15 JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R character trailers so far. Here are the other 14.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle R will appear on September 2, 2022. It will be available on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC.

Final Fantasy Record Keeper Shutting Down Outside Japan

Square Enix will end service for another Final Fantasy mobile game. It revealed Final Fantasy Record Keeper is shutting down. First, folks won't be able to purchase gems as of August 30, 2022. Then, the game itself will close on September 29, 2022. The Japanese Twitter account for the title remains active.

In order to see any of the notices about how Final Fantasy Record Keeper will be shutting down, people need to download the game. In addition to the two dates related to the end of its service, messages from Producer Ichiro Hazama and Development Producer Yu Sasaki appear. Neither explains why the Final Fantasy mobile game will no longer appear outside Japan.

Here is Hazama's message.

Hello! This is Ichiro Hazama from SQEX.

Well, everyone. Have you played FFRK to your heart's content?

For me, this project has been a treasure trove brimming with the limitless wonders of the FF series.

Of course, it could never convey all of the charm found in the FF games.

But I'd like to think we were able to bring you glimpses of its iconic pixel graphics, music, incredible battle systems, and so much more.

Seven years ago when it all started, you could count the number of characters in the game, and the strategic elements were still relatively simple.

But thanks to the many people at DeNA, and of course all of you, the players, we were able to create the game you know today.

Words cannot express the gratitude I feel, but nevertheless, allow me to sincerely thank you all for everything over these many years!

Someday, I hope our paths will cross again.

Until then!

And here is Sasaki's message from the game. This farewell message acknowledges the game has been running globally since March 2015. As a point of reference, the Japanese version started service in September 2014.

I would like to sincerely thank all of our FFRK players, past and present. Without each of you who played the game, we would never have been able to keep it going for over seven years.

Pixel art is a personal favorite of mine, so it's been my pleasure during the past seven years to be able to bring you pixel art versions of so many moments from past Final Fantasy games, as well as the adventures of Tyro and his friends.

As the Final Fantasy series celebrates its 35th year, I have no doubt it will continue to bring us the amazing stories it's known for. I hope you'll continue to enjoy these stories for years to come. Thank you so much for being a part of it!

Final Fantasy Record Keeper will be shutting down outside Japan on September 29, 2022. The Japanese version seems like it will remain in operation.

    FFVII Remake Development Team Discusses Sephiroth Early Appearances

    In honor of the Final Fantasy VII 25th anniversary, Square Enix's released a number of announcements and new details about the entry and its games. Most recent is a FFVII Remake official interview discussing Sephiroth and various design decisions. Most notably, it talks about design decisions relating to his appearance visually and in the story.

    Editor's Note: There are spoilers pertaining to Sephiroth and FFVII Remake chapter two below.

    The interview with development team members went over various parts of Sephiroth's appearance in FFVII Remake chapter two. For example, it goes over the lighting for the scenes, him showing up earlier in the story than expected, and the early Nibelheim flashbacks. Scenario Designer Co-Director Motomu Toriyama first explained it was to show Sephiroth's prominence in this retelling and Cloud's life.

    Here's Toriyama's statement.

    There was the intention to show the effect that a most likely imagined Sephiroth had on Cloud's mind at an early stage, but his earlier appearance was also because his existence had a massive influence on the world of Remake itself.

    Additional commnts went over their appearances. Graphics and VFX Director Shintaro Takai noted special shaders for the Nibelheim flashbacks were designed to make "memories are distorted" and "feel like an illusion." The Lighting Director Iichiro Yamaguchi also noted the use of lighting with the flames to create tension and make sure Cloud and Sephiroth "did not look too flat."

    Final Fantasy VII Remake is available for the PlayStation 4. FFVII Remake Intergrade is available for the PlayStation 5 and PC. FFVII Rebirth will appear on the PS5 in 2023.

    dragon ball super super hero movie header

    For a limited time, the first five minutes of the upcoming Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie is available on YouTube. It will be available until June 26, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. JST. That would be 7:59 a.m. PT/10:59 a.m. ET/4:59 p.m. CET on the same day. However, the video is only available in Japan. This means viewers will need to physically be in the country or use a VPN. [Thanks, ryokutya2089!]

    The movie starts with a recap of when Goku annihilated the Red Ribbon Army, as well as the creation of the Androids. It also very briefly summarizes events from the Cell Games Saga before it begins in earnest. The rest of the scene focuses on the Red Ribbon Army's attempts to find and recruit Doctor Hedo, who is a descendant of Doctor Gero. Unfortunately, Doctor Hedo is in prison, and they must wait three months before he is free. The video then ends.


    This scene gives viewers a good look at some of the new characters from the Red Ribbon Army who will appear in Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero. The majority of the scene features Magenta and Carmine, as Doctor Hedo is in jail. The movie will introduce two more characters, Gamma 1 and Gamma 2, though they are not in the scene.

    Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is available in theaters in Japan, and it will release in most international countries in August 2022. Those in Hong Kong, Macao, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand will be able to watch it in September 2022.

         Halo Master Chief Collection protagonist Spartan343 Industries has not earned a lot of goodwill from fans as of late. Although Halo Infinite earned a fairly positive reception at launch, that initial honeymoon phase ended quickly, as players grew annoyed over the game's lackluster multiplayer offerings and sparse updates. Recent PR blunders, such as a recent cosmetic made to celebrate Juneteenth that used an offensive name, did not help matters. Now, it looks like 343 has committed itself to harming its reputation even further, as a recent community update revealed that the developer has considered implementing microtransactions into Halo: The Master Chief Collection. Although the community update mostly covers current and future additions to Halo Infinite and Halo: The Master Chief Collection, the microtransaction news easily overshadows them. These microtransactions, if implemented, would come in the form of purchasable Spartan Points, previously known as Season Points.   Why now? The update tries to justify this p...

However, it's no longer on its lonesome, as the remakes of Resident Evils 2 and 3, along with Resident Evil 7, have all now received the same treatment. Updates for all three games rolled out last week and, naturally, there were some issues from people playing the games on weaker hardware. Capcom quickly responded by offering a branch containing previous versions of the games. This piece compares the main branch versions of all three games with ray tracing both off and on, as well as pictures of each game's menu. As all three Resident Evil games run on the same engine and received the exact same updates, it isn't any surprise that the offerings here have parity across games. Across the three, ray tracing can't be turned on and off while in-game, so settings can only be altered in the main menu. Naturally, this made taking exact comparison shots hard...

AMD addressed this concern in a recent interview with Tom's Hardware, confirming higher power consumption for RDNA 3 graphics cards, with an emphasis on the increased efficiency that will come with it.

         Overwatch 2 CosmeticsOverwatch 2 has a lot to prove when it comes to gameplay, progression, and cosmetics. Overwatch was a shining star for the first-person shooter genre when it was released in 2016. It was a best-in-class, hero-based multiplayer game that spawned legions of dedicated fans, myself included, who genuinely cared about its lore, maps, heroes, and updates. Then, after a certain point, the momentum shifted for the worse. Developer Blizzard Entertainment stopped providing significant updates to the game, Lead Director Jeff Kaplan left, and recent allegations have ruined the image of the company. With all of that in mind, it's been hard for fans to feel excited about a full-blown sequel that doesn't even feel necessary. Overwatch 2 is nearly upon us, and Blizzard has been trying to build back some goodwill with announcements like a shift to a free-to-play model and seasonal content. That certainly lowers the barrier to entry, and it could help to pull Overwatch fans back in. However, this ne...
