Current And Upcoming PC Games That Support Nvidia's DLSS

Nvidia’s DLSS or Deep Learning Super Sampling is easily one of the best innovations for gaming on a PC. With DLSS 1.0 and the newer DLSS 2.0, Nvidia has provided a graphical punch that makes games look as good as they would in their native resolution and provides a better level of performance. Recently, Nvidia double-downed with the technology and announced during GTC 2021 that DLSS would make its way into the Unity game engine. Expect this to happen before 2021 ends. DLSS is already supposed i

The House of the Dead: Remake Confirmed For The Switch

I don’t know about you, but I really miss light gun games. More specially, Sega’s The House of the Dead series, but thankfully that’s all going to change.

PS5 April 2021 Update Adds Support For External USB Storage

No, you still can’t play PS5 games off the USB storage. PlayStation has outlined its plans for the PS5 April update, rolling out as of April 14th, 2021. Included is a feature that many PS5 owners have been asking for; PS5 external USB storage support. As you know, when the PS5 first was released, you could only install PS5 games onto the limited internal storage. So you can imagine why this update will be a breath of fresh air for all PS5 owners. This is fantastic news, as it means that we won

Steam Version Of Nier Automata Is Finally Getting Patched

After all these years, the Steam version of Nier Automata is getting patched. It’s a game that needed a patch ever since it was released due to performance-related issues but never received one. Instead, the 3rd party tool “FAR“, was created so that the game could be playable for most. Now, out of nowhere, a tweet from the official Nier Twitter account posted a message that the Steam version is getting patched. This is likely due to the Windows Store version of the game being released via Xbox

New Ghostrunner DLC Metal Ox Pack Appears On The Epic Games Store

A new DLC for the acclaimed title, Ghostrunner, has appeared on the Epic Games Store. As it’s called, the Metal Ox Pack showed up out of now where and is priced at $4.99. The funny thing about this DLC is that I don’t believe that this was announced before it showing up. The Ghostrunner Metal Ox pack also doesn’t appear to be live on either the PlayStation Network or Xbox Live. It looks like this was either a mistake, or Epic Games jumped the gun. Either way, you can download it via the PC. Li

Jordan Vogt-Roberts Set To Direct The Live-Action Gundam Film

Look who’s getting into the damned robot. Just announced by Netflix, Jordan Vogt-Roberts, is now on board to direct and produce the live-action Gundam film. If you’re a Gundam fan, like I am, you’ve likely been wondering what the heck has been going on with the live-action adaptation. It’s been a while since it was announced, and yet we haven’t heard much of anything. The live-action adaption was originally announced by Sunrise and Legendary Pictures during the 2018 Anime Expo.

You Can Still Farm Legendaries In Outriders After The Update

When People Can Fly released the 1.05 patch notes for Outriders, it was assumed that they also put an end to the legendary item farming methods people used. However, after checking this out for myself, that doesn’t appear to be the case. At least for now, I can still farm with minimum effort, and so can you. This can be done via the monster hunt questline, which for now is still repeatable. I don’t know if this will remain, so it’s best to take advantage of this before it does actually go away.

Outriders Inventory Wipe Glitch Has Soured My Enjoyment Of The Game

If you hadn’t already known, I have been enjoying my time with Square Enix’s and People Can Fly’s title, Outriders. The gameplay is fun, the modding system is the best I’ve seen in any game, and even at 80 hours in, I feel as if I’ve only scratched the surface. However, due to certain issues, my enjoyment of the game has soured. More specifically, the ongoing issue that results in the character’s entire inventories being wipes. Gone. Like it never existed. And that, my friends, is a potential de

Outriders Needs An In-Game Session Browser

With over 80 hours of Outriders under my belt, I’ve already started my review of the game. At the same time, I’ve found myself looking at ways that People Can Fly could make the game better. Now, there’s a pretty long list, and I won’t go into it all here, but you can check out my article that talks about that. However, one of those ideas is to add an in-game session browser. Why? Let me explain. Multiplayer, both the expeditions and co-op story progression all work off of randomness. And that

The Ultimate Optimus Prime Toy Has Been Created And I Want It

I’m a big kid; I’m sure many of you already know this. I like my anime, video games, Gundam, and more specifically, I freaking LOVE TRANSFORMERS. I have ever since the OG Transformers cartoon aired on TV decades ago and when my Father took me to Toys “R” Us to purchase my very first Optimus Prime. I’ll never forget that or him. Needless to say, when I saw the news of a self-transforming Optimus Prime toy that Hasbro is selling and created by Robosen Robotics. I had to check it out. If you’ve ne

But that hasn’t deterred People Can Fly, who has been working around the clock. Now the developer has announced a major patch that’s being worked on. This patch will address several issues, including re-enabling the cross

It’s been a long time coming, but the news surrounding the Streets of Rage 4 DLC has been revealed, and I’m super excited for it. We really enjoyed Streets of Rage 4, and ever since the DLC was teased, we were waiting for Dotemu to drop more news. Mr. X Nightmare, as it’s being called, looks to have the cast of Streets of Rage 4 entering virtual reality as they face off against an old foe.
