Stupid anti-gamer politics and cooties are back in the news, with Bethesda Game Studios boss Todd Howard citing Sony’s ongoing refusal to play nice with others as the reason for Fallout 76 not including cross-platform multiplayer.
Over the weekend, Fortnite hosted its debut one-time event, launching a missile into space to open up some sort of dimensional rift. Not wanting to miss it forever, most players observed a temporary truce, coordinating their efforts to build a viewing platform and enjoy the spectacle as a community.
Welcome to Mosh Pit, the show where everything has a price and your weekend has just started (and you’re still at work, gah!). That’s right, the weekend has started, but only for those Capetownians who somehow get the right to slack of after three o’ clock because literally everyone is too chilled (actually, it’s more like noon – Cape Town ed). Those of you in Durbs and Gauteng still have to look busy for the next hour or so. This week we have a few game sales, nerdy t-shirts from Raru, cheap mobile data, and super-cheap solid state drives. Hit the jump.
Cooler Master’s TUF family extends to a whole range of components that make up almost an entire PC (almost, because the only thing missing is TUF-branded 2.5-inch and M.2 solid state drives), and that also includes the new MasterWatt TUF range. These are semi-modular power supplies painted to match the exterior colour of the MasterWatt MB500 TUF Edition, and is also covered in ASUS’s custom-designed digi-camo vinyl wrap. Writing about power supplies in a sexy way is difficult, so hit the jump to see me try.
Movies based on video games may be consistently and notoriously terrible, but video games based on movies historically haven’t fared much better. A lot of that comes down to publishers rushing a game to get it on shelves before the related film is irrelevant, or hammering any piece of trash together just so they can slap the movie’s title on the box. A license like Jurassic Park (or World, as you kids call it these days) should be an easy sell when it comes to video game tie-in, yet no one has ever really done the brand justice. I put it to you now that Frontier has cracked it here with Jurassic World Evolution, largely because the game eschews the traditional film tie-in tropes, and takes a different route altogether.
Cooler Master has been a master case builder for a little over two decades, and their 2018 lineup has been quite interesting, particularly with returning favorites like the Cosmos C700M and the MasterBox family bringing back old internal designs that were fan favourites. Partnering up with ASUS, Cooler Master has designed and released a set of products in the new TUF series to go along with ASUS’s TUF motherboard family. Cue some video shots of money flying everywhere and Wiz Kalifa’s “Black and Yellow” on the backing track to complete the mental image in your head right now after looking at the MasterBox MB500 TUF Edition.
RGB is one of those things that I can’t fathom why it’s popular, but damn is it ever popular. Cooler Master’s MasterAir MA410M TUF has so many RGB LEDs that it might have more than the average computer. This is Cooler Master’s second cooler in the TUF family, the first being the MasterAir MA620P TUF for high-end desktop processors. If you wanted your CPU cooler to have more colours than Rainbow Dash and push through enough air to blow-dry your hair, this is the cooler for you.
Showing up at the expo for the first time since it was announced in 2012, Cyberpunk 2077 was one of the most megahyped things at E3 this year – but mostly from backstage. Although a new trailer was debuted during the Xbox presser, the game’s demo was kept off-limits to the public because it’s not ready for that kind of inevitable controversy.
