Perhaps you’ll find this amusing, and it once again illustrates just how little attention I pay to gaming news. I saw a short video of Starlink: Battle for Atlas a while ago and thought, huh, that looks pretty cool. Maybe I’ll buy it when it comes out.
I then proceeded to forget about it until it showed up in the Switch’s eShop. I bough the deluxe digital version, waited for it to download and then fired it up. The first thing it told me to do is attach one of my Starlink toys to my special contoller, and there’s me, like, wait, what now? Yes, I admit it, I didn’t know Starlink was a “toys to life” game, as they call them – and I swear, the Nintendo eShop doesn’t say a damn thing about it, go and look for yourselves.
NVIDIA this week announced a new version of the GeForce GXT 1060, making it the seventh iteration of this specific GPU model from the company. The GTX 1060 is by far NVIDIA’s best-selling card, commanding almost 14% market share on the Steam Hardware Survey, and the cheapest way to break into 1440p gaming for NVIDIA fans. NVIDIA has also taken it through several redesigns, first basing it on a different die (GP106), then introducing another one based on GP104, then cutting the card down to create the GTX 1060 3GB, and finally launching a new model with 9Gbps GDDR5 memory. As versatile as the card is, it’s always suffered from a memory bandwidth bottleneck. That’s where the new GTX 1060 comes in.
Bethesda has confirmed the schedule for the first test phase of the game’s somewhat unconventional Break-it Early Test Application – beta, it’s a beta, guys – which starts today on Xbox One. If you live on the other side of the planet, anyway. For everybody else, it’s tomorrow morning, but early tomorrow morning. Like early-you’re-going-to-need-a-sick-note tomorrow morning.
According to rumours on the internet that are now just hours old, Intel may have abandoned their oft-delayed 10nm production process, and will be heading into 2019 without a long-term roadmap that includes significant 10nm capacity.
I’ve been a fan of the Soul Calibur series since I first encountered it in arcades back in 1995 and it was still called Soul Edge. That was before a nasty man named Tim Langdell screwed that up for everyone, forcing Namco to change the second part the name to “Calibur” in future games to make the title unified in all regions again. If you don’t know about that, then look it up, it’s a funny story.
In this week’s episode of You Can’t Make This Stuff Up, Capcom has announced some ludicrously expensive limited editions of its upcoming smash-’em-up vogue sim Devil May Cry 5, which aren’t available outside of Japan for your own safety.
Back or forward, though, since Fallout 76 is a prequel on the franchise’s post-apocalyptic timeline? Whatever, semantics, and besides – the real question is whether or not this means we’re getting Vertibirds.
Okay, so he didn’t actually delete Fortnite, it’s a joke, but… would it be such a bad thing if he did? I mean, it’s probably more useful than a cyborg dragon, although I guess a robot apocalypse would solve this problem at the same time, anyway.
