Three classic Razer mice in one neat little package? Yeah, that sums up the new Razer Naga Trinity which thanks to interchangeable side plates you can get the feel and functionality of the Razer DeathAdder Elite, Razer Hex V2, and of course the Naga. Aka the mouse with the bajillion side-buttons designed for the bajillions buttons you need in MMOs like World of Warcraft.
With fully customisable buttons, including a nifty left and right lean on the scroll wheel, and an industry-leading optical sensor, the Roccat Kone AIMO more than lives up to the device’s 10-year history. For gamers it’s a great all-rounder, feeling both natural and offering customisation options that make great use of its ergonomics.
In a deal worth €121 million or about $150 million USD, THQ Nordic will acquire Koch Media. Which includes Deep Silver, publisher of Saints Row, Dead Island and Metro. Which means that a lot of traditional THQ franchises will once again be released under that banner. With the acquisition THQ Nordic notes that Koch Media will continue to run as is, as a separate entity.
Indie developer developer Fatshark's Warhammer: End Times - Vermintide was a pleasant surprise when it first came out. A deep and rewarding Left 4 Dead style experience set in the Warhammer universe. Where the rat-like Skaven took the place of zombies. Today we learn that the highly anticipated sequel Warhammer: Vermintide 2, is due real soon. Like March 8 on PC soon.
In a surprise update to 2017 survival horror game The Evil Within 2, Bethesda and developer Tango Gameworks have added a first-person mode. Which means the entire game can now be played from this perspective. Thanks to a new trailer showcasing the new perspective it's clear that it looks incredibly immersive. And more intense than ever.
For those of us that got to play Sea of Thieves during the Technical Alpha stage or during the Closed Beta the core concept and sheer fun of sailing, hunting for treasure, without the modern trappings we see in other games was refreshing. To say the least. No quest markers, just the wits of you and your crew. Following a map and the direction of your ship’s compass.
One look at the launch trailer for Crossing Souls and you should definitely get it. The VHS artifacts, crude retro animation, bright neon colours, and setting that is all kids going on an adventure. But beneath the look and the wonderful pixel-art filled with seemingly countless references lies a pretty good story. And a heartfelt one too.
Remember that Destiny 2 winter event that kept the themed items and loot boxes (sorry, Engrams) behind a pay wall? Yeah, another lesson learned by Bungie as the new Crismson Days event, celebrating Valentines Day, rewards players with an Illuminated Engram and a Crimson Engram when they level up. How nice.
Including a 486 DX2 66 from the early 1990s! Okay, so that's a lie but Rare's first PC release has been developed to basically run on Intel and other CPUs with on-board graphics. Albeit at 540p and at the minimum "Cursed" level of detail. That being said it's cool to see that Sea of Thieves can run on just about any modern PC, and be totally playable too. Hit the jump for the full specs.
