Witcher in 4K photo

Look away from these 4K screens of The Witcher 3

If an image or video is tagged as 4K, yeah, I'm more than likely gonna click on it. Even if it's media showing a game at a level of graphical fidelity I can't possibly attain with my computer. Misery loves company, so please join me in look...

BioShock's opening moments recreated in CryEngine 3

I was all ready to freak out when I saw this homage to BioShock's opening sequence created in CryEngine 3. I figured, perhaps naively, that it would go beyond the lighthouse and deep into the ocean, all the way down to Rapture. But at just...

The GTA V update turned my character black

Okay, I admit: sometimes I do wish I were black. However, that desire never translated into the virtual gaming space because, I don't know, I guess I felt it didn't really represent me? Well, thanks to the recent Grand Theft Auto V update, ...

Seeing ships sliced apart in Star Citizen is satisfying

As a casual observer of Star Citizen, I've struggled to keep up to date with the game's open development. It can be overwhelming. That's why I appreciate this recent video covering the damage model -- it's accessible. Blowing up spaceships...

You saw Microsoft's crazy hologram headset, right?

Earlier today, Microsoft held a Windows 10 event. My stream kept dying, but I posted about the Battletoads shirt worn by head of Xbox Phil Spencer during his segment about gaming. Much of the event was uninteresting or irrelevant for this a...
