When the Steam Deck hit the scene, it entered a market already occupied by a handful of niche devices, including the AYANEO NEXT.

There... Read more...

Maybe you missed out on Prey when it first came out all the way back in 2006, and then again when Bethesda released a reboot developed by Arkane Studios (which it acquired in 2010) in 2017.

A bit of a recap for you: Souls is the short name of the FromSoftware series that predates Elden Ring.

If you're a hardcore desktop PC gamer, you probably sneer at framerate limiters. "Why would I want to limit the glorious power of my monster PC," you may ask, but for folks on thermally-, power-, or battery-constrained machines, framerate limiters can be a godsend. There's no need to crank out ≧60 FPS all the time... Read more...
For a long time, it seemed like Ron Gilbert would never have a chance to make another Monkey Island game.

We all have certain controller preferences, be it Sony's DualSense for the PlayStation 5 (my personal favorite), Microsoft's Elite Wireless Controller Series 2, or something else entirely.

Besides offering up chaotic open-world action, one thing that Rockstar's games have done ever since Grand Theft Auto III is push the envelope in terms of technology.
