PC players looking forward to playing Gotham Knights are going to need a fairly beefy PC if they hope to obtain 60 fps at resolutions above 1080p.

Did you see our post a couple of days back about how you can now buy a Steam Deck straight from Valve without a reservation? (That's true, by the way; you can pick one up right from their store page and have it in a week or two.) In that post, we embedded Valve's YouTube video for the announcement, and while we...

The Steam Deck has been a smash hit. It's not flawless, but it's a very good value considering its capabilities. If you're out of the loop, it's a portable PC that can play Steam games on top of doing all the other usual PC things, and it's just $399 for the cheapest model.

If you haven't gotten a chance to put hands on one, Valve's Steam Deck is a pretty cool gaming device that has become wildly popular. It has its faults, though—its haptics rumble is weak, its display is lack-luster, and there's only one USB port on board. As such, OneXPlayer likely hopes that you may find those... Read more...

Video games are all violent, right? They're always about big, burly, buff men stomping around battlefields shooting at bad guys or monsters with ridiculously-oversized guns. Or if they're not about that, then they're about impossibly-proportioned buxom babes flouncing around fantasy fields, firing off fireballs or... Read more...
We're fans of GPD around here. The Shenzen-based startup has been successfully selling super-portable micro-PCs running full-fat Windows for half a decade now, and its latest model, the Win Max 2, looks to be its most powerful yet—even if it stretches the bounds of "portability" a bit. As you could surmise from the... Read more...

When we talk about modding third-person fantasy RPGs on the PC, you almost assuredly will start thinking about the Elder Scrolls series, and particularly Part V: Skyrim, with its enormous library of user mods.
