Campaign Play Comes Back to Call of Duty, and it Could be Another Modern Warfare

If you’re like a lot of people and are just tired of futuristic shooters, then the 2019 Call of Duty release could be the bandage that finally heals your wound. The news broke during an earnings call with investors – the same one that announced the firing of 800 employees – and it was said that Call of Duty could continue with its usual three-year development cycle. That means that Infinity Ward is taking the reigns on this year's release and it’s been said that the new game will be “rooted” in franchise history. That says a lot but, at the same time, Infinity Ward hasn’t exactly wowed the world with the last few CoD games. How do you climb out of that hole? Well, you bring back a fan favorite – Modern Warfare. I wouldn’t hold my breath for a reboot of Modern Warfare II, despite the fact that many of us would love to see it, but it could end up being just as good if not better. Now, all of these does coincide with rumors and...

THE ROG ZEPHYRUS S (GX531) TAKES SLIM AND POWER TO ALL-NEW LEVELS

At a mere 14.95~15.75mm thin, Zephyrus S is 12% slimmer than the original Zephyrus (GX501). It’s equipped with the latest Intel® Core™ i7-8750H CPU and up to NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1070 Max-Q graphics, making it ideal for work or play. Super-narrow bezels squeeze a 15.6-inch display, with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response time, into a 14.2-inch chassis. The all-metal chassis is strong enough to meet military-grade durability standards without compromising on design, with sleek lines and a premium finish. An advanced cooling system ensures optimal performance of all components, incorporating the proprietary Active Aerodynamic System (AAS) — a design and engineering hallmark of the Zephyrus series. ALL-METAL CHASSIS COMBINES DESIGN WITH FUNCTION  One of the biggest challenges with creating such a thin laptop is making sure that the chassis strikes the best balance between strength and weight: Zephyrus S uses a mix of aluminum and magnesium alloys in its construction to achieve this balance. Each lid is meticulously...

BioWare’s Anthem VIP Demo Weekend Didn’t Go Well, and There’s a Huge List of Fixes Coming for the Full Game

Anthem’s VIP demo kicked off last Friday and lasted through the weekend, but many found it too troublesome to even play. Some players couldn’t get in, and those that did, experienced all kinds of issues ranging from lack of overall performance to crashing. BioWare, naturally, sprung into action to address concerns for those on PCs but, at the end of the day, it wouldn’t be good enough, as there were also server capacity issues at hand. Fortunately, this was only a VIP demo, and there’s still a public demo on the way. That will give some players a better chance to get in and slaughter some grabbits, but don’t expect it to be a problem-free experience either. Accord to Chad Robertson, BioWare’s Head of Live Service, Claims there’s a lot of work that still needs to be done after an “eventful” weekend. In a summary of the weekend, he said that severs were stabilized on Saturday afternoon and his team managed to maintain that stability through the rest of the VIP demo period. The servers turned off Sunday evening as the Live Service...

Metro Exodus Developer Claims the Next Metro Won’t Come to PC After Bad Reviews; Metro Publishers Quickly Put Him in His Place

After it was announced that Metro Exodus would be released through the Epic Games Store as opposed to Steam, PC gamers all over the world went on digital strike. It took just minutes for bad reviews to start showing up on steam as everyone tried to protest the change in release platform. Boycotting of the game has been in full effect since, with Steam taking hundreds of bad reviews for Metro Exodus. Not long after that, a 4A Games developer that goes by the handle “scynet” on gameru forums posted a rant in Russian that included, among other things, a claim that if PC gamers boycott the game the next in the series certainly won’t make it to the PC. “But! Consider the situation deeper. Someone says that they say they crap Exodus and the previous games in the series, it will make the world better, they will put greedy developers in their place. To this, I can answer that in a pinch, if at all all the PC players announce a boycott of the Metro, then the next metro,...

ROG MOTHERSHIP COMES TO TAKE PC GAMING TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Desktop replacement laptops put incredible power in a portable package that you can take anywhere. They also make concessions to conform to a clamshell form factor that’s unnecessarily rigid for deployment on a desk. The legacy blueprint not only limits cooling, but also and locks you into a fixed position that’s really only required for use on a lap. That’s the last place you’ll find most desktop replacements, so we reimagined the form factor to raise your game. Instead of sitting flat, the ROG Mothership stands tall to draw more air into its advanced cooling system. Its keyboard detaches and folds to fit different scenarios, giving you the freedom to find the perfect position, and the innovative design leaves enough room to put all the speakers right below the screen. The exquisitely machined aluminum chassis frames an ultra-fast 144Hz/3ms G-Sync display powered by the latest NVIDIA GeForce RTX™ graphics and Intel® Core™ i9 processor. Better cooling allows us to push the CPU and GPU beyond stock speeds and still sustain...

A New Mod for Resident Evil 2 Gets Rid of Mr. X Completely

The remake of Resident Evil 2 is nothing short of dreams come true as we get to relive one of the greatest gaming stories of times past. The remake, however, features a new character known as Mr. X and opinions about him have been mixed at best. Some love the fact that he’s there as, after all, he’s scary as hell and this is a horror game. Others, however, say that he destroys the pace of the game altogether. It only took a few days before mods for Resident Evil 2 started coming out with two of the best being the DMX “X gonna give it to you” overlay and the mod that turned Mr. X into Thomas the Tank Engine. Fun mods aside, if he actually ruins the gameplay for you, there’s now a mod that can completely remove him from the game – like he never existed in the first place. The mod was created by MaVeRick, and it’s known simply as “X No More.” The coolest part about this mode is that it doesn’t break down scripted events...

THE ROG STRIX SCAR II 17-INCH HAS THINNER BEZELS AND MORE POWER

The Strix SCAR II puts an industry-leading 17.3-inch display — with a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms response time, and complete sRGB coverage — into a 15.7-inch chassis, delivering immersive visuals while allowing for greater mobility. Strix SCAR II GL704 is equipped with powerful components and innovative features including the latest 8th Generation Intel® processors — up to Core™ i7-8750H — and an NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 1060 GPU with 6GB of video RAM.

THE REPUBLIC OF GAMERS G703 CARRIES THE TORCH FOR DESKTOP REPLACEMENT CLAMSHELLS

This is mobile gaming at its finest! While the just introduced ROG Mothership represents the future, the ROG G703 takes the present into the next generation. It is powered by 8th Generation Intel® Core™ processors with an optional factory-overclocked Intel Core i9-8950HK processor for speeds of up to 4.8GHz. Sticking to a traditional 17” laptop form factor requires beefier cooling and a thicker chassis to achieve the same performance as its deep-breathing sibling. The larger heatsinks and fans are so effective that the G703 can keep up despite having much less room to breathe. ROG G703 features an IPS-level display with a 144Hz refresh rate, 3ms gray-to-gray (GTG) response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC™ technology, allowing for super smooth gameplay even on Ultra graphics settings. G703 also features HyperDrive Extreme storage, which uses exclusive technology to combine three NVMe™ PCI Express® (PCIe®) SSDs in RAID 0 configuration for read speeds of up to 8700MB/s — the fastest ever on a laptop.
