Nvidia Resizable BAR support now ready, boosts fps for RTX 30 Series

One thing that gamers can never get enough of is framerate. The preference is well founded too, as the matter of performance can make or break an otherwise immersive experience. With that said, modern generations of graphics hardware are continuously getting better. Nvidia’s RTX family of graphics cards offer revolutionary features like DLSS to provide framerate boosts without (theoretically) sacrificing quality. AMD changed the game once again though when it introduced Smart Access Memory (SAM). This feature is actually just Resizable BAR, which allows the GPU memory and CPU to…

Bravely Default II Review – Brave, Brave, Brave

Bravely Default II on Switch With the original game being one of the very best JRPGs you could play on the Nintendo 3DS (with a sequel quickly releasing after that), it’s no surprise that Square Enix would eventually bring the Bravely Default franchise back, bigger and better than ever before. Bravely Default II marks the official return of the series and its debut on the Switch, and it’s (almost) everything you could’ve hoped for. The setup is as ‘classic RPG’ as it gets. Seth, a sailor who gets shipwrecked on…

Tom & Jerry Review – IGN

Tom and Jerry, the perpetually feuding feline and rodent who’ve been warring for our amusement in over 160 animated Hanna-Barbera shorts (plus numerous TV shows and movies) since 1940 — not to mention serving as the inspiration for The Simpsons’ Itchy and Scratchy — are now starring in their own big city-set, hybrid live-action/animated adventure. And it doesn’t quite hit the mark.Filled with frequent flashes of fun, Tom & Jerry ultimately gets bogged down with an overload of, well, let’s just call it humanity. In an effort to bring together…

New Halo Infinite PC campaign screenshots show a lot of improvement

Last July, Microsoft and 343 Industries showed off Halo Infinite gameplay for the very first time. And the internet responded. Not with a lot of praise, mind, but with disappointment and a butt-load of memes featuring a brute they adopted as Craig. Indeed, the latest Halo didn’t quite overwhelm people with its looks. The gameplay, which looked rather fun and harkened back to classic Halo, was overshadowed by graphics that didn’t quite live up to expectations. However, as the saying goes, time mends all things. Today, 343 dropped a handful…

Microsoft Flight Simulator – Bonaire Flamingo Airport Review (Aerosoft)

Aerosoft just released Bonaire Flamingo Airport (TNCB) for Microsoft Flight Simulator, opening another destination for those who love flying over the Caribbean. TNCB isn’t a large hub, but due to its position on a beautiful island popular with tourists and surfers, it gets quite a lot of airliner traffic from major US carriers like American Airlines, Delta, and United. Since it’s in the Caribbean Netherlands, it also sees intercontinental traffic from the motherland operated by KLM and TUI. Unlike many island destinations, most of the traffic comes year-round, making it…

Grab this 2TB M.2 NVMe SSD while it’s on sale to speed up load times

Whether it’s counting framerate, input delay, bandwidth, or frequencies, gamers love speed. Therefore, it would be wrong to exclude loading times. After all, even the consoles now have fancy NVMe SSDs that blaze along much faster that SATA SSDs. Storage can be expensive though, and it’s not nearly as exciting as what other upgrades can do for your system. However, storage drives are easy to get right now and, unlike most things in life, the sale prices for NVMe SSDs are actually getting better. That makes now a pretty decent…

Curse of the Dead Gods Review

I will admit that when I initially saw a top-down action roguelite called Curse of the Dead Gods, complete with swords, bows, environmental hazards, and semi-random rewards based on what room you choose to enter next, my first thought was “Hey, this seems a bit like a Hades knockoff.” It turns out, I was completely wrong. Despite featuring a smorgasbord of clear influences from other roguelites, Curse of the Dead Gods stands out in that increasingly crowded genre thanks to some cool new ideas of its own. Its curse and…
