  1. black-lives-matter-header.jpg

    You will no doubt be aware that protests, marked by a violent police response, are ongoing in America. These protests were sparked by the death of George Floyd, who was killed by police officer Derek Chauvin. Chauvin kneeled on George Floyd’s neck for almost 9 minutes. Today you will see many people, websites and individuals, participating in what is being called Blackout Tuesday. By not posting on social media, it clears the way for Black voices, particularly of the Black community in the US, to speak about the systemic racism and police brutality that they suffer.

    We will be participating in this social media blackout for 24 hours from 2pm BST today, and have joined in a joint statement of solidarity from all the websites across our network. We’re going to spend the time playing and writing about games by BAME developers and creators, and those posts will appear in the next 24 hours and beyond.

    We know we haven’t done nearly enough to amplify Black voices or help diverse people into this industry. We are working on things to change that. But now is not the time for a long and empty mea culpa. We encourage you to donate to organisations fighting racism and police violence. We encourage our white audience to take the time to listen and educate yourselves with resources like those provided by Black Lives Matter.

  2. Samsung 860 Evo - Best gaming SSD

    After last week’s big sale on WD Black SSDs, this week’s big [cms-block] are all about Samsung. After weeks of prices inching higher and higher or just plain refusing to budge whatsoever, prices for Samsung’s best SSDs have finally started to fall in the US. There are big discounts to be had on our current [cms-block] pick, the 860 Evo, and their top-end 970 Evo Plus drives, as well as their portable Samsung T5 drives, with some returning to what they cost over Black Friday.

  3. valorant.jpg

    After a two-month closed beta, Riot’s guns n’ wizards shooter Valorant is now out for everyone to play. Valorant is the League Of Legends developer’s first tactical FPS, pitting teams of five players against each other to capture objectives. It’s very ‘CS:GO meets Overwatch’, and what’s more, it’s free-to-play. For those of you already embedded in the game, its full release today comes with some lovely new things to see and do – there’s a new character, a new map, and even and a jaunty hat for a frog.

  4. Ebay-discount-code-deals-1212x682.jpg

    Ebay UK always seems to have some kind of sale on these days, but this time the discounts are pretty damned substantial. Thanks to a new site-wide 20% off code, you can get up £75 off if you find something that tickles your fancy. There’s a catch, though: it only works on certain Ebay stores. The good news is that we’ve done the hard work for you and found the best PC deals available right now. Read on below for our top picks.

  5. Samsung 860 Evo - Best gaming SSD

    Despite the ongoing coronavirus, SSD prices have generally dropped a little this week, making it a good a time as any to upgrade your PC with one of our best [cms-block] recommendations. That said, if you’re in the UK, it’s not a good time to buy the WD Black SN750, which has spiked once again after last week’s Amazon sale. Still, even if the WD Black SN750 is no longer a good buy, we’ve done our best to round up all the other SSD deals we’ve been able to find below, collating all the lowest prices so you can see exactly how they stack up against the competition.

    Below, you’ll find a range of size capacities and form factors in our SSD deals hub, as there are great deals to be found across all sorts of SSDs if you know where to look – which is more than can be said for the week’s cheapest [cms-block], [cms-block] and [cms-block]. Whether you’re looking for the best SATA SSD deals or the biggest savings on today’s super fast NVMe SSDs and portable SSDs, here are the cheapest SSD deals of the week.

  6. nimbatus-review-1.jpg

    Nimbatus

    is about building spaceships. More accurately, it’s about learning to build spaceships. And if we’re being completely honest, it’s a game about learning how not to build them. At its heart is one of the most flexible digital construction toys I’ve come across, which allows for enormous complexity despite a relatively unforbidding learning curve, and Nimbatus would be a worthy purchase if its freestyle sandbox mode was all there was.

    But welded onto it is a game about hopping from planet to planet whilst pursued by space gits, facing increasingly stern challenges to your engineering skill, and I’m not altogether certain what to make of it. On the one hand, it’s brutally difficult, and often in the most frustrating ways. But on the other hand, it’s an elegant piece of game design that manages to add impetus, strategy and tension to an otherwise aimless physics sandbox. It’s a roguelite whose purpose is to force you to get better at using a toy, and the more I smash my head against it, the more I think I like it.

    As the PUBG Continental Series (PCS) Charity Showdown comes to a close across Asia, APAC, North America, and Europe, we wanted to take this moment and thank all of our fans, players, and teams for helping us create a strong start to the 2020 PUBG Esports’ competitive calendar.

    7615f7ceb8a8fa1fd23580267fa2378de5e5131d

    Four teams reigned supreme, with DivisionX Gaming (APAC), Tianba Gaming(ASIA), Oath Gaming (North America), and Northern Lights (Europe) taking the crown in their respective territories. In addition to their own winnings, a promised donation of $400,000 USD will be split evenly and given to each winning teams' charity of choice to aid in COVID-19 relief.

    Additional donations from our amazing PUBG Esports fans will also be donated along with this. We will provide the result of donations with the upcoming announcement.

    As previously announced[www.pubg.com], fans can look forward to two additional PCS tournaments held across Asia, APAC, North American, and Europe. Today, we’re happy to reveal that the names for these upcoming events are PUBG Continental Series 1 (PCS 1) and PUBG Continental Series 2 (PCS 2). For more details around the both PCS events, please find more details below.

    689adac451e0545f271cdadee6ea680eed772063

    PCS 1 and PCS 2 Overview
    PUBG Esports fans can set their dates and look forward to PCS 1 in June and PCS 2 in August. Just like the PCS Charity Showdown, PCS 1 and PCS 2 will be held across four different regions: APAC, Asia, North America, and Europe. Each of the tournaments will be conducted using with the same overall format and ruleset.

    Participating Teams
    Each regional event will feature a total of 16 participating teams, all of which must secure seeds through their regional qualifiers. For more detailed information around the regional qualifiers, please refer to each region’s announcement.

    Tournament Operation

    Fans can look forward to four days of intense competition over the course of two weeks. Each day will feature five matches across Erangel and Miramar.

    Prize Money

    Players will be battling it out for their share of each regional event’s $200,000 USD prize pool. The stakes will grow even higher as the Pick’Em Challenge returns. Taking the framework of the Pick’Em Challenge from last year’s PUBG Global Championship 2019 (PGC 2019), we look to offer another way to provide more loot for our participating teams and fans.

    e6a2ae0267b4af9fe105e39b0fc5405cbd2a1223


    PCS 1 will take place from June 25 to July 5.

    The schedule for each of the regional events are as follows::
    43e3e5071d6fea0a34f27e25a842c8e054f7d57b
    The full schedule for PCS 2 will be announced at a future date.

    PCS 1 Pick’Em Challenge
    59c7861616a65d146b1e6df04da66cfb482df032

    Hot off last year’s success during PGC 2019, the Pick’Em Challenge returns as a revenue sharing method for our pro teams to take part in during each of the upcoming regional PCS events.

    From June 17 to July 2 (KST), the PCS 1 Pick’Em Challenge will give PC fans a chance to guess which team will reign supreme at each of the regional events. We're also happy to announce that our console players will be able to participate in the Pick'Em Challenge this year from June 23 to July 2( KST).

    If your pick wins, you’ll get the opportunity to take home some champion level loot. While we’ll announce specifics on how to participate at a later date, we’re excited to give you a high-level overview of the program and a sneak peek at some golden loot.

    Similar to last year’s PGC 19 Pick’Em Challenge, PCS 1 will include exclusive items that will be sold in-game. The items will be revealed at a later date, but 25% of the profits will be distributed back to pro teams across the four regions. 12.5% of the profits will be added to each of the regional prize pools, while the remaining 12.5% will be distributed equally amongst the participating teams.

    Finally, please see below for a concept image of the items you can obtain through the PCS 1 Pick’Em Challenge.

    1da3d1e4c68e1f8c7d334294093c562cc04a085a

    We’re looking forward to extending the momentum built from the success of the PCS Charity Showdown by creating unique and interesting viewing experiences for PCS 1 and PCS 2. Thanks again for making our inaugural events a success and we look forward to announcing more details around both PCS 1 and Pick’Em Challenge.

  8. fortnite-leak.jpg

    You know how it goes, Fortnite is constantly changing up the map and events on its battle royale island and folks love to get a sneak peek at what’s up next. This time around it’s not a datamine that dug up the dirt. It seems that the PlayStation Store accidentally changed Fortnite’s icon on its site to this, the battle bus floating over an endless ocean. Fortnite’s Chapter 2 Season 3 is coming in hot, so folks are thinking a big flood might be the next shakeup.

  10. fairy-tail.jpg

    On the list of anime that were just a bit too action-y for teenage me is Fairy Tail, though of course that’s part of what makes it a good candidate for an RPG spinoff. It’s not the first time the series has been treated to a game adaption, but this will be its first proper PC release. Koei Tecmo are gearing up for July’s release with a new gameplay video showing 24 minutes of cutscenes and combat from early in the game.

    Silly wobble person fighting game Gang Beasts is going it alone, planning to self-publish future updates. Last year, Boneloaf’s former publisher Double Fine Presents was bought up by Microsoft, eventually saying that continuing to be a publisher after being bought by a bigger publisher “doesn’t make sense,” and calling the new structure a “complicated issue.” Looks like Gang Beasts will come out of the equation alright, as Boneloaf are planning some new updates for the game even post-publisher.

    Electronic Arts had planned to today announce Madden NFL 21, the latest annual sequel in their American football series. But in light of the protests, unrest, and violence in America right now after Minneapolis police killed unarmed Black man George Floyd, it didn’t seem the time. “Our immediate attention is on actions we can take to drive change against the unjust treatment and systemic bias that is plaguing the nation and our world,” EA Sports said in a surprising statement.

    Terraria’s

    final update, Journey’s End, is just the beginning. Developers Re-Logic have pulled off one final trick for their huge fanbase, making popular community mod manager tModloader officially supported. It’s a lovely gesture that means the players will have easy access to the bewildering amount of fan-made items, monsters, total conversions, and more, even if development has ceased.

    I had to editorialise a lot when looking around for mods for Terraria: there’s a bewildering amount. I didn’t want to overwhelm things with content mods, because there’s an issue of balance with some of the larger mods. As much as I love OTT boss battles, I generally prefer Terraria’s mods to feel like part of the original game. The rest are QoL addons, because there’s nothing better than wrangling the vasy, unwieldy systems of Terraria into something just a tad more manageable. That’s what we’ll be working with, so let’s get to it.

    Truly, Skyrim never dies. Its memes, one liners, and in-jokes are probably destined to plague our vocabulary until the end of time. Here’s a deep cut for you all the way back from the annals of 2012. It’s been reshared on Reddit once again because you can’t really beat the silly friends reenact video games vibe. So I’m resharing it too and Fus Ro Dah to anyone who minds.

    In Minecraft Dungeons, you are a hero tasked with stopping the Arch-Illager and his army of monsters from taking over the Overworld. The journey will be a long one, spanning multiple difficulties, but there is plenty of loot out there to help you along the way.

  18. Minecraft Dungeons multiplayer

    Minecraft Dungeons is a lot more fun, albeit a lot more challenging, when you’re playing with friends. Teaming up with another player is rather simple to set up, whether you’re playing with friends online or family members in the same household.

    You do need to do a few things first in order to set up multiplayer, but once you have, you’ll be exploring levels with family and friends in no time. Just make sure to have each other’s back, as the monsters do get tougher when playing with other people.

    But one of the bigger questions that Minecraft Dungeons players have asked is: when is crossplay coming to the game? Sadly, not yet. But if you’re using the same PC we have all of the tips you need to get started.

  19. Minecraft Dungeons emeralds

    When you kill an enemy in Minecraft Dungeons, there is a high chance that green gems will scatter everywhere. These are emeralds and they act as the game’s currency. So why do you need emeralds?

    Well the main reason is to exchange them with the Blacksmith or the Wandering Trader at the camp for a random weapon, random armour piece, or random artefact. Since they are randomised and you’ll have the chance to get unique weapons quickly this way, you’ll want as many emeralds as possible.
