Logitech Reveals New Next-Gen Ready Racing Wheel, the G923

By tracy
Logitech has unveiled a new racing peripheral set: the Logitech G923 Racing Wheel and Pedals. The wheel has one name but will come in two versions: one for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X, and one for PC, PlayStation 4, and also PlayStation 5 (subject to final Sony product approval). Logitech has previously sold console-specific wheels as different models with the PC/PS4 G29 and the PC/Xbox One G920 (although they were already largely identical aside from a few additional buttons and an array of rev LEDs on the G29).The new G923 features what Logitech describes as a “new high-definition force feedback system that dials into a game’s physics and audio engine to deliver an ultra-realistic experience.” The company has dubbed the proprietary technology ‘Trueforce’. Logitech explains the wheel “connects directly to in-game engines, processing at up to 4000 times per second” using actual game physics and audio in real time. The caveat for now is that this is only in supported games. So far only Gran Turismo Sport, Assetto Corsa Competizione, and 2019’s Grid support Trueforce at the moment, according to the wheel’s new product page.

The wheel and pedal set will also feature programmable dual clutch launch

Virtual BlizzCon Event Coming In Early 2021

By tracy
Blizzard will hold a virtual version of BlizzCon in early 2021.As reported by GamesIndustry.Biz, Blizzard president J. Allen Brack noted during Activision Blizzard’s earnings call this week that a virtual version of the show would take place during “the early part” of 2021.The digital showcase will be “channelling the spirit of BlizzCon” in the absence of a physical show. “We’re looking forward to sharing what the teams have been working on for that event,” Brack added.

Blizzard announced in May of this year that it had come to “the very difficult decision” to cancel BlizzCon 2020 due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time, it was announced that an online version of the event would take place in 2021, meaning this will be the first November without a BlizzCon since 2012. The announcement of “early 2021” suggests it won’t be too long of a delay, though.

Recent BlizzCon events have used a virtual ticket system to offer fans who are watching the show from home the ability to engage with the show, with unique cosmetics given out to those who pick up the ticket.

Necrobarista Review – IGN

By tracy
It’s a downright tragedy that Necrobarista was released when the whole world is participating in social distancing. All through my playtime, I kept thinking how nice it would be if I could just grab my laptop and knock out this review at my nearby coffee shop.
God, do I miss coffee shops.

The traditional text boxes and flat character sprites of a visual novel can often feel like similarly static affair to the mundanity of sheltering-in-place, but Necrobarista supercharges that formula by fully animating the action. Couple that dynamic presentation with a colorful cast of characters and it offers up an engrossing story set in a supernatural coffee shop.

While that tale is a fantastical tearjerker about the mundanity and melancholy of death, Necrobarista is really about spending five hours with a loveable cast of misfits. There’s the coffee shop’s boss Maddy, her co-worker Chay, a young engineering genius named Ashley, the recently-deceased Kishan, the infamous Australian outlaw Ned Kelly, and a couple of other passers-by, all of whom are as charming as they are funny.

Maddy and Chay quickly establish themselves as the stars of the show, and their relationship forms the heart of this ghost

Grab this 10th Gen Core i7 HP Pavilion 15t laptop for just $779 ($350 off)

By tracy

First a warning: This is not a gaming laptop. Yes you can game on it, sort of, but if you’re eyeing up the back to school deals that are starting to surface with gaming in mind, then you probably want to hold off for a laptop that packs some serious polygon pushing silicon. This ain’t it. 

What this HP Pavilion machine is however, is a decent deal that features the latest 10th gen Intel architecture. You’re looking at an Intel Core i7 1065G7 (that’s a 10nm Ice Lake chip ladies and gentlemen), with 16GB of DDR4-2666 RAM, and the kind of weird and wonderful storage subsystem that you can only get from an Intel machine—512GB Intel SSD and 32GB of Intel Optane memory.

All good so far. The chassis is a bit uninspiring, but it will get the job done. Where some of you will probably turn away is when it comes to the screen. The 15.6-inch display has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 (yeah, I’ve checked, it’s still definitely 2020), but you can drop an extra $130 on it to jump up to a 1080p IPS panel. 

If you’re in the market for torturing yourself, then

Superhot: Mind Control Delete Review – Forward Motion

By tracy

The first-person shooter genre is well-worn territory, but 2016’s Superhot effectively innovated by creating a unique scenario where the action only unfolds when you move. The result was a more strategic, almost puzzle-like shooter, giving you time to plot your next move as you act as a one-person wrecking crew. Superhot: Mind Control Delete uses a variation on this formula; you’re still clearing rooms of heavily armed enemies, but now you have access to myriad gameplay modifiers and new abilities within a roguelike format, elevating this sequel beyond the original.

Much like the first game, you’re tasked with wiping out enemies that can only move when you do – otherwise, the action remains frozen in time. You’re always outnumbered, so this helps you even the odds, as you can take time to identify the best approach to each combat situation, then work to execute your plan. Dodging bullets, grabbing weapons out of the air, and nailing a steady stream of headshots is immensely satisfying. A perfectly executed sequence makes you feel like John Wick at the top of his game, and watching it back at normal speed shows just how awe-inspiring your moves are.

Mind Control Delete is spread out
