By tracy

Season 6 of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has arrived, bringing with it a new fast-travel system for Warzone as well as new operators, cosmetics, multiplayer maps and modes and so much more.

Warzone Season 6 – Map Changes

  • Subway Fast Travel: A metro has been added to Verdansk, described as a “dynamic fast travel system” that allows players to jump between existing points of interest. A number of Metro stations have been placed in the map which squads can investigate to find items and catch trains to move around the map. Safety standards dictate that the cars will not transport players to stations outside of the safe zone, and they also won’t move if there is conflict on board. Activision notes that these new underground areas are “prime spots for ambushes.”

This 17-inch 144Hz Ryzen laptop with an RTX 2060 is on sale for $1,215

By tracy

I unabashedly still prefer a 17.3-inch gaming laptop over the more popular 15.6-inch form factor (and smaller sizes), and if you do as well, head over to Lenovo and check out the Legion 5. There’s a promo code that knocks $215.49 off the price, making this a very compelling deal.

The regular web price for this config is $1,429.99, but if you input coupon code SAVE15NOW (case sensitive, so hit the caps lock or shift key), it knocks the price down to $1,215.49. And what exactly do you get for the money? Quite a bit, actually.

This is a newer config built around AMD’s Ryzen 7 4800H processor, an 8-core/16-thread chip with a 2.9GHz base clock, 4.2GHz max boost clock, and 8MB of L3 cache. Importantly, the CPU is based on AMD’s Zen 2 architecture, the same as what powers the Ryzen 3000 series on the desktop.

For graphics and gaming, it wields a GeForce RTX 2060, and it appears to be the full powered version (read: not Max-Q). Sure, Turing is a little less sexy now that Ampere is here, but Nvidia has not yet announced any mobile GPUs based on Ampere and likely won’t until next year.

Vergil Is Coming to Devil May Cry 5 on PS4 and Xbox One via DLC

By tracy
Capcom has announced that Vergil will be made playable in the current generation versions of Devil May Cry 5 via a paid-for DLC pack.As part of the Capcom TGS Live 2020, producer Matt Walker and DMC5 director Hideaki Itsuno announced the DLC after having discussed the new features coming as part of the next-gen Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition. While many of its new improvements are unable to be added to the PS4 and Xbox One versions due to tech limitations, making Vergil playable is coming via DLC.

“People have been asking to play as Vergil since DMC5 came out, so I’m happy we can finally answer those requests,” said Walker.

No date was announced, but the DLC is paid-for, and so current-gen users will need to pay up to add Vergil to their game.

Just ten seconds of Vergil gameplay was shown so it’s yet to be confirmed what his move-set is, but we were able to see an ability in which Virgil surrounds himself with spinning blue swords that strike enemies that get close to him.Devil May Cry 5 Special Edition was announced for next-generation consoles at the latest PS5 livestream event.

Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds – First Gameplay Revealed

By tracy

At a special online presentation during Tokyo Game Show 2020 today, publisher Level-5 and developer Netmarble showed a few minutes of gameplay of their upcoming mobile RPG Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds. The entire presentation was later uploaded to YouTube with English subtitles (“for a limited time” according to the official Twitter account).

Cross Worlds is a departure from the previous Ni no Kuni games, which used a traditional fantasy setting. Instead, Cross Worlds has a science-fiction twist: the player is a regular person in the “real” world of Ichi no Kuni (literally “one country”) who is beta-testing a new virtual reality game called Soul Diver, which takes them into the world of Ni no Kuni.Five player classes have been revealed for Ni no Kuni Cross Worlds: Swordsman, Witch, Rogue, Destroyer and Engineer. In today’s online presentation, popular Japanese YouTuber Masuo was able to begin a game as the Swordsman, although his in-game character looked different than the default version, suggesting there will be character customization options (but none were shown). In the game inside the game, his character was greeted by an AI character called Rania. A sudden glitch in the system replaces Rania with a “real”

Here’s a 3D printed RTX 3080 piggy bank while you save up for the real deal

By tracy

Good luck getting your hands on an Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080—it’s the hottest selling GPU right now, along with the much more expensive 3090. But while you might not be able to find one in stock for a bit, you can 3D print a miniature replica that is also a piggy bank.

Take those sour lemons and make some sweet lemonade, in other words. Use it as a swear jar to fast track your savings (if you have a potty mouth), or otherwise just keep dumping change into the thing until you’ve saved up enough coin to fund a GPU upgrade. Hopefully by the time you do, there will be ample stock. Or you could be ironic and save up for a Radeon RX 6000 card, which AMD suggests will be in ample supply.

Regardless, the design is the creation of Nils Kal, who uploaded the schematic to Prusa Printers (via OC3D). It is “scaled down a bit to fit on the MK3 print bed,” but you can scale it to 142 percent if you want a true-to-life replica of the Founders Edition model. There is also a schematic that nixes the money slot.

The Sims 4 Will Add More Skin Tones and Hair Options

By tracy

The Sims will expand its palette of skin tones in an update coming to PC on October 6 and consoles on November 10. The update will start with an update on fixing the existing skin tones in October and in December The Sims will add “at least” a hundred new skin tone swatches with an emphasis on darker skin.

In a new blog, The Sims development team first confirmed that there are a blotchy artifact and ashy effect on its current palette of darker skin tones on high res computers. This will be addressed in the upcoming October update, along with an update to the two base game hairstyles.

Then in December, The Sims will expand its skin tone offerings by adding cool, neutral, and warm tones. There will also be a slider on all the swatches that will let you modify a selected tone to be lighter or darker for further customization.

Similarly, makeup in Creat-A-Sim will be further customizable to offer a new level of control over a Sims’ appearance.

The move follows a variety of other games adding deeper levels of character customization to better reflect different skint ones for players. World of Warcraft …
