Good news, Google Stadia users: If you're trying to search for your favorite games on the platform's web store, you can do that now. That's right, the billion-dollar tech company that became a tech titan through its mastery of search results somehow didn't include a search bar on its online games store. Needless to say, this inspired some negative reactions from notable gaming personalities. "Google is literally a search bar company," Noclip founder (and former GameSpot host) Danny O'Dwyer correctly pointed out . "It's great that after almost 1.5 years hiring and laying off entire games studios and generally squandering their early launch advantage, the massive corporation entirely built around Search has integrated a Search [bar] into its service," Vlambeer co-founder Rami Ismail said. Good news - a search bar is now rolling out to the #Stadia store.

The biggest patch to date for Outriders is now available, fixing a very long list of bugs that players have reported since launch. This patch does not, however, address the bug that caused players, in some cases, to lose their inventories . The fix for this inventory wipe issue was planned to release already, but it still needs more work from developer People Can Fly. Some "edge cases" recently came up and this required the studio to retest the process "several times over." As work continues on this restoration patch, People Can Fly separately worked on a general patch that is available now. The April 30 patch for Outriders fixes a number of crash scenarios and addresses numerous other issues and bugs, including a problem that could case the game to get stuck on the "Sign In" screen. The update also makes changes to weapon balance with AI snipers now giving players more time to dodge their shots. Additionally, the amount of knockback from creatures in the Stargrave expedition has … [Read more...] about Outriders Gets Biggest Patch To Date With Bug Fixes, Balance Changes, And More
Respawn has released the full patch notes for the Apex Legends Season 9: Legacy update. The new season introduces a ton of balancing adjustments for several legends, with the most welcome change being made to the game's resident healer, Lifeline. Lifeline has become a bit of a frustrating problem in Apex Legends ever since the adjustment to her and Octane's abilities in Season 5: Fortune's Favor during the Lost Treasures event. Her Combat Medic passive ability was transformed into Combat Revive, allowing her to use her D.O.C. drone to revive someone while she kept fighting. Since Season 5, players have abused this perk--Lifeline's D.O.C. drone erects an impenetrable shield when reviving a squadmate, which Lifeline can hide behind to reload or quickly heal in the middle of a fight. This made her far too dangerous. As such, in Legacy, Lifeline's passive ability is being adjusted. Combat Revive will now no longer deploy a shield. However, in return, Lifeline can now use D.O.C. … [Read more...] about Apex Legends Season 9 Patch Notes Released; Legacy Update Makes Much-Needed Change To Lifeline

There's still no official word about the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti release date from Nvidia though. The rumoured May launch was been pushed back, but the first as-yet-unreleased MSI GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Ventus 3X OC models have begun hitting warehouses, so they do exist and that means it won't be long now. … [Read more...] about Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 Ti: When is the release date, how much will it cost, and how will it perform?
