Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck Krieg's another DLC character from Borderlands 2, added in the "Psycho Pack" and introduced in a memorable trailer called A Meat Bicycle Built for Two. In the Fantastic Fustercluck, you travel inside his mind to find the source of the psychosis that afflicts Pandora. The first level is a Disney-bright meadow with a giant version of Krieg looming over it, hurling raiders at you. Some of them ride huge bullets like they're in Dr. Strangelove, others just swing axes and shout nonsense. … [Read more...] about The best parts of Borderlands 3 are hidden in its DLC

What's better than dying? Not dying. Protective Light is one of the most powerful defensive perks in Destiny 2. After your shield breaks, you receive a 50% reduction to all incoming damage. The effect is very noticeable, and usually gives you time to scramble to safety. On-screen you'll see a message that reads 'Sheltered by the Void' with a timer that corresponds to 5 seconds for each stack of Charged with Light you had previously. Obviously, this mod shines most in hard content, so you could swap it out for another damage boosting effect—but I like to keep it on most of the time. After all, once you're dead you're DPS drops to zero. … [Read more...] about How to create a powerful Destiny 2 ‘Charged with Light’ build that works anywhere

Here's where the beauty comes in: Neat makes a line of microphones called the Beehive, whose look are really in line with their name. … [Read more...] about Somehow only one of these funny looking CES gadgets is a sex toy
What traditional 'Ubisoft open world game' elements seem like a good fit? What don't?Chris: I'm not a huge fan of leveled enemies in some cases—I'm fine when there's heavies and when reaching new leveled zones results in meeting more powerful enemies, but I recall in Assassin's Creed Origins wandering into a high level zone and encountering a hyena that was like 30 levels higher than me and thus indestructible, whereas a hyena in a level-appropriate zone was just a hyena. It would just feel weird if one standard-issue stormtrooper was cannon fodder but another, because he was standing on the other side of a dotted line on the map, was god-like. Hyenas are hyenas, and stormtroopers should be stormtroopers. … [Read more...] about What do we want from Ubisoft’s open world Star Wars game?
My excitement for the Flow X13, as I'm sure shared by most, is not its AMD Ryzen 5980XS (low-power variant of the HX) chip or Nvidia GTX 1650 graphics, but that the ROG Flow X13 supports its very own external GPU. It's said that it shouldn't suffer from any external bandwidth issues, either, thanks to the use of a proprietary and awfully wide interface capable of 63 Gbps bandwidth. That's greater than even Thunderbolt 4, but arguably it does take up considerably more room than a Type-C port. … [Read more...] about The 7 announcements from CES 2021 that every PC gamer should know about
