Best graphics card 2019: Top GPUs for 1080p, 1440p and 4K

We’ve seen a lot of changes to our best graphics card list over the last couple of months. With new graphics cards from Nvidia and AMD arriving every few weeks, our best GPUs for gaming at 1080p, 1440p and 4K resolutions have been shuffling about left, right and centre. Thankfully, the dust seems to have settled a bit now, although there are still rumours of yet another graphics card coming from Nvidia (the entry-level GTX 1650) at the end of April that could very well upset things even further in…

Priceless Play – 15 December 2018

Is there anything quite so glorious as being right? The smug playground-satisfaction of pulling out an “I told you so,” or (even better) the long-con revenge of living well? Of course, every good thing has its price. For every instance of being right, there must exist an equal and opposite instance of being wrong. The less enjoyable forfeit of “You were right, and I was wrong. Vanessa Hudgens does play her doppelgänger, Lady Margaret Delacourt, Duchess of Montenaro in hit Netflix original film The Princess Switch, and she doesn’t have…

Fortnite melts down the Infinity Blade

Epic Games have melted down Infinity Blade twice in one week. First they scrapped Infinity Blade, their mobile action-RPG series, and now they’ve removed the Infinity Blade they added to Fortnite Battle Royale in homage to it. As I explained after Epic added it, Fortnite’s Infinity Blade was overpowered to the point of ruining the game at all levels from pubs to Epic’s $1 million Winter Royale tournament. They had planned balance tweaks to tone down the murdersword but nah, they’ve conceded that they straight “messed up” and should think…

Christmas is almost here, so it’s time to play Skeal once more

Much as every Christmas cracker must contain a paper hat and every Christmas stocking must give a satsuma, every Christmas’s gaming must include Skeal. No one knows when this tradition started but it’s tradition, and so we must play Skeal. I’m sure many of you already celebrate the season by playing Skeal with your family round the hearth, laughing and singing together, but for the uninitiated I’ll explain: Skeal is a free slalom skiing game which teaches us the true meaning of Christmas – power, pleasure, and pain. I’d say…

Americans can get Assassin’s Creed Odyfree from Google

If you play an hour of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey before January 15th, you can keep it forever – but there are two catches. One catch is that you have to play it on Google’s Project Stream, and the other is that you have to live in the US to do so. Project Stream is one of those cloud-based clients that lets you run games on hardware that’s many miles away, so you’ll probably need a faster connection than a VPN would provide. Some might say another catch is that Odyssey…

Sins Of A Solar Empire: Rebellion and Geneshift free on Steam until tomorrow

Here’s a double giveaway to snap up now before it disappears early tomorrow. Available until 2pm GMT on Wednesday are a pair of good games that couldn’t be more different – Sins Of A Solar Empire: Rebellion by Ironclad Games is – depending on how you look at it – a mega-scale space RTS or a small, real-time 4X strategy game.
