Nier: Automata is finally getting a patch on Steam

As much as I adore Nier: Automata (degree: a lot), I cannot deny the PC version is a bit bum and has been since it launched four years ago. It’s daft that we’ve had to use a fan-made fix to run it in the correct resolution or stop cutscenes stuttering. Square Enix did us dirty. But oh my giddy aunt, the stars have aligned and today they finally announced an “upgrade patch” for the post-apocalyptic RPG’s Steam version. Presumably with the fixes from the recent Microsoft Store edition? Read more

Preview: the Elite Dangerous Odyssey FPS expansion is best when you’re not shooting

There’s a Vulture circling overhead. Not a scavenger bird, but the somewhat larger Core Dynamics Vulture. Its engine reverbs across the moon’s surface as it boosts off into orbit, ignoring me. I’m not worth the hassle. My Sidewinder, the trash-tier space banger of Elite Dangerous, is parked quiet and unoccupied on the edge of a huge meteor crater. I’m out for a walk, you see, with the long-awaited space legs of the upcoming Odyssey expansion. Not everything is smooth and picturesque in this ongoing public alpha. Despite that, it’s gratifying to boot up your favourite space-trucking game and find not…

On the wall in Mike Lawton’s classroom rests a cardboard cut-out of a Black man. It’s not Martin Luther King Jr. or any other famous Black figure from history—it’s a mage—dark skinned and powerful-looking as a spell shoots from his fingertips. It’s Teferi, one of Magic: The Gathering’s most powerful main characters known as Planeswalkers, and he’s Lawton’s students’ favorite.

The best left-handed mouse for gaming in 2021

Finding the best left-handed mouse for gaming shouldn’t be this tricky, but even in 2021 we lefties still have a startlingly small choice of gaming mice. While you might find something close to what you’re after—there has been a slight resurgence in southpaw mouse models—there are still very few barely any that are actually built for us. Now, of course, a lot of us left-handers can use the rodents designed for the masses quite competently, having had to for most of our lives, but it’s not really the same. The ergonomics are all wrong and side button arrangements are a…

MSI patches AMD USB issues with latest X570 and B550 motherboard updates

MSI has released BIOS updates for its X570 and B550 motherboards that address the intermittent USB issues affecting Ryzen 5000 owners. The new firmware implements the AGESA 1.2.0.2 update AMD released to manufacturers just over a month ago, and while these BIOS updates are officially still in beta, reports have been positive so far. Not everyone has had USB problems with AMD’s Zen 3 chips, but plenty of users have experienced dropped connection for things like external DACs and cameras through to external drives.  The stop-gap suggestion from AMD was to drop the PCI Express connectivity from 4.0 to 3.0…

Have You Played… Don’t Starve Together?

I hadn’t played Don’t Starve before, despite it being a thing I knew about for quite some time. I just never fancied getting into it as I often get frustrated with survival games I’m not immediately good at (read: all of them). When some Stardew Valley bug problems ruined some lockdown date nights though, Don’t Starve Together was recommended to me on some internet list as one to try out, and what a recommendation it was.

Become a viking wizard with this Valheim mod Skyheim

Valheim already has its own sort of magic with the forsaken powers you get from each boss, but if you’re more into to slinging fireballs around you may want to try out Skyheim. This mod adds runes that you can craft with loot from bosses and dungeons. Summon a light instead of carrying a torch. Scorch a forest full of Greylings with your fire. Oh, and teleport yourself back to your bed at will. It sounds pretty powerful, but chucking fire and ice around sure looks like a good time. Read more
