Fallout 4 mods are now live on Xbox One

There are a number of differences that set consoles and PCs apart, as far as gaming goes. Better graphics, key/controller mapping, and mods are some of the major ones. However, now one of those is no longer exclusive to the PC, thanks to Bethesda's most recent initiative.

Aura is an AIO gaming PC that packs a GTX 1080 inside

When I think of all-in-one computer solutions, I tend to either think of an iMac, or another company's attempt at creating the new family computer. Generally, serious computing power is traded for sleek style. Even in the highest-end iMac, you'll only find a mobile GPU to power your graphics. This is fine for most applications, but not for gaming. But don't worry, one company is building an all-in-one that's aimed directly at gamers.

Earlier this week we reported that there was evidence the upcoming PlayStation 4/PC game No Man's Sky was going to be delayed by a few weeks, missing its June 21st release date.

HTC to show off their first VR game for the Vive

HTC to show off their first VR game for the Vive

We've heard a lot about Oculus's approach to their first-party games lately. However, we haven't really heard anything from HTC about developing their own games. Since they've partnered with Valve, I'd assumed that they were leaving the first-party game development to them. However, it turns out that HTC is indeed working on their own game for the Vive.

Blizzard CEO discusses Vanilla WoW server options

Blizzard CEO discusses Vanilla WoW server options

It's been less than two months since Blizzard announced that they would be taking legal action against the popular Vanilla World of Warcraft server, Nostalrius. Private MMO servers have been shut down plenty of times, and they usually close down with little fanfare. However, this case is very different, and just yesterday, Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime sat down to discuss it with a former WoW developer.

HTC Vive’s front-facing camera just got more useful

HTC Vive’s front-facing camera just got more useful

One thing that I love about using my HTC Vive is the front-facing camera. It might seem like a strange feature to get excited about, but when your eyes are completely covered, having a camera in front of them really helps. You can actually turn on a special mode that allows you to see a rough outline of everything around you, at certain times. This is great for grabbing a drink or a snack, without having to take off the headset.

Mass Effect Trilogy comes to EA Origin Access Vault

Mass Effect Trilogy comes to EA Origin Access Vault

When EA first launched Origin, there was a lot of backlash from PC gamers. With Steam dominating the PC platform, many people thought it was unnecessary for a publisher to open their own store, which only supported their titles. However, since then, EA has had a fair amount of success with the store. One of the big successes has been Origin Access, which just added a few great titles to its roster.

Forget room-scale VR, warehouse-scale is now possible

Forget room-scale VR, warehouse-scale is now possible

One of the reasons why I love my HTC Vive is because it allows me to move around the room. Otherwise, just standing around in the same spot tends to break my immersion. Of course, you're still limited to around 15 square feet of movement. But what if you want to roam around a much, much larger room? One company is working on just that.

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

New Doom features get recreated in the original games

If you haven't picked up the new Doom game, I highly recommend it. While the multiplayer leaves a lot to be desired, the single-player campaign is well worth it. If you can't afford it, or your machine can't handle it, that's okay. You can soon get some of the new Doom flavor in the original games.

Corsair LAPDOG brings the mouse and keyboard to your couch

I have a gaming dilemma, one that I think is pretty common among PC gamers. I've got a really nice gaming computer, and a nice monitor, and that's what I tend to use for gaming. But sometimes I want to just chill on my couch and play games on my big screen. I've used a number of different methods to get my keyboard and mouse to work on the couch, but it's never comfortable enough. But now Corsair thinks that they have the answer.
