MSI gaming products march onto Computex 2018

Computex is, naturally, all about computers but of late it has been dominated by gaming PCs, laptops, and peripherals. Perhaps hinting at where the PC industry is headed, PC makers are showing off their latest wares designed to take a beating as far as high-end gaming goes.

Fallout 76 revealed as Bethesda’s ridiculous livestream finally pays off

If you've visited Twitch at any point in the last 24 hours, you probably encountered a very strange livestream hosted by Bethesda.

Dark Souls: Remastered is available a day early (for some, at least)

Well, here's a happy surprise: it seems that Dark Souls: Remastered has launched a day early for some players. Originally scheduled to launch tomorrow, Dark Souls: Remastered has gone live on Steam today. We're not sure if someone on From Software's end messed up or if the developer simply decided to open the floodgates a little early, but we doubt we'll find many Steam users who will complain about this happy turn of events.
