Stardew Valley is getting split-screen local co-op

Stardew Valley is getting split-screen local co-op

With games like Farmville and The Sims being runaway successes on their own, it was really only a matter of time before someone mashed those two together to take a life of its own. Actually inspired more by Harvest Moon, Stardew Valley is a critically-acclaimed game that continues to spread its roots and grow on other platforms. Its next trick will be to split your screen, figuratively, of course, so that you can play with safely-distanced friends in the same room.

Nvidia stops direct sales of the RTX 3080 and 3090 Founders Edition

Gamers and PC enthusiasts looking to purchase a high-end video card for their rigs can no longer buy the RTX 3080 or RTX 3090 Founders Edition cards directly from Nvidia. Both of those graphics cards are now sold directly by Best Buy in the US. Europeans have no retailer for the video cards at this time.

Razer Tomahawk ATX and Mini-ITX PC chassis might actually be released

Razer Tomahawk ATX and Mini-ITX PC chassis might actually be released

The strange title above appears because of the odd history of the "Razer Tomahawk" brand name. We've seen several iterations of the Razer Tomahawk, the name Razer's used for a few different gaming PC chassis and related systems - but it is only now, here in the Fall of 2020, that Razer seems to be ready to release a pair of Tomahawk products to the public.

MSI RTX 3080 eBay scalping by MSI subsidiary: Who’s to blame?

MSI RTX 3080 eBay scalping by MSI subsidiary: Who’s to blame?

An "individual sales subsidiary working under MSI" was found selling brand new MSI RTX 3080 graphics cards on eBay this week. This is bad news for the individual sales subsidiary and MSI, as these brand new RTX 3080 graphics cards are supposed to be sold by MSI direct to consumers for their original MSRP. This situation is particularly unwelcome at this moment due to the extreme difficulty gamers have had in finding the NVIDIA graphics card hardware available for sale from either NVIDIA or their partner manufacturing brands on the open market.

MINISFORUM H31G Mini PC comes with a discrete GPU and some caveats

MINISFORUM H31G Mini PC comes with a discrete GPU and some caveats

When it comes to PCs, power is most often associated with size. After all, you can't really escape the laws of physics so the more power you need, the more and bigger components you need. That said, you might not actually really need all that power and some desktops try to make a compromise in size, performance, and price. The MINISFORUM H31G Mini PC is one such example and, depending on your needs, it might actually hit the sweet spot even for some gamers.

ASUS dropped over a dozen new Intel-powered PCs, one Intel Evo laptop

ASUS dropped over a dozen new Intel-powered PCs, one Intel Evo laptop

Intel isn't having a great 2020 both in terms of business and image, and it isn't completely the fault of COVID-19 alone. It took quite a big PR hit when Apple announced its ARM-based Silicon coming to Macs which served to magnify Intel's much-discussed limitations when it comes to power efficiency and mobility. Its response is its 11th-gen Core processors and Intel Evo branding. Intel got its PC partners to back it up and ASUS may have just gone overboard with no less than 13 new computers.

Android Generic Project will make custom ROMs on PCs easier to install

Android Generic Project will make custom ROMs on PCs easier to install

The third-party Android ROM landscape isn't what it used to be but it still exists and thrives even if in a smaller size. Extremely locked-down phones have made it harder to port and install these custom ROMs but PCs running on x86 Intel and AMD processors are a different story. There are quite a few ports of Android for these computers and Bliss OS, the developers of one such ROM, is starting a new project to make it even easier for other Custom ROMs to jump in, even if they were made for PCs.

Is your favorite online game as fragile as Fortnite?

Is your favorite online game as fragile as Fortnite?

In the past couple of weeks, we've experienced the unraveling of a delicately-spun web of support that's required to keep the game Fortnite afloat. In the time since Apple and Epic Games started having a bit of a war about in-game purchases, it's become abundantly clear that the power does not rest with the people, but with the companies: the companies that make the game, and the companies that create the hardware on which the game is played.

Airplane Mode monotony simulator lets you relive the nightmare when you want

Some games are made to get your adrenaline pumping while others are designed to help you relax. There are games that challenged the creativity of your mind and there are titles that try to test your nerves. Airplane Mode is a game that seems to have all of these elements crammed into a single title, letting you test your mettle and come up with ways to stay sane during a prolonged flight filled with boring trivialities and an occasional crying infant.
