Get AMD's best gaming CPU for an all-time low of $260
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2020, 7:52 am
If you’re looking to take advantage of AMD’s free Assassin’s Creed Valhalla bundle with select Ryzen processors at the moment, then there are some great happening over at Newegg right now as part of their Fantastech sale (yes, I just did a big shudder as well). The best deal of the bunch is definitely the […]

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will let you switch between the female and male Eivor
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2020, 8:23 am
Where Assassin’s Creed Odyssey made players choose between playing as Kassandra or Alexios at the start and Syndicate missions often picked a Frye twin for you, Assassin’s Creed Valhalla will let players switch between the female and male versions of our lone hero Eivor whenever we please. That mostly sounds useful for double-checking which voice […]

Assassin's Creed Valhalla release date, gameplay, and trailers
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2020, 5:34 am
Assassin’s Creed Valhalla finally has a release date and Ubisoft even showed off some actual gameplay! You can now see just how grim the dark ages were in 9th centry England, from viking sieges of Saxon castles to fighting witches in dingy swamps.

I met the Fallout 76 Fun Cop
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2020, 6:00 am
People in Fallout 76 are decent enough, in my experience. I forget whether I’ve related my first encounter with another player, where I accidentally blundered into their camp, then backed away in the panicky assumption that they’d attack me, only for them to instead drop a gift bag with a level-appropriate hunting rifle and some […]

If you’re looking to upgrade your PC with a new gaming CPU at the moment, then you’re in the right place, as we’ve rounded up all of the cheapest CPU deals from the last seven days. Whether you’re looking to build a new budget PC or a super-powered mega rig, you’ll find all the best […]

Have You Played… Project Winter?
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 13 July 2020, 2:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day, perhaps for all time. I really like Project Winter, at least in theory. It’s a classic hidden role multiplayer affair, where you’re ostensibly Doing A Survival: there’s a bunch of you stuck somewhere arctic, trying not to freeze or starve […]

Ubisoft's server issues won't stop the Watch Dogs 2 giveaway
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 5:37 pm
Ubisoft’s offer of Watch Dogs 2 for free if you watched today’s Ubisoft Forward stream today was meant to be a tempting little sweetener, but things broke. The servers seemingly overloaded, meaning that not only were many unable to sign into their Ubi accounts and become eligible for the giveaway, some people are complaining all […]

Another Ubisoft Forward showcase stream is coming
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 6:20 pm
A fair few games in recent E3 showcases were conspicuously absent from today’s Ubisoft Forward stream: no Beyond Good & Evil 2, no Rainbow Six Quarantine, no Gods & Monsters, no Roller Champions, no Skull & Bones. And yet they found time to announce Far Cry 6. Given that they’ve all been delayed for extra […]

I don’t go round singing “Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner!” or anything, but out of all the places I’ve lived so far, London is the one I think of as home. And this so happens to be the setting for hacktion-adventure game Watch Dogs Legion, which is definitely not called Watch Dogs London despite […]

Assassin's Creed Valhalla isn't really an AC game, but it's still great
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 3:45 pm
Playing a big ol’ chunk of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla made me realise how much the series has changed since the first game in 2007. If you played Altaïr’s first adventure and then skipped straight to Valhalla, where big buff blonde viking Eivor is running around 9th century England, you probably wouldn’t realise they were in […]

Assassin's Creed Valhalla will launch on November 17th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 3:52 pm
Ubisoft today announced a November 17th release date for Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the next in their open-world murder simulator series. The date leaked yesterday but shh. And pretending that we haven’t been watching great reams of leaked Valhalla gameplay all week, they very proudly released a video showing and explaining more of the game. I […]

Far Cry 6 announced for realsies, coming in February 2021
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 4:12 pm
Following a little leak this week, Ubisoft today formally announced Far Cry 6. The open-world FPS series is headed to the fictional tropical paradise of Yara, which is now in the grip of a dictator (played by Giancarlo Esposito off Breaking Bad) and his son. As the series winds on, I’m increasingly convinced a little […]

Ubisoft battle royale Hyper Scape is now open for everyone to try
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 4:49 pm
Ubisoft’s free-to-play battle royale FPS Hyper Scape today launched into open beta, after a short closed beta with invitations handed out on Twitch. As the genre goes, 100 players are running around a big map looting and shooting. Hyper Scape is pretty zippy as battle royales go, mind, with players bouncing from streets to rooftops […]

Everything you need (and more!) to succeed in the new abyssal proving grounds.

Watch Dogs: Legion launching on October 29th
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 3:22 pm
Ubisoft today announced an October 29th release date for Watch Dogs: Legion and introduced a few of the potential stars in new videos. Legion hops over the proverbial pond to focus on DedSec operatives in London fighting The Man by hacking the oeuvre of David Mamet [the planet -rhyming slang ed.], and this time we […]

WoW Classic Instance Limit Changes and Extra Bag Slots
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 2:15 pm
In WoW Classic things seem on track for the start of the Ahn’Qiraj events on July 27th, which I mentioned last week.  This past week saw a couple of smaller changes to the game. Previously Blizzard announced that they would limit the number of

Three more Ubisoft executives resign following abuse allegations
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 12:19 pm
Ubisoft today announced that another three executives have resigned as the company continue trying to deal with the recent allegations of serious and widespread harrassment and abuse. The three stepping down are chief creative officer Serge Hascoët, global HR head Cécile Cornet, and Yannis Mallat, the managing director of Ubisoft’s Canadian studios. This comes a […]

Editor’s Note: Signal Cartel (SC) is an EvE Online counter-culture in more ways than one. One of our motto’s is “be the content you wish to see”. In other words, leadership is not expected to provide content for its members, but rather members are

As many of you are surely aware by now, James 315 finally finished his blog, MinerBumping, after 8 glorious years of non-stop victory. His blog will no longer be updated, which has created a void in ganking-related content that will be hard to fill. It is

Screenshot Saturday Sundays! Our weekly ritual returns, gathering us all to summon gifs, screenshots and work-in-progress videos from the murky depths of the game development community. This week: Satan’s personal elevator, wibbly-wobbly firearms, a late-night conversation and powerful amphibious tongues.

Daft obstacle course party game Fall Guys is out in August
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 9:08 am
Yeah winning a last-man-standing battle by bursting your opponent’s head is great and all, but have you ever won a battle royale after your opponent got clobbered by giant fruit rolling downhill? Such is the foolishness of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout, a 60-player party game inspired by those wacky TV game shows like Wipeout, Takeshi’s […]

Watch Ubisoft Forward here today
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 12 July 2020, 7:00 am
NotE3 continues today with Ubisoft Forward at 8pm (noon Pacific). Ubisoft’s notE3 stream promises more on Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs: Legion, an Hyper Scape, plus “a few surprises”. One of those surprises is already blown, as the existence of Far Cry 6 leaked on Friday. Heaps of Assassin’s Creed Valhalla gameplay footage has leaked […]

It’s been quite fun to get some of that old E3 self-indulgent and money-wasting spectacle today in Devolver Digital’s own notE3 showcase/short film. D3: Devolver Digital Direct continued the indie publisher’s absurd years-long story of company executives, exploding heads, and the future’s future. As we enter the fifth week of an endless online marketing experience […]

Weird West shows some of its immersive sim-ish bits in a new trailer
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 July 2020, 7:27 pm
“I can’t quite get what Weird West is as a game, but I bloody love the aesthetic,” our Nate said last month. He’d just seen a notE3 trailer which had plenty of mood but not much of the game. It’s an action-RPG with some immersive sim-ish bits, yeah? From some folks formerly of Dishonored and […]

Serious Sam 4's new trailer looks like Serious Sam to me
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 11 July 2020, 4:34 pm
The new trailer for Serious Sam 4 coming out of Devolver Digital’s notE3 stream today didn’t show much of the game, but what it did show looks like Serious Sam to me. Wacky cartoon monsters roaming around arenas in real-world-ish locations? Yup. Quite a few of those monsters at once? Quite. Unnecessary story? Seriously. Explosions, […]
