MSI GS66 Stealth Review: Thin and small, with a 300Hz screen

The MSI GS66 Stealth gaming laptop packs a 10th gen Core i9-10980HK, GeForce RTX 2080 Super Max-Q, and 300Hz screen into a surprisingly thin and light body.

Command & Conquer: Remastered

Command & Conquer Remastered impressions: The roots of real-time strategy, resurrected

Petroglyph's remasters of the original Command & Conquer and follow-up Red Alert are loving and well-crafted, but very much products of their day, and are "missing" many of the improvements made by those that built on Westwood's...

nimbus plus hero01

SteelSeries Nimbus+ controller review: A fantastic choice for Apple enthusiasts, but you’ll pay for it

This is the best MFi controller you can buy, but the $70 price tag makes it tough to justify.

Mortal Kombat 11

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath review: One of 2020's best action films (and a pretty good fighting game)

Aftermath is like a three-hour after-credits stinger for Mortal Kombat 11, adding five new chapters to an already fantastic story—though it comes at a steep price.

Legends of Runeterra review: Riot's card game may have trumped Hearthstone

It took six years for someone to make a better digital card game than Blizzard, but Riot may have done just that.

core i9 10900k 1

Intel 10th Gen Review: The Core i9-10900K is indeed the world's fastest gaming CPU

Intel's 10th gen Comet Lake S CPUs don't take the crown in multi-core performance but they close the gap enough that you may want to actually consider them.

Gears Tactics

Gears Tactics review impressions: A turn-based spinoff with shooter sensibilities

Gears Tactics is a fast-paced and satisfying spinoff, a little less thoughtful than its tactics peers but with plenty of big-budget spectacle and storytelling. It adds some smart tweaks to the underlying XCOM-like formula.

chimera squad window

XCOM meets SWAT: Chimera Squad's radical tweaks make for a refreshing spinoff

XCOM: Chimera Squad tosses key XCOM design elements out the window to give the series a whole new, yet still familiar feel. It's great, especially for $20.

Ancient Enemy

Ancient Enemy review: Somehow 'fancy solitaire' is one of my favorite games of 2020

Ancient Enemy is a beer-and-pretzels adventure you can have by yourself, a solitaire-based battler that's the perfect sort-of mindless for these times.

Resident Evil 3

Resident Evil 3 review-in-progress: It's no Resident Evil 2

Linear levels, an abundance of shooting, and a plethora of cheap one-hit deaths make Resident Evil 3 a grind after last year's incredible RE2 remake.

asus rog zephyrus g14

Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 review: Ryzen 4000 makes this thin, light laptop a winner

The Asus ROG Zephyrus G14 is the world's first Ryzen 4000-based laptop. It offers stupidly good performance in a stupidly light chassis at a stupidly reasonable price.

Half-Life: Alyx

Half-Life: Alyx review: A great game burdened by astronomical expectations

Half-Life: Alyx isn't quite as revolutionary as you might hope, particularly if you're already well-versed in virtual reality, but it's undoubtedly one of the best games on the platform and hopefully the start of a resurgence for both...

Doom Eternal

Doom Eternal review: It's the end of the world as we know it (and I feel fine)

We've been to hell and back again, and you know what? It's actually pretty fun down there on the return trip, so long as you bring your own BFG 9000.

Zowie Mouse Fitting Kit

The Zowie Mouse Fitting Kit is a try-before-you-buy option for gaming mice

On the hunt for a new gaming mouse? Zowie lets you try all 10 of its models in your very own home for just $10. Hopefully other companies follow suit.

Razer Viper Mini

Razer Viper Mini review: At 61 grams, this is one of the lightest gaming mice ever made

The Viper Mini is small, lightweight, and cheap, making it perfect for small-handed folk and as a child's first gaming mouse. Just be wary of the budget sensor.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare - Warzone

Call of Duty's free Warzone spinoff is the newest (and maybe last) magnificent battle royale

In Call of Duty: Warzone, a tense one-on-one respawn mechanic and excellent level design make for the best battle royale since Apex Legends. Now all it needs is a solo mode.

Ori and the Will of the Wisps

Ori and the Will of the Wisps review: A lively adventure in the shadow of the forest of death

Ori and the Will of the Wisps is more than the sum of its parts, but only barely. Increased mobility and a bevy of beautiful environs carry the day, but it's still a fairly familiar adventure with some awkward middle-chapter pacing.

Murder by Numbers

Murder by Numbers review: Come for the Picross, stay for the pi-crimes

Murder by Numbers blends police procedural and Picross puzzling, a unique combination that will keep you solving crimes far longer than intended.
