Asus Dual GeForce GTX 1660 Super EVO OC review: Faster memory, much bigger punch

Say hello to the new no-compromises 1080p gaming champion. Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1660 Super replaces the GDDR5 memory in the original GTX 1660 with GDDR6 VRAM, and it makes a huge difference.

Cooler Master MK850

Cooler Master MK850 review: Don't throw away your controller just yet

Cooler Master's MK850 keyboard integrates analog controls to replicate using a controller, but the experience is far from seamless, like a neat tech demo that's not yet a fully realized product.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (2019)

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare campaign review: War never changes, and neither does Call of Duty

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare tries to be a serious (and controversial) commentary on present-day armed conflicts, but it's mostly just another Call of Duty game.

acer predator helios 700 1

Acer Predator Helios 700 review: You can't call it a gimmick if it works

Packing a 9th gen Core i9 CPU, GeForce RTX 2080 and a sliding keyboard, Acer's Predator Helios 700 is large and in charge

The Outer Worlds

The Outer Worlds review: A stellar argument for deeper games, not wider ones

While it bears surface-level similarities to Fallout: New Vegas, Obsidian's created a deeper and more meaningful role-playing experience in The Outer Worlds, though it can still be frustratingly old-fashioned in regards to combat and...

Astro A50 (2019)

Astro A50 (2019) review: Convenience costs money

Expensive as ever, Astro's redesigned A50 nevertheless makes a case for its sticker price with a sleeker charging cradle, a return to the more reliable 2.4GHz band, and a refined audio profile.

Disco Elysium

Disco Elysium review-in-progress: This deep detective RPG bends itself around your choices

It's hard to imagine seeing everything in Disco Elysium.

John Wick Hex

John Wick Hex review: This strategy game nails the John Wick feel

John Wick Hex is a satisfying strategy game that aptly captures the feel of the films in a way no true action game could, though the difficulty ramp-up might drive some away.

The Bradwell Conspiracy

The Bradwell Conspiracy review: You can unravel this one in an afternoon

An explosion at the Stonehenge Museum? A gun that prints objects? The Bradwell Conspiracy starts like a great Portal-style puzzler, but doesn't have the range or flexibility to keep it interesting.

Yooka Laylee and the Impossible Lair

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair review: Not impossible, but not very fun either

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair lacks most of the original game's charm, and its final gauntlet is more tedious than taxing.

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep

Destiny 2: Shadowkeep review-in-progress: Fly me to the moon

Destiny 2 moved to Steam and released a new expansion on the same day. Predictably, the servers melted—but we still played enough to have some initial thoughts. It's no Forsaken, but Shadowkeep has room to grow.

Ghost Recon: Breakpoint

Ghost Recon Breakpoint review-in-progress: Jon Bernthal's carrying the whole game on his back

Heavy-hitting acting talent helps elevate Ghost Recon Breakpoint's familiar story, but the moment-to-moment action is starting to feel pretty familiar as well.

Astro C40

Astro C40 review: For those who think the Xbox Elite Controller just isn't premium enough

Great battery life, reliable connectivity, durable build quality, trigger stops, grip buttons, and swappable stick layouts—the Astro C40 does it all. It's an excellent high-end controller option.

Acer Nitro 5 (2019)

Acer Nitro 5 (2019) review: A great budget-conscious laptop, at least for the moment

Acer's Nitro 5 may age quickly with its entry-level hardware, but it's a great option for budget-minded buyers who enjoy light gaming and wouldn't mind upgrading in a few years.

Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 5700 XT review: Superfast and nearly flawless

The Sapphire Nitro+ Radeon RX 5700 XT is as close to perfection as a graphics card can get, bolstered by ingenious software tricks.

msi ge65 raider 1

MSI's GE65 Raider Review: A little thick, but a lot fast

The GE65 Raider 9SF packs an 8-core 9th gen Core i9 and GeForce RTX 2070 graphics into a relatively compact body

Borderlands 3

Borderlands 3 review impressions: It's exactly what you think and nothing more

In a console generation that's become synonymous with risk aversion, Borderlands 3 plays it even more safe than expected. It's like the last seven years never occurred, except in memes.

xfx radeon rx 5700 xt thicc ii ultra 3

XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT Thicc II Ultra review: A high-performance muscle car of a GPU

The XFX Radeon RX 5700 XT Thicc II Ultra is like a muscle car: High-performing, a little loud, extremely impressive, and in need of some slight tinkering for peak performance.

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey - Discovery Tour

Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's educational Discovery Tour mode is here at last, and better than before

Make Pythagoras mash grapes or learn about Thermopylae from historian Herodotus in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey's version of the Discovery Tour spin-off mode. It's back for a second go-round, and much improved.

Gears 5

Gears 5 review: War has changed

Gears 5 still feels like a series in need of an identity, but a more charismatic lead and experiments with open-world structure hold promise for the future—even if they don't quite pay off now.
