Apex Legends popularity dives, Twitch views drop 75%

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 58 mins ago

Apex Legends came out of nowhere and became the hottest game of the moment, but it seems its time in the sun is shading if you look at Twitch viewship numbers.




According to the latest data, Twitch viewership of Apex Legends has dropped 75% from its launch high of 40 million viewers per week down to 10 million viewers per week in late-March. Seeking Alpha financial analysts said that the huge buzz and instant success of Apex Legends was "acquired" and not organic.


This is true as EA paid big money to some of the biggest Twitch and game streamers on the planet, but now there are other games taking gamers' time away from Apex Legends and it's showing instantly. Even myself, I pumped 50 hours or so into the game in the weeks after it launched but then moved off to The Division 2 when it launched and have been addicted to that ever since.

Square Enix could go big at E3 2019 with FF7 Remake

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 8 hours, 18 mins ago

Amid financial dips, Square Enix needs a win right now and E3 2019 is the perfect opportunity to stoke the fires of hype.




Today Square Enix announced its E3 2019 plans, confirming a showcase in Sony's old time slot. Fans everywhere have high hopes for the event, and for good reason: the publisher is working on a multitude of exciting projects including the insanely hyped Final Fantasy VII: Remake. The company has been relatively quiet as it develops these games, including transforming FF7 from a turn-based RPG into an action game like Final Fantasy XV, but that silence could be broken in a few months' time.


One project we should hear more about is Square Enix's ambitious Avengers game. Square Enix signed a big multi-year partnership with Marvel to make games based on the comic universe, and the Avengers will be the first of many games. We don't know much about the Avengers game other than it's a completely original story and that it's meant to be played for years to come, indicating live service elements.

AMD 50th anniversary Radeon VII, Ryzen 7 2700X teased

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 11 hours, 58 mins ago

AMD is turning 50 this year and in order to celebrate it will be reportedly releasing new special edition products with both the Radeon VII graphics card and Ryzen 7 2700X processor both receiving 50th anniversary special edition releases.




A few glimpses of the Ryzen 7 2700X special edition CPU have been spotted in the last few days, but the 50th anniversary Radeon VII hasn't been seen until now. We should expect an April 29 announcement and release, but I'm sure that the numbers made available will be extremely low. It'll be a great collectors product for the future, and it isn't the last of AMD's massive launches this year.


AMD is ramping into the next generation Zen 2 CPU architecture on the new 7nm node with a plethora of new processors in its Ryzen, Threadripper and EPYC families of CPUs. On top of that we'll have the associated X570 chipset released with its PCIe 4.0 connectivity, and who can forget about Navi? The new Navi GPU architecture will also be unveiled and released into a next-gen Radeon graphics card, something that will be unveiled at E3 2019 just days after Computex 2019.

Halo TV show will deliver character-focused storytelling

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 12 hours, 2 mins ago

Showtime's upcoming Halo TV series will unfold a dramatic story with lots of character development, and could fill in large chunks of John 117's backstory.




What makes icons like The Master Chief so legendary? Their exploits on the battlefield, of course, and Sierra 117 has no shortage of death-defying feats (Covies don't call him "Demon" for nothing). Now that we know 343i is focusing largely on character development, and that Master Chief will be a big part of the show, there's lots of potential ground to cover. The Halo TV show could tap Master Chief's chaotic missions and excursions with Blue Team across the Human-Covenant War, marrying explosive action with a uniquely dramatic story arc. There's so many possibilities.


In a recent interview with ShackNews, 343 Industries executive producer Kiki Wolfkill affirmed the Halo TV series will have strong emphasis on characters, creating a more human experience like Forward Unto Dawn. "When we do big live action pieces, we want more time to do what's harder for us to do in games. Things like character development and character focused story-telling. I think we've tried to do a lot of that in the games, but it's just a different medium," she said.

NVIDIA's new GeForce 430.39 drivers: ready for GTX 1650

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 12 hours, 25 mins ago

NVIDIA has released new GeForce 430.39 drivers that have just dropped, ready for the just-released GeForce GTX 1650 in various graphics card and gaming laptop forms.




The new GeForce 430.39 drivers don't just boast support for the new TU117-based graphics cards but also provide optimizations for Mortal Kombat 11 which was just released, as well as optimizations for Anthem and Strange Brigade. The new drivers also see NVIDIA adding support for 7 new G-Sync compatible monitors, and support for the new Windows 10 May 2019 update, which includes Variable Rate Shading.


Get the new drivers right here, with NVIDIA reducing the usual 500MB+ file size down to 356MB for the GeForce 430.39 drivers.

Digital Storm teases GeForce RTX 2070 Max-P gaming laptops

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Laptops | Posted: 12 hours, 57 mins ago

Digital Storm has just announced its next-gen Avon gaming laptop that packs both Intel's new Core i7-9750H processor, and NVIDIA's new GeForce RTX 2070 Max-P graphics.




The new Intel Core i7-9750H packs 8C/8T of performance on the 14nm node at up to 4.5GHz, with the Avon gaming laptop starting at $1999 with 16GB of DDR4-2400 RAM and the RTX 2070 Max-P with 8GB of GDDR6. It rolls out with a equivalent of a 17.3-inch screen in a traditional 15-inch laptop footprint thanks to Digital Storm using a slim 6mm bezel.




The upgraded $2349 model packs double the RAM (32GB versus 16GB) and 1TB of NVMe SSD storage (1TB versus 500GB). The models have identical Intel Wi-Fi 9560 + Bluetooth, Windows 10 Home, and lifetime support in the US alongside 3-year warranty.

NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 1650 starts at $149 and uses 75W

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 13 hours, 27 mins ago

NVIDIA has just announced its latest Turing-based GeForce GTX 16 series graphics card with the new GeForce GTX 1650, which is based on the TU117 GPU and starts from just $149. The new GTX 1650 joins the GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1660 graphics cards in the non-RTX series Turing-based GeForce line up.




The new GeForce GTX 1650 launches today and while I do have a sample in-hand, for the first time that I can remember (if not, ever) the drivers were not pre-supplied to reviewers and go live today, April 23. The new TU117-based GeForce GTX 1650 offers everything from the Turing Shader innovations, including improved performance and power efficiency, and so much more.


NVIDIA is aiming the GeForce GTX 1650 at 1080p gamers with 2x the performance of the GTX 950 and 70% more performance than the GTX 1050 at 1920x1080. Best of all, the new GTX 1650 is able to do this at just 75W meaning it doesn't use an external PCIe power connector, which should really change things for small form factor gaming PCs.

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 16 hours, 27 mins ago

A new announcement has come out from the Kingdom Hearts III Twitter account, the announcement reveals that the game will be getting a free 'challenge mode' sometime tomorrow.



For Kingdom Hearts III players who need a bit more of a challenge, Sqaure Enix will be releasing a new level of difficulty called 'Critical Mode'. The new mode will be arriving as a free update tomorrow for users and Square Enix's Tetsuya Nomura, who is the director of the Kingdom Hearts series, have said "We've changed things up from the previous games, so I hope you enjoy".


According to the games co-director, Tai Yasue the critical mode will be "more technical and offensive" and is more so designed for those are would consider themselves "good at action games". It will be interesting to see how much harder Kingdom Hearts III will get after this update, for more information visit the official Kingdom Hearts website here.

Capcom drop StreetFighter V trial on Mortal Kombat 11 debut

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 17 hours, 27 mins ago

The release of Mortal Kombat 11 is only a few hours away and as fighting game fans build that hype Capcom have decided to try and take a slice of NetherRealm Studios' pie.




As I reported last week, Capcom announced that Street Fight V would be going completely free of charge for a limited amount of time on PlayStation and PC. The free trial period is scheduled to begin on April 23 and will last two weeks until May 5th. What will be included within the trial has been listed on the official Capcom blog, a link to that can be found here.


This might seem like a bit of cheeky move by Capcom but that is just what these companies do to grab audience, its classic marketing tactics for their products. It is unclear if the tactic will actually have a drastic effect on Mortal Kombat 11 sales, but I would assume that it certainly wouldn't be helping them. Mortal Kombat 11 recently had gameplay released for the Nintendo Switch, check that out here. There is also the Shao Kahn gameplay trailer if you want to see some bloody action mixed with "you suck" taunts.
