Fallout’s bloody wedding continues one of fiction’s longest-running tropes

The Fallout TV show isn’t particularly beautiful – at least, not like a bride is supposed to be. Its characters spend most of their time trudging through the irradiated grime of derelict California, avoiding pools of who-knows-what and drinking animal piss if they really need to. It’s a tough reality to witness, but that’s what makes the Prime Video game adaptation’s violent first episode so critical; its bloodbath wedding welcomes viewers to Fallout’s no-nonsense approach to love and desperation. To do it effectively, Fallout mines the ancient trope for every last perversion.

Kirin 9010 Consumes The Same Power As Qualcomm’s Older Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 While Being 30 Percent Slower, Reveals A Series Of Tests

Huawei added a slew of improvements to its latest Kirin 9010 over the Kirin 9000S, such as a 12-core CPU cluster, but those upgrades do not necessarily translate into the chipset being faster or more power efficient than the rest of the competition. According to a series of tests, the company’s latest SoC is revealed to be 30 percent slower than Qualcomm’s previous-generation Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 while consuming the same amount of power. Let us have a look at those results in more detail.

Everyone’s hot for Hades 2’s Hephaestus

With the Hades 2 technical test underway, we’re asking this question: How are the Greek gods of the game even hotter than in the original, Hades? Regardless of the answer, there are lots of new characters being added to the franchise’s lore, like Hephaestus, the god of the forge. Hephaestus is special because he plays a role in most other gods’ stories — he’s the one who crafted their powerful weapons, like Athena’s spear or Zeus’ lightning bolt. He’s also one of the few Greek gods who isn’t “perfect;” it’s said he was thrown from Mt. Olympus because of his appearance, and he was injured on the fall. He’s often depicted with a disability impacting his legs.

Samsung is reported to stick with a dual-chipset launch strategy for its upcoming Galaxy S25 series, where some regions will offer the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, while others will sell the Exynos 2500 variants. The Exynos 2400 provided a slew of surprises as the company significantly improved its current-generation flagship SoC. Next year, Samsung is expected to kick things up a notch and is rumored to leverage its second-generation 3nm process to mass produce the Exynos 2500. This move could give the SoC power efficiency attributes that dwarf Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4.

Supergiant Games just treated Hades fans to an extensive look at the game's upcoming sequel. Seriously — the developer hosted a three-hour livestream that showed off Hades II's gameplay, new features and mechanics, as well as the new designs for its characters based on the gods of Greek mythology. Supergiant's Creative Director Greg Kasavin and Studio Director Amir Rao demonstrated the abilities of the game's new protagonist, Melinoë. While she's the sister of Zagreus, the first title's protagonist, and Hades II is a direct sequel to the original, Kasavin and Rao said players don't need to have prior knowledge of the first game and of Greek mythology to enjoy it. Old fans, however, will catch «delightful references» here and there.

The feed will first appear as a new tab in the mobile app and will allow viewers to switch between a scrollable feed for livestreams and another one for Clips. Like their names imply, the live feed will show users broadcasts from people they already follow and ongoing streams from people they don't based on their watch history.

Legendary Companion Trinkets Datamined in The War Within

With our continued alpha test datamining, we've discovered legendary trinkets associated with none other than our longtime friend Brann Bronzebeard, famed explorer and designated Delve companion in Season 1 of The War Within! While we don't have a lot to go off of right now, this appears very different from most legendaries we are used to. Most interesting is the relation to Bann Bronzebeard, who we already know is the designated Delve companion for Season 1, though the fact that the trinket either summons Brann or buffs him if he's already present suggests that the trinket isn't just meant for use during Delves where he would always be present anyway. There's also a potential hint within the flavor text, in that the trinket is «Entrusted to you by Brann Bronzebeard himself.» We may be reading a little too far into it, but that sounds an awful lot like the trinket could be a reward for maxing out some kind of level, friendship, or reputation track with the explorer.

Now, with The War Within on the horizon, Blizzard has conceived of another way to kick off an expansion with some proper fireworks, by completely demolishing a beloved in-game location.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 Flagships Could Feature High-Capacity 5,500mAh Batteries To Compensate For The Chipset’s Increased Power Consumption

Qualcomm might find it difficult to tame the power consumption of the upcoming Snapdragon 8 Gen 4, despite the chipset reported on multiple occasions to be mass produced on TSMC’s 3nm ‘N3E’ node. Theoretically, an improved manufacturing process should mean that the flagship SoC will be energy-efficient, but a tipster hints that smartphone makers opting to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 4 in their models will add bigger batteries. Companies may compensate for the silicon’s increased power by incorporating bigger cells to deliver that record runtime.

How to sign up for the Rogue Prince of Persia alpha test

After the launch of the excellent Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown at the beginning of 2024, no one was expecting a second game in the franchise so soon. And yet, The Rogue Prince of Persia was revealed during the Triple-I Initiative as a roguelike take on the genre. Coming from the developer of Dead Cells, this game was one of the highlights of the show thanks to it's slick gameplay and unique and fluid art style. There was no release date given, but the game is entering early access May 14. However, you can get your hands on it even earlier if you apply to participate in the alpha test.

LawBreakers Playable Again for First Time in Six Years Thanks to Fan Project

Gaming saw a rise in team-based hero shooters from 2016 through 2018, with games like Overwatch, Battleborn, and LawBreakers as notable standouts. Lawbreakers is long gone, but an unofficial fan project aims to revive it, making it playable for the first time in six years.

LawBreakers Is Returning From The Grave Unofficially

LawBreakers was a game that might have made a bit of a splash initially but died out quickly. If you don’t recall, this FPS hero shooter came out in 2017. The game didn’t live on very long, as it was shut down just a year later. But you might have another chance to enjoy this game with players online. That’s all due to a small team working to bring this game back up through makeshift servers.

Today, we’re learning of a new report that suggests the PlayStation 5 Pro test kits are available for developers to order.

State of the Classes in Diablo 4: A PTR Deep Dive

The Diablo 4 PTR allowed players to jump straight into Sanctuary for a sneak peek at changes coming in Season 4. Everything from new bosses to new itemization was on the table, and enough information was learned to make anyone's head spin. Our Class Leads took the time to analyze some of the buffs and nerfs experienced in the Patch 1.4.0 PTR, and shared their thoughts below on the good, the bad, and the future!

I was a PlayStation Portal hater. Now it’s one of my go-to gaming devices

In November, I reviewed the PlayStation Portal. I was mixed on Sony’s streaming handheld at the time, frustrated with a corner-cutting execution of a good idea. It seemed like a poor value compared to simply slapping a cheaper Backbone controller on a phone. As is often the case with tech reviews, though, I only had a short window to test it out where I was more focused on the more objective side of what the Portal does and doesn’t do. Would my feelings change when I was using it naturally?

Weapon Implicit Affixes to be Adjusted in Season 4 - Diablo 4

In the Public Test Realm for Patch 1.4.0 of Diablo 4, countless items, skills, and stats were heavily altered to prepare the game for its fourth Season, as well as to pave the way for the upcoming Vessel of Hatred expansion. In addition to many of these changes, Implicit Affixes on Weapons have been adjusted as well. These are the fixed Affixes that are tied to the Weapon Type that cannot be altered, such as Vulnerable Damage on Crossbows and Critical Strike Damage on Swords. Many of these Affixes have been reduced significantly, and while it hurts to lose damage output from a change like this, it is a necessary change. Reducing these values along with other changes in Itemization will go a long way toward reducing the bloated damage values that affect the game negatively. By allowing players to deal millions upon millions of damage in a single hit, the sense of scale and player power is lost. On top of that, balancing gameplay becomes much more challenging — thus, it's only natural that Implicit Affixes receive some tweaks at the same time as the rest of the Itemization rework.
