  1. In today’s training video exercise, Starward Industries and 11-bit studios present you with a brief glimpse of life on Regis III. Initial recon has told us that Regis III seems to be an unusually calm planet, with idyllic and breathtaking vistas in abundance. We’ve seen no signs of herbivores or predators, which should make further human exploration of the planet a walk in the park. *** transmission interrupted -- unknown threat -- damage assessment required -- bzzzzzt *** Not everything is as it seems on Regis III! Life often proves to be much more complicated than what it presents on the surface, doesn’t it? You are Yasna, a highly qualified astrobiologist sent on a scientific mission to discover what lies on the dusty surface of the uncharted, eerie planet, Regis III. When your crew disappears, things quickly get out of hand. The mind-boggling scientific phenomena you experience throughout your journey will bend your understanding of the difference between life and death, and force you to rethink humankind's position as a pinnacle of evolution.

Blade is one of the more famous anti-heroes of the Marvel universe, spanning countless comics, several films and games, and being a cult favourite hero among fans!

  4. The HP Victus 15 can be found among our list of the best gaming laptops under $1,000 because you can get it at affordable prices, or scale it up with more powerful components. The base model that we reviewed is on a rock-bottom sale over at Best Buy, falling to just $479.99, which is an exceptional price for these specs. HP Victus 15: now $479 at Best Buy (was $799) The HP Victus 15 has fallen below $500! It packs a GTX 1650, 12th Gen Intel Core i5, 8GB of RAM (you may want to upgrade that) and a 512GB SSD. The 1080p display has a 144 Hz refresh rate. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/hp-vict...&intl=nosplash They're not high-end specs. This model packs an Intel Core i5-1450H and an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650, which should be fine for older games, but newer games may require that you turn down settings. 8GB of RAM is expected at that price (you may want to upgrade it later), but the 512GB is never a given, so it's nice to see it here. "Despite having an older GTX 1650 GPU, it can handle most contemporary titles in 1080p at high or medium settings, though you may need to turn down to low occasionally," we wrote in our review. In our review, we liked the price and performance (including productivity performance). You will have to uninstall some bloatware, though. This configuration also boasts a 1080p, 144 Hz display and a design that won't stand out too much whether you're in a gaming session at home or working on the go. In general, it's extremely rare to find any type of gaming laptop under $500. Finding any laptop with discrete graphics at that price is tough. That's what makes this deal surprising; sure, it's not the latest and greatest, but for that price, you might not mind playing games on medium instead of ultra.

  5. Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 | RTX 3080 | AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 300Hz | 16GB RAM | 1TB SSD | $2,199.99 $1,699.99 at Newegg (save $500) An immense component combo here that'll smash anything you throw at it, especially at native 1080p. It's not the cheapest we've seen it, but you may even be able to make the most of the 300Hz refresh rate screen with gear like that under the hood. https://www.newegg.com/black-asus-ro...gUSdIhmOL7GeIw Back in July, our hardware writer Katie Wickens called the Asus ROG Strix Scar 15 her favorite gaming laptop(opens in new tab). Now in November, you can pick it up for yourself from Newegg for $1699.99(opens in new tab)—that's $500 off the regular price. It's hard to imagine (or, maybe, accept) that a machine I could easily carry under my arm is more powerful than my once-mighty (and still large, and heavy) desktop rig, but there's no getting around it. The ROG Strix Scar 15—a very cool name, but let's be honest, better suited for an assault rifle than a gaming laptop—rocks an AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU with 16GB DDR4 RAM running at 3200GHz and the pièce de résistance, a GeForce RTX 3080 GPU with 8GB GDDR6. Rounding out the package is a 15.6" 1080p IPS display running at 300Hz, and for storage, a 1TB NVMe M2 SSD. Wireless connectivity comes in the form of WiFi 6 with Asus-exclusive RangeBoost technology, and Bluetooth 5.1. The opti-mechanical keyboard features per-key LED lighting—this is a gaming laptop, remember—and ROG's Intelligent Cooling keeps it all from getting too spicy on your lap. That's a lot of numbers and techno-words, but what's it all mean? For that, let us turn to our review from 2021: We slapped an 88% score on it, declaring the Strix Scar 15 "one of the best 15-inch gaming laptops we've tested this year." We were similarly effusive earlier this year, calling the 300Hz display "positively unchained," and the CPU/GPU combination "nearly as good as it gets when it comes to gaming laptops today." That's a tough recommendation to beat. Do note that the listed purchase price on Newegg is $1799.99. To get the promised $1699.99 price, you'll need to apply the "Zip11" discount code at checkout. Newegg's website says the code will bump 11% off the purchase price but also indicates that it's a "limited offer": The limitation, sadly, is that the discount is capped at $100. Pity, but it's still a seriously good deal on a seriously good laptop. Check out Invitetore Regular Seller Store Here: https://www.invitestore.co/index.php?/forum/3-regular-sellers-section/
  6. SanDisk SSD Plus | 1TB | SATA | 550MB/s reads | 350 MB/s writes | $79.99 $49.99 at Amazon (save $30) A reliable, well-reviewed SATA SSD; we'll call it an oldie but a goodie. You're not going to find a cheaper SSD with this much storage from a good brand, making this a great buy for an older laptop or to replace a HDD in your desktop. SanDisk has been one of the go-to brands for flash memory for as long as digital cameras have used memory cards. Western Digital, which now owns SanDisk, has been one of the biggest names in storage for decades. So it's safe to say an SSD from SanDisk is a safe buy, which is why I'm confident recommending the SanDisk SSD Plus as a ludicrously cheap way to add a full terabyte of solid state storage to your PC. Let me put this deal in context: the SanDisk SSD Plus isn't going to set any speed records. It's a SATA SSD, rated for 535 MB/s reads and 350MB/s writes, which means its read speed is basically hitting the cap of what SATA can offer. For a boot drive, you should now be looking for an NVMe SSD, which can offer much higher speeds. We have a load of recommendations on those in our Black Friday SSD deals guide. The strength of the SanDisk SSD Plus is that it's just cheap as hell—the lowest price I've seen for a 1TB SSD from a solid brand. If you need to bulk out your desktop PC with more storage, you probably have SATA ports and SSD mounting spots to spare; you can add two terabytes of storage here for only $100, three terabytes for $150, etc (I'm really showing off my math skills here). It's also good to note that reviews for this drive are very positive. Again, it's not going to win any races, but you can count on it doing its job. A less-famous brand, Team Group, actually has an SSD on sale for a couple bucks cheaper than normal, so if you're after 2TB, check out this one on Newegg for $94. At $50, the SanDisk SSD Plus is also a perfect drive to buy if you have an aging laptop around that runs off a 2.5-inch HDD or an older, smaller SATA SSD. Upgrading those kinds of laptops tends to be extremely easy, and you could give it a few more years of life with a big storage boost like this. Remember that this drive is suited to bulk storage—fill it up with indie games, videos, less-demanding programs—but, again, don't use it as a boot drive. It's not fast enough to give you the experience running Windows you deserve. For that, check out a few of these NVMe deals we've found while Black Friday hunting. They'll all turbo charge your rig. WD_BLACK SN850X | 1TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,300MB/s read | 6,300MB/s writes | $134.99 $99.99 at Newegg (save $35) The updated SN850X isn't hugely different from the non-X version, but it has a slightly different SanDisk controller and higher performance. The big thing, though, is that it runs much cooler, so you don't really need a heatsinked version. It's also cheaper than the older drive right now, too. https://www.newegg.com/western-digit...xyFDnqM0GvAb1A SK hynix Platinum P41 | 2TB | PCIe 4.0 | 7,000MB/s reads | 6,500MB/s writes | $259.99 $169.99 at Amazon (save $90) This deal on this impressive SK Hynix Platinum P41 might be the cheapest 2TB PCIe 4.0 we've found far. It's a fine SSD with excellent performance. At $169.99, you won't find a faster SSD at this price.

  7. Acer Nitro 5 | Nvidia RTX 3060 | AMD Ryzen 5 5600H | 15.6-inch | 1080p | 144Hz | 8GB RAM | 512GB SSD | $798 $649 at Walmart (save $149) So far the cheapest RTX 3060-based gaming laptop we've found. For this price you're usually looking at a GTX 1650 Ti based machine, at best. But here, you get a genuine 1080p gaming GPU and a quality AMD Ryzen CPU, too. The 8GB of RAM is a bit weak, but the 144Hz screen and 512GB SSD go some way to make up for that slight shortfall. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Acer-Nitr...mpaign_id=9383 Not long ago it was unthinkable you'd be able to get a gaming laptop for $650. That was what you paid for a chunky laptop for office work and not much else. Now you can get a capable gaming laptop for $650, with a real GPU in it—like the entry-level GTX 1650, right? Well, this deal defies that expectation, too: the Acer Nitro 5 has a proper RTX 3060, which means ray tracing and legitimate gaming power on the go.

  8. Meta has announced what it calls a "breakthrough" in a specific area of game-playing AI: software called Cicero that is the first AI to achieve "human-level performance in the popular strategy game Diplomacy". Diplomacy is originally a board game, which has many official and unofficial digital successors, and the reason that it's such an interesting choice is that the core of the game is negotiation: that is, it's a multiplayer game where the players have to constantly bargain with one another. The post announcing Cicero acknowledges various AI 'victories' over humans (fact check: Deep Blue lost to Garry Kasparov before beating him several years later, after which IBM refused a rematch), but says "truly useful, versatile agents will need to go beyond just moving pieces on a board". Thus Cicero is intended to be able to negotiate, persuade, and work with human players to achieve strategic goals in the same way a human would. Diplomacy has long been seen as one of the grand AI challenges for exactly these reasons. You need to understand other players' motivations, adjust strategies on-the-fly, and ultimately win them over to your side. Well… Cicero played on webDiplomacy.net, an online version of the game, and "achieved more than double the average score of the human players and ranked in the top 10 percent of participants who played more than one game." In fact: "Cicero is so effective at using natural language to negotiate with people in Diplomacy that they often favored working with Cicero over other human participants." Betrayal! Rank, foul betrayal! Part of the achievement is that Cicero has not been built on the traditional self-play reinforcement method through which AIs learn games (by playing millions of games against itself or humans and crunching the data). Meta says it incorporates two main elements: "strategic reasoning, as used in agents like AlphaGo and Pluribus, and natural language processing, as used in models like GPT-3, BlenderBot 3, LaMDA, and OPT-175B". An especially crucial part is that Cicero can recognise which players it needs to win over, and come up with a strategy to get them on-side. The software "runs an iterative planning algorithm that balances dialogue consistency with rationality", predicting players' future moves based on dialogue before coming up with a plan that incorporates these predictions. It's not going to take over the world just yet: Cicero is only capable of playing Diplomacy, though of course Meta's ambitions for this software extend far beyond an old board game. The company reckons this could have a big impact on AI chat assistants, allowing them to for example hold learning conversations and dialogues that teach humans new skills. "Alternatively, imagine a video game in which the non player characters (NPCs) could plan and converse like people do—understanding your motivations and adapting the conversation accordingly—to help you on your quest of storming the castle." Now that is kind of interesting: maybe Edge magazine was right about Doom. What if you could talk to the monsters?

  9. Two years after the original announcement and multiple delays, the next-gen enhanced version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is almost here. Today, CD Projekt RED has shared details on the project's features as well as gameplay footage for the first time. Watch the free update's trailer above, which shows off recorded footage from a high-end PC. The studio is touting ray-traced global illumination support across all current-gen platforms with this update. Other graphical additions include screen space reflections, dynamic resolution scaling, as well as texture and foliage upgrades. Specifically on the consoles side, quality and performance modes (60 FPS) are being introduced, while PlayStation 5 players will be happy to know that haptic feedback and adaptive triggers support is incoming. Other additions include Netflix show-inspired content that include a new mission and its recognizable Nilfgaardian armor, pause during cutscenes, HUD customization, a photo mode, a new camera, and even features from popular mods on PC. Cloud-based cross-save support across all platforms are here too, letting players pick up the adventure where they left off from PC, Xbox Series X|S, or PlayStation 5. While anyone who already owns the current versions of the game is getting the upgrade content for free, CD Projekt will be releasing The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Complete Edition as well. It will contain the base experience plus all post-launch content, from the free DLC to the story expansions - Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. Only a digital release will be available at first, with a physical edition coming at a later date. Lastly, the last-generation version still available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch aren't being completely left behind either. The studio plans to bring gameplay improvements and the Netflix show-themed add-ons to these platforms later. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's next-gen update and the Complete Edition version will be available on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 on December 14, 2022. A remake of the original The Witcher as well as a new trilogy set in the same universe are currently in development.

  10. Horror is hard to do right, especially when not relying on cheap, reliable jump-scares. It’s why the original Silent Hill trilogy are regarded as classics, while their many sequels and imitators are largely forgotten. Despite being the debut release from tiny two-person indie studio Rose-Engine, sci-fi horror adventure Signalis joins that coveted pantheon as one of the best in the genre, and a personal favorite from a jam-packed year. At a glance, Signalis is familiar and accessible (right down to the low-fi PS1-inspired graphics) to anyone who has played a classic-style survival horror game. Played from an overhead perspective, there’s a labyrinth of interconnected rooms to explore, many locked doors, a mixture of logical and more abstract puzzles and an assortment of monsters to shoot. Inventory space is at a premium, healing is finite, and the game can only be saved at safe-rooms where you can stash unused items in a storage chest. screenshot-2022.11.24-03_15_401669277740485.jpg Aesthetically, it feels like a refinement of those PlayStation gems as well. Backdrops are pin-sharp, crisp pixel-art, while characters are smoothly animated 3D models, always clear and readable despite their relatively small size. The UI is similarly sharp, despite its diegetic retro-tech aesthetics, and the map screen is especially good, automatically marking off any door you’ve been near as locked, barred or open. Audio-wise, it channels the best in the business, with some very Akira Yamaoka industrial drones accompanying quieter moments, chaotic, panicked noise kicking in during combat, and an assortment of nostalgic tones, beeps and warbles accompanying menu actions. It’s old-school survival horror done right. Combat is tense and resource-limited, encouraging evasion and ammo-hoarding. Puzzles are cleverly designed, stalling progress just long enough to deliver a Eureka moment. The only truly unfamiliar mechanical element is the radio tuner. Found early on, it allows you to listen into and decode radio signals. Sometimes just creepy numbers stations, other times key clues to items, and occasionally it even gets used in combat. While not game-redefining, it’s a consistent enough presence to put a refreshing spin on even Signalis’ more familiar systems. Other elements are borrowed more directly from the Resident Evil 1 remake, including a ‘panic item’ slot for escaping close combat, and a limited supply of incendiaries to burn corpses and permanently clear frequently traveled halls. While most similar to Resident Evil mechanically, its overall atmosphere hews far closer to Silent Hill, telling the story of a lone technician android named Elster descending into metaphorical (and potentially literal) hell in search of her missing co-pilot. screenshot-2022.11.24-03_17_261669277846170.jpg While Signalis trades in familiar sci-fi horror tropes (including an assortment of warped biomechanical creatures to shoot), this is psychological horror at heart. It’s a character-driven and emotionally charged story. An intentionally fragmented and dreamlike downward spiral, following a potentially unreliable narrator—where Elster goes, the player is dragged forcibly along, whether they want to or not. To go into too much detail risks spoiling some surprises, but Signalis eschews sudden, loud scares in favor of making the player feel constantly insecure, from persistent resource scarcity to hard narrative curveballs. Enemies can rise again in once-cleared locations, the game’s perspective may suddenly shift from locked overhead to first-person, and plot twists may carry heavy enough implications to demolish any previously-held understanding of what’s happening. Machine women with machine minds So much of why Signalis works hinges on its worldbuilding. While mostly set in an incredibly cursed mining facility on a remote planet, there are dozens of diaries, logs and documents painting a broader and more tragic picture. The universe of Signalis is some alternate, dark timeline where most technology stalled around early ‘90s levels, but strange new sciences allowed the creation of sentient androids (known as Replikas) and interstellar expansion, and a war between a largely-unseen Empire, and the hideously fascistic Eusan nation. It’s under the Eusan banner that the cast struggle, and despite the sci-fi setting and many characters being man-made constructs, their stories are hauntingly human. They’re ordinary people trying to live normal lives while the gears of their cruel society threaten to grind them into dust. It would be horrifying enough without dark secrets lurking deep in distant planets and pseudo-undead androids stalking the halls. With them, it’s a rich, layered dessert of despair, lending motivation to even the most desperate character’s actions. If it weren’t for this additional depth, I don’t think Signalis would stick the landing narratively. The moment-to-moment storytelling is intentionally fragmented. Timelines are uncertain, and while Elster’s goal is always to continue her search deeper into the facility, some elements are always vague enough to invite interpretation. It’s in these narrative gaps that the earthy, grounded world-building fits, and replaying in search of secrets and alternate endings only becomes more satisfying when revisiting old scenes with additional context. You're not here It’s hard to talk about Signalis without mentioning its many inspirations, which it openly and eagerly references. From nods to works of classic horror such as The King In Yellow, to sequences riffing off heavyweight anime like Ghost In The Shell and Evangelion, there’s familiar touchstones everywhere. Famous paintings and haunting classical music both ground the game’s setting in the familiar, while further accentuating its more surreal elements in how they’re used. There’s just enough of the real world here, framed strangely enough to feel like a dream. Even after completing it twice, the only real complaint I can level at Signalis is that inventory management is a little too fiddly. While you can store endless amounts in your save-room stash, Elster can only carry six items. Five, once you’re carrying around the frequently-used flashlight, and some puzzles require multiple spaces free. Leaving healing items behind and only carrying one gun can mitigate frustrations, but there will be times where you’re arbitrarily forced to backtrack through hostile hallways to store gear. Despite this one persistent wrinkle, Signalis is one of the best horror games I’ve played in years. Tense, upsetting and thought-provoking. It takes a hundred familiar elements, inspirations and references and weaves them into something entirely new, and thoroughly worthwhile.

  11. Sony's PS5 console has a powerful GPU, and a great selection of games, but it comes with a modest 825 GB SSD inside. Popular games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War and Marvel's Avengers can get close or even exceed 200GB of disk space all by themselves. If you can only fit a handful of games on the PS5's main SSD, you're going to be very limited. Fortunately, Sony has a simple solution. You can add a second, M.2 SSD to hold more games. However, PS5 has some very explicit requirements as you need to have a PCIe 4.0 drive with a 5,500 MBps or higher sequential read speed, a heatsink and the whole thing cannot be any thicker than 11.25mm. While you can add an aftermarket heatsink to any SSD, it's easier to get a drive that comes with the heatsink onboard. Samsung's 980 Pro SSD is not only fast enough to meet the PS5 SSD speed requirements, but it also is available with a heatsink that's just the right size. And now you can get the 2TB capacity for just $189 at Amazon(opens in new tab), which is an epic low price. Samsung 980 Pro 2TB with Heatsink: now $189 at Amazon (was $219) Samsung's popular, powerful SSD boasts sequential read and write speeds of 7,000 and 5,100 MBPs, along with 1 million random read and write IOPS. The built-in heatsink ensures it won't throttle when inside a PS5. While it's not quite as fast as the yet-to-be-released Samsung 990 Pro, the 980 Pro is more than quick enough for your gaming needs. When our lab tested the Samsung 980 Pro in a PS5, it read at 5,668.6 MBps. It also loaded games very quickly, starting Assassin's Creed Valhalla in 51 seconds, Mass Effect: Andromeda in 26 seconds and Elden Ring in a mere 22 seconds.

  12. Netflix is seemingly going outside of the mobile platform for one of its upcoming games. A new jobs listing notes that the streamer is hiring for a AAA game on PC that seems like it will be a shooter of some sort. As spotted by MobileGamer.biz, the post in question is vague, but is looking for a game director for an upcoming AAA PC game. “We’re looking for a creative and highly-skilled Game Director to help us forge the game direction and creative vision on a brand-new AAA PC game,” says the listing. “As Game Director, you will be the creative leader of one of Netflix’s first generation of internally developed original games.” This is notable in that Netflix has typically only released games on the mobile platform and this specifically calls out the PC. The other part of the listing sticks out because it states that “experience with FPS and/or third-person shooter games is preferred.” Many of the games that Netflix currently offers are relatively casual or aren’t based around action. The listing also says it will have “live operations” and that the ideal candidate will have “extensive experience” with making live service games. However, like the other games on Netflix’s platform, it will seemingly not have microtransactions as the listing notes that this director would be able to “create, ship, and run a game without any competing design constraints due to monetization.” It also seems as though Netflix would potentially be looking to put this world into a film or TV series. The job post is asking for candidates that will be able to make characters and a narrative that are “worthy of a Netflix film/TV series.” This director would also have to “help with expansion of the IP into other media.” This studio behind this listing is likely the same new team being led by Chacko Sonny, who left Blizzard Entertainment in September 2021. He was lauded as a “stabilizing force” according to Bloomberg’s anonymous sources and Netflix VP of Gaming Mike Verdu praised Sonny’s decision to work with the streaming giant. Netflix has been making big moves in the gaming space as of late. It acquired Oxenfree developer Night School and mobile game studios Boss Fight Entertainment and Next Games, while also opening up new teams in Finland and California, the latter of which is Sonny’s studio.

  13. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt‘s big PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC update has been a long time coming. CD Projekt Red has now finally showed off this upgrade in action through a new trailer and went further into detail in a recent stream. As expected, The Witcher 3 on PS5 and Xbox Series X will support a performance and quality mode while the Xbox Series S will only have a 30 frames per second mode and a 60 frames per second mode. Quality mode will have global illumination ray tracing, better screen space reflections, and dynamic resolution scaling to ensure players get a solid 30 frames. Performance mode will aim for 60 frames per second and also have dynamic resolution scaling to more consistently hit 60 frames. PC users will get all of that and more, which includes new ultra plus settings that let players go above and beyond if their hardware is strong enough. Visuals will generally be of a higher quality when compared to the last generation, so players will have a more detailed game no matter what mode they pick. Foliage and textures have been improved, mods have been integrated, and many other small changes like tall smoke plumes from distant fires are just some of the tiny changes the team added to make for a more striking game. Those on PS5 will also get adaptive trigger and haptic feedback support. Since the vibration in the controller channels the actual audio from the game, the rumbles will more accurately reflect what is happening on-screen. And like Cyberpunk 2077, all systems will have access to cloud saves. This lets players transfer their progress from one platform to another. This new update will also include a host of quality-of-life changes. There will be a new Photo Mode that lets players pause the action and frame their own pictures. The game now has a new closer camera and players can even go into the settings and choose whether or not to have the classic camera or this new one. It’s even possible to independently pick different camera settings for combat, exploration, or when riding Roach. Combat has gotten some tweaks, too. Instead of slowing down time to cast magic, players can just hold the trigger and use the other buttons as shortcuts for five different spells, which makes the action a little faster. It’s possible to do this on a keyboard, but it wasn’t specifically shown. It will be possible to customize and put filters on the map so it won’t be as cluttered. Geralt’s sprint button can now be activated when pushing in the left analog stick. Subtitles size options give players more control over how big the subtitles are. It’s possible to now pause cutscenes. The mini-map and and objectives can now fade away during exploration. Just about every new feature is on a toggle, so players can choose whether or not to implement them. The team noted that there are many quality-of-life changes in this update and these are only some of the ones players can expect. The previously announced cosmetics from the Netflix series weren’t entirely shown off in the stream (but make a brief appearance in the trailer), but they will be part of a new questline so they feel like they are naturally part of the experience. Geralt’s armor and swords from the first two seasons will be in the game as well as an alternative outfit for Jaskier and the Nilfgaardian armor. Jaskier’s outfit can be seen at around the 25:40 mark of the stream below. Check out Invitestore Regular Seller Store Here: https://www.invitestore.co/index.php?/forum/3-regular-sellers-section/
