Fixes for Dragon Ball FighterZ’ connectivity issues are coming. In a video released today, producer Tomoko Hiroki laid out plans for one patch late this month that “might not fix everything,” and another in mid to late March. The plan is to “gradually resolve the issue.” That is certainly a plan.

Beautiful adventure game Rime wasn’t quite as beautiful when it was released on the Nintendo Switch back in November, suffering from severe frame rate drops, bad pop-in, faded colors and poor lower resolution textures.

While I am not the biggest fan of the live-action Transformers movies, I do appreciate the “realistic” robot and vehicle designs the series has spawned.

Man, I don’t know what it is about it, but this might be the best Lego Millennium Falcon ever.
Most mechanical keyboard switches have two positions—off and on. Either the key is activated, or it’s not. The switches in the Wooting One keyboard are different. Like the analog trigger on a gamepad, they detect a range of motion. I wouldn’t say it’s something every PC gamer needs, but it can definitely change the…
