Bethesda has released a brand new Starfield video, this time giving an overview of the game’s overall setting, known as 'The Settled Systems'. Narrated by Bethesda Game Studios Design Director Emil Pagliarulo, the video explains that Starfield will transport players to the Settled Systems in the year 2330. The Settled Systems are located in “a relatively small pocket of the Milky Way, in an area that extends outward from our Solar System for approximately 50 light-years.” Giving some background information on the Settled Systems, Pagliarulo reveals that twenty years before the events of Starfield, the two largest factions in the Systems, the United Colonies and the Freestar Collective, were engaged in a “bloody colony war”. By the time Starfield starts, the factions have settled into an “uneasy peace” but that doesn’t make the game world any less dangerous for wide-eyed explorers.

Linux and gaming are starting to come together a lot more lately. The Steam Deck is on the way with Linux installed, and Juno just announced a new Linux gaming laptop called the Neptune 17 with specs that easily rival many Windows models. As this is a high-end gaming PC, it comes with plenty of power, and you can customize it to add some more power if you need to. You can choose between an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 or an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 . Either one will handle most games, but of course, you’re limited by the games offered on Linux. In spite of the high-end graphics card, the display is an FHD Panel, so you won’t be able to get up to any 4K gaming. In terms of RAM, you can get as little as 16GB and as much as 64GB. For your SSD , you can snag a small 256GB model if you want to keep the price down a bit, but you can get a 2TB SSD if you want to go bigger. Of course, you’re limited to the games available on Linux. While the list of games is growing, it’s still … [Read more...] about This New Linux Gaming Laptop Has the Specs to Run Anything
What just happened? Barring a load of RGB and features such as tempered glass sides, the basic design of desktop gaming PCs has changed little over the years. But Gigabyte has unveiled a concept that's very different from the standard fare: a modular system with integrated 5G that it calls the "future of gaming." Best known for its range of graphics cards and motherboards, Gigabyte has just revealed Project Cielo by Aorus. Cielo, which means sky in Spanish, is a concept, so Gigabyte is a little light on the details. We do know it uses a portable, modular design split into three sections: the main PC system is housed in the top; the battery module is in the middle; and there's a Bluetooth speaker module in the bottom. The idea is that the battery and Bluetooth speaker modules can be separated from the PC to become speakers for smart devices, while the combination of PC and battery modules allows it to be used as a portable gaming machine—for those who prefer desktops to … [Read more...] about Gigabyte says its modular 5G PC is the future of gaming
If you’ve heard about Pop!_OS , you might have seen people often referring to it as the best Windows alternative or the ideal Linux distribution for gaming. Here’s what’s different about this Linux distribution What Is Pop!_OS? Pop!_OS is a Linux distribution (commonly called a distro) developed by a firm called System76 . Put simply, a Linux distribution is an operating system built on the Linux kernel . Linux is open-source, free, and an excellent alternative to Windows and macOS. Since 2005, System76 has been manufacturing Linux computers that ship with a distro called Ubuntu preinstalled rather than Windows. In 2017, the company created its own distro, Pop!_OS, based on Ubuntu, and began offering it as an alternative. What Makes Pop!_OS Different? There are a lot of significant factors that set Pop!_OS apart from Windows, macOS, and even other distros. Here are some of them. Pop!_OS Is Free To Use and Ad-Free Being an open-source project, Pop!_OS is … [Read more...] about What Is Pop!_OS?
Microsoft is worried about remote working. Here's why Watch Now Microsoft has announced new features across Teams, Microsoft 365 and its Viva platform that aim to put frontline workers – such as doctors, engineers and others not tied to their desks – on equal footing with information workers, the company says in a blogpost . Microsoft is rolling out a public preview of Microsoft Endpoint Manager for managing devices that run on Android Open Source Project (AOSP), which developers use to build custom implementations of Android. Endpoint Manager already supports iOS and Android. The expansion of Endpoint Manager to open-source Android is aimed at purpose-built devices, such as RealWear head-mounted wearables, which already have integration with Teams. "With new developments in Microsoft Endpoint Manager, it's easy to locate a lost device so workers can spend more time on customers and tasks," Microsoft said.

Sony's bullish-if-slow attitude toward launching its biggest PlayStation exclusives on Windows PCs will continue in January 2022 with a release that pretty much everybody saw coming. The critically acclaimed 2018 reboot of God of War will be coming to PC. What fans probably didn't expect, however, was for Sony to ally with Nvidia for the release. The PC version of God of War , arriving on January 14, 2022, will retail for $49.99, and its Steam listing already includes some technical details as of Wednesday morning . The most interesting addition is entirely new for Sony Interactive Entertainment launches on PC: support for Nvidia's Deep Learning Super Sampling (DLSS) standard . More “super” for Sony than FSR, apparently DLSS requires Nvidia graphics cards from the RTX 2000 and RTX 3000 series because the feature needs those GPUs' dedicated processing cores, which use machine learning algorithms to analyze and upscale lower-resolution gaming images on the fly. Run … [Read more...] about ’s 2018 reboot arrives on PC in January 2022
In brief: The Raspberry Pi Foundation has announced a new collaboration with Lego Education aimed at increasing the impact and reach of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) learning. The first offspring of said collaboration is the Raspberry Pi Build HAT (Hardware Attached on Top), a $25 add-on board for the Raspberry Pi that uses the same RP2040 chip developed by the foundation. It plugs in using the 40-pin GPIO header on the mini computer and can control up to four Lego Technic sensors and motors from the Lego Education SPIKE portfolio. The foundation said the new HAT works with all Raspberry Pi boards featuring a 40-pin GPIO header including the Raspberry Pi Zero and Raspberry Pi 4. And if you’re willing to use a ribbon cable or other extension device, it can also be used with the Raspberry Pi 400. The Build HAT was designed with all of its components on the bottom, freeing up space on top for an extra mini breadboard or even Lego mini … [Read more...] about Raspberry Pi’s new Build HAT makes it easier to integrate Legos into projects
