Microsoft has been making game controllers for more than 20 years, and it’s settled on a basic formula. Thus, the latest revision of the iconic Xbox controller isn’t so much a revolution as it is an evolution. The 2020 Xbox Wireless Controller ships with the Xbox Series S and Series X, but it works almost as well on other devices, and the design is subtly improved from the Xbox One-era gamepad. The result is an excellent, well-supported controller you should consider no matter how you game.

Microsoft’s Windows 11 22H2 feature update is barreling down the final stretch to being released next month or in early October, with a host of new features. My favorite (and, I expect, yours) will be a new twist on a proven feature, one that’s central to Windows 10 and Windows 11. Yes, I’m talking about Snap. No, not Windows Snap, or even the version of Snap that was built into Windows 11. No, I’m talking about Snap Bar, and the related Snap Groups that accompany it. Snap Bar simply takes Windows 11’s existing Snap feature and elevates it, making it…

It’s always a shame when a game manages to get some things so right but others so wrong. OverBorder Studios’ third-person fantasy RPG Thymesia is a prime example of this, with satisfying, high-energy combat that rewards patience and a familiarity with its admittedly narrow progression systems immediately standing out as something special. At the same time, its twisting tale about a plague-torn kingdom and the secret agent that can save it, as well as the inconsistent quality of the exotic locations it takes place across, are largely half-baked and render the entire adventure easily forgettable.Thymesia’s story follows Corvus, a generic…

Final Fantasy producer Naoki Yoshida thinks revolutionary leaps in the video game industry are on the horizon. Speaking to Insider, Yoshida said the next decade could see revolutionary gaming experiences due to the development of new devices, citing virtual reality chips as an example. In fact, Yoshida expected things to move a bit quicker than they have, but said the semiconductor shortage is likely to blame.“This would dramatically increase server performance and elements that could be simulated,” Yoshida said. “That could lead to the creation of a living world that resembles reality, or even new ideas that create an actual…
