    Baldur's Gate 3 Gameplay To Be Unveiled At PAX East 2020

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    baldursgate3_08.jpg

    If you're like me, you've been wondering what shape Baldur's Gate 3 is going to take. Will it be a traditional isometric PC-oriented RPG like the classic titles of ages past, much like the games that inspired Divinity: Original Sin 2?

    Or will it be something else? Third-person action perhaps? Well, we're going to get our first look at actual gameplay quite soon, on February 27.

    The reveal kicks off at 3:30 PM ET, with Larian creative director Swen Vincke taking the stage at PAX East. Not going to be in Boston? No problem - the reveal will be streamed on YouTube. Check out the announcement trailer below and feel free to wonder what shape this next exciting iteration of one of gaming's most revered franchises will take!

    Top Releases of January 2020

    Valve
    By Valve,
    5c3abf79939f1ae1303ac6f2653ceed9a6c68978.jpg

    The first month of the new decade is in the books, and with that we'll be looking at the top 20 games released in January 2020. As a reminder, we measure monthly top releases by looking at revenue generated during the first two weeks after launch. We'll also be featuring the top 5 free-to-play releases, measured by the total number of unique players acquired during their two-week launch windows. Scroll down to view the lists or check out this handy sale page.

    Game development is global
    If you've followed our previous posts, you know that we like to highlight the developers who are creating these awesome products. Every month, it's remarkable to see how diverse the representation of developers is from around the world. In the past six months alone, top releases were developed in more than 30 different countries across six continents. This diversity ensures that no matter where players live, it's easy to find games with familiar language use, regional pop culture references, local themes & settings and all sorts of other variety that simply wouldn't exist if developers were all from one region. January's new releases brought a surprising amount of content from one region in particular. More than half of January's top releases were developed in Asia, with eight titles coming from Japanese development teams.

    The prevalence of Asian products in January likely comes from a huge variety of factors: change in geographical spending, impact of the Lunar New Year holiday, differences in developer release schedules, and certainly a bit of coincidence. The most exciting part of this surge comes when looking at the products themselves. Anime themes and JRPG elements often perform well with players on Steam, and January included six products from classic anime franchises - Dragon Ball Z, Atelier (3), Utawarerumono and Super Robot Wars. Another exciting thing about these top titles was that almost half of them launched without English localization for either audio or text. Not too long ago, including English support at launch was a requirement for success on Steam. English-speakers are still a huge part of Steam's audience, but the success of January's top releases reinforces the fact that now, more than ever, Steam players come from all over the world and will support a huge variety of language options.

    Many first Steam releases on the list
    One trend that didn't change this month is that of new developers finding success when bringing their first product to Steam. We're excited to welcome 10 development teams on this month's list who are launching their very first product on Steam. Some of these teams have worked together for years, bringing games to other devices or platforms, while others are working together for the first time. Congratulations go out to AQUAPLUSFantastic Passion, Ghostpie Studio, 汉家松鼠 Han-Squirrel StudioPyro Studios, Scavengers Studio, Skookum Arts, Soccer Manager Ltd.Steel Sky ProductionsStudio 8 & Yippee! Entertainment

    2010 was a long time ago
    Finally, it's not very often that we get the opportunity to take a look back at an entire decade and reflect on how much has changed. For those who are nostalgic, curious or even looking for a classic game to explore, we thought we'd look at the top games debuting in January 2010 (sorted by release date). The list for January 2010 is quite different from our normal format, as it contains just 11 games, which happens to be every single game that released on Steam that month. Of these 11 games, only three of them would have charted on today’s Top 20.

    Wings of Prey
    Zero Gear
    Gothic II: Gold Edition
    Greed: Black Border
    Nancy Drew: Warnings at Waverly Academy
    Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000
    Dark Void

    Build of the Month - February 2020
    Each month or so we will post a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

    Depending on how much you want to overclock, you may need to spend a bit more for a better CPU cooler like the NH-D15.

    Unless you are doing a lot of video rendering or streaming, you do not need the 8700K and would get more performance from spending that money elsewhere.

    Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

    Puppy and Dolphin
    Each CPU and motherboard combo must be used together between Puppy and Dolphin, do not mix and match.



    Narwhal and Unicorn
    All of these parts can be mixed and matched to create a build between Narwhal and Unicorn.

    Fortnite's Upcoming Season Is Currently All About Gold

    GameInformer
    By GameInformer,

    1500x500.jpg

    Fortnite chapter 2 – season 2 is fast approaching, and Epic Games isn't wasting time giving players a taste of what to expect. The teases began on Fortnite's official Twitter feed today with a series of images that embrace the color gold and a February 20 launch date.

    fort1.jpgeq_xmfrwoasjfh3.jpgfsdfsdssa.jpgeq_xmgfw4aalcw6.jpg

    Players are now noticing that ordinary items within the game world – be it a couch or filing cabinet – are made entirely of gold, almost like someone is walking around with the Midas touch. The teases will likely continue from now up until the season's official start.

    Until we learn more, behold a gold couch viewed by a banana:
