F1 2018 - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Natalie Clayton)

Feeling the need for speed on this toasty Saturday afternoon? It might not be the newest car in the garage, but Codemasters are giving away F1 2018 over on the Humble Store all weekend. It’s yours to keep “while stocks last”, so feel free to treat yourself to a few high-speed laps.

Aeon Must Die! - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Natalie Clayton)

A sharp-as-hell slasher set to hit Steam and PS4 next year, Aeon Must Die made an unexpected splash during Sony’s State Of Play showcase last Thursday. Unfortunately, it’s not the game folks are talking about in the wake of Limestone’s debut. Instead, the game has found itself locked in a minefield of allegations, as former developers accuse bosses at Limestone of abuse, harassment, unwarranted firings and IP theft.

What’s a bit of deicide, anyway? Announced as part of QuakeCon At Home’s opening ceremony, Doom Eternal‘s first campaign expansion is The Ancient Gods: Part 1. Doomguy’s first real post-release outing wants to ask if all that supernatural murder was worth the trouble it caused in the heavens. It’s Doom, so I reckon the answer is yes – and any follow-up concerns should be easily rectified with a fistful of lead and a few pints of chainsaw fuel.

Have you played Quake? The eldritch lords at RPS HQ don’t let me write HYP posts, of course, but I thought I’d ask anyway. See, it’s QuakeCon At Home this weekend, and Bethesda are giving away a seminal piece of shooter history – and every character in its arena-blasting descendant Quake Champions – for free ’til the end of tomorrow.

A black and white illustration called 'Cat In Gloves' by J Grandville. It shows a smug looking tabby cat standing on its hind legs, pulling on a pair of human gloves.

Hello reader! It has, again, been a hot one, so Alice0 is lucky to still be in the sea this week. I, sadly, am not. I have eggs I need to use up, but anything egg based seems too hot to contemplate right now. Please, won’t somebody take these eggs.

You know what else generates heat? My PC, which is why I am loathe to turn it on for any reason that isn’t absolutely necessary. Thank God games fall into that category, eh? This week team RPS still has its collective eye trained on Grounded, but we’re also still seeing some Death Stranding pop up. Plucky newcomer Fall Guys has made a bold new entry this week, though.

QuakeCon At Home is live this weekend on Twitch, though it really should be called BethFest when you look at the schedule. The event has moved wholly online thanks to the Covid-19 pandemic, and the rescheduled celebration of id’s and Bethesda’s games has an intriguing schedule. Here are a few of the highlights.

A photo of Gigabyte's RTX 2080 Super Waterforce graphics card.

To help you find the best [cms-block] around, I check graphics card prices every single week for both UK and US buyers. This week, prices have stayed pretty static in the grand scheme of things, but there was one graphics card deal in particular that caught my eye: this water-cooled RTX 2080 Super from Gigabyte, which is down to $690. That’s a drop of $50 compared to the cheapest card I was able to find last week, and it comes with its own cooling block built in as well. With RTX 2080 Ti prices sky-rocketing due to low stock levels, this is a decent buy for those after a high-end GPU at the moment.

Batman: Arkham City - Game of the Year Edition - contact@rockpapershotgun.com (Craig Pearson)

For years, there have been rumours that the Batman: Arkham City developers Rocksteady Studios were working on a Suicide Squad game. We dispatched our own squads to check out those rumours, but each time they vanished forever. Turns out we needn’t have bothered with the one we sent out last week, because now the game has been confirmed in a tweet from the studio that shows a miserable looking Superman with a Suicide Squad target on his head. We’ll find out more on August 22.

Graphics card deals

Graphics card prices have remained pretty steady this week, making it a bad time to pick up a great graphics card bargain. In truth, you’re probably better off waiting until Nvidia and AMD reveal their next-gen GPUs if you’re after a higher-end GPU, but if you just can’t wait and need a new graphics card right now, then there are still some good GPU deals worth snapping up.

There’s been a decent price drop of $50 on the RTX 2080 Super in the US this week, for example, so to help you get the best price on your new graphics card purchase, I’ve put together this list of all the cheapest graphics card prices around right now so you can see exactly how each graphics card deal compares with the competition and whether it’s a good buy. In case you need a refresher, I’ll also tell you exactly what each card is capable of when it comes to gaming performance, and how much prices have changed week-on-week.

A purple fuzzy farmer with a straw hat, chewing a stalk of wheat, talks to the camera. In the background is a field with a wooden fence, inside which a burger with curly fry legs capers about.

Since time was exposed as a capitalist scam, I have less problem accepting that Bugsnax first revealed itself two months ago. The surreal action adventure about fuzzy muppety creatures eating and then becoming walking strawberries now has a more revealing trailer. It looks more approachable but still pretty weird.
