Assassin's Creed® Origins

If you're curious about Assassin's Creed: Origins but haven't played it yet because it's just too damn expensive, today would be a good day to check out the Humble Monthly Bundle, where you can pick it up—along with a bunch of super-secret mystery games—for just $12. 

The Humble Monthly is a subscription-based package that delivers one big game (or sometimes more), which is kind of like an upcard in a lazy poker metaphor, and then a bunch of other games that you don't get to know about until the end of the month, when the next month's bundle becomes available. 

Last month, for instance, started with Northgard, Absolver, and Mutant Year Zero: Road to Eden (hence the "sometimes more" descriptor above) and then tacked on Tannenberg, Minit, She Remembered Caterpillars, Steel Rats, Dandara, and A Short Hike. That's a serious steal for $12. 

This month's bundle is a great deal on the lead game alone: Assassin's Creed: Origins still goes for the full $60/£50/€60 on Steam, and has never dipped below $18. And you can cancel Humble Monthly subscriptions at any time (unless you sign up for one of the slightly-discounted term plans) and keep all the games you've received up to that point, meaning that you can snag Origins for 12 bucks and be done with it if that's all you're after. 

The current Humble Monthly Bundle will be available for purchase until May 3, which is also when the bonus games will be revealed.

HDR on PC continues to be a bit of a mess these days, but provided you haven’t been put off by the astronomical prices of the [cms-block]s for HDR or, indeed, the ongoing debacle surrounding Windows 10 support for it, then the next step on your path to high dynamic range glory is to get an HDR compatible graphics card.

Below, you’ll find a complete list of all the Nvidia and AMD graphics cards that have built-in support for HDR, as well as everything you need to know about getting one that also supports Nvidia and AMD’s own HDR standards, G-Sync HDR and FreeSync 2. I’ve also put together a list of all the PC games that support HDR as well. There aren’t many of them, all told, but I’ll be updating this list with more titles as and when they come out so it’s always up to date.

We see the Blue Yeti USB microphone go on sale from time to time, and just a few days ago, it was marked down to $109.99 with Assassin's Creed Odyssey bundled with it. If you missed out on that deal, don't fret—what we consider to be the best microphone for most people is on sale again, this time for $79.99, with Assassin's Creed Origins.

It's on sale at GameStop with a unique red and gray color combination that appears only to be available at that particular retailer. Otherwise, the only red versions we've seen are red and black.

Color aside, this is a popular mic that is great for gaming and streaming, for the money.

If there’s one advantage to Assassin’s Creed’s just-a-simulation framing device, it’s that you can bend the rules (and timeline) occasionally. While it makes no sense temporally, those who have been hunting in-game achievements in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey can cash in their earned Club Units to make Origins hero Bayek of Siwa an officer aboard your flagship, the Adrestia. While he doesn’t have much to say, it’s nice to see him still finding work four hundred years before he was born.

Walk a mile in someone else s shoes.

It s a common enough idiom, a plea for empathy and understanding. Taken literally, it s also a phrase that rings true for gamers. We walk countless miles in the shoes of our favourite characters, learning to love and feel for them along the way. But despite all the miles we travel, we rarely give our well-worn virtual footwear its due. Virtual shoes are just another one of the many small, mundane details that make the worlds in which we play believable, and most players ignore them. Luckily, one photographer has made it his mission to document the art of virtual shoes.

While we re all busy digging into ancient Greece, Ubisoft haven t forgotten last year s Ptolomaic playground, Assassin s Creed Origins. During development, they partnered with Egyptologists, and in doing so they apparently discovered that translating hieroglyphs is very difficult and time consuming. In response, they started looking into ways to streamline the process using machine learning, and this week, they presented their initial progress.

Take a look at their introductory video explaining what they re trying to achieve:

There are a lot of dads in video games, and their number only grows. A rising tide of stubbled, emotionally-reserved dadflesh, heralding a new age of “serious storytelling” in games. Assassin s Creed Origins stands out from this paternal wave by showcasing a different kind of videogame dad. Egyptian proto-sheriff Bayek, who displays as much tenderness as he does the ability to stab things really, really well.
