The company revealed 3 new gaming monitors with G-SYNC ULTIMATE certification at CES 2021 this year, with the ASUS PG32UQX (peak brightness of 1400 nits), MSI MEG MEG381CQR (HDR 600), and LG 34GP950G (HDR 600). All of these monitors are G-SYNC ULTIMATE gaming displays.

These are the G-SYNC ULTIMATE requirements, before they were changed recently:

Anthony Garreffa | Video Cards | Mon, Jan 18 2021 9:16 PM CST

NVIDIA might have delayed the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti reveal, but the company has taken the time to ninja-launch its new GeForce GT 1010 graphics card.

The new GeForce GT 1010 graphics card should be packing the Pascal GP108 GPU, under 4GB and more likely a 2GB framebuffer. TechPowerUp reports that their sources say the GeForce GT 1010 will pack 256 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 RAM while the GPU will have a base clock of 1228MHz and boost clock of 1468MHz.

NVIDIA seems to replacing its ageing GeForce GT 710 graphics card with the new GeForce GT 1010 graphics card, with the GT 710 released in January 2016. We're now in January 2021 and NVIDIA is replacing that card, and as VideoCardz points out: "The purpose of the GeForce GT 1010 seems unclear. Most integrated graphics cards are already faster than this SKU, especially in 2021. NVIDIA is likely trying to sell their overstock of Pascal GPUs".

This lighting mod for Cyberpunk 2077 makes it look like E3 2018 build

Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Mon, Jan 18 2021 8:07 PM CST

Cyberpunk 2077 is one of the best looking games ever made, but a new lighting mod wants to bring back the look and style that CD PROJEKT RED showed off... during the E3 2018 build of the game. This is what I'm talking about:

The new Cyberpunk 2077 E3 2018 Lighting mod uses unused files in the game, and attempts to restore the look anf style of the lighting from the E3 2018 build of the game.

The modder explains: "I made some changes to the main env, to bring the same look we had in 2018 (not everyone likes it) but, as usual, CDPR leaves many unused files within its builds and this helps us a lot in terms of modding. Before we had to use a command to have such lighting, but ner everyone could use it because of DLSS and several other problems, like mirrors, inventory etc. But now everyone can use".

Battlefield 6: 'soft reboot', inspired by BF3 with 128-player battles

Anthony Garreffa | Gaming | Mon, Jan 18 2021 7:11 PM CST

EA DICE is hard at work at whatever Battlefield 6 eventuates into, but according to Tom Henderson in the video below, the game will be a "soft reboot" of Battlefield 3 and heavily inspired by it.

Battlefield 6 will not only be inspirted by Battlefield 3, but it will have huge large scale battles with support for up to 128 players -- something we heard rumors of a few months ago now. At the time, we heard that 32 v 32 would be the norm for BF6 while previous-gen console versions in the PS4 and Xbox One will only support up to 32 players.

It wouldn't be a new Battlefield game if DICE didn't add that all-important battle royale mode, which is another thing that Battlefield 6 will have. So we're looking at a Battlefield reboot + 128 player support + next-gen graphics + hopefully next-gen destruction + battle royale. The last few Battlefield games have been disappointing to me, so I'm hoping DICE actually blows us away and brings Battlefield back to the top with Battlefield 6.

Battlefield 6 may surprisingly come to these older consoles too

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Mon, Jan 18 2021 6:26 PM CST

YouTuber and known leaker Tom Henderson is back again with more Battlefield 6 info, and it's possible the game could also release on PS4 and Xbox One consoles alongside next-gen systems.

Battlefield 6 may surprisingly come to these older consoles too 12 | TweakTown.com

Battlefield 6 may not be a next-gen PS5, Xbox Series S/X, and PC exclusive after all, and could be a cross-gen release. "I was told the next Battlefield will also be coming to last-gen consoles, that being the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One," Henderson said in a recent video.

Henderson also says the 128-player mode will be only available for select maps, and 32v32 will be the standard. the 64v64 maps and game types will also be exclusive to next-gen consoles and PC; PS4 and Xbox One won't be able to support them. Sources also told Henderson that this year's Battlefield will have graphical downgrades and reduced destruction, which is to be expected from the limited Jaguar-based SoCs.

GTA 6 could push CPUs to their limits with new next-gen NPC tech

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Mon, Jan 18 2021 2:41 PM CST

A new patent filed by Take-Two Interactive in October 2020 sheds light on possible next-gen NPC tech in Grand Theft Auto 6.

GTA 6 could push CPUs to their limits with new next-gen NPC tech 34 | TweakTown.com

The patent itself is immensely technical and describes new advanced methods to improve in-game NPC movement schemes and virtual navigation. The documents are actually pretty illuminating and highlight how NPC systems actually work in Rockstar's games; the NPCs and vehicles move linearly across nodes throughout the game world.

The information is admittedly difficult to decipher, but the main gist seems to be that Take-Two (and by extension, Rockstar Games) wants to find ways to enhance its NPC systems to allow more immersion and realistic interactions. This ranges from how characters move, what they do, how they collide and interact with the game world, and how NPCs drive across huge metropolises. The document specifically focuses on vehicles and strongly indicates that Grand Theft Auto 6 (and other Take-Two games) will have next-level NPC AI, especially when it comes to vehicles.

How to move Xbox screenshots to a USB stick automatically

Derek Strickland | Gaming | Sun, Jan 17 2021 10:52 PM CST

Want to move your captured screenshots and video to a USB stick or external device? Here's how to do it.

How to move Xbox screenshots to a USB stick automatically 43 | TweakTown.com

Unlike the PS5, the Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X consoles don't let users easily transfer/export screenshots to USB sticks. Instead, the sticks or external USB devices have to be formatted and configured as separate storage. Here's how to do it so you can auto-save your captures to a USB device and not have to mess around with the confusing and awkward Xbox LIVE/One Drive sharing features.

First you'll need a USB 3.0 device. Older USB 2.0 drives aren't compatible (again this is unlike the PS4 and PS5, which both allow you to use older drives to store console-generated media). Then you'll need to properly format the drive. Here's a step-by-step guide with pictures.

Zack Snyder's Justice League no longer 4-part series, now 4-hour movie

Anthony Garreffa | TV, Movies & Home Theatre | Sun, Jan 17 2021 7:25 PM CST

Zack Snyder himself has confirmed that his own Zack Snyder's Justice League will be an epic 4-hour movie, and not a 4-episode miniseries airing on HBO Max.

Vero user @bethebeast asked Snyder if Zack Snyder's Justice League would be a "series or a one shot watch of a movie" to which Snyder simply replied "one shot". The movie was originally teased as a 4-part series for HBO Max with a runtime of 4 hours -- but now Snyder has confirmed it'll be one continuous epic saga that goes for 4 hours instead.

There's no release date for Zack Snyder's Justice League other than rumors of March 2021, which isn't far away -- but there's also rumors of a cinema release and even IMAX release of Zack Snyder's Justice League for later this year.
