Skywind, the Skyrim-Morrowind total conversion mod, is almost as old the game it's being built with. The first screenshots of the ambitious project appeared all the way back in 2012, and judging by the latest trailer, the project has made some leaps since then. Give it a watch above.

Cyberpath has announced Cyberprank 2069; a new prank/clone game of CD Projekt RED’s highly anticipated RPG, Cyberpunk 2077. Now I’m saying it is a prank game because a) its name suggests that and b) its first screenshots showcase just an empty environment and nothing more.

Developers tell people to pirate their games instead of using G2A
https://www.pcgamer.com/developers-tell-people-to-pirate-their-games-instead-of-using-g2a/
G2A, the grey market purveyor of game keys, has once again drawn the ire of game developers less than keen for their games to feature on G2A's digital shelves. It's previously clashed with TinyBuild and Gearbox, and a recent ad push has seen it condemned by more developers, with some even saying they'd rather players torrent than buy from G2A.

Hearthstone's next expansion is Saviors of Uldum, out August 6
https://www.pcgamer.com/hearthstones-next-expansion-is-saviors-of-uldum-out-6-august/
Last week Blizzard's teaser for the next Heartstone expansion heavily hinted that it will be themed around the League of Explorers and, whaddya know, it is! Saviors of Uldum will be about teaming up with the League of Explorers in their fight against the League of E.V.I.L. as part of this year's multi-part pulpy adventure. The new expansion is the second chapter of the story that's playing out across 2019 in Hearthstone, and follows on directly from the Rise of the Shadows set, and the solo adventure that accompanied it, The Dalaran Heist.

How the Apex Legends ranked mode works
https://www.pcgamer.com/apex-legends-ranked-leagues/
Apex Legends Season 2 is almost upon us, and prior to the big patch tomorrow, Respawn has explained how its new Ranked Leagues will work in a Reddit post.
If you want to begin the long journey toward the top rank, you'll have to start at Bronze IV, work your way to Bronze I, and then do the same through the Silver, Gold, Platinum, and Diamond ranks. The final rank, Apex Predator, is the only one not divided into four tiers.

We already know a lot about Cyberpunk 2077 ahead of its release date in 2020. We'll be choosing who to kill (or not kill), who to smooch (or not), and now we know we'll be choosing some details about V's childhood and backstory as well, and those choices will determine which location you start playing in.

Green Hell, the survival sim set in the Amazon, leaves Early Access soon
https://www.pcgamer.com/green-hell-the-survival-sim-set-in-the-amazon-leaves-early-access-soon/
Green Hell, the intense survival simulator set in the Amazon jungle, will launch out of Early Access on September 5. The game's been in Early Access for nearly a year, and currently boasts a 'Very Positive' rating on Steam. Chris played it in October, and became so enraged that he punched an armadillo (in the game, not in real life). Becoming enraged is, of course, par for the course in survival games, so it bodes well.

Steel Circus is a free-to-play future sport coming to Early Access in August
https://www.pcgamer.com/steel-circus-is-a-free-to-play-future-sport-coming-to-early-access-in-august/
I only care about future sports—give me neon and robots and a reckless disregard for health and safety regulations. Steel Circus appears to have all of that. It's a sci-fi sport that tosses two teams of three into an arena to duke it out and score some goals all in an effort to maintain peace throughout the solar system. Noble! It's coming to Steam Early Access next month, but first you can watch the launch cinematic above.

Poop on everything in Pigeon Simulator
https://www.pcgamer.com/poop-on-everything-in-pigeon-simulator/
After revealing the secrets of goats and bread, the physics wizards at Bossa Studios are now shining the spotlight on the true master of Earth's cities: the mighty pigeon. Like Goat Simulator, Pigeon Simulator looks like another sandbox where mayhem is the goal, and as you can see in the announcement trailer above, pigeons are pretty skilled at sowing chaos.
>> Will the poo look white on black cars and black on white cars like in real life?

Certainly takes the wind out of Navi, interestingly we didn't see 16Gbps GDDR6 on any of the new GPU's either which was heavily rumoured.

Knowing nVidia, these Super versions were probably what they could've launched in the first place as 20xx, they just decided to keep them for this very situation and milk the market in the meantime with original, cheaper to produce versions.

With the launch of the new SUPER series from Nvidia, HEXUS is giving away one of them:

Just checked out the SUPER cards. looks like a solid offering. But seeing how the 2080ti is still so far beyond everything else it's hard to believe that we'll see a super version anytime soon. I really want to splurge on a 2080ti but it seems so much of a waste considering how amazing the 3080ti will be. 7nm and hopefully a shit ton more RT and Tensor cores are gonna show us what's really possible. Buying a 2080ti feels like buying an alpha prototype of a real card.

The RTX 2080 Super will launch in a few days, in July 23. And given how the new Super cards perform, it wouldn't surprise me if the 2080 Super ends up virtually tied with the 2080Ti.

Maybe that's the card you should get while you wait for the 3080Ti.

This mod brings the Ludwig’s Holy & Holy Moonlight swords from Bloodborne to Dark Souls 3
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/this-mod-brings-the-ludwigs-holy-holy-moonlight-sword-from-bloodborne-to-dark-souls-3/
Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborne fans, here is something for you today. While FromSoftware has not announced a PC version of Bloodborne yet (and we don’t expect that to happen soon, if at all), modder ‘MaxTheMiracle’ released a new mod that brings Ludwig’s Holy and Holy Moonlight swords from Bloodborne to Dark Souls 3.
Going into more details, this mod brings Ludwig’s Holy Blade (it replaces Lothric Holy Sword), Ludwig’s Holy GreatSword (it replaces Wolnir’s Holy Sword), Holy Moonlight Sword (it replaces the Hollowslayer Greatsword) and Holy Moonlight Great Sword (it replaces the Moonlight Greatsword).
Furthermore, the mod replaces the good old grass crest shield from Dark Souls 3 with the Loch Shield from Bloodborne.

First nude mods released for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/first-nude-mods-released-for-bloodstained-ritual-of-the-night/
Well, we all saw that coming. Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is the latest platformer that is heavily inspired by the Castlevania series and in this game, players assume the role of a sexy female character. And, as you’d expect, the first nude mods for this game have surfaced online.
The mod that most gamers will be interested in is created by modder ‘noodtiddies’ and is called Topless Miriam. Now despite its title, the latest version of this mod allows players to get Miriam completely naked. Not only that, but the modder is looking into getting breast physics working (though it’s not guaranteed whether such thing will be possible).
The other nude mod for Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is created by modder ‘noodtiddies’ and is called Sexy Monsters. The goal of this mod is to eventually make every female monster’s tiddies visible & anatomically accurate, including Vepar. The latest version of this mod has nude versions of Bloodless, Rul’sha and Vepar.
>> No links are provided, as it's always the case with this kind of mods, but you'll be able to find them at Nexus Mods.

Doom Reborn, standalone remake of Doom 1 and 2 in Doom 3 Engine, now available for download
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/doom-reborn-standalone-remake-of-doom-1-and-2-in-doom-3-engine-now-available-for-download/
Modder ‘gamehacker’ has created a standalone version of Doom Reborn and released its pre-beta version 1.61. Doom Reborn is a total conversion of the original Doom Series, and the goal is to remake the original Doom and Doom 2 games in the idTech4 engine with new textures and new models for the original weapons and monsters, as well as with recreated and re-textured maps from these classic first-person shooters.
As the modder noted, Doom Reborn pre-beta version 1.61 features an unfinished version of Map10 of Doom 2 that players can try to finish off. Moreover, the mod includes Dafama2k7’s Pre-Beta Version 1.6 mod and gamehacker has done some tweaks and changes to improve lighting and colours in various areas. It’s also worth noting that Parallax Occlusion Mapping is enabled by default.
