SALES /PLAYER COUNT & DEALS

Death's Door reaches over 100,000 players in its first week
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/deaths-door-reaches-over-100000-players-in-its-first-week/
Zeldalike Death's Door has reached over 100,000 players in its first week, according to developer Acid Nerve. It's an impressive feat for the tiny corvid action-adventure, as most indie games don't attract that sort of playerbase at launch, and a game's first month is usually its best—let alone its first week.

Suddenly popular Portal-inspired FPS Splitgate was scheduled to launch into 1.0 on July 27 after a couple of years spent in Early Access, but that's been delayed until August.

This lo-fi horror roguelike looks like the best Resident Evil spin-off Capcom never made
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/this-lo-fi-horror-roguelike-looks-like-the-best-resident-evil-spin-off-capcoms-never-made/
Draft of Darkness is a game I did not know existed this morning, and now it is a game I must play. It's one of those where to explain it you need to smoosh a lot of concepts together: it's a lo-fi, top-down horror roguelike, where combat happens via card battles and the game's overarching loop is about deckbuilding for each run. It's also one of those where, if you take a look at the trailer, you get the appeal instantly: and it's out in a few days.

Your new favourite indie in five words: Fully destructible sword-wielding robots
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/your-new-favourite-indie-in-five-words-fully-destructible-sword-wielding-robots/
Clone Drone in the Danger Zone—try saying that ten times fast—launches today for PC and consoles after four years in Steam Early Access. Clone Drone's (sorry, I can't say it ten times fast, I'll make a mistake eventually) hook is that it's a third-person robot sword fighter where any part of any body can be sliced off.

Intel's Process Roadmap to 2025: with 4nm, 3nm, 20A and 18A?!

https://www.anandtech.com/show/16823/intel-accelerated-offensive-process-roadmap-updates-to-10nm-7nm-4nm-3nm-20a-18a-packaging-foundry-emib-foveros

So going forward, Intel is rebranding it's nodes. So when Intel says "7nm," it's actually the same node as their "10nm." One thing I will say is that the density on Intel's rebranded 7nm is still higher than TSMC's 7nm so I can see why. But the naming will get a bit confusing.

One thing I will say is that, while it's a neat and interesting concept, I feel like without being able to upgrade your motherboard (which upgrades the CPU/GPU) the draw falls apart for me. Cause sure, you can change up the IO but most laptops including thin and light ones comes with all the IO you need so you don't have to change them. Sure you can change speakers and such but the likely hood of those failing is very low. And most laptops do allow you to upgrade the Ram and storage including thin and light ones. The battery is the only mixed bag as some have glue and others don't.

So for me, the idea of an upgradable laptop where you can't seem to upgrade the motherboard falls flat. Cause that's the one component that people actually want to upgrade 3-4 years down the line as stronger CPU/GPU come out. So while I like the idea, I'll wait and see if they ever announce upgradable motherboards.
