The occult mechanics of Bloodborne, Cultist Simulator and Pyre •

All games are occult. We as players are not privy to the inner workings that define the rules by which we play. Unlike in a tabletop RPG, we’re not even aware of the dungeon master’s screen that hides the game’s secrets and mechanics from us.

And only an elect handful does so…

Stardew Valley’s multiplayer update has a release date

Developer ConcernedApe (that’s an awesome name for a dev, by the way) has confirmed that the multiplayer update for Stardew Valley will drop on August 1.

The feature has been a long time coming and has been doing the rounds in beta form for months now, although it won’t arrive on PlayStation 4, Switch, and Xbox One versions until a later date.

Oh, and PlayStation Vita won’t receive the update at all, which is a bit of a shame since it only came out a few months ago on Sony’s…

This is the closest I’ll get to this amazing Castlevania: SOTN print ⊟

As reported by Mashable, Mondo is also bringing a cool red/blue variant of a vinyl Rondo of Blood soundtrack, which will at least be available outside of SDCC in a different color scheme.

By the way, I just wrapped up a replay of Symphony of the…

With no new Nvidia GPUs and zero mining demand Gigabyte’s card sales are down $6m

Gigabyte GTX 1080 G1

Gigabyte has just published its June revenue figures, giving us our first look at Q2 earnings for the Taiwanese company compared to its bumper Q1… and it doesn’t make for pretty reading. With the slump in graphics card sales, due to slackening mining demand, and gamers weary of high prices and an impending new generation of Nvidia GPUs, it looks like Gigabyte’s GPU division is tracking some $6 million down on Q1.

That’s only an estimate, based…
