Palit GeForce RTX 2060 Super Gaming Pro review

Available pre-top graphics with “ultras” in all modern games
We recently tested the top-end Palit GeForce RTX 2080 Ti video card. It proved to be great in games, although the high price can scare off many potential buyers.

Power Rangers: why did we watch this stuff?

Let’s evaluate the main show of children of the nineties from the heights of 2020
Why did we even mention the Rangers? Recently released Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid-a fighting game based on the cult TV show, the first seasons of which were enthusiastically watched by all Russian children born in the nineties.

What Red Dead Redemption 2 is lying about. Cowboys in games, movies, and reality

The whole truth about the not-so-Wild West
Endless prairies, a faithful “Colt” on the belt and a hardy stallion, carrying a silent and slightly hungover hero straight into the sunset: it is difficult to find a more romanticized character than a cowboy. Coming out today, Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC is literally woven from such passages. Let’s try to figure out how plausible the image of a brave cowboy, firmly entrenched in our heads thanks to countless films and games about the Wild West.

What there is to do in the life of a real man? It seems that there are only three things: arrange a shootout in a bar, Rob a train and become the fastest shooter in the West, winning a fair duel in the hot midday sun. Continue reading

How game developers communicate with fans in social networks

Trolling against officialdom: laughing with funny tweets and facepalm with bad ones
The bread and butter of any project is its audience. And the most important means of communication with the audience these days is social networks. For one funny tweet, the developer can be forgiven a lot, and total ignoring of community requests will not lead to anything good. The rule seems to be simple, but not everyone understands it. We offer you to look at specific examples!
