Watch This Absurd And Gruesome Madden 19 Glitch

With Madden NFL 19 out now and the real NFL season starting soon, it’s finally Madden Season–that also means it’s Madden Glitch Season. As is the case pretty much every year, videos have emerged of various glitches with the latest Madden game.

In a punt situation, the longsnapper for the San Francisco 49ers refuses to snap the ball, and the New...

Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chipset for Windows 10 devices may still have disappointing performance

Benchmarks have apparently leaked showing that the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 850 chipset, which was announced at Computex 2018 earlier this year, will indeed offer a performance upgrade, but not a huge one. The current crop of Snapdragon 835-powered Windows 10 on ARM laptops, such as the HP Envy x2, received lukewarm reviews, mainly due to their underpowered performance. These devices are supposed to bridge the gap between smartphones and laptops, offering huge battery lives and always-on mobile internet connections. However, when running...

Cloud game streaming could decide the future of Xbox Scarlett and PlayStation 5

The game industry is about to go through some pretty major changes, all centered around a new technology: game streaming. While traditional gaming meant owning a relatively high-powered console and buying physical discs for each game, the near future could bring libraries of unimaginable sizes that can be beamed straight to your PC or console – all for around the same price as a Netflix subscription. While this might seem like a concept that’s far from reality, it’s actually not. In fact, there are a few of these services already...
