    There’s a long-standing, good-natured feud between the different gaming factions on the internet. The console people bicker over who has the best exclusives, but all of them can unite against the PC gamers. A new project from custom PC builder Origin could bring everyone together in awe — the Big O has all three current-gen consoles and a gaming PC in a single box. You can’t buy it, but it really is a thing to behold.

    The first step was figuring out if all the components would even fit. There is an almost endless assortment of custom PC components, but the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro are immutable — if they don’t fit in the case, the project isn’t happening. Origin liberated the Xbox and Playstation from their original cases, and lovingly integrated the guts in its custom full-tower Genesis chassis. To keep the consoles cool in the confined space, Origin turned to a hard-line liquid cooling setup from Cryogenic. The only major drawback to putting the consoles inside the case like this is that the optical drives had to go. That means the PS4 and Xbox are digital-only. That’s the way things are going anyway.

    Classic Doom Games

    There are precious few first-person shooter franchises as iconic or beloved as Doom. With the series enjoying a resurgence of late, gamers are increasingly interested in going back to replay the classic games that got it all started. They can do that now on current-generation game consoles. However, these decades-old games include some very modern frustrations.

    The Doom games follow the exploits of the unnamed “Doomguy” as he does battle with the forces of Hell in the distant future. Doom’s unrelenting action and creepy visuals made it a massive success. Along with Wolfenstein 3D, Doom helped define first-person shooters with features like 3D graphics, multiplayer, and more.

    Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo



    Loot boxes have been controversial since they were introduced. That controversy was turbo-charged back in 2017, when EA and DICE decided to make the entire economy of Star Wars Battlegrounds II entirely dependent on randomized loot box drops and insanely long grinds. That particular shameful cash grab may have exploded in the company’s face like the Death Star over Endor, but it kicked off an investigation into how loot boxes work across the globe. The FTC held a workshop on gaming loot boxes on Wednesday, August 7, to discuss issues surrounding this method of dispensing in-game loot. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo announced a new initiative at said workshop — one that will require all games published on their platforms to disclose the chance of receiving rewards.

    Publishers have similarly rallied to state they’ll support the initiative, including Activision Blizzard, Bandai Namco, Bethesda, Bungie, EA, Take-Two Interactive, Ubisoft, Warner Bros., and Wizards of the Coast. All of these announcements and statements, however, apply to consoles — not PCs. Valve updated DOTA 2 to show loot box disclosure data last year, but it hasn’t made disclosing this information mandatory for games on its platform. Neither have smaller game stores like Epic or GoG, at least not yet.

    Last week, Mojang announced that the Minecraft Super Duper Graphics Pack (SDGP) that Microsoft had promised back in 2017 was canceled, permanently. No additional information was offered on why the update was canceled, or what the team had been working on for the past two years before canceling it. As of today, Nvidia has announced that it will be developing an exclusive ray tracing pack for Minecraft for Nvidia GPU owners.

    Mojang’s announcement states: “It’ll be playable on Windows 10 with devices that are capable of DirectX R, such as with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPU (and we plan to expand it to future platforms that support DirectX R raytracing).”
