The PC release of GTA V has already been hailed as the best iteration of the game, but there were still signs of its original status as a last-generation title, with some relatively simple scene geometry. Mods like GTA V Redux should more than address that problem, with vastly improved image quality and full 4K support. We haven’t even listed the various improvements to the underlying game, so check the mod page and watch the video if you want more information.
Video game streaming site Twitch has grown to extraordinary size and influence over the gaming world. But its stars still sometimes struggle to make a living.

It was one of the biggest earthquakes in New Zealand for years – killing two people, damaging hundreds of homes and causing a tsunami up to five metres high.

The Kolibri pistol was a self-defense pistol designed by Austrian Franz Pfannl in 1918. Inspired by the hummingbird, the Kolibri fires a laughable 2 mm caliber bullet. In Battlefield 1, the Kolibri deals just 4 damage, 25 accuracy, 67 hip fire, 450 rate of fire and 8/192 ammo. That said, the Kolibri is rated at 100 control. DICE probably intended for the Kolibri pistol to be a joke, but it’s hard not to appreciate the Kolibri’s novelty. Besides, what better way to humiliate your enemies than to kill them with a miniature gun?
I’ve always been amazed how far we’ve come in games, and how graphically impressive they are to almost life like situations instead of how they looked all those years ago. One such video which was shown in 2015, gave us a look into the evolution of Formula 1 racing games, from 1976 all the way up to 2015. Impressive indeed.
