• Thirty Seconds Of Elden Ring Gameplay Appears To Have Leaked Online

    What appears to be new Elden Ring gameplay footage is currently making the rounds on social media, seemingly offering a glimpse of how the game will run outside of official trailers.

    The thirty-second clip is set on a rocky hilltop near a broken castle, with a spectral tree rising in the distance. After rotating the camera to offer a clearer look at the environment, we're treated to the character jumping up to the hill crest, causing a pair of eagles to light into the air in a flurry of feathers.

    The footage was allegedly captured on an Xbox One, though its origin remains unconfirmed. Assuming it's legitimate, the new footage gives us a better feel for Elden Ring's movement, particularly in terms of how the main character handles jumping.

    Otherwise we still know comparatively little about Elden Ring, though we're just a few months from its release date. In an interview with IGN, director Hidetaka Miyazaki described the open world and the gameplay, but little else has been shown in terms of official footage.

    Regardless, Elden Ring remains highly anticipated, not the least because Dark Souls and Bloodborne are some of the finest action games ever made. With Elden Ring Ring due early next year, hopefully we'll get to see more of this open world Soulsborne game very soon.

    Elden Ring is currently set to release January 21, 2022 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. You can find our impressions of Elden Ring's first 15 minutes of gameplay right here.

    DMZ: New Images and Details Revealed for HBO Max’s DC Comics Adaptation – DC FanDome 2021

    The HBO Max adaptation of the DC Comics series DMZ received a ton of new details and images at DC FanDome 2021.

    DMZ is a four-part limited series that is being led by Selma and When They See Us' Ava DuVernay and Westworld writer Roberto Patino. The Mandalorian's Rosario Dawson is set to star as Alma and DMZ will tell the story of a USA that is in the middle of its second civil war. This war is between the Free States of America and the United States of America and the rule of law is "dictated by the most powerful person at any point at time."

    "It's a story about a fractured people that are coming together," Patino said. "We have a civil war between the Free States of America and the United States of America, and our story takes place eight years into that DMZ where the rule of law is basically dictated by the most powerful person at any point in time, and that can change from block to block."

    Dawson's Alma, who is an outsider that will turn "everything upside down," is inspired by Z from the graphic novel.

    "Alma was inspired by one of the most fascinating characters in the comic book and also one of the most underserved in the comic book named Z, who is this fearless medic," Patino explained. "I really took the creative guard rails off and dove into the spirit of Z and reinvented her. This show is a bit of an origin story for one of the best characters in the graphic novel."

    Alma will be joined by Benjamin Bratt's Parco Delgado and Hoon Lee's Wilson, both of whom have different styles of leadership. Delgado is a character who takes power who believes that no one can challenge him on that if he says it "with enough resolve."

    Wilson, on the other hand, wants everyone to make "truly free choices in the DMZ," and loves the "patchwork of gangs and tribes and outfits" that come of that.

    DMZ is set in Manhattan and is meant to be a piece of media we can see our potential future in if we "let the worst of our divisions get to us."

    "That's what DMZ is," DuVernay said. "It is set in a world that's just a few moments into the future, and it speculates what would we be if we let the worst of our divisions get to us. I just think it's super cool. It's also important in ways that allow us to consider ourselves now and what we want to be going forward."

    Daily Deals: Save on AMD Ryzen CPUs, 4K HDTVs & Batman: TAS

    Do you want to save money on a 4K TV? Building a new PC and want to get yourself a Ryzen CPU? Then today is your lucky day, as we've got exactly that in store for you and more! Amazon is running a ton of deals on both 4K TVs and a bunch of TV shows to watch on them. Newegg has Ryzen CPUs discounted, and there's of course a ton of great games and gaming PCs up for offer as well.

    Daily Deals for October 16th, 2021

    Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3060 PC for $1299 (Upgrade to the RTX 3070 for $1599.99)

    Select "RTX 3070" upgrade during the customization step

    This is the best price right now for an Alienware RTX 30 series equipped gaming PC. The RTX 3060 is no slouch; its performance is superior to the RTX 2060 SUPER and almost matches the RTX 2070 SUPER in some games. It will easily handle all of your games at up to 1440p, and even 4K if your game isn't too demanding. It's paired with the latest 11th generation Intel Core i7 processor and 16GB of RAM. There's only a 256GB SSD installed, but it's a very simple task to add in your own second SSD or hard drive, and you won't void your warranty.

    There's an option to upgrade to the RTX 3070 for an additional $300. The RTX 3070 is a substantial step up from the RTX 3060. It's a bit more powerful that even the previous generation's champ, the RTX 2080 SUPER.

    Alienware Aurora R12 RTX 3080 PC for $2199.99

    Do you need a rig that can run Battlefield 2042 in 4K? If you've been on the lookout for the extremely elusive RTX 3080 video card for your (up to 4K) gaming needs, then check out this ready-to-go prebuilt Alienware Aurora gaming PC from Dell. This PC comes equipped with an 11th gen Intel Core i7 processor, 16GB of memory, 512GB SSD, and a separate 1TB hard drive for storage. The RTX 3080 is way more powerful than the previous generation's best video card, the RTX 2080 Ti, and is the best recommended video card for 4K gaming. The RTX 3080 is the card I'm currently using for the BF2042 open beta, and I can run the game at 4K resolution and over 60fps consistently at medium to high settings.

    HP OMEN RTX 3080 Gaming PC for $1795.49

    Select "RTX 3080" and "800W Power Supply" as upgrades

    Here's another RTX 3080 config that's worth a look. Although its overall specs aren't as good as the Alienware config listed above, you simply won't find an RTX 3080 equipped pre-built PC for a cheaper price. In fact, the RTX 3080 by itself probably goes for a similar price on eBay. It's paired with the latest AMD Ryzen 5 5600X processor (which can be upgraded). The 8GB of RAM and 256GB SSD is lean, but you can easily pick out and swap in your own components.

    Razer Blade 15" RTX 2070 SUPER Gaming Laptop

    If you want the best looking gaming laptop on the market, then look no further. Razer has discounted its Razer Blade advanced model with RTX 2070 SUPER. It's an excellentlaptop for the price, featuring an anodized CNC unibody aluminum frame, a gorgeous 15" 300Hz 100% sRGB factory calibrated display, per-key RGB keyboard lighting, an Intel Core i7 8-core processor, and a generous helping of RAM and SSD storage.
