Final Fantasy 7 Remake grabbed the best game of E3 2019 Award by Game Critics Awards

After the nominees were announced earlier this week, we now have the winners of the Game Critics Awards for the Best of E3 2019. The big award this year went to a title that’s currently console-exclusive – bad times if you don’t have a PlayStation 4 – but there’s plenty of stuff to be excited about on PC.

Final Fantasy VII Remake beat Borderlands 3, Doom Eternal, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, The Outer Worlds, and Watch Dogs Legion to be named the best overall game on show at E3. (Still no reference to a PC release date, sorry.) PS4 garnered the most platform wins at 12, though PC titles earned the most nominations.

The best PC game of E3 2019 is, officially, Doom Eternal. id’s new demon-slaying simulator lost to Final Fantasy VII Remake in the overall category, but it beat out Borderlands 3, Control, The Outer Worlds, and Wolfenstein: Youngblood to be named the best computer game on the show this year. (Yes, Doom Eternal is also coming to consoles, but come on – you’re going to want to play this one on mouse and keyboard.)

Doom Eternal was also named the best action game at the show. The Outer Worlds is named the best original game, Watch Dogs Legion is the best action/adventure, and the delightful murder-thinker John Wick Hex is the best strategy game.

Cyberpunk 2077 was awarded a special commendation for graphics, but it was not eligible for any other awards since the press was not allowed hands-on time. That also means major titles like Dying Light 2 and the Avengers were not eligible for awards.

You can read the full list of winners at the official site.  The Best of E3 2018 award went out to Resident Evil 2, so hopefully, the final products turn out just as well for this year’s picks.

Trainwreck gifts twitch subscribers

Famous for his Twitch Gambling Streams and Massive Viewership, the known streamer Trainwreck has recently revealed the number of Twitch Subscribers he gifted in 2022. Not just on Twitch, he is also quite famous on the Amazon streaming platform, which he has used for money-making via donations, subscriptions, etc., for quite a time.

In his Livestream on December 14, the streamer revealed that he had gifted over 24,346 subscribers to various channels on Amazon. Subscriptions are one of the primary ways to assess the popularity of any Twitch streamer, as viewers on the platform can give it to their favorite streamer along with other rewards. But Trainwreck took this subscription donation to a whole new level this year with this massive amount.

By giving off these subscriptions to multiple smaller channels, Trainwreck has helped them to grow significantly. Despite this, the top five subscription leaders on Twitch are Casimoto, Asmongold, HasanAbi, Kai Cenat and xQc.

Trainwreck further added to it that this number doesn’t include the Twitch bits, StreamElements and StreamLab donations, which would further increase the count significantly. He has also revealed that apart from the online subscription donations on Amazon and Twitch, he also makes a lot of donations and giftings offline. 

On Twitch, a base subscription costs around $4.99. So, according to the number of subscriptions donated by Trainwreck, he has till now gifted the value of around $121,486.54 to various channels in 2022, assuming that each subscription is of Tier 1.

A majority of donations and subscriptions by Trainwreck are dedicated to small streamers and creators, which he wants to divert toward his other live-streaming platform, Kick. Along with that, he has also launched a mental health fund for donations to help and support other creators.

After gaining a lot of popularity for his gambling stream sessions, Twitch banned his such streaming sessions, which otherwise can be accessed on his platform Kick, his social media profile and occasional conversational streams on Twitch.

Even though many small Twitch streamers support Trainwreck and his live-streaming platform Kick, many popular live streamers criticized his platform publicly for taking 5% of subscription money. 

After facing a lot of backlash from such streamers to move to his own platform, Trainwreck announced the donation of $10,000 to 50 people under its holiday gateway, which started on December 12. According to Youtube Star Ludwig Ahgren, Trainwreck is one of the most generous Twitch Streamers online, and these gifted subscriptions are just proof of it.

The series announcement on Amazon Prime came after the public release of its sequel God of War: Ragnarok, last month.

Skyrim new mod

A new mod version (unofficial) of The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim has been released today to make the game available for NVIDIA DLSS, FSR (AMD) and XeSS (Intel). This latest release supports the upscaled resolution technology to let players enjoy the popular Bethesda RPG at higher settings.

The popular modder PureDark released the latest version, the same mod that has been working on The Resident 2 Remake Mod. While this version supports VR, the modders are working on a VR-specific version to optimize the graphics quality for an enhanced gaming experience. The modder has released this mod version specifically for the Anniversary/Special Editions of Skyrim.

The upscaling technology used in this mod works by redrawing the pixels on a screen to make graphics comparable to the high-resolution ones without actually being highly pixelated. This way, the game requires less space and resources on gamers’ hardware, so more people can play it.

To try this mod version, players require an NVIDIA RTX graphics card supporting DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) technology that boosts the gaming experience without requiring better hardware. It is available for the latest graphics cards of NVIDIA, like DLSS 2.0 or 3.0. While for AMD and Intex, it works with any GPU. Also, some plugins like SKSE would be required to try the add-ons by PureDark.

Modding is currently the most popular way to keep Skyrim alive and popular amongst gamers. There are plenty of elements and ways to experiment with to enhance the gaming experience for this popular title. From graphical tweaks to fixing bugs, creating new missions, NPCs and even minute details allowing modders to release unique versions of this game. It is because of the modders’ community that the 2011 RPG was in the limelight this year.

There are a variety of mods that players can check for the special edition. For instance, Wyrmstooth is an expansion-sized mod that keeps adding new quests and dungeons. Players can also check the Skyrim Together Reborn mod. Right now, Skyrim fans are experimenting with different mods to explore new ways to enjoy this title, and the craze is not going to end anytime soon.

Currently, Skyrim doesn’t feature any mod for ray tracing. However, some new software has been released by NVIDIA that can make mod ray tracing easier for older games. Currently, the Lux-Via mod is the only possibly closest mod for Skyrim ray tracing.
