Marvel Snap’s New Vormir Map Seems To Be Slowing The Game Down

The latest map in Marvel Snap, Vormir, appears to be slowing down the game, at least according to recent reports about the matter. “The fact that Vormir’s visual effect turns off even if your opponent plays a card is terrible,” someone for example said on Reddit. Another player responded, explaining how “it is a little weird. It’s never quite made me accidentally sacrifice someone, but it has given me some pause.” The issue even concerns actual frame rates. “The location where all the cards fight is also very laggy for me,” one more user on Reddit complained.

1990s Duke Nukem Forever Files Leak Online

The files for Duke Nukem Forever have apparently been leaked, attracting no small amount of attention within certain communities. “Christmas has another gift… a leak of another Apogee game project from the 1990s, the Duke Nukem Forever platformer,” the industry watcher Scott Miller said on Twitter. The game was of course famously canceled.


Valve Reveals Steam Replay 2022

Valve has now joined Sony and Nintendo in offering players a yearly wrap up, Steam Replay 2022. The idea is basically that you can log into the platform and see some statistics about what you’ve played of the course of this past year. The reception has mostly been positive, but some people have pointed out a couple of points for improvement. “Shame there’s no overall playtime breakdown in hours,” a user on Reddit for example remarked.


Leakers Reveal Original 1995 Prey Game Prototype

The prototype for the original Prey from 1995 has apparently turned up, something which is rather interesting all by itself, but given the popularity of this particular game, the leak has been raising quite a few eyebrows. “This is an early prototype of the game Prey by 3D Realms from November of 1995,” the leaker explains about the release, diving into the technical details. “You can either pass a map name as the argument when launching it like ‘prey demo4’ or once launched via ‘prey,’ press Tab to open the console and then type ‘load demo4.’ You’ll also notice several demos are available which can be played by using the ‘play demoname’ command.”
