The Mega Man event for Monster Hunter World is live and I’ve farmed up the cute little armor set for my Palico. I grabbed the weapon too, but I much prefer the little flower paralysis weapon. The armor look is awesome though, so Julia will be sporting this for a while now. — more

Given that Nvidia’s Volta line of gaming video cards is set to use this type of memory, we can assume that their launch will be somewhat in line with this. — more
