What initially started as a visual mod that aimed to give GTA V's already impressive Los Santos a cutting edge sheen, has also added things like new weapon load-outs for police, new physics, and even rejigged car handling and destruction. Called GTA V Redux the impressive mod is also the work of one man, Josh Romito. And it looks incredible.
The Battlefield website now lists the PC system requirements for Battlefield 1, letting you know what sort of horse power you'll need to effectively horse around. On horseback! And they're not too shabby, with the latest version of DICE's Frostbite engine being touted as the most optimised yet.
Thanks to the release of Warcraft (2016) on DVD and Blu-ray we’re taking a look back at the lore of Warcraft the movie, its relationship to the latest World of Warcraft expansion, Legion, and over 20 years of awe-inspiring gaming history. Of which there's a lot! Like, over twenty years worth. Starting with Blizzard's first game in the franchise, Warcraft: Orcs & Humans, debuting all the way back in 1994.
Now that the dust has settled after last weeks PlayStation 4 Pro announcement, that being the substantially more powerful PlayStation 4 console due for release in November. We now know that the majority of the titles that will take advantage of the console will not actually run natively in 4K. But instead be upscaled from an almost-there resolution using a speacialised technique. In a new interview with Digital Spy, Sony's Andrew House has responded to claims that using the 4K moniker is a little misleading.
A team based shooter with a dude in shiny armor that can generate a big blue energy shield. If you're thinking Overwatch, then its no wonder Paladins is already looking very familiar. From SMITE developer Hi-Rez Studios, there's probably some key differences between its take on the whole team-based shooter deal and Blizzard's Overwatch. But then again there's a character that looks almost identical to Reaper too.
If you've been living with being called xXxDoomGiantl337 since creating your Battle.net account over a decade ago, Blizzard are now offering you the chance to switch things up. Name wise. With a one-time BattleTag change for $13.45 AUD. But being a one-time deal, probably best to put a bit more thought into it this time around. Or be prepared to drop another 13 bucks. But then again, anything would be better than being known as CosbyFan1138.
You may not have heard of them but Digital Homicide recently had 18 poorly received games on Steam. And we say recently because Valve has since removed the developer's titles after a lawsuit was filed seeking $18,000,000 from 100 Steam users by Digital Homicide. Claiming "personal injury" from negative reviews and comments on its titles ranging from the usual "shovelware" critique to claims that the developer stole assets. A particular sticking point, as that's led Digital Homicide to also sue popular YouTuber Jim Sterling for $15,000,000.
And deep down we kind of wish that this was part of the game when it launched last year. X-Wing versus Tie Fighter battles in orbit around Star Destroyers. Flying down an incredibly detailed Death Star trench. Boarding the giant battle station to take down its defenses. The goals are not only clear, but they just about sum up the perfect vehicle and on-foot Star Wars experience.
Debuting over the weekend at Tokyo Game Show comes our first look at gameplay from the upcoming Metal Gear: Survive from Konami. A weird proposition to be sure, as this is the first non-Kojima led Metal Gear game from the publisher since his much publicised departure. And the fact that it takes place in alternate dimension filled with creatures. Zombies if you will.
For the SimTower lovers out there comes a modern retelling of that age-old tale. The one where an all-seeing dude sits atop a cloud, or a nearby sidewalk, and uses their x-ray vision to observe, command, and build their very own skyscraper. It's probably safe to say that Project Highrise is the spiritual successor to SimTower, it offers up a similarly calming and enduring gameplay loop that can only come from this type of sim.
