GD Machine 2014 Benchmark Far Cry 4 GTX 750 Ti i5 4670K

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 November 2014 at 17:12

Roll up, roll up! It's the next in the seemingly never-ending line-up of Ubisoft releases hitting over this three-week period. Far Cry 4's out and it's caused quite a stir, crash-landing amid the PC gaming community before razing everything in sight down with a handily placed flamethrower.

It's safe to say Far Cry fans are loving it, and what's not to love about riding an elephant armed with an RPG? You that is, not the elephant, they probably haven't got the dexterity for it, even if some of them do paint. We put Far Cry 4 through its paces already on the GeForce GTX 670, but now it's the turn of the GD Machine 2014. Locked and loaded with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, 8GB RAM and an Intel i5-4670K, it's primed and ready to (hopefully) give Far Cry 4 a roasting in some benchmarks.  [More]

Hacker Group Claims To Have Raided Millions Of PSN, Origin, 2K And Windows Live Logins

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 November 2014 at 15:15

A hacker collective going by the name DerpTrolling, who were also responsible for the World of Warcraft DDOS attacks on Blizzard MMORPG over the weekend, has claimed that it has allegedly stolen the login details for millions of accounts across gaming networks such as Origin, PlayStation Network, 2K Games and Windows Live.

If true then the login and password credentials have been hijacked from millions upon millions of individuals, with the hacking group claiming that it's acting in the interest of consumers in an effort to highlight the need for companies to increase security in order to protect such crucial information. It then proceeded to put up a sample of thousands of usernames and passwords via Pastebin, which doesn’t seem to be benefitting any of the thousands of consumers on that list too much. [More]

Valve Gets Heavy With Developers And Tightens Steam Early Access Rules

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 November 2014 at 12:45

It’s no secret by now that the Early Access system on Steam is a bit of mess. For every bona fide hit creeping its way through there seems to be dozens more seemingly never going to see a final release - I’m looking at you Stomping Land.

Valve’s now taking some some additional action to begin regulating Steam Early Access, laying out a bunch of new guidelines and rules for developers who want to get onto its platform and begin using the service. Some gamers have understandably been stung by some of the offers on Early Access, and this latest update from Valve suggest it knows this is a problem and is tackling it with more clearly defined guidelines.

Game of Thrones will play out from the perspective of five members of the House Forrester, who find themselves in a bit of a fix when the War of the Five Kings begins to envelop their domain. [More]

GD Machine 2014 Benchmark Assassins Creed Unity GTX 750 Ti i5 4670K

Written by Jon Sutton on 20 November 2014 at 17:00

Amid all the controversy that surrounded Assassin's Creed Unity's launch, one thing stood head and shoulders above the rest, and that was those ridiculous system requirements. They were so far above and beyond anything we'd seen, we were just itching to give it a go.

The minimum demands of a GeForce GTX 680 sounded crazy on paper, and the £400+ graphics card requirement looked like it could well be spelling doom for Assassin's Creed Unity on the GD Machine 2014 with its GeForce GTX 750 Ti. We've seen how it's already dispatched the likes of Alien Isolation and Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with ease though, so we had high hopes it would be able to handle AC Unity, armed with the aforementioned 750 Ti and an Intel i5-4670K processor with 8GB RAM.

Third Assassins Creed Unity Patch Tackles Frame Rate But Leaves Massive Crowds

Written by Stuart Thomas on 20 November 2014 at 15:45

A third Assassin’s Creed Unity patch is in development, and this one looks to be aimed squarely at the performance issues facing many gamers. It’s easy to forget it’s only been just over a week since Assassin’s Creed Unity launched but the large number of problems and embarrassing technical hiccups have forced Ubisoft into overdrive as it frantically looks to plug the holes.

The newest patch in development for Assassin’s Creed Unity is a biggy, finally tackling those framerate issues and improving performance across the board, but thankfully not at the cost of the thousands-strong crowds that are such a striking feature of this Parisian adventure. [More]

Dragon Age: Inquisition Stuttering Cutscenes 30FPS Lock Fix

Written by Jon Sutton on 20 November 2014 at 14:30

A number of gamers have been experiencing some serious stuttering issues during cutscenes in Dragon Age: Inquisition, despite many of those suffering the problem running it on some beefy rigs. The problems seems to be affecting all platforms, with the consoles also struggling with the cut scenes in BioWare’s latest RPG.

If you are having problems with stuttering in Dragon Age 3 then luckily help is at hand, for PC gamers at least, and it can make those jitters a thing of the past. The problem stems from the cut-scenes being locked at 30 frames per second, and it seems like they are desyncing and causing all sorts of strange issues. BioWare is intending to release a fix that removes the 30 frames per second cap in Dragon Age 3: Inquisition, but until then here’s a simple workaround. [More]
