Ideal Graphics Card Upgrades For Small Form Factor Gaming PCs

Written by Joffy S on 31 January 2015 at 16:00

Increasingly in this day and age we're seeing more and more Small Form Factor (SFF) or 'ITX' builds cropping up. It used to be hulking great beasts or nothing, but now we're seeing svelte front-room beauties and tiny portable builds on the rise.

When splashing out on one of these builds or looking for an upgrade though, one of the biggest concerns is the graphics card. The power-hungry centre of any gaming PC, they're often large, noisy, and very hot. Luckily there's a few choices out there for space-conscious users, with a number of GPU manufacturers even making specialised 'ITX' versions of their more popular high-end cards. Here we're taking a run-down of some of the best smaller graphics out there for new systems or upgrades. [More]

Prison Architect Up For Parole - Launching On PC In 2015

Written by Stuart Thomas on 31 January 2015 at 14:00

I thought I’d be old, grey, and wizened when I finally typed these words, but Introversion has announced that Prison Architect will be launching this year. Let me type that again so I can believe myself - Prison Architect will be leaving Early Access by the end of the year 2015.

No concrete date has been set yet, but Prison Architect will be arriving on PC, with Introversion working on a mobile version and also looking for a retail partner for a potential console iteration. Prison Architect has just hit Alpha release 29, and has been loitering on Steam Early Access since back when it was first introduced in March 2013. [More]

Resident Evil HD Review : You Were Almost A Jill Sandwich!

Written by roley4498 on 31 January 2015 at 12:00

Capcom's back with a retread of one of the greatest horror games of all time, and the Japanese developer is firmly adopting the mantra of if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Chris and Jill's adventure through the creaking Spencer Mansion was always quirky, unsettling, and unremittingly tense, with this HD remaster serving to give a fresh lick of paint for today's gamers.

Resident Evil HD Remaster has all the jumps and scares with a few extra surprises for those who have only played the original and anyone returning from the Gamecube version will get more or less the same epic survival horror game but with improved visuals and effects. [More]

Another month, another line-up of games for PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live Games With Gold subscribers. January’s been a pretty desperate month when it comes to new game releases so console owners will be waiting with bated breath to scoop up these gaming delights.

What Are You Playing This Weekend - February 2015 Edition

Written by Joffy S on 30 January 2015 at 18:00

We’ve made it! The Worst Month Of The Year™ is officially coming to a close. January’s often a bleak, bleak month for new game releases, but at least we had Dying Light to keep us company when GTA V upped and left us without so much as a goodbye.

As we cruise into February things are really looking to heat up, with Evolve, Total War: Attila, and The Order: 1886 all battling for your hard-earned cash. Before these gaming behemoths arrive though, what digital delights will you be playing over the coming weekend… [More]

DICE Reveal New Star Wars Battlefront Concept Art As It Nears Spring Unveiling

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 January 2015 at 16:30

We’re in the year of Star Wars now. It might not feel like it, but give it 6 months and anticipation for The Force Awakens will be approaching fever pitch. EA and DICE know this all too well, which it is attempting a monumental push to have Star Wars Battlefront out in time for the holidays.

Having seen precious little of the title in the past few years, we’ve finally got our hands on some brand new concept art, as well as further details on its development and how the final game should hopefully pan out. The image shows a pair of Rebel soldiers attempting to flank some Stormtroopers and an AT-ST on Endor, as a familiar movie location is reworked for all-out multiplayer warfare. [More]

GeForce GTX 670 Dying Light 1080p High Settings Footage

Written by Joffy S on 30 January 2015 at 15:15

 We've been busy putting Dying Light through all sorts of tests this week. Techland's open-world opus is a pretty magnificent step up from Dead Island, but it's also a much more demanding experience because of this.

Smashing out zombie faces and luring gangs into tantalising placed pools of petrol unfortunately doesn't come without its fair share of hardware demands. The mighty GeForce GTX 670, an absolute brute of its time, is now some way below the recommended requirements for Dying Light. If you're packing one of these and are unsure whether to splash the cash on Dying Light, then we've put together a 1080p gameplay video at High settings so you can exactly how it'll play. [More]

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Its Off To Work We Go In Medieval Engineers

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 January 2015 at 14:00

If the thought of whizzing around the gravity-free depths of space sends you nauseatingly over the edge, but you just love being a virtual engineer, then Keen Software House has you covered with Medieval Engineers.

The beardier cousin to the Early Access success that is Space Engineers, Medieval Engineers has you and your fellow ginger beers dreaming up vast cities and castles, no doubt to litter them with plague victims and turnip farmers. In between all that building and terraforming though, you can also smash your creations to pieces with home-made trebuchets and other such joyful weapons of war. [More]

Battlefield Hardline Beta Begins Next Week On All Platforms

Written by Joffy S on 30 January 2015 at 12:45

EA has confirmed the Battlefield Hardline beta will be starting next week, and will be running from Tuesday, February 3rd through to Sunday, February 8th. The beta for Visceral Games’ multiplayer-focused shooter will be going live on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

The beta will be the first time we’ll have got our hands on the new Hotwire wide, which focuses on high-speed car chases across the sprawling maps. The criminals are tasked with stealing a list of marked cars while the cops must do their best to take them back. To make that wait until Tuesday a little easier though, Visceral Games has also revealed an extensive new gameplay trailer detailing all of BF: Hardline’s mechanics. [More]
