Dark Souls 3 Minimum System Requirements Revealed

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 12:30

Dark Souls 3 is coming. That should be accompanied by an ominous, Inception-like BWAAH noise. The finale to the beloved trilogy is surely going to take no prisoners, capping a fine series with the grandest, most challenging outing yet. Expect screen-filling bosses, obtuse design, and enemies placed exactly where you'd least expect. Damn you Miyazaki, you swine. 

The game itself is pretty much a known quantity then - more of what we know and love. But what of the PC hardware needed to run Dark Souls III? Well have no fear because we've got you covered, like the warm glow of a bonfire, with official Dark Souls 3 minimum (and predicted recommended) system requirements. Onwards, brave soldiers.  [More]

Layers Of Fear Launch Trailer Paints A Grim Picture As It Flees Early Access

Written by Joffy S on 11 February 2016 at 11:40

Pant wetting psychological horror game Layers of Fear is transforming into its final, terrifying form next week, when it escapes from the clutches of Steam Early Access. A decent example of Early Access done right, in my eyes, Layers of Fear has been available in incomplete form for just six or so months.

Now the full deal is dropping, promising to plunge players into a warped tale seen through the eyes of an insane painter holed up in a Victorian mansion. He’s suffering from a serious case of painters block you see, and I’d hazard a guess he’s partaken in dangerous quantities of illicit substances from the twisted visions he’s seeing. [More]

Frozen Synapse 2 Is Coming To Tax Your Grey Matter In 2016

Written by Stuart Thomas on 11 February 2016 at 10:15

I’ve realised today that I’m still trying to get my head around the fact Frozen Synapse and Frozen Cortex aren't one and the same thing. But they very much aren’t! Confusion is sparked from the similar style you see, and the fact they’re both from developer Mode 7 Games. I tell you this because they've just announced Frozen Synapse 2, which is the simultaneous-turn-based tactical one. Oh damn, that doesn’t help. It’s the one that’s not like American Football!

Frozen Synapse 2 is coming then, a sequel to the tactical pseudo turn-based top-down strategy game which won our hearts and beat our brains into a pulp. It’s like Doorkickers before Doorkickers was even a thing. Things are changing up significantly for the sequel though. Where Frozen Synapse was all about small, procedurally generated levels, Frozen Synapse 2 is set to take place in an open world, of all places. [More]

American Truck Simulator PC Low vs Ultra Graphics Benchmark Video

Written by Jacques Waugh on 10 February 2016 at 17:00

Over the last decade or so, certain genres of gaming have established their place in the industry and created an entire submarket of games for players to enjoy. While genres such as first person shooters and role playing games may be the first one on everyone's mind, simulation games have slowly risen to popularity beyond just the niche of people who directly work in the industry.

American Truck Simulator is the latest entry and seems set to follow the success of its Euro Truck sister franchise  and so we hopped in a cab, turned the country blues to full and tested the game's PC performance using our MSI AMD Radeon R9 380 2GB graphics card. [More]

The Walking Dead Michonne Mini-Series Kicks Off With Episode 1 - In Too Deep This Month

Written by Neil Soutter on 10 February 2016 at 15:45

Like the zombies that inspire it, Telltale Games’ The Walking Dead is one episodic series that just won’t stay down. Nor should it of course; The Walking Dead has gifted us with some of the finest adventure gaming in years over the course of two seasons. It’s corpse is shambling up for more this month, with Telltale announcing the first episode of its The Walking Dead: Michonnethe  mini-series is coming soon.

The Walking Dead: Michonne - Episode 1: In Too Deep kickstarts the spin-off, which focuses on Michonne from the original comics and TV series. She hasn’t cropped up in the games yet so she might not be familiar to everyone, but the general gist of it is that she leaves the main group for a while early on, and this mini-series will explore what zombie slaying she got up to in her downtime.

Overwatch Beta Is Back With Control Mode, Two New Maps, And Full Levelling System

Written by Joffy S on 10 February 2016 at 14:15

The Overwatch beta is back in full force. Or at least I hear it is. I’m still sat staring glumly at my inbox, waiting for an invite to drop in. Alas no luck just yet, but Blizzard has said it’s just sent out another round, so keep an eye out. If you’ve been accepted already then Blizzard is ringing in the changes with this updated beta test, including new maps, a new game mode, and the usual balancing tweaks,

Perhaps best of all the progression system’s been implemented. We’ve been pondering just how Blizzard was intending to keep players hooked in for the long term, but it looks as if a decent solution has been found. Regardless of which character you play as, you’ll contribute experience gained to your account’s overall level. Rank up and a loot crate will drop containing four random cosmetic items. These could be skins, animations and even voice packs with which to further customise your heroes. [More]

The Case Reopens For Sherlock Holmes And The Devils Daughter This May

Written by Stuart Thomas on 10 February 2016 at 13:05

2014’s Sherlock Holmes: Crimes & Punishments was actually surprisingly excellent. A long-running series not without its fair share of duds, Crimes and Punishments had a unique deduction board mechanic whereby clues were piece together. Depending on your interpretation of the evidence, you could even finger the wrong perp, so to speak.

Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter looks to be Frogware picking up precisely where it left off, with a visually stunning adventure game set in and around some of Victorian London’s most iconic landmarks. The good news is a release date has been announced, and we haven’t long to sit around and wait - the case is opening on May 27th, when Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter arrives for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Total War: Attila Slavic Nations Expansion Is Coming, And Hunbelievably It May Be Free

Written by Neil Soutter on 10 February 2016 at 11:55

If the Greenskins, Chaos Warriors, Vampire Counts and Dwarfs of Total War: Warhammer aren’t your bag, then you’re probably crazy. Crazy people still love to play games though, it turns out, and the Creative Assembly have you got us covered with yet another expansion pack for Total War: Attila. Creative Assembly have touted a February 25th release date for the DLC, and there’s also a possibility it may well be available free of charge.

This time it’s the Slavic nations given the special treatment, with the Total War: Attila - Slavic Nations Culture Pack adding in three new playable factions to complement the already extensive choices. Clearly my history skills need a bit of a dust off because none of these are familiar to me, but the pack contains the Anteans, Sclavenians and Venedians. [More]

The Division Is Back With An Open Beta, Factions Trailer And Eye-Opening Player Stats

Written by Joffy S on 10 February 2016 at 10:15

Quelle surprise, the Tom Clancy’s The Division beta is back, and this time it’s open to all. You kind of have to feel for the thousands, or potentially millions of players that Ubisoft encouraged to buy into or pre-order the beta, when just a fortnight later it's available to everybody. 

Expect a stampede of gamers causing absolutely crushed servers, but if you do manage to wriggle your way in, there’s going to be some significant changes from the last run out. That includes a brand new mission dubbed Subway Morgue in which players will encounter a new enemy faction known as The Cleaners. To get a feel for all the factions that are out for blood there’s also a brand new trailer to feast your eyes on., which includes the likes of Rioters, Rikers Island convicts, and now The Cleaners, to name but a few.
