Xenta Folding Gaming Chair Review : Kick Back And Relax

Written by Joffy S on 26 April 2015 at 16:00

Over the last week or so I’ve been putting the Xenta Folding Gaming Chair through its paces. I say I’ve been putting it through its paces, but what that equates to, somewhat gloriously, is sitting down a lot. Oftentimes little thought is given to what we game on, until chronic backache practically forces us to do something about it, but here I am, with Xenta's answer to all our posterior woes.


Up For Debate - Pre-Ordering Games

Written by Joffy S on 26 April 2015 at 14:00

News emerged this week that there was a ‘pre-order crisis’ in Britain and across much of Europe. A crisis, that is, for retailers, rather than us, the gamers. It seems the legions of dodgy launches, shady DLC plans, retailer-exclusive pre-order content, and savvy spenders has seen a turnaround in those willing to put their money where their mouth is before a game is out.

Pre-ordering has always been a thing, but it obviously served a far better purpose when stocks were genuinely limited and it was your only chance at getting your hands on a game. Nowadays every game store you walk in has copies of the latest AAA title stacked 40-deep, and any guarantees of launch day availability mean zilch in the grand scheme of things. [More]

Warhammer 40K: Regicide First Gameplay Trailer Revealed

Written by Stuart Thomas on 26 April 2015 at 12:00

Warhammer 40K games are two-a-penny nowadays, but Hammerfall is taking a different tack with its chess-inspired Warhammer 40,000: Regicide. Taking your inspiration from one oldest and most played games in the world is a good start, and this latest trailer for the Orks vs Space Marines title shows us how it’s going to play out.

To my eyes it’s about as near as we’re going to get to Wizard’s Chess for now, giving the age-old game a sci-fi spit and polish. Warhammer 40K: Regicide , while sure to give the grey matter a bit of a workout, livens things up with snapshot grenades, giblety chunks, and hazardous artillery fire. [More]

The Crew Season Pass Comes To A Close With Raid Pack

Written by Neil Soutter on 26 April 2015 at 10:00

Few games have seemingly drifted in and out of the public consciousness as The Crew, which pounded on by at 200mp/h without so much as looking back. Ubisoft’s open-world racer fell a little flat, despite its potential, but the development team at Ivory Tower have been hard at work in the months since, adding new content to bolster its offerings.

The latest update for The Crew is the Raid Car Pack, the last of four themed packs. A trio of cars are included, each conquering specific terrains. These are joined by all-new Faction missions set across the States, including a raid on America’s prehistoric past and a harsh race set in falling snow. [More]

Up For Debate - Valve Selling Mods On The Skyrim Steam Workshop

Written by Joffy S on 25 April 2015 at 16:00

Valve and Bethesda certainly ruffled a few weathers this week when they announced the Skyrim Steam Workshop was now going to begin selling mods. Up until now the status quo had been set in stone for years - mods were free, but now that’s all set to change.

The community is up in arms. There’s petitions going. There’s talk of jumping ship from Steam. You can almost smell the fire and brimstone as people decry Valve for killing the modding community. There’s two sides to every coin of course, but Valve has certainly begun an interesting time for the PC modding community. [More]

Telltale Games Announces Partnership With Marvel

Written by Neil Soutter on 25 April 2015 at 12:00

Telltale’s knack for pulling in the biggest names knows no bounds it seems, with the episodic specialists confirming a partnership with Disney’s Marvel. The specifics of the deal are unknown, but the pair will be working on a game due to arrive in 2017.

2017 is set to see a number of movies from Marvel, so take your pick out of Guardians of the Galaxy 2, The Spectacular Spider-Man and Thor: Ragnarok as to where Telltale is looking to take its latest series. That, or it could be something totally different. Episodic Ant-Man anyone? [More]

Super Army Soldiers - Rainbow Six: Siege British Unit Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 25 April 2015 at 10:00

Tom Clancy fans will no doubt be aware Rainbow Six is an elite group of counter-terrorist operatives, made up of members of the finest special forces soldiers from around the world. The absolute cream of the crop, the best of the best. We'll soon see that change once I get my hands on them in R6: Siege.

Anyway, Ubisoft has now released the first of a series of Rainbow Six: Siege trailers, each looking at top tactical units from around the globe and how they’re implemented in the multiplayer shooter. We’re set to look at everything from SPETSNAZ to GIGN, GSG9, and FBI SWAT, but we’re kicking things off with the British SAS. [More]

AMD Details Two Major Features Which Provide Huge Performance Gains In DirectX 12

Written by Joffy S on 24 April 2015 at 17:30

DirectX 12 is just around the corner, arriving this summer alongside Windows 10. In terms of what this actually means for us, things are still a little hazy, but AMD’s head of global technical marketing, Robert Hallock, has explained two key features for the upcoming low-overhead graphics API.

The two features in question are Async Shaders and multi-thread command buffer recording. They might sound unfamiliar now, but these two major new additions to DirectX 12 are set to make a significant difference to gaming performance across the board. [More]
