The Crew Capped At 30 FPS On PC, Unlocking Cap May Affect Game Performance

Written by Katie Allen on 26 August 2014 at 17:00

Ubisoft may have promised last week that it was committed to improving performance of its games on PC, but that claim is likely to be greeted with some skepticism after it emerged yesterday that The Crew on PC would have its frame rate artificially capped for stability.

According to a Ubisoft community manager on the forum for the PC beta of The Crew, the game will run at 30FPS for its final release on PC. Whilst it will be possible to raise the frame rate cap to 60FPS manually, this may “affect the game’s performance”. [More]

If you attempted to log on to PSN on Sunday, you may have been affected by the DDOS that shut down the service over the weekend. The group that targeted Sony’s network - @LizardSquad - also affected services on Battle.net, League of Legends and Path of Exile.

It seems the group weren’t only content with ruining people’s gaming Sundays, however. According to reports, the FBI is now investigating following a tweet sent by the group to American Airlines, in which they claimed that a plane carrying SOE boss John Smedley had explosives on board. [More]

NBA 2K15 Gets First Official Gameplay Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 26 August 2014 at 10:17

NBA 2K15 may already have its official system requirements and an October 7th release date, but until now we’d seen no actual gameplay from the title. That’s just changed, as publishers 2K Games have unveiled a gameplay trailer for the game.

The soundtrack is a little bit of a departure from the traditional hip hop music track of the NBA games; the Red Hot Chilli Peppers’ Suck My Kiss accompanies this particular footage... [More]

RRAM - The Future Of Computer Memory

Written by Jon Sutton on 25 August 2014 at 17:00

Storage on PCs has long been a problem. Back in the mists of time people thought the humble 1.44MB floppy disk was a storage beast. It wasn’t long until they were fumbling through their copies of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, looking for that blasted fifth floppy to continue their adventure. Storage has grown exponentially, but no matter how much we get we always want more. That all changed over the last few years, and now we want faster and faster. SSD’s deliver the goods for a premium price, but they’re let down by short lifespans.

RRAM, or high-capacity Resistive RAM, is thought to be the future of computer memory. Off-limits to the average consumer since its conception, RRAM is now closer than ever to commercial release. Cited as a flash RAM killer, RRAM promises to have 20 times the write performance of NAND flash memory, but at a fraction of the size and drawing on a fraction of the power. [More]

Monochroma Review : Fifty Shades Of Grey

Written by Katie Allen on 25 August 2014 at 15:00

There’s a plethora of indie platformers out there right now. In such a crowded genre, it’s hard for games to stand out. In order to do so, they need something special; a unique concept, striking visuals, an original mechanic. When I first saw the greyscale, dystopian landscape in Monochroma, then, I was intrigued; the story of one boy and his brother making their way through the empty, slightly haunting city prison seemed like a fascinating concept.

In visuals, many have pointed out that the colour scheme of Monochroma instantly encourages comparison with the classic Limbo, and this is not where the similarities end. Like Limbo, Monochroma’s story contains no words; instead, it is discovery through visuals, through the journey itself. Sadly, however, the life and vitality required by such a narrative style is strangely lacking, and Monochroma’s interesting concept doesn’t always deliver when it comes to gameplay. [More]
