Up For Debate - What Is A Suitable Bandwidth For A Gamer

Written by Joffy S on 01 February 2015 at 16:00

Back when I was on dial-up and attempting in vain to make use of any dodgy download accelerator I could get my hands on, the prospect of downloading a 10kb/s was but a pipedream. My measly 3-4kb/s took 15 minutes for a 3MB song, let alone the 300MB Unreal Tournament map pack I sought after.

Fast forward to now and that speed seems almost criminally slow. I’m hooked up to a decent-ish 15Mb/s connection that’s hundreds of times faster, but I still find the odd game plagued with lag issues. I played Delta Force with 49 other people on dial-up and it was great, but every so often a two-player game of FIFA 15 has a fit and lags me to hell and back. [More]

Gaming Platform Face Off - Top 10 Most Popular Games On GD

Written by Joffy S on 01 February 2015 at 14:00

One of the key arguments that often comes when debating which platform is king is cost. The outlay for a decent gaming rig might be fairly massive in comparison to splashing out on a console but it's often been said you can save this many times over via cheaper PC games and magic that is Steam sales.

We thought the easiest way to drill to the truth of this would be to put this to the test, taking a look at the 10 most popular games on Game Debate, and comparing how much each of these would cost when bought on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, both physically and digitally. [More]

SEGA Axes 300 Jobs As It Turns Its Attention To Mobile And PC Gaming

Written by Joffy S on 01 February 2015 at 12:00

There has been another nail in the coffin for the SEGA we know and love, as the Japanese software giant has been forced to cut more than 300 jobs in a massive restructuring of its business operations.

The move comes as SEGA announces a shift away from big-budget boxed retail games, and it will now be focusing its attention on the mobile and PC online sectors - areas which it believes show the most promise for growth. A company often thought of as synonymous with console gaming, SEGA will be preparing for a console-free future. [More]

Uncharted 4: A Thiefs End Screenshots Escape From Their Tomb

Written by Neil Soutter on 01 February 2015 at 10:00

Naughty Dog's slow drip, drip of information on Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is akin to water torture. Sure we were treated to a bit of gameplay back at PlayStation Experience, but any further details as to what the adventure will entail have been depressingly scarce. 

We know Nate's back in some lush locales for his jaunt, traipsing through a rather sweaty looking jungle, but judging from the game's title all's not going to end well for the tomb raider. To help ease the waiting woes though there's a batch of gorgeous new screenshots depicting Nathan Drake leaping, gallivanting, and looking generally a bit miffed with his brother. [More]

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.

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]
