Picking up Forza Horizon 3 today? You may want to hold fire for a little while. Initial impressions coming out about the PC port aren’t too promising. Quite a number of people are reporting issues with hitting a steady 60 frames per second frame rate, possibly tied into the Encrypting File System for Windows 10 Apps which Microsoft has introduced here with Forza Horizon 3.

Despite Sega’s rise a a PC-oriented publisher, there’s still a few of its key franchises conspicuous by their absence. The biggest of these has to be the long-running Yakuza series. Spiritual successor to Shenmue and a bit of a big deal on PlayStation consoles. Judging from the released box art for the upcoming Yakuza 0 though, there could still be hope for a PC release. [More]

Our man Xquatrox got some hands on time with Gears of War 4 at EGX this week. They had some pretty sweet GeForce-sponsored set ups going on, each PC equipped with an absolute powerhouse of a graphics card - a GeForce GTX 1080. [More]

I can’t say I was ever needing an excuse to play Dishonored 2 through twice, what with Emily Kaldwin and Corvo Attano packing totally different superpowers with which to murder their way through the streets of Karnaca / possess rats. Now we’ve got one though, courtesy of game designer Harvey Smith, who’s said players will need to play through Dishonored 2 as both Emily and Corvo in order to fully understand its story. [More]

I don’t know about you, but if I’d spent the grand sum of $100 for the Forza Horizon 3: Ultimate Edition, I’d kind of be expecting any post-launch DLC to be thrown into the bargain. Well, that was the case at first, but now Microsoft has informed Ultimate Edition buyers that their deluxe package won’t include two newly announced expansion packs. [More]

If any theme park management games want to be taken seriously, handling forty tonnes of metal crashing at speeds in excess of 100km/h should be a top priority. It's like wanting to know how we can kill our Sims in a new The Sims game. Evidently it’s an item at the top of the agenda for Frontier with Planet Coaster. A new trailer shows off the physics based craziness that can occur should one of your high-speed monstrosities go a little ‘off-piste’. [More]

Nvidia is putting the parts in place to launch its budget-priced GeForce GTX 1050 and GeForce GTX 1050 Ti graphics cards this October, according to a fresh leak. Both of the new 10 Series graphics cards will be equipped with a Pascal GP107 graphics processor manufactured on the 16nm FinFET fabrication process. This delivers the performance and efficiency gains of Pascal but for the more budget conscious PC gamer. [More]

It might not be quite what we were expecting from the Sleeping Dogs devs, but United Front Games returns this month with a twist on old-school beat-em-ups. Smash + Grab is an online gang battle, pitting teams of thugs against each other in a battle to loot a city while causing as much damage and mayhem as possible. It's Streets of Rage for the 21st century. Before you go a throw a brick through that shop window though, make sure you know which PC components you're going to have to loot to meet the official Smash + Grab system requirements.   [More]

If you’re as tired as me of how stagnant Steam has been the last couple of years, you might be pleased to hear some wholesale changes are coming to Valve’s PC game client. A total visual overhaul is the headline feature, giving the home page a visual refresh with a new layout, bigger game images, less clutter and new, more advanced ways of surfacing games you perhaps don’t know about yet.
