Just Cause 3 PC Performance Ultra Vs Low Graphics Benchmarks

Written by Joffy S on 29 November 2015 at 12:00

Just Cause 3 is out this week, in all its glorious, pyrotechnic glory. Total destruction is the aim of the game here, with Avalanch’s modified game engine boasting improved damage modelling and procedural demolition. As you’d expect Just Cause 3 is visually stunning, but just how demanding is it, and how good does it look even down at Low settings? We’ll be taking a look at all of that in our Just Cause 3 GTX 980 Ti performance video.

These performance benchmarks for Just Cause 3 PC, comparing Low vs Ultra graphics, were performed using an Nvidia MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G graphics card, Intel Core i7-5820K processor and 16GB RAM, all at 1920x1080 resolution. [More]

3GB Just Cause 3 Day One Update Explodes Bugs And Optimises Performance

Written by Joffy S on 29 November 2015 at 10:00

It’s not even day one just yet, but Just Cause 3 has already received its Day One Update. If you’ve managed to get a copy early through whatever means then it’s available to download now, weighing in at a fairly hefty 3GB. I say early because it seems as if quite a few people have obtained copies already, thanks to a number of stores breaking street dates.

Just Cause 3 went gold well over a month ago so Avalanche Studios has had plenty of time to tackle any out of the box issues. With this first update we get a number of performance improvements and optimisations, along with the usual bug fixes and last minute tweaks. [More]

Hard West Review : Clint Westwood

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 November 2015 at 17:00

“X-COM MEETS THE WILD WEST!” enthused every Hard West preview ever, and who am I to be any different? Hard West certainly does resemble Firaxis’ award-winning tactical shooter in its isometric battlefields and small-team combat scenarios, as well as its basic combat mechanic – two action points which can be used for movement or shooting – but that’s really about it.

The tale of Hard West is like a western if it was written by Johnny Cash, Nick Cave and Quentin Tarantino. Or should that be tales, because the main campaign is confusingly split into a series of different stories that can be played in a loosely-curated sequence, with prequels and sequels unlocking as you progress. Most of the time they’re stories of betrayal and fallen heroes, who surrender everything to the forces of evil and then get their just rewards. [More]

Step Once More Unto The Breach With The Rainbow Six Siege Launch Trailer

Written by Joffy S on 28 November 2015 at 14:30

Ubisoft is ready to breach and clear your home next week with the launch of Rainbow Six Siege. It’s a bit sad because it marks the end of the holiday season gaming rush, but fingers crossed its multiplayer shooter ends up hitting the target. They ran into some trouble yesterday and had to postpone the beta test, but it's live again now so you can give it go ahead of live. 

In time honoured fashion, the usual formula rings true. Ubisoft + Game Launch = Dramatic Launch Trailer. Their trailer editor must work their arse off this time of year. Just so you know it’s a huge deal that you can raid a bunch of houses next week, Ubisoft’s done a Shakespearean voice-over for full, stirring effect. [More]

Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 Going Free To Play On December 8th

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 November 2015 at 13:00

Konami has confirmed the rumours we heard earlier this year and announced Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 will be getting a free-to-play version. PES 2016 F2P edition kicks off on December 8th, and provides a limited version of the full boxed title. Which sounds suspiciously like a thing we used to call a 'demo'. Players will have access to seven of the biggest teams in the world for Exhibition Mode, the full Training section, and, the big sell, the entire myClub mode.

myClub is PES 2016’s version of FIFA’s Ultimate Team, and allows you to buy packs of players and build a winning team up from scratch. For many this mode is the main draw of football games these days, so it’s nice to see a way to skip picking up a retail copy. Playable both online and offline, you can play matches to earn an in-game currency or pay for micro-transactions to build a world-beating team. [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 November 2015 at 11:30

Short on memory? Perhaps this’ll help then - Samsung has announced it’s begun large scale production of 128GB DDR4 modules.Yes, 128GB on a single stick. This is the world’s first commercially available 128GB RAM module, with Samsung claiming these are industry leading in terms of both energy efficiency and capacity.

We are pleased that volume production of our high speed, low-power 128GB TSV DRAM module will enable our global customers and partners to launch a new generation of enterprise solutions with dramatically improved efficiency and scalability for their investment,” said Joo Sun Choi, executive vice president or memory sales and marketing at Samsung.

Modders Are Remaking The Entire Original Fallout In Fallout New Vegas

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 November 2015 at 10:00

It seems like one of the modding communities’ favourite things is remaking old games in new engines. We’re seeing it with Morroblivion, Skywind and Skyblivion. The only thing is, by the time they actually get anywhere with it, a new game in the series is already out on a new engine, rendering it a teeny bit redundant. If they had the cash to do it full time it would no doubt be a different matter. But that’s a paid mods discussion for another time...

The latest of these remakes is simply Fallout - The Story. The entire isometric RPG from Interplay, originally launched back in 1997, is being ported into Fallout: New Vegas. The aim is to redo the whole game from the ground up in the 3D engine, breathing new life into the stellar post-apocalyptic classic. [More]

AMD Users Find Radeon Crimson Driver Bug Is Throttling Fan Speed And Raising Temps

Written by Joffy S on 27 November 2015 at 16:00

GD’er Rayyan51 contacted me today saying that he’d been having problems with his Radeon R7 250X since installing the latest Radeon Software Crimson Edition drivers. AMD’s massive driver overhaul arrived earlier this week, packing in all sorts of benefits and performance boosts. For Rayyan51 though, it just caused issues.

The Crimson Driver software was adjusting the GPU fan speed down to 30%, whatever the demands of the game. He turned it to auto but again it reset to 30% following a complete reboot. So I did a little bit of digging and it turns out Rayyan51 isn’t alone. There’s plenty of other people experiencing similar problems. Lowering the fan speed can have a serious impact on a graphics card’s heat dissipation, which can cause damage to your rig in the long run. [More]
