Nvidia Responds To Claims The GeForce GTX 970 Is Not Using 4GB VRAM

Written by Joffy S on 26 January 2015 at 17:30

Nvidia has issued an official statement following the controversy surrounding the GeForce GTX 970 memory allocation, which saw upwards of 512MB VRAM going apparently unused on Nvidia’s high-end graphics card. What users were reporting was basically that the GTX 970’s VRAM usage was topping out at around 3.5GB, rather than 4GB as advertised.

What made matters more confusing was that both the GTX 970 and the GTX 980 had identical memory configurations, with 4GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit interface. The GTX 980 is working exactly as intended but the GTX 970 is a whole different kettle of fish. All manufacturer’s graphics cards look to be affected to some degree, and Nvidia has now offered up an explanation as to why this is occurring. [More]

Grim Fandango Remastered System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 26 January 2015 at 16:30

Ah, Manny Calavera, I think it's time for me and you to take a swift jaunt down memory lane. LucasArts sublime foray into 3D adventure that was Grim Fandango was at once a monument to what adventure gaming could be, and also the death knell of an era of point and clicks. It was LucasArts at its absolute finest.

The tale of a travel agent for the Department of Death, Grim Fandango saw the cigarillo-chomping Manny Calavera selling travel packages to newly-arrived souls. Whether they take the four-minute Number Nine or travel the Land of the Dead on foot was down to Manny, who becomes embroiled in a plot to steal a client from a co-worker. Given a fresh lick of paint for Grim Fandango Remastered, it's time to step into his shoes once more. To find out whether your gaming PC is at death's door or ready for some reaping of its own, read on to check out the official Grim Fandango Remastered system requirements. [More]

More Than 15 Minutes Of In-Game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Footage Revealed

Written by Joffy S on 26 January 2015 at 15:30

Apologies for flooding you with not one, but two The Witcher 3 stories today, but we thought you might not be able to resist 15 minutes of brand-new in-game footage from CD Projekt RED’s RPG.

We’ve got three new gameplay trailers giving us one of the most in-depth looks yet at what we can expect from Geralt’s adventure, including a hectic dungeon romp against some wraithlike creates and some glorious horse-riding through some snowcapped peaks and wooded highlands. [More]

Planetside 2 Players Smash Guinness World Record With 1158 Player Battle

Written by Neil Soutter on 26 January 2015 at 14:30

The Guinness World Record for the biggest FPS battle in history was set by Planetside 2 players over the weekend. More than 1000 people gathered to become part of a titanic battle that would go down in gaming history, attempting to officially reclaim the Guinness World Record for ‘Most Players Online in an FPS Battle.’

The record was previously held by Man vs Machine who created a game back in 2012 purely for the purposes of beating the record set by Planetside. They were probably a bit miffed they only managed to get 999 players concurrently, one short of that elusive thousand, but Planetside 2 players have well and truly smashed that record anyway with a 1,158 player faceoff. In Battlefield 4 maths, that’s the equivalent of 18 full-capacity 64-player servers simultaneously. Kaboom indeed. [More]

Ubisoft Removing Copies Of Far Cry 4 Bought From Third Parties

Written by Joffy S on 26 January 2015 at 13:25

It’s emerged over the weekend that Ubisoft has begun deleting copies of Far Cry 4 bought through some third-party digital retailers. Customers of both G2Play and G2A are reporting that access to Far Cry 4 is being rescinded as Ubisoft engages in a widespread culling of illicitly gained CD keys.

Users were given no warning that access would be removed, and Ubisoft has issued a statement that those affected should contact the original seller in order to sort the matter out. While G2A and G2Play customers are the primary ones affected, many eBay users have also reported loss of access to Far Cry 4. [More]

Homeworld Remastered Collection Ready For Lift-Off On February 25th

Written by Stuart Thomas on 26 January 2015 at 12:19

In the pantheon of real-time strategy games set within the depths of space, the original Homeworld and its sequel still lord it over all and sundry. Strategy games in 3D space have always been a bit of quandary, but Relic Entertainment made it look easy with Homeworld, delivering an epic sci-fi plot within awe-inspiring intergalactic environments.

That was back in 1999 though and things have changed. Homeworld is no longer the fresh-faced beauty it once was, but it will be again soon with the Homeworld Remastered Collection from Borderlands developer Gearbox. Collecting the original Homeworld and Homeworld 2, the Homeworld Remastered Collection is coming to PC next month, and we’ve got the official trailer for you to gawp over. [More]

Forget The Graphical Downgrade, These Latest Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Screens Look Jawdropping

Written by Neil Soutter on 26 January 2015 at 10:15

Rumours might have been rife a few months back that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt had received a Watch Dogs-esque graphical downgrade, but if these latest screenshots are anything to go by then we are in for a visual treat. 

CD Projekt RED's sprawling RPG looks beyond incredible at the moment, with these latest screens showcasing Geralt going to toe to talon with a gigantic Griffin, as well as exploring some of the dense townscapes set to litter this vast world. It doesn't look like Geralt's too popular a chap wherever he goes though, particularly for someone who's kind enough to be a monster-hunter. [More]

Up For Debate - Favourite PC Gaming Controller

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

Up until about a year ago the issue of which controller to use was a one-stop shop - the Xbox 360 controller. We spent decades making use of assorted third-party tat for years, and then Microsoft delivered one of the ultimate PC gaming controllers in the form of the Xbox 360 gamepad. Finally we had a universal gamepad that was being accepted in games across the board, with appropriate on-screen button prompts.

The PlayStation 3 controller was also made compatible with PCs in a roundabout way, but the support was never there for it on a large scale. Fast forward a few years to now though, and we’ve got even more choice when it comes to which PC gamepad to use. Microsoft updated its classic controller and brought us the PC-compatible Xbox One gamepad, while Sony pulled a surprise out of the bag with the DualShock 4, completely annihilating its predecessor in pretty much every respect.
