Master Of Orion System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 01 July 2015 at 12:45

For GD’ers of a certain age, the name Master of Orion may bring up a certain twinkly-eyed nostalgia. The 4X sci-fi strategy game from Simtex followed in the footsteps of Civilization, this time delivering an epic space-faring TBS in which ten races battle for supremacy throughout a vast galaxy.

Now, it’s back, being developed by NGD Studios with the help of World of Tanks publisher Wargaming.net. A reimagining of a strategy classic, players must explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate their foes over a huge 100 star system map, utilising diplomacy, advanced technology, and conquest to win them over. Before you start buying your rocket fuel and flying off into space, check to see whether your PC can hit warp speed 7 with the official Master of Orion 2015 system requirements. [More]

The work of a career criminal is never over. There’s also one more car to steal. One more drug deal to go awry. One more UFO part to find.

Microsoft Announces Gamescom 2015 Press Conference And Games Lineup

Written by Joffy S on 01 July 2015 at 10:59

I could swear E3 has literally just finished, but Microsoft has already pressed ahead and announced dates for its Gamescom 2015 event in Cologne. The Xbox One is set to get another run-out of games, with Microsoft holding its press conference at 3pm BST on Tuesday, 4th August.

A number of big-hitters from Microsoft dodged E3 emtirely, and they’ll all be cropping up here. Alan Wake developer Remedy Entertainment will be showing off the eagerly anticipated Quantum Break, while Microsoft has also confirmed we'll be getting a look at both Crackdown and Platinum Games’ Scalebound.

Warner Bros Montreal Hiring For All-New Open-World Game

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 June 2015 at 16:30

Warner Bros Montreal, the studio behind Batman: Arkham Origins, is working on an open-world action game, but this time it’s not based on Batman. Following the lukewarm reception to Arkham prequel Origins, WB Montreal is looking to try its hand at something a little different, taking on new staff for a game built around a different IP.

The studio is looking for a number of staff, including a technical director, tasked with being a specialist with the Unreal Engine. "Scripting languages and design tools of the Unreal Engine" is in the description of the job, along with a game designer responsible for “designing and driving development of specific features or systems for an open-world action game."

Nolan North Confirms The Last Of Us 2 Is In The Works

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 June 2015 at 15:15

Nolan North, the voice of practically every video game lead that Troy Baker isn’t, has let slip that a The Last of Us 2 is in the works. The voice actor, who played villain David in The Last of Us, was speaking during a panel at Metrocon 2015. When asked by a fan whether he had any more work lined up at Naughty Dog following his stint on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End, North said "Not yet, I know they're doing The Last of Us 2."

While many have assumed Naughty Dog would work on a The Last of Us sequel, this is the first concrete information we’ve heard so far. The original game is one of the most well-received of all time, scooping up more than 240 Game of the year awards and racking up some considerable sales. [More]

Nvidia Looks To Be Readying A GeForce GTX 950 Ti Graphics Card

Written by Joffy S on 30 June 2015 at 14:00

We’re hearing the first murmurings of a GeForce GTX 950 Ti in the works, suggesting Nvidia is planning to unleash a new Maxwell-powered entry-level graphics card. Both a GTX 950 Ti and a 950 are expected to surface, replacing the current GTX 750 and the impressive GTX 750 Ti.

The graphics processing unit used in the GTX 950 Ti is the GM206-250, and it’s likely to be a cut-down version of the graphics core used in the GTX 960. The 750 Ti was the only 700-series graphics card to already use a Maxwell GPU, so it’s unlikely we’re going to see performance gains as impressive as we saw there, but we're expecting a reasonable bump.

Star Citizens Star Marine FPS Module Delayed Indefinitely

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 June 2015 at 12:45

Last year when we went and had a chat with Cloud Imperium Games’ Erin Roberts he seemed pretty confident that all of base modules for Star Citizen would be in place by now, and the single-player Squadron 42 component would be ready to hit in mid-2015. Fast forward nearly a year, and now the hugely ambitious Star Citizen’s first-person shooter module has been delayed for the foreseeable future, with Squadron 42 expected to follow in its wake. 

CIG and Roberts Space Industries Chris Roberts broke the news via his latest letter to fans, admitting “we feel the current build doesn’t feel like it lives up to the standards we’ve wanted to achieve with Star Citizen.” The Star Marine FPS module was originally planned to go live in April this year, even getting a gameplay runout at PAX East, but several technical and gameplay-related issues have seen it pushed back indefinitely.

Rumour: Microsoft The Latest In Talks With AMD Over Potential Buyout

Written by Joffy S on 30 June 2015 at 11:30

Okay, okay, so rumours of AMD buyouts are two-a-penny these days, but this latest rumour seems to make a lot more sense. Sources close to the matter are suggesting Microsoft is weighing up an offer for AMD, looking to boost its chip design operations.

This would represent a coming together of a software giant with a real hardware force, and for Microsoft’s burgeoning bank balance, AMD’s $1.8 billion valuation would likely be a drop in the water. At the moment both Microsoft and Sony make use of AMD graphics chips in their respective consoles, and Microsoft alone has shelled out more than $1.2 billion for Xbox One chips in the 18 months since launch, money that would be going back into its own pocket should it move ahead with a buyout.

Steam Controller And Steam Link Early Stock Sell Out

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 June 2015 at 10:15

It’s been around a month since the pre-orders went live, but Valve has now confirmed that the early stock of all Steam Hardware is now entirely sold out. This includes Steam Controllers, the Steam Link, and the early variants of the Steam Machines.

Up until now users worldwide had been able to pre-order Valve’s first pieces of hardware (and the third-party Steam Machines), guaranteeing ‘Get it Early’ access on October 16th, nearly a month before the standard available date of November 10th. Valve had said a few weeks back that 35% of the stock had already been sold, and this was clearly enough incentive to get other users grabbing their pre-orders. [More]
