Ubisoft Montreal Creative Director Outlines Crazy Plans For Watch Dogs 2

Written by Jon Sutton on 30 September 2014 at 14:00

Ubisoft has outlined some pretty outlandish plans for the inevitable Watch Dogs sequel, where it looks to be taking the citizen profiler to the next level. The profiler was a no doubt a double-edged sword, offering us superficial insights into the lives of those around us but all too often seeming shallow and repetitious.

Watch Dogs’ creative director Jonathan Morin sees the potential in this system though, with plans to push this feature and build upon the foundations laid by it for Watch Dogs 2, the aim being to humanise the people around you which he sees “as the beginning of something that is quite unique and could push the industry forward.” [More]

Obsess For Hours Over Character Creation In Latest Dragon Age: Inquisition Trailers

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 September 2014 at 12:45

If you’re like me and can spend hours obsessing over the minutest details on your character’s face, from the size of their jowls down to the pointiness of their ears then you’ll be eager to get a look at what Dragon Age: Inquisition’s character creation tools can do.

A pair of new videos have come out of BioWare HQ so you can see for yourself what the fuss is about, as Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw gets to work customising a range of different races. Whether creating horned qunari monstrosities or gaunt elven thieves it seems like there’s a fair whack of customisation available here, although players will be limited to presets rather than the freedom offered by a genuine slider bar.  [More]

X Rebirth Is Reborn Once Again With 3.0 Update And Teladi Outpost Expansion

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 September 2014 at 11:40

By now the launch of X Rebirth is the stuff of legend. Not the good sort of legend like Robin Hood or Shangri La, but more sort of Vlad the Impaler or perhaps Medusa’s love life - not exactly something to shout about. The hotly anticipated sci-fi sequel could only aspire to even be a damp squib by the time reviews crept out, and since then Egosoft has gone back to the drawing board, not once, but twice.

In an effort to erase the memories of that terrible launch Egosoft has announced X Rebirth 3.0, a reworking of the original game incorporating a host of fixes, ‘improvements’ and new gameplay features that should hopefully finally make it worth splashing some cash on. As well as this Egosoft has revealed the Teladi Outpost expansion that’s coming in November, adding a swathe of new story-based content and an entirely new star system to explore. [More]

Every Last Bullet Counts In The Evil Within Trailer

Written by Jon Sutton on 30 September 2014 at 10:15

It’s only a fortnight to go until I’ll no doubt have to suffer the ordeal of reviewing The Evil Within, and the latest disturbed trailer suggests this won't be cakewalk. Twisted abominations and sickening death traps greet those who’re up for Shinji Mikami’s latest, which takes players on a warped journey through an ever-changing house of horrors.

This latest trailer’s all about surviving, and what you’ll need to maximise your infinitesimally small chances of making it out alive. Sebastian Castellanos, the detective protagonist of The Evil Within, is investigating what is terrorising the inhabitants of the appropriately-monikered Crimson City. Luckily Castellanos has plenty of options, ranging from straight up gunfights to fisticuffs, explosive traps, and a deadly bolt launcher. If all else fails you can always run like hell and seek refuge in a rickety old cupboard. Probably no match for a buzzing chainsaw but it’s worth a go. [More]

Gauntlet 2014 Benchmarks Intel HD 4000 Integrated Graphics Solution

Written by Felix Nova on 29 September 2014 at 18:20

Gauntlet has been plucked out of the '80s and turned into a modern day Diablo clone that offers simple co-operative fun with your buddies. If you dont have any buddies, go and get some here on GD before you give this a go. Just look at that mayhem in the image above! Gauntlet 2014 is thoroughly integrated with Steam so you can quickly grab a game with anyone you know that has a copy of Gauntlet, or you can play locally as well.

I grew up playing the original. A bunch of guys all crowded around one keyboard, doing their best to make sense of the nonsense on screen. Surely, despite the Gauntlet system requirements asking for some pretty reasonable mid range hardware for recommended settings, Gauntlet could run on our Intel Integrated HD 4000 graphics solution? Well we decided to benchmark Gauntlet with an Intel HD4000 to see if we have another title that will run on a low end, modern laptop and other similar hardware. [More]

Written by Jon Sutton on 29 September 2014 at 17:29

Fourteen of your English pounds gets you the Shadow of Mordor Season Pass. But what do you get for spending the extra cash?

Warner Brothers latest IP, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, is out tomorrow, where you will be able to travel the realms of Middle Earth while you yourself are possessed by a powerful wraith. The wraith happens to give you super powers that you can use against the dark forces, helping you to interrogate but mainly decapitate the dirty greenskin you come across in your quests. [More]

Windows 8 users Should Get Windows 9 As a Free Software Upgrade

Written by Jon Sutton on 29 September 2014 at 16:30

Windows 9 will bring with it Direct X 12, which in turn means some juicy upgrades to gaming as we know it. Or at least thats what us PC gamers are hoping for. But to get this extra experience do we have to purchase yet another version of Windows and do a complete system re-install?

Well hopefully, to those people with Windows 8, the answer is Windows 9 should be free to them as a system update. Therefore once Win 9 hits people can quickly upgrade their operating system, without so much as a second thought about costs and system integration. This seems like a very wise move by Microsoft, who has been losing a lot of faith with PC gamers and PC owners over the past few years. [More]

FIFA Bans Luis Suarez in FIFA 15

Written by Ruben Strubbe on 29 September 2014 at 15:00

Football fans all over the world tuned in to watch the world cup this summer.

One of the more memorable and probably the most controversial moment was during the event when Uruguay striker Luis Suárez took a bite out of Italian defender Giorgio Chiellini. Resulting in a 4 month ban from all football activity, which was later softened down to just the competition matches after he attempted to appeal the ban at the court of arbitration for sport.

Now Is The Best Time to Upgrade Your PC

Written by Felix Nova on 29 September 2014 at 12:30

We have seen some sky high PC system requirements in 2014, attached to some of the biggest titles of the year. Almost all of these high requirement games are available on console and more often than not we call out “bad optimisation” and “terrible console port” to explain why the developer/publisher requests certain high requirements. But in reality we all knew that these high system requirements would come, as this hardware upturn represents a technological shift in gaming.

You see when the next gen consoles arrived last year, game developers threw out their system requirement rule book. For the next year or two, we are going to see a lot more games coming to PC that will ask for todays top end hardware. So get ready to upgrade your system and I will explain why we will get better value for money if we upgrade today rather than waiting. [More]
