Original Deus Ex Has Been Augmented With Revival Total Makeover Mod

Written by Joffy S on 13 October 2015 at 17:23

I love surprises, and the news that Deus Ex: Revision is out today is exactly that. I mean, I hadn’t even heard of its existence until now, but it’s a Square Enix-sanctioned total makeover for the original Deus Ex that should be the perfect holdover until Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

The fan-created Deus Ex: Revision mod provides a top to bottom overhaul of the visuals, environments and the soundtrack, and is available today as a free download for the original Deus Ex on Steam. “Where other projects fill in detail around the edges of the game by tuning gameplay mechanics or improving textures, we focus on the visceral core of the Deus Ex experience, bringing new level design, aesthetic direction and world-building detail,” said John French, creative director at Caustic Creative.

Final ThreeStar Wars Battlefront Modes Detailed - Cargo, Hero Hunt And Droid Run

Written by Stuart Thomas on 13 October 2015 at 15:15

As we near near the end of its open beta, DICE has revealed the final three modes coming to Star Wars Battlefront when it launches next month. All three of the modes are relatively small in scale, offering differing objective-based play. The simplest of these is Hero Hunt. This is a 7v1 mode in which one player is the hero, such as Boba Fett, Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader, while the rest have to try and kill them. Whoever successfully kills the hero becomes one, and is hunted by the remaining seven players.

Next up is Cargo. This is sort of like Capture the Flag and has Rebels and Imperials duking it out over some precious loot. The difference with this 6v6 mode though is that players don’t need to grab the cargo from their opponent’s base; it’s going to appear somewhere in the level before players fight over it. DICE reckon this "this creates a tug of war experience where you simply need to collect as much cargo as possible." [More]

Stairs Review : Descent Into Madness

Written by Philrock on 13 October 2015 at 14:00

Horror is a funny beast. It comes in many shapes, sizes and flavours. From visceral imagery to loud and in-your-face jump scares. We all feel fear, and if our nightmares can teach us anything, it’s that the things we conjure up in our own minds can often be the most terrifying.


Allison Road Kickstarter Cancelled, But Team17 Agree To Publishing Deal

Written by Neil Soutter on 13 October 2015 at 12:45

P.T.-inspired Allison Road went up on Kickstarter a few weeks ago, and much to our dismay it was pulled down before the end of funding. Luckily there was nothing nefarious going on behind the scenes. Rather the Allison Road development studio had agreed a publishing deal with the revitalised Worms creators at Team17.

Allison Road looked as if it was well on its way to succeeding its funding goal, but the team instead chose to publish with Team17. "We have decided to withdraw the Kickstarter campaign to allow us to commit 100% to an opportunity that will give us the chance as a team to create the best game possible," wrote Lilith in the final Kickstarter update. "For us it’s an incredible opportunity to be part of a label that looks after not only such a massive gaming franchise, but also supports developers like Playtonic, Mouldy Toof and many others."

EA Reveal 50 Dollar Season Pass For Star Wars Battlefront - 140 USD For Ultimate Edition

Written by Joffy S on 13 October 2015 at 11:30

As surely as Tatooine has three moons, it was stunning obviously EA would announce a Season Pass for Star Wars Battlefront. It’s a trap, Admiral Ackbar would warn us, and he’s probably right, the wise old squidman he is.

As you’d expect from a DICE season pass, it’s not going to be cheap either. The Star Wars Battlefront Season Pass runs for $50, and that will net you access to four planned DLC packs. The eagle-eyed among you may note the previous Premium Passes have stretched to five expansions but this has been trimmed back to four; both for Star Wars Battlefront and Battlefield Hardline.

Firewatch Catches Ablaze On February 9 2016 For PC And PS4

Written by Stuart Thomas on 13 October 2015 at 10:17

Campo Santo, a new studio comprised of the talent from the original season of The Walking Dead, Bioshock 2 and Mark of the Ninja, has announced its upcoming first-person adventure game Firewatch will be launching on February 9th, 2016, for PC and PlayStation 4.

Appropriately enough, Firewatch is a game about watching fires. It’s set within the forests of Wyoming over the course of an evening, with players taking on the role of a resident park ranger. Suffice to say, it looks as if there’s plenty more to this countryside trek than meets the eye, with more than a hint of menace lurking beneath its sun-dappled surface. [More]

GD Live Nibbles: Best PC Game Client - Origin Vs Uplay Vs Steam

Written by Felix Nova on 12 October 2015 at 20:00

Testing. Is this thing on? Ah sweet, we’re off. We successfully broadcast our first ever Live GD Gaming show via our dedicated YouTube channel on Saturday 10th. Our awesome host was Tim Edwards and he was joined by Rob Brooks, Jacques Waugh and Tom Greener.  If you missed the incredible 2 hour live video session, it is still available in its entirety for you to watch at your leisure, perhaps supping a pina colada. Thanks to everyone who tuned in. It was classic GD community support and was greatly appreciated.

Obviously it will be among the best two hours of your life if you do/did manage to watch it. But hopefully there will be loads more to come. Taking on-board your feedback me and Tim have had a chat about the next show and I am sure you will be pushing it even more into a live debate, where everyone in the live chat area will get more of a say. Therefore the hardcore GD'ers can directly influence the discussion, giving your thoughts and getting them immortalised forever in our re-watchable Weekly Gaming Nibbles. Its going to be loads of fun and we will all get to know each other even better over the coming weeks and months. [More]

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Director Says Console Ports On PC Are Disrespectful

Written by Neil Soutter on 12 October 2015 at 16:30

Dodgy ports are a hot topic amongst PC gamers. I mean, we’re being treated to more console ports than ever before, which is great, but is that enough to excuse ports being slapped together and thrown out the door without a thought? Not so says Eidos Montreal’s executive game director Jean-Francois Dugas, who’s working on the PC version of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Speaking during a panel at New York Comic Con, Dugas said “console ports on PC are disrespectful”. This man Dugas sounds like our kind of guy. Of course it’s not the console games appearing on PC that’s the problem, but the way in which they are pushed over without any additional features that could take advantage of the power and versatility of gaming PCs.

Microsoft Planning To Phase Out The Control Panel In Windows 10

Written by Stuart Thomas on 12 October 2015 at 15:15

The Control Panel. The mothership for all things Windows. For years and years now it’s been the comfortable home for all things settings. Along the way Microsoft has unnecessarily tweaked it, juggled things around, and generally been a nuisance. But, through thick and thin, the Control Panel has been the reliable place to fiddle with your Windows setup.

All good things come to an end however, and Microsoft's senior program manager Brandon LeBlanc has said the plan is to phase out the Control Panel entirely from Windows 10. If you haven’t been using Windows 10 then it’s worth knowing the classic Control Panel co-exists with the new Settings screen. They kind of do much the same thing but the Settings screen is a little simpler and more refined. However, there ain’t enough room in this town for the both of them. [More]
