Gabe Newell Responds To Steam Paid Mods Controversy

Written by Stuart Thomas on 27 April 2015 at 12:45

So far the response to paid mods on the Steam store has been anything but positive. Our Up For Debate article over the weekend revealed almost 10 times as many GD’ers reckon all mods should be free as those that don’t. The backlash has been felt across PC gaming, prompting the big man himself, Gabe Newell, to host a 2-hour AMA on Reddit over the weekend.

The Valve head honcho was in a defensive mood over the move, responding to a catalogue of complaints that the move wasn’t in the interest of the PC gaming community, or in the spirit of modding. [More]

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 3 Minimum System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 27 April 2015 at 11:30

In a slightly unusual move, Activision has revealed Call of Duty: Black Ops III's official minimum system requirements alongside the game reveal, a full 6 months ahead of its launch. Treyarch's sci-fi shooter is the first title in the Call of Duty series to be available exclusively on the current-gen consoles, as well as PC of course, and so hopefully a lot has been invested into ensuring this is the best-looking title in the series yet.

Cybernetic implants and a host of robot technology means COD: Black Ops 3 is the most technologically advanced game in the series in more than one way. Jet packs, wall-running, underwater combat, and OTT scorestreaks should ensure total carnage, and you're going to want to making sure your gaming PC can keep up. With that in mind we've got a hold of COD: BLOPS 3's minimum system requirements, and you can check them out now below.   [More]

Call Of Duty: Black Ops III Release Date Announced In Reveal Trailer

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 April 2015 at 10:20

Activision took the wraps off of Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 during a live event last night, showcasing a world-first gameplay trailer for Treyarch’s sci-fi shooter. Set within a dark, gritty future, the lines between man and machine are increasingly blurred in an age of warfare defined by military robotics’ capabilities.

Also revealed was the release date, and as per usual Activision is hitting in time for the holidays, launching on November 6th, 2015, for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Interestingly it looks like this may be the first recent Call of Duty title to skip last-generation platforms. As we’ve come to expect by now, there’s also a pre-order bonus, netting players guaranteed access to a COD: Black Ops III multiplayer beta. [More]

Xenta Folding Gaming Chair Review : Kick Back And Relax

Written by Joffy S on 26 April 2015 at 16:00

Over the last week or so I’ve been putting the Xenta Folding Gaming Chair through its paces. I say I’ve been putting it through its paces, but what that equates to, somewhat gloriously, is sitting down a lot. Oftentimes little thought is given to what we game on, until chronic backache practically forces us to do something about it, but here I am, with Xenta's answer to all our posterior woes.


Up For Debate - Pre-Ordering Games

Written by Joffy S on 26 April 2015 at 14:00

News emerged this week that there was a ‘pre-order crisis’ in Britain and across much of Europe. A crisis, that is, for retailers, rather than us, the gamers. It seems the legions of dodgy launches, shady DLC plans, retailer-exclusive pre-order content, and savvy spenders has seen a turnaround in those willing to put their money where their mouth is before a game is out.

Pre-ordering has always been a thing, but it obviously served a far better purpose when stocks were genuinely limited and it was your only chance at getting your hands on a game. Nowadays every game store you walk in has copies of the latest AAA title stacked 40-deep, and any guarantees of launch day availability mean zilch in the grand scheme of things. [More]

Warhammer 40K: Regicide First Gameplay Trailer Revealed

Written by Stuart Thomas on 26 April 2015 at 12:00

Warhammer 40K games are two-a-penny nowadays, but Hammerfall is taking a different tack with its chess-inspired Warhammer 40,000: Regicide. Taking your inspiration from one oldest and most played games in the world is a good start, and this latest trailer for the Orks vs Space Marines title shows us how it’s going to play out.

To my eyes it’s about as near as we’re going to get to Wizard’s Chess for now, giving the age-old game a sci-fi spit and polish. Warhammer 40K: Regicide , while sure to give the grey matter a bit of a workout, livens things up with snapshot grenades, giblety chunks, and hazardous artillery fire. [More]

The Crew Season Pass Comes To A Close With Raid Pack

Written by Neil Soutter on 26 April 2015 at 10:00

Few games have seemingly drifted in and out of the public consciousness as The Crew, which pounded on by at 200mp/h without so much as looking back. Ubisoft’s open-world racer fell a little flat, despite its potential, but the development team at Ivory Tower have been hard at work in the months since, adding new content to bolster its offerings.

The latest update for The Crew is the Raid Car Pack, the last of four themed packs. A trio of cars are included, each conquering specific terrains. These are joined by all-new Faction missions set across the States, including a raid on America’s prehistoric past and a harsh race set in falling snow. [More]

Up For Debate - Valve Selling Mods On The Skyrim Steam Workshop

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

Valve and Bethesda certainly ruffled a few weathers this week when they announced the Skyrim Steam Workshop was now going to begin selling mods. Up until now the status quo had been set in stone for years - mods were free, but now that’s all set to change.

The community is up in arms. There’s petitions going. There’s talk of jumping ship from Steam. You can almost smell the fire and brimstone as people decry Valve for killing the modding community. There’s two sides to every coin of course, but Valve has certainly begun an interesting time for the PC modding community. [More]
