Wasteland 2 Review : Bit Of A Waste

Written by Stuart Thomas on 19 September 2014 at 17:30

Well, it's the era of the retro, isn't it? It seems that you can't move without oldies-but-goodies being necromantically resurrected for another bite of the apple.

Brian Fargo is, like Tim Schafer and Gabe Newell, always big news when he gets his mitts into a new game. Because back in the day, he took us to new worlds. Or, perhaps more specifically, one new world in particular - the blasted post-apocalypse wildernesses of the games Wasteland and Fallout. [More]

Written by Shaheryar Ehsan-i-Haque on 19 September 2014 at 16:30

It's the moment we've all been waiting for; the rumor mill's been gathering speed for quite some time now but Microsoft has finally sent out invites for Windows 9 event to be held at the end of this month.

The event, set to take place in San Francisco, will have Microsoft's Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore leading a presentation on the future of Windows, tailored towards power and enterprise users. The news won't come as a surprise to many after a number of leaked videos detailing the overall usability of the OS were leaked. Up until now we knew that the Start Menu was indeed coming back, but Microsoft is intending to merge this with a Metro UI style layout that looks to offer the best of both worlds. [More]

Final Fantasy XIII System Requirements

Written by Felix Nova on 19 September 2014 at 14:00

Most people would have heard of the Final Fantasy series. Its been going for decades now and Final Fantasy 13 or XIII actually released in 2009 in Japan. Now, five years later, on October 9th, FFXIII is coming to PC. The linearity of this FF title has been a mild sticking point to reviewers of the console versions but this hasn't stop it from being one of the fastest selling editions of the series, enjoying reported sales of over 7 million copies on console versions alone by the end of 2013.

The fast paced RPG has long been anticipated by the PC audience and the release date is within weeks. Speculating what sort of PC the beautiful world of Cocoon needs to present all its colourful imaginings is now moot as we have the full Final Fantasy XIII system requirements on hand. So let's see if you can run FF13 on your computer. [More]

25 Years In The Making - Wasteland 2 Launch Trailer Arrives

Written by Jon Sutton on 19 September 2014 at 11:30

For some, the prospect of roaming the Earth as one of the last known survivors, living off of cans of irradiated Pepsi with naught but an irradiated dog and a lice problem for company, sounds like a terrible way to live out your days.

For others, they’re more than happy to shell out £30 for the pleasure of virtual misery, eking out an existence in a desolate landscape, scavenging for supplies and contemplating the nuisance that is atomic warfare. It’s for people like this that Wasteland 2 exists, and the Kickstarter success story from inXile Entertainment looks to be delivering the goods if the newly-released launch trailer is anything to go by.

Entire Final Fantasy XIII Trilogy Making Its Way To PC

Written by Neil Soutter on 19 September 2014 at 10:17

In an exciting move from Square Enix, the Japanese publisher has confirmed that the entirety of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy will eventually be making its way over to PC, beginning with Final Fantasy XIII arriving next month for the bargain bin price of $16/£11.

Speculation was rife that Square Enix was planning such a move after the Steam logo cropped up on the official Final Fantasy 13 site, and this news has since been confirmed. Square Enix plans to roll out Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2, and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, finally giving PC gamers a chance to hop on board with the latest single-player outings for the series.

Silent Hills TGS Trailer Is Sick, Twisted And All Kinds Of Terrifying

Written by Jon Sutton on 18 September 2014 at 17:17

Konami continued to tease us today at the Tokyo Game Show, releasing another promotional video for the upcoming Silent Hills. Whereas the original interactive teaser shown at E3 2014 seemed to be aimed at catching our eye with the big name announcements of Hollywood director Guillermo Del Toro aboard the production, and The Walking Dead’s fan favourite Norman Reedus giving his likeness to the star role, this new material focuses squarely on letting us know that we will be playing this from behind the sofa.

Despite only being a short trailer,  coming in at just under two minutes, we are pretty much shown everything that's guaranteed to evoke some kind of primal fear within even the most avid horror fan. The footage places us in a derelict dark house, while the faint noise of children’s laughter echoes around. What starts off as just slightly chilling quickly descends into a total nightmare on screen; maggots coming out of the walls, ghostly bloodied handprints and a decapitation all follow in quick succession in what is a frantic and adrenaline-fuelled couple of minutes.

Double Fine Halts Spacebase DF-9 Development And Plans Early Access Exit

Written by Stuart Thomas on 18 September 2014 at 15:15

Spacebase DF-9, the tactical strategy game that hit Early Access back in October last year, is to have its development ceased. The Double Fine-helmed space-faring strategy title will be released as a final version 1.0 on Steam, but the hundreds of features yet to be implemented will no longer be worked on, with the team ceasing all development once it goes live.

Double Fine had previously intimated that there was still a long way to go on Spacebase DF-9’s development, publishing a list with literally hundreds of additions it was hoping to add in future updates. Despite this Double Fine is billing the 1.0 build as a final release, adding in a few final tweaks to help with “the complete experience you’d expect of a non-Early Access game,” including a tutorial mode and a goals system to give players objectives.
