What is Star Citizen - Could It Change PC Hardware Requirements and Gamer Expectations

Written by Felix Nova on 20 September 2014 at 16:00

No matter how you look at it, Star Citizen is destined to have a huge impact on the PC gaming landscape. In a time when traditional publisher-backed game development takes the occasional backseat to crowd funded independents, the dev team over at Roberts Space Industries turned up on Kickstarter in 2012 and delivered their gaming vision pitch perfect.

And at the core of the pitch was, a PC-only space opera where the more funding it achieved the more incredible the game would become. Millions of dollars of unprecedented backing flooded in to show everyone that this MMO space simulator was something that has been missing from our collective lives. And as crowd funding records were broken by the sheer volume of PC gamers clamouring for a piece of this conceptual juggernaut, the vision continued to expand in line with that funding. [More]

Planetary Annihilation Review : All We Are Is Dust In The Wind

Written by Stuart Thomas on 20 September 2014 at 14:00

You know that movie where the villain challenges James Bond to play a weird proto-RTS on his weird seventies-punk brass and wood games console? Where they're slinging nuclear missiles at each other in a bizarre wireframe war simulator that was occasionally reminiscent of a cross between Populous and Tempest?

Did you ever want to play that dorky game (without the electric shock bit, of course)? Going mano a mano with a sharp-suited villain with only your wits and an armload of thermonuclear devices to your name? Well, here it is. [More]

Road Tripping In TGS 2014 Final Fantasy XV Gameplay Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 20 September 2014 at 12:00

It’s been going Final Fantasy crazy throughout this week, and in the rush of announcements coming out of Tokyo Game Show 2014 Square Enix revealed a brand new trailer for the eagerly anticipated Final Fantasy XV.

It’s the first we’ve seen of Square Enix’s sequel since way back at E3 2013, and the mix of gameplay and cutscenes looks a world apart from traditional Final Fantasy, taking a giant leap towards action-RPG mechanics and fast-paced gameplay. The two-and-a-half minute video shows four characters taking a road trip in a convertible, before hopping out the car to do battle with giant mythical creatures. [More]

Focus Got A Brand New Farming Simulator And Theyll Give It To Thee

Written by Jon Sutton on 20 September 2014 at 10:00

 After much umming and ahhing I decided writing a news article on Farming Simulator 2015 entirely to the tune of Combine Harvester probably wasn’t the best use of my time, but at least now you know the thought was there.

Focus Interactive is back once again, locked and loaded with haybales, flail mowers, backhoe loaders, and red diesel aplenty in Farming Simulator 2015. Arriving late next month, the next iteration of the multi-million selling Farming Simulator series has a brand new graphics and physics engine, new visual effects, an easier-to-use interface, new vehicles and more. Ladies and gentlemen, start your electric hoes. [More]

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]
