How to Delete Your Old Windows.old Installation Folder In Windows 10

Written by Joffy S on 29 July 2015 at 17:30

When you upgrade to Windows 10, Microsoft tries to make things as painless as possible for you. It's the reason why your old Windows installation is kept nice and safe in its own folder when you upgrade to Windows 10. That's great if you want access to your old stuff, and even better if you want to downgrade.

If you're limited for space however, you're going to want to get rid of it. If you are sure you want to keep Windows 10 and you have no intention of rolling back, then you can delete your old Windows installation in order to make room on your storage drive. This unused Windows file can be upwards of 15GB, which can take up a significant chunk on a Solid State Drive. [More]

Rainbow Six Siege Terrohunt Trailer Shows Us The Art Of Defenestration

Written by Neil Soutter on 29 July 2015 at 16:45

One of the most exciting things to come out of Ubisoft's press conference was the news that terrorist hunt would be returning to Rainbow Six Siege. Or Terrohunt as Ubisoft adamantly puts it. One of the most popular modes from previous Rainbow Six games like Vegas and Vegas 2, Terrorist Hunt features a squad of cooperative playing working together to take down an army of AI enemy terrorists.

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for the mode, showing us just how this mode will work. It's also accompanied by the rather spurious claim that it's an interactive trailer. The only thing you'll be doing is clicking occasionally to learn a bit more about various gameplay aspects. Don't let that detract from the fun of watching things blowing up though.  [More]

So Windows 10 is the new hotness. You’ve gone and grabbed it at the first opportunity, clicking through the installation process like a person possessed.

If you’re like me and you’re just sat around twiddling your thumbs, waiting for Microsoft to notify you on how to install Windows 10, there is an answer. Microsoft has a workaround if you’re just too damned impatient, and why wouldn’t you be after waiting close to a year for this upgrade?

The first thing you’re going to want to do is head on over to Microsoft’s official Windows 10 download page. This lets you bypass Microsoft’s wave-based invitation system entirely. On here you’ll find the option for two different versions of Windows 10 - the 32-bit and the 64-bit editions. [More]

Fallout 4 Will Not Come With Mod Support At Launch

Written by Neil Soutter on 29 July 2015 at 10:56

Bethesda and mods are a match made in heaven. Or hell if they brave another attempt at charging for them. It’s one of the reasons we’re anticipating Fallout 4 so much. Not only are we getting this vast, unexplored world, but we can also layer it with new adventures and creations. Unfortunately, however, Bethesda has confirmed Fallout 4 will not have modding tools at launch.

Now don’t panic. They are coming eventually. Bethesda’s Pete Hines revealed as much during a recent interview. He admitted the creation kit is coming, but the focus right now is on making Fallout 4 the best game it can possibly be. [More]

Final Fantasy Type-0 HD System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 28 July 2015 at 16:30

Final Fantasy's march onto PC continues apace with the news that Final Fantasy Type-0 HD will be coming to Steam on August 14th. Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is a spruced up remake of the PSP original, and one that's been given a further lick of paint with PC exclusive graphics features and enhancements. Bizarrely, pre-ordering yourself a copy will net you a DOTA 2 bonus in the shape of a class zero Moogle ward. Perhaps most tragically of all, you'll also get an 'exclusive loading screen'. Yippee.

Anyway, enough of that, because Final Fantasy Type-0 HD is actually a pretty fine spin-off. It centres on a group of students from an elite military academy, known as Class Zero. They're tasked with fending off the neighbouring Empire, through action-based combat. To see whether you're rig is ready for its final fantasy, check out the official Final Fantasy Type-0 HD system requirements.  [More]
