Gods Will Be Watching Review : The Gods Are Cruel

Written by Chris Barraclough on 23 August 2014 at 15:00

Gods Will Be Watching is one of the best games I’ve played this year, and also one of the worst. It’s one of the best thanks to its original concept, which sees you steering the hapless Sgt. Burden and his colleagues through a variety of survival scenarios, in a turn-based manner.

It’s one of the worst because of its unpredictable nature and trial-and-error gameplay, which sees you replaying each scenario over and over, until you either scream and headbutt your monitor, or go completely insane and hurl yourself in front of the number 17 bus. [More]

Written by Jon Sutton on 23 August 2014 at 11:00

It’s looking increasingly likely that a technology preview version of Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 9, codenamed Threshold, will be coming as a freely available download this September.

While the full launch of Windows 9 is pencilled in for a Q2 2015 release, all indications point to Microsoft unveiling Windows 9 at preview event next month. In an effort to appease the hardcore subset of Windows users, Microsoft won’t just be making it available to developers but to the public to, in order to demonstrate why it’s such a vital upgrade from the poorly received Windows 8.

Destiny’s console release is now just two weeks away, and to celebrate the game’s launch Activision has released a brand spanking new launch trailer for the game.

Of course, it’s Bungie and Activision, so they know how to put together a great trailer, and this one has everything you’d hope for; operatic space soundtrack, sense of grand intragalactic adventure, and a whole bunch of explosions… [More]

Haswell-E Processors Will Have Varied PCI-E Lanes, i7-5820K Will Only Access 28

Written by Katie Allen on 22 August 2014 at 17:00

Thanks to some leaked manuals for Gigabyte’s X99 motherboards, it looks like the upcoming Intel Core i7-5820K will be able to address fewer PCI-E lanes than other, more powerful i7-5000 series CPUs.

According to the leaks, the Haswell-E CPUs will have a variety of different PCI-Express lanes. So whilst more expensive models like the i7-5930K will be able to address 40 lanes, the 5820K - the cheapest card in the line - will only access 28 lanes. [More]

GamersGoMakers Review : Development Hell

Written by Paulo Proenca on 22 August 2014 at 15:30

As a fan of the previously released Game Dev Tycoon, I'll admit I was pretty excited to see Gnifrebel Games' GamersGoMakers (GGM) launch. The game is a new attempt at putting you in charge of the very complex gaming market, and given my positive experience with Game Dev Tycoon I decided to try my hand at this new title.

Unfortunately, things didn't start very well. As soon as I started the game, my first issue was the visual style. It's in every way similar to Game Dev Tycoon (GDT), but this similarity is merely surface deep. The clean pretty aesthetic hides what is, in fact, a clumsy interface full of interactions that add nothing new to the experience, as they can be accessed via the main menu and end up contributing to an overall illusion of features.

NBA 2K15 System Requirements

Written by Jon Sutton on 22 August 2014 at 14:15

Like a lot of sports franchises on PC, 2K's NBA series has taken a bit of time to make the leap to its next-generation graphics engine. While PlayStation 4 and Xbox One owners were treated to the stunning new engine last year, it's at last made its way to us for NBA 2K15. This means NBA 2K15 will be the best looking basketball game in existence on PC, sporting unparalleled levels of detail and ultra realistic animation to take shooting hoops to the next level.

2K announced last week that from here on out the PC versions of NBA 2K15 and beyond are going to match the console versions feature for feature. Every mode and every detail will be present on PC. For the first time ever the EuroLeague teams have been included, among a host of gameplay and graphical improvements. To find out whether your PC's going to pull a flop or a slam-dunk though, read on to check out the NBA 2K15 system requirements. [More]
