The Witcher III Preview : Exclusive The Witcher III Interview With CD Projekt RED Senior Art Producer

Written by Katie Allen on 01 August 2014 at 17:15

There's a lot of amazing games due for release during the next six months, but you'd be hard-pressed to find one that people are more excited about than The Witcher 3. Last month we had the chance to discuss some of the developments and design choices with The Witcher 3's Senior Art Producer Michal Krzeminski.

During our catch up with Michal we covered what has changed in the franchise since The Witcher 2, how the creative process behind The Witcher games work, and how it felt to be name-dropped by Barack Obama. So lets take a look at how our Witcher 3 CD Projekt Red interview went down.  [More]

What Are You Playing This Weekend - August 2014

Written by Jon Sutton on 01 August 2014 at 16:31

Time is running out. The great deluge of games is coming our way in a matter of months. In centuries to come they’ll be sitting around campfires retelling the legends of Q3 2014. Of the hideous sums of money that were splurged on gaming relics.

Make no mistake - the end of this year will be beautiful, but until then we need to get busy ploughing through all them games we didn’t get round to, or booting up an old classic and reliving the memories. Summer drought be damned, there’s lot of gaming goodness to be getting on with... [More]

AMD Officially Launches A10-7800, A8-7600 and A6-7400K APUs

Written by Shaheryar on 01 August 2014 at 15:00

AMD has launched its latest line of APUs series based on the Kaveri architecture, six months after review samples were sent out. Though it had already announced the A10-7800 and the A8-7600, the A6-7400K has been announced and all APUs have been released simultaneously. AMD's reasoning for this was due to the low 65W TDP, but also because all three contain configurable total power draws that can drop to as little as 45W by reducing their clock speeds.

Kaveri is the 3rd generation of AMD APU technology based on the Steamroller architecture. This architecture will focus on enhancing IPC (instruction per cycle) by up to 25 %. Each module will have 2 threads (separate) with their own parallel instruction decoder. This also means the Steamroller die has a bigger footprint than both the Bulldozer and Piledriver dies. [More]

Assassins Creed Rogue Outed By Retailer As Coming To Previous-Gen Systems

Written by Jon Sutton on 01 August 2014 at 13:45

Swiss games retailer World of Games may have inadvertently leaked the official title of previous-generation Assassin’s Creed title, in the works over at Ubisoft. Previously known as Assassin’s Creed: Comet, the new listing suggests it will be known as Assassin’s Creed: Rogue, tying in nicely with a gamescom reveal at Cologne in a fortnight’s time.

Of course these things need taking with a pinch of salt but, having seen hide nor hair of it since leaking earlier this year, we’d expect retailers to be aware of its existence as they’re ordering in stock for the holiday season. The listing only provides details of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions, with no word of a PC release just yet… [More]

Latest Bioware Shadow Realms Spark Trailer Teases Gamescom Reveal This Month

Written by Neil Soutter on 01 August 2014 at 12:35

BioWare is at it again this week, once more teasing the mysterious new game in works, rumoured to be named Shadow Realms. The latest teaser, dubbed Spark, is once again live action footage, this time showing a man getting repeated phone calls from an unknown number before things get a bit pyrotechnic, while a hooded figure stands menacingly outside the window.

The tagline at the end reads “Do you know they are watching?”, and links to the teaser site youve-been-chosen.com. It’s looking like an entirely new title in development over at BioWare HQ, but we won’t have long to wait to find out, with the game being fully revealed at gamescom on August 13th. [More]

F1 2014 System Requirements

Written by Katie Allen on 01 August 2014 at 11:03

Codemasters have always been great when it comes to creating massively scalable and optimized games, allowing even those of us with more modest rigs to enjoy some good old fashioned racing sims. The developer has just released the official requirements for upcoming Formula 1 title F1 2014, which is slated for launch this October.

With F1 2014 slated for release on PC and next gen, we figured we probably wouldn't have excessively steep minimum requirements to deal with if the game will also be running on last-gen console hardware. With that in mind, we took a look at the F1 2014 system requirements to see if they would follow in the footsteps of the likes of Grid: Autosport by being virtually accessible to all. [More]

Call Of Duty: Ghosts Nemesis DLC Trailer Showcases Next Weeks Final DLC

Written by Stuart Thomas on 01 August 2014 at 10:15

Activision has released a trailer for its final piece of downloadable content for Call of Duty: Ghosts, dubbed Nemesis. The fourth expansion once again comes packing four new multiplayer maps and the final part of the alien-blasting Extinction co-op campaign.

All four of the competitive maps are being described as on the smaller side, designed specifically for Call of Duty;s distinctive fast-paced gunplay. This should some way to easing the complaints many have had with the maps so far, which have often been large with disparate spawn points. [More]

Ancient Elven Wraith Abilities Shown Off In New Shadow Of Mordor Trailer

Written by Jon Sutton on 31 July 2014 at 17:30

Warner Bros has released a rather awesome new trailer for Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, demonstrating Talion’s powerful Wraith abilities. This selection of skills allows the vengeful ranger to demolish the orc leaders through a number of underhand means, including turning them against one another or controlling their minds.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor delivers a dynamic gameplay world in which the ranger Talion must plot and kill his way to the top of the food chain in order to gain an audience with Sauron himself. A unique Nemesis System allows enemy personalities to evolve based on your actions, something which Talion can take advantage of with his powerful Wraith abilities. [More]

Oddworld: Abes Oddysee New n Tasty Review : Its An Odd World After All

Written by Jon Sutton on 31 July 2014 at 16:16

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is such a rare beast in today’s age of remasters, reboots, and HD-ified wallet gouging remakes. It’s actually needed and it actually works. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was an aging game in dire need of a reworking, a reworking that could bring it to a whole new generation of fans. Developer Just Add Water has really gone back to the drawing board here, rebuilding Oddworld from the ground up.
