Telltale Games Dig Up Debut Minecraft: Story Mode Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 06 July 2015 at 10:15

Everyone’s favourite mining convention took place this weekend. No, not the proper mining conventions selling you deadly pickaxes and canaries, but the Minecraft fan get together. Ok, so there was probably plenty of foam pickaxes. It’s the first MineCon to have the shadow of Microsoft’s corporate dollars looming over it, and it was the moment Telltale finally unearthed actual footage of its episodic adventure series - Minecraft: Story Mode.

Telltale’s Minecraft: Story Mode is basically the antithesis of all things Minecraft, delivering a narrative-driven spin-off to the open-ended multiplayer sandbox. A group of adventurers, comprising a Warrior, Griefer, Architect and Redstone Engineer, are busy celebrating a recently slain Ender Dragon when a Creeper invasion signals an impending catastrophe. Together they must locate The Order of the Stone and save the world. [More]

Up For Debate - PC Building Component Checklist And Upgrade Priorities

Written by Joffy S on 05 July 2015 at 18:00

Building or buying your own PC is pretty much the zenith of PC gaming. We all love that guilty moment we put our money where our mouth is and splash out on a build. The how and why we get there is different for everybody though, and that's why have hundreds of thousands of different PC build configurations represented here on GD.

Everyone has different priorities, and most of us have limited cash. When we build our PCs we're willing to spend more on certain components than others, depending upon which is the most important to us. Here we'll not only be running down a complete checklist of all the PC components you'll be needing in a built, but we'll also have a run-down of the order of importance, from myself and Felix.

AAA Indie Series: Indie Studios Push PC Gaming And Hardware Forward

Written by Felix Nova on 05 July 2015 at 16:00

Indie games set our gaming benchmark. AAA have to show that they are staying ahead. To say that indie gaming has undergone something of a revolution would be an understatement; like suggesting Half-Life 2’s ‘alright’, or a GTX Titan X is ‘decent’. Indie gaming has blasted off into the stratosphere, and it says it all when a game like Minecraft has outsold every Battlefield title combined.

The tables are turning, indie developers across the world are getting access to powerful game dev tools, creating lovingly designed 3D worlds, which put many AAA studios to shame. PC hardware is getting pushed more than ever before. Meteor Pixel’s Bushido: Legend of the Samurai is at the forefront of this, delivering stunning feudal warfare in beautiful, handcrafted environments. Within this series we’ll be looking at how a tiny studio is achieving great things, learning first-hand how anybody with the right know-how can begin making stunning indie games. [More]

Just Cause 3 What We Know Summary And System Requirements

Written by Felix Nova on 05 July 2015 at 14:00

The Just Cause series is almost an off shoot from one of the biggest titles around. GTAs mastery at enabling the player to do whatever you want, in a huge sandbox game pushed it beyond all competition. To keep keeping it gritty it added layers of realism. While that direction was appealing for the GTA franchise, this meant there was massive scope for some other games, Saints Row and Just Cause, to go totally nuts.

Just Cause 3 offers the equivalent of all the most insane/ludicrous stunts from every James Bond film and making them possible for a player to do the same, while tearing it around a Dictator owned tropical island. [More]

The Caped Crusadeher - Batman: Arkham Knight Batgirl DLC Dated

Written by Neil Soutter on 05 July 2015 at 12:00

The PC port might still resemble the bowels of Gotham City itself, but WB Games is already pushing ahead with its downloadable content plans for Batman: Arkham Knight. The Batgirl: A Matter of Family expansion is a story-based DLC coming this month.

If you’ve forked out for the alarmingly expensive Batman: Arkham Knight season pass, you’ll be able to get your mitts of Batgirl’s story add-on on July 14th, while the rest of us will have to wait until July 21st. [More]

Act Of Aggression Strikes Worldwide On September 2nd

Written by Neil Soutter on 05 July 2015 at 10:00

Focus Home Interactive has announced that Eugen Systems' upcoming RTS, Act of Aggression, will be exploding onto PC come September 2nd. Pre-orders for the game have now gone live, and players getting in there early will net themselves a 15% discount and access to Act of Aggression’s multiplayer beta. This is set to begin around mid-July.

You may recognise Eugen Systems’ name. These are the folks behind the hard-as-nails Wargame series of strategy titles. Act of Aggression differs from this template, however, returning to the base-building roots of the golden age of real-time strategy. The Cartel, Chimera and the US Army all facing off against one another in a three-way fight, as the global superpowers battle for control over supply lines and resources. [More]

No Mans Sky What We Know Summary And System Requirements

Written by Felix Nova on 04 July 2015 at 17:00

No Man's Sky is a beautiful looking sci fi affair. Every time we see another little bit of it our imaginations jump into overdrive, hungrily looking towards its eventual release. It is under development by a British Studio called Hello Games.

No Man's Sky is a lot of things and some have even referred to it as loosely from Minecraft in space. Where you make your own destiny, with no user manual, leaving you to discover your own way through the depths of its crafting and exploration. No Man's Sky is an open-world, space game that lets the player visit planets the size of actual planets and craft their own environments and gameplay experience. But with each video we see, it's hard to really know what it is that the game will be offering, beyond something very beautiful. So let's take a look at what we do know about No Man's Sky. [More]
