The Best Cities Skylines Mods So Far

Written by Joffy S on 28 March 2015 at 16:00

It’s been a fortnight now since Cities: Skylines built a concrete highway straight to our hearts. The ensuing days have predictably been filled with an incredible amount of mod support for the half million seller. More than 22,000 mods have already been created, at a rate of over 1000 every day.

The mind boggles at all of the treats that have been created, and now we take the time to highlight some of the best Cities: Skylines mods available today. From tsunami creators and an accurate recreation of Grand Theft Auto V’s Los Santos, to a full-blown flight-sim mod; there's something for everyone. [More]

Up For Debate - Is It Worth Chasing 4K Resolution

Written by Joffy S on 28 March 2015 at 14:00

Everywhere you look the term 4K is being thrown around with gleeful abandon. You can’t go near one of the litany of online PC hardware stores without getting a glimpse at these ultra high-definition beasts.

In truth though 4K monitors are elusive; the gaming equivalent of a snow leopard. How many of us have seen a 4K monitor in action? How many know someone who owns one? Not many I’d hazard a guess, and a quick look at GD members reveals less than 0.1% are kitted out with 4K monitors. [More]

Prepare For Bucketloads Of Claret In The Total War: Attila - Blood And Burning DLC

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 March 2015 at 12:00

I have to admit I wasn’t fully prepared for the bloodbath that would ensue for the Total War: Attila - Blood & Burning DLC trailer, but it turns out The Creative Assembly has been remarkably true to its word. Unleashing the full horror of the Hun’s nomadic apocalypse, the Blood and Burning DLC brings in some truly brutal blood effects for the most ardent war mongerers.

Having inwardly criticised Creative Assembly for releasing blood DLC for Rome II a couple of years back, I’m starting to see why it’s not included with the base game. Decapitations, limb-lops, head-impaling, disembowelment and more are the order of the day, with the Blood & burning DLC sure to garner a mature rating. [More]

Fallout 3 Speedrunner Beats Bethesdas 50 Hour RPG In Less Than 19 Minutes

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 March 2015 at 10:00

I’ve got a soft spot for speedruns and this latest effort is one of the best yet. I’ve yet to even see the final credits of Fallout 3 let alone attempt it at breackneck speed, but speedrunner Rydercc33 has conquered Bethesda’s humongous RPG in a frankly ridiculous 18 minutes and 53 seconds.

Around that time I was still busy holding onto people’s ankles while dribbling into a bib, or failing by GOAT test, let alone cruising through the wasteland, making a beeline for Fallout 3’s ending. If you’ve yet to finish Fallout 3 and you’re bothered by a few spoilers then it goes without saying, Ryderc33 skips the majority of the content but plenty is certainly spoiled. [More]

What Are You Playing This Weekend - April 2015 Edition

Written by Joffy S on 27 March 2015 at 17:00

All told March has been a pretty sublime month for gamers. The underdog has triumphed with both Cities: Skylines and the incredible Pillars of Eternity blowing away most who play them, with the latter scooping up a perfect 10/10. This has been backed up by tricksy Metroidvania platformer Ori and the Blind Forest, PlayStation 4 getting its first must-buy with Bloodborne, and Resident Evil: Revelations 2 proving there’s life in the old zombified dog yet. Oh, and Battlefield Hardline happened, and so did the sneaky, stabby, Assassin’s Creed Rogue.

In short there’s absolutely stacks to be getting on with, and that’s without taking into account Grand Theft Auto V will be arriving in just 18 days. As the wait for Rockstar’s finest continues, we want to know what gaming greats you’re busying yourself with this weekend. [More]

Written by Felix Nova on 27 March 2015 at 15:30

You can count on a few fingers the number of games that have received a perfect 10/10 here on Game Debate. Pillars of Eternity is now part of the gaming elite, delivering one of the greatest role-playing games we've ever had the good fortune to play.

Pillars Of Eternity GeForce GTX 650 Benchmarks And Comparison Screens

Written by Joffy S on 27 March 2015 at 14:51

Obsidian's mighty impressive Kickstarter-funded RPG behemoth is upon us, delivering one of the finest role-playing experiences of the past decade. Suffice to say, Pillars of Eternity is a bit a special. Based on the old Infinity Engine games of yesteryear such as Baldur's gate and Icewind Dale, Pillars of Eternity is isometric bliss.

The hand-crafted environments are a sight to look at but Pillars of Eternity's old-school roots bestow it with some mercifully low system requirements. Still, we thought we'd roll out the GeForce GTX 650 to see how it performs, as well as have a looksee at how Pillars of Eternity will look at a variety of graphics settings. The GTX 650 is backed up by an AMD FX-4100 quad-core processor and 4GB RAM, so read to see how it fares in the Pillars of Eternity benchmarks.  [More]

Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 27 March 2015 at 12:45

Clearly not wanting to be left out in the shade by the ridiculous number of remasters and definitive editions hitting the current-gen consoles, Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin will be hitting PC next week. Essentially a game of the year edition bundling together Dark Souls II with its season pass content, the headline feature for returning players is the engine upgrade from DirectX 9 to DirectX 11. 

All sorts of flashy new features, graphics, sound and performance upgrades are yours if you splash out for it on PC. By now we're used to upgrades like this coming courtesy of a free patch, but current Dark Souls 2 owners do at least get 20 bucks knocked off the asking price if they double dip. Before you get busy playing the definitive version of Dark Souls 2, looking the best it has ever looked, you'd best check out the official Dark Souls 2: Scholar of the First Sin system requirements.

Nvidia Preparing GeForce GTX 980 Ti For Summer Release

Written by Joffy S on 27 March 2015 at 11:30

Nvidia is prepping a GeForce GTX 980 Ti for launch this summer, according to the latest reports. The GeForce GTX 980 Ti will be Nvidia’s fastest dedicated gaming graphics card, utilising the same GM200 “Big Maxwell” GPU used in its recently released GeForce GTX Titan X.

It was predicted Nvidia would be taking the GM200 GPU from the Titan X with a number of CUDA cores disabled, but it now appears as if the GeForce GTX 980 Ti will be the full monty, and then some. The reports indicate the GTX 980 Ti will have the full complement of 3072 CUDA cores as that of its bigger brother, alongside a 10% boost to the stock clock speed and a halving of the 12GB GDDR5 VRAM down to 6GB.
