Platinum Is Working OnTeenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants In Manhattan

Written by Stuart Thomas on 01 December 2015 at 15:20

Fresh from their success with Transformers: Devastation, it looks as if Platinum Games is going to follow this up with a videogame adaptation of everyone's favourite - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The project, known as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, was revealed by a Brazilian rating board before the Australian Classification Board confirmed it would be Platinum Games taking the reins.

The beat-em-up experts at Platinum will be working on what is reportedly an adaptation of the original cartoons, rather than that god awful movie from last year. They’ve got some serious pedigree in the genre, creating the likes of Bayonetta, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and The Wonderful 101. [More]

The Pinnacle Of V Mod Makes GTA 5 Look Better Than It Ever Has

Written by Neil Soutter on 01 December 2015 at 14:00

Grand Theft Auto V’s not without its fair share of mods by this stage, but there aren’t all that many that genuinely make it visually better. Sure, there’s the usual glut of filters and shader tweaks to alter how it looks, but nothing that truly elevates it to a new a level like we saw achieved with GTA IV. That is, until now, with The Pinnacle of V - World Enhancement Project.

Just about everything in GTA 5 is being given a tweak here, from the visuals and textures right down to the vehicle handling, realistic population levels, destructibility of the environments and more. There’s no doubting it’s an impressive package, but from the beta video it looks like it comes with a matching performance hit. [More]

AMD Radeon GPU Just Cause 3 Graphics Artifacts Glitch Bug Fix

Written by Joffy S on 01 December 2015 at 12:45

Just Cause 3 is pretty great, when it works. But like any huge game launch, it’s not without its fair share of teething problems. One of the biggest issues facing AMD owners is incompatibility with the Radeon Software Crimson driver, released last week.

Plenty of AMD gamers have been experiencing serious audio and visual glitches, causing the entire world to disappear and polygonal holes to appear in the ground, ready to swallow up Rico Rodriguez who.e. It's rendered Just Cause 3 totally unplayable. Which is never good, when you’re trying to save the world. Luckily, there's a temporary fix until Avalanche gets Just Cause 3 patched up.  [More]

Battle Of Jakku Maps Launch Today For Star Wars Battlefront With Chaotic Launch Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 01 December 2015 at 11:30

With just over two weeks to go until The Force Awakens arrives, hype levels are hitting warp speed. DICE is capitalising on this with the launch of some tie-in maps for Star Wars: Battlefront, available free today for those who pre-ordered the base game. The rest of us with a bit a patience will have to wait until December 8th to unleash blaster hell.

EA and DICE have pushed out a dramatic launch trailer for the DLC, depicting the magnificent Battle of Jakku, which takes places 29 years before the events of the upcoming movie. It brings with it a pair of new maps set on the rocky planet; one large scale and the other more intimate. The planet is going to be playable across all modes, but it also introduces the new Turning Point 40 player mode. [More]

Do Not Even Try Playing Just Cause 3 With 4GB RAM - GTX 750 Ti Benchmarks

Written by Joffy S on 01 December 2015 at 10:00

Like the majority of AAA blockbusters arriving these days, Just Cause 3 has some fairly eye-popping system requirements. No doubt you’ve seen them by now, but if you haven’t then you can read all about them here on GD. They’re definitely near the upper end of the hardware scale, but we’re used to games demanding more on the back of the box than they do in practice.

With that in mind, we thought it best to come right in at the low end and see how the diminutive GeForce GTX 750 Ti performs, assisted by a doddery old AMD FX-4100 CPU, and just 4GB memory. In theory, if Avalanche has got its sums right, this rig shouldn’t be able to run Just Cause 3 at all. [More]

Life Is Feudal Review : Life Is Divisive

Written by Felix Nova on 30 November 2015 at 16:30

Life is Feudal: Your Own (LiF) is practically a community project. A bunch of people need to come together to make their way in a virtual world. You start with a handful of food and some rags to cover up your modesty. From there you must forage across the lands to build your own tools that will help you interact with the world further. By doing this you get more skilled and can then make better equipment and buildings. You know, the survival gaming staples.


Just Cause 3 Launch Trailer Is Full Of Things That Make You Go Boom

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 November 2015 at 15:00

If you had any doubts about just what Just Cause 3 is, the launch trailer should set you straight. I’ll give you a little hint. Explosions. AND EXPLOSIONS. With a sprinkling of explosions on top. Avalanche Studios has been running a competition for the Just Cause 3 trailer you see, asking the fans to make trailers so they can put their feet up and smirk at your Adobe Premiere skills.

They’ve viewed all the entries and they’ve chosen their winner - CoolTwinSkittles. Obviously they were blown away by watching Rico Rodriguez blowing everything away. It turns out if you want to get on Avalanche’s good side you just have to do the obvious thing - send them explosions. [More]

Sony Has Unlocked Additional Seventh PS4 CPU Core For Gaming

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 November 2015 at 14:00

Sony has taken a leaf out of Microsoft’s book and pushed out a stealth update for the PlayStation 4 SDK (Software Development Kit), allowing developers access to the seventh of its eight CPU cores. Microsoft did the same last year, albeit a lot louder, and it provided a pretty significant boost to Xbox One’s performance.

The update from Sony borrows one of the CPU cores from the PlayStation 4's operating system tasks and allows it to be used for gaming. In order to make use of the extra core it needs to be coded into a game on an individual basis. That means existing games won’t be able to make use of seven cores, unless the developers choose to update them via a patch. [More]

Reports Suggest Just Cause 3 Is Suffering Serious Performance Issues On Console

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 November 2015 at 12:45

Both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of Just Cause 3 are reportedly suffering some horrendous performance issues. Those who have managed to snag copies of the game early are reporting load times of almost 15 minutes on Xbox One, which is absolutely staggering, and frame rate drops as low as 17 FPS on both platforms.

The console editions of Just Cause 3 looks to suffer from some severe memory leak issues, with loading times increasing the longer you play according to reports. It kind of harks back to the PS3 launch of Skyrim, with a wide-ranging list of performance problems hampering the two platforms. [More]
