Metro Redux Official System Requirements

Written by Katie Allen on 27 July 2014 at 17:00

Metro Redux is the reskinned release of both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light coming on 29th August this year, with better graphics, improved AI, and a number of other next-gen tweaks, including a complete graphical overhaul over of 2010's Metro 2033.

Thus far the developers had only provided us with provisional system requirements. However, over night, these have been updated to the finalised system specs, so we can see whether the work on the previous Metro games includes improvements to the PC optimisation... [More]

Games of the Month - July 2014

Written by Jon Sutton on 27 July 2014 at 15:00

July has felt like an interminably slow month for gaming releases, as the AAA titles dried up and the indies bizarrely scarpered at what could be an opportune time to launch. It wasn’t until we took a step back and looked at some of the titles hitting stores this month that we realised what a cracking line up we’ve had.

Covering everything from a truly genre-defining RPG to a return to form for WW2 shooters, we take a run down of the best games we’ve been playing in July across all platforms... [More]

Battlefield Hardline Creative Director Discusses Delay And Single-Player Plot

Written by Katie Allen on 27 July 2014 at 13:00

Information about Battlefield: Hardline’s single player campaign came out at San Diego Comic Con this week, and it seems as if the story revolved around a wronged cop named Nick, who has to battle to clear his name after a failed meth bust results in him being framed for a crime he did not commit.

Ian Milham, Hardline’s creative director, went into details about the game’s plot, as well as discussing the delay of Battlefield: Hardline until 2015… [More]

Unreal Tournament Dev Team Show Off First Map Concept In New Video

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 July 2014 at 11:00

The Unreal Tournament dev team has put together the first concept map for the upcoming, collaboratively developed Unreal Tournament, It’s the first environment we’ve seen, and according to the developers, it’s a definite concept rather than a solid map design for the game itself.

Chris Perna, the game’s Art Director, uses the latest development video to show off and take a tour around the map, which, he says, is more an experimentation with art, as it hasn’t been tested with actual gameplay. Still, it’s an interesting insight into the game’s aesthetic. [More]

The Eight Best Sequels Of All Time

Written by Jon Sutton on 26 July 2014 at 16:58

Few forms of entertainment are as littered with sequels as the videogame. In a world where creating a huge new franchise can cost upwards of a half a billion dollars, it’s perhaps a little understandable that most publishers aren’t too keen on taking big risks.

You need only cast your eye over the lunacy of Final Fantasy XV (!?) and the nineteen Call of Duty games created so far to understand that publishers like the familiar. Watch Dogs and Destiny are the oddities, not the norm, and in general the world looks forward to a much-loved franchise rather than an unknown nobody. Sequels aren’t all bad though, and some are without doubt the best games in the world, so we thought we’d take a look at what we believe are some of the most improved sequels ever… [More]
