Majestic Nights Review : Meh World Order

Written by Stuart Thomas on 22 November 2014 at 14:00

Lizard-alien hybrids communicate with the government directly through their interpreter, Elvis Presley, from a secret base on a crashed UFO deep beneath Denver Airport. They sold the CIA the secret of using LSD to create an army of psychic super-soldiers, and now the US intelligence agencies foment minor wars worldwide to test out the effectiveness of these troops. Meanwhile, ex-Nazis who escaped Germany after the war live in pyramids on the moon where they control the World Bank by causing tiny fluctuations in the stock market which ripple through the global economy.

All of which is super-cool fodder for the imagination. So long as you don't take conspiracy theory too seriously, it's fantastic fodder for the world of videogames. Mysterious bad guys, secrets to uncover, mysteries to solve... it's a wonder, really, that we don't see more games that use global conspiracy as their theme. Of course, the smash hit in the genre will remain Deus Ex, just as Robert Anton Wilson's terrifically weird Illuminatus remains the ultimate in conspiracy literature (whatever Dan Brown might think).  [More]

MMOFPS Mech Battler Project HON Announced By NCSoft

Written by Neil Soutter on 22 November 2014 at 10:00

City of Heroes and WildStar producer NCSoft has revealed its latest title, a futuristic mech battling title doing what 80-foot robots do best - knocking seven shades of crap out of one another. Project HON, standing for Humanoid robot On Neuro-control, was unveiled at G-Star 2014 in Korea, and looks to be an MMOFPS coming to PC next year, making use of Epic’s Unreal Engine 4.

It’s difficult to tell exactly what Project HON entails, but it definitely looks inspired by the likes of Armored Core, featuring extremely mobile mechs with some fairly insane weapon loadouts, including giant grappling hooks destined to put a dent in many a mech. It looks like it can be sent out to grab other mechs, hurling them back in for a pummeling from your iron fist. [More]

GD Machine 2014 Benchmark Far Cry 4 GTX 750 Ti i5 4670K

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 November 2014 at 17:12

Roll up, roll up! It's the next in the seemingly never-ending line-up of Ubisoft releases hitting over this three-week period. Far Cry 4's out and it's caused quite a stir, crash-landing amid the PC gaming community before razing everything in sight down with a handily placed flamethrower.

It's safe to say Far Cry fans are loving it, and what's not to love about riding an elephant armed with an RPG? You that is, not the elephant, they probably haven't got the dexterity for it, even if some of them do paint. We put Far Cry 4 through its paces already on the GeForce GTX 670, but now it's the turn of the GD Machine 2014. Locked and loaded with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB, 8GB RAM and an Intel i5-4670K, it's primed and ready to (hopefully) give Far Cry 4 a roasting in some benchmarks.  [More]

Hacker Group Claims To Have Raided Millions Of PSN, Origin, 2K And Windows Live Logins

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 November 2014 at 15:15

A hacker collective going by the name DerpTrolling, who were also responsible for the World of Warcraft DDOS attacks on Blizzard MMORPG over the weekend, has claimed that it has allegedly stolen the login details for millions of accounts across gaming networks such as Origin, PlayStation Network, 2K Games and Windows Live.

If true then the login and password credentials have been hijacked from millions upon millions of individuals, with the hacking group claiming that it's acting in the interest of consumers in an effort to highlight the need for companies to increase security in order to protect such crucial information. It then proceeded to put up a sample of thousands of usernames and passwords via Pastebin, which doesn’t seem to be benefitting any of the thousands of consumers on that list too much. [More]

Valve Gets Heavy With Developers And Tightens Steam Early Access Rules

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 November 2014 at 12:45

It’s no secret by now that the Early Access system on Steam is a bit of mess. For every bona fide hit creeping its way through there seems to be dozens more seemingly never going to see a final release - I’m looking at you Stomping Land.

Valve’s now taking some some additional action to begin regulating Steam Early Access, laying out a bunch of new guidelines and rules for developers who want to get onto its platform and begin using the service. Some gamers have understandably been stung by some of the offers on Early Access, and this latest update from Valve suggest it knows this is a problem and is tackling it with more clearly defined guidelines.

The six-part game series will tell an entirely new tale within the Game of Thrones universe, one focused upon the House Forrester, a family of nobles living in the thick woodlands of north Westeros.
