Dead Or Alive 5 PC Port Misses Several Key Features - No MP Support At Launch

Written by Joffy S on 30 March 2015 at 16:30

If you’ve been keeping an eye for the long-delayed PC port of Dead or Alive 5, you might be best off holding onto your cash for a little while. Initial reports suggest this is exactly the sort of slapdash port we’d feared.

In amongst the graphical downgrade we head of a few weeks ago, the PC edition of Dead or Alive 5: Last Round out today comes without basic functions such as Steam Achievements, Steam cloud saves, key rebinding, and, most bizarrely, multiplayer support or any kind. [More]

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 March 2015 at 15:15

The ever-committed Slightly Mad Studios has revealed plans for a series of post-launch content updates for its upcoming racing simulator, Project CARS. In addition to featuring one of the largest real-life track rosters ever seen, Slightly Mad Studios will be adding new content each and every month following the racer’s launch in May.

The first car to be added will be the Lykan Hypersport. The star of the show in the latest Fast & Furious move, the Lykan Hypersport will be pulling up to the start line in June, available to download free of charge. While Slightly Mad Studios hasn’t indicated how many content updates it plans to create after launch, it has said this is just a sneak-peek at how Project CARS is set to expand in the future. [More]

Life is Strange: Episode 2 - Out of Time Review : As The Guitar Strums

Written by Mukul Gupta on 30 March 2015 at 14:00

Constants and variables. No, this is not the review for Bioshock Infinite: Burial at Sea but rather a peek behind development process of Life is Strange: Episode 2 - Out of Time from Dontnod Entertainment. We've already taken a look at the first episode of this gem of an episodic coming-of-age tale, but suffice to say the adversity this studio had to face to even bring a title like this to market is amazing.

Now, those constants for the series: Bad lip sync, jittery animations, awkward UI, a protagonist who is way too teenage-ey, epic lightning, Chromatic Aberration and shallow Depth of Field designed specifically to relay that photographic style the game is all about. The variables: a revamped dialogue style, revamped voice acting, much heavier decisions to take and of course, the plot really taking things up a notch.. [More]

Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare Exo Suit Infection Takes The Zombies For Fast Food

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

The barrage of season pass content for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare continues unabated, with Activision unveiling the second of four map packs for Sledgehammer Games’ sci-fi shooter. Alongside the four maps, which have already been detailed in a previous video, the latest trailer for Call of duty: Advanced Warfare’s Ascendance DLC pack focuses on the Exo Zombies Infection campaign.

John Malkovich is back for the second part of Exo Zombies, which moves things out of the previous Atlas research facility to a new battle for survival at the Burgertown fast food restaurant. Despite their slavering lips and giblety arms it’s still hard to take the zed hordes seriously beneath the shadow of a styrofoam hamburger. [More]

European Commission Tackles Regional Pricing Restrictions On Digital Stores Like Steam

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

The likes of Steam and even GOG have, in recent months, been doing their damndest to prevent users from picking up games on the cheap from other territories, but it could all be for naught if the European Commision has anything to do with it.

The executive body of the European Union has had enough with regional limits on digital sales, and wants to instead create a Digital Single Market. Valve recently clamped down on users doing this, even preventing cross-region gifting. GOG meanwhile made a name for itself for DRM-free games and its Fair Price Package, designed to eliminate region-specific pricing - an element increasingly forgotten in the push to get content from publishers.

Halo 5: Guardians Releases On October 27th Worldwide

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 March 2015 at 10:16

Microsoft has announced Halo 5: Guardians will launch on Tuesday, October 27th, worldwide, exclusively on Xbox One. The release date confirmation was joined by a pair of live-action trailers, hinting at what’s in store for the return of the legendary Master Chief as he takes on Spartan Locke - the UNSC’s top manhunter.

Halo 5: Guardians’ October 27th launch puts it in a prime spot for the holiday period, likely beating the next Call of Duty and DICE’s Star Wars: Battlefront to the punch. The live-action videos provide more questions than answers in the run-up to its E3 2015 unveiling though, with a human city reduced to rubble as the finger of blame is pointed at the Master Chief.

Intel And Micron Begin Production Of 10 Terabyte 3D SSDs

Written by Neil Soutter on 29 March 2015 at 16:00

Intel and Micron have announced they are working together on the production of 3D NAND memory chips. The stackable 3D memory will allow for the production of ultra-fast flash memory at extremely high densities.

The 3D NAND 2.5” SSDs have actually entered production and samples are being sent to manufacturers. The key benefit of this 3D storage is a tripling of the capacity of current NAND technologies, opening the door for 10TB+ 2.5 inch solid state drives. [More]

StarCrawlers Preview : Crawling Closer

Written by HenryS on 29 March 2015 at 14:00

Starcrawlers – the latest show in a fine old tradition of first-person dungeon exploration games.  This was probably one of the first genres to fully reach maturity, sometime back in the early ‘90s between the text adventure and the flight sim.  So a lot of polish has been put onto this particular style of gaming experience in the last 20 years or so.

Now, this length of pedigree can entail both good and bad consequences.  As a plus, there’s a vast heap of knowledge to draw upon when designing a new game.  You can learn from others’ mistakes and benefit from their successes.  But because of this it’ll never be easy to make a new game seem truly original, let alone non-derivative.
