What Are You Playing This Weekend - July 2015 Edition

Written by Joffy S on 03 July 2015 at 17:00

If the weather near you is anything like it is here in England you’ve got one of two options - head outside and fry, or sit indoors and boil. If you sit indoors at least you’ve got games though, so I think that answers that little quandary.

The upcoming month is deathly quiet for new releases, but I’m sure we’ve all got plenty we still need to play. The Steam sale finished last week, so if your wallet has taken anywhere near the sort of bruising mine has then you’ll be absolutely set. Ah, and we had the small matter of Batman: Arkham Knight launch last week, which some of you have dared try on PC. [More]

AMD Radeon R9 Fury Specs Leaked

Written by Stuart Thomas on 03 July 2015 at 15:30

AMD’s Radeon R9 Fury X has been busy making waves in recent weeks, but it’s not the only high-end graphics card AMD's got up its sleeves. Next up after its water-cooled beast is the air-cooled Radeon R9 Fury, a slightly less powerful graphics card still packing that Fiji GPU and 4GB High Bandwidth Memory (HBM).

The specs of the Radeon R9 Fury were previously unknown, but the first tentative leaks have now emerged. The air-cooled enthusiast graphics card will be almost identical to its older brother, albeit with a cut-down 3,584 Stream Processors, compared to the full 4,096 on the Fury X. [More]

Dead Or Alive 5 Multiplayer Update Delayed - Still No Online Multiplayer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 03 July 2015 at 14:00

Dead or Alive 5 originally launched way back in March, and by all accounts it was a bit of a hamfisted port. In among all the other problems, there’s still one glaring issue - the multiplayer. Or lack of it, I should say.

Team Ninja launched Dead or Alive 5 without any form of online multiplayer, and it’s just announced that the anticipated update has been delayed once again. Originally expected to come at the end of June, Team Ninja encountered some major issues which could mean PC gamers are left waiting for a good while yet. [More]

See Resident Evil Zero HD Remaster In Action With 40-Minute Gameplay Walkthrough

Written by Neil Soutter on 03 July 2015 at 12:45

If you’ve never been one to play Nintendo consoles, then the chances of you having played Resident Evil Zero already are relatively close to zero itself. Capcom’s survival horror prequel, which originally landed in 2002, has never known a life outside of Nintendo’s dinky Gamecube or the tarted up Wii port, but it’s finally arriving on other platforms in early 2016.

We hadn’t seen much of the Resident Evil Zero port until now, but now Capcom has released an extensive 40-minute gameplay demonstration plucked straight from the sweaty clutches of E3 2015. It’s a runthrough of an early portion of the game, set on now iconic zombie-filled train. [More]

Nordic Games And Piranha Bytes Announce ELEX - Post-Apocalyptic Sci-Fi RPG

Written by Stuart Thomas on 03 July 2015 at 11:30

Nordic Games has announced it will be publishing ELEX in late 2016. ELEX is a new sci-fi role-playing game from Risen and Gothic creators Piranha Bytes, set within a post-apocalyptic open-world. Players will be given complex moral choices which will shape the world around them.

The name ELEX stands for Eclectic, Lavish, Exhilarating, Xenial, which is unusual to say the least. If, like me, you had to go and grab a dictionary, xenial means hospitable to visiting strangers or guests. So there you go. [More]

Get Reserving - Microsoft Planning Windows 10 Rollout In Waves

Written by Neil Soutter on 03 July 2015 at 10:15

If you’ve been holding off on clicking that Windows 10 upgrade icon sitting in your system tray, now might be the time. Microsoft has revealed that not everyone will be to get hold of the new operating system on its July 29th launch. Rather, the update will be rolling out in waves, beginning with those running the Windows 10 technical preview.

The thinking behind it is to start small before scaling up, ensuring Microsoft can tackle any unforeseen issues smoothly, without everybody piling in early. There will be regular updates immediately after launch, so early adopters could even be grabbing different versions to the launch edition, depending on when they get access. [More]

Star Wars Battlefront Alpha Comparison Screens And GeForce GTX 970, 860M Benchmarks

Written by Joffy S on 02 July 2015 at 17:30

Everything we've seen so far has pointed toward Star Wars Battlefront being quite a looker on PC, and these screens really don't disappoint.We've got hold of some comparison images taken straight from the Star Wars Battlefront alpha, giving us an idea of the scalability of DICE's intergalactic shooter.

As well as this, we've also got our hands on the first sets of in-game benchmark results. The first benchmarks were performed by an anonymous source on a laptop with a GeForce GTX 860M graphics card, which is roughly equivalent to the ever-popular GeForce GTX 750 ti desktop graphics card from Nvidia. The second set were performed on a GeForce GTX 970.  [More]

Forget PT - Kojimas Survival Horror Lives On In Fan-Made Allison Road

Written by Stuart Thomas on 02 July 2015 at 16:30

We had a funny feeling when Konami removed P.T. from the PlayStation Network, it wouldn’t be long until somebody came along and aped its ridiculously scary brand of horror. Allison Road is just such a game, and it really does wear its influence on its sleeve.

During the prototype 15-minute gameplay demo, the player is exploring a mysterious British house, examining the environment for clues as the world around them becomes ever more nightmarish. The nods to Playable Teaser are heavy, and if Konami didn’t want to finish the game, British studio Lilith Ltd looks more than happy to. [More]
