German Professor Combines Oculus Rift With Real Roller Coasters

Written by Jon Sutton on 30 August 2014 at 13:00

It sounds like a torture scene from a particularly heated episode of 24, but a German professor has created an Oculus Rift demo designed to be experienced while strapped in to a real-life roller coaster, mimicking the movements in a virtual reality game.

The stomach churning demo was pieced together by Professor Thomas Wagner, who has combined the traditional roller coaster experience with with the possibilities of virtual reality. If you thought that 80m drop wasn’t scary enough, now you can do it on a sky track miles above the Earth’s surface. [More]

PC Graphics Card Sales Revealed For Q2 2014

Written by Jon Sutton on 30 August 2014 at 11:00

Market analyst firm Jon Peddie Research has released the latest sales figures for discrete graphics cards, revealing how many units both Nvidia and AMD have shifted during the past three months and beyond.

Nvidia leads the way by some margin during the past quarter, shifting over 7 million graphics cards in comparison to AMD’s 4.36 million, suggesting that for now Nvidia has wrestled control of the GPU market in the build up to the busier holiday season. Despite this total sales have plunged 17.6 per cent year on year, outstripping the decline in desktop PC sales. [More]

Planetary Annihilation Targets Earth On September 5th

Written by Jon Sutton on 30 August 2014 at 09:00

The cosmos-smiting real-time strategy title Planetary Annihilation has its sights set on a release next week, where it will be leaving the embrace of Early Access behind for good. Pencilled in for a September 5th release, Uber Entertainment’s Planetary Annihilation is created by much of the developers responsible for the sublime Total Annihilation and the slightly-less-sublime-but-still-pretty-good Supreme Commander.

To celebrate the destruction of life as we know it, Uber has sent along a shiny new launch trailer. Watch dumbfounded as entire solar systems are colonised, homeworlds are blown to smithereens and thousands of dastardly enemies blink out of existence in a single supernova flash. [More]

Written by Katie Allen on 29 August 2014 at 18:00

Ok, so were a TEENSY bit premature with our September Edition of WAYPTYW, but August has basically come and gone, and whilst that inevitably means the onset of Autumn for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, it also marks the start of the biggest gaming period of the year. September, October and November are stuffed full of a huge variety of AAA titles, and we couldn’t be more hyped about it.

For now, though, there’s still out back catalogues to get through before we start deciding what to spend our cash on next. Yes, that’s right, it’s that time of the month when the GD team tell you what they’ll be playing this weekend, before signing over to you, our members, to let us know all your gaming plans! [More]

Rumour: Nvidia Changing Name Of GeForce 800 Series To 900 Series

Written by Katie Allen on 29 August 2014 at 17:00

The GeForce 800 series has been the source of rumours for months. We thought we might hear a little more about the flagship 880 back at Gamescom earlier this month, but an underwhelming Nvidia showing left us just as in the dark as we were before.

Now, credible sources say the hardware giant may skip the 800 series altogether, instead moving straight to the 900 series of cards… [More]

Sacred 3 Review : Holy War

Written by dimebagdavey on 29 August 2014 at 16:00

Sacred 3 is a top down Hack'n'Slash RPG/ Brawler set in the vaguely sketched fantasy land of Ancaria. It is the third game in the series, and has kept the Sacred name in spite of being a quite considerable departure from the previous games in the franchise.

The enemy is the evil Ashen Empire, who want to get its hands on a mysterious artefact known as the Heart of Ancaria; an item that  is somehow extremely important.  You, and up to three other players, are going to stop them. [More]

Latest Titanfall Update Gets Rid Of The Titans And AI Fighters

Written by Stuart Thomas on 29 August 2014 at 15:00

Imagine Arkham Asylum without Batman. Or Baldur’s Gate without beards. Terrible isn’t it? Now you’ve just got over that, Respawn has announced plans to release a new update for Titanfall, adding a game mode that ditches Titans and the AI pilots completely. Dubbed Pilot Skirmish, the new game mode ups the player count to 8v8 and has pilots shooting it out in basic team deathmatch, without the 40-foot Titans anywhere in sight.

Due to the increased player count Pilot Skirmish won’t be a part of Titanfall’s Variety Pack playlist. Arriving as Titanfall’s sixth major update, the new mode brings Titanfall even closer in line with Activision’s Call of Duty series, stripping it down to its bare essentials as soldiers wall-run and double-jump like loons through the war torn environs.

PES 2015 Devs Take A Pop At FIFA 15, Liken EAs Latest To Ping Pong

Written by Neil Soutter on 29 August 2014 at 14:00

It’s getting heated down on the touchline as Pro Evolution Soccer representatives have begun engaging in a war of words with EA Sport’s FIFA series, claiming EA’s yearly iteration plays like a game of ping pong - or table tennis to us normal folk.

Despite the FIFA series being the easy victor when it comes to sales figures over the years, the PES 2015 team believes it’s got the better game of footie this time around. PES European brand manager Adam Bhatti and assistant producer Klaus Garner are risking the ire of FIFA fans across the globe, trash-talking FIFA 15’s gameplay in the run up to its release next month.

Australian Consumer Commission Taking Valve To Court Over Steam No-Refund Policy

Written by Katie Allen on 29 August 2014 at 12:45

Steam’s refund policy - or rather lack thereof - is pretty well known. The digital distribution platform does not give refunds on post-launch purchases except under exceptional circumstances, and Valve’s official policy on the matter is that refunds are simply not an option.

Unfortunately for Valve, however, this might mean they are contravening Australian law. The Australian Competition and Consumer Commissions is taking Valve to court this fall, arguing that the law applies to all businesses providing goods and services within Australia even if the company doing so has no physical presence there, as is the case with Valve.
