EA Announces All Access Subscription Gaming Pass For Xbox One

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 July 2014 at 15:10

EA has unveiled a new subscription gaming service for Xbox One, dubbed EA Access. Clearly inspired by the success of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program and Sony’s PlayStation Plus service, EA Access will be a subscription service costing $5 a month that will gain access to some of the publisher’s biggest games.

When the service arrives Xbox One owners will get unlimited access to Battlefield 4, Peggle 2, FIFA 14, and Madden NFL 25, as well as discounts on digital content and access to new games five days before release. It’s currently unclear whether EA intends to roll this service out to PC gamers, although Sony has gone on record to claim it isn't allowing the service on PlayStation 4 as it doesn’t represent “good value...” [More]

Assassins Creed Unity Arno Trailer Introduces Unlikely Templar Ally Elise

Written by Jon Sutton on 30 July 2014 at 12:55

Ubisoft has published a new Assassin’s Creed Unity trailer, depicting a chaotic and bloodthirsty plunge through the Parisian streets as protagonist Arno is chased relentlessly by the city militia. His course takes him to a packed square, where he must prevent the beheading of Elise, an all-new member of the Assassin’s Creed Unity cast.

Elise is reportedly a key figure central to AC Unity’s story, a young Templar noblewoman who establishes an unlikely bond with Arno, despite fighting for the opposite side of the cause in the eternal battle between the Assassins and the Templars… [More]

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 July 2014 at 11:40

The runaway success of Mario Kart 8 wasn’t enough to help the flailing Wii U though, with just 510,000 units sold worldwide during the three months from April -June, a period during which Nintendo endured a $97.2 million loss… [More]

Activision has released that latest trailer for Sledgehammer Games’ solo debut, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, taking a sneak peek at the game’s globe-spanning single-player campaign mode, in which many of the world's leading countries have been the victims of numerous damaging terror attacks.

GD Machine 2014 Skyrim Benchmarks GTX 750 Ti i5 4670K

Written by Jon Sutton on 29 July 2014 at 17:45

I have to hold my hands up and admit it, I'd only ever given The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim a brief whirl, way back at launch in November 2011, around the same time my not-so-trusty old PlayStation 3 gave up the ghost, may he rest in peace. It happened while I was playing Demon's Souls, which should give some indication of just how brutally punishing From Software's original is. 

Anyway, I'd given Skyrim a bit of a go, but the combination of muddy visuals and yawn-inducing load times put me off. Which was just as well once my PlayStation died, taking all my saves with it. Fast forward three years and I knew the time was right to see Skyrim in all its glory. Grabbing it off Steam I thought it would be a good opportunity to see how the GD Machine 2014 could cope with its huge open world. Armed with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 Ti, Intel i5-4670K processor, and 8GB of RAM, we put the GD Machine 2014 through some Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim benchmarks... [More]

The Razer Blackwidow Ultimate 2014 is the latest iteration of Razer’s flagship board, and whilst physically, the board looks completely identical to its predecessor in terms of size, shape, and build, there are a couple of differences with the 2014 edition of the Blackwidow that might encourage some gamers to switch over.
