Five New Games To Play On Intel HD Graphics - September 2014 Edition

Written by Katie Allen on 21 September 2014 at 16:00

After a quiet couple of months, September is pretty chockablock when it comes to game releases. There’s not only massive titles like The Sims 4 and Dead Rising 3, but a huge number of high-profile indie games from the likes of Double Fine.

For those of us with low-end systems, it’s a month practically soaked in accessible games, and not ones that will force you to turn your resolution down to 800x600 and put up with 25 FPS, either. Yep, thanks to what looks like some superbly optimised and scaled games this month, there’s a whole bunch of really good looking games you can get your paws on. [More]

Nvidia Makes Downsampling Easy With Dynamic Super Resolution

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 September 2014 at 14:00

During Nvidia’s GeForce GTX 900 series reveal the graphics card giant also took a bit of time out to introduce a new method for increased image quality. Going by the name Dynamic Super Resolution, Nvidia touts it as offering 4K-quality graphics on any HD monitor.

It’s essentially a downsampling tool that is the ultimate method of brute-forcing a cleaner image. Nvidia’s proprietary solution renders a game at a much higher resolution and automatically scales it down to the same resolution as your monitor, delivering an image similar in fidelity to 4K. Dynamic Super Resolution is a feature with the GeForce GTX 900 series of graphics cards firmly in mind, particularly in terms of how demanding it is to process at up to a theoretical 8K resolution.

Battlefield Hardline Hotwire Trailer Is Gone In Sixty Seconds

Written by Jon Sutton on 21 September 2014 at 12:00

We first got wind of Bullitt-aping Battlefield Hardline’s Hotwire mode a few weeks back, and now EA has released a trailer for new game mode devised by Hardline development studio Visceral Games.

Manning a vehicle in the Battlefield series is manic enough as it is, so when we heard Battlefield Hardline had a dedicated multiplayer car-chase mode we had a wee feeling it was going to be all kinds of crazy, and it doesn’t disappoint in this new trailer. [More]

The Order: 1866 Trailer Focuses On How You Will Be Blowing Beasts To Smithereens

Written by Neil Soutter on 21 September 2014 at 10:00

When it comes down to visuals we know that Ready at Dawn’s The Order: 1886 has all that it needs. The Victorian steampunk aesthetic looks jaw-droppingly good and it's clear the PlayStation 4 exclusive will turn heads. When it comes to how it will play though there’s very little that’s actually been showcased, but Ready at Dawn has at last revealed a behind-the-scenes video checking out combat and weapons in The Order: 1886.

In the alternate history setting players will take on the role of Galahad, a member of an elite order of knights embroiled in a centuries-old war with mythical monsters and arcane beasts. Extinguishing such nasties takes a little more than a can of bug spray and a lighter though, so Ready at Dawn has put together a vicious range of weaponry designed by the Order’s chief scientist, Nikola Tesla himself.

What is Star Citizen - Could It Change PC Hardware Requirements and Gamer Expectations

Written by Felix Nova on 20 September 2014 at 16:00

No matter how you look at it, Star Citizen is destined to have a huge impact on the PC gaming landscape. In a time when traditional publisher-backed game development takes the occasional backseat to crowd funded independents, the dev team over at Roberts Space Industries turned up on Kickstarter in 2012 and delivered their gaming vision pitch perfect.

And at the core of the pitch was, a PC-only space opera where the more funding it achieved the more incredible the game would become. Millions of dollars of unprecedented backing flooded in to show everyone that this MMO space simulator was something that has been missing from our collective lives. And as crowd funding records were broken by the sheer volume of PC gamers clamouring for a piece of this conceptual juggernaut, the vision continued to expand in line with that funding. [More]

Planetary Annihilation Review : All We Are Is Dust In The Wind

Written by Stuart Thomas on 20 September 2014 at 14:00

You know that movie where the villain challenges James Bond to play a weird proto-RTS on his weird seventies-punk brass and wood games console? Where they're slinging nuclear missiles at each other in a bizarre wireframe war simulator that was occasionally reminiscent of a cross between Populous and Tempest?

Did you ever want to play that dorky game (without the electric shock bit, of course)? Going mano a mano with a sharp-suited villain with only your wits and an armload of thermonuclear devices to your name? Well, here it is. [More]

Road Tripping In TGS 2014 Final Fantasy XV Gameplay Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 20 September 2014 at 12:00

It’s been going Final Fantasy crazy throughout this week, and in the rush of announcements coming out of Tokyo Game Show 2014 Square Enix revealed a brand new trailer for the eagerly anticipated Final Fantasy XV.

It’s the first we’ve seen of Square Enix’s sequel since way back at E3 2013, and the mix of gameplay and cutscenes looks a world apart from traditional Final Fantasy, taking a giant leap towards action-RPG mechanics and fast-paced gameplay. The two-and-a-half minute video shows four characters taking a road trip in a convertible, before hopping out the car to do battle with giant mythical creatures. [More]

Focus Got A Brand New Farming Simulator And Theyll Give It To Thee

Written by Jon Sutton on 20 September 2014 at 10:00

 After much umming and ahhing I decided writing a news article on Farming Simulator 2015 entirely to the tune of Combine Harvester probably wasn’t the best use of my time, but at least now you know the thought was there.

Focus Interactive is back once again, locked and loaded with haybales, flail mowers, backhoe loaders, and red diesel aplenty in Farming Simulator 2015. Arriving late next month, the next iteration of the multi-million selling Farming Simulator series has a brand new graphics and physics engine, new visual effects, an easier-to-use interface, new vehicles and more. Ladies and gentlemen, start your electric hoes. [More]

Wasteland 2 Review : Bit Of A Waste

Written by Stuart Thomas on 19 September 2014 at 17:30

Well, it's the era of the retro, isn't it? It seems that you can't move without oldies-but-goodies being necromantically resurrected for another bite of the apple.

Brian Fargo is, like Tim Schafer and Gabe Newell, always big news when he gets his mitts into a new game. Because back in the day, he took us to new worlds. Or, perhaps more specifically, one new world in particular - the blasted post-apocalypse wildernesses of the games Wasteland and Fallout. [More]
