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.

Asteroids: Outpost Hits Early Access With First Ever Trailer

Written by Stuart Thomas on 29 March 2015 at 10:00

The videogame publishing equivalent of fishing down the back of the sofa for some change, Atari has dusted off its ageing Asteroids franchise for one more run-out. Is it desperation, madness, or a recipe for nostalgic success? Time will tell, but for now we’ve got our hands on the Asteroids: Outpost launch trailer, as Atari’s latest hits Steam Early Access.

If you were anticipating flying around in a spaceship blasting asteroids to smithereens, you may have to adjust your expectations. In fact, take those expectations, pack them in a holdall, and fire them into the Sun. Asteroids: Outpost from Salt Games rejigs the 1979 arcade classic as The Next Big Thing™ - an open-world sandbox multiplayer shooter, whereby players are deep-spacer miners, expanding their bases, harvesting rare ore, and murdering their fellow man.

The Best Cities Skylines Mods So Far

Written by Joffy S on 28 March 2015 at 16:00

It’s been a fortnight now since Cities: Skylines built a concrete highway straight to our hearts. The ensuing days have predictably been filled with an incredible amount of mod support for the half million seller. More than 22,000 mods have already been created, at a rate of over 1000 every day.

The mind boggles at all of the treats that have been created, and now we take the time to highlight some of the best Cities: Skylines mods available today. From tsunami creators and an accurate recreation of Grand Theft Auto V’s Los Santos, to a full-blown flight-sim mod; there's something for everyone. [More]

Up For Debate - Is It Worth Chasing 4K Resolution

Written by Joffy S on 28 March 2015 at 14:00

Everywhere you look the term 4K is being thrown around with gleeful abandon. You can’t go near one of the litany of online PC hardware stores without getting a glimpse at these ultra high-definition beasts.

In truth though 4K monitors are elusive; the gaming equivalent of a snow leopard. How many of us have seen a 4K monitor in action? How many know someone who owns one? Not many I’d hazard a guess, and a quick look at GD members reveals less than 0.1% are kitted out with 4K monitors. [More]

Prepare For Bucketloads Of Claret In The Total War: Attila - Blood And Burning DLC

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 March 2015 at 12:00

I have to admit I wasn’t fully prepared for the bloodbath that would ensue for the Total War: Attila - Blood & Burning DLC trailer, but it turns out The Creative Assembly has been remarkably true to its word. Unleashing the full horror of the Hun’s nomadic apocalypse, the Blood and Burning DLC brings in some truly brutal blood effects for the most ardent war mongerers.

Having inwardly criticised Creative Assembly for releasing blood DLC for Rome II a couple of years back, I’m starting to see why it’s not included with the base game. Decapitations, limb-lops, head-impaling, disembowelment and more are the order of the day, with the Blood & burning DLC sure to garner a mature rating. [More]
