Mortal Kombat X Review : Killer Kombo

Written by Joffy S on 21 April 2015 at 16:30

I should preface this review of Mortal Kombat X with one, likely important, fact. I am a fighting game amateur. I am a fighting amateur full stop, more inclined to talk a man down than invoke the Queensbury Rules. As a genre though it’s one I have always admired from afar, wondering at the excitement of character reveals, frame counting, chip damage and guard breaks.

Take A Behind The Scenes Look At The Upcoming Kings Quest Reboot

Written by Neil Soutter on 21 April 2015 at 15:15

King’s Quest - a name sure to stir up all sorts of point ‘n’ click memories for PC gamers of a certain age. Sure, most of those memories are probably hair-pulling rage and expensive hint phone lines, but the rose-tinted spectacles do a fantastic job of papering over the cracks.

When we heard King’s Quest was making a return we’ll be the first to admit we had our doubts, but the folks at The Odd Gentlemen are taking an interesting approach to an age-old series. In this, the first of four behind-the-scenes looks at the development of the upcoming adventure game, creative director Matt Korba and producer Lindsey Rostal explore what can be done to bring King’s Quest kicking and screaming into 2015.

Trine 3: The Artifacts Of Power System Requirements

Written by Joffy S on 21 April 2015 at 14:00

Wizards, knights and thieves. The three pillars of beardy greatness, and the foundations upon which Frozenbyte has built one of the most adored 2D platforming series out there today. 2D that is, until today, whence Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power reaches out and latches onto another dimension of platform hopping pleasure.

The three hapless heroes inadvertently set loose a powerful, ancient sorcerer when meddling with the titular Trine, embarking on a wondrous journey to repair the damage they've caused. Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power's leap to the third-dimension is all well and good, but it comes at a cost. Before you hop in for some puzzle platforming fun you'd well to check out the official Trine 3: The Artifacts of Power system requirements.  [More]

Assassins Creed Chronicles: China Launch Trailer Hits

Written by Joffy S on 21 April 2015 at 12:45

The fever pitch surrounding a typical Assassin’s Creed release has been unusually quiet for Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China. It seems three-dimensions really are everything.

Ubisoft has released the launch trailer for AC: Chronicles trailer, and what it lacks in visual splendour it seems to make up for with actual stealth-based gameplay design - a feature mysteriously absent from Assassin’s Creed since its inception. [More]

Avalanche Studios is busy with not just one, but two high-profile releases later this year. Not content with pushing out Just Cause 3, the Swedish studio is also working on the Mad Max tie-in, scheduled to hit on September 4th.

Despite being just four months away from launch we’ve seen precious little of Mad Max, but Avalanche has now done what Avalanche always does - release a boatload of new screenshots and concept art for us to pore over. [More]

Rumoured Specs Of Intels First Skylake Cores Revealed - i7 6700K And i5 6600K

Written by Joffy S on 20 April 2015 at 17:00

As we bear down on Skylake’s arrival it was somewhat inevitable leaks would occur. The upcoming Skylake micro-architecture from Intel could be one of the biggest leaps in processing power for years, fabricated on the 14nm node and delivering improved efficiency and performance.

The first CPUs are pencilled in for a launch during the second half of this year, but ahead of then some possible specifications have leaked of the two processors leading the charge; namely the Intel Core i7-6700K, and the i5-6600K, both looking extremely promising if these leaked specs ring true.

Valve Now Restricts Some Steam Features Until 5 USD Is Spent In The Store

Written by Neil Soutter on 20 April 2015 at 14:00

Valve has introduced a new requirement for Steam users in order to prevent spamming and phishing, limiting account features until at least $5/£3.35 has been spent on the digital storefront.

Until users have coughed up the five bucks they’ll be restricted from sending friend invites, gaining any Trading Cards whatsoever, or voting on Steam Greenlight, amongst other things. If you’re kitted out with a Steam account and you’re only plugging away at free-to-play titles such as Team Fortress 2 and DOTA 2, then you’ll need to splash a bit of cash in the store in order to regain access.
