One of the best things about PC gaming is all the little extra we can fold in. There are literally millions of different programs which can be installed to do everything from monitor your graphics card temperature to overclocking, managing your hard drive space, or editing your own video content.

Despite me trying to cram in as much Deus Ex: Mankind Divided as humanly possible since its launch, I’m only about seven hours in at the moment. Unfortunately not far enough to give my final verdict, but certainly enough to begin forming some firm opinions on Eidos Montreal’s gorgeous successor to Human Revolution. [More]

There’s a countdown going on over on the official Duke Nukem website, ticking down until September 1st. Gearbox still owns the site apparently, and if leaks are to believed it’s going to coincide with the unveiling of a Duke Nukem 3D remake, dubbed Duke Nukem 3D: World Tour (Redux). [More]

We’ve got our first look at some proper gameplay for The Church in the Darkness, giving us a sneak peek at how its mechanics are taking shape. It begins with an aunt heading to a remote settlement in a South American jungle, looking for her nephew. She’s unsure if he’s part of some bleach-drinking cult or actually down there having a fantastic time. I suspect the former, or we’ll have quite dull game on our hands. [More]

If you’re anything like me, you’re probably at a bit of a loss whenever you make an upgrade to your PC. Right now I’m weighing up whether to buy a pair of 8GB DDR3 RAM modules, but then I’m not sure what to do with the two 4GB sticks they’ll be replacing. Lazy me will probably want to take them out and put them in the DDR4 memory’s case, ready to be forgotten about forever. Or until the next upgrade at least. But there are of course better ways to do things. [More]

I’ve been playing quite a bit of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided this week and I found it a bit of a strange one. The game is great, no doubt about it, but at times it feels like the series’ PC roots has practically been forgotten in the chase for those console dollars. The PC version looks fantastic, much better than PS4, but there are a number of strange design choices which feels like Eidos Montreal funneling PC players away from a traditional mouse and keyboard setup.

The Wii U’s launch and subsequent weak sales has been unmitigated failure for Nintendo, perhaps given some saving grace by a few quality first-party titles. Fortunately, Nintendo appears to be extremely aware of its failings with the Wii U as Nintendo of America boss Reggie Fils-Aime has admitted “we have to do better when we launch the NX.” [More]

The rest of Fallout 4’s DLC might not have been up to much, barring Far Harbor perhaps, but the upcoming Fallout 4 - Nuka World is looking like a real humdinger. As if we’d need any further convincing beyond the concept of a post-apocalyptic theme park, Bethesda’s gone the whole hog and made an advertising trailer for Nuka World Theme Park starring park mascots Bottle and Cappy.

And so we come to the last proper bank holiday of the year over here in England. It’s usually almost unbearably hot so you’ve got one of two choices - head outside and join the millions of other crazy fools desperately trying to have a fun time during a combination of severe overcrowding, heat, and alcohol abuse, or batten the hatches and get stuck into three glorious days of game time. I know where my priorities lie. [More]

Whoops, it’s backtrack time. Last week Tom’s Hardware exclusively revealed that the new PCI Express 4.0 standard would be capable of delivering upwards of 300W from the PCIe slot alone. As it turns out this isn’t the case. Electronics standards consortium PCI-SIG has come out and explained that the 300W figured is obtained with supplemental power connectors, as per usual, and that the actual slot is still capped out at around 75W.

The first extended gameplay footage has emerged from the darkness for Vampyr, and it’s unsurprisingly a dramatic tonal shift from Life is Strange developer DontNod. A 15-minute chunk was shown off behind closed doors at Gamescom 2016, showing our protagonist Dr Jonathan Reid attempting to come to terms with his bloodsucking ways. From the looks of things it’s got Life is Strange’s narrative hooks and consequential decision making, paired with action sequences that have a whiff of Bloodborne to them. [More]
