Mozilla Firefox Call Windows 10 Browser Selection Aggressively Biased To Edge

Written by Stuart Thomas on 31 July 2015 at 17:30

Its good to have choice. A few years back Microsoft got told by the courts that when someone installs their operating system, that user should not automatically be given MS Internet Explorer, but instead be presented with a randomised list to choose from. The browser list is made up of all major browsers currently available. Most of us have probably seen this at some point.

The reason for this was because the courts felt that Microsoft had a form of monopoly on the internet browsing arena. With the release and free upgrade of Microsoft Windows 10, Mozilla (developers of the Firefox browser) have publicly accused Windows 10 of pushing a user into using their new Microsoft browser, called Edge. And then makes it harder for users to restore their default browser settings from their previous version of windows. [More]

AMD Scientist Claims PC Gamers Forced To Upgrade Due To Damaging Nvidia Gameworks

Written by Neil Soutter on 31 July 2015 at 15:15

The gloves are off from team red, as AMD accuses Nvidia’s Gameworks of being tragic and damaging to the graphics card industry. Nvidia GameWorks is a toolset of exclusive visual effects and graphical effects designed to take advantage of GeForce hardware. It includes real-time hair physics, dynamically affect smoke effects, and dynamic clothing, among other effects.

The catch is, Nvidia’s GameWorks is designed to work best with its own hardware, to the detriment of AMD’s range of graphics cards. Nvidia works with a number of games publishers and developers to work the Gameworks effects in, but AMD’s gaming scientist Richard Huddy reckons this is to the detriment of game performance. [More]

EA And DICE Announce New Star Wars Battlefront Game Mode - Blast

Written by Stuart Thomas on 31 July 2015 at 14:00

EA has been hyping up a new Star Wars Battlefront mode for days now. DICE’s multiplayer shooter won’t just be restricted to capture points of course, and the latest of these modes is… drum roll please: Blast. Now that may sound all new and exciting to you and I, but it’s basically your common or garden Team Deathmatch. Ah well, it's still looks like a blast. *Hangs head in shame*

Blast will pit two teams of 10 against one another in fast-paced, close-quarters combat. It will be Rebels vs Imperials, but it will be taking taking place on specially designed maps that are smaller in scale. It’s all about getting to the action quickly, basically, which can be nice after a torrid afternoon on a Speederbike. [More]

Ubisoft Announces Zombi Is Coming Back To Life On PC, PS4 And Xbox One

Written by Joffy S on 31 July 2015 at 12:45

Ubisoft has announced its London-based survival horror game ZombiU is coming to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It’s been in the offing for some time now, with all sorts of shop listings and PEGI ratings hinting this could be a possibility.

Originally released as a Wii U-exclusive launch title back in 2012, the U has been lopped off, with the game renamed Zombi. If you hadn’t guessed from the name, Zombi is all about an impending viral apocalypse hitting the English capital. It’s proper survival horror, with the player taking on the role of a series of survivors. Once killed, that survivor becomes a member of the shambling hordes, and you spawn back at your safe zone as a new survivor. [More]

Prison Architect Up For Parole In October

Written by Neil Soutter on 30 July 2015 at 15:15

We thought this day would never come. The eternally-in-Early-Access Prison Architect will be launching this October. Yep, version 1.0 of Prison Architect will be gracing our hard drives, a feature complete edition of Introversion’s prison management game.

Prison Architect will be handed its belongings and booted out into society, eyes blinking against the harsh glare of the sun. The tycoon-inspired build-em-up has been available in Alpha form since September 2012, so it’s been a long old wait for gamers wanting the finished product. In that time it’s managed to shift well over a million copies. [More]

Microsoft Planning Windows 10 To Xbox One Streaming With Full Keyboard And Mouse Support

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 July 2015 at 14:00

Up until now, Microsoft has been keen to make a big song and dance about Windows 10’s ability to stream Xbox One games to a PC. That’s all well and good, if a little niche, but what about the other way around? Microsoft’s on the case, with head of Xbox Phil Spencer revealing that it will eventually be a possibility.

It seems a much better fit than streaming from an Xbox One to a PC, and it means you could potentially keep your gaming rig as a desk set-up, as well as beaming it out to your television for some couch play. To help this become a factor, the Xbox One will soon be receiving and update that will allow it support keyboard and mouse inputs. [More]
