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]

Since launch it’s felt as if The Division’s practically disappeared from the face of the Earth, and Ubisoft’s evidently worried. The first of three planned post-launch expansions arrived with nary a whisper last month, and now Ubisoft has taken the decision to delay the next two in order to focus on improvements to the core game.

After the rest of the competition has disappointed, theme park fans' attention inevitably turned to the hugely promising Planet Coaster. It's under development at Frontier, the fine folks behind RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and Elite: Dangerous, so it's most certainly got some pedigree. It's been loitering around in Alpha form for some time now, with promising murmurings from those who've played it. Frontier recently announced a November launch date, and now we've got our hands on the golden ticket - Planet Coaster's official system requirements. Be warned though, this ride isn't for everyone.

Just as we’d suspected, Mortal Kombat XL is indeed coming to PC after snubbing it for a console only release earlier this year. And the best bit? Mortal Kombat XL is available to down for free via the ‘Enhanced Online PC Beta’. [More]

Colossal Order and Paradox have come up with a fairly novel method of sidestepping the whole ‘paid mods on Steam controversy’. They’ve announced that the next DLC for the hugely successful Cities: Skylines has been created by a modder but will be published by Paradox. [More]
