We’re not ones for conspiracy theories but Rockstar North has just made a pretty sizeable change to its Edinburgh-based HQ. Rockstar North is the main global office for Rockstar and they’re typically very proud of the games they put out. For the last two or three years, they’ve had Red Dead Redemption 2 proudly emblazoned across the front of its HQ. But, and here’s where it gets interesting, this weekend it was all ripped down.
Okay, so we got a bit ahead of ourselves earlier with the stories about Nvidia bringing RTX raytracing support to Minecraft and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. It turns out those were just the tip of an increasingly deep iceberg. No fewer than 10 upcoming games have been given the RTX treatment, heralding Nvidia’s arrival at Gamescom, Cologne in some style.
So here's a surprise for you, or me at least - Switch exclusive Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes is coming to PC this October, bundling in the frankly maniacal base game along with all of its post-launch content. It's a heck of a difficult game to write a summary on but suffice to say it's co-op arcade action which goes off in some unpredictable directions. It's not fantastic but it's certainly an entertaining enough foray for arcade fans. Travis Strikes Again comes to PC on October 17th but in the meantime, here are the PC system specs.
Nvidia has dropped the briefest of RTX trailers for the upcoming Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. Not only does the footage contain one of first peeks at COD: Modern Warfare’s single-player campaign, it also showcases the GeForce RTX-powered real-time ray-tracing effects which will be available at launch.
Minecraft’s ‘Super Duper Graphics Pack’ may have been unceremoniously dumped last week but help is at hand, provided you’re willing to spend at $350 on a graphics card. Nvidia has officially unveiled GeForce RTX ray tracing support for Minecraft, adding real-time ray-traced lighting effects to Minecraft’s infamously blocky world.
When it comes to just about any device, we probably turn them off when we’re done with them. I don’t keep the oven on forever just in case I need to pop in an emergency pie. You probably don’t keep your telly on 24/7 either, bathing your front room in a static glow for eternity. PCs are a little bit different though. They’ve morphed into the hub through which we can do practically anything.
Pulling smiley face on the mass extinction of the human race, Destroy All Humans! Remake is a, well, it's a remake of the fairly decent Destroy All Humans! which found its own corner of fame back in the PlayStation 2 days. very obviously going down that Mars Attacks route, Destroy All Humans! is set on 1960s Earth and you play as an alien, looking to annihilate the puny little humans by any means necessary. The remake's coming to PC in 2020 but, ahead of then, we've got our eyeballs on the preliminary system specs for Destroy All Humans Remake.
We wouldn’t necessarily bank on it being a great game (yet) but Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is absolutely shaping up to be a fascinatingly unique experience for gamers. Ancestors charts the epic journey from monkey to man, from prey to predator, weaving a tale of pre-history the likes of which we’ve never seen before.

Gaming’s a hobby we presumably all love, but it can also be a very time consuming one. Tons of games these days are dozens of hours long, invite us to check in on weekly events and updates, or give us our multiplayer gaming fix.
