Elite: Dangerous Visually Downgraded? - briefly
(hx) 05:27 AM EST - Dec,20 2014 - Post a comment
Elite: Dangerous has been recently released, however according to a number of fans that had access to the beta versions of this sim space game, it appears that the final version has been slightly downgraded. As we can see, some environmental effects are missing from the final version, while the textures themselves seem to be of a lower resolution. It remains to be seen whether Frontier will comment on this report or not. (thanks DSOGaming)

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - Exo Zombies Trailer - movie
(hx) 04:19 PM EST - Dec,19 2014 - Post a comment
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare's Exo Zombies mode will bring more Hollywood actors to the first-person shooter when it launches next month, publisher Activision announced today. A teaser trailer released today offers some glimpses of the creatures players will be fighting. This time around, they're not regular zombies - they're Exo Zombies. The cooperative Exo Zombies mode will feature John Malkovich (Con Air), Bill Paxton (Edge of Tomorrow), Rose McGowan (Planet Terror) and John Bernthal (Fury). It's unclear if the actors will lend their voices to Advanced Warfare, or if their likenesses and performance capture will also appear in the game, like Kevin Spacey's starring role in the campaign as Jonathan Irons. (The trailer features narration from Malkovich.) The first chapter of Exo Zombies comes with the Havoc add-on for Advanced Warfare. Havoc is set to arrive in January on Xbox platforms, and later on PlayStation and PC.

4K PC Version of MSG V: Ground Zeroes on Steam - briefly
(hx) 12:51 PM EST - Dec,19 2014 - Post a comment
Konami has released Kojima Productions' tactical espionage game, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, on Steam. (It's currently on sale for $13.39.)
El Segundo, CA - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today released the PC version of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES via Steam's digital distribution service. The PC edition of METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES marks the first use of 4K compatibility in the METAL GEAR SOLID series, boasting an increase in the number of simultaneous light sources, the number of models that can be displayed on-screen and increased shadow resolution. The game is available now for an SRP of $19.99.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES takes place in 1975 and sets in motion a series of events that culminate in the stunning plot lines of the upcoming METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN. GROUND ZEROES stars Big Boss - legendary hero and mercenary - as he infiltrates a sprawling secret prison base called ‘Camp Omega’ in Cuba on a rescue mission. He soon finds himself alone behind enemy lines, in a truly non-linear mission that showcases key advances to the series made possible by the use of Kojima Productions’ FOX Engine.

METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES is centered on a large open environment, with missions where time of day and weather cause a dynamic effect on the game and its content. The game offers total freedom of movement within its missions by allowing users to choose how they engage guards, what routes they traverse and who they rescue. As such, the game offers incredible replay value, encouraging players to revisit its content in order to find more secrets. Furthermore, the game features an online global ranking system where players can compete in unique in-game and mission challenges, as well as achievements to see how they compare against others around the world.

Minecraft: Story Mode Announced - briefly
(hx) 02:14 PM EST - Dec,18 2014 - Post a comment
Telltale Games announced today that it's working on a new video-game narrative-driven episodic series based on Mojang's Minecraft game. Yes, this is a completely separate, episodic, narrative-driven Minecraft game. It will involve player choice. Whether or not it will be an adventure game like what Telltale normally makes or a sandbox adventure similar to the current Minecraft remains to be seen. Mojang provided some quick details on their own post for the news.
- Minecraft: Story mode will be a narrative-driven video game created by Telltale Games. It will be about Minecraft.
- Mojang is collaborating with Telltale and members of the community to make Minecraft: Story Mode as Minecrafty as possible.
- The first episode will be released some time in 2015, and will be available on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
- Minecraft: Story Mode will be released episodically, just like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, or the recent Tales from the Borderlands, which is another developer-collaboration series between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software.
- We're not intending on creating an "official" story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game.
- The Minecraft 2 thing was a joke. No really. It was a joke.
Evolve - PC Technical Test On January 16th - briefly
(hx) 02:10 PM EST - Dec,18 2014 - Post a comment
On January 16th, PC gamers will get their hands on the game's technical test, while PS4 gamers will get their turn on January 17th. In order to participate in those technical tests, you need to have been in the Alpha, or on PC have Bioshock or Left 4 Dead in your library.



2K also announced all-new way to experience Evolve offline. Every character, every map, and every mode in Evolve can be experienced entirely offline as a solo player competing against computer-controlled opponents. Whether playing as the Monster, or hot-swapping between an entire team of four Hunters, Evolve’s unique blend of 4v1 gameplay is particularly enjoyable alone when playing the dynamic campaign, Evacuation, which combines the full array of maps and modes into a highly replayable experience.

Outcast 1.1 Coming To Steam - briefly
(hx) 01:11 PM EST - Dec,18 2014 - Post a comment
Fresh3D announced that an updated version of Outcast will be coming to Steam later today. According to the development team, this new version packs some bug fixes, offers native full HD support, and is optimized for CPU multi-threading.
For the CPU required. We just tested the game on an Intel i7-2600 @3.2Ghz, and it works smoothly at 1920*1080. :)

We also tested on an i5, and it worked too, but a bit less smoothly when unning at 1080p. But no problem with lower resolutions. :)

The new voxel renderer will support and use all the threads available. :) So yes, it does take full advantage of 4+ cores. :)
