(hx) 05:30 PM EDT - Jul,29 2016 - Post a comment
AMD has released brand new Crimson Edition 16.7.3 drivers for all you Radeon owners out there. According to AMD, these drivers offer a 10% performance improvement for Rise of the Tomb Raider. Here's a list of known issues as well as resolved issues:
Fixed Issues:

    Overwatch may experience an application crash on some Radeon RX 480 configurations when using AMD Crossfire mode.
    Vulkan information in the Radeon Settings software information tab may display an incorrect version.
    Radeon WattMan may retain settings of an overclock after it has failed. If you have failed an overclock with a system hang or reboot.
    Hitman may experience graphical corruption when the game is set to use DirectX12 API and using zoom with weapons.
    Total War: Warhammer may experience minor graphical corruption in some map textures on AMD Radeon R9 380.
    Flickering may be observed in Rise of the Tomb Raider on some AMD Crossfire configurations using the DirectX11 API.
    Changing settings in Dragon Age Inquisition with the Mantle API may result in an application crash or driver recovery.
    DiRT Rally may experience flickering terrain in some races when the advanced blending option is enabled in the games settings page.
    Display may exhibit a minor flicker on Radeon RX 480 when Freesync is enabled on a games launch or exit.
    Shadows may experience rendering issues in DOTA2 when using the Vulkan API.
    Textures may experience holes or gaps in DOOM when using the OpenGL API and three display AMD Eyefinity configurations.
    Need for Speed may experience flickering on some light sources in AMD Crossfire mode.
    Performing a task switch with two cloned displays during full screen gaming may cause flickering on the extended display.


Known Issues:

    A few game titles may fail to launch or crash if the AMD Gaming Evolved overlay is enabled. A temporary workaround is to disable the AMD Gaming Evolved "In Game Overlay".
    DOTA2 may experience an application hang when using the Vulkan API and changing resolution or game/quality settings.

Nvidia Will Pay GTX 970 Owners $30 - tech
(hx) 05:06 PM EDT - Jul,29 2016 - Post a comment / read (3)
Back in early 2015, Nvidia was hit with a false advertising lawsuit over claims that the listed specs for its GTX970 video card were not accurate. Simply put, the 4GB of GDDR5 RAM the card was supposed to come with was actually 3.5GB of GDDR5 and a separate 500MB block running at a significantly slower speed. They will, however, have to pay $30 to each customer of the GTX 970 who can furnish a valid proof of purchase by December 21. More details on this will be sent out on October 23, and the Court will first have to approve the settlement on August 24- but as of right now, it seems that GTX 970 owners may find their wallets a bit more flush over the next few months.

More Win10 Concerns from Tim Sweeney - briefly
(hx) 05:14 AM EDT - Jul,27 2016 - Post a comment / read (9)
Epic CEO Tim Sweeney has once again voiced his concerns regarding Microsoft’s Universal Windows Platform (UWP), this time saying that Steam will be made to run worse on Windows 10 in the next few years. Down below you’ll find what Sweeney said about Microsoft locking down the PC ecosystem, and how they are trying to 'bug' Steam through Windows 10 patches.
How exactly do you think Microsoft is locking down the PC to make it a closed platform?

There are two programming interfaces for Windows and every app has to choose one of them. Every Steam app – every PC game for the past few decades – has used Win32. It’s been both responsible for the vibrant software market we have now, but also for malware. Any program can be a virus. Universal Windows Platform is seen as the antidote to that. It’s sandboxed – much more locked down. The risk here is that, if Microsoft convinces everyone to use UWP, then they phase out Win32 apps. If they can succeed in doing that then it’s a small leap to forcing all apps and games to be distributed through the Windows store. Once we reach that point, the PC has become a closed platform. It won’t be that one day they flip a switch that will break your Steam library – what they’re trying to do is a series of sneaky maneauvres. They make it more and more inconvenient to use the old apps, and, simultaneously, they try to become the only source for the new ones.

Given that Steam is so widespread and popular, how could Microsoft truly win that battle, in terms of games at least?

Slowly, over the next 5 years, they will force-patch Windows 10 to make Steam progressively worse and more broken. They’ll never completely break it, but will continue to break it until, in five years, people are so fed up that Steam is buggy that the Windows Store seem like an ideal alternative. That’s exactly what they did to their previous competitors in other areas. Now they’re doing it to Steam. It’s only just starting to become visible. Microsoft might not be competent enough to succeed with their plan but they are certainly trying.

Isn’t it the case that Microsoft is simply mimicking Apple’s model, given how lucrative it’s proven to be for software distribution?

Sure, that’s the motivation. They’re trying to copy Apple’s model, but they realise you can’t just flip a switch. It has to be achieved in small step changes.

New PS4-Exclusive Yakuza 6 Trailer - console
(hx) 04:25 AM EDT - Jul,27 2016 - Post a comment
The latest trailer features actor Takeshi Kitano, who was first revealed in a teaser last September. Other notable actors who make an appearance include Shun Oguri (Crows Zero, Great Teacher Onizuka) and Tatsuya Fujiwara (Battle Royale, Death Note). Yakuza 6 was announced exclusively for the PlayStation 4 during Sony's press conference at 2015's Tokyo Game Show. In addition to Yakuza 6 Sega also announced Yakuza Kiwami for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, a remake of 2005's Yakuza. Kiwami has not yet been confirmed for a released outside of Japan. Yakuza 5 came to North America three years after its release in Japan. We scored it an 8 in our review, earning praise for its engrossing storylines and rich settings but criticizing the less-than-sophisticated combat system.
