Having Problems With GTA 5 Crashing On PC? - tech
(hx) 06:12 PM EDT - Apr,23 2015 - Post a comment / read (4)
Obviously NVIDIA and AMD both released game launch drivers for their cards to run GTA V optimally and Rockstar themselves have patched it but even so, GTA 5's crashes still persist and they are starting to tarnish the game. Here's a quick solution:
Step 1. Disable V-SYNC so the game no longer locks at 60fps

Step 2. Turn off Tesselation; this seems to help a lot with the crashes

Step 3. Set the resolution to match your monitor and also set the game to run in "Borderless Window Mode".

Overlord: Fellowship of Evil Announced - briefly
(hx) 05:46 PM EDT - Apr,23 2015 - Post a comment / read (1)
Codemasters has officially revealed the next part in the Overlord series, called Overlord: Fellowship of Evil. Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will be a co-op top-down RPG. Codemasters' Carl Johnson concluded that Overlord: Fellowship of Evil is not Overlord 3 as the game does not focus on its single player campaign. Instead, this is the result of Codemasters' wish to try something a little bit different with the multiplayer and the co-op of Overlord. Overlord: Fellowship of Evil will arrive in 2015 for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC

For the first time, players get an extended look at the deep car customization, metal grinding vehicular combat, brutal melee combat and a wide range of other activities they can engage in during their quest to build the ultimate survival vehicle, the Magnum Opus, and find solace in the Plains of Silence.

Batman: Arkham Knight PC specs - briefly
(hx) 10:29 AM EDT - Apr,23 2015 - Post a comment / read (1)
The PC specs for Batman: Arkham Knight has been revealed by NVIDIA, and surprisingly, it supports a rather wide variety of configurations. Here's what you'll need to get Arkham Knight running with minimum, recommended, and ULTRA system requirements:
Minimum System Requirements
OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
Processor: Intel Core i5-750, 2.67 GHz | AMD Phenom II X4 965, 3.4 GHz
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660
Graphics Memory: 2 GB
DirectX: 11
Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
Hard Drive Space: 45 GB


Recommended System Requirements
OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
Graphics Memory: 3 GB
DirectX®: 11
Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
Hard Drive Space: 55 GB


ULTRA System Requirements
OS: Win 7 SP1, Win 8.1 (64-bit Operating System Required)
Processor: Intel Core i7-3770, 3.4 GHz | AMD FX-8350, 4.0 GHz
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Graphics Memory: 3 GB
DirectX: 11
Network: Broadband Internet Connection Required
Hard Drive Space: 55 GB


55GB of hard drive space is pretty hefty, especially for you SSD owners out there. And recommending 3GB of graphics memory seems a bit steep as well, although if you've been preparing for some of PCs biggest games this spring, like The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto 5, we have a feeling you're probably ready to tackled Arkham Knight as well.
Star Wars Battlefront Dev Addresses DLC Concerns - briefly
(hx) 03:16 AM EDT - Apr,23 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
Jesper Nielsen from DICE took to Reddit to address concerns about the DLC for Star Wars Battlefront. IGN has the story.
I cannot stress this enough; there will be more than 8 maps! :) Also, the amount of content in the game has absolutely zero to do with DLC. I can say that with all honesty. As for expanding on strengths of the previous games; I think most people will find that it does expand on the strengths of the previous games, when it comes to core gameplay and what the feeling of a Battlefront game is. Just my two cents.

Please don’t make me break what I can and cannot say, but if you think there’s anything we’re not including in the game to save it for DLC, I can tell you you’re 100% wrong. In this project, I’ve never heard anyone say 'Let’s not do this for launch so we can do it as DLC instead'. Ever.

Why Are Videogame Bodies So Extreme? - briefly
(hx) 02:54 AM EDT - Apr,23 2015 - Post a comment / read (2)
There's a wide array of people that play games in general, but why do the games themselves not reflect this? Games frequently portray extreme versions of bodies, especially female ones, that don't represent this wide audience. Games like Dragon's Crown, Dead or Alive, and Bayonetta are standout examples of this trend, but the way it has spread through almost all games is troubling. Is it sexism? Game design? Both? Join Jamin in this week's episode of Game/Show as he asks why do games have such exaggerated body types?
