Shadow of Mordor: The Bright Lord DLC Trailer - movie
(hx) 01:27 AM EST - Feb,25 2015 - Post a comment
Shadow of Mordor: The Bright Lord DLC is available as now as the final DLC pack for the game. Before The Bright Lord, the other DLC packs consisted of new skins, enemies, and hunting missions. The Bright Lord however stands out as the sole story DLC for the game, and promises to look like a formidable final battle. It promises 10 new missions and a new elite nemisis system for war chiefs and enemies. Let's just hope it will not be so reliant on quick time events as the main campaign's final battle bout was. Players can also play in a new challenge mode against high level enemies and earn high level runes.

Now it's up to the managers of Steam, XBL, and PSN to update the store :-)

NVIDIA Issues Statement Regarding GTX 970 - tech
(hx) 03:04 PM EST - Feb,24 2015 - Post a comment / read (4)
NVIDIA's co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang has issued a statement regarding the infamous VRAM reports surrounding the GeForce GTX 970. Je-Hsun Huang admitted that this memory architecture was created so that reduced-configurations of Maxwell can have a larger framebuffer (otherwise the GTX970 would come with 3GB of VRAM) and that the upper 512MB of the additional 1GB is segmented and has reduced bandwidth.
Hey everyone,

Some of you are disappointed that we didnít clearly describe the segmented memory of GeForce GTX 970 when we launched it. I can see why, so let me address it.

We invented a new memory architecture in Maxwell. This new capability was created so that reduced-configurations of Maxwell can have a larger framebuffer Ė i.e., so that GTX 970 is not limited to 3GB, and can have an additional 1GB.

GTX 970 is a 4GB card. However, the upper 512MB of the additional 1GB is segmented and has reduced bandwidth. This is a good design because we were able to add an additional 1GB for GTX 970 and our software engineers can keep less frequently used data in the 512MB segment.

Unfortunately, we failed to communicate this internally to our marketing team, and externally to reviewers at launch.

Since then, Jonah Alben, our senior vice president of hardware engineering, provided a technical description of the design, which was captured well by several editors. Here's one example from The Tech Report.

Instead of being excited that we invented a way to increase memory of the GTX 970 from 3GB to 4GB, some were disappointed that we didn't better describe the segmented nature of the architecture for that last 1GB of memory.

This is understandable. But, let me be clear: Our only intention was to create the best GPU for you. We wanted GTX 970 to have 4GB of memory, as games are using more memory than ever.

The 4GB of memory on GTX 970 is used and useful to achieve the performance you are enjoying. And as ever, our engineers will continue to enhance game performance that you can regularly download using GeForce Experience.

This new feature of Maxwell should have been clearly detailed from the beginning.

We wonít let this happen again. We'll do a better job next time

Quake Live Tournament - Allyrion Vs Jelouish - movie
(hx) 02:59 PM EST - Feb,24 2015 - Post a comment
These players were playing Quake as it would have been in 1996. The advanced exploitation of an engine was not known to them. To an experienced Quake player this display might be hilarious, and maybe you'd even want to reach out and teach them. Yet the game I was watching didn't show player crying for help. They were both well matched, the game was a close one and went to three maps.

Grand Theft Auto V PC Delayed To April 14th - briefly
(hx) 02:50 PM EST - Feb,24 2015 - Post a comment
Rockstar has announced that the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V has been delayed from March 24th to April 14th. In addition, the release of Heists for GTA Online on consoles is scheduled for March 10th.
GTAV for PC will be arriving on April 14th at retail and as a digital download. Our apologies to PC gamers worldwide who have been counting down the days until the launch of the game, but a bit more time is needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC. As a gesture of thanks for your understanding, we will grant anyone who has pre-ordered the game an additional $200,000 in-game cash for use in GTA Online.

As always, we ask for the GTA PC community's understanding and assistance in helping to report any concerns during the early days of launch when those inevitable initial teething issues arise on the new platform. If you do experience issues please visit Rockstar Games Support and send feedback to Ė we'll be closely monitoring the situation and addressing any hitches as quickly as we can.

The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V is our most graphically and technically advanced version yet, fully optimized to support a broad range of current hardware (system specifications) and features a host of PC-specific enhancements including greater levels of detail, deep configuration options and ultra-high-definition support Ė as well as the powerful new Rockstar Editor for recording, staging and editing original custom videos.

We thank GTA players worldwide for their patience in awaiting these big game updates and we are excited to bring both Heists and GTAV for PC to you very soon. Please stay tuned for lots more information in the weeks ahead and for now, check out some new screens showing action from Heists.

  • NVIDIA GTX 970 Lawsuit - It would seem that NVIDIA has been hit with a lawsuit over the whole GTX 970 debacle. Popcorn anyone?
  • Homeworld Remastered Collection Trailer - Gearbox Software now offers a another trailer from the Homeworld Remastered Collection, showing off the story for Homeworld 2
  • Trash TV Lands on Steam - Do you still have any CRT TVs in your home? Chances are no, you probably tossed or sold those monolithic things to make room for a much lovelier, flat screen set. Trash TV puts you in the shoes of one such tube television that has been sent to a recycling center. This angry TV must fight its way through the garbage in a 2D platformer in order to find its remote. There are tons of weapons to be found in the dump, as well as puzzles to solve along the way
  • SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition review - There is no doubt that SanctuaryRPG: Black Edition improves over its predecessor in just about every way possible, polishing up things that were great the first time around and adding loads of new content in terms of gameplay and story. Still, itís one of those things that only the most dedicated purists will appreciate, because the overall experience can still be enjoyed just as much in SanctuaryRPG: Classic
  • EA is teasing Battlefield Hardline Premium reveal - EA is teasing the reveal of the Premium service for Battlefield Hardline soon. Judging by the way Premium has been in previous Battlefield games, itís safe to assume the purchase will grant users all future DLC packs along with exclusive in-game perks, such as Battlepacks and cosmetic items.
  • Darkest Dungeon on Windows 8 Store is a scam - Darkest Dungeon is not officially available on the Windows 8 Store. Instead, someone is listing it on there for $3.99 as a 2MB download. This, of course, is a scam, as noted by Red Hook Studios co-president Tyler Sigman on Twitter earlier.

How much of Dying Light could actually be recreated in film?

Telling a story about four quarantine survivors' last ditch attempt to get to an air-drop full of crucial supplies, the video brings Dying Light key gameplay features to the real life, including parkour movement, car traps, and the fan-favorite dropkick attacks.
