  • While in Workshop mode, if the Jump button is remapped, the Y or Triangle button can still be used to jump
  • Ability to delete downloadable content via the Add-Ons menu (PS4)

DX11 vs DX12 Intel CPU Scaling/Gaming Framerate - tech
(hx) 08:36 AM EDT - Apr,20 2016 - Post a comment / read (1)
What does DX12 mean to those of you running an Intel processor with an older GPU? What kind of performance gains can we expect from DX12 on newer high end GPUs when used with an Intel processor?
Let's start by saying that most of these Ashes of the Singularity benchmarks can easily be put into the "theoretical" column. While I am sure someone somewhere will email me an exception, these high end Fury X and 980 Ti video cards being paired with a 1.2GHz processor is not likely. Conversely, a GTX 670 or Radeon 7970 being paired with a $1000+ Intel Core i7-5960X for gaming is a bit far fetched as well, albeit much more likely to be found in the wild I would think.

One thing that is interesting in all of these benchmarks over the last couple of weeks is a trend that "favors" AMD overall and DX12. While much of the headlines have been about how NVIDIA is lacking at DX12 performance, if you look at the "low end" benchmarks where the benchmark is CPU limited, NVIDIA's cards actually give a much better DX11 experience. Even the lowly GTX 670 gives a 39.4% performance increase at over the Radeon 7970 at LOW settings with the 1.2GHz CPU under DX11. Moving to DX12 on that same comparison, we see the two systems pull within 2 frames per second of each other. These results surely hold up the arguments that NVIDIA's GPU pipeline is much more in tune with handling DX11 instructions, and AMD's is much more svelte and certainly shorter when it comes to DX12.

Mafia III in October 2016 - briefly
(hx) 04:28 PM EDT - Apr,19 2016 - Post a comment
Mafia 3 comes out on 7th October 2016, 2K Games has announced. That's for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
2K and Hangar 13 today announced that Mafia III, the next installment in the popular organized crime game series, will launch on October 7, 2016. Collector's, deluxe and standard editions of Mafia III will be available for PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One and Windows PC. Those who pre-order any edition of Mafia III will receive the Family Kick-Back, which includes three exclusive vehicles and weapons available to players at launch.

Mafia III is set in the open world of 1968 New Bordeaux, a reimagined version of New Orleans bustling with activity and complete with era-inspired cars, fashion and music. After years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn't who you're born with, it's who you die for. Now, back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping his criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family from the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white-knuckle driving, hard choices and street smarts will all be required to survive the mean streets of New Bordeaux. But with the right crew, it's possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld.

Counter-Strike 1.6 on Android devices - briefly
(hx) 03:37 AM EDT - Apr,19 2016 - Post a comment / read (1)
Have you ever had the urge to play Counter-Strike 1.6 on your Android device? Probably not, but if you ever do feel the need to move from your huge monitor to a much smaller screen for some multiplayer action, now you can. The full game – maps, servers, everything – is playable on the mobile operating system. It uses a device's touchscreen controls, which, as you can imagine, isn't the best system for a first-person shooter. But you could always attach a couple of peripherals to your mobile/tablet to make things easier.
