Chet Faliszek used to write for Valve, but after he left the company, we didn’t hear from him until now. He revealed he is making an action co-op game for PC with Bossa Studios. 

 

Faliszek Tweeted, “Excited I’m joining @bossastudios to direct an unannounced PC action co-op game trying to do something new in the narrative space using AI.”  Faliszek was one of the people that wrote Portal & Portal 2, both episodic Half-Life 2 expansions, and the Left 4 Dead games.

 

Bossa Studios made goofy games like Surgeon simulator so the game that Faliszek’s making is probably going to be a goofy game. They are also working on an early access survival game called Worlds Adrift.  They are also hiring to fill up the games team.

Bossa Studios is an independent game dev in London. Roberta Lucca, Henrique Olifiers, Ric Moore, and Imre Jelefounded, the company on 2010. They released an online game called Monstermind in 2011, and Over 1mil Facebook players played the game. In 2012 the game won the BAFTA Online Browser category. Thier most popular game was Surgeon Simulator. It sold over 4mil copies on the PS 4, PC, Linux, OS X, IOS, and Android, and most people have either seen or played it.

New In Farcry 5 in 2018 | More detailed open world + New storyline, Hunting, Tactics, guns for hire and NO Microtransactions

Far Cry 5 is set to be released on February 27, 2018 for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

Ubis soft’s far cry upcoming version is one of the most anticipated games of 2018. Far Cry 5 is growing up to be one of the biggest releases of 2018 in open world game style if not the biggest.

Far cry 5, A new Open world Game that lets you do almost anything

Far cry 5 the story

Welcome to Hope County, Montana.  You must rise up and fight for freedom to liberate a besieged community that a cult is to violently seize control of. Freely explore Hope County’s rivers, lands, and skies with almost the largest customizable weapon and vehicle roster ever been available in any Far Cry game. You of course are the hero of the story in a thrilling world that shakes up every moment, and where the places you discover and the locals you ally with will shape your story in ways you’ll never see coming. you see the unexpected and play e dynamic and detailed story. You’ll play a deputy sheriff trying to take the cult down. The leader of The Project is Joseph Seed, who calls himself The Father, and he resolutely believes that the end of days is coming and it’s up to him to save the town whether they like it or not.

Open world Gameplay in far cry 5

far cry 5 will be an open world adventure just like previous Far Cry titles with a vast range of vehicles you can use to explore, ranging from trucks and sports cars to gun-equipped planes and boats. You can go anywhere anytime. the problem with some open world games is that in some cases you see the general look to be a cool open world but in details you see a lot of boundaries like house you can not enter or unseen walls in the middle of nature that does not let you go any further. but it seem not to be the case with far cry 5 any more. it much more detailed free. You go your own path, The freedom to go in any direction, you decide the when, the where, and the how. From the moment you enter Hope County you have the freedom to tackle the world in any order you choose.

Far cry 5 & fishing, Hunting and driving

According to Ubisoft, vehicles and weapons will be customizable much more than anything in older versions. So it’ll be interesting to see what gamers will be able to do with vehicles and weapons. Hunting will also returns in far cry 5, with players able to fish and shoot at wild animals they encounter while exploring. You can actually go and sit and fish all day if you want and have some peaceful time around.

Far Cry 5 is introducing airplanes too!!!  with the tease of aerial combat and the ability to land on water with amphibious planes.

Guns for hire in far cry 5

Play your way against Joseph Seed and his fanatical followers in a dynamic open world that adapts and reacts to the choices you make. There will also be a guns for hire element to the game. When you have people around you and they’re fighting alongside you, you can manage and direct them using simple d-pad controls, instructing them which enemies you’d like taken out without having to do the work yourself. Implementing tactics in fighting. Its a little bit of a Ghost recon’s thing to be able to control the other people in the mission and many people love it in Ghost recon, so now you have a version of it in far cry 5 too. It’s an interesting and game-changing feature for far cry as it adds some much-needed variety to the otherwise not-much-changed combat features.

 

 

Animals fighting by your side in far cry 5

Similar to the Guns for Hire from previous games like far cry primal, allowing someone else to join your side in combat, there is Fangs for Hire, building on Primal’s Beast Master mechanics to allow animals – possibly dogs, wolves, cougars and bears – to fight on your side. Some time s they don actually fight but scare the enemies.

 

 

Expanded co-op :

In ubisoft the co-op is the online gameing platform with open world games. in recon the advanced co-op and 4 people gameplay was tested very well and many gamer loved it. But the co-op is not new in ubisoft games , even in Far Cry 4 it was introduced co-operative play as part of certain missions, and Far Cry 5 expands this by offering co-op play across all areas of the campaign which is something like what recon offers.

 

Character creation of far cry 5

In Ghost recon’s latest version, the wildland the characters were a huge part of costumizable features. Ghost recon is also from ubisoft so it is possible that the same features appear in farcry 5 as well.  Techradar reported that sources in ubisoft has told them that “players will be able to create their own character in Far Cry 5 with a choice of gender and some degree of appearance customization.”

All Galactic assault launch maps revealed [Star Wars Battlefront 2]

EA has revealed all Star Wars Battlefront 2 galactic assault launch maps 

 

Star Wars battlefront 2 image

Image credit: EA

 

EA has announced all of the Galactic assault mode launch maps. Galactic Assault is the crazy mode that we saw in the E3 demo. 

 

EA Tweeted a very mysterious Tweets with a bunch of question marks after that they Tweeted, “CLASSIFIED: #STARWARSBATTLEFRONTII GALACTIC ASSAULT LOCATIONS
BEGIN DECODING…”

 

 

The community quickly started decoding the message, and the first one to decoded was  The launch maps for Galactic Assault are going to be Naboo, Kamino, Kashyyyk, Endor, Death Star II, Hoth, Mos Eisley, Yavin IV, Jakku, Takodana, and Starkiller Base. That is very impressive considering Battlefront 1 only had a few free maps. 

 

Star Wars Battlefront 2 will definitely be a lot better than Battlefront 1 because of many reasons. 2 of the most important reasons are no paid DLC and a campaign mode. If you don’t buy the season pass, Star Wars Battlefront 1 would be very boring. The game was only fun for 3-4 hours after that most people would get very bored. Battlefront 2 beta will start on October 4 for people that preordered the game and at October 6 for people that didn’t preorder it. The beta will be available for the Xbox One, PS 4, and PC.

AMD Ryzen Enters Mobile CPU Market Strongly | Ryzen APUs vs Bristol Ridge

AMD-Ryzen-apus

AMD Ryzen Mobile CPUs Seems to be joining the mobile gaming

AMD new Ryzen platform benchmark in mobile platform has been leaked and Ryzen seems competitive | Ryzen APUs vs Bristol Ridge

Just recently the Benchmarks for AMD’s upcoming Raven Ridge APUs featuring the Zen CPU & Vega GPU microarchitectures have been release or some may say leaked. They are expected to be released before holidays 2017 somewhere around Dec 2017.

This is the first representation of Ryzen family in mobile platforms and with what we know about Ryzen in gaming world, its expected to bring high performance gaming in lower cost in mobile platforms. Vega graphics architecture is also being released along the ryzen for the first time in an APU Platform. Vega was announced last month and its new.Vega and ryzen are both in 14 NM platform. 14 NM delivers significant performance and power efficiency improvements over the older platform 28nm planar.

 

AMD Ryzen Mobile APUs Deliver 100% more than the Performance Of Old AMD’s CPUs

AMD has managed to increas its performance in desktop by making a smarter CPU rather than just making it stronger. This is also going to play well in mobile platforms. Smarter CPUs work by learning behaviors and making efficient use out of the most used data processing and files and apps. So in a way they are very individualized in terms of what sort of use the user have. The Ryzen 5 2500U  scored 9723 points in the multi-core part of the Geekbench4 test and 3625 points as single core. In comparison, AMD’s fastest mobile Bristol Ridge A12 9800B part scores nearly half the points in the multi-core test and more than 1200 points less in the single core test. Doubling the performance in a big deal in today processing technology that it seems that the tech giants are stock in increasing the processing speed and power. the first solution was using more CPUs so multi core cpus came to life, but now the next step seems to be processing efficiently.

Intel, on the other hand, has been dominating notebook CPU space with the 8th generation Kaby Lake-R chips by releasing the  Core i5-8250U. The “U” means an ultra-low power CPU for Intel and a standard mobile CPU for AMD. Geekbench scores seem to be in favor of Intel and not AMD. High end laptops like Asus ROG Strix GL702ZC already sport AMD Ryzen CPUs. AMD seems to be aiming at mainstream gaming market, Ryzen APU laptops are expected to become mainstream before the end of 2017. Lets wait and see what AMD has to offer in 2017.

HTC Stand alone VR headset coming

HTC Stand alone VR headset coming

HTC is making a VR headset that doesn’t use a phone or a PC

 

virtual reality video games

 

The new VR headset will be called HTC Vive Focus. HTC Vive focus will have a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 to power the experience. The VR headset will be robust compared to smartphones. The strongest phone that uses the Snapdragon 835 is the Note 8, so the headset will be pretty powerful compared to other smartphones.

Thanks to LetsGoDigital we have learned the name of the headset. It will be called HTC Vive Focus.

HTC has registered the headset for the US and EU, and it will probably be announced soon. The headset uses “WorldSense” to make sure you don’t hit something while playing it. The headset tracks motion too. WorldSense is a cool technology, and a lot of gamers will want to try it out. 

 

Note that the headset will not compete with the HTC Vive and it will not be able to play coll VR games on Steam, Google Play will power the headset. The headset will deliver a better experience than the Google cardboard, but it will not be the same as HTC Vive or PS VR. It is the first VR headset that doesn’t require anything.

Call of Duty WW2 PC open-beta details revealed

Call of Duty WW2 beta PC

Call of Duty WW2 PC open-beta details revealed

Activision has announced COD WW2’s PC open-beta details

 

Call of Duty WW2

 

COD WW2’s open beta will start on September 29, and it will end on October 2. The beta is open that means anyone can download it from Steam even if you didn’t pre-order the game.

 

Activision is doing the open-beta because they want to ” Stress test core gameplay systems and online backend infrastructure at scale,” and to optimize the game for PC. The min specs are: 

OS: Windows 7 64-Bit or later
CPU: Intel® Core™ i3 3225 or equivalent
RAM: 8 GB RAM
HDD: 25 GB HD space
Video: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 660 @ 2 GB / AMD Radeon™ HD 7850 @ 2GB or better
DirectX: Version 11.0 compatible video card or equivalent
Network: Broadband Internet connection
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible

These specs could change because Activision is still optimizing the game for PC. Activision will include a “small part” of COD WW2 in the PC beta. We will get more updates later.

 

Activision has already done the beta on consoles, but this is the first COD WW 2 open-beta. The console version included Players will be able to play three different game modes: Team Death Match, Domination, Hardpoint, and Call of Duty’s new multiplayer mode War mode. The war mode will be Operation Breakout. Activision said there would be at least three maps available in the beta: Pointe Du Hoc, Ardennes, and Gibraltar. Players playing the beta will be able to use the new class system called Divisions. 5 Divisions will be in the beta: Infantry, Expeditionary, Airborne, Armored, or Mountain Division. 3 ScoreStreak will be available in the beta: Glide Bomb, Artillery Barrage, and Molotov. More on that here.

 

We don’t know if the PC beta will be the same as the console beta but it probably will because it seems like Activision is working hard for the PC version instead of making a crappy port to PC and focusing on the console version of the game. Call of Duty WW2 will launch on November 3rd for PC, Xbox One, and PS 4.

Release of the new Intel Optane Memory and Gaming performance in PC Games

optane-technology-building-blocks-

Intel Optane Memory has been released, promising performance increase in PC gaming

Your games can be performed much faster, Intel claims by release of the new Intel Optane memory technology

Increasing Gaming performance in PC Games is what PC Gamers care about and its seems it is what Intel in promising by the new Intel optane memories technology.

 

intel optain optane memory

 “Games and levels will load faster too – up to 67 percent faster game launch and up to 65 percent faster level load”

Intel claims.

 

 

How does the Optane memory actually work?

Intel  Optane  memory was announced in March 2017 and is now available to purchase at stores. “With the increased speed and responsiveness of Intel® Optane™ memory in a 7th Generation Intel Core processor-based system, users can do more with their system, without sacrificing the value and capacity of a hard disk drive.” Intel claimed in their website and news conferences. But how it actually is going to help and how does it work to increase performance? Intel has claimed repeatedly that “Games and levels will load faster too – up to 67 percent faster game launch and up to 65 percent faster level load”

Intel optane is actually is to work like a ram and temporary that bridges between hard-drive and data processes, the only difference is that it is not temporary. Optane holds to data and keeps is on so you do not even lose data like a loaded game if you turn off the PC or even just get out of the game. It learns how the data is being used and keeps the track of user behavior in data the user use. So it can be described as a ram that doe not really lose data and is not temporary.

Optane project code name is 3D XPoint and devised by Intel and Micron. The structure that is generally believed to use some kind of change in resistance to record data, but its performance characteristics and technical capabilities make it appealing for a wide range of applications and specially video games as the giant running apps with huge data loads. One of the most important characteristics of Optane is the capacity. its promising up to about 500 GB in near future. Imaging haming 500 GB of ram, thats dreamy and is very expensive not only because you have to buy a lot of ram but you also need a lot of power and very high end mother board and so on just to support such a large amount of ram memory.

Intel’s Optane Memory modules can be thought as an alternative to solid-state storage with a solution that’s less expensive when you are packing your new gaming pc or trying to upgrade some parts. One of the most important areas that intel is aiming by this product is PC gaming with many gamers having to choose between fast (SSD) and capacious (HDD) storage solutions, but not able to get both without spending a small fortune. Actually one of the issues all PC gamers have while buy a new pc is how to come up with an economic and high performance storage option. its not only between SSD and HDD but also about RAM.  Techradar recently did a test and reported that the have about 50% less load time after turning off the game.

 

Wait times were reduced by 15%, while time loading a saved game state was brought down by a whopping 46%.

Techradar

 

 

The Intel Optane has bought some time for the old HDDs to retire by this memory load boost. HDDs are for a long time set to  be out and anybody expect a price drop in SDDs market after that but not they may even linger around more cause many people that are going for low budget- high performance pc gaming can now realistically think about just upgrading to Optane for high performance and using a huge set of HDD for permanent storage.

Intel has had other forms of SSD caching befor optane, like Smart Response Technology (SRT), which utilized up to a 64GB SSD cache. One most importante issue with regular caching is that chaching requires having the data you’re accessing in the cache before it work , that means the first time you use an game or app it will usually feel like you’re going straight to a hard drive because you are and you will even with optane. But in optane its the system that starts to learn your usage patterns, critical and commonly used files end up in the faster cache and improve overall system responsiveness. It keep most used data, most used file, most used patterns games based on your behaviors so it is already loaded “WHEN YOU TRY IT AGAIN”. Optane has also moved from  SATA-based connectivity to a much faster M.2 x4 PCIe connection.

So you have your olad data you always use already loaded and ready to work with and it does not go away even when you turn your pc off. In some way it is like the new Ryzen technology by AMD in CPUs and processing. Ryzen also keeps track of behaviors, data loads and file and process results and analysis and makes them useful  when being used again. The AMD Ryzen Platform also is reported to reduce time load and Processing speed by about 40 %.

 

 

Intel Optane Availability for gamers

Intel Optane memory module is not only to bring fast performing data storage but also cheaper and more affordable options than ram and they are now out at 16GB (MSRP $44) and 32GB ($77) capacities. Some OEM systems with Intel® Optane™ memory already installed will be available later in the year. Intel has released a list of new requirements for a basic optane supporting system in Intel’s website: Optane requirements

There are also virtual online gaming communities that existed which have their own base for communication and checks on updates, cracks etc. People from all over the world gather here for many reasons apart from playing games, they also chat around, meet new friends through games, exchange updates and items from the games and many more. It could be female and male, we’ll never know. We can only guess by their profiles though many choose to hide their identity. Online gamers would usually use a nickname and do not use their own pictures as their profile id. They would prefer to remain mysterious so that it would be more fun – unless you are professional gamers who made money through online streaming and joining the competitions.

2 new Bethesda games coming to the Switch

Nintendo Switch Bethesda

2 new Bethesda games coming to the Switch

Bethesda has announced Doom, and Wolfenstein II for the Switch and Skyrim release date announced

Nintendo Switch Bethesda

 

Skyrim isn’t the only Bethesda game coming to the Switch. Bethesda announced 2 new game ports that are coming to the Switch. The ports are  Doom and Wolfenstein II. The The New Colossus will be released next month but the Switch port will be available in 2018 and Doom will be available this holiday season for the Switch. Skyrim Switch will be released on November 17.

 

It seems like the Switch is getting excellent 3rd party support. Rockstar has announced L.A Noire for the Switch, that is the first game that Rockstar is releasing on a Nintendo console in years. Rockstar has announced L.A Noire for the Switch, that is the first game that Rockstar is releasing on a Nintendo console in years and more FIFA games might come to the Switch. Switch’s 3rd party support is solid.

In the past few years, 3rd party companies were not making games for Nintendo consoles. The only 3rd party consoles that released many games on the WII U was Ubisoft, and the Ubisoft ports weren’t even good. For example, Watch Dogs WII U didn’t have some features that other consoles had. That happened because WII U sells were awful so 3rd party companies couldn’t sell that many copies of their games on the WII U.

Switch sales higher then the Xbox One

Switch sales higher than the Xbox One

Switch sales are higher than Xbox One sales in the UK

 

Nintendo logo

 

The Switch has been a very successful console, and it seems like the sales are not slowing down. The Switch is outselling the Xbox One in the UK

 

 Christopher Dring‏  Tweeted, “UK sales of Switch are slower compared with other markets. But doing ok. Currently ahead of Xbox One for the year [but well behind PS4.]

The Switch sells are nowhere near the PS 4 but it very impressive because the Switch was released on March 3, 2017, but it has caught up to the 2017 Xbox One sells. Nintendo would have been a lot higher if there wasn’t a Switch shortage. If Nintendo doesn’t fix the shortage problem by Christmas Switch would fall behind the Xbox One because Xbox One X will be released on November 7th.

Nintendos shortage issue could impact sales, and Xbox One X release will affect the sales further. PS 4 sales are very high, so the Siwthc probably will not reach it this year, but Nintendo will probably stay ahead of the Xbox One X.

Over all the Switch has been doing a lot better than the WII U. The Switch has already sold way more than the WII U sold in all of its life time. The Switch has better 3rd party support, not the best but way better than the Wii U. Company’s like Rockstar are making Switch games, but Ubisoft was one of the limited 3rd party companies on the WII U.

AMD Ryzen New CPUs, the rise of AMD from the ashes in gaming market

amd ryzen 2018

 

AMD Ryzen, Intel’s prime competitor in gaming market

New benchmarks show how competitive AMD has become by the new releases of CPU line “The Ryzen”

 

AMD Released Amd Threadripper series and Ryzen 5 Desktop Processors for Gamers and Creators, claimed it is the Market’s Highest-Performance 6-Core Processor

AMD and the new Ryzen

AMD is trying to enter the whole market with its new platform “The Ryzen”.  AMD is releasing Ryzen CPUs both in entry level market by 4 cores CPUs like AMD RYZEN 5 and high-end market like Threadripper series that goes up to 16 cores.  It is hard to believe that AMD is becoming competitive in high end market because in the past inlet has been the dominating one without a real rival in that market. Now AMD is coming back strong.

 

ryzen vs intl 2

AMD’s 16 core, 32 thread Ryzen Threadripper 1950X is finally here to seize the throne for high end desktop processors. & Intel’s core i9-7900X, from the Skylake-X series, is Intel’s latest 10-core, 20-thread flagship processor. It’s the first to bear the i9 moniker and utilize the new X299 (Basin Falls) chipset/motherboard.

 

AMD has also shown some strength in mid-range market with Ryzen 7 1800X challenging the popular CPUs from intel Core i7-7700K & Intel Core i7-6900K. One of the Specs AMD has always been working on to beat Intel in processing is increasing the multicore power by increasing the number of CPU cores. It usually works in desktop applications while working on different apps but not that effective in gaming performance. Amd is still doing that but One more thing AMD has accomplished in the new Ryzen platform is efficiency of information latency. AMD has made CPUs that get smart while working with you. They tend to keep in mind what you do to avoid reloading and reprocessing data. AMD has claimed that It has improved the AMD CPU speed by about 40%.

The Ryzen Platform

Well for the people familiar with how a whole platform works its clear that AMD has been planning this for years. This is not a 6 month project and a one night announcement to show off. Ryzen is a big deal and now after about 6 month that it has been released its getting more serious. AMD’s high-performance x86 Core “Zen” architecture Is the basis of the whole Ryzen Platform. As Amd claimed it delivers >52% improvement in instructions-per-clock cycle over the previous generation AMD core, without increasing power. It started with introducing one mother board cheap and 3 CPUs  and now AMD has just released AMD Ryzen 5 for high performance gaming and also released the Ryzen Threadripper series witch is the higher and advanced level of the Ryzen platform. Threadripper Goes From 8 to 16 cores, Up to 32 processing threads From 20MB to 40MB  of cache and AMD says you can afford it. All this shows that AMD is ALL-In by Ryzen.

 

AMD RYZEN VS INTEL CPUS IN GAMING

New released Benchmarks of AMD Ryzen 5 Desktop Processors

Eight cores and 16 threads for under $500 means that they’re Very strong across a wide range of workloads and very cheap for what they stand for. Finally, an architecture that can compete But not in gaming. AMD promised a substantial improvement in instructions per cycle (IPC), and the expectation was that Ryzen would be within striking distance of Intel’s Broadwell core. Now Broadwell is old and came in September 2014. Intel’s high-core-count processors, both the High End Desktop parts, with six, eight, or 10 cores, and the various Xeon processors for multisocket servers, are all still using Broadwell cores. Nobody should have expected Ryzen to be a dangerous rival in gaming. Now Intel’s Skylake and Kaby Lake parts both beat Broadwell in a wide range of games.

Do not misinterpret this, Ryzen is a very strong CPU series for gaming. But at the same time it is interesting that Skylake and Kaby Lake are both limited to four cores and eight threads but for many or most games, high IPC and high clock speeds are the key to top performance, and that’s precisely what Kaby Lake delivers. While AMD is as always delivering tremendous multi-core experience specially with the 16 cores Threadripper, but still lacking the clock speed in single CPU performance to become number one in gaming.

Nintendo doesn’t want you to over pay for SNES classic edition

SNES Mini Box [featured image]

 

Nintendo doesn’t want you to over pay for SNES classic edition

Reggie doesn’t want you to overpay for the SNES classic edition

 

SNES Mini Box preorder

 

The SNES classic edition costs $79.99, but because of shortage issues, it costs a lot more on sites like eBay. Reggie doesn’t want you to pay $199 for a SNES classic edition pre-order.

In an interview with Financial Times Reggie said, “I would strongly urge you not to overbid on an SNES Classic on any of the auction sites, You shouldn’t [have to] pay more than $79.99.” The Snes classic edition preorders sold out in minutes all around the world and if you want to pre-order it now you will have to pay $199.99 on eBay.

Most people couldn’t get the NES classic because it wasn’t available anywhere and Nintendo discontinued it very early. Nintendo did say that they will increase the SNES classic production rate and shortage will not be such a big problem. The SNES classic will come out on September 29.

 

The SNES classic will include 2 wired controllers and 21 games. Some of those games are Super Mario World, Super Mario Kart, The Legend Of Zelda a Link to the Past, Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, Star Fox 2. Don’t remember Star Fox 2? That is because Star Fox 2 was never released.

No more Arkham games !?!?!

 

No more Arkham games !?!?!

Arkham voice actor says no more Arkham games !!!

LAST UPDATED ON

 

 

 

At WizardWorld Nashville Arkham voice actor was asked about the sequel to Arkham Knight and his response was very sad for the fans of the series. 

When asked about the future of the franchise and new downloadable contents he said, “You know, I can’t believe that they’re not gonna do another one, but they’re not. Isn’t that amazing?” He added, “They made literally billions of dollars on those games, but uh no, there’s no plan to do another one. Sorry.”

Sometimes companies don’t tell voice actors about new games they are making, but it seems like the Arkham series is dead because Rocksteady Studio has said Arkham Knights is the last Arkham game.

 

The first game in the series was Batman: Arkham Asylum. Batman: Arkham Asylumwas released at 2009 for the PC, Mac, Win, PS 4, and Xbox One. The game sold 4.25 mil copies world wide. Arkham Knight sold 4.21 mil copies, and it was released at 2015.Arkham Knight left a bad taste in PC gamers mouths. The PC port was awful, and it was full of bugs and performance issues. A Gtx 980 couldn’t run the game at a constant 60 fps at ultra 1080p. The 980 might seem old not, but at the time it was a high-end card.

Switch VR probably wouldn’t happen

During Variety‘s Entertainment and Tech, Summit Nintendo commented on VR

Nintendo VR

 

AT Variety’s Entertainment and Tech Summit Nintendo said, “problem with VR is that there aren’t a lot of experiences that are truly fun.” Variety reports, the company may consider the technology in the future. Most Switch fans definitely want VR Switch, but it seems like Nintendo isn’t going to do it. We have seen many leaks about Switch VR, but none of them seemed legit. 

Nintendo was trying to do VR on the Switch before it launched but they had some problems. Earlier this year Nintendo said, “If we are able to resolve the issues with playing [VR] comfortably for long hours, we will support it.” 

 

VR is amazing, and a lot of Switch fans want to see Switch VR. PS 4 has VR with good games so we don’t know why Nintendo wouldn’t do it. A lot of people say the Switch can’t handle VR but Nintendo could make something like google cardboard to use VR. Some people think Nintendo’s VR head set will work with a USB cable and to use it you have to plug it in the Switch while it is docked. If Nintendo releases a VR headset, it wouldn’t have the same quality as PS VR or HTC Vive, but it will be good. Nowadays a lot of people want VR and if Nintendo makes a good VR experience Switch sales will definitely go up.

PVP and training will come to Pokemon Go

The Pokemon company’s CEO told Bloomberg PVP and training is going to come to Pokemon Go 

Pokemon Go update

The Pokemon company will not abandon Pokemon GO. Ishihara [Pokemon company’s CEO] believes adding new features will make players come back to Pokemon Go.

Ishihara said, “We’ve only accomplished 10 percent of what Pokemon and Niantic are trying to do, so going forward we will have to include fundamental Pokemon experiences such as Pokemon trading and peer-to-peer battles, and other possibilities.” It sounds like they aren’t going to abandon Pokemon GO. Most people think that they should just give up on Pokemon Go and make a new Pokemon game that doesn’t require so much real money.

 

He also talked about climate based Pokemons: “One view is to have chilly Pokemon in a cold climate, but then that would also mean that people born on a tropical island won’t be able to catch them.” Gaming communities probably don’t want climate based Pokemon Go. 

Pokemon Go made $2 billion of revenue. People left the game for many reasons, and one of those reasons is micro transactions. If you don’t pay real money, the game will not be entertaining unless you’re lucky and have a bunch of Pokemon stations around your house. They are one of the few companies that don’t give up on their games even though almost everyone hates it.

Pokemon Switch game

Tsunekazu Ishihara told Nintendo the Switch would fail, but now he realises he was wrong. In the interview with Bloomberg, and he hinted the Switch Pokemon game would take advantage of the console

Ishihara said “I told Nintendo that Switch wouldn’t be a success before it went on sale because I thought that, in the age of the smartphone, no one would carry around a game console. It’s obvious I was wrong.” He seems to think that the Switch was so successful because of the software, not the hardware “I came to realise the key to a successful game is quite simple software with absolute quality leads sales of hardware. “

 

He also said, “With the Switch, we see it as a chance to create Pokémon that goes deeper and with a higher level of expression. As a result, that makes it an extremely important platform.” It sounds like Pokemon Switch will be one of the best Pokemon games.

 

Evey Pokemon fan wants Pokemon Switch, and the Pokemon company is trying hard to make it happen. The Switch has sold 1.5mil in Japan, and most Switch owners will probably buy Pokemon Switch. It sounds like Pokemon Switch will be one of the best Pokemon games, and all Pokemon fans will definitely want to play it. The Pokemon company has hinted Pokemon Switch’s release date more on that here.

EA told Gamestop more FIFA games are probably gonna come to the Switch

FIFA Nintendo Switch

FIFA 18 is launching on the Switch but fans are worried that FIFA 18 will be the last soccer game on the Switch.

Gamespot asked FIFA producer Andrei Lazarescu if more FIFA games will be released on the Switch, and he said, “I think we are going to see more FIFA on Switch in the future.” Lazarescu also said FIFA 18 Switch is the best portable FIFA ever. 

Lazarescu also talked about Switch version lacking some features like Journey mode he said, “The Journey is a mode powered by Frostbite [the engine that current-gen versions of the game run on], it only exists because of Frostbite–they are not separate. You can’t just [put it on Switch] without taking the whole Frostbite engine. So because this doesn’t have Frostbite, it doesn’t have The Journey.” When Gamespot asked if future Switch version will run on the Frostbite engine he said, “If we moved the [Switch] game over to Frostbite, then yes it could happen. But I don’t know if that’s going to happen. Frostbite is a very different beast.”

 

FIFA 18 will launch on the PS4, Xbox One, PC, Switch, Xbox 360, and PS 3 on September 29. The last gen and the Switch version of FIFA will not run on the new engine so they wouldn’t have features such as the journey mode.

Borderlands

The long-awaited Borderlands 3 might be on the way !!! At a PAX conference, Randy Pitchford [Gearbox’s CEO] said 90% of Gearbox is working on a game that most people want to see [reported by PCGamesN.]

 

He is probably talking about Borderlands 3. There is no other Gearbox game that everyone has been waiting for, and Pitchford showed off a tech demo. The demo was a game running on the Unreal Engine 4, and it looked a lot like Borderlands. 

 

 

Gearbox has been very quiet about Borderlands 3. Gearbox hasn’t given us any extra info about the game, and we haven’t seen any strong Borderlands 3 leak. Almost all gamers are desperately waiting for Gearbox to announce Borderlands 2 or see a Borderlands 3 leak.

Xbox One will get Mouse and Keyboard support

Xbox One will get Mouse and Keyboard support

Xbox is becoming more like PC and much more than a gaming consul 

 

XBOX_ONE_ _Gamescom

Image credit : public domain

 

Xbox One games with keyboard and mouse support are coming soon

Besides the fact that the Xbox one hardware is going to support the old mouse+keyboard interaction, the games are already getting ready to support it. and they are comming soon. On bringing full ready to use mouse and keyboard support to the console “soon.” Xbox CVP Mike Ybarra said as much during a Q&A session following a panel at PAX West this weekend when asked about the feature by a member of a crowd. He didn’t get much into specifics and did stress that developers would decide how to implement it.

 

This is the full quote about keyboard and mouse support:

Keyboard and mouse support is definitely coming. We have to be very smart in how we do that. We’ll leave it a lot to the developer choice. So a lot of people, they tweet me and say “you can’t do this because of fairness,” and we understand that. We run two platforms: the Windows platform and the Xbox platform. And so, when we bring keyboard and mouse, we’ll coach developers to say: “Look, you’ve got to think about your multiplayer pools.” If you have a competitive game, people probably are going to want the choice to say “I’ll play with other keyboard and mouse people,” “I’ll play with only controller people,” or “you know what, I’ll play with any of those.” So you’ll see our first games supporting keyboard and mouse soon. I can’t announce what that is, but soon. And then, based on developer interest, they’ll choose to do keyboard and mouse going forward. Or not.

Mouse-Keyboard interaction VS Gamepads

Many PC gamers don’t like consoles and transferring to xbox or playstation because of the controllers. That will change because of Microsoft. Microsoft is definitely going to add Mouse and Keyboard support to the Xbox One. So Is the future xbox going to be like An All-in-one PC?

 

 

Microsoft announced Xbox One Mouse and Keyboard support at PAX. Xbox will allow devs to pick if they want Xbox One players using Mouse and Keyboard. A lot of people don’t like that because players that use Mouse and Keyboard will have a significant advantage over people that use controllers. The Mouse and Keyboard support is good news for people that like games such as Halo Wars. Halow Wars will be a lot more enjoyable with Keyboard and Mouse. The feature will probably be in the Xbox One X update.  

Mouse + keyboard interaction is far different from game pad experience and that is why many old pc users can not really give up on their PCs and play their games in Xbox or playstation. If Xbox is to support mouse and keyboard it may mean that it could actually replace many home PCs as well and work like a Small gaming/media hub. Microsoft has mentioned in the past that they are going to somehow integrate all of their devices by one OS but now that windows phone is being discontinued its hard to make that assumption.

Mainly The news came after an alleged spec sheet for the Samsung Galaxy S9 was surfaced. According to the reports, the phone will sport a Snapdragon 845 processor by Qualcomm, in addition to 4GB of RAM as standard and run Android Oreo. The 4 gb ram is predictable now that note for its pen functionalities has got 6 gb, 4 gb seems to be the new satisfying minimum for high end phones now. It’s also possible the Galaxy S9 could come with a 6GB RAM variant and follow in the Note 8’s footsteps to have a dual camera setup. S9 also wil have the AR capabilities and will probably work well with the new gear VR Samsung is planing to release in sep 2017 to work with Galaxy note 8. In terms of size it seems that galaxy s8 was a good set of devices for none note galaxy phones and Samsung may continue doing that. There has been no leaks yet on benchmarks for galaxy s9. While some of these these reports are just rumours and estimations and some leaks, an earlier release date for the Galaxy S9 could benefit Samsung in some aspects.

Bully 2 concept art leaked !!!

Bully 2 Info has leaked bully 2’s concept art

 

 

Bully was a massive success for Rockstar, and a lot of people loved it. Every Bully fan is asking Rockstar to release Bully 2. I have good news; Bully 2 info has leaked three bully two concept art. 

 

Bully 2 info Tweeted three images, and they claimed the images are Bully 2 concept arts. 

Bully 2 concept art

Bully 2 concept art

The images seem legit, but Bully 2 info hasn’t proven they are legit. There is a high chance of that it is fake because Rockstar hasn’t talked about Bully 2 at all and when ever some one asks Rockstar about Bully 2 they keep saying that the game doesn’t exist.

Bully 2 Info, is the same Twitter account who managed to leaked other pieces of concept art for the bully before, had posted a new patch that shows a snowy environment in what looks to be Austria in the game design space. According to the leaker, he managed to get those as a result of the recent Rockstar move against modding in GTA 5  presumably referring to an act of rebellion on the part of the insider who shared them. Its good to have these rebellions once in a while so we could get some info on the ongoing ingame designs.

The Bethesda Game of Thrones listing is probably fake

The leak was fake :[

Game of Thrones

A Game of Thrones listing was going around on the internet. That is probably fake. 

 

The leak was a Target listing of a Bethesda Game of Thrones game. That was probably a hoax. That was fake because when a company like Target lists a game, they will usually put more info on the listing. The listing only showed a Game of Thrones game made by Bethesda. Also, any retailer would know the game’s name before putting it up. This leak didn’t even have the games name on it.

Switch getting VR support ??

Switch getting VR support ??

Switch might be getting VR support

 

 

We have seen a lot of rumors about Nintendo Switch VR. In my opinion, this rumor is the strongest one yet.

 

Cody Brocious‏  found VR references while looking at Switch’s code. We see two line of code: IsVrmode Enabled[] – bool; and the other line is SetVrModeEnabled [bool];.

 

 

He also confirmed that this is Nintendos code not code from Nvidia. Nintendo did say that they are looking into VR for the Switch. This code could be leftover from when Nintendo was developing the Switch. Nintendo could make a head set that connects to the Switch via USB. I think Nintendo should do that because people will be able to connect the headset while the Switch is docked. VR could be why there is a USB port right next to the HDMI port in the dock.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will look stunning on the Xbox One X

Rise of the Tomb Raider will look stunning on the Xbox One X

Rise of the Tomb Raider will run at native 4k on the X

Xbox One X post

 

Rise of the Tomb Raider will look very good on the Xbox One X compared to the PS 4 Pro. The games is going to run at native 4k!

 

tombraider.tumblr reported that three different visual modes would be available to Xbox One X players Native 4k, Enriched Visuals, and high frame rate. Some Xbox One X enhancement for Rise of the Tomb Raider are HDR support, Spatial audio support, Enhanced texture resolution, and Improved anti-aliasing. Tomb Raider will look stunning on the X, but I don’t think as good as a PC that is running the game at max setting 4k. The Xbox One X enhancement will be available when the console launches.

Bungie says why Destiny 2 wouldn’t run at 60 fps on consoles

 

Bungie says why Destiny 2 wouldn’t run at 60 fps on consoles

Bungie answers why Destiny 2 wouldn’t run at 60 fps

Destiny 2 cover art

 

We know that Destiny 2 wouldn’t run at 60 fps on consoles. A lot of people have been wondering why it doesn’t run at 60 FPS on the Xbox One X. Well Bungie answered that in the latest issue of Edge magazine [reported by wccftech]

 

Noseworthy told Edge magazine, “Could we make a Destiny game that ran at 60 fps? Yes, but the space would be smaller, it would be less cooperative, and there’d be fewer monsters to shoot. That’s not the game we want to make.” He also said, “But if frame rate is something that’s really important to you, there is a platform now where you can spend as much money as you want, to go as fast as you want.”

 

So if you want to play the game at 60 fps, buy a PC. In my opinion, Bungie should add a 60 FPS option on the Xbox one X for people that care more about frame rates than graphics. Destiny 2 will come out on consoles on September 6th and on October 24th on PC.

Sony has been hacked !!!

Sony has been hacked again by a Saudi Arabia based hacking group

 

A hacking group called OruMine hacked Sony’s Twitter and Facebook account. They also claimed they hacked PSN.

 

The hacking group hacked PlayStation’s Twitter account and sent out Tweets saying Sony should increase their security, and they claimed to have hacked PSN too. Don’t worry they have stated that they wouldn’t leak PSN but you should change your PSN password just in case.

 

 

The group also posted stuff in PlayStations Facebook page. On Facebook, they told PlayStation to contact them because they got PlayStation network database leaked.  

We don’t know if OurMine hacked Sony. They probably did because Sony has deleted all the posts and Tweets. So change your PSN password and hope that you didn’t lose your credit card info.

Player Unknowns Battlegrounds beats LOL in Twitch

Battlegrounds has surpassed League of Legends in Twitch

 

Player Unknowns image

 

PUBG has just reached a new mile stone. Battlegrounds is doing REALLY well. The game hasn’t even been released yet, and PUBG has already sold over 7mil copies !!  IPUBG going to be the next big Game in gaming market? joining GTA, Far Cry, NFS and ect?

 

This week Player Unknowns Battlegrounds was able to surpass League of Legends in Twitch 2nd to Dota 2. 16.9mil hours of Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has been watched this week, and people spent 15mil hours watching League of Legends. Right now Player Unknowns Battlegrounds is behind Dota with 30.6mil hours watched. I think Player Unknowns Battlegrounds will surpass Dota 2 because the game isn’t even available on any consoles and it hasn’t been released on PC yet.

Vega will cost $100 more in a few days

AMD is rising Vegas price $100

 

Vega price

 

Right now Vega 64 costs $499, and Vega 56 costs $399. Ryzen’s price is gonna go raise $100 because of AMD !!

 

AMD is going to raise Vega 56 and 64 $100. Gibbo [overclockers staff] said, “Now the good and bad news, the good news is AMD are rebating early launch sales to allow us to hit £449.99 on the stand alone black card which has no games. This is a launch only price which AMD at present are saying will be withdrawn in the near future, when if it happens is unknown, but remember do not be shocked if the price jumps nearly £100 in a few days.” That is terrible news for AMD because right now Vega 64 is performing like a GTX 1080, and You can pickup a GTX 1080 for $530. Vega 56 will cost $499 but Vega 56 plays just like a GTX 1070, and you can buy a GTX 1070 for $439. That makes Nvidia the GPU king again considering Vega costs more, Vega performs the same as the 1070/108, and it takes a LOT of energy to run it. Vega 64 consumed 310 watts, and the liquid version consumed 386 watts [click here to see Vega benchmarks.]

Game Cube games might come to the Switch

 

Game Cube games might come to the Switch.

An image showing Game Cube games that are coming out has been leaked. 

 

Virtual console switch

 

Since the Switch came out, people have been asking Nintendo when classic titles will get to the Switch ? We haven’t seen anything about classic titles on the Switch until now! An image that showed Game Cube games that haven’t been released is surfing the internet.

 

 

The image shows Nintendo’s website showing Game Cube games that haven’t been released yet. In the picture, we see Doshin The Giant and Sonic Adventure DX Director’s Cut both of these games came out on the Game Cube. Nintendo’s assistant manager hinted that we would get more info about Virtual console on the Switch soon. He also said they are working on something like the Game Cube. Also, Nintendo filed trademark applications related to their game controllers, and they also placed an N64 controller in it. That could mean that they will release an N64 controller for the Switch or it might mean that Nintendo is making an N64 Classic Edition, more on that here. Remember that theses are leaks and they could be fake.

Gran Turismo sport will not have any micro transactions

Gran Turismo Sport will be one of the few games without micro transaction.

Micro Transaction Gran Turismo sport

 

Everyone hates micro transactions. Right? Particularly in games that you paid $60 for it. Well, Gran Turismo Sport will be one of the games without micro transaction. I would’ve been happier if all the DLCs were free like Star Wars Battlefront 2. When you know there will be no microtransaction, you know you get what you pay for. Many games now sell a basic version and then for all DLCs and updates you have to pay extra which is sometimes really anoying to some gamers.

The developer of Gran Turismo Sport told Gema Show Indo that the game would not have any micro transactions, but there will be paid DLC. I am thrilled to hear that because I hate micro transactions especially in games that I paid $60 FOR !!!! 

 

Gran Turismo, abbreviated GT, is a series of popular racing video games developed by Polyphony Digital gaming company. Mainly Developed for PlayStation game concules. Gran Turismo games are intended to emulate the appearance and performance of real cars as close as possible.

New Version is to be released : TBD
Latest release: Gran Turismo 6; December 6, 2013
First release: Gran Turismo; December 23, 1997
Main game Publisher: Sony Interactive Entertainment
Platforms: PlayStation; PlayStation 2; PlayStation 3; PlayStation Portable; Playstation Vita; Playstation 4

Player Unknown dev making a survival game

Player Unknowns Dev want’s to make a survival game

Player Unknowns image

 

Most PC gamers have played or heard of Player Unknowns Battlegrounds and DayZ. Most people that played it loved it, and they were wondering if the creator of those games is going to make a new game. I could answer that he will make a new survival game.

 

Greene told Game Informer magazine, “I mean, I love DayZ and I love DayZ standalone, but I have my own idea for a survival game, and I just want to make a game I want to play. It’s why I started with battle royale.”

 

I am pretty sure most people are wondering if that means that he is going to abandon Player Unknowns Battlegrounds when he starts working on the new game. Greene told Game Informer Magazine “This game to us is not just a game that we’re going to push out a full launch and stop working on. We want to go back to it in maybe a year’s time and look at doing like Erangel 2.0 with everything we’ve learned over the past year and just redoing the whole island to make it that little bit better and more polished.” He also told Game Informer that he would continue improving the game for 5-10 years. So no he will not abandon Player Unknowns for a LONG time.

Pokemon dev talks about Pokemon Switch and hinting release date

The Pokemon Company has finally given us more details about Pokemon Switch

Nintendo Switch pokemon

When we were told, a Pokemon game is coming to the Switch everyone wanted more info about the game. We have finally got some more info about Pokemon Switch !!!

 

Game Freak [Pokemon dev] co-founder Junichi Masuda talked to Gameinformer about Pokemon Switch. Masuda told game informer “What I’m curious about and excited to see, will be the main way that people play the Switch. Will it be home for the most part? Will it be out and about? As we’ve been saying a lot, we always focus on, when designing the games, thinking about how the player is going to play the game – how they’re going to enjoy it, and what kind of experiences they are going to have. I’m excited to see where the main style of playing is going to land.”

 

He also said “But I also think the system hasn’t been out for a long time, and kids maybe haven’t got a chance to get their unit yet. I believe that a lot of kids will get a Switch at Christmass.” that could mean that Pokemon Switch will be released after Christmass.

HVY Nightshark and Overtime Shootout Adversary Mode now available

An update for GTA Online has been released 

 

GTA Online update

 

A new update has been released for GTA Online. The new update brings a new vehicle, Overtime Shootout Adversary Mode, and a sale on gun running stuff.

 

The new vehicle 

The new car is called Hvy Nightshark. The Nightshark has two machine guns on the front of it so players can “unleash a hail of bullets” and it is bullet & explosive proof. The Nightshark costs $1,245,000, and it comes in Red, Pink, Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Black, White. The Hvy Nightshark is going to be available from Warstock Cache & Carry.

 

The new adversary mode.

The new adversary mode is called OverTime ShoutOut. The only difference that over time ShoutOut and Overtime Rumble have is that players can’t knock others off the ramp. Some people didn’t like it when they landed on an excellent platform, and then another player came and knocked them off. Players that play it will get 2x RP and 2x $.

 

SALE

There also is a significant clearance happening in GTA Online. The Mobile Operations Center and all renovations are 25%  off, and all customizations for Weaponized Vehicles are having a 25% sale. Legendary Motorsports is having a 25% sale on all “Super cars, ” and the MK II ammo is having a 25% sale.

GTA V Switch version

 

is GTA V and Red Dead 2 coming to the Switch ??? 

Strauss Zelnick [Take-Two’s CEO] said the Switch would have “great sales.” and they are optimistic about it.

 

When the Nintendo Switch was released, Take-Two stated that they would support it. It seems like they weren’t lying because they are going to release two games on the Switch, but Take-Two hasn’t talked about Switch ports of GTA V and Red Dead 2.

In an investor call, Zelnick said Take-Two would continue to support the Nintendo Switch. Zelnick stated Take-Two is optimistic about Switch’s future, but he didn’t talk about a Switch port of GTA V. Hardware shouldn’t be an issue regarding that the Xbox 360 can run GTA V.

He didn’t talk about a Switch version of Red Dead 2. Red Dead 2 might not come to the Switch because of hardware constraints. 

Take-Two is going to release NBA 2K18 and WWE 2K18 on the Switch. That means there is more chance of GTA V Switch then there was the possibility of GTA V WII U.

Everything you need to know about BF 1 Specializations

In a Reddit post Dice reviled all the Specializations in BF 1

BF 1 image

 

Battlefields Specializations system is kind of like COD’s perks system. The Specializations are supposed to “provide more depth and strategy to the gameplay.” Every player will start with 3 Specializations by default other Specializations will be unlocked by completion of new Service Assignments.

 

What are the different Specializations?

There are two groups of  Specializations: Generic and Kit Specific. Every class will have 7 Generic Specializations and 2 Kit Specific Specializations. The generic Specializations are: Flak: damage from explosions are reduced 15%, Cover: Incoming suppression is reduced by 25%, Quick Regen: Decrease the time before Out of Combat Heal by 20%, Quick Unspot: Decrease length of time you are Spotted by 2 seconds, Bayonet Training: Bayonet charge lasts 1 second longer and regenerates 1 second faster, Hasty Retreat: Increase your maximum sprint speed by 10% whilst you are Suppressed, Camouflage: When moving slowly or stationary you are invisible to Spot Flares. The Kit Specific Specializations are going to be: Assault Specializations Juggernaut: Your Gas Mask also reduces explosive damage by 15% (does stack), Controlled Demolition: TNT is now detonated sequentially. Medic Specializations: Stimulant Syringe: Reviving an ally give you both a 20% sprint speed for 8 seconds (Does not stack), Concealed Rescue: Downed Squad Mates within 20m drop smoke to cover their revival (40s cooldown). Support Specializations: Unbreakable: Incoming suppression is reduced by 75% when your Bipod is deployed, Pin Down: The Duration an enemy remains spotted is extended via Suppression. Scout Specializations: Scapegoat: A decoy is automatically deployed when struck below 35 health by a distant enemy (30s cooldown), Perimeter Alarm: When your Trip Mine is triggered enemies within 15m are marked on the mini-map. More Specializations are going to be added in future updates.

 

Wehn is it going to come out?

 

The update is going to be available when the Name of the Tsar DLC releases in September for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. PC players can try out on the Battlefield 1 Community Test Environment. To get in the CTE, you either have to get a code from Dice or purchase BF1 premium pass.

Dev says Xbox One X cant run games at 4k

Killing Floor 2 Xbox One X [featured image]

 

Dev says Xbox One X cant run games at 4k

Dave Elder Killing floor 2’s Graphics Programmer said Xbox One X can’t handle true 4k !!

 

When the Xbox One X was announced, Microsoft said it is going to play every game at actual 4k, but it seems like that was a lie. According to the benchmarks, we saw Xbox One X isn’t going to play every game at real 4k and killing Floor 2 is going to be another none 4K game on the Xbox One X.

Dave Elder [Senior Graphics Programmer on Killing Floor 2] said, “Killing Floor 2 runs at native 1800p, fixed resolution (no checkerboarding) on Xbox One X. We did experiment with true 4k rendering, but the frame rate drop was a bit too significant. 1800p provides the optimal balance between visual quality and performance in Killing Floor 2.” He also said, “We will be using Ultra textures on Xbox One X. We are also increasing the resolution of our shadow maps and shadow draw distance.” I am disappointed with the results considering that the PS 4 Pro runs it at ultra setting 1800p [not native] and a Gtx 1070 runs it at 4k Ultra settings 30+ fps. At 1440p Ultra settings, a GTx 1070 gets 60 fps for almost the whole time, and it never dips below 55 FPS.

 

2:55: 1440p      4:18: 4k

NVIDIA’s GeForce NOW and the new Strategy in gaming platforms

 

NVIDIA’s GeForce cloud and the new Strategy in gaming market

 An innovative new service to expand the PC gaming market by Nvidia with high-performance PC in the cloud

 

gforce now

credit : nvidia

 

In June, NVIDIA (NASDAQ:NVDA) launched its new GeForce NOW service in beta to Mac users (available to PC users at a later time). For those who do not know about this, GeForce NOW allows gamers to play select games streamed from a virtual, high-performance PC in the cloud only by streaming. This innovative idea can help gamers with outdated hardware enjoy the wonders of PC gaming. Basically let gamers enjoy gaming in low end PCs or even tablets and phones in near future and in horizons of the project.  NVIDIA’S GEFORCE NOW  is very simple to setup and start gaming right away, basically is just internet. Users download the client app from NVIDIA, and they can immediately download purchased games from digital stores, including Steam, Battle.net, Origin, Uplay, or GOG.

The other aspect of this is that! The real strategy behind GeForce NOW maybe!!! NVIDIA estimates there are more than 200 million GeForce users around the world, and its average selling price for its graphics cards is $180 per unit. That works out to over $30 billion worth of revenue. Of course, NVIDIA isn’t going to suddenly generate that much revenue in one year from its gaming segment. But have in mind that it is the potential market and many of these people do not ever buy new products until the one in use breaks. So a portion of the market is inactive and this maybe a solution to make them join the NOW by much lower cost for gaming.

For NVIDIA to generate significant revenue from GeForce NOW, it would need tens of millions of users to sign up at least, which is far from certain right now.  But in the long term, the most beneficial outcome for NVIDIA may be to have customers buy actual GeForce graphics cards for their own PCs rather than rely on the revenue from customers who pay by the hour to use a cloud streaming service. It’s easy for gamers to simply stop paying the $25 for GeForce NOW access.

 

NVIDIA-GeForce-Now-

On the other hand, the software features and support tools NVIDIA makes available for customers who own a GeForce graphics card create a very sticky product for gamers. GeForce graphics cards can behave much like a video game console, encouraging players to pony up for regular generational upgrades. GeForce NOW is a great tool to introduce people to PC gaming and expand the market. But considering the cost and the problems with responsiveness in gameplay, users who really want to dig into PC gaming may be better off investing in the actual hardware. NVIDIA will forge stronger relationships with gamers who go this route, creating loyal customers in the process.

SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY is not gonna be rated E !!

Super Mario Odyssey featured image

 

SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY is not gonna be rated E !!

SUPER MARIO ODYSSEY is gonna be the first Mario platformer that is not rated E !!

 

Super Mario Odyssey Rating

 

Every Super Mario game is rated E until now. Super Mario Odyssey is gonna be the first Mario game rated higher than E. We don’t know why but an E rated games sometimes include some mild violence of the cartoon or fantasy variety and a bare minimum of language. I don’t think Super Mario Odyssey is gonna get a T rating. I expect Super Mario Odyssey to get an E 10+ rating. The E 10+ rating is for games that contain some objectionable content, but not enough to warrant a rating of T. These games include a slightly more pervasive cartoon or fantasy violence, some mild language, and minimal suggestive themes. Super Mario Odyssey is gonna be released on October 27, 2017, for the Nintendo Switch.

Gran Turismo Sport At 8K , “Over-Specced For PS4 Pro”

Gran Turismo Sport for future 8K consoles | ps4, ps5, xbox one, pc

 

Gran Turismo Sport

Finder.com reports In an interview with Kazunori Yamauchi. It’s due out on October 13 as a PlayStation 4 exclusive and it’s a lot of fun. Over the coming week, I will be passing a heap of new information your way, including this interesting tidbit about the scale of rendering the art team is doing.

Finder reports “During the studio tour, Kazunori Yamauchi took us from desk to desk, showing his staff beavering away on the game and the insane amount of detail the team goes to make the experience authentic. It’s really quite insane. At one particular desk, he zoomed right in on the wheel of a car to show the small-type – like the PSI – was in place and legible. A ridiculous detail given you’ll never notice at 300km/h flying down from the heights of Mount Panorama. Then he said the following: “It takes six months to create a single car. It’s over-specced for PS4 Pro. So we are building for future versions of the console rather than the one we see today”.

Intrigued by the suggestion that Gran Turismo Sport is being built to work on a theoretical PlayStation 5, whenever it might eventuate, during our one-on-one I asked Kazunori Yamauchi to clarify that comment. He replied, “I think it would be no problem to run it at 8K even.”

Crash Bandicoot Xbox One leaked

Crash Bandicoot Xbox One leaked

There have been a few leaks that hinted Crash is coming to the Xbox.

 

 

 A YouTube video was posted and it showed Crash Bandicoot playing in the Xbox One..The YouTube video wasn’t posted by some random person. The video was released by Crash Bandicoot’s UI designer. The video was taken down. There have been other leaks hinting that Crash is coming to Xbox One. Last month a Hungarian retailer listed Crash Bandicoot for the Xbox One and the it says the game is gonna be released at December.

 

 

Sony has not been clear about the games exclusivity on the PS 4. PlayStation Ireland said Crash Bandicoot will launch on 30th July 2017 and it will come to the PS 4 FIRST. 

 

 

It makes sense for Activision to release Crash Bandicoot on other platforms because Crash Bandicoot sold very well.

Next Battlefield game confirmed

BF 5 confirmed [featured image]

 

Next Battlefield game confirmed

EA’s ceo has confirmed that the next Battlefield game is gonna be released at 2018 

 

In EA’s investor call company CEO Andrew Wilson said the “next great game in the Battlefield franchise will be released in 2018.” That makes sense because Battlefield 1 was a huge success and when Call of Duty WW2 comes out I think Battlefield 1 will start to die down. EA has said that StarWars Battlefront 2 is for closing the gap between BF1 and the next BF game. So BF 5 is defiantly coming at 2018.

 

 

 

According to The CEO, the new BF game is going to be the “richest Battlefield experience” yet, although that shouldn’t be taken too literal given that we have no idea what the game will be like at launch and companies like to heat up the air before something new comes up to prepare the market.   Anyway, the focus on the next BF game is already as mentioned is “advancing” at the same time new DLCs are being released for the Battlefield One. EA increased their Premium features and has improved the interfaces but we also see a huge decrease in gamers interest in playing more Battlefield one while are trying hard to keep it interesting. Maybe its time to go for the next Battlefield in 2018

PS Plus is gonna cost more in Europe and Australia

 

PS Plus is gonna cost more in Europe and Australia

Sadly the PS Plus prices are gonna rise in Europe and Australia 

 

 

Sony has announced that PS Plus prices are gonna rise in Europe and Australia. From August 31 PS Plus will cost £50 / €60 / AU $80. PS Plus is gonna cost £20 / €25 / AU $34 for 3 month. A 1 month membership will cost £7 / €8 / AU $11. If people buy or renew PS Plus after August 31 they will have to pay the new prices. Sony said “there is nothing to announce” when Gamespot asked if the prices are gonna rise in the USA.

The company emailed members in Europe notifying them of the upcoming increase earlier this morning. The new prices go in effect as of midnight BST on Thursday, August 31. Back in September, Sony increased the prices for PS Plus in the US and Canada. Many suspected Europe would follow shortly after, and it now seems the time has come. Sony gave no reason as to why the prices are increasing.

The GTA 6 leak was fake

 

The GTA 6 leak was fake

The GTA 6 resume was fake

GTA VI logo

 

A few days ago everyone was talking about a leak. A actor claimed to have done motion acting for GTA 6 and Red Dead 2. Turns out the leak was fake. .pcgamesn talked with the actor [Tim Neff.] He told pcgamesn “That isn’t my page, account or resume. I don’t even know that website. I worked on GTA 5 a long time ago and haven’t done anything since. Sorry for the confusion. It seems I’m being trolled online really badly.” Sadly the leak was fake but I am pretty sure Rockstar is working on GTA 6 just look at how good GTA 5 sold.

GTA 6 is in development !!

An actor has listed motion capture work for Gta 6 on his resume 

GTA VI logo

 

Almost every gamer is waiting for Rock Star to announce a new GTA game. Rock Star has been very quiet about GTA 6 and we haven’t seen any thing about the game until now. Tim Neff [an actor] claims to have worked on GTA VI and Red Dead 2 motion capture on his resume. It is obvious that Rock Star is gonna make a new GTA game seeing how well GTA V did. This is the first time we have seen evidence of GTA VI. I just hope GTA VI will be good and I hope it will launch on PC. Remember that this might be fake because Tim Neff didn’t give evidence or we don’t know about the evidence he gave.

Now Minecraft runs at 1080p in the Switch

Minecraft Switch version

 

Now Minecraft runs at 1080p in the Switch

Minecraft’s 1.06 patch boosts the games resolution to 1080p on the Switch  

When Minecraft launched for the Switch people were disappointed because the game ran at 720 all the time. I have good news for those people, with the 1.06 patch Minecraft will run at 1080p 60fps in docked mode. The game looks a lot better on 1080p screens [look at the images below.]

 

 

Sadly in high demanding places the game drops to 55 fps. That is not a problem because mostly the game is running at a solid 60 fps. With the new patch split screen. At split screen the game mostly runs at 45-50fps in demanding places like the tutorial world. In open areas like the Mario world the game runs very close to 60fps. Nothing else has changed but Minecraft looks a lot better on my 1080p monitor.

Skull & Bones probably not coming to the Switch

 

Skull & Bones probably not coming to the Switch

Ubisoft’s Pirate adventure game is probably not gonna be released for the Switch

Ubisoft’s Pirate game Skull & Bones might not be coming to the Switch. Justin Farren told Game Spot, “Our world is pretty rich in terms of the world that we’re bringing to life, We haven’t really talked too much about the Switch, but if that becomes a reality then we would maximize the strengths of the Switch.” Skull & Bones is probably gonna be added to the games not coming to Nintendo Switch. The Switch is probably not gonna be getting a lot of games like Skull & Bones. Skull & Bones is gonna be released at 2018 for PC, Xbox One, and PS 4.

Breath of the wild is gonna get a multiplayer mode

 

Breath of the wild is gonna get a multiplayer mode 

A group of modders made a multiplayer mode for Breath of the Wild on the PC

The good news is that it is going to happen soon, Sadly the mod isn’t available yet, but if Nintendo doesn’t stop it people would be able to play Zelda Breath of the Wild co-op on PC using a Wii U emulator. The REGNR8 community posted the screen shot above to prove that the mod is real.

The mod is probably gonna be ready in 1+ years. Don’t expect it to be playable in a month.

Zelda is an incredible solo gaming experience, allowing players to enjoy a world all by themselves without having to deal with the nuisance of other players running around, or avoiding some tacked-on multiplayer. On the other, in its own unique way, Zelda can be a really social game due to its exploration nature, whether that’s with real life friends or fellow internet fans. It’s been a really fantastic experience. We have to wait and see the mod is probably ready in 1+ years. Don’t expect it to be playable in a month or two.
