We are only a couple of days into 2017 and already Rockstar have released their first update of the year for GTA 5 Online. The talk had been that this year would be the year that Rockstar would start to wind up the updates for its phenomenal classic, the only problem is that no one seems to have told them that.

Hitman has seen many targets since its release; some celebrities have also been put in the crosshairs of the legendary Agent 47. Square Enix has released another HVT to take down, and again this target is timed. The target in question is Wen Ts’ai.

Like other Elusive Targets, you have one shot to take down Ts’ai before he gets away completely, and if you die over the course of … Read More »

Xbox One Emulation on PC Won’t Degrade Frame Rates

The hardcore gaming elite know that quality is everything in a game.  Not only how well the gamer itself is but how does it run.  With newer, upgraded versions of current generation consoles coming, console gamers are eager to see a consistent 60 frames per second and possible 4K graphics.  Microsoft is trying to make it easier to obtain through universal apps and play anywhere.
