A recent tweet from @Hitman states that the game will support HDR gameplay starting January 31st, on Xbox One S, PC, PS4, and PS4 Pro! Io programmer Anders Wang Kristensen explains, “As an example, think of 47 in a dark room looking out a bright window. Without HDR you would not be able to make out what’s outside, whereas with HDR you can simultaneously see details inside the room and outside the window.” “Another extreme example is the sun. Without HDR we could not render the sun brighter than a white piece of paper, so we had to ‘simulate’ the … Read More »

This is that period of time that Guardians have always been afraid of. It’s the time where there is no content and we are wondering what Bungie has planned next. Late last night Bungie came out with their “This Week at Bungie” update and informed us that there is indeed new content on the way. Bungie confirmed the removal of crimson doubles that would have been scheduled for February.  Guardians can look forward to a balance patch for weapons as well as new PVE events in the upcoming months. This week at Bungie we have updates on the brain.https://t.co/iKSW2ZvD9Q pic.twitter.com/TgDTxY2LJ0 … Read More »

Here we are, 12 hours removed from our last piece of news regarding For Honor, and we’re back at it again with more. Seems like Ubisoft are dropping information on the upcoming “sword-and-board” simulator, and we’re totally okay with that. We’ve bought VIP tickets to the hype train. On top of the three trailers released earlier which detailed 3 more heroes for each of the factions, we’ve now been treated to a trailer detailing the Faction War metagame. Essentially playing out exactly how you might imagine it would, players pick to represent either the Knights, the Vikings and the Samurai and … Read More »

You may have seen us report earlier this week that there was a rumor circulating that Codemasters were planning on resurrecting the much enjoyed Micro Machines series of games. It is with delight that we received confirmation today that the rumors were true; Micro Machines are back in Micro Machines World Series!!!  Whenever something considered a classic is re-imagined it is always expected to deliver an experience as good, if not better than the original. No pressure, Codemasters. So what can we expect? One of the most enjoyable aspects of the original game were the environments you were racing around. From jumping … Read More »

The mind of H.P Lovecraft was a dark and twisted place and it was the stories that came from this mind that cemented his place as one of the founding fathers of the science fiction genre.

Developer Cyanide has been working on a game called the Call of Cthulhu and it is starting to look very nice indeed. Cthulhu is the tentacle faced monster who according to the legends of the Lovecraftian stories is the leader of the older gods and it would … Read More »
