Just hoping Gearbox brought the Chemical X

The beauty of simplicity
Confession time: I'm pretty out of the loop when it comes to the indie game scene. I love me some Nidhogg, Samurai Gunn, and Crawl, but it's not uncommon for me to have only heard about these games just before release or late... read feature

New gen nut punches

Forza Horizon 2 will display at 1080p, running at 30 frames per second


The difference between a game with set tracks, and an open world
Jun 06
So it seems Forza Horizon 2, unlike Forza 5, will not be running at 60 frames per second. While it will still display in 1080p, the open-world nature of Horizon doesn't seems to play nice with the idea of a locked 60fps rate,... read
