Corsair's Bulldog PC: Liquid-cooled, 4K living room gaming

The Witcher 3 looks nice in 4K. This is neither something unexpected nor something my six-year-old, 30-inch living room television would be able to teach me. But I visited with computer hardware and peripheral developer Corsair to see its n...

 
 
Killzone goes to court photo

Sony agrees to settlement in Killzone: Shadow Fall lawsuit

Sony, Guerrilla, and Killzone are no strangers to controversies about graphics, after their E3 trailer for Killzone 2 was complete and utter bullshot. When it came to light that Killzone: Shadowfall's multiplayer uses a clever technique to ...

Look away from these 4K screens of The Witcher 3

If an image or video is tagged as 4K, yeah, I'm more than likely gonna click on it. Even if it's media showing a game at a level of graphical fidelity I can't possibly attain with my computer. Misery loves company, so please join me in look...

BioShock's opening moments recreated in CryEngine 3

I was all ready to freak out when I saw this homage to BioShock's opening sequence created in CryEngine 3. I figured, perhaps naively, that it would go beyond the lighthouse and deep into the ocean, all the way down to Rapture. But at just...

The GTA V update turned my character black

Okay, I admit: sometimes I do wish I were black. However, that desire never translated into the virtual gaming space because, I don't know, I guess I felt it didn't really represent me? Well, thanks to the recent Grand Theft Auto V update, ...

Geralt will grow a beard while you play The Witcher 3

Some would call beard growth in videogames insignificant -- a waste of time. They would be wrong. As spotted in the NeoGAF recap of German gaming magazine Gamestar.de's factoid-filled coverage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, protagonist Geralt...

Seeing ships sliced apart in Star Citizen is satisfying

As a casual observer of Star Citizen, I've struggled to keep up to date with the game's open development. It can be overwhelming. That's why I appreciate this recent video covering the damage model -- it's accessible. Blowing up spaceships...

Let's guess how much the Nvidia Titan X will cost

NVIDIA has no plans to address GTX 970 memory woes

You saw Microsoft's crazy hologram headset, right?

Earlier today, Microsoft held a Windows 10 event. My stream kept dying, but I posted about the Battletoads shirt worn by head of Xbox Phil Spencer during his segment about gaming. Much of the event was uninteresting or irrelevant for this a...

Congrats on the Academy Award, SpeedTree

Do you ever take a moment to stop and admire the scenery? Too often are we focused on mindlessly pushing forward to the next objective to notice the little details. Foliage, man. Take it in. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences i...

Fun with sliders: Ground Zeroes looks noticeably better on PC

Nvidia and Konami have released screenshots comparing next month's PC release of Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes with the PlayStation 4 version, and I'm glad I waited. Officially, this is what's new: Additional deferred lights per scene ...

Ubisoft comments on Watch Dogs' unused graphics settings

Modders have found settings in Watch Dogs' files that can be enabled to make the game look better and, in some cases, even improve performance. What's the deal with that? "The dev team is completely dedicated to getting the most out of each...

Somebody put BioShock assets in Unreal Engine 4

The original BioShock ran on (a heavily modified version of) Unreal Engine. That was almost seven years ago. What would the game look like running on the newest iteration, Unreal Engine 4? Someone had that same thought and put in the effor...
