  2. During Nintendo's Indie World Showcase today, developers Dotemu, Lizardcube, and Guard Crush Games announced Adam Hunter will be among the playable characters for Street of Rage 4. Along with the news comes a trailer showcasing his re-design and his return once players unlock him during the game's story mode. He is able to leverage screen-clearing combos and a dash ability, both unique to him, and we can see this on display in the trailer as he fights alongside his daughter Cherry as well as Axel and Blaze. Streets of Rage 4 will be the first mainline entry in the series for over 25 years when it launches for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.     Source: Press Release Back to original news post

  6. It is that time of the year when AMD likes to release its major driver update that typically adds new features. Previous examples of this would include when the company rebuilt the interface, added ReLive for capturing and streaming gameplay, and added Radeon Chill for reducing GPU power consumption. At the moment the drivers are not out yet for the public, pending WHQL package certification, but some in the press have gotten access and the press deck revealing all of the new features and changes. Among the changes is a new UI, which looks rather significant and will also be available in-game, for those times you want to tweak things while playing. The AMD Link app will apparently also get this new design. Before seeing that or anything else though, the installer has been updated to make it faster, use an improved factory reset, and keep your settings between installations. Radeon Image Sharpening has gotten some tweaks, including that it now supports DX11 games, the ability to control its sharpness, and you can turn it on and off in game. Those looking forward to integer scaling in Radeon drivers now have it, and it works with every GCN-based graphics card and newer on Windows 10. The Tuning Tab has seen some changes too, though apparently the underlying functionality has not. Radeon Anti-Lag has gained DirectX 9 support for graphics cards prior to the RX 5000 series and can be activated globally. One feature you will likely see a lot about is Radeon Boost. Exactly as the name suggests, it will boost performance in games, but what makes it interesting is it achieves this by dynamically reducing the resolution scaling based on mouse movement. It sounds like it is applying psychovisuals similar to how some video encoders do by reducing the resolution, and thus the detail, at times of high motion, when you are less likely to notice it, but when there is less motion, it does not reduce the resolution. It assumes motion by tracking mouse movements though, and not some actual analysis of the image or injection into the render pipeline, but you can set the minimum scale, so the resolution does not go too low. It also only supports eight games at the moment, limiting its usefulness but that will likely change in the future. It does work with Polaris and newer GPUs on Windows 7 and Windows 10. Another curious feature that is apparently not targeting consumers is support for DirectML media filters. These filters use machine learning to apply things such as noise reduction and upscaling for videos, but is not a Radeon Settings feature. Still, it is an interesting addition that is perhaps laying the foundation for the future. Hopefully it will not be long before the drivers can go public as I for one am looking forward to getting into them. Source: VideoCardz and TechPowerUp Back to original news post
  7. PlatinumGames and Square Enix have finally released a teaser trailer for Babylon's Fall, an upcoming title from their partnership. This trailer not only shows off the fluid, action-filled gameplay, but also the art style based on the Brushwork Filter. It was revealed as part of the latest PlayStation State of Play but the game is also coming to Steam next Summer.     Source: Square Enix Back to original news post
  8. Today The Wild Gentlemen and HandyGames have announced a new game we can expect next year titled Chicken Police: Paint It Red. It features Sonny Featherland and Marty MacChicken as they team up again to solve a mystery in Clawville as the Chicken Police. Inspired by classic film-noire movies from the 40's, but featuring various animals, this game will have you interact with over 30 unique characters, and some requiring fierce interrogation tactics to get the information you need out of them to solve the mystery. Clues, evidence, and sensitive personal information will be needed to use against the shady characters of the city as part of this grim story with absurd humor. Chicken Police: Pant It Red will be releasing in 2020 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch.     Source: HandyGames Back to original news post

  13. Fans of the BioShock series might be rather pleased with this news; 2K has founded a new studio, Cloud Chamber, and it is working on the next iteration for the franchise. Having offices in both Novato, California and Montreal, Quebec, this will be 2K's first studio with a Canadian office. Kelley Gilmore, who has 22 years in the industry and shipped over 40 games will be the Global Studio Head for Cloud Chamber, making her the first woman to launch and lead a development studio for 2K. Previously she worked at Firaxis Games, another 2K studio, on franchises including Sid Meier's Civilization and XCOM. As she will be based in Novato, she has tapped Ken Schachter to be the Montreal office Studio Manager and serve as an ambassador for Cloud Chamber and 2K to establishing a greater presence in Montreal.

  17. We've had several reviews go up this week, along with a bunch more from our affiliates, so this roundup focuses on ones you might have missed from OCC and elsewhere. We had a new headset from MSI, a look at Offworld Trading Company, and our picks for the Top 3 Coolers of 2019. There are also two video reviews, covering the Scythe Big Shuriken 3 cooler and the Anda Seat E Series Gaming Chair. Flipping around to our affiliates, there's a look at the Gigabyte GTX 1660 SUPER Gaming OC 6G video card. For something a bit lower, there's the Zotac GTX 1650 SUPER Twin Fan, giving you two options to consider for that wishlist. There's also an article taking a look at the $400 video cards from 2016 compared to the $400 video cards of 2019, showcasing what that amount of money bought you then versus now. If you're after some new memory, perhaps the HyperX Fury RGB DDR4-3200 16GB kit will hit the spot. If you instead need faster storage, then the Sabrent Rocket 1TB PCIe 4.0 M.2 SSD would solve all of that. The Razer Viper Ultimate Wireless Gaming Mice gets reviewed to see how it performs and if it should find a home on your desk. Wrapping things up is a look at the Creative Outlier Air Wireless Sweatproof In-Ear Headphones, as well as a look at the Best Headphones of 2019 to cover pretty much any budget, style, and musical taste.

    X370 bios update

    Thank you. I thought I remembered resetting bios before flashing to new bios, but Mr. memory aint what it used to be. Still leaning towards the carbon pro for my pc the sli plus for the wifes. Is the carbon pro That much better? MSI web site makes it seem like the audio section is the bees knees. Since it'll be doing dbl or triple duty music creation, graphics creation ,folding and maybe some video editing that one may be the better choice. Thoughts? In any event it will be a long drawn out process to get the stuff for both. THX again..

    X370 bios update

    If your system is overclocked it is advisable to reset the BIOS to default before updating,.. mainly to ensure you do not have any unstable system overclocks applied that could cause the system to hang while flashing.

    X370 bios update

    Always best to flash a BIOS from fresh. I always hit Set to Default and then flash.
  25. Is it advisable to reset the bios to default before updating the bios.Got the ram dialed up from 2133 to 2933 and cpu up just a little also and that's it.Or can I just update it and go ,I'm leaning towards reset. Been a loooong time since Ive updated a bios on a motherboard.Think mmmm close to a decade.I seem to remember it was recommended to reset MB to defaults,makes sense. MSI has released a bios that supports the Ryzen 2000 and 3000 cpu's.Plus the cpu I have now is supported in the bios. I do have 2 motherboards to use the MSI x370 sli plus, that I luckily won in the Christmas contest here and an MSI Gaming pro carbon my son gave me cause he didn't want to update the bios for a new cpu.Both have same type of update I believe.I'm leaning towards the pro carbon one.Same process for both but more work.And sloooowly build a Ryzen pc to surprise the wifey with the Sli plus and the cpu I have now in it. What has brought this on is Ive been doing a lot of graphic stuff lately and the Cpu I have now is slower than Id like/need it to be, even overclocked a smidge. Was thinking more cores the better for the rendering/graphics stuff Ive been doing..The program i use can use 16 cores I have 4 now. With 2 video cards folding 24/7 the vast majority of the time for OCC that doesn't leave many cores for folding.Folding alone is taxing 50-60 % on all of the cores. Cpu now is still fast as it is but multi threaded performance is a bit lightish.Sorry for the rambling thread.
