    Just as the title says, we are going to try an experiment by streaming some gameplay on the brand new, OverclockersClub Twitch account. What's going to be streamed, you ask? The current plan is the newly released The Crew action-driving MMO, which I am in the process of reviewing. When? My plan is tomorrow (12/03/2014) at 4 PM EST. I am not sure how long I will be going, but I will try for a target of 5 PM. (By the way, my connection has an odd tendency to very briefly give out, but not briefly enough to keep some programs from disconnecting. I will try to monitor the stream on my laptop though, so if something goes wrong, hopefully I will be able to fix it quickly.) Will I be on a microphone? I want to do some testing on that first, to make sure volume levels won't be a problem, but I will see if that can happen. (Probably over thinking that.) No camera though. So that's the plan for this experiment. Hopefully it will go well and I won't crash and burn, except in the game.

    Though I had been thinking about going to Darksiders Warmastered Edition for the next game to stream, instead I've decided to play Siege of Centauri, the tower defense game built on the Nitrous engine, like Ashes of the Singularity and Escalation. It is currently in Early Access, so these videos will show it with missing features and such, but by keeping to it we'll be able to see it progress over the weeks, leading up to its final release.

  4. In about two weeks, Fade to Silence will release for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, so a new trailer has been released. Set to an eerie cover of Pixies 'Where Is My Mind?', which also lends the trailer its title, we get another look at what the game will offer players for story, with the world turned cold and covered in frost. Finding the limited resources remaining and balancing short and long term goals will be necessary for survival, both yours and those that follow you. Fade to Silence is releasing on April 30 with a suggested price of $39.99 on the PC and $49.99 on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.     Source: THQ Nordic Back to original news post
  5. If you have wondered what it would be like to be both wield a katana and time manipulation powers, than you should be thankful video games exist, as Katana ZERO is out now and allows you to do exactly that. With its neo-noir, action-platformer design, players will face an instant-death combat system while trying to uncover the truth. Neither the narrator nor the reality are completely reliable in this game, and you will find its narrative path can also be impacted not only by what the hero says, but when he says it and whether he interrupts the conversation. Katana ZERO is out now on PC, via Steam and GOG, as well as the Nintendo Switch. To celebrate its release, the launch trailer below has been released.     Source: Press Release Back to original news post
  6. Just next week Dark Devotion will release to challenge fans of action RPGs with its trials for those seeking divine recognition. As Templars, players will work through a temple's trials that will require flawless reflexes, intuition, and determination to succeed. You can see some of what developer, Hibernian Workshop have in store for you in the new video embedded below. It shows some of the gameplay you can expect, but there will be more horrors to endure in the complete game. Dark Devotion releases on PC on April 25 for $19.99 to Steam and GOG.     Source: Press Release Back to original news post

    I'm not so old (though I do feel like I am at times) but I still don't always have something to say. Too many of the things I'm doing are either for the site, so I don't want to talk about them, or something completely separate, and I tend to keep separate things separate. Maybe I shouldn't, but that's how I am currently.

    Humble Bundle has just started Weekly Sales. (First link to Humble Bundle, second to the news item.) My intent for this thread is to maintain it like the Steam Daily Deals thread, so hopefully I will remember to update it.

  11. I doubt it is necessary to cover that the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris burned recently, suffering significant damage. Since this tragedy, many have offered donations to restore and reconstruct the Cathedral, and now Ubisoft is among them, donating €500,000. Ubisoft already had strong connections to France and Paris, but during the development of Assassin's Creed Unity these connections deepened as the game features a recreation of the city, and Notre Dame. Along with making this donation, Ubisoft is making Assassin's Creed Unity free on the PC for one week (until April 25), through UPlay. Though it is not among the best games of the series, it can still be enjoyable and can allow you to explore a virtual version of the new damaged historical, national, and religious landmark.

  12. If you are a fan of the Trials series of games and got yourself a copy of Trials Rising, which released in February, then you should be happy to hear its Sixty-Six DLC is now available. With this, players get to continue trying to perfect their skills with Route 66 as their backdrop. You will need to complete League 3 in the base game to gain access, but once you do you will have 24 new tracks, including two Stadium Finals, and a pair of Skill Games. The DLC also adds the American Football Outfit, with a football helmet, jersey, pants, and cleats, new Contracts, and more hidden Golden Squirrel collectibles. The Sixty-Six DLC can be purchased standalone for $8 but is also included in the Expansion Pass for $20. The Expansion Pass also has the Crash & Sunburn expansion that will release in the future, and the Samurai Item Pack. Private Multiplayer mode is also now available to all players at no additional cost for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.     Source: Ubisoft Back to original news post
  13. On April 30, Just Cause 4 will receive its Dare Devils of Destruction DLC, adding new missions and weaponized vehicles. The DLC also adds new challenge modes across 15 missions, with these modes being Survival, Run, and Rampage. In Survival you will need to get through a gauntlet of mines, wrecking balls, and rings of fire, destroying obstacles on your way to the checkpoints in order to win. With Run, you want to cross the finish line and use your weapons to destroy your opponents while getting through extreme weather and doing high-speed stunts. Rampage puts you in an explosive arena that tasks you to make scrap metal of targets and rival drivers to earn the high score. As you complete missions, you will unlock the new vehicles and gain access to them through the vehicle drops, so you can use them where and when you wish. Dare Devils of Destruction is the first DLC of the 'Dare Devils, Demons, and Danger Expansion Pass,' and if you got the Gold Edition of Just Cause 4 you will get access to the pass's DLC one week early.     Source: Square Enix Back to original news post

  16. Next week will see the release of Assassin's Creed Odyssey's second story-arc DLC, The Fate of Atlantis, begin with its first episode, Fields of Elysium. With this players will get to enter and explore the paradise that is Elysium, a realm of beauty but also sinister secrets for you to reveal while facing the might of the Isu, the First Civilization. As you play you will encounter new factions, familiar characters, and gain some new legendary weapons and gear. Fields of Elysium will also introduce Ability enhancements, that will modify the abilities players already have access to, enabling them to fine-tune playstyles. Each episode will introduce new enhancements, with this first one bringing Ares Bull Charge, Might of Artemis, Kronos Time Warp, and Areas Madness. Fields of Elysium launches on April 23 on all platforms and is included as part of the Assassin's Creed Odyssey Season Pass for $39.99, the Gold Edition of the game, and as part of The Fate of Atlantis story arc that is available for $24.99. To access the new content, players will need to complete the Between Two Worlds, Heir of Memories, and Lost Tales of Greece questlines while also being at or above character level 28. If you do not meet these conditions, there is a shortcut that will get you into it at character level 52, but progression will not carry over to the main game save and achievements will not be obtained.     Source: Ubisoft Back to original news post
  17. Revealed back in January, Cooler Master is finally announcing the launch of its new Square Fan (SF) series of PC fans in its MasterFan family. By using a square frame, these maximize area coverage for generating high pressure airflow, which is desirable for CPU coolers. Rubber pads at the points of connection will reduce vibration and noise pollution, helping to keep these fans quiet, but they can also be bright with the RGB lighting they offer. Some also support addressable RGB for control by ASUS, MSI, and ASRock motherboards. The SF120R RGB and SF120R ARGB are both 120 mm fans and differ in the level of lighting customization possible with them. The SF120R RGB will have all of its LEDs the same color while the SF120R ARGB can have its LEDs produce different colors for more effects. The SF360R ARGB fan stands out from the others though, as it is not one fan, or three separate fans sold together, but a single unit. By placing the three 120 mm fans in a single frame, installing takes about as much time as it would to install a single fan, but the wiring will be easier as all three are powered by a single 4-pin PWM connection. The only other cable is for controlling the ARGB LEDs. Each of these fans also have a lighting extension header on its frame, so you can chain together fans without needing an RGB splitter. The MasterFan SF120R RGB, SF120R ARGB, and SF360R ARGB are all up for pre-order today in North America. We can expect additional units to be released in the coming months, including the SF240R ARGB, SF120P ARGB, and SF240P ARGB. Source: Press Release Back to original news post
  18. This marks Google's 14th year doing its Summer of Code, where it connects student developers with mentors to do open-source programing projects. Now Google is launching a parallel program dubbed the Season of Docs to connect technical writers with mentors to document these projects. To get the most out of any piece of software, one often needs to review its documentation, so when the documentation is lacking or absent, it can be very difficult to do whatever it is you wish to do. Through this project, open source organizations will be able to bring in experienced technical writers and mentor them to build the documentation, improve what already exists, and create tutorials if needed. Like with the Summer of Code, there is a timeline for producing the targeted results, but as a way to both improve or provide documentation, and increase the experience of technical writers, this is hopefully a program that will succeed and continue in the future.

  19. Originally released for the Nintendo Switch, Octopath Traveler is coming to PC on June 7. This will allow players to embark on an adventure in Orsterra as one of eight characters. Each has their own tales to experience, from quests of self-discovery to revenge, and they each start in their own land. The game will keep its 2D character design in the 3D world, as you can see in the media below, and will have both English and Japanese audio.     Source: Square Enix Back to original news post

  23. Launched back in November, HITMAN 2 is set to receive more content in the months ahead and IO Interactive has shared a roadmap of what can be expected, and when. Actually the developers have monthly roadmaps and livestreams to let you know what to expect, but today we got a selection of highlights for what we will see release into Fall. The next IOI Monthly livestream is planned for April 29. According to the highlights, those who have the Silver Edition of the game, which includes Expansion Pack 1, can expect a new sniper map, Hantu Port, in the Spring and a new location, The Bank, in the Summer. In the Spring we will also see new unlocks, Ghost Mode for Santa Fortuna, a Spring Break theme, and items and emotes. The Summer will also have a couple new special assignment missions released for those with Expansion 1, Embrace the Serpent and Illusions of Grandeur, along with a Jungle Summer theme. The Gold Edition of the game has both Expansion 1 and Expansion 2, so in addition to everything mentioned above, Gold Edition owners will also get a new sniper map, The Prison, and a new location, The Resort, in the fall. There will also be a couple special assignment missions limited to those with the Gold Edition, but the outfit and antique knife unlocks, along with Mumbai Ghost Mode, and two themes, The Rivals and Halloween, are not marked as needing an expansion. Of course content may change as we approach and enter these release windows, but we can also still expect more content to release. You can watch for the livestreams and monthly roadmaps to stay up to date. Source: IO Interactive Back to original news post

    Give it some time to grow on you, and for some of the kinks to be worked out.
  25. Announced about a month ago, Siege of Centauri is scheduled to hit Steam Early Access on April 16. Set in the same universe and using the same engine as Ashes of the Singularity, Siege of Centauri is a tower defense game instead of an RTS. By using the power of the Nitrous engine though, this tower defense game will be able to place thousands of units on the screen for you to deal with. It will take some strategizing to decide the best defenses to use for each situation, as low damage defenses that damage multiple enemies can outweigh the high damage, single-target guns you could otherwise build. Come April 16, Siege of Centauri will cost $9.99 on Steam, but if you would rather not wait, you can get beta access by joining the game's Founder's Program, which is also $9.99.     Source: Stardock Back to original news post
