Looks deliciously over the top, liked the World Cup reference. Still think it's playing up the anti-German sentiment maybe a tad too much, but it's OK, we're used to that by now. Besides if there's a resistance cell in Berlin then there must be some good Germans im das werldt, nein? :laugh:

No multiplayer?! Damn I was hoping to recapture some of the memories from Return to Castle Wolfenstein multiplayer.

I wonder if the PC version of it still has an online community.

 

When you have a free moment, look up WarwitchTV on twitch.

 

If you're a fan of RTCW then I suspect you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Did you install the 2.56b patch?

Don't think so, where can I get that?

I went ahead and preordered the game itself. I feel like the FPS genre has taken itself way too seriously and this game is anything but that. And I support that fully.

Game itself: could be interesting. Getting sick of having to enter birthdays to read a blog though.

I must say that, despite my loswest expectations, these trailers have convinced me.

 

This is the game Duke Nukem Forever tried to be.

Hahaha didn't notice that until you pointed it out, nice touch! Actual melons! What the hell are melons doing in a bleak landscape like that? These guys have a good sense of humor.

Another game where developers get lazy and let the storage requirements fly out of control. Seriously, a shooter has absolutely no reason to need 50GB.

That's just the size of the file, come on, it's not really a proper requirement. Maybe this game is huge? Maybe they got lazy and didn't compress the 4K textures? I don't know. Specs i'd be suspicious of are like min 8GB RAM and an i7 or something, that's either PR speak or admitting to really poor optimization.

Disk space is cheap (PC), I'm happy to see they didn't get lazy and make it x32. Hopefully it'll eat up all the RAM I throw at it. The only think I'll say about the "recommended" free HD space, is with recommendations that large, hopefully the hand textures look better in the final game than they have in the demo shots. Everything else looks good.

Cost of space doesn't matter. The fact remains that there's no reason for a shooter to have a space requirement anywhere near 50GB on any platform. Especially when it doesn't really look better than games 1/3 of its size.

It's just a recommendation at this point. When it's released it'll be interesting to see the actual footprint. If it's audio and the quality is high enough, I don't care. If it's textures uncompressed and the game loads faster, I don't care. Optimization is great, but we've been doing that for years, have all this power on our desks, and very little utilizes it to actually, deliver. If dumping it on a bunch of disk space makes it perform and deliver a great experience, I just don't care anymore. I hear what you're saying, but I just want games to start living up to the hype. We're just now getting everyone to start coding x64, utilizing available memory, DX12 is just now promising parallelism to take advantage of multicore CPUs, sometime 2015. I just want a great experience delivered.

Uncensored Wolfenstein: The New Order will be geo-locked on PC

 

International versions of Wolfenstein: The New Order are forbidden within Germany due to the use of Nazi imagery in the game, and as a result developer Bethesda is geo-locking versions on Windows PC so they cannot be activated in the country.

 

Bethesda details this decision to geo-lock the game on its official blog. Geo-locking, which is a method of selecting what countries can access content, was implemented on the basis of legal advice and industry standard practice, writes a Bethesda representative, adding that the international version also won't be available for sale in Austria.

 

While Germany offers cultural exemptions on the use of Nazi content in films, current legislation in the country does not extend to video games. "A violation may result in confiscation of the Game, a high financial penalty or up to three years in prison. Any person involved and/or responsible for such violation may be prosecuted and sentenced, including officers and employees of companies involved," write Bethesda.

 

The German release of Wolfenstein: The New Order only censors Nazi content, but violence levels remain the same across both versions of the game.

Wolfenstein: The New Order is slated to release on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on the same day. Pre-orders for all platforms include beta access to the new Doom. For more on the game, read our recent hands-on impressions with the title and publisher Bethesda's commissioning of an original German-language pop music soundtrack for the alternate history.

      Gartner predicts in-use global devices will hit 6.2 billion this year
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Gartner has predicted that in-use devices including PCs, tablets, and mobile phones, will reach 6.2 billion units this year. According to the firm, the COVID-19 pandemic has changed device usage patterns and is ultimately increasing the number of devices that each person has.

      According to data from the firm, the 6.2 billion figure is set to rise by a further 3.2% in 2021 reaching 6.4 billion units. The biggest loser as a result of the pandemic is desktop PCs which are expected to decline from 522 million in 2020 to 470 million in 2022, however, the usage of laptops and tablets will increase by 8.8% and 11.7% respectively as they’re preferred by people working from home.

      Image via Gartner Commenting on the data, Ranjit Atwal, senior research director at Gartner, said:

      In addition to laptops and tablets doing well in 2020, smartphones are expected to see an in-use increase of 1% this year following a decline of 2.6% last year. The analyst said that lower-priced 5G handsets will encourage people to upgrade their smartphone or finally make the shift from a feature phone.

      Krafton launches top-down mini-game POBG inside PUBG
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      In honour of April Fool's Day, companies around the globe have celebrated the day with fake products and ridiculous announcements. At first sight, one might think that the announcement of the game titled PlayerOmnom's Battlegrounds, or POBG as most people are calling it, is one such prank.

      On the contrary, the creator of the wildly popular battle royale title PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds says so otherwise. Krafton has released an official statement authenticating that POBG is indeed real. PUBG's makers are currently offering players a chance to play POBG, which they are jokingly claiming to be the inspiration for the main game.

      Players can enjoy the title in the form of a mini-game within the PC version of PlayerUknown's Battlegrounds. A gag trailer for the newly unveiled game-within-a-game can be seen below:

      The mini-game is available for a short period of time. PUBG players can play the top-down shooter through the lobby of the game. PC users will be able to play POBG starting from today until April 12.

      Meanwhile, console owners have not been left out of the April Fool's special release. PUBG players on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms will be able to play POBG through the main game's lobby from April 8 through April 19, 2021.

      PS Plus games for April revealed, Oddworld: Soulstorm and more
      by Namerah Saud Fatmi

      The month of March concludes today and the video games for PlayStation Plus in April 2021 have been announced. The monthly gaming subscription from Sony offers its subscribers two free games for the PS4 and one free title for the PS5 every month.

      The next installment in the Oddworld series launches on April 6 next week. As announced previously, Oddworld: Soulstorm will be joining the PS Plus roster upon release. It will be the only free game for the PlayStation 5, and the offer does not cover the PlayStation 4 version of the title. The upcoming PS5 title will feature next-gen features such as feeling Abel's heartbeat levels thanks to haptic feedback on the DualSense controller.

      Meanwhile, the two PS4 games slated to arrive on the PS Plus library will be the action-adventure survival horror title Days Gone and third-person shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War. Subscribers can claim April's titles starting April 6 and ending on May 3.

      Last month's freebies included two games for the PS4, one for the PS5 and one for PS VR. These were Final Fantasy VII Remake, Remnant: From the Ashes, Maquette, and Farpoint respectively. If you're a PlayStation Plus member, you still have until April 5 to claim them, as well as Destruction All-Stars, which has been available for two months.

      Games on Xbox Backward Compatibility program gain cloud play support
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Microsoft today announced an expansion to its Backward Compatibility program's catalog, and it's not an injection of new titles. The company is beginning to introduce cloud play support for its original Xbox and Xbox 360 titles on Android phones and tablets.

      "Today we’re embarking on a new journey for the backward compatibility program: Taking it to the cloud," revealed the company today. "Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can now tap into a collection of favorites from the past in a whole new way — right on mobile devices, turning them into retro handheld game systems."

      The first group of games gaining the capability includes quite a few hits including Elder Scrolls III and IV, Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie, Fallout New Vegas, Perfect Dark, Gears 2, 3, Judgement, and more, totalling 16 additions, with some even having official touch controls.

      The company will keep expanding this list going forward as well. See the games gaining cloud play support today below:

      Microsoft said the addition of games from previous Xbox generations to cloud play "has been one of the most requested features by the community." Also, thanks to the newer hardware that the games are running on, quicker loading times and better frame rates are expected as well.
