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.

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.

      Alan Wake Remastered comparison trailer reveals significant visual upgrades
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Remedy Entertainment revealed a detailed comparison between Alan Wake Remastered and the original Xbox 360 version. As evidenced by the trailer posted below, the game not only receives higher resolution rendering, but also adds better textures, lighting, and advanced features like reflections.

      This is the first time the title will be available on PlayStation systems, with PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 getting the enhanced version. It's also coming to PC and Xbox. Luckily, the wait isn't too long because it's launching on October 5, 2021.

      Alan Wake focuses on the titular character as he battles shadow-like creatures using his flashlight — and guns — as weapons. The game is regarded as a cult classic nowadays and it's beloved on PC and Xbox platforms.

      Alan Wake Remastered features the base game and The Signal and The Writer story expansions. There's also going to be developer commentary track by the game's Creative Director Sam Lake.

      Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One September update focuses on remote play and game discovery
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Jonathan Hildebrandt, the Principal Program Manager of Xbox Experiences, detailed what players can expect with the September console update on Xbox Wire. This month's update lets you access games on PC through the Xbox app, introduces Play Later discovery, a new Microsoft Edge browser, and a host of other changes. You can read more about them below.

      Xbox Cloud Gaming is now available through the Xbox app on PC for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members in almost two dozen countries. Keep in mind that this feature is still in beta. You can now access your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One consoles on PC through remote play with the Xbox app. Remote play is different from Xbox Cloud Gaming because it requires you to own the hardware. Play Later discovery allows you to make your own list of Xbox Game Pass games. You can save any game you're interested in on the list and play it later. Microsoft Edge is getting updated on Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One to make it faster and more secure. It seems like the updates are already available to a number of Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One owners. Be sure to check your console's settings if you haven't already, and download the latest version of the Xbox app through your PC's Microsoft Store.

      Select Insiders can now go back to using Xbox 360 gamerpics on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S
      by Asher Madan

      Even though we're two console generations past the Xbox 360, many gamers remember those days fondly, despite the "Red Ring of Death" that plagued earlier devices. Lately, a slew of Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S owners have been asking Microsoft for a way to go back to their Xbox 360 gamerpics.

      Well, Xbox Engineering Lead Eden Marie took notice and delivered. Today, she said that Xbox Insiders in the Alpha - Skip Ahead ring would see a new option in the "Change gamerpic" section of their profiles.

      Your Xbox 360 gamerpic should appear there, and you'll be able to select it. Luckily, Eden also fixed how they display on modern consoles a few weeks ago so it should look great on your TV.

      If you wanted to use that old Master Chief gamerpic from Halo 3, now's your chance.

      Halo and Star Wars get major discounts in this week's Deals with Gold
      by Asher Madan

      Every week, Microsoft and select publishers discount a number of titles for a weekly Deals with Gold sale. This week, games from the Assassin's Creed, Forza, Halo, and Star Wars franchises are available for substantially less. Below, you'll find the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 games with their respective discounts. The deals and games marked with an asterisk are only valid for Xbox Live Gold members, so you'll need an active paid subscription for the additional discount.

      Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One
      Xbox 360
      Many of the games are also backward compatible so you can play them on your Xbox Series X|S or Xbox One. If you still only have an Xbox 360, you're out of luck this week because the selection is the slimmest I've ever seen.

      Which titles are you interested in? Did you buy any? Let us know in the comments below.
