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.

Not the biggest fan of FPS' or the skin textures I see, but I love the atmosphere, the models, and killin' Nazis. Pre-ordered the Panzerhund Edition and the game.

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.

      BioShock and Control receive massive discounts in Xbox's Shocktober Sale
      by Asher Madan

Games from the BioShock and Darksiders 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.

      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. Even if you still only have an Xbox 360, this month you're in luck!

      Xbox Series X owners get 4K dashboard today
      by Asher Madan

      Today, Microsoft announced that the October Xbox Update is rolling out to console owners today. The patch includes Night Mode and other enhancements, but the standout feature has to be for Xbox Series X users.

      Beforehand, the Xbox Series X dashboard resolution was limited to 1080p to prevent performance issues with 4K games. However, it seems like the team has found a workaround. Now, the text is crisp and the game art looks incredibly clear at 4K resolution. However, there are still some interface elements that are 1080p, like the Xbox Series X|S Optimized logo and some icons like HDR Calibration. Hopefully, these will be updated soon because they're a little jarring to witness.

      If you simply update your console, you may not see the 4K resolution menu. In order to apply it, you have to go to Settings and change the resolution of your console to 1080p first, and then back to 4K. This should start rendering the dashboard at 4K. This is probably another bug that needs to be fixed.

      Aside from the 4K dashboard on Xbox Series X, all Xbox owners are getting Night Mode and Quick Settings changes. Night Mode allows you to dim the light on your display, the power button on your controller, and the power light on your console. You can also change the blue light filter this way.

      The Xbox Guide now includes a Quick Settings menu so you can customize your accessibility features. This is quite handy because you don't have to fish around in Settings anymore to open them.

      What feature are you looking forward to the most with the October Xbox Update? Let us know in the comments below.

      Forza Horizon 5 goes gold, requires 103 GB on most systems
      by Asher Madan

      Today, developer Playground Games announced that Forza Horizon 5, its upcoming open-world racing game, has gone gold. This means that only bug fixes remain before launch in November and discs will be printed soon. The title takes place in Mexico and features a number of graphical improvements over its predecessor.

      Since the game has gone gold, you can pre-load it on PC and Xbox. However, storage space is one important detail to keep in mind. On the majority of platforms, including Xbox Series X|S, you'll need 103 GB. However, you'll need another 13 GB on Xbox One. This may be related to compression differences between the two platforms.

      Xbox Series X|S: 103 GB Xbox One: 116 GB Windows: 103 GB Steam: 103 GB Forza Horizon 5 launches on November 9, 2021, for PC, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S. Xbox Game Pass subscribers are also gaining access on day one. Meanwhile, Premium Edition owners will be getting into the action four days early on November 5.
