Here I’ve recorded a bit of gameplay from Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon – Wildlands. I joined the closed Beta this weekend and was thoroughly impressed by it – it runs smooth, it works well in 4K….. I’m looking forward to the release!

The game was recorded on a GTX 1080, 4k, using a very high preset.

About the game: The game is set in Bolivia, which has become increasingly unstable as the Santa Blanca drug cartel gains more power and influence to the point where Bolivia has become the world’s largest producer of cocaine. The rise in power of these drug cartels concerns the United States Government, as Santa Blanca’s influence has begun to spread beyond Bolivia. The last straw comes when a bomb targets the US embassy in La Paz and its intended target, DEA agent Ricky Sandoval, is kidnapped and tortured by Santa Blanca. As a result, the United States Army dispatches an elite special operations unit called “the Ghosts” to destroy the cartel and reveal the connection between Santa Blanca and the local government.

The amazing people behind Ninja Gaiden have released a new gameplay trailer for their upcoming game Nioh.

Visually Nioh looks quite similar to Ninja Gaiden or Ominusha, which has always been quite nice. However, this time round gameplay is (very Souls-y) reliant on your stamina meter, ensuring that you keep a close watch on it as you plan your strike or dodge.

See for yourselves:

It does even have a bit of a Bloodborne feel to it, from a defense point of view, while at the same time following the aggressive play style of Dark Souls. Note that the UI and use of D-Pad also play homage to the Souls series.

It will be interesting to see how this game progresses over the next months, and how it’ll stand apart from the Souls series.

Don’t know what this game is about?

Originally released by LucasArts in 1993 as a sequel to Ron Gilbert’s ground breaking Maniac Mansion, Day of the Tentacle is a mind-bending, time travel, cartoon puzzle adventure game in which three unlikely friends work together to prevent an evil mutated purple tentacle from taking over the world! Now, over twenty years later, Day of the Tentacle is back in a remastered edition that features all new hand-drawn, high resolution artwork, with remastered audio, music and sound effects (which the original 90s marketing blurb described as ‘zany!’)

19 years after its initial release, the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME) has completed its transition to a free and Open Source model.

Mame is free and open source

The development team behind it have spent the last 10 months trying to contact all people that contributed to MAME as developers and external contributors and get information about desired license.  As a result, over 90% (including core files) of files are now available under the 3-Clause BSD License, but the project as a whole is distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public License, version 2 or later (GPL-2.0+), since it contains code made available under multiple GPL-compatible licenses.
