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.
Did you enjoy the Closed Beta? Did you get your beta key?
Just playing a bit on Chapter 4 and seeing how the PS4 PRO can handle the 4k res. Sadly video capture on the PRO doesn’t go 4k…
Oh yes, and spoilers ahead.
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.
Good times, the Remastered Edition of Day of the Tentacle is now available on gog.com, for a 10% discount!
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.
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.
So tomorrow is the launch of The Division, the upcoming online open world third-person shooter role-playing video game developed by Ubisoft Massive, Red Storm Entertainment, Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Annecy.
In anticipation of tomorrow’s launch, here are two amazing trailers released in the past days, to get you in the mood:
Are you looking forward to the game? I sure as Hell am 🙂
As some of you know, I love cooking. And I love anything pizza and bread related. Recently, I perfected my garlic dough balls recipe, so I thought I’d share it with you.
For the dough balls:
- 500g bread flour
- 10g fresh yeast* or one sachet of dry yeast
- 5g garlic granules
- 5g onion granules
- 5g dried basil
- about 200ml lukewarm water
- 2 tbsp olive oil
For the coating and the glaze:
- semolina flour, for dusting
- 3 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 20g – 30g butter
- 1 tsp dried oregano
* if you can, many larger supermarkets in the UK that have a bakery usually part with a bit of yeast if you ask nicely
Remember this issue? Well, Frontier have finally responded to a ~ 270 page long thread on their forums about the Steam key issue. Community Manager Edward Lewis wrote:
Some breaking news for you:
We’ll soon be offering Steam keys to anyone who bought Elite: Dangerous from the EliteDangerous.com store who would like a key, and to anyone who buys the game from our store in the future.
We always appreciate it when you buy direct from our store because it means we can put more into supporting and developing Elite: Dangerous, but we know a number of long-time players and backers like to play through Steam and we think it’s fair everyone has that option, not just new players.
Elite: Dangerous runs on Frontier’s servers, so we’ve been working with Valve to give you a way to seamlessly connect your Steam and existing Frontier accounts in a way that’s easy. It’s coming soon. From May 28 you’ll be able to generate a Steam key from your account page, and we’ll have full instructions right here on the forums closer to the time.
The team really has been working hard on this one, and we’re all super happy to finally have an answer for you. Thanks for bearing with us and thanks for playing, as always.
Edit: This applies to Kickstarter backers, too.
Good news everyone! 😀
