Frostpunk release date announced

09 March 2018 - 06:49 PM



From the creators of 2014 indie masterpiece This War Of Mine comes another game about survival, Frostpunk. Imagine Mad Max but instead of sand filled wasteland and third person beat em up pimp my ride everything is cold, frozen and your objective is to build a city for your survivors to prevail, kinda like Mad Max had a baby with Sim City.



So, Frostpunk is a game about society survival and an unusual mixture of city builder, survival and society simulation. In an ultimately frozen world, people develop steam powered technology to oppose the overwhelming cold. The city ruler has to manage both the citizens and the infrastructure the citizens live in. The Leader’s tactical skills face challenges, frequently questioning morality and the basic foundation of what we consider an organized society. Here optimization and resource management often clash with empathy and thoughtful decision making. While city and society management consume most of the time, at some point exploration of outside world is necessary.



Oversee your society, manage resources and make difficult choices. But whatever you do, always remember the city must survive. Frostpunk takes on what people are capable of when pushed to the limits. It shows what society will do to survive and how it changes in the process. How survival in the end leaves us different beings. If worse, better, stronger, weaker or last but not least, more or less humane. Heat is life in this frozen wasteland and every decision comes with a cost. Give your people hope, make laws and think about your choices, because every single thing you do has weight to it. Will you allow child labor? Will you allow cannibalism in your society? How will you treat your wounded and ill? It is up to you.


Game is set to release on 24th of April this year and I have a strong feeling this one will be a good one.

Massive book about the history of PC RPG games for free

07 February 2018 - 06:19 PM

So a writer Felipe Pepe has been compiling a book about PC RPG games, enlisting developers and journalists from across the globe to write about everything from Ultima to Fallout 4. The book is out and you can get it in PDF format for free here: https://crpgbook.fil..._book_1-0-1.pdf


Across 528 pages you'll find information for about over 400 RPG titles from the early PLATO games to modern AAA releases, as well as hidden gems, curiosities and even fan translations. The reviews were written by a team of 115 volunteers from all around the globe from fans, modders, journalists, critics, indies and AAA developers.


So dig in RPG fans, old or new.

Emotions you could experience when building your first PC (we've all been there)

19 January 2018 - 11:53 AM

Remember when you decided to build yourself your first PC? Well, I do. You boot your first born up and use it extensively for a few days and suddenly a variety of new feelings hit you like a ton of bricks, BAM! I'd like to share some with you, so strap in and welcome aboard the anxiety train :)


The feelings are:


1. Sudden obsession with reading about PC parts and other people's PC building stories.I never thought I would care so much about motherboards, but somehow I've become addicted to the PC forums where people share their specs and ask all sorts of weird questions. Hmmmm, well I do want to know how that ant crawled in your monitor.


2. Realization that suddenly you need to care about PC ports. What do you mean FFXV was successfully ported from console to PC yet Red Dead Redemption 2 is not!? Wait, what do you mean some games aren't optimized for PC?


3. Anxiety over how hot your CPU is running. CPU-Z tells me it's running at 65C, is that too hot? Is my CPU going to melt?


4. Anxiety over whether the thermal paste is applied properly. Should I take the PC open and check the thermal paste? My cooler came with pre applied paste but I took the heatsink off at one point when I was troubleshooting, was I supposed to apply more? Should I order thermal paste and stick it on there? Are my fans working properly? AHHHH!


5. Anxiety that the PC would just randomly turn off. Well that would suck, wouldn't it.


6. Anxiety that the PSU might blow up and set your apartment building on fire. Is 600W enough? What if it isn't!? Do I need more?!!!??! *Hallucination kicks in. Starts hearing  weird sound coming from the PSU shroud*, turns out it's a bird pecking at the tree. It's fine, is it? :oki:

7.Anxiety that you’re not taking proper advantage of your machine. Turns out I bought a freesync monitor, which works with AMD, instead of a G-sync monitor, which works with Nvidia. And I have an Nvidia GTX 1080. So my games aren’t looking as good as they should. Which leads to.....


8. An insatiable desire to buy new things.




Which leads too.......


9. Paranoia that you bought the wrong things. Wait! should I have spent $200 more for an IPS screen? Or is TN fine? What do all of these things even mean?


10. Video game choice paralysis, because suddenly I can play pretty much anything ever made. Why not dive into The Witcher 3 again? Or maybe I should finally check out XCOM 2? What if I just download an old classic like Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and play around for a while? Or I could get an emulator and revisit one of those classic Mac games I used to love? Or or or or or or or.


11. Triumph over that paralysis, because instead I just spent an entire week playing Divinity Original Sin 2.


12. Realization that Divinity Original Sin 2 is one of the best games you’ve ever played. It was worth building a PC just for this.


13. Anxiety that Divinity Original Sin 2 doesn’t look as good as it could, even though it still looks incredible. When is that new monitor gonna get here already?


14. Sudden interest in other people’s PC problems. My friend just ordered a pre built PC that arrived broken, and as the proud builder of one (1) PC, I’m sure I can diagnose the problem!


15. And the last thing! Pride that even when you’re doing the most mundane and simple things on it, it’s on a machine that you built from scratch and nothing can compare with that. :glasses:

nVidia killing support for 32-bit operating systems

23 December 2017 - 04:36 PM

It's hard to imagine gaming on a PC without 64-bit OS. Today's games require minimum RAM requirements that are surpassing the amount of memory 32-bit systems can detect, but technically you can still pair new GPU's with a 32-bit OS without any serious bottlenecks. However in the case of nVidia cards that is not possible anymore. By the end of this year nVidia is killing the support for 32-bit systems, in other words if you own a 32-bit win 7/8/10 (or Linux) you won't be getting new driver updates for your GPU. The cards will work with the current version of nVidia drivers (390) but if by the 2019 they spot some bugs with the drivers they will release fixes for it.
