wolfenstein2-the-new-colossusBy Alice Bell @ VideoGamer

Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus is so far looking like a game of two parts: the fast, loud, fighting bit, all gunmetal grey and muzzle flash, and semi-regular spurts of claret; and the slow, quiet and well-observed one, where war veteran turned long arm of the resistance William ‘B.J.’ Blazkowicz takes in what’s happening to the world he once knew.

command-live-pole-positionsMatrix Games announce that Pole Positions, the sixth installment in the Command LIVE series, has been released. This new episode explores a scenario in which the United States have to conduct a dangerous operation against Russian infrastructure without being detected!

The militarization of the Arctic is in today’s lead stories, as the region is playing an important but underrated role in the fragile post Cold-War balance between Washington and Moscow. The access to areas previously hard to reach has convinced most coastal states to increase their claims in the region.

The United States, in particular, are worried by news of the great progress made by the Russians in the deployment of the SHELF’ underwater Sound Surveillance System (SOSUS), and experts say that we might expect a reaction to this threat.

Can this reaction trigger an open conflict?

AMD today released the latest update to their Radeon GPU drivers, the Crimson ReLive Edition 17.7.2. We took a detailed look at it which you can read here, and it is a fairly big update bringing a lot of added features- some of which were user requested such as additional settings and per-display color controls, and others aiming to improve user experience such as Enhanced Sync to lower game animation stutter and also input latency. There have also been improvements to ReLive streaming, as well as an addition of a new GPU Profiler tool for developers.

Note that AMD is no longer supporting Windows 8/8.1 with newer RX 400 and 500 series (and also upcoming RX Vega). When asked about this, AMD provided the following statement: “With the declining use of Windows 8.1 we have focused our efforts on providing the best experience on the operating systems that the vast majority of our users are now using. Although we no longer officially support Windows 8.1, users can try the Windows 7 driver on an “as-is” basis.
