flying-tigers-shadows-over-china-logoFlying Tigers: Shadows Over China prepares for multi-lingual release

As Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China gets ready for international release, a decent number of translations are being prepared for implementation courtesy of today’s “Lingua Franca” update. Soon, air-combat action gamers in Germany, France, Poland, Spain, China, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Russia, Brazil, and more countries, can take to the skies in their native language.

On a side note, the Lingua Franca moniker was chosen as a name for the final English update as the term fittingly means “a language or dialect used to make communication possible between people who do not share a native language”.

Launched on Steam’s Early Access programme in August 2015, Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China is approaching final release.

Update details as follows…

  • Strings: Finalized English-language strings in preparation for translation and the upcoming multi-lingual/international release.
  • Performance: 3D-renderer now optimized for low-end PCs, circa +30% more efficient occlusion culling, resulting in lower stress on bandwidth.
  • UX: New default. Players can now toggle the free-roaming Panoramic Camera by holding Left ALT and moving the mouse to look around (if playing on MOUSE+KEYBOARD, for example).
  • GUI: Updated text-system for multi-player lobby and console/log output strings.
  • Aircraft: Implemented cockpits for amphibious fighter planes A6M2-N “Rufe” and SC-1 “Seahawk”.
  • Audio/Music: Updated multiplayer lobby, mission result, and main theme tracks.

verdun-logoToday the ‘ladies of hell’ have arrived… The Highlanders joined the trench warfare!

The Scottish were no stranger to war, and when the call to arms came in 1914, a relatively large number of Scottish young men eagerly joined the ranks of the British in Belgium. Wearing their traditional kilts, they performed many aggressive scouting maneuvers, often finding themselves in the thick of savage battles such as Loos and Arras. They suffered a staggering number of casualties as a result, but were nevertheless undeterred and soon earned the nicknamed the “ladies from hell”.

The Scottish squad will perform the role of aggressive scouting in Verdun. They are armed with their distinctive Pattern 1914 Enfield, a five-round “dog-leg” bolt handle rifle ideal for marksmen. The rifle combines the elements of the famous German Mauser, the five-round internal box magazine, with some Lee-Enfield features. Compared to the standard Lee-Enfield, the Pattern 1914 was more accurate and durable, though heavier as well.

Watch the trailer here.

The Scottish squad has been added to the game Verdun for free on Steam today and is expected on the PS4 by the end of the month!

tigers-on-the-hunt-kurskOn July 1943, the German war machine had the chance to deal a mortal blow to the Red Army. After the defeat at Stalingrad, it was necessary to regain the initiative and secure the Eastern front. For this purpose, the German High Command massed a huge quantity of Panthers and Tigers tanks in proximity of the Kursk salient, hoping to destroy the bulk of the Russian forces in this area.

But the Soviets, knowing in advance the Hitler’s plan, created over 190 miles of depth defense to stop the Panzerwaffe and they moved their armored forces in reserve for the counter-attack.

The largest tank battle of the entire Second World War was about to commence…

Tigers on the Hunt: Kursk is a DLC containing three Campaign Game Scenarios for Tigers on the Hunt, focused on the key operations during Operation Citadel. This nice addition features a different type of gameplay from the original base game, giving the players a more challenging experience!

A Campaign Game Scenario is a much larger scenario with a lot of units on a large map. The battle lasts generally over several days and nights before the Campaign Game winner is called. To do this the Game Turns are divided into portions for Day (8 Game Turns) and Night (4 Game Turns). See more information on how it works on the official product page here.

Following the steps of the base game, Tigers on the Hunt: Kursk will make you toiling for every inch conquered, fighting against an unforgiving AI!

Tigers on the Hunt: Kursk will be available soon! Check its official product page for further information.

AMD has released the latest version of its Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Edition. The reason these are not marked 17.1, after January 2017, is because they’re just WHQL-signed versions of the 16.12.2 beta drivers released in December 2016, and as such feature an identical change-log.

You can download the Radeon Software Crimson ReLive Drivers version 16.12.2 here.

msi-z270-xpower-gaming-titaniumBy Hilbert Hagedoorn @ Guru3D

As we plow through our many Z270 motherboards reviews we have looked at budget, mainstream but also we need to look at high-end the enthusiast class. That’s where we meet the MSI Z270 XPOWER GAMING Titanium. A breathtaking motherboard with metal colored coating, extra overclock features, DDR4 boost functions not one, not two but three M.2. slots and just so much more. Titanium edition – it probably is the most interesting looking motherboard released ever thanks to a new PCB coating. Combined with a few extra’s and an overall high class build MSI might have a true winner here. A motherboard that promises to deliver a high amount of features and provide that Sky- or Kaby Lake processor the full infrastructure is needs for a kick-ass gaming PC.
