In the world of naval battles it’s typically Battleship or bust, but not any more — Let’s wave hello to World of Warships, the naval battle game that’s currently in development from Wargaming.

There are tons of different battleships out there, but today the developers of World of Warships sat down to look at one type, aircraft carriers.

How will aircraft carriers impact gameplay in World of Warships? Well, those carriers bring a unique set of gameplay to the fight. They carry different types of warplane squadrons; Dive Bombers, Torpedo Bombers, Scouts and Fighter Planes. Each type can be launched from an aircraft carrier and can turn the course of battle with use.

This “Discover Your Power” video promotes Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare with some live-action, because it is apparently difficulty to get Hollywood directors like Peter Berg to work with video game characters, who do not take kindly to feedback. Word is: “Suit up and unleash the raw power of the advanced soldier in the live action trailer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Directed by Peter Berg and starring Taylor Kitsch and Emily Ratajkowski, fight your way through a series of enemy forces and discover new movements, capabilities and weaponry along the way in this heart-racing journey through 2059 Lagos.”

All of Paris is your playground in Assassin’s Creed: Unity. All of it. We can’t tell you exactly what you’re seeing in the trailer (we want to leave you with some big surprises), but we can tell you it’s going to blow your mind. Get your first look at Unity’s time anomaly, a brand new feature in the Assassin’s Creed universe.

Assassin’s Creed: Unity will be available on November 11 on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. You still have a chance to pre-order the game and receive the Chemical Revolution single-player mission. You can also pick up the Season Pass for access to the Dead Kings campaign and the standalone game Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, starring Shao Jun from Assassin’s Creed Embers. is excited to share another of the vehicles that will be found in Armored Warfare – a video of the American M1128 MGS Stryker Armored Fighting Vehicle.

In the early seventies, the Swiss company MOWAG developed a new armored personnel carrier and multipurpose wheeled chassis. The designers carefully considered every detail and nuance when deciding where to place the armor, what shape the body should be, as well as the ergonomics and the chassis. This new armored vehicle was called the Piranha and it became a benchmark for all future wheeled armored vehicles. It inspired the Canadian BMP LAV III, which then served as a basis for American military vehicle research.

The Stryker, a modified and improved Piranha, underwent serious competition to get into the U.S. army. The Stryker was adopted as a universal platform for a whole range of vehicles, including the M1128 MGS AFV, with heavy armament mounted on the remote-controlled turret.

The Stryker is often criticized because of its high cost and excessive weight. But its high speed, which is excellent for a wheeled armored vehicle, its large load capacity, its ability to mount different weapons and its additional armor justify its weight and price.

The M1128 MGS is fitted with a 105mm M68 gun, which has similar firepower to the M60 main battle tank gun. Armor plating provides protection from autocannon fire.

In Armored Warfare, the M1128 MGS fighter tank is one of the most powerful AFV’s and it occupies a worthy position among Tier 8 vehicles. The Stryker can move quickly and fire rapidly with high precision, even while moving, inflicting significant damage to the enemy. However, it does not have the maneuverability of treaded vehicles.

Although the M1128 MGS has relatively weak armor, its advantage lies in its high movement speed, and it shouldn’t be underestimated on the field of battle. The M1128 MGS Stryker is a worthy rival for main battle tanks and will undoubtedly appeal to all lovers of wheeled vehicles.

Live now, the latest free update for Rome II adds the festival of Lemuria to the game and a new seasonal challenge, Nightmare Mode!

Lemuria was an ancient feast during which restless spirits were exorcised from the home with the alternate offering of beans and then clashing of cooking pots. Perhaps an early Roman version of Trick or Treat?

Nightmare Mode can be toggled on from the game options menu, causing your troops to suffer horrifying visions in battle. Harpies descend from the skies as a terrifying atmosphere envelopes your forces. Assailed by such apparitions it is no surprise that your soldiers will find the enemy extremely frightening!

Any generals skilled enough to complete a Campaign battle in Nightmare Mode will earn a new Steam achievement and the adoration of their peers. May the gods help you if you try to complete a whole campaign…

We review the GALAX GeForce GTX SOC edition. SOC is short for Super Overclocked, and that certainly is the case. Armed with sturdy looks, based on a custom PCB and a third party cooler the guys behind KFA2 and Galaxy introduce this gaming weaponry. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. Oh and hey, it overclocks nicely as well as we even pass 1500 MHz on the GPU boost frequency.
