kurskJujubee S.A. has published a new official trailer for the first ever documentary-adventure game “Kursk”. It’s worth noting that it was rendered in real-time, using the game’s engine, and was not enhanced. As such, it showcases the actual current state of the game’s quality, which will only continue to be polished by the team responsible for this historic title until its official release.

Kursk is the first ever documentary-adventure game. It will focus on the tragedy of the Russian atomic submarine K-141 Kursk, which sank in the Barents Sea in August 2000. The game’s plot will be largely based on facts, making the player a witness to dramatic events that shook the world at the time. The game will be available for PC, Mac, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. More information about the game can be found at the games official website.

command-live-commonwealth-collisionFor decades, the conflict between India and Pakistan has been one of the most dangerous for its ramifications ever occurred. The two countries have always tried to switch the balance of power in their favour, seeking alliances among other nations of the area and increasing their military expenditure steadily.

The clash has reached recently a new escalation as a border incident has caused the death of some visiting British officers. Pakistan’s waffling diplomacy angers the British military and public, and as the subcontinent edges closer to war, London has New Delhi’s back. But Beijing has Islamabad’s as well, with waves of modern Chinese equipment being “purchased” by Pakistan and being crewed by either “Volunteers” or “contractors” that mysteriously “quit” the PLA.

order-of-battle-sandstormOrder of Battle: Sandstorm is the new DLC for Order of Battle. It brings the series to North Africa for the first time, putting you in the shoes of Erwin Rommel, the Desert Fox himself, commander of the Axis forces in North Africa between 1941 and 1943.

In Sandstorm, the upcoming new expansion for Order of Battle, the Italian army obviously plays a very important role. As commander in chief of the Axis forces in North Africa, you will be leading a joint army of German and Italian troops.

The DLC’s developer The Artistocrats have released a glimpse of the Italian Armed Forces focusing on some of the new units available to Italy in Order of Battle: Sandstorm. New screenshots are shared too!

coolermaster-masterair-ma621pBy Kyle Bennett @ HardOCP

The AMD Ryzen Threadripper is a beast when it comes to overclocking and cooling. Cooler Master steps into the ring with the first Threadripper-specific air cooler that we have come across. We have put it through the paces here on our highly overclocked and overvolted 1950X. Does the MasterAir MA621P have what it takes?

arctic-liquid-freezer-120-w-nzxt-kraken-g12By Josh Jackson @ Pure Overclock

Typically, you don’t just add a CLC to a graphics card, but NZXT designed the Kraken G12 bracket for just the occasion. Of course you need a compatible CLC in order to make it work, and that’s where Arctic comes to play. I’ve looked into finding what I thought would be the best CLC for the purpose of using on a GPU, and my research led me to choosing the Liquid Freezer 120. It was pure speculation at the time, but the combination of two included fans, an extra thick radiator, and a convenient 120mm size seemed like the perfect fit.

NVIDIA has releases GeForce 397.31 WHQL drivers. The drivers see NVIDIA discontinue regular support for 32-bit versions of Windows. It also sheds support for GPUs based on NVIDIA “Fermi” GPU architecture (GeForce 400 series and 500 series). The drivers also add first official support for NVIDIA RTX real-time ray-tracing technology. To use it, you’ll need a GPU based on NVIDIA’s next-generation “Volta” architecture (such as the $3,000 TITAN V), the latest major version of Windows 10, and Microsoft DXR developer package. The drivers also add support for Vulkan 1.1 API. Besides the above three, GeForce 397.31 WHQL is game-ready for “BattleTech” and “FrostPunk.”

You can download the new GeForce 397.31 WHQL drivers from GeForce Experience and


NVIDIA GeForce 397.31 WHQL Drivers Put GTX 1060-Powered Systems Into Endless Restart Loop

TechPowerUp! is reporting that numerous GTX 1060 owners have reported on the official NVIDIA forums that they were unable to complete the installation of the 397.31 drivers. Users were prompted to restart their systems to complete the installation process, but once they have done so, they were presented with the exact screen over and over again putting their systems into an endless restart loop. While NVIDIA is investigating the bug, GTX 1060 owners are encouraged to roll back to a previous version of the drivers as a stop-gap solution. The workaround consists of rebooting the affected system in safe mode and running Display Driver Uninstaller (DDU) to completely remove the 397.31 drivers. Users can then proceed to install the previous 391.35 drivers normally.

arma-3-tanksBy Ian Boudreau @ Wargamer

One of the things that keeps me coming back to ArmA 3 is its stern-faced commitment to realism in an unchangeably goofy video game world. There’s something David Lynchian about the whole affair – you’re never quite sure whether the developers are completely earnest or if you’ve just gotten a wry wink at the absurdity of it all.

Take the latest Tanks DLC package. I’ll run through the vital statistics later, but there’s such a funny juxtaposition of an obsessively intense focus on simulating real-world military operations with the realization that a lot of what happens in the military isn’t any fun. While I was gleefully thundering around in my Rhino MGS, a tank destroyer introduced in this new pack, some incoming mortar fire blew out my front two passenger-side tires.

The damage model is detailed enough so that this has a pretty severe impact on handling. But then I got out of the Rhino, clicked a prompt, and had the tires back in action in about 25 seconds total.
