Let's talk about video game stuff.
“Enter 25 words or less about your favourite pizza topping for a chance to win!” We’ve seen these sorts of competitions before that supposedly reward your creativity when, in all likelihood, it’ll be randomly drawn anyway. Not so for NVIDIA, which has taken the concept of writing to win to another level, with the aid of interactive fiction writer Emily Short. Together they’ve produced “Ultimate Quest” a text adventure about a “journey to the far side of possible”.
AMD and Nvidia are at it again. The two reigning champs in the market for video game graphics have been fighting since late last month when some performance issues on the PC version of Watch Dogs kicked up a fresh controversy. And given that AMD is still talking about the issue publicly, it doesn’t look like things are going to settle down anytime soon.
Despite lingering tensions between AMD and Nvidia over the latter’s close relationship with major game developers, Ubisoft is extending its partnership with Nvidia to cover its biggest upcoming PC titles. Ubisoft announced the partnership in a press release today, saying that it is working closely with Nvidia’s GameWorks program to develop four of its most highly anticipated games: Assassin’s Creed: Unity, The Crew, Far Cry 4 and The Division.
If you wanted NVIDIA’s G-Sync smoothing tech in your monitor when it was announced, you had about nil and buckleys chance of getting what you were after. Now that Computex 2014 is in full-swing, however, we’re finally getting some results with Asus bringing a compatible gaming monitor to the market.
AMD and Nvidia have for years been locked in a struggle for dominance in the graphics card market, but this week that competition spilled over into something a lot nastier. Instead of competing over specs and release dates, AMD’s Robert Hallock has told Forbes that Nvidia’s Gameworks program — which lets developers implement a range of “exclusive” graphical features in games — is “a clear and present threat to gamers”.
Set in an alternate reality techno-dystopian Chicago, Watch Dogs hit every gamer’s Christmas wishlist after appearing at E3 2012. The open world hackfest wowed onlookers with its urban stealth action and its seemingly ‘next-gen’ graphics. Unfortunately, a month before its November 2013 release the game was delayed for another six months — the short-term blowout of which caused Ubisoft’s stock to drop some 40 per cent.
Last month, Nvidia teased the upcoming release of the original Portal for its Tegra 4-powered Shield gaming portable. Good news — Portal is available on Google Play today. Better news — so is Half-Life 2.
With the arrival of Mantle and the more recent announcement of DirectX 12, PC gaming has been pushed back into the limelight. Timely then, was the PAX East panel “The Incredible Future of PC Gaming”, which saw Star Citizen head man Chris Roberts, along with representatives from NVIDIA and Oculus VR, give their perspectives on where the platform is heading.
