Our videos of The Long Dark

The Long Dark has been available on Steam Early Access for a little while now, but since we sadly never got any answer from the dev team, we finally decided to buy the game on the very first day of the Steam sales. As you probably know, The Long Dark is a survival game in which you have to fight against the unforgiving weather and the local fauna to stay alive as long as possible. Only the sandbox mode is available for the moment, so all you can do is freely explore the open environment, loot everything you can and see the next day. A story mode will be added in the future, which will definitely add some incentive to play the game if you're anything like us. Indeed, as promising as the game looks in its current state, it needs more than mere survival to make it truly appealing to us in the long run. Now if you're into survival games, go for it, Hinterland Studio's title has a superb atmosphere and it manages to convey an incredible sense of loneliness and despair.

Watch_Dogs PC 6 months after launch

Watch_Dogs is back in the spotlight 6 months after its initial release for two main reasons. First, the WiiU version is finally available and it unsurprisingly is technically limited, just like the 360/PS3 versions. Secondly, after the ACU fiasco, Ubisoft just announced that everyone who bought the game would be offered the first DLC for free and those who purchased the Season Pass would get one game for free among the following ones: Rayman Legends, Just Dance 2015, The Crew, Far Cry 4 and of course Watch_Dogs. That's why we decided to capture the PC version yesterday, to see if our GTX 970 could handle it better today. Playing on ultra settings (except for high textures and temporal SMAA) made it impossible to maintain a steady 60 fps, but the game still looks very good, no matter what some people said back then.

JonZ is back with a trailer

JonZ is not just a talented guy, he's also very kind as he just sent us his latest Project CARS trailer. The timing could not be any better since we just started showing the game ourselves, but as the saying goes, great minds think alike. Another very well done trailer showcasing the impressive rain effects of the game.

More Project CARS on Gamersyde

As we wanted to show you how Project CARS ran when in the middle of a race, we tried to capture some footage with 8 opponents on two different tracks. We also tried to activate MSAA and you can see it clearly affects performance in both videos. Considering the maximum number of AI drivers you can add (more than 20 if we're not mistaken) and how potentially demanding weather effects can be, we truly doubt many PC players will be able to play the game fully maxed out at release, even with powerful rigs. Now hopefully the months that are still left before the final release will allow Slightly Mad Studios to optimize their title more, and also to fix the handling of some of the cars, which can be pretty frustrating at the moment. On the bright side though, we felt that AI was much smarter in the game than in other racing titles, which is definitely good news for those wanting to stick to a single player experience.

Project CARS PC ultra videos

Since Project CARS has been delayed and we haven't shown the game in action for a while, here's a chance to catch up on the development. We decided to make a good use of our new capture PC to get you some Ultra settings gameplay (SMAA High) running at 1080p/60fps. Because we know it well enough, we went for the iconic Nürburgring in the rain with a Bac Mono, and believe us it was no piece of cake with all assists off. More on the game in the weeks to come, so stay tuned.
Note: The hands of the pilot sometimes shake because of the brutal reactions of force feedback of our Fanatec wheel, whose rotation was set to 350° instead of 900°. Our mistake.

We reviewed LittleBigPlanet 3

As the final exclusive in Sony’s 2014 PS4 line-up, LittleBigPlanet 3 is a bit of an outsider. After all, the series has never really managed to hit it big with with the PlayStation audience at large. Yet with its beautiful artistically original universe we can’t help but feel a bit of disappointment that it never managed to join the likes of Naughty Dogs and Sony Santa Monica’s worlds. Despite that, there’s no denying its irresistible charm, unique universe, unforgettable music, and impressive level creation suite. Left in the hands of Sumo Digital (Virtua Tennis, Sonic and All-Stars Racing and even Forza Horizon 2 on Xbox 360), this third episode hits both the PS3 and PS4 at the same time but does it have enough to convince those still reluctant to jump in? Hopefully we can help with our videos and verdict!
