For RTS fans on the lookout for exciting new titles that aren’t just regurgitated content from over milked franchises riding on the coattails of their once prestigious reputations, King Art Games’ Iron Harvest 1920+ may be the game to keep an eye on.

A number of PS3 owners purchased the console with ambitions to utilize the PS3 as a Linux PC, but this feature was unfortunately removed in 2010 via software update 3.21.
As many gamers claimed that they purchased the PS4 for the Other OS functionality, this subsequently resulted in a 6 year class action lawsuit with Sony opting to settle the suit back in June of this year.

Today at Oculus Connect, the company’s CEO, Brendan Iribe announced a new, much lower minimum requirement for running VR games using the Oculus Rift. This advancement is thanks to a technology called Asynchronous Spacewarp or ASW. This feature effectively allows a system to deliver a stable 45 frames per second, and then doubles it and fills in the gaps in order to hit the 90Hz target for a smooth VR experience. This is a very similar technique to the “Interleaved Reprojection” technology which is employed by the HTC Vive.Oculus Rift New Minimum Specifications Nvidia 960 or greater (down from Nvidia GTX 970 / AMD 290 equivalent or greater) Intel [...]

As hardware becomes more power efficient and compact, Steam Machines and other small form factor systems are slowly beginning to invade the living room. As a result, PC gamers have found themselves spending more time on the couch, and playing games on the TV.

Awhile back we had posted about our E3 hands on experience with the Stratus XL, SteelSeries’ answer to the developing [...]
