Steam Weekly Top Sellers - briefly
(hx) 09:22 PM CEST - May,31 2020 - Post a comment
Here are the ten top selling titles on Steam for the week as reported by Valve:
Sid Meier's Civilization VI - New Frontier Pass
Monster Train
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition
No Man's Sky

Red Dead Redemption 2
Halo: The Master Chief Collection
TSMC 5 nm+ Node Manufacturing Goes High-Volume in Q4 - tech
(hx) 02:36 PM CEST - May,31 2020 - Post a comment / read (1)
The DigiTimes report indicates that TSMC is preparing the 5 nm+ node for AMD Ryzen 4000 "Vermeer" series of CPUs. Originally planned for using the 7 nm+ node, the CPUs are supposedly ported to a smaller node, providing better transistor performance and lower power consumption. The Ryzen 4000 series of desktop processors were planned for launching later this year, however, being that the new information provided by DigiTimes suggests 5 nm+ node could be used, we can expect to see Zen 3 based processors sometime in early 2021. Despite the current world pandemic happening, TSMC is relentless and seems like it can not be stopped. Sources at DigiTimes have confirmed that the company will do High-Volume Manufacturing of the chips in Q4, meaning that we can expect first chips on the 5 nm+ node somewhere in the beginning of 2021. This is very good news as it reassures us that TSMC is untouched by the happenings in the world and that they will manage to deliver just fine.
This new non-VR mod turns Half-Life Alyx into classic FPS - mod&map
(hx) 10:12 AM CEST - May,31 2020 - Post a comment / read (9)
Contrary to the previous non-VR mod, this new one features all the classic weapons from Half-Life 2. Moreover, it disables some mechanics that were present in the VR version. For instance, you cannot teleport anymore. You also cannot grab ammo via telekinesis. To be honest, this is the perfect mod via which you can experience Half-Life Alyx without a VR headset. While it disables some gameplay mechanics, it finally allows you to play the game as a traditional non-VR first-person shooter. Movement is also smooth, and the head movement is similar to Half-Life 2. Additionally, players can still interact with the environment, and grab items (the same way they could in Half-Life 2).

Cyberpunk 2077 is in the final stretch of development - briefly
(hx) 10:06 AM CEST - May,31 2020 - Post a comment / read (5)
CD Projekt RED announced in its financial report that Cyberpunk 2077 has entered its final stretch of development. The game will come out on September 17th, 2020, and this development/status update more or less confirms that the game will meet that release date deadline.
CD PROJEKT RED is carrying out with the final stage of development of its most expansive RPG to-date: Cyberpunk 2077. The game features a vibrant, high-tech open world, where players assume the role of V – a cyberpunk who has recently migrated to the most dangerous metropolis of the future: Night City. Cyberpunk 2077 gameplay follows the rules of the Cyberpunk 2020 RPG system created by Mike Pondsmith.
In short, it seems that Cyberpunk 2077 will respect its planned release date and it will land on September 17 on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, Google Stadia and later also on PS5 and Xbox Series X.

Jujubee has announced that its new real-time strategy game, COVID: The Outbreak, will release today on Steam. In this game, you play the role of a global organization that has to deal with a global pandemic. Players will be able to issue decrees, manage resources, develop projects, and construct buildings. As the leader of the GHO your task is to contain the spread of a coronavirus and save humanity. In addition to crisis management, the game provides the players with information on how to behave in the event of an epidemic. Additionally, it provides countermeasures, and ways to protect yourselves. The game is based on the data published by WHO and on the information acquired from experts and consultants. Through your actions, you will be able to see how difficult it is to manage during a crisis. You’ll also see what impact various decisions can have on an effective fight against a global epidemic, which can be caused by listening to charlatans or the lack of appropriate medical equipment. Lastly, the virus in the game will adapt to your actions by means of mutation. Thus, players must predict and take into account its transmission abilities, time of incubation and drug resistance.

Xbox Series X backward compatible with 'thousands of games' at launch - briefly
(hx) 08:57 PM CEST - May,28 2020 - Post a comment / read (6)
Xbox Series X will be compatible with “thousands of games” from across the Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Xbox libraries at launch, Xbox Series X director of program management Jason Ronald detailed in an Xbox Wire post.

“Backwards compatible games run natively on the Xbox Series X hardware, running with the full power of the CPU, GPU, and the SSD,” Ronald said. “No boost mode, no downclocking, the full power of the Xbox Series X for each and every backward compatible game. “This means that all titles run at the peak performance that they were originally designed for, many times even higher performance than the games saw on their original launch platform, resulting in higher and more steady frame rates and rendering at their maximum resolution and visual quality. Backwards compatible titles also see significant reductions in in-game load times from the massive leap in performance from our custom NVME SSD which powers the Xbox Velocity Architecture.”

Xbox Series X also features a new high-dynamic-range imaging reconstruction technique, which enables the platform to automatically add HDR support to games. Ronald continued, “With all of the additional power and advancements of the Xbox Series X, the compatibility team now has a veritable playground of new capabilities to innovate and push the limits of game preservation and enhancement. The compatibility team has invented brand new techniques that enable even more titles to run at higher resolutions and image quality while still respecting the artistic intent and vision of the original creators. We are also creating whole new classes of innovations including the ability to double the frame rate of a select set of titles from 30 frames per second to 60 frames per second or 60 frames per second to 120 frames per second.”
