Feature: Get your RTX cards at the ready

Here are all the confirmed ray tracing and DLSS games so far

Ray tracing is the big buzz word of 2020 in PC gaming, so we've created this list of all the confirmed ray tracing games you can play on PC right now, as well which this year's new PC games will get ray tracing support in the future. And because ray tracing tends to go hand in hand with Nvidia's performance-boosting DLSS tech these days, we've…

Feature: One Off The List

The 9 best road trips in PC games

Kick the tires, whistle at the paint job, spin the keys on your finger like a revolver and then shoot the car with the little laser of unlocking. It’s time to get back on the road. What’s that? Entire country in a state of unprecedented lockdown? I see. Well, lucky for you, we concern ourselves here only with pretend cars, the indoor joy of fictional…

Have You Played… Final Fantasy XV?

When I think back to the launch of Final Fantasy XV back in 2016, I still can't quite believe that Square Enix managed to get away with it all. Everyone might be kicking off now about separating the Final Fantasy VII Remake into multiple who-knows-how-many parts, but at least we know (hopefully) that they're all going to be actual games. If you wanted to understand…

The 9 tastiest dinners in games

Everyone’s a cook now, is that it? A few weeks in lockdown and you’re all suddenly artisan bakers and Bon Appétit Kitchen presenters? Sorry, I don’t buy it. Put the chickpeas down, Jeff. We all know what happens when you let things “simmer”. However, there is a world in which your cooking really does impress. Where it comes out of the pot scrumptious and hot…

Final Fantasy XV, Youngblood and a Bleeding Edge beta head to Xbox Game Pass for PC

Get in the car, punk. Xbox Game Pass for PC is about to pick up three new games, cramming Final Fantasy XV, Wolfenstein: Youngblood and Death's Gambit into the back seat of its subscription bandwagon. That's one banger, one bust, and one "huh, seems alright" jumping onto Game Pass' growing catalogue, still available at £1/$1 for three months if you're a first-time subscriber. But all…

Feature: The best games in the whole wide world

The 32 best PC games that demand to be played in ultrawide

There's an old saying in gaming monitor circles that once you've gone ultrawide, there's no going back. Indeed, having had the vast Samsung CRG9 hogging my desk for a bit last month, I'm inclined to agree. But what do games actually look like on a screen this wide? It's one thing looking at lovely wallpapers, but another thing entirely to have a game occupy your…

Feature: GPUs and HDR explained

What graphics card do I need for HDR and what PC games support it?

HDR on PC hasn't improved much in 2019. Despite there being more HDR gaming monitors than ever before, the very best gaming monitors for HDR continue to be quite expensive compared to non-HDR monitors, and the situation around Windows 10 support for it is still a bit of a mess. However, provided you're willing to fight through all that, then the next step on your path to…

Square Enix teases the future of Final Fantasy XV’s game engine with gorgeous RTX demo

Want a taste of what 'next-gen' graphics are going to look like? Well, the clever folks over at Square Enix's Luminous Productions studio (the wizards wot made Final Fantasy XV) have just released a brand new tech demo called 'Back Stage' doing just that. Made in collaboration with Nvidia, this real-time ray tracing demo isn't related to any particular game per se (or at least…

Feature: Liveblogging, but good

The Cheerer and the Jeerer – Square Enix’s show as it happened

Matt: This is it. The final blog down. Square Enix are about to tell us about what they're up to, and we've both reported to our liveblogging stations for the very last time. Both Cheerer and Jeerer have one more opportunity to don their respective masks of love and loathing, but who will take up each mantle? Actually, forget I asked. Jetlag has snuck up…

Final Fantasy XV concludes prematurely with its first and last story DLC

After thirteen years of development, the saga of Final Fantasy XV today draws to an abrupt close with the launch of its final story DLC, Episode Ardyrn. Square Enix had planned to release another three episodes after this, each focusing on a different character, but they cut that plan short and here we are at the end, my only friend, the end. Episode Ardyn focuses…

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT punching onto PC as free-to-play

Following the epic boyband road trip of Final Fantasy XV, Square Enix now plan to let us create our own pop trios in Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Today they announced the 3v3 crossover brawler, made with Dead Or Alive developers Team Ninja and released on PlayStation 4 in 2018, is coming to PC as a free-to-play edition. I think my dream pop trio might be…

Square Enix slash Steam prices for the weekend

It's the weekend, or at least after work-hours for most on a Friday, so might as well pick up something to demolish your free time. Square Enix are running a rather nice sale on Steam for the weekend, cutting 50% off the price on most of their bigger games, and slapping deeper discounts on a lot of more obscure stuff, including their old Eidos catalogue.…

Final Fantasy XV: Episode Ardyn wraps up the story on March 26th

The game's director leaving to start his own studio may have sunk most DLC plans for Final Fantasy XV, but there's still one last story to be told. Due on March 26th, Episode Ardyn will put players in the shoes of the game's dapper arch-villain and lead him on a high powered rampage through the streets of the capital city. Still, Ardyn isn't Kefka, who…

Feature: How Ignis makes you want to experiment with food yourself

Overthinking Games: Final Fantasy XV’s love of food

For the sake of snappy videogame design, eating is often the first thing that falls by the wayside. After all, food and all the associated processes take time, time that in most games is better spent elsewhere. Just like in real life, having to hunt around for food in the middle of an adventure often tampers with the pacing. There are exceptions, but food prep…

Feature: Cast Haste on FFXV's frame rate at 4K

Final Fantasy XV’s DLSS boosts PC performance by around 10-15fps on the RTX 2080

Nvidia's performance-boosting DLSS tech arrived in Final Fantasy XV last week, allowing all three people who've actually bought themselves one of Nvidia's new Turing RTX cards to finally start making use of what makes the GeForce RTX 2070, RTX 2080 and RTX 2080Ti so special. I'm still a bit miffed this fancy, AI-driven edge-smoothening magic only works at 4K at the moment, thereby making it…

Nvidia’s performance-boosting DLSS tech finally arrives in Final Fantasy XV, but…

Anyone who didn't uninstall Final Fantasy XV in a fit of despair and/or rage last month after the abrupt cancellation of 75% of its upcoming DLC will have noticed a delightful 15GB update waiting for them on Steam today, in which finally arrives support for Nvidia's frame rate rocketing tech, DLSS (or deep learning super sampling, if that makes things any clearer). It's one of…

Final Fantasy XV cancels most DLC, director quits Square Enix

The saga of Final Fantasy XV will cut off abruptly, as Square Enix last night announced they've cancelled three of its four upcoming story DLCs. FFXV director Hajime Tabata has left the company too, planning to start his own company for his own project. So... that's about the end of that. The DLC story episode starring antagonist Ardyn is still coming, as are more of…
