Shadow Of The Tomb Raider demo swings out

We've all seen Lara Croft's origin story a hundred times: bitten by a radioactive tomb, she gained great power and unslakeable bloodthirst, but when her father was killed in an alley by a cursed string of pearls she had herself raided, she realised she had a great responsibility to do errands for the indigenous peoples she's robbing. If you wish to once again discover how…

Shadow of the Tomb Raider graphics performance: How to get the best settings for your PC

The latest Tomb Raider reboot games have always been big technical showcases on PC, and Shadow of the Tomb Raider is no exception. After a slightly rocky pre-release build that's thankfully been ironed out in time for today's release (have a read of John's newly updated Shadow of the Tomb Raider review if you're still unsure), this is easily one of the most demanding games…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider review

Update: We've made some substantial changes to this review to reflect the dramatic technical improvements made by the day one patch released on the 12th. Shadow Of The Tomb Raider is, we're told, the final entry in the latest trilogy of Lara Croft adventures. And is, I'm pleased to report, by far the best of the three. It remains a muddled affair, never quite sure…

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider will let you turn off its hints

If you wish to turn off all the objective markers, glowing item highlights, and even guiding paint splashes in Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, you will be able to. Leap and puzzle without any obvious assistance, if you please. Or if you find those handy and want all the help you can get, hey, the game will let you do that too. The game's makers…

Playerkind Divided – How’s Deus Ex Running For You?

Just as night follows day, just as pudding follows main course, just as Westlife follows Boyzone, so too is Steam flooded with negative reviews following the release of a highly-anticipated new game. This time it's Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site], which was released yesterday to a mostly good critical response, but a cooler reception from PC players. Those who pointed their mecha-thumbs downwards are…

Tomb Raider DLC Rising: Co-op, Croft Manor, Zombies

New Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] DLC will bring two-player co-op support to its survival mode Endurance and a whole load of things for Lara to do around Croft Manor. I like when video game people have homes. Lara will be kicking around her mansion in a new hunk o' story, as well as shooting through it in a nightmare thanks to a…

Rise Of The Tomb Raider Clings To January 28th

This is what is so exciting about archaeology: we're always uncovering new (old) developments, learning more, and reshaping our understanding of history. As recently as yesterday, our radiocarbon dating techniques could only broadly date Rise of the Tomb Raider [official site] to a January release window. Today, a new development means that we now know a specific day: Thursday, January 28th. Isn't progress exciting! I'll…

NVidia Apologises For Crummy Tomb Raider Performance

NVidia have written a little apology note to all suffering with Tomb Raider graphics issues. Although I've yet to receive chocolates. I mentioned in yesterday's Tomb Raider review that I had some issues with running the game on prettier graphics, and it seems I'm not alone. Apart from the silly hair mode reducing NVidia cards to jelly, I had peculiar problems with the OSD occasionally…

Deus Ex 3 Will Support 3D, DX11, Acronyms

PC Gamer have the latest on all the different technical set-ups that Deus Ex: Human Revolution will support. First up, it'll support DirectX 11, which is great! It'll also support 3D, which is great if you don't have astigmatism and don't mind playing your video games looking like a D-list celebrity with a hangover. Finally, it'll support AMD Eyefinity, which you can see above, but…

Deus Ex 3 PC Being Co-Developed By Nixxes

I'm never quite sure how to take news that a PC version of a game is being worked on by an external studio. Volition recently named the practice as the reason for their dodgy PC ports, and have promised they will be doing all their PC development in house in future. But others use it as a means to ensure the PC version receives the…
