The Division: Left Hand Fail

The Division: Left Hand Fail

According to Scientific American, 15% of people are left-handed, and males are twice as likely to be left-handed than females. Also, according to research conducted by Dr. Nick Cherbuin, lefites are better at handling large amounts of stimuli, making them naturally better at playing video games. With this in mind, it’s clear why Ubisoft decided to cater to this segment group by adding the option of switching the keybindings to left-handed. Regretfully, their efforts are in vain. Their solution is to simply offer a streamlined option to remap the keys according to what they THINK southpaws require. This option utilizes [...]

The Division: Fun despite Ubisoft’s best efforts

The Division: Fun despite Ubisoft’s best efforts

In one short week (or less, depending when you read this), the tactical 3rd person shooter/RPG/open world game Tom Clancy’s The Division will be hitting shelves and digital storefronts worldwide. For those of you who’ve been living under a rock for the past four years, here’s the deal. The Division is a curious undertaking. It was originally planned to be more or less a sandbox MMO in the same style as Bungie’s much-maligned Destiny was intended to be, and The Division has been through just as many feature cuts, revisions and delays as Destiny. But it’s still somehow managed to keep the interest of Console and PC gamers alike, [...]

Good evening, and here is the XP4T news with your host, Neoheresy. If you’re a Raptr user, make haste to the password change section of your profile as it may have been stolen, as disclosed by Raptr’s CEO. You may also want to mark Valentine’s Day in you calendars, but this time for gaming purposes, as this is exactly when the open beta launched for pedestrian-squashing classic revival, Carmageddon Reincarnation.

Will it Run? | Assassin’s Creed: Unity

Will it Run? | Assassin’s Creed: Unity

As part of our ongoing work with PurePC.pl to keep you informed about how well you can expect your rig to run various high-end games, here’s another in the Will it Run? series that aims to provide you with a clear answer to whether or not your PC can cope with Assassins’s Creed:Unity. In this case, however, the answer will most likely not be one you’ll like. AC: Unity was released with a multitude of functional bugs, ranging from busted controls and broken texture loading to the main protagonist clipping though the streets and into an abyss. But perhaps the most flawed aspect of the game is its performance [...]

Review: Far Cry 4

Review: Far Cry 4

Far Cry 3 was amazing. A wonderful, open world, with hundreds of activities and various ways of approaching every encounter. It had an engaging story and crazy characters on top of all that, and this made it a really unique, refreshing experience. Back when it was released in 2012, we had lots of competent shooters to choose from, including Borderlands 2, a new CoD: Black Ops and the fourth Halo, and every one of them was a solid game that made money and was enjoyed by its fans. But for this reviewer, it was the third Far Cry that owned them [...]
