Next-Gen NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet Unveiled

REVEALED: The Tegra K1-Powered NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet and new SHIELD Controller officially launching July 29.

By Patrick Shaw After months of speculation, NVIDIA has finally pulled the curtain back on its next-generation SHIELD platform and successor to NVIDIA's self-contained SHIELD device it launched last year. Slated to release at the end of this month, the new SHIELD experience liberates the first-generation SHIELD device (now dubbed SHIELD Portable) controller from its display as the new platform features a separate SHIELD Tablet and SHIELD Controller designed to provide gamers with more options for how and where they play their games.

Darkwood Hits Steam Early Access July 24

Wizard Studio's forthcoming horror-themed roguelike game launching on Steam Early Access this week.

By Jeremy Peel | PCGamesN Darkwood is a promising top-down, roguelike, horror game coming to Steam Early Access on July 24th. To celebrate the release date, Acid Wizard Studio has released a special interactive trailer, which allows you to choose the fate of our nameless wanderer. Will you fight or flee? Watch the interactive trailer above. Darkwood is set in a cryptic forest within the territory of the Soviet Bloc. The environment is deliberately deceiving; with the levels being randomly generated and unknown terrors lurking in the shadows. You’ll have to watch your back if you want to survive and find out what happened in Darkwood. It’s very much an alpha though. The game isn’t complete and...

Prototype Footage of Areal FPS Revealed

West Games releases the first footage of STALKER successor Areal.

By Jeremy Peel | PCGamesN The Ukrainian developers behind the most troubled Kickstarter project in yonks have released the first footage of their intended STALKER successor, Areal. The “early prototype” video is a bid to pull the campaign by its shoulders over the finish line - but is unlikely to sway would-be backers one way or the other. West Games say the footage is “not representative of Areal’s final quality”. Some of the right elements are there, though: a flashlight, a forest, and an anomalous crash site. And throughout, the comforting, ever-present blip of something like a Geiger counter. But then there’s that stiff-looking character model. And did anybody manage to...

KOR-FX Haptic Feedback Vest Hits Kickstarter

A Kickstarter campaign launches for a promising new haptic vest that allows gamers to feel the game.

By Tyler Lee | Ubergizmo Devices like the Oculus Rift and Sony’s Project Morpheus have been designed to take the gaming experience to the next level, but if you’d rather feel than see, then perhaps the KOR-FX haptic vest might be of interest to you. Haptic feedback gaming is definitely not new and we’ve seen it in the likes of steering controls and gaming seats. However what makes KOR-FX different is that it is a vest that gamers can wear, allowing them to feel the vibrations from the game on their body. The device was actually announced earlier this year but has since become a Kickstarter project where the device has managed to raise more than $140,000, which is almost double that of its original...

Ubisoft shows off new gameplay footage for the upcoming next-gen Assassin's Creed game.

Ubisoft’s also put together a second trailer detailing Unity’s setting: the Revolution and The Reign of Terror. It breaks down the historical events and ties it into the fiction where a puppet master appears in the chaos, presumably the Templars.  I am, I confess, starting to find it a little odd that I’ve yet to hear a...
