Here are 15 minutes of brand new gameplay footage from RAGE 2
https://www.dsogaming.com/videotrailer-news/here-are-15-minutes-of-brand-new-gameplay-footage-from-rage-2-2/
YouTube’s ‘Cerealkillerz’ has shared a new video, showing 15 minutes of brand new gameplay footage from RAGE 2. This video will give you an extended look at the gameplay, story and abilities you’ll get to see in the game (in case you want to experience these things yourselves, you should obviously avoid watching it).

I was thinking the game looked a little off compared to other iD Tech games... Turns out it's made by Avalance studios and uses the Apex game engine... So not sure what to think of it at the moment.
The Gun play looks fun though.

The latest version of Denuvo used in Resident Evil 2 Remake, Denuvo 5.5, has been cracked
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/the-latest-version-of-denuvo-used-in-resident-evil-2-remake-denuvo-5-5-has-been-cracked/
Resident Evil 2 Remake was released on January 25th and was powered by the latest version of the Denuvo anti-tamper tech. And from the looks of it, it took almost a week in order to crack this new version of the controversial anti-tamper tech.
As said, Resident Evil 2 Remake is using the latest version of Denuvo which is – unofficially – titled Denuvo 5.5. From what we know so far, Ace Combat 7 is also using Denuvo 5.5 and the highly anticipated Metro Exodus will be most likely using this particular version.
Contrary to some other releases, Resident Evil 2 Remake does not suffer from any performance issues (despite the presence of Denuvo). As such, and if you are worried about the game’s performance, we strongly suggest buying it as Capcom did an incredible job with the PC version (you can read our PC Performance Analysis article here).

F-Zero GX gets a HD remaster treatment with this AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack, available for download
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/f-zero-gx-gets-a-hd-remaster-treatment-with-this-ai-enhanced-hd-texture-pack-available-for-download/
Earlier this month, we informed you about a HD Texture Pack for Metroid Prime. And today, I’m happy to report that PC gamers can enjoy another “remastered” version of a GameCube game, F-Zero GX, thanks to a brand new AI-enhanced Texture Pack that has just been released.
Similarly to Metroid Prime, this “remastered” version of F-Zero GX can only be experienced on the PC via the Dolphin emulator. Now I’m using the word remaster in quotes because this pack only improves the game’s textures and nothing more (but then again, most console remasters simply have AF enabled, are being rendered at higher resolutions and have higher quality textures. So yeah, I guess we can call this F-Zero GX Remaster for the PC?).

Ace Combat 7 has just been released on the PC and from the looks of it the game lacks various PC features that PC gamers were expecting to find in a brand new 2019 PC game. The game also currently has Negative reviews on Steam, though it’s really early right now and Bandai Namco can turn the tides with a quick hotfix/patch.

Betray your friends in the Project Winter open beta this weekend

Mafia, Werewolf, Kane and Lynch 2 multiplayer—deception and paranoia are great fodder for games, so I’m rather looking forward to Project Winter’s upcoming beta weekend. The game of co-op survival and backstabbing launches in Early Access next week, but first it’s hosting an open beta from tomorrow and ending on February 3.

It’s a point and click adventure heavily inspired by Sierra classics like Kings Quest and Quest for Glory. Like the latter, it also dips into the realm of RPGs, complete with magical specialisations and optional combat. Watch the launch trailer above.

Today's Fallout 76 patch intends to fix the stuff broken by the last patch
https://www.pcgamer.com/todays-fallout-76-patch-intends-to-fix-the-stuff-broken-by-the-last-patch/
Fallout 76 will receive a hotfix today that intends to undo a lot of the issues introduced by the last patch.
According to Bethesda, what happened was "a merge of internal development builds failed to execute properly prior to releasing Patch 5." This reintroduced several older issues that had been corrected in an earlier patch, such as the fix for bobby pin weight, issues with plans and recipes, bulk scrap that can no longer be auto-scrapped, and others.

In a surprise move, given that the last round of nerfs only happened a month ago, Blizzard is changing another batch of problematic cards. The next Hearthstone balance update will focus almost exclusively on the Basic and Classic sets, with changes intended to make some of the most prevalent "auto-includes" into more strategically-selective choices.

Those Who Remain is a "psychological thriller" about life in a small town, the choices we make, and the sometimes-unwelcome consequences that result. Oh, and the small town is enshrouded in the perpetual darkness of a demonic curse that's trapped its citizens in the cold clutches of an endless supernatural night.

Medieval fantasy RTS Bannermen will hold an open beta test next week
https://www.pcgamer.com/medieval-fantasy-rts-bannermen-will-hold-an-open-beta-test-next-week/
Bannermen is a medieval RTS with dynamic environments that we first looked at a couple of years ago. It was in the midst of a Kickstarter campaign that seemed to be going well at the time, but it ran into trouble and was ultimately cancelled. Development went on, however, and it's now slated for release on February 21. Ahead of that, gamers will have a chance to see what it's all about in an open beta that will take place from February 8-10.

Mosh Pit Simulator is a wonky VR physics sandbox full of brainless, boneless creatures that vaguely resemble people. And you can stick rockets on a whale. The story trailer, above, doesn’t clear anything up. Is there a mosh pit? Does it matter? It’s out now in Early Access.

Capcom reports record high profits thanks to Monster Hunter: World
https://www.pcgamer.com/capcom-reports-record-high-profits-thanks-to-monster-hunter-world/
2018 was an extremely good year for Capcom. After some uneven years and even big games like Resident Evil 7 and Street Fighter 5 failing to make quite as large a splash as the publisher was hoping, it’s managed to hit its stride once again, largely thanks to the excellent Monster Hunter: World.
Capcom’s latest financial report, which covers nine months ending on December 31, showed the record high profits, with operating income leaping up by a whopping 92 percent, just under £93,784,698 or $122,495,100, and a net income of £427,152,321 or $557,557,000, up 28.3% year-over-year. Those very large numbers owe a lot to some very large monsters.

Pay $12 now and you'll be able to play them all straight away, plus you'll get a handful of mystery games in March. Technically, you're subscribing to the bundle on a rolling basis when you sign up, but you can cancel (or pause) after one month.

Pikuniku, a delightful dystopian puzzler that came out last month, is also currently free for Twitch Prime susbcribers, and has been since last week. Like the other games, you have until the end of February to claim it here (and judging by Philippa's review, you really should).

Resident Evil HD Remaster receives a new AI-enhanced Texture Pack, improves more than 1600 textures
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/resident-evil-hd-remaster-receives-a-new-ai-enhanced-texture-pack-improves-more-than-1600-textures/
These past few weeks have been really interesting as we’ve seen some truly amazing AI-enhanced texture packs for older games. Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy 8, Final Fantasy 9, Half-Life, Max Payne, Morrowind and Doom are just a few of the games that got new high-quality textures that were produced via AI Neural Networks and today, modder ‘Shiryu’ released a new AI-enhanced Texture Pack for Resident Evil HD Remaster.
According to the modder, this Texture Pack, which is more than 8GB in size, upgrades/improves more than 1600 textures and took almost a month in order to be finished. Do note though that the rooms that Capcom redid as 3D rendered rooms have not been modified. This pack covers the entire game, meaning that you can install it and enjoy the improved textures from start to finish.

Here is how you can increase the LOD/view distance and remove Chromatic Aberration in Ace Combat 7
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/here-is-how-you-can-increase-the-lod-view-distance-and-remove-chromatic-aberration-in-ace-combat-7/
As we reported earlier today, Ace Combat 7 appears to be running really smoothly on the PC. However, our biggest gripe with the PC version right now is that it does not offer any extended settings for the LOD/view distance, resulting in the same pop-in issues found on the console versions. Thankfully, though, there is a workaround.

This mod for Shadow of the Tomb Raider makes Lara look similar to her Rise of the Tomb Raider version
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/this-mod-for-shadow-of-the-tomb-raider-makes-lara-look-similar-to-her-rise-of-the-tomb-raider-version/
A respectable number of players was disappointed when it discovered that Lara, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, did not look similar to her Rise of the Tomb Raider appearance. Among them was modder ‘kotn3l’ who went ahead and released a new 4K mod that makes Lara Croft’s face look similar to the one featured in Rise of the Tomb Raider.
As the modder noted, this mod changes Lara’s face texture from the game’s 2K textures to its predecessor’s 4K textures. The specular map was completely remade to work with Shadow of The Tomb Raider (which took up days to perfect every little detail). The diffuse map has also been altered a little as the modder has removed Lara’s very visible eye shadow. Furthermore, her eyebrow’s alpha map has been added back to the game as well.
The end result is a face that is more similar to the one used in Rise of the Tomb Raider. And while this definitely sounds great, there is a big downside for using this mod. According to kotn3l, this mod only works in DX11 and this particular API in Shadow of the Tomb Raider performs noticeably worse than DX12. Not only that, but users will need Kaldaien’s Special K in order to enable this mod (and we know that some users boycott Kaldaien’s mods).
>> Check the article for the links to the mod and Special K.

This mod brings Samus from Metroid Prime to Monster Hunter World
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/this-mod-brings-samus-from-metroid-prime-to-monster-hunter-world/
Modder ‘TSC’ has released a new mod for Monster Hunter World that brings to it Samus from Metroid Prime. This mod basically replaces Female Dante pieces with the choice of your Samus suits from Metroid Prime, as well as Moogle palico with a Metroid.
It’s a pretty cool mod that I’m pretty sure a lot of Metroid fans will appreciate. The mod currently features three suits that you can choose from. Furthermore, all suits are re-colorable on the normally orange portion of the Varia suit.
Unfortunately, though, and contrary to the NieR Automata or Final Fantasy XV Aranea mods for Monster Hunter World, this Metroid Prime mod does not feature any of Samus weapons. Of course her weapons wouldn’t work in a game like this – and it would have taken a lot of work in order to add them – so it’s a bit understandable. Still, it could be cool if this mod featured her iconic blast weapon and allowed players to use her ball morphing ability.

New release of standalone Thief fan game The Dark Mod is out now
https://www.pcgamer.com/new-release-of-standalone-thief-fan-game-the-dark-mod-is-out-now/
The original Thief trilogy is still considered a high-water mark for stealth games by many people, and if you're one of them you probably already know about The Dark Mod. It's the place to go to get your fix of fan missions made in a new engine— specifically, the Doom 3 engine, whose lighting effects are put to good use in maps like those highlighted in our list of the best Dark Mod missions. (In addition to those I'm partial to Creeps, a spooky little horror experience.)
In spite of the name The Dark Mod's a standalone you don't need to own Doom 3 to play, and you can download it for free. It's still being updated today and the latest version is The Dark Mod 2.07. Called "the stability release", it sorts out various problems introduced by the inclusion of things like soft shadows, an uncapped framerate, and multi-core processor support in the previous update. It also sneaks in some new features like faster mantling over small objects, better AI for some very specific situations like when you flashbomb someone who is sitting down, and more you can read about over at ModDB.

4A Games developer: If Metro Exodus does not sell on the PC, the next Metro will not come out for it
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/4a-games-developer-if-metro-exodus-does-not-sell-on-the-pc-the-next-metro-will-not-come-out-for-it/
This 4A Games developer with the nickname “scynet” admitted that it was a sudden decision to announce the timed-exclusive deal with Epic Games only one month prior to the game’s release and that it could cause some inconvenience to players. Scynet also claimed that those that decide to pirate the game would have done so, regardless of this timed-exclusive deal, and those are not the players that the developers target.
However, the developer went one step further and stated that if all PC gamers boycott Metro Exodus then the next Metro game (if there is one mind you) will not come out on the PC. Now I’m pretty sure that the developer was exaggerating here but it begs the question; how many PC sales can guarantee the continuation of the Metro franchise on the PC?

A lot of PC gamers got frustrated yesterday when a 4A Games developer claimed that the next Metro game would not be coming to the PC if all PC gamers boycotted Metro Exodus. And today, Deep Silver and 4A Games issued an official statement regarding those comments.
As Deep Silver and 4A Games stated, and as we noted in our story, those comments do not reflect Deep Silver’s or 4A Games’ view on the future of the Metro franchise. The companies also re-confirmed that the decision to make Metro Exodus available exclusively on Epic’s store for a limited time was made by Koch Media / Deep Silver alone.
