Tuesday news, part two:

Ace Combat 7 will receive more classic jets in the Experimental Aircraft Series DLC
https://www.pcgamer.com/ace-combat-7-will-receive-more-classic-jets-in-the-experimental-aircraft-series-dlc/
The Ace Combat series continues its 25th anniversary celebrations with the announcement of an Experimental Aircraft pack, due "spring 2021".
The pack is structured similarly to other 25th anniversary DLC releases, which means three new fighters to fly and a lot of skins to equip. This one will add the F15 S/MTD Short, the FB-22 Strike Raptor and the F-16XL. The F-16 is a new "advanced technical fighter", while the Raptor is a stealth fighter bomber. Watch them fly in the trailer above.

Noah’s Ark, an old NES platformer never released in the US, is now on Steam
https://www.pcgamer.com/noahs-ark-an-old-nes-platformer-never-released-in-the-us-is-now-on-steam/
Released in Europe in 1992, Noah’s Ark was one of the very few religion-themed games to officially hit the Nintendo Entertainment System. Playing as Noah, you travel the world collecting animals for your ark in places like ancient Rome, Egypt and China. It was a pretty straightforward 8-bit platformer with one fairly crucial (and annoying) twist: water automatically rises as you traverse the levels, and the higher the water level gets, the harder the game is.

IO Interactive's 007 will be a wholly new 'Bond for the gaming industry.'
https://www.pcgamer.com/io-interactives-007-will-be-a-wholly-new-bond-for-the-gaming-industry/
IO Interactive's take on James Bond won't retread any of 007's previous outings—nor will he resemble any of the actors who've portrayed the British superspy over the past 60 years.
In an interview with IGN, IO CEO and co-owner Hakan Abrak explained that the Hitman studio could only ever have taken the reigns on Bond if it was given complete freedom to create its own incarnation of 007—one that draws on the long history of the character, but is entirely IO's own.

E3 2021 is now coming sooner, on June 12–15
https://www.pcgamer.com/e3-2021-is-now-coming-sooner-on-june-1215/
The Entertainment Software Association has now announced its final plans for this year's event, and a change in date. E3 2021 will run from June 12 to June 15, and has "early commitments from Nintendo, Xbox, Capcom, Konami, Ubisoft, Take-Two Interactive, Warner Bros. Games and Koch Media." That is a fairly decent lineup of big-hitters, though whether anyone brings their AAA game remains to be seen.

A full, 4K remaster of TimeSplitters 2 was hidden inside Homefront: The Revolution
https://www.pcgamer.com/a-full-4k-remaster-of-timesplitters-2-was-hidden-inside-homefront-the-revolution/
Homefront: The Revolution's hidden TimeSplitters 2 remake apparently included far more than the two levels we already knew about. Unfortunately, it seems the keys to access the full game were lost years ago in a Discord ban.
That revelation came courtesy of former Crytek developer Matt Phillips, responding to ex-Vlambeer designer JW Nijman's call for developers to share easter eggs they'd hidden in games. There are some beauties in there too, from The Division's ninja turtles to Dragon Age 2's giant cheese wheel.

Gigabyte preparing X570S motherboards, could be for AMD Zen3+ “Warhol” CPUs

https://videocardz.com/newz/gigabyte-preparing-x570s-motherboards-could-be-for-amd-zen3-warhol-cpus

Maybe that leak about Zen+ really was real as it wouldn't make any sense to come out with a new chipset for the current lineup of CPUs.


Intel's Core i7-11700K has already been reduced, 10th-gen parts now even cheaper

https://www.techspot.com/news/89189-intel-core-i7-11700k-has-already-reduced-10th.html

". The Core i7-11700K, which was $420, is now down to $405. Our price tracker has the Core i7-10700K’s previous highest Amazon price as $406 back in November. It’s now available for just $317. And if you’re able to do an in-store pickup, Micro Center has it for an even lower $270."

That is absolutely insane pricing for the 10700k. Can't believe how good the 10th gen pricing is right now.


NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti, The Ultimate Pascal Gaming Graphics Card, Might Make a Comeback, Freshly Produced GPU Batch Spotted

ASUS ROG G15 STRIX laptop with AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX CPU and Radeon RX 6800M GPU spotted

The battle of mobile gpus will certainly be interesting to say the least. It could be a situation where AMD GPUs might start showing an advantage due to being on TSMC's 7nm. Then again, the clocks would still need to be reduced so we will see.

It remains to be seen if those Gigabyte motherboards are really featuring a new chipset or it's just a marketing term to launch new mobos in the market. But it will be easy to find out if some other manufacturer uses the same X570S moniker.

The drop in price of Intel CPUs is interesting and worrysome for Intel, because it shows that gamers don't see value in them compared to the AMD counterparts.

By the way, I didn't post it in the news but the Leisure Suit Larry games on Steam are on sale... and most of them are 69% off

RTX Voice is being superseded by Nvidia Broadcast. Whats interesting is with 410.18 drivers it doesn't require RTX cards and Works on older cards up to Keplar (GTX 600). Which is pretty awesome.

https://videocardz.com/newz/nvidia-rtx-voice-technology-now-working-on-non-rtx-geforce-graphics-cards

Update: tried on my 1070 and latest drivers and won't install :(

Just in case you did not realize because the wording in a lot of the articles not clear


Nvidia Broadcast require RTX

Nvidia RTX voice have worked with GTX card for awhile now actually (For around a year now I think)

Nvidia posted this awhile back https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/guides/nvidia-rtx-voice-setup-guide/

Under requirements it shows the GTX cards compatibility for 410.18 and up if you install RTX voice but Broadcast require RTX.

Tomhardware article really about something that happen a long time ago but guess since NVidia did not really advertise it that it went under the radar even through if you google it you could find it at nvidia website for a long time now.

Hard pass for me this month, the only games I would be interested in that I don't own are Rock of Ages III and Popup dungeon, and neither is really expensive, so they can also simply be bought during a steam/gog sale.



@Cryan Ahh fair enough, thanks. Yeah got a bit confused there lol.

IGN has a sneak peak at Mass Effect Remastered with comparisons of new vs old. Looks like a decent update.

They've added and changed stuff in the first ME like removal of walls (they added to improve performance) and changed assets. Plus used Ai enhanced textures, added AO and even changed the way the Mako drives and fires. Really looking forward to replaying the trilogy with little improvements here and there.

So it sounds like this will be small revision with a more efficient chip-set and passive cooling. With Warhol rumored to be incoming this is good time to release a new board.

Update from the article -

Update: Moore’s Law is Dead claims that the S stands for ‘Silent’, which implies that those boards will rely on passive cooling:
