Resident Evil Village crack significantly improves performance, and Capcom is promising a fix

By Sherif Saed 15 July 2021 12:41 GMT Resident Evil Village does indeed run better when you crack it.Earlier this week, it came to light that Resident Evil Village‘s implementation of the anti-piracy DRM Denuvo (as well as Capcom’s own DRM layer) are the main reasons behind the game’s constant stuttering on PC.Watch on YouTubePirates said that using a crack eliminates all of these problems, and they have been proven right. Digital Foundry put these claims to the test, and found that DRM is indeed the cause of Village’s troubles on PC. The tech outlet’s latest video, seen above, demonstrates…

Have You Played… Monster Hunter: World?

I fell off Monster Hunter: World a bit. I’m not really sure why, I think it’s just because other games came out and I got swept up in them instead. But now I want to go back, but not really for the hunting or the exploring or the monsters. No, it’s all about the hammer for me. Read more

Resident Evil Village PC crack fixes shuttering issue, claims hacker

By Dom Peppiatt 13 July 2021 10:50 GMT It turns out that Resident Evil Village‘s DRM may be causing its stuttering issues on PC, and a hacker believes cracking the software completely fixes the issues.One of the biggest bugs that has been affecting the PC version of Resident Evil Village since its launch on the platform is its traversal stutter, caused by moving through the level or triggering certain events, such as zombie kills. Only by turning off ray-tracing could you mitigate the stutter (which causes huge frame drops fairly often in the game), and even then it wouldn’t eliminate the…

Monster Hunter Stories 2 is out now, but don’t forget to play the demo first

Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings Of Ruin is finally out. As Ed said in his review, it’s a game that begins as a “slow slog” but eventually transforms into a “satisfying number cruncher.” If you are considering a purchase, there’s one final step you can take before plonking down a big pile of monster cash: grab the free dmeo, which is now available alongside the main game. I hear there’s a lot to it, though it does have the dreaded Denuvo monstie hiding in its files. Read more

Monster Hunter Stories 2 looks better with friends

The Saturday morning cartoon version of Capcom’s Monster Hunter games, Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings Of Ruin, is out July 9. That’s close enough for them to whip up the launch trailer below. As we’re approaching the release date, Capcom just released a look at the game’s coop mode, and have announced that there’s going to be a demo for everyone to try on launch day. Here’s the launch trailer. Read more

Monster Hunter Stories 2 feels like a watered down Monster Hunter

I don’t get that urge to play Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings Of Ruin, you know? I’m not scrabbling for my controller the moment I get home in a desperate bid to take my pet monster, Sandra, out for her daily fight. I think it’s because Monster Hunter Stories 2, the second in a new series of turn-based RPGs spun off from Monster Hunter prime, just feels like a watered down Monster Hunter. It takes the well known bits from the mainline series and packs them into a Pokémon mould – but only some of them stick, while the rest…

Tekken X Street Fighter was ‘30% complete’ before development was halted

By Dom Peppiatt 21 June 2021 19:16 GMT According to Tekken boss, Katsuhiro Harada, the long-awaited crossover game Tekken X Street Fighter is definitely dead and was about 30% done before development was halted.The game, the planned follow-up to niche fighting title Street Fighter x Tekken, was announced 11 years ago and was initially supposed to launch on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, but all chat about the game vanished soon after it was announced and Tekken fans have been curious about the title ever since.But thanks to some new comments Harada made on his YouTube series Harada’s Bar, the famously feisty developer…

Great Ace Attorney Chronicles adds a mechanic that sounds like a Sherlock Holmes fanfic

During Capcom’s E3 stream last night, they showed new footage of The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, which is coming to PC next month. Some of it will be fairly familiar to those of you who’ve dabbled in Ace Attorney, though they did reveal a couple of new gameplay mechanics: Dance Of Deduction and Summation Examination. I can’t get over how that first one sounds like Herlock Sholmes has been spending a bit too much time on AO3. Read more

Monster Hunter Stories 2 is going to let me do gene science on giant bears

What is better than battles between giant bears? Obviously it’s battles between giant bears that I have bred specifically to shoot giant plasma beams out of their giant mouths. Also the bear is my bestie because this is Monster Hunter series spinoff Monster Hunter Stories 2 where mega deadly creatures are also my best pals. Ahead of its launch in July, MonStories 2 has shown off some of its monstie gene splicing and (obviously) I am psyched for bears. Read more

Resident Evil’s Nemesis is coming to Dead By Daylight

Like a giant Katamari made of scabs and jump scares, Dead By Daylight has collected another classic horror fiend to stalk its servers. The upcoming Resident Evil chapter will, unsurprisingly, bring the Umbrella Corp’s Nemesis to the multiplayer horror game. The new beast won’t be turning up on his own, though. Leon S. Kennedy and Jill Valentine will be added as survivors for the meat-weapon-gone-rogue to chase. The ghastly collab was announced to celebrate Dead by Daylight’s fifth anniversary. The asymmetric multiplayer game, where teams of survivors try and outlast a singular enemy during a round, is packed with classic…

Resident Evil Village Varcolac Alpha | And two other optional bosses you might have missed

By James Billcliffe 17 May 2021 13:56 GMT Hiding around every corner in Resident Evil Village is a secret waiting to be discovered. And while there’s plenty of clandestine loot to find, there are a few optional bosses, like the Varcolac Alpha and giant, axe-wielding butcher brothers, to hunt down too. These tough opponents either appear in their own new spaces, or to punish you for being too comfortable backtracking through areas you thought were safe. Here’s where you can tango with a few of the optional bosses in Resident Evil Village you might have missed. Watch on YouTubeResident Evil…
