Evatech & Asus, Proudly powering screenPLAY on Channel 7

For the longest time Australian gamers (us included!) have had so little when it comes to quality Australian made gaming content. So when we heard Channel 7 was launching a gaming themed show hosted by @nichboy (Nich Richardson) and @hexsteph (Stephanie Bendixsen) of the late ABC show Good Game fame we jumped at the chance get behind them and show our support when they reached out to us.

Sworn to secrecy we worked with them behind the scenes for months before the show was finally announced mid June and since then the team has put out a tone of great content with weekly TV episodes, and daily web content including a tour of Blizzard studios, an interview with Nolan North, daily news videos and audience Q&A live streams the call ANSA on their Facebook page.

As an official sponsor of the show we provide the gaming PCs Nich, Steph and the rest of the crew use in their FirstPlay videos and Twitch streams as well as the systems they the film crew use for video editing and publishing. If you look closely in this screenshot you can see one of our custom built systems lurking the corner.

Destiny 2 Coming to PC in September

While the very successful and critically claimed  Destiny from Halo’s Bungee studios was a console excursive, Destiny 2 is making it’s it way to PC this September with a simultaneous cross platform launch.

It is currently unclear if the MMO world player base will be separated by platform or if PC and console players will cohabitate the same servers.

Hopefully, as with the first release, Destiny 2 will have Australian (typically in Sydney) based servers for the region.

All we really have to go by at this point is a few leaked posters and an official announcement trailer.

Stay tuned for more details as they develop. We should get a better idea of system requirements and game-play features closer to launch and a beta will be open to those who pre-order.

As PC gamers it’s always good to be a little concerned with the quality of the ‘port’ of a console game as we’ve all seen instances of it going terribly wrong but coming from a studio with a stellar track record like Bungee we are  confident it will be just as good if not better than it’s console counterparts.

Nvidia GTX 950 and 950TI Rumors Circulate.

Repeated by several unverified sources, the claim that Nvidia is preparing GTX 950 and 950 TIs to replace their long standing GTX 750’s currently doing battle with the AMD R7 line up.

If the rumors are true (and they do seem to be) the new cards will be based upon the GM206-300 GPU currently powering the GTX960, at lower clock rates and a 128bit memory bus.

No specifics announced in terms of release dates or pricing but it seems likely the move will come sooner rather than later and that these new X50 series cards will replace the GTX 750TI price point at the $150-$200 mark.

The now 18 month old GTX 750TI was amazing value for it’s entry level gaming GPU price point and we have every reason to expect the same from its inevitable replacement.
