SUPERHOT - A Unique FPS Game


The uniquely named time shifting first person shooter game called SUPERHOT, has its own unique origin story in the ever growing popularity of Kickstarter.  Even before it hit Kickstarter, the game itself was started as a "7 Day First Person Shooter (7DFPS) game project by a group of friends in August of 2013."  After releasing a polished version of the initial game at the WGK showcase, they decided to release to the masses via the internet.  SUPERHOT then got its Steam Greenlight in the span of only one weekend, thanks to the fan following.  

In May 2014, the SUPERHOT team decided to try their luck at Kickstarter, where a lot of indie game studios have been heading in order to crowdfund their game ideas/titles, bypassing the big corporate giants.  Their goal was reach in less then 24 hours, with over double their target goal being reached by the end of the campaign.  

So, now the question you are all asking yourselves is.... What the heck is SUPERHOT?  Well its a far departure from what you might expect from a current or next gen FPS game.  In reality, its graphics are very unique, in where the game itself looks unfinished at first glance.  The this adds to the character of the game, and the gameplay mechanics more than make up for the need for high res flashy 3D graphics.  

It is a true First Person Shooter game, with an added feature where essentially time itself moves only when you move .  The gameplay itself will certainly pull you in wanting more and its unique stylized graphics aim to add something new to the FPS genre.  The ability to see your enemies bullet path, giving you the freedom to choose the way you want to take them out, and trying to avoid the other enemies which come after will challenge even the most skilled player.  

The game almost blends a puzzle game, with a FPS to create a unique game that from the BETA gameplay video below leave you wanting to see and know more.  Be sure to check out the BETA gameplay video and let us know what you think of SUPERHOT in our comment section down below!    


GeForce Experience Share Beta Features


With the original release of the Nvidia GeForce Experience software,  we have been able to not only keep our Nvidia drivers up to date, but also optimize our video games and even safe the last few minutes of our gameplay in order to save it and upload it to  YouTube.  

Well Nvidia has been hard at work thinking of new features and today they announced a couple new cool features which are currently in their Beta phase, and which will be a great addition to the software experience.  

Andrew from Nvidia, the host of their popular GeForce Garage series brings us some details of these new features.  The Early Access Share Beta brings to it a new ingame overlay where you can access the features of the GeForce Experience without having to tab out or close down your current game session.  You will still have the ability to record and replay the last 5 mins of gameplay which is automatically recorded if the feature is on.  With Instant replay, you can save and upload your recorded gameplay right to YouTube without ever leaving your game.  The Stream feature will allow you invite a friend to help you ingame by having them take over and play as you.  For those games which have a Co-Op mode already, the Share feature will also allow you to invite them and play in your game session!

Check out the video below which provides some more details to give you a better idea of whats to come.  These are definitely some really cool additions coming to the GeForce Experience.  Let us know what you think of these feature in our comment section below!
