GeForce Experience 3.0 - 3x Faster, 50% Less Memory Usage and Giveaways?!

 

Just released last week was the new GeForce Experience 3.0, this new update will bring better optimization and some new features. The most noteworthy thing is the implementation of giveaways. Nvidia will be offering beta keys, game keys and hardware just for using the new GeForce experience. 

This new makeover will be a lot faster and easier to use. The previous renditions were slightly bulky and not 100% smooth. Nvidia has reduced the footprint of the program and it will now use less of your computers resources when active. As always, GeForece Experience will automatically adjust your game settings based on the hardware you have in your system and they have made this easier to use. You will now be able to optimize your games easily with a click of a button. 

Shadowplay has also been updated, you will be able to record games at up to 60fps, 4k and in windowed mode. These clips can be uploaded straight to media platforms so you can share them with your friends a lot sooner. You can even upload to Imgur without leaving the game "and let a friend jump into your game via Chrome to either watch, take control of your character, or play in co-op." 

Click here to get the latest GeForce Experience!

Mass Effect: Andromeda in 4K!

The next installment of the ever popular Mass Effect franchise is in the works and the previes thus far are very impressive.  The new game titled: Mass Effect : Andromeda is set to release early 2017

Devs released a very impressive trailer below in 4K showing off some early gameplay and cut scene a few days ago.  Even though you may not have a 4K monitor to view the trailer on, you can still view it without issues and see the super rich and detailed characters. 

 
The next trailer to be released will be on N7 day which is November 7th, 2016.  I for one cannot wait to see what they show us next and I am excited to see the final game once released.  Having played all of the previous Mass Effect games, this is one of the top games on my list for 2017!
 
Let us know what you think of the early gameplay trailer in 4K and let us know who your favorite Mass Effect character is, down in the comment section below!
 

Overwatch Upgrading Servers to 63Hz!

 

Blizzard is currently in the process of upgrading the Overwatch servers to run at 63Hz but what does this mean? If you are familiar with first-person shooter games then response time will mean a big thing to you. The servers used to be 21Hz meaning the servers were making 21 communications a second to everyone and back, moving the servers up to 63Hz means the servers and clients will communicate 3 times as much. Getting shot around a corner will be less likely to happen, you will not have to lead your shots as much and inputs will feel a lot more responsive. 

 

 

The servers were originally set at 21Hz to prevent any crashing when the servers were first launched. 63Hz has been available but only exclusive to Custom Games, the change of the servers won't be affecting the esports scene at all because they have been competing on 63Hz servers. It will change the experience for matchmaking players.

While you may not notice it as much in the beginning, I'm sure you will eventually. In the Counter-Strike: GO scene, the matchmaking servers are at 64Hz (or tick) but there are also premium servers that run at 128tick. These 128tick servers are the standard when it comes to competitive play. Higher tickrate usually means the skillcap is higher, this awards faster reaction. It would be very unlikely for a game like Overwatch, which implements abilities rather than just gunplay, to need a server running at 128Hz but hey, I'll take the 63Hz. Matchmaking in Overwatch should be a lot more enjoyable and snappy now.

 

What are you guys' thoughts on this change? Do you feel your play style will change at all? Let us know in the comments below!

Return to Karazhan Patch 7.1

 

The first patch for Legion will be bringing a lot of memories back. Return to Karazhan will be bringing back one of the most exciting raids from Burning Crusade. Although this will no longer be a 10-man raid, we will get to experience Karazhan as a 5-man extended dungeon much similar to Blackrock Depths. It is interesting that they are going this route because smaller dungeons always have more closely knit groups and in my opinion, it is a more enjoyable interaction. Larger dungeons seem to be slightly hectic especially if you don't talk to anyone else in your group. If you haven't had the opportunity to obtain the mount from the original Karazhan, don't worry, they aren't replacing the original instead there will be new entrance.

 

 

Karazhan will be similar to the Mythic difficulty but slightly harder. It seems to be a full on raid but with just 5 people, the dungeon will be revamped and hopefully we will get a redesign that trumps the visuals from Burning Crusade. There will be 9 bosses for us to defeat (and hopefully a new mount to farm). Return to Karazhan will be release on the PTR servers in the next couple weeks according to Blizzard but we do not have a solid date for release on live servers as of yet. This will be the first patch of the many that Blizzard has in store for Legion and it will be a notable one for them. Legion is suppose to be the longest and most content-packed expansion so far and I can't wait to see what will be coming in the future.
