Gears of War 4 Needs a Beast for 4K

If you're thinking of picking up Gears of War 4 for the PC and hope to run it in 4K, details emerging from Gamescom may help you budget your money. Unless you have a cutting edge system already, GoW4 will probably require a substantial upgrade - if you want to play in 4K. Recommended specs include a 4th Gen Core i5 3.5GHz CPU, GTX 970 and 8GB of memory. Ideal specs include a GTX 980 Ti or 1080 and 16GB of RAM. It's gonna be a hog - but it does look super pretty.

In this short gameplay demo through the “Rescue” chapter of Gears of War 4, our heroes JD, Kait and Del are chasing a large unknown enemy through an old COG fort. Along the way, they encounter two fierce Swarm enemies – Drones and Pouncers – for the first time, and have to battle their way through them before it’s too late. You can watch the video above or view it on YouTube.

HP's new Omen GamingPCs Look Sweet

HP has just announced their new Omen gaming PC lineup and it looks pretty awesome. The specs on their laptops run from quite modest to absolute high-end. The Omen X Desktop is very unique and is a classy cube case on a stand - balanced on it's edge. While it certainly looks like form over function, it's actually really well laid out internally and should be quite serviceable. More details at the link below.

And don't worry if you weren't in the market for an over-the-top desk machine, as there's more Omen hardware in the pipeline. An updated Omen 17 laptop now packs NVIDIA's portable version of the GTX 1060 or GTX 1070 as well as a mini DisplayPort jack, making it friendly to both VR and dual external screens.

Trolling Gamescom

Gamescom is underway in Europe and a company has posted up a nice banner advertising Half-Life: 3 over at Halle 1. I'm sure they are getting a lot of publicity, but for the record - Half-Life: 3 is not in the pipeline and this is not a Valve poster at all. In fact, if you read the fine print, it says: "Half-Life: 3 editors who played it back then". Sadly HL3 isn't confirmed, but I'm not throwing a fit like apparently millions of people are.

Levitation can be accomplished through magnets, super conductors and now through sound waves. It's a pretty short video, but it's still pretty nifty.

Apple Up to macOS 10.12 Beta 6

Apple is getting it. They are pushing their software releases out to the general public and taking their feedback to see how things perform, how features work and even overall system compatibility. Apple shouldn't have as big of a problem with compatibility as Microsoft does, but they are doing well to take into account a large install base for testing. Public Beta 5 is now available with Beta 6 released to developers. It's coming soon!

For those that have given up on hitting the Updates button in the Mac App Store, it's time to check again, as the new build of macOS Sierra is finally available. If you're not sure if you already have it, head over to "About This Mac" and make sure that you have build 16A294a.

Google's New OS is Fuchsia

Google has a couple of Operating Systems on the go right now; Android and Chrome. Both of them are open source and both of them serve a specific purpose and do it well. There is a lot of evidence that they are now working on a new OS - Fuchsia, and it's not clear as to what is will be used for. It could be the OS that bridges Chrome and Android, but I doubt they'd go with something like this. The core code is lightweight and fast, so it could be an IoT solution. We'll keep you posted.

This is just speculation for now, and the only real description we have of Fuchsia is what it says at the top of the GitHub page: "Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)." The question of why the project would be revealed in this way is also confusing, although when pressed on the subject during an IRC chat, Swetland reportedly said: "The decision was made to build it open source, so might as well start there from the beginning."
