Train2Game News 3 New Novatech Gaming PC’s

Novatech Ltd, specialist providers of high-end Gaming PCs, Workstations and Servers, has just launched three new Gaming PC’s equipped with the latest NVIDIA 3080 Graphics Cards.

Novatech are offering the option for gamers to build their own dream rig, using the base option of either an Intel or AMD machine and completely design a custom PC from scratch.


The two additional new Gaming PCs, Elite Panther and Elite Python are equipped with the brand new state of the art GeForce RTX 30 series GPUs to deliver the ultimate performance for gamers and creators. They’re powered by Ampere-NVIDIAs 2nd gen RTX architecture-with new RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors for the most realistic ray-traced graphics and cutting-edge AI features. Novatech’s Elite Gaming PCs are complete machines for easy use, beautifully simple yet engineered for high performance.
Novatech’s Elite Panther is quietly powerful, harnessing the raw processing capabilities of the Ryzen 9 3900X and GeForce RTX 3080 to tear through gaming along with photo and video editing, streaming anything else you want to throw at it! The Panther is illuminated by subtly RGB and housed in the sleep BeQuiet Pure 500, ideal for gamers and streamers alike.

Elite Panther Specifications:
●        AMD Ryzen 9 3900X Processor
●        16GB RGB Memory
●        Brand new NVIDIA RTX 3080 GPU

NVIDIA DLSS is groundbreaking AI rendering that boosts frame rates by 1.5X* or more with uncompromised image quality using the dedicated AI processing Tensor cores on GeForce RTX. This gives you the performance headroom to crank up settings and resolutions for an incredible visual experience like no other. 

NVIDIA’s CEO Jensen Huang was as quite enthusiastic about NVIDIA’s latest advances in ray tracing and DLSS technology, and both seemed to be used a lot in their testing at higher resolutions for the new Graphics Cards.

NVIDIA’S new GPUs were reviewed by Dave James  at PC Gamer and here’s what he said “ There is potentially more competition in the high-end GPU space again, and with the RTX 30-series lineup announced so far it looks like the green team is going for some shock and awe tactics ahead of the upcoming Radeon launch. So, thanks AMD for pushing Nvidia, because we’re getting some great cards being released to loom over Big Navi”

Both PS5 models also offer a deepened sense of immersion through the DualSense wireless controller and 3D audio capabilities, so players will enjoy the same transformative gameplay experiences regardless of which PS5 they choose.

“Since we first announced our next generation console last year, we have received astounding support from developers and gaming fans all around the world, and it’s truly humbling,” said Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment. “Now we are just a couple of months away from launching PS5, which will offer a new generation of experiences that go beyond players’ expectations of how games can look, feel, sound, and play.

While these three games were designed to take advantage of PS5 and its unique next-gen features like the ultra-high speed SSD and DualSense controller, PS4 owners will also be able to enjoy these experiences when they launch.

The world-famous ladies man is now available for your gameplay pleasure in the Microsoft Store in the form of Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry! Join Larry as he takes on the modern age — one explicit social media app at a time — to stumble his way to true love. The Xbox launch completes Larry’s multi-platform conquest as the infamous title stakes its claim on PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, Android, and now, Xbox One! 
 
Boasting a ‘Very Positive’ Steam review score, Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry lands Larry Laffer smack dab in 2018 where he’ll navigate his way through modern technology and modern women. What does that mean for the grease-stained lovebird of the ‘80s? Only one way to find out! 
 
Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry launches on Xbox One complete with the Happy Ending Update — an expansion that serves as an epilogue depicting what happens after Larry’s dating misadventures that take place in the main game. That’s not all — players don’t have to wait long to get more Larry, as Assemble Entertainment and developer Crazybunch have just recently announced the sequel, Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Dry Twice, launching on PC via Steam on October 15th 2020. 
 
Watch the Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry Xbox One trailer here

More about Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry:

Hey ladies, I’m back in business! My latest adventure, Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry, takes me – whatever the route or twist of fate – from the end of the ’80s directly to the 21st Century and wow, how the world has changed! While my…somewhat antiquated view of the world and women collides with modern reality, I’m all set to date my way across the modern world!

In a “point & click” adventure I’d call typical for the genre, we mutually experience how I fall head-over-heels in love with Faith, the assistant to the boss at Prune, a powerful global tech company. Since even dating is done digitally nowadays, the first thing I have to do is to work on my score at Timber, the totally hip, can’t-get-anywhere-without-it dating app where I date women, satisfy their needs, and pick up points for my Timber profile. And whenever I get a chance in between, briefly check out a few new beach pix at Instacrap – the 21st century is gnarly!

Key Features of Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry:

  • What a World!: Explore a lovingly designed, non-linear game world set in modern times with over 30 hand-drawn venues
  • The Digital Age: Use the “Timber” in-game app, along with an innovative dating mechanism to date women, improve your profile score, and ultimately clear the way to dating Faith, the woman of your dreams
  • Dating Can be Puzzling: Solve true-blue puzzles and interact with over 30 hand-drawn characters

Developed by CrazyBunch and published by Assemble Entertainment, Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry is available for £33.49GBP as a digital download in the Microsoft Store and features a limited-time 25% launch discount.  
 
Thank you in advance for sharing this news with your audience! If you have any questions for Assemble Entertainment or Crazybunch about the launch or the Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams series, please drop me a line. 

Train2Game News Runescape Gets D&D Update

Jagex, creators and custodians of the iconic living game RuneScape, today introduced a refresh of Distractions and Diversions, marking 12 years of D&D content in the game.

The developers took a closer look at the classic Distraction and Diversion Penguin Hide and Seek and have added new rewards, updated graphics, and an elusive bunch of frosty secret agent penguins. Additionally, a new advanced Distraction and Diversion has been introduced – The Effigy Incubator.

Penguin Hide and Seek
Building on the popular Penguin quest line, Penguin Hide and Seek challenges players to seek out and find members of the KGP (Killer Gentoo Penguins) who have infiltrated Gielinor. The PBJ (Polar Bears for Justice) has noticed an increase in KGP activity thanks to an influx of new Secret Agent penguins. Players who participate in this improved Distraction and Diversion will be able to gain new rewards including the Sheldon the Baby Penguin pet, new titles, and a penguin tracking device.

The Effigy Incubator
Players who have completed the recently released Desperate Measures quest will be able to take part in a new advanced Distraction and Diversion – The Effigy Incubator. A frenzied, time-based D&D that gives windfalls of XP every month, but also pumps out best-in-slot urns. Players can use these urns while they are out in the world to aid their skilling. The powerful effigies have existed and been appreciated in game since June 2010, and successful adventurers will discover Kerapac’s secret lab to make their own, while revealing intriguing new dragonkin lore.

Distractions and Diversions – a popular content type in RuneScape – offer minigames for when players want a break from the game’s everyday cycle of quests, combat and skilling. With over 30 different activities, these minigames renew on a daily, weekly or monthly basis and ensure that there is always extra entertainment to be had outside of the core gameplay.

RuneScape players can join in these and other Distractions and Diversions at www.runescape.com

Train2Game News Small World Of Warcraft Available Now

Days of Wonder is excited to announce the release of Small World® of Warcraft® today in stores and online, including the Blizzard Gear Store.

Small World® of Warcraft® is a new board game combining the Small World game mechanics with Blizzard Entertainment’s acclaimed Warcraft® universe. The game is set on Blizzard’s fantasy world of Azeroth, where the races of the Alliance and the Horde—including Orcs, Dwarves, Trolls, and Worgen—clash in a world-consuming conflict.

To help them achieve dominance, players will occupy legendary places and seek control of powerful artifacts.

Days of Wonder worked closely with Blizzard to create a game that seamlessly brings together both universes. Small World of Warcraft features a variety of new and exclusive artwork that captures the feel of the colorful and vibrant Warcraft universe, with races and special powers designed to be familiar to the millions of WoW® players around the world.
 
“Working alongside Blizzard has been an amazing experience. Not only did our vision for the game align quickly, but the creative work we’ve done together has been intense and extremely satisfying,” said Adrien Martinot, head of Days of Wonder. “Blizzard allowed us to dive deep into the rich Warcraft universe, and I’m eager to see this incredible cooperation come to light with the game’s release.”
 
Small World of Warcraft is a standalone game designed for 2 to 5 players and can be completed in 40 to 80 minutes. It includes 6 double-sided boards, 16 Warcraft Race banners, 182 Matching Race tokens and 15 Murloc tokens, 20 Unique Special Power badges, 5 Player Summary Sheets, 12 Artifact and Legendary place markers, 10 Mountains, 9 Wisp Walls, 4 Harmony tokens, 12 Bombs, 1 Champion, 10 Forts, 2 Military Objectives, 5 Beasts, 6 Watch Towers, 110 Victory coins, 1 Custom Reinforcement die, 1 Game turn track, 1 Game turn marker, 1 rulebook and 1 Team Variant Rules sheet.

Some of the choices presented to the player could be the wrong ones, in which case the player must start from the last checkpoint.

Lovecraft World is the third voice-game released by Just AI, after previous games that included interactive dramas for smart speakers, and Da, Milord, which amassed 1.5 million players on Google Assistant and Yandex’s assistant, Alice. Just AI also provides open-source tools by which other developers can create voice games for voice assistant platforms and smart displays.

The Lovecraft World game was built using the open-source Kotlin-based framework JAICF and Google Interactive Canvas framework. JAICF allows the development of agile and complex conversational voice apps and integrates them natively with game engines. The Google Interactive Canvas framework delivers rich and addictive gaming mechanics and effects to the Google Nest smart display along with the porting of existing web-browser games (like games for Facebook) to Google smart displays. 

“Just AI’s launch of Lovecraft on Google Assistant devices is a pioneering moment in smart display games, as it marks one of the first times that both voice and touch controls are integrated into the gaming experience,” said Kirill Petrov, CEO and Founder, of Just AI. “Aside from creating a great game, Just AI is showing other developers what is possible and providing even more of the top-notch content that players love.”
