Braindance feature is useful to scan area details for clues and may come in handy to solve various puzzles. Recordings will have separate layers for audio and visuals with additional data of adjacent background of a particular scene.

BD tech will turn players into an advanced security camera as described by quest designers Pawel Sasko. Braindance is a brilliant way to include puzzles into CP2077 and CD Projekt Red has spent enough time to add more of them.

Customization and Player Choice
Before beginning your journey in Night City, customization for mercenary protagonist V begins at character creator with base body type. You can pick up masculine or feminine voice and nitty-gritty features like markings, tattoos etc.

RELATED: Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time Announced

Night City is divided into many districts that houses different factions like corporation shills, street gangs or even wastelanders trying to survive. Many of them will come across V as friends or enemies depending on your dialogue and choices.

While interacting with a gang, you can try and attack them to steal from them or pay up to avoid trouble. Not every situation gives you enough response time to rethink your decisions and you have to rely on instinct for most part.

RELATED: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Have Full Nudity

Even when conflict becomes unavoidable, Cyberpunk 2077 gives you more than one way out based on your skill sets. V can eventually turn into a tank with enough reflexes or choose to wield firearms and melee weapons in a fight.

Those who prefer a stealthier approach can focus developing Cool skill tree and become master of hacking. V will be controlling cameras, distract enemies, turn their device on them, making a weapon malfunction or just explode a grenade.

Dead Island 2 Playable Alpha Build Leaked

A cancelled version of Dead Island 2 by Yager Development from 2015 has been leaked online via 4Chan.

After being confirmed back in 2014, survival horror game Dead Island 2 was abandoned by developer Techland before being handed to Yager Development by publisher Deep Silver, which was later taken over by Sumo Digital in 2015.

Last year, THQ Nordic has revealed to have restart development once again with Dambuster Studios. Meanwhile, a playable yet unfinished build of Dead Island sequel from Yager has most recently been leaked online via 4Chan board.

When partnership with Techland is severed, Deep Silver has tasked Yager Development to make a true sequel. Their project was eventually scrapped and due to leak of an unfinished build lately, we know now how it would have looked.

Fans have already started playing the cancelled version of Dead Island 2 without any story premise after waited for so long. There are some placeholder assets and at least, you can have an idea of how it was originally planned to be.

Yager was planning to add an eight-player online multiplayer mode but those functionalities are disabled within this build of June 2015. That same year, they left out development and Sumo Digital took charge of entire project afterwards.

By no means, player can get a clear idea of what state the game currently is at Dambuster as many aspects were heavily changed. Dead Island 2 is likely to be a completely different experience on launch than its leaked version.

Dead Island 2 is currently under development at Dambuster Studios with no scheduled release date. However, a job listing for art director from April 2020 on official website hints at its possible launch for current and next-gen consoles.

When playing on regular difficulty levels, players will have a list of choices for taking down an enemy or avoid killing them altogether. In Survivor mode, you barely get a chance to choose whether to pick melee weapons or use firearms.

Resident Evil 3 Remake Player Beats Game on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

YouTuber CarcinogenSDA is back at it again with a "no-hit" walkthrough run on hardcore mode for Resident Evil 3 Remake.

Even if you are a fan of Resident Evil series who believes that newly released Resident Evil 3 Remake has not everyone hyped like Resident Evil 2 Remake of last year did, you have to admit that Nemesis is getting more attention than Mr. X.

There are many speedrunners and series veterans out there, who are already on making playthroughs and one of them is YouTuber CarcinogenSDA, who recently uploaded a complete no damage run of RE3 Remake on hardcore mode.

Aside from taking down regular Raccoon City zombies on streets, he gave useful tips on tackling Hunter Gamma enemies in sewer area as well as Hunter Beta at Spencer Memorial Hospital while playing as U.B.C.S. operative Carlos Oliveira.

In his gameplay commentary, Carci gave detailed instructions on where to find ammo, useful items and cool Easter eggs. Even though it was a no-hit run, he revealed all possible locations for First Aid Spray and herbs but picked none.

All five mutated stages of Nemesis were nicely done including his final form, without talking a blow of course. Although there was one time before his final appearance where Carci almost took a hit from the creature but survived by an inch.

Resident Evil 3 Remake received a common criticism from fans of being very short in length, yet no one complained about its difficulty like last year with Resident Evil 2 and so, maybe we will even see CarcinogenSDA do a knife-only run very soon.

Twitch streamer PointCrow lets viewers to take control via chat and beat Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

Although letting a group of fans take control of a game seems like a crazy idea for many that started with Twitch Plays interactive stream in 2014, people can eventually finish an entire playthrough over time with collective efforts.

Most recently, Twitch audience has taken part in completing 2017 action-adventure game Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This event was planned and hosted by PointCrow, who has beaten the game lately without walking.

This time, PointCrow returned with a different idea and rigged his stream to let viewers take control via Twitch chat for every five minutes to perform various moves like backflips and parry and he would only take over at times.

PointCrow takes a backseat to lead his viewers to a variety of challenges to see if they could finish them in viable amount of time. Viewers were able to take down enemies or even a Guardian often times and sometime they just ran.

He even motivates them to complete certain tasks by putting free subscriptions of his channel and gave out 20 subs when they did it. At one point, his audience managed to learn how to coordinate and perform Flurry Rush at enemies.

During original Twitch Plays Pokémon run, there were measures in place to make sure that the stream would be making progress anyhow and in that case, players would make democratic vote to determine course of in-game decisions.

PointCrow has put together a highlight reel of this Breath of the Wild playthrough on YouTube channel as well.

Instead of a bot putting those commands into game, having a person behind wheels is a much relatable experience. There were around 600 concurrent viewers that took part in this journey that took over 25 hours to complete.

Since you can fast travel to places in Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, it is possible for viewers to finish a regular run on their own. It took PointCrow's stream viewers nearly 17 hours to beat the game and Link died about 80 times.

Doom Eternal Can Run at 1000 FPS

Lead engine programmer Billy Khan of id Software claims Doom Eternal can run at 1000 frames per second.

With only few weeks left from release, developer id Software and publisher Bethesda Softworks are on full swing to promote their upcoming first-person shooter game Doom Eternal for Google Stadia, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Dev team of 2016 Doom sequel has been working hard to make demon slaying in 4K visual look glorious and id Soft is claiming to have pushed their game engine to deliver an insane 1,000 frames per second, with proper hardware setting.

Billy Khan talks detail on features of id Tech 7 game engine and how they are pushing boundaries of FPS.




RELATED: Doom Eternal Comes to Nintendo Switch

In a recent interview with IGN, lead engine programmer of id Software, Billy Khan discuss about latest enhancement made to id Tech 7 engine with a bunch of new features to show off detailed surrounding and hardware compatibility.

Latest upgrades to in-game engine have now lead to much bigger explosions and variety of particle effect in Doom Eternal. Moreover, upper limit for frames per second has maxed out for existing and upcoming generation of consoles.

RELATED: Doom and Doom 2 Gets 60 FPS Support

Whereas id Soft could go up to 250 frames per second with id Tech 6 in past, you can hit 1000 frames per second in id Tech 7. Khan even locally built a custom hardware for testing in studio and has it running at 400 frames per second.

This astounding scaling would not only make Doom Eternal look good visually on present-day consoles but it essentially makes the game future-proof for many years to come when players will revisit it with upgraded gaming hardware.

RELATED: Doom Eternal Second Trailer

Since current-gen console hardware is unable to run such FPS or even capable of handling it, developers got really interested as they can take similar approach in making games that players will revisit in future with high-end setups.

Games on consoles are stressing over achieving a frame rate between 30 and 60 frames per second for more than a decade. Third-person games usually strive near to 30 FPS and first-person titles pushes for locking at 60 FPS.

RELATED: The Elder Scrolls: Legends Halts Development

This higher frame count greatly affects player point of view in terms of smoothness, mostly in shooter genre of games. You can easily detect if frames are stumbling inn first-person perspective than noticing them on third-person.

Also, id Tech 7 will seamlessly scale with your current setup to newest ones that are not out in the market yet. This is great news for PC gaming community as they will see a performance boost every time they upgrade their machine.

RELATED: Doom Eternal Won't Have Micro-Transactions

Aside from working on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X enhancements, Khan and his team has worked to make sure that id Tech 7 will work nicely for next-generation PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles with more exciting plans for future.

With recent rise of streaming platforms, players will be hopefully able to stream Doom Eternal at 1000 FPS at some point. Meanwhile, developers can start working on new technology to step over 60 frames per second and go beyond.

Also, those who complained about Capcom reusing Mr. X character model for Nemesis upon reading a dev interview on official PlayStation Magazine UK earlier can clearly see how his improved AI has made him far more formidable.
