Earlier this week there was a massive performance leak of Nvidia’s new 900-series cards, which are expected to drop later this month. The closer we get, the more details find their way onto the internet. That’s why today there’s a pretty clear idea of what the smaller of the two cards, the GTX 970, might have under the fans.

The rumor mill is grinding again, and this time it's got something quite juicy in its grasp. According to The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is looking to buy Mojang for quite a sizable chunk of cash, and the deal could be signed this week.

The closer we get to the supposed reveal date for Nvidia's new range of graphics cards, the more leaks appear on the big blue internet. Last week it was seemingly confirmed that the green team would be letting their cards loose this month, and now we might have an idea of just how powerful they're going to be out the gate.

Whether we like it or not, Jurassic Park is getting a second shot next year with the launch of Jurassic World. I recently re-watched the previous three films, and I really wish I hadn't. They were great childhood movie memories, but time has not been kind to them [Ed's Note. The First movie still rocks]. Thankfully, I don't think combining that with another great piece of my childhood can do any harm.

I've never been the biggest fan of the Grand Theft Auto series, although even I have to admit that GTA V was pretty darn great. Having three protagonists really helped keep things entertaining, especially since all three where great characters with their own quirks. Yes, let's just call Trevor's behaviour a quirk for now.

Assassin’s Creed Unity is, without a doubt, one of this year’s biggest releases. Not only is it a soft reboot for the franchise, it’s also our first taste of a true next-generation Assassin’s Creed title. But will it be running at full HD by the time PS4 players we get their hands on it?

New generation consoles are expensive. I got one from FNB to make it hurt just a little bit less, but thanks to the two year repayment scheme, it looks like I'll have to wait a while longer before I can get Microsoft's new console. However, it might just be getting a bit easier to buy it in cash.

It's been very quiet on Nvidia's GPU front for a while now. Manufacturers have been coming up with all sorts of ways to resell the 700-series chips while Nvidia tinkers away with their next big release. Maxwell is set to hit desktops later this year, and Gigabyte already have a name (and release window) for theirs.

Next month, Microsoft is actually giving away some pretty decent games through its Games for Gold service – with the highlight undoubtedly being Arkane’s rather excellent Dishonored.  PlayStation Plus, meanwhile, has subjectively been getting worse and worse with each month. Will August make up for the previous few months of mediocrity?

You know how I told you that Microsoft was canning a bunch of people? Well, when the numbers came out, they were staggering; 18 000 people have lost their jobs. Most come from Nokia thanks to the merger, but it seems the Xbox team is also suffering.

I don’t know if I’m alone with this but The Last Guardian is starting to feel a bit like Duke Nukem Forever. Full of early promise but it has now been in development for 7 full years and is already 3 years past its first official planned release date.

The Order: 1886 is one of my more anticipated games. It looks stunning, and I'm a sucker for that Steam/Diesel Punk aesthetic. However, we might not be getting it when everyone was hoping.
