Five Reasons Why The Panasonic Lumix GH5 Should Be Your Next Camera

Here at Gaming Central, we’re always talking about the quality of graphics in a game, so when Panasonic sent us their new Lumix GH5, we quickly began testing out the quality of the pictures and videos captured by the camera. Here are five reasons why the Panasonic Lumix GH5 should be your next camera. 4k at 60fps A first for mirrorless cameras, the GH4 was known for being the first mirrorless camera to shoot video in 4k but the GH5 took it to a whole another level by enabling users to capture footage at 4k at 60 frames per second. Adding these faster frame rates, the user no longer has to sacrifice the resolution to get the best looking slow motion footage. Dual Image Stabilization 2 It’s difficult to get smooth stable footage when shooting handheld, but with Panasonic’s 5 axis in-body ima...

After Massive Fan Outcry, GTA V Modding Returns, But With Some Caveats

After Take-Two decided to send a C&D letter to the developer of OpenIV and basically shutting down the single player modding scene, people were upset and angry about it were very vocal about it. This seems to have worked from the looks of it because OpenIV just got an update. Although it’s a small update, this confirms that OpenIV is back! That’s not all though because the credits section of OpenIV contains a “Special Thanks” to Rockstar Games along with the fact that Rockstar game’s retweeted a tweet from Motherboard which talks about them saving “an uber popular modding tool” for GTA V, which can mean that Rockstar has spoken to Take-Two about this. While there’s yet to be an official confirmation from Rockstar, this is what they had to...

Wolfenstein Developers, Machine Games, Actually Give A Damn About Their Players

In this age of pre-orders and yearly release cycles, it’s rare to see a developer taking the time to actually care about their players. Turns out that the devs at Machine Games, the guys behind the new Wolfenstein game are a part of that rare breed. The following incident, shared by NeoGAF user Zushin, tells a heartwarming story of how video games can get one through an unimaginably tough time in their life, and how some developers will take the time out of their busy schedule and actually give a damn. On January 28 2015 my Dad unfortunately took his life. Back when I was a kid we used to love playing Return to Castle Wolfenstein together and that game holds a special place in my heart. A few months after Dad’s passing I got in contact with one of the Machine Games developers o...

Assassin’s Creed Origins To be More Like The Witcher 3?

We have more details about the upcoming Assassin’s Creed Origins game and it seems to be mechanically different to the previous games in terms of combat and exploration.  Gameinformer had the chance to visit the studio in Montreal and got the chance to speak with game director Ashraf Ismail. They spoke about various things about the game but there were a few things that stood out. -The way they changed the game engine, in general, is that it’s less driven by animation. Which has resulted in big improvements to responsiveness, how easily the game switches between different types of gameplay, and the environment of the game. A comparison….the map of AC:Syndicate is less than 10% of the size of AC:Origins map… -Unlike past AC games, the climbing system now allows for a...

Now This is Pod Racing! : WipEout Omega Collection Review

Fast paced anti-gravity racing with weapons, amazing music, and splendid visuals, WipEout Omega Collection is the best WipeEout experience yet. I have to say, as someone who hasn’t played a lot of WipEout, having only dabbled with it in the past, this is pod racing! But better! Developed by Sony XDev Europe, Clever Beans, and EPOS Game Studios for the PlayStation 4, this collection features a collection of content from Wipeout HD, Fury, and 2048. They’re not just ports but are actually remakes that support 4K-60fps and HDR. The gameplay from the get go felt a lot like the WipEout of previous years that I had played but smoother. I started off at the slowest speed to get accustomed to it and then ramped it up to the fastest and that was mind-blowingly fast paced. Although it was...
