DiRT 4

“DiRT 4 is all about the thrill, exhilaration and danger that is absolutely vital in off-road racing. And more than that, it’s about loving that feeling. Pushing flat out next to a sheer cliff drop. Going for the gap that’s slightly too small, or seeing how much air you can get in a buggy. They call it ‘being fearless’.”

DiRT 4 is the latest and greatest in a long line of great rally games from Codemasters right back to the Colin McRae series. Weaseltron helped out with some of the environmental effects, water, reflections, PostFX as well as optimisation for PC and console versions.

Grand Theft Auto V, X360, PS3, XBox One, PS4, PC (Take Two interactive, Rockstar Games)

Grand Theft Auto V

Los Santos: a sprawling sun-soaked metropolis full of self-help gurus, starlets and fading celebrities, once the envy of the Western world, now struggling to stay afloat in an era of economic uncertainty and cheap reality TV.

Edge Magazine: “No one makes worlds like Rockstar, but at last it has produced one without compromise. Everything works. It has mechanics good enough to anchor games of their own, and a story that is not only what GTA has always wanted to tell but also fits the way people have always played it. It’s a remarkable achievement, a peerless marriage of world design, storytelling and mechanics that pushes these ageing consoles to the limit and makes it all look easy.”

IGN: “It’s technically more accomplished in every conceivable way, but it’s also tremendously ambitious in its own right. No other world in video games comes close to this in size or scope, and there is sharp intelligence behind its sense of humour and gift for mayhem…It is one of the very best video games ever made.”

Weaseltron provided specialist technical programming services for the duration of the project with particular attention to helping direct the development of the graphics, optimisation and various technical challenges for the XBox One, Playstation 4 and then further development related to performance and graphical quality associated with the successful PC conversion. Part of the PC product’s success that Weaseltron takes great pride in being a part of was enabling the game from laptops and Intel integrated graphics cards at low resolutions right up to 4k, 60fps and pushing the top end of graphics to top-end PCs.

The game launched to critical acclaim and currently has the unique pleasure of being the top, or joint top Metacritic ranked game on PS4, Xbox One, and PC (beaten only by Grand Theft Auto IV on PS3 and XBox 360).

L.A. Noire, PC (Take Two interactive, Rockstar Games)

L.A. Noire

“A dark and violent crime thriller, set against the backdrop of 1940’s Los Angeles and utilizing revolutionary new facial animation technology, L.A. Noire blends the breathtaking action of chases and shootouts with true detective work including interrogations and clue-finding, as newly-minted officer Cole Phelps embarks on a desperate search for truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.”

Joystiq: “Thanks to the game’s MotionScan technology, every one of the game’s characters sports an absolutely jaw-dropping amount of detail, letting an actor’s entire performance come through as they speak. The effect is nothing short of revolutionary.”

GameSpot: “L.A. Noire’s absorbing investigations and intoxicating sense of style make it an unforgettable journey through the seamy side of the City of Angels.”

Weaseltron provided specialist technical programming services relating to the game’s conversion to the PC platform. The game launched to critical acclaim in November 2011.
