You have quite the hardware setup there, don't you? You think you have the ultimate PC gaming rig after dropping hundreds of dollars on graphics cards, RAM, and everything else that makes your PC top-of-the-line. ACE Team's Zeno Clash 2 would like to put your fancy PC to the test with its latest update.

Frame-rate Challenge Mode is a new game mode that will pit you against armies of wireframe opponents that spawn endlessly. The idea is to survive as long as you can, with the game only ending after your framerate falls below 25FPS. It's a unique take on the leaderboard idea and one that hardcore PC enthusiasts may want to check out.

Zeno Clash 2's latest update (coinciding with the Steam Midweek Sale) will also add Steam Trading Cards and a Coliseum Challenge Mode, which will challenge players (who can access an unlimited number of allies) to survive against 50 waves of increasingly-difficult foes. The update is set to arrive today at no extra charge.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      LOL :) I end up playing this mode forever "You almost had me? You never had me - you never had your comp... Granny strafing' not rocket jumping' like you should. You're lucky that single GPU didn't melt the PCIE 3.0 lane on the MOBO! You almost had me?"

      I get the feeling that Zeno clash 2 (and the original) didn't get the appreciation they deserved. Maybe it was just too wacky for most people but I really enjoyed the crazy visuals and strange characters. It's like playing a game version of the film Labyrinth.
