Why Is Half The Internet Down This Morning?
Oct 21, 2016 - 5:57 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Twitter, Spotify and Reddit, and a huge swath of other websites were down or screwed up this morning. This was happening as hackers unleashed a large distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack on the servers of Dyn, a major DNS host. It’s probably safe to assume that the two situations are related.

Domain Name Servers (DNS) act as the Internet’s phone book. Basically, they facilitate your request to go to a certain webpage and make sure you are taken to the right place. If the DNS provider that handles requests for Twitter is down, well, good luck getting to Twitter. Some websites are coming back for some users, but it doesn’t look like the problem is fully resolved.

Dyn posted this update on its website: “Starting at 11:10 UTC on October 21th-Friday 2016 we began monitoring and mitigating a DDoS attack against our Dyn Managed DNS infrastructure. Some customers may experience increased DNS query latency and delayed zone propagation during this time. Updates will be posted as information becomes available.”

Petition for Rockstar to release Red Dead 2 on PC
Oct 20, 2016 - 7:43 PM - by Varek

Because Red Dead Redemption is an amazing game and we PC players have been denied from playing it. Please don't do the same with Red Dead Redemption 2.
In case any PC peeps are interested there is a petition going on change.org which has about 30k signatures so far...

Whether Rockstar actually cares or not remains to be seen, but meh i guess think positive.

Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Beta Goes Live a Day Early on PS4 and Xbox One #CoD
Oct 20, 2016 - 6:35 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

After the first beta test for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare stuck around for an extra day, the second and final test has now kicked off a day early.

Activision announced on Twitter that the beta is now live on both PS4 and Xbox One. Those on Xbox One have to preorder the full game to gain access, but the PS4 version of this beta is (unlike the first) open to everyone. The beta is--at least for now--scheduled to run until October 24.

The first beta got off to a rough start, but Activision and developer Infinity Ward were able to iron those out. New content was introduced over the weekend, including additional game modes--you can read all about the maps and modes here. Players also found a glitch that allowed them to fly, though Infinity Ward said it was aware of that and would stomp it out.

Samsung Doesn't Like The New GTA V Sticky Bombs
Oct 20, 2016 - 5:24 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Samsung has filed a copyright claim against a video by Modded Games on YouTube showcasing a Grand Theft Auto V mod that replaced Sticky Bombs with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 phone.

The “Samsung Galaxy Note 7 [Bomb]” mod was created by HitmanNeko, a modder with an affinity for making alternate car models for Grand Theft Auto V. This particular mod simply replaces the Sticky Bomb model with that of the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. The Samsung Galaxy Note 7 initially faced a recall of 2.5 million units which later became a tricky logistical issue. Samsung eventually halted all production of the Note 7 after replacement phones began having issues with batteries catching fire.

A Mortician’s Tale
Oct 20, 2016 - 5:19 AM - by BeardedSonOfNel

Death is a game mechanic. It’s a check mate, a character motivation, a point earned, a fail state, a loss, a reset. In many games, death is everywhere. But even though death is woven into most games, rarely do games have a funeral or ritual associated with death. And that can deprive the gamer, according to Carla Sofka, a professor at Siena College who specializes in grief and online communities. “When a book or a TV show kills off a popular character, people often grieve, so it’s important to validate that. Even if something is fictional or virtual — that doesn’t mean people don’t get connected to the character,” Sofka said. “Giving people a chance to validate that grief is a wonderful thing.”

Toronto-based game developer Gabby DaRienzo wants to provide that validation. “I very much am a fan of games that have a traditional death mechanic to them and I think that mechanic does exist for a reason,” DaRienzo said. “But it’s just that — a mechanic. A way to punish or challenge the player, to convince them to keep going. Maybe your wife or your child dies at the beginning of the game and that motivates you to get revenge. There’s not much more beyond that and it feels very shallow.”

... She began work on a project that would eventually become “A Mortician’s Tale,” in which the player runs every facet of a funeral home — from answering emails to meeting loved ones of the deceased to preparing cadavers to attending the funeral. The game is scheduled to launch early 2017.

Warner Bros. Developing new Willy Wonka Movie
Oct 19, 2016 - 2:25 PM - by Evil Avatar

Variety is reporting that Warner Bros. has secured the rights to the Willy Wonka character and franchise, and is developing a new prequel movie.

After helping build the “Harry Potter” franchise and rebooting it with “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” producer David Heyman and Warner Bros. are re-teaming to revive another classic character.

Sources tell Variety that Warner Bros. has acquired the rights to the “Willy Wonka” IP from the Roald Dahl Estate and is planning a new movie centered around the eccentric character.

Heyman will produce with Michael Siegel, who is the manager of the Dahl Estate. Kevin McCormick is exec producing. “The Secret Life of Pets” scribe Simon Rich is penning the script. Courtenay Valenti and Jon Gonda are overseeing the project for the studio.

Sources reveal that the film will not be an origin tale, but a standalone movie focused on Wonka and his early adventures. It’s unknown who from the original book series, other than Wonka, will be involved in the project. If the reboot is a hit, it seems likely that characters like Charlie could be seen in future installments of a possible franchise.

Phantom Thieves Have Leaked the English Voice Cast of Persona 5, Protagonist Trailer
Oct 19, 2016 - 11:31 AM - by Emabulator

Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

We're the Phantom Thieves of Hearts and we're ready to leak some news about Persona 5! We've discovered who the main English voice actors are and have stolen all of their marketing videos from the ATLUS vault. It wouldn't be right in our eyes to keep this information, so how about we share it with the world? I know it sounds weird since we'll be revealing our identities, but that's just how we roll. So without further ado, meet the "heroes" of Persona 5:
  • Xander Mobus as the protagonist
  • Cassandra Morris as Morgana
  • Max Mittelman as Ryuji Sakamoto
  • Erika Harlacher as Ann Takamaki
  • Matt Mercer as Yusuke Kitagawa
  • Cherami Leigh as Makoto Niijima
  • Erica Lindbeck as Futaba Sakura
  • Xanthe Huynh as Haru Okumura
  • Robbie Daymond as Goro Akechi
We're still reveling in the fact that we outwitted those worthless adults at the ATLUS office, so why not also unveil the protagonist of the game? The protagonist is the newest transfer student of Shujin Academy in Tokyo. He had a bad experience with corrupt authority figures in his hometown, but he's been given a second chance to start anew. Although he lives the life of a typical Japanese high-schooler during the day (such as going to class, hanging out with friends, putting in work at the batting cage, and more), by night he's something much more than "typical." Don't let his clean cut school boy uniform and stoic demeanor fool you, because this kid is the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts. Codenamed "Joker," the protagonist is a wildcard who'll do whatever it takes to steal the hearts of adults he perceives as corrupt.

Nvidia Unveils Two Budget-Priced Graphics Cards: GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti #Nvidia
Oct 18, 2016 - 5:36 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has word that Nvidia has two new budget-priced Pascal-powered video cards on the way. The $139 GTX 1050 Ti (4GB, 768 CUDA cores) will be released on October 25th, with the $109 GTX 1050 (2GB, 640 CUDA cores) coming shortly thereafter. For reference; a $249 6GB GTX 1060 has 1280 CUDA cores, and a $199 3GB GTX 1060 has 1152 CUDA cores.

Nvidia today announced two new Pascal-powered graphics cards that come in at a budget price, the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti.

The GTX 1050 starts at $109, and the 1050 Ti starts at $139, making them the cheapest Pascal cards to date. Nvidia also offers the GTX 1060 in the $250 range, while at the high-end it has the $600 GTX 1080.

These prices put the GTX 1050 Ti and 1050 in direct competition with the AMD RX 460, which is also priced in the $100-$150 range. Nvidia claims these cards are powerful enough to run modern games at 1080p and 60 FPS.

It didn't provide specific benchmarks, but Nvidia did state, "Out of the box, the GTX 1050 and 1050 Ti are both blazing fast, with the GTX 1050 Ti on average 40 percent faster and more than 128 percent more power efficient than the closest competitive product at stock speeds." It said the card was compared against an RX 460 in games like BioShock Infinite, Grand Theft Auto V, The Witcher 3, and others.

Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

After seducing a large number of players on PC with its brutal and tactical gameplay, Mordheim: City of the Damned is available today for download on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Mordheim: City of the Damned, the first video game adaptation of Games Workshop's cult classic, is a turn-based tactical game in which you lead your Warband into bloody and lethal skirmishes. The game blends RPG elements, fast-paced tactical combat and intricate unit customization in a time wrought by chaos and rivalry where only the strongest survive. Today, you can watch its Consoles Launch Trailer before recruiting your warband and invading the dark streets of Mordheim.

Mordheim: City of the Damned takes place during a grim conflict where factions, empires, and mercenaries fight for gems, called Wyrdstone, created by a comet impact that destroyed the depraved city of Mordheim. It will be your responsibility, amidst this chaos, to take command of your Warband and storm the ruins to battle other parties, avoid abominable monsters, and gather Wyrdstone. Each nail-biting decision has its consequences: Permanent death or crippling injury that could leave your recruits without a limb or an eye.

The game includes a full campaign for each of the four Warbands: The Human Mercenaries, the Sisters of Sigmar, the Skaven of Clan Eshin, and the Cult of the Possessed. Once you feel ready, you can also enlist your single-player Warband to compete in online multiplayer skirmishes!

Star Control: Origins Announced for 2017 #StarControl
Oct 18, 2016 - 1:49 PM - by Methos

If anyone here is a fan of Starflight or Star Control series, (i.e. PC gamer over 35), your prayers have been answered! Star Control: Origins releases in 2017! From developers Stardock...

October 18, 2016 – Plymouth Michigan - Stardock announced Star Control: Origins today. Star Control: Origins is a sci-fi action/adventure game with many RPG elements set in the future where the player is the captain of Earth’s first interstellar starship that explores a procedurally created galaxy, makes contact with various alien races, explores unique worlds, and engages in action packed battles, all while trying to unravel the complex intrigue that has the galaxy on the brink of chaos.

"We Earthlings are the newcomers to the galactic scene," said Brad Wardell, Executive Producer. "The dozen plus space-faring species have been hatching their schemes since before we got out of trees. Now, suddenly, they have to deal with those meddling apes from Sol 3 who threaten to upset the plot."

The game starts in the year 2086 with the unaware humans receiving a distress call from an alien ship that has crashed on the moon of Triton, leading to the formation of Star Control, an international space agency dedicated to protecting the Earth. The player takes on the role of The Captain of Earth’s first interstellar ship whose first mission is to investigate the the distress signal.

Star Control: Origins represents a new start for the beloved franchise. Stardock acquired the rights to Star Control 1/2/3 from Atari and since then has launched a new game studio in Towson Maryland specifically to create the new Star Control title. The classic series is available for sale on Stardock's newly launched StarControl.com website with players also able to pre-order Star Control: Origins and join the Founder’s Program.

"Star Control is ultimately about us Earthlings exploring the galaxy, finding and talking to strange alien civilizations, and hopefully living to tell the tale," said Wardell. "We are hopeful those who remember the original trilogy will like the direction we’re taking here while at the same time introducing a whole new generation to the awesomeness of a game that combined action, adventure, and roleplaying in a sci-fi game simultaneously."

Star Control: Origins is scheduled for release on PC and consoles with the PC release scheduled for 2017.

Players interested in joining the Founder's program for $35 will gain access to the upcoming beta program as well as access to the Founder’s Vault, mod tools, private journals and more.

Prey - The History of TranStar Animated Trailer #Prey
Oct 18, 2016 - 10:47 AM - by Evil Avatar

Click on the Headline for the Trailer.

Prey – The History of TranStar

In the alternate future of Prey, President Kennedy survives the assassination, which sets off a turn of events leading to the central conflict in Arkane Studios’ newly announced game. After recovering from the attempt on his life, Kennedy threw his nation further into the space race by taking control of a U.S./Russian joint program and transforming a Russian satellite into a fully functional R&D facility meant to study non-terrestrials. This facility later became Talos I, a highly advanced space station owned by the TranStar Corporation. In just the scant few years since TranStar took over, the station has been used as the testing ground for some morally dubious experiments, with people on board serving as subjects – people like Morgan Yu. Discover more about the dark history of Talos I in the newly released alternate history video.

“The world of Prey is not exactly the world as we know it,” says Creative Director Raphael Colantonio. “We imagined how things would have gone if we had added one very significant event to our timeline: the discovery of non-terrestrial life forms in the 50s.”

“This discovery has all kinds of rippling consequences in our version of history, including Kennedy surviving his assassination attempt, which in turn led to more involvement from the U.S. government in space research, and so on,” adds Lead Designer Ricardo Bare. “These ripples are even reflected in the 60s ‘neo-deco’ aesthetic of Talos I.”

After awakening on Talos I, Morgan finds the station overrun by a previously contained non-terrestrial entity called Typhon, which the scientists had been studying and using to improve the scope of human abilities. Aided by strange alien-based powers, Morgan must survive the incursion, uncover the mysteries surrounding the Typhon and save humanity from the impending danger aboard the station.

Prey will launch in 2017 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Call of Duty Created as 'A Little Bit' of an F-You at EA and Medal of Honor
Oct 17, 2016 - 6:45 PM - by Emabulator

IGN has the story.

Respawn co-founder and Call of Duty creator Vince Zampella recently talked with IGN to discuss the formation of Infinity Ward and the birth of Activision's wildly popular military FPS franchise, revealing that Call of Duty was created, in part, as a jab at EA and Medal of Honor, which Zampella had worked on at 2015 Inc.

On the latest episode of our monthly interview show IGN Unfiltered, we asked Zampella about where the idea for Call of Duty came from and whether or not it was an "f-you" to Medal of Honor, to which we responded by saying, "a little bit."

Zampella then went on to discuss how–following the success of their work on Medal of Honor: Allied Assault–Electronic Arts wanted to take ownership of the studio, something he and his team pushed back against. "Originally when we formed Infinity Ward we were working with EA. We had a deal to do the sequel to Medal of Honor," he explained. "Allied Assault did so well that EA wanted to pull it in house, so they tried to force us to come be part of EA. We didn't want to do that."

When the publisher "tried to strong-arm" the studio, Infinity Ward opted to take its business elsewhere and partner with Activision to essentially one-up Medal of Honor with Call of Duty. "Once they tried to strong-arm us, we decided we don't want to be part of EA. As a team we decided that isn't what we set out to do. We ended up going and working with Activision, and yeah, Call of Duty was kind of a response to that," he added.

The Evil Avatar Mafia 3 Review!
Oct 17, 2016 - 11:23 AM - by Evil Avatar

Evil Avatar is happy to welcome writer Aaron Birch to our family and he hits the ground running with a review of Take Two's new open-world shooter Mafia III.

It’s 1968 and after years of combat in Vietnam, Lincoln Clay knows this truth: family isn’t who you’re born with, it’s who you die for. Now back home in New Bordeaux, Lincoln is set on escaping a criminal past. But when his surrogate family, the black mob, is betrayed and wiped out by the Italian Mafia, Lincoln builds a new family on the ashes of the old and blazes a path of military-grade revenge through those responsible. Intense gun fights, visceral hand-to-hand combat, white knuckle driving and street smarts will all be needed. But with the right crew, tough decisions and some dirty hands, it’s possible to make it to the top of the city's underworld.

ERA: 77% of UK Players Prefer Boxed Games #videogames
Oct 16, 2016 - 12:08 PM - by Emabulator

MCV has the story.

Digital may be the biggest sector in video games, but research from the Entertainment Retailers Association says that 77.1 per cent of UK consumers prefer their games in boxes.

Writing for MCV, ERA boss Kim Bayley explained that British gamers are hugely in favour of physical releases for a variety of reasons, including the tangibility of a boxed title and the permanence and security of owning a physical item.

Those who said they preferred digital cited the medium’s immediacy and its space-saving quality.

“It is clear that digital is far from winning the hearts and minds of Britain’s gamers,” said Bayley. “Hard discs have attractive traits which digital struggles to replicate.

“Strikingly, when respondents are classified by social class, it is C2s [skilled manual workers], the biggest buyers of games overall who skew most dramatically (84.2 per cent) in favour of physical.

“When quizzed on the reasons why they prefer to buy hard copies, the Top Five answers are unsurprisingly tangibility (owing something I can touch, feel, look at and collect) on 23 per cent, permanence and security on 16.5 per cent, convenience 12.9 per cent, habit 11.6 per cent and the ability to trade titles for other games on 7.7 per cent.”

“On the other hand it is worth acknowledging that those who favour digital copies also have arguments in their favour, a substantial 32.4 per cent citing ‘instant access to games’ and 17.6 per cent mentioning the fact that they are space-saving.”
