Posted by gamesradar news [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 10:32 am
There's a lot of Call of Duty WW2 info to digest post reveal, but getting on the beta is probably top of everyone's list right now

The Prey demo is out now (mostly, more on that later) and you can easily join in on the fun on Talos-1

Love it or hate it, I think plenty would agree that The Walking Dead season 7 was a slower burn than previous seasons

As you can see, going free-to-play and increased botting activity could only stabilize them for one year, the concurrent logins are exactly where they were a year ago and the summer dip is just coming. Unless they have one more “free to play”

Razer claims its wireless mouse is good enough for eSports
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 11:00 am

For pro gamers, wired mice have always been the only option, but now it looks like Razer is trying to change that. Following in the footsteps of Roccat, the peripheral company is releasing Lancehead - a wireless mouse which it claims is the most reliable ever made. Powered by Razer's new Adaptive Frequency Technology, the mouse automatically switches between the strongest frequencies available within its 2.4 Ghz band - resulting in lag-free mouse movement. As well as boasting a resolution accuracy of 99.4 percent, the Lancehead also allows users to save mouse settings directly to the device while simultaneously uploading them to the cloud.

Explained: Dawn of War III’s always-online requirements
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 8:52 am
There’s been slow-burning confusion about whether Warhammer 40000: Dawn of War 3 [official site] (due out mere hours from now) is going to be one of those bothersome always-online sorts of games, even in singleplayer mode. It’s reasonably apparent that multiplayer is the main focus of their RTS/MOBA dakka dakka, but there are plenty of […]

Danger Zone is a spiritual successor to Burnout 3’s Crash Mode
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 10:06 am
A couple of Criterion founders abandoned the EA owned studio back in 2014 to go their own way, forming the unenigmatically named Three Fields Entertainment. So far they’ve released the wonky Dangerous Golf and the entirely unnoticed Lethal VR. But no one wanted those. What people want from anyone with the word “Criterion” in their […]

Have You Played… X-COM: Interceptor
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 10:30 am
Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. There was a time when I’d buy anything X-COM. I sometimes look at people who have an entire room dedicated to collectibles and tat based on a specific franchise and think, “there but […]

Forza Horizon 3 going wacky with Hot Wheels expansion
Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 10:34 am
TrackMania-style kooky racing is coming to Forza Horizon 3 [official site] in May with an expansion styled after Mattel’s Hot Wheels toy cars. Horizoneers will get to roll along walls and leap through fire on some delightfully unrealistic tracks in snazzy new cars. I am always in favour of these shenanigans in every single driving […]

Atlus has change of heart over 'Persona 5' streaming restrictions
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 9:02 am

Since launching last month, Persona 5 has already comfortably earned its place among the JRPG greats. Yet for streamers, this highly acclaimed title has become more of an archaic headache than a gaming highlight. Upon launch, developer Atlus forbade fans from streaming any content past a certain point in the game, threatening to hit 'offending' fans with copyright claims or even to ban their account. Now, after community outrage, the developer has decided to relax its punitive stance.. slightly.

Improvements to Total Net Worth indicator
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 7:07 am

WIth the YC 119.3 release 1.9 on April 27th, the Total Net Worth indicator has received several improvements. The Total Net Worth counter displays a character's estimated total net worth based on inventory items, ships, and other assets. 

With this update, we have made several improvements:

  • The calculation of the total net worth is more accurate
  • Update frequency has been changed to 12 hours
  • Database queries have been optimized to reduce the server load

Due to these improvements, especially because of the more accurate calculations, you might see a change in your character's net worth. In some cases, the change might be considerable and could result in a significant lower Total Net Worth. The possible devaluation is due to the fact that we will now be excluding injected items that used to be included in the Total Net Worth calculation.

Nintendo Switch could outsell the Wii U in its first year
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 27 April 2017, 3:45 am

Nintendo's profits are up. It's claimed an operating profit of $1.6 billion (178 billion yen) for the last quarter, which, while around the same level as the last earnings report, is almost a billion dollars more than the same quarter in 2016, when it made just $701 million. It's Nintendo's first financial results after its Switch console went on sale, and since March 3rd, it's sold 2.74 million units. The company believes sales will stay strong, forecasting 10 million more Switch consoles sold by this time next year. That prediction, shy of 13 million, would put it toe to toe with the total sales of its predecessor, the Wii U, over its entire lifetime.

Astral Mining Confirms Mothball Of RP4 Facility After Death Toll Announcement
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 26 April 2017, 7:59 pm

ALENTENE - Astral Mining have released a statement this afternoon, confirming rumors that the RP4 Hemorphite Processing Facility which became the site of a massive Kyonoke Plague Outbreak in February will not return to service.

In a rare appearance by Dr. Carrelle Orsere, the corporation's usually reclusive Chief Executive, it was confirmed that the platform, which is located in the Federal system of Postouvin, has now been cleared of all survivors of the Kyonoke outbreak, and that clean-up and second level decontamination of the massive facility has begun.

Speaking of the extent of the outbreak, Dr. Orsere expressed her sadness on hearing that in some instances, "entire families had succumbed to the plague, given that it is commonplace for long term employees stationed on such facilities to live on board and move their immediate families there."

After formally revealing the final death toll on board the platform to be a total of 7,209,461 souls, Dr. Ostere spoke further regarding the RP4 platform, confirming that it will be "mothballed after investigations into the outbreak have concluded, and will be donated to the Kyonoke Memorial Research Center, to be dedicated as a memorial to all those lost and serve as a HAZMAT training facility to be used by the H4-RP4 Research Center in its new role."

It is expected that the Federal Intelligence Office's Special Department of Internal Investigation, also known as the Black Eagles, will descend on the site to further investigate the cause of the outbreak. Part of this process is believed to be the extraction of vital security data backups from the platform's security mainframe once the clean-up, which is expected to take at least four weeks, has concluded.

During the press conference, personnel from Poteque Pharmaceuticals were also available to answer questions regarding survivors from the quarantine zone, confirming reports among the press that many of the 960,000 survivors who were working on board have been allowed to depart from the H4-RP4 facility, after being screened and confirmed as clear of Kyonoke infection.

A number of survivors are however known to have been detained by the Federal Intelligence Office for further questioning in relation to the outbreak, with almost half a million more still remaining in recovery on board the H4-RP4 Inquest Center.

The Scope will continue to report on the investigation into the cause of the outbreak as further information becomes available.
