Posted by Zen Of Design [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 December 2017, 11:00 pm
Once upon a time, there was a game company called Cheap Ass Games who decided board games were too expensive. They decided that you likely could borrow pawns and dice from other games, and therefore sold most of their games in paper envelopes printed on crappy paper. Since then, CAG has moved onto a more […]

We were excited to hear that 2011 detective simulator L.A. Noire was headed to modern consoles and the HTC Vive for some VR action. The title received some visual upgrades, too, making the jump to PS4, Xbox One and the Switch a bit more graphically appealing. The Vive version is now available as a set of seven self-contained cases from the original game, remade for virtual reality and titled L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files.

Tip: Should I fit a Damage Control?
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 December 2017, 4:14 pm
Since native hull resistances were buffed, and the Damage Control’s contributions to hull resistances were nerfed in March, 2016, it’s good to give some thought to whether to fit a Damage Control module, or skip it. Prior to that update, a

Buy an Xbox One X and get 'PUBG' free for a limited time
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 December 2017, 3:19 pm

From December 17th through the 31st, Microsoft will give everyone who purchases an Xbox One X a copy of PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. A post on Xbox Wire says that over a million people played the battle royale game within 48 hours of being available. Not bad for a game that hasn't even hit 1.0 yet. The move makes a lot of sense; the folks who've play PUBG in Early Access for almost a year are exactly the type of audience Microsoft has been targeting with its "most powerful console ever" One X marketing campaign. That said, the appeal lovably clunky game might be lost on the folks who are buying the $500 console just to show off their new 4K TV.

Posted by Rock, Paper, Shotgun [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 December 2017, 1:00 pm
If your PC’s been feeling a bit sluggish lately, you could probably do with upgrading your main disk drive to an SSD. They’re a heck of a lot faster than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), and they also take up much less room inside your case, allowing them to sit snugly inside smaller builds with […]

Alpha Ship Spotlight - Raven
Posted by evebloggers.com [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 December 2017, 10:44 am


In today’s Alpha Ship Spotlight, we’ll take a quick look at the Raven class battleship.

Considered to be the powerhouse of the Caldari Navy, the Raven is a hard-hitting behemoth designed to engage with torpedoes or cruise missiles at standoff range, dictating the terms of engagement and keeping its adversaries at arm’s length.

Well known as a fierce damage dealer, the Raven’s weapons systems focus around its array of missile hardpoints and a generous offering of medium power slots that provide ample room to load out with a heavy tank.

With bonuses to missile rate of fire and velocity, the Raven is adept at reaching across the battlefield and applying significant damage from a distance.

In Detail:

Class: Battleship

Weapons: 4 Turrets / 6 Launchers

Slot Layout:

  • 7 High Power Slots
  • 7 Medium Power Slots
  • 5 Low Power Slots
  • 3 Large Rig Slots


(Per level of Caldari Battleship)

  • 5% bonus to Rapid Heavy Missile, Cruise Missile and Torpedo Launcher rate of fire.
  • 10% bonus to Cruise Missile and Torpedo max velocity.

How the 'Grinch bots' stole Christmas
Posted by Engadget RSS Feed [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 15 December 2017, 12:30 pm

Resellers have existed since way before the internet. But with the surge of online shopping, they have found the perfect weapon to aid their business: bots, automated software that can add products to a virtual cart and purchase them faster than any human. Even if your browser autofills personal information, like your address and credit card, and it only took you one minute to get to the checkout page -- that's too slow. Bots can buy almost anything in a matter of seconds, which is why they've become the ideal tool for people who make money by snatching up coveted items and selling them on eBay, Amazon and Craigslist for a profit.
