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.

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.

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.
Weapons: 4 Turrets / 6 Launchers
(Per level of Caldari Battleship)
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.
