Dragon Age: Inquisition Cooperative MP Revealed - briefly
(hx) 12:30 AM EDT - Aug,27 2014 - Post a comment
Cooperative multiplayer is coming to Dragon Age: Inquisition, and the four-player adventure isn't as close to Mass Effect 3's online mode as you might expect. Both share qualities, particularly in their economies, but in almost every instance, Inquisition's levels, characters, and economy are significantly deeper. Inquisition's story is an enormous, 200 hour commitment for completists, so BioWare wants multiplayer to work in short 20-30 minute bursts. Each of the three multiplayer campaigns available at launch randomly generates a large level comprised of smaller sections. you'll fight through five of 10 pre-designed areas in one go, each with distinct variables. Next time, you may see the same stage in a new spot, or an entirely different collection of arenas entirely, all with different enemy encounters, ideally making multiplayer missions replayable indefinitely.

The Evil Within's Voice Cast Announced - briefly
(hx) 12:21 AM EDT - Aug,27 2014 - Post a comment
Bethesda Softworks has announced the voice cast for Tango Gameworks' survival-horror game, The Evil Within.
The Evil Within, out October 14th in North America, embodies the meaning of pure survival horror. Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story are combined to create an immersive world that will bring players to the height of tension. With limited resources at their disposal, players will fight for survival and experience profound fear in this perfect blend of horror and action.

Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley, who is no stranger to horror, having recently played Freddy Krueger in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, lends his voice to The Evil Within's main antagonist, Ruvik. Making his video game debut, Anson Mount, best known for his role as Cullen Bohannon in AMC's Hell on Wheels, assumes the role of lead protagonist Sebastian Castellanos. Players assume the role of Sebastian, a veteran police detective, throughout the game in their terrifying struggle for survival.

Rounding out the cast is Jennifer Carpenter, well-known for her role as Debra Morgan in the hit Showtime series Dexter, who plays Juli Kidman, Sebastianís Junior Detective partner. As part of recently announced Season Pass plans, players will be able to assume the role of Juli Kidman in post-launch content to experience The Evil Within from an entirely new perspective.

"One of the most crucial elements to any successful survival horror game is the setting and sound, which includes the depth and authenticity of the voice acting," said Mikami. "We brought together a great cast of experienced actors to help ensure that players really believe our charactersí emotions and the tension they feel in every scene."

In The Evil Within, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners are called in to investigate a gruesome mass murder. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel whatís behind this evil force.

Slated for release on October 14th in North America (October 16th in Australia and October 17th across Europe), The Evil Within is in development for the Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation 3, and PC.

The Crew Will Support 5760*1080 Resolutions On PC - briefly
(hx) 01:14 AM EDT - Aug,26 2014 - Post a comment
The second closed beta phase of The Crew is currently under way and some new information about the PC version of the game has surfaced. According to Ubisoft, the development team targets a 1080p+30fps experience on all platforms (PC, Xbox One and PS4), though the PC will also support 5760*1080 for triple screen set-ups.
The final game will run in 1080p with 30 frames per second on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC, and will support up to 5760*1080p on PC for triple screen set-ups. Right now the team is focusing on providing an optimal experience for all players. You can unlock it in the file you've found, but it may affect the game's performances. Your call.
Note: In order to increase the framerate lock to 60fps, PC gamers will have to edit the "PCScalability.xml" file that is located inside the "C:\Users\Documents\The Crew" folder. Just search for the framerate option and change it from 30 to 60. Changing that option to anything higher than that will not work as that option will reset itself to 60.

Don't Buy SimCity 4 from Origin - briefly
(hx) 12:30 AM EDT - Aug,26 2014 - Post a comment / read (2)
The maker of the Network Addon Mod for SimCity 4 has warned gamers against buying the game from Origin. Turns out that the unpatched version sold on Origin cannot be updated because of changes to its copy protection. PC Gamer has the story.
SimCity 4 is more than ten years old, but given the relative dearth of SimCity games since it came out, it remains a popular way for fans of the franchise to get their fix. But the maker of the Network Addon Mod says gamers should be careful about where they buy it: The version of the game being offered by Origin is the unpatched retail release, and because of changes to its copy protection it cannot be updated, nor can it take full advantage of custom content and mods.

As explained on the SimCity 4 site SimTarkus, the Network Addon Mod (NAM) requires a minimum of SimCity 4 version 1.1.638, the version that results from applying the EP1 Update 1 to the retail version of the game. But the a href="https://www.origin.com/en-ca/store/buy/56334/pc-download/base-game/deluxe-edition">Origin is not capable of being updated because it modified the unpatched version of the game, 1.1.610, to replace the SafeDisc copy protection with Origin's online DRM.

"This modification, however, changes the checksum of the executable, just as the NoCD hacks did, which not only causes it to be rejected by the NAM installer, it also prevents the EP1 Update 1 patch and the BAT Nightlight patch from being installed, as well as the official first-party content creation tools, like the Lot Editor and the Building Architect Tool (BAT). In effect, this forces the user to remain at Version 1.1.610, deprived not only of the full function of the wide array of custom content available for the game, but of basic fixes to the game that have been available for 10 years," NAM developer Tarkus wrote. "Originís digital version of SimCity 4 Deluxe is not just unpatched, itís unpatchable."

Tarkus also linked to a SimTropolis forum post from earlier this month in which an EA support rep acknowledged the limitations of the Origin version of the game, but insisted that it's behaving as it's supposed to.

"The game that you bought from us is working as intended and it is not broken," the rep explained. "The reason why mods are not working on your copy is because we do not support mods for the title. And we do not support the upgrades that you want to do in game."

Civilization: Beyond Earth Trailer - movie
(hx) 01:32 PM EDT - Aug,25 2014 - Post a comment
Civilization is the juggernaut of the turn based strategy world, and has been for quite some time now. The formula remained mostly the same since the first Civ game was released in 1991. However, the Civilization series is about to take a departure from the familiar by custom seeding many different aspects for each new game, with a possible 15,000 outcomes, not including advanced world settings.

Unlike previous Civilization games - which give a list of nations, each with a unique unit or two as well as a unique bonus set - Beyond Earth gives players five sets of choices to customize. The first set is called sponsors, of which there are eight. This is intentionally the very first step, as the developers thought it to be the most important thanks to having the most far reaching and long lasting effects. After that, players are given five choices for colonists to further diversify each play through, each one specializing in one of the classic aspects of the game. Will you further buff your strongest skill, or play it safe and spread out the bonuses? Next, players are given five options for their starting spacecraft perks. This is a crucial step, as - unlike in previous Civ games with mobile settlers - your first turn is an immediate settling of your first city. The penultimate option in regards to your civilization in particular: the cargo within that colonizing spaceship. Again, you're given five options to choose from, each one with a small bonus for your initial colony. Will you take another citizen, worker unit, soldier, tech, or clinic? Lastly, your choices end with the planet you will land on. You are given three types of worlds: Terran, Protean, and Atlantean. Terran is the most familiar and Earth-like, and Protean and Atlantean are extremes with more or less land, respectively. There will be quite a few options in regards to map customization as well, which is reminiscent of previous Civilization games.

Also announced were the details of Firaxicon, Firaxis' new convention. Billed as an official fan event for all games put out by Firaxis, it is scheduled for September 27th and 28th at an Embassy Suites in Baltimore, Maryland. The event will include tournaments, multiple presentations - including one by Sid Meier - Firaxis "swag," and a "Firaxis Feast." Tickets are $40, but are strictly limited.

Beyond Earth is scheduled to release on October 24th.
