If you are an avid fan of Microsoft-owned Mojang's "Minecraft", you'll be pleased to hear that the company has announced a new version of the game designed specially for Windows 10 PCs. Aptly named as Minecraft Windows 10 Edition Beta, this game will make its way to the Windows Store on the 29th of July, the same day Windows 10 launches.
Some highlights of the game include:
- Craft, create, and explore online with up to seven friends playing Windows 10 Edition Beta, through local multiplayer or with your Xbox Live friends online.
- Play online and local multiplayer with other Pocket Edition players thanks to a free update, due to arrive soon after launch.
- Multiple control schemes! Switch between controller, touch, and keyboard controls with little to no effort!
- Record and share gameplay highlights with built-in GameDVR.
- Help shape the future of Minecraft: Windows 10 Edition Beta with our built player feedback mechanisms!
- Chickens, zombies, pigs, boats, armed skeletons, potatoes, zombies, baby squids, enchantment tables, villagers, naked sheep, iron golems, potions, ghasts, pickaxes, carrots, and all the weird and wonderful goodness you've come to expect from Minecraft.
The company also states that if you're one of the 20 million people who already own the PC version of Minecraft, you'll be able to download the game from the Windows 10 store free of cost. Conversely, people who don't own this version will have to pay $10 to access the beta version, the duration of which hasn't been decided yet.

(hx) 08:41 PM EDT - Jul,03 2015 - Post a comment
Activision and Sledgehammer Games' latest bit of DLC for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has finally gone live for all the other systems that aren't the Xbox One and Xbox 360. If you own a PS3, PS4 or you game on PC, you can grab the Supremacy DLC right now. The content brings four brand new maps to the multiplayer arena, as well as an all new entry in the Exo Zombies saga, that previously starred John Malkovich and now stars Bruce Campbell. The four multiplayer maps includes Parliament, Kremlin, Compound and Skyrise. Most of the maps are quite small and combat, typical of the Call of Duty modus operandi. Kremlin, however, does offer some expansive segments within the map to snipe enemies and lay down the law from a distance.

Bandai Namco announced in June that Tales of Zestiria will launch on Steam on October 20, which was happy news indeed for fans of the long-running "Tales Of" franchise. And now there's even more good news: An HD remake of Tales of Symphonia will join it in 2016.
Leading electronic entertainment developer and publisher BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment America Inc. today announced TALES OF SYMPHONIA for PC via STEAM for the Americas in order to better serve fans in the West who have adopted the PC as their preferred gaming platform.

Follow Lloyd Irving as he embarks on a grand adventure with his friends to restore mana back to the world of Sylvarant, a source of energy necessary for the survival of their world.

How will Lloyd and his friends find a way to ensure the survival of both worlds? TALES OF SYMPHONIA takes the signature real-time battle system of the TALES OF role-playing games, allowing for direct control of the character through fast-paced tactical battles.

As a special bonus, fans who pre-order the STEAM version of TALES OF ZESTIRIA will have a chance to receive a free copy of TALES OF SYMPHONIA. Multiple pre-order rewards will unlock for everyone who pre-orders the title once certain pre-order milestones are reached. Every fan who pre-orders TALES OF ZESTIRIA will receive the game, classic TALES OF Mystic Artes and weapon attachment sets. The first tier of bonus pre-order content will include four classic TALES OF male costumes, the second tier includes four classic TALES OF female costumes, and the final tier is a free STEAM copy of TALES OF SYMPHONIA.

Players of Valve's free-to-play shooter Team Fortress 2 will very shortly be able to enjoy a new update called the Gun Mettle Campaign. To join the campaign you will have to stump up $5.99, but in return you will get three months of Team Fortress activity where you test your mettle on a variety of skill-based contracts, and pick up campaign-exclusive weapons or unlockable weapons cases as rewards. There will also be three new community made maps and fresh taunts made available during the campaign. While $5.99 may sound like a steep entry fee, portions of these sales will be given to TF2 community mapmakers. The Gun Mettle Campaign begins tomorrow and is set to run for the next three months. Users can jump in at any point, but entry will be closed for the final month of the campaign.

Warner knew Batman was in a 'horrible state' - briefly
(hx) 07:25 PM EDT - Jul,01 2015 - Post a comment
Warner Bros. allegedly knew the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight was in a "horrible state" but released it anyway, according to quality assurance testers familiar with the matter. Speaking with Kotaku under the condition of anonymity, the sources stated there were only 10 testers assigned to the title, where are there were over 100 on the QA team for the console versions. One reason for the larger QA team for the PS4 and Xbox One versions was due to "getting it to work on consoles was impossible for months."
We reported literally thousands of bugs that were specific to the PC version relating to the frame rate. All sorts of fucked up texture issues. The Batmobile in particular has always fucked things up on PC.

"Testing a game this big is very different from linear or smaller games," our source continued. "You usually get a mission, chapter or area of the map, or pick one yourself, and just go to town. You bug everything you see. We had some testers bugging more than 100 bugs per day. Devs would fix what they could but they were juggling that with actually finishing the game so they were insanely slow. Only when the game was done and no new features had to be built could they actually buckle down. Once that happens they also restrict what you can or can’t bug, to ensure that they can catch up."

Our second source said Warner Bros. internal QA focused on bug-checking specifically at 720p resolutions. Most PC players with decent hardware expect to run games at 1080p or higher. If Warner Bros. was using 720p at as a benchmark, that helps explain the large performance gap.
It doesn't surprise me they knew but I am surprised they thought the PC gaming community would just sit there and take it.

Yes, Ronin may be about stealth, breaking into 2D buildings and defenestration, but it's also about murdering people with a turn-based combat system. Here's the trailer, which shows how that works:



You can play the early demo build of Ronin right now, for free. As you can see from the trailer, it's come on a long way since that was made. Developed by Tomasz Wac³awek, it's been picked up by publisher Devolver Digital for a full release later this year.
