  • MIT develops wireless trackpad for your thumbnail - Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a tiny wireless trackpad that can be worn on a thumbnail. Called NailO, the prototype trackpad is similar to the stick-on nails sometimes used as a fashion accessory. It attaches to the user's thumb and can be controlled by running a finger over its surface. The researchers say an advantage of the device is that it's discrete. Running a finger over a thumbnail is a natural activity, so most people wouldn't notice this as a deliberate action to control a device.

  • Rise of the Triad - Patch 1.5.1 Enables Crossplay Between Steam & GOG - Interceptor Entertainment has released a new patch for Rise of the Triad. This patch will update your game's version to 1.5.1, and comes with Crossplay Multiplayer support between the game’s Steam and GOG versions. As Interceptor noted, Rise of the Triad is the first game offering such a Crossplay support, so kudos to them. In addition, this patch enables 64-bit compatibility, meaning that this update will improve performance on a variety of PC configurations. This patch also comes with various fixes for issues that have been reported by fans (though Interceptor has not revealed yet a properchangelog of it). This update is 1.2GB in size and will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client.

Although most commonly used in commercial movie theaters, the technology is catching on at home with recent Blu-rays like Transformers: Age of Extinction and Expendables 3 featuring the codec. Of course, Atmos is not the most realistic way to experience audio as it requires no less than seven speakers, some of which must be mounted on the ceiling or floor. Still, those will the setup will be able to experience one of the most audibly immersive experiences of the format yet. The codec will only be available on the PC version of the game.

According to the patch notes, bug MC-79079 (which 'can force a server to freeze') and bug MC-79612 (which 'can force a server to go out memory') have both been fixed. 
  • Steam Locks Features to Paying Customers Only - Valve is set to introduce a new set of restrictions on Steam accounts in an effort to reduce the occurrence of spam & phishing on their service. One of which includes making group chat exclusively for those of whom have spent at least $5 in the store.

Star Wars Battlefront Reveal Trailer - movie
(hx) 05:32 PM EDT - Apr,17 2015 - Post a comment
Star Wars Battlefront goes on sale November 17th on PS4, PC and Xbox One.
Star Wars Battlefront will allow fans to live out a wide range of heroic moments and intense battle fantasies of their own – firing blasters, riding speeder bikes and snow speeders, commanding AT-ATs and piloting TIE fighters and the Millennium Falcon. These battles will take place on some of the most iconic planets in the Star Wars universe, including Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and the previously unexplored planet, Sullust. Gamers will be able to play as some of the most memorable characters in the original trilogy such as Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Star Wars Battlefront will feature a wide range of modes tailored for different types of battles, from larger 40-person competitive multiplayer to crafted missions that are played solo, with a friend via split-screen offline or co-operatively online.

Fans who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront will be among the first players to experience the Battle of Jakku*, the pivotal moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Outer Rim. Taking place in the aftermath of the Rebel victory in the Battle of Endor, players will experience the events that created the massive, battle-scarred landscape of Jakku shown in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Players who pre-order Star Wars Battlefront can fight the battle one-week early starting on December 1, 2015. All other players will get access to this free† content on December 8, 2015.


For starters, Star Wars: Battlefront will not have a single player game mode. Instead, the game will focus on multiplayer and cooperative modes rather than spend resources crafting a campaign. That's bad news for folks who wanted to live out some of the series' most epic battles in a story mode but, given how lackluster most narratives are for games primarily built to be an online shooter, maybe this isn't actually such a raw.

As for what multiplayer fans can expect, IGN has a few additional details courtesy of an interview with DICE's Patrick Bach. The co-operative game mode can be played online or in split-screen, which should make more than a few Jedi and Sith quite happy. Bach explained that the co-op missions are designed to be shorter than the multiplayer shootouts, with higher difficulties available for those who enjoy a challenge.

Update: ICE assistant producer Jesper Nielsenon has confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront will not feature Battlelog, as Battlefield 3 and 4 have.
Pillars of Eternity Patch v1.04 - patch
(hx) 11:04 AM EDT - Apr,17 2015 - Post a comment / read (5)
Obsidian Entertainment has released a new patch for its amazing RPG, Pillars of Eternity. This patch will update your game version to 1.04, and comes with a number of fixes and improvements. This patch will be auto-downloaded next time you start the Steam client.
Items, Spells, and Abilities
  • AoE indicators should now properly resize if the caster has a sub 10 Intellect score.
  • Fixed an issue with over-time aura spells not applying the correct value on the final tick.
  • Knock Down will now correctly be applied for the full duration of the effect.
  • Mantle of The Dying Boar will now trigger at 33% Endurance with the effect of 5 Endurance a tick.

  • Blooded should trigger properly in all cases now.
  • Boar Animal Companion bonus damage should now work as intended.
  • Prone Reduction mod should now work correctly.
Quests and Companions
  • Fixed Aloth and Kana speaking when they weren't in the party in one of the last levels.
  • Sagani's fox-specific banters now require the appropriate items in the player inventory.
  • Falanroed's dialogue no longer displays a script node.
  • Durance will now properly discuss your dream with you if you've already discussed his staff.
  • Relaxed some constraints on Durance's quest conversation. This allows all characters, regardless of background or stats, to finish his quest.
  • Players can now loot the nest in Oldsong.
  • Fixed an invalid conditional check in one of Pallegina's conversations.
  • Heritage Hill tower will be fully revealed when exploring the map.
  • Fixed spawn issue in a scripted interaction near the end of the game.
  • Fixed an invalid creature spawn in the Ogre Lair in Od Nua.
  • Sagani no longer references the antagonist by name before you know it.
  • A container in the Catacombs of Od Nua will now remember if it was looted.
  • The "Master's Tools" quest will now work if you have the required items before starting the quest.
  • The "A Two Story Job" scripted interaction will not require a second grappling hook to climb down from the window if one was already used to climb up.
General Fixes
  • Fix for camera movement problems when the game is paused or in a cutscene.
  • Fix to retroactively restore party movement in saves that display movement speed problems.
  • Made some fixes to movement speed problems that were being reported (e.g. Boots of Speed).
  • Fixed stacking health problems with the gul's "Vomit Blood" ability. This fix should retroactively fix your saved games.
  • Optimized Save/Load game system for better performance.
  • Optimized how scene transitions are handled for better memory usage on 32-bit machines. This may allow players to transition to new areas without running out of memory.
  • Sound Sets from hired companions will now be properly restored when adding them to the party from the stronghold.
  • "All Stronghold Upgrades" achievement now checks 25 upgrades instead of 26. This will properly reward the achievement if you already have fully upgraded your stronghold.
  • The "Kill All Dragons" achievement will now properly fire if they are killed indirectly (like by a trap). This is a retroactive fix and will be rewarded if the dragons are already dead.
  • Fixed issue where store prices were getting exceptionally large after receiving a discount.
  • Fixed issues with gaining infinite XP from bad Stronghold data.
  • World time will not get very large in some cases after Save/Load.

  • Restored all the missing effects in the intro cutscene.
  • Removed Blunderbuss item from an early game loot table.
  • Changed the cursor type on the blood pool in the Temple of Skaen to conversation.
  • Fixed a few save game issues with dead summoned creatures.
  • Fixed issue where occasionally a crash would occur when initializing the Steam API.
  • Draggable windows are now handled properly when running at very high resolutions.
  • Swamp Lurker's animation won't spaz anymore when the game is paused.
  • Fixed an issue to prevent binding mouse buttons to window controls.
  • Game will now pause if you Alt-Tab during a cutscene in full screen mode.
  • Audio will now resume properly if the game loses focus.
  • Fixed an issue with infinite load screen if you transition while hovering over a container.
  • Characters will now wait for their idle animation before trying to reload which fixes an animation sync issue.
  • Damaged characters performing AoE attacks will not overload their AI state stacks anymore.
FYI, May's patch 1.05 will include more fixes along with "some additional new features" such as the ability to change player portraits and voice set during the game. New shaders for Afflictions such as Petrified are also in the works.

We're also addressing these top 5 priority issues as identified by the community.

Top 5 Fixes:

  • Punkbuster fixes - We're addressing some of the heavy CPU usage seen by players
  • Nvidia DirectX driver fixes - We're working with our partners at Nvidia to create new drivers to prevent the most common crash issues
  • Extended Conquest time - We've extended the length of Conquest matches by increasing the number of tickets on both Large and Small
  • Fixed TDM spawns - We've adjusted spawn points and the spawn system for better TDM spawning
  • Multiple weapon balance tweaks - We've addressed some common complaints with the weapon balance, there will be more coming soon
  • For further details into these fixes and more, check out the Battlelog forum post at http://battlelog.battlefield.com/bfh/forum/threadview/2955064791152946448/, where we can confirm everything you see there will be addressed in the first patch.

In addition to this, we're adding the Rent-A-Server program functionality for all console platforms with this patch, so players can customize the multiplayer matches to their liking and then invite their friends to play.
