Destiny Patch 1.0.2 Now Live - patch
(hx) 06:32 PM EDT - Oct,01 2014 - Post a comment
Bungie has announced that patch 1.0.2 for Destiny is now live.
Summary:
With this patch, we address some widely-discussed concerns with how Engrams are earned and claimed. Strikes have become more rewarding, and the rewards gained from them are more predictable. Also affected is the rotation of maps that appear in the Crucible.

Cryptarch
  • Legendary (purple) engrams will always produce a Legendary quality item or higher
    • Note: Legendary engrams that exist in your inventory will change to Rare quality items when the patch is applied. However, decoding these engrams will still produce the same results as before
  • Rare (blue) engrams will always produce a Rare quality item or higher
    • Chance for Legendary gear increased
  • Materials: Ascendant Shards and Ascendant Energy promoted to Legendary quality (from Rare quality)
Rewards
  • Rare (Blue) and Legendary (Purple) Engram drops added to the potential rewards for:
    • Vanguard: Tiger Strike Playlist
    • Daily Heroic Missions (first time per day)
    • Weekly Heroic Missions (first time per week)
  • Known issues
    • When selecting a higher difficulty for daily missions, XP Bonus not show in the reward display
    • You will still get the XP bonus, you just won't see it in the UI
Crucible
  • Reduced time limit on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash from 15 to 12 minutes, bringing them in line with non-vehicle maps in those playlists
  • Lowered weighting on Bastion and First Light in Control and Clash so they appear less often in those playlists
Windows 10 Technical Preview - DOWNLOAD - tech

As promised, Microsoft has released the Windows 10 Technical Preview and you can download it now! The OS, which is designed to give you a small flavor of what will be included in the final release of Windows 10, is still an early build. The build number for this release of the OS is 9841 (despite the fact that later builds are currently floating around inside the walls of Microsoft). As with any non-commercial release, you should not install this OS on production hardware as there could be bugs that make some software not work as intended. If you have the ability, installing this OS inside a virtual machine is the safest option and if you can't do that, I suggest you designate an older machine as a testing device and install Windows 10 on it.

As with earlier OS previews, this one won't live on forever, of course. In Microsoft's release notes, it states that the 'Technical Preview expires on April 15, 2015. If you're running Technical Preview, we'll send you notifications beginning on April 1, 2015 to remind you that it's time to upgrade your PC to a newer version.'

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Heading to SteamOS - briefly
(hx) 05:37 AM EDT - Oct,01 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
2K just revealed that Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel will be made available on Valve's SteamOS at launch this October. Borderlands 2 is also now available on the Linux based OS and 75% off this week to celebrate. (Offer ends Oct 2nd at 10am PDT). Having the third entry in the shoot-and-loot series arrive day one on SteamOS is rather impressive and could be a good sign that large developers are willing to embrace the platform. Yet, Microsoft's announcement of Windows 10 today could very well spell some trouble for Valve's plans for pushing for Linux based systems with its return to more sensible UX decisions for desktop environments. Only time will tell, especially with Valve’s Steam Machines being delayed into 2015. The good news at the end of the day is that the consumer wins. You now have the option to boot up a big name franchise on Windows, Mac or Linux day one, something that I'd love to see more of in major releases. Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel releases for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 14th.

Microsoft announced today that its new OS will be called Windows 10 - and not Windows 9, as had been widely expected. The company also unveiled its new Windows Insider Program, and confirmed that the new OS will be available for early adopters and its "most enthusiastic" users to download tomorrow. But when will the OS actually begin rolling out to customers? Microsoft isn't yet committing to a firm date, but has said that it plans to release the full version of Windows 10 around the middle of next year.

In a video uploaded to YouTube and shared on Microsoft's official Windows blog, Joe Belfiore, leader of the Windows product definition and design team, guides the main changes people can expect in the preview. Some of the biggest changes include the task view and snap assist features revealed today. Additionally, the preview will feature the return of the Start menu to Windows, a feature heavily requested by users.
