Weekend game, movie, hardware deals - briefly
(hx) 07:47 PM EDT - Oct,25 2014 - Post a comment
Here's a selection of this weekend's PC / Blue-ray movies, hardware deals:
TechNews - When Will The World End? - tech
(hx) 06:56 PM EDT - Oct,25 2014 - Post a comment
  • AMD Catalyst Beta Driver v14.9.2 - AMD now offers a new Catalyst version 14.9.2 Windows beta driver for AMD/ATI graphics cards, indicating this is recommended to play Sid Meier's Civilization: Beyond Earth, the just-released strategy seque
  • Civilization: Beyond Earth Benchmarked - It's not too surprising to see NVIDIA's GTX 980 taking the single GPU performance crown for Beyond Earth, but additional driver tuning may change things a bit. AMD also had a slide showing the R9 290X 8GB edition leading the GTX 980 in performance. Hmmm....The good news is that if you have any reasonably modern GPU - from the GTX 770 and R9 280 (nee HD 7950) - you should be able to run at 1080p and High or even Ultra quality settings. Lesser GPUs can still handle the game as well, and if you're curious it's possible to get frame rates well over 100 FPS even at 1080p if you drop to lower quality settings.
  • Upgrading the SSD in Chromebook & MyDigitalSSD Super Boot Drive M.2 2242 SSD Review - Because Chrome OS is designed for a web/cloud environment, it does not play nice with local storage. While you can technically have some level of file management inside the downloads folder, it is a compromise and the user experience is far from good. There is no proper music player for instance, so you are limited to using the Files app (a Chrome OS take on the Windows Explorer) for song selection, which works but is nowhere near as convenient as using Windows Media Player or iTunes for playback with support for playlists and other common features. The experience just feels incomplete if you are used to using Windows or OS X because of the limited functionality.
  • Microsoft makes it possible to use your Xbox One Kinect with your PC for $49 - Microsoft has announced a new adapter that will let you use the Kinect that came with your Xbox One with your PC. The device will cost you $49 and will allow it to work with Windows 8 and 8.1 machines via USB.
  • Demo SLAM! (Fuji Xerox,Canon,Sharp,Ricoh,Konica Minolta) - Hah that's pretty cool!
  • Microsoft explains why you should get a Surface Pro 3 - Have your computer-buying decisions kept you up at night, tossing and turning at life's unanswered questions, like "what computer should I purchase this year?" and "will I deeply regret my choice months later?" Have no fear, because Microsoft is answering these questions for you, and explaining that you should indeed buy a Surface Pro 3 instead of any of Apple's Mac computers.
  • Xbox One Update: New Friends, Snap, TV Features and More - Check out this video to see exactly what improvements will be installed.
  • Windows 10: MKV support out of the box - One item that is new in Windows 10 that was not present in Windows 8.1 is support for MKV files out of the box. For those who do not know, MKV files are a popular format for movies and the addition of this support will likely appease many Windows users. If you want to test out support for MKV on your install, you can download a sample video from Jellyfish. After the file downloads, when you open it up, Windows will ask you what app you want to use to open this type of file with; select Windows Media Player. After you select WMP, a warning will pop up saying that the player does not support this file but if you click 'Yes', the file will then play. This means that Windows 10 does have support for MKV, even if it is early in the implementation, for the file type.
  • Windows 10 Registry Tweak Will Block Future Updates - If you were one of the many brave souls that performed the registry tweak to be able to unlock new preview builds of Windows 10, you are no longer able to receive future build updates unless you re-tweak your registry. After performing that fix, you should be back into the release channel that will allow your machine to receive the new updates. As always, tweaking your registry is not for the novice user and we are betting that if you made the change in the first place, you should know how to perform the action described above.
  • Windows 10: A few new touch friendly features - The latest build of Windows 10 to hit the public release channel is build 9860 and it brings with it many new features. The first feature for touch users is that the keyboard will automatically pop up when touching a text box, the second is access to the title bar by swiping down in full screen modern apps and the third is access to the taskbar by swiping up when a modem app is in full screen mode. You can check out these three new features in the video below.
  • Google Debuts 'Inbox' As a Gmail Alternative - Google today announced a new service called Inbox. The app, which was developed by Google's Gmail team, offers a new take on email by categorizing emails and highlighting the important details therein. Inbox offers three core features: bundles, highlights, and reminders/assists.
  • Spotify Intros Family Plans, $30 for Up to 5 Accounts - Spotify has announced family plans, a cheaper way to let family members enjoy the music streaming service on their mobile devices. The Spotify Family Plan allows each member of a family -- up to five people -- to create their own account with their own playlists, favorites, and devices. Each account has access to ad-free and offline music playback and other Spotify Premium features. The main account still costs $10 per month, but each additional account costs only $5 to add. So a family with five accounts would cost $30 per month. Spotify said the Spotify Family Plan will be rolled out globally over the coming weeks.
  • Apple iPhone 6 Plus Has Yet Another Problem - You might have heard about the Bendgate issue with Apple's 5.5-inch iPhone 6 Plus. Well, it seems that is not the only problem with the device. According to many users, who have been placing complaints on Apple Support Communities, the iPhone 6  Plus is experiencing crashes.
  • Apple Releases iOS 8.1 with Apple Pay - Apple today released iOS version 8.1. The system update, for iPhones and iPads, activates Apple Pay and fixes a number of bugs. Apply Pay is Apple's mobile payment system. It makes use of the NFC radio and Touch ID sensor on the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus to enable tap-and-go payments at participating retailers. iPads can use Apple Pay to make in-app purchases. iOS 8.1 also provides access to iCloud Photo Library beta, and adds support for SMS messaging on the iPad and Mac computers. iOS 8.1 is free to download over the air.
  • Samsung reveals the Galaxy S5 Plus - Samsung has launched the Galaxy S5 Plus smartphone, which Forbes calls the "Android world's fastest smartphone," and maybe rightfully so. The refresh is fairly straightforward: replacing the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset, they've put in Qualcomm's Snapdragon 805 chipset instead-- the same hardware found in the Galaxy Note 4 and Nexus 6. Some of the benefits of the Snapdragon 805 include a significantly improved memory bandwidth, upgraded GPU, and an improved processor. One element worth mentioning, however, is that Samsung has under-clocked the CPU compared to the Note 4. While the Note 4 is clocked at 2.7 Ghz, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Plus is clocked at a slightly lower 2.5 Ghz. Still, given that it is the only true smartphone with the Snapdragon 805 chipset, that makes it the world's most powerful Android smartphone -- for now, anyway. One element that is also improved with the new chipset is the 4G performance: the Snapdragon 805 provides support for "LTE advanced" which doubles bandwidth potential to 300 Mbps downstream transfer.
  • Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact Available For Pre-order In The US - You can book the 32GB version of the Sony Xperia Z3 Tablet Compact that comes with a price tag of $499.99. Just to remind you, the tablet comes equipped with an 8-inch 1200 x 1920 Triluminos display, a quad-core 2.5 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB RAM, an 8.1MP primary camera, a 2.2MP selfie camera, microSD card slot (cards up to 128GB), and a 4500 mAh battery.
  • South Korea Prepares for 10Gbps Broadband - 1GB in 0.8 Secs - While AT&T and Verizon argue over an FCC proposal that would set 10Mbps as America's new minimum speed to qualify as "broadband," South Korea is positioning itself to introduce 10Gbps fiber service. SK Broadband will introduce its new 10 gigabit per second Internet service at the Oct. 20 Plenipotentiary Conference of the International Telecommunications Union to be held at Busan's BEXCO Center, in partnership with the Ministry of Science, ICT and Future Planning and the National Information Society Agency. With the latest advances in broadband technology coming mostly from Asian countries like Japan and South Korea, citizens of both countries are proud of the fact they are way ahead of the United States. SK Broadband says its 10Gbps will be 100 times faster than Korea's current average broadband speed of 100Mbps. Downloading a 1GB file takes 80 seconds with Korea's average broadband connection today. SK's new 10Gbps service will download the same file in 0.8 seconds.
  • USC Researchers Track When The Web Sleeps - Researchers at USC say the internet actually sleeps, almost like a living creature.
  • Stephen Hawking Joins Facebook - If you are a fan of Stephen Hawking, you can now follow him on his new Facebook page. He will be sharing his insight into the universe with all to see on his page and it's a sure bet his presence on Facebook will not hurt his upcoming biopic release one little bit. His page has also posted a video of Hawking accepting the Ice Bucket Challenge, with his three children taking the plunge on his behalf. "It would not be wise for me to have a bucket of cold water poured over me," Hawking says. The video is perhaps a fitting start given that Hawking has dealt with motor neuron disease for most of his life. While Hawking joining Facebook is certainly an exciting moment for science enthusiasts, this in part appears to be a marketing move for the upcoming Hawking biopic The Theory of Everything as well. So far there's no promotion for the movie on his page, but publicity for the film is going out of its way to make a note of Hawking's new digital presence. Even if that's the case, Hawking's thoughts are still being made a lot more accessible - his page is already approach 1 million followers after being publicized just six hours ago - and it's hard to take fault with that even if advertising may be responsible for getting the ball rolling.
  • Check Out The Chimps With Google Street View - You can check out all the chimpanzees at Gombe National Park now thanks to Google Street View.
  • Little Girl In An LED Minnie Mouse Costume Is Precious - Not only is this adorable, but the costume itself is receptive to noise and changes color when it detects sound nearby. Looks like someone's going home with lots of candy this year.
  • Creatures with Creations - 'Creatures with creations and their segregation of joy' is the title of a design research on how to embed movement related to expression and emotional release in a daily life. Due to multi functionality of computers and their expansion most people spend their working hours while siting behind a computer. By making an office chair based on the dynamics of the body and linking these body movements to the control of the interface, work can become dynamic and expressive again. An attempt on integrating joy.
  • Petaminx Tutorial - Full - Over 8 hours of Petaminx tutorial and commentary in full HD! Every step in the scramble and solve of a Petaminx is shown in real time. This is very relaxing to watch...or not? :-D
  • Autobild blows China's fake BMW X5 sky high - Autobild attempts to give the CEO a proper driving test, but it fails in spectacular fashion. This is a Chinese SUV with no apparent redeeming qualities, and the video shows what happens from there. Be warned, the clip is entirely in German, but it shows enough of the vehicle's qualities to make it clear what's happening and why.
  • Audi recalls 850,000 A4 models globally for airbags that won't - Audi has announced that it will be recalling 850,000 A4 sedans, wagons and Allroad models across the globe due to a software problem that could prevent the front airbags from deploying. All 850,000 vehicles were built after 2012. Audi has already adjusted production of new A4s to eliminate the software glitch. Meanwhile, the German manufacturer was quick to emphasize that Takata did not manufacture the affected airbags. According to Reuters, 250,000 of the affected A4s were built for the Chinese market, while another 150,000 were sold in Germany. Audi didn't provide a breakdown beyond those two countries, although it'd be a surprise if there weren't at least some affected airbags in the US market.
  • Honda CR-V 2014 4WD failure - A video shows several attempts to climb the hill, but the CR-V remains still for at least 15 second as the front wheels spin -- increasing rpm until they slide off the side of the rollers. Notably, the magazine ran into the same problem with the 2014 CR-V. Honda then released a software update, reprogramming the AWD control system to fix the problem, however the functionality appears to have reverted for the latest model year.
  • Piloted driving - the event at the Hockenheimring - On October 19th 2014 an Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept raced the Hockenheimring driverless at the physical limit. These are the highlights of the event.
  • Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" - Teaser Trailer - Get your first look at Ultron trying to tear apart Captain America, Iron Man, Thor and the rest of the world in the first official teaser trailer for Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron," in theaters May 1, 2015!
  • Late Phases - Official Trailer - (2014) - Blind war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici, Stake Land) has recently moved to Crescent Bay, a seemingly peaceful community on the outskirts of a dense forest. On his first night in his new home, McKinley hears his elderly neighbor attacked by something he's convinced isn't human. When the creature then kills his seeing eye dog, McKinley's thirst for justice turns into a one-man vendetta against the monster that's terrorizing his neighborhood. And when he's stonewalled by both the police and his fellow residents, he decides to gear up and prepare to fight the beast one-on-one. Now it's man vs myth as McKinley readies himself for what could be his final battle. With a stunning lead performance from Damici as the take-no-prisoners McKinley and jaw-dropping practical special effects, director Adrian Garcia Bogliano's LATE PHASES is a suspense thrill ride unlike any other.
  • Insidious: Chapter 3 Trailer - The newest chapter in the terrifying horror series is written and directed by franchise co-creator Leigh Whannell.

Mythos: The Beginning Trailer - movie
(hx) 02:48 PM EDT - Oct,25 2014 - Post a comment
Mythos: The Beginning is a survival horror/adventure role playing game based on the pulp-horror and monster movies of the 1930s. Set in London in 1934, Mythos tasks you with creating your own paranormal investigator from scratch and guiding them through a frightening exploration of the infamous Harborough Asylum. Three young university students have vanished while attempting to conduct a scientific survey of this dreaded place, and it's up to you to find them! Throughout the night you'll discover that Harborough Asylum's reputation is more than an urban legend, and you'll have to fight for your life against otherworldly Lovecraftian foes.

Harborough Asylum is an abandoned mental hospital located on the outskirts of London. It was established in 1882 and soon built up a reputation as London's harshest institution thanks to its brutal and controversial treatments. After a string of mysterious patient deaths, said to number more than 40 victims, it was finally closed down during World War I and has been disused ever since. Despite this turn of events, Harborough Asylum remained one of England's most infamous sites, soon becoming the subject of an alarming number of local ghost stories. Now Harborough Asylum is a place where only the most bravest (or foolish) men would dare to tread.

You play as a renowned paranormal investigator, best known for solving a famous missing persons case several years ago. Tonight, Professor Harrison Blacktail, a mysterious academic somehow connected to the asylum's past, has turned up in your hotel room at the Imperial Arms. He has commissioned you for the most dangerous case of your career: search for three missing students inside Harborough Asylum, and discover whether the terrifying legends are true.

Sniper Elite 3 - Update 1.13 - patch
(hx) 07:58 AM EDT - Oct,25 2014 - Post a comment
Rebellion rocks! Instead of releasing a DLC pack like all other developers, Rebellion decided to remind us the golden days of PC gaming, and has been constantly releasing new MP maps for Sniper Elite 3! The latest patch (1.13) for Sniper Elite 3 introduces the sixth free MP map - called Fracture - in the 'No Cross' mode.
New Features/Content:

- New multiplayer map: 'Trainyard' available for all AMP game modes, including "no cross".

Trainyard is a new multiplayer map set in an abandoned depot. Play with a mix of long sight-lines, great vantage points and hidden routes through empty carriages that give you a chance to sneak up on your enemies. Just be careful that they don't get the jump on you first.

(The update will be applied automatically by the Steam service, as long as you are not in game. To check which version of the game you are running, select 'Options' in the main menu, the version number will be displayed bottom right)

Dead or Alive 5: Last Round Coming February 17th - console
(hx) 01:41 AM EDT - Oct,24 2014 - Post a comment
Team Ninja has announced that Dead or Alive 5: Last Round is heading to the PS4 / PS3 and Xbone One / Xbox 360 on February 17th. Pre-Ordering at certain retailers will unlock new character costumes.

Team Ninja today unleashed an onslaught of new information for Dead or Alive 5 Last Round. Currently in development for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment systems, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Koei Tecmo America has confirmed that the game is schedule to launch in North America on February 17, 2015 (February 20 in Europe), and will be available at the price of $39.99 MSRP for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (physical and digital) and $29.99 MSRP for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (digital only).

With an official launch date in place, Koei tecmo America has detailed preorder incentives for retail preorders (physical copies) at the following North American retailers: Players who preorder Dead or Alive 5 Last Round at GameStop will receive exclusive costume packs including the "Ninja" (for Ayane , Hayabusa, Hayate and Kasumi), and Aloha (for Ayane, Hitomi, Kasumi and Mila ) sets. Pre-ordering at Amazon and Best Buy will give purchasers access to exclusive costumes sets including the "Showstopper" (for Christie, Helena, Lisa and Tina) and "Beach Party" (for Kokoro, Leifang, Momiji and Rachel).

Team Ninja pulls back the curtain even further, divulging more new content players can expect in Dead or Alive 5 Last Round. Dynamic fighting stages are a hallmark of the Dead or Alive series, and they are taken to the next level in Last Round. A fan favorite stage from Dead or Alive 2 makes its glorious next gen debut in The Crimson. A multi-level stage set in a bustling urban street in Asia, players start out on sprawls of tin rooftops where victory and defeat teeter on a razor thin edge. Combatants are one good punch away from being thrown through the surrounding fence, treated to one of several all-new over-the-top Cliffhanger events, and ultimately smashing through to the lower level, a dimly lit street tinged only with the light of surrounding neon signs. In new next-gen screenshots released today, characters Kokoro, Brad, Leifang and Tina can be seen traversing and utilizing Danger Zones across both levels of The Crimson, while sporting brand new costumes and even customized hairstyles.
