CI Games has released a new teaser trailer for its upcoming CRYENGINE-powered WW2 FPS title, Enemy Front.
Join the Resistance! The teaser focuses on the devastation of the Warsaw Uprising of 1944, the largest military resistance of World War II, and one of the main battlegrounds for players in Enemy Front as they make their trek through Europe to defeat the Nazi forces.

Enemy Front allows players to choose their preferred combat techniques including all-out combat, sniping, stealth and sabotage as they assume control of American war correspondent Robert Hawkins and align with resistance fighters opposing the Nazi regime across European battlefields.

GRID Autosport Announced - briefly
(hx) 05:52 PM EDT - Apr,22 2014 - Post a comment
Grid Autosport, an all-new instalment in Codemasters' racing series, will be released on PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 on June 27th in Europe and June 24th in the US.

We're very pleased today to announce GRID Autosport, the next game in the GRID series and descendant of TOCA Touring Cars.

GRID Autosport aims to move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game and below you'll be finding out some of the ways we'll be doing that. Hopefully, you'll be seeing plenty of news, shiny screenshots and video on your favourite websites and in magazines on our announcement, but we thought it'd be a good time to talk directly to you about what the game is, why we've done it and the direction we're headed in. Particularly as this game is, at its heart, inspired by you guys, our core community.

On release of GRID 2, I think it’s fair to say that through listening to you guys and a after a substantial amount of reflection, we hadn’t quite achieved everything we set out to do. We’re proud of the game, really delighted with some of the great reviews for it, but we’re not above admitting that we made a few decisions that perhaps we shouldn’t have, and perhaps moved some of the aspects of the game too far away from our core fanbase.

When you’re making games, you always have to make choices – which features to include, what emphasis to put on various aspects of gameplay – even if we had unlimited resources (we don’t by the way!) there’s always people who are going to be disappointed. And we’re obviously aware, that some of you were. We’re not ok with that.
Lords of the Fallen - Challenge Trailer - movie
(hx) 05:49 PM EDT - Apr,22 2014 - Post a comment
Namco Bandai Games has published a new "Challenge" trailer for Lords of the Fallen, Deck13 and City Interactive's upcoming fantasy action-RPG.

The Champion Lord has always been a bit different from other commanders of the Fallen God's demonic army. For them, it was all about honor and discipline. For the Champion it was all about the intensity of a duel and the bloodthirsty satisfaction from defeating an opponent. Where other Lords would respectfully circle around their opponent, the easily enraged Champion will charge right into the fray with his pure brute force. He always likes to get his hands dirty, so his weapons of choice need to be close to his body, allowing him to smell the blood of his victims. Of course, at close range, his boiling bloodlust and reckless charges don't leave him much in terms of defense, but who would stand against a hulking brute like him? You?
LORDS of the FALLEN is coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC this Fall 2014!

  • Microsoft Research reveals Holograph, brings Leia hologram to life - All those cool 3D holographic interactive user interfaces that people see in sci-fi movies and TV shows are finally getting closer to reality. Microsoft Research recently showed off a new project called Holograph that was made to render large data, not just in 3D, but in a way that it looks like it is being projected above a display.
  • Fire TV vs. Roku vs. Chromecast vs. Apple TV - Google is said to be looking into ways to make end-to-end encryption tools such as PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) easier to use with Gmail. The utility is already compatible with Gmail but its complex nature has kept it from reaching a mainstream audience. How exactly Google plans to integrate PGP into Gmail is a bit of a mystery as it poses some pretty significant issues. With end-to-end encryption, only the sender and receiver can read the contents of a message. That'd be problematic for Google as the company currently scans Gmail messages for advertising keywords. What's more, Google would have to contend with the issue of lost passwords. Under such a scenario, only the end user would ever have access to the decryption key meaning the provider couldn't recover data without it.
  • Chromecast Now Live Streams MLB.tv - Are you ready for live major league baseball action straight from MLB.tv? Well, Chromecast has now added support for MLB.tv to stream live broadcasts to your TV from your personal handheld device.
  • The Start Menu will reportedly return to Windows this fall - At BUILD 2014, Microsoft surprised many by showing off a Start menu that will be making its way back into Windows. After Windows 8 debuted without the iconic feature, there was a great deal of negative feedback, and along with numerous other contentious issues surrounding the OS, it eventually lead to the departure of Steven Sinofsky. But with Windows 8.1 and its first major update, Microsoft has been slowly re-introducing classic features and has made a commitment to making the OS more mouse- and keyboard-friendly. Ever since the Start menu was shown off, everyone has been wondering when we will see it return to the OS and, according to Wzor, the answer will be this fall. Right now, it is unclear if the update to bring the Start menu back will be called Windows 8.2, or will simply be 'Windows 8.1 Update 2'. Either way, this is the first bit of semi-credible information about when we can expect the Start menu to return to the OS.
  • Canonical trying to lure XP users with the release of Ubuntu 14.04 - After the recent release of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS for servers, Canonical has announced the brand new desktop version. With Windows XP's life support having ended on April 8, the latest iteration of Ubuntu is a more-than-suitable replacement for the dead OS. Along with other XP users switching to Ubuntu, the French police force is moving over 70,000 computers from XP to Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, which is guaranteed to be supported for 5 years after the initial release. The Chief Information and Security Officer in Gendarmerie, Stephane Dumon​ has stated that their "project to replace Windows XP with Ubuntu on over 70,000 desktops is returning significant benefits; already we've lowered the total cost of ownership for a ratio of 40 percent, eliminated license costs and radically reduced technical problems."

  • British Newsreel Collection Free to Watch on YouTube - Ten Stone Baby, a British Pathe newsreel from 1935. Despite the newsreel's original title "Ten Stone Baby", the boy Leslie Bowles is actually 3-years-old. Seen with his parents in a kind of pen, Leslie is sat in an armchair. Somebody then dangles a bar of chocolate into the pen and he immediately sets to work at fetching it.

Elder Scrolls Online Accidentally Banned Legit Accounts - briefly

If you were one of the legit players that were accidentally banned during last week's cheater round-up, The Elder Scrolls Online website has good news for you.
As part of our continuing effort to combat gold spammers, botters and exploiters, we recently banned a number of accounts. After several players appealed, we were able to investigate the matter further and discovered some legitimate accounts got caught up in the sweep. We unbanned accounts last night, and have email responses going out for those affected from our support group. It is never our intention for legitimate players to be harmed as we work to keep your game free of cheaters, and we sincerely apologize for the mistake.
