Steam is region locking PC games - briefly
(hx) 01:16 PM EST - Dec,17 2014 - Post a comment / read (5)
Only a day after Apple pulled the plug on online sales in Russia, Valve is also taking measures to prevent users from exploiting low currency values on Steam. Effectively immediately the company says that games bought on its platform will be region locked to the region it was purchased from. The move is aimed squarely at people who were exploiting a loophole by purchasing games as gift purchases at a fraction of the price from countries such as Brazil and Russia, and then selling them to western gamers at a discount. It's likely also a reaction to the plummeting Russian Ruble. The lock has been confirmed to be in place in Brazil, Rusia, Indonesia and their neighboring areas. Apparently, those who have activated games originating outside their region before the change will still have access to them. It's unclear if other regions where pricing isn’t significantly affected such as the US and Euro-currency countries will see the same restriction.
Assassin's Creed Unity Patch 4 is 6.7 GB - briefly
(hx) 01:43 AM EST - Dec,17 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
Patch 4 for Assassin's Creed Unity was released today for Xbox One and PS4, with the PC patch due out later this week. Ubisoft explained the need for a super-sized patch on the official Assassin's Creed website:
Part of the team's effort to enhance frame rate for players involves replacing and updating portions of the Paris city map where we are seeing issues. This explains the large size of this title update (6.7 GB). However, since a large portion of the patch replaces existing files the net increase to the game's overall size will be less than 6.7 GB.
This new patch addresses just about everything you can think of, from the game's performance in singleplayer to multiplayer matchmaking and more.
Hatred is Back on Steam - briefly
(hx) 01:37 AM EST - Dec,17 2014 - Post a comment
Destructive Creations' controversial spree killing game, Hatred, is back on Steam Greenlight.
Hatred fills your whole body. You're sick and tired of humanity's worthless existence. The only thing that matters is your gun and pure Armageddon that you want to unleash.

You will go out for a hunt, you will clear the American soil off humans with cold blood. You will shoot, you will hurt, you will kill, you will die. There are no rules, no compassion, no mercy, no point of going back. You are the lord of life and death now and you have the full control over lifes of worthless human scum.

You will also run, you will need to think, you will need to hide and fight back when armored forces will come to take you down. You will have no mercy for them, because they dare to come in your way.

Only brutality and destruction can clear this land. Only the killing spree will make you die spectacularly and go to hell.
Surprisngly, the developers did not know about it until people posted it in their forums. No comment from Valve yet as far as I know.

Assassin's Creed Unity Patch 4 Delayed - briefly
(hx) 01:29 AM EST - Dec,16 2014 - Post a comment / read (3)
Ubisoft has announced that patch 4 for Assassin's Creed Unity has been delayed.
Rigorous quality control is of paramount importance to us, and your feedback over these past weeks has indicated that it is important to you as well.

As stated last week, we'd expected to release the patch today (and we know that many are anticipating its release), but we are choosing to hold off until we can give you the improvements we’ve promised. We are committed to delivering major performance improvements, which requires that we refurbish the Paris map and that will take a few more days to hit the high level of quality our players deserve.

Thank you very much for your understanding and continued patience.

Windows 10 Xbox App For PC Spotted - tech
(hx) 09:49 AM EST - Dec,15 2014 - Post a comment / read (5)
A consumer build for Windows 10 has been leaked and The Verge has reported some of the features that Microsoft has implemented in it. According to The Verge, a new Xbox App is now present in Windows 10. Not only that, but Cortana is now present as a Siri-like program that responds to text and voice commands.
Microsoft is currently readying an updated preview of Windows 10 to focus on the consumer features of the upcoming operating system. While the company plans to detail those improvements at a January press event, a consumer build (9901) has leaked out onto the web today to provide an early look at the various changes Microsoft is making.

The biggest new feature since the recent technical preview is the addition of Cortana. A video demonstration leaked earlier this month, but the build itself shows how Cortana sits at the top of the search interface for Windows 10, responding to text and voice commands. It's all very similar to the Windows Phone version, as you’d expect, with access to the notebook, reminders, and interests. It's not entirely functional, but it's a very early look at the digital assistant in Windows 10 so the final version will likely change significantly.

Elsewhere there's also a new Xbox app. It appears to act as a gateway to the entire Xbox ecosystem, including access to achievements, friends lists, activity feeds, and the Store. Microsoft notes that it's an early preview of the app, so it may well include SmartGlass integration in future. It's also a first glimpse at how the software maker is designing its native Windows 10 apps, and the calculator app has been updated in a similar way.

Microsoft has also added new animations to the TaskView switcher in Windows 10, and the company appears to be moving towards removing the traditional Control Panel by updating the settings app with a familiar view that’s similar to Control Panel. The settings button has also been removed from the Charms Bar, demonstrating that Microsoft is clearly focusing on improving access to settings with Windows 10.
