The Witcher 3 infinite money exploit - briefly
(hx) 05:00 PM EDT - May,22 2015 - Post a comment
WhatsMyGame found an infinite money exploit in The Witcher 3 that involves killing some of the most innocent creates in the game: cows. When you kill a cow, you can harvest their hide for a cool 27 gold. After slaughtering such an innocent creature, Geralt will need to meditate for at least two hours for the cows to respawn, which you can then kill them over and over and over again. There are a few drawbacks to this exploit, although they're not really deal breakers in the grand scheme of things. First, the cow corpses don't immediately vanish, which could very well make you look like a complete psychopath if anyone should catch you mid-slaughter. The other is the fact the shopkeepers will quickly run out of money if you continue to sell them hide, so be mindful of that so you aren't stuck with a ton of hides in your inventory.

Neverwinter: Strongholds - the seventh expansion for the action MMORPG set in the Dungeons & Dragons' Forgotten Realms universe from Wizards of the Coast - is coming to PC in summer 2015.

Reminiscent of early Dungeons & Dragons lore, Neverwinter: Strongholds empowers guilds to reclaim a keep and its surrounding areas that have been overrun by the wild. As the lands are cleared, guilds will build defenses both in and around their strongholds using structures like archer towers to fend off attackers, while building siege structures to increase their ability to wage war with enemy guilds. Once the keep has been secured, guilds will work to solidify their foothold along the ranges of the Sword Coast.

Neverwinter is a free-to-play action MMORPG that features fast-paced combat and epic dungeons. Players explore the vast city of Neverwinter and its surrounding countryside, learning the vivid history of the iconic city in the Forgotten Realms and battling its many enemies. Neverwinter is currently available on PC and digitally for Xbox One, available free-to-play with Gold* from the Xbox Games Store.

EA and Ghost Games have announced that a new Need for Speed title is heading to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in Fall 2015.
GOTHENBURG, Sweden--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ghost Games, an Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) studio, announced today the return of Need for Speed in a full reboot of this storied franchise. The game delivers on what the fans want, and what Need for Speed stands for - deep customisation, authentic urban car culture, a nocturnal open world, and an immersive narrative that pulls you through the game.

CDPR: Smoke Effects Would Kill Any PC - briefly
(hx) 08:44 AM EDT - May,21 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
CD Projekt RED has finally spoken the truth about the visual differences between the VGX trailer and the final version of The Witcher 3. As most of us have already guessed, the new rendering system is to be blamed for these less impressive visuals. Not only that, but CD Projekt RED acknowledged the fact that consoles held back the PC version.
Did the console versions restrict the PC version?
"If the consoles are not involved there is no Witcher 3 as it is," answers Marcin Iwinski, definitively. "We can lay it out that simply. We just cannot afford it, because consoles allow us to go higher in terms of the possible or achievable sales; have a higher budget for the game, and invest it all into developing this huge, gigantic world. "Developing only for the PC: yes, probably we could get more [in terms of graphics] as there would be nothing else - they would be so focused, like if we would develop only on Xbox One or PlayStation 4. But then we cannot afford such a game."

Why did the graphics change?
"If you're looking at the development process," Iwinski begins, "we do a certain build for a tradeshow and you pack it, it works, it looks amazing. And you are extremely far away from completing the game. Then you put it in the open-world, regardless of the platform, and it's like 'oh shit, it doesn't really work'. We've already showed it, now we have to make it work. And then we try to make it work on a huge scale. This is the nature of games development." It was captured PC footage, not pre-rendered, Badowski confirms, but a lot had to change. "I cannot argue - if people see changes, we cannot argue," Adam Badowski says, "but there are complex technical reasons behind it.

"Maybe it was our bad decision to change the rendering system," he mulls, "because the rendering system after VGX was changed." There were two possible rendering systems but one won out because it looked nicer across the whole world, in daytime and at night. The other would have required lots of dynamic lighting "and with such a huge world simply didn't work". It's a similar story for environments, and their texture sizes and incidental objects. It was a trade-off between keeping that aspect of them or their unique, handmade design. And the team chose the latter. The data-streaming system couldn't handle everything while Geralt galloped around.

The billowing smoke and roaring fire from the trailer? "It's a global system and it will kill PC because transparencies - without DirectX 12 it does't work good in every game." So he killed it for the greater good, and he focused on making sure the 5000 doors in Novigrad worked instead. "People are saying that 2013 was better but actually there's plenty of things that improved since 2013," Michal Platkow-Gilewski points out. "Size of the world, frames-per-second..." "Yes!" realises Adam Badowski. "The game's performance: people say the game is well optimised. This is the first time for this company!" It's the first smile I've seen from him all interview.

Marcin Iwinski picks it up: "Maybe we shouldn't have shown that [trailer], I don't know, but we didn't know that it wasn't going to work, so it's not a lie or a bad will - that's why we didn't comment actively. We don't agree there is a downgrade but it's our opinion, and gamers' feeling can be different. If they made their purchasing decision based on the 2013 materials, I'm deeply sorry for that, and we are discussing how we can make it up to them because that's not fair. "It's very important to stress: we are continuously working on the PC version, and we will be adding a lot of stuff, and there is more to come. We've proven it in the past that we support our games and we will be looking at the feedback and trying to make it better."

Expeditions: Viking Announced + Trailer - briefly
(hx) 06:54 PM EDT - May,20 2015 - Post a comment
Logic Arts sent out a press release announcing its next historical RPG, Expeditions: Viking, which is the follow up to Expeditions: Conquistador.
Copenhagen, Denmark -- May 20th, 2015 -- Danish indie developer Logic Artists announced today that they have begun development on the second installment in their historical RPG Expeditions series, Expeditions: Viking. Set in the late 700’s A.D., Expeditions: Viking is a tactical RPG where players inherit the leadership of their clan. Charged with elevating their clan’s status, players must seek adventure in far-away lands and defending their home from their enemies, both foreign and domestic.

With the announcement, Logic Artists has also revealed some details about the game. Building upon the original designs of their first game, Expeditions: Conquistador, the Logic Artists team have also taken player suggestions to heart, announcing that the Expeditions Sequel will have an upgradable player village, which they must return to between expeditionary raids to build and protect. Over-land travel and combat will now exist as part of the same layer, transitioning from unrestricted, exploratory movement to turn-based combat smoothly. Additionally, players will see their character manifested in the game world, not just as a role-playing character for conversations and decision making (as was in the first of the Expeditions series), but also visibly represented in travel and combat as a custom character.
Xbox One $60 Over-the-Air TV Tuner Out Now - console
(hx) 06:50 PM EDT - May,20 2015 - Post a comment
Microsoft is doing its part to help people cut the cable TV cord with an official Xbox One TV tuner for U.S. broadcast channels. The $60 tuner is manufactured by Hauppauge, and plugs into the Xbox One via USB. Users can then hook up an over-the-air antenna for watching live TV channels through the console. Microsoft is also bundling the tuner with a Mohu Leaf 50 antenna for $100, for a savings of $30. Going through the Xbox brings some benefits that you might not get by plugging an antenna directly into the television. The console provides a full channel guide, and can pause or rewind up to 30 minutes of live programming. It can also stream the video to phones, tablets, and computers on the same W-Fi network using Microsoft's Smartglass apps for iOS, Android, and Windows. Kinect users can also change channels using voice commands.
