Fan Pre-Orders Fallout 4 Using Over 2k Bottle Caps - briefly
(hx) 07:07 PM EDT - Jun,25 2015 - Post a comment / read (1)
Last week an individual named Seth sent Bethesda 7.5 years' worth of bottle caps - that puts the amount somewhere around 2,240 bottle caps. Seth sent Bethesda these bottle caps in hopes of securing a pre-order for Fallout 4. Why bottle caps? Seth wasn't sure what the exchange rate was these days for pre-war dollars to post-war dollars. Seth took his life-savings of bottle caps, packaged them up and sent them to Bethesda in the cardboard brown box you'd expect to see in the mail (with lots of clinking caps). According to an Imgur user, Seth sent Bethesda around $62 if the exchange rate for in-game Fallout cash applied -- that would make it enough bottle caps for a game. The Global Community Lead at Bethesda, Matt Grandstaff has been met with an office that smells like beer and boxes of bottle caps. Seth's payment has been received by Bethesda, but the question remains -- what will Bethesda do?

Dying Light Dev Makes Fun of Destiny - briefly
(hx) 08:31 PM EDT - Jun,24 2015 - Post a comment / read (1)
This morning, Destiny publisher Activision announced a new deal with Red Bull, making a quest in the upcoming Taken King expansion exclusive to people who buy specific cans of the drink. Now, Dying Light developer Techland has responded with a satire of the Destiny ad. The developer tweeted, "We're jumping on the latest trend in game marketing!" This caption is accompanied by a picture imitating the Destiny advertisement from the Red Bull site. Techland's picture encourages players to drink water, proclaiming water is "delicious and great for your health," a clear shot at the energy drink. The picture also states that if you take a picture while drinking water and tag it with the hashtag "DrinkRightDyingLight," you'll get a code for premium weapons.
For Honor - Inside Dominion Mode Video - briefly
(hx) 08:21 PM EDT - Jun,24 2015 - Post a comment
For Honor's multiplayer skirmishes between knights, samurai and Vikings are more than just bloody spectacle - they're also a refreshingly fast and complex approach to medieval warfare, combining melee crowd-battles; duels that require intense focus and quick thinking; and the battlefield rhythms of a multiplayer shooter. It's a blend that really shines in Dominion mode, which challenges four-knight teams to capture and hold control points while slashing each other to ribbons. For a better idea of how Dominion works, we went straight to Gameplay Designer Bio Jade Adam Granger, who shed light on some of the mode's intricacies, as well as For Honor's three factions and the Art of Battle system that drives its swordplay.

NBA 2K16 Is Officially Coming To The PC - briefly

The PC version of NBA 2K15 was based on the current-gen version, so here is hoping that 2K Games won't pull a 'Konami/PES' on us this time around.

Batman: Arkham Knight Uses DirectX 10 - briefly
(hx) 12:33 PM EDT - Jun,24 2015 - Post a comment
The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is simply a big clusterfuck. And from the looks of it, the game reverts back to DX10 when the NVIDIA Gameworks effects are activated. And no, that's not a joke. This actually happens, and it perfectly shows how big of a mess the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight actually is.
