The Creatures (Kootra) got SWAT Raided (SWATTED) - briefly
(hx) 02:52 PM EDT - Aug,28 2014 - Post a comment / read (2)
This practice - called "swatting" - is shockingly common, and usually done by untraceable means. You'd think SWAT members would catch on by now that if the person they're sent to arrest is playing Counter-Strike, it was probably a false tip.

Dragon Age: Inquisition - MP Gameplay Trailer - movie
(hx) 02:10 PM EDT - Aug,28 2014 - Post a comment
Dragon Age: Inquisition releases on November 21, 2014.



In related news, PC Gamer has posted a hands-on preview of the game. Here's a bit:
"Big levels obviously can't narrate themselves; that's impossible. The scope of that is too big. They need to give the player opportunities to tell their own stories and ultimately that's what comes from exploring this open-world gameplay." I get a feel for what Darrah's talking about in an area called the Dales Highlands, a zone that ends up being my favorite in Inquisition. The intro to the Dales is incredibly light. An arcane, malicious blizzard has grasped the area's rough, typically-thawed cliffs, icing the river that nearby Sarhnia depends on for food and trade. What I notice throughout this area, and appreciate, is the lack of heavy-handed exposition about who, what, where, and why: the theme of the Highlands, as I discover simply by fighting through it, is driving out an invader and advancing the frontline.

The Red Templars (a faction of rebel, overzealous Templars) are to blame for the magic winter, and I see their signature pocking the cliffs as I climb: red lyrium. This potent, dangerous anti-magic substance is the source of the corruption that's tainted these Templars, and huge crystalline shards of it are piercing the Highlands. I cleave and shield-bash through a fourth pack of the misguided knights in an ice tunnel; the whole screen is a glow of blue light filtered through pristine ice and unnatural, saturated red emanating from the lyrium. These colors tell the story as well as any dialogue.

Further up, I fight a Red Templar Behemoth, less a soldier and more a 15-foot-tall, faceless lump of bipedal lyrium. For the first time I have to toggle-on Dragon Age's tactical camera, renovated for Inquisition, to kite the monster and deliberately spend my party's abilities. It's here that I realize how comfortable Inquisition feels when played as a real-time action-RPG; even more than it did in DA2. Broadly, the combat isn't as demanding as a conventional action game—there's auto-attack—but it also never drifts into, say, over-generous hit detection or the disconnected ‘combat dancing' of some MMOs.

"We're going for a hybrid of Origins and Dragon Age 2 stuff," Dragon Age creative director Mike Laidlaw says of the combat. "We want the responsiveness of DA2, that's a biggie, but the influences of Origins are undeniable. We did want to find that balance." Although I played Inquisition on PC, unfortunately I wasn't able to do so on a mouse and keyboard. Still, it was strangely reassuring how well the tactical approach to combat handled on a controller, of all things. Plotting commands was simple, clean, and helped by an interface that mostly mirrors what we had in Origins. Unlike that game, though, Inquisition uses highlights and color to make that visual information more interesting and readable. The camera behaved well throughout. Automated AI settings are preserved, too, like how much mana a mage should keep in reserve, or at what HP threshold a character should down a potion.

Ubisoft Is Aiming At 60FPS For PC In The Crew - briefly
(hx) 03:25 PM EDT - Aug,27 2014 - Post a comment / read (5)
Yesterday, I informed you about the 30FPS lock that is currently present on The Crew's PC beta build. While Ubi-Valentin (Ubisoft's community manager) said that the team aims for 1080p and 30fps on all platforms (PC, Xbox One and PS4), Natchai_Ubisoft (another community manager at Ubisoft) claimed that the team is actually targeting 60FPS on the PC.
The reason you could alter the FPS in the config file is because our team is actually working on getting 60FPS for PC. The reason why it hasn't been communicated before this is because we didn’t want to make a promise we couldn't deliver on.
But read this correctly:


We are aiming at a 60 FPS on PC for the launch of the game and the actual Beta doesn't represent the final game

So, I hope that helps?
The Crew will hit the PC on November 11th!

Dragon Age: Inquisition Cooperative MP Revealed - briefly
(hx) 12:30 AM EDT - Aug,27 2014 - Post a comment
Cooperative multiplayer is coming to Dragon Age: Inquisition, and the four-player adventure isn't as close to Mass Effect 3's online mode as you might expect. Both share qualities, particularly in their economies, but in almost every instance, Inquisition's levels, characters, and economy are significantly deeper. Inquisition's story is an enormous, 200 hour commitment for completists, so BioWare wants multiplayer to work in short 20-30 minute bursts. Each of the three multiplayer campaigns available at launch randomly generates a large level comprised of smaller sections. you'll fight through five of 10 pre-designed areas in one go, each with distinct variables. Next time, you may see the same stage in a new spot, or an entirely different collection of arenas entirely, all with different enemy encounters, ideally making multiplayer missions replayable indefinitely.

Copenhagen-based indie developer Zero Point Software's ambitious shooter, Interstellar Marines, is set to introduce the first iteration of co-op gameplay in its next big update, aptly codenamed "Project Co-Op" and scheduled for September 18 on Steam Early Access.

The Evil Within's Voice Cast Announced - briefly
(hx) 12:21 AM EDT - Aug,27 2014 - Post a comment
Bethesda Softworks has announced the voice cast for Tango Gameworks' survival-horror game, The Evil Within.
The Evil Within, out October 14th in North America, embodies the meaning of pure survival horror. Highly-crafted environments, horrifying anxiety, and an intricate story are combined to create an immersive world that will bring players to the height of tension. With limited resources at their disposal, players will fight for survival and experience profound fear in this perfect blend of horror and action.

Academy Award nominee Jackie Earle Haley, who is no stranger to horror, having recently played Freddy Krueger in the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street, lends his voice to The Evil Within's main antagonist, Ruvik. Making his video game debut, Anson Mount, best known for his role as Cullen Bohannon in AMC's Hell on Wheels, assumes the role of lead protagonist Sebastian Castellanos. Players assume the role of Sebastian, a veteran police detective, throughout the game in their terrifying struggle for survival.

Rounding out the cast is Jennifer Carpenter, well-known for her role as Debra Morgan in the hit Showtime series Dexter, who plays Juli Kidman, Sebastian’s Junior Detective partner. As part of recently announced Season Pass plans, players will be able to assume the role of Juli Kidman in post-launch content to experience The Evil Within from an entirely new perspective.

"One of the most crucial elements to any successful survival horror game is the setting and sound, which includes the depth and authenticity of the voice acting," said Mikami. "We brought together a great cast of experienced actors to help ensure that players really believe our characters’ emotions and the tension they feel in every scene."

In The Evil Within, Detective Sebastian Castellanos and his partners are called in to investigate a gruesome mass murder. After seeing the slaughter of fellow officers, Sebastian is ambushed and knocked unconscious. When he awakens, he finds himself in a deranged world where hideous creatures wander among the dead. Facing unimaginable terror, and fighting for survival, Sebastian embarks on a frightening journey to unravel what’s behind this evil force.

Slated for release on October 14th in North America (October 16th in Australia and October 17th across Europe), The Evil Within is in development for the Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 computer entertainment system, PlayStation 3, and PC.
