Battlefield 4 - Final Stand DLC Reveal Trailer - movie
(hx) 03:38 PM EDT - Sep,09 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
Today, EA and DICE revealed the last DLC pack to be released for the action shooter. Titled 'Final Stand', the DLC takes players all the way to wintry Russia in four all new maps. The maps are 'Operation Whiteout', which takes place in what looks like an old Russian observatory and listening post. 'Hammerhead', a more forested map along a frigid river with an underground base. 'Giants of Karelia' along an old vehicle depot and 'Hangar 21' which takes you deep inside a Russian airbase.

The content will be coming to all versions of the game. However, players who have the PC Premium account can get in on the test phase and try out the new maps before everyone else. Starting today, EA is releasing one new map per day for PC Premium players to frag around in. Be warned, however, the number of slots are limited; so be sure to sign up early and often.
Apple announces the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus - tech
(hx) 03:24 PM EDT - Sep,09 2014 - Post a comment / read (4)
Apple today revealed new iPhones during a special event held in California. The new devices have curved designs, a protruding camera module, and Apple's signature metal design. The phones have a glass front, aluminum frame, and a steel Apple logo on the back. The iPhones have Retina HD displays that measure 4.7 inches and 5.5 inches, respectively. The smaller screen has 1334 x 750 pixels and the larger one has 1920 x 1080 pixels. The iPhone 6 measures 6.9mm thick, the 6 Plus measures 7.1mm - both are thinner than the iPhone 5s. The iPhone 6 Plus offers a wide array of landscape-optimized apps, such as a two-panel view in messaging, along with a wider keyboard. A double-press of the home button will move the UI elements normally positioned at the top of the screen down so they are easier to reach with one hand. Apple said content designed for the different iOS screen sizes and resolutions will now scale up to match whichever device is being used. The phones feature a 64-bit A8 processor that uses a 20nm processes that Apple says is 20% faster than the iPhone 5s' A7 chip, and provides a 50% bump in graphics performance. The iPhones also use Apple's M8 Motion coprocessor to help manage sensors for fitness apps. The sensors are able to differentiate between cycling and walking, and can calculate speed and elevation changes. The new handsets feature 20-band support for LTE networks, and include carrier aggregation, VoLTE capabilities, and Wi-Fi calling (from select carriers). The iPhone 6 and 6 Plus both feature an 8-megapixel camera with an aperture of f/2.2 and what Apple calls True Tone flash. The cameras can shoot panoramas up to 43-megapixels. Thanks to a new image signal processor, the cameras are faster to focus, and faster to detect faces/blinking. The 6 uses digital processing for image stabilization, but the 6 Plus uses optical image stabilization. The cameras can shoot 1080p HD vide at 30/60fps, as well as slow-motion video at 120/240fps. The user-facing camera, which Apple calls FaceTime, has an all-new sensor that is faster at detecting faces, allows in 81% more light than the 5s, and can capture selfies in rapid-fire bursts. The iPhone 6 will cost $199, $299, or $399 for the 16-GB, 64-GB, and 129-GB models, respectively. The iPhone 6 Plus costs $299, $399, and $499 for the 16-GB, 64-GB, and 128-GB models, respectively. Those prices are available only with two-year contracts. Both iPhones go on sale September 19, with preorders beginning September 12. The iPhone 5s will remain available for $99, the 8GB iPhone 5c will be available for free.

Update: The new iPhone 6, in 3D!
Resident Evil 5 and Dead Rising 2 Coming to Steam - briefly
(hx) 02:51 PM EDT - Sep,09 2014 - Post a comment
Capcom has announced that it will be replacing Games for Windows Live with Steamworks in Resident Evil 5, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off The Record early next year.
If you're a fan of smashing zombies (and/or zombie-like Majini) on your PC, then we've got some good news for ya - RE5, Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record are all coming to Steamworks early next year. With the global popularity of the Steamworks platform, we’ve seen high demand from fans to bring these highly requested titles to this platform. Moving to Steamworks will allow more fans across the world to enjoy these games.

Current owners of these PC titles will be transitioned over to the Steamworks versions early next year. Once we have specific dates ironed out, we'll have more information about all three titles and their respective launch days so stay tuned.
Destiny - Update 1.0.1 Patch Notes - patch
(hx) 02:49 PM EDT - Sep,09 2014 - Post a comment
Bungie has released a list of changes that will be found in the day one patch for Destiny.
We used to build games that were pressed on discs, shipped to retailers, bought by consumers and then, in the months and years that followed, we'd support them the best we could. We updated playlists, made tuning changes, and developed new multiplayer maps.

With Destiny, we couldn't create a world that players want to live in by leveraging our old habits. We want to improve, grow and evolve Destiny in the coming weeks, months and - hopefully - years.

The hours you poured into the beta were instructive, the feedback you provided was heard, and the time you've spent with us so far is humbling.

Patch 1.0.1 won't be the last changes to Destiny. Our goal is to constantly improve the Live game. The game we hope is competing for your free time.

Work is already underway on upcoming patches. Some will contain new content, some will contain the next round of improvements, and some will undoubtedly react to issues that you - the playerbase - will uncover in the coming weeks.

GTAV PC Has Been Under Development Since 2012 - briefly
(hx) 07:18 AM EDT - Sep,09 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
And here comes a major leak. Today, almost all logs for GTA V's internal builds have been leaked. According to the logs, the PC version of GTA V has been under development since 2012. This obviously does not surprise us, as we've all known that this game was coming to the PC (sooner or later). Still, this leak somehow explains why the game appeared on AMD's drivers out of nowhere. What's also interesting is the fact that PS4 and Xbox One are never mentioned in these logs. This could mean that the PC platform is the lead platform for the current-gen version of GTA V that is coming later this Fall.
Way of the Samurai 4 Coming To PC via Steam - briefly
(hx) 07:04 AM EDT - Sep,09 2014 - Post a comment
Originally released exclusively to the PlayStation 3, Way of the Samurai 4 has been confirmed to be coming to PC via Steam by U.K. publisher Ghostlight. The publisher alongside both Acquire and Spike Chunsoft are working on the PC port of the game. A release date for the game hasn't been revealed yet but Ghostlight say they are "hard at work on the PC conversion" and more information on the port will be announced in the near future.
Developed and published in Japan by Acquire and Spike Chunsoft, Way of the Samurai 4 is part of the million+ selling Way of the Samurai series. The series has seen sequels (and even a prequel) released on numerous consoles, including PSP, PS3 and Xbox 360, but to date none of the games have ever been released on PC. Considering that Way of the Samurai 4 has so far been exclusive to PS3, we're obviously delighted to be working alongside both Acquire and Spike Chunsoft in creating the first ever transition to PC of such a popular series!

This isn’t the first time we've stepped out of the RPG world but I think it's fair to say that this title represents a bit of a departure for us here at Ghostlight. While we've always worked hard to bring Japanese games over to our shores, we've mainly focused on JRPGs so this will be the first big Japanese action game we've ever worked on! :
