That means Xbox gamers can play with the AE4 directed energy assault rifle and AE4 Widowmaker custom weapon variant. Obviously, Call of Duty is a gun-driven game, but the video released today to show off the weapons may be the closest to gun porn I've ever seen come out of an official COD trailer. The full Havoc DLC hits next month and includes Exo Zombies.

  • Dragon Age: Inquisition's patch has had some unexpected consequences - Especially on PC, Dragon Age: Inquisition players are reporting problems after applying the patch. One of the most prominent complaints is changes to customised characters following the update. Kotaku reports scars may be erased. IGN reports characters may be aged significantly. There are loads of Reddit threads on the subject of poor performance of the PC version in addition to the newly-introduced bugs.
  • Flight Simulator X Lands on Steam Next Week - Microsoft Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition delivers an authentically accurate aerial experience for simulation enthusiasts and those with a passion for all things flight. Pilots can climb into the cockpits of over twenty aircraft, from commercial and fighter jets to single-engine private planes and helicopters. More than 80 missions will test players in a variety of ways, including search and rescue challenges, test pilot scenarios, races and more.

  • These See-Through PS4 HDD Covers Might Just Be the Coolest Way to Customize your PlayStation - Strolling around Akihabara, I found something that is very possibly the coolest way to customize a PS4. The Japanese manufacturer Cyber Gadget released a set of HDD covers in four colors, but what sets them apart is that they're see-through, and when they're assembled on your PS4 they let you see the hard disk bay and the surrounding protective shield surrounding it, giving the console a definitely fetching mechanical look. The accessories, called Scratch Guard Cover, are actually designed to make scratches and dirt less visible than on the original glossy cover.
  • Xbox One Comes With Three Free Games + Free Shipping - Microsoft is offering three free games with the Xbox One today. The catch? One of the games is Assassin's Creed Unity and the deal is today only. Still, that puts the price (not counting the two Assassin's Creed games) at less than $290 + free shippin

Alien: Isolation Patch Adds Two Difficulty Modes - patch
(hx) 02:31 PM EST - Dec,10 2014 - Post a comment
SEGA and The Creative Assembly have released a new update for Alien: Isolation that adds two more difficulty modes: Nightmare and Novice. As you may have expected, this new Nightmare mode is for all die-hard hardcore gamers that found the game too easy :D As always, this free update will be auto-downloaded from Steam next time you launch its client.
In Nightmare, players explore the world of Sevastopol with a motion tracker featuring a damaged display and undependable information. Resources will be even more limited, the map systems have gone offline and fellow survivors and synthetics are even more deadly and aggressive.

In Novice, you'll be given more resources and ammunition, with synthetics and fellow survivors being less troublesome. Our Alien will also be more forgiving, more easily distracted and less aggressive in his hunting style.

Rise of the Tomb Raider will be Published by Microsoft - briefly
(hx) 06:47 PM EST - Dec,09 2014 - Post a comment
A Microsoft executive has confirmed that the corporation will act as publisher for Square Enix's Rise of the Tomb Raider for Xbox One. Microsoft's agreement to act as publisher likely means it will handle marketing and distribution costs; which possibly could be a responsibility it has taken to help broker the exclusivity deal in the first place. The deal also suggests how deep the agreement between the two companies has become, as well as how much of the publishing costs Microsoft is willing to shoulder in order to seal an exclusivity agreement. That also, in turn, suggests how far into the future the exclusivity period could last. Currently, both Microsoft and Square Enix are only saying The Rise of the Tomb Raider is a "holiday 2015" exclusive.

Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch Today - briefly
(hx) 05:21 PM EST - Dec,09 2014 - Post a comment / read (4)
The BioWare Blog has more details on the Dragon Age: Inquisition patch expected today as well as word on plans for additional post-release support for the RPG sequel.
Priority 1 - Patches

We're committed to providing long-term gameplay and stability improvements. We have already released a Day 1 Patch, and in December we will release our second patch. We expect the patch to roll out on PC, PS3, PS4, and Xbox 360 on December 9, 2014. We are working hard to get Patch 2 out on Xbox One as soon as possible.

Patch 2 is focused on stability, but does include numerous improvements and fixes across the board. Full patch notes will be available soon, but generally Patch 2 includes fixes to:

  • Stability - Various crashes, freezes, audio/voice glitches, and many stability improvements.
  • Gameplay - Conversations, quests, plot states, combat, UI, camera, controls, follower/enemy AI and path finding, exploits, radar, and search.
  • Multiplayer - In addition to some of the gameplay improvements listed above, multiplayer fixes also cover areas such as animations, game mode bugs, stat reporting, and stability/crash fixes.
  • PC - Numerous control & UI fixes, fixes to some hitching, improved Mantle performance, graphical glitches.

Beyond Patch 2 we'll continue to release patches that focus on gameplay improvements. We've already lined up a number of improvements and fixes we'd like to include in Patch 3, and of course we'll continue listening to you to make sure we're addressing your concerns.

I wanted to call out a few specific topics as well, as they relate to patches:

  • Keyboard & Mouse controls - Patch 2 includes the first range of fixes towards addressing the feedback we've received on the PC controls; it cleans things up so you'll see fewer problems with the current layout. This gives us a more stable base upon which to work. After Patch 2 goes out, our next priority is to improve the PC mouse/keyboard controls further. We're investigating how to expand on PC usability and functionality to address specific requests from the community. Keep an eye on this thread by Mark Darrah for more updates.
  • Some people have reported problems with party banter firing. To find out more about how the Banter System works please go here. We have also identified that in some edge scenarios, banter isn't firing as often as we'd like, so we'll be increasing the percentage chance of it happening. This increase will come after Patch 2.

Priority 2 - Features and content

As massive as Dragon Age: Inquisition already is, there were some things the team wanted to get in at launch, but we just ran out of time. We'll be creating these new features and content and adding them into your game over time because we love our DAI players. Multiplayer will also be receiving regular content updates.

In closing, I'd like to thank you for your patience. We appreciate your feedback, so keep it coming! We're going to keep working on these patches and content while you're off adventuring in the world of Dragon Age. In the meantime, please visit EA's help website for the latest workarounds and updates.

SimCity 2000: Special Edition free - freegame
(hx) 05:18 PM EST - Dec,09 2014 - Post a comment / read (1)
SimCity 2000: Special Edition has been listed as the latest game in Origin's 'On the House' program. For those that don't remember this one, SimCity 2000 took the franchise into the 21st century with new building types, new power plant varieties, and multiple cities. No timetable has been given for how long this deal will last, but EA notes that the deal can go away at any time. So grab it while you can from Origin.
