Ubisoft's latest 'The Breach' trailer for Rainbow Six: Siege

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 6 hours, 57 mins ago

Ubisoft says it will have Rainbow Six: Siege ready for launch, without problems, but before the launch on Tuesday the developer has released a new trailer dubbed "The Breach".



The trailer features a famous speech by Henry V in the eponymous 1600 play, before the battle. It kicks off with the line "once more unto the breach, dear friends". Ubisoft changed it up a bit, adding: "Close the wall up with our English dead," becomes "... our brave men dead" with the following line cut: "In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility".

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: 9 hours, 13 mins ago

While most of Hollywood films their movies in digital, Quentin Tarantino has a huge soft spot for shooting his movies in 70mm. It wasn't too long a go now that Tarantino said that he hates Netflix, and still uses VHS.



Tarantino's latest movie 'The Hateful Eight' was shot entirely on 70mm, and has been shown off at glamorous "roadshows". Tarantino was adament that he shot The Hateful Eight on 70mm, with the featurette from Fandango embedded above seeing Tarantino explaining why he loves shooting his movies in 70mm versus digital.

Man gets shot, instead of calling the cops, he grabs an Uber home

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: 11 hours, 8 mins ago

I've caught a number of Uber rides over the last few years, but it's normally for convenience - but this guy had another idea. A man from Grand Rapids, Michigan called an Uber after he was shot, telling the driver to take him home.




Uber driver David Heinicke said he told the 20-year-old gunshot victim that he needed to go to a hospital, but he refused. Heinicke said: "(I) tried to get him to go to the hospital, he would not do it, refused to do it. Looked like a handkerchief or something tied around his leg, trying to stop the bleeding. You could see right into his leg and the big crease down his pants where something had obviously hit him in the leg, and he later told me he had been shot by a .22 pistol".


Even after Heinicke said to his passenger that he needed to go to the hospital, all the Uber passenger wanted to do was go home. Heinicke added: "(He) said if I didn't take him here, he was going to get out and walk the rest of the way, so I brought him here. Then I called the police, and that's why you're here".


The shooting victim ended up making it to the hospital, with the police saying that his injuries were not life-threatening. There's no suspect in custody right now.

New Fallout 4 mod dramatically overhauls in-game landscapes

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 11 hours, 59 mins ago

Even on PC, Fallout 4's graphics aren't quite amazing. The Commonwealth isn't going to put an NVIDIA GTX 980Ti through its paces, and users with higher-end rigs have faced disappointment with the game's underwhelming visuals. With the addition of mods, all of that can be turned around.



A new mod called Vivid Fallout aims to inject a vivacious life to Fallout 4's environs. The game surely is much more colorful than Fallout 3, but a good portion of its flora and fauna remain undefined and rather beleaguered, and that's exactly what this mod overhauls.


As you can see in the side-by-side comparison, the mod's visuals are quite striking and much more pronounced in some instances, but sometimes you can't really notice. If you want to get the total package, this particular mod goes hand-in-hand with the new Realistic Lights add-on. The lighting mod overhauls the way light and shadow are presented in the game to add in a nice sense of realism, but it can be admittedly hard to see in metropolitan areas with skyscrapers.

Apple rumored to remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from the next iPhone

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: 13 hours, 5 mins ago

According to the latest rumors, Apple will remove the 3.5mm headphone jack on the new iPhone and replace it with an all-in-one Lightning connector. The company might also released Lightning-based EarPods that will support the new audio output on future iOS-based devices.




The rumor is coming from Mac Otakara, which is pretty reliable, with the site adding that it has a "reliable source" that claims Apple will use a same-sized Lightning connector that will support Lightning-based and Bluetooth headphones. It'll also have a DAC, or digital-to-audio connector, that will offer backwards compatibility with wired headphones that use the standard 3.5mm headphone jack. To use this, a 3.5mm to Lightning adapter would be required.


If Apple did remove the 3.5mm jack on the new iPHone, it could be 1mm thinner than the already super-thin iPhone 6S which comes in at 7.1mm. The new iPod touch is something we should look at comparing it to, which is 6.1mm thick - but the iPod touch still rocks a 3.5mm headphone jack. We'll find out early next year if the new iPhone drops the 3.5mm headphone jack.

Just Cause 3's map is huge, covering 400 square miles

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 15 hours, 13 mins ago

With the release of Just Cause 3 right around the corner, we're being teased with a new gameplay video dubbed 'The map from end to end' which details the huge 400 square mile map in a helicopter ride.



The video comes courtesy of PlayStation Access, which posted the video to show off the gorgeous open-world environment. The linear distance of Medici in Just Cause 3 is around the same as Panau from Just Cause 2, but Polygon notes that Medici's "mountainous terrain includes greater elevation changes, which makes the journey a little longer. Just Cause 3's map also will be a little more dense, meaning more features packed into roughly the same space".



Just Cause 3 launches on Tuesday, December 1 for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. In case you want some more Just Cause 3 video goodness, check out the 4K 60FPS video above.

Remedy has finished the 'shivering' end scene in Quantum Break

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 day, 8 hours ago

Quantum Break isn't hitting the Xbox One until April 2016, but Remedy Entertainment has teased that it has finished the 'end scene' on the Xbox One exclusive.



Remedy's Drama Director Stobe Harju teased on Twitter: "Locked the end scene of @quantumbreak @remedygames. Not just that scene making me shiver, but late hours and the fact that i love this sh*t". Harju was asked "did you mean filming/shooting for QuantumBreak has been finished up? No more recordings then?"



He replied, tweeting "What I mean was that we basically can see how the ending is going to roll out among other scenes and that's important. That's all". Now remember, Quantum Break includes an interactive TV show, which is connected to the game itself. Digital episodes of the show will blend in and interact with the game itself, with Remedy explaining earlier this year at Gamescom: "The game is about the heroes and the show is about the villains".
