Konami developers didn't take holidays to get MGS V on PC earlier

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 41 mins ago

It looks like the only reason we're about to enjoy Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on the PC in two days is because the staff of Konami didn't take their summer vacation.

Konami developers skipped their holidays to meet the deadline, which is in just a couple of days time. Originally, Konami had promised Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain two weeks after its launch on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but now we enjoy it as a simultaneous release on the consoles, and PC.

 

Thanks, Konami!

Mortal Kombat X cancelled for the Xbox 360 and PS3

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 19 mins ago

If you have a previous generation console, you won't be playing Mortal Kombat X. Warner Bros. has cancelled development of the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Mortal Kombat X, saying that both versions would not meet the quality "expected of a Mortal Kombat game".

There's no more details on what exactly transpired, but I would dare say that the previous generation consoles couldn't hit 60FPS. The Xbox One and PS4 versions are pumping out the fatalities and blood spattering at 60FPS, but the previous-gen consoles are not up to scratch. Good on Warner Bros. to not just throw it out at 30FPS and expect everyone to just put up with it.

Grand Theft Auto V 'ENBSeries' 4K screenshots will blow you away

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 hours, 41 mins ago

The ENBSeries from modder 'Ryuken' has never looked better, with Ryuken sharing some beautiful 4K screenshots from the mod for Grand Theft Auto V. While they will look good on your monitor through these pictures, they'll look even better when run in native 4K from within the game itself.

There are plenty more screenshots to take a look at, below. I can't wait until games look this good by default, but GTA V on the PC at 4K looks pretty damn good without the mods. With the mods on top, it really is something special.

Minecraft creator has 'never felt more isolated' with his $2.5 billion

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: 6 hours, 13 mins ago

What would you do with $2.5 billion? I know I would do countless things like buy all of my friends and family houses and put enough money in their accounts that they would never have to worry about money ever again. But what about the man who sold Mojang? The company behind Minecraft. Well, he's super lonely according to his recent tweets.

 

minecraft-creator-never-felt-more-isolated-2-5-billion_01

 

Markus "Notch" Persson sold Mojang to Microsoft nearly a year ago now for $2.5 billion, purchased a $70 million mansion, and has been hosting insane parties ever since. Recently, Persson tweeted: "The problem with getting everything is you run out of reasons to keep trying, and human interaction becomes impossible due to imbalance. Hanging out in ibiza with a bunch of friends and partying with famous people, able to do whatever I want, and I've never felt more isolated".

Julian Assange urged Edward Snowden to pick Russia over Latin America

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Hacking & Security | Posted: 7 hours, 42 mins ago

Julian Assange knows a little something about trying to avoid extradition, and urged former NSA contractor Edward Snowden to select Russia over Latin America. Not only was reaching Latin America a difficult journey, but Snowden's personal safety would have been at risk, Assange noted.

Assange urged Snowden to disregard "negative PR consequences" about choosing Russia, where his physical safety has been provided by the Russian government - a guarantee that would have been significantly less likely if he ended up somewhere in Central or South America.

 

Sarah Harrison, one of Assange's most trusted senior staff members, actually met with Snowden while the American was in Hong Kong - at a time when it was unknown where Snowden would end up.

Cyclist has a rather amusing encounter with a Google self-driving car

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Technology in Vehicles | Posted: 8 hours, 13 mins ago

It looks like Google's autonomous vehicle is still learning every time it hits the open road, and a cyclist at a stop sign helped give it another learning opportunity. The cyclist was doing a track stand at the stop sign, and since the car arrived first, the autonomous vehicle had the right of way - but the vehicle just wasn't sure how to proceed with the cyclist present.

 

cyclist-amusing-encounter-google-self-driving-car_01

 

When the cyclist moved forward, the car inched forward and would stop so the cyclist would be able to go. The car noticed the cyclist's presence, but may have been overly cautious - which is something autonomous vehicles are designed for - so this will have to be considered just one more learning experience for Google developers. The cyclist's trackstand, since he wasn't actively moving forward or completely stopped, threw off the autonomous vehicle.

 

As an avid cyclist, hearing Oxtox's encounter is a rather perplexing one that Google will certainly try to sort out. There are an alarming number of incidents between vehicles and people on bikes, and the forum post noted: "The odd thing is that even tho (sic) it was a bit of a CF, I felt safer dealing with a self-driving car than a human-operated one."

Netflix 4K copy-protection cracked, first leak appears

By: Ben Gourlay | More News: Celebrities & Entertainment | Posted: 8 hours, 40 mins ago

No longer is high definition at the cutting edge of technology, with Blu-ray about to celebrate it's 10th birthday on the cusp of UHD 4K players and discs appearing on the market, and video streaming services such as Netflix investing heavily to acquire content in native 4K. But with the first evidence of the heavily protected content streams being circumvented, studios will be wary to release what is esentially carbon copies of studio masters to the world.

According to TorrentFreak, pirate group iON have released the first episode of 'Breaking Bad' in native 2160p, with the massive 18GB file current accessible via public and private trackers. While your everyday PC or laptop will struggle to playback the file smoothly due to the huge data rates, the first leak of proper 4K content will no doubt have many tech fans eager to see the difference.

Corsair announces new Bulldog that will ship in time for Christmas

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Computer Systems | Posted: 9 hours, 45 mins ago

Corsair announced the production version of its Bulldog DIY 4K gaming PC, with the first prototype shown off during Computex. The barebones system is designed to be a full PC that can be used in the living room, and leaves plenty of options for consumers to build a system as they see fit.

 

 

The Bulldog chassis is a "highly ventilated, stylish, compact console design" able to keep PC components cool, along with a 600-watt SFX power supply, and Hydro Series H5SF small form factor liquid CPU cooler. It's powered by a motherboard capable of supporting the Intel Z170 chipset, with a PCI Express 3.0 16x slot, two memory slots able to support 32GB of DD4 RAM, USB 3.0 and SATA ports, and Gigabit Ethernet, Wi-Fi, and 7.1 channel audio.

 

Consumers must add their own Intel CUP, RAM, GPU, and storage - and can either run Microsoft Windows or SteamOS - to finalize the unit.
