Blizzard adds Reaper to the ranks of collectible statues

By: Ma Yong Kang | More News: Deals | Posted: 5 days, 16 hours ago

Blizzard have announced another addition to its premium statue collectibles. It's none other than Reaper himself from Overwatch while in his ultimate - Death Blossom. It's dangerously beautiful. You might not want to stare at it too much.

 

 

The statue will be sold like the previous Tracer one for $150 and limited to 2 per customer. It will measure 12"/30.48cm (floor to head) and will be hand painted. Each one of them might have some variations.

 

Reaper will be sculpted out of polystone by staff Senior Sculptor Brian Fay who also sculpted the first one, Tracer. People might want to order it now as it ships in two waves, the first being Q1 2017 and second being Q3 2017.

 

It might be a while before they can take new orders if you miss it as Blizzard haven't come back with their second batch of Tracer statues.

The Division's newest patch pull players back into it

By: Ma Yong Kang | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 days, 17 hours ago

As you may know, Ubisoft promising open-world third person shooter The Division have suffered a tremendous loss of its player base after the launch due to numerous mission exploits and glitches. However, the latest patch 1.4 and Survival DLC seem to have worked their magic and players start coming back in masses.

Anne Blondel, Ubisoft VP of Live Operations, states in an exchange with PCGamesN :"Since the release of patch 1.4, we went back to the daily active users we had at launch, because people were [so impressed]".

 

She explained what was going on behind the scenes when they first saw the massive number of folks leaving the game: "Some players left the game earlier than what we thought, then we had to make that tough call - do we keep providing them with extra content or do we stop everything for a while, settle down, fix everything and then once the game is where it should be, then we start providing more content."

 

She continued: "And this is what we did [and] the community was super happy about it, even though they were disappointed at first that we were to push back the next DLC releases."

GeForce 376.09 driver is optimized for Watch Dogs 2

By: Sean Ridgeley | More News: Video Cards | Posted: 5 days, 18 hours ago

NVIDIA has released its new 376.09 drivers, specifically aimed at optimizing three major titles.

 

geforce-376-09-driver-optimized-watch-dogs-2_1

 

The first is Watch Dogs 2, due out tomorrow. Word is both the game design and PC optimization are much improved over the first game, so you should probably give it a shot if you wrote it off after the last go round.

 

The other two are Capcom's comedy zombie smasher Dead Rising 4 (due out December 6), and Steep, Ubisoft's winter sports game (due out December 2). You hardly see any winter sports games, especially on PC, so that's definitely one to look forward to, especially with NVIDIA's optimizations.

Save 40% off most ThinkPad in Lenovo's Cyber Monday sale

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: 5 days, 18 hours ago

It's Cyber Monday and ThinkPad fans now have an excuse to upgrade/update. From the pricey X1 Yoga or Carbon to the more more affordable ThinkPad 13, all Lenovo ThinkPads are on sale today with a giant 40% off coupon: SAV40THINKPAD. The deal is for Monday only, so you'll have to make a decision quickly.

 

score-40-thinkpad-lenovo-cyber-monday-sale_29

 

The deals are of course similar to what Lenovo was offering on Black Friday just a few days ago. If you missed the Black Friday deals because you were out shopping offline (pff), this is your second chance to pick up some decent savings. We've rounded up all the noteworthy ThinkPads below and they are listed from high to low price.

 

Most configurations are customizable to your liking (e.g. add more RAM, pick higher clock CPU etc.), although some are linked straight to the higher spec'ed models for convenience (the ThinkPad X260 is one such example). If you've been on the fence, this holiday promotion may sway you into picking a unit up - and if you've already made up your mind and have been waiting - the clock is now ticking.

 

Update: coupon code SAV40THINKPAD is now expired as Cyber Monday is now over. But Lenovo has kept the deals going with Cyber Week 35% off code. Sure it's 5% less but it still beats paying full price...

 

For all deals, use eCoupon code: SAV35THINKPAD

 

Half-Life fans campaign for HL3 with Steam awards

By: Ma Yong Kang | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 days, 18 hours ago

The recent Steam award nomination system have a category where you can suggest a name to it. This have resulted in some pretty hilarious events such as the savage No Man's Sky brainstorm and naming session. People have soon figured out another use of the system: letting Valve know that we are still damn waiting for a Half-Life 3 game.

The image has been posted by GruffBarbarian in the Half-Life subreddit. It has since gotten 6439 upvotes and the numbers are rising by the minutes. Half-Life fans can join the movement by doing the same, typing "GAME THAT DESERVES A SEQUEL" in all caps in Half-Life 2: Episode 2 nomination section.

 

But, Valve already knew that. In a interview with The Washington Post back in 2014 where they talked about Valve business model, Valve Co-founder Gabe Newell said: "The company grew out of trying to think about how to design for the specific business challenges we would have. It's sort of a good news/bad news situation that our industry is changing so quickly."

No Man's Sky dev reveals reason behind two month silence

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 days, 19 hours ago

One of the major reasons gamers have such a problem with No Man's Sky lies with its developer going silent for a full two months after release. Once players realized how little content the game actually offered, they lambasted the 16-man team at Hello Games, leading to a tumultuous time of distrust.

 

mans-sky-dev-reveals-reason-behind-two-month-silence_3

 

Now for the first time since the game launched, Hello Games lead Sean Murray--a man who's now seen by gamers with the likes of Peter Molyneaux--reveals exactly why the studio kept so incredibly quiet. Essentially Sean Murray says he didn't want to talk about the game's new Founder's Update until it was 100% completed, but I think he didn't want to over-promise any more content and didn't necessarily want to interact with the fanbase, which has been pretty fractured.

 

"We hope you enjoy this first proper update. We didn't want to talk about anything in it until it was 100% certain," Murray wrote in a recent Tweet. "We're getting better as quickly as we can for the players who invested in us. Thank you for sticking with us."

By: Emma Tucker | More News: Gaming | Posted: 5 days, 20 hours ago

The Division Survival DLC 1.5 update is now available for Microsoft Xbox One and Windows PC owners. Unfortunately for PlayStation 4 owners, the new patch release has not yet launched.

 

ps4-users-wait-tom-clancys-dlc-1-5-update_01

 

According to online gaming sources, PS4 owners may only have to wait a week for their chance to install the new update. Though no official confirmation about this has yet been confirmed by the developer or Sony, it would be highly unlikely that PS4 users will have to wait a long time.

 

For now, we know that Xbox One and PC have the update, as to whether or not the PS4 update will take longer than a week, we unfortunately can't say, all we can do is hope it releases ASAP!

By: Lana Jelic | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: 5 days, 21 hours ago

Apple's enormous campus in Cupertino is scheduled to open in 2017, and the latest drone footage from YouTube user Sexton Videography shows the progress of the spaceship-like structure.

 

 

The Apple Campus 2 looks nearly finished, and the video shows that most of the walls and solar panels are now in place.

 

The cost of the Apple Campus 2 is estimated to around $5 billion plus the cost of the land which was around $160 million. When finished, the campus will accommodate around 13,000 employees which is not nearly enough to house all of Apple's Bay-Area employees.
