Euro Truck Simulator 2 with all DLC on sale for $15

By: TweakTown Dealzon | More News: Deals | Posted: Aug 31, 2016 9:29 pm

All the fun of driving a truck around Europe without any of the language barriers, pushy bosses, or damaged cargo that wasn't your fault. If a relaxing drive game is up your alley, Euro Truck Simulator 2 has never been a better value.

Today, Bundle Stars reduced the price on their Euro Truck Simulator 2 Deluxe bundle to only $14.99. Right now Steam is charging $22.99 for Euro Truck Simulator 2 alone ($8 more), but that's not really where the value comes in. If you bought all the games and DLCs in this deluxe bundle separately for full price, you'd pay $120! Thus the $15 price tag looks much better than at first glance.

 

 

In total, the Euro Truck Simulator 2 Deluxe Bundle includes five games and 22 DLC packs. As mentioned, the $15 price is $105 cheaper than buying each separately on Steam right now (88% less). Besides Euro Truck Simulator 2, you also get the original Euro Truck Simulator, Candia Truck Driving Simulator, Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Scandinavia, and Euro Truck Simulator 2 - Going East! DLC. Most of the other DLCs are paint jobs and accessories that are nice to have, but not as necessary.

 

As you can see above, Bundle Stars also has a 70% discount on the Euro Truck Simulator 2 game all by itself. In this case, the price has been reduced from $22.99 to $6.89. It represents one of the lowest prices to date only beat once during the Steam Summer sale for $5. As with most items, buying the bulk Deluxe set will cost a bit more, but you'll get a higher 88% discount.

NVIDIA's Fallout 4 mod adds advanced lighting, shadows

By: Sean Ridgeley | More News: Gaming | Posted: Aug 31, 2016 7:40 pm

NVIDIA's Lightspeed Studios is about to release an official mod for Fallout 4.

 

 

Named 'Vault 1080', it adds advanced lighting and shadows to the game, as well as an hour of added gameplay that takes place in -- you guessed it - a vault. The visual effects, as you can see in the video above, add a genuinely appreciable moodiness to scenes, but as always, it's a matter of preference.

Nintendo NX dimensions and design possibly leaked

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Aug 31, 2016 4:08 pm

An anonymous developer potentially leaks new Nintendo NX details, this time allegedly revealing the dimensions and overall look of the handheld's devkit.

On the heels of the NX share button reports, an anonymous developer has told Let's Play Video Games some fresh info regarding the NX's devkits, more specifically the overall size of the handheld and its detachable controllers as well as a rough schematic of how it looks. Note that this design isn't exactly surprising as it can be seen in Nintendo's initial patents.

 

"As others already said, it's a hybrid console with detachable controllers that have a split D-Pad, A, B, X, Y, and a camera / share button. However, something I believe none of them have mentioned is the size of the current dev kit.

It's slightly thicker than the Nintendo 3DS XL when folded, so 25 mm, with a width of around 281 mm and a height of 92 mm with the controllers attached. Separated, the controllers have the same depth and height, and they both have a width of 38 mm, making the console itself have a width of 205 mm," the source told LPVG's Laura Dale.

LG's new 38-inch UltraWide rocks 3840x1600 resolution

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: Aug 31, 2016 1:41 am

LG has just teased the world's largest curved UltraWide monitor, with the introduction of its new 38-inch display, the 38UC99.

 

lgs-new-38-inch-ultrawide-rocks-3840x1600-resolution_04

 

The new 38-inch curved UltraWide rocks a huge resolution of 3840x1600, so not quite 4K, but more than the 3440x1440 native resolution of popular 34-inch UltraWide monitors. LG's new 38UC99 display rocks an IPS panel with a wide color gamut covering 99% of the sRGB color space.

 

This means professionals and enthusiasts alike will enjoy the crystal clear images of the IPS panel, while the 3840x1600 resolution provides plenty of desktop real estate. It's also the first UltraWide monitor to feature USB Type-C connectivity, allowing you to connect your smartphone - like the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7, or a laptop into the display to charge or sync data.

Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition launches

By: Sean Ridgeley | More News: Gaming | Posted: Aug 30, 2016 9:33 pm

Maybe you like to play games all at once instead of in chunks or maybe you're just a cheapskate. Either way, The Witcher 3: Game of the Year Edition launches today with all DLC in tow, including two huge expansions, all-in-one neat package and for about $50.

 

 

As I've mentioned before, even just the vanilla game contains an enormous amount of content even by RPG standards, so if you decide to pick it up, you're getting a ridiculous amount of playtime (roughly 150 hours) for your dough, and with no real filler either. Oh, and many don't hesitate to say it's the best game of all time, period, so that helps.

Apple ordered to pay €13bn in back taxes to Ireland

By: Sean Ridgeley | More News: Business, Financial & Legal | Posted: Aug 30, 2016 8:29 pm

Apple is facing a record €13bn ($14.5bn) fine after a probe by the European Commission, which found the company was routing profits through Ireland to minimize taxes.

According to the probe, Apple's scheme allowed it to pay as little as 0.005% on its European profits, or £50 in taxes for every £1m of profit (a "completely made-up number", according to Chief financial officer Luca Maestri). It's said to have achieved its goal by setting up virtual offices with no employees, offices, or real activity and enacting provisions of Irish law no longer in use.

 

Meanwhile, Apple CEO Tim Cook says his company has done no wrong and he doesn't expect the decision to stick.
