Warner Bros. admits it can't fix Arkham Knight on PC, offers refunds

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: Nov 1, 2015 1:12 pm

Since it was released on PC, Rocksteady's ambitious conclusion to their Batman saga has been pretty much unplayable and broken in fundamental ways. Now it looks like the devs and publishers at Warner Bros. have finally given up and are fully admitting they won't be able to completely fix the game, offering full refunds as a result.




"We are very sorry that many of our customers continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight," Warner Bros. official community admin said in a recent update on Steam. "We worked hard to get the game to live up to the standard you deserve but understand that many of you are still experiencing issues."


"Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of how long you have played the product. You can also return the Season Pass along with the main game (but not separately). For those of you that hold onto the game, we are going to continue to address the issues that we can fix and talk to you about the issues that we cannot fix."

Chinese manufacturer makes an iPhone 6S clone that costs just $37

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Mobile Devices, Tablets & Phones | Posted: Nov 1, 2015 3:24 am

Apple may have launched the new iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus, but they're expensive handsets, so much so that Apple had its best quarter ever - again. But there are clones popping up, where in China you can pick up an iPhone 6S clone for as little as $37.



The basic iPhone 6S sells for $649 in the US, so this iPhone 6S clone is 20x cheaper, and looks virtually identical. It features a 5-inch screen, comes in three colors, and has a reduced resolution on its display. The real iPhone 6S rocks a 1334x750 resolution, while the iPhone 6S clone drops it down to 960x540.


The iPhone 6S clone runs Android, has a weaker Spreadtrum SC773 processor, 4GB of storage and 512MB of RAM. Comparing this to the A9 processor, 16GB of storage (with 64GB and 128GB models), and a reported 2GB of RAM. However, the iPhone 6S clone rocks two SIM card slots, compared to the one SIM card slot found in the official iPhone 6S.

On the heels of similar agreements struck with movie studios such as Disney and Warner Brothers, IMAX has inked a deal with 20th Century Fox, which will see some of the biggest films of 2016 get a little bigger.




According to Deadline Hollywood, the agreement will see eagerly awaited theatrical releases such as 'Deadpool', 'Independence Day: Resurgence', 'Maze Runner: The Death Cure' and the as-yet untitled third 'Wolverine' stand-alone picture hit IMAX screens worldwide.

Deakin helps your body become the controller with its Motion Lab

By: Chris Smith | More News: Virtual & Augmented Reality | Posted: Oct 31, 2015 2:01 am

PAX Australia 2015 - Aiming to bring virtual reality and motion capture up to another level, Deakin's Motion Capture lab serves as a dual purpose facility to offer education and research towards betterment of games and movies alike.




With its Friday showing at PAX Australia involving a short virtual reality space demo in which you can control limb movement and rotations with your body as the controller, Saturday was an even more impressive experience - hosting a live model testing out a full body motion capture suit.


Deakin Motion Labs director, Professor Kim Vincs, discussed the advancements in the VR and motion capture industries, pinpointing how her facilities help provide a hands-on experience for students. Unfortunately, due to hustle and bustle at PAX, with the added stress of them being next to the extremely loud Twitch booth, further discussion on the future of development was near impossible. Not wanting to disappoint, expect a full feature article from TweakTown as we aim to attend the motion lab early in November.

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10576 adds media casting

By: Sean Ridgeley | More News: Operating Systems | Posted: Oct 30, 2015 9:23 pm

Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 10576 is out in the wild, and with it comes a fairly exciting feature, if you have the device(s) to support it: media casting.




Via Edge, you can send videos, pictures, and audio to any Miracast and DLNA enabled device in your home. This includes support for YouTube videos, Facebook photos, and Pandora songs, but in theory you may be able to cast just about anything. Sadly, protected content is not supported, so you can't cast Netflix, Hulu, etc. -- one of the key reasons to cast in the first place.


Other changes in this build include Xbox beta app voiceover recording and search and purchase functionality, a fix for the Xbox beta RAM usage issue which popped up under specific circumstances, and Hyper-V performance improvements.
