Hacking is a mystery to me. All I know is that no matter how tight an organisation thinks their security is, someone somewhere can roll their face across their keyboard (skillfully) and either gain access to confidential information, or cause havoc with the likes of a DDos attack. Riot Games, the almighty creators of League of Legends, are not new to these hazards, having been the victim of several attacks over the past few years. They’re looking to pay people to help them stomp out any security bugs.
DreamHack Winter 2014 kicks off on the 27th of November which is this Thursday.Three top Counter-Strike: Global Offensive players have received in-game bans through VAC. This has raised questions on not only their previous performances (tournaments and such that they have won), but also the horrible thought that other players of the same calibre could be using this specific cheat too.
Well here’s something we haven’t done forever! I hope you missed it, because we’re giving Heroes of the Storm loving once more with some hero spotlights. A long time ago, we looked at Nova, the sneaky ghost who excels at sniping off weaker targets. This week we will check out Anub'arak, the traitor king from the Warcraft universe.
If I asked you to share the first block sandbox game that comes to mind, I’d willingly bet my first unborn child that you’d say Minecraft. Don’t worry, it’s was the first thing that popped into my head too, at least until recently when I learnt about another platform called Roblox. For lack of a better comparison, it reminds me of Mojang’s open world builder. It’s different though, allowing users to not only create their own worlds, but also entire game experiences for other to play – all in the comfort of a browser window.
Dear Diary. Today I couldn’t think up a witty or interesting introduction for the weekly wrap. I think I’m losing my touch… I think I’m going insane! What does this all mean? Am I destined to be nothing, a mere shadow of the void? How will people know what the highlights of the week were without something to lead them into it? They will never know!
The upcoming Game of Thrones episodic game by Telltale recently got some new details, shedding light on all those damn teaser tweets we saw over the past few months. The game has just received a new teaser trailer, as well as more information on House Forrester, the family that the story will focus on.
This year’s season for League of Legends may be over, but that hasn’t stopped Riot Games from rolling out one of their biggest updates ever in preparation for 2015. Patch 4.20 brings lots of changes to Summoners Rift, with the big theme being ‘Strategic Diversity’. What does that mean exactly?
I’m convinced Zoe has evil powers. Earlier this week, we were teasing her extensively. The skies then darkened and a violent storm ensued, accompanied by some glorious hail. Once she had forgiven us, the clouds vanished and the sun appeared once more. What the heck? Coincidence? I THINK NOT!
A good mouse could mean the difference between life and death. Who was that snotty email for – your boss or the company that gave you poor service? Chances are, a bad mouse will result in a missclick, sending it off to your boss, which will inevitably lead to the loss of your job. This is all hypothetical of course, but it could happen! With this in mind, I took the Logitech M280 for a spin. Are its clicks accurate enough to keep you your job?
Just a few months ago, things weren’t looking so hot for World of Warcraft. Granted, there were still millions of active players, but it was on a slow and steady decline. Blizzard were hoping that Warlords of Draenor would revitalise things somewhat, and it has.
I’ve always been fascinated with speedruns in gaming. Whether glitches are allowed or not to make the record eligible, it still takes some extraordinary skill, timing, and lots and lots of practice to clock a game as quickly as possible. Doom 2 may be 20 years old, but its just had its speedrun record beaten.
The Tomb Raider franchise saw a very successful reboot last year in an origin story where Camilla Luddington breathed new life into the heroine. What flew in under the radar several years before though (in 2010), was Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light – a downloadable gem of an arcade game that was packed with action, puzzles, and some fantastic co-op. The sequel, Temple of Osiris, will be available for download in less than a month.
World of Warcraft has been around for a decade or so now (believe it or not), and the game shows no real sign of slowing down. Blizzard have kept it fresh with regular updates and frequent expansions, meaning there are still millions of regular subscribers. Many of these gamers experienced all manner of issues with the launch of the latest expansion, Warlords of Draenor. As if busy servers weren't enough of a headache, a recent DDOS attack made matters worse. It all seems to have been fixed for the most part, and Blizzard have since said sorry. They are also offering some free game-time as compensation.
I love the smell of fresh Dota 2 news in the morning! A few days ago, Valve gave us a hint of things to come. They’ve now shared details, putting fans (and myself) out of their misery. The update will include a new hero, Oracle, a new arcana set for Phantom Assassin, as well as some other awesome extras!
No matter which LittleBigPlanet you play, you can be sure that there are some truly astounding community made levels to explore. Other games often get remade in the platformer thanks to its flexible level creator, but they are usually just a once-off affair or simply a nod to the franchise in question. This is not the case with Final Fantasy VII . One user has remade the entire game.
