EA Attempts to Distance Themselves from 'Loot Boxes' by Calling them 'Surprise Mechanics'

If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, it must be a surprise mechanic.

EA and loot boxes, loot boxes and EA. In some people's minds, there is no better pairing save for "gamers" and "rising up." For the past several years now, the studio has been repeatedly under fire for how they included loot boxes in many of their titles. They have included loot box mechanics in games like Madden with their Madden Ultimate Team card packs, FIFA with the similar Ultimate Team mode, Battlefield 1, and perhaps most notably, Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    BioShock is Coming to iOS

    2K announced today that BioShock is making its way to iOS devices. Yes, it's the original game that's been "optimized (for) touch controls" and includes Made for iPhone (MFi) game controller support. The game will be released later this Summer and will be "premium priced."



    Sadly, this seems to be what 2K was teasing the other day. Their "bite the apple" teaser image sure does make a lot more sense now, doesn't it? Oh well....

    This is Supposedly the Map of Paris for Assassin's Creed Unity

    Courtesy of Reddit comes the first (potential) look at the map of Paris for Assassin's Creed Unity.


    Someone then compared that to the actual map for Paris from around the same time.


    It is also important to note that the map in Assassin's Creed Unity does not show the underground Catacombs of Paris but they are said to be a part of the game. It's also important to note that about one out of every four buildings can be entered in some fashion....

    The AI Pathing in The Last of Us Remastered Isn't Always the Best

    I was playing The Last of Us Remastered last night and came across an enemy AI that really wanted to secure this particular corner of the room.


    Needless to say, this type of glitch isn't that common, but the AI pathing does leave a lot to be desired at times, both for enemies and friendly AI....

  • Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Changelog for August 1, 2014 Update

    Counter-Strike: Global Offensive Changelog for August 1, 2014 Update

    An update was rolled out tonight for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. This update brings the game up to version 1.34.3.1.

    Changelog for CS:GO update for August 1, 2014

    UI
    - Added cl_crosshairgap_useweaponvalue convar (0 or 1) that defines whether the crosshair gap changes with the equipped weapon (defaults to off, works with style 4 and 5)

    GAMEPLAY
    - Flagged smoke grenade particles to face player camera position instead of camera direction.
    - Non-local player positions are now networked with full precision. This prevents small discrepancies in player bounding volume motion between clients and servers under certain circumstances.

    MISC
    - Fixed a rare case when a previously existing inventory item was displayed after unlocking a weapon case or fulfilling a trade up contract.

  • Toxikk is 'Taking the Arena FPS Back to its Roots'

    Toxikk is 'Taking the Arena FPS Back to its Roots'

    A new FPS has just popped up on the radar and it should be popping up on your radars as well. Toxikk is a new arena based FPS that developer Reakktor Studios promises will take "the arena FPS back to its roots."

    That means the game will have things such as double jumping, no reloading, no regenerating health, no leveling up, no perks, no classes, no customization. All it has is just a lot of fast-paced shooting and violence and that's just fine.



    Some other features of the game include two different map types: Classic and Massive. Classic will be small to medium-sized maps for up to eight players. Massive maps are la...

    Thanks chicken to be part of CS:GO

    I'd like to thanks particulary this chicken who litterally killed my competitive game because I laughed so hard after this.
