Batman: Arkham Knight PC Patch Next Month

Perhaps spurred by an unconfirmed report that fixes for the Windows edition of Batman: Arkham Knight would not come until fall, a Steam Community Group Announcement from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment says they expect to release a patch next month to address the issues that caused them to cease selling the PC version of the superhero sequel (thanks PC Invasion). They call this an "interim patch" so the indications that the game won't be sold again until autumn may still turn out to be accurate. Here's the latest:
As an update, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Rocksteady and our partners are targeting an interim patch update for existing players to be released in August. This update will address many of the issues we listed in our June 27 update. We will provide additional details as we finalize that interim patch over the coming weeks.

We would like to thank you for your continued patience and invaluable feedback. We are continuing to monitor and listen for any additional issues and are driving towards a full update for everyone as quickly as we possibly can.

Fallout 4 Website

The Fallout 4 website is now live, offering an official home of Bethesda Softworks' upcoming return to the Wasteland. According to the Bethesda Blog: "For the first time since unveiling the game, we’re excited to announce the newly-expanded Check out all the latest videos, screenshots, concept art, and more from Fallout 4, plus content on Fallout Shelter and other games in the series beginning with the original Fallout."

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain NVIDIA Bundle Plans?

A reddit thread reporting that Newegg is offering a free copy of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain with NVIDIA GPUs as a replacement for the problematic Arkham Knight seems to be accurate, if premature, as a post purportedly from Newegg support says this is coming soon. Word is: "Hi everyone! We had a little slip up and posted this deal ahead of schedule. It is not currently available, but stay tuned, it will be soon! Newegg Support -Tori." Presumably this will be an NVIDIA bundle, not specific to the e-tailer. Thanks DSOGaming.

No Time To Explain Remastered

No Time To Explain Remastered is now available on Steam for Windows, Linux, and OS X, offering a remake of tinyBuild's debut release. This news post has a list of hotfixes that are part of the launch and also points the way to a launch trailer that introduces the game's time-travelling premise and shows a bit of its retro platformer gameplay. Here's a bit:
Chase your future self through time and alternate realities while fighting giant monsters, collecting hats, and eating cake! No Time To Explain is a game about Time Paradoxes, Jetpack Guns and Ribs In People's Eyes. It's a comedy platformer featuring great music, voice acting and gameplay that becomes more ridiculous as you go.

Out of the Blue

Got a rack of ribs to smoke, but a rainy forecast puts that in doubt... Tomorrow is supposed to be clear, but I had other plans, and it's supposed to be about a million degrees anyway, so I may try to set up a patio umbrella over the smoker and brave the elements today and just hope we don't get the high winds that thunderstorms often bring. Heavy is the head that wears the crown in Manstovia.
