, their zombie
action/RPG. Following an early access run the undead game is now live for
Windows, Linux, and OS X. You can pick up a copy with a 25% launch discount from
. Here's word on
Zombasite is a nasty, voracious, all-consuming Zombie Parasite.
It doesn't just reanimate the dead into mindless zombies. It is intelligent,
insatiable, and unstoppable—infecting and killing the living, spreading faster
and in more ways, helping the dead utilize many of their original skills, and
mutating the dead with new powers. Dark elf zombies are terrifying!
So what does this have to do with you? You are the leader of a clan trying to
survive the apocalypse. This is easier said than done. When a follower dies,
they can't be saved by any means. The Zombasite is highly contagious and zombies
are quickly ravaging the world's surface. Food is a critical resource that must
be obtained. Vendors are rare and have limited supplies. Some of the stronger
monsters have survived and are as dangerous as ever. Clans of humans and
monsters are fighting over what few supplies are left. Even within your own clan
it isn't safe. Humans living on the edge are even more unstable than usual. So
yeah, survival isn't easy.
- Survive the zombie apocalypse in a fantasy world
- Experience uniquely created worlds for every game,
with different areas, monsters, items, and quests
- Explore a dynamic, evolving, living world
- Lead a clan of followers who have their own
personalities and skills
- Navigate relationships with rival clans using
diplomacy, trade, war, and raids
- Many hybrid classes to experience - 8 full
classes, 24 specialties, 260 total combinations
- Adventure with your friends with co-op multiplayer
- Your choices truly impact the game!
- Customize your experience with many character and
world options including turning off zombies and clans.
- GaymerX returns on September 30th for
a fourth installment in this LBGT-focused gaming event.
PlayStation Now is coming to Windows PCs. This will bring formerly
PlayStation-exclusive titles when it launches in Europe soon and North America
"shortly thereafter." It will also be supported by a new DualShock 4 USB wireless
adaptor. Here's word:
We’re excited to announce that PlayStation Now is
making the jump to Windows PC. The app launches overseas in parts of Europe soon
and will come to North America shortly thereafter.
This will bring a wide selection of PlayStation exclusive titles to Windows PC
for the very first time, including entries in the Uncharted, God of War, and
Ratchet & Clank franchises, as well as beloved PS3 games like The Last of Us and
Journey. Current subscribers have a new way to access PS Now’s library of over
400 games, and the PC app provides a new way for even more gamers to discover
and play the service.
We’re also introducing a new device, the DualShock 4 USB Wireless Adaptor, which
launches in early September for a suggested retail price of $24.99. This adaptor
will let you connect a DualShock 4 to PC and Mac wirelessly, and will enable
every feature of the controller you know and love: buttons, analog sticks, touch
pad, light bar, motion sensors, vibration, and stereo headset jack – as long as
the gaming application supports these features.
The adaptor is a great match for playing PS Now on a computer, but you can also
use it for PS4 Remote Play on PC and Mac. If you haven’t yet downloaded Remote
Play on your PC or Mac, grab the installer
here. Of course, owning the USB Wireless Adaptor isn’t required, as you can
connect a DualShock 4 using a USB cable.
Here are the recommended specs for running PS Now on your PC:
- Windows 7 (SP1), 8.1 or 10
- 3.5 GHz Intel Core i3 or 3.8 GHz AMD A10 or faster
- 300 MB or more; 2 GB or more of RAM
- Sound card; USB port
A minimum 5Mbps connection is required to use PS Now on any device. We
recommend a wired Internet connection for the optimal experience.
We’ll be in touch to confirm the exact launch date of the PlayStation Now
Windows PC app in North America, and stay tuned for some exciting games that
will be added to the library.

So I was trying to be honest with myself in admitting I would probably end up
watching some of the Olympics. I usually express disinterest and end up
watching, so it seemed I was just being realistic. After all that I ended up not
watching a single second of the games. Not even any replays or highlights. This
wasn't so much deliberate as it worked out that way. But it's weird, because it
usually seems difficult to escape them. I guess this speaks to changing TV
viewing habits as much as anything. I'll see if this trend continues for
the 2018 winter games.
