Hmmm, is this just for the PC and expansion pack or does the vanilla Diablo on the consoles get the bonus XP too? Back into GTA online lately but I could get into my second run thru Diablo for extra XP.
Going by their post, everyone who logs in get's 50% bonus XP for the weekend.

Unfortunately it seems to not be the case...

As has been the case with Diablo 3's other bonus XP weekends, the boost will only apply to PC and Mac players.
Though that came from a third party, can't get any info from Blizz site.

Oh wow, heists. After six months.


Sad thing is, still no date, still sometime in the future... So six months and counting. I dunno WTF they are doing over there. I think they have one monkey with 9 broken fingers creating content for this game... So what's everyone else doing, PC port? Next gen port? GTA 6?

Herp derp. Click the link to All Games Beta and the video is there. No conspiracy here.

The all games beta isn't a Youtube feed so can't be shut down by UBI, the Youtube ones have been taken down, twice... Duh.

It looks like they brought it down themselves temporarily to re-edit. because they were misinformed it was PC footage, when it was actually PS4. Read the blurb on their site.

Also when it says "Removed by user" that's exactly what happened.

Ahh IC now, doh, I only read the article on PC gamer and they said it was an UBI take down... heh guess I should know better then to believe a gaming journalist knows WTF they are talking about.

GTA 5 iFruit available on Vita.

Is there a way to get more than one custom license plate? I admit I didn't spend long with the app, as it was rather boring...


No, in fact once you choose a plate you can't even change it... the ifruit app really does suck. Only thing (other then making my first custom plate) I've ever used it for was to train chop. Then you have to feed\water the dog and make him happy before starting a single player game if you actually want chop to do the tricks.

Well, I did managed to snag "TREZNOR" when it came out. But yeah, I messed with the Chop part for about half a day and gave up...

In (console) game, I always left Chop in the doghouse anyway...


I took Chop with me everywhere (outside of story) fun to sic on people and he sniffs out all those secret packages! ... course I've also not touched single player in months.

Actually looks like an UBI takedown... sooo I'd say whatever was in the vid didn't make it into the game. Can't see why UBI would shut down free publicity.

1) What DRM can you possibly put into these monitors you strap to your eyes? Please elaborate, giving some precise details into how you'd set such a system up

Not supporting the doom and gloom coming from people, but to this point in particular... HDCP, almost all of our media related electronic devices have DRM built into them.

Guess we will know the score in two weeks eh? Though it's a far cry from being a game, it will at least be a good indicator of the future, cool space game or endless excuses (willing to cut them some slack on the last, er, excuse)... I'm hoping for a cool space game.

GTA 5 for iphone 8 (and still no PC port).


PC? pffft GTA don't need no stinking PC!

EDIT... Thought it was last patch, but it was the one before that.

Horsedung! Innovation sells, the Wii is the perfect example, innovation that took off. Problem is innovation is always a risk because it's innovative and therefore untested in the market. Corporate hates that so they simply rely on what's worked before. Funny thing is risk and innovation is what made a company corporate in the first place... and every single game made was at one point an innovation.

His thesis is pretty weak too, a lot of the mega sellers are mega sellers because they are "bro games". Plus the whole sports thing was just stupid, it's copying a real life game what else are they supposed to do. Just because innovative games don't do those kind of numbers hardly makes them failures, and he sure does conveniently leave innovative hits off the list, Minecraft anyone. His Mario comparison also bucks the trend he's trying to sell IE it has been in steady decline "doing the same thing with no innovation" ever since it's first mega hit. Has nothing to do with innovation and all to do with more competition in the market... which is the U's biggest problem, they are trying to go it alone in a shared market and it's hurting them. Though after the Wii who can blame them for trying, but that's the risk of being innovative.

The biggest problem with innovation isn't gamers, it's corporate hegemony over the industry. Their reluctance to take risks in an ever increasing cost ratio, and their myopic vision of cashing in on the next "bro game" by copying the last "bro game" formula. Besides, with stuff like kickstarters, steam green light and Sony's commitment to the independent game development, I'd say innovation is as alive as never before... but I guess if it doesn't do COD numbers it doesn't count eh, or if it does (Minecraft) well just conveniently ignore it.

This really IS Genius. Makes you wonder why no other Devs have ever implemented the idea.

Doesn't GTA 5 do this?

Were they doing it with cheaters or just griefers?

Both, and they get thier own pools. Cheaters play with cheaters and greifers play with greifers.

$2B is just insane. $50M I could see, maybe even $100M given that they'd gotten something like $35M in venture capital. But $2B???

I'm beginning to think the 2 billion number is being misrepresented. Somehow I doubt Mark paid 2 billion for the company and it's more like he's investing 2 billion into the company.
