Rockstar gets wind of the upcoming 'fan project' and shuts it down before it even gets off the ground!

Last month, the mod group known as .White announced “Red Dead Redemption V,” a project that would incorporate Red Dead’s map into Grand Theft Auto V.
But soon after releasing a teaser trailer for the mod on Friday, the group decided to cancel the project after getting of course legal heat!

Thank your local pirate

Because one of the devs helped pirate it as a kid
Even big companies lose their own vault of archives from time to time, so when they want to go back and re-release an old classic, they sometimes have no choice but to ring up some 'pirates' to help them put together the missing pieces and re-create the old games! :)

AnimeMalWare.jpg
In Year 2017, even Malware is Anime!

Anyone affected by the new malware Rensenware, named after the anime-style game Touhou Seirensen (Undefined Fantastic Object), has to score over 200 million points on the game’s “lunatic” level or they won’t be able to access their computer files.
You all have heard of the growing trend of 'ransonware', that locks down your PC forcing you to either cough up big bucks, or say goodbye to your Hard Drive data, and forcing you to reformat, and lose everything you have and in some cases even backups have been infected, but this new breed of 'malware' forces you instead to beat the lunatic high score of almost impossible 200 million points in the game!

To be Repairable or Not To be Touched, is the big legal battle now racing across the United States of America!

In a gritty vintage video games store in Manhattan’s East Village, a man who only wanted to be identified by his PlayStation username, GorillaStump, explained his passion for repairing video game consoles. Years ago, he turned those skills into a job that’s now entangled in legal battles across the county.
They call American, the land of the free, but when it comes to protecting the those video gaming consoles, the ESA and various gaming publishers it lobbies for, are now fighting to remove the 'little-man' operating in shops across america, from picking up a screwdriver and replacing your burned out blu-ray laser, or removing those pennies your kids slipped inside, or replacing that cracked screen or case.

I Took Gamer Drugs For A Week And This Is What They Did To My Body

One Hard-Core Pro Gamer, shares his 'drug filled' video gaming experience with Kotaku, and its an interesting read for sure!
DON'T DO DRUGS! -- Was the message in front of every Arcade machine when you booted it up, and slipped in some quarters, but they were talking about those 'illegal kind' and that was the '80s, now we are in the 2010's and gaming has become a top money-making eSports career, and if not that gamers are also streaming 24/7 their game plays via Twitch with millions of followers, so of course sadly gamers are looking for that 'quick fix' to keep on gaming, as Coffee, Jolt and other normal things are no longer working, and god forbid trying the old-age natural way of SLEEPING, because we all know they have not invented a way YET to stream your Dream-State-Gaming!

Now the group is back, with the long awaited sequel, and this one going to do in-depth with the 'Warez Scene' and interview leaders of various famous release groups like Razor1911, Fairlight and how they played both the 'good guy' and 'bad guy' with the gaming world!

@modrobert has recently uploaded the old Sega Saturn Switchless Mod info to his EurAsia website!

Retro Classing Gaming is the 'cool' thing to be into these days, so its time to go back and look at the days when ' modding' was also 'cool', and it was buying a PIC, programming it, bending the pins out, and then soldering in a few wires inside your 'gaming console'! :)
@modrobert writes: "I've added the ultimate Sega Saturn Switchless Mod by seb to the download section. This makes it possible to switch between 50/60Hz (vertical retrace rate) and to set the console to a region (EUR/US/JP) using the native reset button. Also started a forum topic for Sega switchless mods in general covering Saturn, Mega Drive / Genesis and Master System consoles."

Tools Leaked Online

If you cast your mind back to when Apple refused to unlock an iPhone 5c for the authorities following the San Bernardino incident last year, the company made the argument that if it created a tool for opening up an encrypted iPhone, then it would create the potential for that tool to then fall into the wrong hands and ultimately make iPhone encryption obsolete.
The FBI didn’t agree with this and went ahead and found someone else to do the hacking – Israeli firm Cellebrite, and was rumored to be paid over $1 million to do so, and after a huge outcry over it, neither the FBI would release the info nor the firm of course. -- But never say never to hackers, so in turn the company itself has been hacked and now most of their high-end tools they sell to people like the FBI have been leaked online for all to enjoy for free.

Over 2.5 Million Gamers’ Accounts Now Leaked Online!

Two popular gaming forums 'XBOX360 ISO' and 'PSP ISO' were hacked back in 2015, and all account passwords, email addresses and IP addresses were all just recently exposed and of course forum users are advised to change all of their accounts' passwords asap!
These two hacks occurred almost a month ago, but now the 'databases' have been made public and added online to various 'pwned' sites, and other forum sites like here on MaxConsole and GBATemp have seen a major rise in illegal login attempts of using the now decrypted leaked passwords on similar gamer nick logins, so remember if you have a BAD HABIT of using 'same passwords' on multiple sites, PLEASE STOP DOING THAT and CHANGE THEM right away!

After just five days on the market, the Denuvo-protected PC version of Resident Evil 7: Biohazard has already appeared on pirate sites!

Pirates say they’ve already cracked Resident Evil 7's PC version and have found a way to disable the game’s anti-piracy measures less than a week after release.
Denuvo usually offers months of protection, so this is not only a record defeat but a landmark moment for the world's most famous anti-piracy technology.

Demonstrating Java Homebrew running on native unmodded PlayStation 3 console, thanks to its BD-J support!

Ukko’s Journey was originally a cellphone game developed by LuBlu Entertainment in 2008-2009, but recently they have been porting it over to Blu-Ray Disc Java (BD-J) format as 'Proof-Of-Concept' that is possible to have good Java games running on our gaming consoles!
Interactive Discs have been around for a while, it all started long time ago back with 'laser discs' those big 12" costly suckers that were easy damaged and we had a few interactive games on it, then 3DO and Panasonic come along making it better with their direct CDi format and we saw much better games and even electronic encyclopedias were born back then, but in today's generation of gaming consoles buried in them is the support for Blu-Ray Disc Java (BD-J) and even tho it has the power to handle simple games,...

The developer of Yandere Simulator, a game about a sociopathic high school girl who murders her classmates, is demanding answers from Twitch, which banned the game exactly one year ago.

Today, he posted a YouTube video describing his year of begging Twitch for a reason, which he says has led to nothing.
If you have not played Yandere Simulator, you missing out on the real hardcore of gaming action, but tough luck finding someone playing it on Twitch, as its still banned from being broadcast, and the latest is its all due to complains from 'feminists'. :)

HDoomGuy wants the mod to be a giant, absurd orgy that the entirety of hell is in on.

“If only you could talk to the monsters,” a now-infamous review once said of the original Doom. Here’s a thought, though: what if you could fuck them?
Ever since Doom hit the PC Gaming world, people have been modding to hell and back, but one guy has his eyes set of making stay in hell and to turn into satanic type sexual orgy decided to scare the wits out of you, or turn you on, depending on what makes you tick.
