[04.04.2017] - Extra Time to Be Spent on Optimizations Based on Testing and Fan Feedback

It seems Sniper 3 was not up to scale that their early access players would like the game to be, so developers have decided to go back and polish up the game some more, before finally releasing it on our consoles and PC's.

Even Microsoft knows that the days of gaming on their Xbox Console is numbered and its death is coming fast!

Throughout the history of gaming, the fortunes of PC and consoles has often fluctuated . In recent years PC has gone from strength to strength, to even further strength, and Microsoft agrees. Microsoft’s *deep breath* senior director of product management and planning, Albert Penello, has said we’re at “the point where PCs have eclipsed consoles”.


On a side-note, the picture for this news story is perfect, today is September 30th, the rise of the Black Moon, and some fear its the 'start of the end of the world', so perfect timing to publish a news story about the coming 'end of the consoles era'. :)

Microsoft might be busy working on their Xbox Scorpio console for next year's release, but in reality the world of PC Gaming is fast again becoming the 'master race', and consoles as we...

For misleading Steam users. Yet another problem the game faces.

No Man's Sky has been dropping players like crazy, but that's not the only problem the game faces. Eurogamer reports that the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) is currently investigating developer Hello Games as well as Valve over the way No Man's Sky was advertised on Steam.


These days, you are lucky to find more than 1,000 users online at once playing No Man's Sky, for a game that was hyped up for over a year and was to be the Game of the Year, it has quickly fallen down into the vast wasteland of known game failures, and besides the tons of Steam refunds since the game's release, now the game developers themselves are being looked into on how they hyped up the game before its big release, with a possible 'misleading' claim to be filed soon by ASA once their investigation is over in few months.

Newly Enabled Windows 10 EFS System, Also Prevents Users From Modding Their Games!

Microsoft announced a while ago, that future Windows 10 Games would start to use EFS (encryption-file-system) on all new App Installs, and Forza Horizon 3 makes the beginning of this new system, which has started already to cause problems, and also upset the Forza modding community.


Forza Horizon 3 is the latest in the very popular series of Forza games, and there has been a great number of amazing mods in the past for the older games, but now the latest version is using the newly enabled EFS system of Windows 10, infact if you don't have EFS enabled on your PC, you will not be able to even download the game, instead getting an Error Core 0x80073CF9 displayed.

Besides of course to prevent 'piracy', the new DRM system seems to have been causing issues with game speed and loading, with alot of users complaining...

It’s been hyped, it’s been delayed, and it’s been covered across the games media, but according to one modder, GTA 5 Redux - the big, beautiful graphics mod that enhances the world of Los Santos to a ridiculous degree - is a product of theft.


Recently, GTA Redux Mod was released, and the world was shocked, on how amazing the graphics were, but now another modder is claiming all the work was stolen from him!
