Splinter Cell 'sale' goes 'viral' on Steam, and they run out of 'keys', leaving lots of bought copies totally useless!

The Splinter Cell series for PC went on sale this weekend on Steam. Every game was discounted at 75% off, including Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the most recent game which Kirk Hamilton called in his review a sort of “greatest hits” collection borrowing the most successful parts from each previous game.


It happens now and then, but normally Valve stops sales, but this time the Steam community is flooding the network with complains that Splinter Cell sale was so popular, alot of people ended up with a pile of digital bits and bytes on their HDD that was worthless, and credit card charge for it, and no key incoming any time soon to turn their purchase into playable enjoyment on their PC Gaming Rigs.

Watch_Dogs_2.jpg
Real-Life Hacktivists from San Francisco and DefCon, helped to design the new missions in the Watch_Dogs sequel.

Thomas Geffroyd spent about 20 years preparing to be the hacker advisor inside Ubisoft for the Watch_Dogs 2 game. Well, not really. But that’s how long he has been close to the hacker community, which provides the central characters and backdrop for the sequel about hacking smart cities.


The first Watch_Dogs was set in Chicago and it was very popular game, and also unique in its gameplay on how it used 'hacking' to control the missions and gameplay, and its sequel will of course be similar, just set in San Francisco where alot of the original hacktivists started, and as such Ubisoft recruited some long-time ones to help design their new game and make the missions better.

August acquisition of the game-streaming site Beam now built directly into Windows.

Microsoft's Windows Creator Update event included a brief segment about the company's game-specific updates. That Wednesday segment kicked off with an announcement that Windows will now come with live, online game-streaming capabilities built in.


Microsoft earlier this year bought a small start-up company called Beam, and today they announced that starting early next year, their Windows 10 devices and of course Xbox One, will be breaking away from using Twitch in regard to 'Game-Streaming' and will be updated to have the 'Beam-Platform' integrated into Windows 10 and of course Xbox One consoles to handle all those 'streaming' needs of broadcasting your 'gameplay' or 'watching' it with your online buddies via their Xbox Live service.

‘Trump Mains Hanzo’: A Super PAC Runs Ad Targeting Florida Videogamers

The billboard's message, while gibberish to non-gamers, says Donald Trump isn't a team player. An anti-Donald Trump super PAC is looking to appeal to swing-state videogamers with a billboard linked to Activision Blizzard Inc.’s hit game “Overwatch."

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

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...
