But their upcoming 'Liberty City in GTA V' mod project has been forever cancelled!

The modding community on the Internet has been screaming ever since Take-Two came down hard on the very popular GTA V modding tool called 'OpenIV' serving them an Cease and Desist letter back on June 14th, that forced the website to remove the 'tool' for downloading, but after much discussion the tool is back with updates and will be allowed to continue but with some changes.
After years of hunting, digging through the code and searching every inch of the game, GTA V fans have finally found life from beyond the stars.

Everyone loves Aliens right, and they for some reason been missing from Grand Theft Auto, but no longer, modders and hackers have found an 'easter egg' of sorts or in this case an 'alien egg', and it seems to be some sort of upcoming UFO Crashing into Los Santos mission, all tho its not officially available, GTA modders were able to tweak the 'code variables' to get parts of it to be playable! :)
No More Wasting Those Two Minutes Waiting For Your Hot Food!

The invention of the microwave changed the world, just like video gaming did, and now both worlds are merging together!
Because now you can play video games on a Microwave, while you wait for your food to heat up, no more wasted time at all!

Microwaving food is so fast that most people just stand there in front of the oven watching the clock countdown, but no more as you can now use that time for gaming! :)
So what do you normally do during those two minutes you’re waiting on for your hot food?

Ever dreamed on creating a game for PS3 and Xbox360 for free? Now you can!!!

A modified version of EPIC`s UDK Game Engine has been released that does not need for you to have 'registered developer account' and it fully supports exporting your game design to an JTAG/RGH XBOX 360 console or you PS3 console running Custom Firmware.
UDKUltimate has been in development for a few years, and now its been released for all those homebrew game designers out there that have dream of producing a powerful game for everyone to enjoy playing on their Xbox 360 console or PlayStation 3 console, of course since this is an unlicensed version of EPIC's UDK Game Engine, those wishing to enjoy your homebrew games will need a modded box.
Cartridges are back

If you want to play Dustin Long’s most recent game, you’ll need a console that was first released more than 30 years ago.
What was once trash a few years ago, is now prized consoles and developers are returning and making new games for the retro lovers.
Descended from Xbox Media Center software, it's a crime wave to copyright cops!
70% of Kodi Installations Are Configured to Access Unlicensed Video Content

You know a technology's gone mainstream when the tabloids start yelling about it.
This year the Sun, the Mirror, the Express, and the Daily Star have run splashes ranging from "Kodi Crackdown" through "Kodi Killers" to "Kodi TOTAL BAN!".

We here at MaxConsole have been around since the start, when XBMC was born and was the Killer App to install on your modded original Xbox console, since those humble start, the team moved onto and became more mainstream out of the underground and even changed their name to Kodi, and for a while have enjoyed their new found award-winning fame.

But now they are becoming the subject of 'crackdowns' around the world, with UK leading the way, with media calling them the 'Kodi Killers', and places like...
Gets Free Trip To BlizzCon!

Last month, Reddit user Khemist49 made a truly unlikely find: a gold master source code disc of the original StarCraft from 1998.
Recently, Blizzard has made the original StarCraft FREE for all to enjoy, but someone found something even better, the Source Code for the game, but instead of warez'ing it to the underground, he returned it to Blizzard and they in exchange treated him to BlizzCon.
Originally Published by Lindasoft, it has finally been Cracked for all Retro Atari Emulators to enjoy playing again!

Back in 2014 Fred Meijer, head of AtariMuseum, shared a video of a game on the Atari 8-Bit called “I Beatles e il Papiro della Pace”.
This “loosely” translates to “The Beatles and the Papyrus of Peace”.

The only problem is the cartridge had very good 'copy protection' preventing ROM dumps of it from working on emulators, but no more!
Thanks to the user AtariGeezer, who finally found the trick to remove the copy protection, this super rare game is now available for all!...
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! :)
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!
Power To The Players has become Data For The Hackers

Video game giant GameStop Corp. says it is investigating reports that hackers may have siphoned credit card and customer data from its website — gamestop.com.
Gamestop might have pissed off the wrong customer this time around, as it seems they have recently been the target of data 'hackers'.

Basically the same in sales as the Nintendo Wii U console!

The official Raspberry Pi magazine just announced that over 12.5 million of the affordable little Linux boards have been sold since the original Pi was launched in 2012.
The Nintendo Wii U console is just around million more sold when compared to the Raspberry Pi, the little board that everyone originally thought would never become popular, really has taken off and spawned a whole range of different sizes and horsepower versions.
Keeping the legend alive.

Dreamcast enthusiasts have made playable an unreleased racing game found on a devkit.
SEGA might have killed off their DreamCast console decades ago, but not for the fans of the system, they are still enjoying finding out all its secrets, and in this case making a game recently found on devkit, fully playable so all can enjoy seeing the racer come alive! :)
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!
