Grand Theft Auto Court Ban on Cheat Mods

Court issues order for Take-Two Interactive to ban any program used for illegal mods and cheating on GTA.

It has been five years since controversial action-adventure video game Grand Theft Auto V has been released and by now developer/publisher Rockstar Games have seen a lot success including the game doing extremely well in terms of sales and had their fair share of debates. The latest piece of quarrel is regarding a court order to shut down illegal mods that allow players to perform cheats in GTA V and Grand Theft Auto Online when playing the PC version of the game.

A Georgia resident named David Zipperer has been selling two mods by the name Absolute and Menyoo for some time now. Back in March, Rockstar Games has sued Zipperer with an allegation of infringing their copyright properties and violating terms of use of the game. The preliminary injunction won by parent company of the developers of GTA V, Take-Two Interactive bans him from selling those two mods and forbids creating any more unoriginal works for the title.

What Absolute and Menyoo does is allowing players to alter a several number of in-game constraints, which makes the devs unhappy and uncomfortable. For single-player version of the game on PC, these mods are still available on various other hosting. However, it costs money when you try to use them GTA Online, multiplayer mode of GTA V. The mods will allow anyone to generate nearly unlimited amount of in-game currency that Rockstar Games sells to people for real money.

It hurts the developers because; this move has taken a significant toll on the quarterly revenue of Take-Two following the launch of GTA Online in 2013. They complained that mods created by Zipperer had cost them a minimum of $500,000 while damaged their reputation to legit players who couldn't keep up with cheaters and eventually quit playing after a time. Reportedly, upon receiving threat of taking legal action from Take-Two, makers of those mods had shut down their sites.

Fallout 76 Anti-Bullying System

Bethesda reveals at QuakeCon 2018 that upcoming Fallout 76 has a unique system to deal with grieving.

Back in June, developer/publisher Bethesda publicly stated that their upcoming online multiplayer action role-playing game Fallout 76 will stop in-game PvP bullying but did not get into much detail on that subject. Recently, on their panel at QuakeCon 2018, the studio discussed more about their anti-bullying measures to make sure that toxic bullies and griefers don't get away with their actions after simply attacking or killing uninterested parties just because they can.

RELATED: Fallout 76 to Stop PvP Bullying

When playing online, you are in for a whole new level of playing experience but that also means that, you are also exposed to the possibility of being harassed by mean people. With F76, the series goes for its first MMO and multiplayer modes can invite all sorts of issues to ruin the fun. Since they are getting rid of NPCs, whenever you come across another character, it really is another player on the other end. Sometime they can be friendly to work together and sometime they are jerks.

RELATED: Fallout 76 Was Teased in Fallout 4

It was revealed at E3 2018 press conference that, there is a cache of nuclear weapons in West Virginia and there is a pretty good chance that people who gets their hands on such power may want to abuse it by messing up other players' game. Apparently, there are a series of codes you will need to get access of those launch facilities and to ensure less frequent nuclear launches the developers made the process complex enough. If you are worried for your structure, move it elsewhere using C.A.M.P. tool.

RELATED: Fallout 76 C.A.M.P. Gameplay

In case of one player attacking another player, it causes very little damage and you can either ignore it or fight back. When you are retaliating, both parties will do full damage to the other. However if someone tries to kill you without being provoked, game director Todd Howard and project leader Jeff Gardner believes they do have a solution for that. Soon as one party kills another, the attacker becomes a "Wanted Murderer" with no rewards for the kill and has a bounty placed on them.

Not only that, the bounty placed on that player will be paid with money from his own pool and his position on the map will be visible to everyone a red star. While getting killed sucks, you don't lose too much except for the junk you’ve just collected. Otherwise, you weapons are safe and sound. As it comes to deal with abusing griefers, the studio has come up with a very unique idea to sort out the problem by giving a taste of their own medicine to ensure fun PVP gaming for the rest of the crowd.

RELATED: Fallout 76 B.E.T.A. Starts in October

When Fallout 76 finally launches worldwide on November 14 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, you will surely find out much more as you are wandering around the nuclear wasteland. Affects of bullying online are always a huge concern for everyone and can become a big issue for others. It is really nice to see that Bethesda cares enough about this that they created a measure to check the issue before implementing a major change of play in Fallout franchise.

Also, the game sticks to a gameplay mechanics where effects of gunshots are more realistic unlike other known FPS titles where you take multiple shots and can still play. What makes it more challenging is a very intelligent AI system that makes it quite hard to kill an enemy. This forces players to work together towards success and defeat your enemies with teamwork. The sequel adds new features like adding an option to play as a female soldier and allows character customization as well.

Steam often gives away free game to players and some of them are really great to try aside from saving your money and perhaps even get interested for a latter installment sometime.

IGN Editor Fired for Plagiarized Review Responds to Allegations

Fired IGN editor Filip Miucin talks about his involvement on the alleged plagiarism of Dead Cells game review.

When allegations of plagiarized review on newly released rogue-like metroidvania game Dead Cells came out online on August 7, people started calling IGN out like crazy while they quickly deleted the copy from their site and took action against the accused editor Filip Miucin by officially firing him from their team. After taking heavy fire for past few days over this controversy, the accused have finally decided to take YouTube for explaining his side of the story in a response video.

This is the first time when Miucin actually opened up about the fiasco that has disgraced him on public and cost him his job. However, his tone towards the matter was less than expected as he starts with saying that he didn't intentionally do that and then apologized to developer Motion Twin as well as his former employer company, except for YouTube channel Boomstick Gaming, who has accused him of content theft in the first place. It clearly shows that he was not sincere about his apology.

RELATED: Resident Evil 2 Remake Premium Edition Announced

Even IGN was open enough to publicly issuing an apology to a relatively small YouTube channel Boomstick Gaming who made a video by making side-by-side comparison about how his original review video on the game was copied. Miucin only made the video when people kept attacking him on social media but this response video was heavily downvoted by viewers and was later removed by him. So, what really stopped Filip from mentioning the source for once that he was ripping off?

RELATED: Doom Eternal Comes to Nintendo Switch

Previously, an article on Kotaku pointed out that he partially plagiarized the FIFA 18 review from NintendoLife site in last September. On account of that incident, original author of that review Chris Scullion stated over Miucin’s speech that, he clearly failed to admit his guilt. However, Boomstick Gaming has gained the spotlight and this newfound fame has tripled the number of Subscribers to the channel since then.

RAGE 2 Extended Gameplay Demo

To show-off more action from RAGE 2, Bethesda released an extended gameplay demo at QuakeCon 2018.

Before the game could get officially announced by publisher Bethesda Softworks at E3 2018 press conference, news of upcoming first-person shooter RAGE 2 was leaked by a product listing of Walmart Canada a few weeks ago. What followed next was some funny banter thrown at them by Bethesda’s Pete Hines and new gameplay trailer from E3 revealed that it clearly steps ahead of its predecessor.

These fractions are situated in different part of the map and will fight you differently in their own way.

RELATED: Xbox Game Pass Adds Doom and Rage

We noticed that the sequel is set apart from many elements of the original game, probably because it received some backlash then. However, the world we will return to is still pretty violent and everything is way too vibrant colors. Vehicle and weapons play a great deal whether in facing unwary enemies or engaging into crazy boss fights. Combat system is made more fluid and fast paced as an improvement to Rage. In fact, the game takes inspiration for aggression from Wolfenstein II.

RELATED: RAGE 2 Official Gameplay Trailer

RAGE 2 is developed by Avalanche Studios and id Software, which currently is set to release on spring 2019 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. One thing that has blessed the game so much is the collaboration of two studios, where Avalanche Studios used their skills in building a vast open-world and id Software provided their experience with immensely popular FPS titles like Doom. We can already tell that this action-packed game with a Mad Max-esque theme would turn out great.

Shadow’s setting, jungles of Peru are highlighted and shown how it lets Lara adapts her tactics against a militant force. Sneaking past her enemies to land a sudden attack or using her surroundings for camouflage is what makes her as dangerous as the landscape she is in. Also by developing her skill tree, new skills can be unlocked or finding out ancient totems like Eagle’s Talon can do that. It allows her to perform a rope takedown on an unsuspecting enemy and leave him hanging on a tree.

Let's not forget about the deadly jaguars that dwell on the jungle of South America and can come face-to-face with her. Survival skills will come in handy in situations like this and avoiding attacks before delivering the killing blow is very crucial. To keep track of its position, there are Perception herbs similar to previously introduced Medicinal herbs. Past titles have had players deal with wolf packs but this is completely a different game altogether and using nearby setting to save your skin is the right idea.

These tombs are more expansive than ever and some of them will take Lara underwater just like the old days but with deadly piranhas lurking around.

However, these are all the contents you can get in a Collector’s Edition and are roughly worth $225. The question remains, what is the rest of the money are for? Turns out, an official vintage modeled Lexington typewriter that is actually a bluetooth enabled USB keyboard and four ink ribbons rolled up as masking/washi tape are what raises the price. This fully-functional keyboard compatible with Mac and Windows has a stand on it not to put a blank paper but to mount your tablet or smartphone.

Despite trying to make the design of the typewriter as traditional as possible, it doesn't look anything like the one shown in Resident Evil 2 Remake. If you simply order the original model of this modified version, you can acquire it for only $249. Therefore, it takes approximately $475 to get all of the goodies mentioned above. Two in-game items, Samurai Edge – Chris and Jill Model pistols doesn't seem to cost much as well. So, we are still trying to figure out what that extra $425 is for!

This is of course great news for every eager fans and seasoned veterans of the series waiting for a new release to look forward to. Some of these current projects may take a while but by the end of this year, we might be getting some glimpse on the progress probably on Blizzcon.

Hopefully, Diablo IV is in development as an upcoming mainline sequel and chances for Diablo and Diablo II getting remastered edition is also there. We can even get a themed card game like Hearthstone. Considering how popular it still is and features some of the most satisfying boss battles in gaming history, the developers had to bring it back. There was a rumor of Diablo III to release on Nintendo Switch, which was a tease by Blizzard and we still don't have any confirmation on that either.

Although they made no announcement for brand-new installments of the franchise up until this point, a job listing from June revealed that Blizzard was looking for artists to create some environmental, technical and VFX assets, suggesting a possible new Diablo game is in works. So, this revelation does not come as a shock to us at all. Despite having several other original accomplishments like Overwatch, StarCraft and World of Warcraft, Diablo will always be one of Blizzard's signature brands.

Just like Arthur and Sally, Ollie had an awakening about the fact that the retro-futuristic city they live in has some terrible dark past and a hallucinogenic drug known as "Joy" is doing that. Being a mad Scotsman and ex-soldier, he is not liked by everyone around him and he hates television celebrity Uncle Jack but he has an invisible friend though. Despite pitted against all odds, he did keep his Scottish heritage intact and even managed to survive in the Garden District nearing old train station.

On their take on Ollie's character, art director Whitney Clayton wanted to go for someone who is a tough nut to crack. While he is still wearing his old military jacket and old army boots, he is more than a soldier who notices the anomaly of his society. Although he may not remember all of his past in entirety, he finds purpose in life upon discovering secrets of the Victory Memorial Camp. Like the other two playable figures, Ollie Starkey has his unique perks and abilities that will help him uncover the truth.
