Player Beats Resident Evil 2 Remake on Hardcore Mode, No-Hit Run

The long-awaited horror remake of Resident Evil 2 is a cakewalk for YouTuber CarcinogenSDA and here a "no-hit" walkthrough run by him.

Fans of survival horror game are having a great time with the recently released Resident Evil 2 Remake by developer/publisher Capcom for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. However, a considerable number of people are failing to enjoy it because they find it too difficult.

Amidst many complain of newcomers that are unable to get past the police station or constantly getting their butt handed to them by Mr. X, we came across a playthrough of RE2 Remake by a player where he completes "Leon A" story with ease, taking no damage.

If you belong to the group who thinks they wasted their money on the game, you might want to check out the walkthrough.

Our guy CarcinogenSDA is good at what he does and what he does is speed-running and "no-hit" walkthrough runs on a variety of video games. When it comes to Resident Evil series, he is a professional in completing the titles with an unmatched level of skills.

Going through the highest difficulty mode was to prove a point that even though tricky, it can be done. Best part of the whole experience was the inclusion of every cut-scene alongside the helpful commentary for those who need some tips.

You might want to take note on why you should shoot the knees off a zombie rather than trying to get a headshot as they do not always blow their brains out for good. The terrifying trench coat wearing Tyrant bio-weapon doesn't seem to give him any tough time either.

Another grand take from this video is masterful inventory management and using the right weapons for each enemy type. Although the entire playthrough is done on PC version, it wouldn't hurt console players can take a look as well.

So, it's time to quit whining about zombies being bullet sponges, Mr. X is giving you a hard time by being too persuasive, weapons are weak and get your ass back in the game trying to "git gud" instead, because only that would really help you other than anything.

Resident Evil 2 Remake is actually everything you want in a remake and then some more but it is also obvious that not everyone is an ace survivor who can overcome the Raccoon City outbreak like a walk in the park even on our best day and that is okay.

Escape from Tarkov Devs Hits Another YouTuber With DMCA

After going against Eroktic, Escape from Tarkov developers tries to silence another YouTuber with DMCA complaints.

Although Digital Millennium Copyright Act was meant for movie, music or video game industry to have legal rights over the unauthorized use of their intellectual property, it has been used by many to harass streamers on YouTube and Twitch lately.

What happens here is that developer Battlestate Games of multiplayer tactical shooter game Escape from Tarkov repeating an act of misusing DMCA complaints on a content creator on YouTube after doing the same thing last month for the same reason.

Right after that news caught enough attention, another YouTuber running the handle "EL_Dee" came out sharing a similar story of receiving 47 claims from DMCA for video content on EFT for the given reason of using the watermark and logo of the Russian studio.

This is clearly a ridiculous excuse to hit someone with DMCA takedowns over false accusations by the developer team, because every other content creator does so. EL_Dee claims that their channel was singled out for allegedly creating "negative hype".

When reached out for comments, a representative of Battlestate informed after a month stating that the claims were submitted almost 8 months ago by a company named AbsolutSoft, who were working on parts of the game then.

They also said that after their situation with Eroktic earlier, they are being very careful with anything that led to legal process. However, AbsolutSoft is a subcontractor for them and has links to their game producer Nikita Buyanov.

RELATED: Battlefield V Player Visibility Issues Experiment

Even though developers are unwilling to take any responsibility over this, Buyanov himself requested EL_Dee personally to take down his negative videos from YouTube before the channel got hit with claims. You can see screenshot of that posted on Reddit.

Whether or not Battlestate or Buyanov was involved against EL_Dee to issue those DMCA complaints, the studio is trying to evade any involvement and is avoiding any responsibility for causing these creators lose money from videos.

In December 2018, Battlestate Games have chose to abuse DMCA by issuing over 47 copyright strikes against YouTube channel Eroktic, saying the videos were spreading negative hype using inaccurate information and even tried justifying their action.

When this news hit the web, both the community of players and other content creators rallied up in his support and Battlestate took back all of their claims except two. However, their unethical business practices made everyone distasteful at them.

In both of the cases, Battlestate actually had no problem with the YouTubers using their content. In fact, what they were trying to do was hold back negative hype being created from their video as Eroktic originally exposed a leak of two million player profiles.

Of course the goal of DMCA was to give content creators and copyright holders the means to fight back anyone using their material without consent but if a corporation decides to exploit its merits to shut down any criticism, it is a real concern for everyone.

Escape from Tarkov Devs Silence YouTuber With DMCA Takedown

Escape from Tarkov developer Battlestate Games issues DMCA takedowns to stop YouTuber over false accusations.

Although copyright law Digital Millennium Copyright Copyright Act was originally intended to help content creators fight violations, it has a history of abuse as well. Things turned ugly this time between a Russian developer studio and a YouTuber.

Multiplayer tactical shooter title Escape from Tarkov developer team Battlestate Games have recently created a huge controversy within gaming community by issuing 47 DMCA claims on YouTube videos posted on the channel Eroktic.

Recently, Eroktic received two copyright complaints targeting videos where the owner of the YouTube gaming channel discussed about an alleged security breach that could affect the user base of the game, based on information received from third-party.

The developers however, disproves of this claim and characterized them as misinformation and then to put a stop to these claims spreading any further, they submitted DMCA takedown claims against the videos posted on the channel to make them disappear.

DMCA is actually designed to address copyright infringement and not to resolve other disputes, which was a problem in this case. One of the clips actually had seven seconds of in-game footage of Escape from Tarkov that comes under fair use but without any further investigation, they were taken down.

To make sure Eroktic will not be talking about their incompetence or spread "misinformation" anymore, Battlestate Games goes further to issue claims over 47 more videos from the esteemed channel that has no infringing material or whatsoever.

They took Facebook to address the ongoing issue to the community but that didn't end well as you can see in the post below.



RELATED: The Avengers Project Will Begin Development Soon

The studio claims that user information such as passwords and personal details has not been leaked from their company database and Eroktic has falsely stated otherwise in his videos, thus damaging the company reputation.

Battlestate also said later that misinformation was only a partial reason for striking those videos and their primary concern was actually a potential "negative hype" that could've caused by them and that is how they are justifying their takedown actions.

RELATED: Blizzard Cancelled Heroes of the Storm eSports 2019

The problem with the DMCA act is that any infringement is an infringement regardless of the intent of both parties and that gives developers and publishers the opportunity to make such claims and looks like the studio in question is simply abusing the loophole.

To show solidarity with Eroktic channel, one of Battlestate's affiliated content creators OnepegMG has resigned while another influencer known as "Klean" decided not to continue creating his popular podcast Talking Tarkov anymore.

Though many are alleging sites and YouTubers of clickbaiting as they are talking about the fiasco, we believe this is the one of the most effective way to reach out to the community. In fact, channels like BigfryTV and TheQuartering are fighting to get those strikes removed and help a fellow content creator.

Last year, YouTube star Felix Kjellberg AKA PewDiePie came under fire from co-founder of Firewatch developer Campo Santo after using a racial slur on a stream playing PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds and threatened to issue DMCA takedown if he uses their content in any videos.

Epic Games Store Announced

Launching as a competitor to Steam, Epic Games announced to start their own digital storefront Epic Games Store.

Whether you have been indulged into the Battle Royale mania with free-to-play title Fortnite or not you probably must have heard of developer/publisher Epic Games. Amassing a staggering number of 125 million worldwide in less than a year, they have scored big time!

After winning over the gaming world with a phenomenon game lately, Epic Games is currently focusing on a major online game distribution platform of their own, which would be a competitor to Steam, a prominent digital storefront of Valve Corporation.

This is not something that Epic has jump on board with and in fact, they have been developing launcher for their own game compatible for Mac and PC that supports a digital commerce worldwide by handling several different payment methods.

So, to get into a direct relationship with players and help all developers, Epic Games Store will be launched soon. Though their initial plan only includes platforms like Mac and PC, there are plans for expanding to Android and other open platforms for a broader reach by 2019.

RELATED: Steam to Remove Adult Games

Epic will open up with a hand full of curated games and then will expand their collection as they progress. People can either purchase the game from the store or just access it with Epic Games launcher but everything else will be handled through the application.

Current Fortnite players are already considered as users of their launcher and Epic Games decided to make their game exclusively available to their digital store. This is a practice that would be continued for the foreseeable future.

The biggest perk of the platform is that it offers a more flattering revenue split with developers than Steam or any other. Moving aside from the standard 70/30 revenue split, Epic Games Store is considering giving developers 88 percent of the revenue for the games.

It that is not sounding crazy enough, developers won't have to pay up the 5 percent engine royalty for using Unreal Engine to create the game. Epic will cover for that 5% of extra charge from their small margin on a total of 12%.

RELATED: Alan Wake is Back on Steam

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney believes that business for digital storefronts have grown quite exponentially over the decade but the economies revolving around it has not benefited the developers much for years; especially indie developers.

Aside from that, Epic also launched Support-A-Creator program recently that will hook up content creators from YouTube, streamers on Twitch, video game Bloggers and such with developers to help them share revenue for affiliate marketing. That's so EPIC!

RELATED: The Game Awards 2018 Nominees

Consumers of the store will be handed out at least one free game after every two weeks throughout 2019 and they will cover the fees of those releases on behalf of the developers, so they don't miss out or lose money over this.

Epic Games can easily become a digital distribution platform giant in no time if they stay true to their plan of incentives and promises to share more details about their plans regarding the store this Thursday, on December 6 at The Game Awards 2018.

Dark Souls 3 Secret Bonfire System Revealed

Early builds of Dark Souls 3 to include secret bonfire system and PvP invasion mechanics by developer From Software.

The third entry in the Dark Souls series from developer From Software and publisher Bandai Namco Entertainment, Dark Souls III came out in early 2016 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but still houses many unraveled mysteries for players to discover today.

Recently, a YouTuber named Lance McDonald has discovered a hidden multiplayer content that has been left within the game without completing and never revealing to the masses. Some of these were part of the original leak from the game before it was released. Sounds interesting, right?

Following is a video that McDonald has uploaded lately where he shows his findings step by step in playthrough.




RELATED: Dark Souls: Remastered New Gameplay

An early leak before the launch of the game suggested that From Software was about to introduce a new mechanic where players could sacrifice enemies in a form of ritual, which will let them invade other players' game and even attack them.

The game's first downloadable content, Ashes of Ariandel had a dedicated PvP arena for players to duke it out but looks like, the developers originally intended to mix things up a little bit for player invasions with the new sacrifice mechanic.

RELATED: Dark Souls Trilogy Announced for PS4 and Xbox One

Somehow, that gameplay system didn't end up getting included in the final version of Dark Souls III but McDonald has managed to dig up details on how it would have been. There is an unfinished Cult Death system for letting players drag down few Hollow NPCs to turn on cult bonfires.

While these portable bonfires would have allowed players to level up or reverse hollowing, there is another type of bonfire that can be created using Ceremony Swords and upon plunging it into an enemy corpse, it would lead to a cut-scene animation.

RELATED: Dark Souls 3 Mod Forces of Annihilation Out Now

This ceremony was meant to trigger an eclipse that would let them to invade other players in darkened worlds to engage in PvP battles. Since they opted out from this at the last moment, the function doesn't work properly and player character is stuck there.

Whatever reasons From Software had for not including this into the final version of Dark Souls III, it could've been such a great fun. Who knows what else content have they scrapped ahead of launch like this alpha multiplayer system and hidden ceremonies?

Red Dead Redemption 2 Videos Deleted and Restored by YouTube

YouTube deletes and then restores back Red Dead Redemption 2 controversial videos of killing feminist NPC.

Developer/publisher Rockstar Games didn't launch Western-themed action-adventure game Red Dead Redemption 2 with intent of just riding horses and camping in the woods but it also involves a lot of rooting tooting cowboy shooting.

Since the in-game lead character Arthur Morgan is an outlaw, you expect him being involved in some activities during the gameplay that may not be pleasant but that is okay. However, it seems that YouTube wasn't so sure about it before it became a matter of concern.

Recently, YouTube took down a gaming channel known as Shirrako Gaming of 500,000  subscribers base for a gameplay video they uploaded earlier, claiming the content have broke their community guidelines by showing the player attacking a feminist NPC (Non-Player Character).

Titled "Annoying Feminist Fed To Alligator", the video depicts Arthur attacks a female suffragette before saddling her up on his horse and then feeding her to an alligator to take a chomp at her. He then stomped her with boots for a while afterwards.

RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Companion App Hints PC Version

Now such display of violence against suffragette woman NPC in RDR2 are often labeled online as attacks against feminists and these videos are quickly becoming very popular to a certain part of gaming community these days.

YouTube apparently couldn't tell real footage of violence from the ones taken from popular video game and took them down for breach of guidelines but these contents are only prohibited if they come under fire, which t didn't.

Shirrako Gaming promptly took Twitter to address the takedown of his channel by the video-sharing website for promoting violence by killing a female NPC.



RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Weaponry Details

Immediately after the ban, a massive fan-outcry followed over the deletion move by the site and upon realizing their mistake, the action is reviewed again and the channel was eventually restored the following day with all videos.

Seeing the matter going out of hands, the company's wider gaming team handled the situation and YouTube's head of gaming, Ryan Wyatt confirmed that they will educate the reviewers from repeating such mistakes in future to avoid such inconvenience.

Here is the video in question that created the so called feminist controversy on YouTube regarding the game.




RELATED: Red Dead Redemption 2 Launch Trailer

Now that the air is clear once again, people are hitting search for Red Dead Redemption 2 videos where women's rights activists are getting punched in the face, run over by trains or even thrown into mine shafts in the Wild West.

However, these controversial video clips are now restricted only to audience above 18 years of age and that clearly makes sense. Hopefully, the misogynistic attitude towards outspoken feminists within a game is not going to be the subject of their concern anymore.

YouTube Gaming Launched New Hub

A new gaming hub is launched by YouTube that works to promote creators and serve better gaming content.

One of the most popular categories of videos that effortlessly dominate YouTube than any other is gaming. Now, while players of different demographics can find it pretty exciting, it can be real tough sometime to find out definite titles or proffered creators on the platform.

To tackle this unwanted issue, a brand-new dedicated tab is added to the video-sharing website for gaming related videos. This will help people find out the games they are looking for or popular gaming content creators.

YouTube Gaming may not sound like a new concept because they previously served an app to show gaming content. However, despite their best efforts to make it stand out, it actually hampered visibility for many creators, according to head of YouTube Gaming, Ryan Wyatt.

Without the app or going to the gaming hub, people couldn't really find contents or their creators on the platform. Besides, most of the users simply used it for the regular streaming experience.

Back then only a few handful of them came out on top while a huge number of them was never even reached. The new gaming tab on YouTube is added onto the main site and is designed to discover various creators, which will look the same as before.

Meanwhile, the YouTube Gaming app will be available but only until March 2019, when it will be taken down officially. So, the community of gamers and creators will be all gathered onto one place for better access to find each other.

As a pioneer in video-streaming sites, YouTube receives more than 200 million of traffic everyday who comes to watch gaming videos and live streams. It simply points out how bigger of a platform it has become for the video gaming community.

Many come there looking for simple walkthrough videos, reviews, charity live and even Esports on a regular basis. Also, over the last 12 months, the site has amassed 50 billion hours of watch time from various range of gaming content.

YouTube's new initiative for gaming has worked on essential tools for the past few years, focusing the efforts to deliver a better experience for everyone visiting the platform. In 2015, the newly launched gaming app failed but also helped the team test what works and what doesn't.

Wyatt states that, with their redefined home for gaming, the tab will incorporate more with the main site and help every visitors find popular and preferred creators and their trending contents more easily.

Users will receive personalized recommendations tailored for them at the top, based on their watch history as well as recently uploaded videos of your subscribed channels and their top live game streaming.

Seeing all those changes introduced to the system, some might even say that YouTube is apparently trying to mimic Twitch on certain levels. However, Ryan Wyatt admits that despite gaming being one of the biggest parts of their business, Twitch is doing great in balancing live-stream.
