Loot Boxes To Come Under Scrutiny And Govt. Regulations?

Daniel Zeichner, the Labour MP for Cambridge constituency recently submitted two questions to Karen Bradley, the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. These questions are regarding the nature of loot boxes, which have become quite a big topic following the release of major titles like Shadow of War, Forza Motorsport 7 and the open beta for Star Wars Battlefront II. The questions are as follows: Question 1: To ask the Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, what assessment the Government has made of the effectiveness of the Isle of Man’s enhanced protections against illegal and in-game gambling and loot boxes; and what discussions she has had with Cabinet colleagues on adopting such protections in the UK. Question 2: To ask the Secretary of State for Di...

PS3 Games Running At 4K On PC Using This New Emulator

RPCS3, the PS3 emulator got an update recently, which shows how good the PS3 titles were originally meant to look. But due to the lack of processing power, it wasn’t possible at that time. The new update adds some handy new features, including resolution scaling to improve the look of the games. It technically supports upto 10K resolution, but considering that the games made for the console were originally supposed to run at 720p, that’s a bit of overkill. You can check out the video below and see the enormous improvement after upscaling to 4K and adding 16x anisotropic filtering. The best thing is, upscaling these older titles doesn’t even put a lot of load on your GPU. In a blog post, the RPCS3 explains that “anyone with a dedicated graphics card that has Vulkan s...

Games Now Dropping Denuvo Before Launch?

Denuvo was a big deal back in 2016, especially after the group 3DM deemed it “uncrackable” and said that no protected games would appear online for at least 2 years. However, soon, we saw leaks of pirated footage of Rise of the Tomb Raider, and surprisingly, the game was cracked indeed. Since then, a lot of Denuvo-protected games have been cracked, sometimes within the week of release. The situation was the worst when Total War: Warhammer II was released, and cracked WITHIN HOURS. Even after Warhammer II, the situation keeps getting worse. Shadow of War, another major title protected by Denuvo got cracked one day after launch. In the wake of these events, we have to wonder; how is Denuvo still a thing? And for the devs and publishers the question becomes: Is it worth the invest...

Game Designer Says Devs Would Be More Open About Games If It Weren’t For Toxic Gamer Culture

It’s no secret that game devs can be a little secretive about their projects. And it’s not always to create a mystery around the game, it can also be because being candid about it isn’t the best thing for them, thanks to the toxic culture in gaming. Charles Randall, a designer and programmer who has worked for Ubisoft and Bioware wrote a thread on Twitter which presents an interesting point of view: “The other day a friend commented to me “I wish game developers were more candid about development.” He was surprised when I said we are. The caveat is that we’re only candid with other industry people. Because gamer culture is so toxic that being candid in public is dangerous. See that recent twitter thread about game design tricks to make games better — filled with gam...

EA Disputes “Pay-to-Win” Criticism For Star Wars Battlefront II

The rise of loot boxes is a disturbing trend. Unfortunately, every major release is riddled with this disease, and for once, everyone is openly criticising it. EA’s upcoming Star Wars Battlefront II is no stranger to this criticism, with its randomized reward system that can actually have an impact on the gameplay. However, EA has responded to the feedback following the open beta, and have tried to explain how the loot system is supposed to work in the final release. Here’s what they wrote in a blog post explaining the changes they want to make: There are many things you can earn in the game, including weapons, attachments, credits, Star Cards, Emotes, Outfits and Victory Poses. As a balance goal, we’re working towards having the most powerful items in the game only earna...
