Telltale Releases Patch to Fix Batman Problems on PC

Telltale Releases Patch to Fix Batman Problems on PC

Telltale is aware of the performance issues people have been having in the PC version of its new Batman game, and has released a patch to remedy some of them. Some users on the game’s Steam discussion page have been complaining about poor frame rates, and Telltale believes many of these issues are due to people running the game on integrated graphics, or the result of outdated drivers. The new patch automatically defaults the game to run on dedicated graphics cards, and adds graphics settings to enable selection of higher performance textures, or higher quality textures, based on your hardware.

Judge Dismisses NBA 2K Tattoo Copyright Suit

Judge Dismisses NBA 2K Tattoo Copyright Suit

Take-Two Interactive has won the dismissal of a lawsuit over claims the NBA 2K series used copyrighted tattoos on its digital athletes without permission. The copyright breach, raised by Solid Oak Sketches, sought damages of up to $150,000 per infringement. That means, in theory, the total payout for every tattoo used without permission could be somewhere in the billions of dollars. Stars who Solid Oak Sketches claim to have inked include LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and a selection of other NBA players. While U.S. District Judge Laura Taylor Swain in Manhattan has dismissed the case, she says Solid Oak Sketches can still pursue actual damages (money awarded as compensation for loss of profit).

Rumor: Mario and Pokemon NX Games To Arrive Next Year

Rumor: Mario and Pokemon NX Games To Arrive Next Year

A new report claims the Nintendo NX will receive new Mario and Pokemon games, alongside The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild within six months of the console’s March 2017 launch. “Sources close to Nintendo” have reportedly told MCV that the company is hoping to avoid the slow start of its previous two consoles, Wii U and 3DS. Anecdotally, few of Nintendo’s major internal studios or second parties have shipped a major release since 2015, which could be seen to bear out such a rumor. MCV also claims that Nintendo has already garnered third-party support – another struggle for its consoles in recent years – from Sega, Square Enix, Ubisoft, Activision and Warner Bros.

11 Little Things We Learned from the Harry Potter Play

11 Little Things We Learned from the Harry Potter Play

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child debuted on the West End stage last week, at much the same time the play’s script was released as a hardback book. And we’ve been reading that script to find out what’s new in the Harry Potterverse. So the following are 11 of the most interesting facts we found. We’re avoiding spoilers for the show’s plot, feeling they should be experienced as you watch or read. But if you don’t want to know ANYTHING about what’s happened to Harry, Ron, Hermione and co. in the intervening years, maybe come back when you’ve checked out the Cursed Child. Which, incidentally, is REALLY good. Continue reading…

Hearthstone Card Reveal: The Awesome Power of Medivh

Hearthstone Card Reveal: The Awesome Power of Medivh

The next Hearthstone adventure is One Night in Karazhan, a fun, party-themed riff on one of World of Warcraft’s most iconic locations. It takes place when the most powerful mage in Azeroth, Medivh, was in his prime, and so too was his magical tower Karazhan. Things go awry, however – Medivh goes missing and his magic-imbued creations run amok. The new content will take place across four wings (the first one opens on August 11 in North America, the 12th elsewhere) and by the end you’ll have 45 new cards. We’ve seen about half of them at this point, but get ready to see a very special new one – Medivh himself! “Medivh, the Guardian” is a neutral legendary that costs eight mana and has a 7/7 body, but it’s the Battlecry “Equip Atiesh, Greatstaff of the Guardian” that shows Medivh’s true power. Atiesh, you see, is a weapon with one attack and three durability with the text “After you cast a spell, summon a random minion of that cost. Lose 1 durability.” Cool, huh? Continue reading…

Mr. Robot: "eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc" Review

Mr. Robot: "eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc" Review

Warning: Full spoilers for the episode below. While Season 2 still isn’t quite soaring — mostly due to its bloated, less compact/focused nature — the stakes were definitely raised in “eps2.3_logic-b0mb.hc.” Granted, the lighting didn’t quite strike until the final few minutes, but the attack on Dom and the FBI in China (we’ll assume it’s Dark Army related and sent by Whiterose) and the cool and calm world of Ray turning dark and brutal made for some great, shocking moments. Angela getting sucked back into the mix dragged a bit, but I was still happy to see her migrate into the central story after several episodes of indulging in her own Evil Corp adventures. Overall, I just feel like Season 1 did more with shorter, fewer scenes. But revisiting Elliot’s broken affections for Angela was a good way to pull him out of his cerebral rut while also reuniting the “key three” of the show. Continue reading…
