Many were left wondering how long it would be before Microsoft finally listened to its customer and gave up on those very draconian, restrictive policies. That time is now.

Bad news everyone! Back in 1999 when The Simpsons began a long descent into crapville that it has still yet to surface from, he brought about Futurama. A fresh and clever show set in the future, it was ultimately too smart to remain on television. It’s been cancelled before, but it managed to revive itself. Pity that this time, it really is the end for that witty show. Again.

What a clusterfrig today has been. I was supposed to finally get my luggage back today. As was Geoff. And we did! Except I got Geoff’s, and Geoff got mine. Faith in aviation industry, restored.
Neither Microsoft nor Sony’s next generation console is here yet. From what we’ve heard, we expect Sony’s PlayStation 4 to release locally around November this year, with Microsoft’s Xbox One coming a little later next year. If you want either of them close to their respective releases dates, you might want to look at pre-ordering.
Call of Duty 4 has survived for years as the biggest competitive title in the Do Gaming League. It even outlived its would-be successors Modern Warfare 2 and 3. Black Ops 2 has however become the new FPS king of the league, begging the question: Should Call of Duty 4 be dropped from the competitive roster?
It's still at a rumor phase, so we'll have to wait and see. However, some code buried in the latest Steam client beta shows something called a "shared game library". If it's true, it would be mighty cool - can lend games through Steam, not just via disc.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: 2011’s Mortal Kombat is one of the finest fighting games ever made. And now, it’s a fighting game that will be on PC as well. So is your rig ready to run a one on one fight to the death? Or is it a fatality for your processor? Hit the jump to find out if it’ll test your PC might.
Brushing off the Wii U's issues as merely a "slow start", Martin Tremblay (president of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment) said that WB is still confident in the Wii U.
One of the biggest surprises from Microsoft’s E3 conference was the announcement that Capcom’s Dead Rising 3 was coming to the Xbox One – and that it would be a platform exclusive. Not one of those “timed” ones either, because Microsoft’s doing publishing duties. It’s a good lock for Microsoft, because of all the Xbox One games I saw, this is the one that’ll make me get the system.
There comes a time in most gamers’ lives when you welcome a newborn baby into the family. Naturally as a parent, you think that you’ll have to put gaming on the backburner. Well, you don’t.
One of the very coolest things about the next generation of sports titles from EA is the ignite engine, which attempts to make in-game players behave more like real-life athletes, reacting to a living world. It’s really quite impressive stuff. Unfortunately, as we’ve already told you, the PC versions of these games will not be powered by said Ignite engine, and will be relatively lifeless as a result. Why? According to EA sports head Andrew Wilson, it’s because your PC’s just aren’t powerful enough.
While every one’s been caught up in the next-gen console war, there’s one platform that remains free from the fray. That’s right, the master race are winners once again as CD Projekt RED’s CEO Marcin Iwinski assures Rock Paper Shotgun that The Witcher 3 will release DRM –free on GOG on day one.
It was bound to happen – and just as we speculated, it seems that games headed for next-gen systems would find their PC counterparts running better on AMD hardware. That’s exactly what’ll be happening with one of the biggest games coming for the launch of the next generation of consoles – Battlefield 4.
