LivePlace renders virtual city ‘in the cloud’

If you visited LivePlace.com yesterday, you would have seen a video up that portrayed a virtual city called City Space that looked almost real. Now, this is nothing new for movie-style graphics, but it's definitely new for online gaming. Apparently the domain is owned by Brad Greenspan, co-founder of MySpace.com and the video portrays a game running on OTOY, a 3D graphics engine that renders "in the cloud."

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

OnePlus 2 vs Moto X Style – which one “potentially” deserves your money?

Last week we saw not one but two mid-year racehorses make their way into the smartphone tracks. One an established veteran in the industry, the other almost a David in comparison, both putting out mouthwatering offers. But at the end of the day, unless you have the money to spare, you will choose only one. Is the OnePlus 2 really worthy of all the hype the startup generated? Or was the Moto X Style able to repeat the magic of the original Moto X in 2014? Pending a full blown review, we do a spec and feature side-by-side to get a preliminary appraisal.

Twitch streamer banned after fake swatting stunt

Twitch streamer banned after fake swatting stunt

Swatting, the act of getting police and other law enforcement to force their way into someone's home after being told it's the location of hostage situation or other crime, is a despicable act that offenders usually refer to as a "prank." But just as unfunny is staging a fake swatting while livestreaming to an audience of thousands. That's what Trick2G, a popular streamer on the game broadcasting service Twitch, has found out after such an act has gotten his channel closed and himself banned.

Halo 5 gets a Ford F-150 to celebrate release at E3

The Xbox One release of Halo 5: Guardians will be celebrating with their very own unique Ford F-150 truck. This truck will be popping up first - in the real world - at E3 2015, starting next week. This Ford F-150 Halo Sandcat, as it's called, is a one-of-a-kind vehicle. It's inspired by the aesthetics of the Halo game's United Nations Space Command vehicle, and - unlike that vehicle - is prepared to roll through the real streets in the real world. While this truck isn't prepared for production at the moment, anything is possible.

Gleaning information from the Oculus Rift CV1 “leak”

Gleaning information from the Oculus Rift CV1 “leak”

This morning a set of images of the final version of the Oculus Rift consumer version (CV1) were leaked. While at first it appeared that these images were finalized photos of the headset set to be released next year and revealed in full tomorrow, Oculus founder Palmer Luckey took to Reddit to confirm the "placeholder" nature of the images. In short - they look radical, they look great, but they're not what you're going to be buying in 2016. They're close, but no cigar.

Leaked Oculus Rift pics are real, but ancient

It has just been hours since Oculus launched its countdown to a rebranding effort that will be announced at E3 this week, yet it seems that the virtual reality company is already having trouble keeping a lid on things. Dug from deep within the website, photos of what appears to be the long overdue consumer version of the Oculus Rift VR headset, along with some accessories, have been leaked on the Internet. But don't get too hyped over them, says Oculus, as they are very old placeholder images in reality.

Moto 360 successor leaked to have 360×360 resolution

After its initial bout of fame, the Moto 360 has seemingly faded into the background, especially with the arrival of some pretty strong contenders. That's not to say that the Moto 360 has become any less the smartwatch darling that it was, but Motorola does need to step up a bit if it wants to stay on top. A successor to that smartwatch might already be in the works, as "accidentally" leaked last month. Now a new leak has come up claiming that the next Moto 360 will have a higher resolution screen.

MediaTek catching up with Snapdragon 810 in benchmarks

Qualcomm's latest flagship chip, the Snapdragon 810, is already under a lot of pressure for certain issues, warranted or not. It could probably do with less problems but it seems that rival MediaTek won't let it catch a break. The latter's upcoming chip, a certain MT6795, is now said to be on par with the Snapdragon 810. That is, at least based on leaked benchmark scores. Whether that will be enough to catapult MediaTek to the forefront of the mobile chips race is another question entirely.

Target Australia bans GTA 5 due to violence against women

Target Australia bans GTA 5 due to violence against women

Target's Australian branch has taken a rather bold move that will most likely send ripples throughout the country's gaming community and advocacy groups. The retail chain, taking to heart majority of customer feedback, has decided to yank Grand Theft Auto 5 from their store shelves, not because of violence in general, which the game is already popular and notorious for, but specifically because of how women are portrayed and treated in the game. A well-timed move given the recent high-profile controversies regarding genders in games and gaming culture.
