Microsoft: Sorry, PC gamers, no Halo 5 for you

Microsoft: Sorry, PC gamers, no Halo 5 for you

As one of the Xbox One's biggest exclusives, Halo 5: Guardians has been available since October. However, being a Microsoft-owned franchise, each subsequent release is met with the question of whether a PC port will eventually be made available. Halo 5 has been no exception, with franchise director Frank O'Connor stating back at release that there was a possibility the console game could come to the PC. It seems those plans, if there were any, have been squashed.

The Division cheaters will now get banned on the first offence

Ubisoft has had a bit of a problem on their hands with The Division. Well, there are a number of issues that I could talk about, but perhaps one of the worst is the rampant cheating issues that have existed since the game was released. And nothing kills an online game faster than opponents that you simply can't defeat, because they're using cheats and exploits to aid them.

A lot of Xbox One fans were excited by that prospect. If you were one of the folks excited about a DVR, you will not be happy to hear that Microsoft has now cancelled those plans.

Eidos, Razer, Open Bionics to make Deus Ex augmentations real

Eidos, Razer, Open Bionics to make Deus Ex augmentations real

There is an oft quoted (or misquoted) line about how life imitates art more than the other way around. In some cases, when art is expressed in a fantasy, futuristic form, that is almost impossible. Three different but connected companies, however, are going to team up and bring their unique specializations together to make life indeed imitate art. In this case, that means bringing the robotic, augmented limbs depicted in the Deus Ex game franchise to reality. Which may or may not be a smart idea, depending on which side of the transhumanism debate you stand on.

Square Enix definitely has a new-found obsession for turning its franchises into "turn-based puzzle games", a.k.a. board games. Perhaps emboldened by the success of Hitman GO and Lara Croft GO, the game publisher is giving the same treatment to another major title: Deus Ex. Capitalizing on the upcoming launch of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided, Deus Ex GO will cater to mobile gamers who might not have that much time or resources for a full on Deus Ex game but still want to be immersed in the fictional cyberpunk universe of the game.
