Fallout 4’s Creation Kit is live on PC, coming later to Xbox One and PS4

Despite not having the official tools from Bethesda, they've found ways to add full dialogue options, lightsabers, and much more. If you thought there were a lot of mods before, then prepare yourself for a whole new level of modding.

Uncharted 4 copies hijacked in transit, Sony warns against leaked spoilers

Uncharted 4 copies hijacked in transit, Sony warns against leaked spoilers

Yesterday should have been the release date for Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (well, one of the release dates, at least). However, last month, Sony announced that it would be delayed until May 10th. This naturally upset many fans, some were so upset that they pulled off a heist to steal copies of the game while they were in transit to retailers.

Rock Band 4 gets online multiplayer, ION Drum Kit adapter for Xbox One

Rock Band 4 gets online multiplayer, ION Drum Kit adapter for Xbox One

After the disappointment of Harmonix's efforts to crowdfund a PC version of Rock Band 4, you'd think that we wouldn't hear much about the game for a little while. That turned out to be far from the truth at PAX this past weekend. The developer laid out a roadmap of future plans for the game, and there's quite a bit to see.

Starting in May, we'll see the ability to plug in a second kick pedal on the standard drum kits. That means you'll finally be able to nail some of those brutal kicks (but you'll still never be Neil Peart). They're also planning on releasing a couple of Battleborn characters for the game. You'll be able to add Miko and Thorn as members of your band, if you need a little variety in your lineup.

June will bring Practice Mode back to the franchise. This mode lets you pick out specific sections of a song, slow them down, and really practice them. This was a favorite feature of mine in earlier Rock Band games, as I enjoyed figuring out those solos and such at my own pace, before unleashing them on my friends while we were jamming.

Sometime in the Fall, Harmonix will be releasing their first expansion pack for the game. They're not planning on talking about it much until E3, but they're planning on releasing a bunch of new features in the expansion, including better ways to filter your enormous libraries.

Fall will also bring the one feature that has held me back from purchasing Rock Band 4. I was pretty dedicated to drumming in the early Rock Band games, and picked up the ION Rocker drum kit, which is a semi-professional drum kit that was designed specifically for Rock Band. Unfortunately, since it was designed for the Xbox 360, and Microsoft doesn't allow the use of 360 peripherals on the Xbox One, ION kit owners have not been able to use their favorite drum kit.

Harmonix is teaming up with PDP to release a special adapter that will let drummers like myself use their kit on the Xbox One.

The final announcement was that the team is hard at work on online multiplayer capabilities for the game. While I prefer to rock out with my friends in person, it's not always easy to get everyone together. Sometime toward the end of the year, we should expect the ability to play with our friends, regardless of where they are.

Ubisoft patches two major exploits in The Division

Ubisoft patches two major exploits in The Division

With the first round of content for Tom Clancy's: The Division, Ubisoft had to work on some balancing issues. This was mostly centered around the game's crafting, and ended up making it a lot harder to craft weapons and other gear. Considering how easy it was to craft the best stuff, it wasn't too surprising. Of course, that was the least of their problems, and they released a patch today to address two other major issues with the game.

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst delayed until June

Mirror’s Edge Catalyst delayed until June

If you're looking forward to Mirror's Edge Catalyst, then you're probably pretty excited for this weekend. The closed beta will begin tomorrow, and will last for five days. Unfortunately, while some people may be playing the game as early as this weekend, everyone is going to have to wait a bit longer for the game's full launch.

Today the game's Design Director Erik Odeldahl announced that the game would be receiving another delay. This is the second time that the game has been delayed. The game was originally slated to be released in February, and was pushed back until May 24th. Thankfully this delay isn't quite as long.

The game is now set to be released to the public on June 7th here in the US. I'm not quite sure just how much work can be done in those extra two weeks, but EA feels that it will be necessary, in order to address player feedback from this weekend's upcoming closed beta.

No one is ever excited to hear that a game has been delayed, but I really don't mind. Sure, I'll have to wait a bit longer. However, I'm of the mind that a delayed game is far better than a buggy launch.

“Playstation 4.5” codenamed NEO, hardware specs leak

“Playstation 4.5” codenamed NEO, hardware specs leak

So it seems that Sony is indeed prepping an minor update to the PlayStation 4, but it won't be as dramatic, sensational, or even significant as others perhaps hope it would be. Sure, there will be CPU, GPU, and even RAM upgrades but they could be very minor in the long run. And yes, there will be 4K support, but this half next gen PS4 won't be making it a key focus. And no, it might not even be a refresh aimed at better support PlayStation VR, though the added muscle definitely helps.

Street Fighter V’s next patch will permanently address rage quitters

Street Fighter V’s next patch will permanently address rage quitters

Capcom released Street Fighter V back in February, and almost immediately a problem developed with rage quitters, or players who quit matches early — often because they're losing — instead of seeing things through to the end. A partial fix was detailed in March, which has seen the developer manually punish players who are detected to have high disconnection rates, but they also promised a more permanent solution in the future.
