Alongside new weaponry, vehicles and clothing options, High Life adds additional high-end apartments to the multiplayer world of [i]GTA Online[/i]. If you already own a virtual base of operations, don't worry: The High Life update also introduces multiple property ownership. Granted, this only expands the number of possible properties a player can own to two, but that's still a 100 percent improvement over the previous system, and should save players a lot of time that would otherwise be spent driving across town to their sole safehouse.

[b][i]Gives us a beautiful glimpse of gaming in the future:[/i][/b] [img]http://www.extremetech.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/8k-crysis-downsize-640x353.jpg[/img] You know how your computer struggles to run Crysis 3 at 1920×1080 at very high detail? And you know how beautiful it looks, even at that humdrum resolution? Well, now an enthusiast called K-putt has used a hacked Crysis 3 executable to run the game at 8K — and I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that the resultant screenshots are probably the most beautiful examples of real-time computer-generated graphics that I’ve ever seen. Crysis 3 at 8K looks so good that you could be mistaken for thinking that these screenshots are hand-drawn concept art — but in fact they’re straight out of the engine. Don’t get your hopes up for 8K gaming any time soon, though: K-putt has a pretty beefy gaming rig, and yet it could only muster 2 fps when running at 8K resolution. As you’re probably well aware, ever since Crysis was first released i
Out at the end of May, Ubisoft's dark thriller is set in a world where everyone's data is available to warring tech factions In Watch Dogs, every smartphone can be hacked, giving players access to the personal information of other characters – but it's all based on real-life scenarios Most of the time, game protagonists occupy worlds that are utterly fantastical, bearing little resemblance to our own reality. From the space marines of Halo to the artifact-grabbing archeologists of Tomb Raider and Uncharted, our exploits in games are as relatable as blockbuster popcorn cinema. It is all about escapism. But when a game’s world and the activities of its protagonist start to look like something out of everyday life, it can be unnerving. Owing to the agency conferred on us in this interactive medium, blurring the lines between fantasy and reality can make us feel complicit in the acts we carry out on screen. After all, in video games we often operate by a moral code

Danish government creates entire country in Minecraft, users promptly blow it up and plant American flag
The Danish Geodata Agency recently recreated the entire country of Denmark in Minecraft at a 1:1 scale. It’s one of the biggest Minecraft creations ever, made up of about 4000 billion brick and 1 terabyte of data. It was ingeniously built using the agency’s 3D elevation model and was meant to be used as a teaching tool. Of course, players almost immediately began blowing it up. They weren’t supposed to be able to. The Danish Geodata Agency, disabled the ability to use dynamite, but neglected to disable the minecart with dynamite item. According to [url=http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/05/01/denmark_dynamited_by_cunning_american_minecraft_vandals/]The Register[/url], players discovered this, set off explosives in several Danish towns, and built American tanks and flags on top of the ruins.

Microsoft has announced that the WWE Network app is now available to download for its latest game console. The app allows users to access thousands of hours of both archive and new video programming from World Wrestling Entertainment [url=http://news.xbox.com/2014/04/ent-wwe-xbox-one]for the price of $9.99 a month[/url], with a six month subscription required. That cost is in addition to Microsoft's own requirement of an Xbox Live Gold subscription, which is needed to access all of the Xbox One's media apps.

On Saturday, Microsoft, a documentary film crew, and some big excavation machines proved that Atari [url=http://www.neowin.net/news/microsoft039s-atari-039et039-landfill-excavation-event-successful-game-cartridges-found]had indeed buried unsold "E.T." 2600 game cartridges[/url] in a New Mexico landfill during 1983, along with other titles from that classic console. Now, Microsoft has posted up a brief video clip on YouTube that shows the highlights from the event in Alamogordo. The video is hosted by [url=https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8jHpOsJQaHM]Microsoft's Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb[/url] and shows the heavy machinery that was brought in to excavate the landfill. It also features brief chats with many people involved in the documentary of the Atari "E.T." game including director Zak Penn. The last part of the video shows the first copies of the game that were found in the landfill, which confirmed what
Anyone who has been playing games on the PC for a while has likely gotten used to [url=http://arstechnica.com/gaming/2007/04/pc-gaming-the-rumors-of-its-death-are-highly-exaggerated/]regular, overblown pronouncements[/url] that computer gaming is on the verge of dying in the face of cheaper, easier-to-use console competition. Gamers weary of rebuffing those charges should take heart from recent statements from DFC Intelligence analyst David Cole that PC gaming is far from dying—and it's actually outperforming the console sector overall these days. In statements [url=http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/read/pc-games-have-surpassed-console-games-globally/033849]reported by UK tech site PCR[/url], Cole said that PC games were bringing in more revenue than console games on a global basis, though he added that the recent launch of new game consoles could change things in the near future.

PC game revenues have passed console games, but the release of the PS4 and Xbox One should help keep a comparable revenue stream. [i]"Among core gamers there is a heavy overlap with most console gamers also playing on a PC. The big difference is that consoles are now the luxury item and PCs are the necessity. Just a few years ago the reverse was true. This means PCs have the broader audience."[/i] [i] [/i] [url=http://www.pcr-online.biz/news/read/pc-games-have-surpassed-console-games-globally/033849][i]Full article[/i][/url] [img]https://d1qy7qyune0vt1.cloudfront.net/webroot-en/attachment/10222iBDBC1F311F81A7DD.png[/img]
