Unless you’ve been living under a Horta for the last week, you’ll have heard the incredibly tear-making news that Leonard Nimoy, the actor behind Mr. Spock, passed away on Friday. He’d had a good run though; 83 years-old, a successful actor, director, writer, poet and photographer, so we perhaps shouldn’t feel too sad. As Spock himself once said, “Change is the essential process of all life.” And what greater change can there be than death? Well, for certain nVidia customers, the change from 4 Gb of RAM to 3.5 Gb of RAM plus 500 mb running at a slightly different speed is [...]

Morning people. Neurotic here, covering for Neoheresy whilst he’s off on a business trip (read: doing blow and picking up hookers). It’s the start of a new week, and who knows what it will bring. If it’s anything like last week, it should be a good one. Well, except for Runescape player Josh Peters, who on Monday was ‘Swatted’ whilst livestreaming in front of 60,000 people. If you don’t know what that is, you’re lucky. But if you do, then you’ll know that it’s when idiots telephone the police and report terrible criminal doings at the address of someone livestreaming a game etc. [...]

Good evening, and here is the XP4T news with your host, Neoheresy. If you’re a Raptr user, make haste to the password change section of your profile as it may have been stolen, as disclosed by Raptr’s CEO. You may also want to mark Valentine’s Day in you calendars, but this time for gaming purposes, as this is exactly when the open beta launched for pedestrian-squashing classic revival, Carmageddon Reincarnation. At XP4T.com, we love it when gamers shows their talents to the world and make something spectacular with the games they they love. That’s why we were particularly happy to see that a group of avid Portal 2 [...]

16 years later: The Bard’s Tale IV announced Probably the biggest news of last week was the announcement that came on Saturday from inXile‘s CEO Brian Fargo. Ladies and gentlemen, the development of a new Bard’s Tale game is now a fact! Although information on the game so far is rather vague, Fargo confirmed that a Kickstarter campaign would launch soon to allow people to back the project, as happened with inXile’s Wasteland 2 and Torment: Tides of Numenara. In terms of gameplay, the new Bard’s Tale will be a continuation of the original series (which their mediocre 2004 multi-format/mobile effort was [...]

Quick, they’re getting away! GTA V PC slips to late March Sorry, folks, Christmas is cancell… GTA V is not coming to your PC on Jan 27th. Rockstar Games have announced that the game will now be coming to its natural home two months later than the previously established release date. The latest instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series will now be kicking down our doors on March 24th. And as much as it pains us to say so right now, it is quite comforting to see the R* folks being rather honest about the reasons for the postponement: “Our apologies for the slight shift [...]

Valve enforces regional lock on its entire catalogue in Russia As reported in the NeoGaf forums, Valve have activated a regional lock on all of Steam‘s catalog for the territory of Russia and the CIS. This comes as no surprise considering the extremely low game prices in Russia (in general) and the shitstorm Russian economy is facing after its currency drastically declined in value over the last week. What the regional lock essentially means is that if you buy a game on Steam – while being in Russia or any of the CIS countries – you won’t be able to [...]

Book some time off — HOMM3 HD to debut late next month News of the week, by a long mile. On January 29th, Ubisoft will release an HD version of one of the best strategy games ever made – Heroes of Might And Magic III.

Give the Dog an Xbone: New Street Fighter PC/PS4 Exclusive What started mid-week as a rumour (via a video leak) turned out to be true after all – Capcom are working on a new Street Fighter game. The acclaimed Japanese publisher has now confirmed that what the leaked teaser was showing is, in fact, for real. Even though the official trailer – released a day later and being just a slightly modified variant of the leaked video – does not indicate when the title will be released, one thing about it is very important. The teaser confirmed that the game will be a PC and PS4 exclusive, and will [...]

Beamdog confirm two new games in the works Beamdog have confirmed that they are indeed working on two new games, one of which will act as a bridge between Baldur’s Gate I and BGII. In a blog post released on Thursday, Amber Scott from Beamdog confirmed the developers are waist-deep in making two new games. One of them, going by the code name Adventure Y, will be an RPG set in Faerûn and will tell a story set between Baldur’s Gate I and II, using the classic Infinity Engine. The other game looks to be a product in a different genre than role [...]

Free DLC and (for some) a free Ubisoft game for Unity owners Ubisoft are doing their best to deal with the AC Unity post-release nightmare. “I want to sincerely apologize on behalf of Ubisoft and the entire Assassin’s Creed team. These problems took away from your enjoyment of the game, and kept many of you from experiencing the game at its fullest potential.” said Ubisoft Montreal CEO, Yannis Mallat. As a practical way of saying “sorry” to customers who had to deal with a buggy, glitchy game (to say the least), customers were promised a free DLC when its development is [...]
