Interview with a Cheat (Developer)

Interview with a Cheat (Developer)

If you’ve been playing video games for more than a week, you’re sure to have run into a cheater or two. We wanted to get in the head of a cheater/hacker so we reached out to a pretty famous one who happens to run a “game cheating” website which sells these hacks. He chose to remain anonymous, so for the rest of the interview, we’re going to refer to him simply as “L3p3r“. XP4T: How long have you been hacking and how did you get started with hacking? L3p3r: I have been making cheats for games since somewhere in the Read more ---

X-COM 2 Survival Tips

Whether you’re a seasoned Commander, or an aspiring recruit, these tips and suggestions will help to improve the longevity of your team and maybe, just maybe give you the upper hand.

Xcom is all about managing probabilities and taking RNG into account, but no matter how good cover you find, how resistant armour you equip, the laws of probability dictate that at some point you WILL get hit.

Seven Days to Learn: Rainbow Six: Siege

So, there is a new addiction going on in the group … It’s called Rainbow Six: Siege. Seriously, everyone is going a bit crazy, as you can see here, here, and here – and basically everywhere if you have been following us for the last couple of weeks. And of course I was too cheap to get the game on release so I started about six weeks after everyone already familiarized themselves with it. Since you seemed to enjoy the diary style I did a couple of years ago I’ll just take notes about the first seven (spoiler alert: It’s Read more ---

Greetings, XP4Ts. You may have noticed that the XP4T blog here is back in business, which I hope is as happy news for you as it is for us. As you may or may not know, we all work in the industry ourselves, so time is a somewhat limited resource and the site sometimes goes on an unannounced hiatus for a while.

The Death of Co-Op?

The Death of Co-Op?

Over the years we’ve seen cooperative elements in video games evolve and even transcend our wildest dreams. There is no doubt that this trajectory will continue, and gamers will be astounded time and time again with rich co-op features and ever elaborate game play modes. For clarification: cooperative games are in and of themselves not going anywhere anytime soon, but rather we as gamers will be hard-pressed to actually enjoy cooperative games with friends simply due to the over-saturation of the co-op market. Back in the day there were only a hand-full of games that were truly co-op games in Read more ---
