Tom Clancy´s Rainbow Six Siege Pro League: 3rd place seed Playing Ducks vs gBots

Tom Clancy´s Rainbow Six Siege Pro League: 3rd place seed Playing Ducks vs gBots

The first match of the day was Playing Ducks facing off with gBots for the third and final spot in the Katowice LAN finals. This was something I anticipated to be a very precise and careful display of gameplay from both teams to secure the coveted spot on the plane to Poland. Both teams had suffered only one loss during the regular season which was actually to the teams facing off for the 1st and 2nd seed, Penta and Gifu later after the match covered in here. The same fate was waiting for them again in the playoffs with the [...]

Seven Days to Learn: Rainbow Six: Siege

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 [...]

Ubisoft Insta-Banning Cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft Insta-Banning Cheaters in Rainbow Six Siege

Previously, when players were caught cheating, they were given a warning and had a temporary ban for three days, that was up until the most recent 1.3 patch. According to the official forums in addition to a number of tweaks and optimizations, a number of anti-cheating improvements have been implemented. “All cheaters detected by the system will be banned permanently”. Ubisoft has been pretty hush-hush about their actual “anti-cheat” methods, which is probably for the best. The more information that potential hackers have on these game mechanics, the easier it would be to potentially exploit them. Of course, there will be [...]

CAN’T F*CKIN’ WAIT: Rainbow Six: Siege

The game uses Ubisoft’s AnvilNext game engine, and is the first game in theRainbow Six franchise since Rogue Spear not to use Epic’s UnrealEngine. It is considered to be the successor to Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6: Patriots, which was cancelled. Siege’s multiplayer is a 5-on-5 competitive game in which the terrorist team fortifies a defensible room which the Rainbow operative team then has to breach, with matches typically lasting just three minutes. Players who rescue hostages during hostage missions gain additional points, which encourages teams [...]

10 Fastballs: R6- Gifu Captain Interview

10 Fastballs: R6- Gifu Captain Interview

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege finals are played in Katowice Poland this weekend on 20-21 of May. We were able to poke the Gifu captain Niklas “Willkey” Ojalainen in the midst of preparations, and throw some fast ones with him. XP4T: For starters to warm up, how are you and how is the team? Willkey: I am just great. Keeping very busy. These few weeks before the finals are always a fine balancing act between work, the game and family. The atmosphere in the team is good and we are confident that this is our season to take the prize home [...]

Getting Funky with Uncle Spelunky

Getting Funky with Uncle Spelunky

Since re-playing Spelunky back in March, I’ve been on it extensively every day since. It’s a bit like Minecraft in that respect. You may only hit it from time to time, but when you do it’s probably for long, intensive bursts. I find it to be hugely addictive, partly because it taps into the simple, colourful pleasures of the arcades and the 16-bit era of my youth, and partly because the game is so beautifully and precisely polished mechanically. (In fact, Spelunky’s mastermind, Derek Yu, has written an entire book about its creation). But behind the simplicity and the chunky little [...]

Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider

Review: Rise of The Tomb Raider

I’ve been playing computer and video games for almost 40 years, and Tomb Raider games specifically for about half that time. Games and writing are my two things, and I’m lucky to be able to combine them in work that either pays money, or rewards me in other ways. One of those rewards – perhaps the best one – is the occasional game that comes along and actually does what all escapist fantasy has aspired to do, from Beowulf to The Force Awakens, and takes me on a journey. Most games are memorable and rewarding in all kinds of great [...]

Didya know about the Siege Spectator Mode?

Didya know about the Siege Spectator Mode?

LEARN FROM THE BEST…OR DIE LIKE THE REST Rainbow Six Siege offers players a new way to experience its tense counter-terrorist action. The Spectator Cam allows an 11th person to participate in the 5v5 multiplayer matches by giving them the chance to witness the action through two different camera options. With the traditional First-Person View, the spectator can see through the eyes of an individual player during a match, while the Tactical View lets them switch between following individual players automatically, or zooming out over the map to see everything that’s happening. You can get your first look at the [...]

PC Gaming in… 2006

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. But this time of year is often serendipitous for many of our schedules, so here we are again. Welcome back! At Christmas this year I had a cracker in which the motto read, ‘The road ahead is often illuminated by the [...]
