Fallout 3 Patch Causing Saved Game Problems for PlayStation 3

50°
315w ago - Although the Fallout 3 1.10 patch fixes a larger number of bugs and glitches, reports have been coming into us from gamers (as well as the [Register or Login to view links]) that it's also introduced some new problems, most commonly on the PS3 console.

After applying the patch, some players' saved games have been reported to be missing items - including but not limited to keys for important locations, on random occasions. Furthermore, some gamers have noticed that the game has an increased chance of freezing after loading an area.

There also appears to be some problems with using old save files on the PS3 from before the patch on very rare occasions, In some rare instances, the old save files will not allow the player to save nor auto-save, because the start screen has the "Save" option darkened after the patch is applied, making it impossible to save with the old save files.

Thankfully, this only seem to occur with saved files before the patch, and infrequently. So far, there is no known fix other than deleting the patch from the "Game Data Utility" and starting the game without installing the patch.

We'll inform you if/when when a proper fix becomes available!
 

US Gamer Kills Mother and Injures Dad Over Halo 3 Addiction

315w ago - A US teenager killed his mother and wounded his father in revenge after they took away his violent computer game, a judge has ruled.

The defence team for Daniel Petric, 17, had argued his addiction to the Halo 3 game, in which players shoot invading aliens, had made him insane.

But the judge rejected this, saying he had planned revenge for weeks. Petric, of Ohio, was tried as an adult and faces a maximum possible penalty of life in prison without parole.

On the night of the shooting in October 2007, Petric used his father's key to open a lockbox and remove a 9mm handgun and the game, the court heard.

His father Mark, who was shot in the head and survived, testified that his son came into the room and asked: "Would you guys close your eyes? I have a surprise for you."

He said he expected a pleasant surprise. Then his head went numb from the gunshot.

The Associated Press news agency reports that Microsoft, which owns the intellectual property for the game, declined to comment beyond a statement saying: "We are aware of the situation and it is a tragic case."

Killzone 2 is a Powerful Contender for Best Game of 2009

250°
316w ago - Killzone 2 has been hyped up for years now. It has reached that state where a game is so hyped that it is nearly impossible for it to live up to the expectations.

Few games that have reached this state have lived up to the hype given to them. For most games, the hype is so high that they get buried under it (Too Human). So what will happen to Killzone 2?

Well if early talk about Killzone 2 is to be believed, it will exceed the mountainous hype it currently has.

Although it's not the most trustworthy source (not only because its name, but also because it had the first review), PlayStation: The Official Magazine gave Killzone 2 a perfect score in its February issue. The review said:

It's true that Killzone 2 is filled with moments that can handily be described as inspiring awe. Each scene is incredibly well detailed, from the gaps in jerry-rigged cover points letting you sneak in a killing headshot to scarred and scratched textures, the planet feels entirely believable... Without a doubt Killzone fans, action and shooter fans of any stripe will instantly tag this sequel as a powerful contender for best game of 2009.
