Fallout 3: Can You RUN It?

50°
306w ago - Recently Bethesda released the requirements for the PC version of Fallout 3 which is scheduled to release this October 28th. I have to admit that the requirements are pretty forgiving, and won't cost one of your limbs.

Some people though are too lazy to check the requirements against their own machine or even at times they have no clue what kind of PC they own. Heck I know some people who think Hotmail, and the Internet are the same thing.

One of my favorite tools to use is SystemRequirmentLab's Can You RUN It? The application will ease the process of determining if your PC can run a specific game.

All you got to do is select the game, and bam! It does all the work for you. Recently they have uploaded Fallout 3, and you can now see or get confirmation if you have already manually determined, to see if your computer is ready to face post apocalyptic creatures!

The Fallout from Fallout 3's Piracy

200°
306w ago - The eagerly anticipated Fallout 3 is nearly upon us, yet a full three weeks before its release rapacious pigs cracked the game and offered it via various torrent sites.

This is the third AAA title that has been hacked and cracked in as many months, leaving publishers frothing at the mouth as they consider even more draconian digital rights management.

To the casual observer this may seem like an overzealous response to retain the vast sea of greenbacks the industry seems to float upon. And that certainly is a concern, after all Electronic Arts is not motivated from a position of altruism. This is about control of their product, control of their intellectual property, and control of the consumer.

Flinchingly I have read DRM proponents scathing insinuation that, and I'm paraphrasing, that "nothing is safe! Nothing is sacred! We must protect ourselves at any cost!" Yet the price of that protectionism is at the expense of the consumer. Pirates care little for the mores of the videogame industry. However it's not the pirates that are feeling the brunt of the industry's wrath, it's us.

Citing piracy concerns, EA slapped DRM restrictions on Spore that prohibited more than one installation per copy, turning it into a $60 rental. Yet that did not keep Spore from being cracked...

306w ago - According to Al de Leon at the PlayStation Blog, the PS3 already has the ability to capture videos and upload them to YouTube, its up to the Dev's to implement it.

This is a comment's reply made by Al de Leon on the feature:

"This firmware update applies to screenshots only. The PS3 already has the capability to capture videos and upload them to YouTube.

Developers are starting to incorporate this into their games, such as PixelJunk Eden."
