    Players looking forward to experiencing Watch Dogs on PC on launch day will be disappointed to find that it's currently impossible to login to the game at all.

     

    Uplay is required to launch the game, and those currently attempting to connect will be faced with the above "Login failed" screen as Uplay authentication servers are being hammered by the usual launch day problems.

  17. Redditor helps a quadriplegic gamer play SimCity

    External URL: http://www.dailydot.com/lifestyle/reddit-simcity-quadriplegic-gamer/

    Sometimes the only barrier to playing a PC game is as simple finding "the right file in the wrong place..." (from our amusing slogans thread) and moving/deleting/burning it with fire, or finding some obscure patch or community fix. For gamers who are disabled, these problems can feel insurmountable, which is why I always like seeing a story where one gamer uses their PC game fixing skills to help others:

     

    Redditor joey6957 had a problem playing SimCity:

    When you put a road on the map you use the mouse clicker & hold it while determining where to put the road & at the same time you press the N key or M key to lower or raise the the road. When i lay a road down i use my Quadjoy which the device only allows you to do '1 thing at a time.' In other words I cant press the N key or M key on the on screen keyboard while laying a road.

  20. Other Places: new video series about game locations

    External URL: http://www.youtube.com/user/ultrabrilliant

    Other Places is a set of amazing videos of game locations with terrific production values and great use of music. These striking and hauntingly beautiful videos produced by @ultrabrilliant, a British games journalist. Obviously created on PC, most likely using various tools to hide the interface and clip through the world to find the most interesting and evocative shots. I wonder what the general techniques are for this kind of video capture? Here's a sample:
