GOG.com announces GOG.com Galaxy client

By Nicereddy on Jun 05 2014 06:55 PM
In today's GOG.com/CD Projekt RED Stream they announced a new client called "GOG.com Galaxy". They already have the GOG.com Downloader and a "client" which helps update the games you get from GOG, I believe this is just a rebranding of that client. Details are currently sparse, so if anyone has any more information please post it!


Uplay preventing players from launching Watch Dogs on PC

By Andytizer on May 27 2014 06:35 PM
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.


Facebook buys Oculus For $2 billion

By Andytizer on Mar 26 2014 03:55 PM
It's been nearly a day and it still hasn't quite sunk in for me. It's enormously disappointing that a crowdfunded independent company that was going to become the next step in PC gaming gets bought out by Facebook. Here from Zuckerberg himself:

Immersive gaming will be the first, and Oculus already has big plans here that won't be changing and we hope to accelerate. The Rift is highly anticipated by the gaming community, and there's a lot of interest from developers in building for this platform. We're going to focus on helping Oculus build out their product and develop partnerships to support more games. Oculus will continue operating independently within Facebook to achieve this.

But this is just the start. After games, we're going to make Oculus a platform for many other experiences. Imagine enjoying a court side seat at a game, studying in a classroom of students and teachers all over the world or consulting with a doctor face-to-face -- just by putting on goggles in your home.

What do people think? Is it the end for VR? Will new VR headsets be released to compete with the Oculus (providing that they don't infringe on their patents)? Or will VR and gaming become reinvigorated with this $2 billion cash infusion?


Bypass Humble Store regional price increase using PCGamingWiki's widget list

By Andytizer on Feb 19 2014 09:50 AM
Humble Store announced that regional pricing has now been introduced for Euro and British territories. Whilst this isn't a shock in itself (and something that Green Man Gaming implemented recently) it is surprising to see that prices mostly match Steam's regional pricing, which means that European and British users will be charged anything up to 30% more than what they used to pay under the US dollar pricing.
