The Wild Story Of Tie Fighter's Illegal 1994 Pirate Leak

Kotaku - Tue, 05/24/2016 - 23:30

Software piracy in 2016 is so ubiquitous that we expect games to leak ahead of release. Back in the 20th century, though, it was a lot harder for pirates to get hold of video games before they hit retail shelves. As evidenced by this crazy old story about how the classic TIE Fighter got out a week before its release in 1994.

Rocket League Gets Cross-network Play Between PC And Xbox One Today

Just Push Start - Tue, 05/24/2016 - 21:43
It’s an exciting day for fans that play Rocket League on PC and Xbox One. This is because cross-network play has been enabled which means more players will be online for you to play with and against. This is significant because Rocket League is the first Xbox One game to support cross-play with another platform. Microsoft was hesitant to support cross-play before, but now the company is more open to the idea. More Xbox One games are set to have cross-play in the near future. This is a good thing as this means the online community will be larger and you will encounter more players with varying skills.

Testament’s Chuck Billy covers rockabilly version of “Ace of Spades”

Metal Insider - Tue, 05/24/2016 - 21:03
At this point, it is very naive to assume every metal musician is only willing to do metal music and won’t have any other sort of affinity for a different style. As we’ve seen with former Morbid Angel’s frontman David Vincent who’s been rocking the stages in Texas with his new country band, it’s not […]
