XBox One Controller 1

XBox One Controllers Now Work on The PC

If you have an XBox One, then there is some really good news for you. As of today, Microsoft has officially released their own drivers/software for the XBox One controller. You will be able to download and install the drivers, connecting your XBox One controller to the PC and just like that you will be able to play your favourite PC games with the XBox One controller. At this time, we’ve not been able to confirm if any other third party XBox One controllers (like the Mad Catz Killer Instinct FightStick TE2) will also work with these drivers. However, if anyone has been able to test a third party XBox One controller, please leave a comment below. Personally, this is a move that I predicted ever since I first heard that Microsoft were working on the XBox One. I predicted that the controller would be compatible with the...

Batman Arkham Knight 0

Warner Bros Interactive and DC Release Batman: Arkham Knight Footage

We are really close to E3. A lot of the game developers are getting early builds(pre-release versions) of their games ready to show off. As such, the folks at Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment have officially unveiled the first video of the Batmobile transforming into battle mode in Batman: Arkham Knight. When transformed, the Batmobile has some serious weapons in there including a 60mm cannon(which I presume is cable of causing some serious carnage).   Having seen the video for myself, this car looks like one tough killing machine in Battle Mode.  From what little footage we have to work with, we can see that there is going to be various situations that the weapons could come in handy. For instance, let’s say that you need to take down a lot of bad guys at once then you could do so with the gun. The 60mm...

The first ever deathmatch in the new unreal tournament 0

Epic Games Releases The First Gameplay Footage For The New Unreal Tournament

The folks at Epic Games have been hard at work and now, they have finally put together a YouTube video. In it, they show off the very first deathmatch in the new version of Unreal Tournament. As you can see it is a very early version of the game. However, it’s enough to give you a glimpse of all the basic mechanics. At the time of publishing, I have just watched it and impressed with how good this looks already.  In the video, we got an early glimpse of the Weapon system in the new game, we also got a look at how moving around works.  Additionally, we saw a very early test map being used with a bunch of greyscale cubes and a greyscale map. Again, this was a really early version of the game that we are looking at here. However, if this is anything to...

Gaijin Confirms the Release Date for War Thunder on PlayStation 4

The folks at Gaijin Entertainment have confirmed that the PlayStation4 version of War Thunder is going to be available for download on 3rd June 2014 in the USA. Those of you in Europe can get it now. Just like the PC version, the PlayStation 4 version will also be a free-to-play game. On top of that, those of you on the PS4 will also be able to pick up the Ground Forces expansion. This is an expansion pack which adds tanks into the game. In a future addition to the PS4 and PC versions, War Thunder will have cross platform compatibility so that those on PS4 can play online with those on the PC. I have not played War Thunder before. However I have definitely seen enough game play footage and enough screenshots to say that this is a game that looks really exciting. I have always been...

Battlefield 3 is On The House 0

Free Game Alert: Battlefield 3 Goes Free on PC

Some of you might already know about EA’s “On The House” promotion. This allows you to download full version PC games for free. Now we’re not talking about any rubbish ones, we are talking about some good ones. Previously, they’ve made Dead Space free and they currently have Plants vs Zombies available for free until 16th June 2014(at the time of publishing).  However, the folks at Origin have made Battlefield 3: Standard Edition free. Again, it’s the full version of Battlefield 3 for PC. Battlefield 3 will be On The House until 6th June 2014, so I would highly recommend downloading it for free as soon as you can. I am so excited that they’ve made this game free. I only played the original Battlefield back when it was released. But now I am so glad that this Battlefield 3 is available for free. I am always looking...

Knotable Organizes Email for Collaboration – Disrupt 2014

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSWe all get the email threads: Someone gets praise or lands a new job and 50 replies of “Congratulations!” follow in the email. What if you were to export that thread to an area where people can collaborate and clean up the posts? That is what Knotable is all about. Created for those in email groups that need to collaborate better, Knotable (pr. note-able) will take over the thread, clear out the repetitive nonsense and previous replies, then set your post into the queue. Others can then vote it up and down or it can even get removed if a post is not accepted. The idea is to move the important parts to the top. In video collaboration (for example) you can have the popular remarks toward the top so the final product includes those. It also avoids two people asking the same question....

AirSig Password Wallet: Write in the Air to Authenticate, Open apps

Podcast: EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | RSSWhen I pull out my phone I have to run the unlock code, find the app I want and open it up. AirSig has a better idea – Press a button and write Facebook in the air to open Facebook up. Air signature to even unlock the phone. Stating that everyone has a different writing style, AirSign uses the accelerometer to map out your writing style. After all – you sign your name different than others do. If the phone recognizes your signature then it can open up. Here is how it works – the user holds the phone similar to a pen. They push a button and air-write their name to unlock the phone. Different commands could open different apps. If you write Twitter in the air it will open up the social network. I got to see how it not only opened...
