When someone achieves success, there will definitely be one that wants money from you. Just because has the power. In the gaming world, this “someone” are often the Australian officials, who for many years was famous for a mass of odious prohibitions or restrictions placed on certain video games.
This time they do not hit the shooter Fortnite, which in Australia is called “game harmful to your children.” According to local legislators, Fortnite free and deceptively positive, although it is actually extremely violent, and exciting in children bad thoughts.
In local social networks immediately appeared a bunch of jokes and memes supporting bureaucratic initiative in the sense that children should really prohibit to play Fortnite, because they are killed immediately after landing because of what they are experiencing very unpleasant emotions.
It is noteworthy that, for example, PUBG, the Australians don’t have any complaints, despite the fact that this game is more violent than Fortnite. Look at the free status of the latter.
A very interesting report published by the European analytical company MUSO that for many months he studied the issue of piracy, and I must say that the report’s conclusions are unambiguous: the pirates raise their head.
In particular, at the end of last year, it was downloaded 1.6% more pirated content than in the year before. Moreover, it concerns not only video games, but audio and video products. For example, the music began to illegally download almost 15% more. But the funny part is that a major country-a pirate’s been recognized – who do you think? – The United States. The share of Americans had to 27.9 billion visits to sites with pirated content. In second place Russia-Mother, to whose hard share fell to 20.6 billion. Followed by India, Brazil, Turkey, Japan, France, Indonesia, Britain and Germany. Strange, but China was not included in the list of leaders. Perhaps because the Chinese Internet is complicated, and it is simply not studied.
And last year, the German Parliament presented an analytical report, in accordance with the conclusions of which was that the great demand for video games on pirate websites, the more often they are bought officially. In other words, piracy was a positive commercial factor.
The web was a rumor that Konami is planning the return of Silent Hill. Anyway, this brand was registered as a company in the USA.
Further opinions are divided. Pessimists believe that the Japanese want to sweep America slot machines Pachinko is a cross between pin ball and the so-called “one-Armed Jack”. Supposedly Konami is preparing such machines in the atmosphere of the different game universes, including Silent Hill.
Optimists believe that the application filed in the Patent Office of the United States – evidence of a restart of the series, which really had given up. In favor of this version is evidenced by the fact that the application was filed by Konami Digital Entertainment, which develops video games, not Konami Gaming, which mainly supervises the slot machines.
Silent Hill rested in the Lord after the dismissal of Hideo Kojima, who demanded from Konami as much money as stingy, the Japanese could not give. In the end, Silent Hills – the last part of the series – was closed, despite the fact that already had a playable, interactive trailer, and kojima himself has gone to Sony.
Microsoft business selling video games is not very good. Not only that, many games are low quality, and subject to the limitations in the form of, for example, refusal of release on Steam. And so, somehow to improve the gaming business, Microsoft has decided to take the game to rent.
This is something new. Perhaps someday the day will come, when games can be changed, or put on sale through the official services. But rent is the same thing. For example, official representative of Xbox in Brazil already offers to rent Forza Motorsport 7 3 months for $ 21.
It is believed that if games such as Far Cry 5 will allow you to rent for the same period for the same money, the idea of the shot, but most likely this will not happen, and for rent will offer something that is already pretty down on the shelves.
In Microsoft on this matter is still no any official statements, and Brazil for the company, it seems, acts as a testing ground. If the idea will justify itself, might be a similar service will come to Russia.
The Network posted a global test Far Cry 5 on different computer hardware, and I must say that after a study it became clear that this game is extremely well optimized and runs at Ultra mode even on computers 3-4 years ago.
For example, an Ulta, a GTX 770 and 1050 were given 30-35 FPS, which is quite good. GTX 970 could provide a quite comfortable 60 frames per second and the GTX 1060 more – 70-75 FPS. Naturally, the more powerful hardware this game just flying, providing about 80-100 fps and it is raised at the maximum graphics settings. Very commendable, especially in view of the fact that Far Cry 5 really looks noticeably better than their predecessors.
In the end, we can safely say that Ubisoft could release a really popular shooter that will run even on severely outdated computers (after all, settings you can seriously cut what frame rate will soar to heaven.”
Obsidian has released a trailer for Pillars of Eternity III: Deadfire. The developers have recalled the main features of the sequel.

Pretty ridiculous rumor came from the camp of Ubisoft, whose employee, a certain Pierre, reported that The Division 2 is a continuation not a simple Apocalypse and zombie Apocalypse.
Supposedly, the developers now are working on several battle modes, including the mode of shooting zombies. To the question – how do zombies come from? – it was said – of the campaign.
It was also added that the game will present before the end of the year that she is going to need constant Internet connection, what her world really is huge, and that it may be its own Battle Royale.
It is possible that this rumor is not worth a damn, but if you will see before E3 that Ubisoft is preparing, some kind of game in which zombies don’t be surprised, because it is likely The Division 2.
The Division 2 – continuation of the first part, not yet revealed officially, but the press it became known that the game has five divisions of Ubisoft, and that she invested a lot of money. The new Division, he says, promises to be the most expensive game in the history of the company.
