Battlefield 4 Isn’t Over Yet.. Final Stand was Just the tip of the Iceberg.. But are Gamers Ready??

Battlefield-4-Wallpaper

Yes the title does read correctly, EA is planning more for Battlefield 4. But what does that mean exactly? More guns, maps, camo, gadgets, paints, *gasp* KNIVES!! Well we don’t know specifically yet what all is to come. But EA has stated that Final Stand will not be the Final DLC for Battlefield 4. Now this game had a rough start I will admit. I was anxious for them to fix the servers, get the DLC out, and everything else upon launch especially fixing the Net-code. Hell I even got premium. At the start it didn’t seem worth it, Every time I got killed in 1 bullet w/o a head-shot, or every time I had to restart (A.K.A Re-Set up my classes, options, etc..)And even before they fixed it I knew I was playing a broken game as much as I denied it all, and I still played it too, but it was still broke.

Many gave up on this game, and many stopped playing EA games all together which may be a bit far fetched but it had that impact, and I can kind of understand why. With technology ever increasing,  gamers and many more rely on companies to give us what we want and what is advertised, not broken Net-Code or glitchy servers. And sometimes that is what we get anyway. But it is from those high expectations from gamers that we truly see what a company is made of. It took time but EA did finally fix a lot of issues pertaining to BF4, Some issues still exist but it won’t ever be a perfect game I can tell you that right now, because where ever comes a fix for a game,  a new glitch/bug will arise to take it’s place.

But the real question is, Are gamers ready and willing to get this second batch of DLC? Or even more so, if they offer Premium, will gamers get it? Well after all gamers went through, expecting a great game and getting a bunch of Net-Code issues, I highly doubt some people will come back for the second batch and sure enough they have either already moved on to Battlefield Hard-Line or gave up entirely and went to play the new Call of Duty *Pukes* ugh, sorry, I’m umm, I’m sick. yeah I’m sick.  But either way a lot of gamers won’t be there for this second batch as much as gamers who stuck by the game will be. I know ill be ready for it. Will you? Check out funny moments from BF4 below and as they all say, see you on the battlefield.

Lizard Squad at it Again? But are They Really a Threat???

lizard_squad-650x315

Yep, unfortunately Lizard Squad is at it again. Recently PSN Servers have been attacked, and from the symptoms of the PSN servers it is another DDos attack (Uncomfirmed),but the PSN is down in many areas of the world. Now Lizard Squad as been annoying since day one. All they do is make threats, go knocking down servers, pissing us off, pretty much taking our fun from video games. Why? Who knows. Are they a threat? Well if it is another DDoS attack then no. Now I bet your wondering how that isn’t a threat. Well let me bring a little info your way gamers, especially for those of you who have no clue what DDoS even means, hell my friend Roku thought he did but he was wrong and so was I. A DDoS attack or in laymen terms (or however you spell that lol) is a Distributed Denial-of-Service Attack. And what it means in computing terms is a means of making machine or network resource unavailable to the intended Consumers/Users. A DDoS attack is more than Usually carried out by more than one person A.K.A Lizard Squad.

Now what it does is targets a host primarily of a server otherwise known as PSN and sends a massive amount of data to it in order to overflow it due to all the data trying to be processed. It is one of many ways of a DDoS attack, but from the looks of it, it is the easiest because even Lizard Squad can do it. But is it truly hacking? Is sending a whole bunch of date to a server really dangerous? Well for the server yes, it can over heat, crash, or even shut down. But other than that, it’s just a finicky little exploit, a glitch some may say.

Lizard-Squad-Graphic

I mean we can all technically do what these Lizards can. I mean we do everyday, between sending emails, uploading a video, or downright just playing a game. No these guys are not special. They aren’t making a difference, they are just annoying. Awhile ago we heard that a popular Hacker known as Anonymous revealed Lizard Squads info. Unfortunately I don’t know if it is true but Anon seems to be doing more in this world then them. And in all honesty, I see Anon as more of a Hacker and a Saint than these Lizzy Fools because from the looks of it, he/she can do way more in terms of hacking, and being legit in terms of taking the fake ones down. So I do have my fingers crossed that Anon can bring these fools down and cut off there tails for good, because all in all, i’m sick of hearing about Lizard Squad. And don;t forget to leave your two cents down below. Do you think Lizard Squad is an elite hacking group? or just a bunch of children who got torn up is some Call of Duty?

GTA Censorship Is A Wake Up Call To Video Games Industry

GTA V RealGamerNewz

Everyday there is a new issue in the community, whether it be the in the gaming community, Youtube community, or even national community issues, they all tend to have a common set, Censorship. We all hate being censored, it’s true, but yet there is always someone or something that will shut out your censorship freedom. It’s been going on for awhile but gamers and video game developers everywhere are just now starting to take notice, why? Well if you read my resent post,  Targets in Australia removed GTA 5 from their shelves. But why? Who would vote to do this?

Well ironically it is the sites that publishers have been supporting, and the funny part is these sites are not supporting the games like they should be, in fact some of the sites like Gawker, Vox Media, and UBM TechWeb are some of the few in question, because they too in fact are pushing for stores to remove certain games from store shelves. And while Publishers do nothing they lose millions to these sites who push to remove the consumer ability to purchase these games in stores, “YOUR right” may I add to retain the ability to purchase these games. WAKE UP, because before you know it the rights we fought for will be gone in a heartbeat and video games won’t be as censorship free as they are now.

Microsoft owes Chinese Government over $130 Million Dollars Due to Tax Evasion Probe

Microsoft-001

Thought the U.S was the only one in debt, well think again. Apparently Microsoft is over $130 Million dollars behind on taxes the the country of China. According to a report from a Chinese news agency Microsoft had some heavy losses in Chinese based subsidiary and has also been avoiding taxes, (Also known as tax evasion).   According to the Chinese based news Xinhua report Microsoft Corporation was said to have an investigation started due to many anomalies found within the profit loss of the subsidiary between Microsoft and China (an approximate loss of  $320 Million U.S dollars or 2 Billion yuan Chinese) Although it was an allegation Microsoft did admit to the tax evasion and agreed to pay about $130 Million dollars ( or 840 Million Yuan) in back taxes as well as interest. In the future Microsoft has also agreed to pay about $16.2 Million (or 100 Million Yuan) in taxes each year in the future due to the findings. Now at least Microsoft admitted to this and agreed upon an amount and there won’t be much dispute between China and Microsoft Corp. For more info check out http://www.electronista.com/

3 Women Start Petition for Targets in Australia to Remove GTA:5 From Their Shelves

grand-theft-auto-v-15691-1680x1050

Yes the title is correct as it is. 3 women in Australia have started a petition to remove GTA: 5 from Target’s shelves. The reason being {Quote} “It’s a game that encourages players to murder women for entertainment. The incentive is to commit sexual violence against women, then abuse or kill them to proceed or get ‘health’ points – and now Target are stocking it and promoting it for your Xmas stocking” The women who started the petition follows on to say  {Quote} “This is Grand Theft Auto 5. This game means that after various sex acts, players are given options to kill women by punching her unconscious, killing with a machete, bat or guns to get their money returned. Please Target – we appeal to you as women survivors of violence, including women who experienced violence in the sex industry, to immediately withdraw Grand Theft Auto V from sale. Now as rediculous as this may sound, it is true.

Grand-Theft-Auto-V-25

At the moment over 40,000 people have signed the petition. The sad part is that almost under half of the 40,000 people who signed it actually signed it in order to comment on it with reasons why the petition and the women who started it were misinformed and that this petition is wrong. One of the people who signed it but were against it stated this {Quote} “It is impossible to commit acts of sexual violence on anyone in this game. The only sexual acts which can be carried out are consentual, either in the form of a lap dance or paid sex from a prostitute. The fact that the game allows these sorts of things to be done does not mean they are actively encouraged. Having sex with a prostitute is not needed to complete the game in any way and it certainly does not increase health.” So does the fact that the petition is being signed not just by supporters, but by those who oppose it mean that Target will follow through with it or will they just turn a blind eye to it? You can check out the petition at this link here –> https://www.change.org/ or click on the Quote links which will take you there as well. Also, don’t forget to leave a comment on what you think about this petition opposing the sale of GTA:5 at local Targets in Australia.

Target Follows Through on Petition to Remove GTA:5 From Their Shelves

Grand-Theft-Auto-V-5-Wallpaper-HD

Well surprisingly against some wishes of the community, and despite many people opposing the supposed wrongful petition, Target actually followed through with the petition against GTA V being on Target’s shelves, and they were not the only store to follow suit as Kmart did the same. Yesterday I posted an article about 3 women starting a petition to do as I stated, get the Australian Target store chain to remove this game from their store shelves, and they actually did. But why? Many people  opposed this and even one person started another petition in order to get Target to re-add the game back to their shelves. The reason he states is {Quote}   ” The petition that started this was initiated by very misinformed people. They claim the game ‘encourages’ you to commit sexually violent or generally violent acts against women. As someone who has played the game in question extensively (Almost 200 hours), I can confirm that this is a false claim. The game NEVER encourages this. They also completely ignore the fact that there’s much more violence against men than women, but it’s definitely not on a level that should have the video game removed from stores. Plus the game has an R18+ rating for a reason.” {End Quote}

Grand-Theft-Auto-V-Splash-Image1

And this is true. A game that is Rated 18+ is rated so due to either violence and gore, Language, or Nudity, and this one has all three. And I have also played this game, completed the campaign, and even had at least 300+ hours of online gameplay, and not once was I prompted or forced to do anything sexual to anybody, male or female. But this is a Petition that is going on now to have Target Negate the previous petition and re-add the game back on to store shelves. You can check out the Petition and sign it here –> https://www.change.org/  and also check out my previous article Involving the petition to remove the game from store shelves here –>  http://realgamernewz.com/43153. And comment on your thoughts, were these women actually misinformed, or are they correct in saying GTA V is all about sexual assault?

FortNite Get Your Build On!!

Fortnite-Trailer_5

Well gamers if you have been excited for FortNite then get ready for this. Epic games has announced that as of today Dec. 2 the first wave of alpha invites have been sent out to those lucky few.  The first phase is appropriately called Online Test N0.1 and takes place starting today, and will go until December 19th. So for about 2 weeks Alpha testers get a chance to test and see this games amazing potential and test out all those cool mechanics that have been showcased to us. From a more personal view and as some info for those who have not seen this game, this game does look pretty amazing. I won’t lie, I have seen some other building games that are pretty cool, but this one takes the cake. I won’t spoil too much but if you enjoy building, customization, and shoot em up co-op all in one, then this game is for you. FortNite introduces, from what I see, an interesting build it yourself mechanic that allows you to what else, build your up your own stuff, most importantly a base to defend. There is definitely more to this game and I wish I could force myself to say more, but I don’t want to spoil too much without you all being able to see this game for yourself. So check out the video below for a pretty cool sneak peak at what is to come.

Activision Claiming Copyright on YouTube Users for Posting Videos of Call of Duty: AW Glitches

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare1

If you read the title then you are definitely reading what I am typing. Yes, Activision is indeed claiming copyright on YouTube Users for posting Glitches from Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. Sounds crazy right? Well unfortunately it is not. If you are indeed one of those YouTube users who enjoys Call of Duty Glitch hunting, then you are shat out of luck in this new installment. It seems as though Activision is pushing more toward removing these videos more so than fixing the glitches themselves, even though these videos themselves are some of the easiest and simplest ways to show them that there is a bug or 2 or maybe 50 still left in the game. All Judgment aside (from me of course) All Call of Duty games have had a major glitch spot and or spots, whether its in Black Ops 2 Zombies mode in the hidey holes in Die Rise,  or in Modern warfare 2 where you could scale the Highrise to the tippy top of the building. Each one has one, and think back on where you first saw it or heard of it. Of course it was from a friend but you know exactly where he saw it, that’s right, YouTube. So why all of a sudden is Activision taking notice of these videos and just now acknowledging them? Well who knows. Maybe it isn’t there choice entirely, maybe Sledgehammer games is putting well, the sledgehammer down on these videos, maybe they don’t want the mass to see these mistakes. Who knows, what I do know though is if your one to make 20+ Glitch videos on Cod games your going to have to find another topic, cause this new realization from Activision may just get your channel removed… or worse… Sledge-banned. Bumm bumm bummmm.

Expecting Bethesda to Make an Announment in This December’s VGX Awards? Well Don’t Expect too Much.

Fallout-4-Next-gen

As most gamers know and or already guessed, fallout is probably (in my opinion) one of the best RPG open world games of all time (not counting Skyrim), with its own unique story, freedom, background, characters, weapons, etc.. But unfortunately our most recent Fallout game was Fallout New Vegas and that was almost 6 years ago (sorry if that’s a year or two off). Although it is a really great game, it can only survive a replay every couple of times before people get tired of having to either kill Mr. House with his own 9 iron or even show Caesar how to fly around with a spear in his throat. Games get boring and unfortunately this late installment has gotten their. I still enjoy it from time to time but as a gamer I look forward to the next installment just like the rest of you. But where is it? Where is Fallout 4? Expecting me to say the announcement will be at the VGX awards? Well sorry, but unfortunately there is no evidence (even with the rumors) that Bethesda is going to talk about or even announce our next Fallout addiction.. I mean game.. Fallout game… yeah that’s what I meant.

Fallout funny dice guy

But what does it mean and when will Bethesda announce our next adventure? Unfortunately nobody knows. But some do have a bit of an idea on why they are waiting. And my personal theory is that they are getting used to the new consoles, finally being able to give Xbox and PS players a chance at some better graphics isn’t a one month process. Since the tech is new they will have to familiarize themselves with it, it shouldn’t be to bad but it could be Bethesda moving at their own pace. and all I have to say is, DON’T RUSH THEM. As we all know Fallout games tend to be buggy, even after patch after patch. And all in all, we don’t want to rush them, that will lead to them announcing an earlier date than they wanted, and in turn mad gamers who are pissed they can’t get out of whatever area they start in. All in all I say be patient gamers, an announcement will be here soon and you can bet your sweet tooty fruity mc. booties I am going to post it right here on RGN.

Call of Duty Will Not Work With PS4 Shareplay Upon the Major PS4 2.0 Update

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare1

Activision has announced that the SharePlay option will not be available for use with Call of Duty Advanced Warfare. The company released a statement saying

“Delivering a great gaming experience for fans is our top priority,” the company says in a statement via email. “We’re focused on launching Advanced Warfare and ensuring that people have a great time playing it, which our fans seem to be. Share Play is a new feature that was introduced as part of the recent PS4 firmware 2.00 update. Our engineers didn’t have access to it before it launched, so we haven’t had a chance to evaluate it to see how it will impact the experience across all modes of play. Of course we wouldn’t include a feature in our game without having the chance to test it. Once we’ve fully analyzed its performance, we’ll determine how to support it going forward.” To some gamers this comes as a bust but to the other understanding ones have agreed with the statement and are willing to be patient for Call of Duty AW to be available with SharePlay. Until then you will either have to buy the game or watch your friends do so because it does not look like you will be sharing it with your friends any time soon.”

Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is Available now on Xbox ONE, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC/Steam.
