Sifu's autumn update will let you create your own takedown cam

1 Share

Developer Sloclap has released some details on what is coming to kung-fu beat-em-up Sifu in its autumn update.

In August, Sifu received a beefy content update, which featured a new scoring system and modifiers which allowed players to customise the difficulty. Two new outfits were also added, and Slocap teased more to come in the autumn update.

Included in the roadmap for Sifu in the autumn update is the replay editor and additional modifiers. Slocap shared a brief look at the replay editor on the official Twitter account for Sifu.

The original Quake get a ray tracing upgrade - and it's incredible

1 Share

The transformative power of ray tracing has proven itself across many different games but perhaps the most impressive upgrades come from revisiting older, classic PC titles, and a recent mod for the original Quake delivers frankly astonishing results. This is less a mod and more a full-on RT remaster for one of PC's finest games, arriving courtesy of Sultim Tsyrendashiev, the maker of path-traced renditions of Serious Sam and Doom, and who's currently working on RT Half-Life. Tsyrendashiev has taken the Vulkan port of Quake by id Software's Axel Gneiting and delivered something very, very special.

But first up, how do you get your hands on the modified game? Simply download the necessary files from the VKQuake-RT github page and merge them with the version of Quake you own per the instructions on the page. It's all relatively straightforward, but I do recommend making one small change to the instructions. DLSS and FSR2 are supported - and both deliver great results overall, by the way - but the recommended DLSS 2.4.0 should be swapped out for the earlier DLSS 2.2.6. Doing this eliminates blurring issues that kick in with the more recent rendition of Nvidia's machine-learning upscaling technology.

Beyond image reconstruction, gamers actually get two different RT implementations with this mod - a 'classic' option that looks more like the original game with some very nice ray-traced upgrades, alongside a full path-tracer, radically transforming the aesthetic of the game.

Sony Admits PS Plus Is Lagging Behind Xbox Game Pass

1 Share

Sony Interactive Entertainment has revealed during its response to UK regulators investigating the buyout of Activision Blizzard that its subscription tiers within PS Plus “considerably lag” behind Xbox Game Pass.

The hardware manufacturer is concerned that the likes of Call of Duty would be added to Xbox Game Pass as exclusives if Microsoft were to successfully complete its buyout of the publishing giant. Xbox Game Pass has around 29 million members, and has obviously been a major selling point of Xbox consoles.

Microsoft recently admitted that its first-party output are not as good as Sony’s own titles, although the PlayStation maker believes that its rivals ‘true strategy’ for buying Activision Blizzard is to ‘make PlayStation like Nintendo,’ in the sense it won’t be competing in the 18-rated shooter market.

Elsewhere, Sony also revealed during its response to regulators that it does not expect the launch of PS6 to happen until after 2027.

US competition regulator "likely" to challenge Microsoft-Activision deal

1 Share

The US' Federal Trade Commission is "likely" to file an antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft's proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard.

The report from Politico suggests that while a lawsuit is not guaranteed, and that the FTC's four commissioners have yet to vote on the deal or meet with the two company's lawyers, FTC staff members are "sceptical" of the companies' arguments.

A decision on whether to take the deal to court could be decided as early as next month.

Microsoft Sued For Allegedly Exploiting Activision’s “Weak And Wounded” State For $69 Billion Acquisition

1 Share

When Microsoft made its first steps towards acquiring Activision Blizzard, it’s fair to say that it didn’t expect everything to go smoothly, but it’s also fair to say that it didn’t expect things to be this rocky either.

Multiple regulatory bodies still have yet to approve the deal, and to make matters worse, a new lawsuit has been brought forward to Microsoft, alleging that the tech giant “knowingly exploited the harassment scandal and its commercial leverage over Activision precisely to offer (Bobby) Kotick a way to save his own skin.”

The lawsuit calls the $69 billion deal a “bargain price” for Activision, and says that Microsoft “conspired with Kotick and the board to help them evade the personal and professional consequences of that scandal.”

Microsoft denies these allegations, saying that the “proposed acquisition of Activision Blizzard was negotiated lawfully and fairly.”

Unlike other roadblocks on Microsoft’s way to acquiring Activision Blizzard, this has almost nothing to do with Call Of Duty.

It seems that the suit, brought forward by a pension fund in Delaware’s Chancery Court is more zeroed in on how the acquisition could conveniently let Kotick and other high level executives or board members avoid the fallout of the allegations towards them regarding the atrocities the public learned of in the last two years.

Of course what happens with this suit and the acquisition itself is still very much up in the air, though this suit can now be tacked onto the mountain of blocks Microsoft still needs to climb, to get this acquisition through.
