XCOM: Enemy Within adds 'save scum' option for players that exploit quicksave

XCOM: Enemy Within adds 'save scum' option for players that exploit quicksave

Save. Shoot. Die. Reload save. Take cover. Save.

While many players love the brutal nature of Iron Man mode in XCOM: Enemy Unknown, many other players chose to exploit the game's quicksave options. By saving in between every action, players could always revert to an earlier save if a tactical decision ever goes awry. And in XCOM's case, that is probably very often.

However, in Enemy Within, the dice rolls have already been set when you save the game. So, if you miss a 50% shot to hit an enemy, you'll always miss that shot, no matter how often you reload the game. That feature is going to change in Enemy Within with the "save scum" option.

Now Microsoft has shut down Games for Windows Live, what happens to the one use anyone had for it--buying the Minerva's Den DLC for BioShock 2?

XCOM from aliens' perspective would be complicated, says Firaxis

XCOM from aliens' perspective would be complicated, says Firaxis

With XCOM: Enemy Unknown having done well for itself last year and the upcoming Enemy Within expansion, the XCOM series has plumbed the depths of a human fight and even incorporated some alien tech. The next logical step would seem to be showing us the war from the alien point-of-view, but Firaxis' Anada Gupta says it's much more complicated than it seems. Mainly, that's because he wouldn't want to simply replace human components with alien ones.

Grand Theft Auto Online virtual cash sales hinted at

As Grand Theft Auto V hit $1 billion in sales within three days, why, Rockstar is surely gleefully eating burritos made from $100 bills and minced nickels and dimes. It seems the online element will help us live such, dreams virtually at least, as recently-uncovered files suggest Grand Theft Auto Online may sell cash cards as DLC. Lucky us!

Grand Theft Auto V sold $800 million on launch day

Grand Theft Auto V sold $800 million on launch day

I was watching the news today, and apparently a new video game named Grand Theft Auto V is out. Who knew? It seems pretty popular too, as Take-Two has announced it raked in the highest first-day sales in not only the GTA series, but the company's entire history too.

With estimated sell-through of over $800 million, it should even break Activision's four-year streak of boasting that the new Call of Duty is the year's biggest entertainment launch. Cod Blops 2 hit $500 million on its first day last year, up $100m from the game before.

Shack PSA: don't install GTA 5's 'Play' disc on Xbox 360

"I don't want to post more stories about Grand Theft Auto 5 today," I mutter, "but it is the biggest launch in yonks, and this is relevant." Fine. Right then. More GTA 5 stories. Because no publisher wants to talk about anything else today anyway. It's a simple PSA: if you buy it on Xbox 360, don't, in your excitement, install the second disc. Because reasons, that's why.
