Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order release is just around the corner. However, the street date for the game has been broken in our region and we took the opportunity to play the game on PS4 Pro. I am happy to report that Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order PS4 Pro performance is solid 60 FPS, most of the time. Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order has two modes like most PS4 Pro games, performance and resolution. The resolution mode locks the game at 30 FPS with a higher resolution. The game holds 30 FPS quite easily with occasional single frame drops. The performance mode drops Jedi Fallen Order’s resolution to 1080p with 60 FPS. As I mentioned above, the game holds a solid 60 FPS. What’s interesting is that Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order on PS4 Pro doesn’t drop below 60 FPS even during heavy combat sections. The only time I noticed…

EA Origin and Steam are coming together after a long time. EA games like Battlefield, Star Wars, and others will be accessible through Steam. It is a smart move considering Steam’s large install base and EA’s Origin launcher isn’t the most reliable of platforms. We dug up another patent for you today which sheds some more light into how EA Origin and Steam will communicate with each other. We were able to locate a patent filed at the United States Trademark and Patents Office.  Electronic Arts filed the patent on November 12, 2019, and it is a very interesting read. It looks like EA will let unregistered Steam players access to EA Origin games. Players would still require an EA Origin account to play games via Steam but EA will create a guest account for you. Both Steam and EA Origin will link up with the same credentials, at least…

The Nintendo Switch is a very successful console that has sold millions of units since it came out in March 2019. Nintendo has done a great job of marketing the Switch and the new commercial features a man with Down Syndrome. This is a very positive ad with the theme “favorite ways to play”. I think that this is a very mature ad that shows the diversity of the audience and this is a very good business practice. Nintendo has also released a cheaper version of the Switch called the Nintendo Switch Lite. The lite has been very well received and plenty of people have already got it. It was sold out in most places at launch but it back in stock now. If you missed the latest Nintendo Switch commercial that features a man with Down Syndrome then you can check it out below: https://youtu.be/QwQbwaUps3U The original Nintendo Switch…

The new 3rd Generation of AMD Threadripper CPUs uses the new sTRX4 socket. This socket has the same number of pins as the previous socket but the mapping is different. This means that you cannot use an older Threadripper CPU with this socket and you cannot use the new 3rd generation CPUs with older motherboards. AMD has confirmed that the new AMD Threadripper sTRX4 socket is here to say which means that the upcoming 4th and maybe 5th generation of AMD Threadripper CPUs will support the same socket type. AMD mentioned why and had to say the following regarding the matter: We wanted to drive maximum performance for the 3rd Gen AMD Ryzen Threadripper processors and sTRX4 helps us do exactly that. The 3rd Gen Threadripper will have 88 total PCIe Gen 4 lanes with 72 usable (CPU+motherboard). The net of total versus usable is because we’re also increasing the…

One of the very first games confirmed for PS5 is Bluepoint Games’ unannounced title. There are multiple reports and speculations about what this game is, from it being a Demon’s Soul Remastered to a brand new IP, a lot is being said. And while we can’t confirm what this game is, the information we have today at least confirms that it is probably not a PS5 exclusive title. Hence, it will possibly release on Xbox Scarlett as well. There are multiple job listings on the official Bluepoint Games website that suggest Xbox Scarlett will get the remastered game as well, if, they are talking about the same game that is. According to the job listings, Bluepoint Games is working on a remastered title for the “most advanced home consoles.” The person for the job will be responsible for integrating “next-gen material techniques,” and creating “high-quality next-generation effects models inspired by…

Last week Blizzard shared major announcements at BlizzCon 2019. Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 among others were revealed during the stage presentation. Usually, such events and big announcements have a positive impact on company stocks but that doesn’t seem to be the case with BlizzCon. Major announcements such as Diablo 4 and Overwatch 2 had little no positive impact on Blizzard’s stock. In fact, in the days following BlizzCon, Blizzard saw drops in its stock value. On the first day of Activision Blizzard’s BlizzCon, November 1, the company opened with $56.21 and ended the day with $55.82, a drop of 0.69% despite major announcements at BlizzCon. After the weekend the company again opened at $55.82 on November 4 but quickly dropped to $54.24 before ending the day on $55.71. There was another drop on November 5. Stocks going up and down throughout the week is nothing to be concerned about.…

Activision is one of the biggest video game publishers in the industry, with franchises like Call of Duty, Overwatch, World of Warcraft and more under its belt. Activision has filed a new patent for an in-game coaching system for its multiplayer titles. According to the filed patent, Activision’s in-game coaching system will help players to perform better in multiplayer games. The in-game coaching system determines the play style of the player and offers recommendations to improve the player’s gaming skills. The patent was filed by Activision on October 31, 2019. As the model above suggests, a player will request the server to get help in a multiplayer game. The server will access player data and will determine the play style. Then the server will look for a gameplay model suitable for the determined play style and then will deliver the information to the player. According to the patent: Resistent to…

EA recently announced its grand return to Steam with Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order and EA Access which’s something in 2020. Electronic Arts is planning to bring a ton of games to Steam but it won’t split the community on both platforms. EA Origin will work in a similar manner to how uPlay and Steam interact with each other. EA filed a patent on November 5 that confirmed cross-save and cross-progression between Origin and Steam for EA games. The following description is from the United States Patents and Trademarks Office. Individual users may log into the same online game from multiple different social networking platforms. The disclosed technology provides a way to unite users’ accounts such that users that have logged into the online game from different social networking platforms can have their progress in the online game preserved regardless of which social networking platforms the user logged in from.…

Battle.net has been facing issues since Blizzcon and the situation isn’t getting any better it seems. Blizzard fixed the problem yesterday but the servers are having log-in issues once again. Players are reporting issues with the servers, we ourselves checked the issue and indeed there are log-in problems right now at Battle.Net. We are aware of an issue affecting our authentication servers, which may result in slow or failed login attempts. We are currently investigating the cause and will provide updates as they are available. Please follow @BlizzardCSEU_EN on Twitter for further updates. Blizzard Entertainment is working on fixing the problem but at this point, we can safely say that the “fixes” aren’t working as well as the engineers’ hope. Here are a few Tweets from unhappy Blizzard fans. @Blizzard_Ent has lost all of my respect as an American company as well as a gaming company. I deleted my #Battlenet…
