Warframe is almost impressively obtuse; to the outside observer rather impenetrable. The free-to-play loot shooter has over five years of additions since its launch, layering system upon system upon system. All of which have an impressive amount of depth to them, but it is also almost aggressively uninterested in making sure newer players understand any of it. There’s Warframes to mod, guns and swords and crossbows to craft in the Foundry, Dojo rooms to build, Endo and Mutagen Samples and Argon Crystals and, well, a whole bunch of other stuff. Like, a lot of other stuff, so be ready to grind, a lot. To help you on your journey into one of the biggest free-to-play loot games out there, we’ve got a bunch of tips and tricks for making your Tenno the best Tenno that it can be. Written by Dave Irwin & Taylor Cocke. Warframe tips and tricks guide Like any good loot game, Warframe is all about doing the same thing over and over again in order to get better and better stats. … [Read more...] about Warframe guide: essential tips for beginners

Fortnite has become a game where you often develop connections with gamers online through the famous Battle Royale game mode. Players of related interests interact to help each other out in playing the game more effectively. Similar was the case with 13 years old Jake Bates of Mason, Ohio who met someone online but ended up getting conned into handing over his account’s private information to a player online. The fellow player cleverly convinced Jake into sharing personal details of his account and Jake got tricked in the course. Report on a news channel in Ohio suggests that Jake used to chat with the hacker via online video gaming. The youngster was misled into believing that the hacker would provide him with additional skins for his character and for this purpose Bates provided him the details of his account. Bates specifically gave him the username and password of his Fortnite account. However, Bates later got his email account hacked too. Passwords, recovery passwords and … [Read more...] about Another Fortnite Player Scammed, Account Hacked for Info
We've entered the second day of Amazon Prime Day for 2018, and that means there are numerous deals for you to peruse. In the US, the sale started out by taking down Amazon's website for many users, though even with those issues persisting for some, you can still successfully head directly to a product page to make a purchase. Of course, to do so, you'll need an Amazon Prime membership--and you can sign up for a free trial if you don't already have one. There's still a fair amount of time left to take advantage of the sales on offer, and there may still be some to come that we don't yet know about.Prime Day runs until midnight on the night of Tuesday, July 17 (3 AM ET). Some deals will be far more limited than that for one reason or another--some will only run for a few hours, while others will sell out, as we saw with a nice Nintendo Switch bundle--although that has since come back in stock, and it remains one of the best gaming deals from the sale. All of this makes it difficult to … [Read more...] about Best Amazon Prime Day 2018 Gaming Deals For PS4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, And 3DS
Criminals demand money from Albion Online It was an interesting weekend for Albion Online; full of twists and turns, server restarts and ransom demands. To get a better feel for just how serious things got, the CEO and Founder himself took to the forum to explain what was happening: Bercilak → DDOS & Blackmailing saying that a ransom demand was given and is purely asking for money. Now while it is nicely spelled out on the forums, if you were in game during the DDoS attacks you would have been greeted with the above server wide message (which was immediately ridiculed in chat and many vowed to start a DDoS Criminals guild). While DDoS (Distributed Denial-of–Service) attacks have been plaguing MMO’s for years, the community responses are more unique in this particular case as some are doubting that there even is a DDoS happening (language warning: angry tweet) and what we are seeing is a False Flag attempt to shift blame off the servers and database … [Read more...] about Albion Online: Calls out DDOS Criminals during Server Restart
On May 14, 2011, only one game was released on Steam: Jason Rohrer's tactical shooter Inside a Star-filled Sky. "It was on the Steam front page for five days," he tells me. "Releasing a game back then on Steam meant you'd instantly have an audience—I had all these new players that had never even heard of it before." But things have changed a lot since then. Developers are pumping games onto Steam at an astonishing rate, making it harder than ever for individual games to stand out from the crowd. Last Wednesday, as 83 games came to Steam, Rohrer released multiplayer survival sim One Hour One Life to the public through his own website, opting to sell it to players directly. He's no stranger to direct sales—only two of the 19 games he has made are on Steam—and other indie developers tell me they're keen on it too. So, what's the draw? And without the exposure that Steam and other sales platforms can offer, how viable is the model? The most obvious benefit to a … [Read more...] about Is it worth cutting out Steam to sell indie games direct?
