DO your children spend loads of time watching videos on YouTube? There's plenty of dodgy content available on the site, so you need to make sure they're not viewing inappropriate clips – and we've got some handy tips to help. In just a few of our YouTube investigations, we've uncovered adverts for steroids and porn sites, hardcore sex videos, and even XXX playlists designed to lure in children. So it's really important that you're mindful about what your child has access to. Sadly, the biggest problem is that YouTube has very limited parental controls. But there are still some ways to protect your kids. YouTube Restricted Mode Restricted Mode is an optional setting on YouTube that helps filter out mature videos. It's not perfect, but it's a good way of scrubbing out a large portion of the adult material on YouTube. However, you have to turn it off manually for each browser or device your child is using – it can't simply be applied at account level. On your computer, go to … [Read more...] about How to keep your kids safe on YouTube – the settings you need to change today

A Way Out is the next game from the indie team behind the brilliant Brothers: A Tale of Two sons. Like the studio’s first game, it focuses on two characters who need to cooperate to win. Unlike the first game, it’s being published by EA. “Here’s the thing, and you have to understand this: with this deal that I have for this game, EA is not making a single dollar out of this,” Fares explained in an interview with The Sixth Axis. “Every single dollar is going to the developer. They’re not even making any money and all I’ve got is support from EA. “They’ve not questioned the vision – they can’t because I won’t allow it – so they’ve been super supportive all the way. Even with this buy one [Friend Pass] thing, no problem.” If you aren’t already aware of it, the Friend Pass allows players to play A Way Out in online co-op with their friends with just a single copy of the game. EA has … [Read more...] about “EA is not making a single dollar,” says A Way Out dev

Long story short: that million-dollar war...wasn't a million-dollar war. It was actually a $10,000 hiccup (someone on Imgur actually did the maths). For those of you who want tales of massive explosions and daring exploits by maverick pilots, you're going to want to look somewhere else. Despite a record 6,000 players fighting in the same star system, the Keepstar (a large Citadel) being attacked by The Imperium survived the onslaught and there was only about $10,000 of damage. Largely thanks to server issues. Because EVE Online players share a single universe, when a huge amount of them occupy the same space TiDi (Time Dilation) is kicked into effect. Basically, time has to be slowed down to cope with the massive amount of people all trying to execute their own commands simultaneously. One Redditor by the name of avree broke down what this meant for what was hyped as the most expensive battle in EVE Online history. But although time was slowed down for the attackers, the Keepstar … [Read more...] about That big million dollar EVE Online war happened… and only cost about $10,000. What happened?
PC strategy title Eve Online is a sprawling, sophisticated MMO with a dynamic economy, living communities, and a political backdrop that could fill up a library’s worth of history books, but in the next 24 hours it stands to become the backdrop to a one million dollar battle, involving thousands of players and an even larger audience. The basic gist of EVE Online is this; players control ships, weapons, and resources (both material and human) in an ever evolving tug of war for control of a persistent galaxy first created by CCP Games 15 years ago. This has established a fertile ground for feuds, stalemates, and large scale wars, one of which made the news in 2013 for costing a total of $300,000 in terms of player expenditure. But how does that amount of money make it into a game like Eve Online? Well, players are able to purchase subscription time with cash, and sell that resource in-game for EVE Online’s own virtual currency, thus establishing a conversion rate that allows … [Read more...] about The next big EVE Online war is about to break out, and it could cost one million dollars… wait, what?!
