GamesRadar has word that Dark Souls and Bloodborne developer From Software is working on a game that will support PlayStation VR.
Dark Souls developer FromSoftware is working on a PlayStation VR title, according to an unlisted sizzle reel for the company's previous and upcoming games. The video shows projects stretching across FromSoftware history, back to King's Field and Armored Core on the original PlayStation and up through Dark Souls 3. It concludes with a slide labelled "FromSoftware, Inc. Next Title on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation VR" coming in 2017 and beyond.
All the other slides in the video (which was spotted by Reddit user 113mac113) also refer to "Title" in the singular when presenting multiple games, so From may be working on several projects for one or more of those platforms. Either way, it seems to be confirmation that the company is working on a game for Sony's virtual reality headset.
A post on the PlayStation Blog from Infinity Ward has word that Infinite Warfare will include a Zombie mode for the first time in the franchise history.
Finally, Infinite Warfare will be the first game in the franchise to venture beyond the reaches of Earth, framing a plausible future war in our solar system. To be clear, we aren’t developing a science fiction or space battle game — Infinite Warfare is first and foremost a Call of Duty game, which means visceral boots-on-the-ground infantry combat as well as piloting combat vehicles. But, by expanding the scope of the action into the vastness of space, we are taking this experience to exciting and surprising places in many ways.
Though we are putting a great deal of emphasis on the game’s engaging story, Infinite Warfare will of course continue to push boundaries for online multiplayer. Our maps will showcase never-before-seen environments depicted for the first time in franchise history. And, with fast, fun, and frenetic gameplay, our multiplayer will challenge players to achieve their goals in various, novel ways.
Additionally, Infinite Warfare will introduce an original cooperative Zombies mode that takes players on a wild ride through a new storyline with unique gameplay features and mechanics. More details about multiplayer and the new zombies experience will be announced at a later date. For now, we’re excited to say that PS4 owners will get DLC Map Packs 30 days early. So plan your upcoming holiday season weekends carefully.

BBC has an article and interview with Australian Craig Wright, one of the original suspects as the creator of bitcoin, claiming he is indeed the mysterious figure behind the most popular and valuable alt-currency in the world.
His admission follows years of speculation about who came up with the original ideas underlying the digital cash system.
Mr Wright has provided technical proof to back up his claim using coins known to be owned by Bitcoin's creator.
Prominent members of the Bitcoin community and its core development team say they have confirmed his claims.
Does it really matter? Bitcoin doesn't get more or less valuable because it has a person who created it. The only people it matters to are the tax authorities who can now rake this guy over the coals for the $450m he has stashed away in BTC.
But many others in the Bitcoin world are asking for more proof.

Disney's The Jungle Book trounced a handful of underperforming new releases to rule the box office for a third consecutive week, while next week's certain champ, Captain America: Civil War, began setting records overseas.

Political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability when the actions of the Avengers lead to collateral damage. The new status quo deeply divides members of the team. Captain America (Chris Evans) believes superheroes should remain free to defend humanity without government interference. Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) sharply disagrees and supports oversight. As the debate escalates into an all-out feud, Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) and Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) must pick a side.
Infinity Ward is the original studio behind the Call of Duty franchise. That heritage means a great deal to us.

Mass Effect is traveling to a strange new world: California's Great America theme park. The Mass Effect attraction opens on May 18th at California's Great America in Santa Clara, featuring an interactive 3D presentation with 4D effects, all hosted by a live performer. Riders will travel to "a distant planet" to make a stand against "larger-than-life foes," though there's no word on which characters will make an appearance in the experience. The ride is made in conjunction with Mass Effect publisher EA, and developer BioWare announced it back in September.
The Electronic Software Association has published results from its annual survey (with Ipsos MediaCT) of 4,000 U.S. households, and the trade body's findings suggest that dedicated game console ownership is slipping a bit in America.
According to the ESA, 48 percent of U.S. households are home to a dedicated game console, though 65 percent of said households own a device that is used to play games -- which encompasses things like PCs, smartphones and tablets.
While the ESA's report should be taken with a grain of salt, it's still interesting to note that this is the first time in years that the percentage of homes in America with dedicated game consoles has dipped below the halfway mark: through 2013, 2014 and 2015 the number remained steady at 51 percent of American households surveyed owning at least one dedicated game console.
The most prolific TF2 cheatware LMAOBOX has finally been detected by Valve Anti-Cheat and resulted in a wave of bans that includes more than 160 UGC league players.
The hack, which has been available for free or in a premium version for more than five years, was added to the VAC detection list in a recent update and, according to some competitive players caught in the wave, bans are backdated by almost a year.
A wave of bans have hit players at all levels of the largest competitive TF2 league UGC including the top Platinum tier in Australia, New Zealand and North America.

IGN is spreading the rumor that director James Wan might be on his way out as director of the Aquaman movie.
Rumor has it director James Wan may cut bait and run from the Aquaman movie.
Birth.Movies.Death claims to have heard rumblings that the filmmaker may follow The Flash's former director Seth Grahame-Smith out the door of the Warner Bros.-DC movies camp:
"According to multiple, reliable sources James Wan is feeling a tremendous amount of trepidation about Aquaman. It's important to remember two things - Fast 7 was a very difficult process for him, even without Paul Walker's tragic death, and James Wan doesn't really need Aquaman."
The site purports that Warner Bros. execs have been in crisis mode given the critical and audience backlash towards Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and have been exerting pressure on director Zack Snyder and his vision for Justice League: Part One, which is currently in production in London with Aquaman actor Jason Momoa.
Quantum Break has already received its Xbox One update, and now the PC version will get its own patch tomorrow, April 30. The patch is expected to fix major issues including the lack of a quit button, the frame rate, and much more.
Two of the more prominent issues were the game's frame rate not matching a monitor's refresh rate and the absence of a quit option. With the April 30 update, the frame rate should be fixed, and players should be able to quit the game from the main menu.
Additionally, the update fixes issues that were shared with the Xbox One version. The rare bug that kills progress after completing the game should be fixed, as well as in-game TV screens sometimes appearing grain-y. Players shouldn't lose their cloud saves any more, either.
Seth Grahame-Smith is leaving the Warner Bros. project due to “creative differences,” THR has learned.
Grahame-Smith, the author and screenwriter of such works as Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, was to have made his directorial debut on the project based on the iconic DC Entertainment scarlet-speedster superhero.
The project will retain Grahame-Smith’s script, which he wrote working off of a treatment by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, the Lego Movie duo who once were eyeing it as a possible directing vehicle.
The Flash already has a release date — March 16, 2018 — and a star, Ezra Miller, who's portraying the classic hero known as "the fastest man alive." There is plenty of time for the studio to find a director.
Ubisoft has announced they "have implemented new cheat detection methods," as apposed to preventing the cheats in the first place, to help improve the "player experience" in its cheat plagued shooter Tom Clancy's The Division.
From the very beginning of development, our emphasis has always been on the player experience and how good we want it to be. We have great plans for the future of The Division, and for these to succeed we must make sure to provide a smooth high-quality experience. Unfortunately, the gameplay experience was recently impaired by in-game bugs and players violating the rules of the game. In order to bring back a better and healthier environment, we have taken new steps to address the situation.
Cheating players have been an issue for a number of you in the Dark Zone, and we’ve heard this feedback loud and clear. We are strengthening our efforts to address this problem, as described below.
First, we have implemented new cheat detection methods that have allowed us to identify many more players currently using cheat engines in the game. We have already caught more cheaters in the last few days than we had in total during the previous weeks. As a result, we will be handing out the biggest wave of suspensions and bans to date over the course of the next few days.
Second, when cheaters are caught, we will now apply a suspension of 14 days on first offense (instead of the previous 3 day initial suspension). Second offense will always be a permanent ban.
We anticipate these two changes will noticeably improve your experience. New upgrades on cheat detection are underway.
What is a bug exploit?
An exploit is the active triggering and use of a bug or glitch to bypass established game rules in order to gain a significant advantage or skip progression steps otherwise necessary.
Identifying and fixing bugs before releasing new content is one of the most important parts of game development. This is also the best way to guarantee a smooth and enjoyable experience for our players. Learning from the past and your great feedback, we are currently reviewing our development and testing process to further minimize the amount and impact of these bugs going forward.
Unfortunately, we cannot simulate the experience that millions of different players will have, and how they will play the game. As a result, some bugs may make it through testing, and may be present when an update is deployed. In the event that a bug makes it into the game, and this bug can be used by players to gain an advantage, we need to be able to react and fix it, but also dissuade players from exploiting this bug until it is fixed. This is why moving forward we will adopt a stronger stance against players abusing exploits.
Our first step is to give you clearer and more concrete visibility. Should new bugs be discovered, we will quickly confirm if these are considered exploits. All known exploits will be clearly listed in a public forum thread and across our various communication platforms. We want all players to be informed. This will ensure that those caught after an exploit was confirmed are aware of the consequences and actions that can be taken against them.
Second, sanctions will be implemented for players who repeatedly abuse exploits and will vary depending on the severity of the abuse, as well as the history of the player. Possible sanctions include character rollbacks, account suspensions and permanent bans. Those who encounter bugs during the normal course of play have absolutely nothing to worry about.
As mentioned earlier, providing a high-quality experience is our priority. Fixing game bugs is one aspect of it, and we are improving our processes to address that. Dissuading players from impairing others’ gameplay by violating the rules of the game is another aspect. We also want to give you better visibility and transparency. We are fully committed to providing an enjoyable and fair environment for all our players, and will take all steps necessary to achieve this goal.
Metallica appeared live at Rasputin Music, Berkeley, CA on Record Store Day April 16, 2016. A couple of days ago they posted videos from the event on YouTube. It was a good set, featuring a bunch of their classic tunes. \m/
We're pretty excited to announce that the Ambassador for Record Store Day 2016 is not one person, but four: the four who make up METALLICA.
From the very first Record Store Day, Metallica have embraced the concept, and celebrated the culture of the indie record store with in-store appearances and special releases for both our special April Saturday and Black Friday. Be sure to check out the Ambassador Statement, written by drummer Lars Ulrich, and the video where the entire band gets excited about record stores and exciting Metallica reissue news.
The Daily Mail has the story, a video and a good number of pictures from the festivities.
For many, the end of the world might seem daunting, but for these festival goers a post-apocalyptic world in the middle of a Californian desert is a form of escapism.
At least this is the case for Mike Orr who is known as 'Sweet Lips' at Wasteland Weekend - the annual four-day festival that allows lovers of the Mad Max movie franchise to see what it is really like to live in a society where civilization is crumbling.
'It's the end of the world,' Orr said of Wasteland which attracts thousands from across the country. 'You get to do whatever you want to do.'
Each year, attendees of the event are required to be decked out in costumes while at the festival's wasteland compound with organizers designing elaborate sets complete with Mad Max-style cars. Festival goers also drive out to the event in custom-made vehicles.

During their investigation, they uncover a shocking conspiracy that reaches up to the highest circles of power.
“The Nice Guys” is scheduled for release in theaters on May 20, 2016.
Based on the critically acclaimed, bestselling novel by Jojo Moyes, New Line Cinema’s and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures’ “Me Before You” stars Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”) and Sam Claflin (“The Hunger Games” series), under the direction of Thea Sharrock, making her feature film directorial debut.

Louisa “Lou” Clark (Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge. Taking a job at the local “castle,” she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye. No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up. That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living. Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives—and hearts—changing in ways neither one could have imagined.
Just a day after it was announced that the BBC and Netflix are creating a new version of the classic Watership Down, the Telegraph has word that the on-screen deaths in the new series will be watered down and the female characters will be lifted up.
It was the film that traumatised a generation of children, with its much-loved rabbit characters slain on screen in graphic and memorable scenes. But the story of Watership Down is to be remade for a new era, as programme-makers promise to tone down its most brutal images.
The BBC has teamed up with Netflix for one of the most expensive mini-series ever made for the small screen, and the first animated four-part drama of its kind.The show’s executive producer told the Telegraph the 2017 version will not just tone down the levels of on-screen violence to make it more appropriate for children, but give a boost to its female characters.
Female rabbits including Clover, played by Gemma Arterton, Strawberry, played by Olivia Colman, and Hyzenthlay, played by Anne-Marie Duff, will get a dose of doe power, as it were, to allow them to display their own heroics alongside their male co-stars.

As it looked like John Romero's new FPS Blackroom was far from meeting it's Kickstarter goal of $700k, he has put the project on hold until a gameplay demo can be prepared.
Pressing Pause for a Gameplay Demo
After listening to the gaming community since we've launched the campaign, we've decided to give you what you've asked for: a gameplay demo of Blackroom. The team is at work on a demo which demonstrates the kind of gameplay, look and innovative, cool features that make Blackroom truly unique — the things we’ve waited years to put into an FPS and which make us incredibly excited about this game.
There’s a hitch here, a hitch that’s making us do something that’s right for the game, the team, and the community: we’re pressing “PAUSE” on the fundraising campaign for Blackroom to complete this gameplay demo. Simply put, this will take more time than the Kickstarter has left, so we’ve decided to suspend the campaign and launch a new one when the gameplay demo is ready. We believe, however, it is the right choice. Thanks to the community feedback, we know we should have included it at launch.
Your support for our game and our vision has been incredible and valuable. You've already proved you want this campaign to succeed, and we believe a gameplay demo will get the rest of the gaming community just as excited for this game as you already are. We will, of course, honor backer achievements in the next campaign. We’ll add an extra something for those of you who continue to support us and we will be in touch to collect your information to reward your support in the next campaign.
