Starcraft 2:Legacy of the Void beta kicks off today - briefly
(hx) 03:33 PM EDT - Mar,31 2015 - Post a comment
As it's often the case with Blizzard games, not everyone will be able to access the beta from the get-go, with beta keys scheduled to be sent in waves to those who have signed up on The Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void sign up process is pretty straightforward and you can check it out here. While you're there make sure you opt in for all the other betas as well, especially for the Overwatch one, which is set to begin sometime later this year.

As for Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void, this is the third and final chapter in the highly acclaimed sci-fi RTS trilogy. Unlike in Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm where the focus was on the Terran and Zerg, respectively, the third installment will be focused entirely on the Protoss. You can still expect to see well known characters like Jim Raynor and Sarah Kerrigan, but the main protagonists this time around will be Zeratul and Artanis. What makes Starcraft 2: Legacy of the Void a bit more special than its predecessor is the fact that this is a standalone expansion pack, so you won’t need the previous titles in order to play it.

Capcom Removes Local Co-Op from RE5: Gold - briefly
(hx) 03:58 PM EDT - Mar,30 2015 - Post a comment
After the complete nonsense with the removal of local co-op from Resident Evil Revelations 2, Capcom decided to yet again give the middle finger to PC gamers by completely removing the local co-op code that was present in Resident Evil 5.
RE5 was recently updated, it stripped GFWL in favor of Steam, and finally after 6 years of waiting we get the Untold stories DLC (also known as RE5:Gold). However GFWL wasn't the only thing that was stripped, the GFWL version had a fully functioning coop mode that was easily enabled by modders:

It was so easy to enable, that many of us hoped that Capcom will officially add it to the game, but nope, they actually made an extra effort to remove it completely and even potentially lied about it.

Here is what Capcom had to say:

To clarify though, the split screen code that was ripped out from the PC build is from the console version.

As some of you may know, MT Framework is our multiplatform development tool/engine that is utilized across several platforms. The aforementioned split-screen code is an orphaned code base from the PS3/Xbox 360 SKU which simply does not work on a PC.

The crux of the issue is that the PC code base has no concept of multiple controllers. In other words, if you plugged in two Xbox controllers, RE5 has no way of figuring out which gamepad controls which character -- or what happens if one player uses a KB+M versus a gamepad. It's a difficult problem to solve since the original game's logic wasn't designed with multiple controller devices in mind.

Here is what a modder had to say:

I don't understand why you claim the code "simply does not work on a PC". As I was one of the key people who worked on the split-screen mod that enabled it on the GFWL initial release version for PCs. I can confirm that all the code is FULLY functional and it worked flawlessly for the GFWL version. We did not add anything extra to the game at all, it was simply enabled. The only problem was that the keyboard would control both characters so it was forcibly disabled. The game has no problem at all distinguishing between two controllers. Evidently the game knows to assign PAD1 to Player1, PAD2 to Player2 vise versa. Otherwise no characters would have moved at all.
