Magicka 2 - Karaoke Singalong Trailer - movie
(hx) 02:53 PM EDT - Sep,12 2014 - Post a comment
Paradox Interactive today released a new trailer for Magicka 2, the dynamic spellcasting co-op action game that hits all the right notes. The new trailer shows a new slice of Magicka 2's gameplay to the public, and also debuts the hidden singing talents of Magicka 2's robe-clad musical, magical miscreants in the first-ever (and very probably only-ever) Magicka 2 Karaoke Video.

In Magicka 2, the robe warriors from Paradox's classic action-catastrophe game are back with new adventures, new abilities, and new ways to "accidentally" destroy your friends. Coming to PC and, for the first time, PS4, Magicka 2 now includes local multiplayer, a game-altering "artifact" system, and more robes than you can fit in a magical wardrobe to another dimension. Magicka 2 is scheduled for launch in early 2015.
Destiny Makes $500 Million in First 24 Hours - briefly
(hx) 02:48 PM EDT - Sep,12 2014 - Post a comment / read (6)
Activision announced that Destiny has made $500 million in sales in its first 24 hours of release. This makes it the biggest video game launch ever.
"Based on extraordinary audience demand, retail and first party orders worldwide have exceeded $500 million for Destiny," said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. "This industry milestone marks another blockbuster success for our company and demonstrates our unique ability to create some of the most successful entertainment franchises in the world. The success of Destiny, along with the recent introduction of Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone, is further validation of our unique capabilities to create great entertainment franchises from the ground up."
Suddenly, Activision's investment of $500 million into the Destiny franchise doesn't sound so idiotic.
"Since the beginning, we've been confident that our investment and belief in Destiny would pay off. But not many people believed we'd be able to say it did so on day one," said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. "Destiny is officially the biggest new franchise launch in our industry's history. It's also the highest-selling day one digital console release in history. We have more confidence than ever that Destiny will become one of the iconic franchises of this generation and Activision's next billion dollar brand. Most importantly, it's just a great game which we can't stop playing. A big thanks to our incredibly talented team and partners who helped make this happen; most importantly, our partners at Bungie."

(hx) 01:26 AM EDT - Sep,12 2014 - Post a comment / read (2)
CapCom Unity announces the release of the first patch for the PC edition of Dead Rising 3 to address some crashes in the zombie game, though they add that they are still working on an additional issue:
    First of all, the team here at Capcom would like to thank you for your patience and support many of you have provided in the original bug report thread.

    Without further ado, the first patch rolling out today [available now] will address the following issues:

        - Fixed an issue which caused game progress to not save or load correctly when Steam Cloud is enabled.
        - Fixed an issue which made it impossible to select native resolutions on some video card / monitor setups.
        - Fixed an issue which was causing the game to not shut down properly.

    Note that you may need to restart or log in/out of your Steam client to force the patch download. Download size should be around 10MB, and the patch is applicable to everyone who owns DR3.

    Note on crash issues
    Please note the team is still actively looking into fixing the initial load-screen CTD/hangs affecting certain Nvidia Optimus laptop users as well as the random in-game crash affecting a subset of desktop users. The information you have provided has given us good leads which we are investigating now. We expect to have more news for you soon.
