  1. EA Snaps Up Domains Up to Battlefield20.com, So Rock, Paper, Shotgun Grabs Battlefield21.com

    If you love games where you pretend to kill your friends and strangers over the Internet, then you're probably down with EA's Battlefield series. Battlefield 4 is coming out this Fall, but EA has plans for even more sequels to the game. Kind of a lot of them, in fact.  They recently registered Battlefield domains ending in numbers 13-20, so gaming site Rock Paper Shotgun did them exactly one better and registered Battlefield21.com.

  2. Hack Shows Offline SimCity Play’s Possible, Questions Always-Online Requirement

    Electronic Arts has done a terrible job with the launch of the newest SimCity, and things have just gotten worse since someone hacked the game to show that it can run offline, calling into question EA's claims that forcing players to be online in order to play is required for the game to run properly, and not just sneaky digital rights management.

  3. Report: Minecraft Will be Updated With Beds to Sleep Through the Night, Moveable Spawn Points

    Rock, Paper, Shotgun is exclusively reporting that a coming Minecraft update will include beds that players can sleep in and bypass the night. I know what you're thinking, and no, there's no mention if this will work in a multiplayer server. Also, potentially amazingly, RPS is reporting that beds will eventually be updated to become a personalized, moving spawn point, where the last bed the player sleeps in becomes their current spawn point. We'll update with any information when it becomes available. Notch also leaked the next update via Twitter, which is supposed to update with a new launcher for the game. Unless you have some technical prowess, I'd suggest just waiting for the automatic update.

    And yes, that's a picture of the heart-shaped wool bed in the honeymoon suite within the apartment building in our server.

  8. Telltale Games Crossover Tease Revealed: It’s a Poker Game

Today, we have an answer: A poker game.

  9. The Daily Star Apologizes to Makers of Grand Theft Auto

    Earlier this week The Daily Star made the obviously false (to anyone acquainted with the games industry, photoshop mock-ups, or basic fact checking skills) claim that Rockstar Games would be basing their next Grand Theft Auto game on a recent real life British man who "shot three people, killing one, and was on the run from the police for six days before a standoff with the police in which [he] shot and killed himself." Based simply on a obviously photoshopped image (above) that they claimed was appearing on game sites, they even went so far as to interview the grandmother of one of the victims on her response to Rockstar's non-decision. Well, Rockstar's lawyers been more than earning their keep, as today The Daily Star has issued an incredibly complete and humble apology to the game maker.
