11,000+ CS:GO Players on VAC-ation

 

Today is a good day for honest players and a horrid day for cheaters. Lately it seems that Valve has been cleaning up the streets. A few months ago Twitch prohibited non-csgo gameplay on streams, Valve cracked down hard on the online gambling phenomenon and very recently over 11,000 hackers have been banned by VAC. If you aren't too familiar with how VAC works, they usually gather information for delayed bans so it is harder for cheaters to catch on. 

The nice folks over at Kotaku were able to dig up some interactions from the cheat providers to their customers:

This is a good step towards fairer gaming but these cheat developers will also grow and adapt, it's just up to Valve's Anti-Cheat to stay on top of their game. I play a lot of CS:GO so this information is juicy to me, I love that Valve is at least attempting to keep their game from being infested by cheaters. 

 

Remember guys, cheating is no fun and you will be caught eventually. 

 

GeForce Experience 3.0 - 3x Faster, 50% Less Memory Usage and Giveaways?!

 

Just released last week was the new GeForce Experience 3.0, this new update will bring better optimization and some new features. The most noteworthy thing is the implementation of giveaways. Nvidia will be offering beta keys, game keys and hardware just for using the new GeForce experience. 

This new makeover will be a lot faster and easier to use. The previous renditions were slightly bulky and not 100% smooth. Nvidia has reduced the footprint of the program and it will now use less of your computers resources when active. As always, GeForece Experience will automatically adjust your game settings based on the hardware you have in your system and they have made this easier to use. You will now be able to optimize your games easily with a click of a button. 

Shadowplay has also been updated, you will be able to record games at up to 60fps, 4k and in windowed mode. These clips can be uploaded straight to media platforms so you can share them with your friends a lot sooner. You can even upload to Imgur without leaving the game "and let a friend jump into your game via Chrome to either watch, take control of your character, or play in co-op." 

Click here to get the latest GeForce Experience!

5 Days Until Legion Arrives!

 

It's been a fairly long wait but in 5 days time we will have the latest World of Warcraft expansion. I don't know about you but I'm all sick of doing demon invasions and ready for the new content. Based on all the content and news so far this is likely going to be a huge makeover for the game. I've had the chance to check out the pre-patch and many things are completely redesigned. For the PVE players there will be plenty of new dungeons and raids available. On the PVP side of things we will be getting a prestige system with  some neat features. For those who want to start getting into PVP, they have removed the gear advantage. In addition, a new wardrobe system was implemented for all players. 

 

 

There will likely be a huge wave of Demon Hunters at launch just like when Death Knights were released in WotLK. While the 2 previous expansion had somewhat of a nonlinear story line, Legion will be continuing the legacy of Illidan and the Burning Legion. Burning Crusade was a great expansion in my opinion and I do hope Legion will be able to top it.
