2K Games thinks you’re a moron

NBA 2K19 developer 2K asked players to “contact local government” about the Belgian loot box ban. One of the 2K’s senior producers told Trusted Reviews (via PCGamesN) that its games’ Virtual Currency “is an unfortunate reality of modern gaming.”

We all know that loot boxes in games are literally like playing in casino but at least in casion you have a chance to gain some cash, in gaming buying textures and sounds for really big amount of money is becoming the norm and gives you nothing, well maybe a kickass skin but you know what I mean.

2K senior producer Rob Jones says that “every game, at some point, in some way has currency and they’re trying to get additional revenue from each player that plays the game.”

Changes in NBA 2K19 are trying to reward players for spending Virtual Currency more often, says Jones, and will better identify what’s worth spending Virtual Currency on in the first place – whatever that means.

The guy literally says that it’s up to you if you want to grind for a specific item or buy it straight away. He adds: “We know nowadays that most people don’t have the patience to work their way to the top. They just wanna be there right away. So, you know, we look at it as, oh it’s an opportunity for us to allow you to skip the grind, but then if the grind is too long, like some people felt last year, they’re gonna sit there and they’re gonna go ‘well, you knew the grind was too long to begin with.”

Is he literally trying to sell cheats? Remember… those cheat codes back in 90’s and early 00’s? What the actual fuck.

Red Dead Redemption 2 coming to PC

Y’all probably heard of that LinkedIn leak, right? Some guy working for Rockstar Games admitted on his profile that he worked on the PC version of RDR2 – it has been confirmed by the mods of Red Dead Redemption subreddit. It’s just a matter of time until we see the official announcement because you know they gotta milk the consoles first, then the next-next-gen consoles (2020?) and probably we’ll get the improved version of the game by then on the PC.

Is it worth the wait? I think it is, will we play it on the current gen consoles first though? I think most of us are going to do that, even if they have to buy the console especially for RDR2, I guess I’m gonna have to buy the Xbox One X now (check out the enhanced RDR on the console). At least it runs kind of good comparing to the standard consoles. Also they are bringing native mouse and keyboard suport to Xbox so that might be the cheapest portable gaming computer soon. We’ll see because Microsoon

 

Steam: Developer & publisher pages now in beta

Steam introduced the Creator Homepages (currently in beta). It should players to discover and connect with new and existing developers. You can follow the developers and publishers or even get notified of any changes in their catalogs. That’s pretty neat!

How does it work?

  • Any developer or publisher on the platform can now set up a customized homepage to showcase their full catalog of titles and content. Once set up, these homepages can be found by clicking on the developer or publisher name from the store page of your favorite games.
  • On the homepages, you’ll find lists of top-selling or new released titles from that developer / publisher.
  • A studio might divide its games into collections by genre or franchise, or could choose to highlight their fan-favorite or top-selling games.
  • Regardless of how each developer or publisher chooses to customize their homepage, you can easily follow them to be notified when they release their next title or post an announcement. Newly released titles from developers or publishers that you follow will show up at the top of your Steam homepage and we’ll send you an e-mail to let you know that they’ve released something new (as with other Steam e-mail notifications, you can opt out at any time by visiting your e-mail preferences page).

Looking for more details?

Will GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) affect Steam?

The GDPR regulation is almost here. After May 25th all companies that opearate in European Union are bound to respect the new laws and our privacy.

Steam is going to need to get consent from EU individuals to obtain and store personally identifying information (like name, address, phone number, email etc). This should be performed by having a user “opt in” as under the GDPR regulations “consent cannot be assumed”. From now on every single company has to communicate in a clear and understandable way why the want our data and what are they going to do with it (or won’t do), how they protect it, where do they keep it etc.

Steam GDPR, Steam alternatives

If you’re an EU citizen here are your GDPR rights:

  • Ask what information is held on you and obtain copies of your information

  • Ask if your data has been passed to any other 3rd party or affiliate and obtain their details

  • Right to be forgotten – Request that all (or some) data be removed from their system

There is no guarantees that Steam will abide those rules. Most large companies and data controllers like Google or Amazon have only chosen to update their Privacy Policies, which is not 100% GDPR compliant. We’ll see how this turns out in the following weeks.

Speaking of, our website also gathers some data like cookies, e-mail accounts (if you’ve ever join one of our giveaways, newsletter or simply left a comment etc.). From now on when you login to your account on SteamUnpowered you will have to Agree to Terms of Use Agreement & Privacy Policy. Newsletter always worked as opt in so if you’ve already signed-up for it you can always unsubscribe (look for that option at the bottom of the newsletter).

From now on you can also remove the data you’ve put in here by going into Tools>Erase personal data. To delete your account from SteamUnpowered simply go to your profile settings. If you have any other problem please send me a message on Steam.

Microsoft Store: Cloud saves corrupted? You’re out of luck!

There’s a pretty interesting topic on /r/windows10 today. Someone is having problems with Superhot VR edition. Basically his savegame got corrupted somehow and unfortunately the broken file is already up in the cloud.

What doest that mean? According to Microsoft support you have to “play the game again”. Ouch.

On Steam whenever you’re having problems with syncing your saved games the program actually asks you if you want to use the local saved games or the cloud ones. But not on Microsoft store, if something goes wrong you’re screwed.

You can read more about this problem here and see more of those screenshots here.

Unreal Engine 4: Paragon content released for FREE!

I’ve always liked Paragon, since the early beta that I’ve tried, it’s basically a MOBA game in 3rd person created by Epic Games, the creators of the good old Unreal and Unreal Tournament series. Turns out Epic is now shutting down Paragon (we’ve known this for a while now…) and recently they’ve decided to update the Unreal Engine with content from Paragon absolutely for FREE!

Paragon cancelled

Epic Games has released twelve million dollars of content from Paragon, Epic’s high-end action MOBA, for free to all Unreal Engine 4 developers. The assets encompass 20 AAA-quality characters and over 1,500 environment components from Paragon.

You can grab the Paragon content by going here and read what’s new in the latest Unreal Engine 4 update here. More Unreal Engine news coming today on GDC 2018. More info on the official website – watch the official YouTube channel.
