  1. China intensifies Internet censorship ahead of military paradeSun, 30 Aug 2015 20:29:58 -0700
    As China prepares to celebrate a new national holiday, the country has been tightening its grip over the Internet by squelching online rumors, and cracking down on tools that can circumvent its censorship. On Sunday, China's Ministry of Public Security said it punished 197 people for allegedly spreading misinformation over local social media and messaging services. The rumors covered controversial topics including the financial woes of the Shanghai stock market and the recent explosion in the Chinese city of Tianjin. One rumor, for instance, claimed that more than 1,300 people had died in the blast at Tianjin, when the official toll puts the figure at over 140.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

A few are job-related sites.Batches of stolen information were found on a server by the companys analysts, said Alex Holden, Hold Securitys founder and CTO.

  4. Minecraft: Story Mode hands-on: This one's for the fansSun, 30 Aug 2015 08:16:00 -0700
    I didnt know what to expect from Telltales latest game, Minecraft: Story Mode, because I never expected Minecraft: Story Mode to exist. Like The Lego Movie or the film adaptation of Battleship, its a weird enigmaa story created from something inherently story-less (or at least story-light). After playing about fifteen minutes of Minecraft: Story Mode at PAX, I have come to one conclusion though: This is a game for Minecraft fans, not Telltale fans.Inside jokes Its an important distinction to make, because I feel like previous Telltale games have been pretty approachable even to those who werent fans of the source material. I didnt care at all about The Walking Dead before playing Telltales game. I only knew bits and pieces of Fables before trying Wolf Among Us.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
  5. RollerCoaster Tycoon World preview: A wild(ly easy to get into) rideSun, 30 Aug 2015 07:40:00 -0700
    Its semi-inevitable when previewing a game that your brain will end up drawing links to similar titles, whether you want it to or not. Thus Singularity gets likened to BioShock, The Witcher 3 gets compared to Dragon Age: Inquisition, and Shadow of Mordor is put up against Assassins Creed.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
  6. Microsoft may offer some Windows 10 patch notes to enterprisesSat, 29 Aug 2015 14:23:47 -0700
    IT administrators may get more information than originally planned about Windows 10 patches, as Microsoft ponders how much to tell business customers about modifications to the new OS."We've heard that feedback from enterprise customers so we're actively working on how we provide them with information about what's changing and what new capabilities and new value they're getting," Jim Alkove, a vice president in the Windows group,said during a press briefing.It's a change in tone for the company, which previously said that it wouldn't provide detailed information about most Windows 10 patches. That original plan was bad news for IT managers and users who want to know what an update does before they install it. This is more of an issue now that Microsoft is supposed to release more frequent updates over the lifetime of Windows 10, as part of its "Windows as a service" plans, than it did for previous editions of Windows.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...

  8. Homefront: The Revolution hands-on: The revolution might be sanitizedSat, 29 Aug 2015 11:50:00 -0700
    Its been over a year since Ive seen Homefront: The Revolution, and the games been through hell since then. Last year this was a Crytek game. Then Crytek, who bought the rights from a bankrupt THQ a few years back, started having similar money issues and after losing some key creatives, Deep Silver basically bought out both the Homefront rights and the entirety of Cryteks UK studio. And now here we are. All for a sequel to a game thats legendarily mediocre. The video game industry is strange.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here More...
