It’s not often a game comes along that keeps me intrigued to the point of obsession. One of the latest titles to do so is a game called SCUM, and it’s currently available to play via Steam’s Early Access.
Ahead of the game’s launch next week, THQ has dropped the Darksider’s 3 opening cinematic to prepare you for the coming apocalypse with some plot exposition and and an introduction to the “most impatient” of the horsemen, and maybe that’s because nobody on the Charred Council even acknowledges her as a horsewoman and you’d expect that a celestial mediation court would have this kind of thing worked by the end of everything but whatever. You show them, Fury. YOU SHOW THEM.
It’s been a tough year for Crystal Web. Once named the best ISP in the country in 2015 according to a MyBroadband survey, the company has been beset by issues in the past couple of months. Earlier this year, the company featured in headlines regarding a sustained, weeks-long DDoS attack that rendered the connections of most customers unusable. Over a month ago, customers began complaining once more about the company’s service, as masses of customers leasing ADSL and fibre lines operated by OpenServe through the company saw their accounts suspended and connections rendered unusable. There are rumours of financial mismanagement, bankruptcy, and incompetence being shared on the local web, and customers are frustrated with the lack of an explanation as to what happened.

Shuttleworth announced that Ubuntu LTS releases would now be supported with security updates for up to ten years, matching Microsoft’s Windows 10 Long-Term Servicing Channel offering. This is big news for the Linux community.
With hyperbeam tubenet technologies making videotron laserdiscs increasingly irrelevant, Microsoft is apparently working on a new, cheaper model of its Xbox One gamestation consolematic without the Blu-ray drive-matrix interface decoderware.
Hello and welcome to Mosh Pit. It’s a short episode this week, but we’ve still got some neat stuff to look at. The Crimes of Grindelwald is showing in cinemas this weekend, and if you’re not heading out to watch that then you’re probably playing Fallout 76 with your buddies, racing to level 5 to see who can kill each other first. Competition’s healthy, ain’t it? Also, Astro wants $200 for a game controller.
For the first time since the expo’s 1995 debut, Sony won’t be hosting its annual hype conference at E3 or even attending the convention, citing a refocus on other, for the moment unspecified “inventive opportunities” instead.
