We’ve been hearing about Google’s self-driving cars getting into fender-benders before, mostly at the fault of other vehicles with a human behind the wheel, but recently one of the autonomous vehicles got a bit confused by a cyclist at an intersection. Did the car not recognize the cyclist and almost collide with him? Nope. Turns out the rider was simply … —> Read More

Many of us who grew up in the ’80s and ’90s probably got our first horror movie scares from Wes Craven, the legendary writer and director of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Deadline brings us word that Craven passed away on Sunday at the age of 76 after a battle with brain cancer.
The PC version of Konami’s Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is “stunning” and plays to the strengths of the platform. That’s according to Konami marketing executive Jon Edwards, who talked more about the PC edition of the stealth-action game in a new interview.
“The PC version is stunning,” Edwards told MCV. “We are so pleased to be able to release it alongside the console games, and that Kojima Productions has worked so hard to make it such a strong version.”
The Phantom Pain’s PC edition was originally expected to ship two weeks after the console version, but Konami later brought the date forward to launch the game worldwide on September 1 across all systems. In addition, everyone who preorders The Phantom Pain on PC gets a free copy of Ground Zeroes.
Also in the interview, Edwards explained why he thinks PC is a “perfect fit” for The Phantom Pain.
“Like Ground Zeroes, the graphics are stunning in the new 4K mode, while the scale and online elements within the game are a perfect fit for the format,” he explained. “Metal Gear Solid V is such an entertaining game, we always wanted it to play the strengths of its host format, and the PC edition certainly does that. It is a stunning conversion.”

Earlier this year, Konami announced that it had started development on a new Metal Gear Solid game and was actively recruiting for the project. Meanwhile, series creator Hideo Kojima is expected to exit Konami sometime after The Phantom Pain ships on September 1.
I don’t know why I expected otherwise…
Netflix and cable network Epix no longer see eye to eye and are therefore parting ways. If you’re not a Netlfix subscriber, that statement might mean squat.

A few weeks back, a leading IHS analyst, Pan Juitang had said that the new generation Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 will most likely run on Windows 10 OS and will release sometime in the third quarter of 2015.
Since then, we have heard a couple of times about the new generation model supporting both Windows 10 and Android Operating systems. So, in such a scenario, users can use both Windows 10 as well as MIUI 7 on a single device.
Now, Xiaomi has officially released a new teaser on Weibo, with the words, Xiaomi Mi Pad x 2 = ????. Considering this teaser, it looks like Xiaomi will announce the new Mi Pad 2 tomorrow. Although the “x 2″ in the teaser could mean second generation, but given the way its presented, it may also hint at the possibility of dual OS support.
We have seen small time manufacturers like Teclast, Vido and Ramos highlight dual OS support for their tablets, but major manufacturers still are reluctant to include two different OSes in a machine. So, it would really be exciting to see if Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 provides dual boot support.
However, we may not see the new Mi Pad 2 as early as tomorrow. If we consider the tradition, often the first teasers from Xiaomi are for the date of the launch event. So, tomorrow we may just see an announcement from the company about a new product launch event.
Anyways, this does confirm the existence of a new Mi Pad version. So, lets patiently wait for more information later tomorrow.
The post Xiaomi Mi Pad 2 May Feature Dual OS: Windows 10 + MIUI 7? appeared first on Gizmochina.
Destiny‘s new raid, King’s Fall, won’t be available right away when The Taken King launches on September 15. Creative director Luke Smith says in a new interview that Bungie has a date in mind for when it will make the new raid available, but it won’t be on day one.
“We definitely have a plan for when it’s going to be available,” he told IGN. “I’m not going to announce the plan for it [today at PAX Prime]. “But I promise for people who are excited about the raid will know when it’s time to take time off work. We’ll give em’ a heads up.”
King’s Fall is “objectively and emphatically” Destiny’s biggest raid ever–and has story implications, too.
“It is a journey that we hope players and their friends are going to remember,” Smith said in a previous interview. “We’re really excited about it, and we think it will raise the stakes again for what the raid team is asked to deliver next time. It’s big.”
Bungie has also repeatedly teased that King’s Fall will include something new that the developer has referred to as “special” and a “twist.” Pressed for more details, a Bungie developer said previously, “It’s not just going to be Normal and Hard mode.”
The Taken King makes major changes to the overall Destiny experience, including weapon balance tweaks and lots more. In addition, Bungie will push out a huge update for all systems on September 8; it’s so large that it may make Destiny unplayable on some platforms.
Bungie will share more details on The Taken King this coming Wednesday, September 2, during an hour-long Twitch stream that will focus on the expansion’s new Court of Oryx mode.

Richard Seabrook woke one morning and realised his life wasn’t where he wanted it to be. He was 23 years old, he’d graduated from university and he’d taken a job he thought would lead to his dream career in games. But it hadn’t quite worked out. He was stuck in the British seaside town of Bournemouth, in quality assurance testing, where months were sprawling ominously into years. “You know what?” he said to himself that day. “I’m sick of this. I’m just going to go for it.” He set his sights high: Seabrook wanted to go for a job at Valve. —> Read More
“Rocksteady has finally put the conundrum they themselves created to bed. Their new Batman game, Arkham Knight, proves that there can be too many Batman games. Granted, they have been on a steady decline quality-wise ever since the original, fantastic Arkham Asylum, but the series is far from being considered anything remotely close to bad. But Arkham Knight makes a case for there being too much of something originally unique is also a tiring way of handling a franchise.” – Eduardo Reboucas, Entertainium —> Read More
