Daily News - 11th November 2011 - God Of War 4, Modern Warfare 3 and More!

God Of War 4 Is A Thing That's Happening

So it appears that soon, we will be subjected to quite a bit more of Kratos' ultimate hatred for all things that exist, as an unnamed retailer is alleged to have listed the 4th game in the series for a September 2012 release, complete with logo! (Which for me, gives this rumour some actual weight) I hear that God Of War 3 ended with, well, let's just say, not too many gods left (unsurprisingly!) so it will be interesting to see who Kratos' targets are, but either way alot of people are gonna be really happy at this announcement, me included!

Looks legit to me!

Call Of Duty Elite Having Some Trouble

Call Of Duty Elite, the service Activision hope you will sink your money into to become better at Call Of duty's multiplayer, has had a bit of a rocky start. The service wasn't available on day one, and since then demand for the service has meant that it hasn't been at all stable, being intermittent at best. Activision say that they intend to have it up and running properly soon, and that as a sorry, all subscribers will get a free extra added 30 days of membership. Better than nothing.

Get better! For money! But not right now.... they're working on it

Steam's Forums And More Hacked

Steam's forums were hacked a few days ago. It didn't seem like a huge deal at the time, but Gabe Newell sent out a letter yesterday that it may have been a bit more thorough than we first anticipated:

"We learned that intruders obtained access to a Steam database in addition to the forums. This database contained information including user names, hashed and salted passwords, game purchases, email addresses, billing addresses and encrypted credit card information. We do not have evidence that encrypted credit card numbers or personally identifying information were taken by the intruders, or that the protection on credit card numbers or passwords was cracked. [though obviously, keep an eye out!] While we only know of a few forum accounts that have been compromised, all forum users will be required to change their passwords the next time they login. If you have used your Steam forum password on other accounts you should change those passwords as well.

We are not planning to force a change of Steam account passwords, however, it wouldn't be a bad idea to change that as well, especially if it is the same as your Steam forum account password. I am truly sorry this happened, and I apologize for the inconvenience."

So maybe change your Steam password and keep a cheeky eye on your bank account. Darn hackers, of all the people to pick on, why Valve? They're so awesome!

You can't see it, but Bald Guy is crying

Star Trek Online Finally Going Free In January

Free MMOs, is one of my favourite trends of this year so far, I love free things and I love levelling up. Know what else I love? Fucking spaceships! So Star Trek Online going free-to-play is a pretty good thing in my eyes. Not long to wait now either, as in January the S.S Banter will emerge from it's spaceport to whip some Borg ass! Yessssssssssss!

Oh god yes! Give it to me!!
