Daily News - 24th November 2011 - Retarded Splinter Cell Trilogy Patch, 3DS "Join Game" and The Unlimited Detail Engine

Splinter Cell Trilogy Gets Important Patch - Inverted Aiming

In what has to be the stupidest thing I've heard for a while, the much "meh"ed by the world Splinter Cell Trilogy (a collection for then PS3 which contains Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell Pandora, and Splinter Cell Chaos Theory) has been patched, and players' prayers have been aswered, as FINALLY, the game received the option to invert your controls!!! You can see why this would be worthy of the top spot of today's news, this is the kind of story that comes along once in a lifetime... truly, this is the future.

NOW YOU CAN PUSH THE STICK UP AND THE RETICLE WILL GO DOWN! MADNESS!

3DS Firmware Adds "Join Game" Function

Last week, alongside the release of Super Mario 3D Land, Nintendo released a firmware update that adds the ability to join a friend's online game in progress. The first game that will use it will be Mario Kart 7 and it works. Considering this feature is coming to a Nintendo console, this is pretty exciting, and despite being a tiptoe in the right direction, definitely bodes well for the company's online future.


Euclideon's "Unlimited Detail" Engine Explored

The "Unlimited Detail" engine is something that has been around for a while now. The first video showing off the system (which I'll embed below) had alot of people shouting "scam" at the time, and even some well-respected game designers weren't believers, but according to GameInformer (who got an exclusive look at the demo) the hype is to be believed. If you watch the video and are fascinated, then go look at GameInformer's article, seems like pretty exciting stuff for the years ahead!



And Finally...
