Fallout 4 Beta Patch to arrive on Steam next week!

Bethesda has said to expect the first beta patch for Fallout 4 to arrive next week.
 

Originally posted by Bethesda:
“The freedom in our games can lead to unintentional consequences that are sometimes bad, when the game combines too many unexpected elements at once. Given the scale and complexity of the systems at work, especially when allowing you to build your own settlements, and we’d like to thank our amazing QA staff who worked as hard as anyone to break the game so we could fix it during development."


They go on to state that “a hundred testers will never replicate the many millions playing the game now, and we’re (Bethesda) hard at work addressing the top issues."

After the release of the beta patch on Steam, it will be followed by full a release on PC, then on the consoles. Bethesda has asked fans to expect more updates that are smaller but more frequent than a few big ones.

Afro Samurai 2 removed from Steam, with further episodes cancelled

Due to the poor response to the first episode of the serialized action game, Afro Samurai 2 has been removed from Steam.
 

Originally posted by Steve Escalante, Versus Evil general manager:
"We could not do, in good conscience, volume two and volume three. So we’ve begun the process – it’s been a long process to figure it out because Sony has never really had to do this in this way – but we’re returning all the money. So across the board we’re putting out an apology saying ‘sorry about this.’”


Escalante goes as far as to bluntly state that "the game was a failure." He added that "if you look at the reviews, it wasn’t that the game was broken or buggy, people just didn’t like it."

Apart from the above interview with CGM, no announcements have been made on the game's Steam page, neither through the Afro Samurai's official social media channels.

The hype with virtual reality, VR for short, has been at its peak recently, and it's just a matter of time before it the VR hype takes over Steam.

With that, Crytek has taken advantage of the hype to release a free VR demo of Back To Dinosaur Island 
 

Originally posted by Crytek:
“Back to Dinosaur Island has been built from the ground up to take advantage of the Oculus Rift HMD, and requires an Oculus Rift DK 2 device to run.”


Apart from the Oculus Rift devices, you’ll also need a minimum of 16GB RAM, an i7-2600K, GTX 980 or R9 290.

Here's a snippet of what it would look like, but bear in mind it doesn't compare to anything like what an actual VR version of the game would offer, check it out!
