Halo: The Master Chief Collection is a big collection, both in size of the games and in the games themselves. With the Halo 1 Remaster, a Halo 2 Remaster, and Halo 3 and 4 with minor improvements (all games running at 1080p and 60fps, sans Halo 2 which runs at 1328x1080 and 60fps). Unfortunately, with such a big collection, it requires a lot of space and a ~45GB Blu-ray disc isn't going to cut it. However, instead of doing the logical thing and including 2 discs, a multiplayer and a singleplayer, 343 Industries has decided to make a mandatory release-day update that is 20GB. This patch unlocks multiplayer maps as well as a few other addons to the game.
Luckily, you'll stay have access to singleplayer as the update downloads so you aren't stuck with a brick while waiting, and those who pre-order the game can start preloading the update a few days before release.
As stated, there is no announced platform or even a release window.

You, are Bread.
Project Cars, the cool ass "next-gen" realistic-looking racing simulator, has been delayed from November 2014 to March 20, 2015. According to forum posts from Project Cars site, the reason for the delay is because "This delay has come about because a couple of other big games have announced they are shipping around the same time as our planned first date."
The studio released an official statement regarding the delay:
EDIT: It should be noted that March 20th is the release date for the PC/PS4/Xbox One versions, the Wii U version still has no confirmed release date.
If you've ever heard of the Postal series and enjoy completely senseless violence, Hatred, an upcoming game by Destructive Creations, should be on your radar. The developers have just released a trailer for the game and its contents resulted quite a negative stir, so much so that Epic Games wants their Unreal Engine logo removed from it - somewhat understandable considering the fact that it's practically a minute and a half of mindeless carnage. If you're underage, easily offended or squeamish, you probably shouldn't watch the video above.
What's your take on the game and its premise? Do you think Destructive Creations are crossing the line with this one? The game is certainly in bad taste, but at the end of the day, it's just a game, isn't it? Post your thoughts!
The PS4, much like the Xbox One and the Wii U, launched with only rudimentary functionality and a promise of new features to be introduced in the future. The gamers have spoken and Sony listened to their pleas - firmware 2.0 has a lot of new functionality to offer and it's coming soon to your PS4 system, including a USB media player, custom themes, enhanced voice commands and numerous improvements. The full change log can be found below.
USB Music Player: PS4 owners can play their own music in the background while playing a game using USB Music Player*. After inserting a USB stick loaded with music into the PS4, a new option for USB Music Player will appear. Supported filename extensions include MP3, MP4, M4A, and 3GP.
Change colors: In addition to the ability to add a theme, PS4 owners can also change the background of the home screen from light blue to one of seven new colors: gold, blue, red, green, purple, pink, and gray.
Players You May Know: PS4 will now suggest players you may know as potential friends in the ‘What’s New’ section.
Enhancements to Live Broadcasting: Masamune brings a variety of improvements to live broadcasting on PS4. In the Live From PlayStation app, PS4 owners can now select a Featured channel, which includes official broadcasts from PlayStation, broadcasts from people on a players friend list, and any game channel that the player has followed. Additionally, Live From PlayStation now has filters for searching broadcasts on a specific game, as well as support for archived broadcasts.
Content Area and Library: PS4’s Content Area, which shows the latest games and apps a PS4 owner has used, has been redesigned to help make it easier to quickly find and access content. It now shows 15 of a player’s most used apps or games, and additional items will be added to a player’s Library. The Library on PS4 has improved filter and sort functions to help organize contented by type (game / app / TV & video), name (a – z or z – a), recently used, or install date.
Enhanced Voice Commands: The ability to control PS4 using voice has been improved. Players can now say ‘PlayStation’ to begin commands, and ‘All Commands,’ to see a list of all voice command options available. New voice commands were added for live broadcasting, including “Start broadcast,” “End broadcast,” and “Find face.”
Add To Library: The monthly free PlayStation Plus games will have an ‘Add to Library’ button in the PlayStation Store. This button will add a game to a PS4 owner’s library without downloading it – saving space on their hard drive.
Goodbye academia, it was a pleasure getting to know you. There's been a lack of food for thought pieces lately, and I felt like it'd be fun to just have a post like this because it's been everywhere the past couple of days. It's definitely not a secret that I enjoy playing games from Nintendo - they're good, shameless fun. Who would have guessed a Pokémon drawing game could be so entertaining? *wink* It's also not a secret that I'm a fan of Pokémon, and it's definitely known that I loved Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire as a child. That was the big thing for me growing up - ten years old, starting a journey. It felt real because I actually was understanding what was going on, instead of defaulting on Hyper Beam because it looked cool. So cue my surprise back in May, when it's announced that Ruby and Sapphire were being remade into Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. We'll go a bit deeper, but I must warn you, if you're afraid for spoilers, this might be an article you might want to pass up on.
