So follow along below as our host, Tiffany, helps us through yet another hectic week of tech news.
WCCFtech Weekly Review, Batman Edition.
A lot of things happened this week in tech that were pretty significant, but we didn’t want to make a two-hour long movie for you to watch (feature-film coming 2018) so we’ve condensed it all into a nice overview of five of the biggest articles in the tech industry. This week we talk about the massive Fallout 4 leaks that occurred, spoiling the story, Batman Arkham Knights performance deep dive, the announcement of AMD’s Crimson driver, the huge growth in revenue by NVIDIA in PC Gaming and a new, very nasty, Android malware that may be impossible to remove, aside from destruction of your device.
Oh, don’t forget that it’s N7 day today, so pay tribute to Commander Shepherd and the crew of the Normandy for their sacrifices for Humanity. Or just go back and play through some of the most memorable and iconic games ever created. We even gave Mass Effect high praise as we sought to review it once again, this many years from release.
Stories covered this week:
A huge swath of gameplay details and in-game screenshots for Fallout 4 have just leaked on the web, and we’ve gathered them all in one place. This title is Bethesda Game Studios’ latest and largest project yet following the massively successful open world fantasy role playing game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Which sold over 20 million copies, according to the latest public tally by the company.
Batman Arkham Knight has be re-released on the PC once again after having been pulled from all sales platforms due to performance issues that had been reported a large number of users. PC sales were suspended until it was finally brought back by WB Games and Rocksteady Studios, who were confident it would be well received, though this re-release was also met with some skepticism and even angst as it also didn’t quite run as smooth as some expected.
A few days ago, we detailed the latest AMD Radeon Software Crimson edition drivers which get rid of the old Catalyst Control Center and ushers a new era for AMD drivers. Today, a leak by Zolkorn reveals that the driver is headed for its public launch on 24th of November which is three weeks from now and users on the Radeon team should definitely be excited for the new software as it brings not only an advanced look to the software side but also packs tons of features which are detailed below.
NVIDIA has announced their financial analyst results for third quarter of the fiscal year 2016 and the highlight of the earnings over at green team is once again the strong lead in the gaming department. While we are going to post a detail post on the results later on, it should be highlighted that the major driver for NVIDIA in their Q3 revenue was the growth of the GeForce gaming market with strong products and support for the latest and up coming AAA titles.
Google joined hands with different manufacturers to bring security patches for Android devices the world over that are delivered on a monthly basis. But while the initiative is all well and good, it’s worth noting at this point that ill-intentioned individuals are doing all they can to make sure that they break past the security measures put in place to harvest as much personal information they can from a user, or target them using adware. Case in point, a new type of adware has been discovered in a wild, and it’s so nasty that it forces a user to buy a brand new phone if they’re willing to get rid of it for good.
