More and more we are seeing games eschew the standard publishing model and turn to crowd funding. Whether Kickstarter, Indiegogo or Fig; fans are funding projects that the larger developers feel are too niche or risky to produce. One such game recently released after a successful Kickstarter campaign, The Dwarves developed by KING Art Games and published by Nordic THQ. Based on a fantasy novel of the same name it released fifteen months after the launching of the campaign. Warning the following will contain plot spoilers.
In June of 2012 Ubisoft announced Watch Dogs with the promise that you could hack the world. Sadly the game failed to live up to that promise and the hacking turned into timed button presses to stop a helicopter or prevent someone from calling the cops on you. Then during E3 of 2016 the sequel was officially unveiled after years of rumors. Ubisoft promised to do better with this game, they brought on people to act as hacking consultants. The following will contain plot spoilers for the game.
Do you have a favorite movie you watch over and over again to the point it's become more than a little OCD? If you haven't thought of it already, you might consider converting it to more than one format. That way, you can watch it on the road, at the Doctor's office, at work on lunch, family dinners and even at the movies. Furthermore, chances are you have more than one media player. Among the players available, few if any have a common format. If you are a true fanatic and must have your obsession on every one of them, then WinXDVD is probably a bit of software you should be interested in. Even if you're only interested in copying a movie to your psp or to an .avi file, you'll probably want to read on about it too.
