PUBG cheaters are still trying to get away with exploiting the game. The latest cheat is a little sneakier than the auto-aiming, and infinite health-giving hacks of the past. Captured by Reddit user MagicIsBull, this new cheat allows players to instantly heal themselves, in addition to being able to instantly revive friendly players.
Take a look at the cheat below:Comment from discussion PSA: New cheats – Insta rez and meds.
This exploit is harder for enemy players to detect, as a fast revive or heal would largely go unnoticed. Luckily, MagicIsBull was on the ball with this one.
Here’s hoping the developers are quick to enforce a fix, and punish players ruining the game for others.
Creative director Brendan Greene recently tweeted about how his team is working to clamp down on cheaters:
ICYMI on our dev blog in December, we announced we’re working to create a system that will provide a fair gameplay experience for all players. These systems take time to build & implement on the servers without major issues, so please bear with us!https://t.co/oxmuka5OZt pic.twitter.com/yIgjxcEUrD

If you’re a PC gamer with an Nvidia GTX graphics card, then you’ll likely use ShadowPlay to easily capture gameplay highlights and screenshots. ShadowPlay has very little effect on performance, and so is a no-brainer for video creators, or for those who just fancy making some occasional GIFs.
Unfortunately, some users have found ShadowPlay to be inconsistent, regularly exporting gameplay that is choppy, sometimes with artifacts, or a lower-than-normal frame-rate.
I have run into these problems myself, and they actually caused me to switch over to OBS. I couldn’t find an easy solution, and couldn’t dedicate the time to extensive troubleshooting.
Thankfully, YouTuber creator Battle(Non)Sense has done the legwork for us. After suffering with ShadowPlay problems for months, he dedicated part of his weekend to finally solving the issue.
After a lot of cable switching, Battle(Non)Sense concluded that having the primary monitor (on which you game and record) plugged into the port closest to the motherboard, causes corruptions. Plugging your primary monitor into any of the other ports allows ShadowPlay to work without issue.
For a full rundown on all of this, check out Battle(Non)Sense’s video below:
For months I’ve been plagued by corrupted Nvidia ShadowPlay recordings and last weekend I found out why. The reason behind this is just bonkers and it might affect you too!
Have you been plagued by ShadowPlay issues? Will you be trying this fix? Let us know.

Ubisoft has begin rolling out a new Rainbow Six Siege update. Unfortunately, this requires some scheduled downtime, with PC players suffering today, and console players being taken offline tomorrow.
Here’s the schedule for the maintenance taking place on PC, PS4, and Xbox One:
Scheduled Maintenance on Tuesday, January 23rd on PC, and Wednesday, January 24th on console.
PC: 9:00-9:30am EST

As for what Update 4.2 brings to the game, check out the patch note highlights below:
Ela’s SMG will have a reduced magazine size
We have decided to lower the magazine size of her SMG from 50 to 40 bullets.
Game Designer notes: Ela overpowers her competition. Players select her almost every round, and for a good reason. All of the data we have on her (such as win ratio, K/D ratio, and Kills per round) shows that she needs to be nerfed. We have found this to be primarily because of her SMG and to a lesser extent her concussion mines.
The recoil of her SMG was already nerfed slightly with Y2S3.2, but this did not have the impact that we hoped.
For now, we’re trying to balance her while keeping her SMG’s uniqueness, which lets her fight several opponents at a time better than...

Remember when we said that a ton of new free content is making its way to Call of Duty: WWII? Well, that’s happening tomorrow, and it’s set to bring a lot of new changes as well.
First off, prepare for the new Resistance Division, as well as a host of new weapons and equipment to obtain. Customization is also getting some much-needed love as the emblem gallery and paint jobs are set to make their way too!
Here’s what Sledgehammer Games boss Michael Condrey had to say about it the event tomorrow.
The Resistance event begins tomorrow! There’s a lot coming to WWII over the next 5 weeks and Tuesday morning’s update will have a bunch of great new content and ways to play. We’re looking forward to playing with you, and seeing your reaction in game.
The Sledgehammer Games channels will have the full details tomorrow once the update has gone live. A few notable items include a console fix to the spectator bug, the addition of the emblem gallery feature, a tuning change to increase the speed of health regen, and of course, the new Resistance Division and new Resistance themed weapons, including the special weapon orders for directly earning them through match play (fwiw, the...
In case you’d forgotten just how insanely successful the game has become, the new head of Minecraft, Helen Chiang, is here to remind you of its video game world domination.
Speaking with Pop Sugar, Chiang confirmed that over 144 million copies of Minecraft have been sold, across more than a dozen different platforms. The game still remains incredibly popular, with 74 million players coming back to the play the game each month.
“We just recently set a new record in December for monthly active users, so now we’re at 74 million monthly active users — and that’s really a testament to people coming back to the game, whether it’s through the game updates or bringing in new players from across the world … That’s really our goal, to keep building the community that we have.”
As for what’s planned for the game’s future, Chiang laid it out clearly:
“The first [goal] is bringing over more people to Bedrock through Nintendo, and that’s coming out pretty soon. The second is expanding the features in the game that the players love, so we have the update Aquatic coming out pretty soon. The third one is the new graphics engine that we talked about both at MINECON and E3, the superduper graphics pack. They’re all areas that I’m really excited about and that the team is working very hard on.”
So Minecraft is still a gaming monolith, and support continues!
Are you still playing Minecraft? Let us know.
Bungie continues to be incredibly transparent when it comes to what’s planned for Destiny 2 future updates. What was once a long silence coming from the developer, has turned into a vast amount of responses to player questions, and more in-depth discussions on game design.
Of course, communication is just the first step towards improving the Destiny 2, but it’s definitely a good start.
Bungie game director Christopher Barrett has been especially communicative, particular on Twitter.
In response to a player asking about the ability to bulk dismantle all shaders, Barrett said that Bungie will be “posting an article explaining the technical challenge and why [they] haven’t ‘fixed it,’ along with when [players] can expect a solution.”
Please @cgbarrett, a functionality to dismantle all shaders in a single slot. Would save some time…

Call of Duty 2018 developer Treyarch Studios is looking to take on a “world-class, industry leading senior cinematics animator.” This individual will “help inspire the team by creating the highest quality cinematic animation while pushing the boundaries of game play, storytelling, and technology.”
With Treyarch (presumably and hopefully) already well into the development of Call of Duty 2018, it’s unclear if the new cinematics animator will be working on the new CoD. Then again, I’m no expert, and perhaps the cinematics animator is needed to tidy thing up and add some polish during the final year.
Here’s what the role involves, and the skills and experience needed:

Following rumors about a so-called “re-evaluation” of Halo 6 microtransactions and loot boxes, 343 Industries franchise director Frank O’Connor commented on Resetera, eager to debunk the chatter.
Here’s what he said:
This is bunk. We’re not reevaluating anything (significant) and “Microsoft” isn’t designing anything for the next game – 343 is. We watched the EA battlefront thing with the curiosity you’d expect – but our current req system is player focused and well liked and unintrusive as far as these things go.
We have made zero announcements about our next projects and continue to work on our next game and technology with player’s needs and interests in mind.
However the story as loosely presented as it is – has no bearing on or relation to any current efforts.
I suppose you could say “company x is evaluating feature you” and always have some grain of truth, but we are neither aping nor adapting an unrelated system from another game.
This follows an equally vague rumor about an issue with our engine, which in fact is counter to significant ongoing improvements and evolution of our tech.
If there were some nugget of truth to both, I’d just ignore it. Development is rife with normal examples of both of these “stories” but in this case there aren’t even notable small examples that this could have been based on.
Certainly in the future we’ll be evolving our systems and...

It’s Monster Hunter: World release week! After multiple test phases, the game will finally be releasing on January 26, coming to PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version’s launch date is still not confirmed, but players can expect it to be sometime this fall.
Upon booting up the game for the first time, players with an internet connection will find Update 1.01 waiting for them. This 815 MB patch adds a bunch of features to the game, which you can read all about below:

With Monster Hunter World set to come out in just a few days, it seems some people managed to snag an early copy. One of these said people is from forum 4chan, and has even posted the Monster Hunter World Trophies list!
+ 14 other secret trophies
There’s screenshots of various armors and more right here! Be wary though, there’s potential spoilers in it. Overall, the Monster Hunter World Trophies seem to be pretty straightforward and doesn’t entail anyone doing anything ridiculous. Of course, there is the chance that one of the 14 hidden ones fall in that category, but usually those are story related.
Also of note, the sharer mentioned that there is no blood in the full game during combat and just “dust and rocks.” There’s no option to turn it on...
Possibly one of the biggest things that make every yearly Call of Duty title stand out from the first-person shooter pack is how much it allows players to customize and personalize their profiles. There’s gun camos, character skins, and even DIY (do it yourself) emblems, clan tags, and more.
These level of customization is the same in the most recent COD game, Call of Duty: WWII. While there’s a lot of customization options to be had in the game, one option that’s still missing are the paint jobs. Those not familiar with the tool, it allows gamers to be really creative in terms of gun design letting them put on almost conceivable on their guns.
Well, that’s about to change really soon! Over on Twitter, Sledgehammer Games boss Michael Condrey responded to a fan asking when an emblem gallery and paint jobs will make its way to COD: WWII, and the answer is: next week!
Emblem gallery and Paint Job. Vive la résistance!
— Michael Condrey (@MichaelCondrey) January 20, 2018
For those not familiar with what Condrey is referring to, the first expansion pack titled the “Resistance” will be dropping next week, and it’ll kick off the “Resistance Event” that will roll out a new Division, weapons, items and lots more. It will start on January 23 and end on February 27.

Love it or hate it, the Nintendo Labo has got the industry talking. Overall, the Labo’s reception and predicted success has seen Nintendo’s value boosted by $1.4 billion.
Speaking with Time, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime gave a short statement regarding third-party support for the Labo hardware (cardware?):
“While there’s nothing to announce today, certainly if we’re successful with Labo, it can create future opportunities.”
Keeping his comments pretty vague, Fils-Aime went on to explain the current goals of Labo, and where it could eventually go:
“Can [the Toy-Cons] be incorporated into other forms of gameplay? Certainly,” he said. “But right now we think if we effectively communicate the power of the idea with Nintendo Labo [and] really enable players to make their creations, personalize them, and enjoy the [inherent] gameplay experiences… We think that’s going to be a great way to start and then progress down the path.”
I guess Nintendo is waiting to see if Labo explodes in the same way that the Switch did.
Do you think the Nintendo Labo is going to be a big hit? Let us know.
In other Nintendo Switch news, take a look at the Labo reveal trailer here, read about how a German Ratings Board almost chucked the hardware away, and Payday 2 is coming to the console with timed-exclusive content.
If you’ve tried Star Wars Battlefront II‘s “Heroes vs. Villains” mode, chances are you’ll have seen characters spinning around in circles. The players controlling these characters are AFK (away from keyboard/controller), and are exploiting the game to receive easy participation Credits.
The popular tactic means AFK players are essentially ruining the game type, with developer DICE seemingly unable to stop them.
Thankfully, Reddit user viggstable has figured out a way to get AFK players kicked from the game:
Instead of waiting for the game to boot someone who is AFK, all that you need to do is wait in character selection screen for the person who is AFK to die.
As soon as they die select the character that they were playing as and viola.
Now that the AFK person is sent to character selection they will shortly be booted for not selecting a character. Dice fixed the issue of automatically selecting a character after 30 seconds in HVV. The only time character is auto selected is at beginning of a game.
This solution will work best on console versions of Battlefront II, as PC players can employ scripts to switch characters and randomly fire.
Good work, viggstable!

Who doesn’t want a free game, right? What if someone told you that a game company is giving away free digital codes of its biggest game of last year? Well, apparently, that seems to be the case for Call of Duty: WWII!
Over on the Xbox One subreddit, users are reporting that they’ve gotten an email stating that they got a free digital code of COD: WWII from Activision and it works!
Multiple people have chimed in that it works. However, over on the WWII subdreddit, another person called Activision support, and was told there’s no such promotion going on. Check out the chat log below.
There’s a few things to take away from this: first off, Activision Support doesn’t know every promotion, and marketing plan that Activision does, so they might be in the dark when it comes to this one. But on the other hand. it reeks of something too good to be true — especially when you consider that Activision has sold a ton of COD: WWII units! I mean, they don’t need to give it away since people are buying it.
We’ve reached out to Activision and will update...
