Watch_Dogs already treading upon thin ice with gamers

Rumblings are starting to appear online about some troubling features within Ubisoft’s Watch_Dogs - including this, which penalises you heavily if you choose to switch off the “Online Invasions” mode. This is sure to piss off a whole heap of gamers. How about you?


We reckon it won’t be too long post-release before this gets patched with the quickness.

Stay tuned. More as we get it.

BioWare analyzed player data from Mass Effect 3 to determine the most popular names for Commander Shepard. The most common choices by far were the defaults, John and Jane, but for those players who ventured off the beaten path, these were the top five names for each gender.

April Ryan actress needs help with medical bills

Please read and share, thank you.
_____________________________


The Longest Journey and Dreamfall are among some of the finest adventure games ever to be released.  They are well-written, excellently produced and full of wonderful, memorable characters that have lived with us long since the games have been finished.

One character, most of all, has our attention. April Ryan.

Winner of numerous character awards, April remains one of the shining examples of a strong, female lead in gaming. April’s values, choices, decisions and thoughts guided us through remarkable scenes and engaging interactions.

Even in 2014, April remains a shining example of females leads done right, and stands hands and shoulders over any Niln, Aveline and Chell.

So it distresses us that the actress who helped bring April Ryan to life through her voice, Sarah Hamilton, has fallen on hard times.

In 2002, she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. 18 months later, she was also diagnosed with Stage 2 Parotid Gland Cancer. And as if that wasn’t enough, she had a completely extruded disc in her back in 2010 that needed to be operated on and in 2013, she had to have an operation on her hand due to a ruptured tendon.

Her medical bills are astronomic and she has very little work coming in. So Sarah has finally gone public and admitted help, setting a $24,000 target on gofundme, in a plea for help.

The good news? The Longest Journey community have come out in force and donated extremely generously. Sarah has thanked them personally in the guise of April Ryan, but there is still money needed to be raised.

If you’re like me, a huge fan of the series, you should check this out and get involved. Sarah breathed life into a rich, compelling character that has stood the test of time. It has been incredible to see the wide world thank Sarah personally by donating to her cause. There’s only a small amount left, it would be a shame to see Sarah not reach her target.

Please share this on your pages and help us spread the word - let’s give something back to someone who has given so much to us and now needs our help, thank you.
