No one likes going back to work after Christmas. The early mornings, the ever-disappointing trains and having to deal with hordes of perpetually grumpy commuters... it all sucks.

Battlefield 1 Beta Brought Down By DDoS Attack

The beta of Battlefield 1 [official site] was shut down on its first day by a group pummeling EA’s servers with a denial of service attack.

Nexus Mods Possibly Hacked, Fallout 4 Mods Altered

Happy bloody Christmas. We should probably take this as a reminder to go and change our passwords on everything, and make sure no two sites or services have the same login, I guess. At the very least, we need new passwords for Nexus Mods, the site which has long hosted a gazillion mods for 216 games, particularly Bethesda RPGs - including Fallout 4, which has…

Time For New Passwords: Kickstarter Hacked

A quick public service announcement for those of our readers who have a Kickstarter account. If you're a registered user of the crowdfunding site, an email should have arrived informing of a hack that occurred on Wednesday night.

Uh-oh. Eurogamer are reporting that a number of people have woken up this morning to find that their EA Origin account has been hacked.

Left 4 Dead Demo Contains Playable Infected

A couple of interesting hacks have appeared for the Left 4 Dead demo. People have found a way to get at the splitscreen mode, intended only for the 360 version, and more interestingly, how to play as the Infected. It's important to note that the latter isn't a way to get Versus mode in the demo - instead it's a very choppy console-command-led method that…
