Deus Ex: Mankind Divided Augmented With First Patch

Deus Ex: Mankind Divided [official site] has received its first patch-me-do, now ready to be added via Steam. It's not a biggun by any means, but should stop some of the more immediately annoying crashes people have experienced. They've also made some suggestions about improving performance by, well, telling you to switch off MSAA altogether.

Witcher 3 Patch Notes: Gravity Will Apply To All Horses

"Various improvements to horse behavior". That was a patch note Marsh showed me last week. I had hoped it was one of God's own patch notes and He was finally going to address the problems with those four-legged jerks but apparently it was CD Projekt Red talking about The Witcher 3 [official site] and the upcoming 1.07 patch. Disappointing.

Battlefield 4 Spring Patch Will Add Guns, Guns, Guns

It’s no surprise to see DICE continue to support Battlefield 4[official site]. If you compare its stats with those of the more recently released Battlefield Hardline, it’s clear BF4 is the PC owner’s Battlefield of choice. With the upgrades made in the upcoming Spring Patch, releasing “late May”, those players will probably be sticking around a while longer.  With rebalanced weapons across the board, this…

Dote Night: Poking At Patch 6.84

Part of a miscellany of serious thoughts, animal gifs, and anecdotage from the realm of MOBAs/hero brawlers/lane-pushers/ARTS/tactical wizard-em-ups. One day Pip might even tell you the story of how she bumped into Na’Vi’s Dendi at a dessert buffet cart. THIS WEEK, however, she will be picking through the mango-infested lands of patch 6.84 Tis patch time in Dota 2 land – the patch notes for…

Dragon Age: Inquisition Patch Ups The Banter

I was reading through Dragon Age: Inquisition's 1.03 patch notes for the information on how the banter system has changed. I haven't actually got to Inquisition yet in my playing of the series so I was kind of peeking but trying to squint so I could look away at the first sign of a spoiler* without having accidentally read the whole thing. The banter change…

The Crew Getting Day 1 Patch, Fixes – Er – Crews

As an act of hubris, it was a pretty bold one. The Crew's lead designer, Serkan Hasan, told The Metropolist that he was "confident in the stability of the game and its performance," and that his team "have what it takes to make [this] a successful launch." These are words I don't expect we'll hear uttered again from anyone for a good long while. What…

Clockwork Empires Fixes Corpses, Hunger, Fishpeople

It's a good day for lovers of silly patch notes. First, Dwarf Fortress - ever the best source for strange bugs and changes - tweeted to say that you no longer needed to soap your eyes. Then an update for Clockwork Empires - a Lovecraftian town management sim with more than a little Dwarf Fortress in its DNA - came with tales of angry fishpeople.…

Dote Night: Autumn/Winter 6.82

Part of a miscellany of serious thoughts, animal gifs, and anecdotage from the realm of MOBAs/hero brawlers/lane-pushers/ARTS/tactical wizard-em-ups. One day Pip might even tell you the story of how she bumped into Na'Vi's Dendi at a dessert buffet cart. As Dota enthusiasts and experts pick through the 6.82 patch notes and ponder their implications this seems like an EXCELLENT opportunity to flesh out a talk…

Self-Replicating Babies: Sims 4 Patch Note Fun Begins

"Stopped vampires from pinning their crimes on babies and children." You don't need to play Dwarf Fortress to enjoy a changelog note like that. Simulations encouraging emergent gameplay lead to emergent bugs, weird and wonderful confluences of complexities. The Sims 4 might not have dwarves, vampires, goblins, kidnapping, or horseshoe crab people, but its zany take on everyday life evidently can still bring some fun…

Dota 2 Patch Tidies Up In Time For The International

To illustrate how delightful/horrifying (delete according to taste) Dota 2's complexity is, I like to point to patch notes. Dota 2 and its monozygotic mod twin are still being balanced after a decade, with small changes coalescing into big effects on how we play the game. Have a gander at the changelog for Friday's sizeable Spring Cleaning update, which affects almost every hero and lots…

Total War: Rome 2 Patches Fix Bugs, Add Steam Workshop

When Total War: Rome 2 entered the gladiatorial arena of Adam's Wot I Think, he found it easy to love, but knocked it to its knees for its crashes, bugs and AI idiosyncrasies. A portion of the audience have been calling for its thumbs-down slaughter ever since. Creative Assembly have spent the time since release putting the game through a series of training montages, so…
