Aliens: Colonial Marines’ Stupid AI Was Caused by a Single Typo
The modder who found that typo showed up on ars. Their [urlhttps://arstechnica.com/gaming/2018/07/a-years-old-one-letter-typo-led-to-aliens-colonial-marines-awful-ai/?comments=1&post=35664973]first comment[/url] explains why it might not have been caught, but the second one goes into more depth:

Practically 99% of the media coverage of this are either misleading or outright lying. Mostly thanks to them not having any clue what they are talking about.

Take the PC Gamer article with the before and after gifs. These Gifs do not show really show scenarios where tethering would come into play.

DOA6 Features Smaller Boobs So the Women "Appear More Human," Says Director

In an interview with Gamespot, Dead or Alive 6 Director Yohei Shimbori revealed why the game’s female characters won’t be oversexed: "The boobs are smaller as opposed to before because we wanted the girls to appear more human. We don't want to reshape them smaller or larger just on a whim." Old-school fans, including well-endowed women, are calling this a clear case of body shaming.

I think it's kinda sad that grown men feel upset about virtual boobs being made more realistic. :lol:

For a brief period of time, the developer said, her CEO was ready to tell her boss to fire her. Then, another employee realized something was amiss with the letters. “Fifty or so of them glitched out with a lot of variables exposed, including %FEMALENAME,” said the developer. This made it clear that the letters were simply form letters with blank spaces for the name of any woman that the mob wanted to attack.

A deeper look at the names and emails associated with the letters went to Facebook bot profiles and people whose profiles indicated associations with Gamergate or 4chan.

Sorensen outlined his problem: THQ had a team making a fascinating game in Ukraine called Stalker: Shadow of Chernobyl. The game was dark and massive, set around the twisted disaster zone of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant. It was part shooter, part role-playing game, part eerie open-world sandbox adventure. But Stalker was overdue, long overdue, and Sorensen needed someone on the ground out there to finish it - someone in Ukraine to be THQ personified, day in day out, doing whatever it took to get the game done.

Professional Fortnite Players Resurrect the 4:3 Resolution for a Competitive Edge

Professional Fortnite players will look for every competitive advantage that they can use to win tournaments when the stakes are over $8 Million. The new trend is to use a 4:3 resolution to supposedly make hitboxes larger like in CS:GO. So when you watch competitive tournaments expect to see hideous graphics as the screen is squashed and the character models are stretched to give players the competitive edge that they seek. Some say that the increased vertical also gives you the same horizontal view.

Parents Hire Fornite Coaches to Boost Their Kids Into Competitive ESports

Parents have always been competitive with their progeny since the beginning of time. They hire coaches from all types of sports disciplines such as soccer, tennis, track, piano, basketball, etc in a bid to make their kid better than the other neighborhood kids or to help them become professionals. Now with the rise of eSports, parents have resorted to hiring video game coaches with Fortnite being a hot ticket at $35 per hour to train. With individual tournaments paying over a $130,000 and boasting of an overall $8 million prize pool; who can blame them for wanting their kid to have a better chance at winning?

Leaked Fortnite APK suggests it will be available through the Galaxy Apps store

The Android version of Fortnite has garnered quite a bit of attention over the past couple of weeks. First, it was discovered that the game might initially be exclusive to the Samsung Galaxy Note9 when it launches, and towards the end of last week, Epic Games confirmed it would be bypassing the Google Play Store to avoid giving 30% of its revenue to the middleman.
