ICYMI for October 3

SBB ICYMIv3 450x265

Welcome back again, newshounds. The holidays will soon be upon us, so now’s a good time as any to start thinking about your wishlist for Santa.

How to Get Away with Getting Free Steam Games

Seriously, don’t. Just. Don’t. What am I talking about? Well, Worlds of Magic developer Leszek Lisowski did what most indie developers do in this day and age: give out free Steam codes to YouTube video makers. Only he discovered some of those keys ended up on reselling sites. Yeah, pretty sneaky. Moral of the story: make sure you know who you’re talking to when giving out codes.

The Future is Not Windows 9

Somewhat related to gaming is the latest news out of Redmond. Microsoft announced the latest version of their dominant operating system, Windows 9…err, 10. 10? Yep, 10. Why 10? Microsoft says the reason is that this is the last major update to Windows and that subsequent releases will be minor updates. Windows 10 is designed for both desktops and tablets. Developers and the curious can expect a preview build next week.

It’s All About the Engrams

On Wednesday, Bungie rolled out patch 1.0.2 for Destiny, which brings major changes to Engrams. Now, players who earn Legendary engrams can expect Legendary items. And get this, Rare engrams will produce a Rare item or a higher quality item. So basically what you would expect. Other changes include better rotation of maps in the Crucible and hiding the XP bonus for more difficult missions.

The Goddess’ Quest

The female Thor is already moving beyond the comic book pages. As part of its one-year anniversary, Marvel Puzzle Quest will include the Goddess of Thunder among its roster of legendary heroes. Player will be able to try her out in PvP matchups on October 17; after that, Thor will beome a legendary rank character.

Blood, Sweat, and Beer

It’s no secret that craft beer has boomed recently and soon, there will be a documentary telling the tale of its popularity. Blood, Sweat, and Beer focuses on four men who seek to make or keep their fortunes through the magic of craft beer. Will they succeed in bringing amber goodness to the masses? Or will they end up crying in their beer? Well, head on over to Kickstarter, watch the trailer, and fund the project to find out.
