Stray Mod adds local Co-Op on PC

The adorable cat game everyone has been raving about for the better part of a week, Stray, now has a mod that allows local co-op. The person behind this rather impressive little feat of software engineering, KangieDanie, managed to make it all work using a tried and tested design strategy, split screen. Of course, this all comes with some caveats. “Only player one can see the HUD, so the others will have to play without the HUD,” notes KangieDanie. “There are moments in the game where the other players are stuck when there is a transition of the level. You can fix this by going back to the main menu and continuing the level again.” KangieDanie quips that “all in all, it looks like the game wasn’t made for split-screen.”


Steam, Epic, PayPal and Battlenet have been banned in Indonesia

Steam, Epic, Battlenet and several other gaming services has now been banned in Indonesia. This comes in the wake of some regulatory changes that make it much more difficult to enjoy our favorite hobby. None of these companies have yet issued statements and it remains unknown if they plan to comply with any of the new laws. In any case, people across Indonesia have taken to social media platforms like Twitter to vent their frustration. I can’t blame them to be honest.

Artist accuses Activision of plagiarism over new Call Of Duty Samoyed skin

Someone recently stepped up with some very serious allegations of plagiarism directed at the developer behind Call of Duty Vanguard, Activision. The soon to be released Loyal Samoyed skin allegedly copied directly from their portfolio. “I am the original artist that the upcoming Call of Duty Vanguard Samoyed skin was plagiarized from,” said artist Sail Lin. “Although I am also a Call of Duty player, I am very disappointed to see my work plagiarized by a large company like Activision in this way. I have contacted Activision for an explanation or compensation and hopefully the situation will be resolved soon .” I hope it works out for them.

Sony won’t close the door on future PS5 price hikes

Sony does not rule out the possibility of a price increase for the PS5. This comes after several months of supply chain issues that have plagued the recently released console. Sony has also apparently lost money on games. “There were two major constraints we were faced with,” Chief Financial Officer Hiroki Totoki said in a statement to investors. “One was the availability of parts and components, the other was the supply chain. With the availability of parts and components, there are a lot of improvements, so we’re very hopeful, quite optimistic about that.” The executive added that “for supply chain disruption, we actually took a real hit in the first quarter. In the first quarter, the hardware volume for sales was quite a bit less than we expected at the beginning of the year, so supply chain disruption is something that we hope will be addressed completely.” Now might just be the best possible time to buy.

The developer behind Minecraft, Mojang, released an update for the game earlier this week that allows even private servers to be subject to moderation. This is understood went down badly with many people in society. Minecraft until now has almost always been managed by its players. “To see a game I grew up with and loved start to fall is extremely depressing,” noted a player calling himself Knightfall. “This is not the Minecraft I grew up playing and it shouldn’t be the Minecraft kids today are growing up with.” The user also posted a picture saying that “Minecraft has decided to implement a system that can permanently ban players on any server regardless of the rules of the server. Private servers are no longer private.”
