Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Reportedly Running At A Different Server Rate Than Beta

A user on Reddit has been testing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4's Blackout and Multiplayer mode and has noticed that the final game's server send and receive rates. This gets a bit technical, so I'm going to let Reddit user Smcro explain it on the game's subreddit.

That said, here's a basic if not very specific breakdown:

Basically, online multiplayer games have a server send rate and a client send rate. Server send rate is how many updates the server sends to your device (PC, console, whatever) per second. Client send rate is the same thing, but in reverse – how many times your device goes "Hey, cool, thanks, here's what we're sending back to you" to the server per second. As a general rule for multiplayer games online, higher rates are better, as it means the information trade is more accurate to what is happening across multiple devices.

Fortnite Teases Spooky Halloween Content

Fortnite Teases Spooky Halloween Content

Epic is never one to miss a good opportunity to encourage people to play Fortnite and Halloween is one of the best things to get people to enjoy new cosmetics. As such, the official Fortnite Twitter account has been posting teases of new content with the hashtag of Fortnitemares.

Tombstones quake, Keep your finger steady.
The circle will close,
Better be ready. #Fortnitemares pic.twitter.com/ocd2VR1d19

The first tweet seems to show off a new skin or character with zombie-like skin. The most recent tweet shows the infamous Fortnite cube chained up and glowing. Users on Twitter have pointed out that the pictures so far seem to be connected by the patterns in the corner, as well, suggested that something will happen after four pictures get posted. Judging by the schedule so far, that means we're halfway through and it will be another few days until it finishes.

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Bombed With Negative Reviews For Sale Price

Shadow Of The Tomb Raider Bombed With Negative Reviews For Sale Price

When Shadow of the Tomb Raider released last month, fans were fairly split on the game. Our own review felt like the game wasn't entirely fulfilling its potential, but user reviews on digital distribution service Steam were in the "positive" range, which means that 70% of reviewers were high on the game. Now that positive has fallen after the Steam community has become upset that a sale price for the game that owners feel is premature.

The game released on September 14 and got a 34% discount on Steam on October 16. Since that date, 66% of the game's reviews have been negative, most not mentioning anything actually good or bad about the game. The reviews mention that the game released a month prior and people who pre-ordered paid more than people who waited a month.

"one month -34%!!! OMG" read one review.

Listen To Persona 5's Morgana Read 'Go The F*** To Sleep' Bedtime Book

Listen To Persona 5's Morgana Read 'Go The F*** To Sleep' Bedtime Book

Persona 5's Morgana has a bad habit of telling people when they are and aren't sleep, and dictating their actions based on their assumptions. It's kind of rude, honestly, and if I want to hang out with my friends or dive into someone's psyche through an ethereal plane, that's my damn business. But it seems Morgana is obsessed with the idea of sleepiness, so much so that they've taken to reading questionable children's bedtime stories.

Well, not really. Morgana's voice actress, Cassandra Lee Morris, has decided to user her powers as the voice of the character to read the humorous "Bedtime story" Go the F*** to Sleep, as the character, which involves as many expletives as you might expect. So while you might have cursed under your breath as Morgana prevented you from going out at night, know this: They can curse too.

Tekken 7 Sells 3 Million Copies, Series Total Up To 47 Million

Tekken 7 Sells 3 Million Copies, Series Total Up To 47 Million

Tekken 7 has become one of the fighting game community's biggest mainstays since its release last year, and it looks like that momentum, along with continual updates, guest characters, and a second season have translated into good sales numbers.

Series producer Katsuhiro Harada took to Twitter to announce some recent sales numbers. The highlight is that Tekken 7 has, over a year after launch, sold over three million copies, and impressive milestone for a fighting game. Harada also took the moment to mention that the series' overall sales numbers have reached 47 million.

This bodes well for the future of Tekken 7 and continuing updates, which should make a solid fighting game even better with time. Hopefully Bandai Namco's other recent original fighting game, Soulcalibur VI, can reach the same success.
