Future 'Bloodborne' update will adjust player levels during co-op matches

July 6, 2015

From Software deserves some recognition for listening to fans of its games and responding with actual features. A good example of this is highlighted in an upcoming update for its PS4-exclusive game Bloodborne. In the last update to the game, From Software added a method where you could actually summon your friends by allowing them to have a special password that you could share.

But one of the things that needed a bit of tweaking is making sure both players are at or about the same level - something From Software says it will adjust in its next update to the game (1.05).

Chris Christie takes aim at Rand Paul over the Patriot Act

July 6, 2015

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) took a hard shot at GOP presidential rival Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) for his part in letting the USA Patriot Act expire earlier this year. Christie, clearly a hawk who supports the NSA's spying programs, said that Paul should have to answer to Congress if a terrorists attack occurs due to the government not having access to warrantless bulk data collection capabilities.

In an interview with MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Christie also said that voters are concerned about the threat posed by terrorists.

Former Valve economist is now a former Greek finance minister too

July 6, 2015

Former Valve economist Yanis Varoufakis is now the former Greek Finance Minister as well. Varoufakis took the post a mere six months ago, but given the financial turmoil in the country at present and some in the government playing financial chicken with the loans owed to the International Monetary Fund, it's understandable why Varoufakis would simply walk away from the post.

MattsworknameThere was a time in america when we needed unions and they served a good purpose, but that time hasnt been tbe case for about 20 years or more. The same could be said of our current system for teachers in higher educatoin,but thats a whole nother story07/07/2015 - 10:22pm
TechnogeekIn large part, though, that's an extension of the level of unjust deference given to police in general. Kind of hard to find any real grievances to defend against when the organizational culture views "complains about coworker" as worse than "murderer".07/07/2015 - 8:45pm
TechnogeekThat's a police union.07/07/2015 - 8:43pm
TechnogeekNo, police unions are worse by far. Imagine every negative stereotype about unions, then add "we can get away with anything".07/07/2015 - 8:43pm
Goth_SkunkeZeek: No, I do not agree they are union members.07/07/2015 - 7:48pm
E. Zachary KnightTeachers unions are just as bad as police unions, except of course you are far less likely to be killed by a teacher on duty than you are a cop. But they also protect bad teachers from being fired.07/07/2015 - 6:29pm
E. Zachary KnightGoth, so you agree they are still union members. Thankfully we have a first ammendment that protects people from being forced to join groups they don't support (in most cases any way.)07/07/2015 - 6:27pm
E. Zachary KnightAh, police unions. The reason why cops can't get fired when they beat a defenseless mentally ill homeless person to death. Or when they throw a grenade into a baby's crib. Or when theykill people they were called in to help not hurt themselves.07/07/2015 - 6:26pm
Goth_SkunkeZeek: Non-union employees have no right to attend meetings or union convention/AGM, or influence policy. The only time they get to vote is whether or not to strike.07/07/2015 - 6:24pm
Infophile(cont'd) about non-union police officers being given hell until they joined the union.07/07/2015 - 4:58pm
InfophileParadoxically, the drive in the US to get rid of unions seems to have left only the most corrupt surviving. They seem to be the only ones that can find ways to browbeat employees into joining when paying dues isn't mandatory. I've heard some stories ...07/07/2015 - 4:57pm
Matthew WilsonI am old school on this. I believe its a conflict of interest to have public sector unions. that being said, I do not have a positive look on unions in general.07/07/2015 - 3:59pm
TechnogeekWhat's best for the employee tends to be good for the employer; other way around, not so much. So long as that's the case, there's going to be a far stronger incentive for management to behave in such a way that invites retalitation than for the union to.07/07/2015 - 3:10pm
TechnogeekTeachers' unions? State legislatures. UAW? Just look at GM's middle management.07/07/2015 - 3:05pm
TechnogeekIn many ways it seems that the worse a union tends to behave, the worse that the company's management has behaved in the past.07/07/2015 - 3:02pm
