Rift will be free-to-play without any restrictions from August 25th to August 31st
Let us get one thing straight. We hate all games that are locked at 30fps. Okay, there is a reason to lock the framerate to consoles for performance purposes but there is no reason at all to cap it on the PC. At the same time, we are amazed with some modders that went the extra mile to remove it from various rift platinum like Transformers: War for Cybertron or Star Wars: The Force Unleashed. And here comes now Ubisoft’s From Dust that is added to this 30fps capped games list.
Bohemia Interactive released the gamescom trailer of their upcoming helicopter game, Take On Helicopters, and let us tell you that you really need to check it out.

THQ released some new gamescom screenshots and a brand new trailer for Saints Row: The Third. As always, the game looks great and seems as crazy as the previous parts, a good sign in our opinion as it differentiates it from all other open-world games. Saints Row: The Third is currently slated for a November 18th release on X360, PS3 and PC.

You’ve seen in the past posts about major PC leaks but we all know that leaks are more often on consoles and here comes a major leak for a highly anticipated game. It is pretty much confirmed at this moment that Deus Ex: Human Revolution’s X360 and PS3 versions are leaked on various torrent sites, five days before their release. Now obviously we can only assume that a reviewer leaked it or that a store broke its street release and someone put it on the Internet.
