update

Aspyr has released a patch to bring Wideload Games' Stubbs the Zombie up to version 1.0.2. It addresses some issues related to performance issues caused by a memory leak, problems with saved games and limited user accounts, and audio and video stutter.

So far it seems to be only the Windows version that's getting patched.

Reading this week's update might tempt you into becoming a cradle-robber. Or at least a crib-robber.

This week's Bungie Update is special.

No, not that special, so get your mind off Halo 3 the unnamed project.

[image:10049 right hspace=5 vspace=5 border=0] This week's Bungie Update starts with some information on Play! A Video Game Symphony that is a rival to the Video Games Live concert series from last year You remember, the one you couldn't go to because so many dates were cancelled. Ahem. Marty O'Donnell and Mike Salvatori will be on hand to sign autographs and hang out when Play! comes to Chicago, which will be on May 27, 2006 at the Rosemont Theatre.

Frankie's Weekly What's Update at Bungie.net promises that the lack of information about.. whatever it is they're doing isn't just to spite us all:

We're torn between two goalposts (worst metaphor ever!) which are; waiting til' we're comfortable about talking about it, and being very busy making it. I know that's frustrating, but it's a complicated business and we're not just being jerks.

Frankie's latest Weekly What's Update at Bungie.net makes up for in important details what it lacks in epic scope.

Namely, it mentions the over fifty thousand XBL accounts permanently banned, the over $175,000 raised for Katrina relief efforts by the Fight the Flood campaign, and how a seven-foot tall female Spartan killing machine looks without a gun.

A double dose of Weekly What's Update this week. SketchFactor got himself all primed to fill in for an ailing Frankie, and then Frankie used his dying breath to provide the real update. What a trooper. For all the verbiage, most of it is rehash of the week's events-- a Halo character to appear in DOA4 and the announcement of, in Frankie's words, Peter Freaking Jackson as the Executive Producer of the Halo film.

The Weekly What's Update at Bungie.net this week, courtesy of Frankie, talks about the upcoming Team Hardcore playlist for serious, competetive players, including 10 maps and 10-11 gametypes. Check the update for a more complete list. Frankie also says that yes, Bungie knows that people still cheat, and they are still working on it.

As for surprise announcements:

This week's Update by Frankie at Bungie.net has a nice panorama of the new Kirkland office, where all the TVs are HD, the projectors are Godzilla, the subwoofers are behemoth, and Don Parsons thinks the elevator is a sauna. (Let's hope he doesn't decide to bring sushi with him--Ed.)

Frankie's second report from the Tokyo Game Show has Kameo and cosplayers, Koei and yaoi (sort of), Chrome Hounds and Dynasty Warriors, five Resident Evils and Ninety-Nine Nights. Not to mention a list of things you can't put in a locker in Japan, which makes me wonder what Frankie is doing over there in his free time.

Halo gets mentioned once, sort of.

Frankie filed the Weekly What's Update this week from the floor of the Tokyo Game Show, after getting blitzed on martinis. Wait, that's not right.

Frankie was there just to catch up on other Microsoft games and stuff he likes-- he mentions Phantagram's Ninety Nine Nights (as a lot of people are doing this week)

In Bungie-related news, the move to Kirkland is complete and Bungie held their Summer Pentathlon-- those events will get written up (hopefully) in next week's Update.

This week's What's Update by Frankie says that matchmaking playlists will get updated in "September-ish" to include all the new maps where appropriate (since at the end of this month, they'll all be free) as well as some interesting new variations, such as games with more than two teams and oddball games with more than one ball.

This week's What's Update at Bungie.net isn't much to shake a stick at, but that's because Frankie and the gang at Bungie are busting their you-know-whats on the next game which may or may not be Halo 3. Nobody's seen or heard from Ben yet, but the answer is forthcoming next week.
