REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Steam Lovingly Unlocks Dark Souls For Some Dead Island: Riptide Customers

Posted on Sunday, April 28 @ 10:58:42 PST by Jonathan_Leack


A handful of UK and Norweigan customers who purchased Dead Island: Riptide at retail have returned home to find their CD key unlock Dark Souls on Steam instead. Confusion has ensued along with a variety of interesting Steam forum posts.

Community Manager Maurice Tan had the following to say about this epic mix-up:

To the best of my knowledge, this issue would affect retail copies in the United Kingdom and Nordic countries. Now, Dark Souls is an amazing game, but you probably bought Dead Island Riptide to play Dead Island Riptide! For those of you who don’t know this, Dark Souls is also not a Deep Silver game.

Dark Souls in an amazing game but you probably bought Dead Island Riptide to play Dead Island Riptide! For those of you who don’t know this, Dark Souls is not a Deep Silver game. We are aware of this mix up by whoever printed these codes for a completely different game from a different publisher and are working on a best possible solution to help affected players and retailers.

The issue has since been resolved, but it makes you wonder if this was an act of love by the gaming gods. I mean, I'd take Dark Souls over Dead Island: Riptide any day. Yes, even with my short temper.
