Fans know the Diablo series for consuming their lives, but Diablo III hasn't had quite that impact. Maybe some new content will whet your beaks? No? Well, too bad, that's what you're getting: The Infernal Machine. Of course the first question is "What's that?" Well, it's a new endgame feature, exclusive to Diablo III's Inferno difficulty. The primary goal is to add in some more difficult gameplay challenges. To this end, new versions of the game's more difficult bosses appear in Infernal Machine, juiced up like Bane. They'll be palette-swapped and be riddled with all manner of special effects, so using the same strategies is probably a bad idea. They'll appear in the Infernal Machine new area, which is unlocked by collecting materials throughout the game's acts. After doing this, the Infernal Machine unlocks several new levels and unique area designs where players can come to clash with the baddest of the bad. Their reward for completing this content is a legendary account-bound ring. Is it awesome? Iuhno. Diablo III Patch 1.0.5 is due for launch some time in the coming weeks.
A new update for Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim has entered beta, and is now available on Steam. Given the fact that the Steam summer sales have just come to an end, so Skyrim is probably in a lot more Steam libraries now. Here is a list of the updates in Skyrim, including some of the 360-exclusive fixes: Update 1.7 (all platforms unless specified) BUG FIXES General memory and stability optimizations Fixed crash related to new water shaders Fixed rare crash related to dragon landings Fixed logic error with loading screens from add-ons (Xbox 360) Using vampiric grip and swimming no longer prevents swimming animation from playing afterwards Improved recognition with Kinect voice commands (Xbox 360) Kinect-enabled dragon language shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish work properly (Xbox 360) Fixed issue with Dawnguard Kinect-enabled dragon shouts for French, German, Italian and Spanish (Xbox 360) Now, most of the updates PC users will have access to seem like nice ones, keeping Skyrim from crashing and such. However, this pales in comparison to the 360's updates. Yes, everyone, the French, German, Italian, and Spanish versions of Skyrim have Kinect-enabled shouts. Picture, if you will, Raoul Bova doing Dragon Shouts at the television. Yes. Aside from that, you can look forward to it running a little smoother, being better optimized. The 1.7 beta is available right this second on Steam, so feel free to update before you start your next Argonian vampire hunter archer run for the recently-released Dawnguard.
