GTA VI: a new index thanks to Rockstar’s taxes

Rockstar has definitely been appearing in the news quite often lately due to several reasons. We told you about one of them in a previous article: the unavailability of Grand Theft Auto 4 on Valve’s platform. It’s not known at the moment if the title will be purchasable again in the future, but it’s not the only subject that is making people talk about the studio right now.

Indeed, for some time, many players have been wondering about the future of the Grand Theft Auto series. More precisely for five years now, since it was in 2015 when the head of Rockstar North, Leslie Benzies, confirmed that work on the next installment in the series had already started at that time. But for the last five years, the studio has not been very informative. At the same time, it must be said that with the release of GTA V on PC and the development of Red Dead Redemption II, the team has been quite busy.

That hasn’t stopped players from expecting news from the upcoming title in the Grand Theft Auto series. This expectation has caused the apparition of a host of rumors and alleged leaks, more or less credible, which have been accentuated in recent months. The hunt for clues is in full swing.

We will have to wait with Trevor until GTA VI comes

Precisely, new information comes to bring water to the visibly inexhaustible mill of rumors about GTA VI. TaxWatch UK, a British think tank that has revealed information concerning taxes and especially the aid received by Rockstar in 2019 has revealed that the studio has indeed requested more than £ 38 million in tax relief. Without going into boring details, this represents a colossal sum which, according to TaxWatch, could only be linked to the development of a game of a certain size: GTA VI.

This does not necessarily mean that we will see the game anytime soon, and with the new generation of consoles preparing, it is quite possible that the title will not see the light of day before at least the end of the year. However, this still indicates a significant production cost and that the development of the game must be at full speed.

Of course, while waiting for official info from Rockstar, it’s better to avoid getting too carried away, but who knows. Hopefully, GTA VI is on the right track. In the meantime, you can always find GTA V at the best price on our comparator.

The Last of Us Part II might be coming to PC

There is no official confirmation from Naughty Dog, but we may see the launch of the highly anticipated The Last of Us Part II in PC. Initially, the game was supposed to be exclusive to PlayStation 4, but a recent job listing published in the developer’s website would point towards a PC release. According to the job offer, the developers of the Uncharted series and The Last of Us are looking for a graphics programmer who has experience with DirectX12, Vulkan or other modern graphics or compute APIs, and thorough understanding of current GPU architectures (AMD GCN, NVIDIA CUDA), to implement new and existing rendering techniques for The Last of Us Part II. Since PlayStation 4 doesn’t use those technologies we can only assume that the studio is working on a PC version of the game.

The Last of Us Part II is an action-adventure survival horror game and the sequel to one of the most popular games for PlayStation. It continues the story of Ellie in her conflict with a mysterious cult. The game takes place in a post-apocalyptic United States where a mutated version of the Cordyceps fungus has massively infected humans, turning them into cannibalistic and violent monsters. Ellie is immune to the infection and that has caused her a lot of trouble during the events in The Last of Us. In this new game, her story continues unfolding as she struggles to survive in such a perilous world.

The Last of Us Part II was announced in 2016 and its release on PlayStation 4 is scheduled for May 29, 2020. There has been a bit of speculation in the last few months about the game being launched on PlayStation 5, but Naughty Dog has always been adamant about its launch on PS4.

We don’t know if this possible PC release that we are talking about will be confirmed in the future, but it would mean that another of the classic PlayStation-only franchises will be available on other platforms. As we discussed in another article, Horizon Zero Dawn will probably be released on PC too this year, and all this may indicate a shift on Sony’s strategy for its exclusive title. We will have to wait for a bit longer until we know about all the truth behind this.

Any player that wants to experience the new adventures of this crazy pair formed by the chameleon Yooka and the bat Laylee before buying the game, will be able to do it for free with a new demo that will be available very soon on several platforms. The demo of Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair will be accessible on Steam next Thursday, 23rd January, and a week later on PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch. A demo for Xbox One has not been announced so far, but it’s likely that you will be able to give the game a try on that platform too at some point in the future.

In Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair, our two heroes will have to face the evil villain Capital B. once more. This time, he has designed a machine that allows him to manipulate the minds of the inhabitants of the Kingdom of the Bees. To save them, Yooka and Laylee will have to infiltrate the Impossible Lair where he is hidden.

Yooka-Laylee and the Impossible Lair features classic 2.5D platform mechanics that will let you navigate through plenty of challenging levels as you solve puzzles, get rid of enemies and collect feathers, which you will use to unlock other levels. The game also features a 3D overworld that you can explore.

As you complete the levels in the different regions of the map, you will rescue members of the Royal Beetallion, which will help you in your fight against Capital B. You can assault the Impossible Lair anytime, but your mission will prove to be quite too difficult if you don’t get help from the bees first.

20 ps Command Examples to Monitor Linux Processes

Monitoring your Linux system is on the most quintessential processes that any Linux user or a systems administrator needs to carry out round the clock to ensure the system is running smoothly and avoid bottle-necks. Linux ships with a few built-in tools that can help you monitor your system. One of these is the ps command that specifically monitors the running processes and among other metrics associated with the processes such as percentage CPU and memory utilization. The ps command reads the /proc filesystem found in virtual machines.

In this guide, we dive deeper and let you on 20 of the most commonly used ps commands.

1) Listing Process in the Shell

The simplest form of the ps command lists the running processes in the current shell. This can be illustrated below.

[[email protected] ~]$ ps
 PID TTY          TIME CMD
 1437 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
 1465 pts/0    00:00:00 ps
[[email protected] ~]$

Let’s define a few terms:

  • PID: This is the Process ID.
  • TTY: This refers to the terminal that started and is controlling the process.
  • TIME: This is the time / cumulative time that a process has run for.
  • CMD: Name of the command that started the process.

2) Listing processes associated with a terminal

This is much like the listing the processes in the shell. To list the processes associated with the terminal you are currently running, execute the command:

[[email protected] ~]$ ps -T
  PID  SPID TTY          TIME CMD
 1437  1437 pts/0    00:00:00 bash
13357 13357 pts/0    00:00:00 ps
[[email protected] ~]$

3) Displaying all the running processes on your system

To get an overview of all the running processes on your Linux system use the -A flag as shown:

[[email protected] ~]$ ps -A

ps-command-display-all-running-process

Alternatively, you can also use the -e flag as shown. You’ll still get similar results.

[[email protected] ~]$ ps -e

4) Displaying output in BSD format

To list the processes in BSD format, run the command

$ ps -aux

Let’s break down the command:

The -a flag instructs ps to display all the processes from all the users. This, however, excludes the processes associated with a specific terminal.

The -u flag implies a user-oriented format. It provides more detailed information associated with the running processes.

The x flag lists processes that are usually started upon a system boot as well as background processes.

ps-command-output-bsd-format

Where:

  • USER – This specifies the user running the process
  • PID – This is the Process ID of the process
  • %CPU – This it the percentage CPU usage of each process
  • %MEM – This is the % of the physical memory used up by the process
  • VSZ – This is the size of virtual memory of each process in kilobytes
  • RSS – This is the size/amount of physical memory being used by a process
  • STAT – This points to the process state code e.g S (sleeping) Z (zombie) and R (Running)
  • START – This is the time the process started running

5) Displaying output in UNIX format

If you wish to display the output in UNIX format , then execute  the ps command with a combination of -ef flags

[[email protected] ~]$ ps -ef

The -e flag tells the ps command to list all the processes

The -f flag (full format) instructs the …

Fire Emblem: Three Houses, the Cindered Shadows DLC gets a release date

Released last July, Fire Emblem: Three Houses had raised a lot of expectations among fans of the series since its announcement in 2017. Although the game’s release was supposed to take place initially in 2018, that did not stop it from winning a great success with the players. A success partly based on the fact that Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the first episode of the series to be released on a home console since Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, released in 2008 on Wii.

It was announced before the release that Fire Emblem: Three Houses would be getting four waves of additional content. Players have already been able to get the first three, which include new outfits and items, among other things, and they will soon be able to get the fourth wave. During a live broadcast on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate which revealed the latest fighter in the Fighters Pass, who is none other than Byleth, we got some news regarding the latest DLC for Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

Called Cindered Shadows, it will be released on Nintendo Switch on February 13, and will bring a new story. It will add to the game a fourth house, the Ashen Wolves, which features four new characters: Yuri, Constance, Balthus, and Hapi. Cindered Shadows will also include a new area, called the Abyss, which lies deep inside the Garreg Mach Monastery. It should also be an opportunity to see new classes, as the trailer suggests. It also seems that the calendar system will not be in use in this new story, which will be accessed separately from the main storyline and that will, therefore, have its own save. However, once you complete the DLC, you will be able to recruit the four characters from the House of Ashen Wolves in the main story.

Fire Emblem: Three Houses – The Ashen Wolves

Cindered Shadows will be available on February 13 via the Fire Emblem: Three Houses Extension Pass. And you can find it at the best price on our comparator, just like the basic game.

Capcom aims to syncronize Monster Hunter World: Iceborne content on all platforms

Despite having quite a rocky launch, the sales of Monster Hunter World: Iceborne on PC have been quite good, placing the game among the most played on Steam during the weekend that followed its release. It is true that the PC version of Monster Hunter World‘s expansion has given some headaches to the players, especially with the save files that were disappearing, but Capcom started addressing those soon enough through hotfixes. Things seem to be a bit better now and Capcom has used the opportunity to talk about the plans for Monster Hunter World: Iceborne by revealing the roadmap for the game for the following months.

The official Twitter account of Monster Hunter shows the list of updates that are coming and what exactly will be added to the game. The most important thing revealed is the promised synchronization of content between PC and consoles, which will happen in April.

In February PC players will be able to face the fearsome Rajang. In March, Stygian Zinogre and Safi’jiiva will threaten Hoarfrost Reach, and the Tundra region will be accessible. With the arrival of April, the parity between PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be a fact with the release of two Arch-Tempered and Master Rank versions of existing monsters, and the Astera/Seliana Fest. From there, all the content that is coming to Monster Hunter World: Iceborne will be available on all the platforms at the same time. According to the roadmap picture, we will first see the return of a fan-favorite monster in May, and new monsters will be introduced for the summer.

Monster Hunter World: Iceborne is a game-changing expansion that will enhance your game experience taking it to new levels. You can find the best price to buy it in our comparator.

Baldur’s Gate 3 may be revealed next month

If you are a fan of fantasy role-playing games, it’s quite unlikely that you don’t know that Larian Studios is working on Baldur’s Gate 3. The developers of Divinity: Original Sin series are the chosen ones to bring back to life the most famous RPG saga of all time. Baldur’s Gate and its sequel Baldur’s Gate 2, had a second life with the release of their respective enhanced editions, which allowed the fans of the series to experience their incredible story once again with better graphics and a few other improvements. But the announcement of Baldur’s Gate 3 was received with a huge expectation and a multitude of people have been waiting to know more about the upcoming new installment in the series.

Larian went silent for a while after the announcement, but we finally got some news today with a publication on the official Twitter account of Baldur’s Gate 3 that teases a possible reveal on February 27.

Although nothing else has been commented on this by Larian, we can only hope to know more about Baldur’s Gate 3 on the specified date. Maybe we could get a glimpse of the gameplay or even a release date for the game. Until that happens, we have to survive with the cinematic trailer that was published when Baldur’s Gate 3 was announced, which is more than enough to keep all the fans of the series wanting for more.

If you are one of those few people that have never heard about Baldur’s Gate, you still have the opportunity of playing the first two games before Baldur’s Gate 3 is released. The series is set in the Dungeons and Dragons’ Forgotten Realms universe and it uses the mechanics of the famous tabletop RPG to unfold the story of a powerless orphan raised in a monastery who discovers the terrible truth behind his true heritage.

As usual, you can find the best prices to buy Baldur’s Gate 3 and the other games in the series in our comparator.
