Monster Hunter: World PC Trailer and August 9th Release Date Announced

Monster Hunter World has already shipped 8 million copies on the Playstation 4 console and PC enthusiasts have been patiently waiting for their turn to play the smash hit. Today Capcom has announced that the PC Master Race will be able to delve into the caverns, forests, and deserts of Monster Hunter World on August 9th, 2018! Of course there is a preorder package bonus available on the Steam page for those that are screaming, "Take my money!" As far as system requirements go, the official blog post from Capcom goes into much greater detail than the leak from yesterday. A NVIDIA GTX 1060 3GB and AMD RX 570 round out the recommended GPU list for 1080p High settings @30 fps, while an AMD FX 8350, Ryzen 1500, or Intel i7 3770K fill the recommended CPU list. Budget gaming enthusiasts can still play the title on Windows 7 and utilize their GTX 760s or R7 260x GPUs on for 1080p low settings @30 fps so Capcom should have everyone covered. But remember that you're going to have to be running the 64 bit version of the OS of choice. Time for me to check the couch for change so that I can get in on the preorder train. 4K 60 fps gaming right out of the box on Highest settings? Who's with me?

First up, let’s answer the big questions, where and when you’ll be able to play the PC version of Monster Hunter: World. It’ll be available on Steam on August 9th. You can already head over to the Steam page to pre-order your copy, which means you’ll also get the pre-order exclusive Origin Armor Set and Fair Wind Charm.

Music Modernization Act Addresses Digital Streaming Copyright and Payments

In the past music streaming services like Spotify have been sued for failing to secure mechanical licensing agreements for music streamed on their networks. This has led to multi million dollar lawsuits against the company. Spotify has complained that they simply have no means of identifying the proper copyright owner for compensation due to the lack of a music database. The Music Modernization Act seeks to remedy this situation by creating a database of music so that the streaming services can properly accredit an artist for their music. According to the bill, music streaming services will buy blanket licenses for music which will protect them from lawsuits. In exchange for this privilege, the music services will pay for the formation and upkeep of the database which is estimated to cost in the tens of millions.

The legislation would establish a licensing collective, to be overseen by songwriters and publishers, and paid for by the digital services, with rights information maintained by the copyright owners. Digital services, which now must track down rights holders or file notices in bulk with the Copyright Office, will be able to receive blanket licenses from the collective. In exchange, the services will gain protections against lawsuits.

Uber Car’s "Safety" Driver Streamed TV Show before Fatal Crash

The incident in which a self-driving Uber car hit a pedestrian in Arizona is in the news again, as police have revealed that the "safety" driver had been watching "The Voice" on Hulu when the crash occurred. Law enforcement said that if she was actually paying attention, the incident would have been "entirely avoidable."

Police obtained records from Hulu, an online service for streaming TV shows and movies, which showed Vasquez’s account was playing the TV talent show "The Voice" for about 42 minutes on the night of the crash, ending at 9:59 p.m., which "coincides with the approximate time of the collision," the report said.

Hunt: Showdown Upcoming Content

Hunt:Showdown had an incredibly quick preview of upcoming content to be patched in soon.

The vintage crossbow: It's a crossbow! Nothing too surprising, but skilled, stealthy players will appreciate that it doesn't alert every monster and enemy player to your position. Bolts can be retrieved once fired, too. Throwing knives: A new consumable item, throwing knives can be used for one match. Carried in addition to primary and secondary weapons, they're great for silent, close quarters kills. Knives can also be retrieved from corpses and surfaces once thrown. The hand crossbow: A small version of the vintage crossbow, but categorized as a pistol. It probably won't be as efficient over long distances as the vintage, but as a stealthy sidearm, it can make your hunter a bit more adaptable to different playstyles. Bolts retrievable, too. Stick explosive bombs: This one is pretty self-explanatory. Throw it, and it sticks to whatever it hits. Based on close scrutiny of the trailer, it appears they also explode. Curious. The Water Devil: Hunt is getting a new monster in the Water Devil, a wormy, tentacled thing that attacks players in swamps and bayous. It is gross. I do not like it.
