So, yesterday I bought Men of War: Vietnam on the Steam sale, but it turns out that I am the only one of my friends to do so.
This means that I have to find somebody to play with, so if there are any europeans out there who would like to play this with me, it would be awesome.
Pm me or reply to this post.
Today I recieved an email from Codemasters (not a phising scam), and they say that usernames, passwords, adresses were stolen.I checked the header and the email did indeed come from codemasters servers and there were no links in the email at all, only thing they had was the name to their customer service email.
Here is the content of the email :
Important information regarding your account
Dear valued Codemasters customer,
On Friday 3rd June, unauthorised entry was gained to our Codemasters.com website. As soon as the intrusion was detected, we immediately took codemasters.com and associated web services offline in order to prevent any further intrusion.
During the days since the attack we have conducted a thorough investigation in order to ascertain the extent and scope of the breach and have regrettably discovered that the intruder was able to gain access to the following:
Access to the Codemasters corporate website and sub-domains.
DiRT 3 VIP code redemption page
Access to the DiRT 3 VIP code redemption page.
The Codemasters EStore
We believe the following have been compromised: Customer names and addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers, encrypted passwords and order history. Please note that no personal payment information was stored with Codemasters as we use external payment providers, meaning your payment details were not at risk from this intrusion.
Codemasters CodeM database
Members' names, usernames, screen names, email addresses, date of birth, encrypted passwords, newsletter preferences, any biographies entered by users, details of last site activity, IP addresses and Xbox Live Gamertags are all believed to have been compromised.
Whilst we do not have confirmation that any of this data was actually downloaded onto an external device, we have to assume that, as access was gained, all of these details were compromised and/or stolen.
The Codemasters.com website will remain offline for the foreseeable future with all Codemasters.com traffic re-directed to the Codemasters Facebook page instead. A new website will launch later in the year.
For your security, in the first instance we advise you to change any passwords you have associated with other Codemasters accounts. If you use the same login information for other sites, you should change that information too. Furthermore, be extra cautious of potential scams, via email, phone, or post that ask you for personal or sensitive information. Please note that Codemasters will never ask you for any payment data such as credit card numbers or bank account details, nor will Codemasters ask you for passwords or other personal identifying data. Be aware too of fraudulent emails that may outwardly appear to be from Codemasters with links inviting you to visit websites. The safest way to visit your favourite websites is always by typing in the address manually into the address bar of your browser.
Unfortunately, Codemasters is the latest victim in on-going targeted attacks against numerous game companies. We assure you that we are doing everything within our legal means to track down the perpetrators and take action to the full extent of the law.
We apologise for this incident and regret any inconvenience caused.
We are contacting all customers who may have been affected directly.
Should you have any concerns or wish to speak to a member of our Customer Services team, please email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
.. Turns out they are not masters of code after all...
I would have gotten the game for the 360. First off, in comparison images on Fallout 3, the 360 got out way ahead of the PS3. Plus the 360 has better controllers for people who doesnt have japanese hands (aka baby fingers). My hands hurts like hell after 1 hour of play on the PS3 controllers.
I've already pre-ordered the game for PC :D
Hey PC gamers ;)
I posted in the gamespot UK forum about a coop night that me and a friend is hosting (read more by clicking on the link at the end).
Only apply if you are residing in Europe, since the ping to the US would be bad. But if you really want to join the gaming, I can give you an IP to ping so that you can check your latency (ping). If you are not to picky about it 150 ping could work, since its not a competetive game we are going to play :)
You can read about it here :
Its impossible to find a "tips us" thing here, so im going to use this forum.
The new star wars game : Star Wars - Republic Heroes, isnt anywhere to be found here on Gamespot.
Im been looking forward to Operation Flashpoint 2 for many many years now. We all admit that ARMA didnt live up to its expectations.
So why not enhance the OFP2 section with a new interview? 8)
