An FPS Server guide for developers It's not rocket science and to be honest, most if not all of these features have been around for some time. However we keep seeing new games released, with a lot of these basic features missing. Click here to view the list of features we've been asking for since 2001

Last month, Microsoft has disabled 2 of the old style DRMs, and subsequently the games that use them, on Windows 10. Games that use Securom and Safedisc no longer work on Windows 10 without a patch of some sort to remove the reliance on these draconian DRMs. This decision was made by Microsoft in response to security concerns, but as a side effect rendered hundreds of old games unplayable on the new operating system without players installing no-CD cracks or re-buying the games via modern digital distribution services which don't use the now-abandoned DRM. Now Microsoft have released a security patch that also removes support for the Safedisc DRM from Windows Vista SP2, Windows 7 SP1, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1. The description for update '3086255' says that it "addresses a defense-in-depth update for the secdrv.sys driver, a third-party driver." It then explains how it addresses that problem: "The update turns off the service for the secdrv.sys driver. This may affect the ability to run some older games."
FYI, Microsoft has provided a workaround. Those interested in running such games will have to either temporarily turn on the service for the secdrv.sys driver by running certain commands, or by editing the registry.
Something interesting appeared on NeoGaf this morning. EA are doing research for a paid subscription service. Like the console one that currently exists. However, major publishers are listed as potential partners and could be a potential rival for the multi publisher sales juggernaut that is Steam.

Aside from old videos, this may be the best way to visit the game that never was. According to Epic Games, the cornucopia of assets scavenged from Infinity Blade: Dungeons is comprised of different packs:
