It is Friday deans and queens, and what a hell of a note that we shall end on this week? When big time celebrities and video games mix, there’s a 50/50 chance things will end well. You be the judge of how the latest of these situations is going in the latest Gaming Daily.
Lindsay Lohan continues her journey to sue Take-Two Interactive
Take a look at the photo above. Look closely, then look away, and then look intensely at it again. Linday Lohan, bless her heart, thinks that this photo resembles her, and thus is continuing her lawsuit adventure against Take-Two Interactive. This all started three months ago, when Lohan presented a 10-page lawsuit to the folks at Take-Two, peeved at the fact that her likeness was allegedly ripped off for the game’s promotional material. The Hollywood Reporter came across the details of a revised lawsuit today, claiming it to be “bulked up” from a 10-page document filled with misspellings and complaints, to a 67-page document that conveys Lohan’s grievances in a far more detailed manner. Uh oh.
Now take a look at this other picture that sits above these words. That is Kate Upton featured in an issue of Sports Illustrated on the far left. Now let your eyes gradually advance to the right. Everyone’s going to draw their own conclusions, but if I had to bet my last dime, I’d bet it on the GTA V beach girl definitely resembling Upton above anyone else in the public eye. Gah, if only Lohan would focus more on something like, oh, I don’t know, maybe BRINGING BACK MEAN GIRLS. Please?

Dragon Age: Inquisition will indeed run in 1080p on the PS4.
While some game developers feel that “console parity” is important for their games, others believe it is best to maximize the capabilities of each platform. The folks at Bioware are no exception, making the claim of a 1080p PS4 version of their upcoming title Dragon Age: Inquisition on twitter:
Confirmed: #DAI resolution is 1080p on PS4, and 900p on Xbox One. We maximized the current potential of each platform.

This could easily be seen as a swipe at Ubisoft Montreal, who has been under a sea of scrutiny for capping the the PS4 version of Assassin’s Creed: Unity at 900p, so that i will match the Xbox One version. While I personally don’t find resolution in games to be a deal breaker (as long as it’s 720 an up), I have to say that I wouldn’t mind seeing what a game like Dragon Age: Inquisition would look like running in luscious 4K.
Members of the PlayStation Nation are in for a treat: the video game brand will be hosting a huge fan event in Las Vegas on December 6-7. PlayStation is finally putting their flag down in the convention scene, and word on the streets is that this event is expected to take place for years to come. The fact that it’s PlayStation’s 20th anniversary is definitely a good reason to kick this off, though I expected PlayStation, Xbox and Nintendo to have done this quite some time ago. Way to be ahead of the competitors, Yoshida.
