Howard will receive his award at the Game Developers Choice Awards and is being honored because of his "innovative contributions to open world gameplay and game development."

EXPOSED: DayZ forums hacked 

There's been a breach people! RED ALERT! CODE 3! Okay but in all seriousness, the forums for the zombie game, DayZ, have been reportedly compromised. There has been a "security incident" that took place recently and it has exposed all usernames, emails, and passwords. Gamers have reported that Bohemia has sent out an email informing them of the issue and announced that changes are being made to the IpBoards to prevent future incidents, like this one, to occur in the future according to Bohemia. It's recommended you change your passwords for anything else that could've used a similar password. It's truly unclear how many accounts were really affected in relation to the security breach but it's probably better to take some precaution.

Google's crack at the VR game
*This is not the New Google VR headset. This is the Gear VR which already is on the market

Google will launch a new virtual reality headset this year according to a new report from The Financial Times. The new headset is meant to be a direct competitor to the Samsung and Oculus VR headsets. The unnamed VR headset will reportedly use a smartphone for it's display and computing power and is also said to take advantage of a much broader range of android devices.
