SunKenRock: As with any member ,there is always some history behind their name.What was your inspiration or credit to have that name?
Stoned Penguin: I originally got the name Racist Penguin from a song and i liked the joke in it but in a community i used to be in suggested that i changed it to stoned penguin since that would fit me more(i was a really steroetypical stoner).

SunKenRock: Starting with one origin to another. Where did the your gaming history start?
Stoned Penguin: I got really interested in games from watching my parents play(apparently that was uncommon) later they would let me play(command 'n' conquer, doom and starcraft) and i've always liked games for as long i can remember.

SunKenRock: Is there a game that you will always love no matter how aged or dated it might become compared to todays standards.?
Stoned Penguin: Warcraft 3, no doubt. Still play it every now and then and i have always had it installed

SunKenRock: Do you have an hobbies outside of gaming ,or special talents youd like to share?
Stoned Penguin: I don't really have talents of any sort. I've done hobby work with photoshop, learning to code and worked with servers just to learn about

SunKenRock: Being you play PC quite a bit ,what is your best moment or maybe a achievement that you got.?
Stoned Penguin: Well there is one thing but that has an up and down side, i used to play CS:S a lot with some of my classmates(thousands of hours), we going to a tournament which was the biggest in my country and because i was gonna have surgery i couldn't go but atleast they made it into top 20 with a replacement.

SunKenRock: Continuing on , could you give a rough estimate of how many hours you might have in the game you played the most.?
Stoned Penguin: Easily CS:S, i had atleast 3500 hours

SunKenRock: Congrats on your first month being within fever, have anything moments that youd like to share?

Stoned Penguin: I'm always up for trying new games, any of the main games or others. i prefer playing most games with others which one of the reasons i came here. Last note, i might seem a bit quiet before i get to know people.​

Scientists successfully infiltrate computer using malware coded into DNA

In what reads like science fiction becoming reality, researchers at the University of Washington have been able to successfully infect a computer with malware coded into a strand of DNA. In order to see if a computer could be compromised in that way, the team included a known security vulnerability in a DNA-processing program before creating a synthetic DNA strand with the malicious code embedded. A computer then analyzed the “infected” strand, and as a result of the malware in the DNA, the researchers were able to remotely exploit the computer. The results were published in a recent paper.

“We wanted to understand what new computer security risks are possible in the interaction between biomolecular information and the computer systems that analyze it,” the researchers wrote, led by Tadayoshi Kohno, a professor of computer science at the University of Washington.

Deathmatch coming to Overwatch, along with a new map

[video=youtube;4_CBzklel1c]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_CBzklel1c[/video]


Valve announces Artifact, a Dota 2 card game

At this year’s International Dota 2 Championships, developer Valve Software announced a new game coming soon: Artifact.

Artifact is a card game based on Dota 2 involving three boards and a selection of characters from Valve’s flagship game, though other details remain light. The game was announced just before the final match of Day 2 of TI7 by event host Sean “Day9” Plott, who gave a vague description of the game that seemed to indicate it would involve building barracks, creeps, and lanes (after suggesting the announcement was not related to Dota 2). Comparisons to Blizzard’s Hearthstone seem inevitable.

The 2017 International Dota 2 Championships continue through this week. There is no announced release date for Artifact other than some time in 2018, though its Twitter account is now live.

SKULL & BONES’ story cannot be played without multiplayer



Players have been excited for a return to the high seas ever since Skull & Bones was announced at UbiE3. Though a spiritual successor to Assassin’s Creed: Black Flag, the game will offer a more intricate adventure as a pirate. Ubisoft creative director Justin Farren provided more answers on the upcoming experience.

In an interview with GameSpot, Farren talked about the focus on PvP, obtaining in-game loot, and long-term plans. Among the first things he addressed was boarding actions. According to him, the act of boarding another player’s ship is a mechanic the team is still working on. “We want boarding to be something that’s very intense and visceral,” he said. “If you think about other games where they have quick-time events, we didn’t want that. We wanted it to be skill-based.” Thus, it doesn’t look like there will be any first-person perspective in PvP crew battles. Albeit, the team hasn’t ruled it out. Ubisoft’s priority is making the mechanic work in a game that has several other ships in action.

Additionally, Farren promised there would be post-launch content for Skull & Bones. As he said, they will include “new gameplay, modes, new content for the player to earn, and then of course, new regions to explore.” While he promised this was a part of the “service” players get with the game, he didn’t specify whether it would be free or come in the form of a season pass.

First look at Microsoft's gorgeous new Xbox avatars (exclusive)



Microsoft has been working on new Xbox avatars for quite a while, having teased them several months ago. They're nearly ready for prime time as part of the Fall Creators Update for Xbox One, and we got an early look.

If you're in the Xbox Alpha Ring, you'll notice that there's a new "Xbox Avatar Editor" app, that's listed but currently inaccessible. Well, we got a look at the Windows 10 version of the new Avatar Editor interface and some of the editing options. Here's what to expect!


Note that this is a work in progress running on a Windows 10 PC, rather than Xbox One. The app is built using Unity3D and is capable of running across all Universal Windows Platform (UWP) compatible Windows 10 devices.

It's certainly early days for the app, but the new Xbox avatars are unquestionably beautiful, full of detail, vibrant art, and expressive animations. The sheer amount of options and combinations that Microsoft seems to be gunning for is not only incredible in terms of potential volume but also unprecedented in inclusivity and personal expression.

The current version of the Xbox Avatars Editor app is very similar to the existing app but with some Fluent Design translucency. This could change later on, but the basic functionality is there. You will be able to edit and customize your new Xbox avatars in the same way you can today, with some powerful differences.

How are the new Xbox avatars different?

First, you can completely customize the avatars now, with infinite options for colors and specific options for limbs and bodies. If you're pregnant, you can express it. If you have a prosthesis, you can express it. Height and weight options are far more varied and customizable than before, too, and there is no restriction on what colors you can use where. If you want to have bright green skin and role play as an orc, or pale white zombie skin (like me) that's totally in the cards.

The color options aren't only infinite, they're smart. As seen above, they keep your most recently used colors under an "Active Color" tab, allowing you to easily find that specific shade you just used.

Beyond physical customization, the new version of Xbox avatars lets you customize your mood, too. While the previous avatar versions did have some rudimentary emotional expressions, you can now set the tone of your character's body language throughout by changing their mood. I always felt my existing Xbox avatar was way too energetic to really be me.

What if you're really fond of your existing avatar? Not to worry, Microsoft isn't shutting down the existing Xbox 360 avatar system, nor its content. You will still be able to access all of your existing purchases and inventory, using a separate "Xbox Original Avatar" app, which will be available to download later. You can also import the old avatars into the new system for use on Xbox Live, if you want to retain your previously-owned content.
