    This week has been quite a busy one for PC gaming. From Microsoft’s new Flight Simulator to aliens touching down in Arma 3, we’re going to cover a few of the biggest PC gaming stories this week.

    Microsoft Flight Simulator

    It’s been a little while since Microsoft announced their new flight simulator game and players across the globe are excited about this one. Flight Simulators have captivated the minds of many a player over the years, but we haven’t really seen a new one kick up a storm until this announcement. The last game to make this huge of a wave was Flight Simulator X: Steam Edition back 5 years ago.

    Flight Simulator’s insider program kicks off next month, allowing players to preview the game early, and some people are very excited to get their hands on this.
    In the meantime, check out our virgin games sign up codes to fill up your procrastination time!

    Arma 3: First Contact

    Arma 3’s new DLC, First Contact, is here for players to delve into. And this one comes with a twist. Aliens!
    Arma hasn’t seen something like this anywhere in the series before, so that makes this an interesting feature released by Bohemia. In the new DLC you’ll be put to the test against the impending alien invasion featuring UFO’s, Alien Tech and more.

    Cyberpunk 2077

    Cyberpunk 2077 has been in the news a lot recently, especially since the E3 presentation featuring the one and only Keanu Reeves. This week, CD Projekt Red, the developers of the game have talked about player features and freedom.
    Regardless of which version of the game you pick up, or if you pre-order it, all players will have the same experience and in game content across the board.

    Projekt Red are no stranger to fleshed out and content-filled games, so we’ll be looking out for this one when it releases in April 2020.

    DayZ SurviverGamez

    DayZ is a game that has surrounded much controversy. Being in development for over 6 years it’s hard to still have belief that the game will ever be finished.
    Players this week have had the chance to build a new experience in the game as developers Bohemia announced they would be creating a Battle Royale gamemode, previously a player-ran competition known as The SurviverGamez.

    The gamemode, although not released to the entire playerbase and uncertain if it will be a standalone game in itself, is accessible to players that signed up to have closed alpha access. Players who have played the gamemode express the nostalgia that they feel when playing the game, reminding them of the pre 2013 days playing the Arma 2 iteration of the mod.

    So there we have it, a few of the biggest news stories of PC gaming this week. From Aliens to Flying your very own 747, what are you most looking forward to in the months ahead?

    DOSBox v0.74-3 is released. DOSBox emulates an Intel x86 PC, complete with sound, graphics, mouse, joystick, modem, etc., necessary for running many old MS-DOS games that simply cannot be run on modern PCs and operating systems, such as Microsoft Windows XP, Windows Vista, Linux and FreeBSD. However, it is not restricted to running only games. In theory, any MS-DOS or PC-DOS (referred to commonly as "DOS") application should run in DOSBox, but the emphasis has been on getting DOS games to run smoothly, which means that communication, networking and printer support are still in early development.

    DOSBox also comes with its own DOS-like command prompt. It is still quite rudimentary and lacks many of the features found in MS-DOS, but it is sufficient for installing and running most DOS games.

    DOSBox v0.74-3 Changelog:
    - Fixed that a very long line inside a bat file would overflow the parsing
    buffer (CVE-2019-7165 by Alexandre Bartel)
    - Added a basic permission system so that a program running inside DOSBox
    can't access the contents of /proc (e.g. /proc/self/mem) when / or /proc
    were (to be) mounted (CVE-2019-12594 by Alexandre Bartel)
    - Several other fixes for out of bounds access and buffer overflows.
    - Some fixes to the OpenGL rendering.

    Our ScummVM team is looking for Blade Runners who will help find, chase, and retire bugs which escaped from the off-world data colonies. These bugs are not dangerous and they won't stop you from discovering more secrets and choosing your fate. Your spinner, gun, ESPER machine and Voight - Kampff machine will be at your disposal.
    We are announcing that Blade Runner is ready for testing. The following languages are supported - English (both CD and DVD releases), German, Italian, French, Spanish, and the unofficial Russian version by Fargus Multimedia.
    Find your copy of Blade Runner, grab the latest development build of ScummVM (NOT the latest stable build) and copy the necessary files.
    Now you can play the game with subtitles! Just download subtitles.mix and place it among the rest of the Blade Runner files. So far we have only English subtitles, however, if you want to help us transcribe other languages from audio, please contact peterkohaut & praetorian.
    Note that when you add your game directory in ScummVM you'll be presented with two choices for the game. The first option is for the original game and will simply be named "Blade Runner"; we're mainly interested for your feedback for this version of the game, since it is considered feature complete. The other option is for importing the game with restored content and is named "Blade Runner with restored content"; this version is still work-in-progress and not yet complete. If you're testing this version please specify it explicitly in your feedback and bug reports.
    If your version of the game is not supported, please create a feedback report with MD5 so that we can add support for it.

    Pantheon v8.444 is released. Pantheon is Windows desktop application with collection of games for video consoles and home computers from the past. The games are not the part of the application, instead they will be downloaded (with the game manual or review - if available) from the internet, after you activate the game. Downloaded files are stored on the local file system and will be available offline the next time you wish to play the game. Finally, the program file is loaded into the memory and executed inside the emulator. Current version has emulator of Atari 2600 with collection of 170 games, emulator of Atari 5200 with collection of 50 games and emulator of Atari 8-bit computers with collection of 26 games.

    Pantheon is still in development, new features and games are added almost every day. But you may experience occasional artifacts or crashes during the gameplay, and game snapshots may not be available in the following releases.

    RetroArch v1.7.6 is released. RetroArch is a multi-system emulator for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and *BSD. It is formerly known as SSNES. Its design and background is quite different than most other emulators as RetroArch does not implement an emulation core itself. RetroArch talks to libretro, a generic emulator core API. This means that RetroArch is core agnostic, and it does not care which emulator core is running.

    Currently there are libretro implementations for systems such as SNES, NES, GBA, GB/GBC, Genesis, and even arcade games (Final Burn Alpha).

    libretro isn't only usable for emulators. A preliminary port of an open source reimplementation of Cave Story has been ported to libretro as well.

    RetroArch believes in modularity. The application itself is a command-line driven application suitable for HTPC and/or headless use. There also exists a GUI frontend for RetroArch, supporting every single config option available in RetroArch.
