      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Scientists Have a Way to Stop Cheaters

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Scientists Have a Way to Stop Cheaters

      No one likes a cheater. And thanks to some dedicated computer scientists at the University of Dallas at Texas, we may have a new way to stop cheaters in their tracks.

      Dr. Latifur Khan, one of the authors of the study, shares how it works saying "Players who cheat send traffic in a different way. We're trying to capture those characteristics. After detection, we can give a warning and gracefully kick the player out if they continue with the cheating during a fixed time interval." He goes on to say, "Our aim is to ensure that games like counter strikes remain fun for all players".

      They use Counter Strike to create the software, but it will work on any MMO that sends data to one server. The great news for anyone who's been frustrated with blatant, and some not so blatant cheating while playing games online.

      Is this software something that you would be interested in trying out?

      Weekly Dose of Gaming News - Razer Makes a Credit Card for Gamers

      If you've been thinking: Hey, where's my credit card with LED lights? You're apparently not alone.

      Razer partnered with Visa to make a credit card for gamers, so of course it had LED lights. How else would you make a card for gamers? If you were wondering what color the lights are: Green, they're green. And they light up when you pay for stuff.

      Before you run out and immediately get one for yourself, we tried.

      They're sadly not available to everyone just yet. It's currently in beta testing in Singapore and is only being offered to 1337 people. They also offer some unique rewards that they call Gamified. Their site gives us some more info saying, "Enjoy a slew of Gamified card beta rewards where testers complete tasks, level up and stand to earn up to $2,000 worth of Razer gear and free card upgrades".

      What do you think of the idea of gamer credit cards? Will you get one when the cards officially launch?
