EVERYONE PANIC!!! As mentioned by my security mentor, Brian Krebs, Truecrypt has closed it’s doors and caused major waves in the paranoid encryption community. So what is up with this? Why did they disappear? Was it the NSA? Snowden… PUTIN!?!? IMHO it’s was M$. You see the notes on the Truecrypt website mysteriously support bit locker. BIT LOCKER! TC is a million times more secure than BL! Why? Triple Encryption Random Seeds and Keygens Hidden PARTITIONS! So what is my suggestion? Keep using TrueCrypt. Why?

Of course, you can also interact with us via our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/GameBriefs/ With me this evening are two gentlemen, and I use that term loosely, that need introductions. Former Editor of Technomite, sarcastic badass and purveyor of the Farting Corner, Bob Lohblaw And Metal know it all, former industry insider and the guy who has more awkward pauses than Jimmy Kimmel without his teleprompter- Steel Valor! ************** Tonight on Game Briefs we have for you the type of show you would want to listen to, but not admit to your friends that you are an avid listener of with: The Frontlines In The Farting corner with Bob Noobie Toobie with Steel and more!

Awwww bbm gets no love, but honestly, the only people I know that use blackberry's are ex-seals and paranoids. So what's included in the new app? Stats, history, stats, interactive maps, stats, loadouts, stats, player tracking, stats, scoreboards and stats. ... oh and stats. BTW ... from what I've seen so far it's an excellent addition as a real time tracker while you're playing. Just try not to get killed while you're staring at it. There is a bit of PC hate in the review for the app because it favors the consoles, but let’s face it. The PC master race just is denying it’s roots. Who’s your daddy? Ralph Baer’s your

The Farting Corner from Show 175- Where Bob Eviscerates Microsoft
If you missed the show last week, and don't have the time to listen to the whole show, FRET NOT! We have a rare treat for you here. Here's the scenario: Bob railed against M$ and the lack of Bing rewards on its own phone. I went to ECGC 2014, and a M$ tech evangelist attempted to "convert" me. I told him of their lack of support for WinPhone (and Bob's reaction to that) He agreed to go on air to discuss this. Despite our talking about it before hand, he still didn't know what we would be talking about. The rest is all in the audio. Seriously, if you haven't heard Bob rage before, you should listen to this. If you have, you should share it with someone. Want to hear the whole show? Of course you do.

He’s leaked information that is not only scandalous, but also vital to security of our country. One of those leaks is the not so secret, at least to a chosen few, news that the NSA bought a workable backdoor to the random number generator that was placed within the AES specification. What is AES? The Advanced Encryption Standard is currently the strongest civilian encryption available ... which is compromised by the NSA. It’s used to store password, SSNs, credit card info and other personal info. So can you trust it? Folks, this might be news to you but the internet is not anonymous and everything is logged. Here’s my advice. Yes, use HTTPS and AES but also don’t make poor descisions and do things that could end up bad for you online or anywhere for that matter. You never know who is on the other end of that ch

This week I got a sneak peek at VALVe’s upcoming title CounterStrike Global Offensive and let me just sum up the screenshots and promo movie with … Meeeeeeeh. Yes, VALVe may be bringing this title to the consoles but it’s not excuse for taking such a beloved game like CS and turning it into a slightly better looking title. oh wait, I just remembered this is the same company that butchered the hearts of Team Fortress Classic players when they released the sequel. Team Fortress 2 … The Incredibles Edition. Now before I get hate mail from Doug Lombardi let it be know I still love VALVe … but hate the direction that they’ve taken with my two fav VALVe mp games. …and speaking of VALVe and games that are shaping up to be Meh.
