State Of Decay Title Update 3 Out Today, Lets You Team Up With NPCs

Rough XBLA diamond State Of Decay is scheduled to receive another title update today, which fixes some more annoying issues and adds some welcome extra features. Chief amongst them is the ability to bring a community member along on missions to "watch your back," which should make things easier - if even more tense. Note that the bug that accidentally let players exceed the population cap and break their save file has been removed, but not retroactively fixed if you've been affected.

We've got the patch notes below, fresh from Undead Labs themselves. In case you don't know, State Of Decay refreshes the tired old zombie apocalypse trope with a massive open world and consequences to every decision. More details in our 8/10 State Of Decay review.

State Of Decay Patch Fixes A Hot Mess Of Issues

State Of Decay is one of the best zombie games to have released in years and deserves to be one of this year's most successful sleeper hits... despite me describing it as "rough enough to file your nails on" in our 8/10 review. Undead Labs have now released a new patch that fixes a huge number of the more egregious problems, while also adding V-sync (hurray!) and tweaking balance.

SimCity Update 4.0 Out Today, Will Fix Global Economy

It's only taken the best part of three months, but leaderboards and a working global economy are finally coming to SimCity! Yay!

Not that this will encourage us to fish our copy out of the volcanic crater we hurled it into, you understand.

There are a number of bugs being fixed and features being restored in Update 4.0, and this time, the hilarious bug fix of the week goes to adding in features that were promised at launch.

Also, apparently the clouds weren't working properly. They will now rain, which is nice.
