Bloodborne Modder Waiting For Sony Before Releasing 60 FPS Patch

A modder who is currently working on a 60 FPS patch for Bloodborne has clarified the reason why he’s waiting to release it–and it’s not in case Sony doesn’t deliver.

Lance McDonald, who has been toiling away on a PlayStation 4 Pro version of Bloodborne to get it to run at 60 FPS, released new gameplay footage of his efforts in motion. His pinned YouTube comment says the 60 FPS patch will drop “once the PlayStation 5 has released and Sony have made it clear whether or not Bloodborne will be enhanced on that system in any way.” McDonald goes on to say that he wants to give PlayStation “the first chance” to release a higher frame rate version of the game.

On Twitter, McDonald clarified his intentions following a Kotaku report, in which the original headline posited that he would release the patch if Sony failed to release its

Where’s the iPhone 12, Apple? All the new Apple products we’re still waiting for

Apple has announced its newest iPhone during a September media event every year since 2012’s iPhone 5. During the 2020 Apple event last month, we got new Apple Watch and iPad models, and a bundled subscription service, but no new iPhone. That shouldn’t come as a complete surprise, as a delay has been rumored for months now, and the conventional wisdom says the iPhone 12 will be announced at an October event

Get ready for the iPhone 12 now, instead of waiting until the last minute. 


The iPhone isn’t the only missing-in-action update or new launch we’ve been waiting for. These are some of the things we didn’t see in September, but that might (or might not) show up before the end of the year.

What we didn’t see (yet)

Amazon Prime Day: The Tech Products Most of Us Are Waiting to Buy

Now that we officially know when Amazon Prime Day(s) are happening this year—Tuesday, October 13 and Wednesday, October 14—we decided to ask people exactly how they’re going to handle the online retail giant’s massive sale. One thousand US respondents ages 18 to 54 filled out a Google Survey between September 16 and 23, 2020. Here’s what we found. 

A full 14 percent of 9,768  potential respondents that said they’d be Prime Day buyers. If that percentage seems small to you, it’s a major increase from when we surveyed people in May 2019, ahead of last year’s Prime Day. Back then, only 8 percent of respondents said they would definitely make a purchase. Holding Prime Day closer to the holidays is likely having a major impact, enough to almost double the purchase planners. 

Still, that’s 86 percent of all potential respondents claiming they would not deign to make a purchase if

12 million Americans still waiting for unemployment benefits

Six months into the pandemic, some laid-off workers find themselves waiting weeks or even months to receive their unemployment benefits. States blame antiquated technology and say their staffers can’t keep up with the continued surge of claims, while worker advocates say these are just excuses for mismanagement and a failure to prioritize funding for upgrades. As this plays out, an untold number of families are hanging on by a financial thread.

“I’m living with my mother now, out of necessity,” said Adia Romaine-Figueroa, a Sacramento-area veterinary assistant who lost her job in April and inexplicably stopped receiving unemployment payments at the beginning of May, she said. “I have a balance of $10,000, of which I’ve received $2,000.” Romaine-Figueroa said she has spent hours trying to reach someone — anyone — at the state’s Economic Development Department to no avail.

Half a country away, Indiana hotel worker David Kruszewski describes a

Thousands still waiting on unemployment, OESC says new computer system is in the works

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Although unemployment claims continue to decline, OESC troubles persist for some Oklahomans, but officials with the office say help is on the way.

The Oklahoma Employment Security could soon have a new computer system to process unemployment claims.  

The agency’s years old technology is blamed for many of the problems experienced during the pandemic, but Interim Director Shelley Zumwalt says she is working on a new plan.  

“If we weren’t doing that, I think it would be irresponsible,” said Zumwalt.

Many still waiting on unemployment benefits say it can’t come soon enough.  

“I’m just nervous. I don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Michael Anderson, who is still waiting on his benefits.

Anderson has been out of work since the middle of May.

“I was devastated.”

He says he’s been going around and around with the OESC ever since.  

“I stood in line for 7 hours
