Patch notes are imported from steam. There may be errors. This mostly exists so I can stay on top of them to update the features in our tags and scoring categories (which I do manually), but since many of you liked the idea of staying up to date with all the games in one place I'm working on making this data automated (right now I manually hit it every couple days) with better info and linking in with the game views.

There will be more data and proper atribution here (original author, steam link, original post date, etc) real soon, I promise. This is just like a technical test to see if they're coming in ok at all.

Nex Machina » Server problems fixed!

We’ve implemented fixes for the issues caused by the meltdown vulnerability. All online interactions in Nex Machina should now work as intended.

Earlier the patches installed by our cloud provider caused our backend to experience unusual load. At first we suspected a DDoS attack as we didn’t get more errors than we usually did. However, after further investigation we discovered that a particular backend request was taking an unusually long time. This request scans a very large table for player entries in the leaderboards and due to its massive size the operation had become notably slower after the meltdown patch.

We implemented a workaround and you can see the results below. Turns out it’s now even better than it was before!
