  • The Witcher 3 Xbox One Collector's Edition Will Receive Extra Content

    witcher 3 gwent cardsIt has recently been revealed that Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will receive some additional content that other platforms will not get access to. The extra content will only be available in the Xbox One collector's edition, which Projekt Red have mentioned quite a few times leading up to this date.

    Unlike many other collector's editions available, the exclusive Xbox One content within the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be physical content, and will not add any additional content to the game.

    If you're a big fan of the Witcher and are quite knowledgeable about the lore of the franchise, you may consider looking into getting the Xbox One version of collector's edition - the extra content it will include involves a real set of Gwent cards. There will be 150 cards in total, and this will allow players to play Gwent in real life. Those without the collectors edition will still be able to play Gwent digitally within the game, but I think it's pretty nifty that Projekt Red have gone the extra mile to bring the popular card game within The Witcher's lore to life.

    Below, I have listed all of the content you can expect to find in the Xbox One collector's edition for the Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

    1. The standard edition of the game
    2. A giant, 33x24x26 cm (10" w US), 100% hand painted, Polystone figure of Geralt of Rivia battling a Griffin
    3. An exclusive, collector grade Witcher medallion
    4. A one of a kind SteelBook
    5. A two-hundred page artbook, containing breathtaking art from the game
    6. A huge Outer and Inner Collector's Boxes you can store your Witcher merchandise in!
    7. 150 Gwent trading cards
    The Witcher 3 will be released for the PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 24th, 2015.

  • Evolve Receives 2014's Best of Gamescom Award

    evolve gamescom awardsThe brand new 4 vs 1 shooter title from 2K has managed to pick up a variety of different awards from Gamescom this year, including the 'Best of Gamescom Award.' There's no denying that Evolve has managed to impress a pretty large audience, and I hope that the game manages to live up to what we've come to expect from the title so far.

    On top of grabbing the Best of Gamescom Award, Evolve has managed to pick up an award for the best console game from Microsoft Xbox, an award for the best action game, the best PC game, and the best online multiplayer game.

    Surprisingly, the only other companies to get awards from more than one category were Sony and Nintendo, making Evolve the biggest hit of Gamescom 2014 by far.

    Other games like Super Smash Bros, The Evil Within, Splatoon, Risen 3 and Littlebigplanet 3 managed to pick up awards too, however no other game was awarded the winning award in more than one category.

    Evolve looks to change the first person scene up by pitting four players against one another player. The fifth player gets to control large alien creatures, and put other pressures on the team of four humans. Evolve will release exclusively for the Xbox One later this year on October 21st. In the meantime, hopefully we'll get to see a bit more about the game before it is finally released. I'm not sure about you, but I personally cannot wait to get my hands on Evolve.

  • New Silent Hill by Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro In the Works

    new silent hillsHere's something to get excited about: it has been revealed that Hideo Kojima and Guillermo Del Toro are teaming up to create a brand new Silent Hill game. With Del Toro's great storytelling, and Kojima's amazing ability to translate a story into a playable experience, I personally think we can expect to see something absolutely wonderful from the pair.

    Despite the new revelations about the Silent Hill game, Kojima has been teasing the game on twitter and other streams for a few months. He also mentioned that he'd love to create a game including 3D captures of both Ryan Gosling and Norman Reedus.

    Low and behold, Norman Reedus will be making an appearance in the new Silent Hill game, and although an appearance by Ryan Gosling is pretty unlikely, it's still quite exciting to see the star from The Walking Dead stepping into the world of video games.

    If you're interested to learn more, you can download an interactive trailer for Silent Hills, the new Silent Hill game, from the PlayStation store.

    Details on release date and supported platforms are currently unclear, although it's pretty obvious at this point that the PlayStation 4 will be a platform that Silent Hills will be available on. We'll make sure to keep you updated as more information about the new Silent Hills game is revealed. Hopefully we can expect to hear something a bit more substantial about the game shortly.

  • Rise of The Tomb Raider Will be Exclusive to Xbox

    rise of the tomb raiderIn recent news, it has been revealed that the new upcoming Tomb Raider game, Rise of the Tomb Raider, will be released as an exclusive to Xbox consoles. This information was announced at Gamescom, along with a range of other details about Rise of the Tomb Raider.

    Unfortunately, the Tomb Raider panel at Gamescom did not bring any light onto the gameplay we can expect from Rise of the Tomb Raider, but it did reveal that the game will be released in the holiday period of 2015, which is just over a year away.

    On top of this, Microsoft made it abundantly clear that Rise of the Tomb Raider was going to be released as an Xbox One exclusive title, despite previous listings suggesting the game would be created for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One.

    It could be very possible that Rise of the Tomb Raider will only be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One, and will be released to the PlayStation 4 later in the year. Either way, it's interesting to see this team up between Square Enix and Microsoft, and we can only expect to see more exclusivity deals like this in the near future.

    Honestly, I think the introduction of third party exclusive titles is a little unfair; these choices are being made to sway new console owners to purchase one console over the other, and going to force enthusiast gamers to purchase both systems to enjoy the various new gen games that are released over the following years.

  • New The Division Trailer Shows Off Quick Gameplay Shots

    the division trailerA brand new trailer for The Division has just been released by Ubisoft, and it reveals a few things about the Xbox One version of the game, as well as showing a short glimpse at real gameplay footage.

    Firstly, the new trailer for Tom Clancy's The Division reveals that Ubisoft are planning to share details on the Xbox One version of the game for the first time at this year's Gamescom. On top of this, the trailer shows off a few off-screen glimpses of gameplay from the E3 demo for The Division.

    I'm very interested to learn more about Tom Clancy's: The Division, and hopefully Ubisoft will be willing to share a few details about the game at this year's Gamescom, which is under way this month.

    Whether Ubisoft will open up a real playable demo to visitors of Gamescom, or whether they'll keep gameplay to themselves is currently unknown, but I expect we'll be seeing some kind of Xbox One based gameplay footage very shortly at Gamescom.

    Tom Clancy's The Division is looking to be one of the most unique titles announced for the new gen, and many gamers are incredibly excited to see exactly what the game will consist of.

    So far, we know that The Division will be a "massive" multiplayer online third person shooter title that is based within a fragile, complex futuristic society that breaks down after a disease spreads through the US.

  • Last of Us Remastered Having Issues with Bugs

    last of us remasteredDespite The Last of Us Remastered selling like ice cream on a hot day, the game isn't without it's problems, and in fact the port over to the PlayStation 4 has caused quite a lot of issues across the entirety of the game.

    Luckily, Naughty Dog have already addressed that the game has a lot of issues, and they are currently working around the clock to fix up any major issues. Naughty Dog have already released a patch to fix up some problems, but other bugs still remain an issue.

    Patch 1.02 for The Last of Us Remastered is now out, and it fixes a few issues the multiplayer portion of the game have had. A press release has been released alongside the patch, and that can be read below.

    "As many of you may know, especially if you are among the many, many many people who have been playing our Factions multiplayer mode, that some people have been experiencing long wait times while trying to find a match. We've deployed several live updates over the past week in an effort to improve the matchmaking wait times. Things have definitely improved but there still remains work for us to get the matchmaking experience where we feel it should be. Patch 1.02 is our latest effort to continuing improving the matchmaking experience."

    Hopefully Naughty Dog will have everything else ironed out within the next month or two. We'll probably hear more about upcoming updates for The Last of Us shortly.

  • Sony Getting Sued for Misleading 1080P Claims

    sony sued killzoneRemember when the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One were leading up to be released? A lot of talk in the industry revolved around screen resolution for launch titles, and fan boys fought over resolutions and frame rates like it actually mattered.

    Unfortunately, both Microsoft and Sony weren't 100% honest about the frame rates and resolutions the launch games were going to offer, and it looks as if that little bit of bending the truth has landed Sony in a bit of trouble.

    According to reports, one individual has just sued Sony for a total of $5 million after declaring that one of the PlayStation 4's launch titles, Killzone: Shadow Fall would support a native 1080P resolution.

    Truthfully, the 1080P resolution in Killzone Shadow Fall isn't native at all. Whilst the single player did prove to be native 1080P, the multiplayer had a stretched resolution; the screen did display 1080 pixels high, but it only showed 960 pixels wide - the display was then stretched width ways to fit the right dimensions to match full HD.

    Whilst it's true that Killzone Shadow Fall isn't being constantly played at native 1080P, it seems like a bit of an odd thing for someone to sue for. Unfortunately, it's all very real for Sony, and it shows that not being honest when marketing new games is not something to take lightly.

    So far, nothing is definite, but if the lawsuit against Sony can prove that Sony falsely advertised Killzone's resolution and benefited off of doing so, Sony may have to cough up $5.4 million.

  • More Listings Suggest Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition for PS4 and Xbox One

    sleeping dogs ps4A little while ago, a few listings popped up on the internet that suggested a brand new HD rendition for Sleeping Dogs was heading for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but since that listing we haven’t heard anything official from Square Enix.

    This week, that hasn't changed, however a brand new listing has appeared on Amazon, giving more details on what looks to be the Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition.

    According to the new Amazon listing, Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will cost $59.99, and will be released on December 31st, 2014. Pre-orders from Amazon are already available though, which almost confirms that the new HD remake of Sleeping Dogs is actually happening.

    Whether or not the December 31st date is the actual launch date is unclear at this point in time - Amazon have been known to put inaccurate release dates on pre-order listings, however in most instances like this, the release date ends up being much sooner.

    Not many details have been listed on the new Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition Amazon listing, however a limited edition art book packaging has been listed as a pre-order bonus for the game.

    According to rumors, the $59.99 price tag for Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition will give players access to the full original 2012 game, along with $85 worth of previously released Sleeping Dogs DLC.

    Hopefully we'll hear something a little more official from Square Enix in the next few weeks - in the meantime we only have Amazon's listing to go by.

  • Resident Evil Remake Confirmed by Capcom

    resident evil remakeLast week, a few rumors spread the net regarding what sounded to be some kind of Resident Evil remake, and this week Capcom have spilled the beans.

    Out of nowhere, Capcom have revealed their plans to release a brand new Resident Evil Remake that will be the second makeover for the first Resident Evil title released for the PlayStation 1. The first rendition, which was adapted for the GameCube in 2002 was dubbed REmake, and the new Resident Evil Remake announced this week by Capcom will be an HD re-imagination of the same GameCube title.

    Once the remake of REmake has been released, Capcom will release it directly to their digital store, where players will be able to download it. It's likely a physical copy will be released for the new Resident Evil Remake too, however details for this have not yet been revealed.

    Capcom have however announced that the new Resident Evil HD version will be made available for Xbox 360, PS3, Xbox One PS4 and the PC, and will run at 1080P at 30FPS on new consoles.

    On top of this, the new Resident Evil remake will come with newly engineered 5.1 surround sound support. Capcom have also added a new scrolling camera that will follow characters as they move to the edge of the screen. This new feature will help the game to feel more seamless, and will also help the upsized 16:9 aspect ratio from 4:3 to feel a little more natural.

    So far, Capcom have set the new Resident Evil remake for a release in the first quarter of 2015.

  • The Last of Us Movie Will be "Quite Different" To the Video Game

    last of us movieIf you hadn't heard already, Naughty Dog's Neil Druckmann is currently working on a movie adaptation of The Last of Us, and he recently revealed more information on the content that the movie would portray of the Sony exclusive title.

    Whilst the Last of Us movie will still be based on the same story the video game was created for, changes will be made to the movie to help it fit on the big screen. Neil Druckmann revealed that In two hours you can't tell the same kind of story that you can in a game like The Last of Us, which is 15 hours," which suggests that the upcoming The Last of Us movie will be stripped down to ensure the experience captures the whole story basis within the limited time available.

    Adapting a book to a movie can often be a difficult task, but adapting a video game into a movie is an entirely different world. Neil Druckmann mentioned the difficult task ahead of him in an interview with MCV. "I'm in the middle of [writing] it now, and it's been super difficult because there's so much that happens in The Last of Us, even just in the cinematics, that can't fit in a film, let alone all the gameplay in-between and dialogue."

    "It's been really difficult to cut certain things out, but what I'm starting to get this is really focused narrative that's about these two characters. Some parts will be similar to the game and some parts will be quite different, but it's kind of interesting in helping me understand this other medium and its strengths compared to video games."

    Hopefully the The Last of US movie will capture the same strong storyline the video game captured.
