  • GTA V Will Have Huge 50GB Install Size

    gta v ps4 install sizeWe've talked a little bit in the past about large game install sizes, but today we have some crazy news to share with you. It has been rumored that Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 could take exactly 50GB of storage space from your beloved PS4's hard drive.

    That is a huge 10% of the default hard drive that comes with the PS4, and that is only for one game - this does not include any content patches or DLC that Rockstar may plan to release in the future.

    50GB may not seem like much, but it's starting to reach the point where many games require between 30GB and 50GB free for install space, and over the next few years that size may keep going up.

    For those with slow connections, this is a very large issue, and it makes paying for digital games almost impossible. It's great to see that Sony and Microsoft are now offering digital downloads for their games, but it is not a very viable option, considering that it would only take around 10 games to fill up an entire hard drive.

    For now, physical discs and Blu-rays are still the way to go, and until devices start including more storage space as standard, it's going to be a long, long time before installs overtake sales of physical sales for console video games.

    Whilst there has been no mention of the GTA V Xbox One storage size, it's likely to be very similar or identical to that of the PlayStation 4.

  • Quantum Break Gets New 10 Minute Gameplay video

    quantum break gameplay videoThis week, Microsoft Japan released a brand new video that shows off roughly 10 minutes of in-game footage of the new Xbox One exclusive title, Quantum Break. Remedy Entertainment, the developers behind the project, have been working hard on Quantum Break for a considerable amount of time now, and over time a lot of interest for the game has been gained.

    Quantum Break will be a third person action game that will have a TV series released alongside it. Players will be able to play the game through, and their actions will determine the script of the TV show.

    It's an interesting concept that other developers have tried and failed in the past, but Remedy Entertainment seem to be pretty confident with their game. Quantum Break, which will include cover based combat and a variety of time manipulation powers is probably best showcased in the new 10 minute gameplay video.

    The video focuses on the game's dark environment and the way players will be able to interact with enemy AI.

    Considering that the game is a single player only experience, it will be interesting to see how the Quantum Break TV series will play out alongside it. We're assuming that there will be certain options to choose throughout the game, and the TV script will be dependant on the choices that were picked the most by players.

    Quantum Break has been reported to be releasing within the second quarter of 2015 if Remedy Entertainment do not delay the release of the game before then.

  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Nathan Drake Model Shown

    uncharted 4 nathan drake modelNaughty Dog has just revealed a brand new screenshot which showcases Nathan Drake in their latest work-in-progress game, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

    The new screenshot, which can be seen above, shows off a 3D render of the new Nathan Drake model, which Naughty Dog have been using in Uncharted 4. As you can see, the detail on Nathan is undeniably impressive. From the pores and wrinkles on his head, to the creases on his shirt, this picture shows that Uncharted 4 really is going to look amazing.

    Naughty Dog recently addressed the public's voice and confirmed that the incredibly detailed E3 reveal trailer for Uncharted 4 earlier this year was in fact within the in-game engine, suggesting that the game is more than capable of rendering such high definition graphics.

    The new image showcasing the Nathan Drake model has been used to promote a new 3D modelling event that is being hosted by a range of developers. The event will include a variety of different shows, including a character modelling demo by Naughty Dog.

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is set for release at some point in 2015 - so far we have not received a definitive release date for the title, but it sounds as if Naughty Dog have got quite a lot of work to do on the game before they pin up a launch date to share with the world.

    We'll let you know as soon as we learn about the launch date of the game, or if any new information about Uncharted 4 is released by Naughty Dog.

  • Ratchet and Clank Remake Rumored For PlayStation Event

    ratchet and clank remakeThe Ratchet and Clank franchise has been one that many Sony fans have loved ever since the PlayStation 2, and with recent news of a Ratchet and Clank animated movie, hype for the series has never been so high.

    If you're a fan of Ratchet and Clank, then you'll probably be very excited to hear that it has been rumored that a Ratchet and Clank remake has been rumored to be in the works.

    The new game, which will be a remake of the original game for the PlayStation 2, is rumored to be releasing alongside the same time as the movie launch, and it will be made available for the PlayStation 4.

    As expected, the new remake is rumored to come with a new graphical overhaul, and some have even suggested that the game may end up looking very similar to the graphics seen in the Ratchet and Clank movie.

    Whilst nothing has yet been officially confirmed, reports suggest that the new Ratchet and Clank remake will be revealed on a special PlayStation game event, which has been set for December 6-7, 2014 in Las Vegas.

    A new Ratchet and Clank remake could be exactly what the franchise needs. It is clear that Insomniac Games haven't finished with the Ratchet and Clank IP yet, and that is shown by the current movie which is under production.

    Despite working on an Xbox exclusive right now, it seems as if Insomniac Games aren't locked into creating games just for one platform, which is great news.

  • Gearbox Studio Gets Car Bomb Threat

    gearbox bomb squadIn an odd turn of events, Gearbox Studio CEO, Randy Pitchford, recalls his encounter with a bomb disposal unit. At around 7:30PM last Friday, a bomb disposal squad was sent to the Gearbox HQ.

    Whilst most employees had gone home at this point, Randy Pitchford was still at work, and the bomb squad moved to the Gearbox HQ with the aim to 'dispose a car bomb' in the parking lot owned by Gearbox.

    Whilst the disposal unit refused to give full details as to why they had been caught out, Randy Pitchford mentioned that he did not call the bomb squad, and he was unsure why such a problem escalated in the first place.

    The most likely thing to have happened was that an individual decided to call the police to inform them of a car bomb in the Gearbox parking lot in an attempt to "prank" the company - it's a tactic that many streamers, Youtubers and companies involved in the gaming industry have had to deal with.

    Whilst it's unlikely a car bomb was ever present at Gearbox HQ, it's important for the bomb disposal unit to react appropriately to such calls, and it's unfortunate that certain individuals have the gut to waste a large amount of resources and time to "prank" targeted companies or streamers that may be in the spotlight.

    Gearbox has recently been working hard to release their new game, Borderlands the Pre-Sequel, and the game has been set for release on October 14th this year in the United States.

  • Advanced Warfare Gameplay Videos Leaked

    advanced warfare multiplayer videosA brand new set of official gameplay videos for Advanced Warfare have leaked, each showing different elements of the multiplayer gameplay associated with the game. The first video shows off a brand new remote turret score streak reward. Players will be able to place down the turret, find a quiet place to hide, and then activate the turret to control it remotely.

    In the second video, a new medal awarded in multiplayer is shown - the video shows a player getting into a large battlesuit and then killing a player to be rewarded with the "terminated" medal.

    The third video also shows off a new medal in Advanced Warfare. This medal, named Death From Above, will reward players who manage to use their jumpsuit to leap above somebody's head and take them down with a knife kill whilst airborne.

    The final video shows off the new remote turret score streak reward again - however this time it focuses on the turret weapons which can be ripped off of the turret and used on foot.

    It will be interesting to see how all of the new score streak rewards and medals will impact gameplay - hopefully there won't be anything that completely breaks the flow of the game. We'll be able to see what new score streaks are in Advanced Warfare once the game has released on November 4th, 2014.

    Advanced Warfare will be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC upon it's launch later this year.

  • Agent Locke Could be Playable Character in Halo 5

    halo 5 agent lockeAgent Locke is a new character to the lore of Halo that will make his first appearance in the live actions series, Halo Nightfall, however, the actor that plays Locke suggests the character will play a big part in Halo 5: Guardians as well.

    In fact, according to actor Mike Colter, the man who plays Agent Locke, the main protagonist in Halo 5 may instead be Agent Locke instead of the Master Chief.

    Colter revealed in a recent interview with X-One magazine that "I'm a playable character in Halo 5." Colter went on to explain that, "Once Halo: The Master Chief Collection is released, and then Halo 5 comes out shortly thereafter, you're basically going to be playing a game with me as the primary character.

    "I'll have some cool weaponry, and some cool abilities, because by that time I'll be a Spartan IV."
    "What's not known, is whether I'm a friend or foe," Colter suggested. "The relationship between Master Chief and Jameson Locke is going to be interesting. Because what's the outcome?
    We can't really confirm or deny any of this information at this point as 343 Industries have yet to respond, but it would certainly turn the scales if Agent Locke ended up becoming the main protagonist to the current Halo trilogy.
    It wouldn't be the first time players have been able to play another character in the Halo franchise - in Halo 2, half of the campaign missions were played through the eyes of the Arbiter.

  • Official Xbox One "Mini" Controller Announced

    Xbox One Mini ControllerMicrosoft have just announced a brand new controller for their Xbox One - it has been branded the Xbox One Mini controller, and as the name suggests, it's a lot smaller than the traditional Xbox One game pad.

    The Xbox One Mini controllers looks like a thinner, shiner version of the Xbox 360 controller, and it will in black, green and a black green combo color. Whilst the price of the new controller has not yet been revealed, the release date has been set for October 17th.

    The controller has been built by Power A, in co-operation with Microsoft, as an officially licensed Xbox One controller, however, in our eyes, it just doesn't look nice enough to warrant a purchase.

    It's likely the new Power A officially licensed controller will be slightly cheaper to offer Xbox One players an opportunity to grab more pads on a budget, but when it comes to controllers, we feel it's important to go big or go home.

    The new Power A controller will be wired, and no wireless option will be available, and there's no way of knowing just how well the pad will hold up - the images certainly make the controller look a lot shoddier than the official Xbox pad.

    If you're looking for something more impressive than the standard controller and don't trust the quality of the new Power A pad, you should check out our great custom controller creator and create a new Xbox One controller that looks badass and will withstand many heavy gaming sessions.

  • New Destiny Patch Nerfs Engram Farming

    destiny engram farmingAfter reaching level 20, a lot of players in Destiny have resorted to strange methods to try and collect the most amount of loot possible in a short time period in the hopes to acquire new legendary and excotic equipment.

    The most popular engram farming method involved standing in a certain spot, firing at a cave full of enemies, reloading, and then firing again as soon as they spawn, typically just 5 to 10 seconds later.

    A week ago, this area in Destiny was always occupied with players working together to farm the hell out of that cave, but Bungie has noticed this strange behaviour in players, and whilst they praised their attempts at finding a engram farming method so quickly, they have since nerfed the cave, making respawn times from enemies in certain areas much larger.

    Bungie addressed the issue by saying, "The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave."

    "The speed at which the community organised around this activity was inspiring and humbling to us."
    "But shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played. Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities."
