  • Tekken 7 Has Launched in Tokyo

    tekken 7 launchedAs expected, Tekken 7 has now launched in Japan, and from what we have seen so far it is looking like a pretty impressive game. Tekken 7 was already available in a select few arcade machines across Tokyo, but the game has now fully launched to console, and those in Japan can head in store to pick up a copy of the game.

    Tekken 7 has released with 20 different characters, although more are planned as extra content later on in the game's life. Five of these characters are brand new to the game, one of which is the end boss for the story mode.

    On top of the new characters, two new mechanics have been introduced to Tekken 7. The first is called Rage Art, and this gives players the ability to perform a series of unblockable moves that do a portion of the standard damage of the attacks they perform.

    The next new mechanic is called Power Crush, and it will allow players to continue attacking, even whilst being attacked by the enemy. This ability does have it's limitations though, and it can only stop damage from high and mid attacks.

    Both of these features seem aimed towards the more casual play style, giving players a chance at fighting back against their friends whilst in a fight that seems almost unwinnable. It will be interesting to see how these new mechanics affect high competitive play.

    So far, we're unsure when the game will release globally, but it shouldn't be too long before we see a worldwide release.

  • Bloodborne has Now Gone Gold

    bloodborne goldAt long last, From Software's new PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne has gone gold, which means the development team have done everything they need to do to ship the product to disc in preparation for the launch of the game.

    I'm personally quite excited to see Bloodborne - from what we've seen so far, the game looks like a great example of what From Software are known best for. Their Dark Souls and Demon Souls games have always been great, but Bloodborne takes a slightly different path by offering a more forgiving gameplay experience for players.

    When I say more forgiving, I do mean that you're not going to die as often, but that doesn't mean we can't expect Bloodborne to be a nice challenge. In fact, I think it will be a very challenging game, but I'm hoping the frustration that was found by many players whilst playing Dark Souls 1 and 2 won't be present in Bloodborne.

    Whilst Bloodborne has already seen a delay, going gold means we will now not see any more delays, and the previously announced release dates of March 24 and March 27 are now set in stone.

    The March 24 release is for North America, whilst the March 27 release is for the UK. Other region release dates are around these two dates. The full release schedule can be seen below.

    NA - March 24, 2015
    EU - March 25, 2015
    Japan - March 26, 2015
    UK - March 27, 2015

  • Bungie Details their Plans for New Destiny Update

    destiny updateBungie have revealed details to release a new patch that will add new content and create a stepping stone between now and the House of Wolves DLC planned for later this year. All details for the update have not yet been given, but Bungie have revealed a number of features we can expect to see when the update is released.

    The new update details, as seen on Bungie's blog, can be seen below. We can expect to see these changes in the new update.

    Vault Space - We know you need more space to collect all the treasures you gain from your missions, and more gear is on the way.
    Raid Fixes - There are times when Atheon and Crota can be uncooperative, so we're tackling their worst bugs.
    Audio and Visual - Not everyone wants to see or hear a game the same way, which is why we’re looking at providing more options.
    PVP Ammunition - The Crucible team wants to change the way ammo crates dictate the flow of a battle.
    Strikes - The numbers tell us that there are some missions that are successfully completed far less than others, inspiring us to look at why people quit.

    Community manager David Dague also talked about how Bungie go about working on Destiny and improving the experience for the playerbase. "Ever since Destiny went live, there have been various teams at Bungie," Dague mentioned.

    "We're all working on Destiny, but different teams have goals for different projects.

    "We've specialized to meet the needs of this sprawling community. Each class of developer has a specific focus. Some of them are creating new adventures for your Guardian - those both revealed and still secret."

    The exact release for the new update has not yet been planned, but we'll probably hear more about it in the near future.

  • Goat Simulator is Coming to Xbox

    goat simulator xboxI've got the exact news you've been wanting to hear. Coffee Stain Studios have announced that Goat Simulator will be coming to the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One. Worthy of more than a few game of the year awards, Goat Simulator is an incredibly realistic simulation game that gives you an unprecedented view into the life of a goat.

    There are just no other animal sims out there that quite match the prowess of Goat Simulator, and Microsoft made a very good choice allowing Coffee Stain Studios to bring it to the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

    If you've seen the game, you'll of course no everything above is just a little far from the truth. Goat Simulator is actually a strangely put together sandbox game that gives you access to a world of physics based environments. The whole fun of Goat Simulator is to basically see what kind of crazy things you can make happen with a goat and a world of objects that react crazily when hit into.

    The game is filled with all sorts of glitches, but Coffee Stain wanted it to be this way - the game is meant to be taken lightly, and is just a bit of fun to have when you have a few minutes to spare.

    So far, we don't have any details about the exact release date of Goat Simulator or the price, but we do know that the game will be releasing at some point in April.

  • Halo 3 ODST for Master Chief Collection Still in Development

    halo 3 odst mccIf you remember back to near when The Master Chief Collection was released, you may recall 343 Industries announcing that they will be releasing ODST as part of the collection to say sorry for the game's launch problems.

    Even though we haven’t heard anything about the remastered version of ODST for a while now, 343 Industries haven't stopped developing it. In fact, a new blog post has just been put up on the 343 Industries blog, detailing their progress with the ODST game and the state of the Master Chief Collection.

    Firstly, 343 Industries have revealed that there will be a new update in April that will further improve the game and fix any issues that are still plaguing the game. 343 Industries have also shown off two images. One shows ODST in all it's glory, and the other shows the new Halo 2 remake planned for The Master Chief Collection. The remake is Relic, and it should be coming alongside ODST.

    Unfortunately 343 did not reveal when ODST or Relic will be released, but it will be made free for all players that gave the Master Chief Collection a play before December 19th. We're assuming the new content will be put up as DLC for any players who started playing The Master Chief Collection after December 19th.

    Do you think 343 Industries deserved to be forgiven for their early mistakes with the Master Chief Collection, or do you think releasing ODST and the Halo 2 relic map remake just isn't enough?

  • Jason Voorhees Will be In Mortal Kombat X

    jason voorhees mortal kombat xIf you didn't know already, NetherRealm have planned a special season pass, called the Kombat pack, which will come with a range of additional features. The Kombat pack will cost $30, and the most interesting part about it are the four characters that will be added to the game's character roster.

    This week, NetherRealm revealed that one of the first characters for the Kombat pack will be none other than Jason Voorhees, the star of the Friday the 13th movie series. Well, he's really the antagonist, but let's be honest, Voorhees is the real reason everybody watches those movies.

    In Mortal Kombat X, Jason Voorhees will be wearing his classic hockey mask, and he'll also be wielding the machete he's renowned for using.

    Whilst the other characters of the Kombat Pack have not yet been revealed, NetherRealm has revealed that the pack will include "Klassic Kombatants" as well as special guests. Considering there will only be four new characters in the Kombat pack, and plurals have been used for Klassic Kombatants and special guests, it makes sense that we'll see two old time Mortal Kombat players return, on top of Jason Voorhees and one more special guest.

    Below, the characters we now know about for Mortal Kombat X have been revealed.

    Standard game characters-

    Goro
    Jackson Briggs
    Johnny Cage
    Kano
    Kitana
    Kung Lao
    Mileena
    Raiden
    Reptile
    Scorpion
    Sonya Blade
    Sub Zero

    Kombat pack-
    Jason Voorhees
    Two "Klassic Kombatants"
    One special Guest

  • PS4 Getting Firmware Update with New Features

    ps4 firmware updateAccording to new rumors, we can expect to see a very large new firmware update for the PlayStation 4 in March that will bring a range of new features to the system. The main source of these rumors comes from industry insider, Tidux, who has been well known to get his rumors right.

    According to Tidux, the new firmware update will hit at the end of March, on or around the 29th of the month. Unfortunately, Tidux did not mention what new features will be released, other than "big features" are coming.

    It is a shame Tidux could not go into more detail, so we can only speculate about what features could be released at the end of this month. There are still many features that are missing from the PlayStation 4 that could be added, and there are probably many more that Sony want to add that we've never heard of as well.

    Some believe the new update could include the suspend/resume feature that was previously announced to release to combat the lack of DLNA on the PlayStation 4. Others suggest we could see a range of smaller features such as the ability to better organize and manage system files, songs and more content on the PS4 hard drive.

    Whatever happens, it looks like we'll have to do a little bit of waiting before full details are announced by Sony. Hopefully we will receive some information from them before the end of March.

  • Sony's PlayStation Plus Free Games Delayed

    playstation plus free gamesUnfortunately, Sony has failed to release March's PlayStation Plus free games, and Sony has released a small statement explaining why this has happened.

    According to Sony's Fred Dutton in a new PlayStation blog post, they have not managed to finalize the lineup in time for March, and it may be a little while before they are given the go ahead to release the free PS Plus titles.

    "I appreciate you're all really keen to see the line-up and that it's frustrating having to hang on a bit longer than usual. Alas, we're still not quite ready to make the announcement."

    "I can't give you a firm time at present as to when the post will go live, but we're working to get it to you as soon as possible. It may well be next week at this stage."

    By the sounds of things, it is looking unlikely that we'll see the free games lineup in the few days of March, and we may even have to wait till the second week of March before the games are live. This is unfortunate, but Sony does need to confirm six different games with up to six developers before they can go ahead with deals like this.

    Whilst Sony has had a few hiccups this month, Xbox has already released their lineup, touting three great games, including Rayman Legends, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite.

    So far, we have no idea what games will be part of the PS Plus lineup, but as soon as we know we shall let you know.

  • Metal Gear Solid V Gets Odd Announcement Teaser

    Metal Gear Solid VKonami has just posted up a countdown timer on their website. The timer started at 48 hours, and it has been dropping ever since. Whilst there isn't much detail about what the timer is for, it is clear that once the timer is finished, there will be some kind of announcement for Metal Gear Solid V The Phantom Pain.

    The timer will end this Wednesday, at which point the announcement will be made. Even though Hideo Kojima and Konami have revealed quite a lot about Metal Gear Solid V, there is still a lot they have kept up their sleeves, so it's hard to guess what the reveal could be for.

    We are guessing that the reveal could be quite important though - the 48 hour countdown would be pretty extreme for a small announcement. Some fans of the franchise have suggested that we may see something related to the open world stealth takedowns that were rumored in the past.

    Unfortunately, we're not so sure. We're even less sure about where the announcement could take place. This week the Game Developer's Conference is going on, so it could be possible that Hideo Kojima will make a live announcement at GDC.

    Otherwise, we may just get some kind of online reveal. What I'm hoping for is a full release date announcement, along with a very important gameplay feature that has yet to be revealed. If you could find out anything about The Phantom Pain what would it be?

  • Valve and HTC Team Up To Announce New VR Headset

    htc viveHTC has just announced a brand new product that they have been working on in partnership with Valve. The new product is a virtual reality headset that has been manufactured to compete with other VR headsets from manufacturers such as Samsung and Oculus.

    The new headset has been given the name HTC Vive, and unlike other virtual reality headsets, it will act as a standalone device, and no other devices, such as smartphones, will be needed to operate it.

    It seems HTC are at the forefront of development for the HTC Vive, and Valve has simply partnered with them to ensure themselves a space in the newly born virtual reality scene that has been growing over the last few years.

    Peter Chou, HTC's vice chairman, made a statement about the HTC Vive.

    "We believe virtual reality will totally transform the way we interact with the world. Virtual reality will become a mainstream experience for the general consumer the possibilities are limitless. Viewing awesome scenery, attending real time concerts, learning history, watching an incredible movie, reliving memories through photos or even shopping will never be the same in virtual reality."

    It's clear that the Vive will be used for games, but HTC are looking to reach other audiences besides from just gamers, too. Hopefully we'll see some success from the device, which is planned to release this Holiday season.

    Do you think Valve and HTC have a chance to make it in the virtual reality game? It would be great to see something big happen with the HTC Vive, but only time will tell.
