  • New Yoshimitsu Revealed for Tekken 7

    new yoshimitsu tekken 7Bandai Namco has finally announced that Yoshimitsu will be returning to the franchise in Tekken 7. With Yoshimitsu being one of my favorite fighting characters of all time, I was pretty excited to hear the news, but Bandai Namco has done something a little... strange with him.

    If you look back to previous Tekken games, you'll notice that Yoshimitsu never really has one appearance style. He'll always have drastically different costumes in each game. For those who don't keep an eye on the series it's easy to lose track of what Yoshimitsu actually looks like.

    The latest rendition of Yoshimitsu for Tekken 7 is beyond a shadow of a doubt the weirdest we've ever seen him before. Yoshimitsu now has a number of tentacles branching off of his face.

    Yes, that's right. We've been tricked. Yoshimitsu has been a space squid on legs all this time. Whilst you may not personally like the new Yoshimitsu looks it's important to note that there are bound to be plenty of costume options and clothing items to create a Yoshimitsu that's more in lines with the original.

    And whilst Yoshimitsu's appearance is so different, his fighting style is still the same and that's all that really matters. Right?

    So far we still don't know when Tekken 7 will be released internationally. The game is already widely available in Japan. We'll keep you updated about the launch details for Tekken 7 as more information comes in. Hopefully the western release dates will be announced soon.

  • DICE Explains Why There are no Battlefront Space Battles

    no battlefront space battlesNo space battles. Star Wars Battlefront with no space battles. I found myself saying this over and over when I first heard it, but as the idea sank in, I've become more accepting of the idea. I'm not entirely convinced Battlefront by DICE will be a great game, but I'm ready to see what they make of it.

    According to DICE, there were some interesting design choices made that decided the fate of space battles in Battlefront. DICE's Patrick Bach revealed the following statement in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

    "We want players to stay in the same environment - we don't want players to fly off and do something over *here.* It's about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry."

    The one part about this sentence that doesn't seem to make sense to me is "It's about the Battlefront experience." DICE seem to be doing a lot to the franchise to take it away from the original Battlefront experience, and by removing space battles, this takes DICE's reimagination of the game even further from the Battlefront we've come to know and love.

    I doubt Battlefront will inherently be a bad game, but DICE really have to be careful with how they treat the IP. Let's hope that Battlefront turns out to be the game we've all dreamt of when it releases in April next year. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of Battlefront, including some gameplay, at E3 later this year.

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Announced

    tony hawks pro skater 5At long last, Activision has finally confirmed that a new Tony Hawk game is coming and they've even given some details about the game along with it. The new Tony Hawk has been titled Pro Skater 5.

    As the name suggests, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 will follow on from the first four original games in the franchise. Taking the game back to it's roots, we're bound to see game mechanics and features that were dropped out of the newer titles.

    Tony Hawk himself has been suggesting for a while that a new Tony Hawk game is in the works but this is the first time we've heard anything from Activision.

    The studio responsible for the development of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is Robomodo. Whilst they're by no means a bad development studio, they're perhaps best known for their other Tony Hawk titles, Shred and Ride. Robomodo also created the HD remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

    It will be interesting to see what Robomodo can do with Pro Skater 5. They are probably the most qualified team in the world right now to be given the job of bringing Tony Hawk back to life, but we've not really seen if Robomodo can do a good job at making a "proper" Tony Hawk game yet.

    So far we do not know anything about a release date for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. A lot of the details have been saved for exclusive features for various publications so we'll have to wait a little while before we can find out more.

  • More Black Ops 3 Details Explained

    black ops 3 details multiplayerTreyarch just keep spilling the beans on Black Ops 3, which is great because the game sounds like it’s going to be a lot different to previous games developed by them. Recently, Treyarch gave details on the Black Ops 3 Pick 10 system, ADS mechanics and more.

    In Black Ops 2, the Pick 10 system was hugely praised by the COD community. Thankfully the Pick 10 system will be returning to Black Ops 3. Everything is mostly the same with the Pick 10 system, but there have been a few changes made to the way it works.

    Firstly, the Wildcards will still be in Black Ops 3. Players can equip up to six different Wildcards but each Wildcard will take up a certain amount of points as per usual.

    Interestingly, the entire attachment system will be different in Black Ops 3. Weapon optics are now placed in their own separate slot. If you use the right Wildcards you can equip up to five attachments onto a primary weapon, as well as an optic. Secondary weapons can have up to two attachments and an optic.

    You can create your own weapons, attachments attached, in the new Gunsmith feature that will be added to Black Ops 3.

    ADS has also been improved in Black Ops 3 so that aiming down the sights of a sniper is a lot smoother. Apparently powerful snipers will be balanced slightly to adjust to these new changes.

  • Gears of War HD Remaster Could be Coming Soon

    gears of war hd remasterAlthough we may not be getting the Marcus Fenix Collection like we originally thought, a standard HD remaster of the first Gears of War game may actually be coming to Xbox One soon.

    A report was released late last week by Polygon that suggested Microsoft are working on a HD remaster of the original Gears of War game. Whilst the reports come from sources that aren't completely trustworthy, it would make sense that an HD remaster of GoW was in the works.

    So many rumors have been circulating about a Gears of War remaster and sometimes even officials that have worked on Gears of War have chipped in. It’s a shame that it may only be the first Gears of War title, but it would still be good to see Gears of War breathe new light on the Xbox One.

    According to the same sources, the Gears of War HD Remaster will include better lighting and improved texture quality, so it won't just be a port with enhanced resolution. However, it's possible the remaster will be displayed at 1080P, and the source suggests that the game will run at 60fps in multiplayer.

    The single player campaign may have lower frame rates, but seeing consistently over 30 frames should be very accomplishable.

    I haven't been able to play Gears of War for a long time so seeing a new HD remaster would be amazing for me. Let's just hope that the rumors are true and that we’ll be hearing more from more official sources very soon.

  • Black Ops 3 DLC Packs and Season Pass Details Leaked

    black ops 3 dlc packsWhilst a lot of information about Black Ops 3 has been released officially, there is still a lot that Treyarch are waiting to reveal. Luckily, some details have already leaked, including details about the different DLC packs that will be in Black Ops 3.

    Black Ops 3 will have 4 different DLC packs, all of which will be part of the season pass. As usual, the season pass can be purchased up front and will cost considerably less than it would to purchase each of the DLC packs separately as they are released.

    Unfortunately we do not have details about what content will be in the Black Ops 3 DLC packs, although it could be possible that not even Treyarch are 100% sure at this point. Considering the full game hasn't even gone gold yet, it would make sense that DLC plans are not completely confirmed at this point.

    If previous Call of Duty games are anything to go by, we can expect new maps from the DLC packs, along with new weapons and maybe some extra gun camos. There may be more customization options bundled into the DLC packs. Advanced Warfare also introduced a part-by-part zombies campaign that was split up into each DLC pack, and this may be the same for Black Ops 3.

    Hopefully the standard zombies mode will be available alongside the base of the game, otherwise I think a lot of Call of Duty players will be very unhappy about Black Ops 3.

  • Multiplayer Maps for Black Ops 3 Revealed

    multiplayer maps black ops 3I'm actually quite excited about the singleplayer for Call of Duty Black Ops 3, but what's equally as exciting is the new changes being made to the multiplayer.

    The multiplayer is of course where the majority of players will be spending most of their time, so if you are like me you are probably wondering about the different maps that will be available at launch.

    Fortunately, a few details on the maps in Black Ops 3 have already been shared, along with some other multiplayer information. We only have details about three different maps so far, but that's more than enough to keep us patiently waiting a little bit longer for more information.

    The known map details are provided below.

    Hunted: A Mid to long range engagement map with a waterfall in the middle allowing for swimming mechanics

    Combine: A tight, close quarters map allowing for SMG's and shotguns to dominate with a risky wall running spot.

    Stronghold: A snowy/icy based map in the foothills of Switzerland, allowing for CQB with long range engagements

    Treyarch have also given details on the game modes that will be returning to Black Ops 3. These have been listed below.

    Team Deathmatch
    Domination
    Kill Confirmed
    Hard point
    Free for All
    Ground War
    Demolition
    Search and Destroy
    Capture the Flag

    Finally, a new rumor has suggested that a brand new weapon customization system was coming to Black Ops 3. Called GunSmith, players will be able to use this system to create their own weapon camos, using up to 64 layers to place on three sides of their weapon.

  • Limited Edition Halo 5 Xbox one Console Planned

    halo 5 xbox one consoleHalo has always been a big Xbox seller, so it's not really surprising that Microsoft and 343 Industries are planning to release a limited edition Halo 5 themed Xbox One console that will come with a copy of the upcoming game.

    So far we have very few details about the limited edition Halo 5 console, although we know that it is definitely coming. The news was revealed on Twitter by Josh Holmes, the studio head for Halo 5: Guardians.

    Details about the limited edition console are bound to come at some point closer to the release of Halo 5. We'll be able to find out about how much the Halo 5 themed console will cost and also what it will look like. It makes sense that the console will be available on the same day Halo 5: Guardians is, which is October 27. Pre-orders for the console should hopefully open a little earlier than October 27.

    Two other limited edition versions of Halo 5: Guardians have already been confirmed, with details about those being more beefy. The first version is the $100 edition which comes with "new digital content to enhance Spartan combat and exclusive items wrapped in a uniquely designed steel book."

    A much pricier $250 version is also being released. The $250 edition of Halo 5 Guardians will come with the same features as above, along with a numbered statue. Here's to wondering whether there will be an even more ultimate edition with the statue, limited edition content and the Halo 5 console.

  • Black Ops 3 Will Have Titanfall Wall Running

    black ops 3 titanfallYou may have felt like Call of Duty Advanced Warfare took a few too many pages from Titanfall's book, but apparently Black Ops 3 is going to be taking some more pages. Treyarch has officially revealed some details about Black Ops 3, including information about a special wall running ability that will be in the game.

    Just like in Titanfall, to wall run in Call of Duty Black Ops 3 you will need to approach a wall at an angle to begin wall running. You will have an invisible "energy" meter, and once this runs out, you will come back off of the wall and land on the ground. Leaping between walls can increase your energy meter, so you could potentially keep wall running for a lengthy period of time.

    Treyarch have always been great at creating multiplayer maps, so let's hope they can create some maps that allow players to really make good use of the new wall running ability.

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will also have a new swimming mechanic. Players will now be able to cross through any areas of deep water. When swimming, a player will be able to keep their gun in their hands, allowing them to shoot whilst swimming.

    I think it would be interesting to see how Treyarch implement both the new swimming and wall running mechanics into the Black Ops 3 maps. Treyarch have the potential to turn both of these features into useful game additions, but without much effort they could just end up being not-so-useful gimmicks.

  • Project Cars Will Have 110 Race Tracks on Launch Day

    project carsSlightly Mad Studios has just released a bunch of information about Project Cars in anticipation for it's launch next month. According to the development team, Project Cars will come with 30 different locations and there will be 110 different courses spread out across these locations.

    All of the locations and race tracks in Project Cars have been based on places in the real world, and from what we've seen so far Slightly Mad Studios has done a good job to replicate these locations using incredible detail.

    Whilst a lot of the race tracks are unique spots, some tracks are slight variations of the same race course. For example, the Sakito circuit in Japan has four layouts including GP, National, International and Sprint. Each of these layouts count as a separate track out of the 110 tracks that will be in the base game when Project Cars launches.

    It's surprising that Project Cars has been delayed so many times since it was first announced but this new information about the game comes as an extra confirmation that the latest release date is final.

    Project Cars is now set to release on May 8 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Slightly Mad Studios has also talked about releasing a version for the Wii U but we have not heard anything about this for quite some time now. It's likely we may hear more about the Wii U once the launch for the other consoles has come out of the gate.
