  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Assassins' Creed Unity Live Demo Showcased

    assassins creed unity demoThis week Ubisoft shared an eight minute long video at San Diego Comic-Con showing off gameplay footage of their latest title, Assassins' Creed Unity. Whilst the footage hasn't been professionally released to the public, a (rather shaky) recording of the eight minute live demo has been making rounds on the web, and despite it's rather poor quality, the game is looking pretty good.

    Assassins' Creed Unity is said to take the previous games in the franchise and improve upon the core experience those games have offered by making the gameplay experience feel more streamlined and open. For example, in Assassin's Creed Unity, in some instances failing a mission will not force the player to restart, and will instead force them to find another way to amend the mistakes they made before going for the main objective that players tried to accomplish in the first mission.

    Assassins' Creed Unity will also have a large focus on online co-operative content, which will be separated from the singleplayer gameplay. As expected, thanks to the new hardware in the PS4 and the Xbox One, Unity is expected to look a whole lot nicer, and pretty much every element from background details to combat animations will have an overhaul.

    Assassins' Creed Unity is set for release this year on October 28th, and will be available on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and the PC. Last gen consoles, such as the Xbox 360 and PS3, will not receive a version of AC: Unity.

  • New Multiplayer The Last of Us DLC Planned

    last of us dlcDespite Naughty Dog recently putting a lot of effort into The Last of Us Remastered for the PlayStation 4, they still have been working on plans for more The Last of Us content, namely new DLC.

    However, unlike the first DLC pack, any future content for The Last of Us will be exclusive to multiplayer, leaving the main story untouched.

    Whilst the story of The Last of Us is it's main selling point, it makes sense that Naughty Dog don't want to water it down with DLC content that isn't perhaps too related to the main story, and any extra multiplayer content will most likely be appreciated.

    When asked about DLC, community strategist for Naughty Dog, Arne Meyer stated that "We just wanted to say when we released the Remastered version, we know there's a lot of DLC out there, and that we weren't going to stop supporting both the PS3 and PS4 versions. We do have some DLC planned [but] it'll be multiplayer-focused. We're not ready to talk about the details yet, but throughout the rest of the year we'll have some DLC drops."

    What are your thoughts on Naughty Dog's stance on multiplayer DLC for The Last of Us? I personally haven't had much time in the multiplayer portion of the game, but it's certainly peaked my interest at times.

    The Last of Us Remastered, which comes bundled with all current DLC for the PS3 version of the game, will be released July 29th.

  • Dark Souls 2 May Come to Xbox One and PS4

    dark souls 2 xbox oneDark Souls has managed to make a pretty big name for itself recently, and I think the developers behind it, From Software, have done an incredible job to offer a really unique RPG experience. I've yet to complete the game, but I've enjoyed the game a lot since I first got my hands on it.

    I'm sure this is the case for many players, so I can imagine it's sparked a lot of curiosity between those that haven't yet played it. If you sold your PS3 or Xbox 360 to get a brand new console from either Microsoft or Sony, than you probably know what I'm talking about here.

    Luckily though, it could be very possible that a Dark Souls 2 port for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One could happen. When asked about a possible cross-gen port by Edge, From Software director Yui Tanimura replied with, "We have not put any thought into this yet, So I unfortunately can't answer at this point."

    Whilst this means that From Software haven't already started a PS4 and Xbox One port, it also hasn't ruled out the possibility of it happening in the future. Dark Souls 2 has already been incredibly popular for seventh gen consoles, so I'm sure a port to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 would be appreciated by many fans of the franchise.

    Whilst From Software are currently developing Bloodborne, it's not out of the question to hope that a Dark Souls 2 port could also be worked on.

  • What is the Future of Call of Duty?

    Call of Duty: Black OpsThe next game in the Call of Duty franchise is Advanced Warfare, a futuristic shooter in the hands of Sledgehammer games, a developer who, whilst not unfamiliar with the series, is certainly having their first shot at creating a solo Call of Duty experience.

    Advanced Warfare seems to offer a decent amount of content to make it feel fresh to COD players, but it's still going to feel like Call of Duty, which I think is what makes the franchise so popular in the first place.

    However, Advanced Warfare is only the beginning; EA still plan to churn out a new Call of Duty game every year for the foreseeable future, so what do the other Call of Duty developers have planned?

    Earlier this week, we mentioned a rumor suggesting World at War 2 may be the Call of Duty title for 2015, and that got me thinking.

    If Sledgehammer are in charge of Advanced Warfare, and Treyarch are reportedly working on a new world war two game, it would make sense that Infinity Ward are straight in the middle, working on their Modern Warfare series.

    If this is the case, then we'll have three completely separate Call of Duty experiences that could be very different from one another. Technically, we could have three separate COD franchises from the three developers, and if this is the case, I think this across-the-board approach to different settings and environments should keep all FPS players happy.

    For now though, this is just speculation. Whilst Advanced Warfare is well under development, there is no solid evidence for World at War 2, and absolutely no details have been given on Infinity Ward's next title.

    Where ever the Call of Duty franchise decides to go Evil Controllers will be here to create the best modded controllers possible. We will keep our controller software up-to-date with all the new technology and continue bringing the Master Mod. Check us out at: www.EvilControllers.com

  • Ryse 2 Cancelled Due to Crytek Financial Struggle

    ryse 2 cancelledI was surprised to hear that a second Ryse title was ever even planned in the first place, but it turns out that Ryse 2, the sequel to the first Xbox One exclusive by Crytek will most likely be canned, due to various financial issues Crytek is currently dealing with.

    Rumors about Crytek's financial struggle have been spreading for a few months now, and it seems all we hear from the company today are in regards to their inability to pay the bills.

    However, the true cause behind the alleged cancellation of Ryse 2 simply comes down to a disagreement between Crytek and Microsoft. It seems Microsoft was happy to fund the cost for a Ryse sequel, but only if Crytek gave the full rights to the IP to Microsoft.

    Despite lots of talk about Crytek's bad financial position, it seems they are still going full steam ahead with their latest announced title, Homefront: The Revolution. However, it's possible the new Homefront game may never make it to retail either, as many developers working for Crytek are complaining about lack of pay, and many have left various Crytek studios across the world due to these issues.

    It's likely Crytek won't have a very bright future ahead of them unless they can somehow recuperate their current financial losses. I'm not too bothered about a lack of a Ryse sequel, but it would be nice to see Homefront: The Revolution make it to reality.

  • Gran Turismo 7 2014 Release unlikely

    gran turismo 7 2014Development for the first PS4-based Gran Turismo game is well under way, but it's unlikely the title will ever be released this year. A seventh Gran Turismo title was bound to happen, we've just entered a new generation of consoles, and Sony's front runner racing title needs to show it's face on the PlayStation 4 at some point or another, but so far it's looking more likely that Gran Turismo 7 will release some time in 2015.

    According to Kazunori Yamauchi, the next Gran Turismo title will not be a prologue like many previously expected it to be, and it will be as much of a fully featured game as any other Gran Turismo title has been thus far.

    Whilst a lot of work went on the sounds in Gran Turismo 6, the seventh title in the series will be a true milestone for the franchise, as a lot of work will be put into the overall gameplay mechanics, and Yamauchi explained that players should expect a lot of major game changes in GT 7.

    Gran Turismo 7 should also adopt the huge catalogue of cars already available on GT 6, however some of the cars may end up making it into the premium car catalogue.

    Gran Turismo has always been an amazing racing franchise, but with competitors like Drive Club and The Crew being released shortly, will GT 7 be able to live up to it's expectations? Hopefully, we'll find out soon enough.

  • Watch_Dogs Is Fastest Selling Game in Ubisoft History

    Watch_Dogs SalesDespite constant complaints about frame rate, resolution and game graphics in Watch_Dogs by the gaming community, Ubisoft's recently released open world title has been incredibly well received by the public.

    In fact, Watch_Dogs has been so well received that it has been titled the fastest selling title in all of Ubisoft's history. No other game published or developed by Ubisoft has managed to sell as many copies as Watch_Dogs has within a 24 hour period, which really is quite impressive, considering Ubisoft have been the driving force behind many great franchises, including Assassins’ Creed and Far Cry.

    So, I'm sure you're wondering exactly how well Watch_Dogs has sold, and how that compares to other similar titles like Grand Theft Auto V. Ubisoft recently announced that Watch_Dogs has sold more copies in 24 hours than any of their other titles, but details on just how many copies were sold has not yet been revealed.

    Grand Theft Auto V managed to sell a staggering 12 million units in just one day, and one of Ubisoft's most sold titles, Assassins' Creed 3 sold just 7 million in one week. So, whilst Watch_Dogs has done Ubisoft proud, it's unlikely it has reached the success of the GTA franchise by a long shot.

    Despite GTA still being a whole lot more popular, the idea behind Watch_Dogs was 5 years in the making, and after such a long development cycle, we've been handed a game that has a solid gameplay concept that can deliver hours of open world fun.
