  • GTA V Should Run at 1080P

    GTA V 1080PGood news to those that are obsessed about frame rates and resolution - Grand Theft Auto V should be able to run at 1080P on the PlayStation 4. Whilst the news doesn't come from Rockstar themselves, this information comes from Official PlayStation Magazine, so the information shared is most likely to be true.

    Within the GTA V PS4 section in the magazine, it reads, "Glimmering 1080P presentation, fresh wild-life, 100 new songs, a bumper version of GTA Online, this is a sandbox you've dreamt about ever since you slotted Sony's angular baby under your TV."

    We've already heard about the new songs being added to the radios in GTA V for next gen, and the fresh wildlife has also been mentioned by Rockstar.

    We've come to expect a more improved version of GTA Online too, so the 1080P rumors within the Official PlayStation Magazine probably will turn out to be real information.

    Whilst this magazine focuses on the PlayStation 4 version of GTA V, it is likely that the Xbox One will receive just as many features, and I don't see why there won't be 1080P options on there either.

    If the Xbox One GTA V doesn't support 1080P there is bound to be a lot of controversy to follow.

    One other thing that the Official PlayStation Magazine fails to mention is anything about frame rate. We can of course expect to see 30FPS, but will we manage to get any more than that when playing at 1080P?

    Considering GTA V is such a large game, I would not be surprised if the frames were capped at 30, but we will have to see.

  • New Subclasses Rumored for Destiny DLC

    destiny new subclassesAlthough we know we can expect some new story missions for Destiny in future DLC packs, what else can we expect? So far, nobody really knows, but a new rumor suggests that the game may receive new subclasses in future DLC, along with other interesting content.

    The most interesting part of the rumors involves three new subclasses, one for each class. Below, we have provided information about each of the three new subclasses.

    Titan - Crusader
    Super: "Purge" You shoot this giant horizontal column of light directly in front of you. Upgrades can thicken the cylinder (default is size of Guardian, upgrade is about 200% increase), have the column shoot through walls, or shoot a second column behind you as well.
    Grenades:
    - 1 Throws 3 small fire grenades at once. Think like a very small version of the Warlock Void special.
    - 2 Drops grenade behind guardian. Designed for escape tactics when being chased.
    - 3 Self planted grenade. Button activates grenade for 8 seconds. Any melee damage taken at that time sets grenade off, barely doesn't kill a guardian by itself.

    Warlock - Arc Thrower
    Super: "Jupiter's Storm" Creates an orb about the size of a Servitor slightly above and in front of you. The orb floats in the air and shoots lightning out at anything that come near it. Upgrades can increase range, can cause chain lightning, or cause the orb to spawn further away from the player character.
    Grenades:
    - 1 Arc Grenade that detonates on second button input.
    - 2 Grenade the transfers health to the Warlock.
    - 3 Fence Grenade - Creates small electrified fence. Sticks to walls like the Titan Lightning Grenade and lasts about half as long.

    Hunter - Trapper
    Super: "Void Well" Drops a Void well on the floor. Enemies inside the Void well cannot jump, and have reduced movement speed. Upgrades can reduce all enemy movement, prevent enemies from using abilities, or increase radius of Void Well.
    Grenades:
    - 1 Generic void damage grenade, doesn't bounce. Sticks to any surface.
    - 2 Bolas that act as a sticky, but do minimal damage while greatly reducing targets movement speed, and prevents them from jumping.
    - 3 Caltrops. Throw them on the ground. Not super easy to see. A large amount of them on the ground, stepping on one detonates it for a small amount of damage.

    What are your thoughts on these rumors?

  • Halo CE 1080P Trailer Shows Off OP Pistol

    Back in the golden days of Halo Combat Evolved, the pistol was the gun to use. Yes, snipers and rocket launchers were fought for, but the overwhelming power of the pistol made it a force to be reckoned with at all times.

    A new gameplay trailer showing off the Master Chief Collection in full 1080P had a selection of Combat Evolved multiplayer, and we couldn't help but notice just how over-powered the pistol seemed to be in the gameplay shown.

    When compared to pistols of many modern shooters to today, the magnum in Halo CE was just undeniably amazing, and we're happy to see that 343 haven’t made any changes to it on the Combat Evolved portion of the Halo Master Chief Collection multiplayer.

    Another interesting thing to take from the latest trailer is that there are now achievements in all games - gameplay clearly shows players earning achievements whilst playing on CE maps, which suggests that the game has had a slight overhaul, and I must say, it looks oh-so satisfying to get a set of pistol kills in Combat Evolved.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection is set for release next month. The full release is November 14th.

    Are you going to be purchasing Halo: The Master Chief Collection? So far, all of the Halo fans I have talked to have been very excited about the Master Chief Collection, and I must admit, I’m looking forward to giving it a go myself, too.

  • Project Cars Delayed Till 2015

    project cars 2015Whilst DriveClub has finally released this month, the other upcoming racing sim we've all been waiting for has had yet another delay, pushing it back past the holiday season and on to next year.

    The game I'm talking about is of course Project Cars, and the developers have recently confirmed that after talks they have decided to push back the game, but the reason for the delay may not be what you may have expected.

    Considering that Project Cars was set for a release in November, it's understandable to think that Bandai Namco may have wanted to push it back a month or two, simply because there are just so many other games planned for release next month. (Call of Duty, Halo, GTA V, to name a few..)

    However, Bandai have taken the plunge to release the game next year instead, and their reason behind this involves both wanting to stay away from the huge competition in November, and to have more time to fine tune the title.

    "Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience," Ian Bell of Slightly Mad Studios revealed.
    "Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We're eager for you all to see what we've been working on in just a few months."

  • 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.
