  • 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.

  • Aaron Greenberg says Halo 5 is Going to be Huge

    halo 5 2015So far, Halo 5 is actually looking to be a monster of a game, and thanks to Aaron Greenberg's latest comments in the Inner Circle podcast, we can get a better idea about just how huge the game is shaping up to be.

    "Halo 5 is gonna be huge. It should be one of the biggest entertainment releases of the year if we do our job right. I think what we've got with Master Chief and Locke is a marketer's dream. The game is just super-innovative. I think this is a title that 343 has dreamed of making, and they're innovating in ways that our jaws are dropping."

    "It's such a deep story. To me it's like the closest thing to playing in a real movie, you know. I love campaign. I play multiplayer and I enjoy it, but I just love to get deep in the campaign and co-op you know, and Halo was kind of the birth of that, and also at the same time has innovated the multiplayer, so I'm excited with what they're doing with Halo 5, and we'll be revealing more soon."

    Interestingly, Greenberg spent a considerable amount of time talking about Halo 5 limited edition consoles, suggesting that something that Halo fans would be excited about will be coming.

    "We have a great team that does a lot of cool custom consoles, and we'd love to make them for every title, and the challenge is that our retail partners can't take everyone, we can't manufacture twelve different versions, so we have to kind of pick our bets."

    "But I know some of the things we're planning for this Holidays, and I think you'll be pretty pleased with some of the limited edition plans, and there's some other things that we're still finalizing. But we have a lot of great games, and so I'm excited to see where we land. At this point, it's February, so we're not announcing our limited edition hardware at this point, but the teams are gonna have some good stuff, and it's good to hear there's an appetite for more."

    I for one cannot wait for Halo 5, and Greenberg is making it sound like an absolute dream game for Halo fans.

  • Dead or Alive 5 Last Round has Almost $100 Worth of DLC

    dead or alive 5 last roundWhether or not you're okay with the dozens of dollars worth of DLC content in Evolve generally comes down to how you feel about the whole practice of selling you content after the game has been completed, but it's not just Evolve that features staggering amounts of paid-for content.

    In fact, Team Ninja have recently released details on what new downloadable content will be available in their latest remaster for new gen consoles. I'm of course talking about Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, the game that is a remake of Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate, which is coincidentally a remake of Dead or Alive 5.

    I'm sure you can see what I'm getting at here. Even though Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is not going for full retail on either the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One, the game does include just under $93 worth of DLC.

    Fortunately, practically all of the DLC available is only cosmetic skins and costumes for characters, similarly to a lot of the content players can pay for in Evolve. The $93 price tag for DOA 5: LR is actually for the season pass. If you purchase every piece of DLC in Last Round separately, however, you'll possibly be looking at spending a considerable amount more.

    So, before you get mad at Evolve for trying to milk us of our hard earned cash, just remember, there are games out there that offer 79 character costumes for a crazy $93. Honestly, it's all a bit crazy, but let's just be glad that most of it, both in Evolve and Dead or Alive, is all cosmetic and has no impact on the game whatsoever.

  • Mass Effect 4 Will Feature "Emotionally Believable Characters"

    mass effect 4Let's be honest, any open world game by Bioware is always going to look nice when compared to other titles released around the same time. Mass Effect 4 should be no different, and thanks to a new job listing on Bioware's website, we can get a better idea about what kind of direction Bioware will want artists to go in the upcoming Mass Effect.

    In a latest job listing, Bioware are looking for a member to join their team that can specifically create "emotionally believable characters that allow game players to interact with the game, whether photorealistic or stylized, in a realistic and believable fashion."

    The depth of story involved in the Mass Effect franchise has always been impressive, and being able to capture and create characters that really show believable emotion will be a great way to improve the story depth and detail of characters in Mass Effect 4.

    If Bioware manage to create a game that is both highly engaging as a fun game, and as a intense, emotional driven story, I think Mass Effect could potentially be the best game in the franchise yet.

    That is a big if though - so far we have seen very little content showing off what Mass Effect 4 will be like, and most of the details of the game have been kept incredibly quiet. In fact, we aren't even sure if the game will definitely be called Mass Effect 4 or not.

  • Destiny's Cosmodrome Was Planned to be 5 to 10 Times Bigger

    destiny world sizeIf you've played through Destiny, you may have noticed that the game lacked the open world, inspiring universe feeling that Bungie was aiming for. As it turns out, the reason Destiny lacked quality may not have been down to Bungie, and a large part of the problem came down to last gen technology.

    In a new interview with Destiny's designers, Rob Adams and Deej, it was revealed that the cosmodrome area on Earth was planned to be 5 to 10 times larger than it actually turned out to be.

    "There's a lot of stuff that didn't make the cut. I think our original vision for this was something about five-to-ten times bigger, geographically, and our eyes were way bigger than our stomachs."

    One of the biggest reasons behind limiting the world size was because Bungie actually wanted players to see other players around them. Creating a big world would make it hard to find other players, especially because the Xbox 360 and PS3 were limited in regards to how many players could be in one instance at one time.

    "We ended up condensing things to be closer and closer, and one of the biggest reasons we did that was we wanted players to see other players. And when you get a space that's too big, you just don't see anybody, it gets kind of empty and lonely. And the other problem is, we have a limit to the number of combatants we can have in a space at any one time."

    Hopefully future Destiny games will be a lot more ambitious than the current Destiny game is. It would be great to see what Bungie could do if technical limitations weren't an issue.

  • House of Wolves Destiny DLC Coming Soon

    house of wolves Destiny DLCIf you are a hardcore Destiny player, you're probably pretty bored of the content the game is offering you right now. Chances are, you've mastered all of the hard raids, hit the light cap, and even the Vault of Glass isn't a challenge for you anymore. If this is you, then you'll be happy to hear that the new House of Wolves Destiny DLC is coming soon.

    Whilst the House of Wolves Destiny DLC was previously announced for march, a new rumor suggests that the content won't be available till May, later in the year. All of this information should be taken with a grain of salt though, it's hard to trust any sources until we've heard it straight from Bungie themselves.

    Either way, the same rumors are suggesting that the House of Wolves Destiny DLC will see gear reaching a maximum light level of 39. Weekly activities will also increase in level. Currently sitting at level 30, most activities like Nightfall will be bumped up to level 32.

    In total, the House of Wolves Destiny DLC should come with a new raid, a new strike, new armor, and of course some more Crucible maps for all those PVP-thirsty players out there.

    Everything is still pretty early days at the moment, and we know how Bungie are with changing their minds about content, so some of this may be true, some of it may not. Either way, the House of Wolves Destiny DLC is coming.

  • Borderlands 3 Is Next Gearbox Game

    next gearbox gameWe talked a little bit about the next Gearbox game last week, but back then, all we knew about it was that it was going to be a new game within the Borderlands IP. We still know very few details about the game, but we do now know a title, (or a subtitle at least) as well as a bit more information.

    The next borderlands has been named as Borderlands 3, so it should continue directly from where the other two left off, instead of branching off into a different direction like Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel did.

    Another very interesting piece of information shared by Gearbox recently is that Borderlands 3 will not be making it's way to any other consoles other than current gen. We do expect it will be released for PC, but besides from that, only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to get their hands on the next Gearbox game.

    This is an understandable move - the hardware in older consoles are likely to just keep the development and potential of the game to a bare minimum, and if Borderlands 3 is going to be the "big one" like Randy Pitchford previously suggested, then we are going to need as much console power as we can get.

    So far, we have no idea about a release date for Borderlands 3, although it's unlikely to be released at any point this year.

    Are you looking forwards to Borderlands 3, or are you going to pass?

  • Advanced Warfare Havoc DLC Finally Arrives on Xbox

    advanced warfare havocThe first DLC pack for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has finally arrived on the Xbox, and it can now be picked up for both the Xbox One and the Xbox 360 as part of an early access deal. The Havoc DLC will also be released for the PC and the PlayStation consoles at some point in February.

    The new Havoc DLC pack comes with a wide range of new content, including four brand new maps, and the anticipated exo zombies survival co-op mode.

    The four maps included in the Havoc DLC are Sideshow, Core, Urban and Drift. Sideshow is a shanty town built within a cargo ship. Core is within a large drilling station, and Drift is a small sized snow town. Finally, Urban is a packed city area.

    Before the Havoc DLC was officially released, two new weapons were also put out as part of the Havoc DLC pack. Season pass players were able to take hold of the weapons in the Havoc DLC earlier in the year. The weapons included a new laser AE4 Widowmaker rifle, and a direct variation of the same weapon.

    The most looked forward to feature in the Havoc DLC is the exo zombies co-op mode though, and similarly to Black Ops 2, the mode will have a set amount of missions players will be able to play through. It has been rumored that more exo zombies content will be released incrementally in each DLC after the Havoc DLC.
