  • Halo 2 Within the Master Chief Collection is Absolutely Amazing

    halo 2 within the master chief collection
    For those unaware, Halo: The MCC has just released, and it has dropped our jaws to the ground. In particular, Halo 2 within the Master Chief Collection stands out for it's amazing new cutscenes and HD graphics that have been developed specifically for this new Halo installment.

    Considering that the matchmaking has been having problems, it has given me more than enough time to hop into Halo 2 and experience the new HD rendition of what is perhaps one of the most classic video games of all time. From start to finish, the campaign is captivating and challenging, and the new cutscenes will definitely keep you from skipping through the story to focus on blowing up more covenant.

    If you are still waiting for the matchmaking to come back, we'd definitely suggest checking out Halo 2 within the Master Chief Collection because it is stunning. In fact, even if the matchmaking is back up by the time you are reading this, still head into the Halo 2 campaign, because you'll be missing out on a lot if you don't.

  • Advanced Warfare Will Get a Few Fixes Soon

    advanced warfare lagNoticed any problems in Advanced Warfare yet? If you haven’t then you are incredibly lucky. Many players have complained about various issues with the game, from bad hit detection and terrible lag, to a lack of dedicated servers and progress-ruining prestige bugs.

    Luckily, Sledgehammer Games are on the ball to make sure things get fixed as quickly as possible. At this current point in time, they already have a fair amount of fixes on their to-do list, and they should be patched to the game over the next few weeks.

    Firstly, the lack of double XP monitoring will soon be fixed so players can see how much of an impact the double XP is actually making to their levels in-game. Secondly, a few of the mechanics, including speed reloading, will be improved. On top of this, Sledgehammer will be making some adjustments to the camo unlock requirements for different weapons.

    We should also see a range of new improvements and bug fixes on top of the ones mentioned above, including the ever-so-annoying emblem reset bug that happens after a player chooses to prestige.

    It is great to see that Sledgehammer are working actively to get their game fixed, but it is a bit of a shame that these problems were present at launch in the first place.

    Have you managed to play Advanced Warfare much yet? What are your thoughts on the new game, and will you continue to play amongst all of the current problems?

  • New Killzone Shadow Fall Will get New Free Multiplayer Content

    killzone multiplayer patchIt isn't often that you hear about AAA developers completely redesigning their games, but Guerrilla, the developers of Killzone Shadow Fall, seem to be gearing up to release a brand new patch to Shadow Fall that will completely change the direction of the game.

    Once the new patch is released, players will be able to earn Valor instead of experience points - this Valor will count as a new kind of currency, and players will be able to spend their Valor on Mystery boxes that have a chance to open up random gear that would typically be award for completing challenges and missions.

    On top of the new mystery boxes, players will also be able to complete daily challenges that will be updated every 24 hours. These new challenges will reward players with extra Valor.

    Similarly to the daily challenges, a new daily login bonus will allow players who log in to the game regularly to earn extra rewards.

    Whilst no definite date has been set for this interesting new multiplayer patch for Killzone Shadow Fall, the developers suggest that the new content will be ready for launch very soon.

    We think it's great to see Guerrilla try to keep their recent FPS title going strong - it is not an easy task considering that the market is already being dominated by titles like Call of Duty and Halo.

    What do you think of the upcoming changes to Shadow Fall's multiplayer? Do you believe these changes will impact the game negatively or positively?

  • GTA Online Heists Coming Shortly After New Gen Launch

    GTA Online HeistsRemember when Rockstar promised to add Heists to Grand Theft Auto Online? It's now been over a year since it's release, and GTA 5 still doesn't have any online heists.

    For me, the heists seemed like one of the most appealing features of the GTA Online mode, but since the release of the online portion of GTA, there has been delay after delay, forcing Rockstar to push back the release of heists for a long time.

    One of the main reasons why heists for GTA Online were delayed for so long was due to the large amount of hackers that entered their way into the game, and this caused Rockstar to refocus their attention on exploits that many hackers were taking advantage of.

    Since then, Rockstar have been working on filling the new gen ports with as many new features as possible, and this has understandably left the GTA development team to put even less focus on the GTA Online heists.

    Luckily, Rockstar have addressed the online heist delays, and they have stated that heists for GTA Online should eventually be released for the game after the release of the new gen ports.

    Considering that the PC version isn't being released till January 2015, we can safely say that heists for online should be put into the game at some point in the first quarter of 2015.

    We hope that this is the case because everybody has been waiting for heists for a long time, and the waiting has been killing us.

  • Assassin's Creed Unity Gets Live Gameplay on Twitch

    AC Unity live streamAssassin's Creed is now very close to launching, and Ubisoft have been revealing all there is about the game leading up to it's launch. Over the weekend, Ubisoft hosted a stream to showcase a whole ton of Assassin's Creed Unity gameplay, and there was a lot to take in from this event.

    The livestream event that was hosted on Twitch was hosted for around 9 hours, and within this stream, a good chunk of that time was spent on streaming live gameplay from Assassin's' Creed Unity.

    The live stream showed off a bunch of interesting elements of the game, including the brand new character customization options and a look into some of the story missions available in Assassin's Creed Unity.

    The live stream also showed off the versatility available within all of the side missions within Unity, and focused on the brand new environment that has been set in France. Quite frankly, Ubisoft have done an amazing job with AC: Unity, and it looks absolutely stunning, both in terms of graphics and gameplay.

    Perhaps the most interesting part of the livestream is the segment where Ubisoft focused on the multiplayer in Assassin's Creed Unity. Multiplayer has always been a tacked on add-on to the main story, but in Unity, it does look very enjoyable and will be an integral part of the game.

    Assassins' Creed Unity will be released on November 11th for the PS4, the Xbox One and the PC in North America, November 13th for the same consoles in the UK, and December 4th for Japan.

  • Advanced Warfare Gets All-Round Positive Reviews

    advanced warfare reviewAdvanced Warfare has been out for just a week, but the reviews keep rolling in, and so far critics seem pretty happy about what the game has to offer. In fact, most professional reviews so far seem to paint Call of Duty Advanced Warfare in a good light.

    On Metacritic, the game is sitting at a nice 80, whilst user scores are around 50-60, which is understandable considering the bad press COD Ghosts received.

    However, when it comes down to it, it's clear that Advanced Warfare is miles better than it's predecessor, and the work that Sledgehammer Games have put into this game can be seen all around.

    Below, we have provided a little peak at some of the reviews shared this week.

    GamesRadar: 4/5 - Multiplayer feels wonderfully fresh, thanks to the added agility of Exo Suit boosting. Sadly, though, co-op is unimaginative, and the story fails to satisfy when compared to previous installments.
    Polygon: 9/10 - For whatever minor missteps Advanced Warfare makes with its story, it more than compensates with vision and remarkable execution. The latter has never really been Call of Duty's problem - Ghosts notwithstanding - but Advanced Warfare adds enough and moves far enough forward with its new abilities to feel like a risk. Turns out, that's just what the series needed.

    GameSpot: 8/10 - The huge change in player mobility is less of a paradigm shift and more of an overdue retooling for an 11-year-old FPS franchise, especially in a year of mobility-focused shooters. Yet for all its predictability, Advanced Warfare is a deluge of action-film bravado, and it's difficult to not be carried away by its tidal forces.

  • Detailed COD Advanced Warfare Prestige Emblems Detailed

    cod advanced warfare prestige emblemsWhilst nobody is yet the highest prestige in Advanced Warfare yet, the release of the game has allowed players to dive into the code and find out exactly what all of the prestige emblems look like.

    Admittedly, all of the prestige emblems in Call of Duty Advanced do look pretty cool, but the most interesting thing to come from the leaked prestige emblems is that there are a total of 16 prestiges in COD Advanced Warfare.

    It was revealed earlier in the year that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare would have a total of 15 prestiges, but it looks as if they have added in one more for the mix. On top of having 16 prestiges, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will have 50 ranks for each prestige, meaning you will have to level up a total of 800 times before you max prestige the game, which is pretty crazy.

    In the screenshot shown above, all 16 of the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Prestige emblems can be seen.

    COD Advanced Warfare released earlier this week, and from our first impressions we are very impressed with the game so far. It has enough new to the franchise to keep things fresh, but it still feels and looks like the Call of Duty we have come to know and love.

    It will be interesting to see how well Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has sold, considering that it is available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

  • Fallout 4 May Be Shown at VGX 2014

    fallout 4 vgxAh, the elusive Fallout 4. We keep hearing whispers and rumors about the game, but we never actually see anything official. If we are lucky, that may all be changing soon however, as it has been revealed by an insider that Fallout 4 may in fact be shown off for the first time at VGX 2014.

    That insider is Geoff Keighley, host of VGX. According to Keighley, some kind of new announcement is planned for VGX by Bethesda, and a cryptic tweet almost suggests that it will be Fallout 4.

    Of course, nothing is confirmed at this point - the reveal at VGX 2014 could be anything - Bethesda may decide to give another look into their new DOOM game, or they may have something completely else planned.

    However, if Bethesda were to announce Fallout 4, VGX would be a good place to do it. In the past, Bethesda have used VGX (or Spike TV) to make new game announcements, and in fact, The Elder Scrolls Skyrim was announced at VGX for the very first time at VGX 2010. The game then released a year later.

    If we do see Fallout 4 we will let you know - VGX 2014 will be happening on December 5th this year, so whatever Bethesda has planned, there’s just enough time to start getting excited about it.

    We would absolutely love to see a new Fallout game, but nothing is confirmed yet, so take this post with a healthily large grain of salt.

  • Cod Ghosts and Black Ops 2 Huge Double XP Promotion

    cod ghosts double xpAlthough Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is just around the corner, COD developers Infinity Ward and Treyarch have put up a brand new promotion for both of their latest games, Call of Duty Ghosts and Call of Duty Black Ops 2.

    If you play either of these games, you may want to start playing before Halloween as both of these games will be receiving double XP, starting from now, all the way up til the end of Halloween.

    For COD fans, I think this would be the perfect sprint towards the release of Advanced Warfare, which is set to land on the first week of November.

    The double XP promotion will double all experience earned from all game modes within the game, so if you want to finish up your prestiging or need to get some more squad points, we would definitely suggest you to consider playing this week.

    When Advanced Warfare launches, there will also be a short early access double XP period that will allow players to gain XP a day before the full launch date.

    This is probably the best week this year to start up a Call of Duty marathon - are you still playing either Call of Duty Ghosts or Black Ops 2, and will you make use of the double XP bonuses this week?

    And finally, will you make use of the early access Double XP from Advanced Warfare, or are you not convinced it is worth pre-ordering to get access to the extra experience?

  • Titanfall Gets New Co-op Wave Mode

    titanfall co-op wave modeWhilst a lot of player's interest for Titanfall has died out, Respawn Entertainment are still trying hard to keep things fresh and updated. Recently, I played Titanfall for the first time since it's launch period, and I must say that the game has improved tremendously.

    Now, for the first time ever, Respawn Entertainment have added a brand new Player vs AI mode that pits four pilots against waves of enemies. Players must defend the harvester against the waves, and they will lose if the harvester gets destroyed.

    In similar fashion to Call of Duty Zombies, the AI in Titanfall will become harder to deal with on each round. Each round will have a combination of different spectre, ghost and titan units, and Respawn have also added some unique units into the co-op mode.

    One of the unique units is the suicide spectre- these run at ridiculous speeds straight towards the harvester, and will explode upon touching the harvester or any other players. The second unique unit is the nuke titan - whilst these won't explode when near other players, they will automatically use their nuclear ejection if they step anywhere near the harvester.

    There are a total of five rounds in this new Titanfall co-op wave mode, and whilst the first three are easy enough to deal with, the last two are certainly a challenge, and I think that the mode is worth trying if you've become bored of the rest of the game.
