  • Six EA Games Under Development Will Be Shown at E3

    EA E3 Game Reveal

    EA has confirmed in their latest earnings report that, apart from bringing in a net revenue of $4,012 million, there are six new games planned for announced at this year's E3 event. All six games are currently under development, and no details have been given on what exactly these six games are.

    We can of course expect to hear more about FIFA World Cup 14 this year, as well as a variety of other sports games, including FIFA 15, MADDEN NFL 15, NBA 15 and NHL 15. EA may also finally give more information on the Sims 4, which has previously been announced by the video game publisher.

    EA Sports UFC has been planned for Q1 2015, so we may hear a little more about that, and EA still have plans to release a new golf title at some point in 2015. All of these titles are expected, and apart from Sims there isn't too much in this list that really gets me interested.

    However, there are a couple of other games that may make an appearance at this year's E3. The first one is Dragon Age: Inquisition - this is a title that we've seen a lot of concept art of recently, but we still haven't seen a solid vision of the game.

    The second title is of course Star Wars Battlefront. DICE already seem pretty keen to show off what they have prepared for the new Battlefront game, and I'm sure a lot of gamers around the globe can't wait to see what the Battlefield developer has done with the title.

    There's no confirmation on what six games will be shown at E3 this year, but out of these games, both Battlefront and Dragon Age: Inquisition look like safe bets.

  • Things We Might Learn From Gamescom

    Gamescom is very close now and I expect we'll see and learn a lot from the gaming event, but what can we expect to learn about the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at this year's Gamescom?

    Firstly, we're all expecting to learn about the launch date of the PlayStation 4- we're all hoping for a 2013 release and many rumors have lead many of us to believe a November release date is most likely. Hopefully we'll find out just when we'll be able to get our hands on a brand new PlayStation 4 very soon.

    We may also be given a look into when the Xbox One will be released. Recent rumors seem to point towards the Xbox One being pushed back a little bit and everyone is uncertain whether we'll see an Xbox One this year or not.

    We're also going to be hearing about a deal that will bundle a third party game with the Xbox One launch edition without bumping up the price at all. At Gamescom we'll be able to find exactly what this game is and if it will make up for the price difference between the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    If we're lucky, it'll be a game we're all planning on buying and it'll help to make the price difference more manageable, but on the other end of the scale we may end up with a game that no one really wants, and, because everyone will have it, it won't really hold any trade-in value.

    On top of this Gamescom is bound to come with tons of previews and first looks at a bunch of upcoming next and current gen games.

  • MADDEN NFL 13 ANNUAL SUPERBOWL SIMULATION PREDICTS RAVENS WINNING

    Ravens Win Superbowl in Simulation

     

    This year, Electronic Arts ran its Super Bowl simulation with Madden NFL 13, the game predicted that the Baltimore Ravens would upset the San Francisco 49ers 27-24, according to EA.

     

    Every year, EA pits the two Super Bowl contenders in their latest iteration of Madden NFL. The simulation has successfully predicted the last seven out of nine Super Bowls.

     

    The only two games they got wrong were in 2008 when the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots and in 2011 when the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers.

     

    In the video above, the game comes down to a last-minute scoring drive for the 49ers. During that drive the 49ers throw an interception in the end zone in the last 20 seconds of the game, which seals the Ravens win.

     

    For more information about this year's simulation, go to EA's website.

  • Skyrim Dragonborn: New DLC in the Works

    Skyrim DLC: Dragonborn

    Following from the Hearthfire and Dawnguard download content packs, the new Dragonborn DLC has been rumored. Although there isn't anything official to go by, Bethesda has been leaving small trails of evidence similarly to previous DLC that hints at the new Dragonborn content.

    Players have read through lines of new code released with a new system update for PC, and have come across a few lines of code perhaps hinting to the new DLC.

    The code hints to new craftable gear, going by the names of Bonemold, Chitin, Stalhrim and Nordic, of which some will be recognized from Elder Scrolls 3: Morrowind.

    It also mentions a new quest with the name of Dragonborn.

    Many have also talked about new mountable dragons and revisits to previous areas seen in the Morrowind game.

    Although nothing yet is official, the new Dragonborn DLC title is likely to contain a good amount of content, regardless of the hints within the new code.

    Players are also discussing another line of code that wasn't previously released with older DLC packs which may hint to quicker Playstation 3 access.

    The line of code, which reads as '$DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT_PS3 DOWNLOADABLE CONTENT' has got PS3 Skyrim players' hopes up, giving them the belief that the PS3 release for the new DLC will not be delayed unlike previous DLC titles. Some players have gone as far to say that Bethesda will make the content exclusive to PS3, to make up for their previous mistakes on the console.

    Will you be getting the new Dragonborn DLC?

  • AbleGamers Open First Accessible Arcade

    On October 10, The AbleGamers Foundation opened up its first arcade for people with disabilities in the Washington D.C. public library. This is the first permanent arcade for disabled gamers and it is an addition to the library.

    "Our partnership with the AbleGamers Foundation brings the freedom, fun, and independent of video gaming to DC residents with disabilities," said Chief of DC Public Library's Adaptive Services Division, Venetia Demson in a press release.

  • Ubisoft’s Big Reveal: Watch Dogs

    Watch Dogs

    In my opinion, Ubisoft won this year's E3. They launched games on every possible platform and all of them looked amazing. They also had a nice little surprise for us at the end of their presentation. Ubisoft Montreal had been working on a new IP for a while which had been kept completely hidden. The game is called Watch Dogs and from the initial gameplay demo I can already tell you that this is going to be a keeper.

    The game takes place in the future where everything electronic is run by a Central Operating System termed CTOS. So basically everything (subways, security cameras, traffic lights etc.) is run by the CTOS. Thanks to this, the Private Companies who control the system are nearly untouchable. Information is everything in this era.  Somehow our main character, Aiden Pierce, has gotten access to this system. He most probably hacked into it, but the back story hasn't been revealed yet.

    Due to that, not only does Aiden have info on everyone in the city he resides in, he also has control over everything that is hooked up to the CTOS. The whole city is now basically his weapon and he can manipulate everything within it to obtain his objective.

    The game is a GTA-like 3rd person shooter and it looks phenomenal. I was especially impressed by the voice acting and dialogue as I feel this is a crucial trait mostly ignored in games. The combat, cover and shooting mechanics also looked VERY tight. I especially love the part in the demo where he jumps across the car, takes out a foe and simultaneously picks up his weapon. Wow. (Check out the demo through the link below.)

    But, the core of the game is "hacking". In the demo Aiden used his phone to hack security cameras and other people's phones in order to listen in and also to jam them. In the end he hacked into the traffic lights to create an accident which allowed him to get his hands on his target. I bet there are going to be several ways one can pull off a certain objective which gives the game a very sandboxy feel.

    What was shown in the demo was just a sneak peek of what we can expect to see and I can't even imagine the possibilities of this hacking ability. Nothing aside from these tidbits have been revealed for now but, we will keep you posted as more details emerge. Till then, check out the official teaser trailer and the E3 gameplay demo.

    Demo:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcMRkyoHKeA

    It's extremely likely our stealth adjustable controller will be compatible with Watch Dogs, so be sure to watch our news and blogs regularly. During 4th of July we featured a modded controller sale with the above controller available, but our Stealth Adjustable mod is always available.

    Our Stealth Adjustable controller comes with 10 preset rapid fire speeds and the additional option to customize your own rate of fire. You can find up to 15,000 rates of rapid fire in our Adjustable Pulse Rapid Fire!

  • Microsoft Shows off SmartGlass

    Last week during E3, Microsoft showcased their newest tech to compete with Nintendo's Wii U and Sony's PS3 and PS Vita interconnectivity.

    SmartGlass was revealed and is an app for phones and tablet devices that turns them into a secondary screen for your Xbox 360. While game developers may be working on interesting ways to incorporate this new technology it also turns your tablet or phone into an excellent media companion. Microsoft provided an example of how it could be used on non-gaming experiences. The example they used was using Smartglass on your tablet while you enjoy an episode of Game of Thrones. The app could identify which episode you're watching and could sync with your particular position in the show to give you additional information on characters and the physical location the characters are in within the universe.

    In addition to being an additional display in our favorite games it can also function as a multiple purpose controller to allow you to use your Xbox as a computer and more easily navigate and use Internet Explorer on your Xbox.

    It will take a few months before we see anything compelling in the game space regarding this tech, but is it something you're excited to see or are you ready for an Xbox 720 and the new generation of games?

     

  • PAX EAST To Stay in Boston Till 2023

    PAX East Pledges to Stay in Boston for 11 More Years

    The organizers for PAX East and the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority (MCCA) announced recently that the popular video game convention will remain in Boston until 2023. The organizers are hoping to grow the number of attendees to around 100,000, making it one of the largest public gaming conventions in the world (behind Germany's Gamescom and Japan's Tokyo Game Show).

    PAX East will also make a sizable donation to digital games education, as Massachusetts Digital Games Institute will receive a $50,000 contribution this year alongside an annual donation of $25,000 a year. Totally to $325,000 over the next 11 years.

    "Over the last year, MassDiGI has worked towards building a strong public-private partnership across industry, academia, and government in support of the state's digital games cluster...PAX East's commitment to bringing the largest East Coast video gaming convention to Boston and providing an annual donation to MassDiGI complements ongoing collaboration to increase economic activity within the state and foster knowledge-transfer between Massachusetts and the rest of the world."
    ~Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray.

    "We're thrilled to host PAX East for at least 10 more years...hosting an event for the next decade that draws gamers from around the globe to Boston is fantastic, but the international attention it brings to the incredible technological advancements coming out of the Commonwealth is a win-win."
    ~James E. Rooney, executive director of the MCCA

    Beyond the academic cash, PAX East naturally brings in a lot of revenue to the city through hotels and dining, as most big name conventions do to cities that host them. So Boston will likely be the focus of attention for gamers for the next 11 years.
