  • Details about Kojima's The Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes Come to Light

    Metal Gear solid V

    When we saw the mysterious reveal for 'The Phantom Pain' at the VGAs, many Metal Gear fans jumped to the conclusion that the reveal was for in fact a new Metal Gear game.

    News from Konami about this was unapparent until finally at GDC Kojima revealed the truth, and unsurprisingly the fans were right. In fact, Phantom Pain and Ground Zeroes came together to make Metal Gear solid V, and Kojima spilt all the beans as to why he didn't just make Metal Gear Solid V more obvious earlier in an interview with Game Trailers.

    "There are several reasons for this. One is that I think core fans, myself included in this, wanted to do something really interesting in the social space. You know I think it's been kind-of dull lately and we wanted to do something to energize the community," he explained. "The second reason for doing this is we wanted to evaluate the FOX Engine. So we wanted to put the game out without revealing that it was Metal Gear Solid and just see how well it would do just based on the visuals of the FOX Engine."

    In the end, Kojima also revealed that the whole trailer, including the strange 'Moby Dick Studios' was a little fun inside joke that Kojima wanted to play along with his fans, and many did play along.

    "We knew from the beginning that it wouldn't be a secret - we wanted fans to realize it. It was kind-of service to the fans saying, 'Hey, here's the inside joke. We know that you know what it is, but just play along with it.' We're happy that fans did realize what it was and did play along with it."

    The new Metal Gear will have a new voice actor for Snake and Big Boss, and although Kojima hasn't given a name, he says that it's almost a reboot in the series, and he wants to reflect this in the voice of the protagonist.

  • Skyrim 1.9 Patch Fixes 79 Bugs, Releasing on Consoles "Later this Month."

    Skyrim 1.9 Patch

    Skyrim is a big game, but because of the vastness of the content within the game, it can be hard to make sure all of the game is perfect before release, and Bethesda has been working hard to fix any bugs or glitches that ruin the gameplay experience since the launch of the title back in 2011.

    Although some are just fixes to improve performance, the total 79 fixes include bugs and glitches that give players advantages over the game.

    One in particular is the Oghma Infinitum glitch that is possible to exploit after completing the Discerning the Transmudane quest, which got your character exploring the land to collect the blood of various different species across the world, and give to Septimus Signus.

    Upon completion, players would be rewarded a book that could be read and activated to unlock a path that would give +5 in three different skills and then vanish.

    As you may have imagined, the exploit allowed players to use the book over and over again to boost skills all of the way to level 100.

    Although the main consensus behind Bethesda's change was to keep the game playing as it should do, a lot of players are angry at Bethesda removing the exploit.

    What are your opinions on the removal of this bug? Do you think using glitches like this is okay in singleplayer games and that they should be left in the game? Check out our custom Xbox 360 controllers in our Controller Creator!

  • Two Characters Have Been Revealed for Battlefield 4 on Official Website

    Two Battlefield Characters

    Although we won't hear any solid details on DICE's next big first person shooter till GDC on March 26th, we still can keep our ears and eyes peeled over at the official website, where it seems EA and DICE have released two new pieces of artwork for the game.

    Of course we're all eager to see some new footage or screenshots on game environments, weapons or combat after their previous trailers, but the two new art pieces seem to reveal two new elements that will play a close role in the story.

    Two new characters are shown, one in each image. One image shows a woman who has also been named Hanna, however the other image shows a man who has not been named.

    Whether this man will be the protagonist or another character is currently unknown, but it's definitely interesting to see that DICE is still working hard on the single player gameplay, even though most eyes will be paying attention to the great multiplayer.

    Although there isn't any official confirmation on this, it seems as if the male is wearing a US outfit, which almost paves way for the Americans to be seen in Battlefield 4, whilst the woman doesn't seem to be wearing combat-worthy gear, although only her face is visible in the picture. Although it's hard to tell, the woman does seem to resemble an Asian origin, also backing up the previous rumors of the Chinese being involved in the game.

  • Mass Effect Player Choices Shown in Stats Infographic

    Mass Effect infographic

    A newly created infographic has been shown on Mass Effect's twitter, showing off the many decisions Mass Effect 3 players made in the game, and how many ME3 players took each decision.

    It's interesting to see that some of the stats shown reflect the choices that players have made in the game, and how different they are to our own choices. It's something that is rarely seen from an RPG game, and really shows the depths that some modern games, especially games with role playing elements, can contain.

    Surprisingly, only 64% had Wrex on their side on Mass Effect 3, showing more than a third of players being forced to hate Wrex and his race, and similarly, 64.5% of players were Paragon, and 35.5% were Renegade.

    On the evil side of things, 8% of players did not cure the genophage, and a tiny 3.8% of players shot Mordin.

    To me it seems Bioware has done an incredible job of creating a universe that is both believable and immersive. Of course decisions in the game seem to be partly dependent on the player's play styles, but a big part that seemed to make players choose one option over the other was not just their own thinking in-game, but in fact because of other character's choices within the game.

    Mass Effect 3 was the last game in the trilogy, however Bioware haven't finished with the franchise completely yet. That being said, this infographic kind of signals a farewell to any further development on ME3. There's no doubt that Mass Effect 3 has had its hiccups, but it is still an amazing game.

  • Kojima Talks about Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes

    Metal Gear 5 Will Be More open-world

    According to Kojimi, Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes will be revealed at GDC, giving us all more information on the game.

    Although GDC is now less than two weeks away, those impatient can still find out a bit of information on the new Metal Gear Solid from an interview with Kojima from PlayStation.

     

    The first thing that really interested me was that Kojima hopes for Ground Zeroes to be an immersive open world experience, and in fact, all his previous games he had hoped to create an open world environment, but due to the limit in hardware capabilities in the PlayStation 1, he has stuck to a leveled environment instead.

     

    It looks like Ground Zeroes may be different though, and Kojima has in his interview, "As far as stealth is concerned, you don't normally just start in a building. If you look at spy and action movies, how the hero gets to that point is a very important part of the story and part of the action. Do they get there by plane or by some sort of disguise? There are many ways you can approach that element of infiltration."

     

    "My ultimate goal is to give players even more freedom," he explains, "not only to figure out how they're going to get there but really have everything factor into it. So, do you want to get there by helicopter, or do you want to get there by plane, are you going to ride in a vehicle, or are you going to take a bike? Basically have all of these options available to the player."

     

    By opening multiple possible routes of action into the missions in Metal Gear Solid Ground Zeroes, you're immediately giving the player more freedom, which for me will make or break a stealth game.

     

    I'm really excited to see how 'open-world' the new Metal Gear Solid will be, but either way, I know it's going to be a great game.

     

    Currently, release details are not known, so it'll be interesting to see which consoles the game releases on.

  • God of War Ascension Cleared in 8 Hours, so Says Famitsu

    God of War Completed in 8 Hrs

    The release date for God of War Ascension is drawing closer and closer, and official game reporters' reviews of the game are coming in hot left, right and center.

    Most of the reviews seem very positive and are giving the game scores 8s, 9s, and in some instances, a big fat 10 out of 10.

    However, one thing that got my attention was a remark made in a review on the gaming website, Famitsu. The reviewer has said that the game can be cleared in just 8 hours. No details on the difficulty he was playing was given, so it's hard to tell what environment the reviewer played the game in.

    God of War's director, Todd Papy recently announced that the game will generally take 10 to 12 hours to finish, depending on your play style and how adept you are at completing puzzles.

    So either Todd is stretching the truth a little, the reviewer played it on easy mode, or really skilled gamers can complete the game in around 8 hours.

    Either way, a lot of reviewers have praised God of War ascension for its great multiplayer mode and impressive gameplay, and if the game is shorter than I'd hoped, at least the quality of the game is still top-notch.

  • What Will The Next Gen Bring to The Tables?

    Next Gen Console Predictions

    There's been a lot of talk about the two next generation consoles, the PS4 and the Xbox "Durango," but so far there hasn't really been any roundup or analyzing of what the new consoles will bring, and how games will be responded to by the gaming communities.

    Below is a list of what I believe to follow in the next two to three years, however these are just speculations, so it could be right, but it could be wrong.

    The PS4 Brings in More Hardcore Gamers

    We all already know the PS4 will be packing more raw power than the next Xbox, and because of this the Xbox may have trouble competing with the PlayStation 4, especially in 6-10 years' time. Developers may favor the PS4 over the Xbox because of the extra hardware capabilities, allowing them more freedom for their games. Because of this, Microsoft may focus the new Xbox towards a more casual market, which will eat into the sales of the spectacularly unsuccessful Wii U. Along with the Kinect 2.0, the Xbox has the ability to appeal to the casual gamers with ease.

    Battlefield will take the FPS Crown

    Everyone loves a good first-person shooter game, but if you've been in the loop recently, you may be starting to get the jist that a lot of gamers are getting a little tired of the constant slew of FPS games with little change. It's true that gamers are usually happy with playing with the same concepts for a long time, but unless the COD and Halo developers come up with good ways to make better use of the next gen hardware, they will fall behind. The Battlefield engine is perfect for the next generation. Destructible scenery and up to 64 player multiplayer should be a huge appeal to players when other levels on Battlefield's competition keep to rigid and static structures.

    Ouya and Steambox won't be considered competition

    The only reason you'd buy either of the above would be if you're an Android fan or a Valve fan, or you have enough money to "try it out." Both consoles will have the ability to change and renew hardware just like you can with a PC, but with the Android ecosystem not having enough games to appeal to mainstream gamers, and the Steambox to be an undefined, unknown brand to most everyday gamers, they'll both most likely be considered separate from the main console war, even if they did gain a considerable amount of success. In three to four years, when new hardware comes out at a decent price, both consoles may have a chance to kick ass though, thanks to the handy removable hardware.

    Both Consoles will Make Good Use of Mobile devices

    Smartphones are a huge part of everyday life, and because of this, businesses in the media are seeing the potential and are creating apps to allow users to access more of what they love via their smartphone. Social TV apps are available to give smartphone users more information on their TV shows, and Xbox has already created an app that lets users remotely control their console via a smart device. The next gen consoles will definitely make use of this capability, and it'll be much more convenient than the current offering. Gamers will want to use their smartphones for the functionality instead of silly reasons like trying to impress their friends.

    A lot more will come from the next-gen consoles, and at such an early stage it's hard to predict much else, however you can still stitch together a few possible outcomes from rumors, developer talks and other information spread through media channels.

    What do you think will happen in the first few years of the next-gen console's lifespan? What do you think about out newest modded controllers?

  • Battlefield 4 Confirmed For Next-Gen Release

    Battlefield 4 Confirmed

    EA is one of the biggest games publishers out there, and with so many different franchises under its belt, it only makes sense that whilst some become extremely successful, others crash and burn, and sometimes never see the light of day.

    A good example of this is the new Medal of Honor: Warfigher game. Despite its attempts to bring something slightly different into the FPS genre, the sales for the title were appalling compared to other popular FPS games, and it's a bullet that EA has had to take hard to the chest.

    EA is gathering its assets though, and killing off those that aren't beneficial to the producer's success ratings. For this reason we may never see another Medal of Honor game again, and especially not on the next-generation consoles. A new battlefield game is a definite yet however.

    "We've been investing and innovating on new technology for months. Console partners who have seen our early work agree, EA's next-gen software is nothing short of astonishing. At a GameStop company meeting earlier this week, we gave 500 store managers a sneak peak at Battlefield 4. The game received a huge ovation and thousands of fans reacted to a single enthusiastic Tweet by GameStop's CEO." EA president Frank Gibeau said.

    Whilst EA develop the next-gen Battlefield behind loosely closed doors, we'll have to patiently wait for an official public announcement, which according to Frank will be in around "90 days" after his discussion on the topic on January 31st.

  • Saints Row Partners With Heyday to Bring Limited 250 Pairs of Morningstar Super Shift Sneakers

    Saints Row Sneakers

    If you're a big fan of the Saints' Row series, there's now a perfect way to testify your love for the games. Heyday has just released an extremely limited pair of sneakers that are currently selling over at their website for $150.

    That"s a pretty hefty price, however paying up gets you a pretty cool pair of sneakers. Each pair has a slight unique twist to it, making sure what you're wearing on your feet remains to stay different, even if you do somehow happen to come across someone else with the shoe.

    It's unlikely that you will though, as there have only been 250 shoes produced, and there won't be any more.

    The price tag is understandable when you think the limited availability of the shoes, if this isn't a good enough reason on its own, then the shoes probably won't appeal to you at that price.

    Heyday has produced a couple of other designs for the Saints' Row series, however the red Morningstar sneakers seem to stand out the most.

    There hasn't been much news on a fourth Saints Row game, but recently all of the DLC for Saints' Row three was put into one easily fairly priced package. Be sure to check out our custom PS3 controllers in the Controller Creator for your next play through in Saints Row 3.

  • BLACK OPS 2 REVOLUTION CONTENT TO BE RELEASED JAN. 29

    New Black Ops 2 Content

    From fragging your friends in multiplayer to shooting at zombies in well, Zombies, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 seems to have a mode for all shooter fans.

     

    Sometimes though playing on the same maps with the same guns get old. That's where Revolution comes in.

     

    Revolution is a content pack that will release on Jan. 29 that will include new maps for multiplayer, Zombies, and a new gun.

     

     

    The newest map introduced into Zombies is Die Rise. This map will challenge players with a brand new minion and the map is located in a crumbling skyscraper. Giving an incredibly cramped feel.

     

    The newest and coolest new mode is Turned. This game mode will allow players to become zombies and kill their human brethren. The game will start with four people, who are all zombies, in Diner, have to find a syringe to turn back to human. That human then has to kill his zombie friends in order to get points. With every zombie kill the player gets a new weapon, just like in Gun Game.

     

    The Peacekeeper is a submachine gun that has been added into the multiplayer mix. It has the lightweight of a submachine gun while being able to have a slightly longer range but being incredibly unstable on fully automatic.

     

    The first map is a skate park titled Grind. This map offers a whole new set of challenges for players because of its awkward angles, bright surfaces and height differences.

     

    The next map is a snow map called Downhill. The developers made a map with a constantly rotating deadly ski lift, lodges and snow.

     

    The next map Mirage is the complete opposite of Downhill, set in a desert, this map consists of destroyed and ruined building obviously cause by the sand. Along this map are natural barriers of sand that create impromptu ladders while the buildings provide artificial cover.

     

    The last multiplayer map, Hydro, focuses on one key mechanic, there is a floodgate that randomly opens in the center of the map that will kill all players that are in the way. This creates a certain kind of tension and forces players to act.

     

    While you are waiting for the new DLC, don't forget to check out our modded Xbox 360 controllers.
