  • New Halo 5 Pre-order Trailer Released

    Halo 5 pre-orderA brand new Halo 5: Guardians trailer has been released by Microsoft and GameStop showing off a set of armor that will be rewarded to players who pre-order Halo 5 from the video game retailer.

    The armor will be given to anybody who pre-orders Halo 5 from any GameStop store in the United States. There hasn't been any details on how long players will have to pre-order to be eligible for the bonus but it is clear that you'll definitely need to order Halo 5 before it is released.

    So far, no other retailers have given details on any pre-order bonuses, so GameStop is definitely looking like a good place to pick up Halo 5 so far. On top of the armor, players will be able to get a free poster for pre-ordering Halo 5 as well. Below, details about the bonus armor has been described.

    HUNTER-Class Armor: Sophisticated and lethal, HUNTER-class armor incorporates Watershed Division's latest warfighting technology.

    HUNTER-Class Helmet: Though still considered a prototype implementation, the HUNTER's sensor suite enhances situational and threat awareness.

    The HUNTER-class armor is the same armor that Agent Locke wears, and it seems like players who do not pre-order will not be able to pick up the same armor. Even though the armor is most likely just cosmetic, I personally think it seems a bit unfair that some players won't be able to dress as Agent Locke in Halo 5, especially considering he will be playing a very important role in the story of Halo 5: Guardians.

  • Goat Simulator is Now On Xbox One

    goat simulator xbox oneHave you got some change to spare? If you do, you might want to throw it at Coffee Stain Studio's genius creation/abomination Goat Simulator. The hilarious bug filled game has now made it's way to the Xbox One and Xbox 360.

    Whilst Coffee Stain Studios weren't in charge of the port, more than capable Double Eleven has managed to bring it to the Xbox platform without changing anything that broke away from that special Goat Simulation experience the PC version offered.

    As you can imagine, Goat Simulator can only be picked up from the Xbox Store as a digital download. The game currently costs $9.99 for Xbox One and the Xbox 360. The objective of Goat Simulator is to take control of a goat and use his strangely sticky tongue to attach to objects and destroy the world around him.

    The game is perhaps the most random non-game like monstrosity you'll ever lay your eyes on, and plenty of physics bugs have been left in the game to make it even more of a laugh to play through.

    If you aren't so sure you'll be interested in Goat Simulator don't worry about picking it up just yet, the game has already seen plenty of sales on other platforms so I wouldn't be surprised if Double Eleven's port will be featured in some kind of sale in the future. Goat Simulator is better considered as a fun arcade that can be picked up for a fun afternoon indoors.

  • Release Date for Ultra Street Fighter IV Revealed

    ultra street fighter iv ps4You may want to go and check out the PlayStation blog because a new post has been released on there that reveals details about the release date of Ultra Street Fighter IV. We've already seen an Japan arcade release of Tekken 7 and Mortal Kombat X is now available worldwide, so Street Fighter fans are understandably getting hyped up for Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    According to the PlayStation blog, Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available in America and Europe on May 26 this year. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 for $24.99 and it will include all of the DLC that has been released in the past.

    If you have ever played Street Fighter IV on the PlayStation 3 and noticed that there was a slight input lag, you'll be happy to know that the PS4 release of Ultra Street Fighter IV will be free from the input lag problems seen in previous versions.

    Whilst we're not entirely sure how far the developer has gone to improve Ultra Street Fighter IV we do know that the resolution and frame rate has been improved. From what we can tell from the latest screenshots of the game, the character models and textures do seem to be a lot higher quality this time round.

    Will you be picking up the new PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV when it lands in a month's time on May 26?

  • New Bloodborne 1.02 Patch Released

    new bloodborne patchA new patch for Bloodborne has been released and it fixes a number of issues and exploits found in the game. One of the biggest changes includes a fix to a well known duplication glitch that was spreading through the internet.

    The item duplication glitch allowed players to practically duplicate any item in their inventory, and many players started to use it to get infinite consumables and increase their in game wealth. Whilst this duplication method has been fixed it would not surprise me if other players manage to find another dupe method before From Software have the chance to fix it.

    Another very important fix in the 1.02 patch changes the way a certain mission plays out, which previously caused some issues, stopping players from progressing through the game. If you ever had trouble with the Lunarium Key in Bloodborne you will be happy to hear that all issues relating to the key have now been fixed.

    If your game was previously unable to make the key spawn, you will now be able to head into game and collect the key to continue with the game. Without the Lunarium Key, players cannot fight the boss within that area, and that will stop the player from being able to complete many other areas in the game following on from the boss fight.

    Whether or not you're frustrated with the item duplication fix, I think it's great to see the developers of Bloodborne working quickly on major game issues and bugs. Bloodborne has been incredibly successful since it's release, and millions of players have already purchased the game.

  • Crazy Advanced Warfare Stats Revealed

    Sledgehammer Games has recently released a large infographic that contains a variety of information relating to player's accumalative stats in Advanced Warfare since the game has been released. In the infographic, details about player kills, weapon usage and grenade usage has been displayed. Other details give information about the exo zombie survival mode, whilst some stats share details on the various exo suit abilities.

    2,591,920,137, or roughly 2.5 billion exo zombies have been killed since the release of Advanced Warfare, and 223 million zombie waves have been cleared by players.

    Players have collected 1,397,836,776 supply drops, and over 2 billion items have been collected, with roughly 300 million of those being elite items.

    One of my favorite stats on the new info-graphic includes details about how far players have jumped with the new boost jumps in Advanced Warfare. Over 105 trillion jumps have been made by players online. Sledgehammer Games has stated that this is enough distance to cover the circumference of the earth 14 thousand times. Now that is a lot of boost jumping.

    Unfortunately the info-graphic did not give stats on player average kill ratios or any other information about player performance or weapon preference. The info-graphic did state that 24% of weapons used were assault rifles, 19% were SMGs, 16% were heavy weapons and just 13% were snipers.

    If you could learn any stats about Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, what kind of stats would you be interested to learn about? I personally think it would be great to see details about player performance and general weapon usage, instead of just weapon class usage.

  • Three New Tekken 7 Characters Announced

    new tekken 7 charactersAs part of a celebration on the 20th anniversary stream on Nico Nico, three more characters have been confirmed for Tekken 7, and they will be making their way into the game at various points throughout 2015.

    Two of the three characters are returning favorites, whilst one is a completely brand new character named Josie Rizal. Not much information has been shared about Josie, although it has been confirmed that her nationality is filipino. The release date for Josie Rizal has not yet been set, and Bandai Namco have simply stated that she will be added to the game "soon."

    For those that are aware of Filipino history, you'll know that the name Josie Rizal is way too similar to Jose Rizal for it to be a coincidence. Jose Rizal is considered a national hero in the Philippines and lived in the 1800s.

    The other two characters are two favorites that we all expected to see in Tekken 7 a lot sooner. The first is Jin Kazama, and the second is Devil Jin. Whilst Josie does not yet have a release date, Bandai Namco did announce on the live stream that standard Jin will be added to the game on March 31 as the first new character.

    One week later on April 7, Devil Jin will also be added to Tekken 7.

    I think it's great to see Jin being finally added to Tekken 7, and it's also quite interesting to see Bandai Namco adding a brand new character to the game as well.

  • Rainbow Six Siege Beta Registration Available

    rainbow six siege betaIf you're interested in trying out the new Rainbow Six game before it is released, you may want to go and head over to the Ubisoft website, as registration for the upcoming beta has officially opened.

    The beta will be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC, unlike the previous alpha test that was exclusively for PC players. Whilst there are no details on how many players will get the chance to play the Rainbow Six Siege beta, there is certainly a limited number of spaces available, and players can increase their chances by answering certain questions on the registration page.

    The registration page asks players about their experience with games in the past, as well as details about their rig if they are playing on PC, and general questions you'd expect to see from a closed beta registration.

    Whilst this is an option for players to try Rainbow Six Siege without buying the game, players can also pre-order to get 100% guaranteed access into the beta. So far, no details have been given on when the beta test will happen, how long it will last for, and whether it will be only beta or if it will be the first in a series of betas.

    Just like the beta launch date, the actual release of Rainbow Six Siege is not yet set in stone, but it's likely that the upcoming alpha and beta tests will help Ubisoft to determine how long they'll need to finish up the game ready for release.

  • New Details on The Witcher 3 Revealed

    details on the witcher 3Thanks to a preview feature from a German magazine and a bunch of translators over at the NeoGaf forums, we now have a bunch more details about the Wither 3 in anticipation for it's launch.

    There is so much information to go through, so we'll list some of the biggest reveals from the magazine. Firstly, the feature suggests that there will be two large cities, Novigrad and Oxenfurt, both of which will be bustling with life.

    No Man's Land will feature 25 smaller towns and cities, and some of these will be around the same size of Flotsam from The Witcher 2.

    Interestingly, the best items in The Witcher 3 must be crafted, and all equipped items will appear on Geralt in-game. Thankfully, they have gotten rid of the fist fighting quick time events, and it's been replaced with a fighting style similar to standard weapon fighting.

    One quirky feature is that Geralt's beard will grow over time, and you can go to a barber to cut it's length. The HUD in The Witcher 3 will also have a lot of customization potential, and you can remove certain UI elements, and even activate audio hints.

    The German magazine came across very few bugs, crashes or freezes, which is exactly what we want to hear.

    The Witcher 3 will be released on May 19 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. The game has been delayed a number of times now, so it's great to finally see the release date nearing closer.

  • Gears of War Collection Rumors hit the Internet

    gears of war collectionEver since the launch of the Xbox One, there have been constant rumors about the possibility of a Gears of War return, but we have heard any credible information about any new Gears of War content just yet.

    Recently, cover based shooter, The Order: 1866 released exclusively to the PlayStation 4, and this just sparked the internet with even more Gears of War rumors. It's very likely that something Gears of War related is going to come to the Xbox One, but so far we have no idea what it could be.

    Recently, two images have hit the internet that suggest that we may even see a Gears of War collection for the Xbox One. Expected to include Gears of War 1, 2 and 3, (and maybe Judgement if anybody is really that interested.) the collection has been suggested to release next year by renowned Xbox leakster Shinobi602.

    It doesn't stop there though - a message sent to Phil Spencer makes it seem as if the Collection could definitely be happening. The message asked if we were ever going to see a Gears of War collection, to which Phil Spencer responded "Haha, I can't announce that. But stay tuned." Hopefully we'll hear something about what Phil Spencer means by this comment soon.

    Would you be happy to see a Gears of War collection for the Xbox One that contained all of the previous games in the franchise, or would you rather see a completely new game in the franchise?

  • Titanfall 2 Confirmed for Xbox One and PS4

    titanfall 2 confirmedAfter a whole year of rumors, Respawn Entertainment have finally spoken about the possibility of Titanfall 2, and everything has now been set in stone.

    Just a few days after the anniversary of Titanfall, Respawn CEO Vince Zampella revealed some details about Titanfall 2 in a new interview with IGN.

    Whilst EA has mentioned that a new Titanfall was in the works, Respawn Entertainment, the studio that actually develops the game, has not said anything about the title till now. In the IGN interview, Zampella mentioned that they are "working on a sequel."

    "No official name yet, but we're working on that. That's the main focus but we're starting up a second team and doing some smaller stuff too," Zampella said. "Small, exploratory, taking it slow."

    Perhaps the most important thing Zampella mentioned was that the new Titanfall game will "be multiplatform." Whilst Zampella didn't specifically say it, it's pretty clear that Zampella means that the game will be releasing for both the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. It's likely that Titanfall 2 will also be available on the PC through Origin, like the original title.

    Zampella was also asked about the multiplayer-only approach that Respawn Entertainment took with Titanfall. He mentioned that he would not have done it differently, and in the future Respawn may think about taking a page from Evolve's books by providing free maps instead of DLC maps to players to avoid splitting the player base.
