  • Tekken 7 Extended Trailer Shown at Comic-Con

    Tekken 7 extended trailerAfter the recent pre-announcement slip-up for Tekken 7 earlier in the month, it looks like Bandai Namco have taken to the stage at this year's Comic-Con to do themselves justice. The developers of the latest Tekken games have just released a brand new extended trailer to officially announce Tekken, without any leaks getting in the way this time.

    The new Tekken 7 trailer is just over 3 minutes in length, and depicts part of the story the franchise the game has already laid out in previous games. Whilst it may be an exciting watch for many fans of the franchise, the latest extended Tekken 7 trailer didn't really do enough to draw many people in, and it will definitely have a tough time going up against Mortal Kombat X, a game which has recently had a reveal trailer that depicts some very epic fight scenes.

    Whilst we haven't seen any actual gameplay of Tekken 7 yet, we can expect the game to look absolutely incredible, thanks to the new Unreal Engine 4, which series game director and producer Katsuhiro Harada announced the game to be developed on.

    It will definitely be a fierce battle between Mortal Kombat X and Tekken 7, and I personally cannot wait to see some actual live gameplay of both games in the near future.

    Tekken 7 has not yet got a set release date, however it is likely that the game will be released within the next year. Tekken 7 will definitely make it to the PS4 and Xbox One, but it could possible be released for the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 as well.

  • New GTA 5 Jobs Take Inspiration From Previous Games

    gta 5 franchise jobsDespite releasing new Rockstar verified jobs just last week, Rockstar have just approved a bunch of new jobs that focus on content paying homage to previous games in the Grand Theft Auto franchise.

    If you're a big fan of Grand Theft Auto, and have played through the various other games in the franchise released in the past by Rockstar, you may be interested to try out the new Rockstar verified jobs on GTA 5.

    In total, there are nine new missions, each paying homage to a different game in the GTA franchise, including references to Chinatown Wars, GTA 3, GTA 4, Vice City and San Andreas. The new Rockstar verified jobs can be read below.

    TA III
    Team Deathmatch: The Exchange by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)
    Here we see the explosive final mission of GTAIII reimagined as a Deathmatch alongside the Land Act Dam. Extra points awarded for authenticity here as JIIThe_JokerIIK has carefully placed props to match Claude's final showdown with the Colombian Cartel. We recommend seizing control of the Buzzard quickly to gain the edge if you're playing this with one with your Crew.

    Team Deathmatch: Bomb da Base by DuPz0r (PS3)
    This Deathmatch - based on Act II of Bomb da Base in GTAIII, where Claude and 8-Ball blow up the Les Cargo ship - offers its own fair share of bang for the buck on a shipping vessel docked just off the Port of South Los Santos terminal. Be sure to check out the empty containers raised from the ground for some juicy firepower, though beware - someone else might have gotten there first...

    GTA Vice City
    Team Deathmatch: Four Iron by auclair-O_o (PS3)
    Tommy Vercetti had to check his firearms at the door at Leaf Links in Vice City. Luckily, they seem to be far more liberal on weapon checks at the Los Santos Golf Club. In this Deathmatch remake of the Four Iron mission in VC, you'll find a few handguns scattered around the greens and fairways. Of course there are plenty of golf clubs lying around in case you feel like working on your short game.

    GTA: San Andreas
    Race: Farewell, My Love... by iLewisGTA (Xbox 360)
    After Carl Johnson spurned the dangerous affections of Catalina in San Andreas, she pit her new boyfriend (a certain strong, silent type) against CJ in a race around Red County. In his GTA Online remake, iLewisGTA has selected Coupes as the default vehicle for authenticity and really nailed the tight, slippery corners of the original circuit around The Panopticon in Red County. A major Rockstar fan, Lewis had made a bunch of Throwback Jobs that you can check out on his Social Club profile.

    Race: Valet Parking by DrHoctor (Xbox 360)
    "Being a valet at the Richman Hotel has its perks, like all the nice cars that pull in. -Borrow- one of them and take it for a test drive" says DrHocter's description to this Lap Race, based on the valet parking side mission from San Andreas. Starting and ending at the Richman Hotel, and weaving through the tight Morningwood streets, there's a lot more to it than parking for sure. Watch out for approaching opponents along the looped section and try to get the customers' cars back without a scratch.

    Race: High Stakes, Low Rider by thewolfking90 (PS3)
    Top marks for authenticity go to thewolfking90 for this Race, which nicely captures the feel of its inspiration - the High Stakes, Low Rider mission in San Andreas. Set to Muscle Cars and finishing up at Del Perro Pier, you can almost feel Cesar Vialpando bearing down on your rear bumper. The choice to set West Coast Classics as the default radio station is a lovely nod to the classic wessyde vibe as well.

    GTA IV
    Capture: GTA: Lost Angels by RikkiVercetti (Xbox 360)
    Inspired by the conflict between The Lost and the Angels of Death in The Lost and Damned, this Capture Job from prolific GTA Online Creator RikkiVercetti pits two teams in a proxy war for these two notorious motorcycle clubs, each tasked with stealing the signature rides from the other group. A broad stretch of rolling hills between West Vinewood and Stab City ensure that in this large capacity Capture you'll need to spread out and leave skilled defenders to protect your precious hogs from getting stolen. Sawed-off Shotguns and Molotovs as the default weapons setting also force you to pick your shots and cover choices wisely when nearing the enemy base.

    GTA: Chinatown Wars
    Capture: Chinatown Wars by Choc_late (Xbox 360)
    This is an intimate, close quarters Capture amidst the urban neon and colorful lanterns of West Vinewood's Mission Row. Expect a heavy exchange of gun fire as two teams battle it out for domination of the central alleyway where the Capture Objects are to be found. The situation is further intensified by the accurate resident gang members who carry equal contempt for both teams as well as high-grade firearms. Respawning in Canis Mesas means either bag is never far away, so stake your claim on cover to protect your teammates during a desperate grab.

    Team Deathmatch: Chinatown Wars by WinR4R (PS3)
    Attrition across the rooftops or balls-out carnage in Sinners Passage - this Deathmatch features well thought out weapon placement ensuring that each match outcome here in Textile City has the potential to play out differently.

    Start up you're new GTA V job with a brand new custom Evil Controller. Our controllers are the best in the business and offer the widest selection of customization. Don't just game with the normal controller check out what it's like to use an Evil Controller.

  • Telltale Games' The Walking Dead Season 3 In The Works

    walking dead season 3Telltale Games have managed to be incredibly successful with their story-driven The Walking Dead game series, and it looks like it's been so successful that the development team are already working on a third season for the project.

    Revealed this week via the developer's official Twitter page, Telltale Games announced that there was going to be a third season to their The Walking Dead video game series, and a few details about their development were shared at Comic-Con in San Diego.

    Unfortunately, the developers really didn't go into much detail other than confirming that they are planning to work on a third season for the Walking Dead, however the release date, and the date they start actively developing the game aren't known.

    Telltale Games are currently already piled in with work from The Wolf Among Us, The fifth episode of The Walking Dead in Season 2, and Tales of The Borderlands, so it may be a while before we finally see progress on the third The Walking Dead Telltale Games season.

    Interestingly, Telltale Games are also working on an adventure story game based on HBO's Game of Thrones, and after the undoubted success of that, it's very likely they'll have many other movie, TV and game creators asking to partner up with them on future projects.

    What Telltale Games do is quite unique, and I'm pretty excited to see various other projects being worked on from the same development team, such as Tales from the Borderlands, so we'll definitely have enough content to enjoy whilst waiting for The Walking Dead season 3.

  • PS4 Slim Planned; Release Probably Far Off

    PS4 slimBack when the PlayStation 3 was first released, many believed that Sony were never going to catch up to the amount of units the Xbox 360 was selling. However, with the help of a new slimline variant of the PS3 with larger storage space and a cheaper price point, Sony managed to claw it's way to a position that put it neck and neck with Microsoft's Xbox 360.

    This time round, Sony have gained the clear sales advantage over Microsoft and the Xbox One, but just like before, anything could happen to give the losing console the chance to wing it into first place.

    If the Xbox One manages to get a price drop and a selection of strong console exclusives, sales for the console could easily start to catch up with that of the PlayStation 4, and if that happens, Sony are reportedly prepared to drop out a new PlayStation 4 slim variant, which like the PS3 slim, will most likely come with a slim line frame, a cheaper price point and a larger hard drive.

    It's likely a 'slim' version of the PlayStation 4 will release at some stage, but it also makes sense that a release will only kick in when sales start to slow down, and Xbox One sales start to pick up.

    Right now, the PlayStation 4 is drastically beating the Xbox One in terms of units sold, and this huge difference in sales numbers isn't likely to change any time soon. Perhaps we'll see a PS4 slim in a few years.

  • Cliffy B Goes Back Into Video Game Development

    Cliffy B New GameA little while back Cliff Bleszinski announced plans to retire from video game development for good, but it seems he just couldn't keep away from the video game industry as he's already back at it with plans to make more video games again.

    Despite his supposed video game retirement, it's been clear for a while that Cliffy B has been working on some kind of video game project, and it looks like he plans to reveal it to the world pretty soon.

    On Bleszinski's twitter, he wrote, "I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again. Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days!"

    Whilst his previous work has been alongside AAA studios responsible for franchises like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, it sounds likely that Cliffy B's next project will be something completely different.

    Cliff Bleszinski has already revealed a few different concept art images for a game that he has codenamed Silverstreak, so perhaps we'll hear more about this title within the next 7 days like Cliff suggested on his Twitter account.

    In or out of retirement, it's clear Cliffy B will not have any input on the next Gears of War title, which is largely where he made a name for himself. Do you think Bleszinski's next game make much of a splash? We'll have to see exactly what Cliffy B has up his sleeve before we give an answer on that one.

  • TLOU Remastered PS4 Bundle Revealed

    ps4 tlou bundleDespite The Last of Us Remastered being a port of a PlayStation 3 title, it seems Sony really want to push for as many sales as possible for the upcoming HD PlayStation exclusive, and their next move to suggest this comes in the form of a brand new PlayStation 4 bundle.

    The new PlayStation 4 bundle comes with a console, a DualShock 4 controller, and a copy of The Last of Us Remastered. The bundle was first leaked on Amazon a few days ago, but it has since been made official by Sony.

    The brand new bundle has been set for a $429.99 price tag, which should be in-line with other similar PlayStation 4 bundles currently available. So far no details have been given on a North American or UK price tag or release, but it's likely this bundle will be made available in most regions.

    The new bundle can already be pre-ordered now. The release date for the bundle is quite unclear, although some retailers have suggested an August 1st, 2014 date, which would make sense considering the Last of Us Remastered will be released on July 29th.

    So far, The Last of Us has proven to be an incredible game, but many gamers have been quite disappointed at the huge price tag of the remastered version and lack of upgrade discount, which seems to have been neglected, despite Naughty Dog previously discussing the possibility of such a thing. Will you be getting The Last of Us Remastered or do you see it as an unnecessary purchase?

  • Cheaper GoTY First Party Xbox One Titles Are Coming

    xbox one goty editionI've personally never really owned any Game of the Year edition games, but they are typically released at a cheaper price to their original counterparts, and are a great alternative for anybody looking to buy new games at a discounted price. Microsoft have released Xbox 360 GoTY titles for years, but it's now been revealed that they plan to release a bunch of Game of The Year first party games for the Xbox One this year too, to help bulk up the current game portfolio.

    It has been confirmed that the new Game of the Year edition titles will come at a cheaper price than the original versions, however the price has not yet been revealed. Interestingly, gamers may be able to pick up a new Xbox One SKU that bundles together a bunch of different GoTY titles at a reduced price.

    Microsoft are still waiting to see how many third party publishers are interested in re-releasing their Xbox One games into the Game of the Year title list, but it's possible games like Assassin's Creed Black Flag, Call of Duty: Ghosts and other titles may make it into the GoTY catalogue, along with Ryse: Son of Rome, Dead Rising 3 and Forza Motorsport 5.

    All of these new GoTY edition games should be released 'as soon as possible,' however a September release date seems the most likely. We'll probably hear more about these titles, along with information about new Xbox One bundles in the next few months.

  • PS4 GTA V will Gain Some Kind of Console Exclusive

    GTA V PS4 exclusiveIt seems a lot of developers are currently very happy to team up with Sony to offer various PlayStation 4 exclusives, including Bungie, the creators of Destiny, and now it even looks like Rockstar may be doing the same.

    Whilst the details are unclear, PlayStation's North American marketing vice president, John Koller. revealed to Kotaku that there would be some sort of PlayStation 4 exclusive GTA V content or 'perk' that no other platform would receive. When asked by Kotaku about PS4 exclusive content, Koller replied with "I don't think we announced anything publicly on that, but there will be." This is a pretty detail-void response, but it does tell us that something will be different about the PS4 GTA V experience.

    As far as Koller is concerned, Grand Theft Auto has also been a PlayStation based franchise, and Sony's relationship with Rockstar has always been strong. Whether or not we'll see some kind of content in-game exclusive to the PlayStation 4 is unclear at this point, but Koller is certainly suggesting that the PS4 version of GTA V will have something completely exclusive.

    Perhaps the only difference will be to do with graphical performance, or maybe PS4 players will receive an extra car for online play. Right now, we'll just have to wait it out till we hear more about the topic. Luckily, it shouldn't be too long before we hear more about Rockstar's 'exclusive' PS4 content, as Grand Theft Auto V is set for release this fall for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    We'll keep you updated as more information comes in about this.

  • Sony and Bungie Relationship Will Reward Destiny Players with PS Exclusives

    sony destiny exclusivesDespite Destiny being prepared for an Xbox launch alongside the PlayStation version, Bungie and Sony have been getting along quite nicely, and PlayStation owners will be able to benefit from Bungie and Sony's new found relationship.

    According to a few product listings for Destiny on various retailer websites, including Amazon, the PlayStation 3 and 4 versions of Destiny will receive content that could remain exclusive to Sony until Fall 2015, a whole year after the game's release date.

    Destiny on the PlayStation will receive a bunch of exclusive gear, including a Monte Carlo assault rifle, a bunch of different ships, the Hawkmoon hand cannon, and a set of apparel for each of the three classes in the game.

    The PS4 and PS3 versions of Destiny will also get an exclusive co-op mission and multiplayer competitive map. All of this content will apparently be made available as a DLC pack, and according to Amazon, it will remain exclusive to Destiny till Fall 2015.

    Destiny has just slipped out of Alpha, and Bungie plan to open up Beta on July 17th for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. A few months after the beta, Destiny will be made available worldwide on September 9th for PS3, PS4, the Xbox One and the Xbox 360.

    Bungie plan to release an Xbox beta at some stage between July 17th and September 9th, however an official date for this beta has not yet been revealed, but we'll probably hear more about it soon.

  • Titanfall Will Be Getting New Gameplay Modes for Free

    titanfall june updateWhen Respawn Entertainment announced that they plan to add regular new content for Titanfall free of charge over the next year, they certainly weren't lying. At E3, players got a glimpse of what Respawn has plans for in the future, which included a variety of new game modes which are planned to be released later this month.

    The new June update will add a few new game modes, as well as a bunch of new burn cards, and even some new customization options.

    There will be a range of new burn cards for use in titan gameplay now, instead of just on foot, and players will be able to customize their titans by picking between three different titan voices, as well as unlocking and applying in-game decals.

    As for the new game modes, the first game has been named Marked for Death - this game will be a 6V6 VIP style experience that puts one player on each team as the 'marked man.' Only killing the marked man will get game points, and after the marked man is dead, a new player on the team will be randomly selected to take their place.

    The second new mode is a variation of the Last Titan Standing game mode. The new mode will be called Wingman LTS, and it will pit 2 player-controlled titans against each other, instead of six.

    Hopefully June's update will help to ring in players who have so far abandoned the title after losing interest in the limited amount of content available.
