  • Street Fighter V Gets M Bison Reveal Trailer

    Street Fighter V M BisonM Bison has just been revealed by Capcom in a brand new reveal trailer for the character. The new trailer shows off a few other Street Fighter V characters before showing the new M Bison. Unsurprisingly, not much has changed to the character, but M Bison has had a nice re-texture to meet the higher quality graphics that Street Fighter V features.

    M Bison originally made his way into the Street Fighter franchise in Street Fighter 2 and as you can imagine, he has stuck around ever since.

    So far, we're still not very sure about the confirmed lineup for Street Fighter 5, but M Bison makes his way as the fourth confirmed character. Before M Bison, players were introduced officially to Ryu, Chun Li and Charlie.

    It's likely that we'll see a large roster of character we've already seen from Street Fighter titles in the past and if we're lucky we may see a new face or two as well. Unfortunately Capcom has chosen to reveal each character separately so it may be some time before we know the full character roster for Street Fighter 5.

    Street Fighter 5 does not yet have a definite release date but it has been planned to release some time next year. The upcoming Street Fighter game will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    In other news, Community Effort Orlando, a host for a fighting game tournament, has confirmed that a playable demo of Street Fighter 5 will be available at the tournament, which takes place between June 26 to June 28.

  • Patch 1.03 for The Witcher 3 Coming to Xbox One and PS4 soon

    patch 1.03 the witcher 3The latest 1.03 patch for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is currently undergoing the certification process for both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Once everything goes ahead as planned, the update will launch for both consoles.

    Whilst patch 1.04 has already hit the PC version of The Witcher 3, patch 1.03 is yet to hit either the PS4 or the Xbox One, and the same can be said for patch 1.04. This is due to the lengthy certification process that both Sony and Microsoft use to make sure everything goes ahead smoothly with new updates for games on either console.

    The PC version of patch 1.03 had over 600 changes made to it and it's likely that the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the patch will have a very similar number of changes. As you can imagine, many of the new changes will be various bug and glitch fixes, most of which may not affect gameplay at all for the majority of players.

    The biggest noticeable changes will improve overall stability when playing and when using the user interface. Cutscene performance has had a boost, and dialogue has been enhanced so that it is easier to read. Any other dialogue issues seem to have been fixed in patch 1.03 as well, including some missing translations in the user interface.

    Some major game breaking bugs should have been fixed in patch 1.03 as well. It's likely that patch 1.04 will be released alongside patch 1.03 once both updates have been certified by both Sony and Microsoft.

  • Bloodborne Patch 1.04 Now Live

    bloodborne patch 1.04A brand new patch for Bloodborne has been pushed out to the PlayStation 4 servers, and any players who connect online will have to download the patch before being able to play again. The update, named patch 1.04, brings a number of bug fixes, as well as some gameplay changes to Bloodborne.

    Patch 1.04 has been in development for quite some time now so the patch consists of quite a lot of different features. The entire patch clocks in at just under 300MB so whilst it won't take forever to install, it certainly is quite a beefy patch.

    Among some of the changes, players can now store up to 600 quicksilver bullets and blood vials in the storage in Hunter's Dream. Before patch 1.04 the limit was just 99. I think this feature is one of the most convenient for players, although more has been done to Bloodborne in patch 1.04.

    Some weapons and hunter tools have had buffs applied to them. Unfortunately From Software hasn't gone into too much detail about these buffs and what they apply to. Good news is that bosses in the Chalice Dungeons will now have a chance to drop a random number of blood gems. This gives players a bit more of an incentive to fight bosses in the Chalice Dungeons.

    Chalice dungeons will also now include Blood Stone Shards at Depth 1, Twin Blood Stone Shards at Depth 2, Twin Blood Stone Shards and Blood Stone Chunks at Depth 3, Blood Stone Chunks at Depth 4 and Blood Stone Chunks and Blood Rocks at Depth 5.

  • Upcoming Battlefield Hardline DLC Detailed

    battlefield hardline dlcThe first Battlefield Hardline DLC has now been announced by Visceral Games and some of the content we can expect to find in the expansion has been detailed.

    The first Battlefield Hardline DLC has been called Criminal Activity. As expected, Criminal Activity will come with four new maps. The expansion may include other content as well but at this point in time it has not be announced by Visceral Games or EA.

    Two of the new Battlefield Hardline maps will be set at night, whilst the other two will be set at day. All four maps will be set in Florida and California so we can expect to be fighting in an urban environment. Personally I think urban maps are the best settings for Hardline, so it's great to see we’ll be getting some more city action soon.

    Unfortunately no solid release date for Criminal Activity has yet been revealed. We do know that the next DLC pack for Battlefield Hardline, which is scheduled for release after Criminal Activity will be launching in the summer of 2015. This means that we should see Criminal Activity anywhere from now till the start of summer.

    No pricing has been given for the Criminal Activity DLC as of yet but it will come as part of the season pass, so if you're a Battlefield Premium user you'll be able to pick up Criminal Activity for free. Premium members will also gain access to the DLC expansion two weeks before standard players.

  • New Yoshimitsu Revealed for Tekken 7

    new yoshimitsu tekken 7Bandai Namco has finally announced that Yoshimitsu will be returning to the franchise in Tekken 7. With Yoshimitsu being one of my favorite fighting characters of all time, I was pretty excited to hear the news, but Bandai Namco has done something a little... strange with him.

    If you look back to previous Tekken games, you'll notice that Yoshimitsu never really has one appearance style. He'll always have drastically different costumes in each game. For those who don't keep an eye on the series it's easy to lose track of what Yoshimitsu actually looks like.

    The latest rendition of Yoshimitsu for Tekken 7 is beyond a shadow of a doubt the weirdest we've ever seen him before. Yoshimitsu now has a number of tentacles branching off of his face.

    Yes, that's right. We've been tricked. Yoshimitsu has been a space squid on legs all this time. Whilst you may not personally like the new Yoshimitsu looks it's important to note that there are bound to be plenty of costume options and clothing items to create a Yoshimitsu that's more in lines with the original.

    And whilst Yoshimitsu's appearance is so different, his fighting style is still the same and that's all that really matters. Right?

    So far we still don't know when Tekken 7 will be released internationally. The game is already widely available in Japan. We'll keep you updated about the launch details for Tekken 7 as more information comes in. Hopefully the western release dates will be announced soon.

  • Silent Hills has Been Cancelled

    It was almost expected at this point but unfortunately Konami has cancelled the development for Silent Hills and much to our dismay the game will no longer be released.

    The development studios behind Silent Hills have always dealt with internal problems it seems, and as a result the latest Silent Hills game will never see the light of day. In a brief statement, Konami said, "Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic 'Silent Hills' project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued,"

    What's interesting about this is that Konami still aren't putting down the Silent Hills IP for good. This may mean that we could see a Silent Hills game from Konami in the future. The likelihood of that happening is quite slim at this point though. The studio doesn't exactly look in great shape at this point, especially after cutting out Hideo Kojima from the equation.

    Norman Reedus from The Walking Dead was also set to star in Silent Hills as the main protagonist but since the game has now been cancelled his contract period with him has expired.

    Reedus posted on Twitter mentioning the cancellation of Silent Hills as well.

    "Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry everyone."

    Thankfully we are still going to be getting Metal Gear Solid V but if it were still a year or two away from development there's a good chance that it could have been cancelled as well.

  • Details about $40 Arkham Knight Season Pass Released

    arkham knight season passIf you've been keeping up with the latest news about Batman Arkham Knight you may already be aware that Warner Bros. will be releasing a $40 season pass to go along with the game.

    Understandably, a lot of fans of the series have been very frustrated with this price. Considering that most season passes are more often closer to $20, Warner Bros. has a lot of explaining to do.

    Fortunately the publisher did actually come out and reveal details behind why the season pass costs so much. Whilst they didn't reveal that much about the upcoming DLC for Batman Arkham Knight, they did do a basic rundown of what to expect from it.

    On a post on their Facebook page, Warner Bros. said "We've heard from our community that you want more information on what we'll be delivering in the Season Pass. While we aren't ready to unveil every aspect of the content we'll be developing, we would like to share more details now to give you a better sense of the scope of the Season Pass."

    Below, the details that Warner Bros. provided have been displayed.

    Batgirl: A Matter of Family - An all new prequel story expansion in an entirely new location where you play as Batgirl for the very first time in the Arkham series - check out the first render of Batgirl.

    The Season of Infamy - Play as Batman in all new story missions featuring legendary super-villains invading Gotham City, with new story arcs, missions and gameplay features.

    Gotham City Stories - Play as Batman's key allies in narrative missions extending their storylines, from both before and after the events in Batman: Arkham Knight.

    Legendary Batmobiles with Themed Tracks - Drive the most iconic Batmobiles from Batman's 75-year history, on custom-built race tracks, each themed to that Batmobile's specific era. Every Batmobile will be drivable across every race track.

    Crimefighter Challenge Maps - Engage in a series of new challenge maps utilizing the unique play styles of Batman and his allies.

    Character Skins - A variety of skins from across the eras for Batman, Robin, Nightwing and Catwoman.

    Do you think Warner Bros. should get away with putting the season pass for Arkham Knight up for $40?

  • Rare Planning to Reveal New Game at E3

    rare new game e3Everybody's interest for Rare died out a little bit when they were hired to make Kinect games for the Xbox 360, but as soon as they're given a bit more creative freedom again I'm sure the world will be looking their way.

    Let's hope that's the case with this year's E3 expo, because according to Rare's studio creative director, Simon Woodroffe, "E3 will tell the world what Gregg Mayles new project is about."

    As you can imagine, Simon couldn't go too far into details about the upcoming game and he made sure he didn't give too much away. Simon did however Tweet the following:

    "All I can give here is a quote from the man himself, 'This is more fun than anything we've ever done.'"

    Both Simon Woodroffe and Gregg Mayles have been responsible for putting their hearts into games like Donkey Kong Country and Viva Pinata and those were definitely some very fun games. If Rare is suggesting that their next game is going to be more fun than anything they've ever done, then that suggests that we could be in for a very nice surprise.

    There are so many different IP under Rare's control and their creative freedom always gives them the opportunity to create completely new experience as well. At this point I really couldn't even guess what to expect from Rare. All I can say is bring on E3 - This year's event is going to be insane.

  • Gears of War HD Remaster Could be Coming Soon

    gears of war hd remasterAlthough we may not be getting the Marcus Fenix Collection like we originally thought, a standard HD remaster of the first Gears of War game may actually be coming to Xbox One soon.

    A report was released late last week by Polygon that suggested Microsoft are working on a HD remaster of the original Gears of War game. Whilst the reports come from sources that aren't completely trustworthy, it would make sense that an HD remaster of GoW was in the works.

    So many rumors have been circulating about a Gears of War remaster and sometimes even officials that have worked on Gears of War have chipped in. It’s a shame that it may only be the first Gears of War title, but it would still be good to see Gears of War breathe new light on the Xbox One.

    According to the same sources, the Gears of War HD Remaster will include better lighting and improved texture quality, so it won't just be a port with enhanced resolution. However, it's possible the remaster will be displayed at 1080P, and the source suggests that the game will run at 60fps in multiplayer.

    The single player campaign may have lower frame rates, but seeing consistently over 30 frames should be very accomplishable.

    I haven't been able to play Gears of War for a long time so seeing a new HD remaster would be amazing for me. Let's just hope that the rumors are true and that we’ll be hearing more from more official sources very soon.

  • Black Ops 3 DLC Packs and Season Pass Details Leaked

    black ops 3 dlc packsWhilst a lot of information about Black Ops 3 has been released officially, there is still a lot that Treyarch are waiting to reveal. Luckily, some details have already leaked, including details about the different DLC packs that will be in Black Ops 3.

    Black Ops 3 will have 4 different DLC packs, all of which will be part of the season pass. As usual, the season pass can be purchased up front and will cost considerably less than it would to purchase each of the DLC packs separately as they are released.

    Unfortunately we do not have details about what content will be in the Black Ops 3 DLC packs, although it could be possible that not even Treyarch are 100% sure at this point. Considering the full game hasn't even gone gold yet, it would make sense that DLC plans are not completely confirmed at this point.

    If previous Call of Duty games are anything to go by, we can expect new maps from the DLC packs, along with new weapons and maybe some extra gun camos. There may be more customization options bundled into the DLC packs. Advanced Warfare also introduced a part-by-part zombies campaign that was split up into each DLC pack, and this may be the same for Black Ops 3.

    Hopefully the standard zombies mode will be available alongside the base of the game, otherwise I think a lot of Call of Duty players will be very unhappy about Black Ops 3.
