  • 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.

  • Only God of War 3 Will Get PS4 Remaster

    god of war 3 remaster 3

    Earlier in the month, Sony announced that they will be releasing a remastered version of God of War 3 for the PlayStation 4.

    The remastered version will have a 1080p resolution and will play on the PlayStation 4 at 60 frames per second. The game has been mentioned to cost $40, and it will release on July 14.

    Because of the sudden announcement, many players have wondered with Sony will plan to release other God of War games on the PlayStation 4. Thankfully, Sony Santa Monica have responded, giving us details on their future plans for the franchise.

    Sony Santa Monica's Aaron Kaufman explained a little about God of War remasters in a new blog post on the PlayStation blog. "Remasters often help us open the door to new players who perhaps did not play God of War 3 5 years ago, but who we can bring it to on the PlayStation 4."

    "People often forget, the more players we can bring into a franchise, the better for everyone. At Santa Monica Studio, we'd like as many PlayStation fans to experience our games as possible, from generation to generation."

    Despite their positivity towards remastered games, Kaufman ended with, "No plans for others in the franchise to bring over."

    Even if we don't see any more remastered versions of the God of War games on the PlayStation 4, it'd still be great to see God of War 3. Sony Santa Monica are also working on another game which we know nothing about, other than the fact that it will apparently be "freaking huge."

  • 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?

  • The GTA V Heist Update: Some Details

    gta v heist updateAs you probably are aware, heists have finally been released for GTA Online. In the latest update, heists were added, as well as a few other details.

    The most obvious and exciting part of the heists update is of course the heists. There are a total of five different heists in online, although the first one is a basic tutorial heist, explaining the basics for a team of two players.

    The next four heists are full scale missions that can be completed with you and three of your friends. There are different difficulty modes to make the heists more challenging, and various monetary rewards in the millions for completing all of the heists with the same team members.

    It's not just the heists in the new update though. Whilst Rockstar have not yet released any patch notes for it, the new update has a few other small things worth mentioning. Firstly, players can now choose to paint all of the rims in the chrome color, instead of using the single chrome plated rim.

    There is also a new motion blur setting that allows you to increase the blurring vision you'll see when moving your view. Personally I never saw the appeal of motion blur, but it is something many players have asked for since the launch of GTA V. Hopefully Rockstar will release a full patch notes post so that we can see exactly what changes have been made to the game.

  • Surprise, Surprise - Another Project Cars Delay

    project cars delayThere's something about driving games and constant delays and setbacks that has rippled through the gaming industry recently. Whilst in recent talks, SCEE CEO Jim Ryan mentioned that the PS Plus edition of Driveclub still has no planned release, Project Cars will also get another setback.

    Fortunately this time the delay for Project Cars will not be massive, but the game launch will be pushed back to April 2, 2015, instead of the previously planned March release.

    Before you get mad at Slightly Mad studios, it's important to understand the impact these delays have on development. If we look at a game like Assassin's' Creed Unity, which was released in an absolute poor state, we can accredit it to nothing more than developers being incredibly pushed for time by their publisher to get their games out on a set date.

    These delays for Project Cars will (hopefully) mean that the full retail product will be as close to what we were hoping. There shouldn't be nearly as many problems, bugs or game breaking issues that have plagued many other AAA games in recent months.

    The head of Project Mad, Ian Bell, has stated that "these extra days will allow us to provide the best game experience that our fans deserve. We assure you the wait will be worth it when the game does arrive early April."

    I'm sure by now most gamers will much rather choose the delayed release option to the buggy, unplayable on-time route that some developers have chosen, so I'm actually glad to see Project Cars get setback a few days.

  • Game of Thrones Episode 2 Gets a Teaser Trailer

    game of thrones episode 2Despite being released fairly recently, Telltale Games have already released a new trailer showing off the next upcoming episode for the Game of Thrones Telltale video game. The new episode will continue on from the first episode, and will be launching on PlayStation 3, 4 and Steam on February 3rd. Episode 2 will then be released on Xbox One and Xbox 360 on February 4th, before launching on iOS and Android on February 5th.

    Episode 2 has been named 'Lost Lords' and it will contain a lot of interesting story content that players of the original episode should enjoy.

    Here is the teaser information for Game of Thrones Episode 2 by Telltale Games

    "House Forrester is in disarray. Their liege lord and his heir are dead, and Ironrath is occupied by Whitehill soldiers. The survival of the family depends upon those who are left. Placed at King's Landing, the epicenter of intrigue, Mira Forrester must weigh her loyalty to Margaery Tyrell against the needs of her family, while choosing how to play the political games of Tyrion Lannister. One misstep could spell doom for Mira and her entire family.
    "To the far north, Gared Tuttle finds that the wall and its crows hold little love for a squire from the Wolfswood, but finds kinship in the bastard son of Ned Stark. Gared must prove worthy of becoming a ranger in order to carry out the mission given him; one that is vital to the future of those he serves. To the east, Asher Forrester, the exiled son, is called back to Westeros to aid his family, but how can one man help when the Boltons rule the north with an iron fist? Meanwhile, an unexpected source of hope returns to the Forresters, but Ironrath is no place for the weak."

  • Master Chief Collection Matchmaking Updates Incoming

    master chief collection matchmakinA new Master Chief Collection update has been planned to improve online matchmaking, but strangely 343 Industries will not make the update available to all players straight away.

    The update, which has since been delayed, was planned to fix many issues with the current in-game matchmaking system. Whilst 343 Industries did mention that they would release the update this month, new plans reveal that most players will not get to experience the update at all.

    Before full release, the matchmaking update will be pushed to a select few US beta participants, and these members will be able to help stress test the matchmaking before it is finally rolled out globally.

    To enter the beta process and be in with a chance of entering the matchmaking beta, you must reside in the US and join the Xbox One preview program. 343 Industries gave a small statement about the update.

    "In recent weeks, we have been conducting extensive internal testing of an upcoming content update for Halo: The Master Chief Collection."
    "Given the scale of the update, which includes changes to the matchmaking experience and party system, we are expanding testing to include select members of the Xbox One Preview program to ensure the official release is the best possible experience for all players.
    "The content update beta test is open to Xbox One owners within North America who have a copy of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and have opted-in for Xbox One beta testing as part of the Xbox One Preview program."
    "This is an opt-in opportunity and the content update will only be made available to selected participants within the Xbox One Preview program, based on the highest levels of engagement with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. On Friday, January 23, participants selected will be prompted to download the content update automatically when the title is started."

  • January Xbox Games with Gold Go Live

    january games with goldMajor Nelson has just posted up on his blog to announce the return of the Xbox Live Games with Gold deal for the first time this year, and admittedly Xbox players will be getting a pretty decent lineup this month.

    Like previous months, Xbox Live Gold subscribers will be given two free Xbox 360 games, and one free Xbox One game. As always, the Xbox One game will be available throughout the entirety of the month, whilst one of the Xbox 360 games will be available for half of the month before it is swapped out for the next one.

    On the Xbox One, Microsoft is giving away a free copy of Dark Dreams Don't Die, (or D4 for short) which usually sells for $14.99. Dark Dreams Don't Die is an episodic video game that follows a story, whilst incorporating interactive gameplay elements.

    For the first half of January, up until January 15th, Xbox Live Gold holders will be able to pick up MX vs ATX Alive, a fast paced off-road racing title which usually sells for $19.99. Starting on January 16th, Microsoft will be giving away the Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings for the remainder of the month.

    The Witcher 2 is definitely the highlight of this month's free Xbox Live Gold games, but the other titles in January's lineup are also pretty interesting.

    If either of these games aren't available in your region, you will find an alternative free game instead, although details on what games may be used as replacements have not been detailed.

  • Rumors Stir Around New Rare AAA Game

    It's always exciting to hear what Microsoft's best development studio, Rare is up to these days. They have made classics like Banjo Kazooie and Viva Pinata, and have also thrown out dozens of other playful games suitable for the whole family.

    Rare's most recent attempts have been within the world of Kinect, and they have released a various of sports and other active games compatible with the Kinect for the Xbox 360. Unfortunately, most gamers weren't really interested in Rare when all of their effort went into these kind of games, but in a new light, Microsoft has realized that Rare deserves to be doing something a bit more exciting with their time.

    Que dozens of rumors now spreading the internet because of a small job listing Rare has posted on their website following the development shift for the studio. On the job listing, it states that Rare are looking for an animator that has "high quality animation skills that include movement in bipedal animation, quadruped and facial animation."

    The two things here that have sparked a lot of talk are the words "bipedal and quadruped." Whilst animation for a two legged character is fairly normal, "quadruped" suggests that Rare may be planning to create a big bunch of four legged characters in their next upcoming AAA game.

    Honestly, it could be anything, but it sounds as if Rare are looking for animators to create animals. Does this mean we will see another Viva Pinata game? Or maybe a brand new Banjo Kazooie? It is hard to say, but it's possible it could be either of these or something entirely different.

  • Phil Spencer Teases Two Old Franchise Revivals

    phil spencer franchisesIn a recent interview, Phil Spencer revealed some information about Microsoft's plans to bring back two old franchises from the older generation Xbox consoles.

    In the interview, the following games were mentioned to Phil Spencer : Alan Wake, Banjo Kazooie, Blinx the Time Sweeper, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Fusion Frenzy, Halo Wars, High Heat Baseball, Kameo, Knights of The Old Republic, MechAssault, Otogi and Shenmue.

    Phil Spencer was then asked if any of the prior mentioned games were ever going to receive new installations for the Xbox One, and Phil responded with a very exciting answer -

    "There are a couple games on that list that we're doing some work on. I'll just say that. People should know that we listen to feedback, we have ideas, and there are franchises in the past we think would be great to come again."

    In my opinion this is great news - the Xbox has had many great exclusive titles over the last decade, and many of them have been left behind for newer franchises. Whilst it's great to hear a couple of franchises are coming back, it's also equally as frustrating that Phil Spencer did not reveal exactly what games will be returning.

    All of the games on the list were worth another chance, but there are some on there that deserve a new sequel more than others. Unfortunately we will have to play the waiting game until the two mystery games are announced by either Microsoft or their respective developers or publishers.
