  • 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.

  • Bloodborne has Now Gone Gold

    bloodborne goldAt long last, From Software's new PlayStation 4 exclusive Bloodborne has gone gold, which means the development team have done everything they need to do to ship the product to disc in preparation for the launch of the game.

    I'm personally quite excited to see Bloodborne - from what we've seen so far, the game looks like a great example of what From Software are known best for. Their Dark Souls and Demon Souls games have always been great, but Bloodborne takes a slightly different path by offering a more forgiving gameplay experience for players.

    When I say more forgiving, I do mean that you're not going to die as often, but that doesn't mean we can't expect Bloodborne to be a nice challenge. In fact, I think it will be a very challenging game, but I'm hoping the frustration that was found by many players whilst playing Dark Souls 1 and 2 won't be present in Bloodborne.

    Whilst Bloodborne has already seen a delay, going gold means we will now not see any more delays, and the previously announced release dates of March 24 and March 27 are now set in stone.

    The March 24 release is for North America, whilst the March 27 release is for the UK. Other region release dates are around these two dates. The full release schedule can be seen below.

    NA - March 24, 2015
    EU - March 25, 2015
    Japan - March 26, 2015
    UK - March 27, 2015

  • Mortal Kombat X Gets New Character Reveals

    mortal kombat xThe Mortal Kombat franchise has always put a lot of thought and development into the stories of each of the characters, so when announcing brand new characters, you can bet NetherRealm Studios will make a big deal out of it.

    Recently, a new trailer was released, and alongside delving into part of the story players will experience in Mortal Kombat X, three new characters were announced for the game.

    The new Mortal Kombat game will take 25 years after the last game, developed in 2011, and it will see Mileena take hold of a powerful talisman that grants her 'unimaginable power.'

    The three new characters that were seen in the story trailer included Jacqueline Briggs, the daughter of Jax. The second character was Takashi Takeda, who is the son of Blind Kenshi.

    Finally, the third character is Kung Jin, a character whom is the descendant of Kung Lao.

    In total, 16 different characters have been confirmed for Mortal Kombat X. All 16 characters have been listed below.

    Cassie Cage
    D'Vorah
    ErmacFerra/Torr
    Goro
    Kano
    Kitana
    Kotal Kahn
    Kung Lao
    Quan Chi
    Raiden
    Reptile
    Scorpion
    Sub-Zero
    Jacqueline Briggs
    Takashi Takeda
    Kung Jin

    Will NetherRealm announce any more characters before the launch of the game? It is possible, but this could also be the full character roster for Mortal Kombat X. Hopefully we will see another character reveal or two before the game is released next month for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, on April 14th.

  • Games with Gold Deals Announced for March

    games with gold marchXbox has just announced their new lineup of free games for Xbox Live Gold members, and it's looking like a pretty good month. All three of the games available in March will be absolute amazing games, and there's no doubt that players will be happy about these titles.

    Firstly, the Xbox One game that will be featured this month for free is Rayman Legends. This is a game that features the one and only Rayman in a new platformer experience. Rayman Legends is definitely one of the best platformers available in recent years, and I expect a lot of players will be happy to pick it up if they haven't yet.

    As for the Xbox 360, two games have been lined up for March, and as per usual, one game will be available for the first half of the month, before being removed and replaced with another game on the second half of March.

    Starting on March 1st, Tomb Raider, the latest reboot of the action adventure series will be put up for free. Considering the new Xbox One exclusivity deal with the next upcoming Tomb Raider game, it makes sense that Microsoft have managed to put up Tomb Raider for free.

    Xbox players are definitely missing out on the action that Nathan Drake delivers on PS4, so this could be a great free alternative this month.

    Finally, on March 16th, Tomb Raider will be replaced with Bioshock Infinite, the much more colorful, but equally as haunting sister of the first two Bioshock games. Bioshock Infinite is an absolute gem, so it's definitely worth downloading when you can.

  • Mass Effect 4 Will Feature "Emotionally Believable Characters"

    mass effect 4Let's be honest, any open world game by Bioware is always going to look nice when compared to other titles released around the same time. Mass Effect 4 should be no different, and thanks to a new job listing on Bioware's website, we can get a better idea about what kind of direction Bioware will want artists to go in the upcoming Mass Effect.

    In a latest job listing, Bioware are looking for a member to join their team that can specifically create "emotionally believable characters that allow game players to interact with the game, whether photorealistic or stylized, in a realistic and believable fashion."

    The depth of story involved in the Mass Effect franchise has always been impressive, and being able to capture and create characters that really show believable emotion will be a great way to improve the story depth and detail of characters in Mass Effect 4.

    If Bioware manage to create a game that is both highly engaging as a fun game, and as a intense, emotional driven story, I think Mass Effect could potentially be the best game in the franchise yet.

    That is a big if though - so far we have seen very little content showing off what Mass Effect 4 will be like, and most of the details of the game have been kept incredibly quiet. In fact, we aren't even sure if the game will definitely be called Mass Effect 4 or not.

  • 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.

  • "No One is Gonna be Disappointed" with Forza 6, Coming this Holiday Season

    forza 6 release"No one is gonna be disappointed" is the exact words you’d expect to hear from a marketing manager, and it's exactly what XBOX EMEA social marketing manager Graeme Boyd said in a recent podcast over at Rectify Gaming in reference to Forza Motorsport 6. However, I think we do have enough reason to believe him.

    Whist Boyd wasn't kind enough to give up a release date for Forza 6, he did mention that "There will be lots of Forza news to come, and Turn 10 in particular is good at communicating with the community when they have stuff to talk about."

    Hopefully this means that leading up to the release of Forza 6, we'll see a lot of great content, including gameplay reveals, juicy high-res screenshots and more for us to feast our eyes upon. Even though Boyd did not mention a planned release date, in another podcast, Aaron Greenberg did list Forza among a variety of games that will be making it's way to the Xbox One this holiday season.

    It's certainly true that Xbox has a great lineup planned this year, and I absolutely cannot wait for some of the game expos, such as E3 to kick off so that we can get a great first hands look into what is to come from Xbox, and in particular, Xbox One this year.

    Forza Motorsport 5 was great. but I think Forza 6 will be better by a wide margin. Turn 10 have had a lot of spare time to work on the title since the launch of the Xbox One.

  • New Mass Effect Will Have Some Online Components

    new mass effect onlineSo far, we know very little about the new Mass Effect game, but Bioware are slowly revealing bits of information about it. Although we have nothing to use to paint ourselves a picture of Mass Effect 4, we do have some details to go on.

    Recently, senior development director of Mass Effect 4, Chris Wynn, sent out a tweet, giving Mass Effect fans another very small piece of the Mass Effect 4 puzzle. In Wynn's tweet, it read "Things are getting real now and I need an excellent producer to come shape online for the next Mass Effect."

    Whilst he didn't straight up state that Mass Effect 4 will be getting some form of online play, asking for a producer for online pretty much confirms we will be getting some kind of online component in Mass Effect 4.

    Because we know so little about the upcoming Mass Effect game, we really don't have anything to suggest here. It could be possible that there could be some kind of multiplayer gameplay separate from the main story. Alternatively, we could see some kind of multiplayer drop-in features for the game's main story mode.

    What is clear is that multiplayer won't play a critical part of Mass Effect 4 - if that were the case it's likely Bioware would already have the producer they needed. So if you were hoping for a Mass Effect MMO you may be disappointed. However, let's hope something good does come from the new online producer for Bioware.

  • Killzone Devs Teasing Something New

    new killzone soonA brand new image has been posted to the Killzone twitter, suggesting that something will be coming "soon." Despite how vague this information is, it’s pretty clear that whatever that something is, it will be big.

    We can only speculate at this point in time - despite the announcement on the Twitter page, we have heard very little from within the Guerilla Games studio. No rumors have been spread in relation to Killzone over the last few months, so once again, we’re pretty short for answers.

    Some Killzone players are suggesting that the new announcement may be somewhat related to the PS Vita game, named Killzone Mercenary. Mercenary was released in 2013, so it's completely possible that the game could be receiving a timely update.

    Alternatively, there could be a completely new Killzone game for the PS Vita. Considering the 2 year gap since the last PS Vita title, it's not unreasonable to think Guerilla Games may completely scrap Mercenary to work on something completely new.

    It's completely possible that the new something may have nothing to do with the PS Vita whatsoever. A brand new Killzone game isn't entirely out of the question, although we expect we'll be more likely to see some kind of content patch for the game.

    Guerilla Games have already made a lot of changes to the base game of Killzone Shadow Fall, so seeing more changes would not be surprising at this point.

    Unfortunately, we can't really make any guesses past what we've shared here. We'll just have to be patient and see what comes in the near future.

  • Metal Gear Solid World Rumored to be Bigger than GTA V

    metal gear solid v world sizeSo, you may have heard a few times now that the world size in Metal Gear Solid V will be large, but a new analysis of the released map photos suggests that The Phantom Pain might just have a world that is larger than that of Grand Theft Auto V.

    In the new analysis by a NeoGAF user, screenshots of the in-game map shows off the size of the playable area, compared to the whole map size. Roughly speaking, the map in the Phantom Pain looks to be around 120 to 150 times the playable size of Ground zeroes, according to the NeoGAF user.

    With this information, the user calculated that it would take roughly 3 minutes to drive from one side of the map to the other. Whilst it takes roughly double this to travel across GTA V, the map in question only shows off Africa. Afghanistan is another area in Metal Gear Solid V that has been confirmed, and should roughly be the same size of Africa.

    Obviously a lot of the world in MGSV will be open desert land, so it won't feel engaging throughout the entirety of the map like Grand Theft Auto V does, but the travel times between mission areas will certainly be interesting.

    I can't wait to see how the developers of the Phantom Pain put all of the open space in their world to use. Are you excited to see what Africa and Afghanistan are like in Metal Gear Solid V?
