  • Huge Halo 5 Guardians Gameplay Video Released

    halo 5 guardians gameplayA brand new video has just made it online that shows off a whole games worth of online content from 343 Industry's upcoming game, Halo 5 Guardians.

    Straight away, it's clear that the gameplay has been evolved more so than any Halo game before it. The first thing that is noticeable is that a lot of elements from Halo 4 have been incorporated into Halo 5 Guardians, including the various power drops and the overall look and feel of the gameplay.

    However, a lot of new things have been added to make the game feel more in-line with other AAA shooters on the market. For example, players can now dodge sideways, similarly to COD: Advanced Warfare, and players can also jump over objects in a similar style to Call of Duty games too.

    A new aim-down sight feature has been added, although there is no negative effects to hip firing luckily enough.

    If you are a long time Halo fan, you may not like what you see. Check out the multiplayer video here.

    Do you think 343 Industries have taken Halo a little too far? It's nice to see change, but are they taking the wrong turns? We would love to hear your opinions on this subject. Unfortunately, 343 Industries are trying to win back the mainstream market, and they are doing this by making choices that change the game into something Call of Duty players will be able to relate to.

  • Advanced Warfare Gets Early Launch Lag Issues

    advanced warfare bug patchLike many games in the franchise before it, the launch of Advanced Warfare has been filled with complaints from angry players who just can't play through the game without dealing with some kind of lag.

    Whilst Sledgehammer Games are working round the clock to iron out all of the issues that currently plague AW, there's no doubt that the game is less enjoyable than it should be right now because of all the problems. We have listed the most complained about issues below.

    Bad Hit Detection

    This seems to be a problem that is directly correlated with the issue listed below. Bad hit detection in Advanced Warfare will make it difficult for players to land hits at some points in the game, especially when the host of the server has a particularly bad connection.

    This is something Sledgehammer are working on, but it may be a few weeks before the hit detection problems are solved.

    No Dedicated Servers

    It seems all developers are opting for dedicated servers on their online games now, but Activision is still a little behind with Call of Duty. So far, Advanced Warfare is on a peer-to-peer network, which means you will be matchmade into a game that is hosted by another player. This will cause all sorts of connection issues, but Sledgehammer have promised dedicated servers in the future.

    Frame Lag, Especially at Game Start

    This seems to be an issue that is largely present on PC, but some console players have complained about it as well. Frame lag seems to be a current issue, especially at the start of a new multiplayer game.

    Sledgehammer should be working on this shortly, but it's not definite that they will be able to fix the problem completely.

  • Smash Bros Will Get MewTwo as Free DLC

    Smash Bros MewTwoWhilst all of the main characters for Smash Bros have now been revealed, Nintendo still have plans to add more characters to the roster in the future in the form of DLC.

    The first character to get the Nintendo DLC treatment has been revealed to be MewTwo. This is a character that hasn't been in the franchise since Smash Bros Melee, so I think there's a lot of excitement for MewTwo.

    MewTwo will be offered for free to those who buy both the 3DS version of Smash Bros and the Wii U version of the game. Whilst he is still in development at this point in time, MewTwo should be made available at some point in Spring 2015.

    Whilst he's been mentioned as a DLC character, no word has yet been given on whether MewTwo will be made available for those who do not buy both versions of the game, although the word DLC does suggest that he will be put up for sale for those not willing to splash out on both the 3DS and the Wii U version of the game.

    There's been a lot of new news about the upcoming Smash Bros games recently. On top of the announcement of the free MewTwo DLC promotion, Nintendo recently announced a brand new 8-player Smash mode which will be in the franchise for the first time ever.

    Whilst the game is available in some regions, the Wii U version will be available on November 21st for North America and December 5th for Europe.

  • Halo CE 1080P Trailer Shows Off OP Pistol

    Back in the golden days of Halo Combat Evolved, the pistol was the gun to use. Yes, snipers and rocket launchers were fought for, but the overwhelming power of the pistol made it a force to be reckoned with at all times.

    A new gameplay trailer showing off the Master Chief Collection in full 1080P had a selection of Combat Evolved multiplayer, and we couldn't help but notice just how over-powered the pistol seemed to be in the gameplay shown.

    When compared to pistols of many modern shooters to today, the magnum in Halo CE was just undeniably amazing, and we're happy to see that 343 haven’t made any changes to it on the Combat Evolved portion of the Halo Master Chief Collection multiplayer.

    Another interesting thing to take from the latest trailer is that there are now achievements in all games - gameplay clearly shows players earning achievements whilst playing on CE maps, which suggests that the game has had a slight overhaul, and I must say, it looks oh-so satisfying to get a set of pistol kills in Combat Evolved.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection is set for release next month. The full release is November 14th.

    Are you going to be purchasing Halo: The Master Chief Collection? So far, all of the Halo fans I have talked to have been very excited about the Master Chief Collection, and I must admit, I’m looking forward to giving it a go myself, too.

  • Far Cry 4 Trailer for Kyrat Edition Released

    far cry 4 kryat editionFar Cry 4 is getting a pretty spectacular special edition release, and Ubisoft were so proud of it that they have recently released a brand new trailer showing off the limited edition copy of the game.

  • Uncharted 4: A Thief's End Nathan Drake Model Shown

    uncharted 4 nathan drake modelNaughty Dog has just revealed a brand new screenshot which showcases Nathan Drake in their latest work-in-progress game, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End.

    The new screenshot, which can be seen above, shows off a 3D render of the new Nathan Drake model, which Naughty Dog have been using in Uncharted 4. As you can see, the detail on Nathan is undeniably impressive. From the pores and wrinkles on his head, to the creases on his shirt, this picture shows that Uncharted 4 really is going to look amazing.

    Naughty Dog recently addressed the public's voice and confirmed that the incredibly detailed E3 reveal trailer for Uncharted 4 earlier this year was in fact within the in-game engine, suggesting that the game is more than capable of rendering such high definition graphics.

    The new image showcasing the Nathan Drake model has been used to promote a new 3D modelling event that is being hosted by a range of developers. The event will include a variety of different shows, including a character modelling demo by Naughty Dog.

    Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is set for release at some point in 2015 - so far we have not received a definitive release date for the title, but it sounds as if Naughty Dog have got quite a lot of work to do on the game before they pin up a launch date to share with the world.

    We'll let you know as soon as we learn about the launch date of the game, or if any new information about Uncharted 4 is released by Naughty Dog.

  • Ratchet and Clank Remake Rumored For PlayStation Event

    ratchet and clank remakeThe Ratchet and Clank franchise has been one that many Sony fans have loved ever since the PlayStation 2, and with recent news of a Ratchet and Clank animated movie, hype for the series has never been so high.

    If you're a fan of Ratchet and Clank, then you'll probably be very excited to hear that it has been rumored that a Ratchet and Clank remake has been rumored to be in the works.

    The new game, which will be a remake of the original game for the PlayStation 2, is rumored to be releasing alongside the same time as the movie launch, and it will be made available for the PlayStation 4.

    As expected, the new remake is rumored to come with a new graphical overhaul, and some have even suggested that the game may end up looking very similar to the graphics seen in the Ratchet and Clank movie.

    Whilst nothing has yet been officially confirmed, reports suggest that the new Ratchet and Clank remake will be revealed on a special PlayStation game event, which has been set for December 6-7, 2014 in Las Vegas.

    A new Ratchet and Clank remake could be exactly what the franchise needs. It is clear that Insomniac Games haven't finished with the Ratchet and Clank IP yet, and that is shown by the current movie which is under production.

    Despite working on an Xbox exclusive right now, it seems as if Insomniac Games aren't locked into creating games just for one platform, which is great news.

  • Bloodborne "Only Possible" On PS4

    bloodborne ps4 exclusiveAccording to the developers of Bloodborne, the upcoming RPG title was "only possible" on the new PlayStation 4.

    Game director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that Bloodborne would not have been able to perform on previous generation consoles, meaning that the game would only be possible on the PS4 due to From Software's and Sony's current exclusivity partnership.

    "I [have] always wanted to make a game set in the Victorian era, but to make it look good - with all of the clothing, the architecture and things - required a console more powerful than the ones that were around. The arrival of the PS4 finally gave us that," Miyazaki revealed in a new interview with PlayStation LifeStyle.

    Miyazaki went on to explain that, "Bloodborne isn't a game that could have been cross-generation, it was only possible on PS4."

    To clear up any forthcoming confusion, Miyazaki did forget to mention that the game could run on the Xbox One - it could, but Bloodborne will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 so it makes sense for him to specifically mention Sony and the PS4, instead of 'new gen consoles' when asked about From Software's decision to stick to just the PlayStation 4 for release.

    For those unaware, Bloodborne will a game with similar elements to Demon Souls and Dark Souls, however the title will be slightly more forgiving than previous franchises by From Software.

    Bloodborne will be released on 6th of February next year as a brand new PlayStation exclusive. Recent gameplay from TGS 2014 revealed a couple of new classes.

  • Batman: Arkham Knight Gets June 2015 Release Date

    arkham knight release dateThe next game in the Batman Arkham series has finally been given the release date treatment by Rocksteady games and we can now confidently say that Batman: Arkham Knight will be releasing next year on June 2015 for current gen consoles.

    Whilst the main version of Batman Arkham Knight can be pre-ordered for $59.99 from various retailers, gamers who are big fans of the series may want to take a look at ordering either of the two limited edition versions of the game instead.

    The standard limited edition will cost $99.99 and will come with an 80 page artbook, issue zero of the Batman: Arkham Knight comic book, three in-game New 52 character skins, a detailed Batman statue and a Steelbook case.

    The limited edition sounds pretty impressive as it is, but this is just the start. For huge fans out there, there is the Batmobile edition. The Batmobile edition will come with all of the above, however the Batman statue will be replaced with a transforming Batmobile statue created by Triforce.

    As mentioned before, Batman Arkham Knight will be released for Xbox One, PS4 and PC in June 2015 next year.

    Batman Arkham Knight was originally planned to release in the 2014 launch window for both the Xbox One and the PS4, but it had since been delayed so that Rocksteady Studios could fully polish the game before releasing it. Guy Perkins, marketing manager for Rocksteady stated that "We feel that we have an absolutely awesome game in the works, and we want to make it as great as it possibly can be," so I personally think the delay is justified here.

  • Loyalty Rewards and Car Details for Forza Horizon 2 Revealed

    forza horizon 2 car listThe Forza franchise has now been out for so long that Turn 10 have managed to amass a rather large collection of cars that they have been able to move into each game quite easily. This year, Forza Horizon 2 is set for launch, and Turn 10 have just revealed details on the amount of cars we can expect from the game, as well as any rewards players can receive from the monthly loyalty program.

    Whilst Turn 10's previous game, Forza Motorsport 5, was filled with microtransactions that allow players to purchase new cars, Forza Horizon 2 has much less of that, and instead has a much larger free collection of cars. In total, players will be given access to a huge range of 210 free vehicles in Forza Horizon 2, and it's expected that future DLC will add even more cars to the game.

    On top of this, Turn 10 revealed the Forza loyalty program that will reward loyal players with monthly awards. Don't worry, you won't have to spend any money to be a part of the Forza loyalty program. Instead, you'll just need to spend a certain amount of time within Forza games each month.

    Players will also be able to complete objectives in Forza Horizon 2 to receive rewards, and in total, five new cars can be rewarded from the loyalty program each month for completing objectives. Forza Horizon 2 will release on the 30th of this month for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
