  • 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.

  • Black Ops 3 Will Have Titanfall Wall Running

    black ops 3 titanfallYou may have felt like Call of Duty Advanced Warfare took a few too many pages from Titanfall's book, but apparently Black Ops 3 is going to be taking some more pages. Treyarch has officially revealed some details about Black Ops 3, including information about a special wall running ability that will be in the game.

    Just like in Titanfall, to wall run in Call of Duty Black Ops 3 you will need to approach a wall at an angle to begin wall running. You will have an invisible "energy" meter, and once this runs out, you will come back off of the wall and land on the ground. Leaping between walls can increase your energy meter, so you could potentially keep wall running for a lengthy period of time.

    Treyarch have always been great at creating multiplayer maps, so let's hope they can create some maps that allow players to really make good use of the new wall running ability.

    Call of Duty Black Ops 3 will also have a new swimming mechanic. Players will now be able to cross through any areas of deep water. When swimming, a player will be able to keep their gun in their hands, allowing them to shoot whilst swimming.

    I think it would be interesting to see how Treyarch implement both the new swimming and wall running mechanics into the Black Ops 3 maps. Treyarch have the potential to turn both of these features into useful game additions, but without much effort they could just end up being not-so-useful gimmicks.

  • Batman Arkham Knight Will Have Interesting Character Switch Mechanic

    batman arkham knightNew details have emerged about how players will play through Batman Arkham Knight. This time round, players will have access to different playable characters, and they will be able to swap between the different characters in a similar fashion to Grand Theft Auto V.

    Unlike Grand Theft Auto 5, the different playable characters in Batman Arkham Knight will not be going about their own business in the world. Instead, you can switch out to any superheroes accompanying Batman at the time at the tap of a button.

    This new information was revealed in a brand new trailer for Batman Arkham Knight. In the trailer, Cat woman, Robin and Night Wing are seen as characters that players can switch out to at any time. Whilst we aren't sure whether this will be the full lineup of characters, this trio of superheroes is going to be more than capable of making Batman's day just a little bit easier.

    When switching to a new character in the midst of a fight, you will sometimes be able to chain together some pretty spectacular dual play combo attacks. We've seen something like this in fighting games before but this is the first time it works so flawlessly in an action game like Batman Arkham Knight.

    The trailer ends with a small glimpse of Harley Quinn - if you pre-order Batman Arkham Knight before the game is released you will be able to play as her in the challenge maps.

  • Mortal Kombat X 1.02 Patch Fixes Bugs

    mortal kombat x 1.02For the most part Mortal Kombat X has been released without too many problems but it seems nowadays you can't have a game release without some kind of bugs or issues. Fortunately, NetherRealm Studios has been working round the clock to ensure everything is as smooth as possible.

    Recently, the 1.02 patch was applied to Mortal Kombat for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 and it brings a number of changes and bug fixes to the game.

    Perhaps the biggest noticeable changes to Mortal Kombat X in 1.02 are some tweaks to general gameplay and certain character’s move sets. Below the major game changes have been listed.

    General - Throws (regular or command grabs) will no longer sometimes connect on a grounded reacting opponent off a counter hit

    Shinnok (Impostor) - He can now control the location of a stolen Goro Stomp.

    Subzero (Grandmaster) - Combos on a grounded opponent frozen by the Ice Klone will now scale properly.

    Takeda (Ronin) - Added a new move "Quick Kall" (Down, Towards, Front Punch) which quickly returns a dropped blade without doing an attack.

    Takeda (Shirai Ryu) – He will now always teleport to the other side when doing the Air Shirai Ryu Port

    On top of the changes to gameplay, NetherRealm Studios gave out a free Klassic Sub-Zero skin to all players to say thank you for putting up with the few launch issues. The PC version also received a number of unique fixes for online lag and performance problems.

  • Release Date for Ultra Street Fighter IV Revealed

    ultra street fighter iv ps4You may want to go and check out the PlayStation blog because a new post has been released on there that reveals details about the release date of Ultra Street Fighter IV. We've already seen an Japan arcade release of Tekken 7 and Mortal Kombat X is now available worldwide, so Street Fighter fans are understandably getting hyped up for Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    According to the PlayStation blog, Ultra Street Fighter IV will be available in America and Europe on May 26 this year. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 for $24.99 and it will include all of the DLC that has been released in the past.

    If you have ever played Street Fighter IV on the PlayStation 3 and noticed that there was a slight input lag, you'll be happy to know that the PS4 release of Ultra Street Fighter IV will be free from the input lag problems seen in previous versions.

    Whilst we're not entirely sure how far the developer has gone to improve Ultra Street Fighter IV we do know that the resolution and frame rate has been improved. From what we can tell from the latest screenshots of the game, the character models and textures do seem to be a lot higher quality this time round.

    Will you be picking up the new PlayStation 4 version of Ultra Street Fighter IV when it lands in a month's time on May 26?

  • Free PS Plus April Games Announced

    ps plus april gamesTwo games have been confirmed for the next PS Plus free games lineup, and the rest of the games will be revealed next week.

    Sony has been running the free PS Plus games promotion for a long time now, and there's always something to look forward to at the start of each month if you're a paying PS Plus subscriber. This month, the two games we know that are definitely coming to the platform are Woah Dave! and Dishonored.

    Woah Dave! is an arcade style platform puzzle game developed by Choice Provisions. Woah Dave! takes players on a galactic journey through space as the main protagonist, Dave, fights against aliens and other strange space oddities. Whilst Woah Dave! will be free at the beginning of April, Sony have mentioned that this game does not count towards the official free PS Plus game lineup.

    The other game, which most likely will be one of the six free PS Plus games in April is Dishonored, and this is a stealth action game by Bethesda that was released in 2012. Whilst some players have complained about the length of Dishonored, there's no doubt that it is a good game, and being able to get it for free is more than enough reason to give it a go.

    A lot of PlayStation owners have complained about the lack of quality in the most recent PS Plus free game lineups, but it must be mentioned that these games are free, and it's likely that Sony have to go through a reasonable amount of effort to sign a deal with the game developers and publishers before putting games up for free each month.

  • 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.
