  • New DLC May Make Alucard Playable in Castlevania 2

    Lord of Shadows 2 DLC][Lord of Shadows 2 DLC

    The new Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 video game has been fairly enjoyable, and I've actually been surprised at how much I've enjoyed playing through the game revival. However, unlike it's older predecessors, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 lives in an age filled with DLC and extra content, so to get the most fun out of the experience, we'll have to wait for Konami to release their planned DLC packs.

    According to a forum member on CS.RIN.RU by the name of UbiSergei, the first Lords of Shadow 2 DLC pack will be called Revelations, and it may allow players to play as Alucard. The story of the DLC will let players discover a new plotline and understand "the true extent of Alucard's involvement."

    Alucard has been in the Castlevania series since Castlevania 3, so it'll be interesting to see how big fans will react to being able to play as the character. In Lords of Shadow 2, Alucard's father, Dracula, plays a pretty large role in the plotline, so it'll be interesting to see where the Revelations DLC may take us.

    For those more interested in the gameplay content instead of the story, the Revelations DLC is expected to come filled with "rich new environments and challenging puzzles" as well as various different creatures for Alucard to fight.

    As this information is all unofficial at this point, it's best to take it all with a little grain of salt until we hear something more official from the game's creators.

  • New Character Added in Free Tekken Revolution Patch

    Free to Play PlayStation 3 Beat'em up Tekken Revolution has just received a new patch that adds a new character to the playable roster, as well as changing a few other things around in game, too.

    Namco Bandai has revealed that the new update, which is now available to download, includes Jaycee, a character who was first seen in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and has a Lucha Libre wrestling fighting style. Jaycee is in fact a masked version of Julia Chang, who was first seen in Tekken 3.

    This new patch adds a few new things to the game to celebrate Valentine's day as well, and also adds a few tweaks and fixes to the flow of Tekken Revolution. One of the new changes has made it possible to get an increased chance to be a lucky winner with the Blood Seal Jackpot, however this deal was only available from the 14th of February to the 19th of February.

    Prices for premium effects have also now been lowered in a sale, but will go back to full price on February 24th.

    A new level cap has been implemented into the game, giving long-time players more challenges to work towards. The new level caps are Level 70 and 25 Dan.

    There is also a Mojukin Festival event which runs from February 21st to February 23rd. I haven't had a chance to play Tekken Revolution so I'd be interested to see what differences the game has now that this title is free to play.

  • New UK Cinema Spot Released for Dark Souls 2 - Yes, it Looks Epic

    dark souls 2 spot

    If you can excuse the strange choice of music, I have something very exciting to show you. It's a brand new trailer headed for UK cinemas, and it shows some pretty intense footage of Darks Souls 2 in action.

    The trailer focuses on an iron-clad hero as he battles through numerous enemies, takes down a dragon, and goes through various forms of terrain. I know that the trailer doesn't really represent actual gameplay footage, but it still looks absolutely awesome.

    I was very interested in the first Dark Souls game but have yet to play it unfortunately, but I have heard many great things from the game, so this looks like a very nice treat, especially for anybody that has played the first game.

    The trailer seemed to be directly advertising the Black Armor Edition and the Collector's Edition of the game, and showed both copies with their exclusive goodies at the end of the trailer. The Black Armor Edition comes with the game, the title's soundtrack, as well as early access to the Black Armors weapon pack, which comes with five new weapons.

    The Collector's Edition also comes with the same exclusives, however it also comes packed with a 12" Warrior Knight figure, a Collectible art book, and a map of the game's world.

    Dark Souls 2 has been confirmed to be released this March, with March 11th, March 13th and March 14th playing key dates for different regions.

  • Beyond Two Souls Reached 1 Million Sales Last Year

    Beyond Two Souls Sales

    For a game that really isn't that much of a game, Quantic Dream's Beyond Two Souls has done significantly well. Despite critics complaining at the lack of gameplay content and the small amount of punishment that was given for player mistakes, it was all in all quite a nice game, and I think QD reached the goals they wanted to with this title.

    Beyond Two Souls was never really meant to be about the gameplay content, and instead offered a new "cinematic experience" if you will - something that feels like a movie but gets you just a little bit more involved.

    I can personally say I really enjoyed the title myself, and I'm sure a good portion of the 1 million players that bought the game did too.

    Quantic Dreams' previous game, Heavy Rain, has managed to ship an impressive 3 million copies since it's launch in 2010, so it'll be interesting to see whether Beyond Two Souls will be able to do the same.

    Considering that Beyond Two Souls is console exclusive, I really do have to tip my hat off for Quantic Dreams, and hopefully there will be more story-centric games from them in the future.

    Because of the simplicity of gameplay in Beyond, there really was no way for Quantic Dreams to tie in bonus content, DLC or paid extras whether they liked it or not, and that's another reason why I personally liked the game. There are too many developers out there that have money as their main goal.

    For those that are interested in the game but don’t want to splash out for a full copy, there is a free demo available for you to download in the PlayStation Network store.

  • PlayStation Now Streaming Service Announced

    PlayStation Now

    In the distant past of 2012, Sony purchased the Gaikai streaming service, and it looks like they have finally released plans to put the $380 million purchase to good use. At CES 2014 this year, a consumer electronics trade show, Sony showed and revealed exactly what they have done with the new technology they've purchased, and it could certainly be a game changer to the games industry.

    Andy House, CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment revealed that PlayStation Now is a new video game streaming service that will allow users to stream and play video games on a wide range of different devices.

    By using cloud hosting services, users will be able to stream video games and play them on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, among other devices such as tablets and smartphones.

    The new PlayStation Now service will not be a part of the main PS Plus subscription package, and users will have to use a new payment method to make use of PlayStation Now.

    Players will be able to “rent out” particular titles on the store for a certain amount of time, which will allow them to stream it through cloud services and play it on a wide variety of devices. When the rent period runs out, the game will no longer be playable. Alternatively, players can pay a subscription fee to play through a selection of different titles.

    Details on pricing and subscriptions are far and few at the moment, but more information about PlayStation Now is bound to come out closer to its official release.

  • Sony Says PS3 "Tough Learning" From PS3 Helped Realize PS4

    From the moment, PlayStation 4 was revealed it was obvious that Sony had learned from all their past mistakes made with the PlayStation 3. Although obvious, this observation was supported by what SCE CEO Andrew House had to say.

    138In a recent interview with MCV UK, House admitted the rough ride Sony went through during the early release of the PS3. But they didn't just try to deal with the problems, the learned from them. The valuable feedback that they received from the community is what they used:

    "Anyone can point out how those learnings have translated into the decisions we've made around PS4 -- selection of architecture, emphasis on ease of development, understanding PS4 had to be a highly connected and social experience. These were products of some tough learning we did on PS3."

    The results were obvious. In many ways the PS4 is the polar opposite to the PS3. It launched at $400 ($200 less than the PS3), made with off-the-shelf PC components which makes it easy for developers to code for, and Sony worked hard to make the console available worldwide. And it has paid off, currently selling more than 2 million units since launch. What more will Sony do? I can’t wait to see it go above and beyond anything the PS3 was ever capable of.

  • Sony Reports that Current Demand for PS4 Won't Be Met Till February

    Well if you're one of the lucky ones to have a PS4 then you don't have to worry. But those who have yet been able to grab one, you might still have to wait a bit. Sony is having the sale of their lives and it seems regardless of their plans of constantly restocking retailers, the demand is far from being met.

    During an interview with the Gardian, SCE CEO Andrew House said that Sony doesn't expect that they will be able to fulfill demands until even February. He said, "So I'd characterise it as being somewhat supply-challenged for the remainder of the calendar year, but hopefully we’ll be able to satisfy that pent-up demand as we get out to January and February."

    As of now, despite the unavailability, Sony expects the PS4 to outsell the PS3 within the firs fiscal year. Since its launch in November 2006 till March 2007, the PS3 sold a total of 3.5 million units. Standing by their initial assessment, they are expecting that the PS4 will sell 5 million units during the same 5 month time period.

    Currently they are anticipating their sales to hit 3 million by the end of 2013, and last we heard they sold 2.1 million units worldwide. The PS4 is currently available in 48 countries and will launch in their strongest market, Japan, in February. So what do you guys think, will they be able to reach the 5 million mark by March?138

  • Batman Arkham Origins Multiplayer released

    If you haven't got enough online DC face-smashing action out of Injustice: Gods Among Us or Batman Arkham: Origins, you may want to put your copy of Batman Arkham Origins into your Xbox or PlayStation as Warner Bros. have just released a new patch that adds an online multiplayer mode into the game.

    Batman Arkham Origins Multiplayer

    The new online multiplayer mode has been named 'Hunter, Hunted' and it splits players into three different teams. The first team is a three man team of Bane's thugs, the second is a similarly sized team of the Joker's thugs, and the last team is of course Batman.

     

    The game is in essence a team-based elimination game mode because after a player is downed, he or she will not be able to respawn in, making each game super fast paced. I've watched a little bit of gameplay footage and it seems as if the game plays out as a standard team-based elimination game mode, but because Batman is thrown in on top of things, the average experience of Hunter, Hunted is completely different.

     

    Players playing as batman can lurk around out of sight, picking off weak foes and waiting for the perfect time to strike, whilst the teams of thugs need to keep an eye out for batman and the other enemy team, and then work together to ensure they have enough team members left to kill off Batman at the end. Personally I think it looks like great fun.

  • Minecraft PS3 Set for Release this week

    Minecraft PS3 ReleaseDespite being out on the Xbox 360 since last year, no other ports have reached the market, apart for the pocket edition version for Android and iOS devices. However, that is about to change as it has been confirmed that 4J Studios, the team behind the console ports, has finally finished with the PS3 version and it is planned for a release this week.

     

    On Tuesday, 17th December, Minecraft for PlayStation 3 will be available as a digital download on the PlayStation store. The Minecraft Xbox 360 version is available for around $20, so it's likely the price of the PlayStation 3 version will be similar, however we won't be able to find out until it's release day tomorrow.

     

    Although it has taken 4J Studios a long time to port the Xbox version over to the PS3, the PlayStation version won't be missing out on any game content, and will include all of the features in the latest patch on the Xbox 360 version.

     

    The PS3 game will come with no extra skins or texture pack DLCs, but these will be added later on in 2014.

     

    The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ports were also planned for a late 2013 release, however they have since been delayed and will now only make it to consoles some time in 2014, along with the extra PS3 DLC content.

     

    4J Studios also have plans for improving upon the current gameplay experience for the console port, however they won’t be working on new updates for the consoles until all console versions are out, so TU14 for Xbox 360 has since been delayed.

  • Sleeping Dogs Developers Release Sneak Peek Triad Wars Screenshot

    Sleeping Dogs Triad Wars

    Sleeping Dogs was one open world action game that really caught a lot of our attention, and since then a lot of us have been wondering what has been going in the United Front Games studio after development finished for the title.

    Whilst rumors have been laid on the table about a direct sequel to the first game, there has been no official information on whether that is true or not - except for now that is.

    This week, a United Front Games developer revealed an image on Twitter that showed a small glimpse at what they have been working on since going quiet after Sleeping Dogs was released. It was later confirmed that the game was Triad Wars, which has been said to be a sequel for the first Sleeping Dogs game.

    In the screenshot, we can see that the game looks to be a 3rd person game, so it's likely at this point that it is indeed the next lineup in the Sleeping Dogs series.

    So far, details on the game have been pretty minimal, and in fact at this point there is almost no information on the game at all. We can guess by the title and the screenshot that the game will most likely involve some sort of gang war - perhaps a three-way gang war, or a war of gangs that have three members in each gang.. We really aren't sure just yet, but we'll keep you updated on this as always.
