  • Sony Pays Homage to Crash Bandicoot in Odd Tweet

    Crash BandicootDespite being a very popular franchise for the original two PlayStation consoles, Sony has failed to mention anything about the future of Crash Bandicoot for a very long time. No news of development on new Crash Bandicoot games has been revealed by Sony, and many fans have presumed that the franchise is now dead.

    Whatever the truth may be, we don't know - all we can do is speculate. One rumor is that Crash Bandicoot has some trademark problems, and Sony doesn't actually own all of the rights to the game, which basically means they cannot get away with releasing a new Crash Bandicoot, even if they wanted to.

    Others suggest that development for Crash Bandicoot has simply been dropped by Sony following the last few games that did not sell very well on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    Either way, Sony has recently posted an image on their Twitter that pays homage to the franchise, and many gamers have jumped to the conclusion that Sony might just be planning a Crash Bandicoot comeback, and the Tweet, which is the first time Sony has publically mentioned Crash in a long time, is a small teaser for what is to come.

    Whether that is true or not, I cannot say, but I'm sure many PS4 owners out there would be incredibly excited to get their hands on a new Crash Bandicoot game. However, with the large amount of PlayStation exclusives currently lined up for release, it may be a while before a new Crash Bandicoot pops up on Sony's radar.

  • Lizard Squad Set For Ruining A Happy Xbox Christmas

    Lizard SquadIf you weren't accustomed to the name already, Lizard Squad is the title given to a group of online hackers that have spent their time bringing down online services for big corporations, and in the past they have managed to attack Sony, League of Legends and many other companies, typically related to the video game industry.

    They have now set their sights on an even bigger challenge, and it is actually quite scary, considering the damage they have done in the past. Lizard Squad took to Twitter earlier this month to announce that the plan to bring down Xbox Live on December 25th, and they hope to keep it down forever.

    The tweet stated, "This is not a threat, but a promise. On Christmas we will tap in to Microsoft and shut down Xbox Live, forever!"

    Obviously, Microsoft are taking the issue very seriously, and I'm sure they will do their best to ensure server performance is as good as possible leading up to Christmas. Microsoft did issue a warning that increased traffic may cause Xbox Live servers to be a little slower than normal on Christmas day, but other than this, no mention has been given about the potential loss of service from Lizard Squad.

    Honestly, I don't think Microsoft has too much to worry about, and there's no way Lizard Squad would be able to bring down their servers forever, if at all. We'll just have to wait for Christmas day to see exactly what happens.

  • Telltale's Game of Thrones Hits Consoles December 2nd

    telltale games game of thronesTelltale are pretty good at telling tales, let's be honest. They created the award winning The Walking Dead series, managed to live up to their high expectations with The Wolf Among Us, and very recently they returned to their story-telling roots by releasing Tales of The Borderlands - a great new game that follows the concoction Telltale are known for whilst exploring the backstory behind the Borderlands universe.

    Now, they have plans to release their in-development Game of Thrones game, and it's launch date has been set for December 2nd. On this date, the first part of a six episode series will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PlayStation 4, with an iOS release following shortly after.

    It seems that the entire Game of Thrones six-piece series will be available for just $30, although details on whether players will be able to buy each episode separately have not yet been mentioned by anyone at Telltale.

    I've played through The Walking Dead game by Telltale so I know there's a lot of potential for this Game of Thrones themed game too, but what do you think of the upcoming Game of Thrones Telltale game?

    It will be interesting to see how the game correlates with the story, and i'm sure a lot of die-hard GoT fans will be eager to find out just how close to the lore Telltale have stuck to with their game.

    Will you be picking up the new game on launch, waiting for reviews or skipping it entirely? Let us know your thoughts.

  • Detailed COD Advanced Warfare Prestige Emblems Detailed

    cod advanced warfare prestige emblemsWhilst nobody is yet the highest prestige in Advanced Warfare yet, the release of the game has allowed players to dive into the code and find out exactly what all of the prestige emblems look like.

    Admittedly, all of the prestige emblems in Call of Duty Advanced do look pretty cool, but the most interesting thing to come from the leaked prestige emblems is that there are a total of 16 prestiges in COD Advanced Warfare.

    It was revealed earlier in the year that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare would have a total of 15 prestiges, but it looks as if they have added in one more for the mix. On top of having 16 prestiges, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will have 50 ranks for each prestige, meaning you will have to level up a total of 800 times before you max prestige the game, which is pretty crazy.

    In the screenshot shown above, all 16 of the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Prestige emblems can be seen.

    COD Advanced Warfare released earlier this week, and from our first impressions we are very impressed with the game so far. It has enough new to the franchise to keep things fresh, but it still feels and looks like the Call of Duty we have come to know and love.

    It will be interesting to see how well Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has sold, considering that it is available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

  • New Payday 2 DLC Pokes Fun at Battlefield

    payday 2 dlcPayday 2 developers StarBreeze have just released a new DLC pack that is currently only available on the Steam PC store. The new DLC pack includes new guns, melee weapons masks and gun mods for just $4.99.

    The new Payday 2 DLC has been dubbed the Gage Assault Pack, and it's promotional art, as you can see above, uncoincidentally resembles the splash art from Battlefield 4. It's clear that Payday 2 has been designed to be a lighthearted game with a humorous approach to gameplay, so this fun-poking at Battlefield from StarBreeze is pretty funny.

    Whilst the $4.99 Gaga Assault Pack is currently only available for PC via Steam, it's expected that the DLC pack will eventually be released for other platforms as well, including the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    A more-in depth look at the Gage Assault Pack reveals that there will be a total of four new guns, four melee weapons, four masks, 28 gun mods, new mask materials and patterns, and a total of 10 new achievements. Unfortunately the new pack does not add any additional heists or extra gameplay content.

    Like previous Payday 2 DLC, players can still join up with one another regardless of what DLC each player has. In fact, the original Gage Weapon Pack for Payday 2 added grenade boxes to the game, and players without the DLC could use grenades when partnered up with a player who owns the DLC.

    We'll let you know if we hear anything about a PS3 or Xbox 360 release for the Gage Assault Pack.

  • September Games with Gold Lineup Revealed

    september games with goldAnother month has gone by, and Microsoft have announced their plans for September's free Games with Gold lineup. Whilst the new games for September may not be anywhere near as good as the free games released last month, you can still get hold of a couple of decent titles this month too.

    For the Xbox One, players with an Xbox LIVE Gold membership will be able to grab Super Time Force all the way throughout the month, starting from September 1st, and ending September 30th. Super Time Force is an arcade side-scroller title that seems to incorporate game mechanics from games like Contra, and even Alien Hominid.

    For the second Xbox One title, players will be handed Crimson Dragon for the second month in a row. Whilst the repeated free release for the Games with Gold promotion has disappointed some Xbox owners, it's important to note that Microsoft's original plans were to release just one Xbox One game for free per month.

    As for the Xbox 360, players will be able to download Xbox Live Arcade team based puzzle title Monaco: What's Yours is Mine from September 1st to September 15th.

    Half way through the month the available free Xbox 360 game will switch over to Halo Reach. Halo Reach has now been out for a number of years, and whilst it can be picked up for cheap second hand, it's still a decent title that holds Bungie's last goodbyes to the franchise.

  • New August Xbox Live Games With Gold Announced

    xbox live games with gold augustWe've just rolled into a new month, and that means it's time to talk about the next Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup. We've got quite a few treats in store this week, including some Xbox 360 retail titles, as well as a couple digital-based Xbox One games.

    Firstly, Xbox One owners with Xbox Gold will be able to treat themselves with Crimson Dragon, an Xbox exclusive that saw itself as one of the few available Xbox One launch titles the day the console was released. Crimson Dragon is an indirect sequel to Panzer Dragoon, a game that made it's rounds on the Original Xbox many years ago. Crimson Dragon will be available all the way throughout the month.

    Alongside Crimson Dragon, Xbox Live gold subscribers will be able to get their hands on Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut, which made it to reality after successfully being backed on Kickstarter. Both Xbox One games are available till August 31st.

    As for the Xbox 360, players will be able to pick up Motocross Madness, a Trials lookalike till August 15th, whilst later on in the month, Dishonored will be available from August 16th till August 31st.

    All of these games are still fairly new, so Microsoft are being pretty generous with month's round of Xbox Live free Gold games. This is possibly one of the best months we've seen since the Xbox Live Games with Gold loyalty reward program began.

  • We Might Just Be Able to Play Xbox 360 Games on the Xbox One in the Future

    New XBOX ONEBeing able to play the last generation of games on a brand new console may seem like a bit of a gimmick at first, but it is an incredibly useful feature that could help many gamers that are on a budget.

    Being able to trade in your Xbox 360 console to help cut down on the costs of the Xbox One is a great option to have, but after building up years worth of games, it may not be that easy for many gamers to give that all up. This is why Xbox 360 emulation on an Xbox One would be immensely handy. In fact, while they're at it, if Microsoft could make the Xbox One support original Xbox games as well, that'd be incredibly useful.

    Whilst Microsoft never revealed any plans to have such a feature on the Xbox One, recently Frank Savage, partner development lead at Xbox, revealed that it's not entirely out of the question. When asked whether there were plans to bring an Xbox 360 emulation system to the Xbox One, Frank replied with "There are, but we're not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately. It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the X86 stuff. So there's nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself."

    I'm sure if Sony were to offer an Emulation system on the PS4, Microsoft would feel obliged to follow through with a similar system, and vice versa. But until one player moves, no one is going anywhere with the whole emulation thing. Let's hope that Microsoft try to put more work into it, because I'd love to see it happen.

  • Titanfall Xbox 360 Version Will Offer Players 'the True Experience'

    titanfall xbox 360Whilst Titanfall has already been out for a while on both PC and Xbox One, Respawn Entertainment did originally plan for the title to have an Xbox 360 version released on the same date, too.

    However, delays in the development for the last gen port meant that the original release date had to be pushed back for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall, but it's finally almost time for the game to release, and despite previous concerns, it's looking like it may run fairly smoothly on the old machine.

    Whilst development for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall was handed down to Bluepoint Games, things should not be very different to the PC or Xbox One versions. Senior producer of the Titanfall 360 port, Daryl Allison, stated that despite the Xbox 360 being inferior in terms of hardware capability, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall won't have any limitations.

    "Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is the true experience: all the maps, modes, pilots, titans, weapons, burn cards, you name it, found in the Xbox One and PC versions. The game looks great, sounds great, and above all it plays great. There are of course some differences that are due to the technical limitations of the hardware - for example, the game runs above 30fps - but the experts at Respawn worked with us to ensure that all the intense, 6v6 wall-running, titan-dropping action is there."
    This is exciting news to hear, and it looks like Xbox 360 players will be able to play the true Titanfall experience when the Xbox 360 port is released later this month.

  • 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.
