  • Keyboard/Mouse Is Coming to Xbox One

    keyboard mouse xbox oneFor those that forget or were unaware, Microsoft is still working on bringing mouse and keyboard support to the Xbox One. In fact, they're so close that they're almost ready to announce the first title to support mouse and keyboard support.

    Director for Xbox, Mike Ybarra, recently spoke at a PAX West panel and answered some questions about the progress of keyboard and mouse support for the Xbox One.

    They mentioned that the feature is still coming, but they need to be careful about how they implement it. They made it clear that they understand players are concerned about the unfairness of going up against somebody with a keyboard and mouse, so they'll make it a mission to ensure developers have guidelines in place.

    With these guidelines, it will be down to the developer to decide whether they add keyboard and mouse support for their games. Developers are also encouraged to give those with a controller the option to only play with other people with a controller. It'll be the same for those that have a keyboard and mouse so that players can be given an equal playing field.

    For games that don't have competitive multiplayer, for example, a single player or a co-op game, keyboard and mouse support can be added without the need for a system such as the one mentioned above.

    The Xbox team will give developers the opportunity to be coached on how to implement a fair system if a developer does decide to add keyboard and mouse support for their Xbox One title.

  • Xbox Game Pass Announced

    xbox game passThe Xbox Game Pass has been announced and it's seeking to be the Netflix of gaming.

    The newly announced Xbox Game Pass will cost users a monthly fee of $9.99, but with it will come unlimited access to over 100 titles. Unlike Netflix, users of the Xbox Game Pass will be able to download their games and play them - there will be no limit to the amount of games a player can download at once, as long as they have enough internal memory and their Xbox Game Pass subscription is still active.

    Some of the games included in the Game Pass are older titles that can be picked up for cheap, both digitally and in physical form, but a lot of the games are recent releases. Most titles on the list so far are considered to be very decent games, too.

    Highlights of the Game Pass include access to Halo 5: Guardians, Gears of War Judgment, Gears of War Ultimate Edition and NBA 2K16. The Xbox Game Pass also includes a number of classic Xbox 360 titles and arcade games such as Kameo, Hexic HD, Perfect Dark Zero and Fable 3.

    So far the Xbox Game Pass is limited to select users, but it will be rolling out to the public later this year. It's expected that more games will be added to the Xbox Game Pass regularly, but most new titles will be Xbox One exclusives. There may be a waiting period between a game release and it's availability on Xbox Game Pass, though. While Gears of War and Halo 5 are available, neither Halo Wars 2 nor Quantum Break are available on Xbox Game Pass yet.

  • Official Red Xbox One Controller Coming

    red-xbox-one-controllerIn an interesting move to stand out from the crowd, Xbox has announced a bright and colorful red Xbox One controller.

    The new all-red controller is expected to hit the online Xbox store from January 11. By all-red, we really mean it by the way. Everything from the accents on the buttons to the chassis and bumper buttons is red. The only hint of non-red is seen on the Xbox symbol, which remains white.

    The new controller will be on sale for $64.99, and GameStop will also stock it, both online and in-store.

    This isn't the first time Xbox has attempted to offer their customers new personalization options. In the past, they released the Xbox Design Lab, which allowed players to pick out their own colors for each part of an Xbox One controller.

    Despite the selection of colors, the Xbox One Design Lab still can't trump our own Custom Controller Creator - we add a greater range of colors for selection, and also have a variety of decals and fancier graphics available for the main chassis. And let's not get started on the variety of features and mods that can make our controllers even more elite than the Elite controller itself.

    We like where you're going Xbox, but you've still got a lot of catching up to do in the custom controller game.

    Why not take a look at our custom controller creator to see how it compares to the Xbox Design lab? We'll be surprised if you disagree.

  • Danganronpa Another Episode coming September for Europe and NA

    A brand new trailer and a number of screenshots have been released for Danganronpa Another Episode: Ultra Despair Girls, and alongside it a release date has been announced by NIS America. Danganronpa Another Episode is set for release this September in Europe and North America.

    Danganronpa Another Episode will be released on the PS Vita on September 1 in North America and September 4 in Europe.

    Danganronpa Another Episode will take a slightly different approach to the first two games in the series. This time round, the action adventure title will focus on two heroines - Komaru Naegi and Toko Fukawa. Both the characters are thrown into Towa City, and it’s been plagued with despair and depression.

    The Danganronpa series has always been one of NIS America’s more action packed titles, so if you’re not so much for the turn based JRPG style of their other games, you may be more interested in Danganronpa Another Episode.

    In Danganronpa Another Episode, Komaru Naegi plays a large role in the story of the game. Komaru is Makoto Naegi’s younger sister, and she has been imprisoned inside a mysterious building for over a year. In Danganronpa Another Episode Byakuya Togami, a member of the Future Foundation attempts to rescue Komaru.

    The rescue is derailed as swarms of Monokumas attempt to attack Byakuya Togami. Eventually, Komaru does escape but she finds that the city has been taken over by a group of child warriors named the Warriors of Hope.

  • Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold Coming February 12

    The successor to the first Etrian Odyssey is making it's way to Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS early next year on February 12. The game will be released on both platforms as separate titles. The first of which is a Nintendo 3DS remaster of Etrian Odyssey 2: Heroes of Lagaard.

    The remastered edition includes new dungeons, remastered graphics and various system improvements, making it the most definitive edition available for you to get your hands on.

    The second game is the Untold portion - this is a brand new story mode that gives players a fixed party to play with. There's voiced dialogue and animated cutscenes that takes a look into the bittersweet story of the Fafnir Knight and Princess Arianna.

    Untold will have a strong focus on the characters and their own involvement with the Fafnir Knight's story. As the game unfolds, your part will adventure into the ruins of and the Yggdrasil Labyrinth. The party includes Flavio the protagonist and two accomplices, Bertrand and Chloe.

    Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold will have varying levels of difficulty that newcomers and veterans alike will enjoy. On top of a hardcore Expert mode for the die-hard veterans, there is also a Picnic mode that makes the game a walk in the park - this is a great option for those that just want to enjoy the story of the game and not be presented with difficult within the game.

    The Fafnir is also added as a brand new character class and will only be available in the game's story mode. The Fafnir has the ability to transform into a beastly demonic form that can enhance the Fafnir's attributes and abilities.

  • Street Fighter V Gets M Bison Reveal Trailer

    Street Fighter V M BisonM Bison has just been revealed by Capcom in a brand new reveal trailer for the character. The new trailer shows off a few other Street Fighter V characters before showing the new M Bison. Unsurprisingly, not much has changed to the character, but M Bison has had a nice re-texture to meet the higher quality graphics that Street Fighter V features.

    M Bison originally made his way into the Street Fighter franchise in Street Fighter 2 and as you can imagine, he has stuck around ever since.

    So far, we're still not very sure about the confirmed lineup for Street Fighter 5, but M Bison makes his way as the fourth confirmed character. Before M Bison, players were introduced officially to Ryu, Chun Li and Charlie.

    It's likely that we'll see a large roster of character we've already seen from Street Fighter titles in the past and if we're lucky we may see a new face or two as well. Unfortunately Capcom has chosen to reveal each character separately so it may be some time before we know the full character roster for Street Fighter 5.

    Street Fighter 5 does not yet have a definite release date but it has been planned to release some time next year. The upcoming Street Fighter game will be available exclusively on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    In other news, Community Effort Orlando, a host for a fighting game tournament, has confirmed that a playable demo of Street Fighter 5 will be available at the tournament, which takes place between June 26 to June 28.

  • New God of War 3 Remastered Trailer Revealed

    god of war 3 remasteredA brand new trailer for the upcoming God of War 3 Remastered for the PlayStation 4 has been released and it depicts Kratos in all his HD glory. There's no doubt that God of War 3 Remastered looks like the most visually impressive game we've seen in from the IP so far. Players will be excited to hear that Sony are aiming for 1080P resolution and 60fps for God of War 3 Remastered, but the way Sony worded sounds as if a 60fps constant frame rate may not be guaranteed.

    Considering that the entire game will be getting a visual overhaul in God of War 3 Remastered, it'd be understandable to see why 60fps may not be achievable all of the time. Despite this, Sony are putting a lot of effort into the performance side of the PlayStation 4 port.

    If you plan to pre-order God of War 3 Remastered ahead of the launch of the game, Sony will offer up a few free bonuses. Unfortunately none of the bonuses will consist of in-game content because the remastered version has mostly untouched the content from the original God of War 3.

    Instead, players will be given a free dynamic theme for their PlayStation 4. The theme given out will be God of War - Fall of Olympus. If players pre-order through the PlayStation Network, the theme will be given out to those players this week instead of when the game releases.

    Players can also get a free 90 day rental for both God of War and God of War from the PlayStation Network for pre-ordering God of War 3 Remastered.

  • New Yoshimitsu Revealed for Tekken 7

    new yoshimitsu tekken 7Bandai Namco has finally announced that Yoshimitsu will be returning to the franchise in Tekken 7. With Yoshimitsu being one of my favorite fighting characters of all time, I was pretty excited to hear the news, but Bandai Namco has done something a little... strange with him.

    If you look back to previous Tekken games, you'll notice that Yoshimitsu never really has one appearance style. He'll always have drastically different costumes in each game. For those who don't keep an eye on the series it's easy to lose track of what Yoshimitsu actually looks like.

    The latest rendition of Yoshimitsu for Tekken 7 is beyond a shadow of a doubt the weirdest we've ever seen him before. Yoshimitsu now has a number of tentacles branching off of his face.

    Yes, that's right. We've been tricked. Yoshimitsu has been a space squid on legs all this time. Whilst you may not personally like the new Yoshimitsu looks it's important to note that there are bound to be plenty of costume options and clothing items to create a Yoshimitsu that's more in lines with the original.

    And whilst Yoshimitsu's appearance is so different, his fighting style is still the same and that's all that really matters. Right?

    So far we still don't know when Tekken 7 will be released internationally. The game is already widely available in Japan. We'll keep you updated about the launch details for Tekken 7 as more information comes in. Hopefully the western release dates will be announced soon.

  • DICE Explains Why There are no Battlefront Space Battles

    no battlefront space battlesNo space battles. Star Wars Battlefront with no space battles. I found myself saying this over and over when I first heard it, but as the idea sank in, I've become more accepting of the idea. I'm not entirely convinced Battlefront by DICE will be a great game, but I'm ready to see what they make of it.

    According to DICE, there were some interesting design choices made that decided the fate of space battles in Battlefront. DICE's Patrick Bach revealed the following statement in an interview with Official PlayStation Magazine UK.

    "We want players to stay in the same environment - we don't want players to fly off and do something over *here.* It's about the Battlefront experience, so we want to keep you in-atmosphere and fighting with the infantry."

    The one part about this sentence that doesn't seem to make sense to me is "It's about the Battlefront experience." DICE seem to be doing a lot to the franchise to take it away from the original Battlefront experience, and by removing space battles, this takes DICE's reimagination of the game even further from the Battlefront we've come to know and love.

    I doubt Battlefront will inherently be a bad game, but DICE really have to be careful with how they treat the IP. Let's hope that Battlefront turns out to be the game we've all dreamt of when it releases in April next year. Hopefully we'll see a bit more of Battlefront, including some gameplay, at E3 later this year.

  • Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 Announced

    tony hawks pro skater 5At long last, Activision has finally confirmed that a new Tony Hawk game is coming and they've even given some details about the game along with it. The new Tony Hawk has been titled Pro Skater 5.

    As the name suggests, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 will follow on from the first four original games in the franchise. Taking the game back to it's roots, we're bound to see game mechanics and features that were dropped out of the newer titles.

    Tony Hawk himself has been suggesting for a while that a new Tony Hawk game is in the works but this is the first time we've heard anything from Activision.

    The studio responsible for the development of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is Robomodo. Whilst they're by no means a bad development studio, they're perhaps best known for their other Tony Hawk titles, Shred and Ride. Robomodo also created the HD remake of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.

    It will be interesting to see what Robomodo can do with Pro Skater 5. They are probably the most qualified team in the world right now to be given the job of bringing Tony Hawk back to life, but we've not really seen if Robomodo can do a good job at making a "proper" Tony Hawk game yet.

    So far we do not know anything about a release date for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5. A lot of the details have been saved for exclusive features for various publications so we'll have to wait a little while before we can find out more.
