  • Halo Forge Weapon Glitch To Stay

    halo forge weapon glitch

    In a recent update, a glitch was found in Halo 5: Guardians that allowed players to have a whole world of new fun with custom weapons in Forge.

    The glitch in question essentially allows players to assign weapon effect, damage and fire rate to another weapon model by using the REQ pads. Not only did this glitch apply to Forge games, but the glitch carried out into custom games too.

    As an example, a player could place down a weapon pad and set it so that it spawns a REQ weapon. A player could then edit the item properties to change the weapon model. The end result allowed players to have SMGs that fired sniper bullets, plasma pistols that fired spartan lasers and all sorts of other things. Plenty of crazy combinations are possible with this glitch, and like mentioned before, this glitch does allow players to set up some incredibly fun custom games.

    Perhaps the most exciting bit of news to come from this all is that Tom French has confirmed that the glitch will be staying in the game. Tom French, the user generated content director for Halo 5: Guardians, wrote the following statement on Twitter.

    "FYI if you saw we decided to keep the weapon glitch. We were going to fix it but it's way too cool and the results are way too awesome!"

    The Forge weapon glitch is certainly way too awesome, Tom. We're excited to see that the glitch will be staying in the game.

    As for the eSports tournament, the event will see 32 teams battle it out for a huge prize pool. The prize pool will see some funds from the CWL 2016. The prize pool will sit at $2 million, topping out the total prize winnings from CWL events in 2016 to a huge $3.5 million.

  • "BioShock: The Collection" is Coming

    Bioshock The Collection Game

    2K Games has announced that a new BioShock collection will be coming soon. The collection will feature the previous BioShock games and all related DLC packs. As you can imagine, the title for the collection is simply "BioShock: The Collection."

    2K Games made the announcement with an announcement trailer, which has been posted to their Youtube channel. If you've played the BioShock games then the trailer is certain to send chills down your spine. It may be surprising, but it's been nine years since the first BioShock title. Nine years!

    2K Games has described the collection as being a $59.99 bundle with other $100 worth of content. Obviously this is taking the full game digital retail prices into consideration, and not the far cheaper price of a used physical copy.

    All three games have been remastered for Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4 with help from Blind Squirrel Games. Below, the content from each three games in the collection has been listed. On top of the full games and complete DLC, a number of extra have been added for each game. BioShock will receive a director's commentary called 'Imagining BioShock,' a virtual museum and extra challenge rooms.

    BioShock 2 will receive the Minerva's Den and Protector Trials DLC. BioShock Infinite will include all of the previously released DLC. Whilst everything seems pretty feature-rich, the multiplayer content in BioShock 2 will not be available unfortunately.

    The new collection will be available for purchase on Xbox One, PS4 and PC from September 13.

  • Overwatch Xbox One Gets Competitive Mode

    overwatch xbox one competitive mode

    A brand new update for Overwatch has been making ripples through the internet this week. The update, which has already seen a release on PC, has now made it's way to the Xbox One. So far the PlayStation 4 update has not been released but we expect to see it soon.

    The biggest addition to the new Overwatch update for the Xbox One is competitive mode. Competitive mode is open to all players over level 25. If you're not level 25 yet, you'll need to reach that level before you can take part in the new game mode.

    The new competitive mode will use a player skill rating, a new penalty system to punish quitters and rewards for winning games. Before a player is shown their skill rating they will need to take part in 10 qualifier games. Once the 10 games are finished, a skill rating will be assigned to your account.

    The skill rating in Overwatch competitive ranges from 1 to 100. 1 is the absolute lowest rating, whilst 100 is the highest. Players will see their skill rating adjust after the end of each game. Obviously performing well and winning games will help to increase the rating whilst losing games and playing badly will lead to lost skill rating. There will be seasons spread throughout the year - players will get their skill rating reset at the end of a season and rewards will be given out to the top performing players.

    A bunch of bug fixes have been added in the latest Overwatch update as well and perhaps more importantly, McCree and Widowmaker have both received balancing changes.

  • New Backwards Compatible Games Help Xbox One Library Surpass 200

    backwards compatible games july 2016

    The Xbox One backwards compatible games list has been growing ever since the feature was added to the console late last year. This month, new games have been added to the list and the total amount of compatible games has now surpassed 200.

    For those unaware, backwards compatibility refers to Xbox 360 games that are now supported on the Xbox One system. At the end of June Microsoft added the following games to their list.

    Bloodforge - Bloodforge is a third-person hack n' slash style game developed by the Climax Studios and Microsoft Studios. The game was originally released as an Xbox Live Arcade title in 2012

    Mars: War Logs - Mars: War Logs is a cyberpunk themed RPG game. The game was published by Focus Home Interactive. Originally Mars: War Logs was released in 2013.

    Gripshift - GripShift was a stunt driving game that was developed by Sidhe Interactive and co-published by Red Mile Entertainment, Sony Online Entertainment and Ubisoft Entertainment for the PlayStation Portable handheld in 2005. Later it launched as an Xbox Live Arcade title.

    Go! Go! Break Steady - Go! Go! Break Steady is a puzzle game developed by Little Boy Games. The game was originally released in 2008.

    Whilst these games may not be the most popular titles in existence, it's good to see that more developers are working to include their game in the backwards compatible program. A lot of the most popular titles have already been released for the backwards compatible program and plenty more games are going to be added in the future.

    With backwards compatible Xbox 360 titles, players are able to continue earning achievements and make save game progress. Unlike the backwards compatibility feature for the Xbox 360, the Xbox One essentially emulates the Xbox 360 system so that games can be played in their entirety.

  • Could There Be a Killer Instinct Mortal Kombat Crossover?

    Mortal Kombat Killer Instinct

    If you try to pair fighting games, Tekken and Street Fighter go quite well together, and this has lead to crossovers in the past. For Mortal Kombat, the best pairing would definitely have to be Killer Instinct. Both games offer a slightly more brutal approach to fighting, and according to Ed Boon, the idea of a Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat crossover would be a good idea.

    On Twitter, Ed Boon mentioned 'I loves me some KI but a crossover would have to be Xbox exclusive.'

    Funnily enough, Phil Spencer later tweeted in reply to state that he 'loves' the idea too. Well, right there we have the two men that could make a real crossover happen, and they both agree on the idea.

    Whether or not this was a little marketing ploy by both Netherrealm and Xbox is hard to say, but we wouldn't be surprised if a Killer Instinct and Mortal Kombat crossover title was now in the works. Because Killer Instinct is Xbox exclusive, the crossover would also have to be Xbox exclusive, which is a bit of a shame because Mortal Kombat has always been available on multiple platforms.

    With that being said, with Xbox's recent adoption of Windows 10, it's likely that a future crossover would also be available on Windows 10 PCs. Unfortunately we doubt we'd ever see the game reach PlayStation and that's if it ever did come to light at all anyway.

  • Battlefield 4 Second Assault DLC Now Free

    battlefield 4 second assault free

    If you're a Battlefield 4 player and own the game on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 or PC, you may want to head into game because DICE has just released Second Assault as a new free update.

    The new change has been added as part of DICE's new 'Road to Battlefield 1' campaign, which will essentially re-release old content for free to hype up previous Battlefield players and encourage others to get back in the game in anticipation for the new Battlefield title later this year.

    Before this change, Second Assault was available for $15, so if you've always wondered what the Battlefield 4 DLC content was like but didn't want to spend any extra cash on the game, you can now find out for yourself.

    Operation Metro, Caspian Border, Gulf of Oman, and Operation Firestorm are included in Second Assault, all of which are re-imagined versions of Battlefield 3 maps. Second Assault also adds five new weapons and 10 new assignments to the game.

    The new update will have to be downloaded manually - Simply head to the area you'd usually buy DLC once you are signed into your account and you'll find that the DLC will be available for free instead of the previous $14.99 price tag.

    If previous changes are anything to go by, we may see more DLC going free in the next few months leading up to Battlefield 1's release in October.

  • New Star Wars Battlefront Bespin Expansion Released

    Battlefront Bespin DLC

    The Bespin update for Star Wars Battlefront has been talked about quite a lot already but there's no need to talk about it anymore because it has finally been released.

    The new expansion, which is part of the season pass for Star Wars Battlefront, includes 5 new maps, two new heroes, new weapons and new star cards. The new expansion also adds a game mode which has been suitably named Sabotage. A description for the Sabotage game mode has been provided below.

    "The Empire are using Tibanna Gas Generators to power their tractor beams, preventing Rebel transports from escaping Cloud City. The Rebels must blow up the generators and defend their extraction point. The Empire must stop the Rebels and hunt them down."

    Whilst the new Bespin expansion content has been added to season pass holders, there has been a new patch alongside the update that brings some changes to all players. Firstly, the new patch has increased the level cap from 60 to 70. Players can also unlock new content for the Bespin wing guard and the Shock Trooper. These new unlockables are cosmetic based, so this doesn't include any new weapons or equipment.

    Besides some other, small general changes and overall bug fixes, the main included features for all players have been explained below.

    Firstly, Palpatine's' honor guard have been replaced with Royal Guards, and Leia's honor guards have been replaced with Alderaan Guards. This should help differentiate the two characters a little better on both the Empire and the Rebel side.

  • Halo 5 'Grunt Goblin' Coming to Warzone

    Halo 5 Grunt Goblin

    It may sound odd, but the 343 Industries team are adding a new enemy to Halo 5 Warzone and it's called the 'Grunt Goblin'

    The new Grunt Goblin will appear in games as either a Legendary or a Mythic boss. It's essentially a large covenant mech that seems to be the enemy equivalent to a Mantis. It's operated by a grunt and has a very, very large needler and a big fist that looks menacingly capable of smashing through pretty much anything.

    Character designer Steve Dyck left a few statements about the new vehicle. "There are two variants of the Grunt Goblin with different capabilities. "Essentially, the backstory of this battle suit is it was built by Grunts for Grunts in what the Grunt designers agreed was the perfect embodiment of agility and lethality."

    Senior systems designer Chris Proctor chipped in to say that, "Unlike other vehicles, the Grunt Goblin cannot be hijacked or boarded and has a complete immunity to EMP effects." This means plasma pistols aren't going to be any use against the Grunt Goblin.

    The secret to taking down the Goblin's needler, which is dual barrelled and has the ability to barrage up to eight players at once, is to destroy the Grunt Goblin's backpack. The Grunt Goblin really is just a big grunt and for the first time in Halo history, it's actually something you should give a little bit of respect when fighting against it.

  • Dreamhack Summer Street Fighter V Crowns Winner

    Dreamhack-Summer-Street-Fighter-V

    Arman "Phenom" Hanjani has taken his first Street Fighter V Premier win at the Dreamhack Summer event earlier this month by pulling in an impressive 3-1 victory against Ai "Fuudo" Keita in the grand finals.

    Whilst Fuudo did a good job at winning himself into second place on the Winner's Finals, the Grand Final saw Fuudo at a loss. Even with Fuudo's hard pressed attempts, Phenom outplayed Fuudo with an impressive showcase of skill and unpredictability.

    Phenom's victory was fast paced and filled with constant, non-stop attacks. It's almost as if you could feel everything Phenom had worked so long for all come out at the perfect time. Phenom managed to take a few other top ranking Japanese players down with him as he climbed the tournament rankings too. This included Mago and Reiketsu.

    Remaining almost entirely in the winner's bracket, Phenom managed to pull off the first European Premier victory since EVO 2014, where Luffy won with a hard earned victory whilst playing as Rose in Ultra Street Fighter IV.

    We can't wait to see how things will play out in EVO 2016 - perhaps we'll see another surprising European victory, or maybe we'll be given another set of surprises entirely.

    Below, the top eight players for the Dreamhack Summer event have been listed.

    1. Arman "Phenom" Hanjani

    2. Ai "Fuudo" Keita

    3. Hajime "Tokido" Taniguchi

    4. Tatsuya "Haitani" Haitani

    5: Daigo Umehara

    6: Olivier "Luffy" Hay

    7: Kenryo "Mago" Hayashi

    8: Yusuke "Momochi" Momochi
