  • New Havoc DLC Shown for Advanced Warfare

    havoc dlc for advanced warfare - CopySledgehammer Games are gearing up to release their first ever DLC for their top selling COD title, Advanced Warfare, and from what we have seen so far, there is quite a lot to get excited about.

    Whilst many DLCs from the Call of Duty franchise have exclusively contained a variety of new maps, the new Havoc DLC for Advanced Warfare contains some extra content as well as the expected new map lineup.

    In the new DLC reveal trailer, two new guns have been revealed as part of the Havoc DLC, both of which are available as early access content for Xbox One players. The first weapon is the AE4 assault rifle, an energy gun that has a similar design to the energy shotgun and other energy rifle already in the game.

    The second new weapon in the Havoc DLC pack for Advanced Warfare is the AE4 Widowmaker, a custom variant of the same energy assault rifle model.

    So far, we do not know what new maps will be revealed for Havoc, but we expect that Sledgehammer Games will include two to three new maps within the Havoc DLC for Advanced Warfare.

    Once we have more information, we shall let you know, but for now we only have the new official Havoc weapons trailer to go on.

    What do you think about the new DLC for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare? Do you think it would be worth splashing out cash for the new content, or would you prefer to make do with the maps and weapons already in the game from the beginning?

  • Just Cause 3 Screens Showcased

    just cause 3 screens - CopyI've always been a fan of the Just Cause franchise. Whilst Grand Theft Auto may always hold the top spot for the best open world third person franchise out there, Just Cause is known for it's huge expensive worlds that are often many times larger than other games, and it's great freefall and skydiving mechanics.

    Just Cause 3 is set to make it' way to consoles in the new future, and some new screenshots show off some of the great mechanics we've come to love from the series making a triumphant return.

    Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios posted a huge gallery of new screenshots for Just Cause 3, so there is a lot to gawk at, but there are a few screens that got my attention. An interesting showed the protagonist of Just Cause 3 riding an airborne car as it plummets to the ground.

    Another image had an epic showcase of the great grappling mechanics that allow players to hitch on to any ride, whether it's on the road, in the sea or in the air. In this case it was a helicopter.

    One thing that was clear from seeing all of these screenshots is that Avalanche are doing a great job at making Just Cause 3 look very nice, and I really cannot wait to get my hands on the game when it is finally released.

    Just Cause 3 has been planned for a launch at some point in 2015, although we aren't yet sure when this will be - it will release for the Xbox One, the PS4 and the PC.

  • Riptor Returns as New Killer Instinct Character

    riptor killer instinctSince the launch of Killer Instinct for the Xbox One, the developers behind the game have been slowly releasing more content for it over time. Perhaps the most exciting part of any new content releases for Killer Instinct are the introduction of new characters, or more specifically in this case, the re-introduction of characters from the franchise that did not make it into the game at launch.

    One such character is Riptor, and Microsoft Studios have just revealed their plans to bring him to the new Killer Instinct on the Xbox One. Riptor featured in the original Killer Instinct game, and is a hybrid between a human and a velociraptor. The character stands out from the crowd of other humanoid fighters in the game, not only for it's appearance, but for it's unique move set as well.

    Riptor will be entering the new Killer Instinct as part of the Killer Instinct 2 DLC, which will put players back a total of $19.99 for the Combo Breaker Season 2 pack, and a total of $39.99 for the Ultra Edition Season 2 pack.

    In the $20 bundle, players will get access to eighter fighters, five of which have so far been confirmed to be TJ Combo, Maya, Cinder, the new Kan-Ra, and now Riptor.

    The $40 pack includes the same characters, but also comes with some new accessories, as well as a copy of Killer Instinct 2 Classic which will be playable on the Xbox One.

  • Tekken 7 Character Gets Dropped from US After NeoGAF Thread

    tekken 7 lucky chloeThanks to the quick connectivity of the internet, games developers can communicate with their fans in new ways that can help game development become more in-line with what the players want.

    Usually, new features are added to games based on player input, but recently, a little too much criticism left Tekken 7 game director Katsuhiro Harada with no choice other than to press the red button on one of the games new characters, at least that's what he's told us.

    After announcing Lucky Chloe, a bouncy bubble, female character dressed up with plenty of kitten themed accessories, NeoGAF members argued that the character was very shallow and was completely unnecessary for Tekken 7.

    After hearing these complaints, Harada reacted by revealing that Lucky Chloe will no longer be available in the United States. He further went on to explain that the new character would only be available in East Asia and Europe, and detailed that American players would prefer Lucky Chloe to be replaced with a "well-muscled, skin-head, very powerful attack" character. Harada didn't confirm that such a character would be created, but it's certain that she will not be making an appearance in Tekken 7 for North America, at least for the time being.

    Personally, I think it's a bit odd that the developers feel the need to remove such a character from the game, but perhaps with all the GamerGate drama going on recently, doing so would remove any future controversy for the new and upcoming fighting game.

  • Microsoft Pushing for More Xbox One Game Discounts

    xbox one discounts christmasThe months leading up to the Holiday season are always pretty hectic, but for major tech manufacturers like Microsoft, things get incredibly crazy. With the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 currently fighting for the top spot, Microsoft had a lot to do to manage to get an upper hand on Sony's new console.

    One way Xbox managed to do this was by pushing for more deals and better bargains, and over the black Friday weekend, Microsoft managed to rake in a huge amount of sales thanks to their discounts around the globe, and this actually helped them to secure the most sold console units for that month.

    It isn't going to stop at black Friday either - Microsoft have learned that good deals make sales, and in tune with this they have regularly been putting up discounts on their consoles, and most recently, their first party titles, and some selected third party games as well.

    Firstly, digital copies of both Destiny and Call of Duty Advanced Warfare have been put up for just $19.99, half of their standard retail price. Secondly, the above games can also be purchased as a physical copy for $29.99.

    Halo The Master Chief Collection has been dropped to $45, and both Forza Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive now have digital copies going for $35. These discounts are not quite like the bargains available for both Destiny and Call of Duty, but still very generous nonetheless.

  • Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster In the Works

    final fantasy x HD ps4When it comes to any news about Final Fantasy, there are often a lot of mixed feelings. Whilst there are certain games in the franchise that many gamers have come to despite, there are also timeless classics that everybody adores, and one such game is going to be getting a new HD treatment in anticipation for a PlayStation 4 launch.

    The game in question is Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD, and whilst this game has already had an HD remaster for the PS Vita and the PlayStation 3, it will be the first time this game has been ported over to the newest Sony console.

    Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD will be launched for the PlayStation 4 and it will be made available both from the PlayStation network and from within select brick and mortar retail stores early next year.

    It is expected that the new HD remaster won't have many improvements over the previously released PS3 and PS Vita versions, although there may be some unexpected surprises. We will have to wait for the launch to see what Square Enix have planned for the HD remaster of Final Fantasy X/X-2.

    Whilst many PS4 owners have been happy about the announcement of this particular remaster, Square Enix also announced that they have plans to bring Final Fantasy VII to the PlayStation 4 as well, and as expected, not so many players were happy about this one.

    Many players have stated that they would much prefer to see a remake of Final Fantasy VI instead of VII - what are your thoughts on this?

  • GTA V Heists DLC Finally Revealed ... Hopefully

    GTA V Heists DLCI can't be sure whether this is a practical joke by Rockstar, or someone at their office decided to start April fools a whole four months early, but according to reports, Rockstar are gearing up to release their patch notes for a new update this month, and the exciting part is that they will contain the long awaited GTA Online heist missions.

    Rockstar did of course mentioned fairly recently that the first update to come after the release of the new console ports would include the new GTA heists, but after waiting so long, it's almost quite hard to believe.

    However, in the new patch notes for an update planned for December 23rd, it looks as if heists will be making their way to GTA Online, alongside other game changes. Unfortunately, this information only comes from a 'tipster' from within the development team, so we can't promise that any of this information is true or not.

    Interestingly, Rockstar has tried to cover up any spread information of the new update leaks, so we won't be posting the full details, however a quick patch summary can be read below.

    Heist (Planning Board) layout update for both High-End apartment interiors. This will be available across all platforms.

    Brand new 'Heist' selection menu featuring it's own Social Club-based leaderboard and misc options showing the list of un-completed Heist missions). This will be available across all platforms.

    34 Texture Modifications to 4 different locations, this is in favour of added effect during Heist missions. This will be available across all platforms but the texture detail is improved on current-generation.

    6 Heist missions in 4 unique locations.

    5 Cops and Crooks missions in 4 unique locations.

    Improved anti-cheat methods. Some code for this is included in the DLC, but is not associated with the Heist feature itself.

    Three brand new vehicles. The names of these vehicles are still identified by their Dev tag and are not yet finalized but the approximate vehicle class is; Sports Classic and Sports.

    Brand new Apartment - CCTV function with two AI-characters in your apartment running them. This feature is available for current-generation only.

    Three Heist-themed clothing items - these items are still identified by their Dev tag but are the following types; Special Outfit (available from the counter).
    Two Cops and Crooks-themed masks. These mask items are available in current-generation only.

    BZ Gas will now be purchasable from Ammu-Nation but can only be used in Heist missions - you are responsible for stocking-up on these and if you run out, your team mates will need to complete that objective for you.

    5 new hairstyles - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    2 new contact lenses - these are still identified by their Dev tag.

    Additional matchmaking for Heist missions between Crews - this is a feature implemented in 1.17 but will be activated in 1.19/1.05.

    A new phone contact named 'Jeff' will be available, offering a chance to resurrect a killed-off Crew member during your Heist operation. The voice of this contact or any other options associated are still unknown at this point.

    Last-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.

    Current-generation players will have the option to 'Email' other Crew members about your planned Heist mission and have the ability to print those out in your Apartment and store in your documents, whoever emails you a Heist plan will be the leader of the operation.
    All players will have the ability to use their Heist planning board in order to select a location, chosen online-Crew members and their role and the length of time before the Heist request expires from their 'Email' app on their phone.

    4 new audio files, relating to the Heist missions. These are identified as an alarm bell, the sound of a vault opening, sirens and a background track.

  • Destiny's DLC The Dark Below Breaks Weekly’s and Heroics

    Destiny DLC The Dark BelowEver since the release of Destiny, Bungie have been filling the game with variations on different challenges each week. These weekly challenges are something that often keep players coming back for more, and these, alongside other timed challenges such as the heroic missions are the core of end-game gameplay.

    Unfortunately, the new Destiny DLC, the Dark Below, has caused some trouble with the way weekly's and heroics work, and many Destiny players have sparked outrage in the Destiny community.

    Currently, because of the way the Dark Below works, often the weekly missions and heroics are selected for the new DLC areas, which prevents any non-paying members from getting their hands on their weekly challenges.

    The only solution for players at this point in time is to purchase the $19.99 DLC, and without doing so weekly's will remain locked out for those players. Honestly, I don't see Bungie doing this purposely, and I'm sure it will be addressed shortly. Still, I do think it is a little unfair for those players that have supported the game since day one.

    I do hope that Bungie either add non-DLC weekly's and heroics to the game, or remove the DLC ones completely, because otherwise the new DLC is essentially locking out content from the game that was originally intended to be part of the original package.

    Many players have already expressed their criticism for Destiny's lack of content, so I can't see any of this going down too well across the internet. Do you think this is as big of a deal as some are making it out to be?

  • PS4 Anniversary Console Comes and Goes in the Blink of an Eye

    ps4 anniversary consoleIf you have been keeping your eyes on the newly announced PlayStation 4 anniversary console, then you will know that the product is pretty hard to come by. Whilst at first we thought that the console would go up for sale just like any other standard variant of the PS4, it seems that this is not the case.

    In fact, many gamers have complained at the difficulty of trying to grab one of the new anniversary PlayStation 4's. Whilst there are odd deals such as PlayStation stores giving away PS4s for just £19.99 in London, the console itself cannot be officially purchased online from any retail store, and whilst Sony did put up an unannounced purchase page for the anniversary PlayStation 4, within minutes that page came crashing down, and it seems as if all copies have now been sold.

    Let's admit it, the new PS4 anniversary console, does look really nice, and I'm sure a lot of gamers want to get a hold of it, as it's nostalgic design is a piece of many people's childhood.

    Sony have been pretty quiet about their plans for the PS4 console, but I do hope that it becomes more widely available, even if it is just for a short period of time.

    I already have a standard black PS4 console, but I wouldn't mind picking up the anniversary version if I could ever get my hands on one. Would you do the same?

  • Uncharted 4 Looks Incredible on PS4

    uncharted 4So a new gameplay trailer of Uncharted 4 was just released, and the internet has been taken aback by how amazing the game currently looks. Personally, I'm not all that surprised at the quality of the fourth Uncharted installment, and I'll tell you why.

    Every time Naughty Dog have released a new game, their attention to detail has always been on point - they managed to release the Last of Us on the PS3 and make it look incredible, and every Uncharted release has always been miles ahead of every other game released in it's time in terms of graphical integrity.

    This time round, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End certainly looks like the best game the PlayStation 4 will have to offer, and everything from the sweat on Drake's back, to the pores in his face are textured by hand, and it's just phenomenal how Naughty Dog continue to amaze with the quality of their games.

    Something that really got me interested about the latest gameplay video was the amazing combat - it seems every fight was action packed and filled with tense struggles, especially when Drake was not equipped with a weapon, but his assailant was.

    I honestly think Uncharted 4 will be the best PlayStation 4 game for a long while, and there isn't really much coming anytime soon that will have the story, graphics and love that Naughty Dog have poured into A Thief's End. What are your thoughts on the game? Feel free to let us know your own opinions.
