  • Huge Halo 5 Guardians Leak - Aim Down Sight Myths Squashed

    Halo 5 Guardians ADSSo far, Microsoft have managed to keep things about Halo 5 Guardians pretty quiet, and the only content about the game that we have learned about in the past has come straight from Xbox themselves. However, over the weekend, a massive leak showing video footage of Halo 5 hit the internet, and it stirred a frenzy.

    Whilst the leak has pretty much been wiped from the web as of writing, the internet never forgets, and we can all still recall what the video displayed. The gameplay showed a few seconds of combat, focusing on a player using a Battle Rifle.

    What was clear right away was the changes that had seemed to be made to the ADS in Halo. Ever since Combat Evolved, ADS has been limited to scoped weapons like sniper rifles and battle rifles, and the strange new battle rifle ADS in Halo 5 Guardians confused many players into thinking that ADS would be the norm in the upcoming Halo game.

    However, a 343i official responded to the leak on Twitter and stated that ADS will not be the norm in Halo 5 Guardians. The tweet was as follows.

    "No penalty to hip fire in H5, no movement penalty when scoping/zooming, no flinch. Tune in for the beta gameplay reveal at #HaloFest Monday."

  • Advanced Warfare Gets Early Launch Lag Issues

    advanced warfare bug patchLike many games in the franchise before it, the launch of Advanced Warfare has been filled with complaints from angry players who just can't play through the game without dealing with some kind of lag.

    Whilst Sledgehammer Games are working round the clock to iron out all of the issues that currently plague AW, there's no doubt that the game is less enjoyable than it should be right now because of all the problems. We have listed the most complained about issues below.

    Bad Hit Detection

    This seems to be a problem that is directly correlated with the issue listed below. Bad hit detection in Advanced Warfare will make it difficult for players to land hits at some points in the game, especially when the host of the server has a particularly bad connection.

    This is something Sledgehammer are working on, but it may be a few weeks before the hit detection problems are solved.

    No Dedicated Servers

    It seems all developers are opting for dedicated servers on their online games now, but Activision is still a little behind with Call of Duty. So far, Advanced Warfare is on a peer-to-peer network, which means you will be matchmade into a game that is hosted by another player. This will cause all sorts of connection issues, but Sledgehammer have promised dedicated servers in the future.

    Frame Lag, Especially at Game Start

    This seems to be an issue that is largely present on PC, but some console players have complained about it as well. Frame lag seems to be a current issue, especially at the start of a new multiplayer game.

    Sledgehammer should be working on this shortly, but it's not definite that they will be able to fix the problem completely.

  • PS Plus Games for November Detailed

    PS Plus Games NovemberIt looks as if Sony really have their game on - as well as agreeing to only provide AAA or high quality indie titles for the free PS Plus lineup going forward, they have now revealed their free games for November, and so far there's a lot up for grabs.

    The first game announced for the PS Plus games for November was The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. Whilst the original Binding of Isaac has been out for a long time, the Rebirth version has only just dropped, so being able to pick up for free, practically on launch day, is a pretty big deal.

    For those unaware, The Binding of Isaac is a loot-filled rogue-like RPG arcade game - it can be picked up for free on both PS4 and PS Vita this month.

    The next free title this month is Escape Plan, a fun arcade game that whilst looking amazing on the big screen, was lacking a little gameplay wise.

    Finally, SteamWorld Dig has been put up for free for both PS Vita and PS4. along with The Hungry Horde, a brand new PS Vita arcade indie title. Two indie arcade games have been put up for free on the PS3. This includes popular strategy title Frozen Synapse Prime and arcade shooter Luftrausers!

    Sony also have a bunch of great games planned for the next couple of months, including Injustice and inFAMOUS: Last Light

    What free PS Plus games have taken your interest this month?

  • Xbox One Will Get 'Crazy' 2015 Lineup

    It obviously makes sense for any person in Phil Spencer's position to do all they can to promote the greatness of the Xbox One, but it's not all words - apparently we will be seeing a 'crazy' lineup next year for Microsoft's newest console.

    Phil Spencer said in a recent podcast that, "Looking at production schedules and how things are lining up, next fall is just crazy,"

    "This fall from a first party/third party standpoint is great. Next fall, honestly it's not hype at all, I honestly don't know that we can actually ship all the stuff that thinks it's trying to ship next fall. It just might be too crowded and we might purposely try to move some things out to spread it."

    We already know all about how busy Fall can be for the gaming industry, but it sounds as if Phil Spencer and the Xbox crew have so many games lined up for this time next year that they'll find it hard to fit them all in.

    Honestly, this is just the news we want to hear about, and it will be even better if the developers of these games work on pushing out releases all throughout the year, although undoubtedly Fall is going to be the biggest season for gaming as per usual.

    We don't know about everything that is lined up, but Halo 5: Guardians is coming, along with the new Tomb Raider, and even Quantum Break.

  • Advanced Warfare Gets All-Round Positive Reviews

    advanced warfare reviewAdvanced Warfare has been out for just a week, but the reviews keep rolling in, and so far critics seem pretty happy about what the game has to offer. In fact, most professional reviews so far seem to paint Call of Duty Advanced Warfare in a good light.

    On Metacritic, the game is sitting at a nice 80, whilst user scores are around 50-60, which is understandable considering the bad press COD Ghosts received.

    However, when it comes down to it, it's clear that Advanced Warfare is miles better than it's predecessor, and the work that Sledgehammer Games have put into this game can be seen all around.

    Below, we have provided a little peak at some of the reviews shared this week.

    GamesRadar: 4/5 - Multiplayer feels wonderfully fresh, thanks to the added agility of Exo Suit boosting. Sadly, though, co-op is unimaginative, and the story fails to satisfy when compared to previous installments.
    Polygon: 9/10 - For whatever minor missteps Advanced Warfare makes with its story, it more than compensates with vision and remarkable execution. The latter has never really been Call of Duty's problem - Ghosts notwithstanding - but Advanced Warfare adds enough and moves far enough forward with its new abilities to feel like a risk. Turns out, that's just what the series needed.

    GameSpot: 8/10 - The huge change in player mobility is less of a paradigm shift and more of an overdue retooling for an 11-year-old FPS franchise, especially in a year of mobility-focused shooters. Yet for all its predictability, Advanced Warfare is a deluge of action-film bravado, and it's difficult to not be carried away by its tidal forces.

  • 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.

  • Halo: Master Chief Collection Gets New Forge Mode

    halo mcc forge modeOne of the things that has helped Halo to stick around for so long is it's huge versatility. For example, the Halo 3 campaign was filled with tons of easter eggs and unlockables that could make playing through the game a second (or third) time still incredibly enjoyable, and it's multiplayer was always filled with a variety of hot-swappable game modes.

    To top it all off, Forge gave players the ability to create their own maps and game modes, and it’s back on the Master Chief Collection, and it's better than ever. Whilst players will be able to play Forge on the Halo 2 maps, they will also be given access to three different blank canvas maps that allow players to create to their heart's content.

    To make up for the lack of terrain on these empty levels, 343 have added a large range of natural scenery formations including flat pieces of ground, hills, trees and rocks, all of which can be used to create a nice base for a level.

    A lot of new features have been added to the new Forge on the Master Chief Collection as well, including buttons that can be used to open chosen doors, spawn vehicles and Forge objects, and do many other cool things.

    I expect the new button feature alone will open a lot of room for creativity. Halo The Master Chief Collection will release on the Xbox One on November 11th.

  • Rockstar Lists GTA V New Gen Returning Player Exclusives

    rockstar returning player exclusivesIf you have already purchased Grand Theft Auto V on either the Xbox 360 or the PlayStation 4, you are in for a treat - Rockstar have just announced a bunch of exclusive content that will only be available to those that have played GTA V on the Xbox 360 or PS3 in the past.

    The new content will range from new items to completely new events and rewards. Starting with events, returning players will be able to access random events across the game. On top of this, there will be a new 'Duke O' Death' vehicle, and the infamous Dodo seaplane will also be making a return.

    Players will also be given a brand new story mission to play through where they will take control of Michael as he follows a cryptic murder mystery.

    There will also be two new weapons for returning players - a high velocity rail gun, and an up close and personal hatchet melee weapon.

    Players will also be able to take part in a new animal photography challenge which will get players travelling the entire of Los Santos in the hopes to take snaps of the new wildlife added to the PS4 and the Xbox One.

    There will also be new muscle races and a bunch of new vehicles, all of which will be exclusive to returning players. I must admit, there is definitely a lot of content to encourage me to want to buy it on a new gen console.

  • Fallout 4 May Be Shown at VGX 2014

    fallout 4 vgxAh, the elusive Fallout 4. We keep hearing whispers and rumors about the game, but we never actually see anything official. If we are lucky, that may all be changing soon however, as it has been revealed by an insider that Fallout 4 may in fact be shown off for the first time at VGX 2014.

    That insider is Geoff Keighley, host of VGX. According to Keighley, some kind of new announcement is planned for VGX by Bethesda, and a cryptic tweet almost suggests that it will be Fallout 4.

    Of course, nothing is confirmed at this point - the reveal at VGX 2014 could be anything - Bethesda may decide to give another look into their new DOOM game, or they may have something completely else planned.

    However, if Bethesda were to announce Fallout 4, VGX would be a good place to do it. In the past, Bethesda have used VGX (or Spike TV) to make new game announcements, and in fact, The Elder Scrolls Skyrim was announced at VGX for the very first time at VGX 2010. The game then released a year later.

    If we do see Fallout 4 we will let you know - VGX 2014 will be happening on December 5th this year, so whatever Bethesda has planned, there’s just enough time to start getting excited about it.

    We would absolutely love to see a new Fallout game, but nothing is confirmed yet, so take this post with a healthily large grain of salt.

  • You Can Dress as a Zombie in Advanced Warfare

    zombie in advanced warfareIf you have been keeping an eye on Advanced Warfare, you are probably already aware that the game comes with a brand new zombies mode that offers players the ability to fight against waves after waves of the living dead.

    However, for the first time ever, players will (sort of) be able to play as a zombie by playing Advanced Warfare. Similar to the clothing system in Call of Duty Ghosts, players will be able to unlock cosmetic gear by completing certain goals.

    If you manage to do well in the new zombie mode, you may stand a chance of unlocking zombie cosmetic gear to wear in Multiplayer. There are four different pieces of zombie clothing, and to unlock the full outfit you will need to complete various tiers of zombie mode.

    "Survival mode in COD: AW has 4 tiers, 4 maps in the first 3 tiers, 1 map (Riot) in the last tier. To unlock the 2nd tier, you need to complete 50 rounds overall in the 1st tier, to unlock the 3rd tier, you need 75 rounds overall in 2nd tier, for the 4th and final tier, you need 100 rounds completed in the 3rd tier. You receive 2 pieces of zombie equipment for unlocking the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th tier.

    To get the final 2 pieces ('zombie top' and the zombie player head) you need to reach round 10 on Riot (the 4th tier) at which point a DNA bomb drops, and you then have to fend off a single wave of zombies for about 3 minutes before evacuating and getting shown that cut scene that leaked earlier. There is no 'zombies mode' or any extra reward for doing this. These are permanent items."

    Want help getting through these hordes of zombies? Check out Evil Controllers, they have the Master Mod which includes Rapid Fire, Quick Reload, and much more. These zombies won't stand a chance!
