  • 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!

  • Destiny The Dark Below is $20

    destiny the dark belowDestiny The Dark Below is the first DLC planned for Bungie's latest title, and there has been a bit of controversy surrounding the expansion pack. Whilst DLC has now been pretty much accepted as a common practice by video game developers, they are usually at only a portion of the price of the full game.

    Destiny the Dark Below has been set at $20, which is around a third of the full game price. To make things even worse, the same DLC has been put up for £20 in the UK, which is more than $30.

    So, what exactly do you get out of Destiny The Dark Below, and is it worth paying one third to one half of the original game price for it?

    In Destiny The Dark Below, players will be given access to three new story missions, two new strikes, one of which will be limited to PlayStation 4 will Fall 2015, and a new raid called Crota's End.

    Finally, Destiny The Dark Below will include three new Crucible maps called Pantheon, Skyshock and The Cauldron - the game should also get some new weapon and equipment times in the DLC.

    Honestly, this doesn't seem like $20-$30 worth of content, so it will be interesting to see how many people opt to buy the upcoming Destiny expansion.

    So far, Destiny has been incredibly successful, so it's odd that Bungie are pricing their DLC content at such a high price.

  • GTA San Andreas HD Now on Xbox 360

    gta san andreas hdGot any change to spare? If you have, you may want to boot up your Xbox 360 and head to the Xbox Games Store. Want to know why? Right now you will be able to find GTA: San Andreas for just a few bucks.

    The game has debuted on the Xbox 360 this week, and it comes with a range of improvements to make the game slightly better than the original.

    Firstly, the new GTA San Andreas HD has had a resolution increase, and the game now plays at 720P. Whilst it seems that Rockstar have simply upscaled the original textures, it's nice to see that the game will run smoothly on the Xbox 360 at a 720P HD resolution.

    On top of upscaling the resolution, Rockstar have also increased the in-game draw distances, which will allow players to see more area of the map at once whilst playing.

    Finally, with the debut to Xbox 360, Rockstar have added a bunch of achievements for the game that can be unlocked by playing through the story.

    The new GTA Sand Andreas HD can be picked up for just $3.74 in North America, and £2.99 in the UK. If you haven't played San Andreas before, we think that there's no reason not to pick up this game.

    The game was recently released on iPhone and Android, but it's lack of a decent control scheme easily make it a second pick when compared to the brand new HD version for Xbox 360.

  • Cod Ghosts and Black Ops 2 Huge Double XP Promotion

    cod ghosts double xpAlthough Call of Duty Advanced Warfare is just around the corner, COD developers Infinity Ward and Treyarch have put up a brand new promotion for both of their latest games, Call of Duty Ghosts and Call of Duty Black Ops 2.

    If you play either of these games, you may want to start playing before Halloween as both of these games will be receiving double XP, starting from now, all the way up til the end of Halloween.

    For COD fans, I think this would be the perfect sprint towards the release of Advanced Warfare, which is set to land on the first week of November.

    The double XP promotion will double all experience earned from all game modes within the game, so if you want to finish up your prestiging or need to get some more squad points, we would definitely suggest you to consider playing this week.

    When Advanced Warfare launches, there will also be a short early access double XP period that will allow players to gain XP a day before the full launch date.

    This is probably the best week this year to start up a Call of Duty marathon - are you still playing either Call of Duty Ghosts or Black Ops 2, and will you make use of the double XP bonuses this week?

    And finally, will you make use of the early access Double XP from Advanced Warfare, or are you not convinced it is worth pre-ordering to get access to the extra experience?
