  • Mang0 Takes SSBM Big House 6 Win

    mang0-ssbm

    If you've followed the Smash Brothers scene then you'll know that Mang0 has been a big player for a long time. It's no surprise that he has managed to capture a win in SSBM at Big House 6 this year.

    Mang0, still under the Cloud 9 organization, hasn't had the best of results this first half, but it looks as if his performance at the older part of 2016 is seeing more success for him. The Big House 6 event saw some of the greatest Melee players make it participate. As a result, there were a lot of close matchups that Mang0 narrowly won.

    Mang0 first when undefeated against Nintendude, The Moon, Ice and then put himself to the test against Armada and took the win 3-2 in the winner's semifinals. At this point, Armada dropped down to the loser's bracket.

    Following Armada's story after his drop to the losers, Armada managed to take a win against the infamous Hungrybox and Mew2King to take his win in the loser's finals. Mang0 on the other hand hastily won the winner's finals to see a Armada versus Mang0 rematch in the grand finale.

    Armada had a pretty stunning performance at the beginning, stealing the first set of three from Mang0 without much hesitation. That wasn't enough, though. Because Mang0 had already beaten Armada earlier in the tournament and knocked him down into the loser's brackets, Armada needed to win two best of three series.

    Fortunately for Mang0, the Cloud 9 player managed to pull back and take the second series from Armada in a close 3-2 battle. After Mang0s down period, he has managed to pull back and secure the Big House 6 win as his third first place tournament finish this year.

  • NuckleDu wins Fall Classic

    nuckledu-fall-classic

    Even though NuckleDu fell into the loser's bracket at Fall Classic 2016, he managed to retain his playstyle and push him back into the grand finals and take a convincing victory.

    Not only did NuckleDu take the grand final win, but he did so in the most convincing way possible with a double 3-0 finish. NuckleDu didn't have the easiest time getting to the grand finals, though, with some of his previous matchups being more of an interesting watch than the finals itself.

    For example, NuckleDu lost against the infamous Rashid player Takeuchi "John Takeuchi" Ryouta. Despite the lack of good Rashid players, Takeuchi has come out of nowhere to take plenty of wins this year so far. Unfortunately, Takeuchi also lost out in a winners bracket match.

    NuckleDu churned his way through the loser's bracket, fighting and winning against Raynel "RayRay" Hidalgo, Ricki Ortiz and Ludovic Mbock. Finally, NuckleDu's last challenge before the grand finals was against Takeuchi again in the loser's finals.

    This time, NuckleDu came back with an undefeated look on his face, but Takeuchi still put up a fight. The loser's finals game ended with a 3-2 scoreline going in favor of NuckleDu.

    After this, the quick, clean grand finals finish saw NuckleDu beat XsK_Samura 3-0 twice in a row. It would have been nicer to see a more challenging matchup in the grand finals of Fall Classic but this type of tournament bracket can sometimes lead to lesser skilled players making it to the winner's finals if any upsets happen early on.

  • Dishonored 2 Details Shared

    dishonored-2-details

    Bethesda has finally spilled the beans on the Dishonored storyline and we've got plenty of juicy details to share with you about the upcoming game.

    First off, let's start with some of the story details we now have. It's been confirmed that Dishonored 2 takes place roughly 15 years after the original game. The Lord Regent may have been taken care of, but the throne has now been taken by an otherworldly creature.

    Players must travel through the streets to restore the throne to its rightful owner, Emily Kaldwin. You'll obviously be equipped with all sorts of supernatural abilities, which will certainly make completing your missions far easier.

    Now for some details on the actual gameplay. This time, players will have the choice between playing as Emily Kaldwin or Corvo Attano. It seems, though, that either way players will have the same storyline to follow for the most part. The gameplay experience for both characters will differ, massively. Both characters have their own set of abilities or gadgets and players will have more choice over whether to go for the sneaker, assassin style gameplay or the brutal, action-packed combat style.

    There will be a lot more room for creativity when it comes to taking down enemies, too. No matter which character the player chooses, the options to choose from in each mission should hopefully be limited only by the player's imagination.

    Dishonored 2 will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC in November.

  • Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience Teased

    metal-gear-solid-v-definitive-experience

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience was revealed back at the end of August, but we have now received a teaser trailer that shares more information on the upcoming collection.

    The definitive experience is slated to release next week and the new teaser trailer is hyping us up for the release.

    Unfortunately, the content of Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Experience won't be that exciting for those that have already played the game. The collection will include the full version of The Phantom Pain, alongside the full version of Ground Zeroes, and some additional content thrown in here and there.

    The additional content includes the two Deja Vu and Jamais Vu missions which were previously exclusive to the console versions. Definitive Experience owners will also get access to some new weapons and costumes for use in The Phantom Pain. If you pick up the Definitive Edition, you'll also get to play the Cloaked In Silence expansion and use the various Appeal Packs that were released for Metal Gear Online.

    If you've not played Metal Gear Solid V before then the Definitive Experience may take your fancy. Currently the Definitive Experience is slated for release on October 11th for North America and October 14th for Europe. The price tag for Metal Gear Solid V: The Definitive Edition will go for $49.99 in North America and 34.99 in the UK. European prices are sitting at 39.99 euros.

    Would you consider picking up the Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive Edition?

  • Halo Reach Gets Backwards Compatibility Patch

    halo-reach-backwards-compatibility

    Backwards compatibility on the Xbox One is a big thing for some gamers, but it doesn't come with its own little hiccups. Halo Reach has been available on the Xbox One via the backwards compatibility feature for a while now, but the performance for the game has been terrible.

    Until now, players have struggled to play Halo Reach on the Xbox One without having juttery frames, freezes and crashes. Thankfully a brand new patch has been released for Halo Reach that has been designed to fix all the performance issues entirely.

    The new update has been confirmed to help with frame rate on Halo Reach and from early tests it seems as if the game is now running as smooth as ever. Not only is Halo Reach on the Xbox One now working smoothly, but in some cases it has a higher frame rate than the original Xbox 360 version.

    Now that we know that patches like this are possible for backwards compatible games, we wonder whether it'd ever be possible for a developer to revive a once-popular Xbox 360 title with new content and additional content updates.

    Backwards compatibility for the Xbox One has grown massively over the past few months and the backwards compatible game library is now filled with over 100 titles. A lot of the BC titles are some of the most popular Xbox 360 games, too. Give it a few months and anybody still clinging onto their Xbox 360 may find that they can finally upgrade without losing out on any of their favorite games.

  • Capcom Cup Finals Happening in Anaheim, CA

    capcom-cup-finals-anaheim

    Like previous years, Capcom has teamed up with Sony to provide the Capcom Cup Finals alongside the PlayStation Experience event. This year, the location has changed once again and players will find themselves travelling to Anaheim, CA to take part in the Capcom Cup.

    The PlayStation Experience will be held on December 3rd and 4th at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California. The Capcom Cup finals will be held on December 3rd at 6PM PST.

    During the Capcom Cup finals, the event should be streamed live on Twitch and the finalists will have their chance to play for the biggest part of a large $250,000+ prize pool. The initial prize pool is being increased by crowdfunding from one of Capcom’s Street Fighter V DLC packs. So far, we're looking at a total of $400,000 for the entire event.

    Some of the DLC money is also going on production so hopefully we'll have a great show on our hands once the event comes rolling by on December 3rd.

    The top 32 players will be playing on December 2nd, and after the 2nd of December, the remaining eight players will be given their invitations to head to Anaheim for the Capcom Cup finals.

    Who are you rooting for this year? We've seen a lot of changes in this year's Street Fighter eSports scene. Perhaps the most interesting story was that of John Takeuchi, who has taken Rashid and absolutely dominated with him.

  • Steve Aoki Owns an eSports Team

    steve-aoki-rogue-esports

    Steve Aoki, the famous DJ, has announced that he now owns an eSports team. It's becoming more popular for adults with a large amount of wealth behind them to put funding into an eSports team. We've seen it with NBA star Shaq, Rick Fox and NFL players too.

    Now, we're seeing the first DJ get in on the eSports action. Steve Aoki has put funding into the eSports organization called Rogue. The Rogue organization currently has a team in Overwatch that has seen recent success and a fairly new CS:GO lineup.

    Steve Aoki has mentioned that he has a huge life-long passion for gaming, so this new part ownership of Rogue eSports makes sense.

    "During his performance at TwitchCon Party 2016 on Saturday, STEVE AOKI announced his ownership in the Las Vegas eSports organization, ROGUE. Having been a life-long gamer, STEVE AOKI became determined to build an eSports team after his experience at PAX East in April of this year, where he was invited to participate in a Street Fighter V exhibition match."

    The current CEO of Rogue has made the following statement, "Our organization was expanding to the point where we wanted to bring on another partner. We couldn't be happier that we met Steve when we did. His genuine passion for the eSports scene was exactly what we were looking for."

    With more support, the Rogue team may now have the time to improve together and we may soon see the results pay off in Overwatch, Counter Strike: Global Offensive and any other games that the Rogue organization may decide to pick up a team for.

  • The Division Gets Public Test Servers

    division-public-test-servers

    After what felt like an eternity, The Division is finally getting public test servers. This means that new experimental updates will be tested before they are pushed out to live servers.

    With public test servers, players get two benefits. Firstly, players can experience new content before it's ready by visiting the public test servers. Secondly, the developers for The Division can monitor feedback from players on the public test servers so that all bugs and issues are ironed out before a new patch goes live.

    Public test servers should hopefully improve the overall quality of each patch massively. Not only can the test servers be useful for spotting bugs before they hit live servers, but they can be incredibly useful for testing new balancing changes or new weapons.

    To begin with, the Ubisoft developers will be working on bringing the upcoming 1.4 update planned for October to the public test servers. Players who'd like to join the servers will need to install a public test version of the game. Once in the test server, players will be given a level 30 character with purple tier gear. This is because Ubisoft is focusing the first days of testing on 'Progression between World Tiers.' When you go back to the normal game, you'll continue playing with your original characters and the level 30 character will remain on the test servers.

    The public test servers will remain open until update 1.4 is ready to hit live servers. At this point the test servers will go offline until Ubisoft need more player feedback for future updates.

  • GTA Online Biker Gang Update Coming in October

    gta-online-biker-gang

    A brand new GTA Online update is planned to hit in October and it'll feature some new biker themed content. The new Biker Gang update will hit on October 4.

    Rockstar wrote, "The next addition to GTA Online - brings underground Motorcycle Clubs to the forefront of the Los Santos and Blaine County criminal underworld with a rash of all new competitive and co-operative gameplay as well as new modes, vehicles, weapons, clothing and much more. GTA Online: Bikers arrives on October 4th as an automatic update to GTA Online on PS4, Xbox One and PC."

    One of the new additions to GTA Online: Bikers will allow players to use melee weapons whilst riding a bike. If another biker gets too close, a quick shank will surely put them off.

    Players can also do objectives to earn the respect of the biker gang president. By doing objectives, players will rise up the ranks and new rewards will be made available.

    A new vehicle, called the Western Rat Bike, will be added to the game, and a number of new cosmetic items will be thrown into the mix. The biggest features for the upcoming Biker update are related to new modes and missions though. Hopefully we'll find out exactly what kind of missions and modes will be coming on October 4.

    When the update arrives, it'll automatically be updated to your platform, regardless of whether you're playing on PC, PS4 or Xbox One.
