  • Better Online Matchmaking Coming to Street Fighter V

    street fighter v matchmakingCapcom is looking to team up with Bandai Namco to improve the matchmaking experience for Street Fighter V players.

    Chances are, you may have noticed some network issues or latency with the Street Fighter V online servers. It's something that Capcom has acknowledged themselves, and they're actively looking to improve the situation.

    In fact, Capcom is trying so hard to improve their online experience that they're teaming up with a team that knows how to do online matchmaking right; Bandai Namco.

    The Tekken 7 matchmaking experience is far superior to what's offered in Street Fighter V, so the partnership between Bandai Namco and Capcom to improve the server performance in SF5 makes perfect sense.

    Interestingly, the statement released by Capcom seemed to suggest that Bandai Namco and Capcom would be working together on more than just matchmaking performance in the future. This looks like the start of a long, beneficial partnership for both parties. You can see the full statement below.

    "Capcom Co., Ltd. today announced that it has entered into a cross-licensing agreement with BANDAI NAMCO Entertainment Inc. related to online matching in properties such as the Street Fighter series.

    The purpose of this agreement is to improve the user experience while accelerating the production of titles and reducing development costs for both parties. Further, with this cross-license for online matching, Capcom aims to effectively utilize the patents it has been granted in game series such as Street Fighter in order to deliver even more exciting content to game players.

    With this agreement as a starting point, Capcom will continue to explore cross-licensing opportunities in order to safeguard its patents while improving the user experience and contributing to a healthier game industry."

    Are you looking forward to this Bandai Namco-Capcom partnership?

  • New ZeRo Smash Bros 4 Tier List

    zero smash bros tier list 2017After recent events, ZeRo has built a new tier list for Super Smash Bros 4. The list includes each of the SSMB4 characters, besides the Miis, and has listed each one based on their performance in competitive events.

    Whether you play competitively or simply want to know which characters to pick to give yourself a better chance at beating your friend when they come round to play, this new tier list is worth taking a look at.

    Before we share the entire Smash Bros 4 tier list, let's first take a look at the top 10 picks from ZeRo. The top ten characters in ZeRo's tier list have been showcased below:

    • 10: Mario
    • 9: MarchCina
    • 8: Fox
    • 7: Sonic
    • 6: ZSS
    • 5: Diddy Kong
    • 4: Sheik
    • 3: Rosalina
    • 2: Cloud
    • 1: Bayonetta

    Bayonetta was an interesting choice for number 1, especially considering that not a single Bayonetta player has won a major tournament with that character.

    As ZeRo is a Diddy Kong player himself, it's odd to see Diddy Kong so high up in the list. Many other tier lists would put Diddy Kong in the top 3, without a doubt.

    The rest of the choices for the top 10 in this tier list is something that the majority of the community can agree upon. The remaining 42 characters in this list are in-line with what the rest of the Smash bros 4 scene would say, too, although there are a few characters that should arguably be higher or lower.

    Check out the full list in the featured image above.

  • Dead by Daylight Released to Consoles

    dead by daylight consolesPerhaps after seeing the success of the Friday the 13th game, the Dead By Daylight developers have now pushed out their release for their game across PS4 and Xbox One.

    The new Dead By Daylight console launch is available exclusively as a digital download from either the Xbox Games Store or the PSN marketplace. The new console version has a number of achievements for Xbox One and trophies on PS4 for players to unlock.

    For those unaware, Dead By Daylight is a survival multiplayer game that gives players the chance to play as either one of the survivors or as the killer.

    When playing as the single killer, you must attempt to kill each of the survivors before they can escape. When playing as the survivors, you must team up with other players to either escape or take the killer down.

    There are a number of different killers available, some of which are based on real life serial killers or serial killers from pop culture. The killers available in the console release are the Trapper, the Wraith, the Hillbilly, the Nurse, the Shape, the Hag, and the Doctor.

    Just like with Friday the 13th the game, trying to win as the survivors is far more difficult than it would first seem, despite the fact that the survivors outnumber the Killer.

    This new wave of asymmetrical multiplayer games has certainly brought a breath of fresh air to the industry, so we're grateful to see Dead By Daylight available on Xbox One and the PS4.

    Dead By Daylight will initially be available for $29.99

  • Friday The 13th Getting Free DLC

    friday the 13th free dlcFollowing the poor server performance during the release month for the new Friday The 13th game, the developers have apologized by offering the first upcoming DLC release to all players for free.

    Gun Media wanted to thank their player base for the patience they have had with the server issues, and have mentioned that a previously planned paid DLC pack will now be pushed out to all players for free.

    The new DLC pack includes a retro style Jason and a new soundtrack created by Swedish electronic artist Mitch Murder to fit the retro style. Each of the counselors has new clothing items in the upcoming DLC pack too, and every player will be rewarded with 13,000 customization points.

    On top of the new content, Gun Media has revealed that they will be running a double XP event from June 23 to June 25.

    Gun Media revealed in their press release that they were surprised by the huge following Friday the 13th the game received during its launch month. "Overall, Gun Media is very thankful to our fans, supporters, and those interested in the game. We were completely overwhelmed by the amount of users that tried to play at launch, enough to break our servers and force us to upgrade. That process has evened out since then, however, we are still working to smooth out the experience even more across all three platforms."

    Have you played Friday the 13th yet? The new DLC lands on June 20 and the double XP event will follow next weekend, starting on June 23, so there's never been a better time to pick the game up

  • PS4 Destiny 2 Exclusives Will Come to Xbox in 2018

    PS4 Destiny 2 2018For those that don't know, the PlayStation 4 will be getting a number of timed exclusive items for Destiny 2.

    It's now been revealed that these exclusive items will only be limited to the PS4 for a year, before being released to both the Xbox One and the PC.

    Destiny 2's game director, Luke Smith, replied to a Tweet on Twitter which asked about the PS4 Destiny 2 exclusivity deal. Luke Smith mentioned that "Destiny 2's PlayStation-exclusive content will arrive on Xbox One and PC in 2018."

    An exact date for the end of the exclusivity deal wasn't given but it makes sense that it will follow exactly one year after the release of the content on the PS4.

    What Destiny 2 Exclusive Content Do PS4 Players Get?

    Those that purchase Destiny 2 on the PlayStation 4 will get a number of exclusive items to use for an entire year before the content is available for Xbox One and PC players.

    The main exclusive item for Destiny 2 PS4 players is the Lake of Shadows Strike - this is an entire Strike mission that'll remain on the PS4 exclusively until 2018. There will also be a Crucible multiplayer map for the PS4 called Retribution.

    PS4 players will also get access to the Borealis Exotic sniper rifle and the Apex ship.

    Destiny 2 is set to launch on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 6, 2017. The game was initially set to launch on September 8.

    The PC release of Destiny 2 will be available for PC players through the Battle.net client, starting on October 24.

  • E3: Destiny 2 Beta and PC Release Dates Announced

    destiny 2 beta dateThanks to Bungie's appearance at E3, we now have a confirmation on the upcoming beta and the release date for the PC version of Destiny 2.

    It has been confirmed that both the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 will have a beta for Destiny 2. The PlayStation 4 beta will start on July 18, while the Xbox One beta will start on July 19. A PC beta is also planned for sometime in August.

    Both platforms will have their beta end on July 23.

    July 18 is a Tuesday and July 23 is a Sunday, so PS4 players will have almost an entire week to test out Destiny 2 in the beta. It should be noted that the beta is exclusively for those that pre-order Destiny 2.

    In line with the good news about the beta, it's been confirmed that the Destiny 2 release date for consoles has been pushed forward to September 6. Previously the release date was September 8.

    The PC release date has also been confirmed - it is now set to launch on October 24.

    Earlier in the year, Destiny 2 was unveiled at a special event by Bungie - we already know quite a bit about the game. There's no doubt that fans of the Destiny franchise are getting quite excited right now.

    Are you going to be picking up Destiny 2? If so, what platform will be your first choice for the upcoming game from Bungie?

  • E3: Skyrim VR Is Coming to PlayStation 4

    skyrim vr e3Skyrim has already been released and re-released a million times already, but the latest addition to the PlayStation 4 should capture Elder Scrolls fans enough to bring them back to the game one final time.

    Skyrim VR was unveiled at the Sony E3 press conference. It has been confirmed as an exclusive title for the PlayStation 4 and will require the PlayStation VR kit to run. The game also supports PlayStation Move for hand gesture movement and control of the character's hands in Skyrim.

    So far, the release date was shared for Skyrim VR, and it wasn't made clear if Skyrim VR would remain an exclusive to Sony forever. Bethesda also unveiled Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR at E3, although they weren't announced at Sony's E3 event.

    The price tag has not been confirmed yet, either. We wouldn't be surprised if Bethesda put the Skyrim VR game up for sale as a standalone game, but now that there have been so many Skyrim versions for various consoles, it's only fair that Bethesda considers putting a reasonable price on it. We'd be surprised if many gamers would be willing to pay full price for Skyrim...again.

    What are your thoughts on Bethesda's entry into the world of virtual reality? Do you think their range of games will translate well into the VR field? If you've got a VR headset, would you consider buying Skyrim VR? If you don't have a VR headset, does the announcement of Skyrim VR make you want to pick a headset up?

  • Call of Duty WW2 Multiplayer Detailed

    call of duty ww2 multiplayerDetails for the multiplayer in the new Call of Duty WW2 have been spilled at this year's E3. We now have a gameplay trailer for the multiplayer aspect of WW2, and a confirmation on the date for the PS4 multiplayer beta.

    Firstly, the new multiplayer reveal trailer for Call of Duty WW2 has now gone live. The trailer features a number of noteworthy shots. Some of the environments players can expect to play in are seen. Locations include Normandy in France; the Ardennes Forest in Belgium, and Aachen in Germany.

    Some gameplay footage was also shown. Straight off the bat, it's clear that this is a Call of Duty game - but it certainly feels more in-line with the earlier Call of Duty titles. Those that played Call of Duty World at War will feel at home with Call of Duty WW2, that's for sure.

    While the game has a more gritty, realistic approach, it'll still have a number of trademark Call of Duty features, including a Zombies mode.

    In other news, the Call of Duty WW2 multiplayer beta now has a date. The multiplayer beta will begin on PlayStation 4 on August 25. We're not yet sure how long the beta will last, and we're not sure if there will be an Xbox One or PC beta. It is clear, however, that the beta is currently exclusive to those that preorder Call of Duty WW2 on the PS4.

    Are you looking forward to Call of Duty WW2? Let us know your thoughts by leaving a comment below.

  • E3: Intel and ESL Partner for eSports

    intel esl esports e3Intel and ESL have taken to the stage of E3 to announce their plans for partnership on bringing esports to a bigger crowd.

    ESL has long been one of the biggest players in the esports event industry, so it's clear that Intel is serious about making esports big with their new esports partnership.

    Some may not be aware, but Intel has also been in the esports game for a long time. The ESL and Intel partnership has also been ongoing for a good few years. The IEM (Intel Extreme Masters) esports event, for example, started back in 2007.

    IEM has always been an event co-hosted by Intel and ESL, so with this new partnership, you may be wondering what will actually come out of it that hasn't already been done in the past.

    Intel will essentially be the driving force of all Intel events going forth - Intel will be responsible for the operation of all PCs needed for eSports events, and Intel will also be in control of all live streaming events.

    Intel has also confirmed that a new event, called the Intel Grand Slam, will be coming to competitive Counter Strike. In the Grand Slam event, Intel is offering a bonus of $1 million for any team that wins 4 out of the 10 matches that are to be played.

    Finally, Intel is putting their chips on esports in VR - they have announced a VR Challenger League that'll support a competitive scene for the Echo Arena VR game.
