  • GTA Online Exploiters Being Blown to Pieces

    gta online duke o deathIn a new update to Grand Theft Auto Online, a certain exploit is causing abusers to blow up into a fiery explosion of shame and guilt. Whilst the exploit that this new update applies to isn't entirely game breaking, it's nice to see that Rockstar are stopping bug abusers in an out of the box fashion.

    When the new generation version of Grand Theft Auto 5 was released, the Duke 'O Death vehicle was added to the singleplayer of the game. The vehicle was however not added to the multiplayer version of the game. Many players have managed to find an exploit that allowed them to add the Duke O' Death to Grand Theft Auto Online and it allowed them to drive the car around freely and even use it in certain events and missions.

    Obviously this is not a very fair exploit as it allows players to get a very decent car without putting any effort in. Fortunately Rockstar have stopped exploiters in their traps, and whilst the exploit can still be performed, as soon as a player tries to enter the Duke O' Death the car will implode, killing the player on impact.

    I think it's awfully fitting to see the Duke O' Death cause so many player deaths in the latest update, and I'm glad that Rockstar took this humorous approach instead of punishing the players further. The bug exploit was unfair but it was no way near as serious as cheating can be. In the past, Rockstar had to spend a lot of their resources dealing with online hackers that would fill other player's inventories with billions of dollars of cash.

  • New Bloodborne 1.02 Patch Released

    new bloodborne patchA new patch for Bloodborne has been released and it fixes a number of issues and exploits found in the game. One of the biggest changes includes a fix to a well known duplication glitch that was spreading through the internet.

    The item duplication glitch allowed players to practically duplicate any item in their inventory, and many players started to use it to get infinite consumables and increase their in game wealth. Whilst this duplication method has been fixed it would not surprise me if other players manage to find another dupe method before From Software have the chance to fix it.

    Another very important fix in the 1.02 patch changes the way a certain mission plays out, which previously caused some issues, stopping players from progressing through the game. If you ever had trouble with the Lunarium Key in Bloodborne you will be happy to hear that all issues relating to the key have now been fixed.

    If your game was previously unable to make the key spawn, you will now be able to head into game and collect the key to continue with the game. Without the Lunarium Key, players cannot fight the boss within that area, and that will stop the player from being able to complete many other areas in the game following on from the boss fight.

    Whether or not you're frustrated with the item duplication fix, I think it's great to see the developers of Bloodborne working quickly on major game issues and bugs. Bloodborne has been incredibly successful since it's release, and millions of players have already purchased the game.

  • Star Wars: Battlefront Playtest Happening Next Week

    star wars battlefrontIt's exciting times indeed - EA has just announced that they will be hosting some player tests next week for the new Star Wars: Battlefront and anybody can sign up for the chance to play test the game. The sign up page is online but players will need to be in either Burnaby, British Columbia or Redwood City, CA for next Friday.

    Two studios will be hosting the playtest event, including EA Redwood Shores and EA Canada, and whilst there are two playtest events happening, EA has not disclosed how many play testers will be invited to the event.

    We are pretty sure that the number of play testers allowed will be very limited, so if you are interested in trying it and are in either Burnaby or Redwood City then we would definitely suggest signing up whilst you still can.

    Unfortunately, those who play test the game will need to sign a nondisclosure agreement so the public won't be seeing any gameplay just yet. This play test does show that the game is in some kind of playable state though, so hopefully we'll finally see some gameplay of Star Wars: Battlefront very, very soon.

    We already know that EA will be showing off a Star Wars Battlefront trailer on April 17 at the Star Wars celebration event, so we think it would be very suitable for them to finally show off some gameplay then.

    We’re very excited about Star Wars: Battlefront, are you?

  • Crazy Advanced Warfare Stats Revealed

    Sledgehammer Games has recently released a large infographic that contains a variety of information relating to player's accumalative stats in Advanced Warfare since the game has been released. In the infographic, details about player kills, weapon usage and grenade usage has been displayed. Other details give information about the exo zombie survival mode, whilst some stats share details on the various exo suit abilities.

    2,591,920,137, or roughly 2.5 billion exo zombies have been killed since the release of Advanced Warfare, and 223 million zombie waves have been cleared by players.

    Players have collected 1,397,836,776 supply drops, and over 2 billion items have been collected, with roughly 300 million of those being elite items.

    One of my favorite stats on the new info-graphic includes details about how far players have jumped with the new boost jumps in Advanced Warfare. Over 105 trillion jumps have been made by players online. Sledgehammer Games has stated that this is enough distance to cover the circumference of the earth 14 thousand times. Now that is a lot of boost jumping.

    Unfortunately the info-graphic did not give stats on player average kill ratios or any other information about player performance or weapon preference. The info-graphic did state that 24% of weapons used were assault rifles, 19% were SMGs, 16% were heavy weapons and just 13% were snipers.

    If you could learn any stats about Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, what kind of stats would you be interested to learn about? I personally think it would be great to see details about player performance and general weapon usage, instead of just weapon class usage.

  • Nadeshot Takes Break from Competitive Call of Duty

    nadeshot leaves call of dutyOne of the most well known competitive Call of Duty players is taking a break from the pro circuit, and he shall be stepping out of any competitive Advanced Warfare tournaments for the time being. Nadeshot, who has been on Optic gaming for a while now, has stated that his break is related to various personal choices in his life.

    Nadeshot is now a co-owner in Team Optic, and he believes that by stepping out of the pro circuit, he can focus on finding a more determined player to fill his spot. Nadeshot did mention that he would like to return to competitive Call of Duty, most likely after the next Call of Duty titles is released. However, for the time being, Nadeshot has revealed that he “Just needs some time to step back and pursue other things that he's passionate about."

    Nadeshot continued to talk about how his drive and passion just isn’t as strong as it needs to be. Even though Optic has won the past 3 out of 5 major tournaments, Nadeshot's mindset entering into these tournaments has been "to not lose" instead of "to win."

    It will be interesting to see if Optic can find a filler who is more passionate about the game than Nadeshot himself, and a lot of speculation has spread the internet around who a suitable replacement could be for Team Optic.

    We wish Nadeshot and Optic gaming the best of luck going forward. We’re interested to see how things evolve as Call of Duty Advanced Warfare nears it's end.

  • New Master Chief Collection Playlist Update

    Master Chief Collection April UpdateSome new playlist changes have gone ahead in anticipation for the launch of the April update for The Master Chief Collection. The playlist changes include the introduction of Team Doubles, as well as a few other changes across the board.

    Team Doubles is a pretty popular playlist that has been around since Halo 2, and it includes a variety of different game modes that can be played with 2 players on each team. The new Team Doubles playlist in The Master Chief Collection will include Halo 2 Classic, Halo 2 Anniversary, Halo 3 and Halo 4 maps.

    Other changes include small tweaks to team sizes. For example, Combat Evolved team games now have 2 players on each team, instead of 2-3 players. 343 Industries have also been clear about their playlist plans for the future. The development team has revealed that they would like to add more playlists that give players a battle rifle at the start of the game, and they've expressed their interest in more team objective style playlists.

    The new objective playlists are expected to include game types like Capture the Flag, King of the Hill, Territories and Assault. Whilst there is no planned date for the objective playlists, it would not be surprising to see it in the game before the end of April.

    343 Industries is also putting the final touches and testing into the April update for The Master Chief Collection. This month's update will focus on some big game improvements as well as a penalty system for quitting players.

  • Free PS Plus April Games Announced

    ps plus april gamesTwo games have been confirmed for the next PS Plus free games lineup, and the rest of the games will be revealed next week.

    Sony has been running the free PS Plus games promotion for a long time now, and there's always something to look forward to at the start of each month if you're a paying PS Plus subscriber. This month, the two games we know that are definitely coming to the platform are Woah Dave! and Dishonored.

    Woah Dave! is an arcade style platform puzzle game developed by Choice Provisions. Woah Dave! takes players on a galactic journey through space as the main protagonist, Dave, fights against aliens and other strange space oddities. Whilst Woah Dave! will be free at the beginning of April, Sony have mentioned that this game does not count towards the official free PS Plus game lineup.

    The other game, which most likely will be one of the six free PS Plus games in April is Dishonored, and this is a stealth action game by Bethesda that was released in 2012. Whilst some players have complained about the length of Dishonored, there's no doubt that it is a good game, and being able to get it for free is more than enough reason to give it a go.

    A lot of PlayStation owners have complained about the lack of quality in the most recent PS Plus free game lineups, but it must be mentioned that these games are free, and it's likely that Sony have to go through a reasonable amount of effort to sign a deal with the game developers and publishers before putting games up for free each month.

  • Gears of War 4 Gets Teased Mocap Image

    gears of war 4 mocap imageWe all know a new Gears of War game is coming, there's no doubt about it. It's one of the few franchises that really helped to serve the Xbox 360 a great deal of popularity, and many fans are ready to see a new Gears game.

    Whilst we haven't really had any full official details about Gears of War 4, we'll occasionally hear bits of information from developers working on the game, and that is exactly what happened this week.

    Whilst the Gears of War Marcus Fenix collection was unfortunately confirmed as a false rumor by Black Tusk's producer Rod Fergusson, he did mention that they may have something special to show us at E3 later this year.

    To follow on with that, Jack Felling a developer at Black Tusk Studios, shared an image on Twitter that had the caption "Last day of the shoot... One of the actors in a mocap suit! #MotionCapture #Props #MarkerBalls @GearsofWar"

    It's clear that Black Tusk have been working on a new Gears of War game, and the latest news suggesting that motion capture has been almost finished up is great to hear. E3 is only a few months away now, so hopefully we'll see some kind of official reveal once the gaming event is upon us. Until then we'll just have to be patient and hope that the developers at Black Tusk reveal some other information about the new Gears of War game.

  • Three New Tekken 7 Characters Announced

    new tekken 7 charactersAs part of a celebration on the 20th anniversary stream on Nico Nico, three more characters have been confirmed for Tekken 7, and they will be making their way into the game at various points throughout 2015.

    Two of the three characters are returning favorites, whilst one is a completely brand new character named Josie Rizal. Not much information has been shared about Josie, although it has been confirmed that her nationality is filipino. The release date for Josie Rizal has not yet been set, and Bandai Namco have simply stated that she will be added to the game "soon."

    For those that are aware of Filipino history, you'll know that the name Josie Rizal is way too similar to Jose Rizal for it to be a coincidence. Jose Rizal is considered a national hero in the Philippines and lived in the 1800s.

    The other two characters are two favorites that we all expected to see in Tekken 7 a lot sooner. The first is Jin Kazama, and the second is Devil Jin. Whilst Josie does not yet have a release date, Bandai Namco did announce on the live stream that standard Jin will be added to the game on March 31 as the first new character.

    One week later on April 7, Devil Jin will also be added to Tekken 7.

    I think it's great to see Jin being finally added to Tekken 7, and it's also quite interesting to see Bandai Namco adding a brand new character to the game as well.

  • Dragon Age DLC Coming to PS4

    dragon age dlc ps4Even though the Dragon Age: Inquisition Jaws of Hakkon DLC was released last week for Xbox One, BioWare has revealed details on when the DLC will be coming to other platforms, including the PlayStation 4.

    According to BioWare via Twitter, the Jaws of Hakkon DLC will be available for all other supported consoles sometime in May. This includes the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    The reason BioWare could not reveal details about the Jaws of Hakkon coming to other consoles earlier was because their exclusivity contract with Microsoft prevented them from doing so.

    In a Q&A session on Kotaku, BioWare's general manager, Aaryn Flynn revealed details about how the timed exclusivity deal works.

    "Jaws of Hakkon is a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and PC. This approach allowed for a lot of support from Microsoft and Origin in launching the DLC, so it did have that benefit for the team, and we appreciate the partnership," Aaryn mentioned. "However, as a timed exclusive, it is definitely coming to the game's other platforms, and based on our internal discussions I expect we'll be announcing more details next week."

    "I hope no one boycotts the purchase, as it's a pretty fun adventure that WILL be available on all platforms. That said, everyone is free to vote / message / communicate how they feel, so if that happens it happens. We're definitely paying attention."

    It's good to see that Jaws of Hakkon is coming to PlayStation and the Xbox 360, but it's understandable to see why some gamers are frustrated by timed exclusivity deals like this.
