  • Play as Mortal Kombat's Scorpion on Injustice June 11

    Injustice: Gods Among Us has a new DLC pack planned that will allow players to play as Scorpion from Mortal Kombat.

    The character is represented in a way that fits in with the Injustice game, making Scorpion look right at home alongside the villains and heroes of Injustice: Gods Among us.

    The DLC pack will cost $4.99 on the PlayStation Network and 400 Microsoft Points on the Xbox 360.

    This won't be the first time Scorpion has been matched up against DC Comic super heroes and villains, the first time being in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe in 2008.

    As the Injustice game doesn't particularly stick to any lore of the DC world, I think seeing Scorpion in the game is a nice, fun addition, and I'm hoping he'll be a valuable player to play with.

    The Scorpion Download Content pack will be available from June 11th on wards for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, and should be available for Wii U sometime later in the summer.

  • EDGE Magazine Gives the Last of Us a Solid 10/10, We Certainly Have a Treat Incoming

    So far, the Last of Us has looked like a promising game, a very promising game.

    Over the past week or two we've had scores coming in from various professional sources, and so far reviews have been stellar.

    EDGE Magazine has recently given their score as well, rating Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us a solid 10 out of 10, making it the 15th game to ever be scored a full 10 from EDGE.

    OPM UK Magazine also gave Naughty Dog a 10/10 for The Last of Us, stating that the game is "A work of art in which amazing sights and sounds fuel an emotionally draining, constantly compelling end of days adventure. This is Naughty Dog pushing the PS3 to its limit. Over to your PS4."

    With Tomb Raider, Bioshock: Infinite and now the Last of Us, it's certainly been a successful year from some of our favorite games and developers, and we can only hope the same will continue through the year till the release of GTA V, a game that is almost guaranteed to score highly in reviews.

    What is your favorite game so far this year?

  • State of Decay now Available on XBLA

    You would have thought that after titles like The Walking Dead, Black Ops 2, Day Z, Resident Evil, and many, many, many more, we'd end up getting a bit bored of the whole zombie genre. And whilst we have received so many titles to blunt the sharp exciting concept of a zombie apocalypse into nothing more than a dull, flat surface, we're still getting thrown more zombie games.

    Even more surprisingly though, the newest addition the zombie genre, State of Decay, is an incredibly enjoyable game that gets you scavenging for supplies and building a place of safety for those you find on the road as you discover more about the sudden zombie apocalypse.

    The story is filled with plots we've all seen before a hundred times, and the characters don't really shine out enough to make their appearance meaningful, but the gameplay itself is enjoyable.

    If Grand Theft Auto was ever run over by Zombies, I think the end result would be this- It's an enjoyable game, and unlike most titles, can be picked up for pretty cheap 1600 Microsoft Points.

    It is currently exclusive to Microsoft, but a PC version is in the works too.

  • E3 Press Release - One Last Look at a Fan-Made Concept art

    Whilst the Sony E3 press release, a place where we'll see the PlayStation 4 in all its glory for the first time is only just later today, we thought it'd be worth looking at a fan made concept design of the PlayStation 4. The Reddit user took lots of screens of the teaser video to help piece together what he thinks the PlayStation 4 may end up looking like.

    The Reddit user went onto describing his design, saying that "I rendered these a few weeks ago but didn't have the time to post these until now. Was finishing my bachelor in Graphic Design."

    The Reddit user got inspiration from Albino-Zebra's rendering and decided to have a shot at himself for the PlayStation 4.

    He then took inspiration from other renders and the teaser video to make his own, using plenty of ideas to fuel his imagination.

    Overall, the design looks like a more squared out version of the PlayStation 3, with a nice strip of cobalt blue going through the middle of the design.

    The end result can be seen on the Reddit page shown within the image.

  • Pachter: PlayStation 4 to sell for $349, Xbox One $399

    Whilst you should always take an analyst's word with a pinch of salt, their estimates on prices are usually well thought out. Investment firm Wedbush Morgan has made some comments on the pricing and production costs of both next-gen consoles, with Michael Pachter, analyst for the company, stating that the PlayStation 4 will retail in the United States for $349.

    He also stated that the Xbox One could retail for $399, and that production costs for each individual Xbox is $325. The PlayStation 4 is also similarly priced with a production cost of $275.

    If these stats are true, there's no denying that these prices are quite fair on the customer considering the high production costs, however, Michael Pachter has been wrong in the past, like many analysts.

    Pachter also talked about possible subscription methods for the Xbox. This would make sense - Microsoft has already tried such plans for the Xbox 360 in the US.

    "We believe the ability to watch live TV from a cable, telco, or satellite set-top box through Xbox One could entice an MSO to drive subscriptions through a subsidized box in exchange for a multi-year contract. The 'always connected' requirement for the Xbox One likely means that a broadband connection will be required, suggesting to us that ISPs may have an incentive to offer a subsidy as well.

    "In addition, Microsoft could conceivably subsidize the Xbox One through prepaid Xbox Live Gold subscriptions (as it has done on a limited basis in the past) or premium Skype functionality as well. Similarly, Sony could subsidize the PS4 through prepaid PlayStation Network subscriptions, but unlike Microsoft, it does not have a history of doing so," Pachter stated.

    Would you prefer to buy a console outright or have the opportunity to spend bit-by-bit each month, similarly to a smartphone contract?

  • Black Ops 2 GOTY Edition

    Usually a game of the year edition ends up being something special for those players who've decided to wait a while to get their hands on a game. Take the Oblivion game-of-the-year for example; after releasing the game and bringing out a huge amount of DLC for the title, bundling it up into one easily playable package that was somewhat cheaper than buying it all separately was a great idea both for Bethesda and the players.

    However, in the case of Black Ops 2, it'd take a bit more than just DLC to make it special seeing as the only DLC at the moment is Revolution. But, as it turns out, all that is actually coming in the GOTY edition of Black Ops 2 is the game and the one DLC. What's more is the price is at $60. This seems a little odd when you can get your hand on the game for around $40, and then buy the $15 DLC pack separately, saving yourself a much needed 5 dollars.

    To make it more enticing, Activision could have added the season pass to the bundle, but without it, it seems like you might be better off doing a bargain hunt.

    The package is coming May 29th.

  • Despite Controversy, Xbox One is incredibly popular

    You may be wondering how we could make such a claim before the new Xbox console is even out, and with gamers shouting the walls of the internet down with their rage-filled cries of shock at the new Xbox, it would sound like a crazy claim to even think about making. However, Microsoft must be on the right track despite what many have been thinking.

    Blockbuster has recently reported that the Xbox One has received more preorders than any other preorder in the history of Blockbuster (around 24 years). What this says at face value; many families and gamers alike seem to dig the home-media combo that is the Xbox One, and two, the Xbox One now caters for what the average consumer feels the need to have in their household.

    If the Xbox One was released ten years, ago, I doubt it would reach this many pre-orders, but as we become more and more connected, Microsoft's direction with the Xbox One does actually make sense.

    Perhaps the console isn't as game-centric as the Xbox 360 was in its early days, but the console will still have games, and on top of that, enough media to keep you spending any more money on TV boxes, music players and other living room electronics. (unless you already have all those features of course.)

  • No DRM On PlayStation 4?

    With news from Microsoft about the whole used games fiasco, there's no doubt that we're all a little worried that Sony will take a similar route with the PlayStation 4. Many gamers and PlayStation fans took to twitter to hash tag the phrase #PS4NoDRM, which stands for PlayStation 4 no Digital Rights Management.

    As you can guess, many gamers do not want Sony to make any more restrictions on the way we play games, especially when it comes to selling, buying and trading used video games.

    So far we haven't got a straight-up answer from Sony about the issue, but instead, we have the president of Sony, Shuhei Yoshida, trolling everybody involved.

    How did he do this? With this tweet-

    "Death Ray Manta" coming to PlayStation Vita! #DRMPSVita http://www.inquisitr.com/678568/death-ray-manta-blasting-its-way-to-playstation-vita/

    Whilst this doesn't straight up guarantee the fact that DRM won't be as big of an issue as it is on the Xbox One, it wouldn't look good for Sony if they did release a similar used games policy on their PlayStation 4 after Yoshida posted this.

    What rules the PlayStation 4 will have are unknown, but it's pretty likely it won't be as restrictive as the Xbox One.

  • Minecraft's Notch Gets Invited to E3 by Sony

    Minecraft managed to land a huge amount of sales on the Xbox platform, but since then, talk of moving the popular game to PlayStation has been pretty quiet. However, Sony has very recently sent Notch, the main developer of Minecraft, a golden PSOne as 'special VIP pass' to E3. On top of this, Notch also got sent a copy of Dungeon Master 2 to play on the console.

    Could this mean anything past the fact that Sony want Notch to come and view them reveal more information about the PlayStation 4? - Probably very likely. But what could the reason be for Notch's VIP pass? The first thing that comes to mind is that Minecraft will be revealed for the PlayStation, but whether that's for PlayStation 4 or PlayStation 3 is currently unknown.

    It would make sense that Minecraft was put out for both platforms as it would allow players to play Minecraft whether they are on the new console or the old one.

    Another possibility is that Notch may be teaming up with Sony to bring out a new game by Mojang studios.

    Would you prefer to play Minecraft on the PlayStation or have a completely brand new game by Notch and Mojang instead?

  • Xbox One Will "Kill Sony at E3"

    The above words aren't my own, but are instead the words of Craig Davidson, the head of global marketing at Microsoft. He believes that at this year's E3, Microsoft will put up a show capable of kicking Sony and their PlayStation 4 in the dust...already.

    However, after Microsoft disappointed gamers by revealing a huge amount of sports, sports, sports and TV on the Xbox One, there is no doubt that many gamers are looking to the PlayStation 4 instead.

    Perhaps Microsoft can woo the crowd at E3, but with the non-gaming related media content, pay-to-play second hand gaming, worse hardware than the PS4 and bundled Kinect 2.0 sensor that will only raise the cost of the overall price, Microsoft have dug themselves a hole that's going to be very hard to get out of.

    There's no doubt that both Sony and Microsoft will be trying to get the most attention at E3, but to be honest, right now it's much too hard to work out who will come out on top at the end of this year, if anyone.

    What console do you think you'll prefer? The Xbox One or PlayStation 4?
