  • Titanfall Attends PlayStation Conference

    titanfall 2 ps4]If we go back a year to the release of Titanfall, you may remember all of the frustration over the Titanfall Xbox One exclusivity deal. Because of the huge amount of hype behind the game, Respawn Entertainment managed to sell quite a few Xbox's for Microsoft, but despite this, rumors kept spreading that Titanfall 2, a game that is definitely in the works, will not be an Xbox exclusive, despite the status of it's predecessor.

    Of course, at the time there was no proof that Titanfall 2 would be available for any console other than those owned by Microsoft, but shortly after Respawn did mention that they would not have to be locked down to Microsoft's system with their next games. This instantly made many people believe that Titanfall 2 was headed for cross-platform, and there wasn't much to deny it.

    To further cement the rumors that Respawn Entertainment will be ending their exclusivity deal for Titanfall, recently the Respawn developers were spotted at the PlayStation conference, an event that was held to celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the console line.

    It would be odd to think that a third party Xbox exclusive development studio had reason to be at the conference unless they were in talks with Sony to bring Titanfall 2 to the PlayStation 4.

    Personally, I think Titanfall 2 will come to the PS4, but I doubt the game will be made exclusive to Sony's system, despite certain rumors. I think that the Titanfall franchise will remain cross-platform going forward, and any attempts to make it exclusive by either side of the console war will most likely be ridiculed by the gaming community.

  • Red Dead Redemption Sequel Planned for PS4 and Xbox One

    red dead redemption sequelHurrah! Rockstar Games have finally opened up their doors to reveal their plans for their next upcoming game, and it will be Red Dead Redemption 2. We have been expecting a sequel for Red Dead for a while now, but Rockstar have been pretty quiet about it.

    However, recent rumors suggest that Rockstar Games are working hard to release Red Dead Redemption 2. The game will be available for the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, and it will take the best elements from the original game and bring it into a new story.

    Whilst Rockstar have not responded to the recent rumors, an insider has suggested that the new Red Dead Redemption 2 will be released at some point in 2015, and it will take a focus on co-op play.

    Whilst the original Red Dead Redemption did have some multiplayer elements, this was solely a different experience to the main game, so it will be interesting to see where the co-operative parts of Red Dead Redemption 2 will come in.

    Whether Rockstar will make it so that the game gives players more story content for co-operative players, or they choose to make it entirely a co-operative experience, we do not know, but we are very excited to see what will come from Red Dead Redemption 2.

    Hopefully we will hear more about the game in the near future. If the game is set for a release at some point in 2015, we are bound to get an official reveal fairly soon.

  • Sony Pays Homage to Crash Bandicoot in Odd Tweet

    Crash BandicootDespite being a very popular franchise for the original two PlayStation consoles, Sony has failed to mention anything about the future of Crash Bandicoot for a very long time. No news of development on new Crash Bandicoot games has been revealed by Sony, and many fans have presumed that the franchise is now dead.

    Whatever the truth may be, we don't know - all we can do is speculate. One rumor is that Crash Bandicoot has some trademark problems, and Sony doesn't actually own all of the rights to the game, which basically means they cannot get away with releasing a new Crash Bandicoot, even if they wanted to.

    Others suggest that development for Crash Bandicoot has simply been dropped by Sony following the last few games that did not sell very well on the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.

    Either way, Sony has recently posted an image on their Twitter that pays homage to the franchise, and many gamers have jumped to the conclusion that Sony might just be planning a Crash Bandicoot comeback, and the Tweet, which is the first time Sony has publically mentioned Crash in a long time, is a small teaser for what is to come.

    Whether that is true or not, I cannot say, but I'm sure many PS4 owners out there would be incredibly excited to get their hands on a new Crash Bandicoot game. However, with the large amount of PlayStation exclusives currently lined up for release, it may be a while before a new Crash Bandicoot pops up on Sony's radar.

  • Street Fighter 5 Revealed as PS4 Exclusive

    Street Fighter 5Out of nowhere, Capcom has confirmed that Street Fighter 5 is in the works, but the most surprising bit of news from Capcom's announcement was it's decision to make Street Fighter 5 an exclusive for the PlayStation 4.

    The Street Fighter franchise has always been available on both Xbox and PlayStation, so it is odd to see Capcom suddenly move over to PlayStation 4 only. The only thing we can think of is Sony have managed to offer Capcom a payout they couldn't turn down, and as a result the game has been given PS4 exclusivity.

    Interestingly, Street Fighter 5 will also be made available for the PC, but it's console exclusivity remains on the PlayStation 4.

    A full gameplay reveal trailer for Street Fighter 5 was released by Capcom, but it has since been set to private - perhaps the development company and publisher isn't quite ready to reveal the game to the world just yet.

    Either way, we can expect to see some real gameplay of Street Fighter 5 fairly shortly, and perhaps in a year or two, we’ll also see the game land on the PlayStation 4 and the PC.

    Are you frustrated that Street Fighter 5 has been made exclusive to the PlayStation 4 and the PC, or is it something you could live with? Personally, we think this kind of deal will only fuel more third part exclusivity deals in the future, further pushing away from the boundaries of console parity.

  • Lizard Squad Set For Ruining A Happy Xbox Christmas

    Lizard SquadIf you weren't accustomed to the name already, Lizard Squad is the title given to a group of online hackers that have spent their time bringing down online services for big corporations, and in the past they have managed to attack Sony, League of Legends and many other companies, typically related to the video game industry.

    They have now set their sights on an even bigger challenge, and it is actually quite scary, considering the damage they have done in the past. Lizard Squad took to Twitter earlier this month to announce that the plan to bring down Xbox Live on December 25th, and they hope to keep it down forever.

    The tweet stated, "This is not a threat, but a promise. On Christmas we will tap in to Microsoft and shut down Xbox Live, forever!"

    Obviously, Microsoft are taking the issue very seriously, and I'm sure they will do their best to ensure server performance is as good as possible leading up to Christmas. Microsoft did issue a warning that increased traffic may cause Xbox Live servers to be a little slower than normal on Christmas day, but other than this, no mention has been given about the potential loss of service from Lizard Squad.

    Honestly, I don't think Microsoft has too much to worry about, and there's no way Lizard Squad would be able to bring down their servers forever, if at all. We'll just have to wait for Christmas day to see exactly what happens.

  • The Crew will Release with No Game-Breaking Bugs, Before Reviews

    the crew launch bugsAfter the controversy behind Assassins' Creed Unity, it's no surprise that many gamers are starting to worry about any games released by Ubisoft at this point, and it seems to have scared many people away from buying into the Crew, a new upcoming new gen racing game.

    Whilst the Crew has been in development for a long time and has even been pushed back so that Ubisoft can polish the quality of it, many people are still worried about any bugs that may be preset at launch.

    Ubisoft on the other hand seem pretty confident that there is nothing to worry about, and they have even mentioned that the Crew will be launched without any game-breaking bugs. This seems to be majorly down to the open beta stages of the Crew, something that Assassin's Creed Unity did not have.

    "For The Crew, we've reaped the benefits of a long term beta program, designed specifically to push our infrastructure as far as possible in real world situations, with thousands of players from all over the world playing the game at the same time."

    Interestingly, Ubisoft will not be giving any early copies of the Crew out to reviewers, so we will have no inside feedback about the game until after it has launched. This will mean that players will not have any critic reviews to go on when making a purchasing decision, so those that are worried about the quality of the game may want to wait a couple of days before diving in.

  • Halo 5 Multiplayer - 15 Minutes of Gameplay Released

    halo 5 multiplayer gameplayAlthough the Master Chief Collection has been filled with issues at launch, the new Halo 5: Guardians is still being worked on by 343 Industries, and they are getting ever closer to releasing the game.

    Whilst for most of the development process 343 have been pretty quiet about Halo 5, we have seen an influx of new content recently, and just this week 343 released yet another gameplay video, showcasing the new multiplayer in action.

    This time round, the gameplay lasts for 15 minutes and it shows off two full games of slayer. The first map is played on Empire, a map we have already seen in previous videos, whilst the second map is Crossfire, one that some of you may not have yet seen.

    As always, Halo 5 is looking pretty good in this latest gameplay video, and the great lighting can be seen in full effect. One thing that is clear is that 343 have attempted to put a lot more emphasis into the power weapons in Halo 5, and a typical game of slayer will revolve more around weapon spawns in the map.

    Messages will even be announced when a team picks up a weapon such as a sniper rifle or a rocket launcher, and the start message mentions "picking up power weapons" is part of the Slayer game rules.

    If you are a longtime Halo fan, I think you'll like what you see. You can check out the video here.

  • Telltale's Game of Thrones Hits Consoles December 2nd

    telltale games game of thronesTelltale are pretty good at telling tales, let's be honest. They created the award winning The Walking Dead series, managed to live up to their high expectations with The Wolf Among Us, and very recently they returned to their story-telling roots by releasing Tales of The Borderlands - a great new game that follows the concoction Telltale are known for whilst exploring the backstory behind the Borderlands universe.

    Now, they have plans to release their in-development Game of Thrones game, and it's launch date has been set for December 2nd. On this date, the first part of a six episode series will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PlayStation 4, with an iOS release following shortly after.

    It seems that the entire Game of Thrones six-piece series will be available for just $30, although details on whether players will be able to buy each episode separately have not yet been mentioned by anyone at Telltale.

    I've played through The Walking Dead game by Telltale so I know there's a lot of potential for this Game of Thrones themed game too, but what do you think of the upcoming Game of Thrones Telltale game?

    It will be interesting to see how the game correlates with the story, and i'm sure a lot of die-hard GoT fans will be eager to find out just how close to the lore Telltale have stuck to with their game.

    Will you be picking up the new game on launch, waiting for reviews or skipping it entirely? Let us know your thoughts.

  • 100 Best Advanced Warfare Players Rewarded with Gold Armor

    advanced warfare grand master armorSledgehammer Games have just announced a brand new armor set for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare, but it will be limited to the very best players in the world.

    To get the newly announced armor, you will need to do more than just good. In fact, only the top 100 players in the world will be given access to it.

    The armor is a gold plated version of the bloodthirster armor, which can only be unlocked by receiving killstreaks within a multiplayer game. On top of earning the awesome gold plate armor set, the top 100 players will also be given the Grand Master name tag.

    Unfortunately, Sledgehammer Games have not revealed all of the details about this new armor yet, so we're unsure how the developer will rank the top 100 players. Whether or not it will be based on kill/death ratio, top played time, or simply the top 100 players in the global leaderboards, we're not sure, but we'll be sure to let you know as more details are revealed.

    As for the release date for the new Grand Master armor, once again we aren't sure, but we expect Sledgehammer Games will release more information about it fairly soon.

    What do you think about this new Grand Master armor? Do you think it is exciting that Sledgehammer are giving players an incentive to rank up in the leaderboards, and do you think they should offer lower tiered items for those who can't make it to the top 100?

  • New Capcom PS4 Game Announcement Soon

    capcom ps4 new gameIt's always exciting to hear about what games Capcom are currently working, and it's especially exciting at a time like this when the new generation of consoles is desperately in need of new games.

    Fortunately, according to reports Capcom is gearing up to announce a brand new PlayStation 4 game, and it should hopefully be something to dance about. Whilst we aren't sure about what game Capcom could possibly have up their sleeves just yet, Jun Takeuchi, Capcom company director recently mentioned in an interview with Famitsu that "PlayStation 4 development has been ongoing."

    In response to this, Takeuchi also mentioned that it's taken a while for Capcom to get to grips with the new system. "SCE has made a really incredible system for us," Takeuchi said. "But the more I use the system the more it seems there is to uncover."

    When asked about if Capcom had plans to release any PS4 games we do not yet know about, Takeuchi had a very positive response. "Of course. Right now we're seeing how far we can push the game engine. You'll be surprised by the quality of the games we're working on right now. I think we'll be able to announce it son, so please look forward to it."

    As a final note, Takeuchi ended the interview with his thoughts about trying to get seen by the rest of the world, and their new game has got to, "Be something that will even turn heads overseas."
