  • Huge Halo 5 Guardians Leak - Aim Down Sight Myths Squashed

    Halo 5 Guardians ADSSo far, Microsoft have managed to keep things about Halo 5 Guardians pretty quiet, and the only content about the game that we have learned about in the past has come straight from Xbox themselves. However, over the weekend, a massive leak showing video footage of Halo 5 hit the internet, and it stirred a frenzy.

    Whilst the leak has pretty much been wiped from the web as of writing, the internet never forgets, and we can all still recall what the video displayed. The gameplay showed a few seconds of combat, focusing on a player using a Battle Rifle.

    What was clear right away was the changes that had seemed to be made to the ADS in Halo. Ever since Combat Evolved, ADS has been limited to scoped weapons like sniper rifles and battle rifles, and the strange new battle rifle ADS in Halo 5 Guardians confused many players into thinking that ADS would be the norm in the upcoming Halo game.

    However, a 343i official responded to the leak on Twitter and stated that ADS will not be the norm in Halo 5 Guardians. The tweet was as follows.

    "No penalty to hip fire in H5, no movement penalty when scoping/zooming, no flinch. Tune in for the beta gameplay reveal at #HaloFest Monday."

  • You Can Dress as a Zombie in Advanced Warfare

    zombie in advanced warfareIf you have been keeping an eye on Advanced Warfare, you are probably already aware that the game comes with a brand new zombies mode that offers players the ability to fight against waves after waves of the living dead.

    However, for the first time ever, players will (sort of) be able to play as a zombie by playing Advanced Warfare. Similar to the clothing system in Call of Duty Ghosts, players will be able to unlock cosmetic gear by completing certain goals.

    If you manage to do well in the new zombie mode, you may stand a chance of unlocking zombie cosmetic gear to wear in Multiplayer. There are four different pieces of zombie clothing, and to unlock the full outfit you will need to complete various tiers of zombie mode.

    "Survival mode in COD: AW has 4 tiers, 4 maps in the first 3 tiers, 1 map (Riot) in the last tier. To unlock the 2nd tier, you need to complete 50 rounds overall in the 1st tier, to unlock the 3rd tier, you need 75 rounds overall in 2nd tier, for the 4th and final tier, you need 100 rounds completed in the 3rd tier. You receive 2 pieces of zombie equipment for unlocking the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th tier.

    To get the final 2 pieces ('zombie top' and the zombie player head) you need to reach round 10 on Riot (the 4th tier) at which point a DNA bomb drops, and you then have to fend off a single wave of zombies for about 3 minutes before evacuating and getting shown that cut scene that leaked earlier. There is no 'zombies mode' or any extra reward for doing this. These are permanent items."

    Want help getting through these hordes of zombies? Check out Evil Controllers, they have the Master Mod which includes Rapid Fire, Quick Reload, and much more. These zombies won't stand a chance!

  • GTA San Andreas HD Now on Xbox 360

    gta san andreas hdGot any change to spare? If you have, you may want to boot up your Xbox 360 and head to the Xbox Games Store. Want to know why? Right now you will be able to find GTA: San Andreas for just a few bucks.

    The game has debuted on the Xbox 360 this week, and it comes with a range of improvements to make the game slightly better than the original.

    Firstly, the new GTA San Andreas HD has had a resolution increase, and the game now plays at 720P. Whilst it seems that Rockstar have simply upscaled the original textures, it's nice to see that the game will run smoothly on the Xbox 360 at a 720P HD resolution.

    On top of upscaling the resolution, Rockstar have also increased the in-game draw distances, which will allow players to see more area of the map at once whilst playing.

    Finally, with the debut to Xbox 360, Rockstar have added a bunch of achievements for the game that can be unlocked by playing through the story.

    The new GTA Sand Andreas HD can be picked up for just $3.74 in North America, and £2.99 in the UK. If you haven't played San Andreas before, we think that there's no reason not to pick up this game.

    The game was recently released on iPhone and Android, but it's lack of a decent control scheme easily make it a second pick when compared to the brand new HD version for Xbox 360.

  • Leaked Battlefront 3 Trailer Shows what Canned Game Could Have Been

    battlefront 3 trailerAs you may already know, after Disney acquired LucasArts, they stopped the production of a variety of upcoming Star Wars games, including the hotly hyped Star Wars 1212, and the at the time in-production Battlefront 3.

    Battlefront 3 was being designed as a direct sequel of the previous Battlefront games, and unlike the plethora of new mobile based Star Wars games released under Disney’s watch, it was something that many gamers were genuinely excited about.

    Unfortunately, Battlefront 3 was cancelled, and all development of the game was halted, but a brand new video shows off leaked gameplay, giving details of what the game could have become.

    The video, which can be seen on YouTube, is very rough as the game is still in alpha stage, but the framework for the game was certainly clear.

    It was a shame that Battlefront 3 was cancelled, but Disney have now set Battlefield creator DICE to the task of making the next best title for the franchise. Simply named Battlefront, many have expected the game to draw inspiration from DICE's FPS background to offer a super enjoyable Star Wars shooter experience.

    Will DICE’s Battlefront be better than Battlefront 3 could have been? We will never know, but let's hope DICE does the game justice.

    Battlefront by DICE is set for release at some point next year. Unfortunately a full release date has not yet been revealed by the developer.

    Hopefully we will see some proper footage of DICE's game soon.

  • Far Cry 4 Trailer for Kyrat Edition Released

    far cry 4 kryat editionFar Cry 4 is getting a pretty spectacular special edition release, and Ubisoft were so proud of it that they have recently released a brand new trailer showing off the limited edition copy of the game.

  • Evolve Gets Alpha Plans for Halloween

    evolve alphaEvolve, the upcoming 4v1 alien shooter title for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One has recently been confirmed to be holding a set of "big alpha" events over the days leading up to Halloween.

    The alpha phase will start at the end of this month, and Xbox One players will be able to get into game on the 30th of October, 24 hours before both PlayStation 4 players and PC players.

    Players who own a pre-order of Evolve will be given instant access to the big alpha phase on either October 30th or October 31st depending on the platform that player owns, however there will be chances for those that have signed up to the alpha to get access to it regardless of whether they purchased the game or not.

    It would make sense that the amount of alpha slots for those who have not pre-ordered is limited, however we do not know how limited the slots will be at this time.

    Once the alpha phase for Evolve starts, it will continue over the Halloween weekend and into November, before ending on the 2nd of next month.

    If Evolve has taken your interest since it's announcement, I would certainly suggest giving it a try at the end of the month, as I'm sure the alpha stage will give you a good idea of what the game will be like. I personally can not wait to see how Evolve will play out.

  • White PS4 Standalone May Be Available This Month

    white ps4 standaloneTo celebrate the release of Destiny, most of Europe and the UK received a brand new PS4 bundle that included a copy of Destiny and a white PlayStation 4, along with a DualShock 4 controller.

    Now that the release of Destiny has long since gone, the white PS4 bundles have slowly died out, but Sony have seen demand for the product and have decided to make plans to release the white variant of the console as a standalone device.

    Shuhei Yoshida has revealed that the white PlayStation 4 will be released as a standalone product very soon, but unfortunately the console will be limited to Europe for now. As with the Destiny bundle, Yoshida failed to mention anything about a North American release for the white version.

    The white standalone PlayStation 4 will cost £350, which is slightly more than the current £329 street price of the PS4. Of course, if you're in the US and you really want a white PS4, you might have to pay considerably more to get it shipped over here.

    Besides from the color change, there are absolutely no differences between the white PS4 console and the black PS4 console, and hardware-wise everything is the same.

    Whether or not you like the white console will probably come down to preference, but it's a shame that only those in Europe or the UK will be given the option to choose between a white or a black PlayStation 4.

  • GTA V Will Have Huge 50GB Install Size

    gta v ps4 install sizeWe've talked a little bit in the past about large game install sizes, but today we have some crazy news to share with you. It has been rumored that Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 could take exactly 50GB of storage space from your beloved PS4's hard drive.

    That is a huge 10% of the default hard drive that comes with the PS4, and that is only for one game - this does not include any content patches or DLC that Rockstar may plan to release in the future.

    50GB may not seem like much, but it's starting to reach the point where many games require between 30GB and 50GB free for install space, and over the next few years that size may keep going up.

    For those with slow connections, this is a very large issue, and it makes paying for digital games almost impossible. It's great to see that Sony and Microsoft are now offering digital downloads for their games, but it is not a very viable option, considering that it would only take around 10 games to fill up an entire hard drive.

    For now, physical discs and Blu-rays are still the way to go, and until devices start including more storage space as standard, it's going to be a long, long time before installs overtake sales of physical sales for console video games.

    Whilst there has been no mention of the GTA V Xbox One storage size, it's likely to be very similar or identical to that of the PlayStation 4.

  • Tekken 7 Screenshots Reveal New Characters

    tekken 7 new charactersNew screenshots of Tekken 7 have hit the internet that show off a few aspects of the game, including two characters new to the franchise. The first new character shown in official screens has been named as Claudio. Not many details have been given about Claudio, besides from the fact that he dons a white cloak, and some players have made relations to Maxi from the Soul Calibur series.

    Another character in the screens by the name of Katarina has also been revealed, but once again, details on this character have been left out. Both characters can be seen in the image shown above. Along with the two new characters, Tekken 7 will host all previous characters seen in previous games in the franchise.

    Whilst Tekken 7 is still under development a few arcades in Japan have the game available for play, and players have reported that the game will come with a few new gameplay mechanics, including Power Crush, a new ability that allows players to take hits from the opponent whilst trying to perform a certain move or combo.

    Other than this, no more new information has been shared about Tekken 7, and we are still unsure when the game will be released. I expect the game will be released at some point in the second half of 2015, but I cannot guarantee that, so I'd take my speculation with a grain of salt.

    Hopefully we'll learn more about the two new characters closer to the launch of Tekken 7.

  • New Destiny Patch Nerfs Engram Farming

    destiny engram farmingAfter reaching level 20, a lot of players in Destiny have resorted to strange methods to try and collect the most amount of loot possible in a short time period in the hopes to acquire new legendary and excotic equipment.

    The most popular engram farming method involved standing in a certain spot, firing at a cave full of enemies, reloading, and then firing again as soon as they spawn, typically just 5 to 10 seconds later.

    A week ago, this area in Destiny was always occupied with players working together to farm the hell out of that cave, but Bungie has noticed this strange behaviour in players, and whilst they praised their attempts at finding a engram farming method so quickly, they have since nerfed the cave, making respawn times from enemies in certain areas much larger.

    Bungie addressed the issue by saying, "The social experience of a cave farming run is amazing: the herding to get a team of Guardians all behind the line and firing in the right direction, the rush to grab the loot, the scramble when the panic wave starts, the beckoning glow from inside the cave."

    "The speed at which the community organised around this activity was inspiring and humbling to us."
    "But shooting at a black hole for hours on end isn't our dream for how Destiny is played. Our hope is that social engagement in public spaces is only one part of the Destiny experience. Expect changes soon which decrease the efficiency of cave farming and correspondingly increase engram drops from completing activities."
