  • Valve and HTC Team Up To Announce New VR Headset

    htc viveHTC has just announced a brand new product that they have been working on in partnership with Valve. The new product is a virtual reality headset that has been manufactured to compete with other VR headsets from manufacturers such as Samsung and Oculus.

    The new headset has been given the name HTC Vive, and unlike other virtual reality headsets, it will act as a standalone device, and no other devices, such as smartphones, will be needed to operate it.

    It seems HTC are at the forefront of development for the HTC Vive, and Valve has simply partnered with them to ensure themselves a space in the newly born virtual reality scene that has been growing over the last few years.

    Peter Chou, HTC's vice chairman, made a statement about the HTC Vive.

    "We believe virtual reality will totally transform the way we interact with the world. Virtual reality will become a mainstream experience for the general consumer the possibilities are limitless. Viewing awesome scenery, attending real time concerts, learning history, watching an incredible movie, reliving memories through photos or even shopping will never be the same in virtual reality."

    It's clear that the Vive will be used for games, but HTC are looking to reach other audiences besides from just gamers, too. Hopefully we'll see some success from the device, which is planned to release this Holiday season.

    Do you think Valve and HTC have a chance to make it in the virtual reality game? It would be great to see something big happen with the HTC Vive, but only time will tell.

  • Aaron Greenberg says Halo 5 is Going to be Huge

    halo 5 2015So far, Halo 5 is actually looking to be a monster of a game, and thanks to Aaron Greenberg's latest comments in the Inner Circle podcast, we can get a better idea about just how huge the game is shaping up to be.

    "Halo 5 is gonna be huge. It should be one of the biggest entertainment releases of the year if we do our job right. I think what we've got with Master Chief and Locke is a marketer's dream. The game is just super-innovative. I think this is a title that 343 has dreamed of making, and they're innovating in ways that our jaws are dropping."

    "It's such a deep story. To me it's like the closest thing to playing in a real movie, you know. I love campaign. I play multiplayer and I enjoy it, but I just love to get deep in the campaign and co-op you know, and Halo was kind of the birth of that, and also at the same time has innovated the multiplayer, so I'm excited with what they're doing with Halo 5, and we'll be revealing more soon."

    Interestingly, Greenberg spent a considerable amount of time talking about Halo 5 limited edition consoles, suggesting that something that Halo fans would be excited about will be coming.

    "We have a great team that does a lot of cool custom consoles, and we'd love to make them for every title, and the challenge is that our retail partners can't take everyone, we can't manufacture twelve different versions, so we have to kind of pick our bets."

    "But I know some of the things we're planning for this Holidays, and I think you'll be pretty pleased with some of the limited edition plans, and there's some other things that we're still finalizing. But we have a lot of great games, and so I'm excited to see where we land. At this point, it's February, so we're not announcing our limited edition hardware at this point, but the teams are gonna have some good stuff, and it's good to hear there's an appetite for more."

    I for one cannot wait for Halo 5, and Greenberg is making it sound like an absolute dream game for Halo fans.

  • Mass Effect 4 Will Feature "Emotionally Believable Characters"

    mass effect 4Let's be honest, any open world game by Bioware is always going to look nice when compared to other titles released around the same time. Mass Effect 4 should be no different, and thanks to a new job listing on Bioware's website, we can get a better idea about what kind of direction Bioware will want artists to go in the upcoming Mass Effect.

    In a latest job listing, Bioware are looking for a member to join their team that can specifically create "emotionally believable characters that allow game players to interact with the game, whether photorealistic or stylized, in a realistic and believable fashion."

    The depth of story involved in the Mass Effect franchise has always been impressive, and being able to capture and create characters that really show believable emotion will be a great way to improve the story depth and detail of characters in Mass Effect 4.

    If Bioware manage to create a game that is both highly engaging as a fun game, and as a intense, emotional driven story, I think Mass Effect could potentially be the best game in the franchise yet.

    That is a big if though - so far we have seen very little content showing off what Mass Effect 4 will be like, and most of the details of the game have been kept incredibly quiet. In fact, we aren't even sure if the game will definitely be called Mass Effect 4 or not.

  • Surprise, Surprise - Another Project Cars Delay

    project cars delayThere's something about driving games and constant delays and setbacks that has rippled through the gaming industry recently. Whilst in recent talks, SCEE CEO Jim Ryan mentioned that the PS Plus edition of Driveclub still has no planned release, Project Cars will also get another setback.

    Fortunately this time the delay for Project Cars will not be massive, but the game launch will be pushed back to April 2, 2015, instead of the previously planned March release.

    Before you get mad at Slightly Mad studios, it's important to understand the impact these delays have on development. If we look at a game like Assassin's' Creed Unity, which was released in an absolute poor state, we can accredit it to nothing more than developers being incredibly pushed for time by their publisher to get their games out on a set date.

    These delays for Project Cars will (hopefully) mean that the full retail product will be as close to what we were hoping. There shouldn't be nearly as many problems, bugs or game breaking issues that have plagued many other AAA games in recent months.

    The head of Project Mad, Ian Bell, has stated that "these extra days will allow us to provide the best game experience that our fans deserve. We assure you the wait will be worth it when the game does arrive early April."

    I'm sure by now most gamers will much rather choose the delayed release option to the buggy, unplayable on-time route that some developers have chosen, so I'm actually glad to see Project Cars get setback a few days.

  • What is Happening at Bethesda's E3 Conference?

    bethesdas e3 conferenceRecently, Bethesda has revealed plans to hold a press conference at E3 in June, and by the sounds of it, it's going to be pretty big. But what could Bethesda be planning at their upcoming conference?

    The first conclusion that many people will jump to is the announcement of Fallout 4. Yes, this could be a possibility, and considering all of the hype surrounding the rumored game so far, it would make sense.

    The strange thing is that no matter how large a game Bethesda has announced, we've never seen a press conference as large as Bethesda is making their upcoming E3 conference to be.

    Whilst it is planned for E3, the actual conference will be happening a few days before all of the chaos of the gaming show. The event will take place on a Sunday, on June 14th.

    Before we straight up say it's most likely to be a Fallout 4 announcement, let's take a look at a few other things Bethesda could potentially show off. Firstly, the Doom reboot we've all been expecting for a long time still hasn't showed it's face - that's one possibility.

    If it's not Doom, Bethesda could release their upcoming free to play shooter BattleCry, but we doubt that game would receive a large press conference like the one planned for E3. A new venture into the Elder Scrolls universe could be a possibility too, but it would be odd for Bethesda to release a new Elder Scrolls game before Fallout 4. We'll let you know more as soon as we know more.

  • Killzone Devs Teasing Something New

    new killzone soonA brand new image has been posted to the Killzone twitter, suggesting that something will be coming "soon." Despite how vague this information is, it’s pretty clear that whatever that something is, it will be big.

    We can only speculate at this point in time - despite the announcement on the Twitter page, we have heard very little from within the Guerilla Games studio. No rumors have been spread in relation to Killzone over the last few months, so once again, we’re pretty short for answers.

    Some Killzone players are suggesting that the new announcement may be somewhat related to the PS Vita game, named Killzone Mercenary. Mercenary was released in 2013, so it's completely possible that the game could be receiving a timely update.

    Alternatively, there could be a completely new Killzone game for the PS Vita. Considering the 2 year gap since the last PS Vita title, it's not unreasonable to think Guerilla Games may completely scrap Mercenary to work on something completely new.

    It's completely possible that the new something may have nothing to do with the PS Vita whatsoever. A brand new Killzone game isn't entirely out of the question, although we expect we'll be more likely to see some kind of content patch for the game.

    Guerilla Games have already made a lot of changes to the base game of Killzone Shadow Fall, so seeing more changes would not be surprising at this point.

    Unfortunately, we can't really make any guesses past what we've shared here. We'll just have to be patient and see what comes in the near future.

  • New Screenshots of Batman: Arkham Knight shown

    batman arkham knight screenshotsThe next Batman game is called Batman: Arkham Knight, and it is currently looking very, very, interesting. Whilst Warner Bros didn't do such a good job with Batman Arkham Origins, Rocksteady games are looking to redeem the series.

    They did a great job with the previous Batman games, so I'm pretty sure they are going to go out with a bang with Batman: Arkham Knight, or at least that's what I am hoping.

    So far, we know that Batman Arkham Knight will feature Scarecrow. A cinematic trailer was released earlier this year that showed off the Batman fighting crime in Gotham City. In the trailer, Scarecrow threatened to cover the city in his infamous fear toxin. As a result, the city gets abandoned, and it's left for the baddies to patrol.

    Batman Arkham Knight may be the most open world game yet, and will feature a large variety of different Batman villains, although the main focus will be on Scarecrow this time round.

    New screens of Batman Arkham Knight were shared this week, and they look absolutely stunning. The amount of detail on these images is insane, and we can only hope that the game will feature graphics anywhere near the quality of these screenshots.

    Batman Arkham Knight has been set for release on October 14th this year. The game will be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC upon it's release in October. Will you be picking up Rocksteady's next Batman game?

  • Borderlands 3 Is Next Gearbox Game

    next gearbox gameWe talked a little bit about the next Gearbox game last week, but back then, all we knew about it was that it was going to be a new game within the Borderlands IP. We still know very few details about the game, but we do now know a title, (or a subtitle at least) as well as a bit more information.

    The next borderlands has been named as Borderlands 3, so it should continue directly from where the other two left off, instead of branching off into a different direction like Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel did.

    Another very interesting piece of information shared by Gearbox recently is that Borderlands 3 will not be making it's way to any other consoles other than current gen. We do expect it will be released for PC, but besides from that, only PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players will be able to get their hands on the next Gearbox game.

    This is an understandable move - the hardware in older consoles are likely to just keep the development and potential of the game to a bare minimum, and if Borderlands 3 is going to be the "big one" like Randy Pitchford previously suggested, then we are going to need as much console power as we can get.

    So far, we have no idea about a release date for Borderlands 3, although it's unlikely to be released at any point this year.

    Are you looking forwards to Borderlands 3, or are you going to pass?

  • Three New Games Announced by Bandai Namco

    New Bandai Namco GamesBandai Namco have been pretty silent recently, but that has just changed as they have just announced three new titles that they plan to release over the next 2 years. Unfortunately, the three games being published in 2015 and 2016 aren't exactly what some players may be looking for.

    Unless you're a fan of simulator games, then you'll be pleasantly surprised. The new game lineup includes Professional Farming 2016 and Professional Lumberjack 2015 and 2016.

    In an announcement, the VP of Bandai Namco Europe stated that, "We are thrilled to be collaborating with UIG Entertainment on these three exciting titles, including Professional Lumberjack 2015 and 2016 from the popular video game series, and Professional Farming 2016, the New Farm Simulator."

    Surprisingly, a lot of the recent simulator games, such as Professional Farming, have been very successful in recent years, and it looks like Bandai Namco are trying hard to capture any areas of the gaming industry they can profit from.

    I have personally never touched a farming simulator game, so I'll be interested to see how well both the Professional Farming and Professional Lumberjack franchises perform in the next few years.

    Are you a fan of farming simulator games, or would you prefer Bandai Namco to put more effort into other franchises?

  • Battlefield Hardline Beta Starting This Week

    battlefield hardlineThe second Battlefield Hardline beta is set for release this week, and a lot of players are getting ready to jump in to the game. The beta will be running from the third of February to the eighth of February, and it will include a previously unplayed game mode called Hotwire.

    Hotwire is perhaps the best game mode to capture what Battlefield Hardline is all about. Both the cops and the criminals will need to take control of marked cars, and each team will need to take down the other team's car. I'm expecting to see a lot of high speed chases through cities and other environments.

    On top of Hotwire, players will also be able to play Heist mode in the new Battlefield Hardline beta, and that will be on the Bank Job map. In Heist mode, criminals will need to break into an area and collect a certain number of packages, then take them to drop off points in various locations on the map.

    As you can imagine, the cops job is to stop the criminals from stealing the valuables. Unlike previous betas, every weapon and gadget will be made available in Battlefield Hardline this week, and full level progression will be open to players.

    If you feel like a Battlefield gaming marathon, you may just be able to get through the leveling system and try out all of the new items in Hardline before the game is even released.
