  • Massive COD Ghosts Ban wave Will Not Be Reversed

    cod ghosts banwave

    Dozens of players are reporting that they have just been banned from playing Call of Duty Ghosts in what looks to be the biggest ban wave the game has ever seen.

    When connecting to servers for the first time after loading the game, banned players will be notified that they have been permanently banned due to a violation in the security and enforcement policy.

    The ban wave seems to have mainly targeted both the PlayStation 4 and the PlayStation 3, but the main reason for why players have been banned seems to be unclear. Whether or not it's related to cheating or using unfair exploits has not yet been revealed by Activision, but it seems some players are stating they have played legitimately and have been caught up in the whole commotion.

    Some players seem to believe that they have unknowingly entered a hacked lobby and then backed out to avoid getting caught up with cheaters. Unfortunately this is something that players cannot avoid, as they are directed to the lobbies via the in-game matchmaking mechanic. If this is true, Activision will most likely work on fixing those that have been banned unfairly. The trouble is, most real cheaters will probably not admit that they have cheated, and it may end up with thousands of players complaining about being banned, even if a large portion of banned players did deserve it.

    If you got banned unfairly, expect quite a long waiting time before you get unbanned, however some players are already getting unbanned at the time of writing.

  • New Character Added in Free Tekken Revolution Patch

    new character tekken revolution

    Free to Play PlayStation 3 Beat'em up Tekken Revolution has just received a new patch that adds a new character to the playable roster, as well as changing a few other things around in game, too.

    Namco Bandai has revealed that the new update, which is now available to download, includes Jaycee, a character who was first seen in Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and has a Lucha Libre wrestling fighting style. Jaycee is in fact a masked version of Julia Chang, who was first seen in Tekken 3.

    This new patch adds a few new things to the game to celebrate Valentine's day as well, and also adds a few tweaks and fixes to the flow of Tekken Revolution. One of the new changes has made it possible to get an increased chance to be a lucky winner with the Blood Seal Jackpot, however this deal was only available from the 14th of February to the 19th of February.

    Prices for premium effects have also now been lowered in a sale, but will go back to full price on February 24th.

    A new level cap has been implemented into the game, giving long-time players more challenges to work towards. The new level caps are Level 70 and 25 Dan.

    There is also a Mojukin Festival event which runs from February 21st to February 23rd. I haven't had a chance to play Tekken Revolution so I'd be interested to see what differences the game has now that this title is free to play.

  • New UK Cinema Spot Released for Dark Souls 2 - Yes, it Looks Epic

    dark souls 2 spot

    If you can excuse the strange choice of music, I have something very exciting to show you. It's a brand new trailer headed for UK cinemas, and it shows some pretty intense footage of Darks Souls 2 in action.

    The trailer focuses on an iron-clad hero as he battles through numerous enemies, takes down a dragon, and goes through various forms of terrain. I know that the trailer doesn't really represent actual gameplay footage, but it still looks absolutely awesome.

    I was very interested in the first Dark Souls game but have yet to play it unfortunately, but I have heard many great things from the game, so this looks like a very nice treat, especially for anybody that has played the first game.

    The trailer seemed to be directly advertising the Black Armor Edition and the Collector's Edition of the game, and showed both copies with their exclusive goodies at the end of the trailer. The Black Armor Edition comes with the game, the title's soundtrack, as well as early access to the Black Armors weapon pack, which comes with five new weapons.

    The Collector's Edition also comes with the same exclusives, however it also comes packed with a 12" Warrior Knight figure, a Collectible art book, and a map of the game's world.

    Dark Souls 2 has been confirmed to be released this March, with March 11th, March 13th and March 14th playing key dates for different regions.

  • Far Cry Original Remake Released

    Far Cry Classic

    Over the last half decade, it's become quite a popular thing for developers to make remakes of their old games. I'm not just talking about new re-imagined versions of games, either, I'm talking literal ports of ancient titles with nothing new added to it other than an HD skin, in most cases.

    Personally, I always feel the idea behind playing an old game is for the nostalgia value, and HD remakes always ruin that for me a little, however if you're a fan of HD remakes, you may want to keep get your wallet out because the original Far Cry game is about to join the likes of Goldeneye, Halo: Combat Evolved, and Fable: The Lost Chapters, among others.

    A Far Cry Classic remake has been rumored for a while now, and it has finally been released to the public, however details are still a bit blurry. Ubisoft seemed to have messed up a little with the promotion of the project, and despite development time being put in the remake to add revamped cutscenes, enhanced graphics and a new interface, it's unclear whether Far Cry Classic will ever actually make it to North America in the same manner as other regions.

    If you're living in Europe, you'll be able to pick up 'Far Cry Wild Expeditions' which comes packed with all of the Far Cry games ever released, as well as Far Cry Classic for PS3, Xbox 360 or PC.

    If you live in North America, the same bundle is available, but Far Cry Classic has been excluded - the bundle for North America has also been renamed to the 'Far Cry Compilation' and is available for $39.99

    Despite this strange bundle mishap, both regions can grab a digital copy of Far Cry Classic for just $11.99 from Xbox LIVE or the PlayStation Network.

  • Arkham Origins has Bugs, but Warner Bros. Won't Fix Them

    Arkham Origins Bugs

    Unfortunately, Batman: Arkham Origins hasn't been released without some issues, and a lot of players have made remarks about bugs and glitches currently in the game. It seems quite a common occurrence these days to have a game released by a triple A development team that is filled with bugs, glitches and errors that really shouldn't be in the game at all.

    It's ridiculously frustrating for the average gamer, and it makes us feel a bit used, really. It feels as if developers and publishers are simply using our love for games as a way to get to our wallets, and this story will just make us all even angrier.

    What's really terrible about the bugs in Batman: Arkham Origins is that Warner Bros. know exactly what bugs are in the game, thanks to the dozens of reports spread across the internet, but despite this, they seem reluctant to do anything about them.

    And the reason why Warner Bros. isn't in a hurry to fix the bugs in Arkham Origins is because they are focusing on something else instead - DLC.

    Yes, that's right, Warner Bros. doesn't want to fix the bugs and glitches in the game right now because they'd rather work on bringing in more content to the game that players can purchase.

    The community managers exact words are as follows - "The team is currently working hard on the upcoming story DLC and there currently are no plans for releasing another patch to address the issues that have been reported on the forums."

    If you aren't having any issues or are happy to play through the problems, the new upcoming DLC is expected to be a single player add-on that will bring Batman up against Mr Freeze.

  • Microsoft is Offering $100 If you Hand Them your PS3

    Microsoft 100 off ps3

    Microsoft is pretty well known for slandering it's competition, and recently they've really tried hard to make their competitors look like insignificant wastes of time, despite being a fair way behind their competitors in the industries they are working in.

    In the gaming industry, I have a feeling we can expect a lot of PlayStation slandering campaigns to go ahead over the next few years, but that's okay, because Sony usually has a witty thing or two to say back.

    The most recent of these campaigns offers those who want an Xbox One a path easier on their wallets. To be precise, Microsoft has offered to take your PlayStation 3 off of your hands, in return for a $100 discount card on a brand spanking new Xbox One.

    Microsoft may have admitted that the Xbox One is priced higher than the PS4, and this looks like their first measure to try and make their price a little closer to the cheaper PlayStation.

    The trouble is, despite this being a nice way to get a new Xbox One, it really isn't that much of a great deal. By giving your PlayStation 3 to Microsoft, you'll be making $100, whilst they could then go and sell that off to a refurbished electronics retailer for more than $100.

    If you really want an Xbox One, you'll be better off selling your PS3 privately on a website like eBay, instead of handing it into Microsoft.

    PlayStation 4 fans have taken to the internet to poke fun at the campaign. One fan has changed up the original sign that said "ditch your PS3 and get $100 store credit towards Xbox One" and replaced it with the writing "Keep your PS3 and save $100 by ignoring Microsoft and buying a PS4."

  • New Concept Art Shows the World of Dragon Age: Inquisition

    Dragon Age Inquisition Concept Art

    For some of you, news of concept art might sound a bit boring. It's one of the major milestones in game development though, and you can usually get a pretty good idea of how a game is going to look through concept art.

    Some new concept art has been shown of Dragon Age: Inquisition, and I'm pretty happy to see that the world is shaping up to be pretty magnificent.

    The graphics on the previous Dragon Age games have never been stunning, but they've certainly never been bad enough to put you off playing the game, and I expect that Dragon Age: Inquisition will have graphics that are slightly more impressive than the previous title, even if it has been announced to be released on the Xbox 360 and PS3, along with next generation versions.

    The concept that has been shown gives us the impression the Inquisition will take place in the same grimy & mythical environments as the previous games, and a lot of the huge open atmospheric spaces that you usually find yourself stumbling across will most likely return in Inquisition.

    Dragon Age: Inquisition has been planned for a late 2014 release for the Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, however it's unclear whether this date is set in stone or not.

    Let's hope BioWare do release Inquisition this year, and hopefully it will be an enjoyable game to play through. We've got a lot of great next gen games lined up this year, but at the moment, there really isn't that much to offer on the PS4 or the Xbox One.

  • Sony Reports that Current Demand for PS4 Won't Be Met Till February

    Well if you're one of the lucky ones to have a PS4 then you don't have to worry. But those who have yet been able to grab one, you might still have to wait a bit. Sony is having the sale of their lives and it seems regardless of their plans of constantly restocking retailers, the demand is far from being met.

    During an interview with the Gardian, SCE CEO Andrew House said that Sony doesn't expect that they will be able to fulfill demands until even February. He said, "So I'd characterise it as being somewhat supply-challenged for the remainder of the calendar year, but hopefully we’ll be able to satisfy that pent-up demand as we get out to January and February."

    As of now, despite the unavailability, Sony expects the PS4 to outsell the PS3 within the firs fiscal year. Since its launch in November 2006 till March 2007, the PS3 sold a total of 3.5 million units. Standing by their initial assessment, they are expecting that the PS4 will sell 5 million units during the same 5 month time period.

    Currently they are anticipating their sales to hit 3 million by the end of 2013, and last we heard they sold 2.1 million units worldwide. The PS4 is currently available in 48 countries and will launch in their strongest market, Japan, in February. So what do you guys think, will they be able to reach the 5 million mark by March?138

  • Minecraft PS3 Set for Release this week

    Minecraft PS3 ReleaseDespite being out on the Xbox 360 since last year, no other ports have reached the market, apart for the pocket edition version for Android and iOS devices. However, that is about to change as it has been confirmed that 4J Studios, the team behind the console ports, has finally finished with the PS3 version and it is planned for a release this week.

     

    On Tuesday, 17th December, Minecraft for PlayStation 3 will be available as a digital download on the PlayStation store. The Minecraft Xbox 360 version is available for around $20, so it's likely the price of the PlayStation 3 version will be similar, however we won't be able to find out until it's release day tomorrow.

     

    Although it has taken 4J Studios a long time to port the Xbox version over to the PS3, the PlayStation version won't be missing out on any game content, and will include all of the features in the latest patch on the Xbox 360 version.

     

    The PS3 game will come with no extra skins or texture pack DLCs, but these will be added later on in 2014.

     

    The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 ports were also planned for a late 2013 release, however they have since been delayed and will now only make it to consoles some time in 2014, along with the extra PS3 DLC content.

     

    4J Studios also have plans for improving upon the current gameplay experience for the console port, however they won’t be working on new updates for the consoles until all console versions are out, so TU14 for Xbox 360 has since been delayed.

  • Telltale Games' The Walking Dead Season 2 Release Draws Closer, Returning Character Revealed

    Walking Dead Season 2

    Telltale Game's The Walking Dead has been one of the most successful video games in the past year, and despite lacking much actual gameplay content, it's still considered a very successful and well-made game.

    Season 2 of Telltale Game's The Walking Dead was confirmed some time last year, however the release for the first episode is now drawing closer.

    Although an official date hasn't been confirmed, the first episode of season 2 has said to be made available this December, and Telltale Games have been trying their hardest to resist the temptation to release any spoilers.

    However, it looks like someone working at Telltale Games couldn't resist and has revealed a screenshot that shows a character from the first season making a return to season 2.

    This character is Omid - a man who managed to make it out of the first season alive and hardly remembered. He didn't play much of a part in the first season, but this new screenshot seems to suggest that Omid will play a bigger part in the story of season 2.

    Season 2 will be named "All that Remains" and will be available on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 - players who have played the first season will be able to continue with their same story progress in season 2, as long as they have they still have the saved game file for the first season on their profile.

    No details have been given on a release for any other platforms.
