  • Activision Says Call of Duty Remasters are Possible

    call of duty remaster

    Whether you are looking forward to Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 or not, you can't deny that Activision has done a great job, alongside some of it's developers, to release a number of classic Call of Duty games in the past.

    Some players may have the fondest of memories in Black Ops 1, whilst others remember spending their days on Modern Warfare 2. Some veterans out there may even tell you that their fondest memories were from Call of Duty 4.

    Either way, there is a lot of nostalgia hiding in many of the older Call of Duty titles, and Activision CEO Eric Hirshberg understands that this is a great reason for remastered versions to be created.

    Hirshberg mentioned that, "If done well, remasters can be great."

    "You talk about nostalgia, and people have such connection to the games they love from the last cycle. They want to see what it would look like if someone did it right for this cycle."

    Hirshberg even went on to say that a remastered collection for Call of Duty could certainly be possible, but it mainly comes down to whether Activision can have the time spare to focus on such a thing, instead of working on newer titles.

    "We need everybody we can get to make the content we're already committed to for our new games. It's always a matter of finding great people to do that work. I would love to play Modern Warfare 1 or the original Black Ops. There's certainly a deep well there. No announcements, but it's something we talk about and think about a lot."

    So, yes - a Call of Duty remastered collection? Activision are definitely thinking about it.

  • Free PS Plus April Games Announced

    ps plus april gamesTwo games have been confirmed for the next PS Plus free games lineup, and the rest of the games will be revealed next week.

    Sony has been running the free PS Plus games promotion for a long time now, and there's always something to look forward to at the start of each month if you're a paying PS Plus subscriber. This month, the two games we know that are definitely coming to the platform are Woah Dave! and Dishonored.

    Woah Dave! is an arcade style platform puzzle game developed by Choice Provisions. Woah Dave! takes players on a galactic journey through space as the main protagonist, Dave, fights against aliens and other strange space oddities. Whilst Woah Dave! will be free at the beginning of April, Sony have mentioned that this game does not count towards the official free PS Plus game lineup.

    The other game, which most likely will be one of the six free PS Plus games in April is Dishonored, and this is a stealth action game by Bethesda that was released in 2012. Whilst some players have complained about the length of Dishonored, there's no doubt that it is a good game, and being able to get it for free is more than enough reason to give it a go.

    A lot of PlayStation owners have complained about the lack of quality in the most recent PS Plus free game lineups, but it must be mentioned that these games are free, and it's likely that Sony have to go through a reasonable amount of effort to sign a deal with the game developers and publishers before putting games up for free each month.

  • Dragon Age DLC Coming to PS4

    dragon age dlc ps4Even though the Dragon Age: Inquisition Jaws of Hakkon DLC was released last week for Xbox One, BioWare has revealed details on when the DLC will be coming to other platforms, including the PlayStation 4.

    According to BioWare via Twitter, the Jaws of Hakkon DLC will be available for all other supported consoles sometime in May. This includes the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

    The reason BioWare could not reveal details about the Jaws of Hakkon coming to other consoles earlier was because their exclusivity contract with Microsoft prevented them from doing so.

    In a Q&A session on Kotaku, BioWare's general manager, Aaryn Flynn revealed details about how the timed exclusivity deal works.

    "Jaws of Hakkon is a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and PC. This approach allowed for a lot of support from Microsoft and Origin in launching the DLC, so it did have that benefit for the team, and we appreciate the partnership," Aaryn mentioned. "However, as a timed exclusive, it is definitely coming to the game's other platforms, and based on our internal discussions I expect we'll be announcing more details next week."

    "I hope no one boycotts the purchase, as it's a pretty fun adventure that WILL be available on all platforms. That said, everyone is free to vote / message / communicate how they feel, so if that happens it happens. We're definitely paying attention."

    It's good to see that Jaws of Hakkon is coming to PlayStation and the Xbox 360, but it's understandable to see why some gamers are frustrated by timed exclusivity deals like this.

  • Sony's PlayStation Plus Free Games Delayed

    playstation plus free gamesUnfortunately, Sony has failed to release March's PlayStation Plus free games, and Sony has released a small statement explaining why this has happened.

    According to Sony's Fred Dutton in a new PlayStation blog post, they have not managed to finalize the lineup in time for March, and it may be a little while before they are given the go ahead to release the free PS Plus titles.

    "I appreciate you're all really keen to see the line-up and that it's frustrating having to hang on a bit longer than usual. Alas, we're still not quite ready to make the announcement."

    "I can't give you a firm time at present as to when the post will go live, but we're working to get it to you as soon as possible. It may well be next week at this stage."

    By the sounds of things, it is looking unlikely that we'll see the free games lineup in the few days of March, and we may even have to wait till the second week of March before the games are live. This is unfortunate, but Sony does need to confirm six different games with up to six developers before they can go ahead with deals like this.

    Whilst Sony has had a few hiccups this month, Xbox has already released their lineup, touting three great games, including Rayman Legends, Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite.

    So far, we have no idea what games will be part of the PS Plus lineup, but as soon as we know we shall let you know.

  • Another Hint That Titanfall 2 Will be on PS4

    titanfall 2 on ps4Titanfall originally released on the Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC, making it an exclusive for Microsoft platforms. Whilst it wasn't confirmed, at the time of the release, many were assuming that Titanfall would lose it's exclusivity by the time the second title was released.

    Let's be honest, Titanfall 2 probably is coming, and Respawn Entertainment are going to do all they can to keep it from dying out before the franchise has even had a chance to flourish. One way for Respawn to accomplish this is to reach out for a multi-platform release, including the PlayStation 4.

    So far, nobody at Respawn has confirmed in words that Titanfall 2 will be on PS4, but a new comment by EA CFO Blake Jorgensen kind of suggests that it won't just be the Xbox that will be getting the Respawn treatment in the new future.

    Jorgensen stated - "Last year it was on the Xbox only; in the future, we haven't yet announced, but we'll probably have another Titanfall game. It will probably be a bigger footprint than just a single platform. I think that's a huge positive for us."

    If there is a more obvious way of saying Titanfall 2 would be coming to PlayStation 4 without actually saying it, I'd be excited to hear, because as far as we're concerned it looks very likely that a Titanfall sequel will be coming to multiple platforms instead of just the Xbox One and PC.

  • PlayStation Plus Free Games for February Available Today

    playstation plus februarySony has just revealed their new lineup of free games for February, and players with a PS Plus subscription will now be able to head to the PSN store to download the new free games. As per usual, there are a variety of six games for free this month, two for each platform.

    PS4 - Apotheon

    Apotheon is a Greek mythology inspired platformer game filled with lots of button mashing combat. The game was originally released as an arcade title for the PS4, and it is fairly new.

    PS4 - Transistor

    Transistor is a sci-fi themed action RPG game made by the same developers responsible for Bastion. The city environment in Transistor is pretty epic, and there is a good few dozen hours worth of content to be played in the game.

    PS3 - Yakuza 4

    Yakuza 4 is an action adventure game developed by SEGA. It features various different mini games and modes related to fighting opponents. There is a bit of a backstory to Yakuza 4 that has been handed down through the franchise but there’s no reason you can’t pick Yakuza 4 up before playing the other ones.

    PS3 - Thief

    Thief is the latest reboot of the classic stealth based franchise. It may have a short campaign, but it’s still a lot of fun and definitely worth playing for free.

    PS Vita - Rogue Legacy

    Rogue Legacy is an action arcade game with procedurally generated 2D platformer style levels. There are ten different classes to play as, and plenty of reasons to come back to Rogue Legacy again and again.

    PS Vita - Kick and Fennick

    Kick and Fennick is an odd game that follows the adventure of a boy and his best friend, Fennick the robot. Fennick's battery breaks, and you'll spend the majority of the game as Kick, attempting to find a fix for Fennick's battery problem.

  • 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.

  • Detailed COD Advanced Warfare Prestige Emblems Detailed

    cod advanced warfare prestige emblemsWhilst nobody is yet the highest prestige in Advanced Warfare yet, the release of the game has allowed players to dive into the code and find out exactly what all of the prestige emblems look like.

    Admittedly, all of the prestige emblems in Call of Duty Advanced do look pretty cool, but the most interesting thing to come from the leaked prestige emblems is that there are a total of 16 prestiges in COD Advanced Warfare.

    It was revealed earlier in the year that Call of Duty Advanced Warfare would have a total of 15 prestiges, but it looks as if they have added in one more for the mix. On top of having 16 prestiges, Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will have 50 ranks for each prestige, meaning you will have to level up a total of 800 times before you max prestige the game, which is pretty crazy.

    In the screenshot shown above, all 16 of the new Call of Duty Advanced Warfare Prestige emblems can be seen.

    COD Advanced Warfare released earlier this week, and from our first impressions we are very impressed with the game so far. It has enough new to the franchise to keep things fresh, but it still feels and looks like the Call of Duty we have come to know and love.

    It will be interesting to see how well Call of Duty Advanced Warfare has sold, considering that it is available on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC.

  • October PlayStation Plus Free Games Lineup Finally Revealed

    ps plus gamesAfter a two week delay, Sony have finally revealed the next lineup for the monthly free PlayStation Plus games, and for October, PS Plus subscribers are in for a big treat.

    Firstly, DRIVECLUB has now been released, and players can pick up a free copy of the game with a limited amount of features - whilst DRIVECLUB has debuted this month, it will remain free for PS Plus subscribers forever.

    The PlayStation Plus version of DRIVECLUB is fairly limited. For example, PS Plus subscribers who do not pay for the game will only get access to 10 different cars and 11 different tracks to race on. In essence, the PS Plus version of DRIVECLUB is more like an extended demo.

    As for the actual October PlayStation Plus games, The PlayStation 4 has Dust: An Elysian Trail and Spelunky available for free this month.

    On PlayStation 3, Batman Arkham Asylum has been put up for free, and players can also grab Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystaria. Finally, for the PS Vita, both Pix the Cat, a new intense arcade game, and Rainbow Moon, a JRPG style game, have been put up for free.

    I'd say October looks like a good month for PS Plus subscribers, and if I don't get a chance to try any of the games released this month, I'll definitely be giving DRIVECLUB a go at some point. Besides DRIVECLUB, Batman Arkham Asylum may be the best offering this month, but all of the other titles are worth trying too.

  • Metal Gear Solid V Gameplay Shows off Dog Companion

    metal gear solid dog companionAs it turns out, players will be able to obtain a cute puppy companion in Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain which will follow the player around throughout the game.

    It has already been revealed that Hideo Kojima's new AI companion system will allow players to pick allies of Snake to join him on missions throughout Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but a new a gameplay video from Tokyo Game Show reveals a new companion that I think a lot of players are going to learn to love.

    The companion, which has been named the Diamond Dog, is a wolf companion that can be found in-game as a puppy. The game event at the Tokyo Game Show captured the relationship between Snake and the wolf as it grows, and I must admit, it is certainly filled with a lot of 'Aww' moments.

    The Diamond Dog even manages to receive his own eye patch later in the story, too. It must be noted that playing alongside the Diamond Dog, or any other AI companion character is completely optional, and players can choose whether to take these companions on missions with them before they set off to reach their destination.

    Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is set for release at some point in 2015 for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and the PC. So far, no solid release date has been announced, but as we near closer to 2015, I expect a confirmation for an exact date for the release of the game will be unveiled.
