  • 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.

  • Halo 4 Forge Maps Revealed

    Halo 4 Info


    After the huge success of Forge World in Halo: Reach, it's only fair that forge fans receive a treatment just as rewarding in Halo 4. A recent video has been released featuring Kynon Pearson, a developer for 343 Industries, and Lori Zawada, a developer for Certain Affinities, discussing the new forge features in Halo 4.

    Although neither the forge menus nor any of the main mechanics were showcased in this video, information about new maps were. Three new maps will be included with Halo 4 upon release, which have all been designed with forge in mind.

    The first map features jagged high-rising cliffs covered in rich green grass, surrounded by a vast ocean of blue. The map has been named Ravine, and it gives off the very authentic Halo feel that was given out to players in Forge World on Halo Reach.

    The second is named Erosion. There are three major areas to build upon in Erosion, the first being a medium sized indoor space which is perfect for Griffball or other small-sized objective maps. Leading from the interior room, there are two other areas accessible within Erosion. The first is a dusty platform with lots of varied terrain and natural scenery. The third is a large cave structure that gives players lots of free space to get creative with forge pieces.

    The last forge map is placed within an asteroid belt in space and has been named Impact. There are two large asteroids within the playing space and a smaller 'bridge' of asteroids connecting them together. There is also a large empty area to build upon in the depths of space.

    Unlike Halo Reach, these levels will not be interconnected, which for some may be a bit of a letdown, as neither of the three levels are anywhere near as impressive as forge world in terms of size. However, the levels offer different atmospheres to allow creativity, and there is plenty of room to create forge works of art, whether it consists of complex race tracks or well-planned maps designed for strategic gameplay.

    Ravine, Erosion and Impact are all stunning levels, and it would be amazing if we saw some of the community creations implemented into matchmaking similarly to Halo Reach.

  • New Borderlands 2 Pirate DLC Released


    Rumored for some time now, the 'Pirate DLC' many have been expecting for Borderlands 2 has been released. Following gameplay footage of a list of new PS3 trophies leaked from Eurogamer, Gearbox has now confirmed that they will be releasing their 'Pirate DLC' this month.

    "You can sense the pirate theme across the landscape, even though there's no water," said Gearbox Software president Randy Pitchford. "It's all dried up. It feels more like Tatooine than an ocean. These bandits have really embraced the pirate lifestyle, and there's the legend of a treasure. That kicks off this whole adventure that the players can go on."

    The new DLC, which has been set for release on October 16th, follows the early release for the Mechromancer character just one week ago. The newest DLC will focus new gameplay on Captain Scarlett, a one eyed pirate queen. The DLC will add a new expansive desert and a bandit-filled town named Oasis.

    The downloadable content won't just add pirates to the game; it'll also add new enemies such as sand worms that hover through the desert, and a new vehicle more suitable for the harsh environment. The pirate DLC will also add a new currency called Seraph Crystals. We're not quite sure what Seraph Crystals will be able to purchase you in the game, but it's likely to be a bunch of exclusive gear available only from the new pirate DLC.

    The downloadable content will cost $9.99, or if you pre-ordered the game, you'll notice the content available as soon as it's released.

    If one of your favorite features within Borderlands 2 is the ridiculous number of guns then you're likely to enjoy our Controller Creator that gives you the opportunity to build at random numerous custom modded controllers.

  • Halo 4 Trailer

    Halo 4 Trailer

    A new Halo 4 trailer has been scheduled to air live on October 18th on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and will then be available to watch from Halo Waypoint and the Xbox YouTube channel straight after.

    The two minute long trailer has been named Scanned, and will give an "emotionally charged" back story into the mind of Halo's returning protagonist, the Master Chief.

    The trailer is being produced by a large crew of talented directors and artists with mainstream success in the media industry. David Fincher, director of popular movies such as Fight Club and Se7en, is executive producing the project, alongside Tim Miller, lead visual effects artist for both Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World and the Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, who will be directing the title.

    Tim Miller said "The chance to tell a story that explores never-before-seen facets of Master Chief's journey is an honor. Our goal is to deliver a blockbuster, Hollywood-quality trailer that raises the bar for the award-winning legacy of live-action Halo storytelling and gets fans stoked for the return of Master Chief."

    "Halo is one of the most iconic sci-fi universes, with a depth that allows for amazingly cinematic and emotionally riveting stories."

    If we're to go by the previous high quality of other Halo launch trailers then we are in for a treat, and with legends David Fincher and Tim Miller behind the wheel, the trailer is likely to be even more special.

    Halo 4 will be released on November 6th.

  • Halo 4 Might Be the Hardest Halo Yet

    Halo 4 Gameplay Info

    Well if you've come this far through the Halo series, you may be in for a surprise: The Halo 4 campaign is not for the weak hearted.

    Frank O' Connor, development director of 343 Industries recently sat down at Eurogamer and played through a scene of the new Halo 4 campaign. As he played it was clear this game was going to be hard, and he was only playing it on normal difficulty.

    When I played Halo Reach on Legendary for the first time, it hit me how much Bungie had managed to improve the AI of the covenant, and this was one of the main reasons it was such a challenge. In Halo 4, AI has been improved drastically, and you'll be very lucky if you can manage to find a hiding spot behind a rock for a quick breather, because once Masterchief's enemies start to fire, they won't stop till the chief is dead, or till you return fire and take them out.

    Frank O' Connor has said that the new Halo campaign will be even less forgiving than it's predecessors, and each difficulty level has had a one-up; normal difficulty will be like heroic difficulty in previous games, heroic will be like legendary, and legendary will be the ultimate challenge of skill and prowess.

    Hopefully we'll see a bunch of skulls and terminals in-game, and maybe some extra collectibles too, because if we do, Halo 4's campaign will probably be the hugest campaign yet in terms of replay-ability.

    Be prepared by grabbing an advantage over the AI opponents and take advantage of our Adjustable Rapid Fire that comes packed in all, but one of our modded controllers.

  • Halo 4 Different Editions and Exclusives

    Halo 4 Editions and Exclusives

    Haven't pre-ordered Halo 4 yet? Good. Read this post to make sure you get the most out of the content within game, and help yourself save some bucks in the future too. Don't forget that subscribing to our newsletter gives you a chance to win an official Halo 4 console with official Halo 4 Controllers.

    There are three main releases for Halo 4 and for all you diehard fans, no, unfortunately there isn't a humongous legendary crate of Halo goodies like previous games, but there are plenty of extras included both in-game and out of game bundled with each edition.

    Halo 4 Standard Edition

    The Standard Edition will cost you $60, and will include just the bare backbone of the Halo 4 experience, including the full game in an average case and no extra features. Check out a few retailers though, because you could get an extra in-game reward like the Forest armor skin from Gamestop.

    Halo 4 Limited Edition

    If you're going to be playing the Halo 4 multiplayer for a long time after release, then this is probably the deal for you. The bundle, which costs $99, will be boxed in a snazzy and shiny case with UNSC symbols etched on the front and insides. The limited edition copy will include instant access to all 8 multiplayer Spartan specializations, early access to the first DLC maps, and 15% off all future download content. You'll also get a bundle of armor and weapon skins as well as a few documentaries, and some cool graphical content.

    Halo 4 Console

    The Halo 4 Console pack will come with a 320GB translucent Xbox and two pairs of controllers as well as the standard game. The controllers and Xbox will be skinned with highly detailed Halo themed graphics, and the Xbox will make a Hal0-like sound when turned on. Although this lacks some of the limited edition features, you'll grab yourself a wicked looking new Xbox and a pair of impressive controllers.

    Separate Controllers

    If you don't want to splash $399.99 on a new xbox, you can still get yourself separate UNSC themed controllers for $60. This allows you to get whichever edition of the game you want as well as a cool controller.

    You can definitely expect Evil to add some limited Halo 4 themed controller to our Controller Creator to help fans of the franchise make a truly custom halo 4 controller for themselves.

  • Play as the Flood in the New Halo Game

    Halo 4 Info

    The flood have become a very iconic race in the Halo series, and from every game since launch there has been at least a small reference to the parasitic species.

    It's been known for a while that we won't be seeing the flood in the Halo 4 campaign, but new gameplay reveals the ability to play as the flood creatures in the newly buffed infection game mode.

    Infection starts off with a group of players fighting against a predefined number of 'infected' players. In previous games the infected usually wielded an energy sword and had different health stats depending on the game variant. In Halo 4, when a player gets killed by the infected, the player will die and then transform into a figure of the well-known sentient plague. It's expected that the human players will start the game with shotguns, and the flood players will also have the option to use between three different armor abilities, one of which will be a thruster pack, capable of boosting the player towards other live players.

    The game mode name will be changed to flood, which won't make a significant difference, and it'll be likely to have its own matchmaking playlist like the Living Dead in Halo Reach.

    I'm interested to find out how the flood mode will play out in the new matchmaking atmosphere, and whether we'll see any flood missions in Spartan Ops.


    If you currently own an Evil Controller you can expect that our modded controller will be compatible with the newest game in the franchise in addition to Black Ops 2. Order a Stealth Adjustable v2 today to get a heads up on your opponents on Day 1.
