  • October Xbox Live Games with Gold Deals Announced

    xbox live games with goldI have started to quietly anticipate the release of the Xbox Live Games with Gold and PlayStation Plus free games each month, and like clockwork, each month new games are announced, and thousands of players bag a bunch of titles for free.

    This month, Microsoft has announced a few new games for the Games with Gold promotion, some of which players may enjoy.

    The first title released as part of the October Xbox Live Games with Gold promotion is Battlefield: Bad Company 2, and whilst this game is now incredibly old, when compared to the lifespan of the Xbox 360, it is still a great title, and if you haven't played it, I'd definitely suggest giving it a try. Many old school Battlefield fans have named Bad Company 2 the last "good" Battlefield game, but you'll have to make your own mind up about that one.

    Bad Company 2 will be available to download for free till October 15th, and a day later, Darksiders 2 will be put up for free. Darksiders 2 is another old title, but it's important to remember both of these titles are AAA games, so I don't think there's worth complaining about it. Both of the aforementioned titles are for Xbox 360.

    As for the Xbox One, Chariot has been put up for free - it is a new arcade game developed by Canadian developers Frima. Chariot will debut on the Xbox One in October, so it's pretty nice to see it being offered for free - the game will be available till the end of October.

  • Mortal Kombat X Receives Release date and Pre-order Details

    mortal kombat x - CopyMore details for the upcoming Mortal Kombat X have been revealed by Warner Bros. including a confirmed release date and some information on the benefits of pre-ordering the game today.

    Firstly, Warner Bros. have revealed that Mortal Kombat X has been set for release on April 14, 2015, and the game will be readily available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and the PC at this date.

    Secondly, Warner Bros. mentioned that players who pre-order Mortal Kombat X before it's release date will receive Goro, an additional character for the game. Goro is a four armed character who first appeared in the original Mortal Kombat as a non-playable boss.

    So far, it's unclear whether Goro will be made available to those who do not pre-order at some point after the release of Mortal Kombat X, or whether Goro will remain as an exclusive for early adopters. Goro is a pretty important character in the Mortal Kombat series, so it would be a shame if he was left as an exclusive to those who pre-order. It would also seem unfair if Goro proved to be a better character than most other characters that those who did not pre-order would be able to choose from.

    Either way, we're bound to hear more about the characters that will be present in Mortal Kombat X, the DLC planned, and further details on the pre-order bonus as we near the release date of the game, which will be in seven months time.

  • Destiny Free Last-Gen Promotion Revealed

    destiny last gen upgrade - CopyIt has been revealed that Bungie plan to provide a promotion to make it easier for those who own both a new and an old gen console.

    In simple terms, players who purchase either the Xbox 360 version or the PlayStation version of Destiny will be able to upgrade to a new console in the future at no cost. Many developers have provided discounted 'upgrade' promotions that usually allow a player to purchase a PS4 or Xbox One copy of a game for a discounted price, as long as they own the same game for either the PS3 or Xbox 360 respectively. This is the first time a developer has offered a game upgrade for free, which is pretty awesome.

    There are a few rules to the free Destiny promotion - firstly, players must choose to upgrade before January 2015, as the promotion will end after this period, and secondly, players will only be given a digital version of the game to download from either the Xbox Games store or the PSN marketplace.

    Players will also only be able to use the promotion within the same console family. For example, PS3 players will only be able to grab a free version for the PS4, and Xbox 360 players will only be able to grab a free version for the Xbox One.

    Finally, players who upgrade will be able to carry their stats over to their new console as long as they use the same gamer profile for both consoles.

  • Forza Horizon 2 Map Looks Absolutely Massive

    forza horizon 2 map sizeNew images have surfaced of Forza Horizon 2, depicting the large world size we can expect to find in the game. Forza Horizon was the first time Turn 10 took the game to an open world platform, and whilst the concept was pretty neat for a Forza game, it wasn't all that it could be.

    This time round though, Forza Horizon 2 could be everything we could want from an open world racing sim, and the newly released pictures show off just how large the world will be in the new game.

    Turn 10 have taken inspiration from some of France's and Italy's most beautiful areas and combined them into one single open world area that expands to three times the size of the original Forza Horizon game.

    On top of having what we expect to be a set of incredible environments, Forza Horizon 2 will have a variety of different random weather effects that can change the road conditions and the overall appearance of the game. As you can see in the map picture shown above, a large amount of the world is base in rural environments instead of an urban setting like many tracks from previous Forza games.

    Obviously, on top of the absolutely huge open world map, Forza Horizon 2 will get treated to Turn 10's wide range of cars that have been slowly built up since the original Forza games. Expect 100's of cars, beautiful visuals and hours of great open world driving fun with Forza Horizon 2 - the game will be released on September 30th for Xbox One and Xbox 360.

  • Advanced Warfare Coming to Last-Gen Thanks to High Moon

    advanced warfare xbox 360For a while, we were unsure Advanced Warfare was ever going to come to last gen consoles, but now details have arisen to 100% confirm the presence of a last gen version of COD Advanced Warfare, which means players will be able to play the newest Call of Duty, even if they don't own a new console.

    The development studio behind the last gen port of Advanced Warfare is High Moon, the same team behind a range of movie based Transformers games, and Deadpool which released in 2013.

    There is definitely no doubting the creative potential of High Moon Studios, so it's likely the Advanced Warfare last gen port will be fairly spot on. Obviously one question that we all want answered is; what will the new gen have that the last gen won't?

    Other than obvious graphical changes, it's unclear just what owners of the last gen version of Advanced Warfare will be missing out on. Gameplay-wise, it's likely there won't be that much difference, but there may be a few tweaks here and there to ensure performance on the Xbox 360 and PS3 is smooth enough.

    Despite the port to last gen consoles, a Wii U version of Advanced Warfare is still not happening, which once again shows that not many developers are that interested in developing for Nintendo's new console at this point in time.

    Do you think it's worth owning a new console for Call of Duty Advanced Warfare now that last-gen consoles will have playable version of the game?

    Now that they released the good news that Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare is going to be released on last gen consoles its the perfect time pick up a brand new custom controller from Evil Controllers! Also, check out the Master Mod available for the Xbox 360 and PS3!

  • New August Xbox Live Games With Gold Announced

    xbox live games with gold augustWe've just rolled into a new month, and that means it's time to talk about the next Xbox Live Games with Gold lineup. We've got quite a few treats in store this week, including some Xbox 360 retail titles, as well as a couple digital-based Xbox One games.

    Firstly, Xbox One owners with Xbox Gold will be able to treat themselves with Crimson Dragon, an Xbox exclusive that saw itself as one of the few available Xbox One launch titles the day the console was released. Crimson Dragon is an indirect sequel to Panzer Dragoon, a game that made it's rounds on the Original Xbox many years ago. Crimson Dragon will be available all the way throughout the month.

    Alongside Crimson Dragon, Xbox Live gold subscribers will be able to get their hands on Strike Suit Zero: Director's Cut, which made it to reality after successfully being backed on Kickstarter. Both Xbox One games are available till August 31st.

    As for the Xbox 360, players will be able to pick up Motocross Madness, a Trials lookalike till August 15th, whilst later on in the month, Dishonored will be available from August 16th till August 31st.

    All of these games are still fairly new, so Microsoft are being pretty generous with month's round of Xbox Live free Gold games. This is possibly one of the best months we've seen since the Xbox Live Games with Gold loyalty reward program began.

  • We Might Just Be Able to Play Xbox 360 Games on the Xbox One in the Future

    New XBOX ONEBeing able to play the last generation of games on a brand new console may seem like a bit of a gimmick at first, but it is an incredibly useful feature that could help many gamers that are on a budget.

    Being able to trade in your Xbox 360 console to help cut down on the costs of the Xbox One is a great option to have, but after building up years worth of games, it may not be that easy for many gamers to give that all up. This is why Xbox 360 emulation on an Xbox One would be immensely handy. In fact, while they're at it, if Microsoft could make the Xbox One support original Xbox games as well, that'd be incredibly useful.

    Whilst Microsoft never revealed any plans to have such a feature on the Xbox One, recently Frank Savage, partner development lead at Xbox, revealed that it's not entirely out of the question. When asked whether there were plans to bring an Xbox 360 emulation system to the Xbox One, Frank replied with "There are, but we're not done thinking them through yet, unfortunately. It turns out to be hard to emulate the PowerPC stuff on the X86 stuff. So there's nothing to announce, but I would love to see it myself."

    I'm sure if Sony were to offer an Emulation system on the PS4, Microsoft would feel obliged to follow through with a similar system, and vice versa. But until one player moves, no one is going anywhere with the whole emulation thing. Let's hope that Microsoft try to put more work into it, because I'd love to see it happen.

  • Titanfall Xbox 360 Version Will Offer Players 'the True Experience'

    titanfall xbox 360Whilst Titanfall has already been out for a while on both PC and Xbox One, Respawn Entertainment did originally plan for the title to have an Xbox 360 version released on the same date, too.

    However, delays in the development for the last gen port meant that the original release date had to be pushed back for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall, but it's finally almost time for the game to release, and despite previous concerns, it's looking like it may run fairly smoothly on the old machine.

    Whilst development for the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall was handed down to Bluepoint Games, things should not be very different to the PC or Xbox One versions. Senior producer of the Titanfall 360 port, Daryl Allison, stated that despite the Xbox 360 being inferior in terms of hardware capability, the Xbox 360 version of Titanfall won't have any limitations.

    "Titanfall on the Xbox 360 is the true experience: all the maps, modes, pilots, titans, weapons, burn cards, you name it, found in the Xbox One and PC versions. The game looks great, sounds great, and above all it plays great. There are of course some differences that are due to the technical limitations of the hardware - for example, the game runs above 30fps - but the experts at Respawn worked with us to ensure that all the intense, 6v6 wall-running, titan-dropping action is there."
    This is exciting news to hear, and it looks like Xbox 360 players will be able to play the true Titanfall experience when the Xbox 360 port is released later this month.

  • 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.
