  • 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.

  • GTA San Andreas HD Now on Xbox 360

    gta san andreas hdGot any change to spare? If you have, you may want to boot up your Xbox 360 and head to the Xbox Games Store. Want to know why? Right now you will be able to find GTA: San Andreas for just a few bucks.

    The game has debuted on the Xbox 360 this week, and it comes with a range of improvements to make the game slightly better than the original.

    Firstly, the new GTA San Andreas HD has had a resolution increase, and the game now plays at 720P. Whilst it seems that Rockstar have simply upscaled the original textures, it's nice to see that the game will run smoothly on the Xbox 360 at a 720P HD resolution.

    On top of upscaling the resolution, Rockstar have also increased the in-game draw distances, which will allow players to see more area of the map at once whilst playing.

    Finally, with the debut to Xbox 360, Rockstar have added a bunch of achievements for the game that can be unlocked by playing through the story.

    The new GTA Sand Andreas HD can be picked up for just $3.74 in North America, and £2.99 in the UK. If you haven't played San Andreas before, we think that there's no reason not to pick up this game.

    The game was recently released on iPhone and Android, but it's lack of a decent control scheme easily make it a second pick when compared to the brand new HD version for Xbox 360.

  • 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.
