  • New God of War Announcement Soon?

    So although we may not be hearing news of a new God of War next gen game just yet, Sony Santa Monica has shown a teaser of something new for the God of War franchise. Sony Santa Monica took to Twitter to post an Instagram teaser video of something that looked like a new addition to God of War: Ascension.

    The link has now been removed for some reason, but the video did show some footage of God of War that hinted at some kind of 'arena mode.'

    Sony Santa Monica followed with another Instagram teaser video, but once again the video has been removed.

    If I could make an educated guess, I'd say the new teaser will be released within the next month and will be a new DLC add-on to God of War: Ascension that will add some kind of combat based multiplayer battle arena. I could be wrong, but that is certainly what the videos seemed to show.

    For now we'll just have to wait to see just exactly what will happen, but a new God of War game reveal is certainly off the 2013 radar for now at least, but I don't doubt that there will be a new God of War game for the PlayStation 4 at some point in the future.

  • DICE Working Hard on Star Wars: Battlefront

    Fans were a little disappointed when Lucasarts officially closed down and Disney took control of Lucusfilms. Many gamers expected that this meant there were not going to be any more Star Wars themed games, but DICE shocked us all at E3 with a small 20 second teaser revealing Star Wars: Battlefront, a game that has long been wanted by many gamers and Star Wars fans alike.

    EA games label president Frank Gibeau has talked a little about DICE's progress on the game at EA's FY14 Q1 earnings call and stated that "The DICE team is well into development on that product already, so we feel very bullish about our shooter rotation over the next several years."

    Gibeau also went on to saying that Battlefront 3 will have a third-person component to it, hinting that the third game in the series will offer both third-person and first-person just like the previous games.

    A release window hasn't been given on the game, but we can definitely expect to hear more about it soon, and I would guess the game would arrive late 2014 or early 2015.

  • Xbox One Will Offer Unlimited Cloud Storage to Xbox Live Gold Members

    One thing that Microsoft won't seem to drop when it comes to the Xbox One is the phrase "the power of the cloud." I've personally seen time and time again an Xbox One representative praise this power but apart from Forza Motorsport 5, we haven't really seen any reason to believe that there really is any power within the cloud, at least as far as the Xbox One is concerned.

    I do hope that this changes in the future, and Microsoft will hopefully reveal more uses for their cloud capabilities as the Xbox One grows.

    One such use has been revealed, and it will allow Xbox One owners to store an unlimited amount of data on their Xbox One straight to the cloud.

    This is a similar feature already seen on the Xbox 360, however, Xbox Live gold members will be given unlimited storage as a benefit of being a paying Xbox subscriber instead of just 512mb. Microsoft has stated that -

    "Xbox Live offers Xbox One unlimited storage space in the cloud for all Xbox Live Gold members to store numerous types of Xbox Live content, including your profile, games, Achievements and entertainment. This content is stored and saved in the cloud so you can automatically access it anywhere, anytime, no matter where you are."

    The statement did include the word 'games' so it'll be interesting to see if we'll be capable of installing full games to the cloud or not.

  • Soulcaliber II HD Online Announced for 2013 Release

    Namco Bandai have taken to this year's San Diego Comic-con to announce the release of their new HD remake for Soulcaliber II.

    A trailer has been shown to highlight the differences between the original game that was released for Xbox, PlayStation 2 and Gamecube, and the new HD remake that will be making it's way to Xbox 360 and PS3 later this year.

    The new Soulcaliber II HD Online will have a brand new online multiplayer system allowing players to battle with others online, and will have a newly remastered graphical update to better suit today's hardware.

    The trailer has shown footage of Hehachi from Tekken, a guest character in the original game, however footage of Link from Zelda and Todd Mcfarlane's Spawn was not in the footage, giving many the assumption that these two characters won't be making an appearance in Soulcaliber II HD Online.

    A lot of angry Wii U owners have vented their frustration online, stating that there should be a Wii U version that includes Link as a playable character.

    It's unlikely Namco Bandai will bring out a Wii U version, however the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will be launched this Fall, 2013.

  • New Dead Rising 3 Could be a Huge Open World

    If you've watched the E3 trailer for Dead Rising 3, you'll know that there is a lot to be excited about. For me, it would be one of the only games i'd want an Xbox One at launch for. The first two Dead Rising games were fun but the areas you roamed became a little dull after spending 10 odd hours within them.

    It's good to know that Dead Rising 3 will have an open world that is capable of accommodating both the spaces within Dead Rising 1 and Dead Rising 2 combined. This also didn't account for the extra 'room to spare' on top of the space capable of accommodating the first two games Josh Bridge has talked about at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

    Executive Produced of the series, Bridge also went on to discuss a few other things about Dead Rising 3 such as "an unmatched level of weapon and character customization, and immersive Xbox SmartGlass and Kinect integration, Dead Rising 3 delivers a heart-pounding experience unlike any other as players fight for survival in a massive, open world teeming with thousands of undead."

  • New Borderlands 2 DLC and Level Cap Increase

    If you're still playing through all of the extra content Gearbox has released for Borderlands 2, we're just giving you a quick nudge to let you know that you won't be close to completing it any time soon. Why? Because Gearbox has just announced another DLC content update and level cap increase.

    The new update will add the Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 which will cost $5 and will allow players to level their characters to level 72. This new pack will also add a new fighting zone that will pit you off against waves of enemies you wouldn't usually see fighting alongside each other.

    On top of this, a new mission will be released in time for Halloween called Headhunter Pack: T.K. Baha's Bloody Harvest. This mission will follow the story of T.K. Baha, a character first seen in Borderlands 1 and will end with a boss fight against Jacquest O' Lantern. Players will be able to unlock new customization options throughout the mission.

    Gearbox has also released some new heads for Borderlands 2 that fit in with Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, and it's clear to see that Gearbox has filled this game with 100s of hours of gameplay past the original hours of playtime first available at the launch of the game.

    If you're a fan of the robust weapon options in Borderlands 2, you will want to check up on our Controller Creator that gets updated on a weekly basis.

  • The Witcher 3 Will Be Beautiful on PS4 and Xbox One

    The Witcher series has always been one renowned for it's graphical fidelity, but the problem here is that as a console owner you're going to get the kind of people that like to boast about how amazing their PC version is when it comes to graphics.

    It's true that there is a ton more power in gaming PCs than there is in the Xbox 360 and PS3, but Witcher devs believe they'll be able to do something special with next generation consoles.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be very impressive on both the PS4 and the Xbox One if the Polish developers are to be trusted. Konrad Tomaszkiewicz, the game director of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has said, "We're creating a really big game for three major platforms at the same time - if something's a challenge it's that. Additionally, developing on next-gen consoles is always a process to look forward to - working to get the max out of the hardware and thinking how one can creatively use the technology is always a blast."

    Perhaps those with the most powerful PCs will still be able to find a way to boast when Witcher 3 comes out, but there's no denying the fact that now with the additional hardware power of both the PS4 and the Xbox One, Witcher 3 will look amazing on the big TV.

    The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC some time in 2014.

  • GTA V Info on Animals and Pets Revealed

    A Japanese magazine, Famitsu, has published an issue that includes an interview with Rockstar. Within the interview, Famitsu goes on to giving details about some so far unspoken of features within the Grand Theft Auto V universe.

    Like seen in the gameplay trailer, animals will play a part in Grand Theft Auto V. According to Famitsu, there will be more than 15 animals within the game. Some of which players will encounter in the wild, and will be available to hunt. Players will also be able to get a pet dog and give that dog new accessories. The dog can be lost, although we're not sure whether this means the dog can be killed or whether it can be 'misplaced' within the game, and whether you'll be able to get a new dog is currently unknown.

    Players will also be able to play underwater for the first time, and Grand Theft Auto V even has an underwater story mission. This mission will be played out by Trevor and Michael with jet skis.

    Famitsu also confirmed the Japanese release date for GTA V to be October 10, 2013. The rest of the world will be getting the game on September 17th this year.

  • Mad Max Developers Release Next-Gen Reveal Trailer

    Avalanche Studios, the same development team behind the Just Cause games, have posted screen shots leading up to their reveal trailer release. The trailer was released on Sunday and shows almost 2 minutes of a narrated dramatic video that shows one man walking through the barren wasteland desert.

    The video also went on to showing some vehicle footage, combat footage, and then at the end exploding into a action filled environment that we've come to expect from Avalanche Studios.

    Mad Max is set to be an open world action game set in post apocalyptic Australia and will be released in 2014 and will be playable on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC and next gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

    Avalanche studios has also released the two screen shots used to build hype up to reveal trailer as high resolution images.

  • Assassin's Creed 2 is Now Available for Free with Xbox Live Gold

    As expected, Microsoft has now made Assassin's Creed 2 available to download for free for a limited period of time. This game is part of the "Games with Gold" program that is strictly for Xbox Live users with a Gold membership.

    The Games with Gold program seems to be Microsoft's way of challenging PlayStation's PS Plus subscription service that has offered free games since launch. Many also believe that Microsoft are doing the Games with Gold campaign to try and claw back any customers they may have lost at their terrible pre-E3 event.

    Although Assassin's Creed 2 is pretty old now, it still stands as a good, enjoyable game, and when not for free, can cost $20 to download digitally from the Xbox marketplace. However second copies from retailers such as Gamestop are probably selling the game for less than $10, and perhaps even less than $5 depending on the demand for the old game.

    Players have so far managed to grab Fable III, Defense Grid: The Awakening and Assassin's Creed 2 for free.
