Modded Xbox 360 Controller

  • Official Red Xbox One Controller Coming

    red-xbox-one-controllerIn an interesting move to stand out from the crowd, Xbox has announced a bright and colorful red Xbox One controller.

    The new all-red controller is expected to hit the online Xbox store from January 11. By all-red, we really mean it by the way. Everything from the accents on the buttons to the chassis and bumper buttons is red. The only hint of non-red is seen on the Xbox symbol, which remains white.

    The new controller will be on sale for $64.99, and GameStop will also stock it, both online and in-store.

    This isn't the first time Xbox has attempted to offer their customers new personalization options. In the past, they released the Xbox Design Lab, which allowed players to pick out their own colors for each part of an Xbox One controller.

    Despite the selection of colors, the Xbox One Design Lab still can't trump our own Custom Controller Creator - we add a greater range of colors for selection, and also have a variety of decals and fancier graphics available for the main chassis. And let's not get started on the variety of features and mods that can make our controllers even more elite than the Elite controller itself.

    We like where you're going Xbox, but you've still got a lot of catching up to do in the custom controller game.

    Why not take a look at our custom controller creator to see how it compares to the Xbox Design lab? We'll be surprised if you disagree.

  • Upcoming Battlefield 4 DLC Will be Free

    battlefield hardline dlcBattlefield 4 has already had a season pass but DICE aren't quite done with developing content for the game just yet. However, instead of charging players extra on top of all the other additional DLC costs already tied onto Battlefield 4, DICE has made the noble choice to release all of the future DLC content for free.

    Whilst previous DLC will still cost players the same it does today, any new content created by DICE and released for Battlefield 4 from this day forwards will be absolutely free to all players.

    So far there are a lot of details that haven't been shared by DICE, but we do know that they are working on some new maps, including night time maps. The night maps should be variants of previously released maps. So far we already know that Siege of Shanghai, Zavod 311, and Golmud Railway will be receiving nighttime variants. A new community-made map is also in the works and should be released for free in the not too distant future.

    A new patch is planned for this Spring and it will come with some new content too. As well as fixing up some bugs, the Spring patch will add in five new weapons and the Gunmaster game mode.

    For those new to the Battlefield series, Gunmaster plays out just like other Gun Games. You'll start with one weapon and each kill will reward you with a new weapon. There are seventeen weapons to get through until you finally get given the knife. A knife kill will end the game.

  • Call of Duty Havoc DLC Gets Release Date

    call of duty havoc dlcIt has now been confirmed that the Call of Duty Havoc DLC, the first upcoming downloadable content pack for Advanced Warfare will be released on the 29th of this month. The new DLC pack will include a variety of new maps, as well as a few new additions, including a game mode brand new to Advanced Warfare.

    The four maps have been named as Sideshow, Urban, Core and Drift. Sideshow looks to be shanty town based within a cargo ship, whilst Urban is a city area packed with buildings. Core takes place in a sandy drilling station and Drift is in a small snow town.

    As well as the new maps, the Havoc DLC pack includes two new weapons, the AE4 Widowmaker, and a direct variation of the Widowmaker. Season pass holders were given the gun early, but those who buy the DLC without the season pass will still be able to pick up the gun when the DLC launches at the end of January.

    The last piece of content, and perhaps most exciting in the Havoc DLC is the new exo zombies mode. It's expected that the exo zombies mode will be similar to the zombie modes in previous Call of Duty games, although we will most likely see the introduction of exo zombies, which run much faster than normal zombies, to the game mode in Advanced Warfare.

    Are you looking forward to the Havoc DLC? I think the four maps will be great, and the new zombie mode just tops it off.

  • Advanced Warfare Gameplay Videos Leaked

    advanced warfare multiplayer videosA brand new set of official gameplay videos for Advanced Warfare have leaked, each showing different elements of the multiplayer gameplay associated with the game. The first video shows off a brand new remote turret score streak reward. Players will be able to place down the turret, find a quiet place to hide, and then activate the turret to control it remotely.

    In the second video, a new medal awarded in multiplayer is shown - the video shows a player getting into a large battlesuit and then killing a player to be rewarded with the "terminated" medal.

    The third video also shows off a new medal in Advanced Warfare. This medal, named Death From Above, will reward players who manage to use their jumpsuit to leap above somebody's head and take them down with a knife kill whilst airborne.

    The final video shows off the new remote turret score streak reward again - however this time it focuses on the turret weapons which can be ripped off of the turret and used on foot.

    It will be interesting to see how all of the new score streak rewards and medals will impact gameplay - hopefully there won't be anything that completely breaks the flow of the game. We'll be able to see what new score streaks are in Advanced Warfare once the game has released on November 4th, 2014.

    Advanced Warfare will be available for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Windows PC upon it's launch later this year.

  • Cliffy B Goes Back Into Video Game Development

    Cliffy B New GameA little while back Cliff Bleszinski announced plans to retire from video game development for good, but it seems he just couldn't keep away from the video game industry as he's already back at it with plans to make more video games again.

    Despite his supposed video game retirement, it's been clear for a while that Cliffy B has been working on some kind of video game project, and it looks like he plans to reveal it to the world pretty soon.

    On Bleszinski's twitter, he wrote, "I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again. Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days!"

    Whilst his previous work has been alongside AAA studios responsible for franchises like Gears of War and Unreal Tournament, it sounds likely that Cliffy B's next project will be something completely different.

    Cliff Bleszinski has already revealed a few different concept art images for a game that he has codenamed Silverstreak, so perhaps we'll hear more about this title within the next 7 days like Cliff suggested on his Twitter account.

    In or out of retirement, it's clear Cliffy B will not have any input on the next Gears of War title, which is largely where he made a name for himself. Do you think Bleszinski's next game make much of a splash? We'll have to see exactly what Cliffy B has up his sleeve before we give an answer on that one.

  • Battlefield 4 will have "Deepest Online Career Ever"

    All of the hype that has gone towards Battlefield 4 has gone straight towards the online multiplayer portion of the game, and whilst there will be a story driven campaign as always, all eyes are on online.

    DICE seem to understand that because they have put a lot of effort into making sure the Battlefield online multiplayer experience is better than any other previous game in the series. In fact, DICE are calling the online multiplayer on Battlefield their "deepest online career ever."

    So, what gives DICE such a strong pride towards their online multiplayer on Battlefield 4? Apart from the all new customizable weapons system, weapon and vehicle camo's, and the brand new progression system, there is actually quite a lot to be proud of.

     "While sharing similar basics with Battlefield 3, we are now offering a cleaner upgrade path, clearer Ribbon and Medal progression, and an increased focus on richly rewarding great team play."

    On top of the ranking system which starts at 0 and ends at 100, there will also be new redesigned ribbon awards, making all of your actions in Battlefield 4 that much more worth it.

    "We know our fans can spend literally hundreds of hours on the Battlefield. With Battlefield 4, we want to make sure players have goals to aspire to at the end game, while at the same time rewarding players at earlier ranks as well. Ribbons are the quick fixes, whether you're a veteran or a newcomer to the series."

    "You typically can get one or more of these in a single round if you perform well. They can be awarded for anything from repairing vehicles, capturing flags, or reviving team mates. There are 45 unique Ribbons in the game, and you can earn each of them an infinite number of times."

    The ribbon system was a good addition to the Battlefield online system because it added more goals to achieve within a game, and this is especially important for making those long game modes more enjoyable and more engaging.

  • GTA Online has a Great System to Trolls from Ruining your Fun

    In a big open world game that allows players to randomly kill each other at will, there has to be some kind of penalty to killing innocent players to stop the game turning into an endless large scale deathmatch.

    Rockstar did something a little different to punish continued random killings in GTA Online, and general jerkiness could end up with some terrible consequences.

    The first thing that can happen if you continue to be a jerk by quitting games, killing players and ruining other's experiences on GTA Online is that you'll start to be joined with other jerks just like you. If you keep it up, you'll be stuck playing in the time out corner of GTA Online with all the other naughty criminals who can't refrain from messing with other players.

    If you decide to start playing nicely, you'll be freed after two real days, and after that point you'll be initiated back into average people society.

    You won't be able to play with your friends after you get the 'bad sport' title, and to make things even worse, you'll have to wear a dunce hat so that everyone around you knows you've been a bad, bad kid.

    In my opinion this is a great feature for the game, and so far in my experience, I haven't come across too many 'bad sports' that continue to try and ruin my fun so it must be working quite well.

  • How to Get Past the First Mission on GTA Online

    If you're still stuck on the first mission on Grand Theft Auto Online, we've compiled a few tips that have reportedly helped other users get past the first mission. Despite talk of terrible servers and bad gameplay, it seems that as soon as you get past the first mission with Lamar, everything is very smooth.

    Here are some tips to get past the first mission on GTA Online -

    Delete your Character

    This isn't such a big problem at this stage because it's unlikely that you have any progress on your GTA Online character. To delete your GTA:O character, go into story mode, press the menu button and go to the Online tab. From here you will need to click on select character and you can then delete characters from both available slots.

    Delete the Title Update

    To do this, you will need to access your game's data from either Xbox Home or the PS3 XMB, depending on what platform you're playing GTA on. On Xbox 360 it is called "Title Update" and should be called Game Data Utility on PS3.

    Once you've deleted this, get back into the game to re-download the update and check if it makes any difference in game. Doing this in combination with deleting your character has supposedly helped some players to get past the first mission on GTA Online.

    Wriggle your way through the First Mission on GTA Online

    Even after both title updates, I still couldn't get through the game, however, I found a way to wriggle myself through, and it now works flawlessly. The method I used was on Xbox 360 and uses the recent player list. It may also work by joining a friend on PS3. This will require you to try the first mission on online before trying.

    1. Join the game from story mode
    2. Go into the Online tab from the menu
    3. Press Start a Solo session
    4. The game should hopefully load you into an online world of your own - you won't be able to do missions, or any of the cool stuff that requires other players. (If it asks about cloud servers being down, just ignore the messages and continue into the game.)
    5. Next, press the xbox dashboard button, and navigate to the recent players tab by opening your friends list.
    6. Find a recent player that is still playing GTA Online and has an open session - Press 'Join Session in Progress.'
    7. It should now join you with this player - you will be able to do a few things, but the full functionality of the game still doesn't work.
    8. To fix this, open your phone, click on quick jobs and join a random job.
    9. Once you've completed a job or a mission, open the character wheel and switch to a GTA V character.
    10. After this, switch back to your online character - it will then take you back to the first tutorial mission. However, this time it should load almost instantly.

    Still not working - Wait it out

    As much as it sucks to say this, if you still can't get past the first mission in GTA Online, your best bet is to wait it out until Rockstar iron out the bugs and server problems.

  • GTA V Performance Issues on Xbox 360 When Installing Both Discs

    Rockstar's new Grand Theft Auto V is so large that two discs are needed for the Xbox 360 version of the game. The PlayStation 3 version of the game which uses a BluRay disc that can hold more data only requires one disc.

    The two discs on the Xbox 360 version each have their own roles. There is both a "play" disc and an "install" disc, and as the name suggests, players are required to install the install disc before they can play the game with the other disc.

    Rockstar have warned Xbox 360 owners that there may be performance issues if you try to install the play disc as well. On Rockstar's support twitter account, a tweet was posted saying "For optimal performance, we recommend not installing that disc. We will have more info on our Support Site at launch." In regards to whether installing the play disc is a good idea or not.

    This also means that those who want to play the game will need to ensure they have enough space on their hard drive (8GB) and if they don't they will need to go and buy one. Alternatively, you could use a flash drive with more than 8GB available storage to store the game on. To do this you'll need to make sure it is plugged in at all times while playing and choose the storage device when installing the install disc.
