  • No Man's Sky Getting an Update - Worth Revisiting?

    no man's sky atlas rising updateSurprise, surprise - No Man's Sky is getting a big update and it may even make the game worth a revisit.

    When No Man's Sky first launched, it was eaten into by the gaming community because of the developer behind the game, Hello Games, vastly under delivered. They broke many promises about the content of the game.

    For example, Hello Games mentioned that No Man's Sky would have multiplayer, and the game would have a universe where players could leave their mark. Both of these features were quickly debunked as soon as No Man's Sky launched.

    In the new update, No Man's Sky will be getting some kind of story that serves to piece together the game's existing content and provide players with more of a reason to explore.

    The new update is called Atlas Rises, and it is available to all No Man's Sky players for free. The patch notes for Atlas Rises haven't yet been revealed, but the most notable features include a brand new story and a quick travel feature that will allow players to travel between worlds quickly.

    When the patch notes are released for Atlas Rises, we'll share more on this brand new update. Do you think a brand new story could be enough to get players to return to No Man's Sky?

    Let us know your thoughts on No Man's Sky and Hello Games by leaving a comment below. We'd love to hear your opinions.

  • Southeast Asia Major Details for Street Fighter V

    southest asia major 2017 sfvThe Southeast Asia scene for fighting games is growing even stronger. We now have more details about the Southeast Major for Street Fighter V.

    The Southeast Asia Major is considered to be the largest event in the region, and it gained a lot of attention last year. We're expecting to see the Southeast 2017 Major be even bigger

    This year, the Southeast Asia Major will take place at GameStart 2017 in Suntec City, Singapore, on October 14. The event will end on October 15.

    It won't just be Street Fighter at the SE major this year. Players from three different games will be making their way to the event. Street Fighter V is, of course, the biggest game to make a return this year with the Capcom Pro Tour 2017. We'll also see an event for the Tekken World Tour Asia Pacific Regional Championships and the Windjammers Asia Championships.

    Street Fighter V players will be fighting for a chance at a $30,000 prize pool. The Tekken 7 tournament will have a total of $15,000 up for grabs, and the Windjammers tournament has $6,500 on the line.

    Guilty Gear XRD REV 2 and BlazBlue Central Fiction will also be getting their own, smaller events.

    Prizes for each event will be split between players, with the grand final winner receiving the majority of the prize pool money.

    Are you interested in the Southeast Major? Will you just be watching Street Fighter V or will you be keeping an eye on Tekken 7 or other games as well?

  • eSports May Join Paris 2024 Olympics

    FILE PHOTO - The logo of the Paris candidacy for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games is seen on the Montparnasse tower in PariseSports is growing at an incredible rate. It's a new industry that showcases the competitive potential of gamers across the world.

    While it hasn't traditionally been seen as a sport, many professional sports players and sports bodies are starting to respect eSports as a sport that takes dedication, practice, and sportsmanship, just like any physical sport.

    The next milestone for eSports is for the Olympics to accept it as a sport. The next Olympics event will happen in Paris in 2024. Paris has mentioned that they believe eSports does deserve a spot on the Olympic stage.

    Their argument is that the youth are very interested in eSports as a whole, and it should be considered a sport when taking the competitive environment of eSports into account.

    The difficulty with an eSports Olympic event is that in the current eSports space, competitive players and teams are very stretched between events as it is. Players and teams are often forced to pick between events and the deciding factor is usually down to prize money.

    It's unlikely that the Olympic eSports event will have prize money on the line, so getting the best of the best players to attend will be difficult. Another issue is that eSports spans across dozens of different games. Deciding a single game to be showcased at the Olympics would be incredibly difficult. Alternatively, supporting too many games may be seen as a bad choice, which would give less weight to the medals earned from traditional sports.

  • Xbox One Support for Original Xbox Games Still Coming

    xbox one original xbox supportWhile it may have been some time since Xbox originally announced backward compatibility for original Xbox games, it's been reiterated recently that the feature is still being worked on.

    Phil Spencer was the person to step up and speak about the progress that's currently being made for the backward compatibility feature.

    When asked about whether Xbox would make any announcements about original Xbox compatibility, Phil Spencer responded by saying "I hope to bring more on Original Xbox backward compatibility this year, yes."

    By this comment, it sounds like the feature is still in the works and it may be some time before it's finalized. There may be some blocks that could potentially slow down the project, but if we're fortunate, we may get more finalized details about an expected release date for the feature before the end of the year.

    It's already been previously confirmed that original Xbox games will run better and look nicer on the Xbox One. While games won't have texture overhauls, their frame rates will be improved thanks to the increased performance of the Xbox One over the original Xbox.

    There will be a library of games available for original Xbox compatibility, starting with Crimson Skies and Fuzion Frenzy. The library of compatible original Xbox games won't be as extensive as the Xbox 360 compatible library, but it'll without a doubt feature some of the most popular original Xbox titles.

  • New Starfire Character DLC for Injustice 2 Released

    starfire injustice 2 DLCA brand new character for Injustice 2 has finally made its way into the game. The new character is called Starfire and is based on the DC character of the same name.

    Starfire is a character from the Teen Titans universe, so it's interesting to see her make her way into a brutal 3D fighting game.

    In Injustice 2, Starfire is grown up and ready to beat any opponents that challenge her.

    Starfire is designed to be a character suitable for beginner players. Her move set is very simple when compared to other Injustice 2 characters, which should make it easier for newer players to master her.

    Starfire will be available for free to anybody that owns the Injustice 2 Deluxe or Ultimate editions. Alternatively, if you own Fighter Pack 1, you'll also have access to Starfire. If you have neither of the things above, you'll have to purchase Starfire separately.

    There are a number of shaders available for Starfire, including one that makes her look like her sister, Blackfire.

    Starfire is marked as the third and final fighter for Fighter Pack 1. Soon, Netherrealm will announce all three characters for Fighter Pack 2. According to Netherrealm’s Ed Boon, players will be very excited to see the three characters in Fighter Pack 2, and the last one should have a big 'wow' factor amongst Injustice and DC fans across the globe.

    Will you be playing Starfire at all now that she's available to play in Injustice 2?

  • New Summer Overwatch Skins Released

    summer overwatch skins 2017The new Overwatch Summer 2017 season has begun, and it has brought a number of summer themed skins to the game. These new skins are available in the game right now, alongside some other summer themed content.

    The new Summer Overwatch 2017 skins are perhaps the most colorful skins yet. Soldier: 76 is the first on the list to receive a new summer skin; he's got a red Hawaiian shirt on and a new 'A-Salt' Rifle for his primary weapon.

    Mercy has been transformed into a Greek goddess with her new 'Nike goddess' skin. Reaper is ready to hit some sick flips in his new BMX biker themed skin. Next up in the list is Widowmaker, who's received a classy bikini skin.

    Sombra is getting a summer snorkeling outfit. Junkrat has been given a Cricket suit, and McCree is given a lifeguard outfit.

    The new Summer Skins and Summer features are available right now. They'll remain in the game until August 29.

    You'll also be able to use this month as a chance to get the skins that were released for Overwatch last Summer. The skins from last year are also now available at a reduced price, so make sure to jump on that deal to get cheaper skins for Lucio, Tracer and more.

    If the Overwatch 2017 Summer season isn't exciting enough, Lucioball has also made a return. If you want a break from ranked play on Overwatch, Lucioball is the perfect place to do it. This game mode is without a doubt one of the most fun game modes to make its way into Overwatch so far.

  • New Battlefield 1 Specialization System Coming

    battlefield 1 specialization systemThe Specialization system in Battlefield 1 is soon to get a complete rework and it'll completely change the balancing of the game, hopefully for the better.

    Specializations have been in Battlefield since the very beginning, but surprisingly they never made it into Battlefield 1. Well, with an upcoming update, they'll finally make their way into Battlefield 1.

    Players will be able to pick up to three perks at once, from a collection of 15 different perks.

    The new perk and specialization system will first make its way to the PC public test environment for the community and developer testing. It may then take some time for any issues to be ironed out before it's pushed to all live servers on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

    To begin with, Battlefield 1 will give players the three same specializations to play with. This may change in the future, but for now, players will have decreased damage from explosives, reduced suppression, and quicker heal regeneration. Players will then need to play more and complete Service Assignments to unlock the rest of the 15 specializations.

    If you are on the PC and would like to take part in the community test so that you can try out the specializations early, you'll need to go to the Battlefield 1 website and sign up. It should be noted that once you've signed up, you'll only be able to play on specific community tests servers when playing the community test version. You won't have access to these specializations on the standard servers.

  • Tekken 7 Player Knee Gets Signed With ROX

    tekken 7 knee roxROX has taken their first steps into the world of fighting games by signing legendary Tekken 7 player Knee.

    Knee is a South Korean Tekken 7 player that's currently considered to be amongst the very best. Knee is a very respected Tekken player, and many in the Tekken community will often look up to him and his fighter tier lists.

    After Knee's recent performance at the 2017 Evolution Championship Series, in which Knee placed third, ROX approached Knee with a deal. As expected, Knee happily took the deal and he's now a part of the ever-growing ROX family.

    Knee has pulled in wins and trophies from around the world in Tekken tournaments since 2007. 10 years later, Knee is still going strong and he's still considered to be one of the best players, if not the best, in the scene.

    ROX made a statement on the recent acquisition of Knee. "We were impressed with Knee's consistent level of play and his ability to perform at the highest level for over a decade now," said Eliot Namgung, Director of Esports for ROX Gaming. "His personality, skill level and class all align with the ideals that ROX instills in its players and teams."

    Knee also made his own statement, mentioning that Knee will try even harder now that he's joined the ROX family. Does this mean we'll be seeing Knee going in even harder in future events? That'd certainly be exciting to see.
