Quantum Break is AWESOME (opinion)

Yeah, yeah the game got mixed reviews. Some liked it, some disliked it and apparently not many loved it. I think a review said it perfectly by saying “There is nothing like it and there probably won’t be again”. Here is why:

Art direction

The art direction is great but not because the characters and environments look detailed. It’s because of the effects that are applied to them. For example when a fracture happens (time literally breaks ) everything becomes well… broken. Lets just say the pictures do it no justice. In motion everything looks pretty crazy. We really wonder how Remedy managed to create this effect.

Sound design

Now we think the sound design of this game greatly complements the art direction. The way the sound clipped and cracks when you use your dash power. The bass drops that accompany your time freeze bubble. There is this crazy scene where a massive broken ship comes down on the main character. A time fracture happens which creates a volatile environment of breaking metal that reverses back and forth on your path. The sounds you hear in this scene are just ear melting. Watch the scene here

TV Show

Now leading up to the release we were confused on how they were going to tie a game and a tv show together. The show itself is actually pretty interesting. The style we feel has this modern feel like what you would expect from shows like person of interest. If you take it as seriously as it asks you to, we feel you would enjoy it.

These are just a few points we feel makes this game worth while to check out. You can find our playthrough here. Thanks for reading and keep being awesome

It is a sad sad time in the gaming industry when one of it’s parts decide to close down but that is the unfortunate case for Spark Unlimited.

According to a report from Polygon, Spark Unlimited, the studio behind Lost Planet 3, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, and Call of Duty: Finest Hour, has laid off all of its employees and is no longer developing video games.

The studio’s chief technical officer John Butrovich told Polygon, “it’s the end of Spark as a game developer.” Butrovich also said that the important members of the team declined to move on to other things and that all of the company’s games, including a free-to-play title, were canceled, leading to the shutdown.

We can only hope the people affected by this decision move onto better things

Jared Leto has revealed he’s gaining weight to play The Joker in the upcoming Suicide Squad movie.Suicide-Squad-Comic-Logo-Movie

Speaking to Billboard magazine, Leto branded the character a “beautiful disaster” before saying how comics are evolving to include characters that are almost Shakespearean in their sSQ new 52cope.

“I’m trying to gain a lot of weight,” he told the outlet while eating vegan tacos. “It means I have to eat every couple of hours — and I’m terrible at eating a lot.

“The opportunity to take on this nearly Shakespearean character — that’s what graphic novels and comic books are becoming, right? This beautiful disaster of a character — what a big challenge.”

David Ayer will direct Suicide Squad, which also stars Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, and Cara Delevingne. Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis and Jesse Eisenberg are also in various stages of negotiations to join the cast. Filming begins in April, with a planned release date of August 5, 2016.

Capcom x Sega: Worlds Unite

Worlds Unite -- Sonic & Mega manLast year, Archie Comics announced that they were planning another crossover between their Mega Man and Sonic the Hedgehog comics in 2015. The big twist with Worlds Unite is that the traditional Mega Man and Sonic casts will be joined by characters from the Mega Man X and Sonic Boom games. But as it turns out, even that just scratches the surface of this epic crossover. World Unite will bring together a number of popular franchises from both Sega and Capcom.

Characters revealed: Sonic, Mega Man, Mega Man X, Sticks, Alex Kidd, Billy Hatcher, Nina (Breath of Fire), Viewtiful Joe,Nights, Tyris Flare (Golden Axe), Red Arremer (Ghosts ‘n Goblins), Amaterasu (Okami), Ryu, Vyse (Skies of Arcadia), Base Wing (Panzer Dragoon), Gore Magala (Monster Hunter 4)

This endeavour looks to be the revival these two characters desperately need to be portrayed properly for core fans
