TGIF: This Game Is Fun

Well it is Friday so why not have a run down of what has been fun this week.

We start this week with an update on the Final Fantasy XV film titled ‘Kingsglaive.’ Square Enix have recently updated the Japanese site  for the upcoming title with new character information and still photos; all looking a lush as the FFXV world has been so far.

The film is expected to release just before Final Fantasy XV’s launch date (30 September) and will set the pace of what is happening in Lucis whilst Noctis & friends are on their own main storyline journey.

“SOME ARE SOLDIERS, WE ARE GHOSTS. We operate far beyond legions and armies, following our own rules. We change the fate of nations from the shadows. We are legends. We are GHOSTS.”

Ubisoft this week revealed the new trailer with showing in game action alongside information on the 4 editions of ‘Ghost Recon: Wildlands’ that will be available; which are:

  • Standard
  • Deluxe
  • Gold
  • Collector

 

 

Ubisoft also advertised that any pre-orders will receive a bonus mission set in Bolivia.

On a rather nervous note, upcoming game title No Man’s Sky, has been rumoured to have been delayed. The game was set to be released on June 21st but this seems to have been pushed back. At this moment and time it is still speculation but until official information is released, we are all in limbo as to whether this ambitious game will be delayed.nomansskylore.jpg

Now to end it with some trailers. Deus Ex just released the “Mechanical Apartheid” video:

 and Fall Out 4 releases Mod’s on Xbox One first today:

Deus Ex is much loved game on this team making it one of our upcoming games of the summer. However even more importantly, this is the first time Mods have ever been on a console system — What a time to be alive.

as @majornelson said “thanks for watching… see you in the wasteland”

TGIF: This Game Is Fun

Well it is Friday so why not have a run down of what has been fun this week.

First on the list and really not a ‘game’ Star Trek is back with a new teaser trailer of their new series set to begin on CBS. The new series will be available on CBS’s on-demand/streaming platform and CBS All Access early next year. To be honest we’re not sure what to expect in terms of characters and story from the new series but it is set to have buzz around it when it airs on television.

Next up is Battleborn. They are kicking of the weekend vibes with a double XP weekend for all their players this weekend; as a bonus there is also the introduction of the latest DLC character: Alani.

Alani “the warrior-monk healer” releases officially on May 31st for all platforms and can be unlocked for 47,500 of in game credits. However, if you were lucky enough to be part of the early PS4 beta you get the character during this early access weekend and of course Digital Deluxe & Season Pass holders will be able to get Alani immediately by using a Hero Key. — Looks like they are getting set for summer with more free characters to come.

Ex Konami Game Director Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear solid, revealed his new logo’s inspiration, the full EVA (extra-vehicular activity) suit wearing Ludens. In a series of three tweets, Kojima spelled out what Ludens, a Latin participle of the root word “ludo,” which translates in English to “play,” means to the team. “Ludens, the icon of Kojima Productions,” he tweeted alongside the full picture posted below. “We’ll deliver THE NEW PLAY in THE NEW FUTURE with the cutting-edge equipment, technology, & the frontier spirit. The gear he’s wearing is the extra-vehicular activity(EVA) creative suit.”

Another minor thing in the gaming world is the upcoming E3 2016, set to showcase some of the line-up that gamers can expect from companies the likes of EA, Bethesda, Microsoft, Sony, PC Gaming Show and Ubisoft. Of course there will be other companies/Devs showcasing new technology like Samsung

The betawatch is over

maxresdefault.jpg

On the 7th of May, thanks to Meltdown London, a full day of Overwatch was playable; and boy did we play. Coming in with only a few games of experience I thought myself a noob in the making — that being said it is a beta…

Dva3Without a shadow of a doubt within a few games of Overwatch, One became a fan.

The Team Fortress/Smite feel leads to some exciting and highly hectic gameplay. from one moment you may be playing the objective only to become caught up in simply hunting and eliminating the other team.

Overwatch definitely boasts why Blizzard is a seasoned veteran in the gaming market; with gameplay being deceptively quick and concise (meaning when you lose it’s not long til you want to jump back in.) A plethora of characters to choose from to fit your fighting styles. So whether you are a defence type (Bastion), speedy type (Tracer) or straight up powerhouse (Rinehart), there’s a character for you.

Dvabae

I found that my adoration of Mechs led to the obvious choice of mech wielding gamer girl D.VA

So if you get a chance, do try out Overwatch when it is released this month on May 24th

 

 

I hear we do games

Hey guys and girls, after the longest sabbatical gaming news is going to be back on this; so without rambling too much lets pretend CMedia has been here since LittleRocket came back ^_^

So let’s begin with the current hype:

image

If you didnt know, Nintendo’s anticipated next gen console (the NX) is set to be realesed in the month of March 2017 — and yet it wont be at E3 2016… what do you think?

Did you enjoy Borderlands? With their release of Battleborn, the Borderlands creator’s wanted to see if they could do something fresh
image

But with Overwatch beta testing looming around the victor of this Arena style gaming throne is yet to be decided. Look out for a closer look at Overwatch in the coming days.

image
On the other end of the spectrum Street Fighter V has been allowing players to enjoy the classic character Guile as the latest addition to the current character roster. With the rumoured infinite combo! (46 hit combo if you’re good enough.) He looks back with more than just his comb…. “Sonic Boom.”
image

And just to leave you with fresh new, November shall again see the return of Infinity Ward with Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare:

 

And with that, look out for more gaming news. And with the current line up this AND next year; this will be fun.

Bethesda Reveal: DLC Plans & Mods Confirmed For PS4

Fallout 4 is just two months away, which will likely speed by faster than we realize. With release approaching, Bethesda has revealed some of its plans for post-launch support.

As you might expect, there will be DLC coming down the road. Add-ons will start to appear in early 2016, but details are sparse right now. A season pass will be available for $30, with a guarantee that it will save at least $10 for those who purchase it.

We’ve known that mod support is coming for PC, with curated selections coming to Xbox One after. We now know that PlayStation 4 users will be getting those same mods, but some time after they hit Xbox One. The creation kit won’t be available on PC until early in 2016, so don’t expect these to start flowing to console for a number of months.

Finally, Bethesda says it will be tapping the community for its own post-launch updates. The developer references its work enhancing Skyrim with mounted combat, kill cams, and legendary mode as examples of what might be coming for Fallout 4. The company says it will listen to the community to help direct its efforts.

We still don’t know much about Fallout 4, and that’s by design. Bethesda is keeping story and gameplay out of our hands for now, in hopes that players get to discover it themselves. We’ll be exploring Boston’s wasteland together come November 10 on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.

For more on Fallout 4, you can read our extensive breakdown of the attendee-only demo from QuakeCon.

Pretty interesting developments so far for this highly anticipated title from Bethesda, more information to come as it is released

here’s the trailer just incase you forgot it

ciao-su =^_^=

Been silent. But no more. First Batman

While Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice stars both Ben Affleck’s Caped Crusader and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel, rumor has it Warner Bros. is looking to minimise Cavill’s presence in favor of shining more of the spotlight on Affleck.

According to Heroic Hollywood, the studio is requesting that more Batman footage be added to the film, while cutting down on the screen time afforded to Superman. Apparently Affleck’s Batman is so impressive, he’s outshining Cavill’s Man of Steel.

Earlier this year, a report claimed, Ben Affleck will be directing and starring in a solo Batman movie. Thanks to Nolan’s successful trilogy of Batman films and the popularity of Rocksteady’s Arkham games, there’s no doubt Warner is banking heavily on Affleck’s take on the character.

Do you think Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice should focus more on the Dark Knight at the cost of Superman’s screen time?

more to come as it is released

E3 ‘the gaming Mecca’ : Day 0

e3-header-overlay-latest

Ubisoft were third on the line up of press conference shows on Day 0 & with the current hype over just a few of their franchise games that are expected to come out, Ubisoft had a cool show in mind and we all knew it.

Ubisoft kept theirs short and sweet. Most of their games are multi-platform and so, like EA, they got to show off their own franchises in the best light:

First up was Rainbow Six: Siege

then Just Dance 2016

then Anno: 2205

then For Honor

also up Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate

One unexpected piece of the Ubisoft Gold was:

then some more on the upcoming start in the Tom Clancy legacy, The Division

and to end, like Tom Clancy isn’t smiling enough upstairs, Ghost Recon: WildLands

nice, short and sweet. The way Ubisoft always does it

keep on following as always

E3 ‘the gaming Mecca’ : Day 0

e3-header-overlay-latest
Day 0 of E3 was not Microsoft’s day alone as next up was Electronic Arts; most commonly known in today’s world as EA – “it’s in the game”

With collaborations across the various platforms EA were there to show that just because they make games for both console giants doesn’t mean they can’t impress just as well. Choosing to start from the top they began with the introduction of NEED FOR SPEED :

need for speedThis title featured a return to what is great about the franchise in all the forms it has been given to us before in the form of being an icon in each of the five things that make the franchise fun.

  • Speed – Speed is the connection that exists between car and driver that is only present at top speeds. It’s about keeping your nerve and never lifting off the gas. It’s about the adrenaline rush of taking a corner at high speed, having faith that your car will hold firm and not loose grip. The fearless always push the limits.
  • Style – Style is pure expression through driving, sending your car into a corner sideways with ultimate precision. It’s the feeling of freedom for that split second as your tires leave the ground, when you find yourself in a place where only you and the car exist. For some, style is all that matters.
  • Build – Build is where you take your car to the extreme through both visual and performance modification. The constant need to improve and personalize, shaping the car to your own vision. Craftsmen build, searching for perfection.
  • Crew – Ride together with your Crew and never hit the streets alone. Put your faith in others as bumpers come within inches of one another. This is the skill of close proximity chaos.
  • Outlaw – Become an Outlaw, messing with and escaping from the cops. Always looking to raise the stakes through risk vs reward driving, pushing the limits and looking over your shoulder. Live life on the edge as you crave the thrill of the chase.

EA boasted the seamless integration of actors and game elements within scenes & gameplay. From this the introduction to their Star Wars The Old Republic: Knights of the Fallen Empire

this fan favourite was said to be created with the fans requests in mind, with the want of more BioWare like choice based gameplay (play Mass Effect/Dragon Age if you are unsure what we mean) that determines outcomes in your story at pivotal points.

Another point of interest was the unveiling of the new IP unravel:

Using yarn like mechanics the game focuses on expressing the puzzle solutions in the different style, similar to LittleBig Planet but not ‘sickbay’ style. Also EA were of course showing of the 16’s of their sports gaming franchises:

golf 2016

and of course

Thats enough of the re-skinned gaming as EA really did fire on all cylinders this year with more trailers and gameplay footage, hope you enjoy:

February 2016 –

This wasn’t the only game on everyone’s mind with the soon to be released star wars film; Battlefront was in the air… then on screen:

The latter stages of EA’s press conference was their display of mobile applications syncing and sometimes enhancing their entertainment features with partner apps like the FIFA Ultimate Team 2015. This is a concept that will be ambitiously put to use with their Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic title, called Star Wars: Galaxy of heroes.

Electronic Arts are really making sure to keep up both on both console’s and on their own success as last year Titanfall was the talk of E3

E3 “the gaming Mecca”: Day 0

e3-header-overlay-latest

E3 began yesterday (CET) with a power packed schedule of a day. The usuals were all in attendance with Microsoft appearing and displaying their own work first & of course Sony’s Playstation there as the other powerhouse in the gaming/entertainment field.

mslogoWith so much to go through, here’s a list of titles that Microsoft showed at their press conference:

Before we begin on the games; the most important news from Microsoft was arguably this —

  • Xbox One will finally have BACKWARD COMPATIBILITY
  • not only that but it will allow MULTIPLAYER WITH XBOX 360 GAMES ON THE XBOX ONE
  • And finally Elite accessories (if you are a pro gamer this is heaven to you. your fighting stick is now the Xbox Elite Pad)

First out the Xbox was Halo 5: Guardians, which housed a gameplay display with Halo5_KeyArt_Horiz_Finalspartan Locke’s squad. New game mechanics like in game reviving of squad members, air melee kills, some new weapons and a return of the Prometheans. To top it off a new game mode called warren where anything goes. From assault rifles to pelicans. Fight, win and survive the warden. The warden mode is a 24 vs 24 battle (24 players and 24 AI opponents.)

Recore was then given is first breath of life with a demo gameplay trailer being shown from the makers of Metroid Prime and Keiji InafunerecoreThe game appears to focus of a journey between a female protagonist (oh yeah. not a guy for once) and her faithful companion to go somewhere… we don’t know but we will give all the info as it arrives.

Bethesda made a showing (makers of the Fall Out series) with a display of how Microsoft feel PC should link to console. Bethesda verified that with their new upcoming release, Fall Out 4, modifications (mods) made on the PC version can be transferred over to the Xbox One system.

ea early accesspvzgw2-logo

EA also came to the stage to show their EA access which allows early access to titles for a set amount of time and surprised us with Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare 2

Next on the menu was show off time with titles like FORZA MOTORSPORT 6DARK SOULS 3, THE DIVISION exclusive Xbox beta, Rainbow 6: SiegeDAY Z xbox versionRISE Of THE TOMB RAIDERGEARS OF WAR ULTIMATE EDITIONSPEEDRUNNERS XBOX VERSION  and a host of indie titles as included within the Xbox family ethos (Yeah. They meant business.)

gears 4The Coalition made a showing with Gears of War: Ultimate Edition as mentioned before but as the makers  of the Gears Series they did not leave without dropping the rumoured Gears 4. With a new story The Coalition have began to continue the franchise; as the information comes we will inform you on the latest on this game.

The real icing on the cake was Microsofts hardware as they showed off their Oculus tech but more importantly went the step further and introduced the power of the Holo Lens in real time. Not much to be said just enjoy:

All in all a good showing by the Microsoft team in their press conference showing, with the boast of their ‘biggest’ year line up to date with this year’s releases including: Tomb Raider, Gears of War 4, Fable and Halo 5

look out for the other posts on Ubisoft, EA and of course Playstation

Will you join us?

I’m sure we are not alone as some of you who also follow Ubisoft received the invite to view the next release in the Assassin’s Creed series. What did you make of the image? What era do you think “everything is permitted” in now?

Well here’s what we know:

The character definitely bares the attire of Victorian England
However only seems to use ONE wrist blade (very strange for an Assassin)
And the character dons brass knuckles & a cane (a touch of class ^_^ )
But all in all the most modern kit seen in the series to date
All in all if this is a Victorian England adventure then we may just be giving Jack the Ripper a run for his money… or was he an Assassin as well; he was never caught…

pure speculation but all we know is we’re continuing in the order

Won’t you join us?

more news to follow as usual
