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

And there was a little snippet of the week’s news

Kept You Waiting Huh!! Weekly News 2nd March – 8th March

Welcome to a blog post series where we recap all the news from the past week that we found interesting or wanted to share with everyone.

Metal Gear Solid 5 Release Date

This week it was revealed that the next iteration of Metal Gear Solid would be released 1st September 2015. That date is for consoles and the PC version will release two weeks later 😦 Why Kojima why??!! Also Kojima also said that this will be the last one in the series. Do we believe him? I don’t know only time will tell as Kojima is a notorious troll.

Unreal Engine 4 is FREE!!!

For all you developers who were having doubts about opting to use Unreal Engine 4 because of its price, doubt no more. The game development engine is now free. This includes full access to all the c++ code as well. The only thing that Epic Games asks of you is that you pay 5% royalty on the gross revenue following the first $3,000 per product, per quarter. Doesn’t seem like a bad deal to us.

Street Fighter 5 Release Date…Kinda

Capcom has stated that the next Street Fighter game will be released sometime next spring. To remind everyone though the game is only in development for PC and PS4. So Xbox One owners won’t have the opportunity to play this great fighting game on their consoles sadly, but hey that’s gaming.

Leonard Nimoy

On a side not that is unrelated to gaming news. We know there has already been many tributes done for the passing of this great man last week Friday but we have yet to publicly send out our condolences to Leanard Nimoy’s family. He was a great man and an inspiration to all of us as we all grew watching Star Trek. His final tweet read :

” A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP “

Truly a great man. You will forever be in our memories. Live Long And Prosper
