  1. Sony Not Implementing Backwards Compatibility o...

    It seems that Sony has no current plans to follow in Xbox's footsteps with a backwards compatibility update to their current gen console.

    Microsoft made a daring move this E3 with the announcement that over the next few years Xbox 360 titles will become playable on the Xbox One, and most expected their competitor Sony to do the same. Apparently not, as reported by GameSpot.com, Sony has no plans for a system of backwards compatibility on the PS4. They commented on the announcement, saying it must have been, "challenging" to pull it off. They said that their current system of compatibility, the PlayStationNOW subscription service, will stay in effect. "Backward compatibility is hard," Sony executive Shuhei Yoshida explained. "I won't say we'll never do it, but it's not an easy thing to do. If it was easy we would have done that." Shuhei also stated that Sony wanted to focus on building new experiences rather than holding on to older ones.

  2. Halo 5: Guardians E3 Wrap-Up

    The official Xbox E3 2015 conference has given us a wealth of new details to get excited about for Halo 5: Guardians! Let's dive right in.

    E3 2015 began with a bang as Bonnie Ross, a member of 343 Industries, walked on stage and set up the Halo 5 Story Trailer reveal, found on YouTube.com. The trailer shows Chief hunting something down, as Locke and his team prepare to take him on, receiving begrudging help from the Arbiter and his faction. Buck and Locke speak about the Master Chief and the price that comes with hunting him down, as they are all led to one specific location, to find Chief, the Covenant, and the Guardians. The gameplay footage showed off a new weapon, similar to the Plasma Launcher from Halo Reach, but more compact, as well as team gameplay in action. It also showed just how ruthless Fireteam Osiris is in their efforts to track the Chief down, only being stopped by a large Promethean figure who tells them they are not allowed to enter, unlike the Chief, before the demo ends.

    Multiplayer is shown off in a brand new BTB style mode called Warzone. This will take place on extremely large maps with 12 v 12 players, along with numerous NPCs. The game seems to begin with you and your team being dropped off in multiple Pelicans unto the battlefield as you fight with an array of weapons and vehicles. The game footage also hints at allied NPCs with marine chatter and red hunters possibly aligned to red team. Along with this, the Mantis seems to be back in action, very similar to it's precursor self. Along with the Mantis, a new Promethean air vehicle was demonstrated, possibly being player driven. The trailer can be seen on Xbox's YouTube.com channel, and is playable at E3.

  3. Dishonored 2 Accidentally Revealed on Bethesda...

    Bethesda seems to have accidentally revealed it's new Dishonored project during a test stream in preparation for E3 2015.

    When it launched in 2012, the new Bethesda and Arkane Studios project Dishonored was hailed as a fantastic mixture of Assassin's Creed's core gameplay and a beautifully dark world full of mystery and shadows. If like myself, you were a fan of that world, you'll be excited to hear that Dishonored 2 seems to be happening, as shown in Bethesda's E3 test stream done today. Sourced from GameSpot.com, during the stream, the words 'Dishonored' and 'Harvey' were picked up by the microphone, Harvey being in reference to the first game's co-director Harvey Smith. Smith has been confirmed to be working with Arkane again on another project, but the exact nature is unknown, which leads this all to circle together as confirming a new Dishonored. Bethesda spoke out about the test run on Twitter, saying the run had gone just as planned, which could be a red herring. Until tomorrow, nothing is certain, but it seems Dishonored will be making an appearance at E3.

  4. Assassin's Creed Victory Teaser - Announcem...

    It's official - Assassin's Creed Victory is in the works for a reveal on May 12th, and you can RSVP now to see it first.

    As a huge Assassin's Creed fan, I was perplexed when I noticed that E3 was fast approaching and no official Assassin's Creed Victory announcement had been made. If you were like me, then May 12th is going to be a great day for Assassin's Creed according to the game's official website and Twitter.com account. Ubisoft released a teaser showing an Assassin in midnight black robes with gold lining, holding a staff with a vulture's head in one hand, and a hidden blade being released in the other, to the sound of thunder. The tagline is 'Oppression Has To End' and seems to hint at another revolution style event like in Unity and ACIII. Fans before have indicated that black and gold surroundings in the Animus suggest Abstergo as the culprit, whereas lighter colours usually indicate the Assassin Order's official Animus, from what we can tell, Assassin's Creed Victory will have us again as an Abstergo employee, but only time will tell further details. Going to the official website reveals a gold brass knuckle with the Assassin order logo and the sounds of a pub active and about. The brass knuckle has the phrase 'Strength Through Loyalty' written on it, and opening the video in another tab shows the rest of the writings on the wooden pallet, such as 'God Save The Queen', which is ironic since today is Election Day in Britain.

    UPDATE 1: According to Kotaku, the game is now called Assassin's Creed Syndicate, until proven however, we're sticking with VIctory.

    I'm very excited for Victory's official reveal, though Assassin's Creed Unity was disappointing, it seems Ubisoft is taking their time with revealing this, which may well be a good thing. I want to hear your thoughts though, where do you want Assassin's Creed to go next? Let me know down below! Thanks for reading!

    Diablo III Confirmed for 900p on Xbox One; 1080p on PlayStation 4
    Diablo III: The Ultimate Evil has become a widely pre-ordered hit making it's way to Current Generation consoles, and naturally the question buyers are asking is what the resolution of the game is? According to IGN.com, the game will run at a confirmed 900p on the Xbox One, and 1080p on the PS4, both at a 60 frames per second lock. This news came from the Senior Producer's own mouth, Julia Humphreys, who only said, "We're prioritizing frame rate." This is surprising considering it wasn't mentioned at E3, which is strange as most developers would bring it up. Of course this is likely due to the apparent partnership with PS4 as the Ultimate Evil Edition only appeared at the Sony conference, and has PlayStation exclusive content. Phil Spencer also responded over Twitter, making it apparent that the resolution wasn't his choice and he never spoke to Blizzard personally on the matter.

    What do you think, is it disappointing that it's only 900p on Xbox One, or is it okay for the 'next' generation to put out a 900p game? Discuss below!

    Grand Theft Auto V Announced for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation 4
    The Current Generation version of Grand Theft Auto V had a huge amount of rumors and speculation around it, so it was a given that this confirmation would happen, likely at E3. EscapistMagazine.com reports that the game, which was revealed at E3, will becoming at an unannounced date this fall for Xbox One, PC, and PlayStation 4. It will include visual upgrades, added content, and a bonus video editor for PC users. The game is available for pre-order already, and is likely partnered with PlayStation in some way, as it was revealed at their conference and shows PS4 footage.

    Mass Effect Prequel Teased at E3
    Mass Effect has become a pop culture hit in it's latest years, and fans were foaming at the teeth for a new reveal at E3's conference, what they got only managed to tease more, on Mass Effect's YouTube.com account, the set of interviews and concept images can be seen in a short video talking about the move in a new direction. The game is shown to have Krogan-esque figures, and enter a new region of the galaxy currently unexplored. The main character also has beefy armor, looking quite a bit like that of a Cerberus trooper, and follows a galaxy map of sorts, like usual. The N7 logo is also shown off multiple times, as well as vast open terrains mimicing that of the old expansive lands to drive the Mako around, a much missed vehicle. This teaser basically sums up that the game is in development and it won't be long before we see more of it.

  6. E3 Microsoft conference recap

    With E3 Microsoft press conference over it is now time to Recap all the things!

    Posted Image

    We start off with Call of Duty: Advanced Warefare



    Call of Duty was first to appear at E3 showing an impressive trailer.
    Showing a set of playable segments showing the following:

    -Jet packs
    -Mechs
    -Matrix style drone swarms
    -Customisable grenades (EMP, Pulse and Seeking)
    -A laser type riot shield

    At least... That's all I noted.
    The graphics looked amazing but I hope the enemy isn't really that easy to fight.

    Next up we can already see someone die. Massive spoiler?
    Also we see how out main character loses his arm in a pretty nicely done cutscene in my opinion.

    Forza 5 and Horizon 2



    With the recent announcements of both games we now get to see what they were talking about.

    Forza 5 is getting a free DLC which features the N├╝renburger track which is an actual existing racing track and put into the game with 100% accuracy.

    Then (rather quickly) we move on to Horizon 2.
    Horizon 2 is built off the Forza 5 engine. Which will give us 1080p grahics.
    They've also implemented a huge amount of sweet looking cars that we will be able to race around in an open world.
    Want to play with your friends or online? Almost no waiting time due to dedicated servers which will hook you up in not time at all.
    Next to all that you can create your own club (clan) which can feature up to 1000 members!
    The game is set to release at September 30th.

    Evolve



    Evolve is a class based game in which you have to take down large monsters, with guns and everything of course.
    Next to 4 player co-op mayhem one will also be able to play as the actual monster to ruin the day of your friends. Expect a lot of IRL hitting!
    Xbox One owners will get an exclusive beta acces. Get some!

    Assassins Creed Unity

    [PEGI 18]

    Spoiler



    A new Assassins Creed title is already coming up! Set during the french revolution.
    What makes this one different is the fact that you can play the game in a 4-player co-op.
    We were shown just that on stage. 4 players sneaking around and taking down hostiles together to eventually assassinate the target by throwing him out of a window towards a crowd of blood thirsty people which proceeds to kill him in quite a gruesome manner.

    One thing I noticed was that the parkour looked a lot better. Smoother and quicker.
    Then again when the guy walked though a crowd I saw some bumps and it looked iffy. But still plenty of time to fix that right?

    Next up was a Dragon Age: Inquisition trailer



    The trailer looked nice but there was little info given.
    One thing we do know is that is will release on October 7th


    Sunset Overdrive

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz6pvejrQmg

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=foDEbAbOVZE

    Sunset Overdrive gave us a very fun trailer.
    The game will be set in Sunset city, which is now overrun by mutated humans. The mutation was caused by an energy drink that the mutants still crave next to your skin. Also breaking the fourth wall was quite prominent.
    The style of the game is very cartoony with 'boom' and 'splat' appearing in blood or explosions. It also features a lot of parkour and jumping around while shooting the absolute -Yoink!- out of everything in your path, mutants and hostile humans alike.
    I enjoyed the trailer very much :D

    Sunset Overdrive will feature a 8 player co-op mode on dedicated servers in which you'll cause absolute chaos!
    The release date is set on the 28th of October.

    Capcom 31st anniversary

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0TrldalA_Vo

    Capcom decided to give us a DLC for Dead Rising 3 with a title so long that I wasn't able to put it down on paper...
    Featuring all of the Capcom Characters in a arcade game. You can even play as tofu! What more do you want to hear from me?! TOFU!!!

    You can play together with 3 other friends as of now. Because the game has been released JUST NOW!

    Dance Central Spotlight

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xbGY0hN61eE

    Dance your heart out in the new Dance Central title. Although the guy who presented it didn't look like dancing to me...
    Dance to all the popular songs coming September. Digital release only.

    Fable Legends

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=caZbN6mkJ7s

    Fable Legends will send us back to the world of Albion and we'll get to see some old friends and corny jokes.
    The game will feature 4-player co-op and each player can invoke a different role which each different skills. There can also be a villain player that can ruin your day by placing traps and monsters around every corner. Griefers eat your heart out!

    Project Spark

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ocCRqI5VUEs

    Project Spark has already had a beta in which we could get familiar with the game.
    This game allows you to do absolutely everything! Make you own game, create your own world, create anything you like from the ground up!
    Our little friend Conker also made a brief appearance... Interesting.

    Ori

    The game Ori was showcased in a very touching trailer. The style reminded me of Limbo, only this game is very colourful.
    Dem feels ;-;

    The Master Chief collection

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=whRflURN1Ak

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8iGcS-0KpVw

    Holy -YOINK!-
    This is just about everything we had been hoping for.

    We started of with a trailer for the next Halo. We heard the Arbiter and saw the mysterious spartan which now has a name, Agent Clarke.
    Agent Clarke is in search of the Master Chief but the role of the Arbiter is still a bit shady. Is he searching too?

    But lets not forget everything leading up to Halo 5. That's why 343i is releasing the Master Chief collection. One disc that features all the previous Halo games with all the content unlocked and more.
    The Disc will contain:

    Halo CE: Anniversary With the original multiplayer instead of the Halo: Reach version

    Halo 2: Anniversary Which features a remade campaign, multiplayer and achievements

    Halo 3 Which features all DLC content. Maybe even Flaming helmet?

    Halo 4 Which features all DLC content. Maybe even all pre-order armours?

    A live action series called Halo: Nightfall

    A beta acces key for Halo 5 arena which will be available this ummer

    4000 gamerscore. Happy hunting!

    All this can be accesed from just one single disc seamlessly and will release the 11th of November

    Inside

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pTK1QtmHACg

    A trailer for Inside was shown.
    The game is set in a world in which everyone is controlled by automatons. You play as a boy who is still free.
    The game is similair to Limbo as it is created by the same developers.

    A whole load of games coming to the Xbox One is show... Too much to all write down... Sorry!

    Tomb Raider

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kLAyzmWnk4

    A trailer for Tomb raider is shown.
    Of course you still play as Lara Croft.
    Not very much is shown next to that.

    The Witcher 3

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GVlE8BXEbpE

    The developers of The Witcher 3 show us a bit of gameplay 10 hours into the game.
    They hunt down a monster in a very very large world. Because of this open world it is very likely that you side track slightly. By bandits for example.
    The game will also feature interactive dialogue.

    Killer instinct

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnhEeZY75C0

    This game made a brief appearance in the pre-show. Not much else was done during the conference.

    Phantom Dust

    A trailer for Phantom Dust is shown.
    This will be a fighter game.

    The Division

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWJD8DMasCU

    Although this game has been delayed the developers showed a bit of gameplay.
    Starting off below ground they show us a holographic map which shows where you are between the buildings and streets around you and a holographic image of thing that happened in the past.
    Upon contact with enemies you AI friends will actually have a lot of actual dialogue. Reacting directly to things happening around you.
    Also I liked the style very much!

    Scalebound

    Scalebound showed us a trailer with a lot of monsters fighting and of course the character you play as gets involved to. Fighting with a headphone on blasting some fitting music.
    Not much else is shown.

    Crackdown

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LqWvvmgFDt4

    Crackdown makes a return!
    Featuring better graphics, but keeping the old style.
    Play with a friend in a open world on dedicated servers. The trailer also showed a lot of destruction, will we be able to destroy buildings in this world?


    This conculdes everything shown at the conference. I will try to add the trailers and gameplay video as they appear to fill up the games that didn't have that much info.

    Speculate down below!
    Thank you for reading! :D

  9. "Halo News" Coming E3 2014

    This year's E3 looks to get better and better with anticipation building up around many titles, most importantly though the next Halo game.

    Posted Image


    Phil Spencer replied to a fan on Twitter today, saying:

    "Halo news will be coming at E3. 343i has a great plan in place, will be cool to share with everyone."

    Now whether this Halo news is for a supposed Halo 2 Anniversary or Halo 5 no one really knows. But recent reports from around the gaming world have been leaning heavily towards Halo 2 Anniversary:

    With reports of Steve Downes confirming Halo 2's release then quickly retracting the comment and Waypoint tweeting a Halo 2 Master Chief figure that includes a card for "unlockable content."

    But there has still been no official word from Microsoft or 343 industries specifically confirming Halo 5 or Halo 2 Anniversary for 2014. We only know, "Halo news will be coming at E3."

    What kind of plan does 343i have in place? Is this E3 news going to be about Halo 5, Halo 2 Anniversary, maybe even both? Leave your thoughts in the comments bleow.
