Hello everyone, Edward Kenway here, I know my name says Omega right now but I'll be changing back eventually, so fear not those who knew me as EK, you won't have to adjust for that long! Anyways, PAX gave off some super gaming news. In news I'm not covering here, Halo 2 Anniversary has some new sound design, some new Dead Island 2 stuff was released, and Saints Row IV is getting a remake and some DLC. Let's get down to the news!

State of Decay Getting Xbox One Port

State of Decay was massively well received as a breath of fresh air for the dying Zombie theme at the time of it's launch on Xbox Live and PC, being (at the time) an innovative experience as players lived in an ever changing, unscripted world with the undead running rampant, however today we see games like DayZ, H1Z1, and others accomplish the same in larger numbers. Xbox.com has the story as it was announced that State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition will be coming to Xbox One in 2015. It will include your typical remastered contents, the game with up-scaled graphics (1080p) and frames-per-second, all the DLC, and entirely new content yet unannounced. It will launch on an unconfirmed date in 2015, I would guess sometime in Early Spring though. Undead Labs, the developers of the game and it's port, will be revealing more info on the game and it's unannounced new features later on.

Are you going to purchase State of Decay: Year One Survival Edition (couldn't have picked a longer title) on Xbox One, or does this seem like another typical industry cash grab on a game that had only been recently released? Debate the facts below!

 

Nintendo Announces New 3DS Design/"Next Gen" 3DS

Selling tremendously well during it's two year run so far, the 3DS was a sleeper hit among many Nintendo business failures, like the Wii U. Polygon.com reports that Nintendo has announced two new and improved variants of the system, the regular new version and the XL version. The new system is labeled as, "The New 3DS" (Not kidding) will feature a better overall layout, improved CPU to allow games to run better on it, and an analog nub to act as a second thumbstick and new shoulder buttons. Other features include Amiibo integration, and sliding covers so that you can customize your 3DS with new skins. However, sad news for people who own the old 3DS, as they may be forced to upgrade in the future, with exclusive games being developed for the new hardward, with Xenoblade Chronicles being the first. The model will launch exclusively to Japan on October 11th, making it's way to the Western Market next year as a possibility.

Are you displeased that you must upgrade your 3DS so soon after it's launch to play some future games, or is it okay and a natural part of owning a console? Discuss the ideas!

 

Halo: The Master Chief Collection Forge Revealed, Halo 3 Gameplay, etc.

343 Industries had a lot to reveal today at PAX at their conference, with Forge details being the highlight and a surprise viewing of Halo 3 in 1080p/60fps. Ducain23 (one of our partners) recorded the whole event, which can be seen at YouTube.com, showing off some new forge features and images on Ascension. Bug fixes like inconsistent magnetization and menu issues have been addressed and dealt with, and some old features like zoom and the much requested precision control have been brought back. We have a host of new features though, and I'll list and explain several of them here. You can now snap and align objects to the ground, allowing you to easily place something on terrain without issue. Next, the palette has been improved with new natural objects and structures, and you can now pick specific palettes for objects on maps. You can also create objects in the sky in Skyboxes, like in Sandbox in Halo 3 on the grid. You can script objects, and while we're not totally sure what this could mean, we can assume players can assign objects certain activation cues or interactions, like making objects into doors. Finally there is no more budget, and instead we have an object counter currently capped at 650, at least on Ascension. Halo 3 gameplay was also shown, as said before, and looked to have very little difference to it's last gen counterpart, you can view the whole thing in the link.

Are you excited for Forge or Halo 3 in the Master Chief Collection now that we have seen some of these? Let me know below!

 

Thank you all very much for reading, my apologies that it's later in the day, I was busy. Hope everyone has a great night, and I'll see you next time. GIMME A WEEKLY. GIMME A NEWS. GIMME A WRAP-UP.

 

Badoosh!

Personally Halo 3 forge was forges prime, because you were restricted and anything you made that worked was amazing. :)

 

Nice to see H3 forge is getting an update....

 

Edit

 

I read it wrong..... it is Halo 2.... Nice to see Halo 2 is getting forge, it will be interesting to see what people do with Halo 2s new forge capabilities.

 

It would be nice if Halo 3 still got an update though.

The 3DS has been out for 3.5 years.

 

The Gameboy Color and the Gameboy Advance had a lifespan of a little over 3 years, making it similar to the 3DS. The Gameboy was about 9 years and the DS was about 8 years.

 

Since the WiiU has been doing pretty doody, Nintendo probably got an evil conference together and decided to release a new handheld knowing that millions of people would just throw money at it. But given that it is Nintendo doing it nobody will think this is a ploy to get money. Just look at the GB Advance SP. It was released, netted Nintendo millions of dollars, then 1.5 years later they release the DS.

On further thought the new 3ds Nintendo is coming out with is what the 3ds should have been like at launch. :)

 

I mean not even 2 analog sticks?

Nice Wrap-Up Edward.

 

State of Decay was incredibly popular when it was released last year. I even had friends on Play Station telling me how good it is. I played that demo and seemed like a good game, I wouldn't purchase it though.

 

I heard the new sounds for Halo: MCC earlier and I think that the difference is a great improvement. It sounds like real gunfire. I'm looking forward to getting hands-on experience with this in November. :)
