During this past E3, Ubisoft debuted a game by showing its fans a demo of an MMO-online-shooter called ‘Tom Clancy’s The Division.’ It was easily one of the show’s most talked about game; however, there wasn’t a heck of a lot of information about it.
At this point, Ubisoft still hasn’t enlightened us about The Division. And today, is really one of the first pieces of new footage we’ve seen since the convention back in June. But if you are expecting a new demo, or gameplay video, then i’m about to burst your bubble.
Watch the impressive video after the jump. (more…)
Titanfall is overwhelmingly cool. From the moment it stole last year’s E3, it seems like every bit of information that is released about the first-person shooter, is positive news. And today, we get a little more of juicy tid-bits about the game, and two new trailer, which reveals two new Mechs.
Much like their human counterparts, the mechs will have their own class. They both endure weaknesses and strengths. Today, Respawn Entertainment revealed two of these mechs, in two Video Game Award (VGX) trailer. Which both can be scene after the break. (more…)
The Polish video game studio Techland, who’s work includes Dead Island, showed off a demo of their next game called Dying Light. Much like Dead Island, this next title will be a first-person view, and the idea is to, once again, escape hordes of the undead.
However, unlike their previous work, Dying Light will incorporate movement that resembles parkour action. While watching the demo, the game’s platforming action reminds me a lot like the 2008 underrated game Mirror’s Edge, which was developed by DICE.
There’s an online petition right now for Microsoft to bring back their digital rights management policies for the Xbox One. Yes, those same DRM policies that the Internet was so irate with, that Microsoft was forced to announce that they no longer with support DRM on the Xbox One because of the amount of bad press the company was getting.
The protest was setup by David Fontenot from Georgia. I firmly feel that he truly believes that some of the features that Microsoft had promised because of the online requirement that are no longer supported, was not worth the DRM change.
“This was to be the future of entertainment,” wrote Fontenot. “A new wave of gaming where you could buy games digitally, then trade, share or sell those digital licenses. Essentially, it was Steam for Xbox. But consumers were uninformed, and railed against it, and it was taken away because Sony took advantage of consumers uncertainty.”
While Fontenot had faith in the Xbox One’s original plans, many — if not most — of his online signatures don’t. (more…)
If you play games in the 80s, face it, at one point you wanted the Power Glove. I did, and I eventually got one during Christmas the year came out in 1989. A few days later, I made my mom return it.
If you’re little too young to know what the Power Glove was (or is), it was Nintendo’s first attempt at motion control. As the name sounds, the motion control was actually a glove that gamers put on their hand. I remember hearing rumors about this device, and the first time I actually saw it — and I think a lot of kids of my generation would agree — was in the movie The Wizard, starting 80′s child star Fred Savage.
After watching the movie, every child wanted one. The idea of controlling a video game with the swipe of a arm sounded like science fiction, and back then it was. To us, the future was here. And when the future was finally under my christmas tree. I realized at that very moment, the future sucked.
Since that time, the Power Glove has fused together as mockery and cool. Basically it’s the perfect hipster representative. A few inspiring filmmakers have decided to create a documentary about the rise and fall of the power glove, and even though it was an abysmal failure, it somehow has become an icon in popular culture.
AVbyte decide to write a magnificent ‘West Side Story” tribute type broadway song, but the musical scenario has very little to do with two gangs living in new york. Instead, the rivalry is between PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC fanboys. Sadly, the Wii U isn’t mentioned in the console war song…just like in reality.
Most gamers can agree that Microsoft’s Xbox One used and lending game policy is more confusing than it should be. Since the start of E3, Sony has seen a golden opportunity to take jabs at Microsoft’s unclear stance on the subjects.
Nothing rings truer than the hilarious video Sony released on youtube regarding how to lend PlayStation 4 games to their friends.
Up top is a parody video that was uploaded onto by YongYea, which shows how “easy” it is to lend games to your friends on the Xbox one.
Everything seems fine until the original Xbox One owner would like his game back. Sadly, this video on some level, this video is correct.
Jimmy Fallon had a segment last night called: “The Do Not Game List.” The title is pretty self-explanatory; Fallon grabs a handful of games, which are completely real, and shows them off because they’re absolutely terrible.
A few are considered horrendous legendary titles, while others you might not have even heard of. Sadly, I’ve played most of them — don’t judge me. (more…)
