‘Myst’ TV Show In Production

Myst Cover Art

 

If you’re over the age of 25, then you surely remember the point-&-click adventure game Myst for the PC, and some other older consoles. If you owned it, chances are it was one of the first, if not THE first, CD ROM game in your collection. During it’s 1993 release, it was noted for its “realistic” graphics, combined with full-motion video sequences, and one of the most successful to include those features to this day. In fact it was such a huge hit, it was the most popular PC game ever, up until The Sims stole the crown in 2002.

GTA V PS4 Screen

 

Grand Theft Auto V for the PlayStation 4 is gonna be huge. A I don’t mean from a sales standpoint. A user from a GTA V forum, captured a screenshot that shows the space required on the HDD in order to play the remastered version of the open-world game on the PS4. A a mandatory 50GB install is the necessary space needed.

 

If this is indeed correct, and I’m sure it is, than that gives this version of GTA V the new title belt as “the biggest install for a video game to date.” The previous champion will be Wolfenstein: The New Order, which was released a few months ago, with a 47GB install.

NBA 2K15 Face Scan Feature Is Terrifying

NBA 2K15 face scan

One of the cooler additions to NBA 2K15 is its feature to allow gamers to scan their face into the game… when it works. While the technology is nothing new in the video game world (I remember 2003′s Tony Hawk’s Underground doing it), it’s still a neat concept. And with the advances in hardware, I expect great results… and we do have that in NBA 2K15… when it again, works.

 

An imgur has appeared online, which has a series of images from how terrifying some of the user faces can be. Be forewarned, you’ll be disturbed and we take no responsibility if you fall into a deep depression.

Halo 2: Anniversary Not Running In 1080p

realisticteabag

 

And what will surely instigate this stupid fanboy war between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One fanboys, executive producer for the game, Dan Ayoub, has confirmed that the Halo: 2 Anniversary won’t run in native 1080p resolution. However, the game is packaged within the Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and includes all 1-4 Halo titles. Besides Halo 2, every other game on the disc will run in 1080p. However, he did ensure Halo 2 will run and will look “fantastic” at 720p, and 60 frames-a-second.

 

Some fans of the franchise, who have been anticipating the release of the collection, were displeased with the news and took their voice on the NeoGAF forums. Frank O’Connor, who is the development director for the Master Chief Collection, felt the need to respond to some of the harsh opinions posted on the boards. He explained the reasons for the developers decision to ultimately have Halo 2 run at 720p. According to him, Halo 2′s specs are running at a higher standard then when they remastered Halo: Combat Evolved, in 2011 on Xbox 360.

vita

 

Today, Sony released a PlayStation TV fact sheet online, gearing up for the devices launch on October 14th. The FAQ page randomly announced that the PS Now service, Sony’s online video game streaming service — currently in public beta — will be available on the Vita, the same day PS TV is in stores.

 

While it’s been previously known that PS Now would eventually be available on the Vita, Sony had been pretty mum on when. So it’s interesting Sony quietly threw in the release date for the streaming serve for its handheld. If you own a PS Vita, you’ll have the same instant access that the PlayStation 4 currently has for PS Now. Which is over a 150 PlayStation 3 games, and over 700 games that were previously available on all Sony PlayStation console, which dates back to the PSX from 1995.

Here we go again. Another year has gone by, which means another Call of Duty. But unlike the last 2,000 sequels that have been released, this one is being built on next generation hardware. If that doesn’t get you pumped, you’re probably a normal person.

Today, Activision has revealed a new trailer, and we have it after the jump, which focuses mostly on the campaign, and with a quick tease of multiplayer. And in all seriousness, this game is shaping up like it could be fun. Sure… it’s probably been “inspired” by Titianfall, but that’s a good thing. It’s getting fans of the franchise a breath of fresh air, and it might possibly introduce some new ones. And maybe…just maybe…ex-fans might return. But maybe that’s also just wishful thinking.

2K-Logo

Last year, 2K Sports announced they were halting development on their MLB 2K series.

We have decided not to renew our MLB 2K series for 2014,” read a statement from a company earlier in the year. “We are very proud of the achievements made by the MLB 2K team and look forward to their contributions to our future titles.”

Many outlets, rightfully so, took it as if the company was abandoning baseball altogether. We’ve might have spoken too soon.

EAACess

Electronic Arts has announced a subscription-based service called EA Access. The Netflix-style service will launch in a few weeks for the Xbox One, but a beta has started today. EA has yet to reveal if the service will be on Sony systems in the future.

When the general public has the ability to subscribe to the service, it will cost $4.99 monthly, or they can choose a yearly price of $29.

The service will offer gamers with a slew of EA titles, and they will rotate from month-to-month. Much like what Netflix does with their streaming option.

Super Mario Bros. Hoodie for $99

Stylinonline has a Super Mario hoodie that you’re either going to love or hate. The back of the hoodie sweatshirt, as you can tell, is the start screen of the old original Nintendo game Super Mario Bros..The front of the hoodie is a little bit more subtle — it has a small clipping of the title screen, along with the tiny embedded controller patch, and lastly the box cover art on the left chest of the jersey

The designer of this geek hoodie is Torrel, who only produced a limited supply of 1000, with each sleeve having authenticity sewn, including what number the sweatshirt is.

The price of the hoodie is rather expensive, and will set you back about $100, but it is available to purchase right now.

This hoodie is definitely cool, but I’m not entirely sure I could wear it everywhere. I think it would be mostly for gaming gatherings like conventions, but I’m not sure if I would wear it on a night in the town. It’s not that I’m against showing off my geekyness, it’s just the sweatshirt is a little too vibrate, and while wearing it, I think I would be giving off the impression that I want to be recognized everywhere I go.

After the break, check out more images of the hoodie.
