Are you drawn to a King’s Quest?

KingsQuestTitle

Sierra Games have coerced and cajoled King’s Quest developer The Odd Gentlemen to divulge some of the secrets of creating this timeless classic of the gaming world on the new consoles.

Sit back and relax while Art Director Evan Cagle and game Producer, Linsey Rostal talk you through how the compelling and beautiful world of King’s Quest is created, a technique that required re-learning from the lessons of old, back to the 1990s when Sierra had devised a means for traditional artists to draw out their ideas before scanning them in and having them fine-tuned digitally.

This is the third in a four part “behind the scenes” series for the game, which is due out later this year on both Xbox One and Xbox 360.

House of Wolves awakens in Destiny

house of wolves

So after lots of hype and build up, House of Wolves finally awakens in Destiny and  releases today. Available to download now, House of Wolves is the second expansion in the acclaimed Destiny game and brings you to the call of the Queen of the Awoken to help her hunt down the House of Wolves, Fallen subjects once loyal to the Queen before their violent rebellion. Meet with the Queen’s emissaries at Vestian Outpost in the Reef. Hunt down their Fallen betrayers and earn great rewards.

I’ll be playing the expansion over the next couple of days so will update you on my thoughts and views soon. In the meantime, will you be playing this, and if so let me know your thoughts and opinions?

In case you having been living without an Internet Connection for the past week you may have missed the fact that the biggest game of the year has just released.

That’s right, Farming Simulator had launched on consoles, allowing you to manage and develop your own farm: harvesting, breeding (cows, chickens and sheep), sales of fresh products, investment in new and more powerful vehicles or tools.

Keep an eye out for our review in the next day or so.

Who’s prepared for Chaos Theory in Life is Strange?

rsz_lifeisstrange

It seems like an eternity since I reviewed Episode 2 of Dontnod’s teen drama, Life is Strange. I think I might need to re-play that episode, Out of Time, in order to remind me of the story and where it’s at. I’d almost forgotten that there was another installment due soon.

Well, it’s time and Dontnod have released a lovely new trailer for Episode 3: Chaos Theory. This episode will see Max and Chloe breaking into Blackwell Academy, looking for clues as to the disappearance of Rachael Amber. Max will also find another use for her powers.

Will they uncover some truths without being busted, and will they cross paths with the likes of Nathan and Frank once more?

You’ll only have to wait until the 19th of May to find out.

Destiny: House of Wolves official trailer

Minecraft celebrates its 3rd birthday with free skins

XBox_3rdBirthdayPack_Lineups_01

Minecraft on the Xbox 360 is 3 years old today and to mark the event Xbox is giving away free skin packs to all of its players.

To celebrate the occasion and to say thankyou to the 20 million players on Xbox 360 and Xbox One a selection of skins are now available to download. Until May 17, you can now download three packs for free. There’s a brand-new bundle featuring veteran Mojangstas and a few cheeky extras, the 2nd Birthday Skin Pack from last year, and the 1st Skin Pack that was given away to celebrate Minecraft’s first birthday.

If you’re a veteran 360 player you might already own the older packs, but this is the first time any of them have been available on Xbox One so grab them while they are available.

Battlefield 4 says goodbye to mobile commanders

BF4-Commander1

In a recent post on Battlelog, Dices hub for all things Battlefield, it was announced that as of August 11th 2015 the Battlefield 4 Commander app on the iOS and Android platforms will no longer be supported.

The posting went on to say;

This is not an easy choice, but we believe the time is right to retire the mobile app as we’re seeing more of our Commanders playing on PC and console. This change means that you’ll no longer be able to download the app from Apple Store or Google Play starting today, April 28th. However, if you have the app downloaded already, you can continue to play it on mobile devices until August 11th. Additionally, this change does not affect in any way the in-game Commander mode experience. You will still be able to take the command and lead your team to victory on your PC and consoles!

As a regular user of the app this saddens me as I have spent many hours supporting friends and colleagues when I’ve either been away from home or just couldn’t be bothered to fire my Xbox up.

With this service shutting down does this mean we might be seeing something new coming for a future DICE release that will include mobile device integration, who knows? All I know is I’m now going to have to find something else to do to while I wait to board my plane.

All future Battlefield 4 content to be free

Battlefield-41-610x335

Following on from my post in February this year on the future of Battlefield 4, it looks like Dice have kept their promise and have been busy working on a lot of new content for the game. Apart from the community map which has been in development since early this year, we are also expecting to get night maps, a few extra weapons, the upcoming Gunmaster game mode and some extra undisclosed content. This all sounds great but the big question being asked by the Battlefield 4 community is how much will this cost?

The wait is over and its now been confirmed by David Sirland, Producer at Dice LA, that all future content for the game will be free of charge to both Premium and non-Premium players. So with this in mind lets take a closer look at what we can look forward to?

The upcoming Spring patch will include the Gunmaster game mode and 5 new weapons, including the AN-94 assault rifle. The Night Maps update will include night versions of several maps, including Siege of Shanghai, Zavod 311, and Golmud Railway.

Finally, this Summer, DICE will release the brand new community map, which they have worked on since early this year. In addition to this map there is also talk of another map in the remake from a former Battlefield game, but what this is we don’t know as of yet. Further information on the up and coming releases can be found on Battlelog.

So again the future looks bright for existing Battlefield 4 players but what do you think about the option now to give all new content free to everyone, especially non-Premium members?
