Destiny – The House of Wolves screenshots leaked


Recent information has appeared on Reddit supposedly showing leaked screenshots of the new Destiny House of Wolves expansion. The source, Megamanexe4, has a good reputation of posting information and in the past has supplied news on new weaponry and missions within the game before it’s officially announced.

As we can see from the screenshot it clearly shows The Reef as a new social space within the game.  There was rumors when the game was in development back in 2013 that such an area would exist giving guardians an alternative to the Tower but when nothing appeared in the final release most people thought it had fallen through the cracks. Even though we don’t know what and how this area will be used, it’s good to see The Reef being used for something apart from a one-off cut scene.

The moon seems to be popular again for quests and we can see  a level 30 Nightcrawler quest and a level 28 Belly of the Beast Strike, giving opportunity for guardians to get back into the thick of it again. The Belly of the Beast Strike apparently occurs when “A Fallen Wolfship holding an infamous Walker has touched down in the Ocean of Storms. Breach the Ketch and see to this Walker’s end.” Sounds promising.

As always though this is all speculation and we’re still awaiting Bungies announcement of when The House of Wolves expansion will be officially released. The word on the street at the moment seems to show mid May, but as we know things can change very quickly in a game.

Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider and Rayman to join Games with Gold

games with gold logo

Although it hasn’t been officially announced, reports suggest that Xbox Gold members will be getting their hands in Bioshock Infinite & Tomb Raider on the Xbox 360 and Rayman Legends on the Xbox One as part of the Games with Gold promotion.

The info was revealed on one of Microsoft’s internal sites and NeoGAF managed to get hold of the info. 

Other details included the fact that over 100m games have been downloaded since the promotion began and to celebrate Microsoft will be giving away double the free games in April.

I’ve played both Bioshock and Tomb Raider, but they were also two of my favourite games on the 360 and I haven’t got Rayman so it’s a good month for me! What do you think of the lineup?

Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun cancelled video footage


Legacy of Kain: Dead Sun was the successor to Soul Reaver and was unfortunately cancelled in 2012 by Square Enix after three years in development due to poor sales projections. A lot of mystery has shrouded the game about its contents but Mama Robotnik has spent years tracking down sources who worked on the game and piecing together any information they could find as to what this game had in store for us.

This relentless search has uncovered the below never seen footage of the game in its pre-alpha state.

For more in-depth information and amazing screenshots check out Mama Robotnik’s forum page on NeoGAF.

The future of Battlefield 4


At the end of last year Dice recapped on what an exciting year 2014 had been for Battlefield 4 and how 2015 would again hold some surprises. Two months into the year and Dice have now revealed what they meant.

Apart from the normal continued support of the game through tweaks, patches and weapon packs there is also talk of two larger content drops. What these might include we are still unsure about, but one of these could be related to the announcement that Dice want to build a playable map with its premium community.

Yes it’s true, Dice have announced that they want to build a playable map from the ground up using the community’s feedback in every aspect of the project phase. This is something that has never been done before by Dice and could be a way of getting all their premium members back together as one big happy family.

Once completed the map will then be available to all users as a free download. Further information can be found here.

There was also news of the coming Winter Patch that is due out in March.  This patch will focus mainly on netcode, soldier collision and a tweak to the very competitive Squad Obliteration mode.

So does this spark your interest, or has Battlefield 4 run its course and you are just twiddling your thumbs before Hardline comes out?

Ammunition used as Xbox 360 controller buttons


It was reported that yesterday bomb disposal experts were called to a home in West Belfast as a number of ammunition rounds were found. In an update today on the BBC website it has been revealed that the ammunition in question was actually imitation rounds used as custom Xbox 360 controller buttons.

The property in Sliabh Dubh Lane was cordoned off on Tuesday night as a security operation was launched. Since then the Police have revealed the items have been taken away after being declared not suspicious.

A quick image search online reveals a number of modding sites out there offering this service. To any of you who customise your controllers, we’d advise against using imitation bullets. At least if you don’t want the local police department knocking down your front door and confiscating your beloved controller.

Ah, what better way to spend a wet half-term day in with the kids, than arguing over the answer to a Trivial Pursuit question? As of today, you can do just that without having to worry about whether you’ve got all of the little wedges in the box.

Ubisoft and Hasbro Gaming have released the launch trailer for Trivial Pursuit Live! Coming out on Xbox One and 360, this takes the game to a new level with a fresh, new, TV show style and all-new question types to puzzle over.
