The Witcher 3: console bug to be addressed

The-Witcher-3

So hands up who is enjoying the fantastic The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, ok now keep your hands up if you have been hit with the dreaded save game bug?

Ever since the launch of the game CD Projekts forums have been filled with people talking about issues with the GUI, stability of the game, but the main issue that seems to be frustrating many consoles players, is the inability to save. Multiple people are plagued by an intermittent issue that randomly disables auto saving as well as manual saving , which you don’t typically realize until many hours later. Well help might soon be at hand.

Phillipp Weber, Cd Projekt RED quest designer posted a reply to a frustrated user on the official forums stating;

We are aware of the issue and treat it very seriously. We hope to put the fix in a patch as soon as possible.

Cd Projekt RED yesterday released a patch for the PC and on twitter Marcin Momot, Community Lead, confirmed that the console version of the patch was still in the works and would be made available “very soon.”

Until a fix is implemented many temporary solutions have been posted on Kotaku which some players might find useful.

In the meantime if your still in two minds about The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, why don’t you check out our review here and find out what made our Senior Editor Rich not want to sleep for 4 days.

 

Microsoft offers free EA Access

EAAccess

Every once in a while Microsoft surprise us with the odd email inviting people to take part in exclusive offers, Beta tests and trials and it looks like they have done it again.

If you own an Xbox One you might want to keep an eye on your inbox as it seems our friends at Microsoft have emailed selective members offering them 12 months free EA Access, but there is a catch as you have to refer a friend to buy a console.

Now this sort of offer has been going on for a long time in Xbox Live Rewards, where if you get a friend to subscribe to Xbox Live Gold you both receive a large sum of Microsoft credits as a thankyou, these can then be used to buy digital games and added content. So it looks like the net has been cast a little wider this time and maybe is the first part of the big push planned to promote EA Access over the coming 12 months.

If you are one of the lucky ones to receive an email, we don’t know what selection criteria Microsoft are using, you will receive a unique code at the bottom of the email which you have to enter to show you have referred your friend. On doing this though both of you will then receive a years worth of EA Access.

Sounds easy, but digging deeper there seems another catch, restricting you to which Xbox you have to buy and how you buy it. If you are lucky enough though to receive one of these emails then do let us know.

EA Access is the exclusive subscription service where you receive discounts on EA games, » Continue Reading.

Spy Chameleon Review

I enjoy a puzzle game every now and again and can certainly say this game took me by surprise as if it was blending into the Xbox environment waiting for its time to strike, We’ve caught ya now! I found this top down puzzler to be instantly likeable while still posing an interesting challenge with a twist.

You start off eased in to the life of a Spy Chameleon with a tutorial that shows you the basics of what to avoid and what to collect, this quickly becomes a lot more fun as more things are thrown into the mix. There are four different chameleon colours to choose from all depicted by the colour of the button you press, Red, Blue, Yellow or Green. These correspond with colourful rugs, floor tiles and paint cans to blend against, So being aware of your surroundings will help you avoid detection.

f12015fi

Codemasters are renowned for their superb racing games and they’ve been around since the year dot. With the Monaco F1 Grand Prix this weekend, what better time to release the teaser trailer for the officially licensed game of the F1 championship for this season, F1 2015?

But, wait, they seem to have an issue and they’re heading into the pits. The game, originally due for lights out and go, go, go on the 12th of June has a new launch date.

The developers have put the release back a month and the game will now be released on the 10th of July, with the thought being that this is to make a concerted push to get the cars flying around at a consistent 60fps.

It has also been revealed that UK pre-orders from GAME will include an exclusive F1 2015 metal case and a “Race Like A Champion” guide book with racing hints and tips.

So we might have to wait another month for the game to be launched, but it’ll be worth the wait, right?

Save the rodents in MouseCraft

mousecrafttitle

What do you get when you cross Tetris with Lemmings and throw in a crazy cat scientist? MouseCraft is what you get, and it looks to be one of the most interesting puzzlers to come out on the ID@Xbox program yet.

Guide your little twitchy-whiskered posse to the irresistable cheese by placing Tetronimos strategically along the route. Use these famous blocks to create a safe path for your mice to traverse to their ultimate fromage-y goal. The in-game action will allow you to freeze the game or to increase the speed at any point to challenge your stacking skills.

You’ll even get the opportunity to create your own maps to show off your evil feline-scientist side.

MouseCraft is due to complete it’s rodent research and be available for the latter half of this year.

Add a little Sparkle to your gaming

SparkleTitle

10tons Ltd is a developer with a massive back catalogue of mobile gaming apps and a brief but very successful foray into the console market on Sony’s gaming device.

They are extremely excited to announce their debut Xbox One game will be the marble-matching madness that is Sparkle Unleashed. Some (many) of you will have played Sparkle or Sparkle 2 on your mobile devices I’m sure and Sparkle Unleashed is set to take the gameplay and make it more controller-friendly.

Gone is the rotating marble shooter, replaced with a sliding sphere-release along the bottom of the screen. This is very similar to Luxor, another game I’ve probably wasted days playing in the past.

Sparkle Unleashed will also feature chained orbs, rock orbs and more new challenges as well as 18 power-ups and new soundtrack . Challenge yourself to it’s 108 regular levels with a Survival mode and two more difficulty settings.

Will this finally be the game to knock Zuma off it’s marble blasting-pedestal on the Xbox platform?

Have a look at the trailer and then decide that you want to go and get it, when it’s relased, on the 3rd of June.

Will you enter the Q.U.B.E ?

QUBETitle

Cubism is the art technique where an object is taken, analysed, broken up and reassembled in abstract form. Prague has the world’s only cubist lamp post. What’s the link, I hear you ask.

Well, in Q.U.B.E, short for Quick Understanding of Block Extrusion, you have the task of analysing the puzzle, using the special gloves to manipulate and in essence, reassemble the environment, apart from the abstract nature, it’s pretty much cubism in action.

A cross-platform hit when it was originally released, Q.U.B.E The Director’s Cut brings back the original developers, Toxic Games, and this release gets the addition of the Against the Qlock mode, ten bonus levels and an all-new soundtrack to tickle the ears.

The game will also boast all the features of the original game that made it so popular, as you try to make your way out of a mysterious spaceship by manipulating 3D jigsaws, utilising your quick reactions in first person platforming and solving the mysteries ahead of you.

As if all that wasn’t enough, publisher, Grip Games and Toxic Games have released a gameplay trailer for Q.U.B.E The Director’s Cut, which is down for release this summer.
