Whether you’re the cops or the criminals, the goal in Battlefield Hardline’s Hotwire mode is to get to the marked cars and drive fast. This is high speed chases like you’ve never seen before on the streets of Battlefield.
Driving a marked car causes you to begin to bleed the enemy team’s tickets – so make sure you hang onto the ride and continue to drive. You’re not going to score points or bleed tickets if you’re not driving. Drive fast to fill the capture bar – now you’re helping!
Each Hotwire map has a couple of key locations that you need to learn and stake out if you want to bring down your enemies. Park your squad car across the lanes, maybe rig it with breaching charges or trip mines – and funnel the enemies into your line of fire! That will teach ‘em to come onto your turf!
Earlier this week on September 16th, a live stream of the upcoming hack’n’slash title Hellraid was broadcast by Techland. Everyone who tuned in to Techland’s Twitch channel had a chance to see the game for the first time after its transition to Chrome Engine 6 – a proprietary next-gen engine known for fuelling Techland’s much anticipated Dying Light. The stream has been recorded and can now be watched above if you hit the play button!
In April, Techland announced that Hellraid would come to next-gen platforms and was now undergoing a transition to Chrome Engine 6, the latest version of Techland’s technology designed to take full advantage of the new hardware generation. In August, the effect of this profound change was presented to invited journalists at gamescom in Cologne, Germany. Now everyone can see how these months of hard work have changed Hellraid.
Hellraid is coming to PC, Playstation 4 and Xbox One in 2015. A Steam Early Access for PC is planned for fall 2014.
It’s great being a Seattle Seahawks fan at the moment, we’re Super Bowl champions, we got off to great start in our first game (though we lost our second) and generally things are pretty good, so it was great joy that Madden 15 fell my way complete with the Legion of Boom gracing the home screen.
After really enjoying Madden 25, I was looking forward to seeing the updated rosters and how the new gameplay features would improve upon the last game. The biggest change you’ll notice if you have played the previous games is that the defence had has some great change made to it. Being able to swap the camera round so you have the defence in front of you is great because you can get a much better of view of what’s going on with your team. For those with quick reaction there is a mini game that involves pressing the right trigger when the play is made and you feel the vibration, which can help give you that extra time to go for the QB, if you get blocked you’ll have one more opportunity to get past the offense by pressing the corresponding prompt that comes up on screen.
I didn’t notice any real change in terms of the offence, but there is a subtle new feature that can prove quite useful, Tempo changes allow you to alter the how quickly your team responds to the play clock, trying to wind down time to protect a win? Then you can ‘Chew the Clock’ to hold breaking your huddle until as late as possible, the opposite gives you the option to have no huddle and get through your plays as quickly as possible. The playcalling as had some interesting changes made to it to, especially » Continue Reading.
Team17 have announced their partnership this morning with developers’ Modern Dream. Together they are taking 70s cop themed top down shooter, LA Cops, to the max with a release on console and PC.
LA Cops is a rad action game with a tactical aspect that sees you cleaning up the mean streets of 70s LA one action packed shootout at a time! Can you dig it? LA Cops is currently available in Steam Early Access for just £8.99 and will be coming soon to console and PC as a full release.
The video below is PC early access footage and will resemble the console version (probably) in many ways. 3d cell shaded graphics ahoy, but since the footage below the developers have added in permanence to the vanishing blood and bodies – they’re now here to stay!
If we managed to grab a review code – we’ll keep you posted.

Diablo III is the third in a series of iconic PC cooperative dungeon crawler RPG’s. The franchise is well known and respected in PC gaming circles; it ranks high up there with other RPG’s and dungeon crawlers like Neverwinter Nights and Baldur’s Gate. It is quite literally one of the industry’s most popular franchises, a battle between Good and Evil, Heaven and Hell, and now Blizzard have released Diablo III, the Reaper of Souls expansion and a bunch of other features in the all new Ultimate Evil Edition for Xbox One (amongst other systems).
To date Over 13 million players have battled the demonic hordes of Diablo III. That’s an outstanding achievement considering a third are console players. The Ultimate Evil Edition contains both Diablo III and the Reaper of Souls expansion set together in one definitive volume with some tweaks and patches added in for good measure. The main storyline is still intact with an expansion that includes a fifth act based in Westmarch, but now additionally added is an open world Adventure Mode in which players will revisit locations from the story and hunt bounties on the elder evils that lurk throughout the mortal realms. Players can also complete boss battles and enter Rifts to fight for rare loot and heaps of gold. Adventure Mode is only available to players who complete the main story; whether solo or with other players in CO-OP Mode.
Like its predecessors, this iteration is a diabolically (like what I did there?) hellish, cooperative dungeon crawler that isn’t afraid to ratchet up its toughness from time to time.
