Enjoy the October Preview video and then full details further below that…. that’s if you manage to put Destiny down of course.
New Snap and Friends functions
Snap Updates – We’ve updated the Snap Center to include quick access to many of the things our fans wanted faster access to when playing a game – Friends, Messages, Game DVR, clock, and battery indicator – as well as making it easier to close and open new snap apps when playing a game. A double tap of the Xbox button on your controller will bring up a menu that allows you to open a new app in snap mode, close the current snapped app, or switch focus between your game and your running snapped app. Additionally, two apps have been optimized for Snap mode.
Friends Snap App – Access your friends list without leaving the game. Quickly check your friends list to see who’s online right now and take actions like send message, invite or join. Messages Snap App – You’ll be able to open, read and respond to messages in Snap mode, and messages will now be displayed in a threaded conversation view.
When Warriors Orochi 3 fell into my path I’ll admit to not knowing what to expect, I tend to have a fairly good gaming knowledge but I’m always on the lookout to expand it where possible, I knew I’d heard of the game from somewhere and after some research my original thoughts we confirmed. Warriors Orochi was released 3 years ago across the last generation of consoles, it brought together two game series, Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors and now it is time for the Next generation treatment.
To those of you who are fans of the two games you’ll know all about which characters have come from which series, who is missing and who is new, for me however it’s a whole new world of awesome looking characters with some brilliant looking moves, so I’ll apologise in advance to the hardcore fans!
Once you start the game you are greeted with a whole host of modes, I naturally started with the story mode to try and get a better understanding of what was going on. Time and space has been warped by the Serpent King known as Orochi, forcing china and Japan together to defeat a huge beast known as the Hydra. This beast was far too powerful for the warriors and defeated them one by one, but hope was not lost thanks to a Mystic known as Kaguya who was able to travel through time and change the past giving the two sets of heroes to change the course of time and defeat the Hydra. Now hopefully that made sense and you are still with me!
The first thing you’ll notice is the huge amount of enemies you go into battle with, the draw distances aren’t as impressive as I’d hope but when you have what feels » Continue Reading.
It seems some new details have emerged online via the latest issue of Future Publishing’s GameMaster magazine. Although nothing has appeared on either Capcom’s official press site or other industry press sites, details look pretty solid.
Claire Redfield will return as the playable lead and it is said that “In the time since we last saw her (Claire), she’s grown to be a seasoned veteran.” Claire will be joined throughout the campaign with Moira Burton, daughter of the legendary Barry Burton. The campaign will be playable in co-op or singleplayer. When playing as Claire, her style will be more combat focused. Whereas Moira will be supplying Claire with health herbs, provided the flashlight and general support. Claire will be the only player death that will result in a Game Over, one of Moira’s key roles will be to help keep Claire alive (though Claire can obviously heal herself). The story will take place on an abandoned island detention facility. The campaign will begin with Claire and Moira awakening after being abducted. The events will take place between the events of Resident Evil 5 and Resident Evil 6. Gameplay will be much more Survival Horror orientated (much like the first Resident Evil: Revelations), bringing the series back to its roots with less over the top action, unlike Resident Evil 5 and 6. Fan feedback has played a part in the development of Resident Evil: Revelations 2. Producer Okabe said that “The project has been finding the line between listening to fan feedback and also doing something different to confound expectations.” Okabe also said that “I want this to be both a game that doesn’t lose what made its predecessor great, while also bringing something new and exciting to the Resident Evil series.” He also added that » Continue Reading.
So in a bid to increase the hype even more (like Destiny actually needed any more!), Activision have teamed up with one of the UK’s leading YouTuber’s Ismail aka ‘MoreConsole’ to stage the moment The Traveler arrived above Earth, for real with just 1 day before worldwide release.
The behind-the-scenes video follows below including the official release from Activision immediately below. Enjoy and don’t forget to let us know if you’ll be playing tomorrow.
At least that’s what it looks like – as Ismail launched a weather balloon into near space this week successfully recreating one of the iconic images from Destiny. The image was captured in the outer atmosphere, via a high-altitude weather balloon 107,841 thousand-feet above Earth, to celebrate the imminent arrival of the game ahead of its launch across the world on 9th September.
The idea was inspired by some of the game’s artwork, which shows The Traveler arriving above Earth. In Destiny’s lore, it was the discovery of The Traveler that heralded Earth’s Golden Age, during which a lost civilisation explored the Solar System and built colonies on Mars and Venus. When players begin their adventure in Destiny, the Golden Age has collapsed and The Traveler is found hovering low above Earth, over what is humanity’s only sanctuary on the planet – the last safe city on Earth.
As a Guardian of the City, players must fight countless battles against our enemies, venture out to explore our lost colonies and unlock the great mysteries of the past in order to protect their future on Earth.
What better way to celebrate the Traveler, which plays a crucial role in the story of Destiny, than by bringing one of the most iconic images of the entire campaign to » Continue Reading.
Crimes & Punishments, the new investigation game from Frogwares, today unveils a new gameplay video, presenting one of the many skills of Sherlock: the Art of Subversion! This new video is the second of a series of videos that will be released over the coming weeks until the release of the game on September 30 on Xbox One & Xbox 360.
Holmes is known for his high intelligence, and high level of deduction skill. However, Sherlock as he was imagined and written by Arthur Conan Doyle is also a master of disguise, a characteristic that Frogwares transposed in Crimes & Punishments, as one of the many skills the players will actively use to solve the 6 cases of the game.
In the video that follows we find at Baker Street, in Holmes’ bedroom, a wardrobe that holds the key to Holmes’ disguises, as well as a dressing table housing wigs, hats, glasses, different hair styles and beards. everything needed to transform into about anyone! This seems to be one of the more useful skills in the game, when it comes to approaching suspects who might be wary of a well-known detective, and get information – or even confessions – by faking being a member of their social class. You’ll also notice Holmes does a pretty good Irish accent too…
