Geo-Wars-3-Evolve

Great news for all owners of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions. Sierra have announced that an update to the game in the form of Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions Evolved will be released at the end of the month and if you own Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, your game updates for free.

The contents of the update includes 40 additional adventure mode stages, including boss battles, grid shapes and gameplay types. New super abilities in the form of the Sweeper drone and the Detonator. The level system has also been revised to make progression in the game easier, but if you thought it was to easy in the first place a Hardcore mode has been included, challenging players to complete 20 levels without using a super ability.

For existing owners the game will update to the new version on March 31st, both on Xbox One and Xbox 360. However if you haven’t already bought the game then you can buy the fully updated version from the online store from the 31st.

Rosetta Stone app coming to Xbox One

RosettaStone1

The well-known language learning software Rosetta Stone has announced that its app is coming to the Xbox One

The company website states;

Rosetta Stone’s new application teaches English and Spanish by way of immersive simulation. Virtual travel experiences teach you the vocabulary and grammar necessary for real-world interactions. So before you book a flight to a foreign destination, grab your controller. You’ll explore several locations in the Discovery Zone and chat with the characters you find there. In the Training Zone, you’ll solidify the concepts you encountered with study recommendations, cultural tips, phrase books, and of course, more games! Keep track of your achievements, and keep practicing until you get a perfect score. With Rosetta Stone’s proven technology-based immersion method in a video-game interface, who knew language learning could be so fun.

So at the moment Spanish is the way forward but I’m guessing if the application is successful then more languages will be added. Who knows this could mean the end to all subtitles in games like Battlefield and Call of Duty.

For those who don’t know, Blood Bowl is American Football meets the fantasy world of Warhammer, and each team fights it way to victory by any means possible, legal or illegal.

It also showcases the brand new graphics engine being used by developers Cyanide Studio and the attention to detail that they are working on to make this a crisp, modern and fresh looking title.

TIX’s day out at Rezzed

EGX2015

Now I love games and when Dave emailed me and asked if I wanted to go to EGX:Rezzed in London for TiX I jumped at the chance, who wouldn’t. So with book and pen in hand I trundled off on the Thursday with my press pass like it was my first day at school. Situated at the Tobacco docks in London it was a great venue for developers of all shapes and sizes to come and show us what’s coming to console and PC (windows 10) in the up and coming months.

Walking through the door I already had my shortlist of games I wanted to see, thanks to Phil and myself, and headed straight for the ID@Xbox room. The room was busy with gamers, developers and press but I still found that I had enough room to walk around and spend some quality time on the games, chatting and sharing views and opinions with like-minded people. My main focus here though was several key titles, SMITE, Soul Axiom, Super Dungeon Bro’s and Shovel Knights but that’s not to say there are several other great titles coming, including Goat Simulator (that everyone is mad about, apart from me).

SMITE – Having received the Alpha invite 24hrs before I’d already had a taste for the game and wasn’t disappointed. The game is a smooth (yet frustrating at times) combat sim where you get to level up characters and earn new skills while you fight. All at the same time of being the god you want. It’s a good game but  I found it a bit repetitive especially when you pick the wrong god to fight with. I know there is a lot of demand from people to get a taste of this game so keep you eyes open and » Continue Reading.

Raptr walks away from consoles

raprt2

Raptr the well-known and loved achievement and progress tracking website has announced that it’s no longer focusing support on consoles and will direct all of its attention to PC’s.

Up until the release of the Xbox One, Raptr was one of the main tools to track progress and achievements on the Xbox 360 and is used by a wide number of both PC and console players including myself. On the release of the Xbox One the ability to track progress on the new console stopped with frustrated users being told this was down to the changes that Xbox were implementing, constantly breaking their system, and the only option was to track progress manually.

Well today it seems that it’s finally all over as an email sent from Team Raptr clearly states PC’s are the way for them to go.

When Raptr started out, we offered Steam and XBL achievements and PSN trophy tracking, PC/Xbox 360 gameplay tracking, plus unified buddy lists and chat. As Raptr grew, we realized there was a big demand for features that improved the PC gaming experience, such as game optimizations, easy Twitch streaming, and lightweight video capture. But on the console side, you may have noticed some features stopped updating, as changes to Xbox Live and PSN would repeatedly break our system. We believe our mission is to make PC gaming fun and effortless, and therefore we’ve decided to focus our resources on PC gaming exclusively. We will retire all remaining console support in the near future. We’d like to thank console gamers for using Raptr, and we hope you’ll check out our PC gaming features and stick around!

However on a closing note they did mention that console owners could move to another service called Playfire » Continue Reading.

DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition review

DmC_Announcement_Screen_004_1418642206

DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition is the remastered edition of the 2013 DmC: Devil May Cry title originally released for Xbox 360 and other platforms. The original title, an action-adventure hack and slash video game developed by Ninja Theory and published by Capcom is the fifth instalment of the Devil May Cry series. The Definitive Edition released this month includes all DLC, new costumes and new gameplay features such as a manual targeting system.

DmC: Devil May Cry Definitive Edition tells the story of Dante, a Nephilim (born of an angel mother and demon father), who embarks on a journey of revenge. The game is set in Limbo City, a city controlled by demons led by the King of Demons, Mundus. During an opening sequence in which we are introduced to the various control mechanics, we are also introduced to Kat, a member of ‘The Order’, a rogue vigilante organization led by the mysterious Vergil, intent on exposing the demons and releasing the world from their control. Having helped to save your life, Kat insists on you escorting her to meet Vergil who is waiting for you in The Orders Head Quarters. Having met Vergil, the extended introductory mission continues whilst we get to grips with new weapons and abilities and then learning the shocking news that Vergil is your brother. Vergil explains that Mundus killed your mother and enslaved your father and he needs your help to set things right, of course, you agree and the main body of the game begins.

It is easy to feel like DmC is way to over the top, but that’s part of its charm. Don’t forget that the majority of humans in the game don’t realise that angels and demons exists, in fact » Continue Reading.
