Xbox 360 and PS3 Versions of Dying Light Canceled
Oct 29, 2014 - 9:05 AM - by Emabulator

Techland has announced that development on the previously-announced Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of Dying Light has now ceased. The game will be released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia.

Quote:
Dear Gamers,

As you probably know, we’re wrapping up the development of Dying Light, our biggest and most ambitious project to date. We spent the last three years making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience.

Much of this “next-gen feel” is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.

Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn’t run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.

To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available. Thanks to this, you’ll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on.

We hope you understand the hard choice we’ve had to make. With the launch just around the corner, we can’t wait to show you Dying Light in the state it was meant to be. We’re looking forward to your reactions and impressions as we release the game in January 2015.

PS+ November Free Games
Oct 29, 2014 - 9:05 AM - by Julio

IGN has the story.

Quote:
Starting with PS4 owners, it seems the rumours were indeed true and The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth will be one of the titles on offer. Joining the freshly released game will be the robot/western mish-mash SteamWorld Dig.

PS3 owners, meanwhile, will get shooter/strategy title Frozen Synapse Prime or, if that's not your cup of tea, Luftrausers is a modern arcade shooter where you try to complete objectives in order to power-up your aircraft. Last but by no means least. Vita owners have The Hungry Horde, in which you need to struggle and infect as many people as you can before the government nukes you and puzzler Escape Plan to look forward to.
Not too much to look forward to.

Oct 29, 2014 - 7:58 AM - by Evil Avatar

Do you want to know more? Bungie has announced that the first Destiny expansion pack, The Dark Below, will launch on December 9th.

Quote:
Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below Gears Up to Expand the Destiny Adventure on December 9

Activision and Bungie today announced that Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below will be available for download on December 9th. The Dark Belowmarks the first expansion to the universe since Destiny‘s launch in September and features all-new weapons and gear to earn through new story, cooperative and multiplayer activities.

“Destiny was created as a living universe, which has allowed us to improve the experience post launch in real-time,” says Harold Ryan, President of Bungie. “It also gives us insight into the things players are looking for in new content. We’ve seen from feedback that people want new activities, gear and weapons, and of course the immensely popular Raid. The community helps shape our development decisions and that’s really important to us.”

Destiny Expansion I: The Dark Below will feature the following

• New weapons, armour and gear to earn, including Legendary and Exotic items

• Light Level cap raised to 32 and five additional Bounty slots added

• New story quests and missions – after years hiding amongst the Hive shadows, a new character, Eris, has come forth bearing an ominous warning: The Hive seek to summon a god, Crota, to destroy the Earth. Find Eris in the Tower to take on special quests that include three new missions where you will increase your Light and earn new rewards

• New co-operative Strike, The Will of Crota, pits you and your Fireteam against Omnigul as she works to expand the Hive army at the command of her master, Crota

• Three new competitive multiplayer arenas

- Pantheon – set deep within the Black Garden in an ancient Vex temple that features Vex-designed landscapes and tight corridors
- Skyshock – an old interplanetary defence array that offers both vehicle and infantry engagements
- The Cauldron – an abandoned Hive ritual site that offers close-quarter combat

• New six-player Raid, Crota’s End, set deep within the depths of the Hellmouth

• PlayStation platforms will also get access to an exclusive co-operative Strike, The Undying Mind and an exotic weapon, and more (timed exclusive until at least Autumn 2015)

Players can purchase The Dark Below individually ($19.99/£19.99), or as part of the Destiny Expansion Pass ($34.99/£34.99), which includes both Expansion I and Expansion II, on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

Captain Marvel and Black Panther Movies Announced
Oct 28, 2014 - 4:31 PM - by Emabulator

Marvel has unveiled its slate of films running through 2019. Yahoo! News has the story.

Quote:
"Doctor Strange," ''Black Panther," ''Captain Marvel" and the "Inhumans" are joining the Marvel cinematic universe.

The studio unveiled the titles and release dates of its upcoming superhero films through 2019 during a Tuesday event in Hollywood. The schedule includes a mix of sequels featuring familiar faces and originals focused on Marvel characters that have yet to be introduced on the big screen.

The slate includes "Captain America: Civil War" and "Doctor Strange" in 2016; "Guardians of the Galaxy 2," ''Thor: Ragnarok" and "Black Panther" in 2017; "The Avengers: Infinity War — Part I," ''Captain Marvel" and "Inhumans" in 2018; and "The Avengers: Infinity War — Part II" in 2019.

The movies join next year's "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man."

"When we have information we want to reveal, we reveal it," Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige told fans and members of the media on stage at the El Capitan Theatre. "Sometimes that's in a press release, sometimes that's in San Diego Comic-Con — if everything comes together well — and sometimes that's on a random Tuesday at 11 a.m. in the morning."

EA is Making Lots of Money on Ultimate Team
Oct 28, 2014 - 4:00 PM - by Emabulator

EA is making a lot of money off of its Ultimate Team services. IGN has the story.

Quote:
Electonic Arts’ quarterly earnings for its fiscal Q2 2015 (ending September 30, 2014) exceeded expectations, with the Battlefield Hardline and FIFA 15 publisher earning a net revenue of more than $1.2 billion dollars.

FIFA, Madden NFL, and Hockey Ultimate Team contributed to this enormous success, growing 96% year over year. EA CEO Andrew Wilson credits mobile gaming, specifically relating to sports and Ultimate Team, as another massive success for EA, who have engaged more than 40 million players. Additionally, EA Access "has grown well beyond our expectations."

Digital growth, particularly around its Ultimate Team services, continues to see monumental success for EA. "By emphasizing player engagement and our digital live services, we’ve grown revenue, expanded gross margins and delivered EPS well above prior year and our guidance," said Chief Financial Officer Blake Jorgensen.

Farming Simulator 15 - Launch Trailer

Just a few days from its PC release this Thursday, we are pleased to lead you to the fields of Farming Simulator 15 one last time with the launch trailer! Here's a good opportunity to get a last sneak peek of some of the many activities that are yours to enjoy in the new generation of Farming Simulator, available on October 30 on PC, and early 2015 on consoles.

Farming Simulator is a real phenomenon in today's video gaming landscape, offering an experience very different from what we are used to: put away your battle gear, and get into your wellington boots before throwing yourself into the daily routine of the modern day farmer. Farming Simulator managed to seduce a broad range of players: younger gamers are attracted to the accessibility of the title and the sandbox aspect of the game, agricultural vehicle enthusiasts revel in the vast array of machinery reproduced in loving detail, and seasoned players enjoy its accurate and realistic simulation. Farming Simulator beat all the odds by becoming a real best seller with its latest 2013 version, with over 2.5 million copies sold worldwide. With a new graphics and physics engine, and many new features, Farming Simulator 15 is getting ready to take the franchise into a new era!

Twitch Changes Rules of Conduct to Forbid Topless and "Sexually Suggestive" Streaming
Oct 27, 2014 - 5:04 PM - by Emabulator

PC Gamer has the story.

Quote:
You may have the body of a Greek god, all rippling muscle and taut sinew, but no matter how good you look in a Speedo (or out of one), Twitch would very much appreciate it if you'd keep yourself covered up while you're streaming on its service. In fact, it's gone so far as to insist on it, with an update to its rules of conduct mandating that all streamers dress "appropriately."

"Nerds are sexy, and you're all magnificent, beautiful creatures, but let's try and keep this about the games, shall we?" the "Dress... appropriately" section of the Twitch Rules of Conduct states. "Wearing no clothing or sexually suggestive clothing—including lingerie, swimsuits, pasties, and undergarments—is prohibited, as well as any full nude torsos, which applies to both male and female broadcasters. You may have a great six-pack, but that's better shared on the beach during a 2-on-2 volleyball game blasting 'Playing with the Boys.'"

If you happen to be broadcasting from an "unbearably hot" location, the solution is simple. "Just crop the webcam to your face," the rule states. "Problem solved."

FFXIV: Heavensward adds Dark Knight
Oct 27, 2014 - 10:24 AM - by ashikenshin

A little bit of new info on Final Fantasy XIV's new expansion called Heavensward has been revealed at the Final Fantasy Fan Fest in London.

Quote:
New additions include:
  • Flying Mounts - Two types of flying mounts were revealed at the Fan Festival, a flying black chocobo and single-rider airships, both making it easier to explore the floating lands that will be featured prominently in the expansion.
  • Two New Beast Tribes - Heavensward also introduces two new beast tribes, the Vanu Vanu and the Gnath, as well as their primals, Bismarck, and Ravana, respectively.
  • Dark Knight Job - The first new job to be released in Heavensward was revealed: Dark Knight. This new job will serve as a tank, wields a two-handed greatsword, utilizes darkness-based actions and unlike the existing jobs in the game, will not feature a base class that later evolves into a job.
They also talked about revealing a new gun wielding job. Probably they are going to reveal it during the Tokyo fan fest, seems it's not what people expect (corsair.)

Bigger areas and a tank Dark Knight job? I'm hyped.

Nintendo's Semi-Secret Upgrade to Extend Wii U's Crappy Battery
Oct 25, 2014 - 12:38 PM - by Emabulator

Nintendo sells an upgraded battery pack for the Wii U GamePad, it's just hard to find. Wired has the story.

Quote:
Wii U owners (both of them) know how annoying the GamePad’s battery life can be. One minute you’re happily playing Metroid Fusion on the GamePad’s screen, the next you’re frantically trying to plug in the AC adapter without losing your primo spot on the couch.

As it turns out, although Nintendo built the GamePad with a wide slot that could hold a large lithium-ion battery, it only put a tiny one in there that only gets between 3-5 hours of juice. (And it never feels like that long.)

Nintendo does sell an expanded battery for GamePad that will run for 8 hours, but for some reason it seems like it doesn’t want you to know that. In the U.S., it’s not sold in retail stores and has only been sold, with spotty availability, on Nintendo’s direct-to-consumer site that sells spare parts and replacement manuals.

All this is to say that, as of this writing, you can get the expanded battery pack right now for $32 plus shipping. With Super Smash Bros. arriving in less than a month, now might be the time to upgrade. Who knows when it’ll go out of stock again?

Destiny: Iron Banner Getting an Overhaul
Oct 25, 2014 - 10:54 AM - by Emabulator

Bungie has posted its weekly update with word on some much needed changes to Destiny's Iron Banner event.

Quote:
Quitting
The goal of Iron Banner was to create a PVP playlist where players would push their game and their equipment harder than ever. To do so, the emphasis is on winning. But that meant players who found themselves losing would be inclined to leave.

The Iron Lords respect perseverance and tenacity. In the next Iron Banner, players will receive a Medallion of Iron on a loss. Upon their next win, each Medallion they carry will convert into a reputation gain almost equal to a win.

Armor and Weapons
The goal for Iron Banner gear was to provide Armor powerful enough to interest most players after a few weeks of gearing up, and aesthetically appealing to all players. But for very advanced characters, wearing Exotics and Raid gear, the equipment was not powerful enough to consider.

In the next Iron Banner, new exclusive reward Armor will be bumped to Level 30, but will still only be available in two slots. For advanced players, this will make them viable functional or visual sidegrades.

Iron Banner Weapons were already viable sidegrades for all but the most advanced players, but we would like to expand the options available. In the next Iron Banner, the weapon types available will go from two to four, divided between drops on match victory, and purchase from Lord Saladin in the Tower.

Crescent Bay is not the ideal place to spend one's golden years, especially since the once-idyllic retirement community has been beset by a series of deadly animal attacks from the ominous forest surrounding it. When grizzled war veteran Ambrose McKinley (Nick Damici) is forced into moving there by his yuppie son Will (Ethan Embry), the residents immediately take offense to Ambrose's abrasive personality. But that take-no-prisoners attitude may be just what Ambrose needs to survive as it becomes clear that the attacks are being caused by creatures that are neither animal nor man, and that the tight-knit community of Crescent Bay is hiding something truly sinister in its midst...

Featuring gameplay that reflects Codemasters’ fondly remembered miniature racing titles of the ‘90s, Toybox Turbos delivers a pick-up-and-play arcade racing extravaganza as gamers take a nostalgic tour of 18 obstacle and short-cut filled circuits inspired by childhood locations. Players will speed past spilt sticky jam on the kitchen table, dodge flaming Bunsen burners as they take their opponents back to school and zip past the runaway train in races around a railway set and more. Gamers can see Toybox Turbos in action in a new gameplay video which is now playing at toyboxturbos.com.

Bursting with classic retro racing fun, Toybox Turbos includes four-player local and online multiplayer options, perfect for turning friends into foes with one-more-go gaming sessions that race into the night. Whether playing locally or online, or with a mix, Toybox Turbos brings alive the glory days of multiplayer score-settling competition with rapid-fire rounds designed for all-action racing.

Toybox Turbos features 35 vehicles to collect and customise, ranging from sports cars and dragsters to emergency vehicles, taxis, ice cream vans, construction vehicles, milk float, moon buggies and more! Each can be raced in six super-charged game modes; players sprint for the line in Classic Races, set their best time in Time Trial, pass as many turbocharged toys as possible in Overtake, avoid getting wiped out by the tide in Escape, beat the clock in Countdown and take down bosses in Elimination mode. To gain the advantage, gamers can collect and use a range of power-ups spread liberally around each circuit, including, but not limited to, machine guns, mines, electronic pulses and, of course, giant hammers!

Gamers can find out more about Toybox Turbos and keep up with all the latest updates straight from the studio, by speeding over to toyboxturbos.com and facebook.com/toyboxturbos or by following the team at twitter.com/toyboxturbos.
