Harley Quinn DLC for Arkham Knight is "painfully brief" #ArkhamKnight
Jul 04, 2015 - 1:29 AM - by sai tyrus

Destructoid reports:

Quote:
Harley Quinn is at it again this time with a pre-order exclusive DLC (yuck) for Batman: Arkham Knight. I have good news for everyone who didn't bother pre-ordering -- you aren't missing much.

The entire add-on basically amounts to less than 30 minutes of the same core gameplay as Knight, minus the Batmobile-fest...

The entire affair is far too linear, taking place in the Blüdhaven Police Department. It's a prequel, so you know exactly how it plays out if you watch the intro, with a bit of stupid Penguin chatter (I never really liked Arkham's rendition of him) littered between the loose collections of challenge rooms. It all culminates with a final battle with a major hero from the story that uses the tired "throw adds at the player until he wins or loses" mechanic.

There are some bright spots, like the idea of Harleen's inner self trying to reason with her insane "Harley" personality, but those concepts aren't really explored in half an hour. If you're a huge fan of Harley you can buy it this fall once its "pre-order exclusivity" (so dumb) is up, or you can just wait for the Game of the Year Edition where it will most likely appear as well. The same goes for the GameStop exclusive Red Hood pack, the PS4 exclusive Scarecrow DLC, and all the costume exclusives.

PCGamesN "Star Wars Battlefront’s Hoth leaves us cold" #StarWars #Battlefront
Jul 03, 2015 - 12:59 AM - by Emabulator

PCGamesN has posted a preview of Star Wars Battlefront, after playing the game demo at E3 2015.

Quote:
It just… it just left me a bit cold. Despite looking and sounding like Star Wars, it didn’t feel like Star Wars. It felt like… another Battlefield.

The clue in what has happened with Star Wars Battlefront is in the studio that’s behind it: DICE. While the original Star Wars Battlefront games were developed by the (now defunct) Pandemic Studios, Star Wars Battlefront is developed by the studio that’s brought us countless iterations of the Battlefield series. As a result, DICE aren’t going to “fix what’s broken” with Battlefield for Battlefront, and as a result this is absolutely Star Wars Battlefield in all but name.

If you love and play Battlefield a lot, this is actually great. Because you can slot right into playing Star Wars Battlefront without blinking; it plays so much like a version of Battlefield with an (incredibly impressive) Star Wars skin that it’s actually rather jarring. The guns feel like Battlefield guns, but they go “pew pew” instead of “bang bang”. Movement feels like moving around in Battlefield. And the special (disappointingly limited) uses of X-Wings and TIE Fighters? If you want, just re-arrange this brain-teaser: “Battlefield, feels like.”

If this all sounds rather harsh (after all, if you ignore the absolutely terrible state Battlefield 4 shipped in, Battlefield is great!) maybe it is. But after a ten year break and impressive hype, it’s strange to be playing in what should be the playground of my dreams—the most accurately realised attack on Hoth I’ve ever seen in a game—and to find it utterly un-cinematic and instead deeply normal, like playing Battlefield 4 with the Star Wars score on in the background.

Together, we created a beautiful and touching experience, a dark, yet funny game full for fairy-tale evil, true innocence and capricious magic. ”

First Image from "Ash vs The Evil Dead" #Starz #EvilDead #AshVsEvilDead
Jul 02, 2015 - 5:11 AM - by sai tyrus

Via Entertainment Weekly:

Quote:
Yep, Campbell will once again be playing everyone’s favorite dim-witted warrior when Starz resurrects the Evil Dead franchise this fall with 10 episodes of Ash vs Evil Dead. As you can tell from the image above, Ash (who is still a stock boy) is once again ready to face his demons, and this time he’s got two folks to help him get the job done in fellow Value Stop employees Pablo (Ray Santiago) and Kelly (Dana Delorenzo), seen above.

So what has Ash been up to for the past two decades? “Not much!” says Campbell. “He was perfectly happy doing basically nothing: telling lies about how he lost his hand in bars late at night. That was basically his MO. So, he’s not really the guy who should be dealing with this right now. But…he is. He’s our guy!”

He’s also the guy who yet again is accidently responsible for unleashing the evil dead back upon the world. “He’s the only one stupid enough to really tamper with those spirits,” says Sam Raimi, who directed the first episode of the new series. “And he does. But he’s also still a really good monster fighter. So, he’s also going to be kicking some deadite buttocks, if you’ll pardon the French.”

“It’s The Searchers with carnage and mayhem,” adds Campbell of the newest chapter in the Evil Dead saga. “I’m relegated a little bit into the John Wayne mode these days with my team—the young, virile, evil fighters who will pair up with Ash and take on this nemesis: this never ending, ever evolving nemesis.”

Radeon vs. GeForce: PC Gamer Report Card
Jul 02, 2015 - 3:12 AM - by Rommel

The release of the Fury X is finally a past event, rather than a rumor-mill generating promise. PC Gamer pit the two GPU companies against one another to determine which card should power your way through the five minutes of Battlefield 4 you can manage before it crashes to desktop or the attempts to play Batman: Arkham Knight before a necessary restart to free the caped crusader when he's stuck in a wall. The article goes beyond the top end of Titans, Furies and Tis, examining each relevant price tier for how the two companies truly stack up. Who takes it? Whose cuisine reigns supreme?

Quote:
First off, neither company deserves your abiding loyalty. Don’t blindly follow AMD or Nvidia from one graphics card release to the next, singing their praises over the competition. It should go without saying that you should head where the best product is. And when we’re talking graphics cards, the best product isn’t just about hardware. It's about driver performance and updates. It's about software and exclusive features. And it's about the accessories that work with those graphics cards, like G-Sync and FreeSync monitors.
Spoiler Warning: Nvidia takes the battle and it isn't even close. The best the article can say about the current state of AMD is that it is closer than before to parity. Also, while Team Green has the better Exclusive Features such as PhysX and Gameworks, the author supports open source features such as TressFX are better for the industry long term. A poor showing for AMD, especially since the article was written before the price drop of the GTX 980 Ti.

Report: Warner Knew Batman: Arkham Knight for PC was in a "Horrible State" #Batman
Jul 01, 2015 - 12:42 PM - by Emabulator

VG247 has the story.

Quote:
Speaking with Kokatu under the condition of anonymity, the sources stated there were only 10 testers assigned to the title, where are there were over 100 on the QA team for the console versions. One reason for the larger QA team for the PS4 and Xbox One versions was due to “getting it to work on consoles was impossible for months.”

“It’s pretty rich for WB to act like they had no idea the [PC] game was in such a horrible state,” said on of the PC testers. “It’s been like this for months and all the problems we see now were the exact same, unchanged, almost a year ago.”

Reportedly, some testers found up to 100 bugs per day with the developers fixing “what they could” as crunch time was in full force. Once main features were implemented, bug fixing became a priority, but due to the game being finished, in order to catch up testers were restricted as to what they “can or can’t bug, to ensure that [the devs] can catch up.”

Another source stated bug-checking was set at 720p, which tended to perform better than when played at higher resolutions. So, instead of contracting bug testing out to company’s specializing in PC testing on a variety of hardware configurations, Warner kept testing in-house.

The source said this was due to concerns that issues with the PC version would leak.

I've been playing the insane mod, Brutal Doom, which makes a lot of changes to our beloved bloody shooter:

Quote:
Brutal Doom brings many familiar modern conventions to the title, with the ability to aim-down-sights (ADS), jump, dodge, and even adds some new weapons enemy behavior. Oh, and the ridiculous gore of the original has been dialed up to about ten. It’s so over the top, it’s downright laughable.
UPDATE: I included instructions with links to essential mod tools and videos in the original post for those who want to take a crack at Brutal Doom, which is compatible with any version of Doom or Doom 2.

Creed Trailer #Stalone #creed #Creedmovie
Jun 30, 2015 - 6:59 PM - by Evil Avatar

Quote:
From Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures, Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema comes award-winning filmmaker Ryan Coogler’s “Creed.” The film explores a new chapter in the “Rocky” story and stars Academy Award nominee Sylvester Stallone in his iconic role. The film also reunites Coogler with his “Fruitvale Station” star Michael B. Jordan as the son of Apollo Creed.

Adonis Johnson (Jordan) never knew his famous father, world heavyweight champion Apollo Creed, who died before he was born. Still, there’s no denying that boxing is in his blood, so Adonis heads to Philadelphia, the site of Apollo Creed’s legendary match with a tough upstart named Rocky Balboa.

Once in the City of Brotherly Love, Adonis tracks Rocky (Stallone) down and asks him to be his trainer. Despite his insistence that he is out of the fight game for good, Rocky sees in Adonis the strength and determination he had known in Apollo—the fierce rival who became his closest friend. Agreeing to take him on, Rocky trains the young fighter, even as the former champ is battling an opponent more deadly than any he faced in the ring.

With Rocky in his corner, it isn’t long before Adonis gets his own shot at the title…but can he develop not only the drive but also the heart of a true fighter, in time to get into the ring?

Australia Has Banned Over 200 Games in Four Months #GamerGate
Jun 30, 2015 - 5:11 PM - by Emabulator

The Escapist is reporting that the Australian government has "refused classification to more computer games in the past four months than in the previous two decades."

Quote:
An estimated 220 online games have been refused classification in Australia in the past four months, in contrast to only about 50 that were refused between 1994 and 2014. According to an ABC Australia report, the sharp increase in Refused Classification (RC) online games results from a new classification method implemented by the Classification Board.

On March 10, the Australian Classification Board announced a new trial that focused on the classification of online games. "The Minister for Justice has announced that Australia has joined the International Age Rating Coalition (IARC)," the notice reads. "IARC is a partnership of government and industry content classification authorities from around the world, including the United States, Canada, Europe and Brazil."

"The Minister also announced that Australia is preparing to trial IARC's new tool for classifying mobile and online games."

The pilot will officially commence on July 1.

"Due to the online explosion, there are hundreds of thousands - if not millions - of games currently available online," a spokesperson from the Attorney-General's Department said. "It is not realistic or practicable for the Classification Board to manually classify each of them."
Not So Fun Fact: Saints Row IV is banned in Australia.

Destiny's New Iron Banner Having Some Issues #Destiny #Bungie
Jun 30, 2015 - 3:27 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the gory details.

Quote:
Destiny's limited-time Iron Banner multiplayer event returned today, but things didn't go exactly to plan.

Players are reporting experiencing the "Anteater" error, which is kicking them from matches. Not only that, but Bungie says Iron Banner gains are not always applying as they should.

The developer is looking into these issues, and asks players to "stand by" for updates.

"We are actively investigating reports that Iron Banner gains are not being granted after matches," Bungie wrote on Twitter at 11:52 AM PDT, under two hours after Iron Banner went live at 10 AM PDT.

The "gains" that Bungie is referring to are new Iron Banner rewards, which include a Pulse Rifle called Skorri's Revenge, among other gear.

Rumors on Visceral's Star Wars Game Emerge #StarWars #1313
Jun 30, 2015 - 1:13 AM - by sai tyrus

PC Gamer has the story:

Quote:
Voice actor Nolan North revealed some titbits about the game during a panel at Metrocon, which was recorded and posted online here. He doesn't appear to be lending his throat to Visceral's game, but he does seem to know a fair bit about it: according to North, it's styled after the Uncharted series. As Uncharted writer Amy Hennig is working on the game, that's not entirely surprising.

"If you're a big fan of Amy Hennig and her style of story, she's gone to EA and is going to reboot a brand new Star Wars franchise in the style of Uncharted," North said, while talking about Hennig's departure from Naughty Dog. "I happen to know a lot about it and it's going to be awesome."

When asked if Visceral's still-unannounced game was a revived Star Wars 1313, North replied that it was "different" but "along the same lines".
Visceral's upcoming Star Wars game is rumoured to be open world, but we still barely know anything about it.

Star Citizen FPS Module Delayed #StarMarine #StarCitizen
Jun 30, 2015 - 1:07 AM - by sai tyrus

Via the Star Citizen Blog:

Quote:
When will we see Star Marine? Tonight, I don’t have an absolute answer for you. What I will tell you is that we know exactly what we have to do, and we’re already well on our way to doing it. With allocation of additional resources and increased cross-studio focus on the FPS portion of the game we are on our way… we’re just not there quite yet. I’m confident that with the significant updates and changes to the backend architecture discussed above that we will have an experience worthy of the Star Citizen name; it’s just going to take some additional integration and testing. On the public side, I know that it’s time to open up our communications on the Star Marine rollout process: starting with this message and continuing each week, we will provide a high level update on the challenges just as we did for Arena Commander.

We ended the 2012 pledge campaign with ‘The Pledge,’ in which I outlined our new company’s goals to be open about our process. Today, I want to rededicate ourselves to this: I can’t promise you we’ll meet every internal deadline or that every decision we make is something you’ll agree with. There will be challenges that we struggle to overcome, and we will never be able to predict all of these with certainty…but I can promise you we will keep you informed and that we will not stop working until the game is done right. After all, that’s why we’re here in the first place. Your support is letting us create the game we want to make before anything else. Because of you, we have the freedom to make sure things work the way we want, even if it takes more time and more effort. We won’t let you down!

Mojang closing Scrolls #Scrolls
Jun 30, 2015 - 12:57 AM - by sai tyrus

Via PC Gamer:

Quote:
Scrolls, Mojang's collectible card/strategy game, is no more. The studio announced today that the game "can no longer sustain continuous development," and while it promised to keep the servers running until at least July of 2016, no new features or card sets will be added.

The studio implied that smaller updates may still be forthcoming, however, as it is "planning to keep a close eye on game balance." It will also remain available for purchase "for the time being," with funds going to keep Scrolls online and playable for as long as possible.

"We’ve had a great time working on Scrolls, and appreciate every last player who’s downloaded our game," Mojang wrote. "Extra big thanks to the most dedicated members of our community; some of you have logged in almost every day since release and dedicated a large portion of your time to dominating the leaderboards and taking care of new players."

Rebellion working on Battlezone 1998 Remaster #Battlezone
Jun 29, 2015 - 6:52 PM - by Evil Avatar

An open letter to Battlezone fans

Dear Battlezone fans

Firstly, thank you so much for all the great feedback we’ve received following the unveiling of our Battlezone reboot for virtual reality devices.

Having to keep quiet about something we’re crazy excited for has been a challenge, so to finally showcase it at E3 and see so many people just as excited for the game was really gratifying.

As our teaser trailer revealed, our VR version of Battlezone is very much a reboot of Atari’s 1980 arcade classic, a game we’re very fond of at Rebellion. However, we also know that a number of you are fans of the 1998 and 1999 Battlezone games released by Activision that re-imagined the franchise as a groundbreaking hybrid of FPS and RTS gameplay. Naturally when we made our announcement last week some of you asked, “But what about the newer Battlezone games? What are you doing with them?”

Well, we’ve read your comments, articles, emails and posts and we’ve seen your love for these games – so we wanted to make another brief announcement:

We’re very pleased to reveal that we’re also working on a remaster of the 1998 Battlezone for PC.

It’s still early days but when we’re ready to show you more you’ll be the first to know. All we can say for now is that whichever vision of Battlezone you love, you’ve not been forgotten!

Thanks for reading, The Rebellion team

Halo 5: Guardians Dev Explains How Microtransactions Work in Multiplayer #Halo5
Jun 29, 2015 - 4:06 PM - by Emabulator

GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
343 already promised that only cosmetic items would be allowed in the game's Arena multiplayer mode, but some fans questioned the inclusion of gear and vehicle REQ Packs in the Warzone mode. In a community question and answer on the Halo Waypoint website, the developer has clarified that there are systems in place to prevent Warzone from becoming pay-to-win.

When asked about the packs, designer Josh Holmes explained that these items will not be immediately deployable in a multiplayer match. Rather, players have to kill enemies and achieve objectives to gain enough "energy" to use them.

"Deployment of REQ items is limited by the REQ Level and Energy systems that govern the Warzone experience," Holmes wrote. "Each REQ item costs a certain amount of Energy to deploy. Everybody starts at REQ Level 1 at the beginning of each match and you gain levels based on your actions in the game."

He continued: "Capturing bases, killing AI, taking out AI Bosses and killing enemy players will help you level up within the match. The more powerful the REQ, the more energy you need to deploy it--so, for example, you can spend two energy points to deploy a Warthog or save up until you reach REQ Level 5 and spend all of your energy to deploy a more powerful Banshee. Energy replenishes at a set rate over time, and you gain a bonus energy point every time you level up."

He also clarified the different tiers of REQ Packs available to purchase. "Players will be able to redeem Requisition Points for three different tiers of REQ Packs in the game: Bronze, Silver and Gold. We also offer Premium tier packs as part of the [special editions] of the game. Each level of REQ Pack determines the quality of the REQs inside. For example, a Gold REQ Pack has a chance of including Legendary requisitions, while a Bronze REQ Pack does not."

X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut Movie Clip #XMen
Jun 29, 2015 - 11:22 AM - by Emabulator

Quote:
In the theatrical release of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," the future X-Men had to overcome overwhelming odds in order for Kitty Pryde (Ellen Page) to send Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) into the past, so that he could warn a young Professor X (James MacAvoy) and Magneto (Michael Fassbender) about the dire consequences of the Sentinel Program. In the upcoming Rogue Cut of that film, Kitty gets swapped out for Rogue (Anna Paquin) due to as-of-yet unknown circumstances, and the first scene from that extended cut has just been released.

In this first clip from "X-Men: Days of Future Past - The Rogue Cut," an aging Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Iceman (Shawn Ashmore) must force Rogue out of a deep slumber for their cause. She is in what appears to be a Cerebro-like room; when she regains consciousness, she becomes startled when she sees Magneto, which hints that they may have had a falling out shortly before she ended up where she was in the clip.

Mod Allows you to play as other characters in Arkham Knight #ArkhamKnight
Jun 29, 2015 - 4:10 AM - by sai tyrus


Red Hood plays for keeps.

Via PCGamesN:

Quote:
The Batman: Arkham Knight Playable Characters mod makes Red Hood, Harley Quinn, Nightwing, Robin, Azrael, Bruce Wayne, Catwoman, Commissioner Gordon, the Joker, and GCPD Officer Owens available to play as instead of Batman. You can see them all in action in the video above. The mod only works for free-roaming Gotham City.

You can download the mod here, and instructions for installing are in the YouTube video description. Remember this isn’t a Steam Workshop mod, so backup your files, and do so at your own risk.

Of course, you’ll only want to install the mod provided you’re one of very few people who actually have Batman: Arkham Knight running acceptably on your system. Thanks to a disastrous launch filled with bugs and glitches, Arkham Knight has been withdrawn from sale, and you can get a refund on the game from Steam should you wish.

Heroes vs Villains Mode rumored to return in #Battlefront #StarWarsBattlefront
Jun 29, 2015 - 3:59 AM - by sai tyrus

Via PC Gamer:

Quote:
We know that EA's upcoming, annoyingly numberless Star Wars Battlefront will feature playable goodies and baddies including Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader—but what we don't know is whether the celebrated Heroes vs Villains mode will return from Battlefront 2. Well, I say we don't know that, but we kind of do now, thanks to the Spanish version of the official website. It's just blabbed some or all of the multiplayer modes that will be included in the game: Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, Cargo and Heroes vs Villains.

Redditor thementorassassin16 noticed said blabbing, translating it from the Spanish thusly:

"In addition to Walker Assault, Star Wars Battlefront will feature immersive, fun-filled multiplayer modes including Supremacy, Fighter Squadron, Blast, Drop Zone, Cargo, and Heroes vs Villains mode, that will be announced in the months ahead. Stay tuned for more information on these exciting multiplayer modes."

Batman: Arkham Knight PC Patch Released #Batman
Jun 27, 2015 - 5:55 PM - by Emabulator

Warner Bros. and Rocksteady Studios have released the first patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. GameSpot has the details.

Quote:
Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developer Rocksteady have released a patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight which fixes a bug that disabled the game's rain effects and other issues, the companies have announced.

Warner Bros. Community Admin Yorick said that the patch is being released now, and that the companies will continue to release interim patches while it continues to work on improving performance issues the game suffered from since it launched on PC last week.

Updates in the first patch include:
  • Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game
  • Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
  • Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
  • Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when turning off Motion Blur in BmSystemSettings.ini. A future patch will enable this in the graphics settings menu
"Rocksteady is leading our team of developers and partners as we work on the PC performance issues that players have been encountering," Warner Bros. said. "The work is significant and while we are making good progress on improving performance, it will take some time to ensure that we get the right fixes in place "
