Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag has officially been announced as one of the first games to make a debut on the next generation of consoles, with the PlayStation 4 version already confirmed and Ubisoft already confirming that the game will come with additional content, fans of the game were quite anxious to see actual gameplay running on the next generation console. While the next Xbox is set to be revealed this coming May 21st and the PlayStation 4 has put a lot of cards on the table with their February reveal and a whole lot of surprise announcements as of GDC, we have details on the features and other perks of the console but no eyes on the console itself.
The Last of Us comes from the brilliant minds who were behind the Jak and Daxter Trilogy on the PlayStation 2 and more importantly helped introduce the spectacular Uncharted trilogy on the PlayStation 3. The game will be unlike any of their any other games because it will offer a whole other side that was previously alien to anyone who has played a Naughty Dog game, The Last of Us paints us a dark and gritty future where the weak die and the strong survive, no one helps deliver this message better than Ellie, one of the games protagonists.
Metro: Last Light is a successor to a very under appreciated FPS released a few years back, while DLC has caught on as a mainstream trend, Metro: Last Light has just pushed the final straw that broke the camels back. Ranger Mode is a difficulty setting that will truly give players the deepest experience of the horror segments of the game, but to avail it you either have to pre-order the game or buy it post-launch as for $5 which is absolutely absurd.
To say that the Nintendo Wii-U has been taking quite a beating since its release would be a massive understatement, the company has done every possible measure to help boost the sales of the console but all of their attempts ultimately end up in vain. To help add fuel to this inferno, there doesn’t seem to be any optimism from EA regarding their next-gen titles such as Battlefield 4 making its way to the console.
Diablo 3 is a game that could have achieved the greatness of its predecessors but due to many launch day problems and post launch issues the game never really got the acclaim that the fans believed they deserved. The biggest complaint being the always online making the game a challenge to play and of course was also a deal breaker to many gamers but it appears that the latest bug may have spelled imminent doom for the game as a new exploit allowed thousands if not more players to duplicate millions in gold, buy out the auction house and completely crash the in game economy.
Star Wars Battlefront 3 is a modern day tragedy in gaming, a game that has gone through the development inferno has reared its head several times in the past but with the closure of Lucasarts studio by Disney, it is safe to say that the fate of this game has been sealed. Some newer footage has surfaced that shows the game in the Alpha stage of development, the game was going to be leaps and bounds above the previous games in the series but it got axed when it was at a 90% completion.
GTA 5 is without the slightest shadow of a doubt the single most highly anticipated video game this coming year, while GTA 4 had a spectacular reception and was remarked to be a significant step in the series, GTA 5 looks like it is going to be leaps and bounds above any of the other games. For starters the game boasts a better color palette that should definitely help the players eyes relax after the muddy color settings of GTA 4.
The latest batch of Screenshots show us that Franklin, Micheal and Trevor are up to no good as they do a series of hijinks.
Borderlands 2 is a spectacular RPG FPS that truly rocked the gaming world last year, while the game is truly one of those that deserves to be purchased with a Season Pass, with each new DLC bringing in hours of fun and a new character class for the players to play as, The latest DLC has made its way to twitter by accident when one of the writers of the title decided to tweet a picture of himself lying on a Sofa but neglected to see the Tiny Tina promotional stand in the background, while the tweet has since been deleted we are all aware of the vigilant internet users who saved the picture as soon as it was revealed.
Tired of the traditional “Slide to Unlock” notification? what if there was a faster way and one that didn’t require a steady hand? This handy tweak takes away the task of sliding and replaces it with the act of pinching your lockscreen so that you can unlock it. Another benefit is that the unlock is silent so its an ideal way to unlock your iDevice in case you don’t want anyone to hear the unlocking sound then tweak is also very handy, but given the nature of the tweak it really can’t be shown in screenshots but it does work and is yet again very easy to install and use, This is where “Pinch To Unlock” can be really useful.
Those of us who have a Nintendo DS should make it their duty to play a large library of games before claiming to be true enthusiasts of the handheld, with Scribblenauts and Super Scribblesnauts being on said list. Both the games were absolutely superb, fluid and gave players of all ages the level of creativity very few games at the time could give on a handheld device. While Scribblenauts itself was a very limiting game the game got a much needed overhaul in Super Scribblenauts which was easily the series better game, Scribblenauts has a simple premise. It has no story to it, just endless imagination and creativity. You are presented a situation throughout the game via the levels and are given the simple and at times daunting task of collecting “Starites” It can be as simple as getting a Starite off a tree or even as challenging as solving a series of riddles to be rewarded with the Starite at the end of it all. This is where Scribblenauts Remix comes in for the iOS so that players can dive into the world of imagination and near endless possibilities.
