“Dragonborn” is the new name of the upcoming DLC that was allegedly uncovered in a PC update, While the year has gone by and a new one is slowly dawning upon us this doesn’t mean that the AAA title games of yesteryear will be easily forgotten! Just because people are now playing or waiting for new titles doesn’t mean that legendary games like Elder Scrolls V : Skyrim will go down easily! If anything the game is about to get even more spectacular as there are now rumors of Dragons Mounts being found in a PC Update of the game! Are you ready for the excitement? If you thought Hearthfire and Dawnguard were good wait till you get a look of what “Dragonborn” has to offer!
The biggest trouble with the PS3 is that no matter what connection type you are on you will never get your full speed and always be capped / limited from your true download speed, that and random instances of electricity tripping or any event that causes your PS3 to shut down unexpectedly can almost lead to a 50% chance of ending up with a corrupt file.
This guide will help remove the hassle stated above so that you can make your PC / Laptop do all your heavy downloading AND bring it back to your PS3 for installation too. Not to mention that you can keep the downloaded files in an archive in case you don’t own a large enough HDD for back up or other reasons.
Tomb Raider is going through another transformation, this time we are moving away from the earlier Tomb Raider games and explore a darker side of Lara Croft as she is stuck alone on an island surrounded by people and animals that are out to kill her, while the game looks good enough and is geared up for a 2013 release date there was a question of what goodies people who pre-order the game would be able to attain, it seems that the pre-order bonuses actually look very good and are more of collectors items except for the GameStop pre-order which is only an exclusive Tomb for Lara to raid.
Valve is giving gamers the opportunity of a life as it invites residents of Seattle / Bellevue to come to Valve headquarters to playtest some upcoming games and test out some of their hardware, you will of course have to eligible and will have to be chosen by Valve but this is a big step for the company. Currently the play testing is only restricted to Seattle / Bellevue residents but will soon be open to anyone in the US and soon the play testing will go international if not global!
Let’s hope a new Half-Life game is in the list of games to play test.
Devil May Cry may have turned over a new leaf with Capcom’s promise of no On-Disc content (even though Capcom more recently hid content on Resident Evil 6) But it seems that the same old habits of Pre-order bonuses are hard to break especially when the items for grabs are so tempting!. While the pre order bonuses are mostly weapon skins and a few bonus upgrades there isn’t really anything here that will unbalance the game or make it any easier as some pre-order bonuses tend to do, considering the fun of Devil May Cry has always been mindless or even strategic hack and slash it would be a shame to see the game fall prey to over powered weapons exclusive to preorder buyers.
The Walking Dead episodes have been the highlight of my year, I dove in expecting another Jurassic Park and I got something that was MILES ahead and higher than I had originally anticipated! The Walking Dead has been one of the best point and click adventure games I have played in recent years, with an easy learning curve and some mildly difficult puzzles that take a while to figure out this game can easily be picked up by an freshman into the world of point and click games and be hooked in minutes due to the compelling well told story especially following the events of Episode 2.
After all the excitement that has led up to the events of the end of Episode 3 fans everywhere have been waiting anxiously for Episode 4 and behold our wishes have been answered!
Resident Evil 6 is one of Capcom’s latest entry into the series, after releasing some spin off games in the past such as Resident Evil: Revelations on the 3DS and Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City for the PC / XBOX 360 and PS3 it seems that Resident Evil 6 might be the latest in the entry of on disc content, if you remember the unearthing of Battlefront 3 on Operation Raccoon City.
It seems that Capcom is still up to it’s old tricks again, as they have done many times before in the past it seems that they are still in the dirty habit of hiding On-Disc content and they have most recently done this in Resident Evil 6 which is quite the hot topic among gamers today and has received a large number of mixed reviews with most of them being against the game.
While it was only a matter of time before the disc was to be dissected and the content to be uncovered it seems that a YouTube user with the handle “FluffyQuack” (awesome name by the way) has already gone the extra step and unearthed the content for the public to see.
Earlier I talked about an Early Dishonored review giving the game a well deserved 9.5 out of 10 but it appears that CVG is not the only one giving this game praise, with sites The Escapist, Eurogamer, Polygon among a few of the critics to submit their(all positive) reviews of the game and with all well justified reviews of why the game is simply spectacular and a must play for any fans of the genre in specific. While the game is yet to be released it’s safe to say that this will definitely be a very good contender for multiplatform Game of the Year.
Early Dishonored review scores show that this game is definitely one of the most anticipated games of 2012, developed by Arkane Studios and shown across various game conventions and with many trailers to follow it the game has already earned a solid 9.5 from CVG (you can see their review Here)
While some gamers have been reported to beat the game in only a matter of 4 hours but it is obvious that these are simple speed runs of the game as with most games on launch. The game will easily take 20+ hours if you take your time and want the fullest enjoyment, much like Deus Ex: Human Revolution.
The upcoming PlayStation Vita Title “Puppeteer” is perhaps one of the greatest incentives to buy a PlayStation Vita along with many current and upcoming titles as this game will give you the fullest Vita experience but what gamers wouldn’t know until now was the duration of the game, where games last only a mere 7-8 hours if not a bit longer for total completion it seems that the time flies by like nothing and doesn’t even feel like the mentioned 7-8 hours but it seems that Puppeteer will change all that when Gavin Moore (The Director) has stated that the game in it’s initial run without most of the collectibles will alone be a long 15 hours not to mention that the collectibles alone are more than 100 (he mentions they are in the 3 digit figure)
Capcom and EA are synonymous with having on disc content locked away and have been known to follow this practice in many previous and latest games but it seems that Capcom is having a change of heart as they boldly claim that Devil May Cry (the upcoming reboot) will NOT have on disc content locked away as “future DLC” and they are indeed planning on shipping a complete game. This seems too good to be true consider the company is infamous for their after launch DLC practices with many games in the past but maybe they are finally turning over a new leaf.
Fans were pleased to hear that Bioware was working on making a Mass Effect Trilogy pack for the PC / XBOX 360 and the PS3, the former being the only platform without Mass Effect 1 will finally be able to see it come true and some proud trophy hunter can get to work on earning his platinum, but today it was revealed that all 3 games may not feature their DLC. The distribution of DLC on platforms vary but for the most part the console users (XBOX 360 and PS3) seem to be getting the short end of the stick with the Mass Effect Trilogy pack but PC users aren’t so lucky too.
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
