Celebrating the launch of Titanfall 2, AusGamers favourite son Joab Gilroy will be leading a team of AusGamers pilots into the mech-filled trenches to take on the evil forces of planet Stevivor and their dressed-in-black military leader Luke Lawrie. The fate of the galaxy rests in the capable hands of one Joab Gilroy. Or, to put it simply, AusGamers will be going up against Stevivor to prove once and for all that, yep, Joab is really good at games. Which is why we've got our chants ready for the 6:30 PM event.
The Xbox Elite controller may seem a little silly with its Ancient Antiquity from the Qing Dynasty-like pricing, but it's one solid and well built controller. So good in fact that it continues to sell extremely well and is the pad of choice for pro Xbox gamers. At the time Sony said something along the lines of "yeah, that's not for us", but in a recent announcement it looks like PlayStation 4 is getting it's own line of pro controllers, thanks to partnerships with Razer and Nacon.
After last week's debut it looks like we've got a little bit longer to wait before Nintendo are ready to give us full details on it's new home gaming console, the Nintendo Switch. Stuff like the price point, peripherals, what's under the hood, and what launch titles we can expect. Plus that small little detail of actual in-game footage. Scheduling the event for January 13 makes a lot of sense as we're just about to head into the holiday season and every few days another AAA game gets released.
With a directorial career spanning many years and "films" like House of the Dead (2003), Alone in the Dark (2005), In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2007), Postal (2007), Far Cry (2008), BloodRayne: The Third Reich (2011), and many more, "film" director Uwe Boll has announced that he's calling it quits. Citing declining Blu-ray and DVD sales alongside self-financing his movies, the move comes with a sense of bitterness towards the industry. And it's lack of Uwe Boll support.
PlayStation Plus members can expect a pair of indie titles next month with both Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture and the B-movie inspired The Deadly Tower of Monsters being free for PS4. Additional PS4 and PS Vita titles will also be free, including PS4 cross-buy capability for the two PS Vita offerings -- Letter Quest Remastered and a game and incomplete mathematical equation called Pumped BMX+.
As in actual Sweet Rolls. To celebrate the launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition, Bethesda has teamed up with Bourke Street Bakery to create the famous Sweet Rolls. Everyone across Tamriel adores them, and now you can too. Thousands will be given away for free on Saturday and Sunday at all eleven Bourke Street Bakery locations. All you need to do is ask for one, which means you won't have to steal one.
With only a week break between Season 2 ending and Season 3 firing up. And with a new season of Overwatch competitive play we can expect to see some changes to how it will all play out. But with the majority of them to take place behind the scenes. Namely in the ranking of players, with Blizzard admitting that far too many people were lumped into the Gold and Platinum tiers for Season 2.
And with a title like "Screw It, Let's Go To Space" you should probably know what side you'll fall on. For me it's the former, and even a few cameos which the goofy description spoils can't save this. The description? Well, here goes. "World gone mad? Screw it, let's go to space! Directed by Peter Berg, follow a crew of gamers – including Michael Phelps and Danny McBride – as they escape the frustrations of Earth and launch into intense dogfights, zero-G combat and classic boots-on-the-ground action across the solar system." Actually, that does sound like fun.
With further expansions for Ubisoft's The Division being held off until the base game could be fixed or improved, the fruits of that labour can now be felt with the substantial new 1.4 Patch. And with the introduction of a new World Tier system, UI and gameplay improvements including enemies no longer being extra-absorbent bullet sponges, an overhauled loot and gear system, plus many more tweaks and additions, you'll be left wondering if the patch notes were written by a late 19th century Russian writer.
In a new post that begins with "At Bethesda, we value media reviews" the publisher goes on to announce that it will no longer send out review copies of games prior to release. Instead, like with the recent release of DOOM, both press and consumers will get to play the games at the same time. Equality! So if you value media reviews like Bethesda, you'll just have to wait until after they extract value from your wallet before you can gauge any sort of critical response.
