Based on the setting of some vague sci-fi infused world with military underpinnings Hardcore Henry could be based on just about any FPS released in the last decade. And before you scoff at the idea of a movie made to look like an FPS, this indie production actually looks fairly impressive. There are a number of very gamey touches peppered throughout the trailer that are very cool. In fact, a lot of it is kind of awesome.
Anyone else out there thought that the Survival Mode in Fallout 4 related to having to eat, sleep, and watch out for permanent addiction to chems? Kind of like what was available in Fallout: New Vegas. Well, you're not alone and it looks like Bethesda has taken all that feedback and plans to revamp the Survival Mode (i.e. the hardest difficulty in Fallout 4).
With both versions out on the same day, April 5. The PC release for the previously Xbox One exclusive may come as a surprise to some, but Remedy has always had a long history of PC gaming -- dating all the way back to the original Max Payne. Visually and technically, the developer is known for pushing the envelope, so Quantum Break on Windows 10 should look nothing short of spectacular.
A new walkthrough video for the upcoming Total War: WARHAMMER gives us a closer look at the Empire campaign, and what it means to be a human in a world surrounded by vampires, greenskins, and chaos. Although it's light on action, there aren't any battles to see, we do get a some info about skill trees, tech trees, and how very WARHAMMER this new Total War appears to be. Yeh, it's looking very cool.
After some speculation, rumour, and some good old fashioned gossip, Ubisoft has announced that Assassin's Creed is going on a little bit of a sabbatical. That means no new AAA Assassin's Creed game scheduled for release this year. What does it all mean? Probably nothing more than Ubisoft allowing for more development time for the next Assassin's Creed game. Something that no doubt should help re-instate the franchise as one of premiere open world experiences.
After applying the brakes and being delayed to 2016 the latest Need for Speed from EA is finally getting a PC release, and it'll be racing into stores on March 17. Ahem. In addition to the cars, engines, wheels, and roads to race on (the staple of any car racing game) the visually impressive title will also be getting a nitrous-style boost for PC. We're talking 4K resolution, unlocked frame-rates, and rims so shiny they'd make just about any celestial light source blush.
The latest trailer for the upcoming Far Cry Primal certainly does a lot to sell you the look and feel of a prehistoric Far Cry. From murderous cannibals, animals with giant teeth, and friendly owls that can be used a assassination tools, this five minute look at a number of features in the game gives a good sense of the survival, danger, and fun to be had.
And it comes from a team that includes the Art Director from Bioshock and other Irrational Game alumni, plus people that also worked on Halo and Rock Band. Described as a "rogue-lite river journey" the game was made possible thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, and no doubt its visually arresting look. In the game players must forage, craft, watch our for predators as they make their way down a procedurally generated river.
And it comes from the people that created the whole "six-degrees-of-freedom" shooter-thing that was pioneered by Descent in the mid-'90s. Which led to many a confused gamer trying to work out which way was up. But, Descent was a very cool game. One that is still fun to experience today, but also one that feels nowhere near as revolutionary. Which makes OVERLOAD very much Descent 2016, as it looks remarkably close to the original.
It may not be Season 3 proper, but any new The Walking Dead content from Telltale Games is always good news. Except of course for the characters in the story, as they usually have to deal with some pretty heavy shit. And zombies. The Walking Dead: Michonne is a three episode miniseries focusing on the samurai-sword wielding bad-ass from the comic books and TV series. Episode One, 'In Too Deep' will be out February 23rd.
