Right, so you might recall that Bethesda kind of gave up on bringing mods to the PlayStation 4 version of Fallout 4. And in a statement, hinted that the problem was on Sony's end. To many fans this left a bad taste in their mouth. Had Sony forgot about gamers? The answer is, of course not. And today Bethesda has announced that Skyrim Special Edition will launch on PlayStation 4 with mod support*. But, with the added bonus of an asterisk. Did you see it there?
At one stage, much like with many high profile game releases, there were whispers that a potential Gears of War movie was in the works. During a livestream event ahead of next week's Gears of War 4 launch, Microsoft dropped word that they were partnering with Universal Studios to bring Gears of War to the big screen. Assuming of course that the big screen can handle that much bicep.
Every day the eSports scene is growing in Australia, and helping lead that charge is the OPL and Riot's League of Legends. Today it was announced that pro LoL team Dire Wolves had received a significant investment from sports business group, Guinevere Capital. The investment is part an ongoing trend of traditional sports businesses or individuals buying into the fast-growing eSports space, but more significantly, it's the first major move of its kind to take place locally in Australia.
Sometimes a fancy apartment, a yacht, a fleet of supercars, a crew of thugs in suits, and more cash than you know what to do with just won't cut it. Sometimes all you want to do is don a leather jacket, get a neck tattoo, open up a motorcycle club, cook some meth, and just hang out. Play darts, arm-wrestle. And now thanks to the new Bikers DLC for GTA Online, you can do all of that. And more.
So apparently Company of Heroes is ten years old, a surprising stat because the original game still looks great today and features both timeless and rock solid strategy mechanics. And to celebrate the franchise's 10th anniversary the latest Humble Bundle is basically a compendium of everything Company of Heroes. And for $10 USD you can basically snag every release for the brilliant WWII strategy series.
Not due for release until next year, Red Barrels' sequel to the survival horror hit Outlast now has a demo available on PC and console until November 1. Described as a "a twisted new journey into the depths of the human mind and its dark secrets" you can be sure that it's chock full of moody lighting, creepy atmosphere, and scares aplenty. Which means playing this at night with the lights off, is the way to do it. And a way to soil your underpants.
To those that know me, it won't come as a surprise that I totally dug Fallout 4. Even with its faults, the sense of exploration and discovery coupled with one of the best designed open worlds ever created make it the sort of game you can lose yourself in. Perhaps what came as a surprise even to me was how invested I would become in the settlement building side of things. So much so that one of the last things I did in the game was build a museum.
With Resident Evil 7 being exclusive for a year and Batman: Arkham VR being exclusive to the platform until March 31, 2017. Both titles represent a couple of the first must-have big-deal VR releases, the sort of stuff that's big enough to convince someone to shell out the money for VR-kit. And with both appearing on PlayStation VR, owners of HTC Vive and Oculus Rift will have to wait before they get the chance to play either game.
With the recent-ish launch of YouTube Gaming, which to many felt like the video giant trying to encroach a little into Twitch territory, we know have a similar situation. But in reverse. Twitch Upload, a new feature that's currently in beta allows users and streamers to edit and upload any clip or video they want and post it to their channel. So yeah, basically YouTube functionality.
