At the recent red carpet for HBO's upcoming Westworld series, IGN asked JJ Abrams about the latest on the whole Portal and Half Life movie stuff that's happening. As reported a while back, you might recall that the acclaimed director's production company Bad Robot is currently working with Valve on a number of ideas. One of those being a movie, to which JJ Abrams says "I’m hoping that there will be a Portal announcement fairly soon."
Offering up Windows 7, DirectX 11 support for the previously Windows 10 exclusive. For those that need a refresher Quantum Break is the latest game from the house of Max Payne, an ambitious sprawling action sci-fi that blends live-action footage with in-game choices. And it all plays out in an episodic structure similar to what you'd find in a TV series.
2008's Lost Odyssey from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is one of those epic multi-disc RPGs with stacks of story content, great characters, and a very old-school turn based battle system. And since its release all those years ago, its reputation has only strengthened as the traditional Japanese RPG has, well, fallen off the radar in recent times. Lost Odyssey's addition to the Xbox One backwards compatibility line-up is more than a welcome one.
Or, at the very least 2K and Gearbox will make the formal announcement soon. Chalk this one up to, "Well, what choice to they have". With Battleborn's sales and player numbers pretty much teetering on the brink on non-existence, especially when you compare them to Blizzard's Overwatch, this makes a lot of sense. The news, which has appeared over at Kotaku, comes from an anonymous source that pointed to the recent F2P model seen in Evolve as the catalyst for the change.
After a couple of months where Microsoft's Games with Gold line-up looked to be the more impressive of the two free subscription offerings, next month's free PlayStation Plus titles from Sony aims to reclaim the crown. With free copies of the recent Resident Evil HD remake plus Transformers Devastation from Platinum Games coming to the PlayStation 4. Compared to Microsoft's free baseball offering, we know what we'll be playing.
After 'much hype' for No Man's Sky before its release it wasn't long before that turned into 'much disappoint'. Thanks mainly to stuff that wasn't in the game, but was teased prior to release. And so the backlash began, refunds were requested, and lists of what was and wasn't included in the game but maybe should have been began popping up everywhere.
Opening moments, or thereabouts, of games are usually the ones shown off prior to release. But even so, showing the entire Gears of War 4 prologue mission in its entirety definitely enters spoiler territory. Which is why we kind of skimmed through it, taking in random moments of gun fire, explosions, and chainsaw guns.
After yesterday's explosive trailer, learning that Battlefield 1's campaign goes the full anthology route is a good thing indeed. With each campaign mission featuring its own self-contained story and set of characters. A first for the series, and one that feels perfectly suited to the branching nature of World War I and the style of game Battlefield has always presented. And in confirming this setup, DICE has given us details on the story behind five of the game's campaign missions.
Wasteland 2 is one of the great crowdfunding success stories, it raised more money than it asked for, and in the process delivered a brilliant game that went far and above player expectation. Not only that but it also found success outside of its devoted fan-base as the old-school RPG even made its way to consoles. And now we have Wasteland 3 to look forward to! A sequel set in the icy Colorado wastes.
