Welcome to our weekly post of featured downloadable content available for different gaming platforms sponsored by www.evopoints.co.za. Hit the jump for this week’s list of fresh downloadable games and content.
I enjoyed Dragon Age II in spite of itself. Yes, I found it disappointing after the exceptional Origins, and the re-used assets made everything seem a tad homogenous. Enemies respawning from the sky made the whole thing feel a but unpolished. It was the overall lack of scope that let it down most. Yet, once you waded through those issues it remained a pretty good RPG. EA and Bioware’s insistence that the next Dragon age will be better is assuring enough – but this location trailer’s what’s got me really excited.
So yesterday we were finally given a release date for Watchdogs along with a brand new trailer First let’s get the great news out the way with Ubisoft revealing that the game will be launching worldwide on the 27th of May 2014.
No, we’re not discussing Titanfall. For a while now, I think console games, or more specifically, the last generation of consoles, have been holding videogames (yes, even PC ones!) back. It’s one reason why the uptake of this newest generation of machines has been unprecedented, with a combined total of nearly 10 million PlayStation 4’s and Xbox Ones in homes already.
Dark Souls II is almost upon us. Are you ready to lose all hope, to descend into the depths of despair and maybe even throw your toys and rage quit on a daily basis? I'm not quite sure why we do this to ourselves, but we can't wait to do it again. Now, we have a date for when the PC master race can join in the fun.
Here’s some worrying news for those excited for EA’s biggest game this year. Apparently, Titanfall has been cancelled in South Africa. That, according to Mweb Gamezone, seems to be the case for digital copies of the game purchased via EA’s Origin digital distributions service.
Watch Dogs was meant to be one of the games to launch with the new generation of consoles, but it was delayed at the 11th hour. The delay’s caused some to lose interest, but we’re still pretty keen for Ubisoft’s open-world hacktastic adventure. To date, we’ve had no idea when the game would actually be released – but now we do. And we’ve got the trailer to prove it.
I don’t handle horror games well. The reason for that might be because of some solid scare design, some well managed use of knowing when to to do a jump-scare or the fact that I’m an absolute coward. So you can bet your clean pants that a game such as SOMA is going to have me assuming the foetal position when it arrives.
One genre that has seen a dip over the last decade, has to be the strategy game. Sure, there’s a few great examples out on shelves now, but they certainly don’t dominate sales like they used to. One of the best such games back then was Homeworld, a cosmic real-time battle amongst the stars. Gearbox has been hard at work remastering the two games. And they sound like old-school ideas with new school visuals.
You know how I confirmed for you yesterday that we will be seeing DLCs and a Season Pass for Titanfall? Well, now we know how much it will cost and how much of a savings the Season Pass will give you compared to buying each DLC as it comes. There's even a way to save more money.
When OnLive first launched I scoffed and stated that it will never work. Through the numerous trade shows and press releases that followed I never once thought they had a chance and it was absolutely no surprise that they virtually collapsed in late 2012.
Love it or hate it, but Microsoft’s DirectX API is what makes most of your PC games run. It’s also the reason most PC gamers are still sticking with windows, despite pushes from companies like Valve to get them to embrace the penguin. that battle rages on, as Microsoft plans to unveil its latest iteration of DirectX at this year’s GDC.
Next week Friday, those of you who aren’t preparing to die will be getting ready for Titanfall. The mech-battling, wall-running, jet-packing shooter from Respawn is out on Friday for those of who don’t live in North America, promising to not just be Call of Duty with mechs. Which is what it looks a heck of a lot like.
I told you yesterday that 4 months on and Battlefield 4 was still – for many – quite a buggy experience. DICE said that fixing it all was a top priority The game’s getting some decent patching today – though none of it really affects any of the problems outlined there. Here’s a list of what’s being fixed on PS3, PS4 and Xbox 360 today.
