What the hell is an Ether chest? It’s a gateway to all your hopes, dreams and goals in life. Provided said ambitions revolve around obtaining fantastic loot in Destiny. The latest Destiny patch has thrown these sought-after chests into the game, provided that you were able to vanquish several of the wanted Fallen in the Queen’s Wrath bounties. They’re still hard as nails to find however, but we’ve got your back.
Even though the biggest discussion factor behind Star Wars Battlefront has been how the game will probably have nowhere near as much content available at launch as the original games did in earlier generation, I’m still kind of cautiously optimistic for the upcoming reboot. As far as Star Wars games go, I’ve got massive confidence in DICE creating the prettiest game in the franchise thus far, and then fixing it up with monthly updates down the line to look even purdier. And while discussing the upcoming game, DICE may have just leaked that there’ll be 12 multiplayer maps within which to support the sister-kissing resistance known as the Rebel Alliance.
Bloodborne's level design is a strange mix of hub world with interlinked areas. Like Demon's Souls, most of it is built around unlocking short cuts, something that made making a complete map a bit tricky. But a Reddit user has done it and it's rather impressive.
We have sent Sandy on a not-so-secret mission to Poland. It makes me happy that merely by stating that he's gone to Poland, you can infer the rest of what he's probably up to. While we wait for his cool, breaking news coverage, world maps for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt have appeared.
I still refuse to believe that Xenoblade Chronicles X is a Wii U game, because it just looks too damn gorgeous. That’s not to say that the Wii U doesn’t have some great-looking games, but we’ve rarely seen anything of that particular calibre on their hardware. Not only is Xenoblade Chronicles X going to be a page 3 stunner, it’s also going to be bigger than your parents expectations for you when you leave high school and need to decide what course to study but you’d rather spend a year surfing and travelling the coast, living free and I’m drifting again dammit. Anyway: Xenoblade Chronicles X is going to be massive.
When it comes to sandbox games, size counts. Much like the defining talent of a male porn star, a map with sizeable girth is what folks are after these days. And Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain aims to please with a world that is plenty big. So just how big is Hideo Kojima’s version of Afghanistan? About this big. You can’t see it, but I’m stretching my arms right now.
Every time I hear something new about Assassin’s Creed Unity, I become just that little bit more excited. Odd, because when it was first announced I was filled with little more than apathy. We’ve known for a while that the playable map for the next game would be huge, but we had no idea just how huge it would be. According to a purportedly leaked image, Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Paris is nearly as big as the real thing.
Size doesn’t matter? Well then you obviously don’t work in gaming where size most certainly does matter, much like an audition on the set of a porn film. The Witcher 3 is one such game which is rather well hung in the environment department, with a map that will put the previous games to shame. It’s so big, that the map comes pre-loaded with “That’s what she said” jokes already.
So I’ve finished GTA V and still think Darryn’s 9/10 for the single player side is low. The game is epic and in depth and I’m a total fanboy about it but even though I’ve finished the game I still only have 2 pieces of the spaceship and 1 of the note.
I loved Arkham City, the last Batman game, which should be no surprise when you realise that I’m wearing a Batman thong right now that promotes comfort and manoeuvrability. Arkham Origins however, is going to have a wider playground with which to work out your parenting issues. A much, much wider arena filled with superstitious criminals and bounty hunters that after your cowl.
According to a report on stickskills Rockstar Games have slowly been revealing pieces of the GTA V map of Los Santos over the past while. And an anonymous internet citizen has pieced them all together to bring us the first full map for Grand Theft Auto V.
Much like the movie Highlander, Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is the best thing ever, when it comes to video games. Naysayers be damned, as Treyarch managed to knock out a damn fine game in the annual franchise that was fun, exciting and slick in the presentation department. As usual, the COD experience is one that has a leaning towards multiplayer and zombies once the end credits roll. And much like with previous games, there’s extra content on the way to keep players satisfied until the next game in the series arrives. Revolution, is the first of four such packs.
So how many hours of your precious life have you poured into Skyrim? Ten? Twenty? Fifty? The game is just so addictive, that it even scored a 10/10 in the review. And no matter how many hours you’ve put in, chances are good that you’ve barely even touched the main quest.
There’s just too much to do, and top of the list has to be all those books laying around bandit fortresses and nestled in the arms of a Draugar warrior. But for those of you who want to take your Skyrim experience that little bit further, here’s a few treats for you.
With 2011 almost as finished as my emergency bottle of Jack Daniels journalistic inspiration, its time to look towards 2012, and the horizon seems bright indeed. We’ve got trilogy-enders, new trilogy-starters and some interesting new reboots and new ideas on the way, but one game that has everyone excited, has to be GTA V.
Details surrounding the upcoming return to the roots of San Andreas are spotty at best, but now it seems that we might just have an idea of when it will release, as well as a map showing off the future sandbox.
