CAN YOU DIG IT, SUCKA? Another year, another annual release of specific games. As usual, you can expect Assassin’s Creed, Call of Duty and FIFA to trot out new versions of a familiar game, ready to sell to fans who never seem to tire of a specific formula. But there’s one other game that’s also getting the annual treatment. A game that smells of sweat, spandex and a ring announcer constantly hyping the WWE Universe. WWE 2K16 is the name of the game, and it wants to play. Insert Motorhead guitar solo here.
Jurassic Park. It’s a magnificent movie, even if it over twenty years old now. I’ve got fond memories of the flick, as I remember going to go see it, and getting the day of my life in the process. My cinema had pulled out all the stops, back in the day when they still gave a crap about putting on a good show. They’d set up an actual T-Rex mouth to walk through, the cups were branded with Jurassic Park insignia and my straw was essentially a decapitated Brachiosaurus. Good times man, good times. Can Jurassic World recapture that magic? Can Lego Jurassic World reignite my nostalgia? The answer to that, is a very definite…maybe.
There’s a brand spanking new Rainbow Six Siege trailer that has just hit the Internet and in it we finally get to know when this game is going to be hitting our consoles and PCs.
Deep breath. Get ready, and shout it out loud with me: I NEED MORE POWER! POOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWER!
I have been defending Hatred. It looked like a dark, adult take on the classic twin stick shooter and I really liked the new approach. It made sense when the developers explained it, and it seemed like the guys behind the game were really intelligent and funny when they answered our questions. Now they've released a new trailer and it's all about becoming a cop killer - it doesn't quite sit right with me.
To steal a phrase from RyanZA, don’t trust DRM because The Witcher 3 is a’comin. A big game necessitates an international release, which is exactly what you’re getting. But when? When can you access your pre-loaded files and get your Wild Hunt on? Well to make up for the clickbaity headline, I’m putting it right here: 1:00AM CET on May 19 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So let’s get that timing down right after the jump.
Star Wars Battlefront is getting people mighty excited. I mean, of course it is - it's a Star Wars game that looks absolutely epic. What more do you want? Oh, you want to know when it's coming? Apparently in November if data miners are to be believed.
Project CARS has faced a couple of upsetting delays. Well, I suppose any delay is upsetting, but with a community this amped for release, they are particularly frustrating. At last the publishers have locked down a date, and it's sooner than expected.
What that headline above me said!
HEARTHSTONE! Blizzard’s hit card game just keeps on trucking, having earned plenty of converts and fans since it went public. A free to play model that actually works and a meta-game that is open to newcomers and experts has resulted in Hearthstone being one of Blizzard’s big hits of 2014. Still, the game is going to need to keep that momentum going through 2015. And it’ll look to do just that with some new cards in the upcoming Blackrock Mountain expansion. IT’S TIME TO D-D-D-D-D-D-D-D-DUEL!
Are your Dark Knight undies filled with as much anticipation for Batman: Arkham Knight as mine are? If you said yes, then you’re my kind of messed up individual. Bad news however: You’re going to have to wait a few weeks longer for the game to release, as June 2 is no longer B-day for the B-man.
Devil May Cry 4. The best Devil May Cry. In the world, of all time and undisputed heavyweight champion of the franchise. It’s the Starship Troopers of Devil May Cry games and yes I am unbelievably biased when it comes to the game as I give objective reporting a Stone Cold Stunner and then defenestrate that neutral position. With DmC: Devil May Cry out in the world, it’s time for the fourth core game to get a chance in the spotlight. And that remaster will arrive June 18.
To be fair, we weren’t really going to have to wait much longer for it anyway. In an unsurprising twist of fate (and hopefully not at the expense of anyone’s job at IGN) the release date for Metal Gear Solid V has been revealed via a leaked video that was scheduled to go live sometime tomorrow afternoon. And quite surprisingly, it’s later than expected.
Mad Max is coming back! That hold a lot of weight for some people, but I’m one of the few that is yet to indulge in the Mel Gibson classics of old. The new film, starring tough guy Tom Hardy, looks better and better with each trailer. The same can’t be said for the game however, and we’ve hardly seen a thing yet, Regardless, its coming this year.
We are VR, baby. Love it or hate it, but virtually real hardware and software is here to stay as the field has opened up with various companies throwing their goggles into the ring. While the Oculus Rift may dominate headlines, Sony might have something up their sleeve that could prove an equal match for that VR trendsetter. It’s called Project Morpheus, and thanks to some beefy new hardware that has been added to it, it looks like Morpheus is finally ready to hit the shelves next year.
