Gaming studios are such teases. They tell us about a game but we can't play it. Maybe they show us a screenshot, then a teaser trailer, and eventually a full length trailer. It's all just a bid to get us excited, I know, but when it's for a game like The Witcher 3, our excitement levels are already too high. And now they do this...
Silencer attachments in both games and movies give the impression that weapon noise can be reduced to nothing more than a whisper. How true is this though? A gunshot creates one heck of a noise. Is it really possible to snuff it out to near inaudible levels? Apparently not.
Guys, I promise that this is our last bit of Sunset Overdrive coverage. For today at least. Alessandro and I have been playing the game. We’ve been talking. We’ve been recording that talk, editing and uploading it with footage that won’t result in an NDA death squad being sent for us. Enjoy!
Sunset Overdrive is the biggest title coming to Xbox One this year, and it’s out next week! If you haven't been keeping up with Insomniac’s latest crazy creation, then you need to watch this TNTeddy explosion filled launch trailer right now. Especially if you’re looking for something to pop into your new console.
So it’s an open secret that a few of the team are currently jamming Sunset Overdrive to ensure we give you lovely girls and boys a full review in time for release. It is also no surprise that we are totally locked under embargo and can‘t really say anything yet.
Every Bioware companion has a unique personality, but I found the Dragon Age ones to be a bit two dimensional at times. It seems that Dragon Age: Inquisition is making each one much more interesting, and after watching this trailer I might be developing a bit of a crush on Iron Bull.
rAge was awesome this year. It felt like there was a ton of extra room for navigating the venue, which suited me just fine. There was also lots of playable code for games that haven’t been launched yet, something I felt many previous years lacked. Feel like reliving the event in 4 minutes? I’ve put together some footage I snapped while running around The Dome like a madman.
I won’t lie to you: This job isn’t exactly easy. But it does have perks, such as your hair going grey early and playing the latest games a little bit earlier than everyone elseso that you can get a review out in time for launch day. We’re busy with one such game right now, Sunset Overdrive. And we need your help on this one.
Halo, in my humble opinion, is the one game that brought consoles into the mainstream adult population with the incredibly well-written and orchestrated, Halo. In the end Halo became most famous for its online multiplayer but the story side has always been my favourite part of the entire series.
Sunset Overdrive is extremely self-aware. This is a game that knows it is a game, and it continuously reminds you that nothing is being taken seriously. So it's really no surprise then that in the week leading up to release, Sunset Overdrive features a little message those those who have their hands on it early. People like us.
I never really understood the need for skins in Borderlands 2. Sure they're fun to show off to friends when you're rolling around Pandora in co-op, but it's pretty said that you're stuck in first-person and can never see your kicks attire for yourself. That's why the third-person mod was so popular back then, and now it's back.
This video is two weeks old, which in internet time is forever – but I only saw it today, so I’m sharing it with you lot. It’s an incredible animation by James Farr, giving us a brief look at a world that’s populated by a very Nintendo-themed bunch of Avengers. It’s amazing. Seriously. Watch it.
Evolve was a definite stand-out at this year’s rAge Expo. There wasn’t once where I walked past the stand and didn’t see a massive line around it, even before the doors had opened to the public. People love hunting down a group of hunters as the monster, and adding to this beastly roster is exactly how Turtle Rock is going to keep the game alive.
Somehow, when I think of voice actors, I imagine that they'll be similar to hand models - that the part in use is the only really beautiful part of them. However, the voice actors behind Assassin's Creed Unity are also incredibly good looking, and offer some unique insights into the story of the game. We're able to add to those hints from a chat with Leslie Phord-Toy at rAge.
Lately the PC peripheral market has been dominated by Razer and SteelSeries - at least locally. Logitech has receded in the background over the years, especially when it comes to specialized PC gaming hardware. That's slowly changing, and at rAge this year they had two fairly great products to show off.
