Very probably not, if we’re being honest. While reports of a newer, smaller PlayStation 4 are inevitable, I think it’s a little too soon for it to happen. That hasn’t stopped this series of confidential images purporting to be the first pictures of a diminutive PlayStation 4 from flooding the internet.
There’s going to be a new Call of Duty this year because of course there’s going to be one. Activision has been steadily whipping their studios to keep their mega millions franchise alive, so it’s just a matter of time before we hear about the next instalment. That seemingly came from Microsoft yesterday – before they pulled the old one eighty again.
Before Heavy Rain put Quantic Dream on the PS3 map, the studio created a far more mature and disturbing game on the PS2. Anyone who has played Indigo Prophecy will tell you that Quantic's more modern work pales in comparison on various fronts, especially when it comes to violence and sexual content. I have no doubt a sequel would go down extremely well - and that could be what Quantic Dream is teasing.
Normally, Batman: Arkham Knight posts are written by Darryn. However, he is unwilling to expose himself to potential spoilers which is why these words aren't written by him. If you feel the same about possible spoilers for the game, please stop reading now and don't click further. If, however, you're curious about how a Limited Edition statue could spoil the game, follow me.
Anyone remember Shadow Realms? It’s supposed to be the next big from BioWare, which was announced as a PC exclusive at Gamescom last year after some exciting cryptic marketing. The episodic, 4 vs. 1 styled dungeon crawler looked like it was going in the free-to-play direction, but now it could be an all new game entirely.
If I could only play one JRPG franchise for the rest of time, it would probably be Final Fantasy. I've been playing these games since the very first one and I am beyond excited for FF XV. However, Square Enix is looking to hire someone and the position is getting me a bit worried.
Guitar Hero was the biggest thing for a long while. It spawned a whole bunch of rhythm games and was strangely fun and addictive. Personally, I wish Rocksmith were as popular seeing as it teaches you how to really play guitar. However, the plastic guitars might be returning soon, this time for a new generation of consoles.
Just a few short weeks ago Nvidia official released their next-generation graphics cards, the GTX 980 and 970. Powered by their new Maxwell technology, the cards focused more on power efficiency, but still managed to outpace the staggeringly fast 700 series' best. The GTX 980, in particular, is an incredible card, and it could be getting an upgrade already.
Selfies are dangerous business. It’s even worse if you’re a bit trigger happy on sending those pictures out into the world. You never know what could end up in the background. It’s always best to scan each and every pixel before putting something like that, with your face attached, onto the internet. Especially if you can possibly leak something important, like Halo 5’s release date.
What’s your favourite GTA game? I’m not the series’ biggest fan, but if I had to pick one, it’d probably be Vice City. something about the setting, and the cheesy 80’s music just resonates with me. For most though, if it’s not the newest GTA V, it’s likely GTA San Andreas. And it looks like it’s coming back.
The new generation of consoles is supposed to usher in a new dawn of gaming, allowing developers everywhere to capitalize on new hardware to once again push visual and audio boundaries. That hasn't exactly happened yet. Instead we're being treated to slightly prettier versions of games we've already played, and Limbo might join the growing list soon.
Around this time last year nearly everyone everywhere was busy playing Grand Theft Auto V. Since then, Rockstar has been working very hard to get the game looking brand new on current-gen consoles, with the remastered GTA V launching in little over a month. Or, if you're on PS4, even sooner.
Against my better judgement, I bought Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes earlier this year. This was after weeks of me slamming the game for basically being a paid, glorified demo. After playing it for several hours I’ll definitely agree that it’s worth the small price tag, something which hopefully won’t change for the upcoming PC launch. Which could, in fact, be happening soon.
Earlier this week there was a massive performance leak of Nvidia’s new 900-series cards, which are expected to drop later this month. The closer we get, the more details find their way onto the internet. That’s why today there’s a pretty clear idea of what the smaller of the two cards, the GTX 970, might have under the fans.
The rumor mill is grinding again, and this time it's got something quite juicy in its grasp. According to The Wall Street Journal, Microsoft is looking to buy Mojang for quite a sizable chunk of cash, and the deal could be signed this week.
