There’s only one game development team working on two games that I can’t wait to play this fall: Avalanche Studios. You might remember Avalanche Studios from the fantastically chaotic Just Cause 2 way back in 2010, but the developers have been hard at work on both that game’s follow-up and another, even more intriguing project over the last five years.
When I elected to review MLB 14 The Show last year, I thought I might be in over my head. I hadn’t played any of the recent entries in the series and I didn’t think I would fare especially well within the game, regardless of how well put together it was. Thankfully, my worries were misplaced, and I found myself immersed in a sports game for the first time in years.
I was hoping to have a similar experience with MLB 15 The Show, but after spending hours with San Diego Studio’s sequel, I have begun to see through the veneer of the improved visuals and have found a game that feels more like a step backwards than a home run.
Save for Forza Horizon 2, my personal game of the year in 2014, I have been sorely disappointed by the racing game lineup of the new generation. Need for Speed: Rivals felt like a step back after the incredible Most Wanted, Driveclub didn’t live up to the lofty expectations, and The Crew was all but broken at launch.
Maybe the endlessly delayed Project CARS, which has finally gone gold, will put the genre back on track.
Next week, one of the most popular fighting game franchises of all time will make its debut on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. That’s right — we’re just a few days away from the launch of Mortal Kombat X, and to mark the occasion, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the official launch trailer for the game.
Another month, another batch of free games from Sony. Once you finally work your way through Bloodborne (providing you ever actually reach the end), you’re going to want to download some great free games in order to wind down. Just make sure that PS Plus subscription is still active.
After a slow start to the year, there are already enough games out in 2015 to last you for the next six months. Of course, you’ll need the latest and greatest consoles in order to play them, but consoles are expensive. That’s not going to change any time soon, which is why we thought it might be worth pointing you in the direction of a few great deals on Amazon. More →
That’s the question that YouTube user ElAnalistaDeBits is trying to answer after GTA 5 players started noticing that vehicle collisions didn’t look quite right following the latest updates to the game. In order to discover the truth, “the analyst of bits” reinstalled the vanilla version of the game and recorded the differences between it and the newest version. More →
After months of waiting, the most anticipated feature is finally coming to the PS4. On Thursday, system update 2.50 will finally go live, bringing Suspend/Resume functionality to the PS4. This will allow users to put their consoles into Rest Mode without shutting down any active applications. More →
After being announced nearly a decade ago with a different name and under the control of a different director, Final Fantasy XV is finally playable. This week, Square Enix will launch Final Fantasy Type-0 HD in the United States, bringing with it a demo for the next numbered entry in the Final Fantasy series.
This demo is called Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae, and you can watch over an hour of footage from it below.
I’m sick of playing the same first-person shooter campaign year after year. No matter how many explosions go off or which celebrity tries to take over the world, I just don’t think I could handle another world war.
