Xbox One: Changing their ways?

In the war between next gen consoles, the public has chosen the PS4 as their winner, leaving the Xbox One behind. This is mostly due to the Xbox One’s requirement of an internet connection every 24 hours in order to use the device and the PS4’s lack thereof. However, Microsoft announced that they have changed the properties of the Xbox One

So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360.

What does this mean for the Next Gen War? The PS4 still has a price edge but will that be enough? Microsoft’s desperate attempt (let’s face it, that’s what it is…) to reclaim it’s fans may prove to be a turning point in the war.

I, personally am still siding with Sony because of my great experiences with the PS2 and PS3, but others may not feel the same. I would be shocked to see if Microsoft lowered the Xbox One’s price by $100 to compete with the PS4 but i wouldn’t put it past them.

Star Wars Battlefront 3 leaked gameplay

I’ve been searching the web for information about the previewed Star Wars Battlefront 3 and I stumbled across this YouTube video with leaked footage of Battlefront 3 gameplay:

“This video shows leaked alpha footage of Star Wars: Battlefront III, which was to have been the third video game in the Star Wars: Battlefront series. Although LucasArts never announced the game, Free Radical Design developed the game from 2006 until 2008. The video gives you an example of how vast the battles would have been: all the Republic’s Cruisers you see on the video are piloted by full crews of real players.”

The game seems pretty cool although it is development from nearly half a decade ago! The trailer I showed a few days ago was most likely new CG for E3. It reminds me of the Battlefront Elite Squadron game released on PSP a few years back what with the characters X1 and X2 fighting and all but it did have some more twists in it.  The game has probably been heavily modified to be up to next gen standards. Though there is virtually no information regarding this game, I will be watching for more news on it!

E3 Update: Sony PS4 Reveal (#Winning)

The long-awaited PS4 is here with the news on the hardware and design. Many people on the comment feed on Gametrailers.com are going back and forth trying to decide which system is going to be better than the other, and the general consensus is the lower priced console wins the war for this generation.

After discussing the PS3 and PSVita, the PS4 was introduced. Bypassing the chit-chat with the arcade games and all (don’t get me wrong, they were pretty alright), the action started out with Assassins Creed IV: Black Flags… Though this was the first actual gameplay demo the PS4 actually froze on multiple occasions: Not a good marketing plan. Despite that, Assassin’s Creed remains

on my list with the awesome gameplay and everything. Next was the Watchdogs gameplay debut which only increased my love for the game, this time with no glitches in the system. beautiful and unlimited possibilities. They even had LeBron James himself for the release of  the new 2k.Embedded image permalink

What the users really had a ball with was the fact that there were no restrictions on used games!!!! No need to connect online either! This is what shot the Xbox down from first place at E3. In addition, the playstation is a hundred dollars cheaper than the Xbox One! The feed has shifted massively to PS4 and unless Microsoft does something, they are in for a loss…

Star Wars Battlefront Returns!

This is teaser from E3 is a taste of the return of Star Wars Battlefront, one of my favorites as a kid. The game is complete with next gen graphics. Though it was vague, everyone has high hopes for the game.

Red vs. Blue Season 11

RTYou all know I’m not a Halo guy, shoot I don’t even have an Xbox. But I cannot deny the hilariousness of the Halo based show called Red vs. Blue. This internet show has been in existence for over a decade, courtesy of Rooster Teeth. This company is one of immense influence in the gaming world and has captured my attention as well as millions of others. A few weeks ago, they released the trailer for Red vs. Blue 2013, and I just thought that I would share it. I recommend this show for anyone who enjoys to laugh and cry from doing so.

Xbox One and Call of Duty: Ghosts

Last night marked the introduction to Microsoft’s next generation console and what an intro! Though I’m not an Xbox guy, I will certainly consider it now! The new Xbox is a worthy opponent to Sony’s PS4, with new engines and graphics and all the things that make a console desirable… and then some. The new Xbox comes fully integrated with Kinect which allows for motion and voice commands! Yes you can tell your Xbox to turn on the TV or go to Netflix or something. Microsoft has attempted to fully control your living room with the Xbox One. Unfortunately, this system will most likely be extremely expensive, costing maybe $750 USD (Unconfirmed speculation). The PS4 may also be the same price for competitive reasons. I’m looking forward to seeing some competition!

But for me, the most important thing of the night was the debut of Call of Duty: Ghosts. This game is not at all what anyone expected. The game has little or nothing to do with the previous Modern Warfare series, but creates a new story and cast to captivate gamers. This game takes place in a time where the U.S. military is crippled and the world has gone to the dogs, and only you and your team – the ghosts – stand between saving it and chaos. So far, it looks like it has nothing to do with Ghost from the MW series, but maybe it does. Maybe the group is in honor of the lost hero, I don’t know. All I know is that it’s on my buy list without a doubt.

It’s Here! Uprising for PS3

I’ve been waiting and waiting and it’s finally here! after a month of avoiding news about Uprising, all the waiting has paid off. The new Black Ops 2 Map pack. I’m sure all of you PS3 gamers out there are with me. This weekend, I’ll spend playing Mob of the Dead and the other maps that came out. And I may review it depending on if I have the time.

P.S. Tomorrow is my AP test. Wish me luck!

The Ghosts Are Real

When I got home today, I had in my email a strange message with the subject, “The Ghosts Are Real”. When I looked at the sender I knew what it meant. It was sent by Call of Duty:

It’s about time! The next generation gaming age comes in strong with the most successful gaming franchise releasing their new game. Though this is only the teaser, it left me itching to see the trailer and play the game. This is definitely on my Pre-order list.

To combine this with another leak that I caught wind of earlier this year, I remember seeing somewhere some information about the game. A voice actor for the game leaked that the main character was one who was arrogantly self-confident. This is just something I remember reading and may have absolutely no truth at all.

Anyway, the game is possibly about our old friend, Ghost, from Task force 141 who supposedly was killed along with Roach on Modern Warfare 2 when they were betrayed by General Shepard. Forget about spoilers on a four year old game by the way.  But the game could either take place before his death, or play on the fact that he did not die. I would prefer the latter because of the completely new doors it would unveil.

Did you notice the cut scene though? The mask is one that is far different than the one worn by ghost throughout Modern Warfare 2. See here:Gohsts2                                         Ghost

 

The difference is unmistakable, but what does it mean? is it someone carrying out Ghost’s legacy, or Ghost himself before/after TF141? I don’t know. All I know is; there’s a new Call of Duty game out there, and I cannot wait!

Also there was something else that I didn’t notice around the internet (mostly because I wasn’t looking). There is a next gen Xbox confirmed, and it will be debuted on May 21st. As it happens, check my Twitter feed and this site for the latest info

Black Ops 2: Uprising release

Apparently Chucky was right about Treyarch’s accidental hint to the new DLC. Here it is:

So this looks amazing what with the new Zombies map and the multiplier maps, but oddly, no gun. Unfortunately for me, I won’t get it until a month after Xbox users. Why is that? I remember reading somewhere about an audio glitch, or something. Either way, rumors are true, and the ame will be released for Xbox on  April 16th, and probably a month later on PS3.

The maps are as follows:

Multiplayer:

Magma        Vertigo     Studio    Encore

Zombies:    Mob of the Dead

What’s strange is that there was no release trailer for it. I expect one today or tomorrow. but who knows? What’s important is that there is a new DLC and I think I speak for all gamers when I say this is much welcomed! What are your hopes for the new maps? Zombies or Multiplayer?

I’m anxious for opinions!

Re-Edit: CONFIRMED REAL! added trailer above

New Game: Watch Dogs

So maybe you watched the official announcement of the PlayStation4, or maybe not, but I did. There were a lot of things in those two hours that intrigued me, especially the new Ubisoft game, Watch Dogs – a modern hacker-assassin type game that looks a lot like Assassins creed, but more on that later. The game’s debut gameplay at the event was enough to keep me interested in the game. take a look at what PlayStation’s YouTube channel just released:

 

If you saw the original video this would make more sense, but I digress.

Like I said before, the game reminds me of Assassins Creed, and if you ask me, it looks like it uses an engine similar to that of an Assassin’s Creed game. To me, this looks like a scrapped project for a modern set AC, but what do I know?

All in all, this looks like an exiting leap into the Next Gen console era, which as of now only includes the PlayStation4. Microsoft hasn’t yet confirmed suspicions about the Xbox720, but is rumored to do so this summer. Watch Dogs will most likely be released on all next gen consoles this holiday season, and I plan on pre-ordering it soon!

I’m anxious for opinions!
