EA announces Unravel, an intriguing physics-based puzzle game

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 15, 2015 9:35 pm

E3 2015 - Electronic Arts and Coldwood announced the development of Unravel, a puzzle game that takes place in Northern Scandinavia. Yarny, a new character that is just a single thread of yarn, must complete physics-based puzzles - and it's not just about the puzzles, but trying to work through the environment should prove to be a rather unique and enjoyable experience.



"The tale of Unravel is about love, and the bonds between people," said Martin Sahlin, creative director at Coldwood. "And the yarn is a representation of that. Yarny's red thread is the tie that connects everything in the game, from the gameplay mechanics to the story, and the people in it."


Unravel will be available for the PC, Sony PlayStation 4 and Microsoft Xbox One.

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 15, 2015 8:58 pm

E3 2015 - During its press conference at E3, Microsoft announced that a new version of Minecraft, designed for the HoloLens wearable holographic platform, will be available to gamers. The launch date and price of HoloLens remains unknown, but it looks like Microsoft is doing a great job building hype for the upcoming headset.



Gamers will be able to interact in the Minecraft world with a new glimpse of the environment as they build, detonate TNT, and play with other gamers. As an added bonus, those of you wearing HoloLens will still be able to communicate and interact with gamers using a standard controller.


As with any virtual reality or augmented reality platform, the need for killer apps and software could help make or break the platform - and it looks like Microsoft wants gaming to be a major part of HoloLens.

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming | Posted: Jun 15, 2015 7:58 pm

E3 2015 - Microsoft is "working closely with Valve" to make sure the Valve Vive virtual reality headset is optimized with Windows 10, according to Xbox development head Kudo Tsunoda.




Running a PC with support for a VR headset demands powerful PC hardware, but Microsoft wants anyone with a capable PC to have an enjoyable experience while exploring VR.


Microsoft has greatly stepped up its interest in virtual reality, after previously announcing the Oculus Rift consumer version will include an Xbox One controller. Furthermore, connecting the Rift into a PC and getting it up and running should be an easy experience, Microsoft said.

Microsoft: Play your Xbox 360 game title on the Xbox One

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Gaming Consoles | Posted: Jun 15, 2015 7:25 pm

E3 2015 - In a rather unexpected move, Microsoft has decided to make it possible to play Xbox 360 games on the Xbox One. The company will include the backward compatibility for at least 100 titles starting this Christmas, with additional support branching to other games later down the road.




Those of you with digital Xbox 360 titles will simply find the game in your Xbox One library once Microsoft rolls out support. It's a clever move by Microsoft to try to woo gamers, many with large collections of Xbox 360 titles, to hopefully purchase an Xbox One sooner rather than later.


"If you've been waiting to move from your Xbox 360, now's the time," said Phil Spencer, head of the Xbox division.

E3 2015 - With the sea of announcements from Bethesda this morning, including Doom 4, Dishonored 2, and Fallout 4, the news of the Fallout 4 Special Edition including a real-life Pip-Boy got fans of Fallout salivating.
