JUMP FORCE leaks images of Dragon Quest and JoJo Characters

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 44 mins ago

It seems that Bandai Namco has made an oppsie, as fans of the developer have captured many screenshots of two new JUMP FORCE characters. Dragon Quest and JoJo characters have been leaked via Instagram advertising.

 

 

It seems the PR department of Bandai Namco isn't paying attention to where the game is at announcement wise, as fans that follow the gaming corporation on Instagram have spotted a mistake in the new JUMP FORCE advertising. Instagram users from all around the globe captured separate screenshots of Dai from Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai and Jotaro Kujo from the Jojo's Bizarre Adventure series.

 

To the fans advantage we now know that these characters will be included in the games final roster, so I'd expect some form of official announcement from Bandai soon. The announcement will most likely come in two seperate characters trailers showcasing each of the fighters in-game, I will be sure to follow up this post when an official announcement is made. JUMP FORCE will officially be launched on the 15th of February for the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. If you want to pre-order JUMP FORCE, you might want to check out the collectors edition, more on that here.

Anthem head compares finished game details to upcoming demo

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 2 hours, 44 mins ago

As we move closer to the release date of BioWare's Anthem we have gathered some details about the games upcoming demo and how it will differ from the final version of the game.

 

 

The news comes from BioWare's Executive Producer of Anthem, Mark Darrah. Darrah has taken to his personal Twitter account to reveal in dot point form the differences players should expect when playing the demo. According to Darrah, the demo will place gamers in in the middle and will not give any tutorials. The balancing for what can be expected of weapons and enemies is "super different" which also coincides with the fact that the demo has 6 weeks of less bug fixes.

 

Darrah doesn't stop there either, he continues and says that there will only be 1 story arc included within the demo and the "mission/stronghold/freeplay balance will be off a bit". Players should also expect a bit more refined PC controls. Darrah also says that some things within the demo are named differently to the final game. For players that have pre-ordered Anthem the demo will be available on January 25th, the general public will be able to play the demo on February 1st. The final release for Anthem will be on February 22nd and will be coming to the Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

Resident Evil 2 Remake 'one-shot demo' hits 2m players

By: Jak Connor | More News: Gaming | Posted: 3 hours, 44 mins ago

Capcom should be quite happy with the progress they have made with Resident Evil 2 Remake, as it seems the classic game being remade from the ground up has provided to be quite popular. The 'one-shot' demo has reached a new player milestone.

 

resident-evil-2-remake-one-shot-demo-hits-2m-players_01

 

The statistics come from the official Resident Evil website global player tracker, at the time of writing this there is 2,328,797 players that have downloaded and the 'one-shot' demo. Interestingly enough, out of those 2 million players only 26% of them managed to complete the demo before the timer kicked them off.

 

This means that out of the 2,328,797 players only 605,487 players managed to complete the demo. Perhaps this is an indicator to the level of difficulty that the full game will have, maybe players should listen to Capcom's recommendations for conserving ammo and being much more strategic and not so trigger happy. Just a week a go the demo had already been played by 1.3 million people, check that story out here. Resident Evil 2 Remake will launch on January 25th on the PlayStation 4, PC and Xbox One.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate goes Hunger Games on Adult Swim

By: Jak Connor | More News: HT & Movies | Posted: 9 hours, 51 mins ago

Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is not only making waves in the gaming market right now for sales, but it also is granting some amazing content idea's from content creators. Adults Swim's latest Robot Chicken episode pits the Super Smash Bros. fighters against each other in an epic Hunger Games match.

 

 

The above stop-motion video which has been released onto the Adult Swim YouTube Channel begins with Tortimer selecting names from a bowl in an Animal Crossing village for the "74th annual Smash Brothers games". Clearly this is direct reference to the Hunger Games movies/book, and just like the movie a female villager offers herself as tribute to save the life of another, in this case a terrified Puddles.

 

We then see the female villager speaking to Tom Nook about the Smashing Games, saying that all the participants care about is "competent edge guarding and L-cancelling", quite an accurate and clever joke if you ask me. Villager is then teleported to Hyrule Castle and begins her match. Each of the fighters that are seen throughout the battle use their respective abilities from Smash Ultimate, and as a Smash player it is quite awesome to see a very accurate and comical representation of each of the characters.

Metro Exodus' story reacts to your decisions

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 day, 8 hours ago

Like previous Metro games, the new open-ended sequel Metro Exodus will have reactive storytelling that changes based on the decisions you make.

 

metro-exodus-story-reacts-decisions_13145

 

At it's core Metro Exodus is a game built around hope--hope for a better life on the surface, hope for a future that isn't cowering in the metro shadows. But as players make choices the story will unfold in different ways based on their decisions, bringing to mind some slightly RPG-y elements that are found in previous Metro games. This system will be nuanced and not obvious, and players won't always know how and why their actions are shaping the story's progression and ultimately its ending.

 

In a recent interview with PlayStation Universe, Deep Silver exec Huw Beynon discussed dynamic storytelling and confirmed multiple endings for Metro Exodus.

 

"It is no secret that both games have different endings and it is based on the choices you make as a player. It is really important that the way that system works is that those choices aren't telegraphed up front. There is no prompt that says press this button to do the good thing, press this button to do the bad thing," he said.

Visceral's Star Wars game was basically Star Wars Uncharted

By: Derek Strickland | More News: Gaming | Posted: 1 day, 11 hours ago

Visceral's cancelled Star Wars game, codenamed Project Ragtag, would've been the franchise's own intergalactic version of Uncharted infused with action elements.

I was looking forward to Project Ragtag ever since I reported about the Star Wars games timeline in 2016. The game, which was being directed by Uncharted dev Amy Hennig and was cancelled in 2017 along with Visceral's closure, would've had an original storyline with one singular aim: to make gamers feel like they've played a Star Wars movie. Not a whole lot is known about Ragtag, but Rogue One writer Gary Whitta says it would've been like Star Wars Uncharted.

 

"I saw a bunch of that game and it looked terrific," Whitta said in a recent episode of Kinda Funny Games Daily.
