Atlas
I started writing articles for the homepage in 2014. My favorite articles to write were articles which collectively are known as my retrospective series, "Let's Go Retro." After roughly 20 articles of mine were promoted in one month, I was given the position of "Writer." I wrote for awhile, eventually became a Diet Moderator, and later became a Super Moderator. I still enjoy to write and will put out an article on occasion when i have time. Nowadays, my time is very limited due to studies.
  1. Batman: Arkham Knight Release Date May Have Been Leaked

    Near the beginning of this month, it was revealed that Batman: Arkham Knight has been delayed until 2015. The reason behind the delay was mainly so that the game could be worked out to reach its full potential. Just recently, however, a release date for the upcoming final chapter to the series may have been inadvertently shown to the public via a Pre-Order Listing on Microsoft’s website. The date in question is this coming February 24th. While the posting seems to be empirical enough,...
  2. Homebrew Server In-Progress for Wii and DS / How To Play Wii and DS Games Online Again

    Since May 20th, 2014, Nintendo has ceased providing Wi-Fi Connection services for the Wii and DS. Because of this plug-pulling, 20 Wii and Wiiware games and 40 DS games no longer feature online gameplay, matchmaking, or leaderboards. While many Wii and DS channels have remained unaffected, it is reasonable to believe that a fair amount of people may wish to play some of the aforementioned 60 games. Luckily, a group of individuals is currently working on establishing a fully-stable...
  3. Review: Murdered: Soul Suspect

    The idea of being a ghost has always interested me. I am not sure on whether or not I really believe in ghosts, but the thought of being able to pass through solid objects and cause unseen disturbances seems potentially entertaining. In Murdered: Soul Suspect, players take control of detective Ronan O’Connor, who has recently been murdered and now walks the Earth as a ghost. Ronan has some unfinished business to attend to, including learning the identity of his murderer, before he can...
  4. E3 2014 Reveal: Rainbow Six Siege

    Although the newest upcoming Rainbow Six installment did not necessarily make the limelight at E3, it certainly deserves some recognition. During Ubisoft’s E3 2014 Press Conference, Rainbow Six Siege gameplay lasting over 6 minutes was first premiered for the world to see. Siege brings back a series of games that has not seen a new release since 2008 with a bang. Currently, the game is scheduled for a tentative 2015 release, but many would not be surprised if that date would be carried...
  5. E3 2014 Reveal: Scalebound

    During Microsoft’s Press Conference at E3, Platinum games announced and revealed a new game called “Scalebound.” The announcement came in the form of a nearly two-minute trailer which features a human who is being pursued by a couple of dragon-like monsters within a vast forest. At first glance, the game gives off the impression of the acclaimed series, Monster Hunter, but with massive advancements. While barely any details have been released about the upcoming game, we do know that...
  6. E3 2014 Reveal: Splatoon

    While there was plenty of interesting topics presented during Nintendo’s E3 Press Conference, one game that particularly stuck out to me was the team-based first-person-shooter, Splatoon. The announcement and reveal of Splatoon for the Wii U was just presented to the world earlier this morning. What nicely sets the game apart from any traditional FPS is its system of ground control, team work, and options for strategy. As opposed to players running around playing as soldiers with...
  7. Grand Theft Auto V Coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC / Pre-Orders Begin Tomorrow, June 10th

    Just earlier today at E3 and nearly an hour or go in an article on Rockstar’s website, the announcement was made that Grand Theft Auto V will be coming to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC sometime this Autumn. The initial reveal manifested into a video (see source) that was shown for the first time during Sony’s E3 press conference earlier today. GTA V was originally released for the Xbox 360 and PS3 last year, and since then, has earned record-breaking sales and plenty of praise....
  8. Former BioShock Developers Working on New Project: The Black Glove

    Roughly four months ago, Irrational Games (creator of BioShock) shut down and closed its doors. With a relatively sudden stop filled with many people being left without work, the gaming community could only wonder where these developers would be heading. Some developers decided to try to get into business with 2K Games or even studios such as Turbine Inc. or Blizzard Entertainment. Other former Irrational Games members, including Joe Fielder (Writer for BioShock Infinite), decided that...
  9. Assassin's Creed Unity: New Leaks and Rumor

    Over the past couple months, Ubisoft’s upcoming game, Assassin’s Creed Unity, has been in discussion amongst the gaming community. After initial leaked screenshots emerged for the public to see, a short trailer was released which confirmed the game’s existence and title. Since then, newly-released information has been somewhat scarce in regards to details of the new installment. However, just recently, possible fresh details have begun to surface in the form of newly leaked images and a...
  10. Mortal Kombat X - Leaked Yesterday, Revealed Today!

    The secret is out! Just yesterday, Mortal Kombat X was accidentally revealed by Amazon UK. Today, after information and rumors were spread around the community, Ed Boon (co-creator of Mortal Kombat) Tweeted the title of the upcoming game. The game itself will be released sometime in 2015 for the PS3, PS4, 360, X1, and PC. Along with the announcement came a visually stunning trailer for the game, which I have included at the bottom of this article. Although not all information about...
  11. PlayStation Plus Update: Will Have 2 Titles Per Month for PS4, PS3, PS Vita (6 Games Total)

    Just yesterday, Sony announced various plans and details for its PlayStation Plus program. The announcement came in the form of a blog post written by John Koller, Sony’s Vice President of Platforms Marketing. Next month, PlayStation Plus will be hitting its 4th-year milestone. With this milestone in mind, many can imagine that Sony would want to make the program better than ever in respect to such an accomplishment. In the past, PlayStation Plus provided free games for limited times...
  12. [Rumor] Leaked Screenshots from Upcoming Super Smash Bros. Game

    Just yesterday, I stumbled upon four supposedly leaked screenshots from the upcoming Super Smash Bros. game for the Nintendo Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS. The screenshots originated from a post on 4chan, which has since been deleted from the site. Currently, the authenticity of these screenshots is still in question. In fact, if you search the internet in regards to these screenshots, you’ll notice that many believe that the images are not genuine, but plenty of others believe otherwise....
  13. Ed Boon Teases Possible New Mortal Kombat Installment

    The Mortal Kombat video game franchise is one that is worthy of praise. From the first installment of the series in 1992, up to and including the latest installment released in 2011 (and re-released in 2012), the collection has left a vast number of gamers entertained and amazed. Although it has been a few years since the last release of the series, there are plenty of reasons to believe that there are more releases to come. In fact, just yesterday, Ed Boon (co-creator of Mortal...
  14. EA Shutting Down Online Servers for 50 Games When No Longer Supported by GameSpy on June 30th, 2014

    Some of you may recall the announcement of GameSpy's imminent closure back in April. Since then, subsequent information has been released regarding the fates of some games. Back in the glory days, a player would play a game x amount of times over until they got bored of it. Perhaps, the gamer would then switch to another title and return to the firstly mentioned game sometime down the road. In today’s day and age, gamers need to play certain aspects of games just in case they are no...
