  1. Dark Souls Fans May Love Bloodborne After All

    Bloodborne is a soon to be released PlayStation 4 exclusive that has been talked about since early 2014. Soon after its first look video was shown in June of 2014, the game's project director Hidetaka Miyazaki claimed that he wanted to appeal to a larger audience with the game by making it easier to progress through. This comment did appeal to a large audience, as many players are not found of ridiculously difficult gaming, but it did not appeal to most Dark Souls fans. This is a problem...
  2. The Wii-U's Horror Genre "Void" is Being Filled with Bizerta: Silent Evil

    Bizerta: Silent Evil is an indie game that is currently still in development by the German studio Edrox Interactive. Recently, Ouissem from Edrox Interactive sat down to discuss his upcoming game with Randy Freer from Cubed3. In this interview, Ouissem revealed a lot of information about his horror game, which was inspired mostly from Resident Evil and Silent Hill. Bizerta: Silent Evil takes place in a mansion that has limited lighting. In fact, most lighting in the game is provided by the...
  3. EA is Taking Battlefield Hardline Feedback Seriously

    On July 22, 2014, DICE delayed Battlefield Hardline from its original release date of October 22, 2014 to March 27, 2015. The reason for this delay was to obtain feedback through a public beta and implement many changes into the game before official release, and this is exactly what happened. Battlefield Hardline is currently due for release on March 17, 2015. However, the open multiplayer beta was available from February 3rd until February 8th of 2015 (since the original announcement, the...
  4. Star Wars Battlefront III Confirmed to Be a FPS

    The last Star Wars Battlefront game to reach the shelves of stores across the world was Star Wars Battlefront: Elite Squadron, which was released in 2009. Now, six years later, fans of the series are dying to get more information about the newest edition from EA, Star Wars Battlefront III. However, many fans were not content with the last leak of information from EA, that being that Battlefront III will be EA's "major FPS of 2015." EA stated that they plan to have one major FPS per year....
  5. Fans of Halo: MCC Promise to Boycott Guardians Until MCC is "Fixed"

    Halo 5: Guardians is scheduled to release sometime in 2015. However, players of Halo: The Master Chief Collection, which was released on November 11th of last year, believe that the developers at 343 Industries have some work to do before they should get any money from Halo 5: Guardians. Upon release, The Master Chief Collection players were greeted with a broken game. Matchmaking did not work properly, and even offline players had issues with achievements and endless bugs. Considering that...
  6. Rumor: The Wii-U Has Been Exploited to Run Homebrew Applications

    On public forums, next generation console sections are littered with questions regarding exploits on the new consoles, and all have been answered with "no." However, according the MaxConsole's recent news, a user named MarioNumber1 has successfully updated the first known Wii-U exploit, thanks to developers that remain unnamed. This release should be taken with a grain of salt, and all viewers should be skeptical, as it could easily be a method of advertising the website. However, MaxConsole...
  7. OUYA Releases Subscription to Over 800 Games for the Price of One

    The OUYA is a micro development console that is pushing boundaries that have not been pushed by any high end console on the market. Two of these boundaries, of course, are the development of games, and the availability to physically modify the console. The console allows for any developer to make games, and then experience the created games on the console. This may seem appealing to developers, but not to normal gamers, but that is completely incorrect. The OUYA developer kit is so simple,...
  8. Bloodborne: The Dark Souls of the Next Generation PS4

    Bloodborne is one of the many Playstation 4 exclusives that was announced in this year's E3 event. The game's release date is sometime in 2015, with months ranging from as early as March, or as late as December. Regardless of the release date, the first look video shown at E3 is far from descriptive as to what the game has in store other than lots of gore. Fortunately, leaked gameplay and an interview with game director Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of the Dark Souls series, can clear up...
  9. The Last of Us will Come to PS4 This Month

    The significance of a game originally for the PS3 console being released for the PS4 is little. However, for this specific instance, that is not the case. The Last of Us was announced to be coming to the PS4 console a few days ago, but shortly after, the announcement was denied and stated as 'not credible'. The announcement was claimed to have been falsely made by an employee. Now, only a few days later, Tidux on Twitter announced that despite all previous rumors, The Last of Us is in fact...
  10. Apple Purchases Beats Electronics for $3 Billion

    Investments are normally made in small businesses. This is usually the same with purchases of companies and stock. The reasoning behind this is that the company or business could have potential on a scale of billions of dollars, while at the time only be handling figures in the thousands. The purchase of a company or product that is seeming to already be at its peak is not something that most expect. This is likely why Apple's purchase of Beats Electronics came as a surprise to many. The...
  11. Wii U to Have GameCube Controller Compatibility with Super Smash Bros

    Nintendo has recently revealed on Twitter that they are releasing a new adapter in the coming days that will allow Wii U owners to play Super Smash Bros using a GameCube controller. Alone, this is not highly significant to the Wii U community, as it is just a single game. However, it is more than likely that Nintendo will be utilizing this adapter for many more games that the console is backwards compatible with. The idea that Nintendo would only release such an adapter for a single game...
  12. Killing Floor 2 Will Run a Basic Engine Spiked with Realism

    Individual developers in the gaming industry are often known for specific aspects that each of them offer through their games. For example, DICE is known for their original engines created for games such as Battlefield 3. Tripwire, the developer of Killing Floor 2, is known for multiple strengths in their games, and will utilize all of these strengths to blow the socks off of upcoming Killing Floor 2 players. One of the major considerations for the upcoming release was what engine to use....
  13. "Wasteland 2" Scheduled for Late August after 26 Years of Anticipation

    Using a Kickstarter to fund the development of a video game is unpredictable. It is risky for gamers because, in most cases, they will not be refunded if the Kickstarter does not make enough money. On the other hand, some developers make well over the amount of money they had hoped to make for a specific game. This is exactly the case for Wasteland 2. InXile Entertainment, the developers of the game, set their goal at $900,000, and made well over three times that amount, making around...
  14. Metro: Last Light - Game Review

    Metro: Last Light, the sequel to Metro 2033, takes place after World War III in the year 2034. The factions and conflict follow closely along the lines of World War II historically. Artyom, the main character, travels along the wasteland that was once Moscow. He confronts mutants, enemies, and friends throughout the story while mostly lost from his own faction. This game has a post nuclear warfare story line that will please Fallout fans. However the RPG aspect in the game that many...
