Fallout 4 mods coming to Xbox One on May 31

by: Chapel - - 0 Comments

In very exciting news, mods for Fallout 4 are finally arriving on Xbox One soon. It's sort of a big deal, as well; it is the first time ever that mods are coming to consoles.

In addition to the mods themselves, a mod browser and installer will be coming as well to make things as simple as possible--think Steam's workshop system.

You can learn more from the official Xbox video below.

Battleborn $20 off all platforms via 2K Store, second DLC character revealed

by: Russell - - 0 Comments

A couple of days ago we posted about Alani, Battleborn's first of five DLC characters.  However, 2K and Gearbox have also announced that Battleborn will be $20 off through Satruday for all platforms on the 2K Store, both the base game and the Digital Deluxe Edition.

In addition, the next of the DLC characters was also revealed.  Pendles, the 27th Battleborn, is a snake-man assassin that wears high-top sneakers.  That just kind of sounds weird...and looks even weirder.  Then again given all of the video games I've played over the years I'm sure I've seen and/or played as a lot stranger than a sneaker-wearing snake.

Your summer is a little more free: No Man's Sky delayed until August

by: Sean Cahill - - 0 Comments

Unfortunately, I think we all saw this one coming.

After Kotaku posted up an article a few days ago stating that promotional boards and posters were telling advertisers and outlets to put a "COMING SOON" sticker on everything because the game was delayed, it was only a matter of time until Sony had to admit that No Man's Sky had suffered another delay.

Sony made it official today, updating the main site with release information stating the exploration game will hit the shelves on August 9 of this year.

There isn't much else to share other than we're used to seeing ambitious titles like this suffer setbacks, but this is a tad different given how close we were to the launch date.

On the bright side, this frees gamers up a bit to play other titles coming out this summer!

Adam Savage checks out NVIDIA's VR Funhouse

by: John - - 0 Comments

NVIDIA's VR FunHouse is a great demonstration of the processing power that can be achieved by the latest GeForce cards such as the GeForce GTX 1080. There's a ton of computations done in the various games that the FunHouse presents.

Adam Savage of Mythbuster fame stopped by to take a look and was amazed at how NVIDIA was able to model some of the real world physics that you experience in VR FunHouse. 

It's a pretty damn fun looking sandbox and one that I'd love to get my hands on with my HTC Vive. What's really cool is NVIDIA has open sourced the game so you can go in and fiddle around with it and modify it as you please.

The GeForce GTX 1080 is on sale today and they've already sold out at my local Microcenter. I can't wait to pick one up to power my Vive and other non-VR games.

It is the end of another week as we prepare to close out May 2016. We're wrapping up this month's Now Loading segments with rundowns of Dungeons 2, Overwatch, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan.

Behind the scenes with Total War: Warhammer

by: Rob - - 0 Comments

Yesterday was the release of Total War: Warhammer. We posted a pretty cool 360 degree trailer to get a taste of the battlefield. Today comes another video, but this one is a little lighter on the on-screen action, instead taking a look at what's going on behind that screen. Or rather, in the development studio where all that code came to be to create the executable that's driving the video card to illuminate the screen... But really it's more about what was going on in the minds of the developers as they attempted to being tabletop miniatures and rule sets to life in a digital medium... Whatever, it's pretty interesting and under 5 minutes, just check out the video.  

New details emerge about 2017 Mega Man animated series and...oh boy.

by: Russell - - 0 Comments

I am a huge fan of Mega Man.  I've enjoyed most of the games and even the Ruby Spears animated series from the 90s (cheesy as it was).  However, when I heard a while back that a new Mega Man animated series was going to be produced for 2017, naturally I was pretty excited about it, though we had no details...until now.  A friend on Facebook posted a link to a post on the Capcom Unity Forums where some new details had been revealed about the series.  After reading that post my excitement is starting to turn towards skepticism.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that the series has to be based off of the classic games.  After all, we have had animated series based off of Battle Network and Starforce.  However, the description given kind of sounds like a mix of Mega Man and "My Life As a Teenage Robot".  The description talks about how the series will follow the adventures of Aki Light (Mega Man) as he faces threats to Silicon City while keeping his identity a secret and maintain a normal robot schoolkid life.

I'm not bashing the concept; quite the opposite in fact.  I'm really curious as to how this will play out.  My only concern is that they try to take this series and say "this is the same Mega Man that you remember from the classic games".  If they instead pull a Battle Network/Starforce and make this series it's own entity in the franchise, that I could get behind.  Just don't try to completely rewrite the story from how we've known it for nearly thirty years.

So apparently there is a new Ghostbusters game coming out

by: Nathan - - 0 Comments

Huh... well I didn't realize this was a thing. Apparently a new Ghostbusters game is coming out this July to coincide with the new movie but from the looks of it, will not be based on the movie itself. 

This game will not feature the cast of the new Ghostbusters movie but will feature another brand new cast of characters. This game also appears that it will be an isometric twin stick shooter with four player co-op. To be honest, I enjoy these kinds of games so I can see this game being somewhat fun. Now I'm just speculating here but this game to me really just screams something that will be available free for Playstation Plus and if that's the case, at least we can try it for free. 

Ghostbusters will be available July 12th on Xbox One, PS4 and PC

As for the new movie, all I'm going to say is that I have no interest in seeing it. 

Here's a new look at Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands

by: John - - 0 Comments

I have a big soft spot for Ghost Recon so I'm pretty excited about this one. Ubisoft released a new trailer for Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Wildlands today. 

The series moves to an open world environment and sounds like there will be a lot of flexibility in terms of how you and your teammates tackle missions. More info will be coming out in a month at E3, but for now, check out how great the game's looking at this stage.

Mirror's Edge Catalyst trailer doesn't really answer question of "Why We Run"

by: Randy - - 0 Comments

The launch trailer for Mirror's Edge Catalyst is bright, minty, and cool—just like we expected. It sure looks neat. But this launch trailer, "Why We Run," is only a vague answer to its own question. Why are you running, Faith Connor? Because "Dogan sends his best"? Because "some runner got out of juvy"? Because Faith has to "save us all"?

That's fine. The story won't make or break Mirror's Edge Catalyst. A stronger hook would've been nice, but maybe it's enough to just run a marthon or two across the rooftops. 

To this day, the world of Mirror's Edge is visually striking. Very few games have captured anything quite like it. But something that never got much applause was the story. It wasn't actively hated, just less remarkable. Mirror's Edge relies more on its aesthetic and admittedly rare first-person free-running antics. Sure, back in 2008, messenger bags and parkour were still a part of the future. Having a full-on Asian protagonist was (is) a rare sight, too. But those things alone won't turn a lot of heads nowadays. Getting a sweet theme song from Chvrches doesn't hurt, though. 

All I'm saying is that Mirror's Edge Catalyst actually doesn't have much competition, but it's still going to be difficult to pull off sales numbers that will make EA greenlight a third game. Good luck, Faith. We'll see if gamers get the message (haha).

Mirror's Edge Catalyst launches in two weeks on June 7 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
