Here's eight screenshots for the upcoming Far Cry 4 and they look amazing. The colors just seem to pop and the environments just seem so full of life. I don't know about you but I could probably just spend time walking through the Himalayas looking at the wild life. In reality, I'll probably be running fast away from the white tiger.

Here's your first look at NBA Live 15

by: John - - 0 Comments

EA has released a brand new trailer for NBA Live 15. The video features a lot of Damian Lillard, which is obvious since he's the cover athlete, but the Cavs get a lot of loving too. Speaking of Love, they even have Kevin Love in the Cavs uniform in there. And the person he was traded for, Andrew Wiggins, makes his gaming debut in a Minnesota Timberwolves uniform withe a nice dunk.

Look for NBA Live 15 on October 7th.

Illegal, untraceable weapons. This is what Gage is all about in Payday 2 and he has some new hardware to bring with you on all those heists.

Overkill has revealed that the Gage Assault Pack for Payday 2 will be available on Steam this Thursday, September 4th for $4.99 and includes a variety of new weapons, mods and melee weapons. My favorite so far is the grenade launcher as it looks like it will be perfect to clear a room before your team gets ganged up on. 

Be sure to check out the website for the Gage Assault Pack also as it is absolutely amazing. I honestly had to look at the page I was on multiple times to be sure I didn't accidentally click on a page for Battlefield Hardline. 

The Gage assault pack includes the following...

  • 4 Weapons
  • 28 Mods
  • 4 Melee Weapons
  • 4 Masks
  • 4 Patterns
  • 4 Materials
  • 10 new achievements 

Got a PS4 or Vita? Want some themes?

by: Jeremy - - 0 Comments

If I had one complaint to make about both my PS4 and Vita, it would be how plain their main screens are. I have gotten accustomed to being able to customize things with both my 360 and my PS3, although you can do custom wallpapers on the Vita. I want themes damn it! Well, it turns out that themes are in fact coming to both systems very soon.

The PlayStation Blog revealed that theme support for both systems is coming with the Fall updates. There will surely be a wide variety of premium themes offered for sale through the PSN store, as well as options to customize things to your own liking. It will be a nice change of pace to add a little flare and personality to my menu screens.

Sony held an event in Japan today and Capcom officially confirmed the worst kept secret in the industry today. Yep, Resident Evil Revelations 2 is real and its coming in 2015 for the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and the PC. Poor Wii U. Unfortunately no other details were revealed, but they did release a teaser trailer for the game that you can view below. 

Also shown was the first trailer for the Resident Evil re-release coming for the PS4, PS3.... well everything you would it expect to be on. Not on Wii U of course. Anyways, the Resident Evil remake that was originally released on the Gamecube is one of my favorite survival horror games of all time. I remember me and my friend having speed runs to see who could get the lowest time. I think I got mine down to 2 hours at one point. 

Check out the trailers below.
