New Gratuitous Space Battles 2 trailers has all the pew-pew you could ever want

by: Chuck - - 0 Comments

Positech games has released a new trailer for Gratuitous Space Battles 2 which shows off the some new gameplay footage of the game with a cool movie voice narrating over top of it.  

The game does look like a big jump over the last game and it does have a good looking ship editor as well which should increase your fun with the game while dramatically decreasing your free time.  The game is slated to hit beta later this year.

Driveclub not a part of the 6 free October games for PS Plus... still free

by: Jeremy - - 0 Comments

Did that title make any sense? I didn’t think so...

The PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection adds 6 games per month for PS Plus members. Driveclub launches next month and has always been promoted as having a special, PS Plus edition that is free for members. Common sense would tell you that means that Driveclub would be one of the the six free games for the month. A lot of people have theorized that this would be the case, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. That though, however, would be wrong!

Sony has clarified the subject in the comment section of one of the posts on the PlayStation Blog. The PS Plus edition of Driveclub is something separate from the monthly additions. So, in fact, members are getting seven titles this month, with Driveclub and the six monthly additions. See, I told you that is paid to be a member of this program!

IT'S HAPPENING! GX3 reaches their funding goal with less than two days left

by: Jeff - - 0 Comments

For those who don't know about GaymerX, it's an alternative convention celebrating diversity in gaming- with a special emphasis on the LGBT community. The last time I wrote about it, their future was uncertain due to being cripplingly over budget from their second convention. But thanks to some generous donations, in a relatively short time they went from being deep in the red to potentially doing a third convention.

With 40 hours left to their Kickstarter for GX3: Everyone Games, they finally reached their $80,000 funding goal- meaning that doing a third convention is a real possibility. The final cost for the convention is estimated to be around $159,500, but they project that they'll be able to cover the other half of the cost with sponsorship deals. GX3 is set to take place in the California Bay area, either in November or December of this year. If you want to get your tickets early at a discounted price, or just want to support this celebration of diversity in gaming, check out their Kickstarter page and pledge some money. Oh, and if you're wondering why the name of the convention got shortened to GX, they wanted to simplify the name to encourage inclusivity. Since not everyone attending or participating is necessarily a 'Gaymer'.

Also, shout out to IGN for having a better finger on the pulse than I do, and making me aware that this was even happening.

The TGS trailer for The Evil Within is constructed from the stuff of nightmares

by: Chuck - - 0 Comments

The Evil Within is a game I've been interested in for a while.  There aren't a lot of good horror games on the market so I'm hoping this one delivers the scares when it comes out on October 14th.

From this new trailer it looks like the game will deliver at least the visuals and tone.  It's an interesting trailer as it focuses less on the horrors of the game and more on control and being forced to do things that you don't want to do.  I'm just hoping the game is half as scary as the PT demo that Sony released last month for the new Silent Hills game.

Logitech is bringing out a new mechanical keyboard with the G910 Orion Spark

by: John - - 0 Comments

I love mechanical keyboards. They are responsive, nice to type on, and make that awesome clicky sound. Logitech is going to get into the mechanical keyboard market with their new Logitech G910 Orion Spark RGB Mechanical Keyboard

The G910 is using new switches. The Romer-G switches is suppose to register your presses 25% faster than other switches and is rated for up to 70 million keystrokes. Yes, this keyboard isn't using the CherryMX switches, so it will be interesting to see how they hold up.

If you like to customize your keyboard with lighting, each key can be set to a color of your choice. Of course, you'll also be able to customize the key functions with the Logitech software.

Something interesting is that there's a tray to hold your iPhone or Android phone. What's this good for you say? Well, Logitech will have an app that will display information or let you control aspects of your computer that you can run on the phone. The tray will let you use your phone as a display and mimics some of Logitech's old keyboard with screens.

The G910 is expected to be out in November 2014 and with a suggested retail price of $179.99.

Here's the intro for the Cleveland Cavaliers on NBA 2K15

by: John - - 0 Comments

To say I'm excited about the Cleveland Cavaliers in this upcoming NBA season is an understatement. They have two top 10 players and a top 20 player on the team with Lebron James, Kevin Love, and Kyrie Irving as the next Big Three in the NBA. 

NBA 2K15 is coming in less than a month and Lebron James tweeted out the intro that you will see for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Even though it's just a game, the starting lineup intro just gives me goosebumps.

Yeah, I expect an epic season this year with them. Anyways, check out "The Land" as they are introduced.

Now that mechs are done and dusted, Piranha Games turns to space combat with Transverse

by: Nathaniel - - 0 Comments

I've never played Piranha's MechWarrior MMO because of my inability to pull the trigger on a gaming PC or non-garbage laptop, but our own robot overlord here at Gaming Nexus seems to adore it (All hail our might robot overlord!) so I guess they're doing something right.

And now Piranha is going to bring their own particular brand of right to another painfully underserved genre - space combat.

It's an MMORPG called Transverse.  Watch the reveal trailer, then learn more after the jump.
