Cyberpunk 2077 appears to have huge amounts of usable vehicles

by: Chapel - - 0 Comments

Everyone's new favorite developer CD Projekt RED's next project, Cyberpunk 2077, has been just shy of top secret. Little is known about the game, and CDPR don't appear to want anyone to know anything, but fortunately for us, they have some job listings on their website that give some substantial information about the game.

Basically, they are looking for people who can design usable vehicles, with several jobs dedicated to different aspects of vehicular gameplay. You can see the job listings here; they're interesting to look over, even aside from the potential implications of the game.

You can watch the teaser for the game below, which is a devastating 3.5 years old now. We'll just keep waiting, I guess.

 

Forza Horizon 3 goes gold, adds Halo Warthog

by: Chapel - - 0 Comments

Forza Horizon 3 is coming out September 27th, and as of today it has gone gold. And while that is exciting enough, we knew it would happen. What we didn't know was that the iconic Warthog from Halo was going to be a playable vehicle in the game. Best of all, it's free for anyone who has played Halo 5 or the Master Chief Collection on their Xbox One.

The blog post also lists all of the achievements for the game, as well as the recommended PC specs. For the full blog post and more information about achievements, PC specs, and language support, click here.

Look at me, I'm the train conductor now in The Final Station

by: Randy - - 0 Comments

All aboard. Next stop: The Final Station. Actually, there's no stopping this train. You're the conductor on an iron horse cutting through the post-apocalypse. Survive as long as you can, ride the rails, find fuel. There are dark-bodied infected all along the way; get out your gun. Pick up survivors, see to their comfort and safety—though people can oftentimes be more trouble than they're worth. That's like real life, right? And keep moving forward—even though the world is over.

This little game looks awesome. Like a more hopeful, but still grim, Snowpiercer, if you've seen that movie. 

The Final Station is on Steam today, August 30.

I'm going to attack people with a spiked paddle ball in Nuka-World

by: Randy - - 0 Comments

In Fallout 4: Nuka-World, raiders rule the roost. But not all of it. They start off with only one section of Nuka-World, which has many themepark themes. There are even three different raider clans running around, each with their own aesthetic.

And don't worry, being the bad guy may not be your bag. Yes, you can be the bad guy, but developer Bethesda went to great lengths ensuring you could be a not-so-bad bad guy, too. You can be what they jokingly call a "kind-hearted raider." The three raider factions run from the classically ultra violent, to the downlow and technologically stealthy, to the off-their-meds crazy.

I'm seeing lots of raggedly cool new armor sets, some sharp edged, some psychologically unstable, some even debonair—in that wasteland-y kinda way.

New weapons incoming, too. There's a paddle ball which you can mod with spikes. I mean, what? Nuka Cola itself has been weaponized in a variety of kooky ways, too, making the weapon-modding scene weirder than ever.

This is the capstone project to a year-long run of Fallout 4 downloadable content. It's Bethesda's way of saying, Hey, take a break from your usual save-'em-all schedule, visit Fallout's happiest place on earth, and blow some stuff up while you're there.

Nuka-World is available Tuesday, August 30, as part of the season pass content. Or you can purchase it separately for $19.99. It's on Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Get a closer look at Watch Dogs 2's improved open world

by: Chapel - - 0 Comments

I liked the first Watch Dogs just fine, but like most other people, I was disappointed by how bland and lifeless it felt after not long at all. Fortunately, Watch Dogs 2 looks to be making a lot of steps to correct that course, and this most recent gameplay walkthrough from Ubisoft has my hopes higher than before.

The world itself looks much more varied and alive, and not to mention massive. It does seem like maybe not the best idea to make a world even bigger when your last world felt so empty, but there do seem to be many more points of interest and activities populating San Francisco than Chicago.

The seamless co-op gameplay also seems promising, but we all know how that went last time as well. Basically, everything in this video looks good, but we should probably all try to maintain our reservations until closer to release day this November.
