Call of Duty 4 Remster confirmed via Twitter

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Fionna Schweit


so what your looking at there, is the first ever confirmation that humanity is doomed, I MEAN, that much beloved COD 4 is getting a remake for the new  Infinite Warfare: Legacy Edition. For at least several days rumor has been circulating that the first ever Modern Warfare, Call of Duty Modern Warfare, would be getting an HD remake in the coming months, now it seems that Activision has officially confirmed it, via emojis, on twitter. I cant believe i just typed that sentence. So there you go, we may get an awesome remake of Crash and Shipment. I for one will probably buy it just for the fun of playing a game where grenade spam and noob tubes kill me before I can ever take a shot.

GameWisp stream tools aims to bring a sub button to the masses

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

GameWisp is a new product designed for streamers who are not partners on Twitch to be able to get themselves the same type of benefits that partners get. The main benefit they provide is a sub button just like the partnered Twitch streamers have.  CTO Eli Hooten was kind enough to take a few moment from his busy PAX schedule to tell us what GameWisp is all about.


Though I have not been able to try GameWisp out yet myself, it seems like it fills a much needed niche in the industry for smaller non-partnered streamers who usually have to risk the minefield that is Paypal to accept donations on their Twitch channels. I have our featured streamer Roblogfett trying it out, and will publish another report once he gets a good feel for how it handles.

Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse Gets Pre-Order/ 1st Print Bonuses

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

RPG fans looking for their fix from the Shin Megami Tensei series will get their next chance to check out a new entry in the long running franchise with the release of Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse on the Nintendo 3DS this summer.

Today in a press release Atlus USA announced that players who pre-order the game or pick up a 1st print copy on launch will get a little extra bonus with their physical copy of the game – a set of 3 metal pins inspired by the game.


Shin Megami Tensei IV: Apocalypse’s story overlaps with the events of 2013’s Shin Megami Tensei IV but players will not have had to played the original game to understand the events in Apocalypse, however returning players will see some familiar faces.

In their press release Atlus USA highlighted several key gameplay features. They are as follows:

  • Divine Intrigue– Choose between peace or anarchy while being a pawn in the gods’ chess game.
  • Combat Partners– Hunting demons is dangerous, so count on some backup! Alongside the standard three demons, players will be able to rely on one of seven partners to help win battles.
  • Oodles of Demons– Be on your guard because Tokyo is infested with a series record 450+ demons to fight, fuse, or recruit.
  • Revamped Demon Fusion– Demons will have affinities for certain skills, so players can better plan the outcome of fusions.
  • Classic SMT Combat– Prospective Hunters will exploit weaknesses, boost attributes, and unlock skill bonuses with the returning Press Turn and Smirking systems.

Total War: Warhammer Scenario Walk Through with Andy Hall

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

Total Warhammer is an upcoming tactical army battle game from SEGA and Creative Assembly. We had the amazing chance to watch a guided play through of one of the games missions with Andy Hall. Andy walked us through an attack scenario where he was playing as the humans and attacking a group of vampire counts. 

During his play through we were able to see many of the games mechanics, including the new ability to control in first person many of the games artillery units, and the improvements that have been made to calvary units to make them feel more impactful. From what I saw and was able to play, the game is taking shape as a wonderful telling of the Warhammer: Fantasy world put in to the frame work of a total war game.

Ill let Andy do most of the telling, but when the video starts up Rae and I are standing next to Andy and he’s about to get down to business with our human faction taking on the Vampire counts. Keep an eye on the screen while you listen to his narration and explanation of whats going on as he fights for the fate of man. 


I for one can’t wait to get my hands on Total War: Warhmmer when it releases on May 24th. 


Do A Barrel Roll With These Two Star Fox Zero Gameplay Videos

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Star Fox Zero

Earlier in the week, after all of the PAX East madness had subsided, my wife & I decided to do a co-op stream of Star Fox Zero. This take on the Star Fox series, the first console release since 2005, brings with it a unique control scheme that has players looking at the Wii U game pad and television screen simultaneously.

Our full review is still incoming, but for now I hope you’ll enjoy these two videos covering the game’s tutorial section and first real missions. In this co-op setup my wife controlled the Arwing’s movements with a Wii Remote and I used the Wii U game pad to control the artillery.

No mans sky wont have a story, but its going to have lore

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Fionna Schweit

No mans sky is one of this years biggest games, but it doesn’t have a story per-say. The developer has confirmed that there will be no cut scenes, or other normal style of story telling in game, but that doesn’t mean there will be no environment or atmosphere. Instead the story will be told through  the atmosphere, the land, and the people who inhabit it. The environment will be the story.

In order to do that the developers brought on board Dave Gibbons and James Swallow veteran Hollywood story tellers with credits like Watchmen and Star Trek under their belts. The video is an advertisment yes, but its also a neat look in to what goes in to setting up a game like this, building its world and lore, with out telling any specific story.



Knight Squad PAX East Guided Demo & Video

Posted on April 28, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

ChinsawAwesome’s 8 player indie brawler Knight Squad had their own booth at PAX East and we were able to get a guided tour of the mayhem filled multiplayer title from one of the developers. Players take to the arena was one of several colored Knights with the objective of capturing a chalice placed within the arena.  Just don’t think it will be easy to capture because every player has access to different power-ups and ability pick-ups placed throughout the map!

Last man standing style death match isn’t the only activity isn’t Knight Squad’s only mode – players can also test the strength of their friendships with Medieval Soccer, Capture the Flag, Capture the Grail and more. Knight Squad also supports up to 8 players for chaotic evil online times!

Knight Squad is currently available on Steam and the Xbox Live Marketplace.
