Four New State of Decay 2 Screenshots Released At GamesCom 2017

Posted on August 22, 2017 by Rae Michelle Richards

Microsoft alongside State of Decay 2 developer Undead Labs released four new screenshots and a brand new trailer for the 2018 survival title at GamesCom in Cologne, Germany.

State of Decay 2 is, of course, a direct sequel to the 2012 Xbox 360 original that was ported to Windows PC a year later. Like its predecessor, SoD2 will allow players to immerse themselves in a single-player experience where they must team up with other survivors and build settlers to keep themselves safe from the oncoming hordes of the head.

New features and changes from the original game are to be expected: new to State of Decay 2 is the ability for up to three friends to join your game for some co-op survival fun. Unlike the previous game there is no single player character – instead, every survivor in your game world will have their own unique appearance and stats. Other noteworthy additions include Xbox One X enhancements for Microsoft’s upcoming beefed up Xbox One Console. State of Decay 2 will also be a “Xbox Play Anywhere” title meaning that if you purchase it for the home console or through the Windows 10 Store you’ll get it on all supported platforms.

Square Enix Makes Final Fantasy XV Delay Official

Posted on August 15, 2016 by Rae Michelle Richards

Square Enix announced during GamesCOM today that the rumored Final Fantasy XV delay is indeed official. The long awaited game will now make its debut on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One worldwide on November 29th, 2016. The publisher also announced that the delay of the game will not affect the digital release fo the tie-in film, KingsGlaive: Final Fantasy XV, which is set to debut at the end of the month.

What’s the reason for the delay? Well there was actually very little PR / Corporate speak in Square’s news release – they’ve admitted that the game needs more polish and QA testing before it is ready for prime time.

Final Fantasy XV

FFXV’s director Hajime Tabata is quoted regarding the two month release as saying:

“From the moment we joined this project, our vision was to create a level of freedom and realism previously unseen in the series. Regrettably, we need a little bit more time to deliver on this vision and are confident that this new release date will help us achieve this.”

Square’s admission that the game needs a bit more polish falls in line with a rumor that sprang up on 4-chan (unsourced of course (**ALSO POTENTIAL UNCONFIRMED SPOILER WARNINGS AT THAT LINK**) that claimed FFXV was only partially playable on production PlayStation 4 units. According to the leaker only about 2 hours was playable on PS4 and the Xbox One version faired even worse.

As soon as we know more about the delay of Final Fantasy XV we will let you know. I got the chance to play the Titan Demo at E3 and was generally impressed with what I played.

PlayStation 4 might be all the gaming press (us included!) have been talking about these past few months but lest we not forget that the PS3 is still alive and kicking! polyphony digital’s latest racing masterpiece will head to store shelves on December 6th Sony announced during their GamesCom presentation.

We’ve known about Gran Turismo 6 for sometime, as the game was originally hinted at way back in 2011, right after GT5 shipped. It was finally revealed this past May, and while GT5 may bear a passing resemblance to its predecessor, this latest version sports 33 different tracks, 1200 cars and major upgrades to the rendering engine.

Alongside the announcement they also showcased a brand new trailer for the game, which weve included after the jump.

Posted on August 20, 2013 by Rae Michelle Richards

Owning a PS Vita is about to get more financially feasible with the announcement of a $50 price cut across the board. In addition to the price cut for the system, Sony also revealed that the system’s proprietary memory cards would also see their price tags slashed.

If you already own a Vita but want to stock up on some extra memory cards the adjusted pricing is as follows: $14.99 for a 4GB stick, $19.99 for 8GB, $39.99 for 16GB and $79.99 for a 32GB memory card.

One last cool thing of note – this price cut not only affects existing models, but also previous bundles. So, if you can find the limited edition white Assassin’s Creed Vita bundle, which came with Assassin’s Creed: Liberation + a 4GB memory card, you are in for some extra savings!

Microsoft Won’t Have a Presence At TGS or Gamescom 2012

Posted on June 14, 2012 by Rae Michelle Richards

Microsoft will be skipping out on both the Tokyo Games Show and Gamcom in Germnay this year in order to focus on smaller promotional events the hardware manufacturer announced today through Major Nelson’s blog.

This leaves Sony as the only big manufacturer left to attend Gamescom, which is the largest public gaming convention in the world. Nintendo confirmed earlier this year that they too would also not have a presence this year at the show. Now that I think about it, Microsoft also pulled out of CES, this year. Their keynote at the Las Vegas show was unfortunately their last after a number of years in attendance.

Does this mean that Microsoft will go the Nintendo route? – Smaller invite only events and live streaming conferences? We’ll see in the months leading up the launch of Halo 4 and Smart Glass. Surely they can’t launch both of these products without some kind of promotion.
