The Division Agents going AWOL after update on Xbox One

One thing that’s sure to ruin your day would be to log into your favourite online MMO style game only to find that your character has been wiped after a recent update. That seems to be the case for some people who’ve updated to the latest version of Tom Clancy’s The Division. It does seem to be isolated to the Xbox One version of the game, but it is something of concern, especial...

Destiny’s April Update gets a launch trailer

Bungie has been teasing us with the content of the April Update over the last couple of weeks for Destiny, and thanks to the hard work of the Live Team, it is finally here. Whether it’s worth it however, still remains to be seen. Content for the update includes increased light level to 335, a new Quest, a new Strike, updated Prison of Elders and extra Guardian customisation. To celebrate the...

New Gears of War 4 trailer revealed

The Gears of War series has always been able to tug a bit at the heart strings with its trailers, and the latest trailer for the upcoming Gears of War 4 is no different. The game is set 25 years after the events of Gears of War 3, and follows JD Fenix (Marcus Fenix’s son) and his comrades as they fight off a new horror. The trailer sees our new hero being chased through the dark woods by som...

Doom open beta announced

April is turning out to be a real busy month for video games. We’re getting new game releases, DLC for other games and a couple of timed demos Betas to try out. So it is only fitting that another one has been announced for this month, and that game is none other than Doom, which will have an open beta that will run from 15 to 17 April. The Beta will include the same content that was availabl...

Gears of War 4 gets the lesser spotted split-screen co-op mode

We all have fond memories of playing games with our mates while being in the same room, using the same console, and the screen for that matter. Whether it was beating each other up in a fighter game, or shooting aliens in the face, it doesn’t matter, it was great fun! Couch Co-Op is however something that has almost gone the way of the Dodo due to online gaming becoming the standard, but it has fo...

Dark Souls III speed runners already clocking it at 90mins

We’re still a whole agonising, torturous week away from diving headlong into the torturous kingdom of Lothric, the setting for Dark Souls III. Yet there’s already people out there that’s clocking it in at less than 90 minutes! That’s shorter than the average summer blockbuster movie! Granted, this is on the Japanese version of the game, which has been out for what feels like an eternity, and...

Shadow of the Beast has a release date

Shadow of the Beast was announced what feels like about a decade ago (in 2013) at Gamescom, but we haven’t heard much about it since then. We did get some juicy gameplay footage at E3 last year, but not much else. The game did however get a release date of 17 May 2016. This was announced on the PS Blog, and some other more technical information has been given as well: [quote]Hi PlayStation Blog re...

Mass Effect Andromeda and a new BioWare IP looks stunning

That is according to BioWare’s Head of Design and Art, Alistair McNally, saying on Twitter that he had the opportunity to play both Mass Effect Andromeda and a new, unrevealed IP of the company: Played Mass Effect Andromeda yesterday and then today our new IP. Both of which are looking stunning. Today I wore a plain t-shirt. — Alistair McNally (@Al_McNally) March 24, 2016 The new IP was anno...

The beta will run until 18 April on all platforms. That’s a whopping 10 days if you decide to give it a bash on PS4! During the beta, players will be able to experience part of the story campaign as well as two...

The Burning Question: Are we unreasonable towards certain publishers?

There’s an old saying that goes: “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.” This certainly rings true for me, since I’m a trusting idiot that would like to see the good in everything and everyone, and that is especially true with video games, and the companies that produce them. But sometimes, that trust gets broken. One such company for me personally, is Ubisoft. In fact, it’s prob...

The Japanese launch trailer for Dark Souls III will make you very jealous

The Japanese people are indeed very lucky people, since Dark Souls III releases tomorrow in that country. And, as is customary in the industry, a game of this calibre is usually accompanied by an epic-looking launch trailer. The trailer really got me salivating at the mouth, and from what I’ve seen of the game itself, it looks amazing! The fact that I still have to wait a couple more weeks b...

Quantum Break might only be running at 720p on Xbox One

The good folks over at Digital Foundry had the opportunity to put the upcoming Quantum Break by Remedy Entertainment through its paces, and found that the resolution might be a bit… lacking. They tested the first few hours of the game, and found that it might only be running at 720p. That’s 360 pees less than what is expected at 1080p and 180 pees less than what most Xbox One games run at. The gam...
