Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will not be coming to the Wii U

by: John - - 0 Comments

The Wii U is having a hard time getting and keeping third party titles and you can add Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare to the list of games that will be skipping the Nintendo system.

Michael Condrey, co-founder of Sledgehammer Games, tweeted out the systems that it will be available and the only ones that the game will appear on are the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

The Wii and the Wii U had been getting versions of Call of Duty so this will be the first one in a while where Activision, their decision as Michael says, decided to bypass producing one for. 

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare will be out on November 4th.

The next chapter for Perfect World Intenationa: New Horizons is now available in the Free-to-play universe.  Titled Chill of Luneska, the latest expansion will offer new quest lines and plenty more guild-based events to help enhance the popular MMO.  The guild-modes will help build upon the PvP already available in game by adding Territory Resource War, a weekly event that will deliver opportunities for players to interact with one another.  It isn't about a one-time battle anymore but, rather, a continuous battle for resources and riches.

Some screenshots are available and more can be found at the PWI main website, including where to download the expansion for your current client.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel now available for pre-order on Steam

by: Russell - - 0 Comments

We're getting one step closer to shooting and looting on the moon as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is now available for pre-ordering on Steam...but wait, there's more.  This whole weekend is pretty much Borderlands madness...well, it's really 2K madness as various 2K games are up to 80% off, but let's focus on the task at hand here.

For starters, from now through August 25th, owners of either Borderlands 1 or 2 will get 10% off when they pre-order The Pre-Sequel (sadly this doesn't stack if you own both), plus pre-ordering will get you the Shock Drop Slaughter Pit bonus content.  Don't own Borderlands 2 yet but want to see what all the excitement's about?  Now's the time to find out as Borderlands 2 is free to play this weekend on Steam, and if you happen to like what you see you can pick it up for $4.99 for the regular version and $9.99 for the Game of the Year Edition which includes several DLC packs including the four main DLC packs and both the Psycho and Mechromancer packs, as well as a little bit more.

On the wild frontier with Wild Frontera

by: Jeff - - 0 Comments

Wild Frontera is a game that's been on my docket to write about for some time now. It's a spaghetti western themed top down shooter that looks like it has elements of an adventure game and a bullet hell. In other words, it's right up my alley.

You play as a gunman on the run from the law in the wild west, fending off attacks from wild animals and outlaws alike. Judging by the wanted posters that announce the bossfights, you might also be a bounty hunter, or on a vengeance-fueled killing spree. It promises to have gratuitous Western tropes, so it's probably one of the two. Best of all, the game will support Co-op play for up to four players, so you and your bandito buddies can blaze through waves of enemies and work together to take down notorious criminals.

It's currently in development, but has already been successfully Greenlit on Steam, and according do the teaser video it's due to come out this fall. Knowing how game development typically goes though, I don't know how accurate that is. You can follow Wild Frontera's progress by reading Tamarian Studio's devblog, or by following them on Twitter and IndieDB.

Oops: Resident Evil Revelations 2 possibly outed

by: Jeremy - - 0 Comments

While it hasn’t been confirmed by Capcom, it appears as though Resident Evil: Revelations 2 is on its way to consoles in the near future. The game appears to have been leaked on the Xbox.com domain. The title and an early version of the boxart were found by the French site Gamer In a Box.

The image has, obviously, been removed since that attention was brought to it and both Capcom and Microsoft are remaining quiet. This would appear to be a direct follow up to the highly acclaimed game that was released originally on the Nintendo 3DS in early 2012, but later made its way to consoles. Our own Russell absolutely loved the 3DS version while Cyril was a little less impressed when it made the leap to PC and consoles. I don’t expect to hear anything official about the game until at least the Tokyo Game Show next month.

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham introduces Braniac

by: Nathaniel - - 0 Comments

Joker has the whole wide world in his pants.  Or at least that's what he wants when he finds out Braniac's plan to shrink the Earth down to the size where such a desire is possible.

Today's new LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham trailer features Braniac.  He wants to shrink the Earth apparently and either doesn't realize or doesn't care how pointless that be.  But whatever, it's a LEGO game; logic is not required - only fun.  

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will be out this fall for EVERY GAMING MACHINE AND HANDHELD CURRENTLY BEING COMMONLY SUPPORTED - every single one: Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3, PS Vita, WiiU, 3DS, and PC.

Goodwill opens The Grid : donated games become force for good

by: Ben Berry - - 0 Comments

If you're not familiar with Goodwill, they're a charity that uses the money from selling donated items (aka Goodwill stores) to educate and train people for employment opportunities. That model has worked for a while, and with 83% of the funds raised going directly to programs, it's got a pretty serious track record.

That's not to say the over 100 year old organization isn't up for learning some new tricks. Back in early June, Goodwill opened The Grid: Powered by Goodwill which gives them a computer and video gaming speicific storefront location for used and refurbished video game products that have been donated. Located in Charlotte, NC, the pictures provided by a Reddit user show a pretty nice setup, with a ton of older systems supported from NES up to a PS3 being prominently displayed. Prices are allegedly quite good (as to be expected of Goodwill stores), and I saw several harder to find older items in just these few photos.

This store seems to have primarily only received regional press, but if these started to pop up all over the country, this could be a big thing for gamers, keeping older products out of landfills, and making gaming available to those on lesser budgets. So if you're in NC, maybe you can pick up some retro titles or consoles you've been looking for at a good price while assisting a charitable organization with a history of helping others. 

(Hat tip to our own Travis Huinker for bringing this to my attention.)
