The Rock Band 4 tracklist continues to take shape as it reaches it's October release date and Harmonix has just revealed the next set of tracks in the game. If the thousands of songs available isn't enough for you, well you can add some Black Keys, Heart and Rush to your collection.
Disturbed and System Of A Down are what caught my eye as I love both of those bands.
Here is the list of tracks being added...
Your band can hit the stage again on October 6th and will be available on PS4 and Xbox One.
A new SMITE patch arrives this week and with it brings Khepri, a new Egyptian Guardian. Of course the role of the Guardian is to play support and peel for the team, but Khepri brings some new mechanics into the game as well. Khepri's
His passive applies a shield to himself and the team every five seconds, his Rising Sun reduces damage that teammates take and his ultimate can revive teammates. Yup, that's right, it finally happened, Khepri can cast his ultimate on a teammate and if they die, they will be revived back at Khepri's location with a certain percentage of their max health. Combine this with blink or sprint and you can get far away from enemies before the friendly teammates is fully revived.
Also included in the patch is Anubis's tier 2 skin "Afterlife". There are also three new skins for Freya, Cabraken and Awilix.
"Renegade" Awilix is pretty much based off of the old school TV show "Knight Rider".
"Gamma Slam" Cabraken is pretty much based off of Incredible Hulk.
"All For One" Freya is based off of the Three Musketeers.
The final skin being introduced this patch is Medusa's gold skin.
For the full list of patch notes, including all the buffs and nerfs (good riddance Ah Puch, Ratatoskr and Bellona), be sure to check out SMITE's official website.
MLS fans hoping for the developers behind FIFA 16 to show their league some love are going to be pretty disappointed.
A couple of months ago, rumors were flying around the interwebs that Major League Soccer was going to get some attention in the upcoming launch in September with new stadiums added in. Unfortunately, those rumors were never confirmed or denied by EA Sports and, today, the final list of stadiums have been announced, and they are as follows:
Borussia Park (Borussia Mönchengladbach, Bundesliga, Germany)
Carrow Road (Norwich City, Barclay's Premier League, England)
CenturyLink Field (Seattle Sounders FC, Major League Soccer, United States)
El Monumental (River Plate, Argentine Primera Division, Argentina)
Fratton Park (Portsmouth FC, League Two, England)
King Abdullah Sports Park (Al-Ittihad & Al-Ahli, Saudi Abdul Latif Jameel League, Dubai)
Stade Velodrome (Olympique de Marseille, Ligue 1, France)
Vicarage Road (Watford, Barclay's Premier League, England)
Vitality Stadium (AFC Bournemouth, Barclay's Premier League, England)
If there was ever going to be a second stadium from MLS added, it was going to be CenturyLink Field, but my question to the developers of FIFA 16: I've played sports titles with over 100 accurate stadiums (The now defunct NCAA Football franchise) and you're going to tell everyone that you can't even muster up half that number for authentic stadiums? Granted, I don't think anyone expects to have every single club at every single level, but in this day in age where you can patch everything via digital download, why can't there be more authentic stadiums?
FIFA 16 officially launches in North America on September 22, 2015.
Another veteran is joining the ranks of Street Fighter 5 as the Spanish Ninja himself, Vega, has been revealed as the next member of the playable roster. Attendees at Gamescom will get the first chance to check him out in a new playable build that will be on display at the show. The build will also include the newcomer Necalli that was revealed a few weeks ago.
Vega will be sporting a new appearance and new moves in his latest appearance. Capcom is even giving players an option of two distinct fighting modes, one with a claw and one without. You can get your first glimpse at him in the trailer below and see just how much he has changed. Personally, I love his new attire; it really ties more into his Spanish background than the combat garb he has sported in earlier entries of the franchise.
Welcome to the time machine that is this week! Xbox One owners have quite to exclusive to gloat about this week as Rare Replay releases, offering one of the best deals in the history of gaming. In celebration of Rare’s 30th anniversary, Rare Replay brings together 30 of their most iconic titles for a mere $30. Since the company is now owned by Microsoft, the Xbox One is the only place that you are going to find this package. Our review of the game went live this morning and Nathan really enjoyed the game. If you own a Xbox One, this one is a no-brainer!
What are you picking up?
In case you've been living under a rock, Microsoft announced this cool little thing called backwards compatibility a few months ago at E3. With that, you'll be able to play some of your old Xbox 360 games on your Xbox One. Microsoft's going to really push that and they are starting to with the announcement today regarding Gears of War: Ultimate.
For a limited time, those who purchase Gears of War: Ultimate will get all the Xbox 360 Gears of War games for free. We're talking 1,2,3, and Judgement which will come out this Fall on the Xbox One via the backwards compatibility feature. And yes, you'll get all your saves imported in as well as be able to play with friends online.
The deadline to be able to pick up this deal is December 31, 2015. It's a pretty good deal and definitely fans of the old Gears games will enjoy.
Steam does this a little bit with their voting system on which game will be included in their next flash deal. Sony's going to soon let the public do the talking as they will roll out a feature to let people vote on the free game being offered for the upcoming month.
There were be a list of titles and for the first promotion, the runner up will be offered at a discounted price. No word on if they will keep doing that, but it's nice to see that there will be a voice on what games will be available for free.
More info will be available soon, but for now, Sony just wanted to get the word out there that this will be an upcoming feature.
In addition to this, they put together a really fun series of graphs and charts, showing different statistics about achievements and the players that pursue them. Even if achievements aren't your thing, it's interesting to see the trends involved in everyone's favorite pointless points.
