We're gonna need a bigger boat in Battlefield 4

by: John - - Add a Comment

There were rumors that a Megalodon was hiding around in Battlefield 4. Well, it was a rumor til recently. With the release of Naval Strike DLC, the enormous shark is now a reality.

In the video below, you can see the giant shark come out of the water and lay waste to everyone in the water. It looks mighty impressive jumping out of the water. Now, we'll have to see if you can take out the Jaws wannabe.

Thanks Kotaku.

Thursday means it is time to check in with Joe Jewett down in the Brewery District to run down this week's biggest releases. We had to rush through things a bit today in order to cram in all three games that I wanted to talk about: MLB 14 The show, The Elder Scrolls Online, and Goat Simulator.

by: Jeremy - - Add a Comment

This is definitely a week for PC gamers as one of the most anticipated MMORPG games in history is finally launching. No more Oblivion; no more Skyrim; the Elder Scrolls are now online! Alternatively, if questing isn’t your thing, you could always turn to life as a goat in Goat Simulator. Seriously, how do you pick between these two?

Alien: Isolation gets a release date

by: Sam - - Add a Comment

SEGA has officially announced the release date for their upcoming survival horror shooter Alien: Isolation. The game will be released globally for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 7th. The game's developer Creative Assembly wants the game to feel more like the Alien movies than previous games have, where the player actually fears the Xenomorphs rather than just constantly facing them in head to head combat.  

I avoided Aliens: Colonial Marines after hearing all of the negative press around that game, but I enjoy survival horror games from time to time. If there isn't much else out around the time Isolation releases maybe I will check it out.

PlayStation Plus April rewards include Mercenary Kings and Batman: Arkham City

by: Sam - - Add a Comment

For members of the PlayStation Plus service each months reward announcement must be some kind of miniature celebration. Sony proves month after month that they have the best reward service around, and this month is no different. The star of this months line-up is the brand new indie game Mercenary Kings for the PS4, developed by Tribute Games. This game hasn't even released on PS4 yet, meaning that PS4 owners are pretty much getting a brand new game. PS3 owners will be able to download Batman: Arkham City, Stealth Inc. A Clone in the Dark, and Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse. Vita owners get Velocity Ultra and Pixeljunk Monsters Ultimate HD. If you own all three systems you will be getting six, count em six! games things month. 

I have yet to join the PS+ master race, but that free copy of Mercenary Kings is calling my name. I can't deny how good this service is becoming, so I guess its about time I join up.

Start your day off right with seven new screenshots from Batman:Arkham Knight

by: Chuck - - Add a Comment

So far Batman:Arkham Knight is looking pretty good so far and the seven new screenshots that were released today are definitely going to start getting fans of the series pumped up for the games release later this year.

The new screenshots include more pictures of Batman as well as a few renders of Arkham Knight, a new entry into Batman's rogue gallery.  They also include a new picture of the Batmobile which will be drivable for the first time in the franchise.  


El Presidente wants to know why the rum is all gone

by: Nathaniel - - Add a Comment

I'm calling this one the "mixed metaphors" Tropico 5 trailer (it's certainly better than the #brbgonnavomitforever trailer from a few months ago).

In this one, El Presidente is pirate captain Jack Sparrow, or at least it's a visual reference to the most famous character from a moderately successful, but ultimately forgettable series of movies based on an amusement park ride.

Man, sometimes videogame trailers are weird.  

Anyway, if you want to learn more, follow the jump.  Tropico 5 is set for release on the Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and Linux early this summer - and then later this year on the PS4.

Wolfenstein: The New Order's release date changed for the better

by: John - - Add a Comment

Normally, games delay their launch dates but this isn't the case for Wolfenstein: The New Order. Bethesda has announced that the game is being released two days earlier and will be globally launched on that day.

Originally launching on May 22nd in the United States and May 23rd in Europe, the game is now set for May 20th. And remember, if you pre-order the game, you get into the beta for the new DOOM game coming out.

So score one for the folks at Bethesda and MachineGames. Everyone will be able to kill Nazis sooner rather than later. The game is set to hit all platforms that are not from Nintendo in two months time.

Battlefield 4: Naval Strike DLC delayed on the PC

by: John - - Add a Comment

I hope you weren't interested in playing the newest Battlefield 4 DLC, Naval Strike on the PC because you're going to have to wait a bit. The DLC has been delayed without word on when it will be released.

Naval Strike introduces four new maps and an emphasis on sea battles. Premium members were suppose to get access to it today. Unless you are playing on the console though, you won't be trying out the new maps, weapons, or vehicles that come with the DLC.

No word on what is causing the delay other than it's an issue they found with the DLC. I'm going to guess that this bug is bigger than the normal ones they let through and try to patch up later on. Because we know, anytime DICE releases an update or a DLC, the inevitable number of bugs comes along with it.

Because it's there: Far Cry 4 rumored to be set in the mighty Himalayas

by: Nathaniel - - Add a Comment

For me, Far Cry 3 set the standard for open-world first person shooters and was far and away my favorite game of 2012. A big reason for that was its South Pacific islands and jungle setting - the second time the series has been set on and around a tropical island.  Between those we got the African savanna.  For Far Cry 4, if the now widely-reported rumors are to be believed, the Yeti will be far more at home than Jason Brody because the rumored location for Far Cry 4 is the Himalayan mountain range.

It makes perfect sense since it's another remote and sometimes war-torn region of the world replete with it's own native myths and legends.

It also has elephants.  The rumors go on to state that elephants will be rideable.  Not exactly what I'd call "fast-travel" but it is maybe "awesome-travel."  

I just have one word for Ubisoft: Yeti.  I love those stories and legends that revolve around Bigfoot and the Yeti and if Ubisoft doesn't give us at least one Yeti encounter - even one brought on by the liberal use of ingested "chemicals" - I will be very disappointed.  

Right now, the word is that Far Cry 4 will be released during the first half of next year for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

First look at Assassin's Creed Unity

by: John - - Add a Comment

The next game in the Assassin's Creed series, Assassin's Creed Unity has been in development for three years now and today, Ubisoft is letting folks see an early alpha of the game. The footage is rather short, but gives you a nice view of the environment and the new assassin.

The background is the French Revolution and the game is set for release this year on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The footage does look pretty nice and I'm sure we'll hear more about the game very soon. E3 would be a ripe time to talk about it, I think.

Geralt is back in The Witcher: House of Glass

by: Nathaniel - - Add a Comment

Exciting news, right?  Geralt of Rivia is one of the most interesting and unique characters in gaming today.  That probably stems from his previous existence as a book character in The Witcher novels that actually existed before the games.  

There's one catch thought, and that is reading.  You see, The Witcher: House of Glass is another entry into Dark Horse Comics's ever-expanding pantheon of graphic novel accompaniments to popular videogame series. You can read about it here.  You can also find it on iTunes and Google Play using their respective apps (iTunes, Google Play).  

The Witcher: House of Glass is out now.  For more details, follow the jump.  Also make sure you check out the first four panels of The Witcher: House of Glass included beneath the trailer.
