AMAZING NEWS! On the 30th April, Ubisoft released the trailer for Assassin's Creed: Valhalla that is due to be released in October 2020. The news has brought fans from all over the globe to come together and discuss the upcoming game; what we want, what our first impressions are and what we know so far...so what do we know so far?
Google Stadia is one of a number of Cloud-based gaming services on the market that's competing for a piece of what's perceived to be a growing demographic of the video game market space. They've decided to run a promotion offering two complementary months of their Stadia Pro service in an attempt to attract increased interest to the platform. It's a pretty interesting strategy for Google, given the mixed early reviews for the game service in general. The initial release of the service last year met with both excitement, and mixed reviews upon launch.
Almost two years after its release in 2018, God of War becomes a hot topic one more time with the recent announcement of the new PS5 release this year 2020. Lots of GoW fans hope Santa Monica Studio will surprise them with a new sequel of Kratos in the Norse world.
I'm stuck in the house, nothing to do, slowly going mad from essays when Warframe's first major event of 2020 arrives! The New War begins as the Sentient launch fleet upon fleet of Murex warships towards the Earth! And it's up to us (and Little Duck, apparently?) to fight them off before the Sentient attack the Earth! It's Operation: Scarlet Spear!
Maybe it’s a “not-so-fun fact,” especially after The Creative Assembly further proved that there is still life in Ridley Scott’s tired cinematic franchise with Alien: Isolation. In a Twitter exchange, former Epic alum Cliff Bleszinski and 3D Realms vice president Frederik Schreiber both revealed how the acquisition of 20th Century Fox devoured two new Alien titles.
It’s been over 7 years since Diablo III graced our consoles – and back in November we finally received the news that we’ve been waiting for. Blizzcon 2019 revealed rumours of a Diablo IV being produced to be true – and here is everything we know about it so far.
We may not have gotten Doom: Eternal this year, but Bethesda is hoping to soften that blow with news of DLC… for the Doom and Doom 2 console ports. Revealed during Bethesda’s Doom 26th anniversary livestream, the original two Doom games will be receiving DLC that will expand the user experience and serve as a bit of nostalgia for those that grew up with the series.
Hey, remember that multiplayer Resident Evil game you weren’t sure you wanted to buy? Well, Capcom knew you’d be at an impasse and decided to make the decision for you - by bundling it with Resident Evil 3, scheduled to release on April 3, 2020. Wait, what’s that? A Resident Evil 3 remake, you ask? Yes, all of that speculation we’ve been doing for the past week and a half based on leaks was accurate - we are getting that remake to Resident Evil 3 we’ve been pining for.
Finally! The day has arrived that the final order is now out and playable, some having to wait for this video game to come out for at least a year, if not maybe more. I do not consider myself a huge gamer, but this Star Wars video game has reached new levels of awesomeness that I had to write about it. I’m a big Star Wars fan myself. I’ve seen all the movies more than once, but it was thanks to my older sister’s obsession with the franchise.
Well, as you may already know, my dream since childhood was to make video games. And now that I'm studying to get a Bachelor's degree in Games at the University of Utah, I figured, maybe it's time to finally take the time to make my first official game. So, here's an announcement for it:
As a gamer, I'm always looking for new things to check out, explore, etc. E3 normally one of those events that pique that curiosity for me every year. There's always a presentation that just has that 'it' factor going for it, whether it's a game, or a console release, or maybe another console competitor altogether. This year, Google decided to make themselves known by unveiling a truly ambitious vision for the future of gaming with the Google Stadia reveal. Console-free, Cloud-based gaming isn't a new idea. Back in the day, a service called OnLive had essentially the same kind of dream; before Google even thought about stepping out into these cloud gaming streets, the folks at OnLive had the bright idea to stream games of all types for a subscription price. Of course, this was in the very infancy of cloud computing, so the dream of cloud gaming was still kind of like an unexplored country of sorts. OnLive's time in the spotlight was short-lived, as the company was eventually bought out by Sony entertainment, but their early foray into the promise of cloud gaming was a glimpse into a truly different direction for gaming. Fast forward to over a decade later. We're seeing a re-birth to the concept of truly console-free gaming (and some say the return of the spirit of OnLive) with Google's announcement of their ambitious vision for gaming with Google Stadia. Google had already been seriously exploring the idea of streaming and containing games within their cloud infrastructure with the beta program Google Stream prior to Stadia's introduction at E3.
