Up For Debate - Favourite PC Gaming Controller

Written by Joffy S on 25 January 2015 at 16:00

Up until about a year ago the issue of which controller to use was a one-stop shop - the Xbox 360 controller. We spent decades making use of assorted third-party tat for years, and then Microsoft delivered one of the ultimate PC gaming controllers in the form of the Xbox 360 gamepad. Finally we had a universal gamepad that was being accepted in games across the board, with appropriate on-screen button prompts.

The PlayStation 3 controller was also made compatible with PCs in a roundabout way, but the support was never there for it on a large scale. Fast forward a few years to now though, and we’ve got even more choice when it comes to which PC gamepad to use. Microsoft updated its classic controller and brought us the PC-compatible Xbox One gamepad, while Sony pulled a surprise out of the bag with the DualShock 4, completely annihilating its predecessor in pretty much every respect.

Amazon Listing Reveals Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered

Written by Stuart Thomas on 25 January 2015 at 13:15

Quantic Dreams' cult-classic adventure title Indigo Prophecy looks set for a return this week in a remastered form if a newly cropped up Amazon listing is anything to go by. The listing arrives just days after a teaser site appeared at achillingfeeling.com, indicating more was to come from the series in just a matter of days.

Indigo Prophecy, or Fahrenheit as it’s known outside North America, is an adventure game from Quantic Dream, the same team that brought us Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. It was one of the first titles to popularise 3D cinematic adventures and featured branching dialogue with multiple endings, and it looks like we’re going to be getting the most definitive version yet later this week.

Cyberpunk 2077 Still In The Works But The Priority Now Is The Witcher 3 Confirms CDPR

Written by Neil Soutter on 25 January 2015 at 09:00

It’s been eerily quiet on Cyberpunk 2077 front as  developer CD Projekt RED’s been busy going full steam ahead with The Witcher 3. Since its announcement back in 2012 we’ve seen precious little of Cyberpunk 2077 save for some concept art, with no gameplay footage to speak of whatsoever, but the Polish outfit has confirmed that work on the sci-fi RPG is still ongoing.

"The first rule of Cyberpunk 2077 is that we don't talk about Cyberpunk 2077," said CD Projekt RED’s head of marketing and public relations, Michał Platkow - Gilewski, in an interview. [More]

Game Debate Exclusive - Chainsaw Warrior: Lords Of The Night Interview

Written by Joffy S on 24 January 2015 at 16:00

When the original Chainsaw Warrior arrived back in October 2013 it was the embodiment of what makes Games Workshop titles so great. The timeless board game updated for PC and mobile play was equal parts nail-bitingly tense, resolutely old-school, and tremendously punishing.

Those seeking a challenge could do no wrong than stepping into the shoes of the titular Chainsaw Warrior, but now developer Auroch Digital is back for a second rev of the chainsaw. Chainsaw Warrior: Lords of the Night promises to build on the success of the original, taking it in an all-new direction that's only possible in a digital format. We got a chance to have a chat with Auroch's Game Designer, Steve Martin to get the lowdown on what we can expect from the next blood-spattered romp.  [More]

blackguards 2 Review : Hell Hath No Fury...

Written by Stuart Thomas on 24 January 2015 at 14:00

I like the voice actors they've used in the Blackguards series. They bring a true layer of professionalism and character to the dialogue and bring the characters to life. I liked them in the original Blackguards and I continue to like them in Blackguards 2. Great job, dudes!

That said, I don't like the overly simplified world map that is little more than a simplistic web of adventure sites, some of which are technically towns - which means little more than a couple of weapons shops and very occasionally a chance for another combat encounter. The simplicity of Blackguards 2 is one of the things I appreciate about it, but it also feels like there was room for more development outside of combat. Just the same as I thought about Blackguards.

Trials Fusion Has Multiplayer Modes Added Via Update At Long Last

Written by Neil Soutter on 24 January 2015 at 12:00

I get the feeling that Ubisoft has had a single RedLynx programmer squirreled away in some remote location, working solo on the Trials Fusion multiplayer portion which was expected to be available at launch. It’s now close to a year since Trials Fusion graced us with one of the most heinous game soundtracks of all time, but at long last the multiplayer component is arriving courtesy of update 4.

The multiplayer mode for Trials Fusion has been added for all platforms, so that includes PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360, and comes with three unique game modes; Online X-Supercross, Private Game, and Private Game with spectator. [More]

Telltale Reveals Trailer And Launch Date For Game Of Thrones Episode 2: The Lost Lords

Written by Stuart Thomas on 24 January 2015 at 10:00

Telltale Games and HBO have revealed the second part of its episodic Game of Thrones series is due to arrive in February. Game of Thrones: Episode 2 - The Lost Lords will be arriving on February 3rd for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Mac, before following up a day later on Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

There isn't a huge amount given away in the trailer, which in fact has a whole stack of footage from the first episode, but The Lost Lords looks to be every bit as miserable as we've come to expect from George R. R. Martin's fantastical tales. It goes without saying though that if you haven't got round to the first episode just yet, then this going to be a pretty spoilerific experience.  [More]
