Oddworld: Abes Oddysee New n Tasty Review : Its An Odd World After All

Written by Jon Sutton on 31 July 2014 at 16:16

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty is such a rare beast in today’s age of remasters, reboots, and HD-ified wallet gouging remakes. It’s actually needed and it actually works. Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee was an aging game in dire need of a reworking, a reworking that could bring it to a whole new generation of fans. Developer Just Add Water has really gone back to the drawing board here, rebuilding Oddworld from the ground up.

The Sims 4 Trailer Wears Its Heart On Its Sleeve

Written by Neil Soutter on 31 July 2014 at 15:15

Next time you’re indiscriminately drowning your sims in your swimming pool, it might do you well to remember that those little sims have feelings to. Or at least that’s what EA and Maxis would have us believe, and they’ve put out a new trailer for The Sims 4 to prove it.

The Sims 4’s big new feature that Maxis is trumpeting is the thoughts and feelings of your little sims, who’ve been imbued with human-like characteristics. While all your sims previously seemed bothered about was wetting themselves, now they’ll be overjoyed, tempestuous, flustered, or even downright miserable.  [More]

F1 2014 of course coincides with some of the most ground-breaking changes to have happened in Formula 1 history, introducing the new aerodynamic regulations and the turbocharge power units.

Watch Dogs DLC Set In Camden, New Jersey Teased By Ubisoft

Written by Stuart Thomas on 31 July 2014 at 10:13

Watch Dogs is getting its first major piece of downloadable content later in the Fall, and the action’s moving out of Chicago to the city of Camden, New Jersey. This locale was evidently chosen because it had the highest crime rate in the US in 2012, making it ripe for Aiden Pearce to flex his hacking skills.

The official Watch Dogs Twitter account tweeted out a cryptic message alluding to the possibility of more content coming to Watch Dogs later this year, something which it later confirmed… [More]

EA Announces All Access Subscription Gaming Pass For Xbox One

Written by Stuart Thomas on 30 July 2014 at 15:10

EA has unveiled a new subscription gaming service for Xbox One, dubbed EA Access. Clearly inspired by the success of Microsoft’s Games with Gold program and Sony’s PlayStation Plus service, EA Access will be a subscription service costing $5 a month that will gain access to some of the publisher’s biggest games.

When the service arrives Xbox One owners will get unlimited access to Battlefield 4, Peggle 2, FIFA 14, and Madden NFL 25, as well as discounts on digital content and access to new games five days before release. It’s currently unclear whether EA intends to roll this service out to PC gamers, although Sony has gone on record to claim it isn't allowing the service on PlayStation 4 as it doesn’t represent “good value...” [More]
