Black Friday 2014 Gaming Bargains - Share Your Deals

Written by HEAVENISHELL on 28 November 2014 at 12:30

It’s that time of year again. When shoppers become crazed loons and Walmart resembles that scene from World War Z. Black Friday. The internet is rife with ridiculous gaming deals, ranging from Steam’s huge Fall Sale to the likes of Amazon knocking down prices on practically brand new titles.

If you want to get the absolute best deals then you’ve got to be on your toes, everyone loves a good flash sale and they’re going to be cropping up all day today, and no doubt running through until Cyber Monday. Unlike those poor mites getting punched for a lamp at Ikea though, you can sit back in the comfort of your own home and pick up some absolute bargains. [More]

Star Citizen Bringing In 1 Million USD A Week, Next Target Is Onboard Pets

Written by Stuart Thomas on 28 November 2014 at 11:30

With a game as ambitious and successful as Star Citizen, it inevitably eventually hits a roadblock. The crowdfunding success keeps smashing through target after target, just recently hitting $63 million funding. The only problem is the team at Cloud Imperium Games needs to keep dreaming up new ideas for where to use all that funding.

When you’ve already got an absolutely massive universe, ship to ship combat, racing, a first-person shooter module, a persistent universe and three fully realised alien languages, there’s only one logical place to go next. Pets. Every worthwhile sci-fi epic has a pet, whether it’s Jones the Cat in Alien or, ummm, Chewbacca in Star Wars, and Star Citizen is no different. [More]

Telltales Game Of Thrones Adventure Series Will Launch On December 2

Written by Neil Soutter on 28 November 2014 at 10:15

Telltale has confirmed that Iron From Ice, the first episode in the Game of Thrones series, will be launching on December 2nd for PC and PlayStation 4, before arriving on the Xbox platforms and iOS devices on the 3rd and 4th respectively.

Details are still pretty scarce on what the 6-part series will actually entail, with no gameplay footage to speak of, but we do know that it’s set between the events following Season 3 of the HBO show and before Season 5. I’m not that far into the TV show yet but it seems a roundabout way of saying it runs parallel to Season 4, focusing on five different members of the House Forrester, featuring many of the likenesses and voice actors from the show itself.

GD Machine 2014 Benchmark Dragon Age: Inquisition GTX 750 Ti i5 4670K

Written by Jon Sutton on 27 November 2014 at 16:30

They say Christmas comes but once a year. Well, life-engulfing single-player BioWare RPGs are even rarer than that - Dragon Age: Inquisition comes with approximately 8000% more beard than Santa Claus could ever dream of having, and in a 1 v 1 faceoff Rudolph would have more than a red nose to worry about in fisticuffs with a Fereldan Frostback. 

In value for money terms single-player BioWare RPGs are unparalleled and Dragon Age: Inquisition is no different, offering up hundreds upon hundreds of hours of gameplay as you and your party of intrepid adventurers ramble across its impressive world. It might be the ultimate worthwhile purchase, but before you commit to that 25GB download and fork over $50 to the folks at EA, you might want to check out how Dragon Age: Inquisition runs on the GD Machine 2014, armed and ready with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti, 8GB RAM, and an Intel i5-4670K processor.  [More]

Far Cry 4 Review : Mountaintop Retreat

Written by Jon Sutton on 27 November 2014 at 15:15

In the pantheon of gaming the Far Cry series has slowly, but extremely steadily, become a big deal. It’s been a couple of years now since Far Cry 3 and in Far Cry 4 Ubisoft is delivering a title bigger and better than any in the series that has preceded it. Unlike previous games in the franchise Far Cry 4 isn’t exactly breaking new ground, it’s a revision of the Far Cry 3 formula but blown up to ridiculous proportions. No longer confined to an island paradise, you’re free to roam the slopes of the Himalayan mountains, from its low-lying woodland all the way to its snow-capped peaks.


Exo Zombies Begins Its Slow March Into Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare In Early 2015 - Trailer

Written by Jon Sutton on 27 November 2014 at 14:00

Quelle surprise, Activision has announced the Exo Zombies survival co-op mode, which is coming to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare early next year as part of its Havoc DLC pack. It’s become somewhat of a tradition for Treyarch’s Call of Duty outings at least to incorporate some form of shambling undead, but now Advanced Warfare dev Sledgehammer’s getting in on the action too.

The Exo Suit Zombie Survival trailer has also been released, which will be familiar to those hardcore few who made it all the way to end of Exo Survival’s final Riot level in Advanced Warfare. Sledgehammer’s twist on the zed-blasting formula is the unique Exo Suit abilities new to CoD: AW, allowing players to perform abilities such as ground slams to eviscerate swathes of the undead.

Metal Gear Online To Be Unveiled Next Week

Written by Stuart Thomas on 27 November 2014 at 12:45

Metal Gear Online is set to make a return next year, with the game's director Hideo Kojima primed to premiere the online component at next week’s Video Game Awards. Show host Geoff Keighley revealed the surprise via Twitter this morning, saying "Next Friday night I'm honored Hideo Kojima will join us at the game awards to world premiere Metal Gear Online.”

The online component originally surfaced alongside Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence on PlayStation 2, before its first fully fledged outing packaged with PlayStation 3 exclusive Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. In it up to 16 players could duke it out in stealth-based online battles, upgrading the characters and gear. It went offline back in June 2012, but it’s set to be given a new lease of life, presumably as a pack-in with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. [More]

DayZ Will Not Launch Until First Half Of 2016, Road To Release Revealed

Written by Neil Soutter on 27 November 2014 at 11:30

DayZ, the poster boy for Early Access, will not be finished until at least the first half of 2016, developer Bohemia Interactive has revealed. The online zombie survival game originally released at the tail-end of last year on Steam Early Access, but it could be as much three years beyond that until the final release hits store shelves.

Bohemia Interactive made the revelation when it was revealing its plans for 2015 and beyond, also disclosing that DayZ would be leaving alpha testing in the final quarter of 2015. Between now and then, the plan is for the price to gradually rise from its current $30 / £23 price point up to $50 on launch day. [More]

Ubisoft Cancels Assassins Creed Unity Season Pass And Offers Free Game

Written by Jon Sutton on 27 November 2014 at 10:15

In a bizarre turn of events Ubisoft has announced that it has cancelled Assassin’s Creed Unity’s Season Pass, citing the technical problems plaguing its open-world stab-em-up as the key contributing factor.

Those who’ve already paid out for an Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass, or purchased one of the special editions that came bundled with the content, will be offered a ‘free’ game game from a selection including the likes of The Crew, Far Cry 4 and Watch Dogs. [More]
