Doom Eternal – The Ancient Gods: The Slayer Has More Work to Do

QuakeCon is always awesome, but this time around, we get our first teaser for the upcoming Doom Eternal DLC “The Ancient Gods, Part One.” The teaser itself is only 35 seconds long but between it and the words of creative director Hugo Martin, we’ve learned that not everything is right in the Doom Universe. In fact, we might have saved humankind from extinction, but we created even bigger problems. Doom Eternal – The Ancient Gods Part One Teaser https://youtu.be/M5XhV3YarKg Through the events of Doom Eternal, we were warned multiple times not to mess around with super-cosmic forces beyond our kin. But, we didn’t listen, and now there’s a major imbalance in the heavens and it’s up to us to fix it. The Ancient Gods, Part One picks up where Eternal left off, continuing the story we’ve enjoyed so far. As explained by Creative Director, Hugo Martin: “Hell was ripped, Heaven was torn, and the Slayer's legend grew,...

As Concern Over Next-Gen Game Prices Grows, It’ll Be On Gamers to Decide Pricing

With next-gen games expected to bring so much more in terms of graphics and gaming dynamics, they are undoubtedly taking more time and money to develop. But, is there room for new games to climb in price? Well, developers are already starting to answer that question, with 2K Games being the first to raise prices by declaring that NBA 2K21 will cost $69.99 on next-gen platforms. Not long after that announcement, IDG Consulting CEO, Yoshio Osaki, revealed that a number of other publishers are considering doing the same thing. So what’s the deal here? Will next-gen games be more expensive or can we force developers and publishers to retain the current $59.99 price point? Well, the answer to that question depends on who you ask. Cory Barlog, the director of God of War, admits that he’d be fine with increasing retail price, but only under the stipulation that it meant foregoing “cash-grab” microtransactions. That’s a fair point, and I honestly think that I could agree with that too. After...

There’s a Hidden Meaning Behind Ghost of Tsushima’s Weather

Games have had dynamic weather systems in one form or another for years, but Ghost of Tsushima’s is designed to add to the game. How So? Well, the dynamic weather in Ghost of Tsushima occurs in real-time and changes based on the decisions you make. As you – or Jin Sakai, I should say – begin to move down a darker, less-honorable path, the weather too will begin to get darker. This was explained by Creative Director, Nate Fox, in an interview with Gamespot: “The game is definitely scripted to provide more storms as you do things which are extremely ghost driven.” For those of you who haven’t played Ghost of Tsushima quite yet – it launched on July 17, 2020 for the PS4 – the concept of being “ghost driven” refers to the main protagonists honor or lack thereof as the game naturally progresses. Without going into spoilers, Jin starts out as an honorable samurai on a mission to save his homeland from invading Mongols....

Halo Infinite Multiplayer: Free-to-Play and Developed Alongside Pro Gamers

Let’s be honest – if you set PUBG and Fortnite aside, most people are divided in two groups: Halo players and Call of Duty players. And, now that we’ve seen what was essentially a low-res demonstration of Halo Infinite’s campaign, we’re all really itching to see what Halo Infinite Multiplayer is going to bring to the table. Well, if you fall into that group, then we’ve got good news for you. Not only did 343 Industries rely on pro Halo gamers for development advice, but it’s also looking back to what was one of the best Halo multiplayer experiences in the game’s long and rarely tarnished history. Halo Infinite’s Multiplayer will Build off Halo 5’s Multiplayer Element First off, we still don’t get to see what Halo Infinite Multiplayer looks like, but we will get a peek “soon.” However, Phil Spencer has teased a little bit of what we can expect, and it sounds pretty damn good. Speaking with YouTuber...

Valve CEO Says the Xbox Series X is Better Than PS5 on Live TV

This isn’t the first time that we’ve visited the question of whether the Xbox Series X is better than the PlayStation 5 or vice versa. Industry insiders seem to claim that the PS5 is better, and an Epic Game’s boss has even said that the PS5’s SSD is “way ahead” of high-end PCs. At the same time, the Series X has had it’s own early fan club, the latest of which is Valve President and CEO, Gabe Newell. Newell has been stationed in New Zealand for a little while now, and has recently been doing a media tour to thank New Zealanders for letting him hunker down amid the coronavirus pandemic. His most recent stop was a current affairs show known as The Project where the hosts asked him a number of gaming related questions, the most prominent of which was which new console you should buy this holiday season and which is better.

That Big GTA Online Update Will Blend GTA IV and GTA V In Unexpected Ways

This week has been an interesting one for GTA V and GTA Online, the latter of which might as well be its own standalone game at this point. We’re actually here to talk about two big pieces of news, one of which includes the guys that voiced Michael and Franklin in the GTA V single-player mode and the other will take you back to the good old days of GTA IV in the most literal way possible. Michael and Franklin Might Be Coming to GTA Online We’re already well aware that Rockstar has plans for another huge heist in GTA Online – one that’s described as the “biggest ever update for GTA Online.” Now, word has it that the voice actors for Michael and Franklin – Ned Luke and Shawn Darnell Fonteno – will be a part of that big update. It all comes courtesy of a tease during an Instagram Live post earlier this year. Nothing was really set...

The Sony PS5 Could Be Short-Lived Compared to Previous Generations

The PS4 and Xbox One have been around for some seven years, which has become about the standard for gaming consoles. The fifth-gen PS5, however, could have a shorter lifecycle and be replaced with a sixth-gen model – presumably the PlayStation 6 – in as little as five years after its initial launch. That would mean that we could be going through this whole Microsoft vs. Sony charade as soon as 2024 with the next-gen consoles launching as soon as 2025. News that the PS5 could be the shortest generation of the console to date comes via. Digitimes, which quotes a Taiwanese supply chain with inside knowledge. In those five years, it’s reported that Sony is estimated sales topping 120 million units which would be “roughly double” the sales numbers expected for the Xbox Series X. Microsoft’s move, at this point, is still a complete mystery as is what Sony would be able to do to make a PS6 stand out against the PS5. Specs for both Series X...

343 Industries Shoots Down Halo Infinite Multiplayer Rumors

In what seemed like just minutes after Halo Infinite’s first campaign gameplay trailer went live, YouTuber Brad Sams citied an unknown source who claims that Halo Infinite multiplayer wouldn’t be available at launch. As it turns out, Sammy boy probably just wanted some extra video views and subscribers because 343 Industries Community Director, Brian Jarrard, put that rumor down as quickly as it came to life. Nothing to see here folks, this is not true.— Brian Jarrard (@ske7ch) July 24, 2020 Coming at the same time fans were complaining about graphics, this specific rumor seemed extremely odd. Microsoft and 343 Industries said beforehand that the first gameplay showcase would focus on the campaign and that multiplayer would be shown at a future event, long before launch. Then, if you factor in that Halo Infinite is one of primary launch games for the Xbox Series X, the rumor makes even less sense. The only thing that made the rumor even somewhat believable is that it’s...

It Might Not Be Silent Hill, But Hideo Kojima Is Working On a New Horror Game

With all the ups and downs surrounding silent hill and a huge desire for PT – the demo we got instead of a new Silent Hill game – to come to life, we finally have some good news to share. A new report from ComicBook quotes gruesome horror artists (also known as a mangaka) Junji Ito, who says he’s been in talks with Hideo Kojima about a new horror game that he “be me working on.” “I do know director Kojima and we have been in conversation that he may have a horror-based game that he may be doing, and so he has invited me to work on that, but there are no details on it yet” Unfortunately, Ito stopped short of giving any other details, but it seems as if he doesn’t have a lot of details, either. However, you should know that Junji Ito was the artist that Kojima wanted to work with in making PT, but the project was cancelled before he even...

Don’t Believe What You Saw – Halo Infinite Will Look Way Better At Launch

So, you watched the Halo Infinite gameplay trailer and immediate got upset because that didn’t look next-gen, right? Well, you’re not the only one. A lot of fans were up in arms about the overall graphic display, but nobody stopped to think that the game might just be a work in progress, let alone the fact that it wasn’t even streaming in 4k60. And, that was the case, and now Xbox Marketing Boss, Aaron Greenberg, as set out to clear the air a bit in an interview with Inside Gaming, basically admitting that what we saw isn’t fully representative of what the game will look like when it launches with the Xbox Series X. “We're in the middle of a global pandemic. It's July, we're far from holiday . You're seeing a work in progress game. You probably watched the stream in 1080p, maybe, so we have put up a 4K60 on-demand stream. So people, I'd say, go back to look at the game in 4K60. We did that...
