Murdered: Soul Suspect Confirmed for Xbox One and PS4

murdered-soul-suspect-7

Murdered: Soul Suspect publisher Square Enix have confirmed today that it will be coming to both the Xbox One and the PS4. Originally when it was announced, it was coming for Xbox 30, PC, and PS3, but now we know that it is officially coming to the two new consoles alongside the current ones, sometime in June 2014.

Square Enix stated in a statement that “The new console versions will offer increased visual fidelity via native 1080p output. Elements such as subsurface scattering and an increased particle count will depict an even more immersive ghost world and cast as players guide slain Salem detective Ronan O’Connor on a quest to find his killer and escape the limbo-like world of Dusk.”

Along with these announcements they also sent this new gameplay/story trailer showing off a little bit more of just what exactly Murdered: Soul Suspect is exactly, even though many people in the gaming press are already calling it “LA Noire with Ghosts” which if it actually is that….. I think that would be pretty damn sweet.


Murdered: Soul Suspect is slated for release sometime in June 2014.

Thief 101, New Thief Gameplay Trailer

Thief-Game-Wallpaper-HD

So this very cool video landed today, showcasing the upcoming Thief game by Eidos Montreal. In this video we get a taste for the new game, it is 6 minutes of show off really, all the ways you can play and just hinting a little bit about what this game may be about. This game has had an interesting run leading up to release and I will be very curious to see how it turns out. If this video is anything to go by though, this is looking like a VERY good game. I keep getting a very big Dishonored vibe from this new Thief; which on one hand makes me excited (Dishonored is amazing, if you haven’t played it, GO NOW and do so)  but on the other hand make me also slightly concerned, as I want this new Thief game to be its own game, not a copy of something that I have already played. Take a look below at this new trailer and feel free to share with us what your thoughts on this new Thief game are.


Thief is being released on Feb 25, 2014 for the Xbox 360, PC, PS4, Xbox One and PS3.

As a thank you for players patience the developer announced today on their blog that February will be Battlefield 4 Player Appreciation Month. Dice will be running everything from double XP weekends, FREE equipment unlocks and FREE battlepacks everyday you log in during the month long event.

Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Gameplay Trailer and Screens Here

Middle-Earth-Shadow-Of-Mordor-2014-Game

Monolith Productions and WB Games, finally released some game-play footage for their new Lord of the Rings based game, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor. This is looking kind of like a cross between Batman Arkham Asylum and Assasins Creed, but in the Lord of the Rings universe. I highly recommend taking a look at the new gameplay walk-through video below, as it is looking like a really cool idea.


With Monolith behind the production I have very high hopes for this game, Monolith has created some of my favorite games( Shogo M.A.D, No One Lives Forever, F.E.A.R, and Alien VS Predator 2), and they always seem to create very polished, well playing games. I will be keeping a close eye on this one, but for now, take a look at these screenshots below.

No word on a release date yet, but it is in production for the Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. More info can be found Here.

Alien: Isolation Officially Announced, Looking To Head Back To The Survival Horror Roots

Alien Isolation gorsel

So it is no secret that the last Alien game, Aliens: Colonial Marines was not very good, but it appears that Sega wants to try again. This time they have decided to go in a different direction, and they are hoping to scare the pants off you in this upcoming survival horror game.

According to the press release, Alien: Isolation is set 15 years after the events of Alien and you play as Ripley’s daughter, Amanda, as she searches for the truth behind her mother’s disappearance. Going to a survival horror game should bring back more of  the feeling from the movie, and I am hoping that it will make for a much better game then the last one.

You can check out the release trailer for Alien: Isolation below.


Alien: Isolation is slated to be released sometime in Fall 2014 for the PC, Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360 and PS3.  You can find out more from their Website.

Sony Announces Playstation Now, Will Be Streaming Playstation Games To Your PS3, PS4, Tablet and Smartphone Soon.

PlayStation-Now

Today at CES (the Consumer Electronics Show), Sony announced how they are planning to utilize the cloud streaming service Gaikai that they purchased previously. They will be creating what they are calling Playstation Now, and it will allow streaming of Playstation games across all sorts of mediums, starting obviously with the PS3, Vita and PS4 game systems, but also going on to be used on tablets, smartphones and even Sony’s own line of Bravia TV’s. This new game streaming will be tied in with Sony’s new IPTV Service that they announced at CES as well

Sony has stated that this new streaming service will be either rental or subscription based and that PSN features like trophies, online multiplayer and messages will be making their way to it as well, even when you are on the go. This is starting to look like a very promising idea from Sony and would allow PS4 users access to the back catalog of PS3 games that they may have missed. The idea that this may end up being a “Netflix” for games is a very interesting idea, especially when we start talking about streaming and playing these games with just a Bravia TV.

Sony has announced that they will be having a PS3 beta for this service towards the end of January, followed by a larger US rollout in the summer. If you are interested in being a part of the beta, you can head over to Sony’s website Here and signup for more info.

We will be keeping an eye on this story, but so far, this is looking like a very promising idea from Sony and personally, I am very excited to see how this turns out.

John Carmack, Creator of Doom, Officially Leaves id Software

john carmack2

Today it was announced that Doom Creator and long time Uber Programmer, John Carmack has Officially left id Software. In an official statement, id’s studio director Tim Willits told IGN:

John Carmack, who has become interested in focusing on things other than game development at id, has resigned from the studio. John’s work on id Tech 5 and the technology for the current development work at id is complete, and his departure will not affect any current projects. We are fortunate to have a brilliant group of programmers at id who worked with John and will carry on id’s tradition of making great games with cutting-edge technology. As colleagues of John for many years, we wish him well

Carmack, who was actually one of the co-founders of id, had recently joined Oculus as the CTO, but had remained at id in some capacity. Now this appears to be the end of that, and we appear to be seeing Carmack going away from games and developing more tech in the Oculus.

We wish him the best at Oculus, and can’t wait to see the exciting things that will be coming from that relationship.
