So Mass Effect: Andromeda came out earlier this year, and it was for all intensive purposes… underwhelming. How could a game with this kind of pedigree miss the mark so badly? How did the animation end up the way it did? Our Friends over at Kotaku have an absolutely brilliant article answering exactly those questions. Head over and have a read..

UBISOFT ANNOUNCES FAR CRY 5 IS COMING TO AMERICA’S HEARTLAND ON FEBRUARY 27, 2018
Today, Ubisoft announced that gamers will experience the chaos, unpredictability and ferociousness of the Far Cry franchise with Far Cry 5 on PlayStation 4, the Xbox One family of devices, including Project Scorpio, and Windows PC. Set in America for the first time, in Montana, players will have total freedom to navigate this serene-looking yet deeply twisted world solo or entirely in two-player co-op as they fight for survival and freedom, when the game releases on February 27, 2018. Development for Far Cry 5 is being led by Ubisoft Montreal.
As the new junior deputy of fictional Hope County, Montana, players will find that their arrival accelerates a years-long silent coup by a fanatical doomsday cult, the Project at Eden’s Gate, igniting a violent takeover of the county. Caught off guard and drawn into a power struggle, players must disrupt the carefully laid plans of the Project at Eden’s Gate and fan the fires of resistance to help liberate the Hope County community and themselves.
Under siege and cut off from the rest of the world, players will join forces with residents of Hope County and form the Resistance. The fight against the cult will take players to unique locations throughout Hope County that provide different gameplay experiences. During their journey, players can fly planes to engage cult forces in aerial dogfights across Big Sky Country. While tracking down cult members and gathering resources for survival across farmland, forests, mountains and rivers, players can get behind the wheel of iconic American muscle cars, big rigs, ATVs and boats. Vehicles also provide refuge when under attack by animals or as a way to quickly escape when things don’t go as planned.
To take down the cult, players will need to utilize any and all weapons at their disposal, including ranged weapons such as guns and grenades and melee weapons like a sledgehammer or baseball bat. Additionally, players can recruit Guns for Hire from a large cast of characters, or even Fangs for Hire, specialized animals like bears and cougars to complement players’ playstyles whether they’re going in stealthily or forcefully. How players approach each situation and the chaos they create in Far Cry 5 is up to them. Far Cry 5 will also see the return of the map editor, giving players the opportunity to create and play an infinite amount of new playgrounds. The map editor will include new features that add a new dimension to the content created by fans, with more details coming soon.
Evolve, is the 4 vs 1 game from Turtle Rock Studios that was released last year to much excitement. Unfortunately that excitement quickly turned sour due to the terrible DLC and micro-transaction strategy. Well we are happy to announce that they have thought long and hard about this and decided to essentially reboot the whole game in what they are calling Evolve Stage 2.
What that means for you and I friends, is that starting today, you can go download Evolve Stage 2 for free on Steam for PC. They have announced a plan for the people that have already bought the game in what they are calling the “founders” so that they won’t be left out in the cold, going as far as to say everything that they have unlocked will be available to them in the “new” game as well as some ongoing bonuses as well. Founders can expect such goodies as:
3,000 Silver Keys, all past and future Adaptations for previously owned Hunters and Monsters, dozens of Weapon Skins, and four unique, animated Founder badges.
If you owned any Hunters, Monsters, or Skins previously, those will be carried over to Evolve Stage 2.
In future, there will be new, exclusive badges, skins and assorted cosmetics for Founders.
Evolve’s very large cast of characters and cosmetics will all be unlockable in Stage 2 by using an in-game currency called Silver Keys, earned by playing. There’s no mention yet of whether you’ll be able to pay cash, although I am sure that they will be mentioning something about it soon.
They also announced that not only are they going free to play, they are also overhauling the entire game, they gave us a small taste of the changes that we can expect to see when logging in now
Major changes include a renewed focus on the signature 4v1 Hunt mode, with rejigged classes to lighten the load for inexperienced Medics and Trappers:
The MOBILE ARENA is now a shared ability that always centers on the Monster, and all four hunter classes have been redesigned to be more easily accessible and have better team synergy even when you’re not playing with friends.
TRAPPER – With the mobile arena a shared ability, all Trapper class hunters now come equipped with a PLANET SCANNER ability that tells the hunters generally which direction the monster is located within the map. Trappers also get a speed boost when activating the ability to help them close the distance and Dome the Monster.
MEDIC – All Hunter classes now have passive health regeneration that automatically heals players when they aren’t taking damage.
SUPPORT – All Support class hunters now have a SHIELD BURST ability that automatically charges the shields of teammates that are close enough to the Support.
All Assault class hunters now have a DEFENSE MATRIX ability that replaces the personal shield’s invulnerability and instead provides damage reduction to the Assault character.
MONSTER – All Monsters now have more health and start with enough skill points to activate all four abilities at the start of a match. Alongside new found power and speed, the Monsters are back to terrorize Shear.
VISUAL FX and UI have been redesigned to provide a cleaner, more easily understandable experience for players of all skill levels.
MAPS have been redesigned specifically for HUNT using countless hours of gameplay data and player feedback since launch, resulting in maps that create consistently fair fights for Hunters and Monsters.
If you want to see what this game is about, or maybe what has changed, you can download the new Stage 2 version starting right now on Steam.

Previously Pokemon Go was in closed beta, but that my friends is finally over. Pokemon Go has finally been released on the Google Play Store for Android users, and has been released on the App store in Australia and New Zealand (at least for right now) on iOS, no word yet on when they are releasing in other territories yet.
Pokemon Go is an AR (Augmented Reality) game that allows players to see and trap Pokemon by using the app and camera when they are out and walking around so that they can battle them later. If this sounds like something up your alley, then take a look at the video below and go download the app!
