Tony Hawk: Pro Skater 5 Announced

tonyhawk PS5-4

It has been more then a decade since we have seen a new Pro Skater, but it looks like Activision has decided it is time. They have announced the new Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, PS3 as well as Xbox 360.

Robomodo, the developer of the previous Tony Hawk: Ride, Shred and Pro Skater HD is at the helm, and they are claiming that they are heading back to the roots of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater series in this, which mean missions, power-ups and all sorts of ridiculousness.

They are hoping to create a seamless online world were you can be online and playing with friends and then be offline and have the transition be invisible to the user. They are also saying that players will be able to create and design their own skate parks and share them online.

Activision has come out and said that the game will be 20$ cheaper on Xbox 360 and PS3, and that some of the “seamless” online play may not make it onto those platforms.

No release date has been announced yet

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.

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.

codg

Activision this morning announced, that Call of Duty: Ghosts has sold more then $1 Billion into retail on the first day of release. Since being released yesterday, it has moved into the #1 spot on Xbox Live, according to Microsoft. Activision has also stated that the average play session on Xbox 360 has been longer on Ghosts then either Black Ops II or Modern Warfare 3 during the same time period. They also went on to state that Call of Duty: Ghosts is Gamestop’s Most preordered Next Gen Title, and that Activision saw more then 15,000 midnight launch events around the world for the title. The Full press release is below.

SANTA MONICA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), announced today that the company sold more than $1 billion of Call of Duty®: Ghosts into retail stores worldwide as of day one.

Call of Duty is by far the largest console franchise of this generation,” said Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. “More people have played Call of Duty this year than ever before, logging four billion hours of gameplay. And in the last 12 months, Call of Duty®: Black Ops II, including its digital content, generated more revenues than any other console game ever has in a single year. Although it is too early to assess sell-through for Call of Duty: Ghosts, it’s launching at a time when the franchise has never been more popular.”

Millions of people are already playing Call of Duty: Ghosts online. Since its release yesterday, Call of Duty:Ghosts has moved to the #1 spot as the most played game on Xbox Live, according to Microsoft. Additionally, Activision confirmed that on the Xbox 360 videogames and entertainment system from Microsoft, average player sessions for Ghosts have been longer than either Black Ops II or Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3, during the same time period.

Call of Duty: Ghosts launched at 15,000 midnight openings around the world. Fans around the world shared their excitement in social media, with Call of Duty-related terms trending an astounding 20 times globally on Twitter in the last 24 hours.

Ghosts is an amazing game which ushers in the next generation of Call of Duty. The team at Infinity Ward has delivered yet another epic thrill ride in the campaign, and what I think is our best multiplayer game yet,” said Eric Hirshberg, CEO of Activision Publishing. “This is the must have launch title for the next generation of consoles, and we expect Call of Duty: Ghosts to be the most successful launch title for the Xbox One and PS4 by a wide margin. In fact, according to GameStop, Call of Duty: Ghosts is their most pre-reserved next gen title.”

Call of Duty: Ghosts is out now across PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and I even saw it for sale for the PS4 when I was in the store yesterday.
