Minimur, WTH Happened This Week? CoD BO3 PS4 Unboxing, How Xbox Back-Compat Works & Fallout 3 vs 4 Pics!
Hi all, this week we’ve got an unboxing from Playstation Access, aonther new PS4 advert, some comparison shots of Fallout 3/4 and a few other nice bits! Take a read!
Alone With You – Spring 2016
Developer Benjamin Rivers (Home) put a post on the US PS Blog to announce Alone With You, a new game with a similar theme to the previous game, but more of a romance theme Benjamin describes…
Alone With You is a single-player, sci-fi adventure game for PS4 and PS Vita, and it has a pretty unique romance element.
Watch the brand-new gameplay trailer and you’ll spot a few things — another of sound designer Ivor Stines’ groovy in-game tunes, and the mood-setting new level art by background artist Gavin McCarthy. You’ll also see what you’ll be doing throughout the game’s 12+ missions: exploring ruined environments of your failed colony, interacting with the world to solve puzzles and discover information, and scanning important items that your AI needs.
This game seems very explorative and deep, I like these sorts of games but I’m not really too much of a fan of the art style, I’ll have to wait to see more about it before I decided whether I should get it or not!
So, with the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Playstation Access have one of the ltd edition bundles, and have made an unboxing video for the console – showing everything that comes in the game. Take a look below!
I’ve already got 2 PS4’s so I can’t even think about wanting a new PS4 like this. The Batman PS4 was probably the nicest though.
This new advert is pretty cool, but also a bit cringy, the advert/commercial outlines the average day in the life of a PS4 player, mine is a bit different however, monday to friday working, along with more often than not working the weekend, and by the time I’m home I’m too tired to jump on my PS4, but hey.
Take a look at the video below, with the music backing Chemical Brothers: Go. I do like the song, but hearing it cut so oddly, I’m not too much a fan of it.
Either way, there’s once again tonnes of references to Destiny, Batman, No Mans Sky, Call of Duty. It’s pretty cool, see how many references you can spot!
Shuhei Yoshida has made an interesting announcement that they don’t intend on selling PS VR at a profit, and hope on making their money back through the software side of things.
Much like they have done with previous consoles, selling it cheaper in the hope to get the install base in on it. With games like RIGS: Mechanized, and oddly enough, support for Tekken 7, this game is something else that would help sell headsets.
We tend to price hardware not to make money from it but to get as many install base so that content can be sold, this is the same kind of thinking in the way that we are approaching PlayStation VR.
In regards to pricing though, I will still probably purchase this no matter the price, because I’m silly like that, but honestly speaking my top limit is £300, I won’t be spending any more than that.
I’d expect this to be priced about £200/$300, given that Andrew House mentioned it’d be the price of a normal console but with Shuhei saying they won’t be selling it at a profit. Who knows!
When Fallout 4 was announced a meer 6 months ago, it was criticised slightly for it’s graphical fidelity. To put these worries at ease however, for the sake of comparisons, website TechnoBuffalo have uploaded a few images which show the previous game, which you can quite obviously see there are some amazing improvements in the game.
Take a look at the images below, and let me know what you think!
So it’s time to show off the new Rise of the Tomb Raider trailer, just another punch in the gut about it – but who am I to complain, with Street Fighter not making its way to Xbox… at all.
The game is being released next week, so like any game it’s time to release the launch trailer a week before the game is released.
Take a look at the trailer, if you’ve got an Xbox and will be playing this game, I’d love to hear your thoughts when it arrives!
One of Xbox’s selling points for this generation is the backwards compatibility, which is a really cool feature! It is due any time now, and with this in mind Xbox uploaded a new video which is somewhat of a tutorial on how to use it/how it works. FAQ interview, as such. It’s a well made video, and Microsoft should market the heck out of this to get the next (current) gen console race back up and running!
Key points to take away are:
- A game is only backwards compatible if it’s on the Xbox store as a registered game
- All DLC, saves & content carry over
- You can use the 360 settings & menu to navigate and send messages
- You can still make use of One features, such as DVR and screencapture
