Reader Discussion: Rock Band 4 Or Guitar Hero Live?

By | News | No Comments

It’s way too early to make a decision between the two (which technically you don’t have to), but I am going to make you do it anyway.

As the past has proven, there is no reason both of these games can’t exist simultaneously. Each has their own distinct mechanics and likely exclusive songs to offer, and many music game fans will likely purchase both, but if you had to pick just one, which would it be?

With Rock Band 4 your past library will move forward, and your instruments probably will, too. With Guitar Hero Live, you will be starting from scratch with an updated peripheral and brand new mechanics.

Head here to read up on Rock Band, and here to read up on Guitar Hero, and then return to this discussion post and plant your flag.

Mortal Kombat X Patch 1.02 Out Now, Includes New Skins, Gameplay Changes

By | News | No Comments

NetherRealm has released patch 1.02 for its fighting game Mortal Kombat X, the developer has announced.

The patch includes new costumes for a few fighters, including a classic skin for the ice-wielding ninja Sub-Zero. More importantly, the patch makes a few gameplay changes, which are listed below.

  • General – Throws (regular or command grabs) will no longer sometimes connect on a grounded reacting opponent off a counter hit
  • Shinnok (Impostor) – He can now control the location of a stolen Goro Stomp.
  • Subzero (Grandmaster) – Combos on a grounded opponent frozen by the Ice Klone will now scale properly.
  • Takeda (Ronin) – Added a new move “Quick Kall” (Down, Towards, Front Punch) which quickly returns a dropped blade without doing an attack.
  • Takeda (Shirai Ryu) – He will now always teleport to the other side when doing the Air Shirai Ryu Port

In case you missed it, yesterday NeatherRealm released a patch on PC that fixed several issues, and granted an extra 10,000 Krypt Koins to all PC players for their patience on launch day.

On Twitter, NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon said that the patch should also improve performance on PC.

Mortal Kombat X launched earlier this week, and though he didn’t share specific numbers, according to Boone it was the biggest launch in the franchise’s history.

Mortal Kombat X is currently available for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and mobile devices. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions of the game have been delayed and will arrive this summer.

Learn How The Mega Modem Gave Sega Genesis Downloadable Games In 1990

By | News | No Comments

The Sega Genesis was ahead of its time in many ways, including online connectivity.

The Mega Modem in Japan and Sega Channel in the United States gave Genesis players the ability to buy and download games well before the Internet was commonplace in everyone’s home. The latest video from Did You Know Gaming also looks at Sega’s competitive history with Nintendo, and explains how blast processing was technically more than just marketing buzzwords.

Players are reporting an issue when trying to play their digital copies of Mortal Kombat X while signed online on PlayStation 4. Warner Bros. Interactive has offered a temporary workaround while, “the developers work on a permanent solution.”

You can find full details of the workaround by heading here. Basically, if you’re having problems playing Mortal Kombat X while signed into PSN on PlayStation 4, you will want to sign out, start the game, and then sign back in once you reach Mortal Kombat X’s main menu.

It’s unclear exactly what is causing this problem, but Warner Bros. Interactive is aware of the issue and is working on a permanent solution. It is explicit in this post that this is just a temporary measure to keep PlayStation 4 players playing the game.

We’ve reached out to Warner Bros. Interactive support for more details and will update this story if and when we receive a response.

Project Cars Has 110 Courses, 30 Locations at Launch

By | News | No Comments

Realistic racing game Project Cars will have 110 courses and 30 locations at launch, developer Slightly Mad Studios has announced.

The courses and locations are based on real tracks from around the world, including famous spots like Nürburgring in Germany, Zhuhai International Circuit in China, Chesterfield in the United Kingdom, and the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France.

Most locations will have multiple layouts for different types of races, which is how Project Cars reaches the impressive 110 courses mark. The California State Route 1, for example, has five different configurations.

You can find the full list of courses and locations on Project Cars’ website.

Following a succession of delays to the project on at least three occasions, the racing sim is now due to ship in the Americas on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on Friday May 6. The UK market will get the game on May 8.

Developer Slightly Mad Studios has plans to ship a version on Wii U, but details on the release date for this remain vague.

Guitar Hero Live’s GHTV To Feature ‘Hundreds’ Of Songs At Launch

By | News | No Comments

Activision’s senior director of product management Tyler Michaud recently spoke with us about GHTV, the playable music video network that is set to be continually updated throughout the game’s life. When asked how many songs would be made available on the game, Michaud wouldn’t go into specifics, but he did give us a ballpark of what to expect in terms of the number of songs available when players play the game for the first time this fall.

“At a minimum, there will be hundreds at launch on day one in GHTV alone,” he says.

Guitar Hero Live is coming this fall on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and select mobile devices. The game, which is being developed by DJ Hero devs FreeStyleGames, features a reworked guitar peripheral as well as an approach that includes a live-action backdrop behind the note highway. To learn more about this upcoming rebirth of the Guitar Hero franchise, head over to our coverage of the announcement.

 

Our Take
Content is always king when it comes to the rhythm game genre, and ensuring that many songs are available right at launch is big on Activision’s part. I hope this kind of strong support continues throughout the entire span of Guitar Hero Live’s shelf life.

GTA 5’s First PC Patch Has Arrived

By | News | No Comments

The first patch for the PC version of Grand Theft Auto V has been released, and it resolves a number of issues players have been reporting this week.

The fixes in this patch are truly wide-ranging–they deal with everything from crashes in the launcher and frame rate issues to much stranger things, like birds not flying properly in Rockstar Editor clips and players’ eyebrows and facial features being changed when they’re transferred to PC.

Patch 1.01 also addresses the bizarre issue that prevents the game from installing and running properly if you have anything but a letter or number in your Windows username. Rockstar offered a workaround for that earlier this week–basically, make a new user account and name it only using letters A-Z and numbers 0-9. If you did so, Rockstar’s support website has been updated with details on how to continue your progress from the new Windows account on your old one.

Other problems that continue to exist aren’t things Rockstar can necessarily fix–for instance, to not lose your vehicles from the Xbox 360/PS3 versions of GTA Online, you need to log in to the game from that console before initiating the PC transfer process if you haven’t played since December 2013. For more details on that, Windows Media Player problems, and other issues, check out our list of workarounds.

Read on for the full list of 1.01 patch notes.

  • Fixed an issue where the GTA V Launcher would use an abnormally high percentage of CPU and sometimes crash
  • Fixed an issue where frame rate would drop when left-clicking the mouse while driving
  • Added a grid to the Golf mini-game to show the topology of the green while putting
  • Fixed an issue where a character’s eyebrows or other facial features could change erroneously when transferred to PC
  • Fixed an issue where a some players were asked to transfer their GTA Online character while a transfer was already in progress
  • YouTube uploads via the Rockstar Editor will now correctly resume if Internet connection is lost during the upload and later restored
  • Fixed a rare issue where the game could crash while using the Rockstar Editor
  • Projects containing deleted clips will now load properly in the Rockstar Editor and warn the player of the missing clips
  • Fixed an issue where birds were not recorded correctly in Rockstar Editor clips
  • Corrected an issue where certain characters in Windows usernames would cause the Launcher to fail to load or other undesired game behavior. For details, see this page.
  • Fixed an issue where players with one garage would not be able to replace an existing vehicle if the garage was full and the new vehicle was purchased from an in-game website
  • Additional fixes to prepare for iFruit support
  • Crew Tire Smoke can no longer be purchased if you are not in a Crew

Donkey Kong 64 Now Available On Wii U Virtual Console

By | News | No Comments

Donkey Kong 64, Rare’s collect-a-thon platformer, is now available on the Wii U’s Virtual Console.

Announced during Nintendo’s most recent Direct presentation, you can grab the game now for $9.99 on the Wii U. This and Super Mario 64 are among the first of the Wii U initiative to release Nintendo 64 games on the Wii U’s Virtual Console.

We played the game on Replay back in 2012, and you can check out the episode below. At the time we released this episode, we were in the middle of a heated debate about which was the best Nintendo 64-era platformer: Super Mario 64, Banjo-Kazooie, or Donkey Kong 64.

(Please visit the site to view this media)

[Source: Nintendo eShop]

 

Our Take
I love the Donkey Kong Country series, but never got too deep into Donkey Kong 64. I remember renting it, but just being absolutely overwhelmed by the number of playable characters and collectibles. It was too much to take in during the three to five day period I had with the game.

Weekly Recap: PS4 Beats Xbox One, Guitar Hero 7 Announced, Star Wars Battlefront Revealed

By | News | No Comments

THE BIG STUFF:

PS4 Returns to #1 Spot in US Hardware Sales During March: After being outsold by the Nintendo 3DS in March, Sony’s new console took back the top spot, becoming the best-selling console for March in the United States, according to NPD data.

New Guitar Hero Revealed With Revamped Hardware and Online Music: Activision is getting the band back together. The publisher this week officially announced Guitar Hero Live, due out this fall for consoles alongside Rock Band 4. Get all the details here.

Star Wars: Battlefront — Everything You Need to Know: Electronic Arts and developer DICE opened the floodgates this week for Star Wars: Battlefront. The game launches in November for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC–and it’ll have 40-player multiplayer, female Stormtroopers, and so much more. Read more here.

THE OTHER STUFF:

Halo Online, the free-to-play PC game built for Russia, continues to look darn impressive. It was made using a modified version of the engine behind 2007’s Halo 3, but that doesn’t mean the game looks eight years old. Check out this video that shows off how great the game looks.

Did you enjoy Ubisoft’s Child of Light? If you did, you’ll probably be happy to learn that the the developer said this week that “very cool projects in process set in the Child of Light universe” are currently being explored. More news is expected “soon.” Perhaps E3?

Did you know that San Francisco Giants infielder Matt Duffy loves Call of Duty? Not only does he enjoy Activision’s shooter franchise, however, but he plays with his (enormous) cat on his lap. Seems about right. Here’s a picture:

Have an extra $550 laying around? Love Metal Gear Solid? If that’s you, you’re in luck, as Musterbrand is currently offering a $550 snazzy-looking Snake jacket. Check it out here.

After three delays, gorgeous-looking racing game Project Cars has officially gone gold, meaning development has concluded. The game is due to launch in mid-May for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Wii U edition is due to launch sometime later, though a release date for this version has not been announced.

Developers who worked on the N64 classic Banjo-Kazooie are now making a spiritual successor–Project Ukulele–at their new studio, Playtonic. This week, the team published the first fully animated character model–and it’s quite excellent, if not a bit horrifying.

Italy is getting a pretty excellent PlayStation 4 bundle that comes with a system and copies of The Last of Us Remastered, Bloodborne, and The Order: 1886. Will it come to the United States? Sony hasn’t said yet, but you can cross your fingers and hope, at least. Read more about it here.

EliteGamingLive, a competitive gaming company, is looking to grow. The platform, which aims to give benefits regularly awarded to traditional athletes–such as interaction with teammates and coaches, among other things–to gamers. The group has gotten off the ground at a number of Indianopolis schools, but is looking to expand further. You can read more about the group and its efforts at the EliteGamingLive website.

Drunk man gets Charmander tattoo, which–as you might have expected–didn’t come out so great. The best (worst?) part? This was a DYI Stick ‘n’ Poke tattoo that he did himself, not at a tattoo place. Get all the frightneing (awesome?) details at The Mirror.

Not only will Geralt’s beard grow over time in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, but his face will change–potentially drastically–during the course of your playthrough. The higher his toxicity is (after drinking elixirs), the more ravaged his face will look. Take a peek in the image below, from Game Informer.

A new WWE 2K video game came out this week in the form of the first simulation-based WWE game for mobile platforms. Called WWE 2K, the game is available now on iOS and Android devices for $8.

Nintendo has announced a new partnership with GameTruck to bring exciting-sounding Wii U shooter Splatoon to the company’s entire suite of trucks starting in June. The trucks, more than 100 in all, will start showing up across the country’s major metropolitan areas in June, after the game arrives on May 29. You can get all the details here.

Here’s a treat for your eyeballs–14 minutes of Project Cars on PS4 running at 1080p. Wow! The game arrives for PS4, Xbox One, and PC next month. A Wii U version is also in the works, but it probably won’t look this good.

Mobile game developer Pocket Gems has released its latest game, a 3D RTS title for iPhone and iPad (with Apple Watch integration) called War Dragons. The game was built using the developers in-house Mantis Engine, which allows for 3D graphics and synchronous multiplayer, among other things. War Dragons features PvP and team-based battles. You can download the game right now from iTunes here.

Gaikai boss Dave Perry, who now works for Sony following that company’s acquisition of his three years ago, has written a blog post about why he thinks OnLive kicked the bucket. You can read his thoughts here.

As discovered by Kotaku, someone has beaten Obsidian’s excellent–and big–RPG Pillars of Eternity in under 40 minutes. Watch the full video here.

Developers will soon be able to make New Nintendo 3DS games using the Unity game engine, according to Gamasutra. “Nintendo and its third-party developers will also have access to Unity platform support,” the site writes.

Mortal Kombat X has crowned its first eSports champion. 17-year-old Dominique “cR|Sonic Fox” McLean dominated the competition (he lost only one game) at the ESL Mortal Kombat X Fatal 8 Tournament recently. Get the full story over at IGN.

Gamers make the best workers. That’s according to this funny new video from Curse. I think they make some pretty good points! Check out the video and let us know what you think.

There’s a new streaming service in town and it’s called Restream. It’s meant to allow users to stream a variety of services–like YouTube, Twitch, and Ustream–simultaneously. Check it out here.
