This week Destiny had a patch note released, We get a release date for Batman: Return To Arkham, we see some gameplay on Mass Effect: Andromeda. Playstation will be having two new consoles, Mod Support will not be coming to PS4 for Fallout 4 and have more news for you to read.
This week’s update is big. If you’re reading this on the forum, you might just have made it past the first challenge of loading. If you’re on the blog, you won’t be having that problem, but you will have to flip pages. This is all thanks to that wonderful gaming conference known as Gamescom in Cologne, Germany. We’re recapping the biggest points from the event in this update that is sure to break your Youtube if you keep refreshing, and I speak from experience.
For easy reference, the first page of the update covers the Microsoft Xbox Conference. The second page covers the Sony PlayStation Conference. The third page covers games covered in neither of the two conferences, the Deals of the Week, and the SIP News.
Continuing from the momentum Sony gained from last years presentation, they went even bigger with their stage presence and the offerings they’ll be bringing to gamers later this year and into the next. With the controversy of last year’s Xbox One reveal waning, fans and potential purchasers have good reason to ask and see why a PS4 should find a permanent place in their entertainment center. Sony brought their game(s), and offered plenty of reasons as to why a PlayStation 4 is a prime candidate for any dedicated gamer. Plenty of announcements to ogle at, so without further ado, here’s what they brought to E3!
The impending release of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag, Battlefield 4, and Call of Duty: Ghosts means that the hype train is at full speed. Also with Halloween around the corner, both Microsoft and Sony saw fit to have sales on their zombie- and survival-themed games. Read the full update to watch all of the launch trailers and check out what’s on sale this week.
News on the SIP front was slow this week – only the Last Man Standing 1v1 Tournament was of note. Only two players remain standing, so it’s time for them to either go big, or go home.
Lastly, we have an invited review by SpecOp3 for The Last of Us, the critically-acclaimed game developed by Naughty Dog for the Playstation 3. If you are thinking about getting the game, make sure to read his review to see what impressed him, and what didn’t.
Starting October 22nd and going through October 28th, Sony has opened the graves for their first week of killer game deals. The sale has already started but it isn’t too late to grab some great deals. If you are a PS Plus member, you will receive a further discount on the already great prices. Check the list below for this weeks game deals:
So this week was a pretty big week because of the release of a record breaking game about car thefts. Other than that, the Tokyo Game Show is underway so expect some more news later.
The Shenanigans also have officially returned this week an will be featured every week again.
Enjoy the update.
The biggest gaming event of the year is always E3. Almost every company comes together to show off what they have planned for the rest of the year. During this time they will reveal things that were rumored, or completely surprise us with something brand new.
Ahead of tomorrow’s new Xbox reveal, Sony has decided to steal some of Microsoft’s thunder by releasing a new teaser trailer for the Playstation 4 console. The video gives a date of June 10th, 2013 to explain that the PS4 console will be fully revealed at E3.
As always, feel free to discuss the new PS4 console on our discussion board.
A little late in the week for a release spotlight but it’ll be something you guys will be seeing every Monday. I’ve been working on different layouts and found this to be the most practical for the information provided. Let me know in the discussion what you liked/disliked about this article and of course enjoy these fresh releases!
