Call of Duty November 4

Whether or not you like the Call of Duty series, you can’t deny that the recent announcement of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has stirred people up. Some people love it, some hate, some say it looks like every Call of Duty game ever, some say it looks new and innovative for the series, some accuse it of ripping off other franchises… It’s gotten people’s attentions.

As the name suggests, Advanced Warfare has a more futuristic plot than previous games in the series, as its set in 2054. The official description of the plot, as released by Activision, says:

“Set in the year 2054, a private military corporation (PMC) has emerged with the power to rescue humanity from a devastated world struggling to rebuild after a global attack on its military and infrastructure. You are the advanced soldier. Empowered with new, cutting-edge exoskeleton abilities, technological advancements and high-tech gear, players join the ranks of a highly-trained, specialized unit committed to restoring order in a state of advanced warfare.”

Infamous: Second Son’s Technology and Surprising Origins

March 16, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


With the release of Infamous: Second Son just over a week away, it’s no surprise that more and more details are coming out. This time, we don’t have any new gameplay details, but still a lot of interesting bits of information.

Early today, some game footage was leaked that contained a scene from the E3 2013 trailer. The scene looked significantly different, and when a series of comparison shots were revealed, some fans began to insist there was a downgrade in the game’s graphics. Tech Art Lead Jason Connell responded to the rumors by saying there is no downgrade in quality. The differences in that scene are because of the lighting, as they set it in the evening for the final product, while the original trailer showed it in the daylight.

He went on to share a lot of details about the lighting effects in Second Son. At night, the city skies will mimic the real effect known as “light pollution,” where “the clouds turn an average light color from the city below.” Although there is no dynamic time system, the time will change as the player progresses with the story, through eight different times of day. The brightness will vary according to the time of day, just as it does in real life. He also praised the PS4’s power for allowing them to do so many great things, such as allowing for “more lights, more reflections, more particles, [and] lights in particles.”

He’s not the only one who mentioned the particle effects, either. Sucker Punch’s co-founder, Chris Zimmerman, said that with the PS4, “we can have particle systems with tens of thousands of particles without any trouble, and have up to a hundred or two thousand particles on screen at once in effects-heavy shots.” These particle effects are what allow for the beautiful powers we’ve seen so far in Second Son’s trailers.

We’ll leave you with one final, bizarre piece of information, which Zimmerman shared with GameSpot. The Infamous series was originally planned as “Animal Crossing, but you were a super hero.” At one point, they imagined a section where you confronted “a gang of purple gorillas who were stealing balloons.”

We aren’t quite sure how Sucker Punch went from purple gorillas to the current incarnation of the Infamous series, but the previous games and everything we’ve seen about Second Son makes us glad it happened!

Infamous: Second Son – Different Times of Day, Rumored High Sales

by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment

Infamous time of day

A lot of information has been leaked about Infamous: Second Son over the past couple of days, because some players have managed to get their hands on early copies. However, Sucker Punch has officially asked them not to share any spoilers, including gameplay footage, because of the effort it has put into keeping things a secret. The good news is that there are still plenty of details we can discuss!

Tech Art Lead Jason Connell previously mentioned the lighting effects used in the different times of day in Infamous: Second Son. Today, Sucker Punch released a gif showing a single location at seven different times of day. Connell mentioned eight times of day, which makes us curious about that time that remains unrevealed. Perhaps it contains spoilers?

Check it out and witness all of the beautiful lighting and weather effects.

Meanwhile, DualShockers revealed some spoiler-free leaked screenshots of actual gameplay, rather than cutscenes. Take a look.

Are you looking forward to Infamous: Second Son? One industry insider believes a ton of people are. According to Pete “FamousMortimer” Dodd, the game’s social metrics are “through the roof.” While we can’t confirm his inside knowledge, he has used the high number of views on last week’s Second Son gameplay trailer as support for his claim. (He also claims EA wishes they brought Titanfall to Sony’s consoles.)

Well, we’ve just got under a week to go before we can hear some real sales figures.

Titanfall: More Videos and Screenshots

March 9, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment


As Titanfall’s arrival gets ever nearer, more leaked images and videos are appearing across the Internet. What we have for you this time are 150 Titanfall images from Imgur user Conkerkid11, and three new videos from Youtube users Sti4thewin and JesusFruit10.

Conkerkid11’s images are from the PC version of Titanfall. Of the videos, two are from the Xbox One version, while the third is from the PC. Dualshockers was kind enough to add non-Youtube versions of the videos, as some Titanfall videos have already been removed by EA.

Everything we’ve seen just makes us more excited for Titanfall. Check them out for yourself and share your opinions in the comments.

New Screenshots for War Thunder

March 3, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment

War Thunder, the multiplayer vehicular combat game planned for the PC, Mac, and PS4, is currently in open beta, but North American players are hopeful that a release date for the full release is coming soon. Gaijin Entertainment began development on War Thunder in 2009, although it was called World of Planes until 2012, when land and sea combat were introduced. Since then, it has gone through many updates, and it was released as a free download on the PS4 for Europe on November 29, 2013.

We haven’t heard an official North American PS4 release date yet, but rumors place it sometime in April. We’ll let you know if we receive confirmation of that.

Some new screenshots from the PC version have surfaced, although some players have said the graphics are not as good on the PS4 version. Nevertheless, take a look and tell us what you think. Additionally, if you’ve played the EU version, what do you think of War Thunder? Is it worth the wait?

Infamous: Second Son – New Screenshots and Details

February 20, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment

SCEA’s third entry to the Infamous series, Infamous: Second Son, was unveiled a year ago. The first two games were released on the PS3, but Second Son will be a PS4 exclusive. It will release on March 21.

Last week, we showed you some new screenshots of the game environments and the powers used by the new protagonist, Delsin Rowe. Now we have two more screenshots to share. Like the previous ones, they really demonstrate the power of the PS4 and the attention to graphical detail new games are capable of.

We’ve also gotten to see the box art, thanks to PlayStation France Community Coordinator PixelTux. He revealed both the front and back cover, in English, French, Spanish, and Italian. The information on the back cover shows the installation size to be 24 GB. On the PS4, that should mean you won’t have to wait very long at all for your game to install.


Additionally, European fans might want to head on over to PSN to take advantage of the current sale on the previous Infamous games and DLC.

What are your thoughts on Infamous: Second Son? Are you planning to pick it up when it releases in just over a month?

Sony Shares Screenshots of Unreleased Games

February 7, 2014 by Staff - Leave a comment

Ginza, Tokyo is currently housing the Try! Playstation 4 event, but even though we aren’t there, we still can learn about new PS4 games. Sony is using the consoles’ “Share” feature to tweet screenshots from a variety of games, including some that haven’t been released here yet.

So far, they’ve shared PS4 screenshots of Strider, Octodad: Dadliest Catch, Dream C Club: Host Girls on Stage, Dynasty Warriors 8: Xtreme Legends, and Tottemo E Mahjong Plus. Some of these games will probably never come to the west, but we still can admire them, right?

The resolutions are low because of the way the “Share” feature compresses images, but take a look and see what you think.
