By Sam Coles:

Dragon Age Inquisition Trailer: Combat System.


 
By Sam Coles:
 
The guys at EA and Bioware are starting a short video series discussing the different aspects of their latest game Dragon Age Inquisition which will be aired leading up to the release date of November.
 
The first video they have shown off the combat system in great detail and how tactical it is by having a camera you can move through the battlefield when you’re engaged with the enemy. This seems to give you great flexibility because you can see things from a different angle and take a different approach to fighting if you see fit. If you are a more action orientated person like the Dragon Age II combat then don’t worry Bioware have catered for both audiences, the hardcore strategy fans and the high octane hack and slash for you blood thirsty warriors.
 
 
Each video they show off with the gameplay leaves more and more impressed as we edge closer to the release date of the game and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. Dragon Age Inquisition is to release November 21st on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC.

Call of Duty Advance Warfare New Story Trailer

 
 
 
By Sam Coles:
 
The latest Call of Duty trailer was released today revealing more of the games story mode which seems to be an interesting direction for the series compared to the complete disaster that was COD Ghosts campaign.
 
The theme that seems to be surrounding this game's story is how power corrupts  people and how goverments around the world are relying on PMC groups rather than their own miltary forces because they are not bound by countries or ideologies. It looks to be an interesting narrative and might give an injection of life into the Call of Duty series. Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will be Released on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC on Novemeber 4th.

Oddworld: New "n" Tasty Review.



By Sam Coles:
 
Back in 1997 a small company called Oddworld Inhabitants set out to create an artistic and cinematic platformer called Abe’s Oddyssey. What we got for the time was something new and completely different, something we’ve never seen as gamers with its fantastic artistic style and its dark themes. I love this game and it’s one of my favourite games for the PS1 and to see it revived and redone from scratch for the PS4 17 years later is awesome.
 
From the studio Just Add Water we are greeted with Oddworld: New “n” Tasty and I know what you’re thinking that this is going to be a lazy HD remake, but hold your horses this game is nothing of the sort. This game has been given the pride and has left most of the source material alone such as script (except for a few added lines and cutscenes) and the soundtrack which has been merely enhanced. This game has been remastered and built from the ground up with visuals and gameplay.
 
 
If you don’t know what the story is to Abe’s Oddyssey here is the basic gist. You play as Abe a member of race called the Mudokons who have under gone slavery for generations by the Glukkons. Abe was voted employee of the year and life seemed pretty good for him, until one night when he was working late he finds out that all species that they use for meat for food at Rupture Farms are decline and heading towards extinction. They have a plan to solve the problem and they want to turn their workers into Mudokon pops to solve their money problem. So Abe must go on a long journey in this colourful yet dangerous world to save his race from total annihilation while he’s being hunted.
 
Compared to the 1997 release all the gameplay and visuals have been completely refined which makes feel less clunky. Let’s start off with Abe’s movement which feels smoother along with the screen constantly scrolling and moving with you rather than the static screens for each area from the original which made it so you didn’t know what was ahead as well as the enemies respawning.
 
 
Abe feels more flexible and keeps momentum while keeping a decent speed and it no longer feels that you’re running on soap when you turn around. On the downside of the default movement being running all the time is that some of the more precise and careful platforming segments will end up with your untimely death exploding into chunks when you run head first into a landmine. Overall though Abe’s now platforming agility is good and feels fresh.
 
 
They’ve also taken other gameplay elements from Abe’s Exodus such as being able to communicate with multiple Mudokons and that is a big help and there are now just under 300 of them to save compared to the original 99 so good luck finding them all. You can now quick save which is really helpful in the really long puzzle sequences that start you all the way at the beginning if you die. All you have to do is hit the touch pad on the PS4 controller and it will save you in that exact position and when you die all have to do is hold down the track pad and it will take back to that position.
 
 
 
All the gamespeak controls are now mapped to the D-pad and you hold R2 to change to the whistling or farting (if you’re feeling juvenile). It makes it easier to talk to the characters because it no longer stops you in your tracks when you’re moving through the level and keeps it at a good pace.
 
 
The mind control makes a glorious return where you can take the reins of the trigger happy lackies called Sligs. This will help you get through some sections where you can kill of other Sligs, but you can't use it all the time because there will be an robot object that will shock you sometimes protecting them. There are other ways of dispatching foes such as tricking them into running into mines or throwing grenades at them.
 
The only problem there was during gameplay was that the game did crash on me the first time, it just gave an error message and the second time the whole system locked up so hopefully they’ll fix this in the future with a patch.
 
 
The graphics have been given a massive overhaul yet it still maintains the same feeling of the original with this dark, bleak and oppressive world you find yourself in with danger emerging around every corner. Everything runs at a buttery smooth 60 fps most of the time there are a few hiccups here and there when there are too many things exploding, but in general it runs at 60fps and 1080p, everything runs well and looks absolutely stunning.  
 
Overall Oddworld: New “n” Tasty is a fantastic experience if you want to go back and relive the memories of Rupture Farms, or traverse the beautiful forests of Parmonia. If you are a first time Oddworld player or not this is a game that you shouldn’t miss.

Tekken 7 trailer straight from San Diego Comic-Con.

 
 
By Sam Coles:
With the recent announcement of Tekken 7 for the next gen we’ve all speculated what the gameplay would be like, does this trailer explain what the gameplay is like in motion? No. It’s another reveal trailer explaining the Mishima and Kazama conflict that has been the main focus in the Tekken series since its debut in 1995. All we know engine wise is that the game will be running on the Unreal 4 engine from Epic games.

Risen 3 Back to the Roots Trailer.

 
 
By Sam Coles:
 
 
(Trailer source: IGN).
 
Deep Silver have come out with a new trailer for the third instalment of the Risen series, it shows off the vast and detailed world as well as showing off how the game handles when traveling and when you’re locked in combat with the beasts that reside in the world.
 
This game looks promising as it looks as if they are taking more of a Gothic approach to this game because it’s the same developers of the Gothic series. The first two games they were not the best litter with low resolution textures and buggy gameplay mechanics.
 
What I like about Risen is that they don’t stick to the same generic fantasy locales although they’re playing it safe this time with the standard high fantasy setting. The first one was set in a Japanese style island and the second game was a pirate adventure completely unconnected to the original, it shows creativity and originality. Let’s hope the game will be a good swan song to Xbox 360 and PS3.
 
Risen 3 releases on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on the 15th of August so get ready for adventure.

Battlefield Hardline and Dragon Age Inquisition Delayed!



By Sam Coles:
 
The mixed opinion game Battlefield Hardline which has been seen more like an expansion pack than a game has been push back from its October release to 2015; this is probably due to them still fixing Battlefield 4 although Dice are not working on Hardline directly.
 
Perhaps EA have learnt from their mistakes this time and are willing to give them more time this time for developers to make the game as polished as they can. Battlefield 4 when it was released last November was a complete and utter mess with glitches, bugs and the online games being nearly unplayable to lag and bad hit detection.
 
 
 
Dragon Age Inquisition also receives a delay, but not as bad as Battlefield, the highly anticipated open world RPG has been delayed from its October release and is now to release in November instead, so it’s less of wait compared to Battlefield at least it’s not another year like last time with Dragon Age.
 
What do you think? Do you like the fact that EA are giving these developers more time to clear up any bugs to give you a clean and functional experience? Let me know in the comments or Tweet @bristoliangamer.

Grid Autosport: "Best of British" Add on now available.

 
 
 
By Sam Coles:
A new add on has been released by the guys at codemasters with three new cars from the United Kingdom as known as “Best of British” pack.
 
You’ll get access three new cars to help dominate in your career in Grid Autosport and to take down your opponents online. The three cars you’ll have access to are:
 
 
 
1995 McLaren F1 GTR
“We all know the McLaren F1 is an awesome road car – this is the GTR designed for Endurance Racing. It’s got a huge wing that will give you massive downforce in the corners, it’s all about being brave and attacking those corners at speeds you never thought possible.”
 
2011 Aston Martin Zagato V12
“The Zagato model has bodywork styled by Italian designers, but has a typical Aston Martin V12 engine, very powerful, very torquey. If you can manage the weight and the grip and fire it out the corners, you’ll benefit from all that power from the V12.”
 
2007 McLaren Mercedes SLR 722
“It’s got a huge supercharged V8 engine that sounds like an old World War Two Spitfire. There’s clearly a lot of power being put out from the V8, and you can really feel that in the car in our game.”

 
The DLC is available now on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC for the low price of £2.39 so grab your British made cars and hit the circuit.

Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty Launch Trailer.

 
By Sam Coles:
 
The remaster of one of my favourite PS1 games from 1997 Abe’s Oddyssey finally graces its presences on the 23rd of July on the PS4 with new gameplay, shiney new graphics and re-recorded cutscenes for current gen consoles. There is no word when the PS3, Vita or Wii U versions are coming out, but get ready if you have a PS4 with this launch trailer.

Yogscast's Yogventures Cancelled!

 
By Sam Coles:
 
The incredibly popular Youtube channel Yogscast have hit a bit of a predicament in the form of a brick wall. It was announced that the game they were working on titled “Yogsventures” has been cancelled due to the overwhelming nature according to the developers who were working on it. In case you don’t know what Yogventures was an open world sandbox game which would of featured members of the Yogscast such as Simon and Lewis, it was similar to Minecraft.
Yogscast started this on kickstarted asking for a goal of $250,000 and they exceeded that goal and almost hit $600k. They out sourced the development to an American developer Winter Cool Games, which only consisted of six people and that included the guy managing it. According the person managing the project he said on the Yogscast forums “He had a lack of experience managing a project of a large scope”. He also stated that he nearly lost his job and lost his wife in the process of the project.
The big question out of this is what happened to the half a million dollars that was given to them by their loyal fan base? Who knows, but what we do know is that Yogventures is not seeing the light of day and the backers for the project aren’t receiving refunds. According to Yogscast they’re not obligated to do anything about the situation.

Retro Review: Super Mario Land.

 
 
By Sam Coles:
We’ve entered the season known as “bugger all is coming out” where the gaming industry takes a back seat with news and releases of games so it gives us gaming reviewers and journalists a time to rest and indulge ourselves of games from the past or review games that we didn’t get to review this time round.
The game in question in this retro review takes us back to the year 1989, this marked the release date of the Nintendo Gameboy and it was the first commercially successful portable gaming system by Nintendo. I know you’re all going to say that it wasn’t the first portable gaming system and bring up the Game and Watch, but this system really broke into the casual market with people who don’t usually play video games, with titles such as Tetris that helped.
The launch title I’m here to review is Super Mario Land it was released alongside the Gameboy in 1989 and was the first Mario game not to be created by the legendary Shigeru Miyamoto, but was instead headed and directed by the creator of the Gameboy and the producer of the Metroid series Gunpei Yokoi. So we had a new Mario game that was trusted to someone else.
 
 
So if you have been living under a rock or something you should know how a standard Mario game works with running and jumping keeping up a good speed to get through a level with careful platforming, but with some new enemies that we haven’t seen since this game debuted, from weird flies to sphinx’s that spit fire at you.
The locales aren’t your standard Mario setting either because instead of the familiar Mushroom Kingdom you have various locations from the different continents and countries around the world. These could be an Egyptian temple to an Easter Island style cave with the statues displaying in the background.
 
As well as the standard running and jumping in this game they added different segments to split up and add variety to gameplay such as having Mario piloting a submarine to get through those annoying water levels quickly while shooting everything in your way or fly in a plane and again shoot everything that moves. When you finish each level there will be two exits, the bottom one will let you finish as usual and the top one will grant you a bonus mini game where you have to determine which platform Mario goes on to score an extra life or power up such as a fireflower.
My only nitpicks with this game and it’s mainly due to the hardware limitations of lack colour is the fact you can’t tell when Mario has a fireflower and they did fix this situation with Super Mario Land 2 by having a feather in his cap, but it’s a bit irritating in this one. Another slight annoyance is that Mario does have any momentum when he jumps he feels incredibly floaty and sometimes you can’t judge where he is going to land when you go for long distance jumps.
Overall Super Mario Land is still a great game and is good to burn some time when you have nothing to do due to its short length and that’s not a bad thing. You can pick it up for fairly cheap because it’s not a particularly rare game, so if you want to relive some nostalgia or want to play it for the first time then pick up your Gameboy, Gameboy Colour or Gameboy Advanced. There is no shortage of systems to play this on.

Rockstar Verified: 10 New GTA Online Jobs Including the #IMNOTAHIPSTER Selections



By Sam Coles:

Rockstar once more give us more verified jobs with the latest roster of user created content throughout this fantastic and imagintive community using assets from the "I'm not a hipster" update.



Dubsta Warz - created by Darteyld

Put the climbing ability of your new Dubsta to the test in this point-to-point Race where roads are for the weak. Starting out on Chumash Beach, get to the edge of the Grand Senora Desert as the crow flies, crossing mountains and scaling vertiginous slopes under twilight.



The 80’s Turf War - created by GAMRZ_UK_SLiCkZ3

This neighborhood gang shootout uses over the top, action movie inspired weapons and careful placement of the cars included in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update to give Grove Street a vintage feel. Players start with a Micro SMG and a handful of ammo, though more powerful weapons can be picked up if you can find them. The scarcity of ammo here encourages a varied approach, whether it's stalking the rooftops or demonstrating that the bonnet of a Glendale is not the best cover when there are RPGs flying around.




Panto-monium Microcircuit - created by THEKerles

Proving that the Panto isn't just for old ladies and tree huggers, this intimate Lap Race is a test of car control and the ability to find the correct racing line. Expect tense bumper-to-bumper action, with very little runoff around some of the sharpest corners. You'll want to make the most of the few overtaking opportunities available.



Swedish Folkrace - created by MaximilianR18

Swedish Folkrace is a mixture of tarmac and off-road racing for inexpensive road vehicles - perfect for some of the cars featured in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update. MaximilianR18 - a member of both the CREATOR CORE CLUB and GTA Content Creators Crews - has introduced this local pastime to GTA Online, adding slippery turns that make for an intense Lap Race with plenty of sideways action. As the description suggests, try this one in your customized Warrener.



HIPSTER DEATH RALLY - created by diggzzzz

The dirt roads by Senora Airstrip are the stage for this high speed off-road Race well suited to the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update cars. Watch out for the oil container on the first corner, or you could find yourself going out with the wrong kind of bang. There's also a ramp around half way to potentially slow you down or, if you come off a slipstream at just the right time, provide an opportunity for a stylish aerial overtake.



The Coil - Created by Wormbo

A hair-raising Race for Supercars that snakes around the oval ring roads at Los Santos International Airport and then down a sharp detour past the Sightings restaurant and back again. Prepare for white knuckles gripping steering wheels and game controllers as you hurtle around fast sweeping curves, along single track overpasses or through the chicanes and hairpins around the restaurant. Long narrow sections overlap several times, maximizing potential for some spectacular high-speed crashes.



The Los Santos Triangle - Created by Ma1evo1ent Cheese

After the Verification of Farm Fresh, Ma1evo1ent Cheese comes up with the goods once again with this short, technical Race with tight, Grand Prix-style corners that will push your car handling skills to the breaking point. Leave traffic off and go with Non-Contact to ensure that there are no distractions as you gun each lap trying to improve on your personal best. The default Supercar class will get around the course pretty quick, so go for a full 4 laps to really get a feel for it.




Loop the Lake - created by twisterrk

This is a beautifully simple Lap Race around the Vinewood Lake that provides fantastic views of the Vinewood sign, the Galileo Observatory and the Downtown Los Santos skyline. Try not to get distracted by the scenery as you battle for position on a narrow curving road. Aggressive maneuvers will pay off, but don't be afraid to use the brake to avoid getting trapped behind the low tire walls at several corners. This Race plays well with most vehicle classes but try Muscle or Sports for a more technical challenge. Creator twisterrk is a member of the Reddit Dads Crew - specifically designed for those whose family commitments limit the time that they have to play GTA Online. If that's a familiar issue, get involved!


Pit Stop - Created by IckyQualms

Thematically similar to previous verified Deathmatch Lodge Battle, this is a tight TDM map with plenty of hazards - don't linger too long by the fuel tanks! Pit Stop takes place in an underappreciated area of the map just off the Palomino freeway. Head off-piste to find the lone sniper rifle or make a play for the array of melee weapons to get a jump on unsuspecting opponents coming around corners.




Retaliate - Created by gun_harmony

A tight Deathmatch map that makes for a small, frantic 2-team TDM or compact free-for-all. A compact setup with good use of vertical space, plenty of cover and opportunities to flank the enemy team. Head in with your Crew for an 8v8 battle and seek retribution on any Crews you've got beef with.


Go and check these jobs with your friends now becuase they are now available.

Super Smash Bros. New Challengers Emerge.





By Sam Coles:

As we journey ever so closer to the release date of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS they keep showing us more and more characters spanning the universe of Nintendo that we’ll get to play as or beat the hell out of.

The latest to grace the roster is one of the veterans of the series who has been in the franchise since its humble beginning on the N64. No other than the F-Zero racer Captain Falcon with his signature move the Falcon Punch.

Also announce were two completely new characters from Fire Emblem Lucina who seems to look like a copy and paste pallet of Marth but female I don’t but I’ll have to play and find out. Robin from Fire Emblem is strange one because he or she (two genders you can pick from) has a spell book that the character can only use a certain amount of times, but he not completely useless after that Robin also has a sword.

So new Smash Bros. roster is slowly filling up as the months go past and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
