residentevil_tm_revelations2_banner_512px_1409557772

The beginning of the Resident Evil Revelations 2 tale sees fan favourite Claire Redfield make a dramatic return. Survivor of the Raccoon City incident depicted in previous Resident Evil games, Claire now works for the anti-bioterrorism organisation Terra Save. Moira Burton, is attending her welcome party for Terra Save when unknown armed forces storm the office. Claire and Moira are knocked unconscious and awaken later to find themselves in a dark and abandoned detention facility. Working together, they must find out who took them and to what sinister end. With the terrifying Afflicted enemies waiting around every dark corner, players will need to use their ammo and weapon supply wisely, in classic survival horror style. Will Claire and Moira make it out alive and discover what’s led to them being taken to this remote island? Who else will they come across? A story of twists and turns will have players guessing the next step at every turn.

All of the captured footage is from the Xbox One version of the game. I chose to play as Claire.

The ultimate deadly weapon/luxury recliner is dragged up from the depths of Hell and piloted by Steelport’s own STAG in a special episode of Gat Gear.

Gat Gear

Some say it was welded together in the depths of Hell by Satan himself, and that its upholstery was woven together from Johnny Gat’s discarded navel fluff. All we know is it’s Armchair-a-geddon. Deep Silver brings to life Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell’s most deadly, sloth-enly weapon in a one-off special Gat Gear.

It has been stirring the trousers of Saints Row fans for months and now you can see what happened when Steelport’s own tame racing driver STAG, took the fully-loaded armchair for a spin through the streets of London. In Deep Silver Volition’s Saints Row: Gat out of Hell standalone expansion, this explosive weapon is all you need to shoot the Devil in the face.

Now see it take on London traffic:

About Saints Row: Gat out of Hell
After the space faring antics of Saints Row IV, many fans asked what we could do next… the answer? Shoot The Devil in the face. Play as either Johnny Gat or Kinzie Kensington as you tear apart Hell in a quest to save the leader of the Saints’ soul. Historical icons, old friends, older enemies, a talking gun, a full length musical number, and a whole lot of other shenanigans all await you in the open world standalone expansion playground that is Saints Row: Gat out of Hell.

Gat out of Hell is the standalone expansion to the award-winning and multi-million selling Saints Row IV from Deep Silver and is available now for last gen and new gen console platforms as well as PC.

About Saints Row IV: Re-Elected

In Saints Row IV, the head honcho of the Saints has been elected to the Presidency of the United States. But the Saints are just getting started. Now the larger-than-life insanity of the Saints series gets a new twist with a catastrophic alien invasion, and the aliens have transported the Saints to a bizarre Steelport simulation. Wield gargantuan superpowers and fight to free humanity from alien granddaddy Zinyak’s mental grasp. Escape the simulation that’s trapped the Saints crew, or die trying.

With Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, players will now be able to enjoy all the antics of the blockbuster release on their new gen consoles. Re-Elected is available to buy now.

It may have been over a year now since 2K Games first revealed EVOLVE, but it’s finally coming out in a few weeks, and I sat down with Chloe Skew from Turtle Rock Studios to talk everything EVOLVE.

2K_EVOLVE_WRAITH_DECOY_1_thumb

EVOVLE is a 5 player game where 4 players work as a team to defeat the 5th player, who plays as the monster.

CDW Chloe Skew

Chloe is a producer working on EVOLVE, so over to Chloe, and we even talk about hidden cupcakes in the game, along with some other very interesting bits:

EVOLVE will be released February 10th on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.

Telltale Games have released Episode 1 of Tales of the Borderlands, and here is our spoiler free review.

rf_with-logo_1920x1080

This is how Telltale describes the game:

Like all good tales, there’s more than one side to a story. Especially one about a Vault key, the Hyperion Corporation, bandits, loot, gangsters, Vault Hunters, secret Atlas tech, explosions, getaways, extortion, betrayal, and mayhem.

Set after the events seen in Borderlands 2, Tales from the Borderlands is about Rhys, a Hyperion company man looking to become the next Handsome Jack, and it’s also about Fiona, a Pandoran con artist out to score the biggest of all swindles.

Lured into danger by a Vault key and all it promises, the unlikely duo are thrown together with a common goal and a huge amount of mistrust. Who is telling the truth, and why is it important?

That’s up to you to decide.

You are Rhys…and you are also Fiona, because like every tale worth telling, there are two…oh, you read that part already? Well, it’s important to remember that there *are* two sides to every story, and you my friend, you will tell this tale, or…tales, through the choices that you make. Your every decision as both Rhys and Fiona will affect the people and world around you: this is a game where YOU are the final author in a brand new Borderlands story set on the unforgiving world of Pandora.

Now I’m both a fan of Telltales other games, in particular The Walking Dead, and also of the Borderlands series from 2K Games and Gearbox, so when I heard about Tales of the Borderlands I couldn’t wait to play it.

Like the description says, you play two different characters – the first one is Rhys, voiced by Troy Baker (I’m not sure when he gets the time to do anything other than record voices for games, but he is very good at it and so its always a pleasure to listen to). As this is a spoiler free review I wont go into too many details about the plot, other than to say that Rhys was due a big promotion at Hyperion and he gets screwed out of it by his arch-nemesis, so he decides to screw him back.

fiona-smash-card

The second character is Fiona, voiced by Laura Bailey. Fiona is a grifter and part way through the episode you switch to playing her. Fiona and Rhys’s story is interwoven and it’s fun to watch them play off each other, but again, I don’t want to give too much away.

The gameplay style is what you would expect from Telltale – you have a number of options to choose from in different situations, and your selections will result in the story changing around you. There are also sections where you have to dodge attacks, and even target enemies (which is a whole heap of fun).

The first thing I noticed when the game started was just how much it felt like a Borderlands game. Now that might sound obvious, but I wasn’t sure if this would be a Telltale game with a Borderlands theme, or a Borderlands game with a Telltale interface. It’s actually the best of both worlds, with a typically insane and funny Borderlands story with all the gameplay you would expect from Telltale. I found the gameplay very smooth and the selections easy to choose, even easier than previous Telltale games.

loaderbot-v2

The graphics are typical Borderlands and I loved the humour. The voices are done really well, and along with Troy and Laura, Nolan North also makes an appearance, as does Dameon Clarke (spoiler – sort of!).

The first episode took about 2 and quarter hours to complete, and I am really looking forward to episode 2 in a few weeks time.

The cost of this episode is just $4.99 USD or equivalent or as part of a Season Pass package for all five episodes for just $24.99 USD or equivalent or less.

If you are a fan of either Telltale’s games or Borderlands, then this is a must for you. Now I just have to wait patiently for episode 2.

If you want to watch the first 30 minutes of episode 1, you can do so here.

With Destiny’s first expansion pack out this week, we have a Q&A with Eric Osborne (Urk), Community Manager at Bungie….

Destiny-The-Dark-Below-Expansion-Gets-More-Details-463737-2

· What is The Dark Below in a nutshell?

“The Dark Below is Destiny’s first expansion, offering players more content for every activity type in the wake of hundreds of post launch updates. It offers players new Legendary and Exotic weapons and armor, new story missions and quests, new levels to achieve, new Crucible maps, a new Strike, and a new Raid, set deep within the Hellmouth on the Moon.”

· What was the main inspiration behind this?

“We wanted to provide players with more of everything. We also wanted to react directly to what we saw players doing daily in Destiny.”

· What’s should people be most excited about?

“We know that new weapons and armor are going to go over really well with players. Their appetite for finding the latest and greatest Destiny gear is insatiable. We’re really excited about Eris, a new quest giver we’ve added to the Tower, who serves as the nucleus for all the Hive-themed adventures.”

· What new weapons and gear can we expect?

“All of the Legendary Weapons and Armor you can already find on Vendors will receive upgrades, alongside existing Exotics. We’re also introducing new Exotics, new Legendaries, and new Raid gear across the board. Eris has new bounties, new vanity items, and some fun new quests to go on, as well.”

· How soon after completing the game did the team start working on The Dark Below?

“We’re always trying to stay one step ahead, but work on The Dark Below didn’t officially wrap up until well after launch. We wanted to take the feedback and player behavior we were seeing and incorporate as much of it as possible into our first expansion.”

· What has most surprised/ excited you the most about people’s reaction to the game so far?

“How much they are playing, and how often. We have historical estimates we used to predict how players would take to Destiny that was based on a decade of supporting one of the more engaging action games out there. Players blew those estimates out of the water.”

· What’s next?

“Lots of fun! We’ll obviously be watching and listening the reaction to The Dark Below. Our sustain team is busy building out and testing a bevy of upcoming patches. Beyond that, we have some more content in the works, too, but it’s far too early to dig into the far flung future just yet.”

EA recently invited us to play some of the single player campaign for Battlefield Hardline.

Tyson_HandsUp

Back at E3 2014, EA announced Battlefield Hardline. This time, instead of being a military shooter, it was all about cops and robbers. They then proceeded to show off some multiplayer content, and offer people the chance to play multiplayer. But at the time they were being very quiet about the single player campaign, until now.

Developed by Visceral Games (of Dead Space 3 fame) Battlefield Hardline sees you playing Nick Mendoza, a cop on the streets on Miami trying to stop the spread of a drug called Hotshot. Your partner is Detective Khai (who looks like and is voiced by Kelly Hu) and together you both go in search of Hotshot. This is basically the tutorial level of the game.

One new cool piece of tech is the police scanner, which enables you to highlight and identify criminals, track them, listen to their conversations from afar and to also examine evidence. Not bad for a smartphone app! Searching for and examining evidence is a crucial part of the game and you cannot continue through a level unless you have found the relevant evidence.

Unlike previous Battlefield games, you don’t have to go all out shooting everyone if you don’t want to. In fact, you are rewarded for what is referred to in the game as Non-Lethal takedowns. This includes knocking out the bad guys and even using your Taser on them. You also have the ability to flash your badge and shout freeze, which results in most criminals dropping their guns and putting their hands up. But don’t be fooled, because you need to keep your gun trained on them until you have cuffed them, otherwise they will go for their guns and start shooting. The way to do handle these situations is to keep sweeping your gun between the criminals in front of you. You see a red bar indicating a threat and when you sweep your gun in that direction the threat disappears. Then you just take them down and cuff them.

Khai_Shot

Once I finished the first level we quickly jumped to the 9th level which takes place sometime after the events of the 1st level – EA have asked me not to spoil the story by revealing what happened, so let’s just say that Nick and Khai are no longer cops. This level sees us trying to gain access to a building in order to break into a vault. This building is heavily, and I do mean heavily guarded and this is where another of Hardlines new features comes into play – the ability to use multiple different ways to achieve your goal. In this case, to enter the building. You could go in the front all guns blazing, or you could sneak around the back, or why not do what I did and go across the street to the parking garage and zip line your way in? There are multiple different choices and it’s entirely up to you which one to take. The outcome may be the same but it gives you a choice.

Once inside my team had to fight their way through to the vault, and as usual it doesn’t go according to the plan. Here’s where the ability to choose different types of weapons, including trip mines comes in very handy. You get a few moments to place some traps before the next wave comes in and you have to fight to survive.

Without giving to much away the level ends with you having to escape the police – and there is a very funny moment when you crash through a window into a room full of cops and you quickly flash your badge and shout freeze (you may not be a cop anymore but you kept your badge) – and the expressions on the faces of the cops is priceless. It’s one of those blink and you miss it moments but it’s the sort of scene you would see in a buddy cop movie.

I really enjoyed my time with Battlefield Hardline and I can’t wait to play some more.

In the video below, we have around 5 minutes of gameplay from levels 1 and 9 – and don’t worry, we won’t spoil any of the story by telling you what happens between those levels, or really why we are doing what we are doing in level 9:

Battlefield Hardline will be released in March 2015.
