Totally bogus, dude! Wipeout. Sick meaning poorly, not sick meaning wicked (and that's wicked meaning good, not wicked meaning bad). Vita-exclusive 2D trick skater OlliOlli has been delayed from this year into 2014, developer Roll7 announced today, due to one wee problem with its daily challenge mode 'Daily Grind.'
Ho ho ho! What does Father PlayStation have in his bulging sack for boys and girls who've behaved well by ponying up for PlayStation Plus membership? December will bring another five free games to PlayStation 3 and Vita, Sony has announced, including Borderlands 2 and Dyad. Plus membership is 40% off for Black Friday in some stores, too.
What are you most thankful for? If it's the God-Emperor who guides and protects humanity from his Golden Throne, you may want to see the first trailer for Warhammer 40,000: Space Wolf. Developer HeroCraft has given a teensy little peek at its turn-based tactics 'em up, which also has collectible card game bits.
Indie studio Logic Artists (Expeditions: Conquistador) is about to take players back to the 90's with a new spy thriller called Clandestine. As the title might imply, the game will focus on stealth and feature asymmetrical co-op gameplay between a field agent and a hacker.
Full Control's Space Hulk releaesd on PC and Mac to some decidedly lukewarm reviews, but the game continues to roll on strong with a new iPad version of the classic Warhammer 40,000 board game set to deploy on December 5. Better yet, this iOS version will be able to play with PC and Mac owners, as well.
With Killzone: Shadow Fall taking up most of the attention for its arrival on PS4, it's easy to forget that Vita got a Killzone title of its own earlier this year. But Guerrilla Cambridge hasn't forgotten their handheld shooter and will offer free content for Killzone: Mercenary's multiplayer in the coming months.
David Craddock has been a part of Shacknews for many years, as both a writer and as a part of the Chatty community. He most recently released the first book of Stay Awhile and Listen: How Two Blizzards Unleashed Diablo and Forged a Video-Game Empire, his labor of love chronicling the creation of Diablo and the evolution of Blizzard Entertainment.
Mr. Craddock was happy to offer a bit of a post-mortem for the first part of his trilogy, which is available now through the Google Play store, Nook shop, and Amazon. He also offers some insights on his time at Shacknews and how much the community's feedback has been instrumental to the making of his book.
Forza Motorsport 5's in-game economy has been a hotly-contested topic since the game's release. The topic is a particularly sore one to Limited Edition owners, who were promised that their 1,250 car tokens would be enough to buy any car in the game. Turn 10 and Microsoft are now attempting to extend somewhat of an olive branch to users, offering boosts for Forza Rewards members and giving Limited Edition owners their choice of car.
Yes, it's that time of year again. If recent episodes of South Park haven't convinced you that stepping into a retail store this Friday is a fool's errand, you're probably all excited to fight for the best deals. The launch of two new consoles means some nice bargains on the older ones, along with games on the cheap.
There's no sensation quite like stepping behind the wheel of a new car for the first time. You never forget the first time you rev your new ride's engine and, likewise, I won't forget the first time I took control of my first car in Forza Motorsport 5. Developer Turn 10's Xbox One launch title comes across as a true passion project, seamlessly combining many of the racing genre's best qualities.
First impressions are everything, and Forza 5 wastes no time in dazzling with its crisp, luminescent visuals. I'm not a car junkie by any means, but the attention to detail and the Top Gear narration made it hard not to become one.
