download (8)

According to express.co.uk the release dates for both Crackdown 3 (Friday june 29th) and State of decay (Friday May 25th) have been leaked on Spanish Amazon tho Microsoft has yet to make an official statement at the time of me writing this. This would actually be a pretty huge leak that many people would be excited for, however I would take this with a huge grain of salt as many of these leaks are simply placeholder dates. But heres hoping. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Xbox Finally outsells PlayStation this holiday?

As the title asked, did Xbox for the first time outsell Sony this holiday season? I won’t bore you to much and drag this out. according to comicbook.com the answer is yes, but there is a small catch. The Nintendo Switch beat them both. This has actually come as a surprise to many people on all fronts, myself included. Nintendo in recent years even tho the Wii was massively successful struggled with the Wii U. That being said it is great to see all 3 consoles selling so well, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dark Souls Remastered

Well the title says a lot. The following video will say much more.

 

Now the video and the title will say a lot, but there is more info out there. For example there is a trilogy box set that comes with Dark Souls one ,two and three along with a ton of other stuff like art books, book ends and other assorted items, and all for the low low price of $450 (American) Now that won’t be in the cards for me and the sooner than expected release date of May 25th.

What does the remaster include? Well 1080 graphics on the PlayStation and Xbox one as well as upscaled 4K graphics on the One X and Pro with native 4K on the PC. I do have some concerns tho, the original dark souls was damn near broken at times and it basically required manipulating broken hit boxes and camera angles as opposed to actual skill. Dark Souls 2 to a lesser extent had a similar problem but Scholar of the First Sin fixed those amazingly, and I really hope the remaster of DS1 does the same. I am personally excited but optimistic. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

There is no quick answer to this question, but maybe. But that is a question many people have been asking lately it seems. Belgium Justice Minister seems to believe it is, tho Translations seem to be a bit off and there has been an update to the story that can be found here.

Hawaii Rep. Chris Lee also wants to fight what he calls “predatory behavior” more on that can be found here.

Now i’m not sure gambling is the right word, but I can understand the argument. You are spending money and may or may not receive something of equal value. On the flip side of things you will get something for your money so is it really a true gamble? This is definitely an interesting thing to watch. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Kerbal On Consoles Finally Fixed?

Is Kerbal Space Program finally fixed? Well not quite, but news this week from their official update at http://kerbaldevteam.tumblr.com/post/167097693084/ksp-weekly-expedition-1 reveals it will be by the end of January 2018.

Now I will admit, I am jaded. The game is fun even in its current and broken state. Waiting over a year for it to be fixed has been very frustrating to say the least, however recently seeing why the wait should be worth it.

Blitworks was brought in to essentially rebuild the game on console from the ground up and the loud and clear update to it as well. The real question is will this be worth the wait, and will it finally be fixed? Hopefully we will see soon. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
