We weren’t expecting to hear any news until this morning at 10:00am EST, but it seems we’ve been gifted with an early confirmation! Fallout 4 has been announced!!

If you’re like me, I’ve been waiting for this news for forever!

The site went live earlier today with a photo and stating that Fallout 4 will be coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC.

From the website, it also looks like we’ll be finding out more about Fallout 4 at E3.

Are you excited to see what more we might see at 10:00am EST? What do you think they’ll show at E3?

Sims4_Create_a_Sim

No GravatarElectronic Arts granted the Sims 4 Create a Sim Demo to some fans who signed up last month.  If you were not lucky enough to get the demo, here are some things that you can look forward to when the full game comes out September 2:

Performance

I ran the demo on my laptop without any issue.  It is an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook with an AMD A6-34200M with an integrated graphics card and six GB of memory.  This is the same device in which I typically play Sims 3, though I definitely cannot turn up the graphics.  The laptop is nothing fancy, especially for gaming, but it was able to chew right through the Sims 4 demo without any issues (I also was also toggling back and forth between social media sites, a couple of Microsoft Word documents, and the demo).  I did notice that the game automatically set me to the lowest graphics and put me in a “laptop mode,” so I’m assuming that it will look awesome on a much better computer.  Overall, I thought the demo was very stable.  There were no hiccups or bugs to report and everything actually ran very smoothly.  I was impressed, considering how slow Sims 3 Create a Sim works.  However, this is also with every expansion packet included.

If you are wondering if your computer will play Sims 4, here is the official minimum requirements from EA.

This is the Sim I designed, based off of myself in the lowest graphics setting.  It still looks great.

 Ease of Use

The sliders of the past are now gone.  Sims 4 utilizes a more natural approach to creating a Sim by allowing the player to click on a part of a Sim and working from there.  Of course, there are pre-set body types, faces, and whatnot, but you can still customize a Sim without a lot of hassle.  I was easily able to choose traits and create a Sim without looking at a tutorial or feeling lost for very long.  I felt like most of it was very intuitive.  I was also able to quickly create the Sim that I wanted without a lot of issues.  Overall, I was impressed with how this demo functioned, and I hope the rest of the game feels the same way.

Just click on the body part you want to modify.  The game is very intuitive.

Cool Stuff

Although there aren’t a ton of hairstyles and outfits (not sure if this is what we’ll get with the real game or if this is just for the demo), there was enough to feel like a “full” game.  I was able to create a cool character  with the selection of traits, styles, and clothing, which is all I really care about at this point.  One of the coolest aspects of the demo was the introduction to the gallery, which looked to be in full swing already.  I was able to upload my created Sim to the gallery and look at other people’s Sims as well.  If I chose to use someone else’s Sim as my own, it was easy to select it and place it in my own game.

Traits or "aspirations" did not have as large a list as Sims 3, but it still had a really good selection to get your Sim's personality right.

I was starting to get a little disheartened over some of the news I had heard about Sims 4 (i.e. no toddlers, no cars, not an open world), but if the rest of the game is anything like the Create a Sim Demo, I think the game will be alright.

 

Batman v Superman

No GravatarWonder Woman

The casting choice for Wonder Woman in Superman v. Batman: Dawn of Justice was met with a lot of skepticism. Gal Gadot was an interesting choice to play Wonder Woman to say at the very least.

With this picture, I think Zack Snyder quieted many of those that were upset by the choice. Gal Gadot definitely stepped up to the plate as Wonder Woman!

AMC revealed a Season 5 trailer for The Walking Dead at San Diego Comic Con.

I don’t know about anyone else, but this trailer gets me excited for the new season. Although I’ve been iffy on the show this trailer gives me a lot of hope for the new season with a lot of odes to the comics.

The Walking Dead is set to return on Sunday, October 12th at 9pm on AMC.

What do you think of the trailer? Let us know in the comments!

MGS5

No Gravatar

At 3 A.M. PDT Thursday, June 19, Konami released a 30 min. gameplay trailer of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The gameplay trailer is the same demo that was on display at this years E3. The trailer will be in English and shown on Kojima Station.

The Phantom Pain technically takes place after the most recent release of Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes, but if you’re familiar with the Metal Gear series you know the games were released in anything but a linear order.

If you’re thinking of playing the Metal Gear series to “catch up” to this release you have more than enough time as MGSV: The Phantom Pain does not yet have a release date and isn’t expected to come out this year.

Here’s a link for the live stream currently going on on YouTube.

[Update] Seems the video has been taken down.
[Update 2] Found a new video!
[Update 3] Made some .gifs for when it gets taken down again.

 

 

Here’s some leaked footage of Bloodborne pre-E3. Before the E3 reveal Bloodborne was called Project beast  and had some scene’s leaked on other occasions as well. From the looks of things it will definitely have the look and feel of the previous Souls game regardless of the gun. Considering it’s “leaked” footage it may be taken down soon.

In case you missed the E3 reveal here’s it’s trailer.
