    Microsoft's HoloLens will feature Xbox Live and ID@Xbox support With Microsoft's Gamescom press conference mere hours away, little bits of news are starting to pop up here and there that they didn't deem worth making part of the main conference. From the looks of it, some additional HoloLens functionality has been announced to help kick off the day. Announced during yesterday's GDC Europe talk "One game across PC, Phone, Xbox, and HoloLens", it was announced that the API for Windows Live will not only be supported on Xbox One and Windows 10, but also Windows Phone and the Hololens. The idea here is that ID@Xbox developers should be able[…]

  • This new Mad Max trailer is kinda awesome

    This new Mad Max trailer is kinda awesome Warner Bros. has dropped an all-new Mad Max trailer.  This video gives us a glimpse of what to expect at the various "fortified garrisons, or strongholds, located throughout the open world of the post-apocalyptic Wasteland." There are guns and cars and fightin' and sand and more cars and desert and more guns and extra fightin' and it is glorious.  I feel so bad for people who don't play games. Also, I totally recognised T.R. Knight's voice (George from Grey's Anatomy) in the trailer which made me tear up about McDreamy all over again. Sniff. Mad Max: Fury Road releases for PC, PlayStation[…]

    The Lord of the Rings Online shuts down most of its worlds Looks like The Lord of the Rings Online hasn’t been in the best shape recently. Developer Turbine has announced it will be closing all but five of the worlds for each region. The only worlds that will be remaining open in the US are: Arkenstone, Crickhollow, Landroval, Gladden, and Brandywine; while those staying open in the EU are: Belegaer, Gwaihir, Sirannon, Laurelin, and Evernight. Players will be able to transfer their characters over to one of the remaining worlds (bar Brandywine, that one’s full). According to Turbine, this transfer will work “indefinitely”, so there is no need to rush. This[…]

  • Assassin's Creed screenshots matched up to the real world

    Assassin's Creed screenshots matched up to the real world Tumblr user Haricotkenway recently went on a trip around Europe, and has managed to line up screenshots from Assassin’s Creed with the real-life equivalent of the famous landmarks. While the idea may not be new, I still never get bored of these and I always love when new ones pop out. Seeing the level of detail the developers put into making sure the buildings look realistic is amazing, even if other parts (like the entirity of Unity) are less polished. You can take a look at the pictures below, or on Haricotkenway's tumblr page. Read more...
