‘Ryse: Son of Rome’ Multiplayer Video Doubles the gore

Reported By: KJ

Check out the Gladiator Coop mode in Ryse: Son of Rome, shown at this year’s Gamescom. Players must keep the crowd entertained. There are multiple ways you and a buddy can make this happen. I would hate to be the guy at the end of the clip. Just saying.

 Are you getting Ryse: Son of Rome at launch?

Xbox One: Initial Thoughts

xbox_p1_3

Reported By: Ms. Throwback

Microsoft announces the Xbox One today in a press conference showing us features like no other system to date. While some people aren’t impressed with the name I for one find it to be a good fit for the competition. With names like Wii U and PS4 the name has to be short and sweet. Xbox One is short and it says exactly what it wants you to do. Use it as an all in one console for all your entertainment needs. Lets break down the good and bad in the bullet points:

The Good:

  • Catchy easy to interpret name.
  • Kinect, Voice Recognition, and Google Glass features.
  • Amazingly useful and simple interface. Literal flick of the wrist or spoken words work the entire thing.
  • Updated sports stats in game from live sporting events. True to life in game weather and wear and tear.
  • BluRay
  • Amazing Hyper-visuals. Did we doubt it?
  • Microsoft is focusing on exclusives with 15 titles.

Questionable:

  • Are Kinect and Google Glass in the box? If so we are looking at one heck of a price point.
  • Hardware looks like a Wii U except humongous! We wish they had more inspiration.
  • I might use xbox to turn my tv on for another system, if i pick up my Wiimote im tempted to play it. This is a lost opportunity for Xbox.
  • Hopefully xbox is smarter than Siri.

Xbox definitely took some notes from Nintendo and added some spice of their own. we still have to see how the interface and recognition work together but if they work like they were shown this is a worldwide game changer…literally. While there is no doubt about the graphical power of this generation of Xbox, gamers expect more content. Now that our eye candy can’t get much better the challenge is on. Will Xbox match our expectations? We have to wait for E3 to find out, but if the first round of EA sports titles and Forza show us anything it’s that the potential is endless. Now about that price point?

Mo Chocolate’s Three Worst Controllers of All Time

Real Talk By: Mo Chocolate

One of the accessories in the gaming industry that is not talked about enough or I feel is not being talked at all about, is one of the most important parts to any video game console. The Controller. It’s what’s allows the gamer and the game to bond together as one. It’s the link between both of them. For some reason the controller is not talked about much by gamers or industry professionals. When it is discussed about, it’s usually how much everyone hates it. Continue reading “Mo Chocolate’s Three Worst Controllers of All Time”
