RGN Week In Review – April 18, 2015 (A Totally New Format, Experimental Launch #1)

RGN Week In Review - Post Easter Hiatus

Hey RealGamerNewZ Fans! In case you didn’t get a chance to check us out this week, here’s all the best posts in one spot! As you know, we often do Podcasts at the end of the week, but not every week. So we are working on a new experimental system that will allow us to display the best News, Reviews, and other posts we had during the week while you were gone. This way, even if we don’t get a chance to Podcast about the Week In Review, there will still be a way to keep up with everything we’ve got going on in the form of a post. If the text below is gibberish or some kind of code error, please check back later!

This is the first time testing our new system. 🙂 Thanks in advance for being cool and understanding. Hope you’re all playing some amazing games, I just picked up H1Z1 on Steam and got my eye on DayZ Standalone – and I’ve been playing lots of GTA V on Steam as well as I Am Bread, Dirty Bomb, Halo: Spartan Strike, that Killing Floor 2 Beta, and I forget what else. Man, so much good stuff in gaming right now! The drought is over!!! And it’s only going to get crazier and crazier from here on out.

Week In Review – Post Easter Hiatus

RGN Week In Review - Post Easter Hiatus

We’re back from our brief Easter Holiday Vacation and we share our opinions on the goings on of the past week including The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and what we think of it so far, Black Ops 3 and everything there is to know about it up to this point, Not A Hero from Devolver Digital + Roll7 and its current exclusivity to Steam, WB Games and Capcom arguing on Twitter over whether Mortal Kombat has more lifetime sales or Street Fighter (more like WB Games getting called out for false advertising the MK series in general, just by a hair), and our own confirmation that Yes, H1Z1 is still coming to PS4 (eventually), as well as some very inspiring news from the world of Tech as a brighter future approaches.

These stories and more in today’s RGN Week In Review. Sources can be found below the video.

Week In Review: Zelda Wii U Delayed To 2016 + More Gamer News

RGN Week In Review - Friday March 27

Nintendo has made a move, and while it might not be one that you agree with we hope that it’s a move which will result in a better game. Surely they are feeling the pressure and hype of Zelda Wii U building and now have announced today that it won’t be at E3 2015 and will not release until some time during 2016. In addition to that, in yesterday’s RGN Daily News #73 Jon spoke about Halo Online which is coming to PC only in Russia only, and the other high order News stories of the day. RGN Daily News will return on Monday but for now give this Week In Review a look if you want all the important stuff run down.

Week In Review Videocast:

Pax East 2014 : DJ Killzown Jones – Recap

PaxEast1

The Penny Arcade Expo is an event that was put together in 2004 by Penny Arcade to showcase and celebrate all things gaming with the general public which up until that time industry events rarely did. The first event dubbed Pax Prime took place in Seattle Washington and since then has spread around the country and abroad. Pax has become one of the largest gaming events in the world with each one selling out the previous event. Pax East was founded in 2010 and in 2012 it was announced that the Expo will stay in Boston Massachusetts until the year 2023.

This year Pax East was once again held in the heart of downtown Boston at the Boston Expo and Convention Center last week beginning Friday April 11th and ending on Sunday April 13th 2014. It was my first trip to Boston and I was accompanied by RGN Camera Person Lady Killzown to help cover the event.

PaxEast2

We departed from Saint Louis Missouri on Wednesday April 10th and arrived in Boston around noon, checking into our hotel a day early to explore the city as well as learn how to navigate to and from the convention center. The following day the expo had begun and there were a wealth of companies in attendance for the 10th anniversary of the expo. There were many triple AAA studios such as Ubisoft, Bethesda, 2K, Square Enix, and Blizzard with even more independent game makers such as Devolver Digital, Tribute Games and others who were placed on the massive expo floor for eager gamers to explore.

There were other companies such as Wizard of The Coast, Hyperkin, Twitch, Cartoon Network, Skullcandy, Astro, Turtle Beach, and a plethora others who were showcasing their new games, products and merchandise to public as well as conducting tournaments out of their booths. There many panels that were conducted outside the show floor during event with the Penny Arcade Crew, Gaming Personalities, companies, websites and others representing their video game communities held during all three days of the expo. These panels offered new information on newly released and upcoming games such as Titanfall and Heroes of the Storm, fun crowd oriented panels and finally dealt with the social and technical issues that the gaming community faces today.

PaxEast3

In rear of the convention center there was a arcade center where gamers can play basically any console that had been released if it was available and a table top center where gamers could play board games, trading card games, and more. There was also a PC stable made by the many pc hardware companies that were advertising on the floor allowing players to access their Steam libraries and play their games on the best hardware available.

Cosplayers were also in full effect coming from both near and far to showcase their creations on the show floor and the ones we saw had put in a lot of work and effort into their costumes. The Main Theater and Jam Space hosted concerts for NerdCore, Chiptune, Chip-Hop Artist as well as other video game music artist like MC FrontALot, Mega Ran, Metroid Metal and others took to the stage and performed in front a packed house.

PaxEast4

There were many developers and new games at Pax East showcasing their new titles. The go to go to Triple A titles was Bethesda’s Wolfenstein and 2K’s Evolve with lines that were almost all the way out of the door and after a few hours had to be “Perma-capped” or cut off for safety reasons as well as to insure people can play the games. The Indie presence was huge and many of the games we’re fun to play and very polished. We got to check out Rumble Jungle, Chroma Squad, Secret Ponchos, Gods Will Be Watching, and so many other titles coming soon this year.

We’ve done a lot of networking with the developers on the show floor and we hope to work with to bring RGN fans more new and exciting content in the coming months. Pax East 2014 was all in all amazing, I recommend that anyone who is a gamer attend any of Penny Arcade’s upcoming events including this years Pax Prime and on behalf of RGN I would like to thank all that were involved in organizing the event for inviting RealGamerNewz to come out and to cover the event.

RGN Week In Review: Half-Life 3 = Hoax, Portal 3 Trademarked!

RGN Week in Review - Half Life 3 Hoax Portal 3 Trademarked

This Week In Review ends up being much more than a typical rundown of the weeks events as we also get in depth with our views on certain topics ranging from company’s personal histories such as Respawn Entertainment, Silicon Knights, the games that they make, whether or not franchises like Final Fantasy should just drop the name for some of the less recognizable projects and form New IP instead, as well as whether or not Valve should ever attempt a Half-Life 3 since they have already peaked the franchise with HL2 and would likely just disappoint (similarly to how SquareSoft peaked Final Fantasy franchise with the FF6, FF7, FF8 games (exactly when it peaked the most is depending on which is your favorite).

There’s also a lot more topics and we go over everything that happened throughout the week in case you didn’t have time to keep up with it as it was released. Oh, and we even give you guys a lesson on how the entire fanboy war began and how great life was before it. 🙂
