Rocket League developer talks about Crossplay and it what it means

3008063-rocketleague_xbox_2016_8

As we know now, Rocket League is coming to the Nintendo Switch, and will support crossplay features with Xbox One, and PC. Jeremy Dunham the Vice President of Psyonix stated that crossplay increase the longevity of these types of games. He stated that “I think without cross-network play you’re almost holding back the advancement of games in a way.” He went into further detail in his interview with IGN, but this statement summarizes his thoughts. I agree of course, as it does seem to help these sorts of games, and allows people across platforms to play with another. What do you think?

Beyond Good and Evil 2 Trailer Breakdown, Platforms Confirmed

beyond-good-and-evil-2-space-monkey-program-bevestigt-platformen-113331-1

The creator of Rayman, Rabbids, and of course Beyond Good and Evil, Michael Ancel. He goes into depth about the trailer of the game, and the story, some of the characters, and gameplay elements we can expect. Beyond Good and Evil 2 has also been confirmed for PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC no release date clearly. The game has been in development for 3 years, those years focusing heavily on the technology behind the game. With no word on a release schedule, my bets are Fall 2019 by the earliest, hopefully 2018 but doubtful. But we will see, depending on the technology and the team, it could come out sooner. Stay tuned at RGN for everything Beyond Good and Evil 2.

What Bethesda’s Creation Club means

creation_club.0

As we all know by now, at E3 Bethesda announced their new system Creation Club. Which provides new paid content for Fallout 4 and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. Or how Bethesda put’s it from their own Creation Club page “Creation Club is a collection of all-new content for both Fallout 4 and Skyrim. It features new items, abilities, and gameplay created by Bethesda Games Studios and outside development partners including the best community creators. Creation Club content is fully curated and compatible with the main game and official add-ons.”

The way I see this is more of a lie. They are claiming these are more like DLC or Expansions, but they are having modders release this content. They are selling people mods. Now I don’t see the biggest issue with it, aside from them lying about it. As long as the mods are up to par with “DLC quality content.” From the launch lineup I would not say it is quality or worth your hard earned cash. As it is mainly weapons and apparel you can just download for free elsewhere. The content the Creation Club can provide is “Weapons, Apparel, World, Characters, Creatures, and Gameplay.”

Weapons, Apparel, Creatures, and Characters speak for themselves. But World is more akin to locations, like new maps, some added foliage, so maybe some texture updates, and even simple decorations. Gameplay is explained as “New types of gameplay like survival mode, etc.” So maybe some actual new additions, Fallout Kart Racing?

Now the content that should be produced, should be something like expansions, think the Dragonborn Expansion, which adds a new location, new storyline, new weapons, outfits, gameplay features, etc. That is what Bethesda should offer, instead of a new gun or sword by themselves for $1.99. As of now we can’t say how it will turn out, but if they are going to do this, and the content creators are going to get paid to produce high quality content, then we as consumers need to hold them to an example of producing good “DLC” (Mods).

I am all for this if it is genuine content that continues the life of games people love like Fallout 4 and Skyrim. But this could set a awful precedent in the industry if mishandled like Bethesda’s previous attempt at paid mods. One of the biggest things was they were not curated mods, this time they are, or least should be, since the modders/content creators will be paid and employees after they apply for the Creation Club, and are accepted. Let’s just hope they can manage this, and their store won’t be filled with paid horse armor that’s purely cosmetic.

The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare – Review

The Mean Greens Logo

 

 

“The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare” is a 3rd Person Online Multiplayer Shooter from Virtual Basement and Code Headquarters Inc. for the PC and soon to be released on the Xbox One and PS4. In this game players are once again asked to choose a side Green or Tan as the did in the  classic 3DO Army Men Games & Signal Studios Toy Soldiers: War Chest but in a whole new way. When players jump into The Mean Greens they will be pitted against 9 other players in 5V5 online skirmishes with ten game modes spread across the game’s ten maps which provided a refreshing twist to game modes like “Team Deathmatch” and “Capture The Flag”. These battles are played out in areas around your house; the kitchen, the bathroom, the bedrooms, the freezer and everywhere in between and in The Mean Greens even in these place that you are familiar with you still will feel like you are going to war in a place you never seen before.

The combat In The Mean Greens is very lighthearted yet very visceral on the battlefield. When players touch down on the map they will have instant access to a machine gun, a sniper rifle, a shotgun, a RPG and finally a flamethrower but good aim is key. Players that think that they won’t need to be quick on the sticks will have their plastic comrade biting the dust more often than not if they’re caught slacking. The one thing players will love about The Mean Greens is that  here is next to no lag with the dedicated servers, so no one will ever feel cheated when it their toy soldier goes home to the big plastic bucket in the sky. The rolling mechanic will save a soldier’s life and will get the player out sticky situations fairly quickly.  The player can also with correct timing turn the rolling mechanic into parry and return fire to dispatch the opposition. The combat is very fast pace and rewarding as players and their squad mates scrambling to complete objectives like lighting birthday Candles,raising their flag to claim all the cookies among other wacky missions.
The Mean Greens Screens 1
There are only a few things that may damper the amazing experience that is The Mean Greens one is the jump mechanic and another being aiming. The mouse or the thumbsticks if you playing with a control is automatically set in free aim mode, you can tweak the settings to fix this but then couple it with the jumping it can really be a pain because you have to focus on where you are jumping before you do so or else you will slide off the area you planned off jumping on. Players will have to spend some time adjusting and finding the best way to move around the level but combat is so fun and so addictive that they will want to master all the controls in now time to help out their squads during matches.  The only other problem with The Mean Greens is there is no single player campaign or scenario mode for gamers to play offline which some players may find as a deal breaker but others may not in this new gaming climate. The game has what some may call “OMG” or “One More Game” theory where players will play skirmish after skirmish without realizing that hours has passed. If one were to use a website like “Steam Spy” you will see that the “OMG” theory is in full effect and players are having a lot of fun playing with these plastic heroes.
The Mean Greens Screens 2
The Mean Greens Maps will remind you of how amazing watching the “Toy Story” films and the feeling of into going into a Chuck E Cheese or Dave and Busters for the same time.The look and feel of the game is crisp and clean due to Virtual Basements imaginative use of Epic Game’s Unreal Engine 4, players will know these characters, maps, environments and sets pieces from Toys, Food, and Appliances from around their house but will feel like they are in a whole new world during their play sessions. These Maps are accompanied by epic tunes inspired by old school war songs like the “Battle Hymn Of The Republic” or “Yankie Doodle” and sound effects straight out of films like “Apocalypse Now” and “Full Metal Jacket”  If you enjoy war games and welcome a playful and imaginative settings The Mean Greens is just right for you. If you on the fence about the game due to its “Online Only” status don’t be these will be the easiest and best $9 to $15 you will spend on Steam this month with all the big releases still yet on the horizon please do not  sleep on Virtual Basement’s Ultimate Tour De Toy Chest.

Final Verdict:

The Mean Greens: Plastic Warfare is fun filled 3rd Person Action Online Multiplayer Game the really breathes live into the Army Men game genre without being an Army Men game. Players who can take the time to master the challenging control system and get over the fact that the game is online only will be in for a highly addictive experience where their house is literally the battlefield and toys can still be their soldiers.

Michonne

A new episodic Batman video game wasn’t the only thing Telltale showed off at The Game Awards 2015. The award winning studio also revealed that their upcoming three part mini-series starring Michonne, will now release in February of next year instead of this month.

Michonne 2

When it was first announced, Telltale Games stated that players would be required to have at least completed the first episode of The Walking Dead: Season Two, in order to play the mini-series. Now that will no longer be the case as Telltale’s Head of creative Communications, Job Stauffer has confirmed via Twitter, that Michonne “will now be a stand-alone series”.

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Game being Developed by PlatinumGames

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It appears PlatinumGames is currently working on a new video game starring everyone’s favorite sewer dwelling heroes. The Australian Classification Board recently posted a rating for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan, citing violence, mild themes and very mild language as reasons for its ‘M’ rating. Bear in mind an Australian ‘M’ rating is the equivalent to a ‘T’ rating in North America, so no need to become worried about it being too much for the young ones.

The game will apparently run on multiple platforms (No surprise) and feature online interactivity, hopefully 4-player co-op.

TMNT2

This marks the third licensed video game Platinum has developed for Activision, with The Legend of Korra and Transformers: Devastation being the previous two.

Stay tuned for more info.
