[Update: Vive Pro Announced, 2K Per Eye] HTC Vive Pro Leaked Following Vive 2 Speculations and Demand

Update: Vive Pro Announced, Built In Sound, 2K Per Eye, Wireless Sold Separately:

Below is a rumor post from before the announcement of the Vive Pro which contained rumors that the device would use 4K per Eye graphics technology. We now have the full announcement officially letting us know the following specs of the Vive Pro.

4K Graphics, but 2K Per Eye, Not what we expected but still a 37% increase in graphics capability – and rumored to get rid of “the screen door effect” by using a resolution of 2880 x 1600 per eye. The screens will now be OLED screens. Pixel Density is 615 pixels which is a 70% increase above the original Vive screens.

Sadly, Wireless will be sold separately still, although HTC did announce an Official Vive Wireless Adapter for both the HTC Vive and Vive Pro. For the first time, sound is built-in! The latest Vive controllers are expected to be included. It appears that foot tracking we wanted so badly to happen in a re-bundle of Vive just isn’t quite there yet either. While Lighthouse 2.0 technology is used for the Trackers that come with Vive Pro, a step up from Vive original trackers, the custom trackers we mentioned being crucial to open world gaming in our Vive 2 article will not be included. Despite not being quite what was expected, overall Vive Pro looks great and seeks to keep innovation going in the VR Gaming market.

Official Vive Pro Reveal Trailer:

Video Game Deals Ongoing Right Now [US] (Week of 1/7/2018)

Some are worried recently about Microsoft’s light lineup forecast for the year, with confusion around the lackluster launch of the Xbox One X. New Rumors have led to a persistent belief that Microsoft is currently shopping around IP to invest in to fix that problem. The company is searching for the right partner to create the next Xbox exclusive games through exclusivity contracts which have not been used much this console generation but were a major theme of the PlayStation 3 vs Xbox 360 console wars.

Currently there’s more than a handful of deals going on in the United States video games market. Everything from games to computer parts and even the consoles themselves have a discount one place or another. Perhaps it’s an after-shock from the New Year and Christmas, or maybe it’s in precedence of upcoming rumored hardware in the next few years. Either way, it’s always a great time to get deeper into gaming, and these deals offer up the chance for gamers to get more bang for their buck now.

A Closer Look: Vampyr from Dontnod Entertainment & Focus Home Interactive

Playing as a vampire yourself is an incredibly satisfying sounding gameplay proposition that looks as good as it sounds. Gamers found that much out recently at The Game Awards 2017 if they did not know it already, when the title was showcased as a New IP on the rise. Having seen the hero’s side of things far too often, this time players will walk the thin line between justified madness and darkness itself.

Dontnod Entertainment are best known for critically acclaimed Life Is Strange theory, which is a house favorite from Deputy Editor Tristan Werbe as well.

Best Multiplayer Game of the Year 2017 – The Game Awards

This category was perhaps one of the most crucial elements of the show. As, if Star Wars Battlefront 2 or Destiny 2 had been allowed to win, a gamer uprising against The Game Awards was likely imminent.

Geoff Keighley and staff continued to show grace with this year’s awesome show by being diplomatic in how they handled the situation. Although still somewhat controversial, their pick avoided an immeasurable backlash by siding with what the gamers wanted.

Nominees were as follows:

  • Destiny 2
  • Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
  • Splatoon 2
  • PlayerUnknown Battlegrounds
  • Fortnite
  • Call of Duty: World War II

Get Three Free PC Games Without Any Strings Attached

A little free game for the holidays in case nobody gets you anything – at least you’ll have that.

For the next 15 hours you can still get a free Steam key for Homefront through the Humble Bundle Store recently acquired by IGN…. but that’s a story for another day. Even if you don’t have a gaming computer right now, all you need is a Steam account and to create a free Humble Bundle account, then link the two together and receive this free game.

Homefront: Free for a Limited Time

Ubisoft is also giving away World in Conflict, a top-rated RTS game for free as we speak. Even if you don’t have disk space on your hard drive for now, you can still activate it with your account for playing at a later date similarly to Homefront’s deal above. There’s really no harm in stacking up free titles this way, and Ubisoft has been doing good things in the games industry as of late, so it’s guilt-free as well. All you have to do is download the UPlay app on your PC, it’s not even half as annoying as the Windows 10 Games Store (back from the dead GFWL… Tristan “just told me don’t even bring that up”.

World in Conflict – Complete Edition – Free (Ends December 11, 2017)

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag will be free December 12, 2017

Many people felt that Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag was the last actual good game in the franchise until Origins brought it back to stardom. “Origins doesn’t bring the series backwards to its roots either, but instead reinvents the wheel in a way that’s good for the series and feels like it realizes some of the original vision behind titles like Assassin’s Creed.”

“Obviously the setting is different in this new adventure, but it feels like the series always was supposed to be.” These are our currently flu-bound Deputy Editor Tristan Werbe’s words, Stay Tuned for the Full AC: Origins RealGamerNewZ Review & grab these free games.

Best Family Game of the Year 2017 – The Game Awards

With many proclaiming it as one of the best titles in the entire franchise, the company saving itself from walking off of a financial cliff was represented many times at The Game Awards this year. Rightfully so, Mario of Nintendo is to which we’re referring of course. After the Nintendo Wii U disaster of a platform we are met with a success for the Nintendo Switch and a reclaiming by Nintendo of what was once their own kingdom.

Super Mario Odyssey is the Best Family Game of the Year 2017. In this title Mario is able to take control of nearly anything in the game using his hat. Our own Deputy Editor Tristan Werbe is still preparing Nintendo Switch top lists but this one definitely made it with RGN stating “I found nothing wrong with it. It’s an incredible game.” as well as noting the title is a full installment versus the beta test feel of the 3D World titles. Check out raw, unedited, high quality gameplay of the Bowser’s Kingdom of Super Mario Odyssey below and catch a glimpse of what Nintendo Switch fans through all ages are loving.

Best Action Game of the Year 2017 – The Game Awards

With everything going into a very action-packed revival of The Game Awards, this was one category which as part of several  was crucially important for Geoff Keighley and peers of the game industry (over 51 media outlets and influencers voted as well as 50% weighted fan voting on many categories, with some completely chosen by fans) to get it right.  This time around it seems that The Game Awards wasn’t going to hold any punches and simply let the games rise above anything that could’ve possibly held them back.

There was even a jab made at EA by the award’s presenter, who claimed he needed to pay a micro-transaction on his mobile device before he was able to see the winner in his envelope. This was followed up by a statement claiming that micro-transactions are “really stupid” echoing the beliefs of gamers worldwide.

Since the release of the game most fans have taken to a liking the reboot of the Wolfenstein franchise started a short while back. With Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus timing was great for a single-player focused shooter to enter the realm and succeed.

Currently 50% off on Steam as part of The Game Awards 2017 Sales across all major gaming platforms, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus has won Best Action Game of the Year 2017. The title developed by MachineGames on id Tech 6 game engine and available on PC, PS4, Xbox, as well as Nintendo Switch beat out nominees such as Destiny 2, Cuphead, Nioh, and more.

Best VR Game of the Year 2017 – The Game Awards

Capcom is just like Square Enix in that they’ve had a troubled road in recent times but have gracefully recovered and regained their triumphant spot in Survival Horror. Fans were not very pleased with Resident Evil 6, and a few other business scandals Capcom found themselves woven into. All of that seems like such a distant past though, now that Resident Evil 7 has come to the franchise rescue and Capcom has regained their financial status as well with better business decisions.

Back in April of 2016 RealGamerNewZ rumored accurately that Resident Evil 7 would be a re-imagining of the series merging new age horror gaming elements with back-to-their-roots presentation and experience.

We also predicted that the game would utilize PlayStation VR as a way of bringing across this type of vibe. Today, we are proud to congratulate Capcom on their award as Best VR Game of the Year 2017 as bestowed upon them by The Game Awards. Check out some high quality gameplay footage for the game if you haven’t seen it yet after the fold.

WTF Wednesdays: “NAZI is not a valid word” – ??? – Words With Friends 2

Video game companies all over the world are subject to government regulations against free speech – some for good reason, others just for an unidentified purpose. While playing the mobile title Words With Friends 2 Online the other day it was discovered that “NAZI is not a valid word” according to the title which has players putting words like “Hod” or “Hi” and “Ta” in order to stack up points with words they really didn’t even know before playing the game.

On top of the title being a simple exercise in trial and error rather than actually testing the vocabulary of its players, now real words are not valid entries simply due to their controversial role in reality.

For this week’s WTF Wednesday stop and take a look at the country you live in, and name 3 games that have censored their content. In Germany, many students are not even taught about the existence of Adolf Hitler and the NAZI era of World War 2. Some say this is to prevent a low self-esteem issue while others claim it is to prevent repeating the past. In any event, most countries will not allow the Nazi Swastika symbol to appear in their video games despite the historical accuracy demanding such.
