Mass Exodus: Bioware veterans quitting among rumored Anthem problems

Yet another one of Bioware’s founding fathers has left the game development studio behind titles like EA’s Mass Effect and the upcoming Anthem. The studio once held a good reputation in the industry for its story-tellers and RPG design experts, but their image slowly slid until most gamers began to view their titles as mediocre at best. Scores came in lower each time a new game was released with Dragon Age II, Mass Effect 3, and Mass Effect Andromeda standing out as some of their least enjoyed and lowest rated products.

This problematic scenario has caused many fans to believe that Anthem is something EA Games forced Bioware to create, seeing it as a ‘games-as-a-service’ product built for greedy cash-in functionality similar to other hollow titles EA has produced recently. This is based on evidence, not conspiracy, since Visceral Games was forced to create Battlefield: Hardline and their Dead Space IP was killed. Most fans also fear that if Anthem doesn’t turn out to be an extremely profitable project, EA Games will shut down the studio as they have with so many others before; most recently Visceral Games following the failure for Dead Space 3 to reach unrealistic goals set by EA.

Now, amid rumors that Anthem is seeing problems in development, the people who helped make Bioware what it is today are leaving. It’s understandable that those who remain a part of this company fear for their jobs and face unreasonable stress every day. After all, EA responded to Mass Effect Andromeda’s reception by immediately liquidating Bioware Montreal – an offshoot of the studio that was meant to expand its production capabilities and recruit new talent from the massive Montreal game development community.

Destiny 2 leaked, coming in September (Rumor)

destiny-2

Destiny 2 may launch on September 8, according to a poster for the game that has of course appeared on reddit and at the Italian gaming site named Lega. In an earnings call earlier this year, Activision stated the game is coming out in 2017 but no release date, or time frame. The first game came out back in September of 2014, and many of Bungie’s past games such as Halo 3 and Halo Reach have also released in the September time frame. Time will tell if this rumor holds true but we will cover any future updates on this.

Destiny Hard Mode Crota Isn’t As Hard As It Looks..

destiny_by_ecodigital-d5vuqdx

Bungie finally released the hard mode raid the Crota’s End on January 22. The top five contenders finish this battle in under one hour,very impressive. My raid team didn’t complete this fight in under a hour but we did complete the whole raid in under three hours and for the first part of the troll cave you are capable of receiving a 32 gauntlet,shards a pulse rifle or even a auto rifle. These rewards aren’t guaranteed so you can escape with a just shards. The second part of the raid is basically the bridge pretty easy once you practice it on normal .But a bit hard if you never did this legit. So if your just wondering how you do this I’ll explain this in steps.

Always send the titans over the bridge first due to the fact that if they have the helm of the saint 14 they can go across the bridge,drop the sword place the ward of the dawn on the gatekeeper that could blind him and you can pick up the sword and bash him. if you don’t have the helm then which to striker class and use flash grenades. There will be knights that will be shooting you down, just be careful. Make sure you give people there roles so nobody is lost and run around like a chicken with there head cut off. Once everybody is across then half the team push right side with gjallahorn three shots will kill the ogre on the right . Then push the same people to the left side and take out the ogre (gjallahorn isn’t a must but is the most effective weapon). Once the ogre are down then the loot drops which can be chest armor, leg armor pulse rifle and assault rifle. The next step is the deathsinger there’s a trick to this and the trick is if you complete this on normal then you will not get no rewards on hard so the best thing to do is complete it on normal so you can skip it to hard. So once you beat the deathsinger have a friend save the checkpoint on Crota so you can do this on all your guardians.

So once you get to Crota himself you need allot of teamwork and communication. The loot that drops is a shader that glows in the dark, a badass ship, crux of the Crota, a hand cannon, scout rifle, or an exotic. Check out the video below to see the communication and teamwork and a great way how to defeat Crota himself.

Destiny RealGamerNewz New Game Modes DLC 1

Dual Duel

-is a new 2 versus 2 double skirmish competitive multiplayer mode announced by Bungie and will be available for the week in Crucible. Jump in with one of your best friends, fam, or partners and get your game on as a two man army with Level Advantages Disabled, Small Team Tactics, and the ability to Revive your team mate. Why are we doing this? Because New Monarchy seeks those capable of reclaiming the frontier, one battle at a time, that’s why.

Our New Monarchy will be established soon to usher in the next Era, so get ready for the first experimental game mode from Destiny to celebrate the beginning of a series of experimental game modes which will be released soon according to Lars Bakken (Lead Designer at Bungie) who also gave a few more hints about what to expect in Dual Duel, calling it “a slower burn with more explosive pockets.”

 

  • Doubles is the first experiment
  • More New theoretical game modes coming soon
  • Two Guardian Fireteams
  • Heavy ammo appears once a match

  • “Space Magic will be at a premium. Use it wisely for the big plays. The most you’ll ever score is a Double Down, so make it count.” – Bungie

Hyped games blinding gamers?

There are so many great games that have released and are set to release this year on both PS4 and Xbox ONE but as new IPs emerge from underneath older IPs some of these games slip into the back of the gamer’s minds by the time they are set to release. Game franchise IPs such as COD are currently overshadowing a game that, in my opinion, looks fantastic and that is Sunset Overdrive. The current game set to release in the COD franchise “Advanced Warfare” has taken away a majority of the excitement that people should be getting for Sunset Overdrive, the Xbox ONE exclusive. Is Sunset Overdrive going to be an exceptional game? Only time will tell.

For now, check out our Reviewer’s thoughts here or our new Sunset Overdrive 1080P Gameplay Playlist. However, the lack of attention and marketing that it has received thus far is ridiculous. This game is set to release tomorrow October, 28th and maybe a handful of commercials have been aired. Has this game been overshadowed and overlooked?

We always hear about the COD’s, Assassin’s Creeds, NBA 2K’s, or Madden’s. But, what about the games that have quietly released and turned out to be fantastic? Games such as Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor, Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare, and Rayman Legends came out with little hype and were well overshadowed by the likes of the next gen ports and familiar IPs. It’s a constant battle for new games to make a name for themselves or a place in a gamer’s collection when they are being shutout.

Another game that received a bunch of hype from the time of its announcement, and overshadowed a great game in the same month it was released, was Destiny. Much like most gamers, I was very excited to see what this game had to offer. Waiting for over a year, watching gameplay trailers, playing both the alpha and the beta, I loved all the hype.

The overhype helped Destiny reach an amazing sales feat only to have a mediocre reception from gamers. Although, it’s a new IP, Destiny was much more anticipated than another new IP, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor. And although Destiny did sell exceptionally well, it eventually showed its true colors that it was a simple shooter with repetitive and bland missions. Shadow of Mordor, while drawing comparisons to Assassin’s Creed and Batman, was a new refreshing take on the action genre. While, its story too was a bit lacking it has become a very well-liked and talked about game.

Overall, it seems that familiar IPs are getting much more talk and hype than any of the new IPs. Why is that? Why aren’t developers pushing these new IPs? It’s a question that lingers in the mind of many hardcore gamers alike. It’s a question that will continue to wreak havoc on the gaming industry and unfortunately, lead to gamers missing out on those hidden gems.
