Karma’s a B*tch; Evolve’s Wraith Glitches Out

Evolve-–-Wraith-1

Ask anyone who has encountered the wraith in Evolve and they’ll confirm; she is overpowered as hell. Despite having the least armor and health out of the three monsters, her unique abilities and speed make her a formidable foe. Too formidable in fact. When the monster that is supposed to be the toughest to play as, ends up with a high win rate, you have a problem. When more and more players start using her to get easier wins, you have a bigger problem. It starts to hurt the overall experience and results in frustration.

Which is what this wraith player must have felt towards the end of our match. Despite giving my teammates and I a hard time, we eventually prevailed. Not because we outsmarted our opponent, or fought to the bitter end like true warriors. No, no, we won because the bastard got stuck. Check it out below.

 

Karma’s a bitch.

PC Gamer Deleting Their Articles, Failed To Disclose Ubisoft PR Ethics Violation

PC Gamer Ubisoft Ethics PR Journalist

Many articles which have been seen by hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions of viewers have been deleted from the long-standing publication PC Gamer which has come under fire recently as a journalist who wrote about Assassin’s Creed favorably a large number of times has been discovered to be the perpetrator of a severe ethics violation. Despite the fact that the video games industry mainly goes unregulated to this sort of thing, nepotism and favoritism exists in all segments of business – eventually things can go poorly if proper disclosure is not made to immediately address bias.

It has been stated by many critics of PC Gamer’s actions to delete these articles that if connections between authors and their subject matter can be stated up front to the reader there will be no cause for alarm after the fact. Still, the fact that sales have been influenced by this author’s work without any reasonable warning of the bias that inevitably existed, PC Gamer has had their reputation tarnished and will be looked at with a skeptical eye from here on out. This case is the latest in a string of ethics violations that have been revealed after a massive outrage took place due to the poor quality of Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed Unity which released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows PC on November 11, 2014.

Below, the criticisms of Total Biscuit who was named Trending Gamer at The Video Game Awards in 2014:

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Campaign Save Glitch Still Not Fixed

Call-of-Duty-Advanced-Warfare-Campaign-Story-Trailer-3

Recently I had the unfortunate luck of discovering a glitch in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare’s singleplayer outing. After finishing the campaign, not only did I not unlock the trophy for doing so but I noticed that I wasn’t able to replay the missions I had previously completed, via mission select.

A few days ago developer Sledgehammer Games released a patch for the game to fix many of the numerous issues it was facing. In the list of things the patch was supposed to fix, “Fixed rare save game issue affecting playthrough progression”, was one of them.

Upon reading this a few hours ago, I turned on my PS4, downloaded the patch and booted up the game only to find, that nothing had changed. Instead of getting pissed, shutting the game off and calling it a night, I decided to replay the final mission again. Sadly after beating, no trophy unlocked and the game still acts as though I have only beaten the first three missions.

It seems the patch didn’t do squat for this issue.

The full patch notes below. It has taken effect (Mostly?) for PS4 and PC, the Xbox One version is still pending.

  • Adjustment to the in-game chat names notifications placement.
  • Fixed Prestige reset issues, including emblems and challenges.
  • Fixed marksman and camo challenges to not reset when you Prestige.
  • Connectivity optimizations for game servers.
  • Fixed issues with Ping Bar not updating correctly.
  • Fixed stats not accumulating towards leaderboards after Prestiging.
  • Adjustment to challenges to unlock camos for weapons.
  • Fixed round-based game modes, affecting Win/Loss ratios.
  • Implemented ability to unlock eSports Rule options in Private Match.
  • Fixed weapon reloads counting as speed reloads in certain circumstances.
  • Added description to reload informing that you can double-tap to speed reload.
  • Fixed DoubleXP splash, so it doesn’t show up in Private Match, Combat Readiness Program, or Exo Survival mode.
  • Showing 4x or 2x based on whether a loot DoubleXP item exists
  • Add DoubleXP icon to medal splashes when DoubleXP is active.
  • Fixed rare save game issue affecting playthrough progression
  • KC score limit increased to 85 per match.

You can view my post patch recording straight from my PS4, showing the patch was ineffective for my issue.

So has this been fixed for anyone else or am I alone this firefight? Did you experience any of the other issues listed and were they also fixed? Sound off in the comments.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Campaign Glitch

2624135-call+of+duty+advanced+warfare_1407931494

Having just beaten the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare campaign on my PS4, I decided to go into mission select. As I am working on my review for the game’s strategy guide, my plan was to replay the missions and use it to mop up whatever remaining pieces of intel I missed. You know, for accuracy.

Much to my surprise, I discover that I can only select the first four missions to replay. It seems the game isn’t recognizing that I have beaten the full campaign, let alone any mission after the third one. I also didn’t unlock the trophy ‘A New Era’, for completing the campaign on any difficulty.

Terminus

The video below was recorded via my PS4 after the fact. For those who have beaten the game, you’ll recognize this is the final mission ‘Terminus’. I only show the beginning of the mission but you can clearly see after backing out, and trying to use mission select again, that only missions 1-4 are available.

 

Very odd and annoying. Anyone else experiencing a similar issue?

Microsoft Bringing Xbox Exclusive To Steam, Valve / MS Partnership Growing

Fable Anniversary PC 2

The following Teaser Trailer was released by Lionhead Studios showing Fable Anniversary being played on PC with a Steam overlay, this confirms and preludes a forthcoming official announcement for the title which we will bring forth soon.

Lionhead Studios stated that they were “inundated” with requests for Steam to get a copy of the release which hit Xbox 360 months ago. Microsoft and Lionhead Studios are happy to announce, they’re making it happen.

For those wondering how this came about, and what this means – Valve and Microsoft are working closer together today than in the history of the game industry. Take a look at some of the assets for this upcoming game as well as the latest info on this industry partnership.

In recent years, Microsoft started bringing their video games to Valve’s massive digital distribution marketplace Steam, which has become the #1 largest and most trusted place to get games from on the computer. Despite the fact that MS had once attempted to launch their own hub called GFWL, Games For Windows LIVE, the company based out of Washington in the United States decided to make a very smart move and reach out to the audience of the PC Gaming community that had felt a disconnect and left them behind.

As Microsoft reached out to Steam, Steam reached back. Age of Empires is a game that was never quite reproduced in terms of brilliant fun for real-time strategy gamers who wanted to feel a unique experience of commanding human troops as they evolve throughout history from B.C. and beyond. Age of Empires II HD for Steam proved to be a much more appreciated and critically acclaimed release for the PC than previous MS attempts on the computer platform and marked the beginning of a new embrace from even figureheads behind corporate charge of the Xbox brands, MS inner-leadership circles, and more.

Fable Anniversary PC

Today we have learned another game previously unavailable on the PC is heading to Steam. As rumored some time ago, Fable Anniversary with enhanced visuals among other improvements made upon the Xbox 360 version (and Xbox OG original title).

Microsoft Studios has said in public interviews recently that they really, really want to bring a whole new level of support to PC Gaming. The last time they said that though, we were hit with some less-than-expected installments which attempted to bring us titles probably spun out of a focus group or marketing cash-in idea (Age of Empires Online and Microsoft Flight for example) instead of what we really wanted.

This time though, Windows PC and Xbox ONE are really showing promise with titles like Project Spark, Halo: Spartan Assault and Titanfall. With Microsoft’s newly purchased Gears of War IP, fans can rightfully hope to see some type of PC installment perhaps not of the full game but of a spinoff instead (similar to what was done with Spartan Assault). This doesn’t mean it has to be top-down, isometric “twin-stick” shooting like Spartan Assault, but Microsoft Studios has said that they are looking to explore cross-platform opportunities for Xbox exclusive brands in this way. Considering they’ve bought the rights to Gears of War, the time seems right for such a cross-over to occur – and hopefully skeptics will be surprised with the final results of that.

Check out some videos below of the X360 version, and hang tight for MS to bless us with some actual PC footage.

There are some who say that the Xbox 360 version never really got a fair shot and suffers from issues running at 1080P HD on Unreal Engine 3 (which Windows PC machines easily outperform without stutters). Perhaps a Steam release will be what Lionhead Studios needs to show their true vision of the game with less bugs, since last-gen technology has simply passed its prime at this point when it comes to utilizing the latest and best development tools.

In any event, it is great to see a huge gaming company take an obvious admission of guilt for bringing about a service that nobody wanted (GFWL) and being very classy in their efforts to remove it from being a burden on gamers while fully embracing the possibilities of a competitor who has simply fed the market better.

Platform: Xbox 360, Steam (Coming Soon)

Developer / Publisher: Lionhead Studios / Microsoft Studios

Genre / Resolution: Action RPG / Above 1080P HD

Here is the Official Launch Trailer for the X360 version of the game, Stay Tuned for more videos / info on the PC release as it becomes available.

How To Cheat In Titanfall – Infinite Burn Cards Glitch (*Warning: May Result In Ban)

Titanfall - Infinite Burn Card Glitch

RealGamerNewz does not condone the act of cheating, glitching, or causing exploits – however, the only way to get these types of flaws ironed out in a game is for them to be discovered and brought to the attention of developers. Respawn Entertainment has already announced that they will be banning accounts guilty of these acts. A new glitch allowing Infinite Burn Cards has been revealed by the community recently and is the latest issue facing multiplayer gamers in Titanfall today.

Here are the instructions to performing this glitch as well as visual instructions below that, which were created by TeamBeyond.

Step #1. Get 1 Titan Burn Card.

Step #2. Equip that and two other Burn Cards (these two will be lost in the process).

Step #3. Join Match.

Step #4. When dead, pick Titan Burn Card (hover over it).

Step #5. Press Y.

Step #6. When Titan drops into the match, Press A on a different Burn Card.

Step #7. Respawn Entertainment and EA Games bans you, just kidding (but seriously, this may result in a ban).

Call of Duty Ghosts – Holiday XP Event Starts Today

Call of Duty Ghosts - Holiday XP Event

Today gamers will begin to receive Double XP in Call of Duty: Ghosts for multiple platforms as a celebration of the holidays. In addition to this, there’s also now a new playlist called Heavy Duty which adds a chance for more health to the multiplayer component of Ghosts which has been criticized for being one of the least enjoyable MP’s in the entire series (mainly due to poorly designed maps). You can get double experience from December 27, 2013 until the morning of December 30, 2013 – so get killing before it runs out.

EA Sued By Investors In Class Action Lawsuit For False Advertising Battlefield 4, Financial Fraud, Stock Manipulation, Embezzlement

EA Lawsuit

Over the past couple of weeks RealGamerNewz has been exhaustively reviewing legal documentation from the parties Robbins Geller as well as the original investigation that was brought forward by Holzer Holzer and Fistel. Judging by documentation provided to investors as well as the press, we feel confident now to speak on our own (not just repeating what others have said) in saying that it’s exactly what it looks like. EA executives are being held responsible for crimes that they have indeed committed against the investors of their company and have also resulted in hurting the video game industry as well as fans of the Battlefield series. There’s more to it than is being currently reported by mainstream media though, as of course RealGamerNewz is always willing to speak what others will leave out.

First let’s cover the basics…

  • “Plaintiff seeks to recover damages on behalf of all purchasers of Electronic Arts common stock during the Class Period (the “Class”)”

This is the statement that reads on the EA lawsuit and begins a myriad of reasons. In common language we can describe them like this – EA execs made statements that raised the price of Electronic Arts stock which they allegedly knew to not be true and then sold their own stocks while at a record high. Here’s a small image major mainstream press has taken of the second half of court documents which are available to all (here) and break down how much money they essentially embezzled from their own company by doing this type of stock manipulation and financial fraud.

EA Sued For Fraud

Now for the stuff other sites and magazines aren’t reporting  – on top of this, EA also mentioned that with Battlefield 4 they were the most pre-ordered next-generation game which we personally found extremely doubtful even though the Battlefield series is viewed as a fan favorite – it has never been the best seller in the FPS genre. Approximately a day after making this statement though charts were released showing Call of Duty: Ghosts as the clear winner of such a title forcing us to believe that EA lied about this as well. If not lies, there must have been a twist on the truth so extreme and far-reaching that it would likely only be labelled fraud in the court of law.

The next complaint is that the game suffered too many bugs at launch causing the Delay of BF4 DLC and other projects from DICE / EA Games which will inevitably result in less money for investors (not to mention BF4 failed to meet sales expectations and pre-sale claims). We have it on good authority (from un-named sources within DICE) that EA Games refused the development firm’s plea for a next-gen Beta due to agreements and contracts with Sony and Microsoft related to launch-day sales. Beyond that, DICE has come on record in the public as saying that EA Games is to blame for issues of the game crashing. Could it be that these issues are the result of DRM being removed from the title post-haste since it became such a taboo word when Sony defamed the business practice at PS4’s reveal? We aren’t entirely sure, but DICE says EA is at fault for the bugs and that they couldn’t fix them any faster if they wanted to.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story as it becomes available to us, and don’t believe everything that you read either for or against EA in this situation since most journalists do not read all of the legal documents. This has taken us a long time but is very beneficial as we discovered a lot of not-well-known details during the Call of Duty lawsuit fiasco that happened between Activision and COD’s creators.

DICE And EA Games Made One Of The Most Beloved FPS Ever; But Its Glitches Are Killing EA Stocks

Battlefield 4 Jon Ireson DICE Examiner

You all know me. I’m one of the most vocal gamers in the world. Perhaps many have ‘googled’ my name next to Battlefield and DICE in the past and seen my history with the company and their sometimes false and misleading advertising. This passion on reporting about their games comes from the fact that I myself am a Battlefield fan – who guessed it? Since Battlefield 1942 I haven’t missed a beat yet, and yet I was the first to call them out on what I viewed as a string of shoddy releases.

However, I’m about to celebrate my birthday in a few days and the item I’m most excited about treating myself with is Battlefield 4 on the next-generation platform. All of the glitches have not stopped my renewed optimism for the series, knowing that DICE has done something impressive and special with their next-generation iteration of BF. Unfortunately, EA Games and DICE are having a hard time getting their many, many glitches and issues fixed for Battlefield 4. Their stock values are suffering from this. As a gamer I am prepared to bear with them while this time of moaning continues onward. I am hoping for the best and I am rooting for DICE. Perhaps the most unlikely gamer to be rooting for a company that has gone out of their way in the past to talk smack about me in the public spectrum.

What is it about gamers and being abusive to developers anyways? Oh yeah, we covered that yesterday in a massive article (featuring indie dev Gabby Taylor).

The bottom line is this – EA Games and DICE have had a lot of patience from fans with these glitches and patches and have even announced they will no longer develop DLC until the game is fixed, but the time is running out and the clock is ticking. I’m not the only one who still hasn’t booted up the game yet. It’s the holiday season. This is the time for DICE to make or break themselves with fixing these problems in terms of a large wave of people about to flood their servers (or cry trying). Let’s all join together and hope they can pull it off as BF4 has become easily one of the most loved shooters of all time (despite what you may have heard last night on that corporate cheese show). Good luck guys, I know you can do this.

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Bug Discovered For PS4 Users w/ Over 99 Friends

The 101 Trailer of Assassin Creed IV Black Flag

Ubisoft’s struck a cord of joy with making many gamers happy since Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag’s release. The game’s open world nature and excitement have renewed interest in a franchise that has many loyal fans but was beginning to run long in the tooth and prompt fears that it was being milked.

With the release of PS4 gamers on PSN can now have up to 2,000 friends, finally alleviating the pain of deleting inactive friends and then regretting it later when you want to see how they’re doing or game with them again.

Unfortunately players are playing right now and are unable to web sync data as well as being unable to play the ‘fleets’ content in the video game if they have over 99 friends in their PlayStation Network friends.

Ubisoft is aware of this and working on the bug, here’s to hoping they get this fixed soon.

EA Games and DICE Explain Reasons for Delaying Battlefield 4 Bug Fixing Patch

battlefield-4-ps4-playstation-4-game

The PlayStation 4 version of Battlefield 4 will have to wait to have the one-hit-kill bug fixed from a patch which is being developed as we speak by DICE for publisher EA Games. Sony gamers around the world have been experiencing this problem alongside a myriad of other shaky launch issues which EA and DICE are ironing out in what is being called one of the most fun Battlefield multiplayer games of all time, partly thanks to the advent of next-generation console technology.

DICE and EA offered the following explanation for delaying a patch that would fix these problems. They need more time to finish testing the patch. They believe the current version of their new patch would cause PS4 copies of Battlefield 4 to crash when trying to play therefore it will not be released at this time until those issues can be alleviated from the internal testing of the patch.

Once the patch is ready a number of other issues will also be addressed including the amount of friends a player can have before they experience issues with EA’s servers as well as capturing of audio and video during gameplay through the PS4 share button. Stay tuned to RealGamerNewz.com for more information as it becomes available.
