RGN Daily News 74 Large News Sites Trolling PlayStation Fans w Xbox Favoritism

A lot has happened today, between A New Witcher Gameplay Clip being released, Black Ops 3 Getting New Info, FFIV: The After Years being announced for Steam, Money for Mods being added to Steam, and Telltale Teaming Up w/ Marvel, this was truly an eventful day. That’s not all that happened though. You may have missed a lot of stuff. So here’s your Daily News breakdown of everything else that was big, today in written format and at night when everything is finally starting to slow down. First things first, any opinions I might express in this Daily News breakdown are mine and mine alone and may not reflect those of the rest of our staff – so bear that in mind. Now, let’s begin shall we?

MegaRan Drops a new Earth Day Music Single:

Crypt of the NecroDancer is out on Steam today with 20% Off and mini-documentary about it. It was revealed recently that you can also beat the game on New Game+ and New Game++ for extra soundtracks to unlock, which for this game, actually
makes a difference in gameplay as well. More Info Here!

Will Fight For Food Gets A New Launch Trailer:

A Dev Diary for Zombie Vikings is Coming Friday

TOXIKK Developers defend their game and release a new update. The company has stated that their smaller active playerbase was part of their plans and that they don’t want the game to be too widely embraced until after Early Access since right now it’s all about balancing the game out with the expert players who jumped in first and that they believe those players would scare away others.

Bloober Team still trying to put together the pieces of Basement Crawl as they work on the free replacement for those who bought it, called Basement Brawl, or perhaps just “BRAWL” now. A Multiplayer Trailer has released showcasing the progress of those efforts. That trailer is below:

Unreal Engine 4 still doing Twitch livestreams and offering better, cheaper access to indie devs than ever before while also pushing the quality of the engine and ease of use to a new level.

Electronic Arts stock prices slowly climbing ever since Star Wars: Battlefront reveal, but not as quickly as investors would like as news of half of its potential players being unhappy and distrusting with the game emerges online.

Overlord – Codemasters announces Overlord: Fellowship of Evil
Info: 2015 Release, New Trailer, 4 Player Co-Op, almost MOBA style designed hack and slash gameplay, PS4, Xbox ONE, PC.
“See what the Internet has to say about it LIVE”

Info: “In the next 50 years, technological advancements will lead us into a world where only those who risk going too far, will find out how far we can actually go….” Black Ops 3 trailer says, “Mankind’s greatest mistake will be the inability to control the technology it has created”
“You already know this is a hot topic, speak your mind on it too”

Square Enix Announces Press Conference Plans for E3 2015
Info: June 16, in LA or Live on Twitch with replay promised on YouTube, Kingdom Hearts III will be talked about, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and Final Fantasy XV will also be at the show, as well as the largely controversial re-release of
Final Fantasy VII on the PlayStation 4 which simultaneously angered and excited fans when it was announced.
“Not much is known about the conference yet, but that won’t stop the world from forming an opinion about it”

New Mad Max Gameplay Trailer Reveals Further Details About The Upcoming Game:

Also, Earlier This Week: $5 spent within a Steam account now required for many actions such as adding friends or sending private messages to prevent spambots and hackbots running wild so often. free to play only players shouldn’t worry because free to play games pretty much contain their own friends and messages features anyways.

RGN Daily News #79: Cities Skylines Reaches Over 1 Million Sales + More

RGN Daily 79 - Cities Skylines Sales

Guitar Hero is back!! (Reveal Trailer Here) and A New Monster Hunter is coming from Capcom. For today’s RGN Daily News you’ll have to forgive me as we return to the written format. I spent a good deal of the day catching up on ZzZ’s and now am back to work on a multitude of Reviews including GTA V on PC (Available Now through Steam for Windows) as well as Titan Souls which also launched today on PlayStation 4 as well as Vita and Windows PC and Mac OS X (Linux version coming later). There’s even a demo for Titan Souls on Steam as well. This is the calm before the storm ladies and gentleman and you can really feel the E3 Season begin to approach as new games are being announced and revealed. That Guitar Hero Live game from Activision must be somewhat important to them as well since they spammed every member of the Call of Duty consumer Newsletter with the announcement and even pinned it to the Call of Duty homepage today. In other news, Cities: Skylines has reached a well-deserved 1 Million Sales and climbing through Steam making Paradox Interactive one of the most beloved City Builder game publishers at this time in an era after the fallout of EA’s PR nightmare with the online-only rehash of SimCity which fell flat on its face. We will have our own Cities: Skylines Review coming up this week along with much, much more so be sure to stay tuned for that!

If you follow us on Twitter you may have noticed I was gaming today with the Community Manager of Nkidu Games Inc. and we were playing The Red Solstice a team-based strategic shooting game on Windows PC involving co-operation and survival against monstrous, vile enemies. Be on the lookout for more of that as we continue playing the game for our own coverage, a Single Player mode emerges soon for it, and we continue enjoying the interactive community surrounding the project who are admittedly a lot better at the game than me. Thanks for checking out the RGN Daily News #79 and bearing with us as we transition from the not-so-busy first months of the year into the heavy gaming circuit and aim to bring you coverage about the best indies, best AAA’s, and none of that generic boring stuff you don’t care about. Until next time, keep it real, and keep it gaming!!

RGN Daily News #76: Nintendo Direct Saves Us From April Fools Madness

RGN Daily 76 - Fatal Frame Wii U Nintendo Direct 2015

Rather than try and decide what was real news and what was fake in our overflowing inbox this morning RealGamerNewz stuck with the plan that was pre-decided yesterday in which we focus on the Nintendo Direct event and keep all of the craziness out of our heads. It seems we made the right decision. A great number of new trailers and announcements came out of the event, much more than we expected.

A New Fire Emblem was given some more info as well as an announced Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei crossover title, New Splatoon Gameplay was revealed alongside talks of a new game mode, Nintendo 64 and Nintendo DS games can now be purchased on the Virtual Console but only for Wii U at the moment, we expect GameBoy Advance and maybe even some N64 games to eventually be made available for the New 3DS device but that’s not certain at this time, and the latest Fatal Frame game will finally arrive in the United States for Nintendo Wii U. All of this and more covered in today’s RGN Daily News.

RGN Daily News #75: Hideo Kojima Shuns Silent Hills, Metal Gear Movie Still On

RGN Daily 75

3 New Assassin’s Creed Games, a 44 Minute Bloodborne Playthrough, and much more are discussed in today’s RGN Daily News as we dissect just exactly how far Ubisoft is willing to go to make a buck at the expense of their most beloved franchise. The Xbox and PlayStation platforms get their April lineups announced in regard to free games being made available for paid subscribers of Live GOLD and PS Plus respectively. Check out the latest Batman: Arkham Knight gameplay footage and our thoughts on what’s going on with Konami dumping the Kojima Productions name from Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain as well as Silent Hills which seems all but gutted from Hideo Kojima’s influence although they appear to be sticking with the FOX Engine logo on the box art for now.

Mixed feelings come up when we speak about the Super Mario 64 HD Fan Remake being banned. In a perfect world we’d love all HD Fan Remakes to survive, but Nintendo is actively working with the Mario IP still so from a legal stance this just can’t fly. Atari on the other hand are jerks for blocking the spiritual successor to Tempest, which we also discuss and use as an example to draw comparisons from on the Super Mario situation. Alan Wake Lifetime Sales are revealed, a new Batman: Arkham Knight Limited Edition PS4 Bundle is seen for the first time, and Metal Gear Solid: The Movie is still happening.

∞ All this and more delivered by the delightful RealGamerNewz and Shotgun Seat Productions. Tune in below.

RGN Daily News 74 Large News Sites Trolling PlayStation Fans w Xbox Favoritism

Doge joins for talk about the newest PlayStation 4 system update, Xbox ONE system update, Spotify landing on the PS4, and our reactions to some higher level topics. Some of the topics we cover include the upcoming Halo 5: Guardians reveal which will take place at E3 2015, the final release date announced for the forthcoming game from 343 Industries which is rumored to have an open world take on the series.

Topics of whether or not it should be illegal to allow your own children to play Mature rated games came up as a bunch of teachers have formed a union against the act sending warning letters to parents of students attending school in the United Kingdom. Beyond that, the issue of fake news being created for use in the fanboy wars is discussed as Xbox ONE is winning the favor of certain popular journalists again who have a known history of faking news to make the PlayStation brand look bad. Take a listen and find out exactly who we are talking about and what warnings we issue about how gamers get their news.

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.
