Heroes of the Storm Beta Access w/ Founder’s Pack [HD 1080P Footage Inside!]

In case you haven’t heard, Heroes of the Storm is a game that Blizzard has been showing us at press events for some time now as well as getting players into during a gradually growing Beta which is now available for customers of the Founder’s Back released by Blizzard Entertainment on their market place and gaming community Battle.net . The feel of the game is something like Starcraft RTS elements meshed with Blizzard’s take on the MOBA genre. The gameplay thus far looks fluid, but a final build isn’t in players hands – so we’re still keeping a skeptic eye about how good that gameplay really is.

Take a look at the Gameplay Footage for yourself, with a listing of where to get the Founder’s Pack, what’s in it, and the animated trailer for it below in Full 1080P High Definition.

Heroes of the Storm Founder’s Pack Available Now at Battle.net $39.99

  • Beta Access
  • 2500 In-Game Gold
  • 3 Heroes
  • 3 Skins
  • 1 Epic Mount

Evolve DLC Prices Getting Criticized by Gamers, Is It Too Much?

If you pre-order and play in the Beta right now, your progress will transfer over – you will get that skin – and you will get that monster. This is definitely an appreciated advantage to what Turtle Rock Studios is providing with Evolve. However, recently they have been drawn to scrutiny about their DLC pricing per monster and hunter.

The Hunting Season Pass comes for $24.99 and includes 3 monster skins as well as 4 hunter characters. Players can opt to not pay for it and they will still end up fighting against the more advanced monsters, and alongside the more advanced hunters or they can pick and choose Individual DLC which are priced at $14.99 per monster or $7.49 per hunter. The pre-order monster will be sold as well for $14.99 if you didn’t get the chance to do so.

On the flip side of things, new maps are free and it appears that hunters and monsters purchased as DLC will appear in matchmaking with players who don’t pick up the DLC as well, thus preventing the splinter of Evolve’s community. This is being looked at by many as acceptable, while getting criticized by others. Some say it is similar to Destiny and has an MMO type of feel to the way it’s designed.

Is this too much?

Please leave your thoughts below in RGN’s comment section for Turtle Rock Studios to see.

Sony’s Upcoming H1Z1 Gets Mixed Beta Feedback, Is It Pay To Win?

Named Most Anticipated Survival Game of 2015 by GameHaunt, Sony’s got a lot vested in H1Z1. They’ve grabbed a proven formula fresh off of ArmA II’s DayZ Mod (and subsequent title DayZ Standalone) and have manufactured their own flavor of said formula. With the promise of seeing a new twist on the zombie survival genre, Sony Online Entertainment has gained the attention of gamers worldwide.

Hz1Z will be released for PlayStation 4 “eventually” (most assume this year) and is currently available for Windows PC through the wildly popular Steam platform, but on their Early Access section meaning that this is simply a Beta and not final product. It would be easy to say “this game is getting bad reviews,” or “the computer version has mixed reviews so far,” but this would be fundamentally irresponsible as this is an Early Access release.

However, that being said, mixed Beta Feedback is what we can confidently say is being presented by the Steam community of PC gamers who have given it a shot in the 2 days that H1Z1 has been open to Early Access users for $19.99 – $39.99 of kick-in. The final product will be made available Free-To-Play on PlayStation 4 and Steam, which actually brings us to the meat of this topic.

Sony had claimed early on that they were aiming to make H1Z1 fair, fun, and balanced for all players – regardless of their pay-in level or if they were just playing completely for free. In short, they promised not to break the game for profit’s sake through a Pay-To-Win formula, while at the same time criticizing some games that did so in the genre. Since the particular game they chose to model H1Z1 after began as a free mod, it is pretty obvious that in-app purchases are going to be hard for PC gamers to tolerate if not placed in the game gracefully by Sony Online Entertainment.

Hopefully Sony is still open to feedback, Steam users are speaking right now about the current Early Access release – and most of them are not happy. Here are a few of the key points touched on by Steam Reviews:

  • “Pay to win // Air drops containt weapons,ammo and back packs which they said they wouldn’t do”
  • 957 of 1,069 people (90%) found this review helpful

Then there’s the case in which a Steam Review actually paraphrases Sony Online Entertainment’s quote:

“We will NOT be selling Guns, Ammo, Food, Water… i.e. That’s kind of the whole game and it would suck in our opinion if we did that.”

Only to also quote their later backtrack and going back on their word, doing exactly what they said they would not:

“We have made the decision to allow paid for airdrops into the game with things like guns and other things being randomly selected as part of the airdrop. We’re making them highly contested and building a whole set of rules around this, but you should be aware that our goal is to make this a way to keep things interesting on the servers but still be contested. If these offend your sensibilities just know that they are going to be there. We have gone out of our way to make sure the airdrops are contested in-game and that you can’t simply expect to easily walk about to the airdrop and grab it. Even if you paid for it. “

  • 2,006 of 2,318 people (87%) found this review helpful

Based on these two Reviews alone, and the amount of people who have expressed agreement with them, it seems Sony Online Entertainment has upset their fans and left them feeling like they were lied to. Was this false advertising? Do you feel this is enough evidence to say the game is really Pay-To-Win?

Update: H1Z1 refunds being offered by SOE for limited time

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further.

As always, do your own research and try out games for yourself before making a final judgement.

Halo 5: Guardians – Multiplayer Beta Impressions

Art By VGWallpapers
Halo 5 Guardians is the next installment of the highly successful FPS series and marquee Xbox Franchise will be making its way to the Xbox One later this year. 343 Industries recently gave Halo Fans who purchased “Halo The Master Chief Collection”  a chance to participate in the multiplayer beta for the game to give players a feel for the game mechanics and control scheme. Halo 5 Guardians’ Multiplayer Beta takes what players loved from the games previous entries and meshes it with things gamers expect from the modern FPS Shooters as well as stream lined a lot of the game mechanics they introduced Halo 4. Players can now jump, hover, boost, ground pound and shoot seamlessly with skipping the beat. The pace of the game is dramatically increased and the maps are refined for fast pace yet tactical gameplay. The weapons and gun play in the game are highly updated and no one weapon can decimate your opponent unlike in previous entries making aiming and shot placement even more critical than before especially in the 4V4 multiplayer modes. The targeting and scopes have been greatly improved allowing players to point and shoot with out a huge recital in the middle of the screen. The Assault Rifle, DRM, and Pistol make their return as well as some of the Covenant and Promethean weapons for the previous game. The player assassinations and take-down’s are back as well as kill reversals for those critical moments right before a player’s death. 343 has also brought player customization back allowing you fully customize your Spartan’s looks, color palate as well as your Clan Tag but the load out option has been locked for the Beta. 343 has allowed players to change their button layout so if you don’t like the new default you can change it however you like to player the game. Halo 5: Guardians looks like it will uphold the legacy of the series iconic mulitplayer mode and maybe even take it a step further. The beta does has some visually hiccups and it does take a while to join in a match at times but when you join a game you stay inside the current match. Halo 5 Guardians looks like it is on the right path and now its up to 343 Industries to follow through and finish their work on the game the data that the gain in this session as well as feedback from the community then couple that with the massive single player the company has promised us Halo 5 might just be the FPS of the year for 2015. Check out our video impressions of the Multiplayer Beta below and keep it locked to RGN for all your Halo news.

Chroma Squad – Beta Impressions

Chroma Squad is a Tactical Turn-Based Manager from Behold Studios for the PC, PS4, and Xbox One. In Chroma Squad players are put in the director’s chair of their on Sentai/Ranger TV Show and must create a hit series to launch and keep their production company afloat.  The game starts with you naming your company, naming your show, casting your squad and  filming your first episode. When the player starts filming the player assumes the role of their squad and they will face off against the enemy of the episode and their squad of Henchmen. The on screen action is turned based; each member of the squad will be able to move a certain amount of spaces and attack enemies one by one before the turn ends. The enemy squad will then get their turn to counterattack and the battle will go on as long as a member of either squad is left standing.  The players squad and transformer or Chormantize into their Chroma Suit as well as summon their Chromazord if the enemy powers up. The game is just as fun and addicting as it was when we covered the game at Pax East this year and the episodes are more fleshed out with story bits and dialog between the cast members. The Squad’s chatter will be sure to etch a smile on gamers faces as the writing is very witty and comical.

The only problem with the combat in Chroma Squad is that their is no tutorial to show the player how to move across the playing field to attack the enemy. This will cause a lot of trail and error on the players part in the final build of the game if the developers do not provide one in-game when it is released. The same can be said  for the directing/managing of the show between takes as their is also no tutorial and this needs to be addressed for the final build as well. If players can’t no execute the moves  necessary on the battlefield or make the decisions on what direction to take the show their Chroma Squad series will bomb fairly quickly and they may have to the game anew. When players get a good grasps on the combat and management Chroma Squad is a blast to play. There is so much to do in this game that it will never get old from leveling up your actors, upgrading your gear and TV set and much much more. Chroma Squad is a game that RTS/RPG fans will love and Power Ranger/Super Sentai fans will adorn for years to come. If you have not already be sure to check out www.chromasquad.com for more info on the game and the beta then be sure to check back to RGN for our full review on the game when it is released.
