Patriots Win The Super Bowl

– Madden 15 by EA Games Makes Bold Prediction:

Electronic Arts in association with EA Sports released a new statement today to the press saying that the New England Patriots have won the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks in a video game simulation traditionally done by EA Sports as a sort of litmus test for the game engine’s accuracy to real sporting variables. Only time will tell if this rings true in real life.

Here’s an excerpt from the Official Press Release with more information:

“The prediction sees New England’s offense overcoming the Seahawks’ defense to pull out a 28-24 victory. Tom Brady was named MVP of the game thanks to his 335 yard, 4-touchdown performance, his third such honor.

The Madden NFL 15 Super Bowl Prediction is created by simulating the Super Bowl Matchup with updated rosters on Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and the official game console of the NFL. Fans can get more exclusive EA SPORTS content from Super Bowl week by following Madden NFLon Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat (easports) and using the hashtag #UltimateSB.”

PlayStation TV (AKA Vita TV) Discounted to $60

The PlayStation TV, PSTV, VitaTV, or whatever you want to call Sony’s micro-console / streaming device capable of providing PS Now, PS One Classic, PS Vita, and in-home streamed PS4 content (console required), all under the guise of also being another “Netflix machine” for consumers to gobble up has now gone on discount. Best Buy offered the sale first, both online and in-store for a device that debuted at $99 and steeply fell to $79 during the holiday season.

Now we see the device dropped to just $59 to which users have responded by spreading the news. It remains to be seen how many will actually buy though. Amazon has matched this price, now listing the PlayStation TV for $59.99 as well. The bundle which comes with a controller is now available for $99.00 even.

As Sony struggles to generate interest in the Vita library, many own Vita handhelds and are extremely pleased with their gaming experiences on the device. PSTV getting into more homes is a good sign that if Sony would have offered a more desirable price from the jump, such as Nintendo is attempting to do with the Nintendo New 3DS XL, then more people would have bit. We can probably expect to see a Vita price drop soon after this recent happening comes to pass.

Virtual Reality Gaming PC Architecture is Here

SLI 3.0 is coming out and it’s called VR SLI because it’s for VR Gear such as Oculus Rift. Instead of using multiple GPUs to render a single image, each graphics card renders for a separate eye. Beyond that, if the user has a Quad VR SLI set up then a sick immerse experience is guaranteed.

The GeForce GTX 980 and GeForce GTX 970 themselves even already  include revolutionary new technologies that make Maxwell GPUs the best choice for smooth, responsive, nausea-free Virtual Reality Gaming Experiences according to NVIDA.

Last Day For FREE GTA Game w/ GTA V PC Pre-Order

Pre-Order GTA V on Steam for Windows PC and you’ll get GTA San Andreas for free. This will run you $59.99 but you’ll have access day one to the game everybody’s been waiting for on Steam. Modding communities are already in place to rock the tarnish off of this game’s excessively big open world engine and hopefully GTA Online will be able to really flourish with the great online community of PC Gaming.

Starbound Gets Huge Update

If you’ve never heard of Starbound for PC, it’s a crazy good indie title that reminds most people of Terraria except with space exploration, many different planets, resource management, and more. Today they’ve announced access is available as cheap as $11.24 for a limited time as a huge update has hit the game with new quests, items, ships, monsters, a new playable race, new missions, and more. We’ve been working on a Preview for this title as its passed through countless Beta tests, server wipes, and that Preview is still forthcoming – but if you have a spare twelve dollars in your lint pocket and need to escape to another reality truly based on interesting 2D Gameplay then Check It Out HERE On Steam.

That’s all for today’s RGN Daily News – check back tomorrow for our individual posts as well as our Reviews. The Daily News should return during week days with a Week In Review beginning the weekend after this for its revival. As everything pieces itself together in 2015, RealGamerNewz is investing back into itself and providing our best foot forward for you the reader. So please let us know if you have any feedback about anything or think we could be doing better.

Boston, MA Developed Video Game “The Book of Unwritten Tales 2” Hits February 20, 2015 On Steam / GOG

Don’t be stuck in the past, I almost wrote 2014 on the past five headlines I wrote! But a wise ninja once said, “You gotta win some to lose some.” and that brings us to The Book of Unwritten Tales which is hitting Steam and GOG on February 20, 2015. Although originally set to hit sooner, you can’t rush a good thing.

KING Art Games successfully reached nearly triple their original goal in March of 2014 and have been steadily delivering a professional turn around time for all intensive purposes. This release marks the 5th chapter in the series and the complete game bundle version’s release as well. But there’s also a collectible physical announcement, for those hoarding a mighty nerd collection in their house – we won’t judge.

ALMANAC EDITION:

  • DRM-FREE!!! (Backup copies are allowed in case you format your hard drives)
  • 104 Pages Hard back Art Book
  • Making Of DVD
  • Official Soundtrack CD
  • double-sided poster
  • exclusive in-game content “Color Your Critter”

Grand Theft Auto V PlayStation 4 Review

Straight from the first step into Los Santos the textures and graphics are exactly what we’ve all been hoping for, depth visuals. Whether your returning from PS3 or this is your first visit to Los Santo’s, you are in for a treat. The environment looks super smooth with eye-popping details in every object, I dare say Rockstar may have we finally tamed GTA’s beastly new engine and harnessed its power properly on next-gen consoles.

A ton of new features, upgrades, and individual content pieces have been added to the game, the best of which I can say, DRAW DISTANCE has been improved. The worst thing I can say is that fans are tired of waiting for Heists missions to release, and although it’s great they’re being prepped for release now that the next-gen launches of Grand Theft Auto V are out – we were ready for them literally a year ago. Hopefully the build up is worth the wait, I’m surely not envying the pressure Rockstar Games must be feeling on that one.

Exclusive Content for those who have already played Grand Theft Auto V on previous systems is included in the game surprisingly enough. This extends from solving a Murder Mystery eventually leading to an unlockable graphics filter for the game, exclusive weapons including a Hatchet and high power Rail Gun, the Wildlife Photography Challenge, Stock Car Races, and some other stuff we won’t mention because it’s just more fun finding on your own.

The liquid graphic textures that end up splattered on your car or on the ground appear raised and with proper depth and lighting. The end result is what looks a three dimensional effect. Problem is, the splatter pattern leaves little to be desired. Fluid animations overall though have seen a great upgrade.

In terms of overall graphics, EQAA (Enhanced Quality Anti-Aliasing) and high-quality FXAA (Fast Approximate Anti-Aliasing) has been upgraded according to Rockstar Games’ Reviewer’s Guide handed down to press. Antisotropic filtering has also been implemented in a way that is meant to make far away images look sharper. This definitely works while maintaining a larger draw distance, and nearly zero pop-up that I can find.More specs are listed including Tesselation and displacement mapping as well as Parallax occlusion which can account for some of our earlier observations with gooey substances looking more real.

Rockstar Games also boasts improved physics, particle effects, lighting (over 3x the number of light sources from Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3, among other lighting upgrades), re-modeled textures, re-sculpted objects, volumetric light pollution, and more.

There’s been over 150 songs added to the sound-track, great small touches like High Definition versions of the television shows you can watch in-game at your characters’ mansions such as Republican Space Rangers or Impotent Rage. There’s even new vehicles to check out.

Online mode has been increased to 30 players with 2 spectators, a new first person mode has been released revealing all kinds of great easter eggs and hidden goodies in the game. FPS mode also has its own (optional) cover system to duck and lean up against walls, new ways to aim, and controls that feel like a first person shooter not the regular GTA just pasted into first person. This can be customized, so fear not if those words brought little comfort.

GTA Online also comes pre-patched now, with 11 updates already included off the bat. GTA Online on next-gen consoles will usher in a new experience, which is great because the last gen version has succumb to many hackers as of late who enjoy trolling and ruining the experience for others with cheats and / or mods to the game world peer-to-peer servers (since Rockstar doesn’t appear to host any of their own). Hopefully that problem will still be patched on last-gen systems though, and owners won’t be left behind.

Final Verdict:

If you haven’t been a part of the Grand Theft Auto V Experience yet, you don’t know what you’re missing. In this version, Driving stability has been taken to a new level. The overall feel of the game as well as the surroundings are meshed without unsightly lines or glitches even at top speeds. New crash animations have been introduced with subtle slow motion scenes just before impact lasting split seconds so you can bear witness to your self-inflicted carnage. Glass smashing, smoke burrowing, tiny pieces, and particles disintegrate as it all unfolds.

After seeing the difference between the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 versions of Grand Theft Auto V, I really appreciate the work that went into the upgrade details. This game comes with everything that made the first version great, smoother graphics with new textures and objects, and higher quality engine performance. The extra content added will be producing hours of replay value and Heists is still on the way according to Rockstar. All of these things are what makes revisiting Grand Theft Auto V well worth a second purchase.

Random AKA MegaRan Announces New TRAP 2 (Television & Radio Are Poison) Album Exclusive To Tours

You may remember that one of the most deeply profound albums from MegaRan released last June called TRAP (Television & Radio Are Poison) and was set to what we know in Hip Hop as “Trap Beats” which are heavy on the bass and whose producers have a certain affinity for rapid hi-hats. This is the melding of modern production styles with a focus on lyricism that contains a real message and interesting real life topics that listeners can relate to. This is Hip Hop about Life.

TRAP 2 will be available to purchase only on tour, so if you’re one of his die-hard fans this is a great time to start planning which show you are going to come out and see. MegaRan currently has shows lined up in Philly, Brooklyn, and even our own RGN hometown area Boston. But it doesn’t end there. Full tour details are available below and you can always keep up with MegaRan here or on his blog if you are needing to get this CD into your ears and just haven’t found which show to go to yet.

To make it up to those of you who felt this was a bit tough, pre-ordering tickets and sending proof directly to the artist will gain you a sample of this album. For a limited time if you type in the code SAFETRAVELS on MegaRan’s Music Store then you’ll get 25% Off Any Album. Since this money goes to supporting touring needs like food and beverage for the artist, as well as gas money to make it to each performance, a free bonus sticker is included of Barret Wallace the MegaRan version from Black Materia (FF7 Rap). Those MegaRan Snapbacks we showed off will also be exclusive to the tour now, so today is the last day to Order One From Home.

Irrational Games Team Laid Off, Is Bioshock VITA Vaporware?

Update: Apparently Ken Levine is giving the Bioshock development responsibility over to 2K Games. Hopefully the VITA game will still follow through on the original vision of being a standalone game with a full console game experience separate from the other titles events but in the same universe, as its initial announcement had caused much anticipation on the platform.

Ken Levine of Irrational Games announced today that the company responsible for Bioshock and Bioshock Infinite is effectively “winding down” as we know it for favor of a new game design technique involving smaller studio employment and larger focus on what the gaming community wants. Irrational Games is set right in our home town of Boston, Massachusetts. Ken also announced that the primary focus of himself and his team right now is to help those who have been laid off to find new jobs in the games industry, in addition to his new unannounced project’s pre-production which has apparently been going on.

‘Narrative-drive games that are extremely replay-able’ (paraphrased slightly) is the only hint of future projects to come given by Levine at this time. Levine also mentioned that the next project will be completely digital and have no physical edition. This move has many questioning the future of the Bioshock series as if to completely ignore that Ken and his remaining 15 members of staff want to do something groundbreaking again.

However, VITA owners were promised an exclusive game that would stand on its own for the Bioshock series – and that may now be vaporware or if it’s not then it could be outsourced for development elsewhere. Ken Levine announced that his team is heading up a brand new project and will still remain under Take-Two Interactive, the hugely successful parent company of Rockstar Games (makers of the Grand Theft Auto series) and more.

Mountain Crime: Requital Review

Mountain Crime: Requital is a game from the headquarters of game publisher, Alawar, located in Russia, Novosibirsk, and developed by Alawar Stargaze studio, located in Russia, Barnaul. Alawar Entertainment has brought the point-and-click adventure genre to a new level of entertainment. The Action-based atmosphere of this game allows you to go at your own pace, for impatient gamers who may have previously never wanted to play a point-and-click adventure game this is your game. Mountain Crime: Requital allows players to quickly blast through their favorite parts of the game with adrenaline pumping moments that will make you feel fully immersed in the game’s story and even gameplay as your eyes are scanning every new scene you run into for clues.

Story- In Mountain Crime: Requital you play as a doctor who has been summoned to mountain resort under false pretenses. Just as you are getting your wits about you, expecting to find a patient who needs your help, you discover that an unexpected weather event has trapped you here and all around you people seem to be mysteriously dying. It’s your job to stay alive, examine the evidence, and of course try to identify and stop the killer.

Gameplay- The gameplay in Mountain Crime: Requital is the most optimized version of point-and-click adventure seen thus far. Similar to other titles that have been recently causing a revival to this beautiful genre of exploration and using your intelligence to enhance the experience, Mountain Crime: Requital keeps you on the edge most and rewards fast and smart players. You will have hard-to-find objects that you are seeking, but you can also use hints. There is a higher difficulty setting as well as one that is designed to allow players to play quickly through the game with less patience. In addition to traditional puzzles and object hunting, the game also features interactive scenes which add to the depth of gameplay significantly.

Characters- Each character you get to know intimately by the time the game is over. You are sometimes laughing with them, other times at them, but it’s all a very fun experience. You never really can tell exactly who you are after until the plot begins to thicken and survival instincts begin to thump your heart out of your chest.

Graphics / Art Direction- The game’s set pieces and characters are all amazingly drawn and animated and look like the high quality you’d expect on a high definition gaming console or PC. The art direction in the game is terrific in telling the story of the dark and dismal situation players are thrust into.

Soundtrack, Audio, Voice- The greatest part of this game’s audio is the narrator which actually feels like logically thought out comments from yourself to keep you motivated on the right tasks. The player also gets to choose some of the decisions you make as a character. You’ll learn to hear some of the sound effects very distinctly and know that you’ve found something important to the game. There is a decent soundtrack that also helps tell the current urgency of whichever scene you are playing through in the story.

Replay Ability- The features a challenging set of trophies as well as a new difficulty mode that keep its Replay-ability fairly high, but even if you aren’t into that this game is just plain fun and may have you coming back for more once you feel the Mountain Crime itch again.

Engine Performance- There were no glitches or bugs observed in our play-through experience, the game engine ran flawlessly.

Final Verdict- While there may be a stigma to rating games perfectly, we feel that this game in its current shape and form is completely flawless and although improvements are always possible we don’t find any immediately broken elements in this game that would deduct from our experience. Mountain Crime: Requital receives a 10 out of 10 from RealGamerNewz, even if you know nothing of the genre this is a game you have to experience.

Overall Score: 10/10

Available On: PS3 / PC / Mac

Mobile Version Available On: iOS / Android

Played On: PlayStation 3

Developer: Alawar Entertainment

Review Copy Info: A digital voucher for this game was provided to RealGamerNewz by the developer for purposes of this review.
