Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Campaign Glitch

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.

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?

Basement Crawl Becoming Basement Brawl… Free Makeover for PS4 Indie Game Coming Soon

So it’s no secret that we were more than a little bit excited for the release of a certain PlayStation 4 indie title called Basement Crawl which released a while back after much build up and our own RGN Interview of the dev team. This title which was set to be a multiplayer only re-imagining of the Bomberman style of gameplay landed to much harsh critical review. Our own experience with the title was not very good either. But we were promised something big was coming for those who had invested in the title. That something big is finally beginning to take form over at Bloober Team, the development studio responsible for its release.

Basement Crawl will receive a massive update that Bloober promises will upgrade the game in many ways and give it a completely different offering to gamers. If you already have Basement Crawl then you’ll get to experience all of this for free, since Bloober feels bad for making so many people upset with the initial release.

Once this update drops, Basement Crawl will no longer exist. Instead, Basement Brawl will be the new name of the game. Over the next few weeks videos will be released to show off exactly what is changing and how it looks, but here is a bulleted list of what was told to me in regards of what to expect from Basement Brawl – a new beginning for Bloober on PS4.

  • Single Player Campaign added to give back story to characters and the universe they inhabit.
  • New build on a new engine.
  • New gameplay mechanics (more details on this soon).
  • Beta before release (this might only be available to press though).
  • Plenty of user feedback incorporated, including many manually retrieved from user forums and online websites (so speak your mind and the devs will find your speech and attempt to translate that into this makeover of the game).
  • Q4 2014 release window expected.

Stay Tuned for More info on Basement Brawl as it becomes available.

Total War: Rome II Getting Caesar in Gual Standalone Expansion This Month

Creative Assembly has announced the Caesar in Gual standalone expansion DLC for Total War: Rome II on the Windows PC platform. The following details have been revealed for it and it will release December 11, 2013 for $14.99 (other changes include the up to 24 turns per yr and a new campaign):

Boii (Rome II)

  • Sword Followers (sword infantry) – Where a lord commands, the sword is thrust.
  • Veteran Spears (spear infantry) – Battle hardens the sinews and the heart, and deafens the ear to the cries of cowards.

Galatians (Rome II)

  • Galatian Legionaries (sword infantry) – The Celts have taught the Romans more than they’re prepared to admit, but this is a two-way street.
  • Galatian Raiders (javelin and sword cavalry) – Broken enemies know it is better to flee than face riders who will not spare their lives.

Gallic tribes (ROME II and Caesar in Gaul)

  • Chosen Swordsmen (sword infantry) – These men fight with proven bravery and well-honed skill-at-arms.
  • Chosen Spearmen (spear infantry) – Chainmail does not chill a warrior’s heart, or still his lust for battle.
  • Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry) – The skills of the hunt, hiding and a sudden strike, are the skills of a warrior.

Nervii (ROME II and Caesar in Gaul)

  • Fierce Swords (sword infantry) – Once he has earned it, a Celt will only be parted from his longsword by death itself.
  • Guerilla Swordsmen (stealth sword infantry) – These swordsmen strike wherever and whenever their enemies least expect.
  • Mighty Horse (spear cavalry) – A strong mount and a savage swing make these warriors a fearsome prospect.
  • Naked Spears (spear infantry) – Who needs clothes when you have more than your share of courage?
  • Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry) – The skills of the hunt, hiding and a sudden strike, are the skills of a warrior.

Auxiliaries

  • Auxiliary Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry) – The skills of a hunter should be used in the service of Rome.
  • Auxiliary Noble Horse (spear cavalry) – A mounted, armoured fist is always useful in a Roman army.
  • Auxiliary Naked Swords (sword infantry) – The savage gods of war should be used to Rome’s advantage.
  • Auxiliary Short Swords (sword infantry) – Bravery in battle, rather than skill, sometimes gives worth to a man.

Mercenaries

  • Mercenary Gallic Hunters (stealth bow infantry) – The hunting of other men often has the greatest of rewards.
  • Mercenary Noble Horse (spear cavalry) – Even a nobleman has his price, and will fight for gold.
  • Mercenary Naked Swords (sword infantry) – The gods of war will bless mercenaries as long as they fight bravely.
  • Mercenary Short Swords (sword infantry) – It is often enough to sell bravery and a taste for glory.

NBA 2K14 ‘Path to Greatness’ = LeBron James Story Mode for PS3 / 360

The upcoming basketball video game from 2K Sports, NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 (with next-gen version coming later this year) features its own LeBron James Story Mode called ‘Path to Greatness’. In this mode players will be attempting to break NBA records set by Michael Jordan. There are two formats for doing this and one will involve LeBron on the Miami Heat team with the other titled ‘Fantastic Journey’ and involving a fantasy version of the game’s plot-lines with a focus on fun factor and excitement rather than realism. LeBron James does the official voice-over for these new gameplay modes. For example, several basketball players who are currently retired may end up being playable at a competitive level during this career mode if you choose to play this way.

Anomaly 2 Review

Anomaly 2 comes from 11 Bit Studios out of Warsaw, Poland. They are famous for their tower defense series Anomaly. They have also come out with several other titles including Funky Smugglers and Sleepwalker’s Journey, both of which are iOS, Blackberry, and Android. In Anomaly 2 the year is 2034 A.C. and most of the earth is frozen over. The world population is unknown. Machines have returned to Earth and have the sole purpose to annihilate the human race. You play as a small squad. As you travel across the campaign you will meet Doctor Zander. With the help of his associates you will have Project Shockwave, which is the ultimate weapon to use against the machines.

Anomaly 2 is a tower defense game where you will have to adapt to many different types of towers. During the campaign you will play as a commander of a squad of six vehicles, these are normal military vehicles. They also have the ability to morph so you will have more than one type of specialty for each unit. The six types of units are the Assault hound which morphs into the Hellhound, the Sledgehammer which morphs into the Rocket Hammer, Grippen Guard which morphs into the Shield Guard, Heavy Support which morphs into Drone Support, the Supply Servant which morphs into the Shadow Servant, Mobile Lab, and the Drone Truck. Now this is a wide variety of units to select from.

Most of the game you will be playing with the Assault Hound and the Sledgehammer. You do have the ability to play the game with what units you prefer. Some work better against different types of towers than others. The machines have many different types of towers and they all vary in size and power. The list of towers are: the Scorcher which has punishing damage but it only can shoot straight, the Charger which breaks open in the Storm Reaper, the Enforcer which is relatively weak but has shields surrounding it during battle, the Predator, the Behemoth which is heavily armored and has shock pulses, the Hacker, and the Scrambler tower which hides towers near it and it can’t attack units.

Play Anomaly 2 can be played on 4 different difficulties, there is definitely a challenge even on the lower end of the games’ difficulty. Players have to adapt to the towers and think on their feet if they want to survive each section. In addition to the units there is special abilities that the player can use to help, these are: Repair, Decoy, EMP, and A I M. These all play a role in the campaign as well as in multiplayer.

As you find yourself destroying towers you will pick up Carusaurm which is a rare element used to buy units and also supply the abilities. The controls are taught to the player in-game through several tutorial missions in the beginning of the game. This is also a great place to master some skills that will be needed later on down the road. The game throws a learning curve into the mix on how you go about moving through the map. Everything is on a map where in the tactical view you can switch what direction your units are moving and which way they need to go next. This is crucial, especially if you want to avoid having your whole squad wiped out by a cluster or towers or just a single tower.

Anomaly 2 has a great campaign but this game also shines in the newly added multiplayer where you have tower defense and you also play on the offense as well. That’s right, you have more to do and it’s a ton of fun to play. You have all the same towers to select from as you would in the campaign and also the same units to use as well. There is also the addition of more abilities these are for the person playing the towers they are: Regen, Berserk, Taunt, and Kamikaze. To win in multiplayer the player must either win by being the first to get to a certain amount of points or by gaining a certain point advantage over the other player. This can be done by destroying enemy units, making harvesters or destroying them, and by destroying generators.

Final Verdict: Anomaly 2 has a high replay value and at the current price point of $14.99 at their website which gets you a Steam key for Anomaly 2 and a DRM-free copy of Anomaly Korea for Windows. I see myself coming back to this game for more multiplayer action and with the addition of the new free DLC you can’t go wrong with Anomaly 2. This game gets an 8.7 out of 10 from RealGamerNewz and receives an RGN Rating of Silver.

Official Trailer:

Overall Score: 8.7/10

RGN Rating: Silver Game

Developer: 11 Bit Studios / Publisher: 11 Bit Studios

Available On: Windows PC / Mac / Linux

Played On: Windows PC

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