If Anyone Still Cares About The Next Dragon Age – Latest Info Here [HD 1080P Videocast]

Here is the following information which is the newest currently known about the upcoming Dragon Age: Inquisition, which although has been given a lot of marketing talk – hasn’t really been well explained yet from a developer standpoint. Hopefully this Full 1080P High Definition Videocast from PlayStation Access will shed some light on things. Perhaps even more interesting, BioWare has announced a New IP earlier this month at Gamescom 2014.

RGN Interview with Yvonna Lynn (Gamer, President of Charisma+2)

Today I had the opportunity to speak with Yvonna Lynn. She is the President of Charisma+2  a modeling company that focuses on providing talent who are deeply entrenched in gaming and play all of the latest releases as well as specialized niche shooters and other games. She is also an avid gamer as well. But that’s just part of what Yvonna does, and she introduces herself further in the beginning of this video chat between herself and me (Josh Ehresmann, Public Relations Editor at RealGamerNewz).

During the following interview me and Yvonna casually brought up gaming issues as they came along. She also leaked several pieces of news in our interview of good length that gamers won’t want to miss out on, so be sure to listen to the entire show. If you have any further questions for Yvonna or myself, feel free to drop a comment on YouTube or RGN (or wherever else you might be reading this) and I’ll do my best to get back to you in future shows.

Dead Island Epidemic Hands-On Preview [HD Gameplay Videocast]

Dead Island: Epidemic is a newly forthcoming Zombie Online Multiplayer Battle Arena (ZOMBA / MOBA) title from Deep Silver capitalizing on the survival epic franchise in a new genre. Me and Public Relations Editor Josh had a chance to get our hands on it along with a number of other members in the team and the result is a fun experience that you can compare to League of Legends meets Diablo mixed with Zombies. WSAD style movement with mouse aiming and attacking are used while C switches between melee and ranged weapons. Players get to level up one of three characters which gain Hero powers as a session goes on through leveling up and staying alive (teamwork is key for the latter).

Mines, healing, enemies that can incapacitate players or stun them, upgradable skills across characters, parts, blueprints, the ability to buy / sell / repair / boost weapons, consumables, workbench abilities, and shop items are just some of the ways players will step their game up between matches. Although horde mode which sees co-op action taking place against zombies in waves, with friends or strangers, seems to be the most popular at this time there are also other offerings including Player Versus Player content. Currently Mutated Berg, Mutated Amber, and Wanta represent in the cast of characters with character points and coins being side objectives as well as the ability to Unbind XP showing up for those experts looking to re-spec a character their own way.

In the following video PR Editor Josh and myself (Editor-In-Chief Jon) jump in with our own homemade Gameplay Footage (in high definition) as well as our discussion and thoughts upon the game. We will release more gameplay footage as time goes on as well as revisit the title’s final release with even more thoughts. Some of the highlights of Dead Island: Epidemic include the Boss Fights and the Enemy Design which pays homeage to titles like Left 4 Dead 2.

Check Out the DI: Epidemic Steam Page

Preview Copy Info: Six digital copies of this work-in-progress game was provided to RealGamerNewz by the publisher for the purpose of this Preview.

Grow Up Before Sexism + Hate Kills Gaming Culture [The State Of The Industry Address]

If there’s one thing the video games industry is suffering from in this day and age it’s the terrible image that cases of extreme “WTF!” moments paint a picture to the public that gamers are immature, unintelligent, and lack a sense of moral / common sense. Unfortunately, this past year has not really helped the case at all. From multiple violent events being blamed on games, to actual situations revolving around games (such as a console being used as a weapon, consoles being the root of arguments leading to violence, and the list goes on). The many organizations that represent gaming to the press have been doing their best to battle lobbyists who would like to see video games fail to reach the point when they are recognized as art, despite breakthroughs in technology during development of Star Wars 1313 and increased cinematic themes in games like The Last of Us and Infamous: Second Son. Those lobbyists use moments like this against us, to make the gaming community as a whole appear much worse for society than is actually true.

But while on one front the gaming press battles stereotypes of violent gamers, within our industry our own artists, programmers, designers, writers, and public relations teams are also going through their own struggle. Female gamers conducting the same style of Podcast / Videocast / Review / News coverage that their Male counterparts have been surging the industry with for years now have ended up subject to unwarranted speculation on whether or not they are actual gamers or just “cashing in on their looks” as many seem to imply. Meanwhile those Females who make games go through something perhaps even worse as they receive a disgusting proportion of hate mail, threats, and public degradation usually of a sexual nature. What is happening to the industry? Are all gamers like this? Of course not! In fact, it’s probably true that most gamers are not.

“The only thing necessary for the

triumph of evil is for good men to do

nothing.”

Recently the show Game_Jam (a reality show about game jam development events) was cancelled and all of the events surrounding its filming have come to the surface through those who were involved as well as mainstream media. It all boils down to one Male ruining the entire project and wasting the budget of multiple companies, sponsorship deals, his own career and reputation, the man hours of development teams involved, the projects that will never be finished from that day, and should probably be liable for mental anguish for treating Female game developers like Flavor Flav’s latest date. This person was attempting to turn a reality show about developers making video games into a social drama painting women as inferior developers. When all parties involved were able to see this, they put an end by unanimously refusing to participate. But in this day and age, after all we’ve been through as an industry (especially the past year), the fact that someone that close to representing gaming to potentially millions of viewers worldwide still doesn’t understand our industry is dumbfounding.

The video games industry is one of the most diverse Entertainment industries in the world. The command of a good game eliminates the worry about borders in many cases, and has led to multi-national companies with even behemoths like Ubisoft admitting that working together with developers worldwide on each project is the future. Women and Men work side by side with every ethnicity seen and games are purchased by gamers who usually don’t even know where in the world their favorite titles were created but just that they are enjoyable.

IndieStatik’s Josh Mattingly started off this year by getting exposed for using Facebook to message industry professionals he was connected with through his website with sexual offers in exchange for information. Many have defended his explicit comments which you can Google search on your own, and it seems that the so-called “friendly” rapport that appeared to exist in text format (which lacks all contextual data such as the tones in a person’s voice or the look on their face) meant this was a conversation between two people that should have remained private and in fact was not inappropriate. But if a Female had been making sexual offers to a game company to try and get info for a website she owned, would those hordes of judgmental commentators really hesitate to defame her as total garbage? No, they would not hesitate. These people aren’t even looking up who a Woman is before dismissing her as irrelevant to gaming. If a Woman models or even cracks a smile in a picture then the vocal majority of some circles doesn’t even want them to be allowed to exist on the Internet. Wow.

If you thought this person

isn’t an experienced gamer,

just because she is a Female,

then you’re part of the problem.

In other somewhat depressing news, the once highly respected Indie Game Magazine went through a completely unnecessary drama towards the end of last year. Reviews were being offered to developers for $50 a piece, and obviously this presents serious problems. How do you score a game that you know the development team paid to have reviewed? Even if you ignore that and be honest, what good is it for those who pay only to have their game torn apart and given a horrible score. IGM became the main focus of a portion of the industry for a small window of time as this debate raged and boiled, and the creator who was no longer with IGM put his two cents in that the publication was done for. During this time, many decisions were made that were absolute and utter failures. Half-apologies were released multiple times on inappropriate pages within the website and the moment of attention (5 seconds of fame) was completely wasted by those in charge as they lost their staff, brought in new people, and refused to let them run things a new way.

While on the surface we were told the site would have new management, the old management was backseat driving and this caused everything to be frozen in time at the exact moment when IGM needed to push out tons of great content and show the world that they are better than this controversy they had found themselves in. Instead, that opportunity was thrown out to poor planning and control freak syndrome at the highest levels of the publication. IndieStatik was even ragging on their fellow indie games website, and while our team may have some amount of respect for the work of both publications – I just can’t help but feel like jumping on the bandwagon to report on each other’s dirty laundry isn’t what the industry needs right now (hence why you did not see an article on RGN about either incident until this industry-wide thesis).

Did either site really benefit from talking about each other in this way?

YouTube circles which could unite and become successful infinitely quicker as a community all on the same team instead turn to throwing dirt on each other and staying on the same level. Are we really all so different? Maybe it’s just that as gamers our fingers are so fast at typing, our minds are so fast at processing and outputting thoughts, ideas, words, drivel, blabbering, ranting, and rambling. I mean, the length of this article and our Podcasts should be proof enough of that. It’s easy for gamers to talk, but if gamers (and even game industry professionals) are unable to stop and think about the people who their words effect then serious problems will continue.

Forcing ideas on what life should be or treating others differently because they are Female is not what the game industry represents. The video game industry and entertainment medium is the first Quantum Entertainment medium and is in the process of giving birth to Virtual Reality, the future… It’s time for gamers to grow up and start picking their battles better. Let go of the hate and prejudice, and just accept that this industry is for everyone – not just you.

Rumor: PS4 Will Soon Play PS1/PS2 Games At 1080P HD Resolution

A trusted industry source which has been responsible for some recent leaks that proved to stand true by the name of Ahsan Rasheed (feel free to Google his track record) has delivered some new info today about Sony’s plans for adding backwards-compatible support to the PlayStation 4 through PS Now as well as local support for 1080P High Definition rendering “for select titles”.

The Virtual Reality headset that PS4 that we spoke about live on the air with our source from the development community broadcasting with us on the RGN Podcast back in December 2013 (which was later officially announced by Sony at GDC 2014 (HD Presentation recently released by Sony here for those who didn’t attend). This device is called Project Morpheus at this moment in time (though that could change later) and Ahsan Rasheed also states that developers believe this is the device that will finally bring Virtual Reality Gaming to the forefront of the video games industry, with time of course.

Developers are very much interested in this device and companies are likely getting involved in deals now to showcase the hardware in-store for consumers in the near future. The device will definitely be getting a lot more hands-on demo access at future Press Events such as E3 as well.

This all of course is a no-brainer after Facebook bought Oculus Rift causing Developer Distrust in the device from Minecraft Creator Notch.

Perhaps most shocking is that PS1 games and PS2 games will work on PS4 with 1080P HD for select titles as mentioned above, but the overall viewpoint of the company can be seen now with PS Now being launched sooner rather than later (hopefully) and a huge focus on customer feedback being at the top of Sony’s strategy this generation. They appear to want to give gamers exactly what they want, if at all possible, and hopefully will be able to announce some very rare and unexpected exclusive games for the PS4 console that gamers never thought would ever become possible or happen in their lifetime. Of course this refers to the PlayStation team’s list of essential fantasy games that fans have been compiling including projects like Shenmue III.

PlayStation Plus will also be receiving a new exclusive feature soon.

In addition to all of this leaked information, likely to be officially confirmed soon – Blu Ray and Media support will be increased for the PS4 soon beyond the already known about MP3 support which is incoming for in-game use. There will also be game content for popular mainstream titles that will only appear on the PS4 versions of games (exactly which titles and content has not yet been revealed by this source).

Stay tuned to RealGamerNewz as we attempt to keep up with this incredibly fast paced industry and all of its mysteries. As always, feel free to ask questions by contacting us or hitting the comments section below and we’ll do our best to factor in your input for further statements.
