Uninformed Opinion: 2 Next-Gen Games From Gearbox

So today at PAX, Gearbox announced they are working on 2 next-gen games! No details were announced but they said that early beta access would be available for one of the games as part of their Community Day coming soon.

More information can be found here but what do you guys think of this? Do you think the games are going to be as bad as Aliens? Could one be a remake of Duke Nukem that Randy Pitchford once talked about doing? Maybe new IPs? Sound off in the comments!

Elder Scrolls Online and the Monthly Subscription.

Today it was announced that Elder Scrolls Online would have a monthly subscription of 15$ a month. This wasn’t entirely unexpected but still is an interesting choice.  F2P MMORPGS seem to be gaining momentum and slowly outing the traditional pay-2-play model. RIFT, DCUO, AION, SWTOR, and DDO have all transitioned from P2P to F2P with varying degrees of success.

Matt Firor, GM of ZeniMax, explained the reasoning behind the choice by saying “Charging a flat monthly (or subscription) fee means that we will offer players the game we set out to make, and the one that fans set out to play” (Source Below).

Only time will tell if ESO iess able to procure a large, and loyal, enough player base to justify the subscription or if it will go the way of most of those who came before.

ESO is currently said to be released this fall though no date has been given.

PS: Kitty is master race! =D

Uninformed Opinion: PS4 Release Date/Rumored Xbox One Release Date

So the PS4’s release date was announced at Gamescom. How excited are you guys?! Me? Well, while i’m excited that it’ll be coming out November 15th, I do feel like it’s a little rushed. While I do understand trying to compete with your competitor when releasing your product sooner(rumor has it that the Xbox One will be released on the 27th of November) but overall the release dates for both just feel rushed.

I mean, overall there will be great games for both and whether or not I like them depends whenever I get my hands on them but I would still wait a few months to release the console. 

Though all the teasers and demos are getting me hyped for this new generation. While i’m on the edge of my seat waiting for both to come out(and the money to fall into my lap to get both) I still feel nervous about it. No one is talking about the lemons that sure to pop up, the games that look good but could be complete crap, these things worry me and i’m surprised they are not worrying others.

Maybe i’m just paranoid. What do you guys think? Sound off in the comments!

Spreading the Word: Humble Bundle

So we’re starting a new thing called “Spreading the Word”. What this is going to be is a way for us to basically say “Hey look, we heard of this cool thing and we want you to know about it and go support it!”

So to start this off we’ll go with something I’ve heard about for a few times: The Humble Bundle!

So what is the Humble Bundle? Well it’s a place where you can pay what you want for games, yes you read that correctly. You pay what you want for games! Sounds great so far? Well hold on there’s more! The money from this goes to charity! You get to spread out the money you pay to the charities they have listed.

While the games are supported mainly through Origin and some on Steam(they give you keys to unlock certain games) and many people may be driven away by this factor, we urge you not to and to at least give it a chance.

So if you want to see this for yourself, visit their website:https://www.humblebundle.com/
You can like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter

Be sure to spread the word(pun intended) of our blog and share this article with your friends, family, friends of friends, family friends, strangers down the street, etc.

Uninformed Opinion: New information about Mega Evolutions

So following the reveal of Mega Evolutions, Nintendo has revealed more information about it. Here’s a summary of it:

1) Mega Evolutions only happen in battle and revert back to normal after the battle

2) They are caused by Mega Stones which are hidden throughout the land in X and Y

3) You can put your Pokemon through Super Training which is fun little mini games you can play to increase a Pokemon’s stats

4) Super Evolutions are for legendaries(might be permanent since that was not said as far as I know)

Along with this they revealed some new Pokemon:

Dedenne, an Electric and Fairy type that can double up on Berry benefits

Bunnelby, a Normal type

Skiddo, which evolved into Gogoat

So what do you guys think? Are you glad that your new Super Saiyan Pokemon aren’t permanent? I honestly think this is going to add a fun twist to the game. It’s a way to help out for that tough Gym Leader you always seem to have trouble with or for fighting a legendary. I do think that it’ll be banned from PvP though, I mean I can see this getting abused so much in online play.

Now I wonder how many Mega Stones there will be, will there be enough for EVERY Pokemon in the game or just maybe a handful? Also, what do you think of the new Pokemon they revealed? I watched a video(which will be in the link the full article about this) and they look awesome! this whole game is turning out to be one of the best Pokemon games yet! What do you guys think? Sound off in the comments!

Uninformed Opinion: Pokemon X & Y Mega Evolutions!

Sorry about the long wait for a post, i’ve(Doctor Wattson) have been on vacation and just recently got back. Binary has been busy with work. Expect more activity from us now.

So today new evolutions were announced for the upcoming Pokemon games X and Y. They are called “Mega Evolutions”. It looks like there will be some new system to evolving Pokemon further or something. 

The Pokemon they announced with this so far are: MegaBlaziken, MegaAbsol, MegaMawile, MegaMewtwo, MegaLucario and MegaAmpharo. Image

What do you guys think of the new “Super Saiyan Pokemon”? Do you like it? Do you hate it? I personally think it’ll be kinda cool. I wonder if they’ll be allowed for online PvP. I guess depends on the stats and whatnot which I don’t think have been released yet. Sound off in the comments on what you think!

Uninformed Opinion: More about the Xbox One

So yesterday more of the features of the Xbox One were talked about at San Diego Comic Con. Project Upload was shown which will automatically records and stores the last 5 minutes of gameplay. If you say “Xbox record”, your Xbox One will record and store the last 30 seconds of footage. Like if you’re playing a game and you do or see something really cool, you just say “Xbox record” and it’ll be saved for you to upload to Youtube or some other site.

 So now our controller recognizes who we are. Like if I play with inverted controls and my friend doesn’t, the Xbox One will actually automatically change the settings when the controller changes hands. Sounds pretty cool so far. But there’s more!

The Smartglass app will show you where your friends are in their own games. You can then invite them to play a game and get notified when they’re ready to play the game you invited them to play.

The new Kinect also has had some changes. It can now recognize the features of people so much better than before. It can do this so well that in certain games you can now make the characters look like you. Like in certain games when you have your avatar play, instead of the weird looking thing that plays, it’d be a more realistic looking model of yourself in those games.

All of this sounds pretty awesome! I really can’t wait for the new generation of consoles and games to come out, it’s going to be so amazing! You can read the full story here: http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/07/20/the-future-of-xbox

Uninformed Opinion: MAG and SOCOM 4 Servers Shut Down

So today Sony announced they were shutting down the servers for the PS3 games MAG and SOCOM 4 on 01/28/14. I’m actually sad about this because I loved MAG, it was such a fun game and the fact that the matches had so many people(up to 256 players I believe) was quite impressive for a console game. While I never played SOCOM 4, I heard that it was a good game. I’ll go pick it up sometime to at least experience it in full detail before the servers are shut down.

What do you guys think of this? Do you think we should petition to keep the servers up? Should fans try to see if they can set up servers to keep the game running like what usually happens on PC(if possible of course)? Sound off in the comments!
