This past weekend, the Final Fantasy XIV producer, Naoki Yoshida, appeared at the Nico Nico Chokaigi event in Tokyo, where he announced a new Benchmark trailer for the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward expansion. The trailer shows some of the new jobs, regions, dungeons, and flying mounts. There is also benchmark software for PC users to download and try out to ensure that their systems are up to snuff when the full expansion releases on June 23, 2015. You can download the benchmark software here, and check out the trailer below.

According to Polygon and their sources, Microsoft and Black Tusk are in the process of developing a remastered version of Gears of War for the Xbox One, which should be a no big surprise to anyone. Considering Polygon also received a first look at newly remastered screenshots, this is most likely not a rumor.

The only things we know about it is that Splash Damage, the developer behind Brink and Dirty Bomb, is the studio responsible for porting the game to the new generation. It's also been reported that the game will run in 60fps.

I have a sneaking suspicion the remastered version will include Gears of War: Judgment, the one game from the series we'd rather forget. Although, the second aftermath mission was pretty great, and the DLC with Ram was pretty cool too. And that's it.

Rockstar took ages to do this, but they finally did it. They brought the much-loved action adventure to Windows PC and watching Vince diving into that one was like a watching a thirsty, crazed kitten leaping into a swimming pool full of milk. And that's exactly what happened. Vince almost drowned in a swimming pool full of milk. They call it: The Cleopatra-GTA Syndrome (you can only survive its symptoms if you have the required Mech components in your backyard...).

Here's a snip:

When Vader asked me to review the PC release of Grand Theft Auto V, he did so knowing full well that I had never played any of the GTA series. I was pretty sure he was doing this for his own amusement (How dare you? – Ed. Vader). See, the idea that a middle aged white guy with young kids who is an admitted MMO and mech fanatic (me) reviewing arguably the most popular, most expensively produced, real world, uber-mature rated sandbox game to ever hit the market is exactly the kind of social experiment that makes Vader squeal like a 12 year old girl at a One Direction concert (they’re still hip, right?) (Yes, but you soon won’t be unless you stop dissing One Direction – Ed. Vader). I can only assume that this is due to the fact that his assignment for me to review any and all new installments in The Sims series no longer ruffles my feathers in the least. So he is now searching for a new way to make me squirm for his enjoyment. Of course, it could be that since he did such a bang up job on the console review when GTA V first came out and there are really only a few new features in the PC version, he knew that there is not a lot new ground to cover here aside from social experimental side. I know the feedback on this one should be fun so let’s get to it.

You guys probably remember the massive promotion that was made recently for an upcoming game called Silent Hills, which was supposed to continue the famous survival horror series. Yep, I write 'supposed to' because apparently they've canceled it now.

The game was also marketed as a joined effort between Hideo Kojima and movie director Guillermo del Toro (by the way, here was my take on the whole thing).

First off, voice actor Norman Reedus tweeted: "Super bummed about this was really looking forward to it. Hopefully it'll come back around. Sorry everyone."

Pretty soon Konami gave an official statement corroborating the leaked info. "Konami is committed to new Silent Hill titles, however the embryonic 'Silent Hills' project developed with Guillermo del Toro and featuring the likeness of Norman Reedus will not be continued," Konami confirmed.

So, with games like Bloodborne out there, I think it's safe to say that survival horror is not entirely dead. I'm not saying Bloodborne is a typical representative of the genre, but it's as close as we get these days without a proper survival horror game the likes of Resident Evil or Silent Hill. In both cases, the franchise ownwers have pushed so much towards action that the games are only shadows of their former glorious selves - think Resident Evil 6.


It's amazing, but the connectivity issues plaguing Halo: The Master Chief Collection have continued and forced Microsoft to cancel its own Halo Championship tournament. The company cited "party joinability issues" as the culprit for canceling the Halo Championship Series Cup 1.

"We're aware of and investigating party joinability issues," they tweeted. "As a result, we'll be canceling HCS Cup #1, and apologize for the inconvenience."

This tournament was supposed to be held this past Saturday, April 25th, which was going to be a Halo 2: Anniversary tournament hosted by Microsoft and ESL e-sports. The prize pool was set at $3,000.

Connectivity typically would not be an issue for tournaments, as most are in-person, but this one was instead hosted over Xbox Live. When players were not able to join parties, it had to shut down.

Microsoft and ESL have not announced a new rescheduled date for the tournament.


Batman has buddies in Arkham Knight! In addition to faithful Oracle and Commissioner Gordon, former Robins Jason Todd (Red Hood) and Dick Grayson (Nightwing) tag along with the caped crusader. In the newest trailer, All Who Follows You, it's these comrades in the spotlight.

Batman: Arkham Knight is set to release on June 23, 2015.

Now that I see Nightwing is involved, I'm suddenly interested. Dammit.

We've had teasers. We've had announcements. But now it's officially official, there will be a Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 on November 6, 2015 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

This trailer includes "Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones, which is how you know it's super serious. And it asks the hard questions, like "What happens when the soldier becomes the weapon?" and "How far can we push technology before it pushes back?"

I'm gonna have this song stuck in my head all damn day.

When Monday arrives and I have a good comic behind me, there's absolutely no reason for me to feel Monday nausea... so much. However, a few things did show up on the pages of the Internet, like this photo of Jared Leto's Joker, which is no fake btw. It's his appearance in the upcoming Suicide Squad thingy.

Okay, back to work. Vince has sent along his review of GTA V PC, so let's see what his thoughts are on that one. I'm returning to my stuff, which includes a nice little indie game and Keri's doing here thing too - which at this point involves anything related to Mortal Kombat.

"Mornin' Suicide Squad is shaping up to be even more awesome than Batman v Superman! :D - Doomsday."15

With a appearance of Spring I celebrate the appearance of many scantily clad women (and man if that's your cup of beer). Trouble is, women walking around, slightly revealed their body parts, does all sorts of weird things to my poor unsatisfied pleasure center.

In the words of the great Walter Matthau: "If I don't get to touch in the next two weeks, I'm in big trouble."

But enough of my fictional sex life. Let's talk about the weekend and what we'll all be doing. For me that's gonna be spending a lot of time with the kid, outdoors of course. In addition, I'll be working on a cool feature related to indie games and on one review. So, what about you guys? Any sexy plans? Or indeed just plans?
