Artist of The Week Day 3

Keeping with the Transformers theme for this week check out another awesome image of the Generation 1 Autobots brought to us by artist Geeshin. Transformers is a personal favorite of mine so most of the art I chose to post from him will most likely be Transformers. He has a ton of talent so make sure you check out his DA page for info on how to order prints a request a commission.

Ryse: Son of Rome Combat

There have been a ton of questions about the next gen release title for the Xbox One; Ryse: Son of Rome. First we were told that it was going to be heavy on the motion controls then that seemed to kind of disappear. Then we heard that the combat system was mainly going to consist of quick time events and that still seems to be floating around a bit but no solid conformation. Still, the developers haven’t given us any clear idea of what the combat or game play is going to be like for this game.

Yes I admit that the graphics for this game looks pretty sweet but there has to be more to this game than just the fact that it’s pretty. Aside from the game play and mechanics mysteries, another thing I really haven’t heard much about is any type of storyline. All I’ve been able to piece together from the trailers is that you play some sort of Roman soldier and you kill lots and lots of people. Now I’m not saying that is a bad thing but I kind of want some more detail on this before I run out and spend 60 of my hard earned dollars on this game.

Well luckily Xbox has somewhat heard our cry for answers and has delivered this 6 minute long video attempting to explain the innovative combat system for Ryse: Son of Rome. I only watched this video once and I’ll admit that I was a bit distracted at the time but I’m still not exactly sure about the execution of the combat system. Looks like a lot of slow motion deaths but nothing super innovative and no mention of the motion controls…weird.

Anyways, check out this official video for Rise: Son of Rome and let me know if you have figured out how we play this game. Leave us your thoughts below or in the comment section of our Facebook Page.

Enjoy!

US Military Predator

This is soooo Bad Ass. Imagine if they actually did make a tactical and useful Predator style helmet for our troops…The enemy would probably shit themselves on the battle field.

Xbox One’s Official Release Date

After all the guessing we finally have an official release date for the Xbox One. Microsoft has announced that their next generation console the Xbox One will be available to the public on November 22. There was some speculation as to what countries it would be available in but Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President of Marketing said this;

Xbox One will be available on Nov. 22, 2013 in all 13 of our initial launch markets – Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and USA. Many more markets will follow in 2014.

This is definitely an interesting turn of events because most “experts” were thinking that Microsoft would try to make up for lost ground by getting the jump on the PS4 after their terrible marketing of the Xbox One. Well it looks like that is not the case. Not only is the PS4 going to sell for $100 less retail but it will also be available to the public 8 days earlier. As always we want to know what you think.
