Tumblestone is the next addicting title from creator of The Bridge, Ty Talor.
The creator of the award winning title The Bridge, Ty Taylor, is bringing his next title Tumblestone to Steam this fall. Tumblestone is a very different title compared to The Bridge, which focused on rotating the world to solve puzzles. This time around, Taylor is going for a casual arcade experience with addicting gameplay focused on competitive multiplayer battles. At first glance of the screenshots, it may just look like another match 3 stack em style puzzle title, but that is not the vision the creators have in mind. Tumblestone looks to be a game that will have friends yelling at each other over close battles that will go down to the last second, while throwing blocks to their right causing panic sweaty palms Check out the trailer to see the game in action.
Does the Xbox One have secret hardware under the hood? MisterXMedia has been trying to prove this for months, but is it even possible that Microsoft has been hiding hardware?
Console wars have been a thing since the NES and Sega Genesis. Gamers that cant afford every game sometimes pick a side and defend their console as if it is a part of their soul. It used to just be a debate among friends on which console was “better”, but with that whole internet thing catching on, it has become a topic that is discussed by millions of people everyday.
Over the past couple of years a live journal appeared entitled MisterXMedia has become extremely popular among the Xbox fans. It is a journal that claims to have many connections with Microsoft insiders form the Xbox team, and have been kind enough to provide inside information that leads to people from the MisterXMedia team to uncover hidden things Microsoft and the Xbox team refuse to talk about.
This is a journal that is updated quite often, and the insiders release information not only about the Xbox One hardware, but future software coming to the platform such as Halo 5 and Crackdown 3.
Unless you have been living under a rock, you might of seen that currently multi platform titles on the Xbox One are performing at a lower resolution than the Playstation 4. A majority of titles run at a lower resolution, and the supposed reason is simply the Xbox One isn’t as powerful as the PS4. If you head over to MisterXMedia’s journal, you would think the opposite.
Capcom can’t seem to bring Mega Man back, so why not just sell the franchise?
Oh Capcom, how I love and hate you. Capcom hasn’t made a lot of smart decisions lately. Sure, they have had a few decent games like Dead Rising 3 and Dragons Dogma, but a lot of time spent over the past few years have been asking Capcom, what are you thinking? Capcom owns some of the biggest and most popular names in gaming. Franchises such as Resident Evil and Street Fighter have been around since the 90′s, and have continued to be a finical success for the company. Capcom continues to invest in franchises that have been having trouble in the past such as Devil May Cry, but there is one franchise Capcom refuses to touch, Mega Man.
Sony and the Playstation 4 are performing tremendously well. Can the momentum be stopped?
It is still very early in the 8th generation of consoles, but if you read comments on pretty much any gaming site, you will see a lot of opinions that Sony has already won.
Ever since the reveal of the Playstation 4 back in February 2013, gamers could feel that Sony had changed. The arrogant and strictly business attitude that Sony had for the first half of the Playstation 3′s life was gone. Instead, there was a new company that drove home the fact they are the makers of the a console for developers, but more importantly for the gamers. E3 2013 came around and Sony’s message didn’t change. While Microsoft was refusing to talk about their controversial DRM policies, and announced a $500 price tag, Sony was busy undercutting Microsoft by $100 and not forcing any type of DRM on the Playstation 4. When the launch of the PS4 came, the momentum was still in Sony’s favor and Playstation 4′s flew off the shelves, and are still hard to find in some places of the world.
Sony is doing a ton of things right presently. From the Playstation 4′s price tag, to the controversial debates of multiplatform games having better resolutions compared to the Xbox One, the online gaming community has picked their pony for the 8th gen of consoles. The question is, can Sony and the PS4 keep this momentum going?
A new Doom is coming. Here are 5 reasons why Doom will forever be a legendary shooter.
Doom 4 is a game that was hinted at way back in 2008, but was constantly overshadowed by ID’s other title Rage. It was stated by John Carmack himself, that once Rage shipped, development would focus on the next chapter of Doom. John Carmack announced that they game would make an appearance at QuakeCon in 2012, but when it came time to show off Doom 4, Carmack explained that the project just wasn’t ready to be shown. and there was little news on the status of Doom 4, and many believed the project to be dead.
In April of 2013 some very negative news appeared that Doom 4 development was not going well, and that an entire version of Doom 4 was scrapped in 2011. The supposed scrapped version of Doom 4 was very cinematic and was trying to follow in the footsteps of Call of Duty, a trend that plagued a ton of titles releasing around the same time frame. At Quakecon 2013, Tim Willits commented on the rumored version of Doom 4 that was scrapped and had the following to say, “Every game has a soul. Every game has a spirit. When you played Rage, you got the spirit. And [Doom] did not have the spirit, it did not have the soul, it didn’t have a personality.”
Earlier today, Bethesda gave Doom fans a glimmer of hope, and announced that if you preorder the upcoming Wolfenstein: The New Order, you would receive access to the Doom Beta. This is the first confirmation that a new Doom title is not only in full on development, but is actually going to release sometime in the future.
Remember all of the rumors that Bethesda and ID Software were working on a new Doom game? Well it seemed that Doom 4, or whatever the game ends up being called, is finally going to be unveiled sometime soon.
Wolfenstein: The New Order will be hitting store shelves on May 20th, and if you purchase the title new with a pre order, you will get access to what is simply known at this time as The Doom Beta. Nothing further has been unveiled about Doom or Doom 4, But obviously development is very far along if they are going to be having a beta sometime in the near future. Hopefully the beta will make 2014. I have reached out to Bethesda and asked when gamers can expect to hear more about this new Doom title, but have yet to hear back.
