Contrary to some rumors, Xbox One Games with Gold titles can be played if you take your console offline.
There was a story earlier today that claimed that when Microsoft introduced Games with Gold for Xbox One, that titles that were downloaded would not be available to play once the console went off line. Well after Microsoft started the roll out of Halo: Spartan Assault and Max and The Curse of Brotherhood for Games with Gold on Xbox One, I downloaded the two titles, killed my Internet connection and fired up the game. No issues at all. I am not sure why or how that rumor got started, but I can confirm it is 100% false.
Keep in mind, this does not mean you can let your Xbox Gold Subscription expire and keep the games. You will still need a valid Xbox Gold membership to keep playing any game that is offered in the Games with Gold promotion on Xbox One. Xbox 360 Games with Gold will be keeping the old format which allows users to keep their downloaded games if their Xbox Gold Membership expires.
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.
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.
ATLUS sure does love teasers, huh? The teaser site p-ch.jp has been around for about a month, counting down to November 24th 2013. The site as is is nothing much: A few white boxes on a red background along with the reveal date and several cities in Japan. Curiously, if you click on the boxes an image of Teddie from Persona 4 will pop up with a few different expressions. On top of that, it looks as though there is a link that leads to a livestream for the reveal on Nico Nico. What could the countdown be leading to? My hopes, along with the rest of Persona fans across the globe, is Persona 5. Rumors have pointed out that it could be a direct sequel/continuation of Persona 4, a console version of Persona 4: The Golden, or even a concert tour. Whatever it is, I can “bearly” wait for Sunday to get here.
