      That was awesome, thank you. Really enjoyed that.

      Saw this earlier today, huge Ip Man fan, so the ridiculous irony of what they’ve done here is not lost on me:

    Naughty Dog Working on “Two Brand-New Experiences” Besides The Last of US Remastered

    by Giuseppe Nelva


    Apparently Naughty Dog has something more in the pipeline in addition to The Last of US Remastered and the new Uncharted, as explained by Creative Director Neil Druckmann in an interview on Edge.

    We’re working on this re-release, but at the same time we’re working on two other brand-new experiences.

    One of those two “brand-new experiences” is obviously Uncharted‘s PS4 debut game, but what about the second? We know nothing about it for the moment. We might hear about it at E3, but it could be too early for that yet.

    One thing is for sure: my curiosity is piqued. What about yours?

    Driveclub’s Canada Track Has Over One Million Trees; Evolution Working “Flat Out” to Polish Visuals

    by Giuseppe Nelva


    Today Evolution Studios and Sony Computer Entertainment released a new gameplay video of the upcoming PS4 exclusive Driveclub (that you can enjoy at the bottom of this post) showing off the Canadian track included in the game, and the developers shared a few interesting details on Twitter.

    Global Product Manager Chris Brown shared that the map’s forest comes packed with a whole lot of trees:

    I see people on Gaf trying to count the no. trees in the Canadian Direct Feed. Good luck – there are over 1 million!

    He also confirmed that the video is fully made of gameplay footage:

    100% raw gameplay.

    On the other hand Game Director Paul Rustchynsky mentioned that he was the one at the wheel, and also promised that the team will still polish every aspect of the game, including the visuals (since apparently some complained about the Anti-aliasing solution shown in the gameplay videos on NeoGAF and other discussion environments):

    We’re going to be working flat out to polish everything we can up until it ships, and that definitely includes the visuals.

    It’s definitely hard not to recognize the painstaking visual work that has been done on Driveclub, and if the game is going to look even better than that in the end, it’ll be even harder not to be impressed.

    Watch_Dogs PS4 Gameplay Video and GIFs Leaked; Show Augmented Reality Minigames, Cars and More

    by Giuseppe Nelva


    Watch_Dogs is still almost two weeks from release, but apparently some are already playing it, and they didn’t miss the chance to leak some yummy PS4 gameplay footage.

    You can download it here. It definitely looks awesome, even if the compression isn’t the best ever.

    You can also see additional animated GIFs below (click on them to start the animation).

    More Gameplay from the same source can also be found at the bottom of the post (apparently recorded off screen from a Twitch livestream played on Xbox One), but you’ve been warned, the quality of that one is really beyond bad.





    (Their source is NeoGaf)

        Definitely looks like it’s going to be worth a shot, I like the direction and the engine sounds like it’ll have a ton of depth.

        May 19, 2014 at 07:54

        Don’t see why we shouldn’t expect something like this. Think GTA on much better hardware 🙂

    Rumor: Journey Creator’s New PS4 Game Will Be Shown at E3

    by Giuseppe Nelva



    If you are one of the many that loved thatgamecompany’s games like Journey or Flower, today industry insider Tidux, who has a proven track record with his leaks, shared an interesting piece of information on Twitter.

    ThatGameCompany next game will be at E3 #PS4

    Creative director Jenova Chen previously mentioned that he was hoping to share news about the game this year. If Tidux is to be believed the new game is going to be on PS4, even if it may not be an exclusive, as the developer previously mentioned that the contract with Sony has ended and they are free to bring their new titles to any platform they feel suitable.

    Considering the studio’s well known creativity, it’ll be very interesting to see what kind of game they’ll bring next, even of we should consider this a rumor until an official announcement is made.

    Steam has an interesting offer going on right now, they give you a personal link, that you share via FB, G+, Twitter etc… and whenever anyone clicks it, it takes them to the offer page. The offer is, you share the link, each click garnered is a point, for 20 points you get a $20 steam wallet card, for 50 pts, you get a $50 card, for 100 a $100 card (I’ll let you know if you can get all of them by getting 170, though..I may not get that many clicks).

    So, prefacing everything I just said, this link is my personal link, so clicking on it will give me a point, however, embedded within the page you will see YOUR personal link. Re-share via social media accounts, and viola. Hopefully, everyone has at least 20 people out there willing to click on it!
