Crimes & Punishments: A Change of Engine Showed In Video


With the Testament of Sherlock Holmes, the series of video games dedicated to the famous detective marked a notable step in its history by dropping the traditional PC adventure games’ gameplay in favor of a real investigation experience on consoles and PC.  With Crimes & Punishments, the series will mark a new milestone, as the development studio Frogwares will give up its home-made engine in order to switch to the well-known Unreal Engine 3 from Epic. This choice will first allow the game to benefit from bigger environments that are more gorgeous and more varied, all while offering an incredible level of detail: dynamic lighting, shaders, post-processing effects, animations… the game is an all-around winner, as illustrated in the very first presentation video of the new engine of Sherlock Holmes’ latest game, sit back and enjoy the video.

This new engine not only benefits the game’s graphics: it also allows the development of new investigation mechanics that the previous engine’s limitations did not permit. These new mechanics give the player the feeling that they ARE Sherlock Holmes, and enable them to fully use the incredible talents and gifts known to all fans, such as his skill to guess many details about someone’s life simply by glancing at them – or to imagine and reconstruct the course of event by carefully observing all the key details of a crime scene.

Crimes & Punishments will begin showcasing these unique features in the coming weeks through videos and presentations of the game. Crimes & Punishments will also be presented in more detail at E3 2013.

Exclusive Triple Grand Theft Auto V Trailer Special


As promised Rockstar Games have just released three new exclusive trailers for Grand Theft Auto V, in these videos Rockstar Games are focusing on the three main playable characters, Michael, Franklin and Trevor, and oh my what characters they are too. As you will know Grand Theft Auto is and always has been an aged 18 game, so the video is, lets say a little bit rude for our younger viewers so parental advisory is needed whilst the video is playing. For those old enough to enjoy the age rating, sit back and enjoy this amazing trilogy of mayhem. And for the record my favourite character out of the three is Trevor, who will be your favourite character I wonder? Scheduled for release on September 17th Grand Theft Auto V promises to be everything that we want in a game and much much more.

It’s been in development for years but we still know little more about Grand Theft Auto V now than we did when it was first announced back in 2011. And to be honest we still aren’t much the wiser after watching these new trailers, impressive as they are.

There’s one each for protagonists Michael, Franklin, and Trevor, providing the most detailed look at their back stories so far. Although there’s still no demonstration of how you’ll switch characters between them, which is apparently achieved by a Google Earth style zoom out effect.

Officially Grand Theft Auto V is to be released on September 17th for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Rockstar has said they’re considering PC and Wii U versions but have made no comment at all on the likelihood of PlayStation 4 or next gen Xbox versions.

The Ghosts Are Out At ASDA


It seems that the stories that we have all been reading are in fact true, and if you were doubting the fact that ghosts were real, then stop and think again, because ghosts really are real. Activision have today officially announced the release of Call of Duty: Ghosts and if you are an eager little beaver, then you need to head on over to ASDA and put in your pre-order, even though ASDA has put aside loads of copies you don’t want to miss out, especially when you hear that Call of Duty: Ghosts is already said to be the highly anticipated bestselling sequel video game of 2013. So dont delay and go and pre-order your copy today.

The hotly tipped number 1 Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 game is set to land in stores from November 5th and promises to be the most popular game of 2013.  Call of Duty: Ghosts will allegedly take place in the future, but utilise current technology and weapons in line with a “major plot event”. The single-player campaign is said to include more destructible environments, with multiplayer maps featuring interactive areas and traps.

Asda has stocked up ahead of the pre-order launch to meet public demand and ensure customers avoid disappointment.

Guardians of Middle-Earth: Elrond’s Trailer


Elrond, the mighty leader of Rivendell and father to Arwen, joins the battle as the newest playable Guardian in Guardians of Middle-earth. Elrond DLC will be available via the Xbox Live Arcade Marketplace and the PlayStation Network. Elrond’s exceptional battle skills were showcased during the end of the Second Age, when the Last Alliance of Elves and Men set out to Mordor to fight in the Battle of Dagorlad, where they ultimately defeated Sauron. And today they are showcased here for you to enjoy. As soon as I get more news surrounding this new DLC I will let you all know.

Gamers can register for the lock-ins at their nearest participating store, either in person or by phone, or by sending  their local store a tweet to be in with a chance of taking part in the action. Spaces are limited; customers must be over 18 and will be chosen on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Last Of Us tells the story of Joel, a survivor of the savage cordyceps virus infection which has plunged the USA into a chillingly-authentic post-apocalyptic hell. He embarks on a cross-America trip with a precious cargo, Ellie, leaving the relative safety of the quarantine zone where they will encounter fierce mutated husks and crazed survivors. From the award-winning team behind Uncharted, Crash Bandicoot and Jak and Daxter, The Last Of Us delivers a gritty, cinematic experience interspersed with genuine survival-action to deliver a compelling and unique gaming experience. In addition, The Last Of Us will feature a brand new online multiplayer, featuring XP-levelling and in-game currency to purchase upgrades and weapons.

GAME is also offering customers an exclusive Ellie Edition of The Last Of Us, available at no other retailer.
