Tom Clancy's The Division Open BETA!

Get ready for round 2 of Tom Clancy's The Division BETA.  If you were able to join in the first round of the BETA test, then you will know that there were some highs and lows of the test.  

With a few very minor bugs like not being able to use your mouse, which happened to me.  The fix for it was a simple restart of the game, which fix the issue.  To some reports of weapon and ammo hacks which allowed some players to exploit the game.  

Beyond the bugs, the gameplay was solid and the storyline, I think, is very interesting and it takes the player right into the thick of the game from the beginning.  

 The Open BETA dates have been revealed and announced.  With the XBOX One getting a one day head start on the 18th of February.  The rest of us on PS4 and PC will be able to join in on the 19th of February.  The entire open BETA test will come to a close on the 21st of February, but here's hoping they they will extend the dates a couple of days like they did with the last one.  

In the Open BETA test, players will get a chance to experience a new mission and unlock an exclusive reward at the launch of the game.  For more details on the BETA test check out the Tom Clancy's The Division site.

Let us know in the comment section below if you were able to get into the first BETA test and your thoughts on the game so far!  Here's hoping to see you all in game during BETA or at launch! 

HITMAN BETA and Collector's Edition Announced!

 Square Enix has been hard at work getting the new HITMAN game ready for its official release on March 11th, 2016!

With some awesome trailers being released recently like "World of Assassination Trailer" and their latest trailer announcing the official BETA dates for the Playstation 4 which starts on February 12, 2016 and  PC which starts on February 19, 2016!  In order to participate in the BETA test you would need to pre-order the game which not only give you access to the BETA but you will also receive the "Blood Monday Requiem Pack."  Check out the official BETA trailer below!

 I do enjoy checking out the different collectors's editions that many games come with now these days.  Sure they can be expensive, but most are worth the price if the game is awesome and if the items are exclusive to the collector's editions only.  Check out the folks over at Square Enix doing an official HITMAN Collector's Edition Unboxing in the video below:

Quantum Break System Requirements!

 The initial announcement of Quantum Break was released last August at GamesCom 2015 during the XBOX 2015 Media Briefing.  At the time it was said to be an exclusive for the XBOX One console with some really details about the game and mechanics.

Today it was announced that Quantum Break will actually be released for the XBOX One console and for PC for Windows 10!  Also released are the Quantum Break PC requirements for Windows 10.  As you can see below,  the minimum, recommended and ultra requirements, which call for a GTX 980 Ti on the Ultra end.  The specification that stands out the most will be the DirextX 12 requirement, for which you will need to be running Windows 10.  

 Again, the game will have some unique mechanics and story line, where you will be able to bend time and space when in combat, to avoid bullets and set up some cool enemy take downs.  Check out the live action trailer below that was released as well.

Another game to be on the look out, which is set to release on April 5th, 2016.  Although it will require you to be running Windows 10 for the DirextX 12 requirement.  Let us know what you think of having to upgrade to be able to play this game.  Also, will this be the norm with further game titles coming down the line?  Have you upgraded to Windows 10 or are you still running Windows 7 or 8?  Lets us know in the comment section below!

ARK: Survival Evolved Updates!

ARK: Survival Evolved recently received and update with a few new items, new content and even a new dinosaur!

The Terror Bird, also known as the Phorusrhacidae Rapidesultor, is a ferocious but tamable avian capable of high-speed sprints and brief hover-like leaps.  It is not a flying bird per se, as its flight is comprised of short, sustained “Joust”-like glides or leaps. At eight to 12 feet tall, the Terror Bird is aggressive, but still tamable and ridable, making it an excellent combat mount, particularly for harassing and scouting. Riders of the Terror Bird gain most of the benefits of a fast, mobile ground-based theropod, while also gaining some of the freedom of movement from a flyer. It is known to show traits related to theropods such as the Utahraptor, Carnotaurus and the ever formidable Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Implemented in this patch is a new tool/weapon that players will have access to called The Grappling Hook.  This will enable players to scale mountain side cliffs, be able to catch a ride by grappling flying creatures, and even be dragged along the ground by other players or creatures in the wild.  A versatile tool that will up your prehistoric game to the next level, but learning to use it will be key.  

Other additions to the game will be PvE and PvP via the Tribe Alliances, where small groups of members will be able to band together to form an Alliance.  A fishing upgrade has been implemented as well with the changes to the Coelacanth Nutritia, or Coel which are now in different sizes and will provide the player different amounts of resources.  

Check out the Spotlight Trailer below with some subtle comedic parts added which I think turned out great!

Along with the new updates and additions, you can pick up your own copy of Ark: Survival Evolved from two different places for a great price.  First you can purchase it during the Steam Lunar New Year Sale for only $20.09 which is 33% off the regular price!  Remember the current Steam sale will end on February 12th, 2016 at 10 Am.
