ROGUE ONE: A STAR WARS STORY Official Teaser Trailer

A few days ago a new Star Wars trailer was released.  After receiving a message form one of my friends who's a Star Wars fan, asking me "did you just see the new Star Wars trailer?"

Now, I didn't think we would be getting another Star Wars movie until next year with episode 8.  I searched and found the official teaser trailer for the new Rogue One: A Star Wars Story! 

Star Wars fans will be excited to know that this December 2016 we will be getting an movie this year!  Rogue One set between Revenge of the Sith and Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope. It focuses on the efforts of the Rebel Alliance to steal the plans to the Death Star.  Hope you all are excited as I am  and can't wait until December!
 

Next level in crates: the Loot Crate DX!

Just announced is the next level upgrade to their popular base Loot Crate is the Loot Crate DX.  DX which may stand for a deluxe version!  What makes the DX version so much better you ask?  

Well the team over at Loot Crate say they are taking your base crate to the next level with an elevated assortment of collectibles, apparel, home goods and more! Not really sure what the "home goods" would be, but with the promise of the DX version being valued at $100+, you know it will come with some really cool stuff.  

The image above is just a representation of what may come in the DX crate, which does look like an upgrade from what the base crate's would have.  

I myself have a subscription to a few of the Loot Crate subs, like the base Loot Crate, the Anime Crate, the Loot Gaming crate and the Firefly Cargo crate.  The last two have yet to begin, but I am excited.  The base Loot Crate is an awesome subscription and there have been some really cool items in them.  With the DX announced, I am torn between getting it as well or just moving up the the DX crate itself.

The Loot Crate DX is priced a bit higher, with the 1 month plan starting at $44.95 a month, which can be less if you choose their 3, 6 or 12 month sub.  We will have to see what the Loot Crate DX has in store for those who choose to sign up!  Be sure to head over to their site and check out the different options you can choose from.  Let us know what you think in the comment section below, what you think of all these different crates being offered and if you are currently a subscriber to one of them!

 

 

Humble CRYENGINE Bundle

The Humble Bundle store is a great source for getting some great games at a really good price.  Plus, you can choose to split up your purchase and give some or most of it to charity for a good cause.

Well the folks over at Humble Bundle at at it again with a new and unique CRYENGINE bundle.  The Humble CRYENGINE Bundle is an exclusive library of CRYENGINE assets.  Some generic and others from games like RYSE, with over 200,000 files which are royalty free.

So, game assets? What are they?  Essentially they are files which can range from sound, characters, environmental, ect which have been created for use in a video game.  If you are indie game developer or just someone who may want to tinker around with creating a game or game level for fun, then this Humble Bundle would definitely benefit you!

Check out some of the different assets in the Humble Bundle video below:

There are 3 tiers for this bundle which you can choose from.  The top level will only cost $13 for all the assets pictured on the bundle, and again you can choose to give a little or a lot towards the charity of your choice.  Make sure to check out the Humble CRYENGINE Bundle which end in 12 days!
