The Walking Dead is still on top for being one of the greatest zombie shows ever, whether you’re looking at the AMC TV series or TellTale’s rendition. Well in its prime, in junction with Season 5 of the Walking Dead television show, expect for the mobile version titled “No Man’s Land.”
“The game, titled The Walking Dead: No Man’s Land, will allow players to experience the world of the iconic show through gameplay exclusively developed for smartphones and tablet devices. Developed by Next Games in close collaboration with AMC, the game will feature themes familiar to the TV series, where characters fight for survival in a post-apocalyptic, walker-infested world. A recurring theme of choosing the right survival strategy and making the most human choices possible is at the heart of the first-of-its-kind game.”
Here’s the official trailer:
“Our approach is to stay true to the main themes of the TV show: survival strategy, finding safety for your people, balancing between right and wrong and, of course, action when it comes to fighting against the hordes of walkers. We respect the creators of The Walking Dead immensely and want this game to portray the world they have created as closely as possible,” said Teemu Huuhtanen, CEO, Next Games.

We hope that you’re ready for the next tournament that’s labeled as the “Final Battle.” The Tekken tournament is making a coming back. As some fans are excited for the new installment, some are saying this is officially one too many. Either way the new trailer can be seen below and blow for blow, Tekken 7 is officially under development.
Date Released: June 3rd, 2014

Genre: Action-Adventure, Stealth
Rated: M for Mature
Could you imagine witnessing your own death as an outer body experience? Literally watch your world around you change in the matter of seconds. That’s exactly how it all begins when you take control of Ronan O’Connor, a detective with an with incredible backstory; from a young felon to protecting and serving to watching your own murder take place before your eyes.
As Ronan you’re murdered by the notorious bell killer who has left of trail of blood behind him. Instead of crossing over into the afterlife, detective O’Connor must tie up his loose ends before stepping into the light. In the light however, he sees his wife Julia who died not long ago explaining the bridge he must cross; and with the help of a teenage psychic that has the ability to see and communicate with those lost in the world; Ronan seeks to find his killer and his way to Julia once more.
Murdered Soul Suspect does a great job delivering to gamers an intriguing story, but it falls short on gameplay and interactions. Soul Suspect takes place in Salem, a town well known for witch craft back in the early 1800’s. As you make your way through Salem, you immediately begin to notice not only how limited the map is, but the environment as a whole.
Salem is presented as a dark town where everyone when their mind is read focuses on murders and witches, along with other deep thoughts. A town where time seems to wait for everyone as civilians literally stays in the same area throughout the entire duration of story; sort of. In addition with a handful of character models, you find yourself running into the same people everywhere.
As a ghost detective, you’re able to find clues and poltergeist to solve crimes. Also as the dead man walking you have the ability to teleport through passageways, possess and influence humans and possess cats to navigate to unreachable areas. And while it seems so far so good, it quickly feels monotonous and dead on arrival. The game overall has too many inconsistencies.
On a positive note, Murdered Soul Suspect allows you to wear your badge with pride allowing Ronan to solve the death of others. Whether you’re helping a guy figure out what happened to his friends behind the wheel or a woman that’s bitter of a relationship enough to commit suicide, these brief moments are worth experiencing.
Murdered Soul Suspect is a mixed bag delivering a story well worth partaking in, while cheating the player out of a respective gameplay experience. Almost every aspect evolving Soul Suspect leaves something missing out of the puzzle.

Release Date: July 1st, 2014

It’s rare to find your hands on a World War shoot em up and not cringe at the gameplay itself. They’ve been attempted many times and suffered horribly to the lack of in certain areas. But two games genuinely standout, Call of Duty: World at War (and further back) and Sniper Elite. It’s wasn’t the stories that drew you in but the creativity.
Sniper Elite’s X-Ray kills are by far the game’s signature and highest selling point of the game. And while that alone makes Rebellion Oxford’s title a must have, Sniper Elite V2’s story never stood up as being memorable. Instead, it was a bullet fest with nothing more to offer than blood, which wasn’t a bad thing.
Sniper Elite III is no different as the story is narrated by Karl, an American soldier heading after the Germans that have infiltrated their way into Afrika, creating Afrika Korps. The campaign is again unmemorable, but the gameplay is consistent and spot on. There are 8 chapters in Sniper Elite III keeping you in the heart of the action from beginning to end.
A few noticeable changes in Sniper Elite III that stood out were the A.I. and the red dot when aiming down targets. The A.I. is much more responsive in comparison to V2 as enemies spot you more realistically. With that in mind expect to die a few more times by the Germans and their tanks.
With X-Ray vision making a comeback it was a little odd to see the infrared laser go way, replaced with a focus lens (based on your playing difficulty). Whether you decide to just shoot first and ask questions later or utilize your environment by masking your shots, the kill cam makes it all worth it.
Each kill has the most gruesome, yet entertaining assassinations ever. As the bullets begin to penetrate, enemies’ transition to an x-ray vision showing the internal damage that takes place. Skulls crack, eye balls separate and that’s just a tease to the full experience. You can also take down tanks and trucks when aiming down their weak points.
Weapons are customizable in Sniper Elite as you earn parts as well as new guns while ranking up and completing chapters throughout the campaign.
Karl doesn’t have to face the battlefield solo this time around as co-op has been added into the mix allowing a second player online to join you on your mission. Other multiplayers options are available as well such as Deathmatch, Overwatch and Survival which allow you to kill enemies in waves similar to Halo, Gears and Call of Duty Zombies (which is more fitting, taking down Nazi’s).
The issues run into with Sniper Elite III are the same that plagued V2, a forgettable story and sniping concept that only shines for so long. After a while the experience grows tiresome. Not to mention a few glitches here and there; for example, when hiding enemies their bodies almost every time fell into the ground, under the map; Or killing an enemy to have their body float in air. These errors didn’t ruin the overall experience, but it effects the expectation.
Sniper Elite III has everything needed to make a game leave you with a lasting impression in terms to the experience, but the story itself, especially because of the excess dialogue, never allows you to clearly understand what’s going on. To be fair, Sniper Elite did release cheaper than the average AAA title and it’s worth every bullet!

For the 15th time John Cena’s time has come. One day after picking up the World Heavyweight Championship at Money in the Bank, delivering an Attitude Adjustment to both Randy Orton and Kane to be declared the winner of the MITB Championship match, the champ is here. But that’s not the only place where the champ is.
During Monday Night Raw, Stephanie McMahon and Triple H announced John Cena as the cover star of the new WWE 2K15 game scheduled to release October 28th with graphics never seen before on new-gen consoles, respectively the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
But if that wasn’t enough, the WWE 2K15 trailer is here:
So news has been absolutely everywhere circling the new installment for WWE 2K. We are being promised new graphics similar to the remarkable experience in NBA 2K14 and we can expect between 30-35 hours of commentary between Jerry Lawler and Michael Cole meaning that we won’t hear the same repetitive phrases. I don’t know about you, but I already screaming win, win!
We still have to wait to see just how far will 2K push the boundaries of WWE 2K15. I for one look to the day 2K’s technology will allow you to put yourself in the game similar to EA’s Gameface. I know it’s a long shot, but I heard it well by a superstar, all you have to do is “Bo Lieve!”
The announcement of select superstars in WWE 2K15 wasn’t exactly news. Finding out WCW superstars could be a feature is a move in the wrong direction (in my opinion) after reliving the Attitude Era that decimated the competition. With the special contract in place in the WWE, Sting as a preorder bonus isn’t too bad, but could be better.
I still question the Fall Count Anywhere matches; what will be defined this year as “anywhere?” How detailed will superstars look in full, ranging from jobbers to Star Dust to Bray Wyatt. Being able to see John Cena’s head in preparation for new-gen looks breathtaking, but will the technology be in “full” effect in the next few months or will we be on standby for another year?
Then there’s the man that screamed for Ice Cream Bars, the most popular man in sports entertainment that haven’t entertained in quite a while; CM Punk. With his WWE contract still in full affect, he (unlike Bray Wyatt) has the whole world in his hands. Will we see CM Punk one more time as a selectable character in WWE 2K15? I’m quite sure most WWE fans rather see Punk over the entire WCW roster. If you had to choose a preorder incentive, would you prefer CM Punk or Sting?
Can we see backstage interviews make a return, more interactive moments between matches or even WWE titles defended during regular TV Show events in the Universe. Universe mode has been the most lopsided feature with so much potential never that tapped in. If only 2K can add new features without sacrificing what’s already successful will 2K15 become the face of the series.
I believe that 2K knows what’s best for business, showing proof this October.
