    WWE Superstars Respond To The First WWE 2K15 Trailer

    September 24th, 2014

    WWE2k15 logo

    It’s almost impossible to not be impressed with the first trailer officially revealed to us. You saw Mark Henry, The Wyatt Family, Triple H, Roman Reigns and so many more my eyes began to tear. Then, they gleamed even more as I realized I’m waiting until November 18th to play this bad boy.

    It was quite authentic as I watch those entrances and I couldn’t even hear the music. I saw RVD perform his signature off the apron to the barricade. I witnessed Bray’s eyes roll behind their head before performing his spider crawl. And most importantly I relived that final moment of Cena crawling to Lesnar right before being smacked in the head by Mr. Money in the Bank. This trailer is EPIC!

    Now the funny side to all of this is that we still haven’t been introduced to a shred of additional visuals like backstage, in-crowd fighting or career. There’s so much more in the bad at the 2K studios. Cena, Cesaro and a handful of other superstars hyped us up, and we’re there! But I’m just wondering now, what will we see between now and November? Time will tell

     

     

    Keep in mind that WWE 2k15 will still launch on October 28th for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. It’s just the next-gen crowd that has to twiddle their thumbs a few weeks longer.

    NBA 2K15 is getting extremely close to release as October is right around the corner. Yesterday 2K Sports revealed a new element in @k15 called MyCareer 101 which will allow your player to be more than just a one man show. In fact attempting to place the letter “I” in team could risk you losing your spot on your team and being traded off elsewhere.

    NBA Live 15 Hands-On Impressions – Night and Day

    September 19th, 2014

    live1

    For the past several years if anyone mentioned playing an NBA game, chances are they were referring to 2K. Neck and neck in 2010, EA Sports released NBA Live 10 while 2K Sports dropped NBA 2K10. But it was the next move that pulled NBA Live out of the limelight; cancelling NBA Elite 11.

    NBA 2K rapidly became “the” household name for basketball fans while others tried holding on to an ounce of hope that Live would make its triumph comeback; EA fans, that year has come. Now I know that may seem rather hard to believe, but the product will definitely speak for itself in less than a month.

    live2

     

    I had the opportunity to play NBA Live 15 and it truly screams for well-deserved recognition. The very first thing that pushes NBA Live 15 to the next level is graphics. NBA Live 14 and 15 in comparison embodies the phrase night and day. Playing as the Cavilers taking on the L.A. Lakers, Lebron was Lebron! The facial details were genuine; tattoos were spot on with much better lighting (similar to Madden NFL 15) and the shoe game is on point, increasing its overall realism and authenticity.

    It’s all well spotted as new camera angles bring the player closer to the court. And with over 1000’s of new animations, including post-play celebrations, prepare to indulge and embrace NBA Live 15.

    The in-game experience has also been revamped. Dribble animations are much smoother in NBA Live 15 giving you better control and responsiveness. In addition, you can sense weight detection as you utilize certain players. Don’t be surprised if it one up 2K15 this year.

    A gift and a curse in NBA Live 15 to some may be shooting free throws. While there are new indicators to help you fine tune each player shot during gameplay, NBA 2K gamers will have a challenge transitioning at the line. In NBA 2K free throws are timed based on when the player begins to release the ball, feeling quite natural. In Live 15 however, the release is based on when your player bends his elbows right before shooting. Just remember, practice makes perfect!

     

    live4

     

    Also, at least in the build I played, commentary has been improved; but just not as fluid as NBA 2K’s. Mike Breen and Jeff Van Gundy is a great duo, but at moments the awkward silence began to creep in. And to those that may have been looking forward to Game Face 2.0 and playing as you, I’m sorry to say this year is a no go. We will at least get much more customization options than Live 14.

    I had the opportunity to talk to NBA Live Producer, Greg Rinaldi. A lot of questions may be answered here, so read in close!

    NBA Live 15 did recently decide to change the release date from October 7th to October 28th. Believe me as I’ve had time to play Live 15, it’s just about ready to hit stores. But with the sole live3purpose of wanting to deliver the best experience this year and earning the loyalty of NBA fans and gamers all over, the Live team wishes to polish a few areas and release right in time for the NBA Season.

    If you’re looking to get your hands on NBA Live 15 mark your calendars for October 23rd; you will be able to fully experience NBA Live 15 five days prior to release via EA Access, exclusively on Xbox One.

    If you’ve seen the trailer for NBA Live 15, know that gameplay is physically just as genuine. I am thoroughly excited to pick up NBA Live 15 this year, a decision that I probably wouldn’t have been as easy a few ago. Rinaldi mentioned NBA Live 15 is “the game that’s meant to be.” I’d second that. NBA Live is Back!

    Let us know what YOU think below.

    WWE 2K15 Detailed Hands-On Impression: I’m A Bo-Liever

    September 16th, 2014

    WWE2k15 logo

     

    Let me go there now and confirm that Visual Concepts tapping into the WWE 2K video game is what was extremely “Best for Business.” When I picked up the PlayStation 4 controller and experienced WWE 2K15, I didn’t just play the game, I embraced it.

    wwe 22215 goldBefore I talk about WWE 2K15 please not that you are reading an impression from an enthusiast that have played WWE dating back to WrestleMania on the original Nintendo Entertainment System. I’ve played WrestleMania 2000, No Mercy, Royal Rumble, Smackdown, Raw; you name it I’ve played it. So as you read “this” preview it shall be no holds barred.

    I like to take a look under the hood, not just the body and cosmetics. So before I focused in-depth on the match itself, I decided to look around and view the game from the audience perspective. So as I look at the arena I noticed the seating which looked quite realistic in comparison to a live event, specifically reminding me of the Houston Toyota Center.

    In every seat were unique character models; Men, Women and children with their own clothing showing off their favorite wrestler’s clothing. An even greater mention was the crowd reaction. In previous versions of WWE games the audio would feel simply dubbed or random chants would fill the atmosphere. However in WWE 2K15, I noticed a few fans physically cheer on or boo wrestlers and yell out one-two counts shown by both face expressions and hand gestures.  You read that right as the crowd looks as genuine as the competitors themselves.

     

    wwe 2k15 sting

     

    Now, let’s step into the ring. We’ve already had the opportunity to look at gameplay, but nothing official to render the true quality of WWE 2K15. And because of it I questioned 2K15, but after playing it just a few times I was hooked!

    The new mini-game requiring you to find your sweet spot on the initial grapple honestly felt a bit too much. Keep in mind it’s also a mode that can be switched off at any time. But when playing online there’s two choices, adapt or perish. But it’s okay, because on November 18th you can not only adapt but even be a winner. All you got to do is Bo-Lieve.

    The fighting mechanics are worth all the marbles. I played using Randy Orton, John Cena and Goldust. I love how authentic the experience has become. As wrestlers become fatigue wwe_2k15 orton 2they no longer bounce back to their feet as fast as they did in WWE 2K14. Instead you see the wear and tear on the superstars through facial expressions and as they slow pace to stand or reach for the ropes. Everything you see in the ring and on TV, you see in 2K15.

    Signatures and Finishers are also revamped allowing you to store them for use at your choice of execution. As the WWE superstars begin to lose their health which is summed as three bars, you can find the best times to perform charged finishers and power pins, screaming on the inside “the champ is here.”

    There were two changes that I found myself needing to adjust to, reversals and kicking out pins. After knowing exactly when to tap that reversal button, timing has now changed based on the situation. Both reversals and kick outs felt to have a bit of a lag to it. Imagine playing a multiplayer match with someone with a horrible connection; that was my “initial” impression. But once I took time to adjust, it was like I never missed a beat.

     

    wwe 2k15

     

    We were given a glimpse of the commentary as new lines were heard from Cole and the King. With it being an early build I can only hope that the old Smackdown commentary will finally be deleted. Respectively I can’t tell you how much I’m tired of hearing Jerry said, “Look at the Gold,” “

    Now there are still so much to know about WWE 2K15 that we can hope will soon be answered. I for one am excited about the new WWE Career mode that will take your personal superstar from the performance center with coaches and mentors to house shows to NXT to Live Shows, ultimately on your way to being crowned WWE Champion.

    WWE-2K15_Cole-and-King-Commentary-630x354And let’s not forget the WWE 2K Showcase that will feature 33 matches highlighting Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H 2002-2004 rivalry and C.M. Punk vs. John Cena from 2011-2013. In addition, Mark Little has confirmed additional rivalries to come as future DLC. In my opinion, a season pass worth investing in.

    I however have my wish list. Will we get to fight in the crowd again as we once have in Smackdown vs. Raw? Will “Fall Count Anywhere” truly mean anywhere? Can we take the fight from backstage to the front arena and vice versa? Can PPV matches once again start with their epic intros? Will Universe 3.0 properly follow with storylines?

    WWE WrestleMania 2000 on Nintendo 64 used to excite me as PPV matches showed the build up to the event. So as an example we could see the past several weeks of WWE Raw highlighting Cena vs Lesnar prior to the main event. Will it ever make its return?

    Believe me when I say that WWE 2K15 will deliver what the WWE Universe have waited years for. To quote Triple H, it’s time to play the game! Innovative is an understatement when explaining 2K15. Thanks to Visual Concepts WWE 2K15 just may be the best wrestling experience ever. WWE 2K15 will release on November 18th, 2014 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

    Death Comes Much Sooner For Dying Light Fans

    September 12th, 2014

    DyingLight_E3_final__2_

    Not quite sure how if this is a good or bad predicament, but expect to risk death sooner than you expected. The Evil Within will be release one month earlier, on January 27th, 2015. I would consider it to be a bit a good news to know that there’s still time to pre-order and receive the exclusive “Be the Zombie” mode.

    “In this competitive asymmetric multiplayer mode, you invade other players’ games as the Night Hunter – an ultimate zombie with a unique set of deadly skills. By playing as the Night Hunter, you turn into a fast, agile and dangerous predator, whose objective is to hunt down human survivors.”

    Techland will present Dying Light on January 27th for PC, Xbox 360 Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 console. In case you missed the first episode, enjoy the new Dev Diary “Natural Movement”
