The Newest Creature Addition to ARK is Huge

about X hours ago from

The pantheon of creatures keeps on rolling out for ARK: Survival Evolved. The latest addition is the aptly named Giganotosaurus; a reptile that very much looks like a Tyrannosaurus Rex that's been fed a healthy diet of growth hormones.Like so many of the dinosaurs in ARK, the Giganotosaurus was a real-life dinosaur found mainly in the area of the world we now call Argentina (the dinosaurs referred to it as "the place where that big-ass dinosaur lives.")ARK: Survival Evolved is still in Early Access, but there's a lot of content in place there to satisfy your open-world roaming/survival needs. Provided, that is, another title hasn't captured your fascination today...

Bloodborne Update Will Add New Covenant, New NPCs

Bloodborne Update Will Add New Covenant, New NPCs

We are a few weeks away from the Old Hunters DLC arriving for Bloodborne, but there's some more good news for all you hunters out there. The PlayStation Blog recently posted that a big update to the game will be arriving prior to the DLC's release. This update will add a new covenant (or oath) to the game that sounds like it will be more co-op focused.Called "The League," hunters who taken on this oath can assist others in their games and this will somehow align to an online leaderboard. No information on how any of that works, or what potential rewards there may be, but hey, the leader of the League is a guy with a bucket helmet... so there's that. To ensure you're getting the most out of your co-op, more NPCs are being added as well so you can summon them if the human variety of hunters aren't available. These NPCs can be summoned using a new item, The League Cane. These additions will be free for everyone, regardless if you purchase the Old Hunters DLC.The Old Hunters DLC arrives November 24.

Battleborn Delayed to May

Battleborn Delayed to May

Gearbox tweeted out yesterday that its new IP, Battleborn, won't be arriving now until May 3, pushing it back about three months from its original release date of February 9, 2016. That may be a good move on the developer's part to refine parts of the game.There was a closed technical test run last weekend to test out the network, and while participants signed an NDA to prohibit discussing the game, Gearbox has been giving press time with the game since E3. Most impressions of it have pegged the title as being pretty average; nothing outstandingly bad, but nothing outstandingly good that would give it the same longevity Borderlands has enjoyed. This is particularly important for Battleborn as it will be facing stiff competition from Blizzard's FPS MOBA-style game, Overwatch.Three months is a lot of time to make major changes to the game, especially when one factors in time to submit builds to Microsoft and Sony for bug testing, but hopefully this delay will prove to be a good thing for Gearbox and they'll be able to make enough tweaks to make Battleborn more prominent.

Zombie Vikings Co-Op Review

Zombie Vikings Co-Op Review

Video games, as a whole, have been mining Norse Mythology for ideas and story beats since someone said “let’s implement a story as to why these pixels just stabbed these other pixels.” And why not, right? Nordic myths are chock full of good versus evil, insurmountable odds, stalwart heroes, monsters and/or dragons, and a body count on par with any entry in Call of Duty. Mix all of that up with the whole “the world’s doomed” motif, and you’ve got yourself a solid video game premise. If, however, you seized hold of Norse mythology and substituted every ounce of sincerity for slapstick and cultural references, you would probably come up with something like Zombie Vikings.

Consoles Get a Borderlands Triple Pack, Evolve Ultimate Edition for the Holidays

2K Games is getting ready for that holiday shopping season we're about to be hearing so much about. Two of its heavy-hitting properties are rolling out in special console package editions so you'll have something to do instead of sit with your family while they eat stuffed birds: Evolve turns ultimate, and Borderlands turns triple.The Evolve Ultimate Edition includes the base game (duh), along with both hunting season passes and the monster expansion pack. It's currently available on Xbox One and PS4 for a hair under $60. In the Borderlands camp, the all three titles are being stuffed together, complete with every piece of DLC and extra character pack, all in one collection. It's scheduled to hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on November 17 for around %50. Yes, it's like the Handsome Collection but with Borderlands 1 and only for previous-gen consoles.And... that's pretty much it. Nothing ground-breaking, just another tidy way to get bundled and bettered versions of your games on your console system.

Meet Evolve's New Monster: The Gorgon

about X hours ago from

Evolve's stance on alien life is pretty clear: blow it to pieces before it devours you. That might seem a bit violent and certainly unscientific, but come on. Look at that thing. If there's an alien race out there even remotely similar to the baddies in Evolve, our one approach can only be a tactical nuclear strike. The ranks of Evolve's beasties just got a little more gnarly with the inclusion of the newest monster: the Gorgon. She's got a certain nightmarish quality guaranteed to terrify you and your buddies, at least until her acid dissolves you from the inside out.This fine lady launched on November 3rd, so if you were looking to amp up the evil of your Evolve missions, you can go ahead and jump on her.
