Just Cause 3 Is Making Destruction Even More Awesome

Just Cause 3 Is Making Destruction Even More Awesome

I dig a world that feels limitless. Just Cause has always fed the adrenaline junkie in me with its over-the-top explosions and antics. The next entry isn't changing any of that. In fact, just when you think the series couldn't get even more insane, it has, and you're doing it on a breathtaking Mediterranean-inspired island that has plenty of cliffs, caves, and water for all your extreme ventures. And, of course, the explosions are bigger than ever.

Just Cause is all about the creativity in how you play. You're thrown into a world where nothing seems off-limits. Everything is physics-based and it feels like if you can imagine it you can do it. At a recent Square Enix press event, I got my hands on the game, and laughed a great deal at all the crazy things you can do.

A First Look At GHTV And Its Microtransactions

about X hours ago from

Guitar Hero Live’s reveal in April gave players a glimpse of the game’s eponymous mode, but this week, we got our first look at GHTV. The mode was previously announced as a playable streaming music service, but we now have a much better idea of what to expect when the game launches later this year.

Guitar Hero Live puts players in the shoes of the guitarist of one of several live action bands. The first-person view aims to give players a better feel of what it takes to stand on-stage in front of a crowd of adoring – or ridiculing – fans. The concept of interactive FMVs has a questionable track record in the games industry, but when I checked out it out in April, I was impressed by the level of authenticity it brought. Though we did check out six songs (including the three I played two months ago) in Guitar Hero Live, the focus of the demo was GHTV, which does away with the first-person live action in favor of playing the music over a music video or live concert footage of the actual band.

New Intel For Metal Gear Online

about X hours ago from

Metal Gears fans anxiously await the release of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain on September 1, and apart from being able to continue the story from Ground Zeroes, players will also get to play the latest iteration of Metal Gear Online. Konami hasn't talked a lot about this aspect of MGS V, but here are a few new details.

A key component to MGO are forward operating bases or FOBs. These are related to the Mother Base of your single-player campaign, but are separate installations that serve as the battlegrounds of MGO. In the multiplayer component of MGS V you'll attack and defend FOBs for resources and other spoils in 8v8 battles (or 6v6 on the older systems). Your single-player Mother Base does have an optional online component whereby you can infiltrate friends' bases, but this is separate from Metal Gear Online.

The single-player component of MGS V, however, is related to MGO in that you will be able to carry over some cosmetic extras from MGS V to MGO.

Unravel Is More Than Adorable And Should Be On Your Radar

Unravel Is More Than Adorable And Should Be On Your Radar

When I first saw Unravel during a Pre-E3 event in Santa Monica, it immediately piqued my interest. It wasn't like many games I had seen and there was something so heartfelt about this little yarn doll and its mission to mend the broken bonds between people. I've been thinking about it since the event, waiting patiently for EA to finally share it with the world. Thankfully, it finally unveiled it at its E3 press conference today.

Coldwood Interactive is a small studio in the far north of Sweden that wants to set out to make something meaningful and personal with Unravel. Creative director Martin Sahlin spoke passionately about how he feels if players give him their most valuable gift - their time - it's up to him to make sure they get something special in return. Enter Unravel.

The inspiration for the atmospheric platformer came from a song lyric: "While you're away my heart comes undone and slowly unravels in a ball of yarn." Sahlin kept thinking about the lyric and how it sounded like a game character to him. "[He] unravels more and more, the further away [he] gets away from the things you love," Sahlin says. "The concept grew into, 'What if this yarn is actually kind of symbol the bonds between people?' It's like that red thread that runs through your life and connects everything."

Learn More About Garden Warfare 2 From Our Hands-On With Captain Deadbeard

about X hours ago from

EA and PopCap Games revealed Plants vs. Zombie Garden Warfare 2 today. The zany third-person shooter is getting a new storyline and more over-the-top characters in the sequel. During a Pre-E3 event held in Santa Monica, I went hands-on and discovered more about the game.

PopCap has taken plenty of fan feedback into consideration from the original Garden Warfare and they didn’t want to leave those fans who poured hours into the first game out in the cold.  Not only will there be free content updates after launch, but players will be able to transfer almost every one of their unlocked characters from the first game into Garden Warfare 2.

This time around, Dr. Zomboss has finally taken over suburbia, turning it into Zomburbia, a place for the zombies to live free from persecution. The plants just aren’t going to sit down and take that; they are ready to fight back for control. For the first time, the plants are on the attack, and PopCap has created all new game modes to cater to that, including all new plant bosses. For example, a mode called 24-player Herbal Assault lets you go on the offense as plants and Graveyard Ops is a four-co-op experience where, as the zombies, you must defend against an assault from the plants.
