A Video Gamers Digest
Video Games are a unique media that are enjoyed by people, both young and old worldwide. Adults, teens, and kids all play games to escape to a fantasy world, educate themselves, get up and dance or just socialize with friends.
My aim in creating Games News Network is to build a place where I could show others all the great games, media and news that come out of the industry. It's all about giving back to an industry that has given gamers so much.
Mass Effect 3 get Bonus Content before Release
Mass Effect 3, BioWare's Action/RPG hits stores in March but it is already getting alot of attention. We've already heard that the Demo drops on February 14 and allows you to unlock in-game items. We've also heard that pre-ordering the game entitles you to more items depending on who you buy it from. That's a lot of incentives right? Wrong, EA plans on releasing a series of 8 ME inspired action figures. Each figure, apart from being pretty cool, has packaged with them a card that gives you a code for access to bonus in-game items. This means 8 cards for 8 different pieces of content. But wait there's more. [via GameInformer]
It has also been announced that the Art of Mass Effect Universe artbook will include a download code for the Collector's Rifle when you pre-order from Barnes & Nobles. Those who played ME2 should remember this sweet assault rifle. Along with the collector's rifle the artbook also comes with other content to make your game easier and more enjoyable. The only downside is that it seems these codes(Figures & Book) only work for the PC and Xbox 360 owners of the game leaving PS3 owners out in the cold. [via joystiq]
What do yo think of the different ways of receiving in-game items for ME3 and which will you be getting?
I want to start a weekly series of discussion post where a topic is picked and we have an open discussion of our thoughts and opinions. I have a few topics in mind but I open the floor to suggestions. In the video game industry, today's games usually have several modes unique to them. Two of those modes, single-player and multiplayer have become a norm for most game. Single-player is all about experiencing the story behind the game, watching beautifully rendered cut scenes and getting to know the main character(s). Multiplayer on the other hand is all about interacting with multiply players across the world while adhering to the game world and mechanics. There are a variety of different multiplayer game types, players may individually compete against two or more human contestants, work cooperatively to achieve a goal, or engage in a game type that incorporates any combination mentioned above. In the past few years the line between the two modes have started to blur, you can
Sony and Sucker Punch have announced today Ghost of Tsushima: Legends a free piece of DLC coming to their game later this fall. It's a new online cooperative multiplayer mode. It's a new experience outside of the standalone game and does not feature Jin. "We designed Legends to be an exclusively cooperative gameplay experience. You’ll be able to partner up with friends or via online matchmaking and play Legends in groups of 2-4 players. Each player can choose from one of four different character classes: the Samurai, Hunter, Ronin, or Assassin. Each class has unique advantages and abilities that we’ll reveal in the future." Ghost of Tsushima: Legends offers a Survival mode with enemies getting increasingly more difficult as you progress including a new Oni enemies with supernatural abilities. In addition, there will be a 4-player Raid made available after Legends gets released. Checkout the trailer and press release for further details. I'm excited to try this
I have to say, the more I see of Watchdogs Legion, the more I can't wait to get my hands on it. Watchdogs Legion is shaping up to be quite the ambitious game. This trailer shows us some more of the characters we can recruit and play as: from the run-of-the-mil to a professional. We even get a glimpse of this games "bad-guy". Watchdogs Legion is set to be release this October 12th. What I really like is the player choice in this game. We can recruit based on our play-style.
