News: Dead or Alive 5 Last Round Announced, Trailer Inside

There’s another Dead or Alive heading onto home console in the shape of Dead or Alive 5 Last Round.

Team Ninja announced the upcoming fighter today at Japan’s Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate Arcade Summer Carnival tournament.

Dead or Alive 5 Last Round is set to release on the PS4 and Xbox One as well as the old-gen consoles, the PS3 and Xbox 360.

When will it be available? Well, Japan will be smashing each other to bits in scantily clad, digital females early Spring next year and there’s no release date set for the UK, Europe or North America. It’s safe to assume there will be a release in Western territories at some point, possibly later on in 2015.

If you want to get some hands on play time with Dead or Alive 5 Last Round, you can play a demo next month at The Fall Classic in Raleigh, North Caroline. There’s not a lot of time to get a go of the demo, it’ll only be available from October 10th until the 12th.

Some may be disappointed in the fact that it’s releasing across both new-gen and last-gen consoles, but the name of the game is money and as such, Koei Tecmo will want to make the game accessible to as a many players as possible.

Finally, there’s also a teaser trailer to go along with announcement, so go ahead and direct your peepers South way to get a cheeky look at whats to come.

Have you got another round left in you? Or are you burnt out with the Dead or Alive franchise? Sucker punch us down below for suggesting such an atrocity.

News: Resident Evil HD Trailer Released

Capcom has released the first Resident Evil HD trailer for the PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

The upcoming survival-horror adventure will be releasing with the ability to run at 1080p, but only on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. Players on the last gen consoles will have to make do with sub-1080p, but will still be able to enjoy the features present in the next-gen and PC release, such as the ability to play in the original old-school aspect ratio of 4:3, or stick with the updated 16:9 widescreen option.

In addition, there are two control schemes to choose from. Players can either stick to the titles roots and play in the classic control set-up or they can opt for the updated and much more user-friendly mode.

Resident Evil HD is actually a re-release of a re-release, if you can get your head around it. Resident Evil HD first appeared on the Nintendo Gamecube way back in 2002.

This latest release will launch on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC sometime in the first quarter of 2015.

In the meantime, check out the first Resident Evil HD trailer below.

News: Minecraft Updates To Stop On Xbox 360 & PS3

Minecraft for the PS3 and Xbox 360 will one day be technically unsupportable, according to Mojang’s Owen Hill.

For the time being 4J studios still intends to frequently update the title on the older consoles, in fact they hope to be able to keep all platforms on the same page for as long as is possible.

However, due to hardware limitations within the Xbox 360 and PS3 there will come a day when no more updates will be available for Minecraft. When will this day come? We haven’t a clue at the moment, but it’s not worth fretting over just yet.

4J Studios has ported the indie blockbuster to the Xbox 360, PS3 and more recently the PS4 and Xbox One consoles, though the latter versions are awaiting certification from Sony and Microsoft. A PS Vita version is also in development, but has recently been delayed.

Maybe it’s time to jump the old ship and join the next-gen crew? Or purchase the PC version?

News: 12GB PS3 Will No Longer Play GTA V Online

Bad news for those of you who purchased the cheap and cheerful 12GB PS3, you won’t be able to play GTA V online anymore.

Rockstar recently confirmed this by stating that if there’s not enough room on the consoles hard-drive, you won’t be able to access the online portion of the open-world game.

However, you will be able to access the single-play component of GTA V, you’ll just have to make sure that you’re not connected to the PlayStation Network.

Maybe now is a good time to invest in a bigger hard drive… In fact, it’s definitely time to invest in a bigger hard drive! With all the price-cuts and promotions and free PlayStation Plus games being added every month, you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss out. In the mean time if you are a PlayStation Plus member with the meager 12GB of hard drive space, make sure you add all the appropriate freebies to your download list for the future.

News: LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham Busts Bricks This November

Warner Bros. has announced that LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will be smashing its way onto shop shelves this November 14th.

The Caped Crusader and friends will be, as the games title suggests, traipsing beyond the familiar setting of Gotham City and off out into different cities, planets and even the final frontier, space.

With over 150 playable characters lined up, there’s sure to be enough there for the casual fans of DC’s works as well as some throwbacks that only the hardcore followers will appreciate.

As you can expect from long-time developer of the LEGO series of games, Travellers Tales isn’t shaking up the tried and tested formula too much with the latest outing. Players will still be smashing everything in sight to collect those precious studs all the whilst figuring out simple puzzles and fending off the evil-doers with some super-hero smack down. What’s not to like?

LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will be releasing on November 14th for the PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U, 3DS, PS Vita and of course the PC.

News: PS Plus Content For Septemeber Spoils You Rotten

Sony has just announced the PS Plus line up for September, revealing the goodies that will be available to download come September 3rd.

For PS4 owners there’s two treats to get stuck into with Velocity 2X and Sportsfriends which comes highly recommended from The Games Cabin! Both are indie games, but that doesn’t mean they’re not worth your time. Be sure to nab both titles when they enter the Instant Game Collection, and if you’re not left satisfied then I’ll eat a replica of John Marston’s hat from Red Dead Redemption.

The PS3 is also playing host to two new titles in the Instant Game Collection. The fantastic brawler PlayStation All Stars Battle Royale and the fast-paced strategy game that is Hoard.

Finally the PS Vita. With two new titles being introduced to the Instant Game Collection you’ll find a reason to take your poor PS Vita from your desk, wipe off the dust and let it see the light of day. TxK will be blasting you back to the past with its bold and bright visuals reminiscent of the arcade games from the early 90′s whilst Joe Danger swaggers onto your Vita’s screen with equally glorious visuals, all running at 60 FPS.

Not a bad haul for the price of your subscription. Of course, there will always be some who will be left disappointed by the offerings of PlayStation Plus. Chances are you already own or have played one or two of the titles that are due to arrive in September. Still, there’s always October…

What do you think of the latest PlayStation Plus update? Happy with whats being thrown your way, or are you feeling the bitter taste of buyers remorse? Let us know down in the comments section below.

Feature: Top 5 X-Men Games

X-Men: Days of Future Past hit cinemas in the last week, raking in the money and garnering great reviews here’s mine. Surprisingly, for a film this big with a massive hype machine behind it, there was no official videogame to try and part us from our hard-earned cash. So, if you’re in the need for a game to give you your mutant fix, we’ve got a top 5 to sort you out. The only rule is the game needs to have X-Men in the title, so Marvel Vs Capcom 2 is out, but our number five should make up for that…

X-Men Vs Street Fighter

The first official entry into the ‘Vs’ series (although its predecessor, X-Men: Children of the Atom, is Capcom’s first fighting game using Marvel characters) pits the Cyclops, Wolverine and co. against Street Fighter favourites like Zangief and Kylie Minogue (I mean, Cammy) because of… something to do with Apocalypse. The genesis of the legendary Vs games can be seen here, with colourful and crazy combat and tight controls. The tag mechanic was introduced here, allowing you to take two characters into battle for double the fun.

xvs-s2

That is, on the arcade version anyway. The PSone port suffers from poor loading times, missing frames and the tag feature. If you can find the original arcade version somewhere, or have a way we’re not going to tell you to play the Japanese only Saturn port, then you are going to have a blast with this one. Or just play Marvel Vs Capcom. Or X-Men: Mutant Academy. Actually don’t do the last one, it was pretty lame.

X-Men: Mutant Apocalypse

Before the rivalries of iOS vs Android, Xbox vs PlayStation and Pokemon vs Digimon there was the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis (or Mega Drive if you live outside America). Each system has a competing side scrolling action platformer based on the merry Mutants and fans continue to debate which one was better.

59859-x-men-mutant-apocalypse-snes-screenshot-the-x-men-and-x-girls

Personally, I’ve already preferred the SNES and Mutant Apocalypse is part of that reason. Each of the five characters had their own mission to follow through as part of a bigger plan to sort out the problems in Genosha caused by Apocalypse. Except… Magneto is actually the final boss. I guess being called Mutant Mangeto doesn’t have that ring to it…

X- Men Arcade

Probably the most famous X-Men title out there, this game is all sorts of cheesy goodness. We were blessed by the game gods at Konami for giving us “Magneto, Master of Magnet” and “The White Queen welcomes you to die” in all their hammy glory. Of course, the game is (correctly) fondly remembered for its gameplay too. A recurring theme of this list is about the X-Men beating people up and for good reason: I can’t imagine a Farmville type game where Storm waters the plants and Wolverine trims the hedges would do very well.

xmios11

Like the classic Turtles in Time, X-Men Arcade is about going from screen to screen clearing all your enemies out of the way with just your trusty jump and attack buttons, with the occasional (and costly) mutant power thrown in for good measure. The nineties were built on these kinds of games and X-Men is one of the standouts. The HD port for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade is well worth picking up, with drop in/out online and local multiplayer carnage. Avoid the smartphone version however, whilst it costs pennies, its tough to control and takes all the fun out of the most fun X-Men game.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine

Isn’t it ironic the worst X film by a mile gets the best movie tie-in by a mile? X2: Wolverine’s Revenge wasn’t bad, laying the foundations for this triumph by focusing just on the one character. Origins takes liberally (pinches everything) from God of War and to its credit, does it very, very well. This game is amusing gory, especially with the real-time healing factor system in which your skin patches itself up after being shot, sliced or burnt off. Wolverine may be a tragic character with a horrific past, but playing this game, you understand just how cool it is to cut people up with adamantium claws. Swings and roundabouts.7

xmen-origins-wolverine-game

So, this game loosely follows the dreadful movie plot (which means Hugh Jackman – woo!- and will.i.am -boo!- on voice duties) but throws a lot of other characters from the comics at you for good fanservice. The classic unlockable costumes are a plus too, its nice to see the movie franchise include easter eggs that link to the comics. This isn’t up there with the first two Arkham games when it comes to revolutionary solo-superhero games, but it is mighty satisfying to play through.

So, if Arcade nails the unbridled fun, and Origins gets the franchise’s most iconic character down to a T, what can top them to take the number one spot? It has to be something legendary…

X-Men Legends

It was pretty difficult choosing between this and the sequel, Rise of Apocalypse, but a few things swing it in the direction of the original. You get more characters to play in number two, but they took out my favourites, Emma Frost and Psylocke. The sequel has a lot more generic, repetitive environments, and the music is equally so. The original also has a much sleeker menu design, with a nice shade of blue and a pleasing font compared to the harsh red menus and EVERYTHING IN CAPS of the sequel. It’s a little thing, but it counts. If you’re looking for a good multiplayer experience, you should go with Rise of Apocalypse, because the hub sections are much shorter and there are no one player segments, meaning you aren’t far from jumping into action with your friends.

xmenlegends

However, this is the main reason why I prefer the original over the second and every other X-Men game. You see, the story of X-Men Legends follows a young girl named Alison who discovers her mutant powers and gets thrown into the conflict between the X-Men and the Brotherhood, joining Xavier’s School for the Gifted and the superhero team as things progress. In-between missions you spend a lot of downtime in the mansion just… talking to the other X-Men and pupils. And I love that. Magma is a great audience perspective character and its fascinating to see her reactions to everything around her (it helps she’s voiced by the always excellent Cree Summer). Just being able to hang with the X-Men during down-time from world saving gives you a level of immersion into the world of these Mutant heroes not seen in any game before or since. The combat is fun but perhaps not quite as good as X-Men Arcade, and the action isn’t presented as cinematic or as well as Wolverine, but for bringing you into the world of Charles Xavier and his pupils, you can’t top this PS2/Xbox/Gamecube classic.

If you like what you’ve read and want even more of my ramblings about the X-Men, you can read my spirited defence of X-Men 3: The Last Stand right here. If you have a Top 5 to suggest, or agree/disagree with this list. Post in the comments below.

News: Crytek To Showcase Two New Titles At E3, Possibly Homefront 2

Some interesting news coming from Italy; Crytek will be showing off two new titles at this years E3 gathering in Los Angeles.

GameVillage.it reports that the firm will be showing two new titles, one of which will be Arena of Fate which is to be a PC only shooter, most likely to be released under a free-to-play model.

The second title, known only as Project Grave is also to be displayed at E3, though very few details are know about the game, so whether it’s an exclusive or a multiplatform title remains to be seen, though rumour has it that Project Grave could be Homefront 2.

Crytek aquired the rights to the Homefront franchise during the auctioning off of THQ’s assets, and we know that Homefront 2 is in development by Crytek UK, so maybe we’ll get a glimpse this Summer.

Victory is achieved by either capturing 2 control points and keeping hold of them, wiping out the entire opposing team or snagging all 3 control points to win instantly.

News: Watch Dogs Has Gone Gold, New Trailer Inside

Ubisoft’s upcoming open-world adventure, Watch Dogs, has now gone gold.

What does that mean? Well it means that the master disc is ready, the disc from which all subsequent copies will be made from. Exciting!

Watch Dogs was originally intended to release late last year, but Ubisoft decided to post-pone the release to improve the game and iron out the issues, ensuring that players get the best possible game on release.

Watch Dogs is a brand new IP from Ubisoft, the same company responsible for the highly successful and critically acclaimed Assassin’s Creed series, as well as the Splinter Cell and Prince of Persia series, amongst others.

Watch Dogs will be releasing on May 27th for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. The Wii U version is slated for a summer release, though at this time there’s no solid release date for the Nintendo version.

May 27th is less than 2 weeks away, but from where we’re sitting it seems like an eternity. In the mean time, why not pour over the latest trailer which you can find down below.

Looking forward to getting your mitts on Watch Dogs? Which platform will you be hacking away on? Let us know down in the comments section below.

Watch Dogs

Update: Watch Dogs Resolution & Framerate Announced

Yesterday we wrote that Sony had removed a sentence from their website stating that Watch Dogs would run at 60 frames per second at 1080p, prompting much discussion as to what the actual frame rate and resolution will be for the PS4 version, as well as the Xbox One.

Today we have confirmation on both counts for the PS4 and Xbox One versions. Both versions will be running at 30 frames per second, not the previously rumoured 60, whilst the PS4 will be running at 900p with the Xbox One version running a little lower at 792p.

Explained over on Ubisofts official website, Jonathan Morin states the reason for the lower resolution and framerate for both consoles that with other next-gen titles.

“Resolution is a number, just like framerate is a number. All those numbers are valid aspects of making games,” says Jonathon Morin. “But you make choices about the experience you want to deliver. In our case, dynamism is everything. Exploration and expression are everything. You want to have a steady framerate, but you want to have dynamism at the core of the experience. The same goes with resolution. People tend to look at corridor shooters, for example, where there’s a corridor and all the effects are on and it’s unbelievable, and they forget that if you apply those same global effects to an open city with people around and potential car crashes and guys in multiplayer showing up without warning, the same effect is applied to a lot of dynamic elements that are happening in every frame. So it becomes magnified in cost.”

So there we have it, the rumours can be put to bed and we can all move on.

Watch Dogs is set to release on May 27th on the PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The Wii U version is due out later this summer, though no actual release date has yet been announced.

call of duty 2014

Rumour: Call of Duty Blacksmith To Be Revealed Next Week

More Call of Duty rumours are appearing online, with the latest being that the upcoming title will be revealed during the first week of May and that it is being referred to internally as Call of Duty Blacksmith.

This is hardly a surprise as we mentioned last week that Activision tends to announce the yearly Call of Duty during the first week of May, year after year. It would mean that the title will be revealed before E3, though you can be sure that Activision and Sledgehammer Games will use E3 to fuel the hype that will no doubt surround the shooter over the next 6 months.

Call of Duty Blacksmith is most likely just a code name for the title, so expect the actual name to be revealed during the reveal event sometime in the next few days.

Speculation on what Call of Duty Blacksmith could be is rife, with some suggesting that the title could be a continuation of the Modern Warfare saga, so Modern Warfare 4. However, it’s entirely possible that Sledgehammer could be working on their own story, for now we will have to wait and see.

Sledgehammer, Treyarch and Infinity Ward are all working on separate Call of Duty titles, each being given a three year development cycle in the hope that the extra time will create better games. Whether this pays off or not is yet to be seen.

Call of Duty Blacksmith will most likely release across all platforms, with the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC being the lead platforms. Whether we will see a PS Vita version this year remains to be seen.

Expect Call of Duty Blacksmith to release around October/November this year. Keep checking back in with The Games Cabin for updates!

TGC Review: LEGO The Hobbit (PS4)

Traveller’s Tales is back again with yet another LEGO based title, though this time they’re tackling the realms of Middle Earth with LEGO The Hobbit.

So how does the latest entry fare when stacked up against previous efforts? Not too badly, not too badly at all.

As you would expect, the game revolves around the events of The Hobbit trilogy of films, or two thirds of it at least…

Even if you aren’t the biggest fan of the movies, there’s enough here to keep any veteran LEGO gamer entertained. LEGO The Hobbit guides you through the first two films, putting you in the hairy toes of Hobbits, the whipping capes of Wizards and the haggard beards of Dwarves, along with the rest of them. Whilst the movies are typically quite serious, LEGO The Hobbit manages to inject some classic LEGO trademark humour to lighten the mood. The story is told through the gameplay as well as the cutscenes that feature the actual voices of the actual characters as the audio has been taken from the movies and inserted into the game. It makes it much easier to understand the story if you aren’t too familiar with the source material.legothegame2

There’s a few new additions to the gameplay, crafting being the top billed feature. It’s not especially difficult and in all honesty, it’s a bit tedious. At certain times during your adventure you’ll have to craft items to get past certain points, the first time you come across a crafting point, it seems like a pretty cool addition, after that it just becomes a bit of a chore.

There’s a fair amount to do and see after you’ve finished the main game. You can grab a buddy and go back through the story in co-op mode which is a much better way to enjoy LEGO The Hobbit as sometimes the AI can be a brick shy of retarded. As well as co-op there’s the side quests scattered around the open-world area of Middle Earth that you are free to explore. These serve no use other than to fill the gap, but they are a welcome addition for those who love to collect everything that they can, and it is essential if you’re going for all the Trophies.

Graphically the game holds it’s own. Though it is a LEGO game and they’ve never been lauded for their outstanding visual prowess, the game does perform admirably with characters moving as you would expect little LEGO people to move, the environments are full of life and detail making it just that little bit better.

Though it’s a solid game, it’s not without its shortcomings. Traveller’s Tales have been crafting these LEGO games for almost ten years now, you’d have thought that in that time they would have nailed down the camera issues. Each LEGO game has had issues with the camera, LEGO The Hobbit is no different. I can attribute 90% of my in-game deaths due to the dodgy camera and its inability to move in the way I needed it too, leading to some frustrating deaths during the platforming sections.

As well as the camera issues, there’s the characters, not the lack of and not the abundance of, but more their appearance. So many of them look alike that it makes switching between characters a pain in the neck, though this is more a personal issue than one that affects the overall game experience.

One issue that is worth bringing up is the fact that the game is only two of the three movies. How will we play the last chapter in the trilogy? Will it be released as DLC or will we be subjected to a full priced release, akin to LEGO Indiana Jones 2: The Adventure Continues.

Conclusion:

It’s the same game we’ve been playing for the past decade, just with a different lick of paint and a few new features every other release. Sounds like another long-running franchise… Except in the case of the LEGO titles, it’s not a bad thing. If it’s not broken, don’t fix it. The gameplay is tight, the graphics are glossy and the replay value is high. What more could one want?

Score: 8/10
