Humble bundle Raises $ 10.5 million for charity

Humble Origin Bundle_678x452

remember the company that has been named the worst in America for two years running yea its not Activision its EA has raised a whopping $10.5 million dollars for charity so what is the humble origin bundle? well i’m glad you asked, the humble bundle is a series of collections “bundles” that are digitally distributed and at a price determined by the purchaser. These bundles are typically offered on a two week basis they also offer additional media around mid week that is only available if you pay more then average. Which is a great idea.

EA has decided to give the money earned through the sales directly to charities like: the American Red Cross, Watsi, the San Francisco AIDS Foundation, The Human Rights Campaign and the American Cancer Society.

EA has also broken records prior to the Humble Origin Bundle, the previous bundle was the Humble Indie Bundle 5 which raised $5.1 million.

Angry Birds GO!


Back when Angry birds first came out it was fun some still find it fun and its multiple versions of the game have added new and interesting ways to essentially kill pigs without getting any bacon which it think is a waste. And its all fun and games until we go to singapore and get spamed with that stuff from the large rocket ship what was in terminal 3 to a angry birds themed kids area it gets old real fast.

but now they have announced that they are making a kart based racer… is there real potential here? or is going to be a mad gimmick designed to once again spam us with more pig killing birds. they announced it thru a video that featured Rovio’s Kalle Kaivola and how the team had a break thru when they saw their Red bull angry birds kart fall apart… god that was a mouth full.

Okay now I see the potential with a franchise devoted on destroying things and maybe some heavy customising could be a great plan maybe a few power ups like ModNation racing.

It may or may not be as cool as i think it will be but lets just hope that they wont fully target the 5-8 age range.

Eidos Shows Deus Ex: The Fall Teaser


Back in March a trademark for “Deus Ex: The Fall” was registered and even I was speculating it was either a movie or sequel to Human Revolution and with this very very short teaser we can say that something is coming.

You can see the teaser HERE

Zynga Closes Studios


The giant rolling boulder witch is Zynga has come to a slow drag as three of their studios were closed leaving 520 employees or 18% of their workforce out of a job.

The exact figures come from AllThingsD, Offices in McKinney and Austin TX will be closed in addition to two others in New York City and baltimore. The following the announcement that Zynga stock dived 10% (and is still dropping)

It seems that their Boom on to social platforms such as farmville gave them such a big success that they felt that moving on to mobile platforms was a good idea. And now it had backfired leaving lots of talented people out of a job.

This move will Cut $80 million in payroll costs from the bottom line which will allow them to return to profitability, But no matter how good it may be for Zynga this is terrible news for developers who no longer have an income.

We at Kokstars wish the best for all involved

Plants VS. Zombies 2


So one of my favorite strategy games of all time is getting a sequel and its not the same and yet it is.

Plants VS. Zombies 2: It’s about time has been shown off by Popcap and its coming July 18 exclusivly for iOS platforms as a Free-to-play with micro-transactions.

You can see the trailer HERE but its not gameplay (duh) but it does say somthing about whats coming more zombie killing action, traffic cones, time travel and Crazy Dave. the new game will be free to play but PopCap says that the “Vast majority” of the game will remain free.

“We’re confident that players will see the love and attention we’ve put into this game,” said senior producer Allen Murray in a press release announcing the release date.

“We’ve created wild new ways to experience the plants and zombies you know and love as well as packing the game with tons of completely new content, and we’re still hard at work coming up with even more cool stuff that will keep Plants vs. Zombies 2 fresh and evolving in the months and years following launch.”

Double Fine hits goal with second Kickstarter


With 22 days left of funding Massive Chalice has crossed its goal of $725,000 and has 21,338 backers and $793,105.

In the first week Lead game designer Brad Muir spoke to GameIndustry about the project:

“I was really nervous going into it. There were a lot of risks with this project. It’s a brand-new IP, it’s not based on some legacy game or nostalgic property. It’s not a Tim [Schafer] game. So I was really nervous when we launched it, but it’s been a pretty awesome day.”

Muir also spoke about failing to sell his last game idea Brazen.

“The previous game that I was working on, called Brazen, I had been pitching that game for an entire year. That was a tough sell, trying to pitch that game to publishers. I don’t want to name any names, but the stop-motion aesthetic—that game was based on the Ray Harryhausen stop-motion animations—was always the sticking point. That people wouldn’t relate to it or think it was cool.

This was just a bunch of businessmen, like suits around a table. It was very hard for me to listen to their opinions of what gamers might actually like. It’s a very weird thing, taking your ideas to a small group of businessmen and having them tell you whether they think it’s going to sell or not. I don’t think they always know best. That’s the cool thing about this idea. This idea is brand-new. We haven’t taken this idea to anyone. We developed it and took it straight to the backers.”

Batman Arkham Origins Full trailer


Now i do love me my comic books and it goes without saying i love batman so here is the extended trailer from the first teaser that we saw. It looks better every time and we see more then just batman and deathstroke so i have kinda put together what I think its going to be Black mask has put either a bounty on batman’s head or hes hired mercenaries to kill hime either way m going to say that this isn’t the last time we see deathstroke and deadshot. There is a little hint that we may run into a fellow hero maybe Green Arrow…?

Hardware Shipbreakers


A supposedly 3D RTS  revolutioniser showed off a story for baserunner which is a 6 wheeled moster that looks like it conquer the dakar with no issues theses mosters were the building point for a war and is i think either a mobile base or the work horse that we build from gathering and mining resources but it looks pretty and i hope its awesome cos I love space stuff and it will be great to have a RTS that I wont be swamped by a south korean.

You can see it HERE

Shadow Warrior


Now I dont know much about this game but its a reboot of a 1997 game developed by Flying wild hog but it eliminated the multi-player aspects and will avoid racial stereotyping and misogyn. but the teaser is a bit mysterious other then the slaughter of some gards and the japanese theme.

You can see it HERE 

Call of Duty Ghosts


Great another COD game im no fan of the COD series and its not something I hide, when i see some 12 year old wearing a COD shirt I always just want to burn it but they seem to have struck gold in the repetition of gameplay and half arising a story on it as well but they may have actually put some effort in to this one oh wait ive heard the name ghosts some where…. where was it umm…. oh thats right Ghost Recon so

you can see the trailer HERE if you want…. to be lame. And loose all respect from me.

More Batman stuff

 At the Dallas Comic-Con we found out the guy who does the Ezio voice will be voicing Bats.

But this is not the big news, screenshot a tweet from Conroy stated


WHAAAAAAAAA….. obviously he wasent supposed to let the Bat out of the bag but now we know that there is another Arkham game in development and we got our batman back probably by the real Arkham developers, Rocksteady Studios it was unthinkable that the rest of the Arkham games would be developed by anyone other then Rocksteady. Thank you Kevin you have given us all hope again

‘Frostbite GO’


Battlefield 4 for phones?

EA is currently working on a mobile version of the awesome engine for the iOS and Android titled Frostbite Go. the news game from and states that

One of our most exciting current projects is called Frostbite Go, a mobile division empowering EA game developers with Frostbite’s proven excellent workflows and features to bring true Frostbite experiences to all major mobile platforms.

From what we know the standard titles from EA on iOS and android will use it but im wondering if they will allow it to be used by anyone like the UDK. But the experience that I have gotten when playing a FPS on my phone was that it pained be to play it even when my opponents are 11 year olds.
