 Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto: Online

Pretty much a year ago and a bit I was loading up Grand Theft Auto V onto my PS3 because that’s what you do when the latest and greatest game series is released… on the PS3 and Xbox 360 only. So basically I was downgrading controllability from my previous super-fun experience on PC with GTAIV and going to the archaic PS3 with it’s 10 year old hardware and… well it has a Blu-Ray player so that’s pretty good.

Top 4 games we want to play in 2015: Steph’s picks

Happy New Year everyone! We at Kokstars are ringing in 2015 by sharing the games we are looking forward to with you.

Resident Evil: Revelations II

Resident Evil Revelations 2

I never used to play horror games but I enjoy Resident Evil because we can play it co-op. Chronologically this game takes place between Resident Evil 5 and 6. I still won’t watch zombie movies (unless it’s like Zombieland) but now I like playing zombie games because at least you can kill them.

Coming to PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in early 2015

Let the games begin!

Yesterday the world’s largest trade and public video games expo “Gamescom” opened its doors in Cologne for approx. 275.000 visitors. The not entirely surprising Nr. 1 topic is the battle of the giants; Microsoft versus Sony, Xbox One versus Playstation 4.

Since Microsoft offended their fans earlier this year by announcing ridiculous restrictions and more than questionable data collection plans concerning their latest console, Sony had a very good start to the race. Although Microsoft revoked most of the planned restrictions, there are still a few things that are keeping Sony on top – a few days ago, Sony said it had over 1 million preorders for the PS4.

Despite the bumpy start, Microsoft believes in their concept of a media-center / game console / TV / Internet / all-in-one solution – and of course in their phenomenal new Kinect-System, that should provide a new gaming experience.

Just before the Gamescom started, Microsoft announced that there is going to be something “exclusive and unique” that Phil Spencer will present during a press conference on the fair. The speculations go from “it’s only another exclusive game” to “a new piece of hardware that will make the Xbox One the ultimate gaming device”. And indeed, Microsoft is working on a project called the “IllumiRoom”, that could be a game changer in this race. In January this year, Microsoft Research published this video on youtube showing the technique in action: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=re1EatGRV0w

We’ll keep you posted on what Microsoft has up their sleeves and if it is worth it to pick the less powerful, more expensive hardware with more restrictions, or if the Playstation 4 is just too far in the lead.

quantum_break_0-580x322

Batman Arkham Origins Full trailer

1367172339-batman-arkham-origins-2

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…?

You can see it HERE

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

shadow-warrior-art_1280.0_cinema_640.0

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

cod-ghosts-header

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, BatmanNews.com screenshot a tweet from Conroy stated

ConroyArkhamTweet

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
