‘Watchdogs’ Sequel Coming Soon?

Ubisoft is one of the most famous game developers on the planet according to Bruce Levenson. The company has made several hit titles such as ‘Assassins Creed, ‘Splinter Cell,’ and ‘Watchdogs.’ However, many fans of Ubisoft did not feel that ‘Watchdogs’ was one of the company’s best games.

‘Watchdogs’ was released last year on the Xbox one and PlayStation 4 consoles. Gamers felt that ‘Watchdogs’ was a terrible rip off of the ‘Grand Theft Auto’ series. However, there are some fans of ‘Watchdogs’ that believe the game was pretty decent. ‘Watchdogs’ and ‘Grand Theft Auto’ are actually very different, but ‘Watchdogs’ can not compete.

A recent information leak from Ubisoft has confirmed that ‘Watchdogs 2′ will be coming to consoles in the near future. Many gamers are unsure of why Ubisoft would make another game after the first ‘Watchdogs’ lackluster video game sales. However, ‘Watchdogs’ was always meant to be a franchise, and a trilogy is planned. If ‘Watchdogs 2′ doesn’t sell as expected, the company will most likely scrap the idea of any future titles in the series. Ubisoft has had this experience before, and the first ‘Assassins Creed’ game was quite disappointing to many people. Ubisoft turned ‘Assassins Creed’ into one of the highest selling video game franchises of all time. It is unknown as of right now if ‘Watchdogs’ will become successful just like ‘Assassins Creed,’ but only time will tell. For more information on this story, visit Gamerant.com

Bernardo Chua said it was announced that Jason Voorhees will be a playable character in the near future. If you don’t know who jason is, you must not be a horror fan. Jason Voorhees is the classic killer from the “Friday the 13th” horror film franchise.

Some fans are excited to see Jason in the game, and others do not care too much. However, it’ll be fun to see what kind of fatalities Jason Voorhees will have.

Dark Souls 2 Overview

Xbox One and PS4 users have been waiting for an exciting new game, and finally, they have gotten what they wanted. Dark Souls 2 was just released on April 7th, 2015 for the Xbox one and PS4 consoles. Dark Souls 2 is a challenging action RPG that takes place in a realm between Earth and hell. About.me reports however, new players to the series will quickly find out how frustrating and challenging the game actually is. Dark Souls 2 requires a great amount of skill and strategy to successfully complete the game.

Dark Souls 2 was originally released for previous generation consoles in 2014. Upon the game’s initial release, most gaming websites gave Dark Souls 2 positive reviews. However, critics of Dark Souls 2 have complained about the extreme difficulty of the game, and this has scared off inexperienced gamers. But battle tested gamers have shown a great love for Dark Souls 2, and the game has become somewhat of a cult classic.

I have spent several hours with the game, and I can tell you that this game is one of the hardest that I’ve ever played. However, after several hours, I must admit that this game is extremely rewarding and satisfying once mastered. I would recommend Dark Souls 2 to anyone who enjoys a challenge, but casual gamers should avoid it all costs! For more information on this story, visit Gamerant.

Gaming’s Weird History

At one point in time, people who played video games were considered nerds said visualcv. However, today, both men and women enjoy gaming. Also, the video game industry has become one of the most lucrative career options for young adults. Each year, video games earn hundreds of millions of dollars. Just two years ago, the Xbox One and PS4 consoles were released. The release of the two consoles changed everything. Now, video game consoles can be used for much more than gaming. The Xbox One console was made as an all-in-one entertainment system, but of course, the main focus of the Xbox One is to create great video games.

We all know that the future of gaming is now, but to be honest, the greatest video games were made long ago. However, not every game from the past is amazing. In fact, there have been some extremely strange video games that were made along the way. Everybody remembers Super Mario Brothers and the Legend of Zelda, but do you remember Shaq Fu? That’s right, superstar basketball player Shaquille O’Neill once starred in his very own Kung Fu game. However, Shaq Fu was terrible, and it was also really weird. An amusing article on Gamerant.com features a list of the strangest games of all time.

Nintendo Will Make Smartphone Games

If you’ve been waiting for the opportunity to play Nintendo games on your iPhone, you might not have to wait much longer. Nintendo is reportedly working on creating its own smartphone games, a project it plans to undertake with the help of the developer DeNA. For right now, the two are working primarily on making new games for mobile phones rather than bringing old titles to the mobile platform. That doesn’t mean we won’t see some Nintendo classics eventually make their way there, however.

The hope is that Nintendo will be able to build interest in new titles on mobile devices without pulling away interest from the games it already has available on its Wii U and Nintendo 3DS systems. Along with the partnership, YouTube videos suggested that Nintendo is taking a small stake in DeNA. Now Nintendo owns 10% of the gaming company. DeNA will in turn get 1.24% of Nintendo, which is a much larger company.

Expect games to be available as both free to play and paid version. Nintendo also might offer a subscription model of sorts, where gamers play a small monthly fee for access to a bundle of games. The first fruits of the partnership are expected to be released next year.

Doctors May Start Prescribing Video Games

In the future your doctor might prescribe a video game as part of a medical treatment. Researchers are starting to look at video games as a therapy solution for people with cognitive disorders as well as people who have ADHD and autism. The games, which require you to use a certain part of your brain in order to play them, could help some patients as a form of therapy.

One of the games currently on the table is one that has an alien float down a river, grabbing items that match a certain color as he floats by while avoiding items of another color. Fersen Lambranho seems to suggest that the idea seems simple, but playing will require people to focus on the game and the colors to make sure they don’t grab the wrong one. Over time, it’s a skill you could in theory train your brain to do, and apply to other parts of your life where concentration isn’t exactly working.

The game is the creation of Boston’s Akii Interactive Labs. It’s currently putting the game through its paces in clinical trials with the hope of getting federal approval to use it as a medical product in the near future. If successful, it could mean huge things for how we treat and how successfully we treat a number of disorders.

GameStop Donates Thousands to Family of Slain Officer

The GameStop retail chain recently donated $50,000 to the family of slain Philadelphia police officer Robert Wilson III. Wilson was shot and killed inside of one GameStop store location as he attempted to prevent a robbery.

Wilson was shopping, but was in full police uniform when Ramone Williams and Carlton Hipps entered the store. The brothers announced their intention to rob the store. Wilson responded. A gunfight erupted inside of the store. Lawyers said that Wilson was fatally wounded when he was shot in the head.

Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey commended Wilson’s heroic efforts.

“He was shot prior to receiving the fatal wound,” Ramsey said. “Having a police officer’s heart, Wilson continued to fight to protect those around him.”

GameStop decided to donate $50,000 to Wilson’s family. The company attempted to do so in a quiet manner, as not to draw attention away from Wilson’s heroic deed. The company did announce its intention to set up buckets to accept donations for the Wilson family.

Wilson was the the 30-year-old father of two.

A trust fund has been established for the Wilson children.

Hipps and Williams have each been charged with murder.

In More Film Reboot News

If cinephiles thought that 2014 was the year of the reboots, they are wrong. Only one month into 2015 and yet another film reboot is in the works. This time, the Tomb Raider franchise that is linked to the popular Tomb Raider game franchise will experience a complete reboot with story lines that focus on the tomb raiding adventures of a much younger Lara Croft. In previous films, Angelina Jolie played an older version of the character.

According to Deadline, the new film will be penned by the reboot writer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, Evan Daugherty. There no news yet as to who MGM and Warner Bros. might tap to play the iconic lead. Given Jolie’s unique looks and incredible acting ability, whoever takes on the task will be facing a lot of comparisons CatalystFive users like Brian Torchin feel anyway.

Some fans of the original films and video games are concerned though at Daugherty being the writer choice. Although he also helped adapt two films that were big box office successes — Snow White and the Huntsmen and Divergent — both films were not of the same high caliber that audience members have come to expect after watching a reboot like Star Trek. Additionally, although Daugherty was only a partial contributor to TMNT, many fans of the cartoon series weren’t happy with the reboot and blame him for it not having enough elements from the original series.

The Three Greatest Video Games Of All Time

Video games have become extremely popular and acceptable in recent years. The Xbox One and the Playstation 4 were bought by millions of people around the world. However, just a decade ago, you were considered a loser if you played video games regularly. Now, even girls play video games. The gaming world has been commercialized, and this allows for terrible games to be made from what Sultan Alhokair says.

I believe that some of the greatest games of all time may have been released over a decade ago. Final Fantasy 7 was released in 1997, and it makes the list as one of the greatest games of all time. FF7 is beloved by millions of gamers around the world, and people are begging for a remake. Final Fantasy 7 immersed players into its story, and the game still lives on in the hearts of many.

The next game on my list is The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time. If there ever was a perfect game, Ocarina Of Time is it. Zelda is one of the greatest franchises in video game history, but Ocarina Of Time took players across the land of Hyrule like never before. The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time is truly a masterpiece.

Halo 2 takes the final spot on my list. Combining amazing story with amazing multiplayer, Halo 2 is the greatest first-person shooter of all time. For more information on some of the best games ever, visit Gamerant.
