For those of you that don’t know, ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ was recently released on the Xbox one, PS4 and PC. However, the PC version of the game has had trouble since day one, and it seems that the PC game does not work at all.
According to Dr. Jennifer Walden, Warner Brothers recently announced that ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ on the PC has been removed from store shelves. Gamers around the world were stunned when they heard the news. PC gamers have long bragged about the technical strength of home computers, but it seems that console gamers are enjoying ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ without issue.. When was the last time that a game developer offered a refund for a game? Warner Brothers will lose a lot of money because of the failure of ‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ on the PC. At least the company is doing the right thing by giving a refund to gamers who purchased the PC version of ‘Batman: Arkham Knight.’ It seems that gamers of the “Master Race” are no longer bragging about their high end PC’s.
‘Batman Arkham Knight’ was recently released for the Xbox one, PS4, and PC. The game was met with favorable reviews, and people around the world are calling the new Batman game a masterpiece. IGN and Gamerant gave the game a 9.3, but there are several people around the world who are very disappointed with ‘Batman Arkham Knight.’
Several users on Reddit are complaining about issues that ‘Batman Arkham Knight’ is currently experiencing. Apparently, ‘Batman Arkham Knight’ does not work on the PC, and several updates have yet to fix the problem. Also, the team at the aspire new brunswick have pointed out that gamers are complaining about the expensive cost of DLC for the game, and many reddit users are beginning to appreciate ‘The Witcher 3’ even more.
Unfortunately, ‘Batman Arkham Knight’ charges gamers for every little piece of downloadable content. Aside from the expensive purchases of ‘Batman Arkham Knight,’ several people are complaining that ‘Batman’ is a much smaller game than ‘The Witcher 3.’ However, that is to be expected, but ‘Batman’ was advertised as being an incredibly huge sandbox game. Nonetheless, it’s quite obvious that ‘The Witcher 3’ is a bigger and better video game than ‘Batman Arkham Knight.’
When movies experience financial success, the sequels can churn a long pretty fast. When the main characters are computer animated, the sequel can present some interesting challenges. The challenges keep mounting when the sequel is based on a movie that performed well at the box office but received less than stellar reviews from fans and critics alike. Of course, it helps when the film is based on a bunch of likeable turtles with serious martial arts skills.
According to Screen Rant, production on “TMNT 2” is moving along quite well despite the real stars of the film not making an appearance until conjured up by the special effects team in post-production. One of the biggest positives being associated with the new film is the appearance of Casey Jones, who will be played by Stephen Amnell from “Arrow.” Plus the second outing of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will feature the live action film debuts of former television cartoon staples Bebop and Rocksteady.
Zeca Oliveira, avid fan, has expectations that are always hard to gauge, and the story of the sequel is ultimately what will drive the films popularity. The turtles are a hot commodity these days, and social media leaks and behind the scenes video shots are being used by the marketing team to stoke those fires.
Keith Mann says that though not as attention grabbing as unknowns, though certainly not expected by the crowd, video game developer IO Interactive, whose claim to fame is the long series of Hitman games, revealed a new title at E3 during the Square Enix press conference.
The previous installment, Hitman: Absolution, followed veteran spy/assassin Agent 47, an ice-eyed, alabaster-skinned, body-hair-free, bio-engineered clone designed for the killing of enemies of various nations, militaries, intelligence bodies, corporations and wealthy clients. While that title explored 47’s divorcing from the International Contract Agency–a play on the American Central Intelligence Agency–and his eventual disappearance into obscurity, this new installment, simply titled Hitman, seems to show a younger 47, still in the employ of the ICA and in connection with Diana Burnwood, his agency case manager and sole friend whom he helped escape the ICA in Absolution. So with a reboot in the works, where is IO taking Agent 47 next?
As reported by Engadget, Hitman will be a departure of the traditional mission structure of previous games. Previously players would be given a target, mission specifications, and locked into a hub, a closed-off area where they would be allowed to execute their target as they see fit. It seems the “sandbox” approach will remain, but developers are claiming that this title will be an ever-expanding world. IO will achieve this by episodic installments with new targets, locations, challenges and other additions to the game over a period of time.
December 8, 2015, is IO’s target date for Hitman’s release.
The video game industry has become a billion dollar revenue source, and it seems that YouTube wants in on the money. For several years, Twitch was the lead streaming site for video games, and Twitch still is. However, it seems that YouTube is planning on taking over the game streaming market.
Last year, Amazon purchased twitch for $970 million dollars, and apparently Amazon is extremely happy about their business endeavor. Twitch is used by over a hundred million people, and the company’s numbers continue to rise. However, YouTube plans on streaming over 25,000 games at once, and that is truly a tall feet.
Bruce Levenson recently mentioned that the video game market has never been so lucrative, and every major company is joining in. Nonetheless, I feel that Twitch will most likely continue to rule the video streaming world. However, YouTube is a billion dollar company, and I’m sure that they have a few tricks up their sleeves in fact, YouTube has already announced that they will focus more on video games than any other category. This means that people searching for a specific video game will find it quicker than someone searching for a specific song. Gamerant recently published an article with much more information about this story.
Norman Reedus is well known for his role in ‘The Walking Dead,’ but television fans should get ready to see Norman Reedus in the video game world. Gamerant has recently revealed that ‘Silent Hills’ will in fact be made. For those of you that don’t know, ‘Silent Hills’ was scheduled to release exclusively for the PS4, but a ton of controversial incidents took place in the development team of Konami. Many employees were fired from the game company, and ‘Silent Hills’ was supposedly scrapped from production.
After several disputes at Konami, the game was canceled, but fans started a petition to ensure that the game was made. Thankfully, it appears that the Xbox one will have exclusive rights to the ‘Silent Hills’ video game.
PlayStation 4 users at Boraie Development told njbiz.com they are very upset with the news, and it’s understandable. ‘Silent Hills’ looked absolutely incredible, and it was supposedly going to be a PlayStation 4 exclusive. However, Microsoft decided to purchase the project for an incredible amount of money. There are rumors that ‘Silent Hills’ cost Microsoft a billion dollars, but that seems a bit unrealistic to me. Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to playing ‘Silent Hills’ on the Xbox one console.
Batman: Arkham Knight brings the current Caped Crusader video game trilogy to a close. Yes, there will surely be more original Batman video games produced for the gaming market in the coming years. Financial advisors say the games are all going to have to climb a very high mountain to meet the quality of the Arkham trilogy, though.
Among the most interesting aspects of the Arkham trilogy would be the characters. With Arkhan Knight, the villain Harley Quinn is front and center. She is one of the more intriguing Batman villains of the modern era and is poised for mainstream breakout stardom thanks to the upcoming Suicide Squad film.
Batman has had his share of popular female villains in the past. Catwoman and Poison Ivy are the two most popular. What makes Harley Quinn so different is, unlike the other two, Quinn has no affection for Batman. Instead, she is obsessed with The Joker. Unlike Batman, The Joker returns the affection, albeit in The Joker’s own perversely demented way.
Harley Quinn’s popularity is rooted in her being a very brilliantly crafted villain. Sure, she is basically a girl Joker so you cannot call her original. To say she is just a spin on Batgirl would be trite though. Harley Quinn is much more fleshed out of a character and her appeal is very strong among fans.
In Batman: Arkham Knight, you can actually play the character of Harley Quinn. Based on reports so far, the game should set sales records. Maybe we will see a Harley Quinn (and Joker) solo video game in the future.
As most PS4 users know, games on the popular platform tend to take up a considerable amount of space. PS4 games come on Blu-ray discs with 50gb capacities and downloadable content often adds another 5-10gb of game data from the start. While a user could easily crack open a PS4 and replace the hard drive themselves some users don’t want to risk damaging their expensive console and would rather just purchase a higher capacity console from the start. The unfortunate news is the PS4 currently only comes with a 500gb option, at least for now.
Recent FCC filings show a model CUH-1215B which is different from the currently on-sale CUH-1215A model. Further investigation shows that this model does indeed include a 1TB hard drive.
While this is currently just a prototype model the fact that it is in the process of FCC certification is a good sign. Sam Tabar knows that generally this is one of the last steps in releasing a product to the general public.
‘Grand Theft Auto 5’ is one of the greatest games of all time. ‘GTA 5’ has sold more than 52-million copies, and that number continues to grow with each passing day. ‘Grand Theft Auto’ completely pushed the boundaries of gaming possibilities last year.
The ‘Rockstar’ game development team continues to show an unparalleled level of quality and content according to Alexei Beltyukov. A few months ago, ‘Grand Theft Auto 5’ featured new multiplayer content, and everyone was extremely excited about the additional content added to the game. Players were given several new heist missions, which allowed players to make millions of dollars for one mission. However, players have already finished the new downloadable content, and gamers are beginning to crave more. Luckily, ‘Rockstar’ Games has announced that new story DLC will be available in the near future.
Many people are wondering if the main characters of the game will be featured in the new DLC, but some reports have indicated otherwise. Apparently, there are a few new characters that could possibly make their way into the ‘GTA’ world. However, these rumors have not yet been confirmed, and new pictures of Michael holding a machine gun have been released on GameRant..
‘Destiny’ is one of the most popular games for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox one consoles. Many people play ‘Destiny’ to find new weapons and armor. However, over the last several months, destiny hasn’t had any new content added to it. The gameplay and experience has quickly turned into an unbearable venture. For some reason though, gamers are still flocking to ‘Destiny,’ and it was recently reported that over 20 million people play the game.
Gaming websites once stated that ‘Destiny’ would quickly dwindle in terms of popularity. It appears that so-called experts have no idea what they’re talking about. On May 6, 2015, Bungie showed the world exclusive gameplay of the new ‘House of Wolves’ DLC. Millions of gamers were extremely impressed and excited when they saw some much-needed additions to the game.
The developers of ‘Destiny’ realize that gamers have been playing the same stages over and over for the last year. Bungie promises to deliver an extremely versatile and new experience when the ‘House of Wolves’ DLC is released. New weapons, armor, and stages will be coming soon.
Thanks for gaming with me Jaime Garcia Dias. I know you’ve got a lot to do, being the businessman that you are, so thanks for giving me some time.
