Football is a beautiful game played across the entire planet, even known to some as Soccer, but that’s another story in itself. The sport’s most recognized video game for a number of years has been FIFA, a game offering all sorts of different ways to play the sport, and without doubt my favourite console game of all time.
EA Sports’ newest title, FIFA 16, has been met with a pretty mixed response ever since the release of the demo. Some gamers would suggest that the game offers an alternative to the usual pace-orientated gameplay, I am one of those people. Although, it could also be argued that the game feels a bit scrappy and even disjointed to play at times, a fairly accurate criticism it must be said.
This year’s game has developed many of its previous game modes, building new features into career mode and the likes, but the introduction of FIFA Ultimate Team Draft is the REAL exciting feature this year. But aside from the draft many fans will have been expecting other specific changes, but did they get their wish? Let’s find out…
Details on Atlus’ long awaited Persona 5 have been scarce to say the least in recent months, but we might not have to wait much longer. Persona 5’s official website has posted a running countdown clock that will expire in just a couple of weeks on May 5th.
We know that Atlus’s official stance is that the game is coming out sometime this summer, so it’s possible that the reveal might just be a release date. *fingers crossed*
Originally, Persona 5 was supposed to land in 2015, but was delayed at TGS 2015. There have been a few details that have trickled out in regards to dungeon changes and and storyline, but suffice it to say, we could use a new kickass trailer and official release date to get this hype train rolling.

Supergiant Games, creators of Bastion and Transistor, have just revealed the first trailer for their upcoming role playing game, Pyre. Check it out above!
Pyre places you deep in purgatory as you lead a band of exiles through a series of combat trials, known as the Rites, through which the worthiest competitors will be granted safe passage back home. Supergiant Games Creative Director, Greg Kasavin, had this to say:
“Pyre once again showcases our small team’s commitment to rich atmospheric presentation and storytelling, along with a distinctive gameplay blend that combines expressive decision making on the world map with fast, action-packed confrontations against rival groups of exiles whose own freedom is at stake. We want to create a large cast of characters you can grow close to as you travel together across a strange and wondrous land.”
The game will be available to demo at booth #8212 during PAX East in Boston, which runs this weekend from April 22-24.
Pyre releases exclusively on Playstation 4 in 2017!
YouTuber and speedrunner “darbian” recently set a new world record for the original Super Mario Bros.—by beating his own record.
Previously, darbian completed the game in just 4:57:647. In his latest and greatest attempt, he shaved 387 milliseconds off his time, which clocked in at 4:57:260. The deciding moment comes in around 3:31 in the video above, when he manages to save a jump on a warp pipe.
Notably, darbian’s record is for any percentage (or “any%”) speedruns of Super Mario Bros., which only require defeating Bowser and do allow warping between levels, hence darbian’s jump to level eight.
Darbian says he’s finished with Super Mario Bros. for now. “I have reached my potential in this category,” he said of his accomplishment. “I’m done! My quest is over.” Fortunately, there are plenty of other games for him to speedrun, many of which he’s already attempted, including The Magical Quest Starring Mickey Mouse, World of Illusion and Wally Bear and the NO! Gang.
Red Dead Redemption has been a fan favorite ever since it launched back in 2010 and since then, fans have been hoping & praying for a sequel. However, with all the recent rumors, no one could tell if it will become official or not, until now that is.
Earlier today, the reported Red Dead Redemption 2 map was leaked online. It was first spotted on NeoGaf by user Mideon that claims he received it from a source he will not mention. Soon after, the image was taken down, but by then it was too late and the image was scattered across the internet.
TechRadar followed up on the rumored map by stating that the “map is indeed the real deal” from a source close to the development of the new Red Dead game.
Take a look at the screenshot down below:
TechRadar’s source not only confirms that this is a very recent, and a real copy of the map, but also confirms that instead of a proper sequel, the game will be a prequel. The lack of railroad tracks matches the claim of a prequel title.
However, despite the missing railroads, it looks like a new gameplay feature will include boat travel. As you can see in the picture above, the right side is filled with little islands which will presumably be able to explore either by boat or swimming. The game is “supposedly” taking place a little more East than the original game, as you can see from the image down below, there is a lot of similarities between the two maps.
There has yet to be any official word from Rockstar on the rumored Red Dead Redemption 2, but if the rumors are to be true then we will be seeing the announcement at E3 2016. But we have are reasons on why all these RDR rumors are most likely fake, click here to read more on that.
Let us know in the comments below if you like the idea of a prequel Red Dead Redemption instead of a sequel!
When Bungie takes Destiny's servers down tomorrow the game will be coming back with a ton of new challenges, rewards, and content – some of which will be exclusive to PlayStation users.

Earlier today we got an unofficial look at DOOM's single-player, a mode of the game that hasn't been detailed by Bethesda or id Software. Luckily, the developers at id Software are running a livestream to inform gamers on DOOM's campaign mode.
The livestream shows off a bit of the campaign, along with a couple of tidbits on the game's development and features.
According to the devs on the livestream, in addition to Easy mode, Nightmare mode and every other mode. There's the "Ultra Nightmare" mode that takes nightmare and forces you to play it without dying. If you die at any point in an Ultra Nightmare playthrough, you start that the beginning of the game.
Check out the gameplay, the weapons, and whatever else id Software decides to reveal in the stream below:

Ahead of the upcoming release of the third and final Zero Escape, the second game in the series, Virtue’s Last Reward, can be picked up on the cheap via the Nintendo eShop.
Ordinarily $24.99, VLR is currently available for $11.99 for 3DS. However, as many 3DS users learned in the past, the 3DS version of the game comes with a massive disclaimer: it has a game-breaking bug.
More accurately, it has a game-deleting bug. Saving in one of the game’s many puzzle rooms has a high chance of deleting or corrupting your save file, resulting in the permanent loss of all progress. The bug is not apparent in the Vita version of the game, yet it was never patched, though it can be avoided with careful saving. So, channel those Resident Evil typewriter skills.
Now is an especially good time to dive into the Zero Escape games, as the series will become a real-world escape challenge later this month with the launch of Real Zero Escape: Trust on Trial, a locked-room puzzle event hosted in Los Angeles. Organized by Japanese event studio SCRAP, Trust on Trial begins April 15.

Sony recently announced the merger of Sony Computer Entertainment and Sony Network Entertainment, which now comprise the umbrella company Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE). The company will serve as headquarters for the PlayStation brand moving forward, but according to SIE President Shawn Layden, will not impact PlayStation platforms anytime terribly soon.
“So what does this mean for you, the gamer?” Layden said on the PlayStation Blog. “If I’m honest, probably not a whole lot—at least not in the short term. But in the long run, it will mean everything.
“The formation of SIE will allow us to forge a unified PlayStation organization that can adapt more quickly to meet the ends of the gaming community, innovate with digital services like PlayStation Vue and PlayStation Now, and—above all else—drive consistent and constant innovation in the dynamic medium of video games.”
In other words, the merger was intended to improve the relationship and, likely, the communication between Sony’s gaming and entertainment divisions—the implications of which will only become noticeable as future projects ramp up.
Layden himself has also changed hats, or rather, gained another. He is now chairman of Worldwide Studios, PlayStation’s first-party studio which oversees such projects as Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Horizon Zero Dawn.

After months, maybe even years, of back-and-forth speculation it has finally been confirmed that Zombieland 2 is in development.
This news was confirmed at CinemaCon where the brand new logo was revealed for the long-awaited Zombieland sequel, as reported by ComicBook.com.
For those that are not aware, simply, Zombieland is based on a world whereby a zombie virus is spreading and survivors need to stick together. In the original film, released back in 2009, the likes of Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone, Woody Harrelson and Abigail Breslin there was a lot of action, a lot of shooting and even some comedy.
Zombieland was a critically-acclaimed success story and many fans will be hoping that the same quality will be echoed in the sequel.
There has been no official announcement as to who will be involved in Zombieland 2 as of yet, but in the meantime, fans have a pretty simple logo to keep them hyped.
