Battlefield is a series of video games that are published by EA and developed by DICE and Visceral Games (separately from each other). The games focus mainly on large scale war between various factions across the world, some real,.. others not. Players get to use many weapons to achieve one goal, utter maybe and wanton murder of everyone not on their current team. Which in my humble opinion is awesome. There are many competitors e.g. Call of Duty, Red Orchestra, Frontlines, Brothers in arms etc and some of them like the COD series have achieved a high player sales count and a high release count just like battlefield, reminding some of us of the ever present madden football games or the NHL games. New year, new COD/BF with the same ol’ same ol’ feel.

To break the monotony EA released Battlefield Hardline. Which prompted a loud “Why?” from many fans. Since EA didnt know the answer either they chose to shrug their shoulders, and go back to WW I / II genre of game based large battles, and now we have a reboot (?) of the series as Battlefield 1, with many fans rejoicing. An ever popular concept with the movie industry, video game companies have decided to get in on the action also, with Call of duty putting out Modern Warfare Remastered and now EA putting out Battlefield 1. The game is set in real world, and no alternate histories or nazis on the moon are involved.

As pointed out by the timer under the video, the release date is October 21 across the board for PS4, PC, and Xbox One. The guy on the cover with a cape is a Harlem Hellfighter. Guess he hadn’t seen the PSA about  NO CAPES!…..  The Harlem Hellfighters aka the Black Rattlers aka the Men of Bronze were the 369th Infantry Regiment, made up mostly of Black and Puerto Rican enlistees. They never lost a man to capture, a foot of land or a trench to the enemy and were the longest serving American unit in the war.

We are all awaiting more info but so far it seems, there will indeed be a single player mode. Whats in it or how expansive will it be? its anyones guess at this point, considering how … lacking the single player was compred to the multiplayer for the last couple of installments of Battlefield (once again ignoring hardline since… seriously EA what the hell was that? did you have a game kicking around the warehouse and decided to re-brand it as a BF title?.. o was that it? well that does explain a few things.).  PS YES! there are horses in this game that you can ride! I’m gonna trample me some tank riders!

I loved mount & Blade series, it was pretty awesome to recruit people from villages, train and attack large towns and castles with them. so I was excited to hear the new iteration of the series Mount & blade 2 bannerlord is on its way! Check out the Mount & Blade 2 Bannerlord trailer above.

On one hand im excited that the graphics got an overhaul, but man those battles could get real large….

Mount & Blade Large battle
Mount & Blade Large battle

Well what happens when you have 1000 or 1500 chars on single battlefield. Cant wait for the burning smell of my GFX card then 🙂 So what has Taleworld done in the past 5 years since the last copy of M&B? well they have designed, written & implemented a whole new game engine! Im hoping it is a fully moddable engine like their old one which really allowed modders a lot of freedom. Another cool additive is the replay system which allows us to replay old battles from various angles and points allowing for cinematic excellence, hopefully this will bring lots of awesome cuts of M&B battles to youtube in the near future.

They have added a whole new bartering system to the game. Some of you might be thinking, hmm did they clone the witcher series? well maybe, but the thing is I love the witcher series and they are my all time top fav games of their genre but they don’t own the bartering system in games, it has been there for a long time in many games.

mount & blade bannerlord barter

here’s a developer preview of how they designed parts of the game and why they designed it that way. such as the way they optimize the terrain to maximize view distance.

Info gleaned from various sources including by not limited to Taleworlds blog.

Some Nvidia Shield tablets recalled due to battery fire hazard

NVIDIA shield tablets are going through a downward spiral at the moment since some of them are being recalled due to a possible fire hazard. Some portable consoles seem to be vulnerable to overheating batteries. The news broke on Friday and it came from the producer itself.

 

Nvidia Shield tablet

 

 

Nvidia asked its customers to stop using defectuous Shield tablets immediately in order for them to qualify for a recall and possible replacement. The recall is meant for 8-inch Shield tablets which were sold between July 2014 and July 2015.

 

Customers can check if their devices need to be recalled on Nvidia’s official website where they can find out if their devices have the problematic type of battery. If your tablet needs to be recalled, you can file a claim through the website and Nvidia will replace your device free of charge.

How can you find out if your Nvidia tablet is susceptible to over-heating?

 

You can check for your device’s serial number; look for model numbers “P1761”, “P1761W”, and “P1761WX” and check if your serial number ranges from 0410215901781 to 0425214604018. If you have these numbers on your device, you should get in touch with the manufacturers.

 

The Nvidia Shield tablet is mainly destined for gamers, it has a price tag of $299 and it can cost more depending on the storage space you want.

YouTube Gaming is coming! Google to launch its own live streaming gaming service

YouTube Gaming is taking on Twitch! The newest Google project was announced rather cutely on Twitter yesterday and it appears that the Game is on! Google almost bought Twitch last year, but Amazon was better and faster – and probably made a better offer – so they snatched it for themselves. Now the rainbow multinational has decided to step up their game and get in on the ever-growing gaming market and its linked online gaming streaming hype with its own streaming service.

 

Youtube streaming

 

 

Enter YouTube Streaming, a service using the YouTube name that will have its own website and app to go with it as soon as this fall. It will have dedicated pages for over 25,000 games at launch and support for 60fps streaming along with improved latency and the promise of never having to schedule broadcasts. Streams will be turned into YouTube videos for good measure. This means that old videos should remain viewable long after they were made, unlike the Past Broadcast service Twitch is offering where users can opt out of recording their streams for posthumous viewing in archives and where they don’t stay longer than 60 days.

 

The on-point response Twitch gave to Youtube Gaming's coming out tweet.

The Google service will launch in the UK and US first and it should extend globally after that. There is no exact launch date at the moment; therefore it could happen any day now in the next couple of months. Until then, you can try all the little triangles shaping up the heart logo from the official page, if you want to relive the nostalgia of hearing old game jingles, that is.

Amazon buys Twitch for $1 billion!

Amazon is buying Twitch for $1 billion dollars or the commercial equivalent of one Instagram! The announcement was confirmed by Android Police, The Wall Street Journal and Amazon.com itself in the past few hours!

A few weeks after the rumor that Google is the one who acquired Twitch hit the news; reality hits the eager public with a shock. It is still unclear why Amazon is taking a shot with such a popular streaming site as Twitch because the multimedia e-mogul is not active in the social media niche and does not associate itself too much with gaming. Amazon is more known for being one of the best merchandise e-service around selling from video games, books, cat food, electronics to power tools and clothing.

Amazon officially announced that it has reached an agreement with Twitch Interactive Inc. in relation to its acquisition. Considering the fact that streaming, broadcasting and watching gameplay has become rather popular in the past few months, Twitch became a leader on the niche market and it brings millions of people together in various channels where they can watch the gameplays they love so much and the gaming conferences they cannot attend to in person.

Twitch launched in 2011 and focuses on live video streaming for gamers. Amazon is said to acquire Twitch’s shares for $970 million in cash and the agreement is expected to close sometime in the third quarter of 2014.
