  • Summary
    NBA Live 15 is an improvement from the previous year. It contains better graphics, smoother gameplay and feels like a more complete experience when compared to NBA Live 14. That said, there is still some work to be done if it hopes to compete with the NBA 2K series. It isn’t quite to the 2K level, but it’s now officially on the right path.

  • Dying Light release formats announcement

    Check out the details below.

    Warsaw, Poland... Techland today announced that Dying Light, the first-person zombie action survival game, will be released for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, while development on the previously-announced Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions has now ceased. The reason for Techland's revised publishing plan has been explained in an open letter to fans:

    Dear Gamers,

    As you probably know, we're wrapping up the development of Dying Light, our biggest and most ambitious project to date. We spent the last three years making sure that all the features of our game add up to create a truly next-gen experience.

    Much of this "next-gen feel" is tightly connected to the technological side of Dying Light. For instance, up to 200,000 objects can be displayed in the game at once. Add to this our use of realistic, physics-based lighting technology and you really start to push the next-gen systems to the limits. Features like these along with our core gameplay pillars – such as the player-empowering Natural Movement, threefold character development system, and vast open world – are all an inherent part of how Dying Light plays. However, combining all of these into one fluid experience is only possible on technologically advanced platforms.

    Therefore, after thorough internal testing, we have come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to leave past-gen systems behind and release Dying Light exclusively on the next-gen consoles and PC. Put simply, older consoles just couldn't run the game and stay true to the core vision of Dying Light at the same time.

    To ensure you enjoy Dying Light as much as we would like you to, we chose to release it without any compromises on the three strongest systems available. Thanks to this, you'll get the full and best experience regardless of the platform you play on.

    We hope you understand the hard choice we've had to make. With the launch just around the corner, we can't wait to show you Dying Light in the state it was meant to be. We're looking forward to your reactions and impressions as we release the game in January 2015.

    Release Date:

    Dying Light for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC will be released in 2015 on January 27th in the Americas, January 28th in Australia and New Zealand, and January 30th in Europe and Asia.

  • A Belle for Christmas
    If you can get past the sub-par acting and somewhat shallow characters, A Belle for Christmas is an entertaining holiday film for the whole family. For a Direct-to-DVD film, it is charming and delightful, and though it may not be that memorable, it’s sure to keep children occupied during holiday road trips.

  • Call of Duty gamers join 'Race to 1,000 Jobs' to help veterans

    Love this about Activision. Check out the details below.

    SANTA MONICA, CA (October 29, 2014) -- During the two week period leading up to Veterans Day, Call of Duty® gamers can do their part to help 1,000 military veterans find high-quality jobs by joining the "Race to 1,000 Jobs" fundraising and awareness campaign (#1000Vets) in support of the Call of Duty Endowment.  Call of Duty Endowment is a non-profit organization that uses a venture philanthropy approach to fund and grow best-in-class organizations that place veterans in meaningful careers.
     
    The "Race to 1,000 Jobs" features three ways for gamers to get involved:
    - Kicking off this campaign, five gamer personalities - Ernest Le, Goldglove, Goldenboy, iiJERiiCHOii, TmarTn - will launch their own fundraising effort as part of the 2014 Race to Prestige (#TheRace), powered by Twitch. During the launch week of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (Sunday, November 2 through Friday, November 7), the gamers will stream themselves on Twitch playing Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare at www.twitch.tv/therace while taking donations for the Call of Duty Endowment.  
    - Beginning Tuesday, November 4, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition Dog Tags will go on sale at more than 11,000 participating retail locations across the United States, including GameStop, 7-Eleven, Walmart, Target, Best Buy and Toys "R" Us stores. Additionally, the Dog Tags will be available as part of a special Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare bundle at Costco stores. All profits from the sale of the Dog Tags will be donated to the Call of Duty Endowment.
    - Starting today, gamers can create their own fundraising pages to raise money for the Call of Duty Endowment by going to www.callofduty.com/vets. Between now and Veterans Day, November 11th, participating players will be eligible to win a variety of amazing prizes, including a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition Xbox One or Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Atlas Limited Edition game signed by Sledgehammer Games, by asking family, friends, and Twitch viewers to sponsor them in a gameathon that will take place on Veterans Day.  On Veterans Day, these gamers can then join together to play any Call of Duty title as they game for good. Gamers that raise $100 in sponsorship will get a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for Xbox (while supplies last) and the top fundraiser (must be over $5,000) will win a trip to Sledgehammer Games in San Francisco to meet the creators of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.   
    In addition to donating all profits from the sales of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition Dog Tags, Activision Publishing will match all donations made to the Call of Duty Endowment dollar-for-dollar, up to $1 million, during the "Race to 1,000 Jobs."
     
    "We are incredibly excited to offer Call of Duty gamers three ways to support connecting veterans with the high-quality career opportunities they need and deserve," said Dan Goldenberg, Executive Director of the Call of Duty Endowment. "The 'Race to 1,000 Jobs' is a terrific opportunity for Call of Duty gamers to have a lot of fun while helping put vets to work in great jobs."
     
    "Twitch is proud to team up with Activision and the Call of Duty Endowment to advance this mission to help 1,000 veterans start new careers," said Justin Wong, VP of Partnerships at Twitch. "This campaign is an example of what the gaming community can do to channel its incredible energy for an important cause."
     
    Working with Deloitte, the Call of Duty Endowment carefully evaluates and then funds organizations working to prepare veterans for the job market and place them in careers that take full advantage of their skills, experience and training. Recipients of the Call of Duty Endowment's Seal of Distinction must demonstrate effective and cost-efficient veteran job placement before receiving funding to encourage their growth and operations.

However, while escaping he wants to tie up a few loose ends… Across three new challenge maps, ‘Severance’, ‘Scorched Earth’ and ‘Loose Ends’, players are challenged to compete against others through Alien: Isolation’s online leaderboards, to escape the station in the fastest possible time or attain the top score through numerous side quests and hidden bonus objectives. New to ‘Corporate Lockdown’ is the addition of Gauntlet Mode where players are challenged to top the Gauntlet Mode leaderboards by completing all three challenge maps back-to-back without dying.

    ‘Corporate Lockdown’ will be available to download via online marketplaces for available platforms today, priced at MSRP $7.99/€6.99/£5.59 and will be followed by four more packs: ‘Trauma’, ‘Safe Haven’, ‘Lost Contact’ and ‘The Trigger’.

Players wishing to explore every inch of Sevastopol Station can take advantage of the Alien: Isolation Season Pass, offering access to all five Survivor Mode add-on packs at up to a 25% discount. All add-on packs are scheduled to be released by March 2015.

    Alien: Isolation is a first-person survival horror game set on board a decommissioned trading station in the fringes of space. Players find themselves in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger as an unpredictable, ruthless Xenomorph is stalking and killing deep in the shadows. Underpowered and underprepared, you must scavenge resources, improvise solutions and use your wits, not just to succeed in your mission, but to simply stay alive.

    Alien: Isolation is available now for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Windows PC, Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
