PS3 Game

  • Beautiful New RPG Child of Light’s Release Date


    This is one of those RPGs that I am excited for, and if you are a fan of RPGs and beautiful storytelling, you should be too. The game is called Child of Light and has been developed by a small studio within Ubisoft, many of whose members previously worked on Far Cry 3.

    The game has been created on the same engine as Rayman Legends and Origins, UbiArt Framework, and is the reason behind the games beautiful appearance. It is literally like a vibrant story book coming to life, simply gorgeous.

    The developers took inspiration from JRPGs with most emphasis being placed on Final Fantasy VI. So the combat system is the familiar turned based combat. There is also option for local co-op with each player having unique experiences based on their character’s traits.

    A new trailer for the game revealed that the game will be available on the 30th of April, 2014. The game will be coming to every console out there, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, Wii U and also the PC. This game quickly became one of my most anticipated titles. Check out their tailer to see why:

    With beautifully original and though provoking tiles like Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls, Quantic Dream is in no way a stranger to gamers. Considering their amazing work on the PS3, I wonder how much more amazing their project being developed for the PlayStation 4 is going to be.

    Other than Beyond: Two Souls, Quantic Dream had only shown PS4 stage during the console’s initially revealed this past February. The demo was titled The Dark Sorcerer and basically showed off the capabilities of the console. But no clue was given regarding what their next IP was really going to be about.

    Till now all that has been said by David Cage, Quantic Dream boss, was that the game will be “very, very different” in comparison to Heavy Rain and Beyond: Two Souls. He added that they were “building on the same grounds but in a very, very different way." Considering both titles mentioned are already quite different from other AAA titles, I really have no idea what to expect. But it is safe to say that that is exactly what they are going for.

    "People should expect to be surprised again because this is really what we try to do with each game: not give people what they expect, give them something they want maybe without knowing this is what they want" added Cage.

    Currently this mystery project is in the pre-production phase mainly because the studio had been investing all resources on Beyond. Cage had said before that this game will be featuring “one of the strongest concepts” he has ever come up with, which makes waiting for the reveal that much harder.


    GTA Online character

    Finally the mother of all patches has been released. The major issue that was plaguing countless players and made the game literally unplayable has been fixed! I mean what is the purpose of playing if none of your progress will be saved?

    Rockstar has just released this new patch for both the Xbox 360 and PS3. This would now prevent your GTA Online characters from being randomly deleted. In a post on Rockstar Newswire they explained that the latest update will be preventing players from losing their- characters, cash, rank and apartments. Vehicles might still be lost though, but that would occur only in unique circumstances.

    "A new title update to address the reported issues of game progress loss in GTA Online as well as other technical fixes, tweaks and enhancements is now available for PlayStation 3, and we expect it to be available by tomorrow at the latest for Xbox 360".

    "This title update will resolve the cause of players losing their gameplay progress except for some specific instances where players purchase a vehicle and the save does not occur due to a cloud save failure. A fix for that particular issue is being worked on and we will provide an update as soon as we know when this will be resolved."

    Even though this patch has been released, Rockstar reiterated their advice that they gave regarding the saves once more. Exit GTA Online by returning to Single Player in order to force a save, and do not select "Retry" or create a temporary character when confronted with a message saying the Rockstar Cloud Servers are down.

    On top of all this they are currently looking into the cause behind the loss of characters and what can be done about it. However it is not known whether the characters can be restored or if compensation provided.

    There are also a list of issue that are fixed which include - issues with infinite loading times, races ending early due to spawn problems, missing interface options,retry button not working, loss of guns and ammo, getting stuck in the lobby for Last Team Standing, adjusted monetary punishment for being killed in a One on One match.



    Well in true fashion, being as sensible they are, Rockstar first took a moment to describe the possible perils that lie for gamers before they headed of explaining what to expect from GTA Online over the future. Rockstar warned fans to be wary of the issues that will be evident as GTA Online goes live,

    “There will be the typical growing pains for an online game, including but not limited to crashes, glitches, crazy bugs, gameplay modes and mechanics that need re-balancing and other surprises! Even in GTAV Story Mode, some of you may have seen a few odd and even amusing little glitches out there last week. This sort of thing is inevitable in a massive open-world game and there’ll surely be lots more unexpected oddities like this in the Online world – rest assured we’ll be monitoring and actively doing all we can to smooth such things out as they happen, but we need your help to find them, as well as your feedback to help fine tune all of the game's systems so everything is perfectly balanced.”

    Other than reiterating that up to 16 players will be able numerous activities together in GTA Online (open world exploration, watch movies, go mountain biking, take part in jobs, races and sports), Rockstar mentioned that players will also be able to create their very own characters using the the character creator, “then earn some cash and spend it getting dressed for success. You can also collect and customize cars for your garage and personalize your full weapons cache.”

    They were nice enough to also give us a heads-up on what to expect soon after the launch of GTA Online.

    Better yet was the reveal that all these updates will be coming for FREE. Rockstar also added that additional info regarding all these updates will be coming “as our plans develop through the launch period, and as we get feedback from you.” So since they are being so amazing the least we can do is be patient and not fuss too much (more like at all!) about any glitches we might experience.
