Dead Island 2 Resumes Development http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/142/DeadIsland2ResumesDevelopment/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/142/DeadIsland2ResumesDevelopment/ Thu, 10 Mar 2016 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming It's great news for Zombie bashing fans and fans of the Dead Island game.

 

Publisher Deep Silver have announced Sumo Digital have now taken over development of Dead Island 2, formally developed by Yager Productions.

Deep Silver reportedly parted ways with Yager due to a 'difference in vision' for the game.

 

The UK based studio Sumo Digital are responsible for Little Big Planet 3 and Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed.

 

"Sumo showed so much understanding of the brand, had creative ideas and an excellent vision that was aligned with our own...
It just made perfect sense for us to move the project to them."
said Klemens Krudratitz, chief executive of Deep Silver's parent company Koch Media.

 

Paul Porter, chief operating officer of Sumo Digital goes on to say:

"It's an honor to be charged with the evolution of such an important franchise...
We're looking forward to exceeding fan expectation with an ambitious design that we're confident will take bone crushing visceral zombie action to a whole new level."

 

Further news will be announced later, but Deep Silver are super excited about progress they are making with Sumo.

 

Let's be fair though, it probably wont be for a long while before we hear more on this!

Assassins Creed Movie Finishes Filming http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/137/AssassinsCreedMovieFinishesFilming/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/137/AssassinsCreedMovieFinishesFilming/ Fri, 22 Jan 2016 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming Ubisoft's action-adventure series Assassin's Creed Movie, starring Oscar-nominated actor Michael Fassbender has finished filming.

He plays two characters in the movie, Callum Lynch and his ancestor, a 15th century assassin named Aguilar.

 

It now goes into post production ahead of the release of the film on the 21st december this year!

 

We have also put together a little collection of images from the set for your browsing pleasure.

There are a few cracking ones in here, such as one of Michael Fassbender wielding a sword and an On Set village scene.

 

The marketing material released shows a business card, which apparently if you call the US number seen on it, 1-646-845-9162, you'll hear a voicemail from Mr. Rikkin.

Give it a try!

 

Can't wait fo rthe film, see the gallery below in the mean time:

The games creators are aiming at the moment at least for a December 2017 launch.

Shenmue 3 is scheduled to come to both PC and PlayStation 4. Sony is helping to market and produce Shenmue 3 also, so this should be a pretty epic title!

At the moment the release date is set for March 8th for Xbox One, PS4 and PC.

 

Expect to see a closed and then open beta in the coming month before release, likely to follow a similar pattern to that seen with Ubisoft's recent release of the latest Rainbow Six title.

American Truck Simulator Release http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/134/AmericanTruckSimulatorRelease/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/134/AmericanTruckSimulatorRelease/ Sat, 9 Jan 2016 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming Game developer, "SCS Software", are set to release the American version of Euro Truck Simiulator, "American Truck Simulator" early this year.

 

The game looks to be in the same format as Euro Truck Simulator, just starting out in California.

 

They state to be releasing the gaem with a load of content, but will release more updates later.

Euro Truck 2 is still going today and is regularly updated, so we doubt they will disapoint us.

 

Here is SCS Software's marketing explaination of the game, with our comments:

 

Experience the American Greatest

Drive the most famous American trucks and deliver various cargoes across the United States.

 

Well at least you will start with a 'handful' since they don't have all the licences yet, it will only release with some but they have plans to add many more.

 

Haul Through the Legendary Roads

American Truck Simulator will take you on a journey throughout the vast
landscapes full of breathtaking and iconic landmarks of North America

 

Well, for now just California!

It is the "Big Ol' US of A" don't forget. It's going to take time to map this out!

 

Become the King of the Road

Get in the seat of a driver for hire entering the local freight market and work your way
up to create one of the largest transportation companies in the United States

 

This one will be teh case from the start, the game engine used is the same as Euro Truck Simulator 2, it's almost identical.

You can earn enough money trucking for others before you buy your first actual truck.

After a while you will be able to buy your own depot and start hiring other drivers.

Before long (we quite long actually :-) ), you will be buying more depots and more trucks to expand your empire.

You can also invest in training your drivers to get more rewarding jobs or simply hire more experianced ones.

 

Not only that, but SCS have also developed a new Mod Tool for use with Blender. The community already heavily Mod Euro Truck 2, so this comes as a great addition to the franchise.

This will offer some structure to the Mods created and allow more powerful features for Modders from the offset and will pave the way for future expansion of the USA map no doubt!

 

We love Euro Truck 2 so much, we can't wait for this one.

Check out the video below.... Oh and almost forgot, it's out February 3rd 2016!

Assassins Creed Movie Photos http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/131/AssassinsCreedMoviePhotos/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/131/AssassinsCreedMoviePhotos/ Fri, 6 Nov 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming A new image from the set of assassins creed movie has been released. It gives us a glimpse of the level of quality the production of the film has. That's a mighty nice sword, but who's the face on the handle representing?

 

Joseph Formosa Randon, Assassin's Creed movie's location manager updates us all on the film's production location:

"[Of] the entire Malta shoot...by far the most complex [location] were the various areas within Valletta," Randon revealed in an interview recently. "I don't know if you know Malta, but Valletta is the capital, very busy with businesses, lots of residents, narrow streets, limited parking, all the usual fun stuff. We more or less took over, closing main streets for a couple of weeks, and transformed it all into 15th Century Seville."

 

The plot follows character Desmond Miles, an ordinary bartender who is a descendant of prominent assassin's from the Knights Templar period. Though raised as an assassin, he abandons his family to lead a normal life. He is then captured by Abestergo Industries, a modern-day Knights Templar, and forced to go back to his "ancestral memories" and alter history.

 

The cast includes Michael Fassbender (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Marion Cotillard (The Dark Knight Rises), Michael K. Williams (Boardwalk Empire), Brendan Gleeson (Edge of Tomorrow) and French actress Ariane Labed (Fidelio: Alice's Journey).

The movie is directed by Justin Kurzel (Macbeth) from a screenplay by Bill Collage and Adam Cooper.

 

Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed movie is to be released in cinemas on December 21, 2016.

We can't wait to see it!

There are 5 levels to complete, each with nice in game footage of an actual siege scenario.

Pick the right tactical choices by clicking an option within 5 seconds, then watch the next part of the drama unfold.

A bad choice will lead to mission failure.

 

Read on my frends, read on for how to get this key...

 

 

 

 

It's quite a clever marketing tactic from Ubisoft to be honest, works really well.

 

One of our personal favourite maps from the R6 games "Rouge Spear's 747 Plane level seems to have had an influence on the new game, along with some hints for a level much like Raven Shield's Villa, we can't wait to try those. Brings back some good memories!

It's in the very early stages so we don't have much to show yet, but checkout the screenshot for a glimpse of what's to come. We are currently working on the core gameplay at the moment rather than graphics and other interface elements.

 

The game will be based around mining asteroids in a hostile sector of space known as sector 53. Packed with ore rich asteroids, it's a cut throat sector of space where competition for resources is fearce. Mine asteroids, build defences and send out missiles and ships to destroy your ememies. 

 

Loosely based on an old Amiga game called K240, we want to bring back the fun of the original, but in our own hollettgaming style.

NASA spacecraft uses Playstation CPU http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/122/NASAspacecraftusesPlaystationCPU/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/122/NASAspacecraftusesPlaystationCPU/ Wed, 15 Jul 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming It may sound a little crazy, but NASA's New Horizons space probe uses the good old Sony Playstation ones CPU for the core brain of the probes processing power!

 

Why you might ask? Well NASA chooses to use well tried and tested components with high reliability due to the nature of space exploration. So rather than use something that hasn't got a track record, they will use such a CPU to endure those tricky years in space.

 

Why not use something more powerful? It's simple, it doesn't need to be, after all it doesn't need to run intensive 3d games!

The power of the Playstation CPU is more than enough for its needs and helps keep energy usage low, what's more have you ever had a PS1 crash on you? Probably not many times in the grand scheme of things if at all. There's also plenty of them still working today if it's not in the loft gathering dust!

 

Reliability is key, glad they didn't use an Xbox 360 with a potential red ring of death!

MegaWars Is Listening To The Community http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/120/MegaWarsIsListeningToTheCommunity/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/120/MegaWarsIsListeningToTheCommunity/ Fri, 15 May 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming MegaWars is listening to the community of fans already!

 

During our interview with developers Crimson Leaf, a suggestion from HollettGaming has already gone into the alpha development phase of the game, before it's even got to the beta release.

This is great news for the fans of the game, showing how input and suggestions can help shape the future of the product if it benefits others playing it too.

 

When we caught up with Matt and David again this week, here's what they had to say about it:

"The entire MegaWars team is developing this game with the players as our core focus. We are an independent studio full of gamers who know that the success of this game depends solely on our community. If the players want it, we will do everything in our power to make it happen."

 

"During our discussion with Ford and the HollettGaming team, we got a great suggestion to incorporate a 'Spectator Mode' into MegaWars. We are happy to make that addition and know that it will add a great benefit to all players."

 

It's evident this game is going to be community focused, with a real chance your suggestions can get into the final version.

Matt goes on to explain:

"This game is 15% combat, 35% resource management and 50% social. With that in mind, the MegaWars player base is an integral part of the game. We are developing for the players."

 

In fact, there is no doubt this game will continue to develop way after launch with the help of the players, much like the original effort into the web based version they recreated.

"It's simple - you wanted it, it makes the game better, Let's do it!... Even after release, we will continue to make adjustments to the game that the players want."

 

Check out the video showing some of the suggestions from players that have been updated in the alpha stages.

MegaWars Remake Coming Soon http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/118/MegaWarsRemakeComingSoon/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/118/MegaWarsRemakeComingSoon/ Sat, 9 May 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming We caught up with David Baity (Chief Technical Officer) and Matt Parisi (Chief Executive Officer) of Crimson Leaf LLP, heading up the remake of an old classic "Mega Wars".
For those of you unfamiliar with the original Mega Wars, it was a space war game in the 80s and 90s, text based and could be played over the internet.

 

David played some of the very first wars back in 1984. Back in those days, it was also rather expensive to play.
After the closure of the game servers in 1999, David had grown a great passion for the game and didn't want it to end.
David wanted to bring back the game and make it "more accessible and cheaper for fans" like himself to play.
This inspired him to learn how to code such a game.

 

In 2009, David started to rebuild the game in HTML, with the help of other fans of the original.
While following the same gameplay mechanics, the entire game was recoded from scratch and was even based on the original manual, allowing the fans to play once again and help tune the game to the communities liking.
Still predominantly browser based with text and images only, it was time to stepup the game to a new level, to entice an entirely new fan base.

 

The new Mega Wars game is now in development in full 3D glory, based on the Unity Engine.
Gameplay keeps as close to the original as possible, but with notable enhancements of course with modern day technology on hand.

The main unique thing about Mega Wars is the way the "wars" work.
A war or multiple wars in the Mega Wars universe last 30 real days. During this time you can play as much or a little as you like and help your team of other players take over planets and conquer the enemy team.
Scoring is done both individually and as a team, to determine the winners and the end of the war, before a new war begins.
Once a war is over, the game is all reset for the next war. You can't take anything with you from the last game and tehre is no level up system.
This keeps players on equal grounds with each other, even new players, though a skilled veteran of the game would have the upper hand.
It is all about skill and strategy.

 

There are also other game modes outside of the 30 day wars.
Academy mode allows players to go play on their own with no need for other players around, a single player mode if you like.
5 v 5 team mode is a faster play option, lasting just an hour or so, rather than a full on 30 day war.
Other game modes will be available too.

 

Currently in Alpha stages and under going internal review, a Kickstarter launch starts in July.
Once the Kickstarter ends, August will see the release to Beta which is where things will get interesting as players can play the game straight away while the game continues to be developed.

 

Official game release out of Beta is looking to be the end of the year, targeted at PC, Mac and Linux initially.
At release this year for desktop, there will be an app too for mobile phones, to allow alerts for the game and some planet management, but not a full scale game.
When asked about the possibility of a full mobile version, David and Matt were keen to point out that if the community wanted it, it certainly would be considered:
"We are an indie shop, and if the community wants that then we'll make sure we get it for them..." says Matt

 

There are plans for release on Playstation and Xbox later next year should things all go to plan.

 

This is effectively a game made by the fans, for the fans with a great amount of passion and community input.
It should be without doubt a real "blast"!

Dead Island 2 Delayed until 2016 http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/116/DeadIsland2Delayeduntil2016/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/116/DeadIsland2Delayeduntil2016/ Mon, 4 May 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming The developer Deep Silver has announced the delay of the next Dead Island game (Dead Island 2) until 2016.

Originally set for a 2015 launch, they have decided to hold off in order to "realize its full potential".

 

The developers have every intention of making this the best release in the franchise so far, adding:

 

"We have always set ourselves a big goal for Dead Island 2: to create the sequel that takes Dead Island to the next level. A game that takes what our fans tell us they love about Dead Island--multiple different characters to play with, co-op, and turning a paradise setting into a zombie slaughter melee--and a game that adds a ton more content and combat options on top of that,"

 

"And we wanted to have all of that that done for release in spring 2015. We have been looking at the game long and hard, and we have decided we didn't reach that goal we set out to achieve quite yet. This is why we have decided to delay Dead Island 2 to 2016."

 

"Right now we are focusing purely on development, and we will have more info to share at a later stage. We know that our fans will be disappointed by this news, but by giving Dead Island 2 more time we are confident that everyone will get a better game to play as a result."

 

So in honesty, it looks like a good thing for the game, while it might be a bad thing for the zombie lovers out there having to wait that bit longer!

Assassins Creed film starts production September 2015 http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/117/AssassinsCreedfilmstartsproductionSeptember2015/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/117/AssassinsCreedfilmstartsproductionSeptember2015/ Sun, 3 May 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming According to reports, Hollywood star Michael Fassbender, who most recently played the role of Magneto in the X-Men series, has confirmed that the Assassin's Creed film version of Ubisoft's very popular franchise will begin production officially this September.

 

"You say it's a long time but what I've found–it's all new to me but starting to develop scripts and work on them, they take time," says Fassbender.

 

"It just takes time to get a good story together and we really want to do it right. It's exciting. It's going to start this year, we'll be filming in September."

 

Moreover, when asked about the games and time periods the first movie will be based on, he stated:

"That's always the challenge of something that's so dense, to really find something and pare it down and basically, there are so many elements to it, so trying to translate that to an audience, you have to pick key things. So yes, that is part of it, getting through the density of it and paring down and engaging a simple story."

 

The problem with such films of popular games is they tend to be a bit of a let down and don't really add up to the gamers expectations.

Whatever time period thery choose, let's hope the story line is as in-depth as the games themselves and ensure the film does the game justice.

Watch Dogs 2 Leaked http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/115/WatchDogs2Leaked/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/115/WatchDogs2Leaked/ Thu, 30 Apr 2015 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming  

Rumour has it that Ubisoft is in development of Watch Dogs 2.

This may or may not be true, though the news comes from an employee of Ubisoft claiming to have worked on various titles such Watchdogs and Watchdogs 2.

 

This comes from the LinkedIn profile of one Julien Risse, a senior gameplay designer at Ubisoft, whose credits include Watch Dogs, the Bad Blood DLC, and - this is the important bit - Watch Dogs 2.

Risse has since updated his profile to remove the Watch Dogs 2 reference.

 

It wouldn't be a surprise for this to be true, the first game was well received. Ubisoft has yet to comment.

Actor Michael Fassbender will head up the movie with the director Justin Kurzel.

 

20th Century Fox is said to want the film to go before cameras soon, though there have also been reports of that Fassbender left the project, but he said that they are not true and that the writers are still working on the script.

 

The release has been delayed until August 2015, so it's a way off yet!

 

"There's so much cool stuff in the game that we're actually spoiled for choice in terms of what we can use and what we can't, but we also want to bring new elements to it and perhaps our own version of things that already exist in the game," Fassbender told IGN in an interview. "But we're definitely making a feature film, and we're approaching it as a feature film, as opposed to approaching it as a video game."

 

Keep an eye out for more on this later in the year.

There's not much more than that though! The date has been given as 'fall' of 2015, but will we really see it then? With only about a year before the pending date and nothing more than a cover picture, it begs the question of why announce so little? Is this just a way of Microsoft trying to keep interest in the console? With sales of the playstation beating Xbox one outright, maybe this tactic will delay a few more people going to buy the Sony console. Who knows, but our guess is it will get delayed to at least nearer Christmas, call us pessimistic :-)

Halo film: Halo 4 - Forward Unto Dawn http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/98/HalofilmHalo4ForwardUntoDawn/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/98/HalofilmHalo4ForwardUntoDawn/ Thu, 1 May 2014 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming Finally got around to watching the Halo film: Halo 4 - Forward Unto Dawn

 

While the story line follows a young cadet through his troubles of becoming a man, the movie itself shows some great effects and stays true to the Halo series.

This is a great film for Halo fans, not such a great film as a standalone though.

 

You get a bit of a blast of action at the start, but then you get into the middle section where not much happens appart from character building.

The character building part you get the feeling they are trying a little too hard on making it a believable story, non the less it does get you to know the characters and sets the scene for the end of film climax.

 

The effects on this film are really great, they make you feel you are in the game world, yet still watching a blockbluster title. There's an interesting twist right at the end that leaves an open end for follow episodes.

While the film may not be that interesting to the general public, what a great film it is for those Halo fans!

 

I wont spoil the plot for those interested in watching it, it's certainly worth a couple of bucks from your local video supplier in the bargain section, or available in Netflix or similar.

Advised for Halos fans, avoid if not!

They released a series of humoured images of the main character 'hacking' the release date onto machines around the Ubi offices.

The problem is, they have already delayed the release before and in a crafty fashion have added a little * next to the release date just to be on the safe side I guess (check the image we posted).

 

So the date looks to be: 27 May 2014

 

While we wait to see if this date transpires, here's a gameplay video:

Fightback Free iOS game http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/96/FightbackFreeiOSgame/ http://www.hollettgaming.com/newsarticle/96/FightbackFreeiOSgame/ Sat, 28 Dec 2013 00:00:00 GMT Latest News HollettGaming Fightback has been released for iOS, taking us back to the 90s side scrolling beat em up days, with a modern twist.

 

The basics of this game are quite simple, beat you way through the streets or as it is in this game, floors of tower blocks.
And the story line is the same format as those old arcade games, fight to get to a big boss who is holding someone kidnap.
Ok so nothing new here, but this works especially well on the modern touch screens we have in our pockets these days.


The controls are simple, a little repetitive in a way but great fun all the same. Its great to see how well the swipe and tap controls have bee utilised for this genre, with gestures providing the ability to perform certain moves.

 

Its also great to see the engine used is the Unity development platform. This is a great showing of what Unity can do.
Ragdoll effects on your enemeys once killed is great to watch, especially when you catch them with a powerful flying kick.

Slowmotion effects also make an appearance when performing evades, or when using a gun to select and shoot targets.

 

 

The developers have also been kind with the free to play, pay to progress format of the latest big games.
Its easy enough to earn credits and gold bars and the time to wait for your stamina to replenish so you can continue playing is quite short, only if you are really impatient do you need to spend any real money...
That being said, some of the high end equipment and upgrades would take an age to earn without spending any money, but these are not essential to complete the game.
Power ups and upgrades are god fun and there is a never ending street mode you can play to try get though as many streets as possible should you get bored of story mode.

 

The verdict:
Well put together game, easy but rewarding gameplay and controls, fun and long lasting.
