1. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
CD Projekt RED has been releasing free DLC for their critically acclaimed game: The Witcher 3. These range from new quests, skins, and treasure hunts. The last DLC comes out next week and is something fans have been asking for: a new game plus. This means players can reply the game with a fully upgraded Geralt. For those of you in Witcher 3 withdrawal( if you completed the game close to 100% there is nothing much to do except run around and kill monsters that you have already killed a thousand times), this will be something to quench your thirst. In other Witcher 3 news, the latest update added a whole new set of options to clean up your inventory, and storage chests to store your items, among some other additions. This is a very welcome update, but severely lowered the frame rate for console players.
2. Fallout 4
Fallout 4's appearance at Quake Con did not disappoint featuring a new gameplay demo. No one outside the building got to see the demo, so you can't get any information out of me! But I can give you some news from their presentation. Fallout Shelter, the free mobile game that tasks you with managing a vault, will be released for android phones on August 13th. Secondly, news emerged that 12 companions can follow you through the wasteland. You can also romance this companions no matter their gender. I don't know how well that will go with the dog or robot!
3. Guillermo Del Toro
Guillermo Del Toro recently made the news when his game, Silent Hills, was cancelled. Despite this del Toro stated that he is still working with Kojima in an interview with IGN.
“We are still friends and working into doing something together, but that’s not going to be [Silent Hills],” del Toro said.
4. Rise of the Tomb Raider
Rise of the Tomb Raider surprised everyone when it was announced to be an Xbox One exclusive. That only meant that Xbox will get it first on November 10th. News recently emerged that the game will be coming to PC early next year, and to PS4 the holiday of next year.
As you can see video game news is slow at this time. That's why we are going to try and review some old games for you. I played Journey and Deadpool, and have been playing through Borderlands 2 right now. Recently I have been re-watching The Last Airbender series, and thinking about ranking the episodes. Lastly you may see a return of our battles, where we pit two games against each other and you decide the winner.
