Is EA games ready to step up to the ring for Fight Night Champion 2?

EA Games is notorious for among other things cancelling games outside of its popular titles. There’s been much speculation that the Fight Night series may be the next on their list.

Is EA games ready to step up to the ring for Fight Night Champion 2?

This seems odd to me as who wouldn’t want to go toe to toe with some of the greatest boxing legends the world has ever known? Well with the added protection of knowing there’ll be no lengthy hospital stay afterwards.
All it takes is a simple search on Youtube to see the constant fans pleading for a sequel. Among the more popular videos fans beg for them to add Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather to the line up. So it’s doubtful that EA would cancel the game due to lack of popularity.

There however be another reason for the silence one that might seem outlandish to some.

Final Verdict

Whenever you look for information regarding Fight Night Champion there’s one phrase that frequently shows up. Tags of “ The best boxing game ever” or “ Classic boxing game ” appear quite often next to any mention of Fight Night. The series isn’t just one of the run of the mill beloved games from childhood it’s been deemed the ‘Madden if Boxing’ as it would appear.

Meaning that fans come have to come to expect some aspect of familiarity in the series alongside elements that make each installments stand out on its own. In other words EA might be trying to shake its old reputation of throwing games together for the sake of profit and put in effort to make the game unique. Take for example the difference between San Andreas and the rest of the Grand Theft Auto series.

So what do you think, has it been scrapped or do you think EA trying to turn over a new leaf?

Will Streets Of Rage 4 Live Up To The Hype?

Will Streets Of Rage 4 Live Up To The Hype

Streets Of Rage 4 is a game that many old-school gamers have wanted for over two decades. It is one of those games that we all wanted, but deep down never felt that we would get. Well, Sega has been going above and beyond with their fanservice in recent years and part of that is that they are finally bringing Streets Of Rage back with Streets Of Rage 4.

Streets Of Rage The Begging!

Back in the 16 bit days one of the crown jewels of Sega’s crown was Streets Of Rage. The first game in the series was incredible and showed that the Genesis/Mega Drive could manage fine without Final Fight. Streets Of Rage 2 came along and still to this day is arguably the greatest scrolling beat em up of all time. Then came the third game which crammed so much stuff into a Genesis/Mega Drive cartridge it is unreal. It may not be quite as well remember as the second game, but Streets Of Rage 3 is still an incredible game.

Will Streets Of Rage 4 Live Up To The Hype

With three fantastic games released for the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive and two great ports for the 8-bit Master System and Game Gear. You would think that Streets Of Rage would have gone onto even bigger things. Well, that was not the case, Sega felt that the days of the scrolling beat em up were coming to an end and Streets Of Rage was left in the closet only to be seen when Sega would release a terrible plug and play system or a compilation.

Streets Of Fighting Force

Streets Of Rage actually nearly came close to be given a 3D makeover in the 90’s. Interestingly a game called Fighting Force was originally going to be a new Streets Of Rage game for the Sega Saturn. The development team though, Core did not want to just release the game for the Sega Saturn. They wanted it on the PlayStation and Nintendo 64 as well! This, of course, was something Sega refused to do and as a result Fighting Force was born. Interestingly if you look at Fighting Force it is actually very easy to see how it could have been a Streets Of Rage game.

24 Years Later!

The announcement for Streets Of Rage 4 came out of nowhere. What is really cool is that the game clearly is going to have that same 2D Streets Of Rage gameplay. However, the art style is very eye-catching. They have gone for a cell shaded style and it looks incredible. So far we have only really seen Blaze and Axel and both of them have never looked better.

A Successful Reboot?

It is always a hard thing for a game company to do when it comes to rebooting and reinventing a series that people have strong nostalgic feelings for. Streets Of Rage 4 has some very, very big shoes to fill. There have been some reboots of series such as Killer Instinct, Tomb Raider, Mortal Kombat and if you want to go back further, Metal Gear Solid that were able to keep the feeling of the past games, but reinvent them in a new fun and amazing style.

Will Streets Of Rage 4 Live Up To The Hype

Hopefully, that is what we are going to get with Streets Of Rage 4. Many people will put Streets Of Rage 2 and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time together as the best beat em up of all time. Turtles In Time was actually rebooted back on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It looked great but lacked the fun, charm, and soul of the original. Streets Of Rage 4 will hopefully not be like that and be the sequel that we have all waited so long for.

Will Streets Of Rage 4 Live Up To The Hype

We have seen very little so far, but what we have seen looks great so make sure that Streets Of Rage 4 is on your radar.

Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

Is Sims 4 on the console too expensive?

Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

Maybe its just me and maybe this has been happening for years in games but I am starting to think that DLC’s are becoming expensive.
If you follow the channel you will know that I been a huge fan of sims 4 coming to console and whilst I am enjoying the game I have seen the latest game pack surfaced and this has got me thinking that the overall game is starting to get a little expensive to keep up with all the expansion packs. Maybe I have been living under a rock and not paying too much attention but I am literally blown away by how much I may end up possibly paying to have the full experience of Sims 4 after all the DLC has been released.

Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

The latest game pack Dine out surfaced on the 9th of January and is available for 17.99 or 16.99 if you have EA access and whilst that might not be breaking the bank for some when you consider that the first DLC bundle which consists of City Living, Vintage Glamour Stuff and Vampires cost £45 or £40 with EA Access that is close to £60 and then when you add the base game then you looking at £100 so far for the full experience of the sims.

Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

Now I know what some hardcore fans will say that this has always been the case with PC version and some will say that this is what you should expect from a EA game but I am not gonna lie it has taken me by surprise that I have nearly spent over £100 on Sims 4 especially considering that I got the deluxe version on launch. Obviously I didn’t expect the DLC’s to be free but I thought that we may get a season pass or something for maybe £45 with all DLC and in my eyes £90 for the overall experience could be easily justifiable maybe thats me asking to much and being greedy but I feel by releasing the packs in drips and you keep buying I think it will hurt if EA brings out a complete version of Sims 4 for £45 with all DLC included. Whilst I am not completely sure what expansions will be 100% coming to consoles There is still Get to Work, Get Together and Cats and Dogs all possible to move to console plus not to mention the garage of Stuff packs and game packs which are currently available on the PC version so after every DLC and even the game packs and stuff packs are released god knows how much it will all rack up to.

As I am a fan of the Sims 4 n console and currently enjoying my experience this will have to be a expense that I will have to take on the chin even though it is leaving a bitter taste.

Sims 4 Getting expensive with DLC’s

Anyway peeps what do you make of the price for the DLC’s for Sims 4 console version do you think its worth it that you might have to spend close to £100 at this present moment to experience the DLC’s that are currently available. As I said I know that this is the case for PC version and I know that all games nowadays come with DLC’s that will rack up the price for the full experience but I rarely but DLC for game and usually if I do it will have a season pass that will be around £35 so most games that I tend to play or get DLC for will rarely exceed £100 but hey maybe I need to invest more into my games additional content.

Driving Force Behind The Grand Theft Auto Series

Who is behind success of the Grand Theft Auto Series

Driving Force Behind The Grand Theft Auto Series

There are a lot of video games out in the world today – some of them are amazing, some of them are absolutely terrible, and some are quite possibly the most renowned franchise in the entire world and Grand Theft Auto is one of those franchises.

You ask anyone what video games they’ve heard of – even if they don’t like video games – they will more than likely say the name Grand Theft Auto and it just goes to show the type of scope this series has, but how did it ever get to this point? Who are the main studios/personalities behind a series that only seems to become more beloved with every iteration? Well, that’s where I’ve decided to try and figure this out!

Driving Force Behind The Grand Theft Auto Series

To kick things off, we’ve got the studio that was commissioned by Rockstar Games to make the brunt of GTA 5 and that is their own company, known as Rockstar North. Rockstar North is the studio behind the most popular Grand Theft Auto games, such as San Andreas, GTA 4 and its episodic content, and GTA 5. Clearly one of Rockstar’s biggest studios with over 360 employees on offer, the studio have worked hard on all of these titles in the past and continuously design new content for GTA 5. Quite honestly, if it wasn’t for Rockstar North, the world wouldn’t have had some of the greatest GTA titles and quite possibly one of the most popular video games ever; with GTA 5 being the 4th most sold video game in history.

Driving Force Behind The Grand Theft Auto Series

Despite this knowledge, Rockstar North can’t take all of the credit for the series success, can it? No, of course not; not when you need to keep in mind that Rockstar North didn’t develop Liberty City Stories or Vice City Stories – a pair of games that fans loved having the chance to jump back into. Liberty City Stories came out in 2005 and Vice City Stories came out a year later in 2006, much to many fans excitement. The team behind these two games are Rockstar Leeds, the studio that took up most of the conjecture and development drive on this one, but did receive consistent help from Rockstar North, whom we’ve already discussed.

Now, we’ve already discussed the two big studios behind some of the best parts of the Grand Theft Auto franchise, all of who work under the power house that is Rockstar Games, but just who is behind this powerhouse of a company that is now unanimous with the GTA name?

Well, these 2 just so happen to be brothers to one another: Sam and Dan Houser are the pair that started the Rockstar Games label that was founded back in December, 1998. Starting with Sam Houser, he is one of the main creative driving forces behind the GTA franchise in terms of design and became the producer from the third game onwards and was responsible for bringing the third game into a 3D perspective that we all know and love from this franchise by now.

Dan Houser, however is the creative mind behind this franchise’s writing and story development. Every single GTA game has had Dan writing or co-writing their story in some way and pretty much all of this series plot-developments and story direction is thanks to Dan Houser and that’s something that’s fared this series very well ever since the beginning.

The pair of them are what got this franchise off of the ground and brought it to the mainstream and considering that the pair constantly work on the franchise to this very day just goes to show their level of dedication for the franchise, the company, and most especially their fans, which makes the Grand Theft Auto series that much more impressive!

Driving Force Behind The Grand Theft Auto Series

Everyone behind the Grand Theft Auto series are quite proud to see how far the series has come and it seems the powerhouse that is Rockstar Games knows what they’re doing when it comes to these games. Time after time they’ve put the series in some of their most trusted subsidiaries and their development studios and it’s just resulted in more impressive and incredible GTA games that fans around the world have simply fallen in love with and who can blame them? I know I certainly can’t!
