Rock Band 4 is On Its Way

As what many have suspected, it is verified that Rock Band 4 is coming officially. It is scheduled for the launching for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2015.

The news of the comeback of the hidden franchise is going to be a music to the ears. Yet for anybody else those big masses that contributed propel the music or the band genre into outmost success before the console generation and yet abandoned it- the question could be why. Why is it that now is the right time to bring the Rock Band back after five years?

According to the Harmonix project manager Daniel Sussman, it is a simple question to answer. The Rock Band is inevitably connected to music and as long as the music if in our lives, then Rock Band has its place. He also added, “I tie our game in music into a very concrete way. Say what you will about band games and their rise and fall, but music is still an integral part of world culture, and as long as there’s an interest in music, I feel there’s an opportunity for us to continue to leverage Rock Band as a way of interacting with music.”
“When we look at where we are with this console cycle, it’s actually in a pretty similar spot to where we were when we released the first Rock Band. And guess what isn’t on the PS4 or Xbox One? Rock Band. And we think it’s a fun enough game that it should,” Sussman added.

I found it difficult to oppose. Being someone who listed Rock Band as one of those key experiences of the previous generation of consoles, I am eager for the comeback of the game so as like the others, have not taken off the mass of plastic instruments at home for a couple of months. While Sussman and Harmonix were not prepared to disclose in a particular way Rock Band 4 would innovate on the recognized music game formula saying that exclusivity would be the point of the new game. Breaking the user based into pro mode players or for those having the keyboards and for those who had the right peripherals is out.
“We talk about Rock Band 3 within the studio as something we worked very hard on, as a phenomenal game, but in a lot of ways it’s flawed in some pretty key respects,” Sussman said. “One of the things I’m looking forward to with Rock Band 4 is our design is really focused. We’re focusing on the things we think are going to impact the most people, and not use game mode or hardware to splinter the audience.”
“So our way there is to truly think about the developer dollar and spending it in the areas that will entice most people. When we begin about the audience that can be addressed, we wanted the features we created to bring people together and not to focus at the hardware as a thing that is going to split our audience apart.”

This is great news for the fans of the Rock Band series as this is a huge franchise. Check out my Top 10 Rhythm games of all time below.

Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels Expansion DLC

For those who still bumping Forza Horizon 3 and was a fan of hot wheels back in the days might want to cast their eyes on the upcoming expansion or DLC.

The Horizon 3’s upcoming Hot Wheels expansion will combined both Hot Wheels cars and tracks to the game, giving us a more arcade-style looking gameplay. Players visit six “themed” island off Australia’s coast, each connected by Hot Wheels tracks that consist of loops, corkscrews, and more.

There are ten hot wheels vehicles that you will be able to access if you grab the dlc such as the 1969 Hot Wheels Twin Mill, 2016 Jeep Tailcoat plus many more. 

The hot wheels DLC will be available from the 9h of May for around £16 or $20 and for those who took the plunge to grab the expansion pass for £30 or $35 will be to download this and the Blizzard Mountain which dropped a few months back. In addition to the upcoming DLC there will also be a full game update coming the 9th of May which is something worth looking out for. 

Final Verdict

All in all I have been a massive fan of Forza Horizon 3. I must admit I haven’t played in a while but as a fan of Hot wheels back in the days this does have a sense of a appeal and will be something I am looking to test out. It kind of reminds me of the likes of Stunts in GTA 5 so I can only image that this will be a fun experience disregarding how whacky it looks. I have always been a fan of arcade style racers so can only assume that this will be refreshing to play.

Ubisoft Removing X Rated Female NPC in Watch Dogs 2

Ubisoft Removing X Rated Female NPC in Watch Dogs 2

It goes without saying that you need to be very careful of what you share or post online as recently sharing Watch Dogs 2 content that features a female NPC genitalia got someone banned from PSN.

In wake of this Ubisoft has issued an apology over Watch Dogs 2’s genitalia gaffe where the player stumbled upon an explicit Female NPC in the game. The Player shared the image on Twitter and was then Blocked by Sony for a month on PSN.

Seems like Sony was moving like the internet police as literally shortly after the Player shared the image, the player was contacted by Sony, who told him they had blocked him from their PlayStation Network for a month, because sharing content of an adult or sexual nature from its consoles was against its rules.

However, after outrage from other gamers, Sony later had to backtrack and stated that the email had been sent “incorrectly” and the players account had been unblocked, although Sony continued to insist he was in breach of its terms of service.

In terms of Ubisoft apology for the Naked NPC in Watch Dogs 2

“We’re aware that one of the NPC models in Watch Dogs 2 is rendered in a way that is particularly explicit,” Ubisoft said in the statement. “While Watch Dogs 2 is a mature-rated game, we apologize and will update this NPC model to make it more consistent with other NPC models in the game in a patch to be released this week. We also are working with our first-party partners to ensure that players can continue to play and share all content from the game within the bounds of the first parties’ respective codes of conduct.”

Overall I totally understand and agree that Ubisoft and Sony should take necessary action which protects their reputation and also prevent content which could be accessible from people younger than the age of 18 viewable. At the same time it does make it seem that by watering down a 18 rated game kind of defeats the object of putting this age restriction on the game, just for them to end up removing these type of explicit content. I personally expect to see some form of adult related content in a game which is rated 18 but I guess maybe this particular content was going a step to far?
