‘Game of Thrones’ teasers begin with Arya Stark’s darkness

26 Nov

We're still months away from the debut of the fifth season of Game of Thrones, but the tantalizing hints about what's to come have already begun. First up is a brief video snippet featuring Arya Stark. She broods, she stabs, she dashes through the shadows, and she speaks the words, "I see a darkness in you." It's all very ominous and as yet indeterminate (at least for those of us who haven't read the books), though it seems to mark only the start of a series of such snippets, which will be distributed to fans who visit the newly introduced Three Eyed Raven website. Its sole purpose for now is to sign people up to receive updates via Twitter DM or text message. The small print on the SMS signup page requires consent to receive up to 15...

The Crew Servers Will Go Live Next Monday, Ubisoft Confirms

26 Nov

the crew

The Crew is just a few days away from making its debut. The game is Ubisoft’s upcoming MMO Car-PG that is looking to reshape the racing genre.

Anticipation and expectations are high for the game and Ubisoft has now announced that the game’s servers will go live on December 1st, a day before its launch.

Just recently, Ubisoft revealed that similar to Assassin’s Creed Unity, The Crew won’t getting any reviews until the game has been released and servers are live. You can read more about it, here.

The Crew has been extensively tested through multiple betas and the game looks to be fully ready for launch.

What’s a bit odd is that the game is being released on PS4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 but there is no PS3 version to be seen.

Ubisoft explained the situation and stated that The Crew is build for current-gen systems and they ported in to the last. However, Xbox 360 hardware is similar to its successor, which made it an easier task to port the game on this platform.

“The Crew is originally built for the new generation of consoles so when we made the decision to port it to the previous generation of consoles, we decided to focus solely on the platform closest to the new-gen’s technical infrastructure, which is the Xbox 360,”

Some might argue that Ubisoft was just being lazy but that is just their opinion I guess. The Crew will release on all of the announced platforms, starting December 2nd.

Splatoon Screenshots Detail Octopus Corps, Turf Wars and More

26 Nov

Splatoon
Nintendo EAD Group No. 2 might be all Japanese but their game Splatoon is getting major attention all over the globe. They recently detailed many of the game’s features – albeit in Japanese – that we would love to try out.

The official Twitter profile of the game received a boatload of tweets from the developers (thanks NeoGAF for the translations) where they have talked about the army of Octopi, Turf Wars features and a lot more.

An image of the Octopus Corps base was shared along with more images of the Octopi themselves; they are mostly octopus legs, but they still are dangerous! They have this underground world of theirs and are longing for the Squid world above them. An attack on the protagonist’s world is incoming.

Talking of legs, an image of an enemy type was also shared that uses some kind of a hoverboard to move around (what else could it do, the enemy is nothing but a single octopus leg itself). Don’t take it easy though, it can throw vicious ink at you!

As you would already know, the characters in the game use inks to fight their way. the Squid ink provides more of an escape route from the predators and the octopus ink on the other hand create something like a smoke screen.

In the Turf Wars there are special weapons that you will be able to use. Splashing the ground with paint gives you powers like Barrier, which will reflect the incoming attacks from the army.

Splatoon is a 4v4 third person shooter with a single player campaign where you are an inkling that can change forms between humans and squid. You splash the world with your type of ink to mark the territory and make way forward.

Splatoon 2 Splatoon 3 Splatoon 4 Splatoon 5 Splatoon 6 Splatoon 7 Splatoon 8 Splatoon 9 Splatoon 10 Splatoon 12 Splatoon

The game is slated for a release on Wii U in the second quarter of 2015.

Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Pokemon-Amie Guide – How to Increase Affection

26 Nov

Pokemon_Amie
Pokemon-Amie feature inside the PlayNav allows players to bond with their Pokemon through a variety of activities. A happier Pokemon is much more effective in battle than a normal one. Happiness can be divided into three categories: Affection, Fullness and Enjoyment.

For more help on Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, read our How to Catch Regigigas, Battle Maison Guide, How to Catch Primal Pokemon and Items Locations Guide.

Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Pokemon-Amie

Increasing Affection level also has a chance to reward players with a décor item. Affectionate Pokemon are also more capable in battles and can even cure or heal them and land more critical hits.

The activities available in PlayNav are:

  • Pet Pokemon: this increases the affection however enjoyment decreases
  • Give Poke Puffs: affection and fullness both increase
  • Play minigames: fullness decreases while enjoyment is increased
  • Play the Making Faces game: affection and enjoyment increases while fullness decreases

Poke-Puffs

The poke puffs, the food players can feed them come in five flavors (Sweet, Mint, Citrus, Mocha and Spice) and four levels. The better the level of a Poke Puff, the more affection a pokemon gains by eating it. The fullness gain remains unchanged regardless of Poke Puff level.

Basic Poke Puffs: increases affection by a little and can be obtained by clearing mini games on easy mode

Frosted Poke Puffs: increases affection by a little and can be obtained by clearing mini games on normal mode

Fancy Poke Puffs: increases affection quite a bit and are obtained by clearing mini games on hard mode

Deluxe Poke Puffs: affection gain is quite high however these are obtained by clearing mini games in unlimited mode.

While clearing mini game only rewards with the Poke Puff of its corresponding level, if players attain 5 stars in a mini game, they might obtain a Poke Puff of the next level. So if a player earns 5 stars in easy mode, there is a chance they will be rewarded with Frosted Poke Puffs.

Apart from these 4 levels of Poke Puffs, there are six special collectible ones too which grant even more affection than a Deluxe Poke Puff.

Supreme Wish Poke Puff: increases affection a lot and is received upon player’s birthday.

Supreme Honor Poke Puff:  increases affection a lot and is received upon entering the Hall of Fame

Supreme Spring Poke Puff: increases affection a lot and is received upon beating a Pokemon-Amie mini game on Unlimited mode with 5 stars

Supreme Summer Poke Puff: increases affection a lot and is received upon beating Head It in Unlimited mode with 5 stars

Supreme Autumn Poke Puff: increases affection a lot and is received upon beating Berry Picker in unlimited mode with 5 stars

Supreme Winter Poke Puff:  increases affection a lot and is received when players beat Tile Puzzle in Unlimited mode with 5 stars

Pokemon-Amie Mini-Games

These mini games allow players to have fun with their Pokemon and increase their Enjoyment stat and earn more Poke Puffs to feed them. Players need at least three healthy Pokemon in their team to play mini games and more games are unlocked as they progress.

Berry Picker: players have to feed their Pokemon berries as quickly as possible by taking them from trees on which they grow. The number of berries increases with the difficulty: three in easy, five in normal, seven in hard mode.

In the unlimited mode, players have to keep their Pokemon happy, three failed attempts and they lose the game. In all the game modes, the Pokemon appears at the bottom of the screen and players have to drag the berry from the tree to the Pokemon.

The berry must be the same as the one which is in the thought bubble over the Pokemon head.

Head It: this is somewhat like soccer; players have to make sure their Pokemon headbutts the falling yarns from the sky. If players keep on hitting the yarn balls, they gain a combo meter which increases the points gained.

As players become more and more successful, the yarn balls start coming with an increased speed.

Tile Puzzle: players need to reassemble a scrambled image as quickly as possible by tapping the pieces to swap them around. A picture is shown at the start and they need to memorize it to complete the mini game.

In easy mode the puzzle is of 20 pieces, 30 in normal and 48 in hard. In unlimited, players have to solve as many puzzles as possible before time runs out.

Making Faces Game

Players need to use the Nintendo 3DS’ camera for this to imitate the certain faces or actions which their Pokemon tells them to do. Players need to keep the imitation game going for as long as possible. This doesn’t reward any Poke Puffs but increases the affection towards players.

Along with all these activities, players can also decorate the room of their Pokemon and add fancy décor items such as cushions or wallpapers. There are over 200 décor items in game to make the experience memorable and unique for players as well as their Pokemon.

Affection gain is the key to being a master trainer as Pokemon receive various benefits depending on their level of affection towards the players. The lowest affection a Pokemon can has is a single heart and with increase in hearts, the benefits grow.

Each level of affection not only grants bonuses of that specific level but also all the ones from the levels before it.

Heart x2
The Pokemon shows eagerness to fight by moving a little in battle. The Pokemon earns 1.2 times more experience from fights.

Heart x3
The message when Pokemon enters or exits a battle changes to show the bond with player. There is a chance that a move that would have normally caused a Pokemon to faint might leave it alive with 1HP now.

Heart x4
During the fight, the Pokemon turns its face to look at the player sometimes. Pokemon may cure itself of a status condition at the end of a turn. The message when Pokemon is sleeping changes.

Players can pet the Pokemon when the enemy Pokemon faints. The Pokemon may dodge an opponent’s attack.

Heart x5
The Pokemon lands more critical hits which deal around 50% more damage. Each level of affection not only grants bonuses of that specific level but also all the ones from the levels before it.

If you find anything confusing, comment and we will help you out!

New Destiny Video Shows The Dark Below Content in a Funny Way

26 Nov

Frankly, this new video of Destiny in kind of weird and gives a Guardians of The Galaxy vibe. However, if you ask me, its really funny.Still, I am not a Destiny fan and this video surely doesn’t help matters at all.

However, it’s not a bad way to market their upcoming DLC expansion called, The Dark Below.

The Dark Below will be the first DLC expansion for Destiny and will add three new story missions, a new Raid, new guns and armor along with new level 32 cap. In addition, it adds a new strike mission but if you are a PlayStation user, you’ll get not one but two strike missions.

That’s not all, the new DLC will also add three new Crucible maps for the guardians to explore. According to Bungie:

“Expand your Destiny adventure with a wealth of weapons, armor, and gear earned in new story quests and missions, three new competitive multiplayer arenas, and a new Strike and Raid.”

The Dark Below is releasing on December 9 across all platforms and will be followed by a second DLC known as House of Wolves.

The House of Wolves remains to be detailed but as soon as something is announced by Bungie, we’ll let you know. Till then, stay tuned to SegmentNext for more on Destiny.
