Street Fighter 5 free to play next week on Steam, CFN being overhauled

24 Mar

Changes are coming to Street Fighter 5, and Capcom is giving everyone a chance to give them a go next week.

Capcom has announced that some big changes are coming to Street Fighter 5, particularly to the Capcom Fighters Network (CFN).

The publisher said it’s been working hard to address connectivity issues players have been running into since launch, and has now completely rebuilt the CFN for a better online experience.

In order to test it out, Capcom is making Street Fighter 5 free to play on Steam from March 28 to April 3. The beta client will be separate from the main game, and will only include access to the game’s online modes.

Existing players’ CFN username and other stats will carry over to the beta, whereas new players will get to create CFN logins. All of the game’s fighters will be unlocked, including post-launch characters. Anything earned during the beta, as well as stats recorded, will be wiped after April 3.

This build will also come with the season 2 balance adjustments, which is good news for competitive players. Capcom detailed a list of improvements players should see with the new CFN, check out the full thing at the link.

The beta kicks off, only on Steam, at 1pm PT, 4pm ET, 8pm GMT on Tuesday, March 28. It wraps up at 12pm PT, 3pm ET, 7pm GMT on Monday, April 3.

For Honor patch 1.04 released, here’s what it does

24 Mar

For Honor’s latest patch does a bit of housekeeping, and fixes a bug introduced with the previous patch.

for_honor_launch_screens (4)

For Honor has a new patch available, version 1.04. The update was released yesterday on PC, PS4, and Xbox One following server maintenance.

1.04 doesn’t bring many changes, but it does have a fix for the Conqueror glitch the previous patch introduced. Ubisoft also said the update includes fixes to improve match stability.

Find the full notes below:

General (all platforms):

  • Various bug fixes to improve performance and match stability.
  • Addressed the Conqueror graphical glitch introduced in the last Live Update as part of our ongoing session stability fixes.

Xbox One specific

  • Added functionality to enable/disable invites.
  • A player that is in a state that cannot be joined (Story Mode, Practicing, Loading Screens) will not be able to send invites
  • Game invite options will no longer be greyed out if there’s a free slot

In other For Honor news, the game recently came under fire after players calculated it would take years to earn enough Steel to be able to afford everything in the in-game store without paying money, which prompted the developer to respond.

Unfortunately, the response only helped fuel the fire. Server issues are still being reported by players to this day, which also isn’t helping the game’s case.

Cheetah tears it up in new Injustice 2 trailer

20 Mar

Get a better look at Injustice 2’s Cheetah.

NetherRealm has released a new character trailer for another one of the many heroes and villains in Injustice 2.

Today’s pick is Cheetah, widely associated with Wonder Woman lore as being amongst her biggest adversaries. We were previously introduced to Cheetah’s viciousness in the ‘Here come the girls’ trailer, which only showed a tiny bit of her in-game look.

Today’s trailer, however, takes a bit of deeper dive, offering a much better look at many of her main attacks, including her ultimate. Cheetah is seen tearing up Deadshot, Robin, and of course, Wonder Woman.

There are no CG-style cut-scenes featuring her, though, so it probably means she won’t play a role in the game’s story.

Injustice 2 is out May 16 on PS4, and Xbox One.

For Honor will cost you over $700 in microtransactions for all unlocks, or two and a half years to earn without them

20 Mar

For Honor players have run the numbers, and they’re not thrilled with the outcome.

for_honor_crop

For Honor enjoyed a decent launch week in the UK charts when it released at the end of February, but things have started to go down hill rather swiftly, with p2p connectivity issues, cheaters running rampant, and people playing silly buggers with AFK farming.

Just two weeks after release, the game lost 50% of its player base on Steam. Things are not looking peachy in the land of samurais, vikings, and knights.

And now they’re looking even worse, as some number-crunching has been going on over on Reddit, with user bystander007 totting up just how much it would cost in microtransactions to unlock all of the bells and whistles for the 12 heroes, and the heroes themselves – not counting any DLC.

“Ubisoft is notorious for their deceptively expensive multiplayer games as anyone who has played any of their recent Tom Clancy games could tell you. I personally have just suppressed the Completionist within me and stopped bothering to grind for unlocks. Once you do the math, you’ll agree.”

According to bystander007, is costs around 91,500 steel (the in-game currency) to unlock each character and all of their customisations in the base game. For all 12, we’re looking at 1,098,000 steel, which equates to approximately 7.32 of the $100 steel packs.

“So Ubisoft has valued their in-game unlocks within the base game at a $732 over-charge of the original $60-100 spent on the game.”

If you’re thinking about not dropping any money on the steel packs because you’re happy to earn them through playing the game, bystander007 has some bad news for you.

“Casual players who play 1-2 hours 5-7 days a week will never reach this goal. Completing Orders/half-Contracts will get you roughly 1000 Steel, another roughly 200 for the matches you played. So 1200 a day is a good estimated gain for casual players. That’s 915 days. Roughly 2.51 years.”

While the rate of earning steel varies depending on how much time you’re sinking in to the game, the post points out that even the most hardcore players willing to grind the hell out of it are looking at a year.

“To everyone…who comments ‘Do you really need all unlocks?’ My answer is a big fat resounding…YES. [Because I paid] for them. It’s base game content in a full price game I paid for. I should be able to get every single unlock I conceivably want to unlock. And it shouldn’t take me 2 years to [do it]…”

If the math is sound, then bystander007 has a point. Microtransactions can be a quick way to unlock things for those people that don’t have as much time to play as others, letting them catch up without sinking hours of their time into the game, but conversely, you should be able to unlock content in the base game within a reasonable amount of time if you don’t want to spend any extra cash.

What are your thoughts on all of this? Has Ubisoft crossed the line with this? Do you think players shouldn’t get worked up about having to spend either money or an exorbitant amount of time to unlock base game content? Chime in below.

Firestorm gives Catwoman, Green Arrow and Green Lantern a beating in latest Injustice 2 trailer

16 Mar

Here’s a new Injustice 2 video showing off the latest addition to the roster, Firestorm, who was announced earlier this week.

In the Injustice 2 trailer, you’re given a look at Firestorm in action as he beats the hell out of Catwoman (with help from Swamp Thing) and Green Lantern. Green Arrow doesn’t fare any better.

It was announced earlier today the game will make use of real-money currency called Source Crystals, which won’t impact progression.

These are used for skins and can also be used to level a character to 20, but only if another has already reached level 20.

Injustice 2 will be released for PS4 and Xbox One May 16.

Injustice 2 reveals Source Crystals, a real money currency that lets you change the look of characters, power level

16 Mar

Injustice 2 has a new currency called Source Crystals you can buy with real-world money.

injustice_2_shaders_demo_harley_1

NetherRealm has announced a new type of in-game currency for Injustice 2 that it says can only be spent on cosmetic features.

It’s called Source Crystals and it can only be purchased with real money. Source Crystals can be spent on three main items: Premiere Skins, shaders for existing skins, and on the Transform Gear feature.

Premiere Skins are new models for existing characters that completely change their looks and voice, similar to the ones you get in the game’s
deluxe and ultimate editions
. These do not have any gameplay advantages.

Shaders are colour variations you can apply to your existing gear, like what you see in Harley Quinn’s costume above. Transform Gear allows you to change the look of one piece of gear into another, and keep the stats – commonly known as transmogrification in other games.

“We value our community and want to be clear – you cannot “pay to win” with Injustice 2,” the studio noted in the announcement.

Although NetherRealm says Source Crystals won’t impact progression, one particular way you could use them is billed as allowing you to “save time.” If you rank up at least one character to level 20, you can use Source Crystals to level up other characters to the same level.

“This is optional and won’t affect gameplay or game progression,” the developer notes. Source Crystals will be available on the Xbox and PlayStation stores at launch.

Injustice 2 is out May 16 on PS4, and Xbox One.

Tekken 7 PS4 gameplay shows Akuma dishing out beat downs in rain, snow, and shine

13 Mar

Akuma takes on Katarina and Lili in new Tekken 7 gameplay on PS4.

Tekken 7 is still a fair few months away, but we’ve got some PS4 gameplay for you to have a gander at courtesy of Game Clips and Tips on YouTube.

The snippet is only a few minutes long, but shows Akuma taking on Katarina, followed by Lili, and he triumphs, trouncing both of them.

PS4 players who pick up the game will get exclusive legacy costumes from Tekken 2 and Tekken 4 characters King, Xiaoyu, and Jin.

A PS4 exclusive Jukebox mode is also going to be a thing, letting you listen to classic music from the series. You’ll even be able to make your own playlists to run in the background as you play.

Tekken 7 is due for release on June 2 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

You can grab No Man’s Sky for the low price of £14 through the PS Plus Double Discount sale

9 Mar

PlayStation Plus subscribers in Europe can take advantage of double discounts on the PlayStation Store for the next couple of weeks. See a game on sale you like? Then add it to your cart and enjoy the savings.

the_witcher_3

Take The Witcher 3 for example: it is currently on sale for £19.99 with an extra 20% off if you are a PS Plus member. But, since double discounts are in play, Plus members will see an extra 20% taken off when the game is added to the cart – making it an extra 40% off in total. So, you’re getting one of the best games ever (in my opinion) for a super cheap £11.99.

And, if you want to finally give No Man’s Sky a go, especially now the Path Finder update is live with planetary vehicles, base sharing, and PS4 Pro support, Plus members can get for £13.99.

The Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare Digital Deluxe edition which comes with Modern Warfare is 36% off with doubel discount. So, instead of paying the current sale price of £77.89, as a Plus member you will pay £49.85.

Injustice 2 gameplay video shows Doctor Fate smacking Superman, Cyborg and Atrocitus around

2 Mar

Seems like every Injustice 2 character loves to pound their fists into the Man of Steel, and Doctor Fate is no exception.

Granted, he also beats up on Cyborg and Red Lantern Atrocitus, but in the Injustice 2 video, Superman is his favorite whipping boy.

Announced today, Doctor Fate is the latest addition to the roster, and the sorcerer looks to be a rather formidable opponent, thanks to the powers he inherited via his amulet, cloak and helmet from Nabu, the ancient immortal hailing from the planet Cilia.

Like all comic book characters, Doctor Fate’s history is a bit convoluted, so if you want to know more about him the DC Database wiki has you covered.

The increasingly curious Ultra Street Fighter 2 will let you alter each fighter’s colours when it hits the Switch this year.

Image credit for the screen above goes to Gamer, a Japanese website that seems to have the exclusive look at several different palette-swap choices you’ll be offered in the latest iteration of Street Fighter 2.

As far as gimmicks go it’s a neat one, although we’re more excited about how bafflingly terrible the first-person mode looks.

According to some translations made by Perfectly Nintendo, you’ll be able to save ten different variations for each character and use them online. The cart for Ultra Street Fighter 2 will also contain over 1400 pieces of artwork to browse.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is a Switch exclusive. A release date has not been nailed down.

Street Fighter 5 Character Introduction series shines the spotlight on newcomer Kolin

20 Feb

Here’s a sneak peek at some of Kolin’s moves before she makes her Street Fighter 5 debut next week.

Street Fighter 5‘s Kolin was revealed a couple of weeks ago and you can find out more about her in Capcom’s character introduction video.

Community manager Matt Edwards talks us through her history in the series, her V-Skill and V-Trigger, as well as telling us how and why to play Kolin. If you like mind games, she’s the girl for you.

Season 2 will see Street Fighter 5’s roster grow with the addition of six new characters, bringing the total to 28.

Kolin is making her debut on February 28, 2017.

Players are already being super creative with their For Honor emblem ideas

16 Feb

As always, the ingenuity of fans let loose on a creation system is something to behold.

A lot of competitive multiplayer games these days feature some sort of emblem or logo creator – and usually that logo shows up somewhere on your character, usually on a shoulder pad or something like that. As a result they’re usually quite small, but given the medieval theme off For Honor emblems are a very real, universe-appropriate thing.

Players have already been going nuts with the emblem creator, and some of the emblem ideas they’ve had are pretty impressive. We figured it’d be worth pulling a couple of our favourites, though there’s now an entire reddit dedicated to For Honor emblems.

First up, I want to note it’s not all references. I’m about to drop a ton of nerdy, referential emblem designs below, but there are a ton of really impressive all-original ones around such as these incredible dragon and phoenix designs:

With that incredible work nodded to, let’s now note that somebody made a whole lot of emoji. There’s your usual heart-eyed faces and sobbing faces and the like, but the gallery also features a pretty damn good poop emoji emblem. As you do.

If you fancy being the very best

Or being a Vanguard from a world very different to For Honor’s…

One hopes you don’t die as much in For Honor as in Dark Souls, else your team would be pretty mad

And no matter your comic book allegiance, both Marvel and DC are already well represented:

Also, here’s a Wu Tang emblem. Yeah. This game is alright.

Anyway, the point is – fans are already making amazing stuff, and many of these links have tutorials – and even those who don’t, hey, they’re free emblem ideas for your brain, like. There’s loads more over on the reddit. It’s certainly made me want to give For Honor’s emblem creator a little more love.

Ultra Street Fighter 2’s Nintendo Switch first-person mode looks worse than you think

16 Feb

Different people have different ideas of fun, of course, but this will hardly sell anyone on the Switch.

Earlier this week, it was revealed that Ultra Street Fighter 2, the Nintendo Switch exclusive, is going to include a first-person mode that uses the console’s Joy-Cons.

It’s called the Way of the Hado, and it was shown off by Capcom Japan in a livestream earlier. Around the 2h 56m mark, a Capcom developer attaches two Joy-Cons to his hands, and begins to do motions that result in throwing fireballs, Hadoukens, and Dragon Punches.

The only problem is, it never looked smooth, and outside of the relatively simple input requirements you have for each move, the mode looks like an afterthought. There’s considerable lag, too, though this could be improved by release.

Overall, it looks very similar to the bonus modes you’d find in Wii ports of games, and in other Wii shovelware in general.

Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers is out sometime this year for the Nintendo Switch.

Injustice 2 mobile soft launch produces gameplay trailer featuring Cyborg and Scarecrow

15 Feb

NetherRealm Studios said during Comic Con last year a mobile version of Injustice 2 would be released. Well, it has – but only in the Philippines.

It’s a soft launch, so expect to hear more on its release closer to Injustice 2 hitting shelves for PS4 and Xbox One.

Thanks to a gameplay video from All Star Production though, we can get a look at the iOS and Android title a bit early.

As noticed by Event Hubs, the video not only shows gameplay, but two characters which have yet to be announced for the console version: Cyborg and Scarecrow.

Earlier this week we were given a look at Cheetah, Catwoman and Poison Ivy, and the Injustice website notes the next character reveal will take place on February 23, so it’s possible both Cyborg and Scarecrow, or one of the two, will be announced. Or it could be someone else entirely.

A western release date hasn’t been announced for Injustice 2 on mobile and tablet, but the core game is out on PS4 and Xbox One May 16.
