After performing just over three hours of maintenence on the DOOM multiplayer servers in anticipation for the game’s second major update, Bethesda and id Software have released the second update for DOOM simultaneously on all of its available platforms. The new update brings in some bug fixes alongside a lot of new multiplayer content including new multiplayer game modes.

To celebrate the release of the new update, Bethesda is hosting a Double XP weekend starting now. That’s right, anyone playing DOOM multiplayer will earn twice the amount of XP they would normally get for each match. This should make it faster for those trying to get the Rank 5 achievement/trophy this weekend.

DOOM Update 2 must be downloaded before you can resume online play.  Depending on your platform and if you already had the previous game patch installed, Update 2 can weigh in at around 12-13GB.

DOOM is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Final Day For Windows 7 and Windows 8 Users to Upgrade to Windows 10 For Free July 29, 2016

If you’re using a Windows 7 or Windows 8 equipped computer  (either purchased at retail or bundled with your new PC) today is your final day to upgrade that computer to Windows 10 completely free of charge.

Windows 10 brought a lot of new features to the PC including native integration with Xbox Live, a new version of DirectX, an improved Windows Store, native support for new hardware, and a lot more.  It’s also required to play recent games including Remedy’s Quantum Break.

If you have been holding off upgrading your system until the last possible minute, today is that final minute.  You can currently upgrade to Windows 10 either through Windows Update or by downloading the Media Creation Tool.

In the highly unlikely event you are asked for a CD-Key, the Windows 10 installer will accept your Windows 7 or Windows 8 Key until the deadline ends. However, as long as you use it before the deadline passes you will be able to reuse it if you ever need to reinstall Windows 10.

Just wanted to give players a friendly reminder. The second free update for DOOM is getting released later today on all of the game’s platforms. In anticipation for this update, publisher Bethesda has announced they will be bringing the game’s multiplayer servers down from 12PM-3PM Eastern Time.

During the game’s scheduled downtime it is highly unlikely that players will be able to access the game’s multiplayer features, but this will only be temporary. We will keep you posted on when the servers go back up.

DOOM is out now on PC, Xbox One and PS4.

Pokemon Go Plus Delayed July 27, 2016

Pokémon Go has revolutionized what could be done in a SmartPhone title. It has taken all of the platform’s strengths and used them to create a great game anyone can play. Since its release, it has become the most popular application on SmartPhones…an incredible feat given the wide array of applications out there.

When Pokémon Go was first revealed, the game’s developers also announced they app could be used in conjunction with the Pokémon Go Plus accessory, a Bluetooth enabled device that could help players catch Pokémon and in-game items in Pokémon Go without having to keep the application running.

It is my sad duty to inform all of you that the Pokémon Go Plus accessory, originally announced for release at the end of July, has been delayed until September.

The third trailer for the CG animated feature film KINGSGLAIVE Final Fantasy XV was released during San Diego Comic Con 2016 and it is without a doubt the best looking computer generated images I have ever seen.

Along with this trailer we now know the film’s official release schedule.  KINGSGLAIVE Final Fantasy XV is coming to theatres August 19th, 2016 for a very limited run.  It will then release on digital platforms starting August 30th, 2016. The movie is going to be bundled on Blu-Ray Disc with both the PS4 and Xbox One  Final Fantasy XV Collector’s Editions on September 30th, 2016.

For those of you unable to get a Collector’s Edition of Final Fantasy XV, KINGSGLAIVE Final Fantasy XV will get two seperate releases on Blu-Ray Disc, one of which will be bundled with BROTHERHOOD: Final Fantasy XV on October 4th, 2016.

If you’re like me and you enjoyed the original Halo Wars you were probably bummed out when the studio who made it was closed down by Microsoft. I had little hope that I would ever see what happened to the crew of the ship we helped command, it turns out my hope was not misplaced because Halo Wars 2 is coming early next year.

Now, straight from San Diego Comic Con 2016,  we have our first look at what happened to the crew of The Spirit of Fire, and what’s in store for players this time around. Enjoy.

Halo Wars 2 is coming February 2017 to Xbox One and Windows 10.
