PlayStation 4 Pro & Xbox One X: One Big Happy Family 

Much like the PlayStation 4 Pro every game that receives optimizations on the Xbox One X will do so for free. Some of these enhancements include 4K resolution (Checkerboard or Native), anisotropic filtering, HDR, and high resolution textures. Although all of these updates are a possibility, it is still up to the developers on how they choose to upgrade their game.

Pre Orders for the Xbox One X are already available for the Scorpio Edition, which is a special edition of the system that will only be available in limited quantities.

Currently, the list of games being enhanced is more than 100 games strong and it will only grow as gamers embrace the new system.

This is where the relatively new insect glaive goes to work on one of the most iconic boss variations from the Monster Hunter series. Those familiar with the franchise will instantly recognize the classic dinosaur but might not have had the chance to play with this weapon. Unfortunately, Gigs and Mack have no idea which stance they’re using as all the text is still in Japanese. Well, not all of it, which they found incredibly confusing.

New Hellblade Patch Fixes Tons of Bugs

New Hellblade Patch Fixes Tons of Bugs

It has been a little over a week since Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice was released and the developers are already patching a variety of bugs that have been plaguing players. While the independently developed game was praised as one of the best games to come out this year, it certainly had its issues. That’s why the developer, Ninja Theory, rushed to get this patch out detailed here on their blog.

Hellblade

There were bugs that would break the game or stop character progression entirely and these were the first to be addressed. They also fix a variety of collision issues that would send the player out of the game world and make it impossible to proceed. PC players will also be happy to hear that an issue involving the menu not loading has been patched.

There’s No Stopping Ninja Theory

Ninja Theory doesn’t plan on stopping either. The blog post also detailed that they’re still hard at work looking into bug reports so expect more updates in the near future. One patch, in particular, is the performance issues that PC players with AMD GPUs have experienced.

Below we have a full list of the patch notes that you can also find on Ninja Theory’s blog. While releasing broken games should never be acceptable, it’s hard for a small development team to take care of all the issues right at launch, sometimes it takes time for the community to find the problems and aid in pointing out where they are. Hellblade was an excellent game that should be in every gamers library especially after the patch. Gigamax managed to beat the game while only encountering one game breaking bug. If you’ve had issues make sure you report it to support@hellblade.com.

-Fixed an issue where the Baldr Masks in the Tower Shard level are white on the inside.
-Fixed scenarios resulting in unlit geometry after reloading from checkpoint.
-Fixed a potential progression stopping bug in the Fenrir Cave by the ‘M’ rune door puzzle.
-Fixed potential progression stopping bug in Fenrir Cave due to check pointing after skipping a lit region.
-Fixed potential progression stopping bug in Fenrir Cave if player fails to collect floor rune after combat and subsequently dies.
-Fixed collision issues that could allow players to unintentionally exit the game world.
-Fixed audio cut-out issues.
-Added audio cues for hidden faces.
-Fixed audio hard cut at the end of various cut scenes.
-Fixes for audio lip sync issues.
-Audio balancing fixes.
-Various subtitle localisation fixes across a number of languages.

Keep Guard Enemy

-Fixed a potential crash bug if Keep Guard enemies are standing close together and one of them dies.
-Tweaked rotation rate during certain attack windups.
-Fixed missing sound effects on certain attacks.

Surtr

-Fixed an issue where Surtr was able to throw Senua outside of the arena.

-Fixed an issue where Valravn could not be damaged while in Focus for certain combos.

Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice Gameplay & Playlist

Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice Gameplay & Playlist

Mack and Gigs entered the very bizarre world of Hellblade Senua’s Sacrifice in a recent Youtube live stream and it was a strange and exciting journey. Starting on a mysterious boat ride that was like “It’s a Small World” but with corpses and ending with a confusing maze of portals and glyphs. This game is a fever dream that wants the player to unlock the mysteries held inside. Ultimately, the experience with this new indie game was amazing.

Definitely, don’t miss the crew trying to solve puzzles that almost figure themselves out while swinging violently at enemies that are basically tutorials. Luckily they managed to get through the experience without dying (apparently this game has strict punishments for that). The game seems to focus on the story and mental anguish the heroine is going through, but she’s still a badass that makes us wonder why we haven’t taken up the claymore yet.

Yooka Laylee Spit N’ Polish Update Out Now

Earlier this year the developers behind Yooka Laylee, Playtonic Games, launched an update for the PC version titled “Spit N’ Polish.” This update fixed many peoples issues with the platformer that was inspired by the glory days of Banjo-Kazooie and as of yesterday, the patch has been added to the PS4 and Xbox One editions of the game.

One of the many changes that the indie developer made was a new optional camera that gives the player way more control over where they can position the once fidgety system. This seemed to be one of the main concerns of the Spit N’ Polish update as many reviewers considered the camera to be a major downside to the experience.

In addition to the new camera, the game also makes adjustments to the game’s flying and first person aim controls, the ability to skip cutscenes and dialogue, an option to shorten the iconic “gibberish” voice acting, and tons more that Playtonic detailed on their Spit N’ Polish blog post.

Some of the bigger changes include:

  • Pagies have added signposts to Hivory Towers to help guide players to new worlds
  • Design tweaks to all arcade games
  • Improved speed when scrolling through Totals Menu
  • New moves section added to pause menu, with image guide
  • Restart option added in the pause menu during arcade games and Kartos challenges
  • “Sonar-able” objects now have clearer visual identity
  • Laser move no longer requires player to crouch
  • Improved Transformation controls
  • Minecart control and hitbox improvements
  • Improved Rampo boss fight
  • Performance improvements

Playtonic is still hard at work on the Nintendo Switch version,  set to replace the canceled Wii U version of Yooka Laylee. No release date has been set for their return to Nintendo but Playtonic tweeted a picture of the game running on the new console so hopefully, we’ll see it soon. The developer also detailed that the Switch version would come with the Spit N’ Polish update already implemented.

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT: New Final Fantasy Fighter

Dissidia Final Fantasy NT: New Final Fantasy Fighter

Square Enix offered some additional information about the closed beta for their upcoming Final Fantasy fighting game, Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. Last month the company announced they will be holding a closed beta but now gamers have an idea when they can play. Between August 25th and September 3rd, select players will have the chance to give this arcade fighter a try.

Superbiiz - PC Hardware E-Tailer

Registration is now live and gamers have until August 20th to sign up for their chance to try out Dissidia Final Fantasy NT. North and Latin American players can sign up here and other regions can visit this site to register. Unfortunately be prepared for bad news, as with any closed-beta acceptance is going to be limited.

This game looks like it’s going to be an epic adventure. Come take a look at some Dissidia Final Fantasy NT below.

It isn’t the first time Square Enix released a Final Fantasy fighter. For the 20th anniversary in 2008, they released a similar fighting game for PlayStation Portable, Dissidia Final Fantasy. The North American version released back in 2009. This latest title should be an exciting revisit, with new characters and the incredible power of the modern console. Dissidia Final Fantasy NT will be exclusive to the PlayStation 4 with an expected release in 2018.

Get Your Final Fantasy Fix Today

For those not lucky enough to be chosen for the closed-beta, they’ll have to survive on gameplay footage from the lucky few until its release or an open-beta. However, Gigamax Games does have some Final Fantasy video’s to get you through the year. Be sure to keep checking back for new episodes and the latest gameplay.
