Everything You Need to Know About Shadow of the Tomb Raider

Everything You Need to Know About Shadow of the Tomb Raider

The third installment of the rebooted Tomb Raider series will be released this September. From the trailers and extended gameplay videos, Shadow of the Tomb Raider looks every bit as good as Tomb Raider and Rise of the Tomb Raider. As with each new installment, there will be some changes that will take the game to the next level. Here is everything we know about Shadow of the Tomb Raider.

The biggest change is how players can now customize the difficulty levels to suit their play style. In the previous two titles, the difficulty settings covered every aspect of the game. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider players will have the option to change the difficulty settings for combat, puzzles, and environment traversal. This will allow players who prefer the fighting aspect of the game to have the combat setting on hard and the puzzles on an easier difficulty. The game can now be tailored to a player’s preference.

Lara Evolves and Gamers Benefit

As with Rise of the Tomb Raider, Lara has evolved to become much better at taking down her enemies. IGN reports that Lara can now cover herself in mud to enhance her stealth mode. She will also have a wider range of weapon upgrades. One exciting addition includes the fear arrow, which causes enemies to attack each other.

The map is also much bigger than before. The immense vertical spaces will offer plenty of opportunities for Lara to rappel, swing, wall walk, and use her rope and climbing axes. Swimming and underwater exploration will also be featured more prominently in the new game, as there is a plant that Lara can consume to extend her the amount of time she can hold her breath. There will be many more side quests and stories that reveal hidden tombs, artifacts, crypts, and other interesting locations and items.

The story will continue on from Rise of the Tomb Raider as Lara fights the evil Trinity. This time she will face them in Latin America and among Mayan ruins. In Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Lara will not only be saving the world from Trinity, but also fixing her own actions after she sets off the Mayan apocalypse.

No End in Sight for Tomb Raider

With the Tomb Raider franchise continuing to be successful more than 20 years after it was first released is a testament to the how ingrained the character has become in pop culture. We reported that this year the original 1996 Tomb Raider was inducted into the Video Game Hall of Fame. Shadow of the Tomb Raider is just the latest in the media empire that is the Tomb Raider franchise – one that’s been conquering multiple gaming and entertainment platforms for years.

Lara Croft continues to find new fans with the character being featured in games outside of the traditional adventure platform titles. Leading gaming platform Slingo has several titles adapted from popular video games, including the slot game Lara Croft Tomb Raider. While the game may lack the open world adventure of the new series, it features all the elements that have made Tomb Raider popular across the globe: Lara Croft, exotic locations, and ancient puzzles.

Outside of the gaming industry, the franchise has also continued to thrive. This year, a film adapted from the 2013 game was released starring Alicia Vikander. In 2018, Lara Croft and the Tomb Raider franchise has never been stronger.

It has been a three year wait for fans of Tomb Raider, and soon they will be able to once again experience a new adventure. From the violent opening that was shown off at gaming conventions, it looks like Shadow of the Tomb Raider will take the series further forward, and be another instant classic worthy of the franchise.

Halo Infinite Adds Co-Developer Skybox Labs

Halo Infinite Adds Co-Developer Skybox Labs

Halo Infinite will be a joint development project from 343 Industries and Skybox Labs. The Vancouver based game studio has a long history of working with 343 Industries. They were the development team behind Halo 5 Forge Mode on Windows 10 and added the Xbox One X enhancements to the title. Although, this time around it sounds like their work on Halo Infinite will be much more substantial.

Skybox and 343 Going All In

In a press release, Skybox said that it will work together with 343 on “features across the game including AI, gameplay, networking, and cutting-edge graphics features.” (https://bit.ly/2LpycWh)

Halo FPS studio head, Chris Lee, mentioned in a statement that he believed Skybox is already doing great work on Halo Infinite. Meanwhile, Skybox’s co-founder Steven Silvester said that their studio is energized by Halo’s new art direction and engine which is being called, SlipSpace.

Skybox also clarified in their statement that most of their 100-plus developers are currently working on Halo Infinite’s development. The studio has been growing over the past couple of years and that hasn’t stopped the team looking for talented game developers with experience in a number of different disciplines.

“Jim, You Said You Remembered Where We Parked”

Halo Infinite was announced at E3 2018 during Microsoft’s press conference with a flashy trailer intended to show off the SlipsSpace Engine, but 343 has yet to reveal actual gameplay or story details. Although, the world does know for sure that the game’s new direction is meant to be a nod to the original Halo. Microsoft has said that Halo Infinite is bringing the franchise back to its roots with an entry that is bigger and bolder than any previous game in the series.

However, one undeniable benefit of this model is that the games people love continue to evolve and that seems to have gamers excited.

Celebrating 40 years of Space Invaders with Gigamax

Disclaimer: Gigamax Games has no relationship with Taito’s Space Invaders.

Taito’s Space Invaders, the classic arcade game just celebrated its 40th birthday. Releasing in 1978, it influenced countless games and the gaming industry in general since its inception. This was the first game that created its very own world rather than simulating an environment from the real world. It also introduced the concept of a high score and multiple lives.

Celebrating 40 Years of Space Invaders

Space Invaders quickly became the most popular game in arcades worldwide after its global release. 40 years later, it’s hard to find a gamer that hasn’t played or at least heard of the game. A staple of arcade gaming, any fan of this classic title might want to take a trip to Japan to celebrate.

space invaders, space invaders gigamax, gigamax, gigamax games, video games, video game news, space invader 40 years, gaming news, gaming industry, video game industry, video game industry news, retro games

The publisher is celebrating this momentous occasion in an over the top way. Hosting a limited time event in Japan, Taito created a massive version of the game where up to ten players can work together to fend off the alien threat. Named, Prepare…for Space Invaders Gigamax!, this celebration caught the attention of Gigamax Games for a couple of reasons.

Bigger, Brighter, Gigamax

Huge fans of the game, the Gigamax Games crew was shocked to hear this limited time event was actually named, “Prepare… for Space Invaders Gigamax”. If anyone forgot, the name of this website is GigamaxGames.com.

The event is a limited edition attraction, located southwest of Tokyo at the Laguna Ten Bosch resort in Gamagori, Japan. Each game costs players around $4.50 USD or 500 yen. The massive display will only be available to try through July so if anyone wants to give it a try, the time to book a trip to Japan is now. It is uncertain what the future holds for Space Invaders Gigamax but with any luck, this celebration won’t be the last time gamers see Gigamax on the big screen.

For more information on this special event, an official website is available in Japanese. Google Translate will help but doesn’t translate the pictures.

Attack on Titan 2 – Let’s Play Page

Attack on Titan 2 – Let’s Play Page with Gigamax Games

The world of Attack on Titan is chaotic at best. Filled with beasts, death, and sorrow, there’s no avoiding the incredible action that comes along with the story. Now, gamers have a chance to give their all against the Titans once again in Attack on Titan 2. Available on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita, and PC.

Gigs and Mack take a swing at surviving this universe where death seems all too common. Take a look at the gameplay below for a look inside Attack on Titan 2 on the PlayStation 4.

 Attack on Titan 2 – YouTube Playlist on Gigamax Games

Overall the game’s combat mechanic is what really makes it shine. An RPG at heart, the story progresses slowly at first but is meant to build the tension the series is known for. Its graphics aren’t anything spectacular and the small hub city in which the game is centered doesn’t really add that much excitement or wonder. Attack on Titan 2 shines when Titans are attacking and gamers swing across the landscape with their maneuver gear, taking down whatever threat is in their path.

attack on titan 2, attack on titan game, attack on titan 2 gameplay, attack on titan 2 youtube, gigamax, gigamax games, gigamax let's plays, let's plays, attack on titan 2 lets play

Titans come in all shapes and sizes and that is still true in Attack on Titan 2. Their unpredictable movements and almost comical appearance are all in-line when compared to the anime. However, the Titans are much less willing to kill people outright and this gives the gamer a chance to play around with their Titan killing abilities rather than frantically trying to down every Titan as quickly as possible.

The game itself isn’t anything mind-blowing but the combat is truly spectacular. Attack on Titan fans might want to give it a try but if anyone is on the fence, take a look at the gameplay above before making the purchase.

Thank You For Watching!

Thank you all so much for taking the time to stop by. It means the world to everyone here at Gigamax Games. If you want to see more Attack on Titan 2, leave a comment below or on the video!

Pokemon Go Gets Some New Legendary Pokemon

Pokemon Go Gets Some New Legendary Pokemon

A brand new Legendary pocket monster has made its way to Pokemon Go. Regice, the ice version of the three legendary titans from the third generation of Pokemon games, can now be found at gyms around the world in the form of a raid battle. This beast will be available until July 19th where it will then most likely be replaced by the other two Legendaries.

As usual, dedicated players will have to team up with other trainers and take on Regice before they get a chance to capture it. It is important to remember when going into the battle that ice-type Pokemon are weak against fire, rock, steel, and fighting types. Although, despite the monsters many weaknesses it has a particularly high defense stat, adding to the formidability of the latest Legendary opponent.

Two More Legendary Titans

The other two Legendary Titans, Regirock and Registeel, are expected to appear on Pokemon Go soon. Niantic has yet to confirm when fans can face the next two beasts but they’ll follow the introduction of Regice late this summer.

Regice arrives on the heels of Pokemon Go’s latest in-game event, the Water Festival. Part of this event included trainers having the chance to catch another generation 3 Legendary, Kyogre, which returned to raid battles for a limited time. While Kyogre may no longer be available, trainers still have the opportunity to complete the latest set of Field Research Quests, which will lead to another chance to take on the Legendary bird Articuno.

Alongside the recently announced Legendaries, Niantic began rolling out the recently announced friends and trading features for Pokemon Go. Although, as of now, only players that have reached between levels 33 and 40 are able to take advantage of the long-awaited features. Niantic claims that these systems will eventually make their way to other players, but hasn’t given a specific timeframe.

Pokemon Go continues to evolve and the Gigamax Games crew will continue watching out the mobile game progresses. Stop by again soon to keep up with the latest video game news and announcements.

Surviving Mars Review – For Love of the Game

Review by, William Griston, For Love of the Game – Gigamax Games Contributor

Surviving Mars was created by the Bulgarian Haemimont Games and published by Paradox Interactive from Sweden. It was released on Windows, OS X, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 15, 2018. The game follows in the footsteps of Cities: Skylines (Another Paradox game) and SimCity (Maxis).

Not quite what I was expecting

After spending almost a hundred hours on the indie company Magruda Works’ Planetbase, another game that’s eerily similar to what Haemimont and Paradox have offered with Surviving Mars, to say I was excited for the game would be an understatement. I pre-ordered Surviving Mars, I never pre-order games anymore. I have been burned one too many times, this game was not any different. While Surviving Mars had originally piqued my interest because the game looked like it was Planetbase++, that is, Planetbase with more substance.

What I got was a flashy game with very little substance. Which honestly should not have surprised me considering that it was published by Paradox, the kings of DLC. Paradox has a habit of releasing half-assed games and then making them better over time with DLC (See: Hearts of Iron IV, Crusader Kings II). Don’t get me wrong, I like Paradox games (I’ve played the shit out of both Hearts of Iron IV and Stellaris, as well as dabbling with the extremely complicated Crusader Kings II), I just I don’t like their business model.

Various Shades of Boring, with a side of Ho-Hum

Gameplay wise, you will spend a few hours collecting materials and then building windmills and solar panels so you can generate air and water and drop your first dome. After that, you call in your first batch of colonists which aren’t enough to staff all of your structures. Later on, when the games design to allows you to recruit more colonists it will automatically assign people to the jobs, but they are not assigned correctly. It assigns Engineers to the Farms, and Botanists to the hospital, and so on. This leads to a lot of tedious micromanagement with you attempting to track down individual colonists and telling them what building to work on.

For some inexplicable reason, the colonists sometimes ignore those commands and go back to the job they were working before, even though you’ve eliminated that shift which leads to even more tedious micromanagement. There honestly isn’t a lot to Surviving Mars. It’s basically SimCity/Cities: Skylines on Mars with a stricter ruleset. Graphically, the game isn’t really all that spectacular, either. Granted, the setting is Mars, which means that the terrain is various shades of red and brown.

Hot Garbage

In the end, I would honestly pick up Planetbase instead it is half the price of Surviving Mars. Even with the wonky AI in Planetbase, I had more fun within the first 3 hours than I did with the eight I put into Surviving Marts. I hate to trash on a game, but, Surviving Mars was a disappointment.

Fallout 76: Taking Inventory of Vault 76

Fallout 76: Taking Inventory of Vault 76

Fallout fans all over the world were ecstatic to find out about Fallout 76, Bethesda’s upcoming online survival RPG. Taking a step away from their traditional single-player role-playing games they’re so well known for, Fallout 76 is going to be something entirely different. The renowned developer did mention that there will be more information at E3 2018. E3 is taking place on June 12th but this is what the world knows about the mysterious new Fallout game so far.

Fallout 76 Official Teaser Trailer

What We Know

Fallout 76 is expected to release on PC, PS4, and Xbox One. According to PCGamer, Amazon’s pre-order page leaked a possible release date, July 31st of this year. As of now, this still remains unconfirmed and Amazon’s current page lists the release date as December 31st, 2019. 

fallout 76, fallout, fallout 76 news, fallout 76 leaks, fallout 76 e3, new fallout, gigamax, gigamax games, video game news, gaming news, e3 2018, e3

Kotaku reported last Wednesday (5/30/18), a day after the official announcement was first made, that Fallout 76 will be a completely experimental new entry to the Fallout series. It is hinted that the new Fallout will have quests and a story, just like every other Bethesda Game Studios creation that came before. Base-building, similar to the mechanic that Fallout 4 uses, will also be included.

Players will take the part as a Vault Dweller in the new title. Emerging from Vault 76, the world will be much different than any of the previous games. The new game was named after lore that was mentioned in both Fallout 3 and Fallout 4, Vault 76. This vault was intended to be opened only 20 years after the nuclear war, which could lead to a much less “civilized” setting.

What’s Next?

There aren’t many more details floating around about Fallout 76. The good news for gamers is that Bethesda has plans to open up the curtain at E3 2018, which is only a few days away. With the incredible reception the announcement received, there’s no doubt that Bethesda will command a considerable amount of airtime.

Capcom Announces Mega Man 11 and amiibo

Capcom Announces Mega Man 11 and amiibo

Mega Man fans will be excited to hear Mega Man 11 will be released on October 2nd, 2018. Capcom made the announcement on Tuesday, 5/29/18 that their new game will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC. Mega Man 11 will be the first Mega Man the world has seen since Capcom released Mega Man 10 back in 2010.

The impending release of Mega Man 11 wasn’t the only thing for gamers to get excited about. Capcom revealed to Japan a brand-new Mega Man amiibo. It will be included with the Collector’s Package in Japan but Western gamers will need to pick up Mega Man 11 amiibo Edition. The Western version also includes 4 stickers, a Dr. Wily logo patch, a “stage select” microfiber cloth, the game, and the amiibo.

Celebrating 30 Years of Mega Man

Gamers have been enjoying this classic character for 30 years and the developer is making it clear they’re not done yet. In the gameplay above, it’s obvious Capcom made some amazing improvements to this classic world. The easiest change to spot was their move away from the 8-bit art style. Mega Man and the enemies are much more “life-like” in this latest game. The new 3D graphics are stunning but the game still maintains the classic feel of the franchise. Mega Man 11 will feature, what seems to be, high-quality voice acting as well.

Capcom isn’t just improving the look of their game, they’re adding some new systems as well. The trailer shows off the Double Gear system where players can use new abilities to slow time or make Mega Man stronger. However, there is a limit to the Double Gear system. Using it will cause the overheat bar to rise and if it reaches the top, players will have to wait before using Double Gear again.

Keep Your Eyes Open!

The Gigamax crew are big fans of the Mega Man series and will be keeping a close eye on any future announcements about the new release. For a little look at the previous Mega Man Capcom released in 2010, come take a look at playlist below.
