New Crash Bandicoot Rumor and Gamers Heads Spin

New Crash Bandicoot Rumor and Gamers Heads Spin

Activision is rumored to be working on a brand new Crash Bandicoot game. With the incredible success of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, selling over 2 million copies, it would be a good move for the company and for gamers. The rumor broke after people spotted the ‘Spring 2018 issue of Licensing Source Book Europe’. This game may have been a breakout hit but there is still no confirmed reports by Activision on if they will be delivering a new Crash Bandicoot game in 2019. There is, however, a lot of evidence pointing to it being a reality.

Max Arguile, a manager of the merchandising company GB Eye reportedly shared some information he may not have had permission to disclose. “The new game was a huge success at retail with no marketing spend. Next year it will be going broader (Switch and PC) and there will be another game in 2019,” he said. “Activision has a five-year plan for this and GB Eye is delighted to be fully on board for all products.” http://bit.ly/2E5ZRrM

It would make sense for Activision to ride the Crash wave as long as possible. This PlayStation exclusive took the spot for the top-selling remastered collection in Sony’s recent history. With the rumors causing so much excitement and the previous success of the remastered collection, it looks like Activision would be able to drop a successful new Crash Bandicoot game tomorrow without spending a dime on marketing once again. 

The Rumor Mill Keeps On Spinning

The rumors don’t stop at just a 2019 release. Those precarious parentheses in the alleged quote recorded by IGN did hold the names of two important consoles, Switch and PC. With the runaway success of the Switch and the massive popularity of PC gaming, a Crash Bandicoot game would be a wonderful addition to both consoles. Still, this is just a rumor but one that holds a lot of validity since Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy was such a money maker. Opening up its audience would mean even more access to gamers wallets.

Gigamax Games will be keeping a close eye on the progression of these developments surrounding the brand new Crash Bandicoot game that could possibly be released in 2019. Be sure to check back on this page for any updates or additional news from Activision. The gaming world couldn’t believe the headlines and with good reason, they’re not confirmed. However, let’s keep those fingers crossed because a new Crash Bandicoot game would put a smile on millions of gamers faces around the world.

Gameplay Anyone?

If you haven’t had the chance to see gameplay from the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, this will help. Hope you enjoy!

Below you’ll find the top September game releases so you know when to save those hard earned dollars. Check back next month for the biggest games coming out in October!

Destiny 2

It’s finally here fellow guardians, Bungie’s follow up to arguably one of the best shooters of all time. It’s time to prepare your ghost for resurrection and step back into the fight to reclaim your light. This time around, Bungie promised to fix many of the problems that fans found with the previous entry. More story, more loot, more planets, and more fun. Definitely don’t miss this big hit!

Marvel VS. Capcom: Infinite

Fighting fans, prepare yourselves for more universe combining action with the next game in line for the Marvel VS. Capcom series. This time around, Ultron and Sigma believe all human life needs to be killed so they’re teaming up to take care of the problem. Unfortunately for them the heroes from both universes feel differently so the ultimate alliance of heroes is joining forces to make sure humans keep on living. If you’re into Marvel or Capcom, make sure you pick up this love letter to the series!

Metroid: Samus Returns

Hunters, it’s time to return to SR-388 and fight the metroid menace in this reimagining of Metroid II released all the way back in 1991 on the Gameboy.

Theseus Review: Avoid More Than the Minotaur

Theseus Review: Avoid More Than the Minotaur

Whenever a new PlayStation VR title releases, a sense of excitement follows. I begin to wonder what world I’ll get to take an active part in and experience through my very own eyes. Needless to say, when Theseus was first announced I was excited to avoid the infamous Minotaur in the labyrinth he calls a home while fighting creatures that dare to live in his kingdom. Admittedly, the 3rd person camera made me a bit wary of the title, but it was a perspective I had not yet experienced in VR and when done right could be a unique setup. Unfortunately, my concerns rang true, Theseus is a short and dull experience that ends long before you even have the chance to enjoy it and a price point that is far above justifiable doesn’t help either.

Theseus, playstation vr, review, gigamax, gigamax games, theseus review

The Journey into the Labyrinth

Theseus revolves around the characters journey into the labyrinth to escape the limbo he has been cast into. There’s spiders, a minotaur, and one helpful ghost, but that’s it. The game’s lack of NPC’s wouldn’t be so concerning if it did more with the ones it had created. In the short time I explored the maze I fought a cumulative 16-20 generic spider enemies, followed the ghost to the objective, and defeated the minotaur without swinging my sword at him. Also, if my description of the story seems somewhat lackluster it’s only because if I said anymore, the hour and a half long story would be ruined. While there is nothing wrong with a short game, charging $20 for the experience is a ripoff.

The third person perspective is a cool take on VR that could be used to set up some cool scenes. Unfortunately, Theseus’ take on the idea caused an uneasy feeling in my stomach and made little sense in a game that was about tight corridors and fighting spiders. Although it wasn’t the developers direction, the game would have benefitted from a first person perspective.

Theseus, playstation vr, review, gigamax, gigamax games, theseus review

Gameplay and Mechanics 

The gameplay involves climbing up walls, climbing down walls, walking down halls, running down halls, and lazily swinging at spiders. The combat was so dull at some point I tried to just walk to the next objective until an invisible wall impeded my progress that would only disappear when the enemies were defeated. Fighting involves swinging a torch with triangle and swinging a sword with square with no other control choices available, movement and strategy also felt very limited. While the game may take place in a labyrinth at no point was I ever left questioning which way to go. Pro-Tip, a game about a maze should never be a linear experience.

Theseus, playstation vr, review, gigamax, gigamax games, theseus review

Final Overview

Theseus is a collection of ideas that could have been really cool if executed properly. The graphics were great and the character design was creepy in a good way, but ultimately the game fell short in too many areas to justify it’s unusually high price point. If you are looking for a new VR title to pick up, Theseus should probably not be on your list.

Playstation E3: Spiderman PS4 Trailer

Does Whatever A Spiderman Does

I firmly believe that Sony could have walked on stage, shown off the new Spiderman trailer, dropped the mic and walked out. Everyone knew that this game was going to be a treat but no one thought it was going to be as cool as that trailer looked. Not only did the web slinger move and crack jokes like we’d expect him too but he also has the entirety of New York at his disposal. Unfortunately no hard release date was announced but hopefully we’ll be able to spend a gross amount of time much time with this game in the near future. If you missed the trailer, definitely check it out below and let us know what you think!

5 Biggest Announcements From E3 2017

5 Biggest Announcements From E3 2017

E3 2017 has finally wrapped up but in its wake are plenty of huge games to be excited for in the coming months. Between Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo, it’s hard to decide which company had the best conference between these big 3 and we certainly can’t forget Bethesda or EA. That’s why we’ve decided to pick the biggest announcements and pile them into a convenient list. Don’t forget to let us know your favorite E3 announcements in the comments below!

Xbox One X

E3 2017, new games, latest games, Xbox One X, new releases, e3 conference

Right off the bat, Microsoft wanted fans to know that they were going to make up for last year’s lackluster performance. Announcing that the Xbox One X is more powerful than the PS4 Pro was a big move on the company’s behalf and it paid off. They immediately followed this up with 44 games that were all impressive, indicating that software is going to be a huge focus for the new console and more importantly improving their sad list of exclusives. (RIP Scalebound)

Anthem

Initially revealed during EA’s press conference, Microsoft raised the hype to unprecedented levels by showing this beauty of a gameplay trailer. Exoskeletons, an environment that has its own ecosystem, loot, friends… THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE GREAT! Zip through the sky in your custom exoskeleton and show nature what missiles feel like or go on dungeon like instances with your party. We can’t wait to play this game. Did we mention there’s loot.

Creation Club

E3 2017, latest games, Xbox One X, new releases, e3 conference

One of the biggest things stopping us from using mods in Skyrim and Fallout is that you lose the opportunity to gain trophies or achievements. Bethesda has officially announced their remedy to that situation and it is called creation club. Install mods without fear and earn all the satisfaction possible. The only downside to this is that these “certified” mods will cost you and they are not always cheap, bringing back a model that did not go well when implemented on PC.

Monster Hunter World

E3 2017, latest games, Xbox One X, new releases, e3 conference

Sony surprised us all when it announced that the popular Monster Hunter series would be returning to Playstation consoles. Nintendo has long held a monopoly on these games and it’s time for the big boys to get it back. A flashy trailer was shown off to make sure the crowd was excited and the later gameplay demos confirmed that this title will have us obsessed. Also there are no more loading screens in the hunting zones (YES!).

Super Mario Odyssey

We’ve long been Nintendo fan boys here at Gigamax so this Number 1 E3 2017 announcement may be a little biased. But did you see Mario become that T-Rex with his hat?! Super Mario Odyssey looks like an amazing next step for our overall wearing friend and we could not be more pleased with his new mind control powers. Nintendo is approaching the open world a little differently this time around by having Mario enter the real world and mingle with us in the big city. This is our favorite announcement from E3 and definitely are most anticipated title of this year!

Sunday June 11th

Xbox / Microsoft – 2pm Pacific, 5pm Eastern, 10pm BST, 11pm CEST

The first big hardware/software developer to take the stage is Microsoft. Expect the Scorpio to be the focus of this press conference. We are pumped to see what this console actually is and if it’s truly as powerful as the tech company claims. Hopefully the company shows up with a little more than the new console (maybe some Halo news?) but until then we can only cross our fingers.

e3, morrowind, bethesda, youtube, article, video, gigamax, gigamax games, nj gaming, new jersey gaming

Bethesda – 9pm Pacific, 12am Eastern, 5am GMT

Bethesda held their first E3 press conference last year and knocked it out of the park. This year the developer is coming back to the stage to discuss their plans for 2017/2018. Hopefully we’ll hear plenty of new Elder Scrolls new especially with their recent release of the ESO expansion, Morrowind.

Monday June 12th

The PC Gaming Show – 10am Pacific, 1pm Eastern, 6pm GMT

Intel is partnering up with PC gamer to show people what to expect for the best way to experience games. Typically this conference isn’t filled with big announcements, but make sure to keep your eye on the event if you’re big into PC gaming.

Ubisoft – 1pm Pacific, 4pm Eastern, 9pm BST, 10pm CEST

Another year and another uncomfortable yet informative Ubisoft conference. Ubisoft was late to announce their attendance but we have a good idea on what will be featured. Definitely expect more on Assassin’s Creed: Empire, The Crew 2, Far Cry 5, and South Park: The Fractured But Whole.

PlayStation / Sony – 6pm Pacific, 9pm Eastern, 2am BST, 3am CEST

Playstation is sure to impress as they do every year but this time they need to keep up with the Xbox Scorpio announcement. Tons of new IP’s are sure to be announced and we’re excited to hear more about the new God of War. It may be a bit of a stretch, but any information we can get on the new Kingdom Hearts 3 and Final Fantasy 7 remake would be amazing. We may be biased but this is always our favorite press conference!

This year the company is sure to discuss their plans for the Switch and show more gameplay of the upcoming Mario game, Super Mario Odyssey.

Operation Supply Drop: Play Games & Support the Troops

Operation Supply Drop: Play Games & Support the Troops

Today in the United States, marks the day we put aside to remember our troops who have served throughout the nation’s history. Brave men and women that served in our armed forces deserve the utmost respect and whatever support we can offer. Many organizations have been set up that do a lot of work for not only veterans but for active duty service men and women as well. One of these amazing organizations is Operation Supply Drop, a group of veterans and civilians making life a little easier for our country’s troops by using the power of video games.

Operation Supply Drop

Operation Supply Drop: Background and Overview

Operation Supply Drop was founded back in 2010 with the goal of sending “Video game care packages downrange.” By January of 2013 the program had sent 100 supply drops to deployed troops and the only question this organization asked was “what more can we do?” As service members began to return home, Operation Supply Drop started various new programs to help veterans deal with the transitional challenges that come with the return back to civilian life. One of these programs is the “Thank You Deployments” program which offers veterans ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences for continuing the spirit of their service. Another amazing program they run is called “Respawn” which is led by Chief Medical Officer Erik S. Johnson and is centered around helping recovering veterans with the “healing power of gaming.”

So, How Can I Get Involved?

We know, at this point you’re wondering “how can I get involved.” Don’t worry, Operation Supply Drop offers plenty of opportunities for gamers to help out. One important program in particular is called “8-Bit Salute.” The idea of 8-Bit Salute is to unite the gaming community in support of our troops by doing what we all love, play video games. Individuals can set up pages for fans and fellow gamers to donate, which can be promoted through live streams, Youtube videos and any other way you can imagine. In fact, Gigamax has their own 8-Bit Salute page that you can donate at right here!

Operation Supply Drop

Time To Take Action!

This amazing organization has already done so much for our troops and they continue to make a difference everyday. Remember, if you’re interested in helping out you can go donate on the Gigamax team page or you can set up your own team page and encourage friends, family and fans to support the people who are already doing so much for us. If you’re interested in learning more about this wonderful non-profit organization, check out their website and find out about all the ways you can get involved.

Horizon Zero Dawn Record 2.6 Million Copies Sold

Horizon Zero Dawn – Over 2.6 Million Copies Sold

Horizon Zero Dawn made quite a splash when it hit stores on February 28th. The PlayStation 4 exclusive was received well by the community and showed that there’s still some room for originality in open world games. Not only did Horizon Zero Dawn review well (9.3/10 IGN, 9/10 GameSpot, 9.5/10 Polygon), it sold well too. It broke records by selling more than 2.6 million copies within the first two week of release.

Horizon Zero Dawn, gaming, new games, new releases, sony, gigamax, gigamax gamesDeveloped by Guerrilla Games, known for their popular series, Killzone. The sales data for Guerrilla Games latest game, Horizon Zero Dawn include physical copies and online sales.

“We’re thrilled that Horizon Zero Dawn has been embraced by critics and players alike,” Hermen Hulst, managing director of Guerrilla Games said. He continued, “Developing the game was a labor of love, so it’s extremely satisfying to see that it elicits the same passion and enthusiasm from the gaming public that we felt during its development.” http://bit.ly/2m5zh9f

Impressive on Every Level


This game takes the title for best launch of a new Sony-published IP in PlayStation 4 history. Compared with a well-established franchise like Uncharted which topped 2.7 million units sold with Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End in the first week, Horizon Zero Dawn held its own. So even with a loyal fanbase, Uncharted only outsold the new release by 100,000 units.

Hulst did hint that this isn’t going to be the last time we see Aloy. It’s not clear if he was alluding to story DLC for the current game, or if they will be working on a sequel, both would be awesome.

With a host of open world games on the market, Horizon Zero Dawn had the chance to slip through the cracks. However, it defied the odds and truly stood out and the sales numbers are another indicator that Guerrilla Games is onto something with this new IP.
