The Evil Avatar Death Stranding Review
Dec 04, 2019 - 7:19 AM - by Evil Avatar

Even after you play it, you still aren't sure what it is about. Writer Aaron Birch tries to put words together to explain the weird trailers and weirder gameplay of Kojima's Death Stranding.

You’ve got to hand it Hideo Kojima. I can’t think of any other developer who could take one of the most hated tropes in video gaming – the fetch quest – and make an entire game out of it, but Death Stranding is essentially that. I mean, come on, you play a postman, a guy whose job it is to literally take objects from A to B. Sure, this postman has to deal with a crazy, post-apocalyptic world, rain that causes anything it touches to age rapidly, and ghosts who want to drag him into an alternate dimension, but yeah, even in the midst of this, the post has to be delivered. Luckily, Norman Reedus is a damn fine postman, it turns out.

Halo Reach Launches for PC & Xbox
Dec 03, 2019 - 7:14 PM - by Evil Avatar

The Master Chief's saga on PC comes equipped with new features, optimizations, and customizations built for the platform. Halo: Reach looks and plays better than ever at 60 frames-per-second (or greater via an experimental variable framerate option) with 4K UHD support, and a multitude of settings to custom-tailor the experience to your hardware and personal preferences.

Players will have a few different avenues to obtain Halo: Reach depending on the platform of choice:
  • Xbox Game Pass – Subscribe with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Game Pass for PC (Beta) and get Halo: Reach, the first chapter in Halo: The Master Chief Collection, today. Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary, Halo 2: Anniversary, Halo 3, Halo 3: ODST (Campaign) and Halo 4 are also included in your membership and will be available on each game's respective release date, completing the collection on PC in 2020.
  • Microsoft Store & Steam – The Halo: The Master Chief Collection bundle is available today for $39.99 USD, which includes Halo: Reach and will automatically update with the remaining titles as they launch next year. Halo: Reach can also be purchased individually for $9.99 USD. Note that you don't have to purchase both of these options - we've seen some confusion out there. Think of the MCC product as a launcher that will house Reach. You can purchase MCC complete which will auto-update with all titles as they are released or you can just purchase Reach standalone (but it will still install the MCC shell as a launcher).

Please note that an Xbox Live Account is required to play Halo: Reach PC online. If you don’t have one yet, head HERE to create a FREE Xbox Live account now.
Halo Waypoint.

The Evil Avatar Star Wars Jedi Fallen Order Review
Nov 29, 2019 - 1:10 PM - by Evil Avatar

Long time EvAv contributor Vallor is here today to take us to a Galaxy Far, Far, Away and give us his review of Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order

Don't Get Cocky!

You may have heard there's a new Star Wars movie coming soon. However, Star Wars hasn't been a terribly happy place after the two most recent movies were poorly received and with the ripple effects of the Battlefront "lootbox-gate" still being felt as legislation is being proposed around the world thanks to that snafu. Now Disney and EA sending another Star Wars branded item into the lions den to see how it fairs. Did Disney and EA do more damage to the franchise or is this a good omen of things to come? Is it worth grabbing on Black Friday or Cyber Monday?

The short answer is: yes!

PlayStation Plus Games for December 2019 Announced
Nov 27, 2019 - 12:36 PM - by Evil Avatar

December’s Free PS Plus Games: Titanfall 2 and Monster Energy Supercross — The Official Videogame

Whether you’re piloting a towering Titan or kicking up dirt on the racetrack, December’s PS Plus games put you in control of fast-moving, powerful machines.

More on this month’s free games for PS Plus members:

Titanfall 2

The only thing standing between victory and defeat for the Frontier Militia is the perfect combination of man and machine – Titan and Pilot. In Titanfall 2, an intense first-person-shooter from Respawn Entertainment, you’ll experience high-speed mobility as a nimble Pilot who can quickly maneuver the battlefield both in distance and verticality. But when the scale of battle shifts, you’ll be able to call in a hulking Titan war machine for you to pilot to turn the tide of battle.

Featuring a critically-acclaimed single player campaign, players will take on the mantle of rifleman-turned-Pilot Jack Cooper, who finds themselves trapped behind enemy lines with BT-7274, his new Titan partner. To escape the IMC and save the day, they’ll have to learn to work together and become an effective fighting unit. The skills you earn in single player also carry over to Titanfall 2’s explosive multiplayer modes where mayhem rules supreme for anyone looking to take the fight online.

Monster Energy Supercross — The Official Videogame

Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame contains official bikes, tracks and riders, of the Supercross Championship. You’re also able to customize bikes & riders with numerous brands and items to design your ideal rider and face players around the world. The Track Editor lets you make and share your own custom creations with other players. Start with a stadium of choice, then craft away and share it with the community.

Titanfall 2 and Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame will be available from December 3 to January 6.

Feral Interactive today announced that Alien: Isolation, the AAA survival horror game, will be released on the Nintendo Switch system on 5 December 2019.

Blair Witch Coming to PS4 on December 3rd
Nov 20, 2019 - 9:57 AM - by Evil Avatar

Bloober Team and Lionsgate Announce Blair Witch For PlayStation 4

Today, Bloober Team, the creative minds behind the critically acclaimed Layers of Fear games, in partnership with global content leader Lionsgate, call you back to the woods with the upcoming release of Blair Witch on the PlayStation 4. Earlier this fall, this psychologically frightening return to the Black Hills Forest, known to host the iconic Blair Witch horror, reminded us of the gut-wrenching fear felt with the film series and can now be downloaded digitally via the PlayStation™Store for $29.90 USD starting on December 3, 2019.

The updated Blair Witch, which will first be available for digital download and later via physical retail versions, will include gameplay and technical enhancements. Additionally, players will now be able to customize their canine companion in various ways to make Bullet their personal “good boy” with the addition of the appropriately named “Good Boy Pack”; which will include new dog skins; new in-game cellphone games, wallpapers, and content; and new animations for Bullet - making him even more realistic. The “Good Boy Pack” will also be available on PC via Steam and the Xbox One family of devices including the Xbox One X via the Xbox Games Store and Xbox Game Pass.

Blair Witch offers fans, and players alike, their own descent into madness through an original story inspired by Lionsgate’s iconic Blair Witch. Set in 1996, a young boy disappears in the Black Hills Forest near Burkittsville, Maryland. Players experience the horror as Ellis, a former police officer with a troubled past, accompanied by his trustful canine companion, Bullet. Their story starts as they join the search for the missing boy, but players shortly discover the horrors that await as the woods twist and turn into an endless nightmare. Ellis will have to confront his fears, and his past, along with the mysterious force that haunts the woods.

The first-person experience studies players’ reactions to the many dangers, stresses and tolls that the original story delivers, and results in one of various potential playthroughs. In addition to the horrifying psychological experience, there is a balanced display of the beautiful environments showcased in full in-game 4K; tricking adventurers to feel a sense of relief before venturing even deeper into the home of the iconic Blair Witch. Blair Witch is enhanced for 4K gameplay on Xbox One X and supported PCs via Steam, and will also be supported via PS4 Pro upon its digital release.

To celebrate the upcoming PS4 release of Blair Witch, Bloober Team and Lionsgate Games released a brand-new trailer and set of visual assets which can be viewed or downloaded via the press kit link above.

Valve announces Half-Life:Alyx, new flagship VR game
Nov 18, 2019 - 9:55 PM - by brandonjclark

It's official, Half-Life: Alyx is happening. Valve's long-awaited "flagship VR game" will be revealed to the world at 10 am PT/1 pm ET on November 21. The tweet comes from a relatively new account—created June 2019—with a small number of followers, and this is actually its first tweet. It's also odd that Valve would make such a big announcement over a channel that so few people were paying attention to. The official Steam Twitter feed, to compare, has 5.2 million followers. But it's verified, and the tweet has been retweeted by a few Valve folks, so we're confident it's legit: A new communications channel for a "new" kind of Valve, maybe.
We'll keep you posted.
I'm pretty sure I said this was going to happen awhile back. They'd tie their new HL game to VR to sell systems. And they are apparently making three of them (cough cough).

CrossfireX 'Black Widow' Gameplay Teaser Trailer
Nov 17, 2019 - 6:45 PM - by Evil Avatar

CrossfireX: The Journey to Bring One of the World’s Biggest Games to Console

At the E3 Media Briefing this year I was surprised to hear Phil Spencer’s announcement about CrossfireX, a first-person shooter coming exclusively to Xbox consoles in 2020 and the first console version of one of the most played PC games in the world. As someone who has put thousands of hours into FPS games, I was intrigued and knew I needed to learn more about the game.

CrossfireX features the combined efforts of three incredible teams – Smilegate Entertainment from Seoul, South Korea, who bring their decade of expertise crafting innovative multiplayer content for the Crossfire franchise; Remedy Entertainment in Espoo, Finland, who bring their narrative expertise from classics like Alan Wake, Max Payne and Control to craft a single player campaign that brings the Crossfire universe to life; and of course Xbox, who are helping the developers bring Crossfire to console for the first time.

Shortly before X019 I set out on a journey to learn how these teams came together and learn more about what they are working on. Hit the video above to find out what I learned – and be sure and stay tuned to the end for the first gameplay teaser trailer we also debuted during the X019 Inside Xbox broadcast.

I cannot wait for you all to see what the teams have been working on when CrossfireX hits Xbox consoles in 2020. To keep up with all the latest news stay tuned to xbox.com/CrossfireX.

Pure Evil - Microsoft Still Doesn't Get It
Nov 17, 2019 - 6:04 PM - by Evil Avatar

I posted all the stuff Microsoft announced during their London game conference (Grounded, Everwild, Bleeding Edge & Tell Me Why) and there is really nothing there for real gamers to get excited about and certainly nothing that matches the quality of Sony's first-party stuff like Spider-Man, The Last of Us 2 or Death Stranding.

During the show, Aaron Greenberg was bragging about how Gears of War 5 has an 84 on Metacritic. 84? That means it's "Good, but not great." Hardly a score worth bragging about.

Their biggest title is another Halo title and Age of Empires IV, a game from a company that Microsoft CLOSED right when they were being successful. I went to visit Ensemble Studios before the release of Age of Empires 3 and they had some great stuff in development behind the scenes that was just lost when Microsoft closed the company. I like the Warhammer 40k titles Relic did, but they are no Ensemble.

They also seem to be really worried that the PS5 is going to eclipse the Scarlett in performance.

It feels like the Xbox division lost their way somewhere and despite throwing a bunch of money at little indie studios they still have a long way to go before they are ever more than the 3rd place console again.

Even their Games Pass can't save them. What good is getting everything Microsoft makes if everything they make is something you would never want to play? As soon as my free two months is up, I'm canceling Games Pass.

Microsoft and Dontnod Entertainment Announce Tell Me Why for Xbox One and PC
Nov 15, 2019 - 5:35 PM - by Evil Avatar

Announcing Tell Me Why, the Newest Narrative Adventure Game from Dontnod Entertainment

This year at X019 in London, Xbox Games Studios was proud to unveil Tell Me Why, a gripping, true-to-life narrative adventure coming to Xbox One, Windows 10 PC, Xbox Game Pass and Steam starting Summer 2020. Tell Me Why is the next title from our partner, Dontnod Entertainment, the studio behind the beloved Life is Strange franchise.

Set in small-town Alaska, Tell Me Why places you at the heart of a mystery in an intimate, true-to-life story where twins Tyler and Alyson Ronan use their extraordinary bond to unravel memories of a loving but troubled childhood.

“The core mechanic of the game is the special bond Tyler and Alyson share and is also a theme strongly anchored into the Dontnod storytelling approach,” explained Florent Guillaume, Tell Me Why‘s Game Director. “Over the course of the story, players will explore the identical twins’ different memories of key events and choose which memory to believe. Ultimately, the choices players make determine the strength of the twins’ bond—and the future course of their lives.”

Tyler and Alyson are both playable characters and equal heroes in the story. “We love them both,” continued Guillaume, “And we are especially grateful to Microsoft for its full support, openness and help regarding Tyler’s identity and character, as a transgender man.”

Dontnod has worked closely alongside Microsoft and the LGBTQ media advocacy organization GLAAD in shaping Tyler as an authentic representation of the trans experience, as well as a genuine, multidimensional character. Tyler is also the first playable videogame hero from a major studio and publisher who is also transgender. “Microsoft and Dontnod have approached Tyler with a real commitment to authenticity,” explains Nick Adams, Director of Transgender Representation at GLAAD. “Tyler is a fully-realized, endearing character, whose story is not reduced to simplistic trans tropes. Creating a playable lead trans character – and taking such care to get it right – raises the bar for future LGBTQ inclusion in gaming.”

The story of Tell Me Why is comprised of three chapters that will release on a clear and predictable schedule. Dontnod are passionate about the opportunities for community-building and audience engagement that come with episodic storytelling, but they are also dedicated to innovation and improvement.

“We listened closely to fans of narrative adventure games, and we heard loud and clear how painful unpredictable gaps between episodes can be,” said Peter Wyse, General Manager for Xbox Games Studios Publishing. “We’re thrilled to announce that the entire Tell Me Why story will release in the Summer 2020.”

Tell Me Why will release with Xbox Game Pass and will also be available for purchase on Xbox One, Windows PC and Steam. Stay tuned to the official website, tellmewhygame.com for updates and behind-the-scenes information!

Gaming for Everyone is Microsoft’s commitment to making Xbox a place where everyone has fun. We believe that play is a fundamental need, and we strive to make life more fun for billions of people around the world by creating gaming experiences that are inclusive and welcoming, because when everyone can play, we all win.

Microsoft and Rare Announce Everwild for Xbox One and PC
Nov 15, 2019 - 5:21 PM - by Evil Avatar

Rare Announce Its New IP and Share Details on the Next Sea of Thieves Update

Even for a studio with as long and rich a legacy as Rare, today has been a special day.

At this evening’s X019 event in London, we were able to share with fans some of the incredible things that the different teams at Rare have been working on. This included talking about the next monthly update for Sea of Thieves, as well as giving fans a first glimpse of the next new IP from Rare, Everwild.

It reminds me of the last time we made two big announcements at an event, which was E3 2015 where we announced Rare Replay and showed the world the first glimpse into our unique vision for Sea of Thieves. This feels as big a moment for Rare as it did in 2015.

While Everwild is still early in development, we are very excited about the unique potential of the game we are creating. The Everwild team is focused on building an experience that allows for new ways to play in a natural and magical world. The development team, led by Executive Producer Louise O’Connor, is creating something truly original and incredibly special that aims to be more than just a new IP. Everwild will give you memorable, engaging and meaningful experiences for players everywhere to share. We cannot wait to share more with you in the future.

We are also pleased to share the next free monthly update to Sea of Thieves, The Seabound Soul, arriving on November 20. This update features an all-new, lore-focused Tall Tale mission for players looking to play their part in a thrilling story. Join Captain Pendragon to uncover the mystery of the feared ship, the Ashen Dragon, and reveal the secrets of a sinister new threat. For those yet to play a Tall Tale, these narrative driven stories are our take on a “campaign” but set within a rich shared world of Adventure. This update also brings the heat to Sea of Thieves with the introduction of firebombs! This explosive ammo can be thrown or loaded into cannons to put a fiery panic in the hearts of opposing crews in both Adventure and in The Arena. Added to this there are new commendations and cosmetics to earn and buy in the Pirate Emporium. You can play Sea of Thieves on Windows 10 PC, Xbox One and with Xbox Game Pass.

Having two large games in development represents a tremendous opportunity for Rare and the talented staff here as we grow and further evolve the studio to meet the challenges of simultaneously operating a successful live service and being in pre-production for a new IP. While Everwild and the team building it will get everything they need, we are still fully committed to Sea of Thieves — Joe, Mike, Shelley and the team still have plenty of creative ideas and plans to bring to Sea of Thieves for a long time to come and we have a number of central teams that support both games.

Finally, on behalf of everyone at the studio I’d like to thank all the fans for their tremendous support for Rare, from the millions of players who play Sea of Thieves to those that engage with our community playing together and sharing stories. It means a huge amount to us and it’s the passion of our fans that inspires our team to create the kind of games the world doesn’t have that are uniquely Rare.

Microsoft and Obsidian Announce Survival Game Grounded for Xbox One and PC
Nov 15, 2019 - 7:47 AM - by Evil Avatar

Xbox Game Studios and Obsidian Entertainment Announce Grounded, Available in 2020

During X019 in London, Xbox Game Studios and Obsidian Entertainment today announced Grounded, a new first-person, co-op survival game coming Spring 2020 to Xbox One digitally through Xbox Game Preview and with Xbox Game Pass, Microsoft Store, and on Steam. Grounded will be the first Xbox Game Preview title available with Xbox Game Pass.

In Grounded, players are shrunken to the size of an ant and tasked with surviving in the unique micro-world of a suburban backyard. Players must gather, craft and build bases with everyday objects found within the yard, searching for life-saving resources and living alongside giant, peaceful insects while fighting to survive massive hostile inhabitants.

Grounded provides a mix of environmental and narrative driven story telling. Set in a versatile, handcrafted sandbox structure it allows players to create their own experience from the ground up. Tasks that may seem approachable when human-sized become a challenge in this dangerous backyard landscape. This familiar yet fantastical world can be navigated solo or in four-person co-operative multiplayer, where players work together to complete missions or explore the intricately detailed world.

Created by a small development team, one of many working on new projects in the studio, Grounded is a true passion project. This title has given the team the creative outlet to bring their years of developing highly regarded games to bear on the survival genre. RPGs like The Outer Worlds will always be in Obsidian’s DNA, but from time to time we want to stretch our creative muscles and try things that might be a little different.

Microsoft has been a fantastic partner for Grounded which was in development long before the acquisition last year. We’re fortunate to be given the freedom to continue flexing our creative muscles and develop the games we want to make.

Curious for more Grounded details? Check out the all-new trailer, stay tuned to Xbox Wire for future updates, and join the Xbox Insider Program here for a chance to play before the official release in Spring 2020!

‘The Witcher’ Renewed for Season 2 at Netflix Ahead of Series Premiere
Nov 14, 2019 - 7:25 AM - by Evil Avatar

“The Witcher” is getting a second season at Netflix before the first has even launched.

The streamer has renewed the drama series starring Henry Cavill, which is based on the book series of the same name by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski. The most recent novel, “Season of Storms,” was published in 2013. The series has also been adapted into a popular video game franchise as well as comic books and tabletop games.

The eight-episode second season will begin production in London early in 2020, for a planned debut in 2021. The eight-episode first season will launch on Netflix on Dec. 20. Cavill will return for the second season as protagonist Geralt of Rivia, with Anya Chalotra returning as Yennefer along with Freya Allan as Ciri.

“I’m so thrilled that before fans have even seen our first season, we are able to confirm that we’ll be returning to The Continent again to continue telling the stories of Geralt, Yennefer and Ciri,” showrunner Lauren Schmidt Hissrich said.
