Special | Summary 23

So a bunch of Game news/items to discuss. So let's get on with it...

PROJECT CARS | This game is already a long time on my list to follow. And today I noticed an article from PC Gamer stating that the game will be out in April this year... Project Cars is basicly what R Factor already is a couple of years. But Project Cars will be better they say. Everyone that is in there program of testing/playing is really excited about it, as far as I hear. So it must be good. I've seen trailers from it. And everytime it looks awesome ! But a racer that looks awesome don't have to be good. So hopefully it really IS good. The original date was November last year. Now it was March this year. And now it has been moved to April ! Slightly Mad Studios are behind it (known for Need for Speed Shift 2). In the latest teaser I saw a lot of different car types/years and a lot of tracks. And that with a crowd-funding as one of there sources...

GTA IV, GTA V, GTA VI | GTA V is this week almost free for Xbox Live Gold members on the Xbox 360: 58% off ! For the Xbox One it's 15% off ! Further more there will be a new GTA IV iCEnhancer, version 3.0 is out since 6 months. And every single time it looks better. I try'd to let it work on my PC that I now have / play GTA IV on. But it doesn't run at all basicly. My new PC (whitch I await before the release of GTA V however may run it). Necessary ? Well not really (to have the iCEnhancer that is). But it just looks great. And everytime a jaw-drop when I see it. Not long ago the person behind it almost quit the work. And understandably so. Most of the time he got bullcrap over him on the web. But he has recovered from that... Thankfully ! Then GTA VI. Yes you read it right, Rockstar is already in the progress of making GTA VI. All we know for 'sure' right now is that the game will only come to Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC. Because of the amount of space it requires to fully function. And the performance it requests. Location ? Unknown for now. Like I already talked about this with a friend of mine. It should not be a re-make of an earlier GTA. We know they can do that now. And that it is nice. If they want to make a re-make none the less. Let them do Vice City, and bigger please... I already see some nice comments GTA VIce city. And a simultanious release for the consoles/pc. But we'll have to wait... (If you forgot, GTA V on PC will be out at the 24th of March (1 year after the initial release)).

THE DIVISON | I came across an old article not long ago. Ubisoft had some difficult times (still do ?). And hopefully for them and 'us' the gamers they will do better with The Division. As far as we've seen now. It should great. But will it remain that way. I was blown by Watch_Dogs as first as well. But now not at all. And that same faith could await The Division. And with the man him self (Tom Clancy) no longer among us we can only fear... (I recon). But Ubisoft promised us (in the article I am referring to) that the PC WILL see optimised graphics. Still Ubisoft, you know how to do it. So just do it. And don't give us that downgrade stuff. The Crew was a total disaster. That snowflake engine must deliver ! The release date is still for somewhere during this year. On the dutch version of IGN it says however (end of Dec. 2015). So maybe even 2016 ? RAINBOX SIX SIEGE | It was a game I didn't expect on last years E3. But none the less I look forward to it. The hole co-op aspect could be big/nice. It's a franchise Ubisoft already masters. Together with Ghost Recon it's the biggest if not the only tactical shooter out there. That one is also set to be released somewhere this year... The techniques they use sound nice, but WILL they be nice as well ? Unscripted surroundings. Better AI, and so on...

PORTAL STORIES: MEL | A Portal 2 Mod, with over 20 levels. In comparison to Aperture Tag, this one will be free ! And takes place between Portal 1 and Portal 2. The trailer looks amazing ! New person to play, new story/dialogue. Basicly everything. It will come this quarter (Q1). So you better re-install Portal 2 ! I am really looking forward to this. If you want to know more about this go to This Steam page.

DYING LIGHT | There are a lot of people with different comments on this game. For me however, I have to wait for my new PC to properly play this game. So expect a Review or Re:Play item about this game, when I will be able to play it. Already seen the first couple of seconds from the game and it looks awesone. But as far as I hear now, it is real short for a game with this much to give/bring ! So hopefully it won't let down on that aspect. Otherwise I could better play Dead Island again... There are also some performance issues with the game. With a lot of fixes around the web as well. TechLand's response on VG 24/7. And one of the fixes available, thanks to VG 24/7 !
