BF Hardline Beta Dated. New Trailer

Starting Feb 3rd, players will be able to jump into an open beta test for Battlefield Hardline. Looks great and I’m really looking forward to giving it a try.

A new trailer has also been released, which shows a nice mix of the game’s multiplayer and single player. Normally I wouldn’t go near a BF campaign with a 10ft bargepole, but with Visceral in charge this time around, I must admit I’m suitably intrigued.

Hopefully EA and crew can prove that this is a completely new BF experience and not just an overpriced BF4 expansion pack.

Revelations 2 To Feature Micro Transactions

Following the pattern set by pretty much every other game these days, Resident Evil Revelations 2 will feature a micro transaction system.

This will be limited to the game’s RAID mode and allows players to purchase life crystals, essentially allowing them to continue a mission if they die. Capcom went on to say that players will also be able to unlock these crystals by completing daily challenges.

Personally I’m not a fan of this approach as it removes all challenge from the game. Yes they are optional but what’s the point of slogging through a difficult mission to gain an upgrade if someone with an infinite wallet can just buy their way to the same result?

BF Hardline Maps Revealed

Ahead of its March release (and open beta test in there somewhere), the multiplayer maps for Battlefield Hardline have been revealed.

After BF4’s shocking launch I should steer clear of this one but the whole Cops vs Robbers aspect keeps pulling me back in. I suppose I’ll just have to download the beta when it launches and see what I think.

FF Type-0 Footage

Some more footage of FF Type-0 HD has been released and I’m still in two minds about this game.

Despite the slightly bland visuals (it was originally a PSP game after all) and the insanely zoomed in camera, its a Final Fantasy game so I sort of feel obligated to at least try it, plus the story is supposed to be great – lets not forget that FF15 demo code either!

Type-0 HD launches in a couple of months on X1 and PS4. Hopefully I can make my mind up between now and then! 😉
