XB180 Should Be New XB1 Name. Eh.

Xbox180 XboxOne

Xbox 180 eh!

Xbox 180 instead of XB1? That’s what everyone online is now calling the XboxOne system after Microsoft reversed course on their previous DRM policies.

If you haven’t heard, #nodrm #consumerwins #xboxone is the new rage on the Internet, as Microsoft confirmed that an Internet check is no longer required to play XboxOne games offline and lending, borrowing, renting and trading hardcopy games is fully supported.

This after the huge backlash that Microsoft has received in the wake of the new XboxOne system’s announcement.

Now we’ll see how long the XB180 moniker sticks. :P

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Stage Demo, Trailer, Floor Footage, Press Conference Gameplay Walkthrough Trailers and Videos

Assassin's Creed 4 Pirate Boat Surfing Screenshot Edward

Surfing on a boat! Arrr!

Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag is definitely one of the most highly anticipated games of 2013. The game builds on Assassin’s Creed III‘s engine, while taking the theme of the game into pirate-territory with a focus on the ship-battle and boat exploration gameplay that made an appearance in AC3; and expanding it to an entire game.

Here is the Ubisoft Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Press Conference Gameplay Walkthrough Video.

While the new pirate focus is really cool material to be mined for a videogame, much less an Assassin’s Creed title, the game definitely doesn’t feel as innovative or as big as AC3; as the game essentially looks the same.

I found myself bored with the pirate gameplay, as even though you are a pirate, it just feels like you are on a ship… At least, that’s the impression I got.

Here is the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag E3 2013 Trailer.

Even so, the game is being taken in a lot of new directions. Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag has a new protagonist in Edward Kenway, a British pirate and member of the Assassin Order, and descendant of Connor from Assassin’s Cred III. It will feature three new main cities with a large part of the game set in Cuba. The cities include Havana, Kingston and Nassau; with influence from the Spanish, British and local/surrounding area pirates. All told the game will feature over 50 locations to explore, both on land and via naval ship that you can command (You can also hijack and steal other ships and engage in ship-on-ship warfare).

Ubisoft has also taken Assassin’s Creed IV in a much more open-world direction with the 4th installment, and it will be much less scripted and linear than AC3. Hunting both on land and in water via harpoon has also been added, with the hunting system expanded. In addition, the player’s ship can now be upgraded, and underwater gameplay has been added. Meanwhile, recruiting allies, a feature from Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, returns in AC4. All of this should be good news to AC fans (also, improved crouching!).

Multiplayer will also return. Details in this Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Video Interview:

Here is a look at Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Multiplayer Gameplay in this E3 2013 Floor Footage Video.

Watch all the videos for much more information on this AAA title that will be hitting this year for virtually all platforms. The game will be released on October 29th in America, October 31st in Australia and November 1st 2013 in Europe on Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and WiiU. The game will then hit later this year, likely in November or December, for XboxOne and PS4. Covering just about all the bases except handheld.

Regardless of where you stand on the Assassin’s Creed series, and whether or not you think the yearly annual installment system is making the franchise stale, you have to admit that this game is looking pretty awesome. And I would be surprised if it wasn’t another big hit for Ubisoft. It is a bit surprising that the game is being given a numbered title; but the fact that it stars a new main character, with a new storyline and new pirate direction, make the new numbered title a good fit.

Here are the Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Stage Demos showing lots of gameplay and details from the game.

Mirror’s Edge 2 XboxOne PS4 PC Announced. Coming When Its Ready! Trailer Videos (E3 2013 EA Press Conference)

Mirror's Edge 2 Gameplay Screenshot First Person Fighting XboxOne

The first-person fighting looks amazing.

Mirror’s Edge 2 PS4, XboxOne, PC was announced and shown with an impressive trailer as the send-off for Electronic Art’s E3 2014 Press Conference.

Faith is back! She returns from this underrated gem of a series that didn’t sell well, but I think the sequel will be huge. People recognize that Mirror’s Edge 1 was a absolutely fantastic game, and one that they should’ve bought. All those people who missed out on it, will definitely pick up this sequel.

Especially given how awesome the first-person fighting looked in the new trailer. However they didn’t show much of the parkour, which surely will be a huge part of this sequel just like the fist game.

All-in-all, awesome announcement, especially given that they pointed out that Mirror’s Edge 2 will be released “when it’s ready” :P

It’s also worth noting that platforms were not announced, but surely it will be on PS4, XboxOne and PC when it’s finally announced.

Metal Gear Solid 5 XboxOne Stuns Audience (Microsoft E3 2013 Press Conference). One of the Best Trailers of All Time

Metal Gear Solid 5 XboxOne Gameplay Screenshot Horse Riding

Flat out incredible looking.

Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain for XboxOne made it’s Microsoft E3 2013 Press Conference debut and absolutely stunned the audience with one of the greatest trailers of all time. At least one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen.

Every single aspect of this game (remember Keifer Sutherland Voices Snake) was impressive, from the voice acting and story, to the cinematic nature, to the INCREDIBLE gameplay. Metal Gear Solid 5 takes the franchise into an open-world for the first time and absolutely blows games like Elder Scrolls out of the water when you see the ways Snake can sneak through the environments.

At one point in the trailer he rides on a horse in an expensive desert environment past a group of guards and makes it past them unseen, by hugging to the side of the horse! Absolutely awesome. The gunplay, the close quarters combat, the phenomal graphics… this game just looks incredible.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released likely in 2014 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and now XboxOne. The XboxOne version shown is the first time we’ve seen the fact that MGS5 is coming to a next-gen platform, but it will most-definitely, assuredly, be hitting the PS4 as well. It will likely get announced later today at Sony’s E3 2014 Press Conference.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt XboxOne Announced. Uses SmartGlass. Trailer Videos (E3 2013)

Witcher 3 XboxOne Gameplay Screenshot

Don’t forget about Witcher 3!

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is coming to XboxOne with some exclusive features, including full support for SmartGlass support.

The game, which is the latest from Polish developer CD ProjektRED, is the close of The Witcher trilogy and is the first open-world game in the series. This game looks incredibly impressive. Don’t forget about The Witcher 3 which is an easy game to get lost in the shuffle, but is an incredibly well polished and epic title of high pedigree that should not be missed.

And the Press Conference footage of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt on XboxOne is definite proof of that!

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will be released in 2014 for XboxOne, PS4 and PC.

Panzer Dragoon XboxOne Title Crimson Dragon Announced. Made By Developer Of Phantom Dust, Panzer Dragoon Orta

Crimson Dragon XboxOne Gameplay Screenshot Panzer Dragoon Style Game

Next-gen Panzer Dragoon basically? Sign me up!

Crimson Dragon for XboxOne is an all-new Panzer Dragoon game by the developers who created Panzer Dragoon Orta for the original Xbox and Phantom Dust for original Xbox.

It’s unclear if this is an actual new entry in the Panzer Dragoon series or if it is a spiritual sequel, but it looks and plays exactly like a Panzer Dragoon game and looks absolutely awesome!

Sadly there was a MAJOR technical difficulty moment at Microsoft’s E3 2014 Press Conference where the sound for this trailer cut out ENTIRELY. Which really, really sucks. I’ll post the trailer, with sound, as soon as it’s available.

Crimson Dragon looks to be another fantastic XboxOne exclusive.
