Following on from my review back in May, the third instalment in The Witcher series has had its first full expansion: Hearts of Stone. Hot on the heels of sixteen free bits of DLC, including three sizeable quests, a New Game+ mode and – in a not-so-subtle jab at competitor series The Elder Scrolls – horse armour, CD Projekt Red show the rest of the industry how it’s done with a fully-fledged expansion comprising of a big overhaul to a previously unused part of the map, an exciting new 10-hour storyline, new creatures and monsters to fight, new gear to equip, new cards for the in-game collectible card game, a new lady to seduce (if you’re into that) and a bunch of new sidequests. All for under seven quid. Take that, nickel-and-diming games industry. ↓ Read the rest of this entry…
Earlier yesterday evening we went ahead with our plan to give you a live stream of our play-through of classic arcade beat’em up Final Fight, beginning a new feature for Rosetintedgamers, however things did not go to plan.
A series of connection fucks ups, download issues and other shit out of our control threw a spanner in the works. Nevertheless, ever the professionals we soldiered on with the show and decided to have a good old rant about games, Star Wars and shitty games retailers.
Both myself and Mentski would like to not just offer our apologies, but also our thanks for those of you who stuck around and not only listened but commented on the show.
There is good news, however! After we finished Mentski was having none of it and even though I was a few ales to the wind we have managed to finally get things running pretty smoothly. So as of next week, (Monday is looking good), we’ll bring you that live stream of Final Fight and in glorious 60fps.
Here’s a link to the botched, but enjoyable “test run” of “Mentski & DaddyBrown Play” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCrZf-D3TtY
Once again apologies for the fuck up, thanks for your patience and hopefully we’ll see you all next week.
Starting life as a Kickstarter project, newly founded British developer Lilith’s “Allison Road” has caught the attention of veteran publisher/developer Team 17.
Just as you thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse EA have confirmed that Star Wars Battlefront will have no dedicated voice chat on any system.
No voice chat – on a team based online shooter. Good work.
Of course PC users will be able to use third-party software, (and I imagine console users will be able to use each systems respective built in party systems), nevertheless this news only serves to further highlight a certain amount of laziness has gone into the development of SWBF. “Christmas is coming folks, bang this fucker out!”
Anything else we’re not aware of EA? I’m going to run out of Star Wars gags at this rate…
