With the ever expanding presence of camera phones and the internet, leaks happen.  It looks like someone from Gamestop may have snapped an image showing what might be the release date for Tekken 7.  Tekken 7 has been in arcades since 2015 but may be launching on 28 May 2017.  That isn’t very far away so it would be nice to get the next title in the classic fighting game franchise.  The leaked image is below and as someone who did nice work at a Gamestop does match the inventory system.  Is the image completely legit though we don’t know.  We will … Read More »

Recently fans of The Division have been getting a little surprise in their inboxes. Ubisoft has been sending players a survey to gauge their reactions to certain aspects of the game, especially the new DLC pack, Survival.

The questions seem to be trying to find out how players would like the game to developer in the future, so maybe Ubisoft will be … Read More »

That Watch Dogs 2 got made at all still raises an eyebrow. That it’s such a great game – overcoming all its predecessor’s many flaws – is even more surprising. But we can’t help wonder if the incredible hype and subsequent disappointment of the first game has hurt sales of the sequel. After all, once bitten, twice shy. What better way, then, to tempt doubters back to the franchise than by offering a free trial? Ubisoft agrees, it seems. According to the official Ubisoft blog, a free three-hour trial of the full game will be available for download starting 24th January 2017. … Read More »

It would appear that the Xbox One has been a slow burning console. We all remember the debacle that was the E3 reveal of the Xbox One in 2013. The shambolic nature of this reveal directly hurt initial sales of the Xbox One, especially the controversy regarding the new DRM system that Microsoft planned to use. This system was quickly dropped but it has taken the Xbox One a long time to recover. Fast forward three years and this recovery seems to finally be complete. Last month was the biggest ever month for the Xbox One in regards to sales … Read More »

Calling all Crackdown fans; it’s looking like the much delayed and highly anticipated, “Crackdown 3” will be available to buy before  the festive period in 2017 following an announcement by Art Director, Dave Johnson. The previous delays according to various sources have been due to developers ensuring the final version met the original vision of the game. It sounds like it will have been worth the wait, with Head of Xbox Phil Spencer Tweeting in the last week that Crackdown 3 was, ” Best CD exp I’ve had. Agent control, world is very alive, diverse enemies, really fun.” Based on what we have … Read More »

Bungie will be taking Destiny down today, 17 January, 2017, in preparation for a patch.  Bungie is preparing Hotfix 2.5.0.1 which addresses a couple of recent issues involving Xur and the new heavy machine guns brought to guardians during The Dawning.  Here is what Bungie has alluded to so far: Some Patrol missions in the Plaguelands are not reliably causing enemies to drop their respective objective items Xûr’s “Curio” inventory varies on a weekly basis, due to a limitation of his inventory space Weapon Stability on the Nova Mortis and Abbadon Exotic Machine Guns is inconsistent There will be full … Read More »

So what is I am Bread all about, (and does it answer which side a buttered piece will land)?
