Tom Clancy’s The Division Teaser Trailer for the Trailer

Tom Clancy’s The Division has been given a teaser trailer, which gives you a 24 second look at the game’s Snowdrop Engine. According to the date in the teaser, this is a trailer for a trailer. Inception.

The Snowdrop Engine looks gorgeous off top, this didn’t give me too much time to review the trailer as usual, but I’m intrigued nonetheless.

The Great Console War of 2013 and a Treasure Trove

With the recent release of the Playstation 4, the console war between the Xbox One and the Playstation 4 have begun. One would argue that the Nintendo Wii U is also in the race for number one, but let’s be serious, they released their system and with the declining sales along with a price drop, things aren’t looking too good. The Playstation 4’s release seems to be seemless so far. There’s very few complaints of faulty systems and the supply of PS4 consoles seem to be plentiful. That isn’t stopping entrepreneurs from attempting to charge $1000 for a PS4 bundle on Ebay. I’d advise my fans of EndgameTV to choose the less expensive route of heading to Best Buy and buying one off the shelf.

In what seems like a mafia tactic of wishing the best to your enemy before going to war with them, Xbox tweeted this out this morning.

The Xbox One will be released on November 22, 2013 and I’m on the hunt for one. In the meantime, there will still be retro reviews from my favorite consoles of the past, SNES, NES and Genesis on the site. I’ll also include some Xbox 360 videos until I upgrade.

Trion Worlds, makers of the games Defiance and Rift, have announced an ambitious free to play game called Trove. It’s going to have the same “destroy and build” concept of Minecraft with a mix of RPG tossed in. I’ll admit I’m intrigued by this game and I want to beta test it. Check the video below.

The game looks great, it’s like Minecraft on steroids. While not much was given in the trailer, I have high hopes for this game. The community involvement they promised and commitment to a long replay ability could make this a Steam darling in no time. Here’s hoping they allow me to beta test.
Follow the game’s official twitter account for more details.

I recently upgrade the video editing software I’ve been using for the videos and I should have a headset mic by next week. Stay classy gamers. – Kevo

Just in case you missed it. The Best Battlefield Player Ever

The new Xbox One commercial is quite compelling with it’s message of “Come on.” The Titanfall robot could have saved me from a boring meeting today. I would not have hesitated to climb in the cockpit if invited. The zombie’s invitation was funny also and the Roman soldiers marching near what appears to be an outdoor cafe was intriguing. In the war of commercials, Xbox One is clearly winning.

I would love to have this guy on my squad. He’s calling out enemies, announcing his intentions in combat and he’s role-playing phenomenally well as a soldier at war. My squad issues basic commands and remarks on the battle, but nothing like this guy. Shoutout to the Best Battlefield Player ever.

Call of Duty: Ghosts Multiplayer Recap

Call of Duty: Ghosts is the next big installment in Activision’s shooter franchise. Infinity Ward revealed the first details and footage of the multiplayer mode today at an event in Los Angeles. They include a laundry list of changes that I find to be extremely compelling. Knowing that they face fierce competition from the upcoming Battlefield 4 game, they really stepped it up.

They have 3 new modes now.

Search and Rescue – Finally you’ll get a chance to revive fallen teammates in battle, something that has been available to Battlefield players for years.

Cranked – I call this the anti-camper mode. You get temporary boosts after a kill, but also the clock starts ticking down to your demise unless you get another kill. How do you die? EXPLOSION!

I’m extremely excited about

Squad Mode: You can create 10 soldiers that form your “squad.” You can play in this mode solo, co-op, or competitive and your squad can be “challenged” even while you’re not playing, earning you experience. Squad mode is broken down into:

Squad vs Squad – your basic player vs. player, pitting your squad against someone else’s
Wargame – Pick five of your squad mates to battle against AI
Safeguard – Four player co-op mode
Squad Assault – Six player squads can take-on offline squads

There’s also clans that can be formed now which will allow you to form a clan or join one. You can also participate in Clan Wars where you battle over territory.
As a Battlefield fan, I’m going to have to make a hard decision this fall. Here’s some gameplay video.

New! Watch Dogs Trailer – Hacking the City

Hey, the Angry Gamer here. I’ve been watching this next gen game, Watch Dogs closely. I love a sandbox game as much as the next man and this feels like it could deliver a lot more than the standard we’ve come to expect from Grand Theft Auto. Here’s a new trailer detailing how much hacking impacts gameplay.
