The Power of YouTube: Skate 3 gets a second lease on life thanks to PewDiePie

“Skate 3?” I hear you say. “Why are we talking about a four year old game?” Well, we’re talking about it because this game is currently sitting in 20th position on the UK game sales charts – there is no other game nearly as old in the Top 40. Not surprised yet? EA has actually ordered more copies of Skate 3 to be reprinted to keep up with this newdemand. But what’s the cause of all this commotion around what is ultimately a good, but buggy, skating game? The answer is PewDiePie. Gaming’s YouTube royalty, PewDiePie, is one of countless YouTubers who have made videos of themselves playing Skate 3, a game which isn’t inherently interesting (sorry skating fans!) but is made all the more entertaining by unusual glitches and bugs. For a better idea of why this is so interesting, check out PewDiePie’s Skate 3 video below which has some 12 million ...

Shadow Realms EA BioWare Alpha signup

Alpha sign-ups live for Shadow Realms title from BioWare and EA

Have you been chosen? Apparently we all have. I have seen a number of those emails hit my inbox with some short live action video clips of various things aimed at teasing for an upcoming title from BioWare and EA. They live streamed the event on Twitch TV at 7 a.m-ish PST, but I missed it sadly. However, the live action trailer is up for your viewing pleasure, not that it shows much of anything too entice you as to how the game will play out though. Shadow Realms is a new 4v1 stroy-driven online action RPG style game with dynamic co-op missions in a constantly evolving BioWare world. BioWare RPGs have successfully replicated many of the things that made classic tabletop games fun: powerful storytelling, being able to create your own character, leveling-up that hero to achieve the heights of fantasy power, and tactical combat against a fantastic array ...

It’s Game Time: Origin’s new free round of PC gaming is up with Battlefield 4 and Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

Time to game everyone. Origin’s has just released the new set of freebie trial games that they hope will entice you enough to get hooked so you open up that wallet and buy. The last Origin’s Game Time release was for Titanfall, needless to say, I played the crap out of it and recently bought it about a week ago. Today you have two games to choose from. Battlefield 4 is the hottest titles of the two. If you haven’t picked it up yet, now is your chance to find out for yourself if it is worth having in your collection or not. EA and Dice have had a lot of negative press surrounding the game since it launched, but a lot of things have improved a lot since the start-up of the CTE (community test environment) with plenty more fixes on the way. Being a casual gamer I find ...

Battlefield Hardline is delayed

Battlefield Hardlines to get another beta on all platforms in the Fall

The Battlefield Hardline beta has come and gone in a flash, and while we did get to have a little taste of what was to come (check out our impressions here), we’re not quite sure what EA and Visceral Studios have in store for us for the rest of the game. Luckily though, it looks like there will be a second beta for Hardline, sometime in the fall; likely to mitigate any launch issues like the ones Battlefield 4 weathered. In a blog post, Visceral Studios General Manager, Steve Papoutsis, said: “The Battlefield Hardline beta was just a small portion of what is in store. We have plenty of new modes in the game that really play off the cop and criminal theme, as well as the return of fan-favorites. The variety in maps is also something that Battlefield fans have never experienced before, from subterranean grow labs to the ...

Battlefield Hardline Beta Impressions

Battlefield Hardline Beta Impressions: Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blew Up

Many of you will have heard about EA and Visceral Games‘ latest foray into the first person shooter domain, Battlefield Hardline, and quite a number of you will have experienced it first hand as part of its beta over the last few days. While the beta is still going to be open for a few days more, I thought I’d stop amongst all the chaos and lay down a few of my thoughts on the game at this early stage. Before I get into my nitty, gritty, and opinionated views, I’d like the preface these impressions by saying that I have been a huge fan of the Battlefield series ever since I got into Battlefield 2. Battlefield Bad Company 2, Battlefield 3 and Battlefield 4 are just some of the medals that I have worn on my chest through the years, and it’s with those war-wearied eyes that I turn my ...

Battlefield Hardline Beat for PC

Battlefield Hardline Beta ‘Instant Access’ Available for PC Players

Just a week ago EA officially announced the new Battlefield Hardline game in cooperation with Dead Space creator, Visceral Studios. Visceral  is handling the simple player and story line aspect of the game while EA is handling the multiplayer aspect. When they announced the title at E3 they also made a closed beta of the mulitplayer aspect available for PC players. Picking it up was pretty easy, just go to the Battlefield page, sign into your Origins account and agree to the terms and conditions. It took a little while for the game to make its appearance in your “My Games” section of Origins. Not everyone has had the chance to get in and check out the new title though, but that just changed later in the evening last night. The official Battlefield blog announced that any PC player out there can not sign up and get instant access to the ...
