Gamers who loved the original 2013 "Deadpool" game will love this piece of news: the game has been released for current generation consoles, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One, according to a report in International Business Times. Developer High Moon Studios and publisher Activision has made the PS4 and Xbox One version available last November 17.
The game is based on the Marvel comics character Deadpool, also known as the "Merc with a Mouth." The character is known for his humorous dialogue as well as his penchant for breaking the fourth wall, which means he always addresses the audience in his various dialogues.
The game is described as a "top cut of gun-and-katana-seared action, drizzled with an aioli of maniac sass and quips." While the game brings Deadpool's characteristic gun- and katana-wielding combat, it also showcases what fans like most about the character – his humor. more >>
The highly popular first-person shooter video game "Destiny" has just received a new update. Update 2.0.2 brings with it a lot of changes especially in the game's Player vs. Player part called the Crucible, according to a report in Tech Times. The Crucible is where playlists of Player vs. Player modes are found, such as those that feature individual, 3-on-3 and 6-on-6 matches.
The report noted that the reason behind the changes in the Crucible is because of the apparent difficulty of completing quests and bounties in the Player vs. Player mode. Thus, the game developer Bungie has thought of making adjustments on the quests and bounties. Instead of needing to win a Crucible match in order to make progress in a quest or bounty, players only need to complete a match to achieve progress. Winning is no longer necessary as playing the match is enough.
There are some quests that reward players who win their matches by helping them complete some quests faster than usual. But generally, players can just play the matches and they will still be able to finish quests and get bounties. As far as legendary item drop rates are concerned, the update has provided an increase for these in the Crucible. more >>

The popular shooter game exclusive to Xbox One, "Halo 5: Guardians," has received its first free expansion pack a few days ago. Called "Battle of Shadow and Light," this free content pack is said to be one of the "many" free updates that the game is set to receive from game developer 343 Industries. Among the biggest features of this update is the Big Team Battle that allows teams of eight players to battle it out in four new Big Team Battle maps.
According to a report in GameSpot, aside from the 8v8 Big Team Battles, there are also four new maps which were made using Halo 5's Forge tools and were said to be inspired by previous maps that appeared in the game. The new maps are Deadlock, Basin, Guillotine and Recurve.
Apart from the new maps, the update also brings with it 48 new REQs, which includes new weapons, weapon skins, armor such as the Shinobi armor set and the Tracer armor set and emblems.

Electronic Arts' "Star Wars: Battlefront" is already available for buyers after its release on November 17. For $60, gamers can purchase and play the much-awaited first- and third-person shooter video game which is also said to be a reboot of the original "Star Wars: Battlefront" series. Even before the game's release however, EA has also announced that a Season Pass for the game can be had for a whopping $50, which is considered high for additional content that is yet to arrive to the game. According to a report in Tech Times, fans of the game were taken aback by the Season Pass' price.
In order to appease its fans, however, EA and Dice eventually detailed the contents of the Season Pass which they think justifies its price. According to the report, EA provided details two days before the game was scheduled to be released.
The report noted that the upcoming content of the game will be doubled with the Season Pass. It is said to bring 16 new multiplayer maps, which will be featuring several new planets but does not include the free Battle of Jakku map. Not much detail about these new maps was given however. more >>
