To the surprise of very few, WildStar – Carbine Studio’s colorful MMORPG – is going free to play. The transition to the new model is scheduled to take place this fall and according to the developers the game won’t change or hide features behind a paywall once this occurs. This is better than the likes of Champions Online, who flaunts features and options that you can’t access without paying, but rather than go the Guild Wars 2/Elder Scrolls Online model with an upfront game purchase, WildStar is going to follow more in the tracks of Star Wars: The Old Republic and go completely free to play.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is a good game, one of the best from the Xbox 360/PlayStation 3 era, and it still holds up today. However, its online component – Grand Theft Auto Online – is a slightly messy but all around brilliant experience, and for me at least has completely eclipsed anything from the single player mode. There are always things happening, things to see and things to do in GTA Online, and here are a few things that I have run across in my time with the game.
Last night was launch night for Grand Theft Auto 5 on PC, and in a turn of events no one could have possibly foreseen, it was a bit of a bear. We did a live stream last night, fighting through multiple patching issues and launcher resets, after over 70 minutes we finally got to actually play the game. Since then we’ve put in a few hours of play, so let’s have an early First Opinion look at Grand Theft Auto 5 PC.
It has been official for a while now, but Grand Theft Auto 5 is indeed coming to PC on April 14th. Many, myself included, have already preloaded the game (at 60.4 GBs, I’m glad they gave us plenty of prep time), so it’s just a matter of time before the game goes live and PC gamers get let loose on Los Santos. Here at AAGH, we are preparing for the launch with a new GTA Online crew and a launch-night livestream.
Last time we checked in on Dragon Ball Xenoverse, I was preparing to wage war on all of Saiyan kind in the name of Humanity. I had lined up my targets – Radditz, Nappa, Vegeta and Goku – and was preparing to do battle with them in one-on-one combat. The goal: to tear down the Saiyan-based DBZ power monopoly. Now it is time for battle, so let’s see how I did.
After an initial delay from a simultaneous launch with current-gen platforms to January, and then its subsequent delays to March and then April, it looks like Grand Theft Auto 5 is finally going to come to PC on April 14th. One indicator of that is the finally-released PC trailer on Rockstar’s website, which shows a version of the game that looks like it will be the definitive visual showcase for GTA5.
I have been an anime fan for a long time now, and one of the first series I got hooked on back in my school days was Dragon Ball Z. At the time I started watching the show had been airing for some time and was in the middle of the Frieza arc, so my sister and I would try and figure it out to no avail. It eventually became far more fun not knowing what was going on as we would ascribe random motives and traits to the characters and basically made up our own storyline. After eventually watching it from the start I have to say that our made-up story was at least as fun and made just about as much sense as the real thing. I haven’t seen an episode of DBZ (or read any of the manga for that matter) in probably 10 years now, so when Dragon Ball Xenoverse launched in February I figured I would pick it up for nostalgia’s sake. What started as a lark has became a personal crusade – a crusade against Saiyans.
After weeks of rampant internet speculation and a denial by Rockstar, the unfortunate has happened: the PC version of Grand Theft Auto 5 has been delayed. Once due to release on January 27th, PC gamers will have to wait a few more months to explore Los Santos. Continue reading
