Axiom Verge : un portage 3DS à l’étude

Déjà en cours d’adaptation sur Xbox One et Wii U, le metroidesque Axiom Verge pourrait également voir le jour sur 3DS selon son créateur, qui cherche actuellement à dépasser quelques contraintes techniques de la machine.Tom Happ a ainsi expliqué au site Nintendo World Report que la définition réduite de l’écran (400 x 240 contre 480×272 pour le jeu original) et le manque de mémoire vive de la 3DS pour afficher certains effets graphiques posaient pour l’instant des problèmes, mais que ces derniers n’étaient pas insurmontables et faisaient l’objet d’une attention particulière de sa part ces derniers temps. L’annonce d’une nouvelle mouture nomade (après la version Vita en avril) n’est donc pas impensable, même s’il faudra probablement viser la New 3DS…

Total War: Warhammer Expands With Blood & Gore DLC

Total-War-Warhammer-Pre-Order-Bonus-and-High-King-Edition-unveiled-6-1024x576
The Warhammer universe has always run red with the blood of the fallen, and some redditors believe that a cryptic message posted to the Total WarFacebook and Twitter profiles means “the red stuff” will soon be available in Creative Assembly’s new Total War: Warhammer – a theory confirmed when the Russian version of the “Blood for the Blood God” trailer was leaked early Thursday.

Somewhat controversially, “blood and gore” packs have been released as paid DLC for Total War titles since at least Shogun II, and while players have sometimes groused about this, it’s allowed Creative Assembly to avoid M for Mature or PEGI 18+ ratings for the base games, potentially making them more marketable.

In any event, it looks like the Claret Creative Assembly’s Al Bickham mentioned in our interview really will be available soon for Total War: Warhammer players to spill, and some studious redditors over at r/totalwar managed to work it out based on the Chaos Runes that appeared on Total War’s official social media accounts.

The runes spell out “Aaz Akazsh Nasdhashurh.” Total War forum users worked this out to mean something along the lines of “the blood axe is coming to the battlefield,” but the exact translation remained controversial: some users thought it might indicate the Blood Knights, an elite shock cavalry unit coming (for free) to the Vampire Counts faction in the massive Update 1 scheduled to launch today. Others thought it might indicate the arrival of the Beast Men as a playable faction.

But with the leak of the Russian subtitled trailer, it seems clear that the runes mean one thing: battles in the Old World are about to get a lot bloodier. Just be prepared to shell out a few extra bucks when it drops.

Watch the trailer below:

LEGOTFA-2

Rey escapes while Finn infiltrates Starkiller Base in Chapter 8 of the LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens collectibles guide, where we track down the many minikits and red bricks scattered throughout the snowy planet the First Order calls home.

After a crash landing, Finn and Han Solo (with Chewie) fight through Snowtroopers to reach the base entrance so they can sabotage the giant facility’s reactors before Starkiller Base destroys even more planets. This is the just the start of your adventures in the huge Imperial facility, and there’s danger around every corner. Get a helping hand locating the collectibles of Chapter 8 with the tips and location info in our full guide below, and don’t miss out on all the other awesome LEGO walkthroughs with these handy links.

Chapter 8: Starkiller Sabotage – All Collectibles Guide | Red Bricks & Minikits Locations

Always replay stages on FREE PLAY to swap characters and access all areas of the level. There are 10 minikits and 1 Red Brick located in every story level. These levels can be replayed as often as you like, and no collectibles can be missed. Finding all ten minikits unlocks a new vehicle for purchase.

Minikit #1:

  • Location: Starting off easy, just shoot the five black Probe Droids that appear at the crash site in the very first area of the stage. More will appear as you play the level, but they won’t be hidden.

Minikit #2:

  • Location: Early in the mission, you’ll build a little hopping vehicle that can crush the LEGO snow piles scattered around the landscape. Stomp all the snow piles to find hopping bricks that build into a minikit.

Stud x4 Multiplier Red Brick

  • Location: This one should be easy to spot. To the left of the massive Starkiller Base entrance door, there’s a cliff where Snowtroopers spawn and hop down to fight your heroes. Use any character that can double-jump to reach the cliff and grab this red brick that’s visible in plain sight — if you’re having trouble, try building a Snowman on the left and using the poles to shimmy onto the ledge.

Minikit #3:

  • Location: In the same area as the Red Brick, go right along the back wall to find an access hatch. Enter the cave and defeat the Wompa monster before cutting through the LEGO ice with a lightsaber.

Minikit #4:

  • Location: Onto the ‘Starkiller Wall’ section, look for extra LEGO objects to smash to build four Resistance Flags. The first is on the ledge to the left of a bunker door at the start, the second is on the platform where you shut down the toxic exhaust ports. The last two are near the end of this section — one is toward the foreground to the left of the campfire, and the last is in the back-right corner from the campfire.

Minikit #5:

  • Location: At the very start of the ‘Starkiller Wall’ section, destroy the LEGO objects to the right and build a Hair-Dryer on the left side to melt some snow and get rid of the Snowtroopers waiting on the bunker door.

Minikit #6:

  • Location: Moving on to the door with the red energy field and two orange grapple anchor points, look right for an ice patch. Melt the ice with a Flametrooper to reveal a LEGO water pond. Dive in with Ackbar and you’ll appear on a cliff ledge with the next minikit.

Minikit #7:

  • Location: At the ‘Starkiller Shield Room’ section, use the force on the large access pipe on the left.

Minikit #8:

  • Location: Continuing on to a catwalk with orange strength handles, look left for a high ledge. Use Boba Fett or any other jetpack character to reach the minikit hidden in this alcove.

Minikit #9:

  • Location: Before rushing into the blaster battle hallway, look right for a door you can open with force powers. Tear the door open and go inside the foreground room to grab a hidden minikit.

Minikit #10:

  • Location: The last minikit is found during the blast battle. Target all four tiny rolling mouse droids — they’re like little black boxes on wheels and scurry between the cover spots.

Jim Ryan Believes “Uncertainty Is Liberating In Many Ways” For PlayStation VR Developers And Publishers

PlayStation-VR

With only a few months to go and a solid launch games lineup, Sony’s PlayStation VR looks promising.

In a recent interview with MCV UK, PlayStation’s Global Head of Sales and Marketing Jim Ryan explained that the difference between PlayStation VR and the other virtual reality headsets is the uncertainty. However, he sees that this uncertainty can be quite liberating for some developers as well as publishers.

“The truth is we don’t really know, because VR is such a different proposition. We are very intrigued about VR, but there is so much we won’t know until we get out there and see what people enjoy. Uncertainty is liberating in many ways. There is no trodden path that developers or publishers feel obligated to follow. Everybody is doing things a bit differently, and that’s great.”

He also mentioned that PSVR might help increase PS4’s cycle longevity, and compared its sales to the PlayStation 2.

“It could definitely enhance and prolong the lifecycle that we are in the middle of, whether it has the potential to take PS4 to the heights of mass-market acceptance that we saw with PS2, I am not sure about yet. It is easy to forget that PS2 was retailing for £99. With PS4 you are going to have to spend £300 on a PS4 and a further £350 on the VR set. We are quite proud of the price point we have been able to achieve relative to other offerings, but there is a gating factor of price and to what extent that allows us to get into the mass market remains to be seen.”

Do you think PlayStation VR can actually help increase the PS4’s life cycle?

Test : Mario & Sonic aux JO de Rio (Wii U)

Les Olympiades se suivent et se ressemblent beaucoup pour Mario & Sonic, qui ne font ni mieux ni moins bien sur cette édition 2016 à Rio de Janeiro. On retrouvera une fois encore le même panaché de mini-jeux, revus à la baisse, parfois à peine retouchés, mais avec de rares inédits qui valent le détour, à l’image du Rugby arcade, vraiment sympa à prendre en main. Le retrait des contrôles gyroscopiques à la Wiimote garantit un contrôle plus précis sur les différentes épreuves, ce qui est toujours ça de pris pour les chasseurs de records et ceux qui voudraient faire le tour d’un mode solo maigrichon et pas franchement rythmé. Bref, une nouvelle édition correctement ficelée, mais pas de quoi…

Once again, you’ll take to the skies with an X-Wing during certain sequences, so watch out for cool stuff to destroy — it’s always a good idea to destroy anything that looks like LEGO in these games. We’re almost at the end, only one more main story mission to go! Buckle up and prepare to save the galaxy in style while earning 100% completion on Chapter 9.

Chapter 9: Destroy Starkiller Base – All Collectibles Guide | Red Bricks & Minikits Locations

Always replay stages on FREE PLAY to swap characters and access all areas of the level. There are 10 minikits and 1 Red Brick located in every story level. These levels can be replayed as often as you like, and no collectibles can be missed. Finding all ten minikits unlocks a new vehicle for purchase.

Minikit #1:

  • Location: The stage starts with Poe Dameron in the skies — flying through a trench in the mountains, watch for a blue ring on the right with this minikit.

Minikit #2:

  • Location: When things open up a little more, look on the outer towers of the huge installation to spot a blue race marker. Fly through the ring and follow the checkpoints, hitting them all before the time runs out, to earn your second minikit.

Minikit #3:

  • Location: Switching over to Rey as she attempts to escape, you’ll reach a point where Rey needs to build a ladder. Don’t build it — instead, construct to the left to shut down the red forcefield door. There’s a minikit inside with a couple valuable studs.

Minikit #4:

  • Location: Next, build the ladder and climb up. Then use a hover-jetpack hero or villain to fly left over the drop to discover a door that can only be opened with Dark Force powers. Tear that door open and grab the minikit located in the room.

Minikit #5:

  • Location: This one is easy — when Rey reaches the climb-able wall, instead of climbing up and turning right, just climb all the way up to the ledge containing this minikit.

Regenerating Hearts Red Brick

  • Location: After constructing and powering-up the LEGO elevator to reach the upper level, move into the foreground and look right fight a grappling anchor spot. Switch to any character with a grappling hook. To the right, use the terminal and match the Stormtrooper pieces together. 15 Stormtroopers will appear in the room to the right — defeat them all to earn a red brick.

Minikit #6:

  • Location: In the ‘Oscillator Interior’ section of the stage, right from the start, look in the back corner to the left of the main (large) staircase in the center of the chamber and enter the access hatch. This leads to an alcove containing a minikit.

Minikit #7:

  • Location: Further ahead, you’ll need to build a LEGO panel with an orange strength handle — this is the area with the red forcefield on the left that can only be deactivated with the small droid. Build over the box on the right instead to open the door and gain one more minikit.

Minikit #8:

  • Location: In the same room as Minikit #7, destroy the four lamps closest to the foreground. Three are in the room with Minikit #7, and the fourth is to the left of the red forcefield you’ll need to shut down as part of the main progression story path.

Minikit #9:

  • Location: After shutting down the red forcefield, blast the gold panel in the background to get hopping breaks that build one minikit.

Minikit #10:

  • Location: Continuing through the level, you’ll reach a grapple point. Zip up and stop before using the grapple anchor point on the left. Instead, use the Protocol Droid terminal on this platform to open the door, then swap to a character that can survive the toxic green gas.

Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens has J.J. Abrams as a playable character

The magic of Legos can bring any movie or character to life. And with the new Lego Star Wars: The Force Awakens, that now applies to the behind-the-scenes folks as well.

Director J.J. Abrams and Producer Kathleen Kennedy have been added to the game as playable (via Kotaku). Both characters are quite adept with blasters and can offer troop commands.

This isn’t the first time Lego has “added” characters to their movie tie-in games. Stephen Spielberg and director Colin Trevorrow were unlockable in Lego Jurassic World. And DC Comics president Geoff Johns and Batman artist Kevin Smith were unlockable in Lego Batman 3.
