Naughty Dog and Dark Horse Comics have teamed up to bring folks a new art book which features concept art from various Naughty Dog games. Within this book there’s concept art for the upcoming PlayStation 4 game, Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. The low-quality images come to us through tumblr user Adorable Intergalactic Heroes.

Here is what the book says about these pieces of art:

“While one can never predict the future, we do know what our next project is going to be: Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. We haven’t revealed a great deal about the game just yet, but in the following pages we are sharing some never-before-released pieces of concept art from Drake’s upcoming adventure. We’re not going to spoil it for you, but rest assured: he and his companions will be traveling the globe again discovering secrets lost to history—and you might even discover some secrets about Drake himself.”

The pictures depicts Nathan Drake exploring a sunken city on an island. In one picture, he can be seen in an inflatable boat wearing underwater swimming gear. The pictures show some of the grand scale that we can expect to see in the final game.

Interview with Shuichi Kobori and Ippei Shiraki:

 

I have to ask the obvious question here: Why is Adam Sessler doing these videos? I thought he was done doing this sort of stuff, yet here he is, getting his video game journalism on. Very interesting. Someone needs to interview The Sess to figure this out.

The Evil Within will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on October 14.

Jumping to the PlayStation 2 era in this week’s Retro Recap with a look back to the 2002 sequel, Summoner 2.

One of the PlayStation launch titles in the first Summoner game, Summoner 2 gave a fresh sequel to a niche franchise that was very much overlooked by the masses. The game follows Maia, a goddess who have been reborn with a unique and powerful gift of transforming into guardians or summons. Combat is played out in real time, with a traditional approach of button combos and guarding mechanics. Summoner 2 also includes the customary RPG spell casting system.

The plot follows a classic RPG-like story element, set 20 years after the previous instalment, our protagonist, Maia, has been tasked with the restoring the recently destroyed Tree of Eleh, a once fabled deity which gave life to the world. Along her perilous journey, Maia encounters a number of weird and wonderful character who join her on adventure to restore the Tree to its former glory. For those of you who played the first Summoner instalment, a few familiar faces also appear along the route. Aside from the main attraction of the storyline, Summoner 2 also includes a side mission. Maia can directly influence the development of the kingdom she overlooks. By donating money and issuing political judgements, the world is shaped to fit this role, similar to the ever popular Fable franchise.

Are you aware of the fun facts this game provides? Well you will be shortly:

  • At a specific point during the game, you enter a secret area known as the “Hall of Blasphemers” which looks like an office building. This is actually the office of Volatile, the developers.
  • You can actually interact with the developer character models within this building as well as seeing a tornado with flying cows move past the windows. This is also the location where you can receive a large amount of money for helping to restock the fridge.
  • The game was ported to the GameCube a year after release, with updated graphics and improved title of Summoner 2: A Goddess Reborn
summoner2_001

I first picked up this title without actually playing its predecessor. An unusual move on my part, as I usually make it a rule to play games in release order, however, being the poor child that I was, I could not pass up the chance of pulling this out of the bargain bin at my local game shop for a mere 50p! (That’s less than a dollar to the folks over the pond). By far the best 50p I ever spent on a game, as Summoner 2 gave me many hours of entertainment, even through the gruelling latter stages where I was severely under levelled. Not only are the characters relatable, but with the surprising immersive story and addictive combat system, this would be a game I would very much like to revisit in the future. Fancy ploughing a fair number of hours into a much underrated PS2 RPG? Summoner 2 should definitely top that list!

Did you ever play Summoner 2? Did you even play the first Summoner game? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

I missed out on playing Demon Souls when it first reached the UK, and before its release over here I’d heard too little of the game to be interested in importing it from Japan. Then Dark Souls came out and was deemed the spiritual successor of Demon Souls, this made me avoid the game because I’d already missed out on Demon Souls. Then when Dark Souls 2 hit PC I figured it was time to try this new trend of tortuous gaming. I played the game for around an hour and was lost. I still plan to go back to it when I have time, but it’s clearly a game you need to get fully invested in to reap the rewards. Evidently Dark Souls is all about figuring things out for yourself with no hand holding, and feeling gratification once you’ve overcome an obstacle.

Bloodborne seems to carry over this formula for the most part, but the way in which it’s presented is far more inviting. The demo I played was short, but long enough for me to understand what developer From Software is going for. At the start of the demo I was able to chose from four different character builds; A swordsman, a heavy weapons expert, a mix of swords and heavy weapons and an agile character with light weapons. I chose the heavy weapons expert which also allows the use of a revolver.

Bloodborne Yharnam

Once the demo started I was placed in a dark gothic town named Yharnam, with no instruction of what to do. Visually the game is stunning, the lighting is really well done to the point that you feel the darkness of the environment when there’s no street lamps around. The environment was empty besides the giant men and monstrous creatures lurking around. Slaying the weaker enemies in the area gave me a nice feel for the controls. I say they were weaker enemies only because they were nothing compared to what you face later in the demo. Even if they are weaker in comparison you still have to tread carefully, because swinging your weapons in an untrained manner will result in eventual death. Your timing and your ability to evade attacks will come into play a lot throughout this game, and that’s easier said than done when you’re facing multiple enemies at different angles.

 

After slaying the first few enemies I had my first slow moment. There were two gates which were locked, so I had to figure out a way to progress to the next area. Thankfully my delay in figuring out the way forward was more due to my slowness than the game intentionally trying to be complicated, which is usually the case with the Dark Souls games. Once I got to the next area the real challenge started, and I suffered my first death. It was here that I realized I had to approach combat with more tact instead of entering with pure aggression.

I didn’t make it much further, I’ve heard there’s a nasty boss in the demo. The fact that I didn’t even make it to him shows my lack of experience with From Software’s style of games, as well as the learning curve for new players. Still, even with the difficulty I never felt put off by the game, and I still want to play it. Dying only makes you understand what you have to do to be successful the next time.

Bloodborne Preview

Overall it was an extremely short demo, so its difficult to judge a game of this scope on with such little time. But from what I played I can tell this game will be popular to anybody who’s enjoyed the Souls games, particularly Demon Souls. As someone who hasn’t had much experience with the Souls games, I can honestly say I will be buying Bloodborne after playing this short demo. The difficulty makes me determined to keep playing, rather than deterring me completely.

With a new English dub featuring Monica Rial as Misaki and David Matranga as Usui!

/// Don’t buy Battlefield: Hardline at launch, says ex-DICE designer – “wait for the reviews”

Ex-Battlefield designer and current eSports coach Tim Kjell has just completed an AMA on Reddit, in which he writes at length about his work at DICE, EA’s track record as the internet’s favoured bogeyman, the thinking behind Battlefield 3’s class changes and much more besides. There’s an interesting series of thoughts on Battlefield 4’s notorious bugginess at launch, and the likelihood of Battlefield: Hardline enjoying a similarly rough landing.

/// Bungie responds to Destiny expansion content leak

Hey, Bungie Community.

I hope you had a nice weekend.

We noticed that you noticed that we already have plans for upcoming content packs in Destiny.

We do! They have activity names (which may or may not change) and we have a really good idea what they’re going to contain. They even have placeholder nodes in the Director, as you’ve already discovered.

But neither of the Expansion Packs we’ve announced are finished.

People at Bungie are hard at work to complete content for our first post launch pack, “The Dark Below,” as I type these words. It will be finished soon. It releases in December. Soon, we’ll detail it out for you so you can see exactly what we’ve been working on.

Thanks for playing. Thanks for the passion. We know you want details. We’ll talk more soon.

Kickstarter has had a solid few weeks of games, and this week is no exception. As with last week’s issue, I found some colorful games that are solid entries within their respective genres, although each one features a unique twist. Retro-Pixel Castles is a village-simulator that allows you to do all of the planning but leaves the building to the villagers. Bedlam is a post-apocalyptic RPG with a colorful, yet grimey art-style. Finally, Battle Chef Brigade is a cooking simulator with a pinch of zesty action.

Retro-Pixel Castles

Project by: Raymond Doer

Goal:$5,000

Current Funds: $1,817

One of the key features of a videogame, whether it’s an action game or in this case, village-building simulator, is empowerment. In real life, I’d be stabbed or shot if I picked a fight with anyone in Texas, and I doubt my capabilities of effectively building and running a city; in a video game, however, these anxieties are squelched. Raymond Doerr and his team, however, believe this empowerment is a detracting quality from village simulators, and he and his team created Retro-Pixel Castles in five months with one constant condition: the player will always lose.

In similar simulators, players have total control of every design aspect of their village; however, Retro-Pixel Castles requires players to place most of their faith in the villagers. The only thing that the players have any input is the planning of the village’s development;  the villagers themselves carry out most of the tasks and even decide who will perform certain tasks. As you can imagine, every plan may seem perfect at first, except not everyone will be able to follow-through with their part while keeping in line with your vision. In other words, things can and will go wrong.

The main issue between you and your utopia are the monsters who prey upon your villagers. No matter what, these creatures will devour every last citizen, and your village will soon become a ghost town; however, Retro-Pixel Castles gives you plenty of opportunity to improve. With every passing session, the game becomes more difficult, but you unlock more items and content that you can use when you draw the blueprints for your next village. Such content includes new buildings, buildings, units and your own experience. This should help players constantly refine their strategy, rendering the same tactics unusable.

Raymond Doerr is the one-man team (such a fitting last name) Retro-Pixel Castles is being built by a one-man team, apart from the soundtrack which is being composed by José Ramón “Bibiki” García. Raymond is developing Retro-Pixel Castles while simultaneously studying Psychology. I bring this up because while the game comes complete with full content and map-editors, I think the game will be most interesting depending on how much of Raymond’s education is reflected in Retro-Pixel Castles.

Bedlam

Project by: Skyshine Games

Goal:$130,000

Current Funds: $43,250

End: October 25, 2014

Even though it risks over-saturation, the post-apocalypse continues to be a fascinating setting. There’s a strange appeal to the collapse of society as we know it, probably because people like the idea of starting over with only their survival instincts. While there will be no shortage in post apocalyptic art or the consumers who enjoy them, it’s nice to know that games like Bedlam try to keep things visually appealing; in this case by using an art style inspired by 80s sci-fi comic books.

Bedlam is focused on exposing the grime that’s hidden beneath science fiction’s architecture. As technology advances, class warfare only continues to worsen, leading desperate men and women to perform risky jobs just to get by. The Mechanic, Bedlam’s gravel voiced protagonist, is one such man with a risky blue collar job, and he has the dangerous task of protecting the passengers and loot aboard the dozers from the bandits in the vast wastelands.

The dozers are moving fortresses that require a crew and a capable leader, that’s you, to operate, and you’re given only one crew and chance to travel to Bedlam safely. Combat, while turn-based, doesn’t use a turn-order, as you can choose to direct whichever unit you choose. While having a tactical mind is important for battle, you’ll also need to consider how you’ll outfit your dozer to survive the harsh climates of the wasteland. Throughout your trek, you’ll come across points-of-interests where you can find salvageable items; however, you’ll also risk radioactive storms and ambushes at these stops. As you can imagine, this game is a roguelike, which is fitting given its cruel, post-apocalyptic setting.

Apart from its eye-catching art-style, Bedlam’s appeal to backers lies within its team’s experience and the engine that they’re using. The team has worked on AAA titles such as Fallout and Skyrim. However, they’re using the same engine that powered a successfully funded game on Kickstarter, The Banner Saga, a beautiful game that our Editor-in-Chief, Richard Bailey, thought very highly of. You can see the potential for Bedlam in the engine alone.

Battle Chef Brigade

Project by: Trinket Studios

Goal:$38,000

Current Funds: $26,168

End: October 27, 2014

I live with many roommates who tend to watch reality TV shows, and, as someone who despises reality TV, I can’t help but think of ridiculous gimmicks to make each show more interesting. Jim Sterling once did a comedy bit on his podcast about how Gordon Ramsay should create a show where chefs fight each other in mortal kombat; while I wouldn’t want a show in which people risked their lives over something so senseless, I admit such a concept would make Kitchen Nightmares seem more interesting. However, such violence is welcome in the virtual world of Battle Chef Brigade.

Battle Chef Brigade should appeal to our food-porn obsessed culture as well as fans of action games. In this fantasy world, chefs of all races and species with the proper cooking chops  gather to compete in the deadliest, most hardcore cooking competition–Iron Chef and Kitchen Nightmares eat your hearts out. As with most cooking shows, contestants use the mandatory ingredients and concoct a hopefully delicious meal, under a time limit no less, and hopefully appeal to every judge’s exceptional taste buds. The only difference is that the ingredients are alive, combat-efficient monsters, and each chef needs to hunt them down in order to gather the necessary ingredients–as if the time limit weren’t enough (no pressure)!

What’s interesting about Battle Chef Brigade’s magic system is that it serves dual purposes: cooking and fighting. Learning the proper magic spells can literally be the difference survival and mastery of the culinary arts. Each chef also boasts a unique personality and a corresponding fighting style, such as the quick footed, knife wielding Mina and the sly, trap-setting Kirin. Of course, each personality will react to each chef’s personality differently, and judges come from unique races with a difference in preference for flavors. It’s a delicate yet fast-paced balancing act that sounds difficult yet rewarding to master–kind of like actual cooking.

Battle Chef Brigade is one of the few Kickstarter projects in which I have utmost confidence in. I have never heard of such an interesting concept, which makes it stand out from the rest of its competition. The team has years of experience testing the waters with smaller games, and it thankfully breaks down the cost–something that many developers should consider doing. While I realize these traits doesn’t exclude it from having problems, I’m sure Battle Chef Brigade will provide the magic touch that reality TV desperately needs.

The release of the PS4 and Xbox One versions of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor is upon us. Like all good games (and some bad games) that have come before it, Shadow of Mordor wants you to pre-order the game’s Season Pass content before it comes out.

Normally, pre-ordering Season Passes could be seen as a bad thing, because if the game turns out to be wack then it will probably end up getting traded in or sold with the quickness. Lucky for us,  Shadow of Mordor seems to be the Lord of Rings game that fans have be waiting for. More content for a good game is always welcomed.

The Koalition will have a review of Shadow of Mordor later on, so be on the look out for that. Until then watch the Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor Season Pass Trailer to see the additional content the game has to offer and click here to see the trophies and achievements to be earned in Shadow of Mordor.

In just over a month Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham will be hitting shelves and developer Traveller’s Tales are already in full hype mode. They have revealed Kalibak, Deadshot, Deathstroke, Music Meister and Polka-Dot Man as all new additions to the substantial roster.

You’d be forgiven for not recognizing every villain on the list. Admittedly, they’re not your average household super names, but with over 150 playable mini-figures included in the game, it’s unsurprising that Traveller’s Tales are calling upon characters from the expanded Lego universe.

One of the least known of new announcements, Polka-Dot Man is also one of the most interesting. Originally named Abner Krill, Polka-Dot Man wears a white suit covered in multicolored dots which, once removed, transform into a variety of devices that can aid his evil doing.

The new characters were revealed at a conference at EGX London 2014 with lead developer Arthur Parsons, in which he also discussed the recently revealed Playstation exclusive Batman Beyond DLC. Based on the animated Batman Beyond TV series, known as Batman of the Future in Europe, the pack will contain young Batman Terry McGinnis, an aging Bruce Wayne, and villains Bonk and Mr. Freeze among others.

The DLC pack should be available for both Playstation 3 and Playstation 4 owners free of charge at launch, while everyone else will have to wait a little longer to get their hands on it. The timed exclusivity will only be in effect during the game’s launch window, meaning the DLC should be available for all at a specified price come December.

Along with Batman Beyond themed DLC, Travaller’s Tales have already announced Man of Steel and Dark Knight DLC, based on the films of the same name, a 75th anniversary DLC and three other, as yet unannounced, packs. The season pass will include six of the packs, minus the Batman Beyond content, and will provide players with new levels, vehicles and over 40 new characters.

Lego Batman: Beyond Gotham will be released in the US on November 11th, and in Europe and Australia on November 14th.

Consider this 11th volume of The Playlist a…wake up call of sorts.

Over an incredibly sick beat from The Alchemist via Mac Miller’s underrated album Watching Movies With The Sound Off, Remus of BLVK BLVD puts listeners to task with “Top 5?” With impressive wordplay the UK emcee carries us lyrically through a braggadocios narrative you’ll rewind quite a few times, catching new things with each play-through. Fellow BLVK BLVD member Wize has been mentioned on The Koalition before and this collective is certainly on the come up.

With all of the buzz surrounding Kendrick Lamar’s new single “i”, I missed out on Rapsody dropping arguably the hardest track of the year. The Song of the Week goes to her 9th Wonder produced joint “Hard To Choose”, which a friend of mine forced me to sit down and listen to. I admittedly have slept on Rapsody for a minute, but her chemistry with 9th is on full display with this track and she drops some ill knowledge for sure.

With new Mick Jenkins, Childish Gambino, Tre Capital, and more, there’s plenty to check out on The Playlist this week. Share it with your friends and discuss your favorite cuts down in the comments below. Will you be checking for new music from these artists? Voice your opinions and help this compilation grow. Enjoy.

This just in, HOT off the presses! Gamepur has reported hackers have attacked servers for Destiny, Call of Duty: Ghosts and PSN! A group known as Lizard Squad have claimed responsibility for the down servers using DDoS attacks. This was made official through their Twitter account with the words:

This isn’t the first time they have successfully taken down the servers, Lizard Squad was also responsible for last week’s down servers and their at it again! Bungie is aware of the situation and are working on the problem as I type. Lizard Squad apparently is responsible for EA servers going offline just minutes ago:

This is obviously some sad news for those who are trying to enjoy their games, and who knows where Lizard Squad will strike next! I will try to keep you updated on this news as it happens. But for now, the reason is to just piss people off:

What is your opinion about this group and their attacks on the gaming industry? Let us know in the comment box below!

The security guard there told him the set was indeed for Batman v Superman. This information is not confirmed but, the same source later said he saw a movie trailer pull up with the “Alfred” on the side of it.

The source has posted photos nonstop since his discovery of the so-called Wayne Manor, but you never know! Here’s a video of a police car with the GCPD symbol that was updated on the site!

Much like WWE programming, the quality of wrestling games has been on a decline over the past few years. WWE ’12 claimed to be “Bigger, Badder and Better”, WWE ’13 promised a “Revolution” and the “2K” branding in WWE 2K14 implied nothing short of greatness! Unfortunately for wrestling fans, each of those games failed to meet expectation and were disappointments in the gameplay, audio and visual departments. With that in mind you’ll forgive my skepticism when Yukes vowed to right all of their wrongs with the release of WWE 2K15. But after sitting down with the game earlier this week, I can honestly say I’m starting to Bo-lieve.

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 12.25.02

The build I played at EGX only had four playable characters; Goldust, Cesaro, John Cena and Randy Orton. This is a far cry from the 60+ characters that will be available in the final game. I had hands-on time with Cesaro, Cena and Orton and was instantly blown away with how fantastic they all look. Yukes has partnered with NBA 2K developers Visual Concepts who has been working vigorously to track down and perform full facial scans on almost every Superstar in the game. They’ve also motion captured hundreds of wrestling moves in an effort to dramatically improve in-game animations. The result is a game that looks almost identical to its real life counterpart and is a HUGE step up from last year’s mediocre offering.

Yukes have also overhauled the counter-heavy gameplay system that has plagued their recent games and replaced it with a system that feels a lot more realistic. Instead of running towards the middle of the ring and exchanging suplexes as soon as the bell rings, each match now starts with a lock up and “feeling out” process as you’d expect to see on TV. Once you’ve locked up with an opponent, you’ll then engage in a Rock, Paper, Scissors-style mini-game in an attempt to gain the advantage and transition in to a head, waist or arm lock. While this may seem like a dull way to start a match, it makes pulling off your first suplex or DDT feel infinitely more gratifying. I’ll need to spend a lot more time with the game to figure out all the intricacies of the new gameplay mechanics but my initial impressions are rather positive. I loved how each match started with a foray of throws and strikes with momentum shifting back and forth, before being reduced to a sluggish brawl with both Superstars running off sheer adrenaline. Landing a finishing move at these moments felt great, especially when your own Superstar has to crawl to make the cover.

Screen Shot 2014-09-28 at 12.20.50

WWE 2K15’s improved visuals also extends to the game’s arenas and crowd. The jam-packed RAW arena looks just as rambunctious as it does every Monday night on the USA network and this year’s game features the best looking crowd I’ve ever seen in a wrestling game. I spent a bit of time trying to locate repeated character models in the crowd but was only able to spot one or two during entrances. Oh and while we’re discussing entrances, I was a little disappointed to discover that the animations for some intros were copy/pasted from previous games, but let’s be honest, most of us will just skip the entrances anyway. The demo that I played did not have any sound so I was unable to sample the “dramatically improved commentary” for myself, but the lack of JBL at ringside has me a little concerned.

We’ll have a lot more WWE 2K15 coverage including a full review in the coming weeks but playing this brief demo has me quite confident that Yukes will finally beat their decade-long underwhelming streak this November.

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to another episode of Baby and The Beard! We’re so excited to be a part of TheKoalition.com! On this weeks exciting episode, we dive into the mind of the merc with a mouth, Deadpool himself. Over the years since his creation, he has brought laughs to comic book fans around the world. Given all of the news that we’ve been hearing about the hilarious mercenary lately, we thought it was best to make him the featured character of the week. In case you missed it, below is the test footage from the Deadpool film that was revealed back in July.

But that’s not all we discuss this week! We also give a review for the much anticipated new DC Comics show Gotham. We also have news on X-Men, the upcoming seasons of Flash and Arrow, the announcement of the Supergirl television show and its synopsis, hints towards a multiverse event for DC, a Hobgoblin AXIS title, and much much more. Thank you so much for tuning in!

During this year’s Tokyo Game Show, we got to see a lot of new footage from the upcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The trailers showed us some of the new characters, environments and gameplay mechanics. It was all really cool stuff but since they were all in Japanese, it was hard to make out what was happening in them. This is no longer the case as two of the trailers are now in English so that everyone can understand what’s going on.

This first video is one which I speculated on a lot since we got a bit of a tease for it two weeks ago from mister Hideo Kojima himself. The sniper, Quiet, flies into Big Boss’ Mother Base and is almost killed by his men when Miller orders them to shoot her. Boss puts a stop to it and has Quiet sent to the prison. It turns out that she saved the Boss’ life but Miller doesn’t trust her and since she knows the location of MSF, he believes that she needs to die. Boss agrees but thinks that now is not the time. The video ends with him saying that when the time comes for Quiet to die that he’ll kill her himself.

 

The next video has another one of Big Boss’ companions. This one isn’t a human like Quiet however. It’s a wolf named DD. The video shows DD as a puppy who seems to have taken a real liking to Big Boss. After a time jump, we see the wolf all grown up and ready to be taken on missions. Like Boss, he has an eye patch to cover up his missing peeper.

 

It’s great to see footage of the game as we Westerners will experience it. The voice acting is top notch as always. It’s still a bit weird to hear Jack Bauer voicing Snake but Kiefer Sutherland does fit the role perfectly. It’s also cool to hear Troy Baker as Ocelot.

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Xbox 360 in 2015.

Along with Chance The Rapper and Vic Mensa, Alex Wiley has been one of the catalyst for Chicago’s absolutely domination of 2014. His 3 month old project Village Party still rides to this day and the Alex Wiley campaign continues forward with his consistently ill flow on “Sexual Dolphin”.

If you still aren’t familiar, wake up. You’re doing yourself a disservice. Alex has promised another project the year is out and you should be excited. Get familiar. Check the track, check out Village Party, and hit the comment section.

MMG artists rarely ever lack for incredible production and this time is no different. Rockie Fresh of Chicago hasn’t quite become a household name like the rest of his label mates, but he’s been doing his rounds with solid feature tracks for a good while. This track is a good sign he’ll carry his weight solo and I personally wish the track was a bit longer.

Off of Common‘s 10th album Nobody’s Smiling,  “Kingdom” was a pretty dope track where Vince Staples dropped easily the hardest verse over the No I.D. production. Now we have a new remix reminder that Jay Electronica STILL hasn’t dropped his sophomore project. Detox, another ghost album, was recently canceled altogether so let’s hope Jay doesn’t catch the same bug.

The verse here is par for the course for Jay Electronica (aka DOPE) and makes the lack of a full project all the more frustrating. Share your thoughts in the comments below…or simply vent your frustration. The choice is yours.

After dropping his first single statement “i” for his album-in-progress, Kendrick jumped right into a radio circuit with some freestyle promo. With Kendrick Lamar it’s never 100% sure if he had a prepared verse or if he’s coming off the top, but I personally think it sounds like a bit of both.

No album title or official ETA has been announced, but the current buzz will most likely lead to a reveal of some sort soon. Check this freestyle out and let us know what you think in the comments.

/// Assassin’s Creed Unity Season Pass detailed, includes China downloadable game

1411403969-acc-iconic-image-portrait-version 1411403969-acu-dead-kings-dlc-keyart
Ubisoft unveiled a season pass for Assassin’s Creed Unity today, and it includes a full standalone game. The pass costs players $30 and “opens up every piece of DLC” for the game, including Dead Kings, a story campaign set after Assassin’s Creed Unity. The full game available to Unity’s season pass holders is Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China, which has players hopping and skipping along the Great Wall of China.

Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: China is set in the 16th century Middle Kingdom and stars Shao Jun, a female assassin that trained under Ezio Auditore, star of Assassin’s Creed 2. Shao Jun previously appeared in the 2011 animated short Assassin’s Creed: Embers as well as the Assassin’s Creed Revelations novel by Oliver Bowden. It’s noteworthy that Ubisoft is opting for a female lead with the 2.5D side-scrolling platformer, as it suffered criticism for its growing lack of diversity in the past with Unity’s co-op multiplayer mode prior to its introduction of Elise, a Templar in the game.

Assassin’s Creed Unity’s season pass will also give players “over 30 new weapons, equipment and outfits” on launch day. The game will arrive on November 11 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, and the season pass content will all be released by early 2015.
