Hey Blissers! Did you have hopes of playing The Legend of Zelda Wii U this year? Well if you did I have bad news for you. Series producer Eiji Aonuma announced via Facebook video message that The Legend of Zelda Wii U would be delayed and will no longer be releasing in 2015. During the video, Eiji stated that the team had discovered new possibilities for the Zelda Wii U.  Below is what Eiji Aonuma had to say.

“Hello, Zelda fans! I am Eiji Aonuma, producer of The Legend of Zelda.

I’d like to share with you an update on our development process on The Legend of Zelda for Wii U. Since I declared at The Game Awards in December that the game would launch in 2015, the directors and the many members of the development team have been working hard developing the game to make it the best it can be. In these last three months, as the team has experienced firsthand the freedom of exploration that hasn’t existed in any Zelda game to date, we have discovered several new possibilities for this game.

As we have worked to turn these possibilities into reality, new ideas have continued to spring forth, and it now feels like we have the potential to create something that exceeds even my own expectations. As I have watched our development progress, I have come to think that rather than work with meeting a specific schedule as our main objective, and releasing a game that reflects only what we can create within that scheduled time, I feel strongly that our focus should be to bring all these ideas to life in a way that will make The Legend of Zelda on Wii U the best game it can possibly be.

So, I must apologize to you all that were expecting the game by year’s end, but we are no longer making a 2015 release our number one priority. Instead, our priority is to make it the most complete and ultimate Zelda game. I hope to use the added time to make The Legend of Zelda for Wii U into a game that will reward you for your patience, so thank you for your continued support”

The Legend of Zelda Wii U Delayed Out Of 2015

Sadly, The unnamed Zelda title will not be at E3 this year; however that does not mean that Nintend will not have a presence at this years E3. The last time a Zelda title was postponed, the end results turned out great.

Games with Gold for April 2015 http://www.gamersbliss.com/2015/03/26/games-with-gold-for-april-2015/ http://www.gamersbliss.com/2015/03/26/games-with-gold-for-april-2015/#comments Fri, 27 Mar 2015 01:50:26 +0000 http://www.gamersbliss.com/?p=23647 Last month Microsoft announced that they would be making April’s Games with Gold extra special by offering two times the normal amount of free games during the month of April.

Last month Microsoft announced that they would be making April’s Games with Gold extra special by offering two times the normal amount of free games during the month of April. The Xbox Community believed that this might be an early April fools joke by Microsoft to peek internist in other Xbox products and increase Xbox Live sales.

Earlier today however, Microsoft announced through the Xbox Wire what the free games would be for the month of April; it turns out that Microsoft was not kidding around and looks to be in the giving mode. Below is what they had to say about why they were giving Xbox live gold members double the amount of free games for the month of April.

“You might think April’s the perfect time to joke around – but we have no intention of doing that here at Xbox. Instead, we want to take a moment to appreciate you, the Xbox gamer. Over the course of the Games with Gold program, more than 100 million games have been downloaded, with over 5 billion Gamerscore earned. That’s countless hours in the shoes of iconic heroes like Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 2, Noble Team from Halo Reach and many others all free with your Xbox Live Gold membership.

Above all, we want to celebrate our fantastic Xbox Live community this April, and that’s why we’re so pleased to announce that Games with Gold will offer double the free games for April That means Xbox One gamers get two awesome new titles, and Xbox 360 gamers get a whopping four games! So invite your friends and clear your calendar for gaming!”

April’s Games with Gold offer seems to short change Xbox One members yet again, but at least they are visually pretty games. The free games through Games with Gold for Xbox One are: Pool Night FX ($13.99) and Child of Light ($14.99). Both titles will be available for the entire month of April, so encase you can not get your Xbox right away you will have the whole month to do so.

Xbox Live Gold member on the Xbox 360 will be excited to hear that they will be able to download four games during the month of April through the Games with Gold program for free. During the first half of April, Xbox 360 Gold members will be able to download Gears of War: Judgment ($19.99) and Terraria ($14.99). Terraria is a 2D arcade title similar to Minecraft. Gears of War: Judgment is often considered the worse title in the Gears of War franchise; however the game is still provides player with an interesting story and a cool game mode that allows players to play as the Horde against the Cog. Gears of War: Judgment and Terraria will be free to Xbox Live Gold from April 1st to April 15th.

Gamers will be excited to hear that the end of April’s Games with Gold will offer Xbox 360 users two newer games. The final two games for the month of April are: Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag ($29.99) and Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel ($19.99). Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag provides gamers with a great Pirate story while being one of the greatest games in the Assassin’s Creed franchise. Army of Two: The Devil’s Cartel is often considered the worst game in the Army of Two franchise; however we will let our readers decide what games they like and what games they dislike. The Devil’s Cartel and Black Flag will be available from April 16th to April 30th.

Remember you must be an Xbox Live Gold member in order to receive these games. Xbox 360 users will be able to keep the games they downloaded through Games with Gold even if their Xbox Live membership runs out. Xbox One users are not as lucky; they are required to keep their Xbox Live membership in order to play the game.

Two weeks ago news broke that one of the most popular franchises of  the last decade would be returning after taking a few years hiatus. After taking a four year sabbatical, Rock Band 4 will be debuting on current generation consoles. Brand manager Eric Pope had this to say about the release of Rock Band 4,

“It’ll be 1080p and will run at 60fps, I know there’s a vocal group of players that want to hear that. But what to me is more exciting is the online infrastructure of the consoles. It will open a lot opportunities for us to support the game in more reactive, timely ways.” Pope also stated that Harmonix created a new game engine specifically for Rock Band 4 which will be releasing in October later this year.

Rock Band 4 is supposed to run at 1080 p making stages, items and characters more life like. Currently Harmonix is planning to let players bring over their DLC from past games to Rock Band 4. Players will not be able to carry over the track lists from Rock Band 1 and Rock Band 2.

After the four years of being absent from the marketplace , Harmonix looks to reestablish the Rock Band franchise. So will players rock out with their friends on Rock Band 4 or will the lights burn out before the final performance.

Last week Platonic Games revealed their plans for Project Ukulele. Project Ukulele is planned to be the spiritual successor of Banjo Kazooie. Project Ukulele is currently the working title. Platonic games will be holding a kick starter in May in order to raise additional funds to develop the project further.

“Our team’s passion for our past games and the 3D platformer genre lead directly to the birth of Playtonic. Through Project Ukulele fans will finally get to see those pent-up ideas and passion become reality. Since the announcement of our studio the reaction from the community has been absolutely incredible. Through consultation with them we’ve decided to greatly expand the scope of our project with the launch of a Kickstarter program. By working together with fans we’re confident we’ll be able to create a game that not matches their expectations, but one which hops, flips and soars above them.”

Banjo teaser

During a panel at SXSW, Rare showed a kinect controlled Banjo-Kazooie game. After the images from the south by Southwest panel were uploaded to the web gamers everywhere were abuzz at the thought of a new Banjo-Kazooie title. Later Rare would state on twitter that the Kinect controlled Banjo-Kazooie demo was created specifically for SXSW.

Between Project Ukulele and the Kinect Banjo-Kazooie, Playtonic Games and Rare look like they might have an ace up their sleeve when it comes to creating a new set of titles for this generation of gaming. Hopefully the demo of a kinect controlled Banjo Kazooie will reemerge and be released sometime within the next two years. If not its own title, Hopefully Rare and Playtonic games will combine these two into one game were players can play as their favorite characters from Banjo-Kazooie in certain parts of Project Ukulele

Below are some images from both Project Ukulele and the Banjo-Kazooie demo.

When it comes to surprise characters in video games, video game companies try to keep a lid on all the surprises they have planned for a game, but sometime the word just gets out and once it does spreads like wild fire. Although there are non disclosure agreements, secret information can leak by mistake.

Today news broke that One of the greatest hunters in Sci-Fi movie history would be brutalizing competitors in Mortal Kombat X. Today the news broke that the Predator would be joining the cast of special characters that would be in Mortal Kombat X. Predator now joins Jason Voorhees and Spawn in Mortal Kombat X.

Earlier a post previewing Mortal Kombat X Premium Edition was posted the the Xbox Store. The preview said, “Kombat Pack grants early access to 4 new playable characters and skin packs. Stalk and slash your opponents as Horror Icon Jason Voorhees, or play as Predator, the Ultimate Hunter.”

With only 3 out of the 4 characters know who else might be in store to  join the Mortal Kombat X line up? Mortal Kombat X releases on April 14 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Keep fighting and remember to Finish Him!

In recent years sequels have either been a massive hit or missed their target market entirely, but one game started out strong just to fail after a few weeks. The game that started out strong selling a massive amount of copies on release day was Dead Space 3, but afterwards gamers were disappointed; they realized that Dead Space 3 was not like the previous two Dead Spaces that they had grown to love.

Although Visceral Games added a Co-Op feature to Dead Space 3, this one feature would be the only thing that Visceral Games would get right with Dead Space 3. Visceral Games made the game more about micro transactions rather than an enjoyable experience. Players had to craft their weapons from items they found throughout the campaign or could purchase items to build bigger and better weapons. The only nice thing Visceral Games did involving this procedure was by adding a scavenger bot to the campaign that would search for items while the played fought off waves of necromorphs.

Even though Dead Space 3 was not the box office smash that Visceral Games had hoped for, they are not ready to give up with the Dead Space franchise. Visceral Games employee Steve Papoutsis had this to say about the Dead Space franchise, “Many, many people here at Visceral Games have a warm spot in their head for Dead Space; There’s definitely a lot of interest internally for us to pick that up again at a future date.”

Visceral Games just finished creating the newest installment into the Battlefield franchise, Battlefield Hardline. With Battlefield Hardline complete the only thing that Visceral Games has on its plates is the Untitled Star Wars title so there is a chance for Visceral Games to produce another Dead Space title.

So will we see Visceral Games debuting either Dead Space 4 or even Star Wars 1313 at this years E3? We’ll just have to wait until June to find out

During the South by Southwest (SXSW) gaming convention panel, Tell Tale confirmed that they are currently working on The Walking Dead Season 3, however no date was announced during the panel. Tell Tale is currently working on multiple titles at the moment so the next season will release sometime between title releases.

Currently Telltale is working on an adaptation of Game of Thrones, Tales from the Borderlands, A Minecraft Story, and an unknown title. The next season of Telltales The Walking Dead may be a little complicated to produce, since at the end of The Walking Dead season 2 the player was left with one big choice that resulted in multiple endings.

In between the 1st and 2nd season of Tell Tales: The Walking Dead, a DLC was released to bridge the connection between the two. The DLC introduced some of the new characters that would be in Season 2. So will we discover what happened to those who disappeared during Season 2. Will it be 400 days part 2.

Will the third season introduce a new main character like the second season did or will clementine be the main focus of the third season. How will Telltale handle the multiple endings or will the try to tie it altogether and have whatever choice you made at the end of the 2nd one become pointless. The second season of Telltales The Walking Dead was not as critically acclaimed as the first season although the 2nd season was sadder than the first. Maybe we will get to see a trailer for Tell Tales the Walking Dead Season 3 at this years E3.

After the announcement of the Master Chief Collection, Xbox fans have started a petition to get one of Microsoft’s top franchises to be remastered for the Xbox One. Fans of the Gears of War franchise have taken to social media and change.org to create a petition called the Marcus Fenix Collection. In the petition, fans are requesting that all previous Gears of War games be remastered for Xbox One. They want this remastered version to run at 1080 pixels and 60 frames per second.

After the petition had been created, a video was made in order to raise awareness of the petition. After the video was created, supporters of the petition for The Marcus Fenix Collection shared the video with Phil Spencer, which resulted in him responding on twitter saying, “Nice video, well done. Great to see that Gears support.”

Over the last few months, fans have speculated what’s next in the Gears of War franchise after Rod Fergusson had stated that Black Tusk Studios would be working on the next generation of Gears of War Titles at last years E3. Although no official title has been announced by Black Tusk Studios, it is speculated that their project will either be Gears of War 4 or the Marcus Fenix Collection.

Either project could either make or break the Gears of War franchise, but the release of either The Marcus Fenix Collection or Gears of War 4 could increase the amount of Xbox Ones sold globally.

Hey Blissers! Last year at E3 we saw the rebirth of the Fable franchise, with the debut of Fable Legends. A few weeks ago, it was announced that Fable Legends would not only be on the Xbox One but PC as well. Last week it was announced that Fable Legends would be free to play. Since M.O.B.A. are currently very successful this move by Lion Head Studios seems like a great idea and may create a better longer lasting game. In the trailer, David Eckleberry states that he is excited to have Fable Legends on PC and Xbox One, because he wants to get his game out to as many people as possible.During the Video, David promises that Fable Legends will be three things: 1.Open, 2. Fair, and 3. generous.

Open means that the game will be available to download for free. He promises that it will be fair. Everything that will make you stronger and spell level has to be earned, not bought. The final pledge is to be generous. The developers at Lion Head Studios want players to enjoy Fable Legends, not only in game but in the community as well. They want you to have fun and love the community. Fable Legneds puts four  human heroes team up against one human player with the goal of fighting off monster hordes. The whole game will be free, but characters will rotate in and out weekly. Like other popular M.O.B.A games you will have to win or play to unlock different heroes.

So far Fable Legends looks beautiful and looks like it will be a lot of fun. Knowing that it will be free to play has guaranteed not only a larger community, but allow for players who have never experience Fable to learn about the Fable universe and potentially peak their curiosity with the goal of playing other Fable titles. There is currently an Beta for Fable Legends which players can sign up at FableLegends.com to enter the beta. If you get into the beta or just interested in Fable Legends, let us know in the comment section below. Like always have a game-tastic day and have fun while playing.

Hello there ladies and gentleman! Hello there ladies and gentleman! Are you ready to Rock? Are you ready to Rock? It has been over 3 years since the last Rock band game was released and children of all ages are excited to hear that Harmonix is planning to revitalize the Rock band franchise. The news broke today that Rock Band 4 is being developed and coming out sooner than one might expect; the current plan by Harmonix is to release Rockband 4 later this year (2015). . The last Rock Band and title was Rock band Blitz in 2012 and seemed to be the end of musical based games, but after a three-year hiatus Harmonix has decided to reenter the video game market for a new generation of consoles.

Harmonix will be working with manufacturer Mad Catz to produce all new equipment for Rock Band 4. Returning to the stage will most likely be the Rock band starter kit containing: a drum kit, guitar, and a microphone. Will Mad Catz create a new instrument to surprise the masses. Either way, Harmonix plans to make it so that players can bring their old Rock band equipment to Rock band 4, making it easier to get the band back together. Also don’t worry about the songs you have been purchasing over the last few years, Harmonix has stated that they plan to allow players to carry over all the songs into Rock band 4, probably through a DLC pass similar to past Rock band titles.

Either way this is exciting news and the closer we get to E3 in June the more information on future titles will be released; hopefully there will be a demonstration at E3 2015. With Harmonix reentering the marketplace with Rock Band 4, will we see the return of the Guitar Hero franchise?
