Last month’s Games with Gold program was exceptional. The Xbox Live community received Dark Souls and Street Fighter 4 for free in celebration of the Xbox Games with Gold program turning a year old. Earlier this month, Gotham City Impostors was free for Xbox 360 and Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition for Xbox One. This month features two arcade games for both Xbox 360 and One.

This is a sad month for the Games with Gold program because both arcade titles are older and have past their prime. However, this does revitalize the community for each title. The two other titles offered through the Games with Gold program for July are Battle Block Theater for Xbox 360 and Max and The Curse of Brotherhood for Xbox One. Both of these titles will be available until August 1st.

Max and The Curse of Brotherhood was released on may 21, 2014, so it is a newer title to be put onto the Games with Gold program. We here at gamesbliss.com feel bad for any unfortunate soul who actually purchased this game when it was $14.99, when the next two months the game would be free. Although Max and the Curse of Brotherhood is free right now; it is definitely worth its $14.99 price tag.

If you have yet to upgrade to the Xbox One and still have your Xbox 360, then Battle Block Theater is the game you can download for free through the Games with Gold program. Battle Block Theater released April 3rd, 2013 making it over a year old. The game is usually sold for $14.99  and provides hours of fun. Let the battle within your heart rage on and crush anyone that gets in your way.

Both of these titles will provide gamers with hours of fun and Max and the Curse of .Brotherhood will provide a compelling moving story. So enjoy this months Games with Gold titles. In order to download any of these titles you must have an Xbox live gold membership

In this world, what actions and deeds decide an individuals worth? What determines Manuel Noriega worth? What actions decide whether or not  an individual deserves accommodation or accreditation for a piece of work? Is someone entitled to compensation for either their depiction in a piece of work or for a character who resembles an iconic figure? When does visual depiction merit compensation and is someone entitled compensation if their likeness is used in a piece of work?

Over the last few decades celebrities and iconic figure have graced the entertainment industry with cameos in video games, movies, and even music. Generally, said figures would be compensated for their addition to whatever piece they contributed to. However, do Historic figures deserved to be compensated for their depiction even if they contributed nothing to the piece of work.

Within recent months, multiple cases have arisen in which a law suit has been filled demanding compensation for the use of their likeness within a video game. Recently news broke that former dictator Manuel Noriega is filling a law suit against Activision for the use of Noriega’s image to benefit financially from his likeness. Noriega appears in a Black Ops II mission called “Suffer with Me” as both an in-game character and in news clips.

Below is the news summary from Kotaku about Noriega’s Law Suit:

‘Courthouse News Service reports that Noriega, who is currently serving a prison sentence in Panama, is suing Activision, the game’s publisher, for “blatant misuse, unlawful exploitation and misappropriation for economic gain. The filing claims that Noriega, the plaintiff in the suit, is portrayed “as a kidnapper, murderer and enemy of the state. An objective of one portion of ‘Black Ops II’ is solely to capture plaintiff.” The lawsuit also claims that Activision’s use of Noriega in the game “caused damage” to him and created “the false impression that defendants are authorized to use plaintiff’s image and likeness. This caused plaintiffs to receive profits they would not have otherwise received.”

‘”Defendants deliberately and systematically misappropriated plaintiff’s likeness to increase revenues and royalties, at the expense of plaintiff and without the consent of plaintiff,” the suit continues. In the game, the characters in Black Ops II refer to Noriega as “a piece of shit,” “asshole” and “old pineapple face himself, Manuel Noriega.” Manuel Noriega is suing for punitive damages for lost of profits.

The ultimate question in the end comes down to do Historical figures deserved to be paid for the likeness although contributed absolutely nothing to the product. Personally we disagree with Manuel Noriega suing Activision due to the fact that he contributed nothing to the product. The only part that Noriega contributed to is History and is not History a free and open source to content? Noreiga’s depiction in Black Ops 2 was vastly fictional and does not warrant law suit.

Here is just one instance where Noreiga is depicted:

Doom Bots are Coming! Special game modes are not a new occurrence to the League of Legend’s community. Earlier this year we saw a variety of special events ranging from six man teams (Hexakill) to two teams composed of one the same champion (One for All). However this month’s event is unlike any within recent months. This month’s event is called Doom Bots, a mode in which the AI’s abilities are greatly enhanced resulting in quicker elimination of human life.

The Doom Bots mode is composed of  three different levels with the bots difficulty varying in level. Stage 1 the bots get a varying passive abilities. The first level is similar to playing regular opponents but with increased abilities. The final Stage is complete chaos. The only way to complete the level 5 stage is sufficiently holding towers and split pushing.

Most enemy teams are composed of Ability Power Champions. Once you play through one game of Doom Bots you unlock a summon icon. So if yo are looking for some challenging bots, then look no further than the Doom Bots; they may just make you cry. Doom Bots will be available from July 17th until July 27th. Below is the excerpt from the League of Legends website teasing the events that were about to unfold:

“You thought Brazil’s Veigar Bot was challenging? Think again! We’ve souped up the bots to DOOM levels, giving them mind-melting abilities that’ll blow you away. Thought Amumu was already emo enough? What if Amumu’s Doom Bot is so sad he makes all his nearby allies units CRY WITH DESPAIR, too? What if Ziggs’s Mega Inferno Bomb broke off into six MINI INFERNO BOMBS after landing, or if Lux’s Final Spark burst out in ALL directions around her? Each of the Doom Bots have had their abilities tinkered with, and things most definitely get crazy when they get aggressive.

Fight the Doom Bots and you’ll unlock harder difficulties. Bots with 2 Bombs respawn with Bonus Doom effects such as Anivia’s passive or Swain’s ultimate, while 5 Bomb Doom Bots carry TWO Bonus Doom effects and provide the most extreme challenge in this brain-bursting Featured Game Mode!

The Doom Bots of Doom will be cavorting around the Fields of Justice from July 17 to July 27, and you’ll unlock a Doomtastic summoner icon if you challenge them at least once!”

Homefront The Revolution Live Demo Preview Impressions http://www.gamersbliss.com/2014/07/16/homefront-the-revolution-live-demo-preview/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=homefront-the-revolution-live-demo-preview http://www.gamersbliss.com/2014/07/16/homefront-the-revolution-live-demo-preview/#comments Wed, 16 Jul 2014 16:49:19 +0000 http://www.gamersbliss.com/?p=23075 We got to view a Homefront The Revolution live demo preview during the E3 2014 show that took place on June 9th through June 12, 2014 .

We got to view a Homefront The Revolution live demo preview during the E3 2014 show that took place on June 9th through June 12, 2014 . Players waiting for a squeal to the highly presided Homefont of 2010 were thrilled to see the series returning, this time with a new publisher and of course a brand new story and characters. We got to sit down with the development team to get to see the game up-close and personal during a Homefront The Revolution live demo preview and bring the information we gathered from the showing straight back to you.

Taking place in a battered United States, players are plotted as resistance fighters to gain back their freedom. During the Homefront The Revolution live demo preview we got to see exactly what it meant to bring guerrilla warfare to a free roam Philadelphia. Why Philadelphia? Because of the love of the premises and the ability to bring never before seen landmarks to the virtual world of a war stricken video game. In this setting of Philadelphia, the enemy known as KPA has occupied the area in near full control for around 4 years. We find ourselves experiencing a growing resistance to fight off the deadly force that has been controlling the area for far too long. The irony that the game takes place in the birthplace of American Independence is the icing on the cake as it shows Americans fighting for new freedoms from the KPA soldiers.

Something that is new to the Homefront series that was seen during the Homefront The Revolution live demo preview was the real time day and night cycles as well as weathering. This game will be played in a free roam setting which seems very fitting for the goal of the plotline. You will be under the boot at the beginning of the game until you can work your way into becoming the core of a powerful resistance against this new brutality. You literally take the role of an everyday guy who begins utilizing guerrilla warfare tactics to win back the freedom for a nation occupied by the deadliest of deadly enemy forces. You will have to scavenge, you will have to build and reinvent technology. How cool is that!?

This is a game where you aren’t powerful, where you can’t just charge head into a fight and come out on top. You must learn from your surroundings and figure out a way that you could make your resistance crack a dent in the system of the all-powerful KPA.

From the action seen during the Homefront The Revolution live demo preview to the amazing plotline written by an award winning author; This game will be one to talk about. Publisher Deep Sliver and Developer Crytek is working hard to bring you a game that is new and innovated for gamers to enjoy. The Homefront The Revolution live demo preview proved that this game is a step in the right direction for the series. Stay tuned for out hands-on preview coming for Homefront the Revolution later this month and don’t forget you can get your copy of the game for PC, Xbox One, PS4 or Linux in 2015.

With a prize pool of over 10 MILLION dollars, The International Dota 2 Championships has become the world’s biggest gaming tournament. This is a big deal, whether you care about Dota or not, enough people cared, sponsored, donated, and played that the event has managed to raise over 5 Million dollars from fans alone.

Dota 2 International Tournament

$$ Dota 2 International Tournament $$

 

This is good news for everybody because eyes follow the money, and with this amount of money on the line, you better bet your bottom dollar that e-gaming is about to blow up in a big way. More tournaments, bigger prize pools, bigger celebrity gamers, and more potential to make gaming a viable career, rather than just a hopeless pipe dream reserved for the very skilled and lucky, though amazing skill is obviously still going to be a pre-requisite.

Dota 2 International Tournament 2014

Dota 2 International Tournament 2014

What brought about such enthusiasm in the tourney? Aside from Dota 2 being amazing and really coming into it’s own and taking the MoBA crown (IMO, feel free to disagree in the comments), this documentary on the first Dota 2 Tournament with a prize pool of 1 million certainly helped to get people excited:

It’s a feature length documentary produced by Valve and provides a great look at e-gaming culture, the whole thing is available for free on YouTube, so I suggest checking it out. On top of being an awesome story of the tournament, it is a well produced and captivating film that really deserves a wider release.

Another thing that helped was getting the community involved. I mentioned earlier that players donated, which is only somewhat true. As the game IS free to play, there are micro transactions, and they released something called The Compendium. The Compendium is a catalogue of the tournament, featuring brackets to fill out, team information, and more. The Compendium also comes with several items and extras for in game use, and the whole thing only costs 10$, with 2.50$ of that going towards the Dota 2 International Tournament prize pool. Combine perks, an amazing documentary, and a feeling of community and you have a recipe for the biggest e-gaming event in history.

There are even pages for people who have never played the game and no nothing about Dota, so check it out and get in on the online sensation.

The post The Last of Us Remastered – it Might not be Worth it appeared first on GamersBliss.

In somewhat recent news, The last of Us Remastered was announced and slated for release on the PS4. This is all good news for PS4 owners that have yet to play the game but a slap in the face to PS4 owners who bought the full priced game just a tad over a year ago. While we can argue that it’s always a good thing when a game releases we have pondered the question of if The Last of Us Remastered is part of that category.

What is bothersome about this release is that it is a cry for more money. A game that was already wildly successful just about a year old is setting itself for a re-release for another large chunk of change. What is the most upsetting about this is that it is a game that the developers were fully aware that next gen console where coming soon when it was being made but still decided to release the game and slate itself for a rerelease for more money just one year later.

Another unsettling fact about The Last of Us Remastered is the simple fact that they are considering a game that released just over a year ago to be refurbished enough to re-release. Yes, next-gen technology is considered better than previous gen but is that a big enough difference to make a game that is a year old worthy of a re-release? There are plenty of games that started up the generation of Xbox 360 and PS3 that would be far more deserving of a rerelease than The Last of Us and yet Sony feels the need to ride off the success of last year. Let’s look into the future of gaming and ask ourselves if rereleases of games only a year old is truly what we want to support?

Of course, The Last of Us Remastered is not the only game hopping on board with this trend as Tomb Raider already paved the way for this as well as a Grand Theft Auto V release. This is something we should see die down over the next while as the ‘next-gen’ consoles are still new but it is felt that The Last of Us is stepping over a very blurred line of purity. The PS4 is on top and for that they are getting away with selling and reselling a game to stay there instead of present players with the new stuff we crave.

At least there is no one forcing us to buy the game it is just disappointing to know that those who owned, loved and played this game on the PS3 who own a PS4 won’t get to have that same experience without a steep price. Wait to show love to those who didn’t support you in the beginning with The Last of Us because those who did are now getting the short end of the stick.
