The Fine Bro’s Attempt to Monopolize Reactions

The Fine Bros are a YouTube channel that specializes in YouTube reaction videos. They have been very popular on the internet. Earlier this week they announced there new network “React World.” This is a network where basically people make reaction videos and pay them a share of the profits. This would normally just be a bad idea, but then they started taking down other peoples reaction videos. Continue reading “The Fine Bro’s Attempt to Monopolize Reactions”

EA Announces Game Lineup For 2016 and Early 2017

A few days ago EA released information about it’s upcoming game lineup for 2016 and early 2017 in a share holder press conference. They announced some very exciting new games to come. EA has always released great games (Even if they are sometimes a bit shady). So i’m really excited.

First off they released there expected sports games (Madden, Fifa, etc.). Which is expected but kind of boring. I wish they would just focus on legitimate games instead of overpriced re-skins, but EA loves money so that’s not happening. Theres nothing surprising here. There as expected also going to release a new battlefield game as they always do. They also announced a new Plants vs. Zombies Garden Warfare game, for the 5 people who care.

They also announced they will be releasing Titanfall 2 sometime this year. I liked the first Titanfall game and I hope this one will be good too. EA has said that they plan to release this for more platforms than just the Xbox One and Xbox 360. It is also rumored to have a full single player campaign. I don’t know about the last one because even though the world of Titanfall is interesting and probably has some great stories that could be told in it, I don’t feel like Titanfall needs it. Some games like Battlefront defiantly need a single player campaign (seriously how did they screw that up). But others like Titanfall don’t need one. There are very few first person shooters that would actually get people to play campaign (Battlefront), and Titanfall doesn’t seem like one. I think they should just stick to multiplayer, and have a massive amount of multiplayer content there.

Voilition Reveals Cancelled Saints Row Game

 

Earlier this week Volition released a beta for a cancelled Saints Row Game. This was going to be called Saints Row Undercover for the PSP. According to Voliton. they originally planned to just port  Saints Row 2 but they found the game was to large for the PSP. They then decided to just make a new game all together. Since Volition doesn’t make portable games they hired an unnamed other developer to make it. The game didn’t live up to THQ, there old publisher, or Volition’s standards so they cancelled the project

Some of the developers were looking back on the archives and found a PSP dev kit. Since none of them remembered ever working on a PSP game they started talking to some people who had worked at Volition for a while and found a early model of the game titled “Saints Row Undercover”. They found that game actually had a character customization system, a tutorial level, and a full open world. This is a lot for just a test model. When they mentioned showing it to the public to some other people at Volition, they responded “You can’t show that it’s unfinished.” When hearing this they started to question why they couldn’t. They decided that Saints Row fans would wan’t to see this. With that in mind they convinced the higher ups at Volition to let them show the game to the public.
