Hear Kylo Ren Speak for the First Time

Warning: potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens below.

We’ve heard Kylo Ren speak for the first time, and he had some very interesting things to say, especially when it comes to the Jedi.

Until now, Ren – one of the key antagonists in Star Wars: The Force Awakens – has been surprisingly quiet, not speaking in any of the trailers released so far. But with the Star Wars toys about to go on sale, we got to play around with the talking Kylo Ren figure which recites multiple lines from the upcoming movie.

Here’s every phrase we could coax out of him (if you watch above, you can hear Driver deliver the lines, plus hear Ren’s slightly synthesised voice):

Warning: potential spoilers for Star Wars: The Force Awakens below.

British actor John Boyega will play Finn with an American accent in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Some panting aside, we’ve yet to hear Boyega deliver a line. But the talking Finn action figure confirms the accent and reveals several cool pieces of dialogue from the upcoming movie (you can also hear Boyega recite the lines in character and in the form of a toy):

  • “The name’s Finn and I’m in charge now”
  • “We go back to Jakku, we die” (shouting)
  • “Stay low and put up the shields” (shouting)
  • “We need cover – quick!” (shouting)

Destiny’s Taken King Crucible Content is Free for a Week Before Release

As part of the Destiny patch releasing next week, Bungie is making The Taken King expansion’s PvP content available for free–for one week, according to the developer’s weekly update.

The two game modes include Rift–essentially a neutral capture-the-flag mode–and Mayhem, in which every character’s super ability charges extremely fast.

The Destiny 2.0 patch releases Sept. 8, bringing several changes to Bungie’s multiplayer shooter. Voice actor Nolan North is replacing the work of actor Peter Dinklage throughout the game. Destiny’s bounty system, light levels, and bounties are also getting overhauled.

The Taken King expansion releases exactly a week after the patch, on Sept. 15, along with story content and a new level cap of 40. Bungie shared details about the upcoming King’s Fall raid, which releases three days after the expansion, tasking teams of Guardians with descending into the Hive dreadnaught in pursuit of Oryx.

In the same update today, Bungie also announced it’s extending the Moments of Triumph until Sept. 14, giving players the chance to pursue their last few–or one–before The Taken launches.

GameSpot has a plethora of Destiny news and previews on the horizon, so stay tuned as the patch and expansion release.

Fallout Dev Wants to Make an Archer Video Game

Top 10 2014 - South Park

In 2014, Obsidian Entertainment put out one of the best licensed games ever made with South Park: The Stick of Truth. Working in collaboration with series creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker, South Park: The Stick of Truth managed to perfectly capture the feel and humor of the TV show. Not to mention the game earned critically acclaim, and even earned a spot on our Top 10 Games of 2014 list.

With the podunk mountain town of South Park conquered (and the sequel, The Fractured But Whole, being developed by Ubisoft San Francisco instead), Obsidian has been talking about other animated comedies they could give the video game treatment. Specifically, the developers at Obsidian have been discussing the possibility of making an RPG about everyone’s favorite animated spy, Sterling Archer, in an Archer video game.

Speaking in an interview with PC Gamer during PAX Prime, project director for Obsidian, Josh Sawyer, explained that the Archer video game they had in mind would be similar to a previous Obsidian RPG, Alpha Protocol. “I don’t think people really thought about it, or at least not seriously, until after Alpha Protocol shipped,” he said. “But it has come up actually several times of people saying, ‘yeah, that would be a good fit. Archer Protocol!’”

For those that don’t remember, Alpha Protocol was an espionage-oriented RPG that hoped to create a Jason Bourne/James Bond RPG experience. The game was a bit rough around the edges, but it did develop a cult following in the years since its release. One thing’s for sure, the game definitely had a sense of humor, which makes combining its gameplay mechanics with Archer all the more of a natural fit. As Sawyer explained:

Alpha Protocol has a very realistic look to it, but it’s also kind of silly —> Read More

Until Dawn Review “Intensely Immersive Horror Experience” | Power Up Gaming

Scott Russell writes: “In a horrific world of death and uncertainty, astute decisions are vital for survival. Wild animals should be handled with care, doors and windows should be approached with suspicion, and above all, close friends and despised enemies alike should be treated with the same level of scepticism. This is the world of Until Dawn, a domain in which player choice matters throughout a grand celebration of the horror genre. Clichés can be found in almost every part of this dark and blood-soaked tale, but they are embraced wholeheartedly as a key element in Until Dawns fantastically interactively dramatic. The teens getting slashed are immature, annoying, and are constantly trapping themselves within ridiculous situations; but, as a result, their story is a wholly authentic affair, riddled with enjoyable twists, atmospheric dread and an armful of satisfyingly gory deaths.” —> Read More

Video reveals the secret connections between Quentin Tarantino’s movies
