Google’s New Logo Is Far More Than Just A Digital Doodle

google-logo

The more you see something, the more normal it becomes.Today, Google unveiled a new logo and branding. So far the public reaction is a mixed bag.
I’m sure that most of the people who spend time in Mountain View working for Google barely noticed its logo anymore. It was on t-shirts, buildings, computers, stickers and everything in between.
Of course, people don’t like change. Read More —> Read More

Evolve Goes Free to Play on Xbox One & PC This Weekend

Evolve - Hank VS Goliath

When Evolve was released by 2K Games and Turtle Rock Studios earlier this year, there was a lot of hype and interest surrounding its gameplay. Unlike most competitive multiplayer games, which put an equal amount of players on each side, Evolve goes against the status quo, pitting a team of four human players against one player who controls a hulking, supernatural beast.

The player controlling the monster doesn’t necessarily have a huge advantage either, as the monster will have to eat in order to ‘evolve’ to gain new abilities and become even more lethal. While the four human characters will have to work together and think tactically about how they can bring the monster down.

That gameplay was certainly a different take on what most gamers had seen before but unfortunately, this was somewhat overshadowed due to the confusing nature of Evolve‘s downloadable content. Prior to release, Turtle Rock revealed several different editions of the game, each with different benefits to the buyer. As a result, it was difficult for players to figure out which one they should buy to get the content that they wanted.

That’s perhaps why Evolve is now hosting a free to play event this weekend; in order to show people what the game is really made of and win them over once more. Turtle Rock and 2K Games have explained that over Labor Day, Xbox One and PC gamers will be able to play the game for nothing. Players on these platforms will be able to try out four of the game’s monsters, 18 hunters, and 19 of Evolve’s different game maps, with Turtle Rock and 2K saying that DLC and season pass content will be rotated during the course of the weekend.

Xbox One players can begin playing from 12:01am —> Read More

Batman: Arkham Knight DLC 7 Reasons The Season Pass Is A Total Failure

WC

Did you know Batman: Arkham Knight is STILL not available on PC?

Way back in June it emerged the console versions had been prioritised by developers Rocksteady (for whatever reason, I dont know), so come release you had a fairly butter-smooth experience on both PS4 and Xbox One, whilst the PC release was a genuinely unplayable mess for the majority of players.

It resulted in Warner Bros. pulling the game from Steam to make amends, yet three whole months later checking the same sales page returns a prompt that proves its still not ready. —> Read More
