Titanfall 2 Shows Off New Titan Classes in Promo Video

Jun 20, 2016 - 9:18 AM - by dgstorm

Here's the latest plug from Microsoft regarding the Titanfall 2 sequel coming out this year:

"We’ve got a lot of fond memories of jumping into massive mechs and causing some epic destruction in Titanfall, one of the most popular games to launch on the Xbox One. If you, like us, have a big, war mech-shaped hole in your heart needing to be filled, then Titanfall 2 couldn’t be coming at a better time.

At E3 2016, EA and Respawn Entertainment showed off some of the new features coming to Titanfall 2, most notably the new Titan classes. Instead of a fully customizable Titan, players can select between six different Titans with their own skills and strengths. Soldiers, too, are split into classes, and finding the right combination of the two can mean the difference between victory and defeat.

At E3, two of the six new Titans were available: the laser-canon-toting Ion and Scorch, who bombards enemies with incendiary rounds — and also packs a nasty flamethrower. They showcase very different play styles and strengths, making Titanfall 2 feel more like a class-based shooter than a traditional FPS with mechs.

Titanfall 2’s new grappling hook is one of our favorite things about the game, allowing players to hook themselves to nearly anything. Latching onto a Titan, climbing atop it, and ripping out a battery is pretty thrilling. A well-timed grapple can even turn an ejecting pilot into a well-placed sniper by zipping them over to an otherwise inaccessible rooftop. Combined with the wall running, the freedom of movement offered is pretty incredible.

While we didn’t get to see it, the promise of a full single-player campaign for Titanfall 2 has us pretty excited. It follows a pilot who is trapped behind enemy lines, and Respawn is working to make the experience feel different from standard FPS story modes.

Fortunately, we don’t have too long to wait to learn more; Titanfall 2 launches on Xbox One and Windows PC on October 28."

Xbox Branded Pot in the Future? Microsoft Invests in a Legal Weed Startup

Jun 17, 2016 - 10:18 AM - by dgstorm

Microsoft just invested in a startup company called "Kind." What makes this newsworthy is that this company's purpose is to track marijuana plants from "seed to sale," and help legal dealers comply with laws. Yep... it's a legal pot company. Microsoft can do this because the sale of marijuana is legal in Washington state.

The fact that Microsoft has taken this step is a potentially big risk, but could open a doorway to legitimacy. Most banks and conglomerates in corporate America still see the legal weed industry as sketchy at best. Now that one of the largest tech titans in the world has taken that first plunge, we might see the reluctance begin to fade as more corporations see the potential for profit in that industry.

It isn't likely we will see Xbox branded pot available anytime soon, but it's still a bold move for the company, and could lead to a larger acceptance across the country. Here's a statement from Microsoft's Kimberly Nelson, "We do think there will be significant growth. As the industry is regulated, there will be more transactions, and we believe there will be more sophisticated requirements and tools down the road."

Sea of Thieves is a Cartoonish but Cool Pirate Simulator

Jun 17, 2016 - 9:43 AM - by dgstorm

Here's an interesting looking game coming to the Xbox One. It's called Sea of Thieves and even though it has a cartoonish graphical aesthetic, that actually adds to the appeal of this intriguing pirate simulator. Here's a description from Microsoft:

"Sometimes games are so charming and full of life that they transcend their gameplay, becoming immersive, social experiences that are more about the people around you than which button you’re pressing. Sea of Thieves is exactly that kind of game. It’s a game that was just as fun when we succeeded as when we epically failed.

Simply put, Sea of Thieves is a game about being a pirate, and everything that comes with that — and it’s a shared-world game where you’ll encounter other crews of players. In our E3 demo, three crews of pirates explored a shared patch of island-dotted sea, and were given the freedom to do whatever they wanted.

So we did just that.

We hopped onto a ship, raised anchor, lowered the sails, and set off on adventure. Finding an island that looked like it might contain treasure, the crew disembarked to explore. We watched the sunset from the top of a mountain and drank grog. Then we busted out our musical instruments and played a sea shanty version of Rise of the Valkyries.

And that’s when another ship showed up and attacked.

Still wobbly from the grog, we clambered back onto our ship, our captain barking orders to raise anchor and man the cannons. A full-on battle had broken out, cannonballs pummeling down on us. When the hull got damaged, someone needed to head below to board up the holes in hopes of preventing the ship from taking on water. We constantly had to communicate with the whole team because there was so much that needed to be done simultaneously. It’s hard to imagine being able to even play Sea of Thieves with fewer than four players on your ship, though Rare says the game will support smaller, one-to-two-person ships.

Unfortunately for our crew, the assault from the rival ship was too much, and as we took on more and more water our ship listed to the side and began to sink. We abandoned ship, and watched as our beautiful vessel sank to the depths of the ocean. So we swam to shore to resume drinking and playing music on an idyllic beach. The chaos of the whole experience added to the fun, and showcased how Sea of Thieves can be a game that’s as calm or as crazy as you want to make it.

With just this small taste of what Sea of Thieves offers, we’re already having an amazingly fun time. With no release date set yet, Sea of Thieves may be a ways off, but this is an extremely promising early look. We can’t wait to try our hand at swordplay, bury some treasure, find a port town to drink more grog in, and do all the things that come with a pirate’s life on the high seas."

Microsoft's Latest Forza Horizon 3 News

Jun 16, 2016 - 9:57 AM - by dgstorm

Forza Horizon fans who are clamoring for the next game in the series might have their interest piqued by Microsoft's latest news regarding the game. Here's the teaser from the folks in Redmond,

"Ever wanted to take a spin on the sun-drenched highways, beaches, jungles, and country roads of Australia, but can’t stomach long flights? Microsoft Studios and Playground Games have you covered – Forza Horizon 3, the touring-car companion to the critically acclaimed racing simulation Forza, is set in the Land Down Under, bringing you beautiful locations and even more beautiful automobiles to drive. This time, in addition to the bevy of supercars and trucks, Forza Horizon 3 will offer players a shot at true off-roading with buggies and jeeps, as well as plenty of off-the-wall racing challenges.

At the Xbox Showcase at E3 2016, we got hands-on time with the game and, right out of the gate, the controls felt as solid as ever. Driving the cover car – the Lamborghini Centenario – not only feels fast and powerful, but it’s easy to pick up and play. You don’t need years of expertise in driving simulators to have a blast here, even if you’re driving the supercars; the game has the optional driving line superimposed directly onto the road, so it’s easy to learn proper braking, turning, and acceleration, and you can spend your time enjoying the absolutely gorgeous scenery.

When you’re done tooling around, though, Forza Horizon 3 will present you with a series of challenges. At the Showcase, we had the chance to take a dune buggy and race against a classic military jeep – the twist being that the jeep was being carried by a cable attached to a gigantic Chinook helicopter. This type of racing challenge is typical of the Forza Horizon series, and gives players a chance to take the world’s greatest (and some of the not-so-greatest) cars and put them into unusual situations without stressing about split times, all while enjoying some sweet tunes on the game’s many integrated radio stations.

Forza Horizon 3 will also feature up to four-player co-operative gameplay, allowing players to seamlessly jump in and out of their friends’ games, with each game syncing up in real time to match the host’s time-of-day, weather, and traffic conditions. Friends can take on challenges together or challenge each other to races – but of course, if you’d prefer to simply drive through the many realistic, Australian locales, such as the Great Ocean Road outside Melbourne, you can do that, too, in a huge variety of unlockable vehicles.

Coming this September 27, Forza Horizon 3 will be one of the first titles released in Microsoft’s Xbox Anywhere program, allowing cross-platform play on both the Xbox One and Windows PCs, seamlessly, across the globe."
