    • Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X Top Google Searches

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      2017 was definitely a big year for the video game industry -- not only because of all the great games we've gotten to play, but also because of the release of two brand new consoles thanks to the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X. If there was any question as to whether or not these systems actually made a splash, look no further than Google! 


      The company released their annual search report this week, detailing some of the most searched-for terms on the entire internet. And it seems that both the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One X were in the top 5 search terms for consumer technology -- at number 3 and 5, respectively. That's fairly impressive in a category that is normally eaten up by smartphones (and for reference, the other 3 items were the iPhone 8, the iPhone X, and the Samsung Galaxy S8). 


      Considering what we know about the Switch, all that consumer interest has definitely translated into loads of sales. We're still waiting on Microsoft to release some totals for Xbox One X -- but this is another pretty good indication that consumers have been very much interested. 

    • How Many People Watched The Game Awards

      1 day ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Some of the early numbers are in for last week's Game Awards -- and it looks like this was a record year for the show. According to the organizers, 11.5 million tuned in to check out the ceremony this year, which is way, way up from 2016's event. That show brought in just 3.8 million in comparison, which makes this a 202% jump. As for some other stats released about the awards, it seems more than 70% of the viewers on Twitch interacted by voting, and Steam viewers clocked in at around 70 minutes of watch time each. 


      So hey, great job on getting watched by lots of people this year, Game Awards. We look forward to the trailers, announcements, Death Stranding trailers, and memes waiting for us in 2018. 

    • Kojima Dishes Out Tons of Death Stranding Info

      2 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      After multiple super confusing trailers, it looks like Kojima is dishing more on his mysterious game, Death Stranding. In a new interview with IGN, Kojima reveals tons of cool lore and gameplay details... like the fact that the underwater sequence seen in the most recent trailer is actually the game over screen? 


      Yeah, apparently so. Kojima says when you die, death isn't the end. Rather, you hang out in that purgatory type space and can collect items or go back to your body, during a countdown timer. Once you go back, the game doesn't reset you to before the point you died -- you pick back up in the game world. He also commented on the rain that seems to age people -- it's apparently called Timefall and it's super important to the story and lore. And if you're wondering where this new trailer falls in with the actual game, Kojima revealed that it's pretty close to the game's prologue, and happens fairly early on. 


      So yeah... maybe that'll make Death Stranding make some more sense for you. Or not. There's actually plenty more to read about in the IGN interview, and I highly recommend giving it a read -- it also goes into Kojima's love for fan theories, and some of the struggles they went through because of the recent voice actor's strike. 

    • Far Cry 5 Delayed

      6 days ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Looks like you'll have to wait a tiiiiiny bit longer to play Far Cry 5. Ubisoft announced today that the game will be delayed. Don't worry, though -- that delay won't be too terribly long, as the game is moving from February 27, 2018 to March 27, 2018. 


      According to Ubisoft: "the extra time will allow the team at Ubisoft Montreal to make some additional improvements that will bring the best, most ambitious Far Cry experience in line with the team’s original vision. We’re excited for fans to join the Resistance in Hope County, Montana against the Project at Eden’s Gate cult."


      While it's no doubt disappointing for fans that the game will be out a tad later, it's probably also a tad disappointing for Ubisoft. Not only for the obvious reasons, but because this likely puts them that much closer to the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2. Previously, they'd said they were happy that Red Dead Redemption 2 being pushed out of 2018 was great for them and gave their games more space to breathe. 

    • Lots of PlayStation Stuff Discounted for Holidays

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Forget Black Friday and Cyber Monday, now looks like the time to save big on PlayStation hardware. Sony just announced that they'll be doing some special discounts from December 10 through December 16 on PS4 Pro and PSVR. 


      The PS4 Pro is getting $50 knocked off, making it $350 instead of $400, with bundles dropping from $450 down to $400. Meanwhile, the PSVR is getting mega cheap -- the Gran Turismo Sport bundle will now be just $200 (down from $300), while the Doom VFR and Skyrim bundles will similarly get $100 discounts, down to $300 and $350 respectively. 


      Considering PlayStation already had record-breaking sales for the console's history over the Black Friday shopping weekend, it'll be interesting to see if the system keeps moving units just as quickly throughout the holidays. 

    • Something Portal Related Rumored for Game Awards

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Um... say what? 


      There are tons of rumors swirling around the upcoming Game Awards, ranging from a Death Stranding appearance to Nintendo announcements... but one of the most intriguing rumors has to do with a franchise -- and to be honest, a developer -- that's been dormant for quite sometime. According to Superbunnyhop, there could be something from PORTAL revealed during the ceremony. 


      Superbunnyhop tweeted: "Hearing rumors from a gamedev friend about some Portal *thing* being revealed at the game awards Thursday. Crossing my fingers that they're right, though any Portal anything might feel off without Wolpaw's writing." He's of course referring to Portal writer Erik Wolpaw, who left Valve back in February -- one of several writers they've lost in the last year or so. 


      Either way, the prospect of seeing something out of the Portal universe is certainly exciting -- although given recent history, it's more likely that this is some kind of VR project, similar to The Lab. Still... maybe we can hope for some kind of full game experience? The Game Awards air on Thursday, December 7. 

    • EA Fixing Battlefront II?

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      If you're a Battlefront II player already tired out by the game's grind, it looks like there might be some celebration in order -- DICE and EA are starting to release updates to tweak the game's progression. 


      DICE outlined the newest update in a blog post today. Most of the changes to the game have to do with progression -- namely, how many credits you earn for accomplishing certain tasks. To start, they've said that the credit payout at the end of rounds is increasing -- and you can thankfully farm three times more credits in Arcade mode than you could previously as well. In addition to that, the developer revealed that the daily loot boxes you're awarding just for signing in will now award you with more crafting parts. 


      According to the team, this is just the first in a series of planned content updates. They wrote: "Thank you again for your passion around this game. Star Wars™ is special to all of us, and we all want to experience that world in fun, exciting ways. If you're already playing the game and are loving it, we want to thank you for taking the time to do so. We have a lot planned, and are excited to show you what’s to come.

    • Jak and Daxter Series Hit PS2 Classics Next Week

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      Good news, Jak and Daxter fans! PlayStation just announced that in addition to the first game, they're adding the rest of the classic series digitally to PS4 next week. 


      In a new blog post, the company announced that Jak II, Jak 3, and Jak X Combat Racing will all be landing on PS Store December 6, bringing you classic gaming goodness just in time for the holidays. PlayStation wrote: "The narrative tropes Naughty Dog explored in Jak and Daxter laid the foundation for the evolution of their highly innovative story telling. It put them on the path that led to the creation of future blockbuster franchises like Uncharted and The Last of Us— and to think it all started with giving Jak his own voice."


      While I haven't played Jak 3 and Jak X Combat Racing, I do have very fond memories of Jak II on the PS2. At the time, it did some open world concepts that were fairly new at the time, but are pretty commonplace now in terms of game structure. It's definitely worth checking out if you're into that kind of thing and need a new classic to play. 


      Also, seriously Naughty Dog -- when is this series coming back? 

    • Motive Says They Weren't Held Back By Frostbite

      1 week ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      EA's proprietary Frostbite engine has become something of a whipping boy amongst the publisher's harshest critics -- it's been rumored to be the cause of technical issues associated with some high profile games.


      However, one developer is speaking in defense of the engine -- Motive, who worked on Star Wars: Battlefront II's single player campaign. Motive director Mark Thompson said in a new interview with GamesBeat: "We haven’t been held back by what we could achieve. The execution we have in the software is as close to the vision as I could imagine. And the process is, as I’ve seen it unfold with different technology and different engines—Frostbite is great at cinematics. The stuff we do looks fantastic."


      So hey, that's at least one developer with positive stuff to say about Frostbite. While most can likely agree that the results of using the engine are often gorgeous -- it's been criticized as one of the rough spots of development in Dragon Age Inquisition, Mass Effect Andromeda, and the recently totally-not-cancelled-but-basically-cancelled Project Ragtag by Visceral. 

    • Bandai Namco Could Announce 5 New Games Next Month

      2 weeks ago

      Eddy Writer - The Know

      It's about to be Christmas in... well, December for video game reveals, apparently -- in addition to tons of rumors surrounding The Game Awards and the PlayStation Experience over the next couple of weeks, we've also got some hints that other players in the industry are ready to make a splash as well. 


      Writer and Nintendo enthusiast Marcus Sellars -- who's been associated with some Nintendo rumors in the past -- claims that next month will see the reveal of 5 brand new Bandai Namco games. According to Sellars, these new games are set to show up at a special event around mid-December -- one which will have a significant Nintendo presence. 


      Earlier this month, Bandai Namco said something sort of similar -- namely, that they'll be announcing 3 big Nintendo Switch entries early next year. So, this sort of falls in line with that timeline? Maybe? We'll have to see what happens when mid-December rolls around. Let's keep those fingers crossed for a new Soulsborne entry... and maybe a port of the games on Nintendo's system.

      While it pains me to see the show end, I want to thank all of you guys at Smooth Few for your unpaid dedication to our entertainment. I wish you guys nothing but the best of luck on your future endeavors, and I'm eagerly await the reopening of Web Zeroes on Revision. That being said, It would be great to hear from the Leet World cast again, from time to time.
