A French artist by the name of Koola used his skills with the Unreal Engine 4 to create photo realistic architectural designs that not only gained the attention of the creators of UE4, but a large chunk of the gaming community has started to see his creations as new standards for video game visuals. 

Earlier in 2015, Koola became the first ever recipient of the Unreal Dev Grants program, which basically rewards creative minds for the wonders they managed to create using the Unreal Engine 4.

Check out Koola’s work in the gallery below.

What’s even more impressive is that the man designed these scenes using consumer-grade hardware without sacrificing render speeds or experiencing severe dips in the average amount of frames per second (which range between 50 and 60 fps). 

To see Koola’s work in motion, check out his ArchViz portfolio through his official YouTube channel

Earlier this week, Ed Boon gave us a teasing poem on twitter about when Tanya would arrive for Mortal Kombat X. His response to a fan asking about the character stated, “She’s koming soon, In early June, Or my name ain’t Boon.”

Yesterday in a follow up tweet, Ed Boon revealed that Tanya would be available for download on June 2nd. This date, however, is only for those who have purchased the Kombat Pack. For everyone else, she will be available on June 9th. Of course, as was with Jason, there is always a chance to wait it out longer and see if she’ll show up for free in the challenge tower. But then you’ll have to beat her. 

We have still yet to hear when Tremor and the Predator will be available, but hopefully they will enter Mortal Kombat very soon.

Sony Kills Vita http://www.gamerheadlines.com/2015/05/sony-kills-vita/ http://www.gamerheadlines.com/2015/05/sony-kills-vita/#comments Thu, 28 May 2015 16:36:30 +0000 http://www.gamerheadlines.com/?p=95689 The PS Vita is the best handheld I have ever owned.

The PS Vita is the best handheld I have ever owned. After I finished playing Pokemon on my 3DS I put it on my shelf for months and eventually gave it to my younger brother since it was going to waste. I was playing the Vita a lot more, and I could play fan made Pokemon games on my tablet that were twice as fun. I was the first person to get a PS Vita in my area, at the time, I didn’t realize I would be one of the three people all these years down the line. 

The PS Vita is powerful, it’s no secret it has the best hardware out of all the handhelds on the market. However, it is no secret that it has been struggling. The PS Vita has suffered severely in one area; support. Sony has pretty much gone out of their way to grind the Vita into the ground by not giving it proper support. Now they have delivered a critical hit to PS Vita fans outside of Asia by giving the Vita the death label of ‘Legacy Platform’.

An example of a legacy platform would be the PlayStation 2 or PSP. What it means is that Sony will no longer work on the system and investments for it will be limited. This means that the PS Vita will have to become even more reliant on indie developers. Don’t get me wrong, indie games are my bread and butter, but the idea that that’s all I am going to be able to play on my PS Vita after all the money I have invested into it is a kick in the teeth. 

I was disappointed when I saw we’d only be getting two PS Vita games with PlayStation plus this June. I was already ticking that the only announcement for the PS Vita at this years E3 is that it’s going to drop $110 in price. The PS Vita while being fantastic always suffered because its memory cards are tiny but super expensive. When I was saving for my 16GB memory card I lost a stone because I had to choose between food or saving. If they wanted to improve Vita sales they’d stop overcharging on the memory cards.

Unfortunately, Andrew House apparently can’t see that and at Sony’s 2015 Investor Relations Day, mister hot shot CEO called the PS Vita a Legacy Platform outside of Asia.

Fortunately for me, I’m moving to China this August so I’ll still be able to play the games that aren’t coming over to Europe. Still, even 8 tissues and a Pheonix Down aren’t going to revive my high hopes for the PS Vita at this point. I’m not looking forward to having to play my games in Mandarin when it’s easily preventable. I’m not sure what I’m more ticked off about; The fact that the PS Vita has been labelled as a ‘Legacy Platform’ or the fact that they still haven’t put Final Fantasy: Crisis Core in the Vita compatible PSP games section.

Sometimes I feel like Andrew House at Sony, finalizes his decisions by consulting the magic conch shell from Spongebob…

Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was delayed to spring 2016 earlier this year for additional development, but today we have learned that the game will be playable by the end of March next year. 

In Sony’s recent Investor Day Presentation, the game was listed as part of their plan for the next fiscal year to push 1st part exclusive titles along with more general content to gain a broader audience. Keeping in mind that Sony’s fiscal year ends March 31st, it is safe to say that Uncharted 4 should be out before then.

Andrew House, president of PlayStation, also listed Powers season 2 to be released for the next fiscal year. Powers is the PlayStation Network’s first original programming and the first season has shown some promise.

 image

In trying to broaden their audience, House also continued support for their virtual reality excursion through Project Morpheus. Last week we learned that Sony was opening a new studio in the UK specified for titles for this idea.

PlayStation fans have a lot to look forward to this next year. What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.

It’s a small modification that could make a big difference…

Microsoft have announced that, from June 2015, newly bought Xbox One controllers will include a 3.5mm headphone port on the base. 

The announcement was made via the Xbox Support Website and is likely due for a more official reveal at Microsoft’s E3 conference later next month. No other changes to the new controller have been revealed, but there is potential for the company to listen to fan’s calls for it to be charged via USB straight out of the box. 

PS4

Sony’s DualShock 4 controller was praised when it was released back in 2013 for including a headphone port which allowed players to listen to their game via headset and talk to other players more easily, and it looks like Microsoft are following suit.

Batman: Arkham Knight might be less than a month away from its official release date, but that doesn’t stop developer Rocksteady from teasing and amazing us with epic gameplays and trailers.

This ‘Time To Go To War‘ gameplay trailer for Batman: Arkham Knight directly follows the events that took place during the ‘Officer Down’ gameplay clip that was released two months prior.

You can check out the full 7 minute video below.

Right off the bat (no pun intended), we get to see Batman in free flow action as he beats up a bunch of thugs with incredible effectiveness and downright impressive moves.

Also shown was the Dark Knight himself confronting the seductive criminal Poison Ivy, who decides to mock him despite her relatively cooperative approach.

In addition to seeing Poison Ivy and Batman in motion, we also got a clearer look at the vehicular combat that has the player cleverly maneuvering across the streets to avoid being blown to bits by the titular Arkham Knight’s military forces. 

Batman: Arkham Knight has a June 23rd, 2015 release date for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
