Divinity: Original Sin 2 is Coming to Consoles

Tons of games are set to come out as we get further into 2018, and now another game has announced it is coming out ahead of the Fall season. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is coming to Xbox One and PS4 in August of 2018. The console release is the result of a deal between the developers, Larian Studios, and Bandai Mamco, who are set to publish the title for consoles.

The Divinity games are top down RPGs that have an incredibly devoted cult following. The Original Sins sub-series is a prequel to original Divinity games, all created by Larian Studios. The game is about incredibly powerful orcs invading Rivellon. The heroes of the game are the last chance of humanity against the destruction of all civilization.

The game is already available on PC. An updated interface has been created especially for the console version. The console version of the game will also feature all of the multiplayer modes featured in the original PC version. Console players will also be delighted to learn that an original split screen mode will be a feature included in the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One versions.

More information about the console version will be released as August draws closer.

As previously mentioned, 2018 is set to be a big year for gaming. On June 30th, PS4 owners will return to the role of Kratos, the god of war. This time in God of War, Kratos is in a nordic region, this time as a mentor to a young warrior.

Spider-Man is also coming in 2018 to the PS4. Super-hero games often do not get AAA releases, but Spider-Man changes that. The developers of Spider-Man are masters at what they do. Insomniac Games have previously worked on games such as Ratchet & Clank and Spyro the Dragon.

As if 2018 couldn’t get any better for PS4 users, The Last of Us 2 is also on the way.

Xbox One users shouldn’t have too much to worry about either. The long awaited Red Dead Redemption 2 is coming out later this year for both consoles. Xbox One gamers also have Crackdown 3 to look forward to towards the end of the year.

Divinity is wise to release in August instead of waiting til the holiday season when so many games are set to be released.

Sea of Thieves is Rolling out Fixes very soon

Sea of Thieves has been out for over two weeks now, and finally the developers have addressed some of the issues brought forth by players. The world is large and filled with dozens of islands, buildings, bases, and npcs. Gameplay is creative and unique. The online focus of the game allows friends to play together. So what are fans complaining about?

Sea of Thieves is an open world multiplayer pirate game. You team up with friends, sail your ship, fight together, and hoard loot. The loosely guided game play allows players to play the way they want to play, but after a few hours of playing, gamers quickly realized that there is just no motivation behind the game play. The combat isn’t all that great, but the feeling of adventure seems to be the core focus here. The game is extremely harsh, so despite the non-innovative combat, when you take down an enemy ship it is pretty rewarding. The game is also incredibly grindy. The grind is closer to unfair pay to win games than a fully released console title. It takes unimaginable hours to do things like upgrade your sails and the rest of your boat. The rewards are also very lacking in variety. Once you have fully upgraded your ship to the way you like it, you may find yourself with no motivation to continue to play.

In summary, the game feels like a beta. A lot of the content doesn’t seem to be fleshed out. Glitches with quest rewards, combat, ship physics make for a very ragged experience.

Rare, the developers of Sea of Thieves recently chimed in and let fans know that they hear their complaints. They are working hard to meet the expectations of their player base.

Rare provided a list of top feedback points from fans. They have already fixed many of the major complaints by players and are still working hard to get those changes rolled out to the game as quick as possible.

Here are a few of the fixes that are coming to Sea of Thieves in the very near future: enemy ships will respawn further away when you kill them, players will no longer be able to spawn kill you on your own ship, and Rare is working to fix a variety of cheating techniques.

Innovation and Inspiration from IC System

When it comes to accounts receivable, you want the best for your business and your customers. A lot of collection agencies can promise results, but not many have the innovation and compassion that is found within the walls of IC System (Bloomberg). The company has been in the forefront of the collections industry since 1938, and for good reason.

Too many collections agencies will do whatever it takes to collect on a debt. They are often unethical and lack empathy when speaking with consumers to collect on accounts. IC System is a different type of accounts receivable company. They pride themselves on holding all employees to a high standard of ethics that benefits both clients and consumers.

IC System is an inspiration to companies in the field, showing compassion and empathy whenever possible. They do this not only through their business practices, but through their company culture as well. The company itself donates to many charities, and encourages employees to get in on the action and improve their community.

Not only is IC System the leading collection agency in terms of ethics and accountability, they are also on the cutting edge of technology. They were the first company of their kind in the United States to switch over to computers in the 80s, and they have only continued that theme.

With constant updates to technology for collecting accounts and managing clients, IC System offers exceptional security and performance. They employ an outside firm to perform regular audits on their technology and security practices to maintain high standards. The company is also on the forefront of inspiring new ideas for security and performance in collections.

Considering their history, IC System is likely to only continue its growth and innovation over the next decades. Their security, technology, and ethics are an inspiration to all businesses, not just in the accounts receivable industry. With accolades for ethics coming from the Better Business Bureau, they truly are awe inspiring to business owners everywhere.

Gamers can soon Relive the Original Spyro Trilogy

If you were born in the late 80s or early 90s, you played Spyro the Dragon as a kid. It was one of the primary reasons for the success of the original PlayStation console, and the cute purple dragon launched the careers of dozens of individuals at Insomniac Games.

Despite attempts to keep a new Spyro remaster a secret, fans have been anticipating an official announcement from Activision for months. Activision has finally made the announcement: Spyro is coming to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 this September.

Spyro Reignited Trilogy is a complete remaster of the first three Spyro games: Spyro the Dragon, Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage, and Spyro: Year of the Dragon. This isn’t just a reskinned PlayStation 1 game. Not only will the remaster feature fresh graphics, it is also updated to work better with more modern control schemes. All three games will feature joystick control instead of game pad movement. The camera has been totally reworked to meet industry standards.

Activision released a one minute trailer along side the news of a release date. The trailer claims the game has the “same slick moves,” “same sick burns,” and encourages you to “rekindle the fire.” Spyro can be seen burning enemies, trash talking enemies, and freeing his elder dragons in the video.

Could it get any better? Yes. All three games are featured in full in Spyro Reignited Trilogy for only forty dollars. You can pick up your copy of the game on September 21st for Xbox One and PS4.

About Spyro

Spyro the Dragon was one of the first, of many mascots for Sony during their early days in the console market. Along side Crash Bandicoot, Spyro was responsible for the incredible sales of Sony’s first home console. The original game was developed by Insomniac Games and produced by Sony exclusively for the PlayStation system. The game launched in 1998 to critical and commercial success.

Since Spyro was created he has went on to be in a total of 3 games for the PlayStation, but Spyro games have also existed on the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 consoles. Spyro has also made guest appearances in other video games like Skylanders.

Spider-Man details announced

One of the bigger games that has been announced for the PlayStation 4 has been Spider-Man. However, the publisher (Insomniac Games,) has kept quiet on many of the details of the game. But recently, thanks to an interview with GameInformer, a plethora of new tidbits have been released to only add to the hype many gamers already have.

Known for other games such as the Ratchet & Clank series, Sunset Overdrive, and Spyro the Dragon; many fans have faith that Insomniac Games will finally bring a high quality superhero game to consoles.

Possibly the biggest piece of information to be released is that the game finally has a release date of September 7th, 2018. Adding to the already busy game time of year, this release date falls right near the releases of the upcoming Tomb Raider game and the much anticipated Red Dead Redemption 2. However, that won’t stop gamers from adding Spider-Man to their packed gaming schedule, as many are stating that they have already pre-ordered the game.

Another big detail revealed is that the game will contain no microtransactions. This has given many fans a reason to rejoice as recently there has been controversy surrounding major releases including the purchasing platform. Games such as Star Wars Battlefront 2 and Shadow of Mordor have received a lot of backlash for “trying to squeeze more money out of consumers,” while Spider-Man has decided against trying to implement a microtransaction system at all.

Lastly, the deluxe collector’s edition has been announced, along with its contents. The collection includes: “The City That Never Sleeps” exclusive story chapters, stickers, exclusive statue, custom steel book game case, a mini art book of game designs, three exclusive “spidey suits” for in game, as well as an exclusive PlayStation Network avatar and theme set.

Overall, Spider-Man is sure to continue to be hyped up leading up to the September 7th release date. There will be more information, as well as videos and photos released soon for the PlayStation 4 exclusive game. Only time will tell if Spider-Man can live up to the hype gamers have already created for it.

Uwe Boll Wants Warner Brothers to Change the Name of Their Upcoming Movie Rampage

According to Screenrant, Uwe Boll, who is best known for making terrible big budget movies is upset with Warner Brother’s Rampage movie, because he is concerned that fans will confuse it with his Rampage series. The Dwayne Johnson helmed movie is based on the 1980’s video game while Boll’s series is about something comepletely differnt. Specifically Uwe Boll’s Rampage series has more in common with Rambo than the video game and Dwayne Johnson movie Rampage, but with a much bloodier darker twist. In Boll’s trilogy a man builds a suit of armor and goes on a killing spree, for some unclear reason.

Uwe Boll’s movie and the adaptation of the video game have very little in common aside from the title, and it’s unlikely that anyone would confuse this relatively clean mostly family friendly movie as having been directed by Boll, whose tastes border on the bizarre and incomprehsible. Despite all of this, Uwe Boll is convinced that the movie will hurt his “brand” and that he will lose money as a result. In reality the truth is more likely that if anyone is going to rent the wrong movie by mistake, it will be an innocent unsuspecting parent who accidently scars a room full of children at a birthday party with Boll’s mostly incomprehensible movie, thus earning Boll a few extra dollars and some strongly worded e-mails or a hastily circulated petition by the confused parent.

Whether or not Boll actually has any kind of case is yet to be seen, but it is also important that as angry as he is, it is not clear whether or not he has actually sued Warner Brothers despite all of his threats. It’s also important to point out that Rampage the video game existed before his movie series, however legally this may not matter depending on who, if anyone, owns the trademark on the name.

It’s not unusual titles of movies to be reused, as many of them are quite simple and common. In fact, Crash is the name of two critically acclaimed movies which have very little in common. It’s entirely possible that Uwe Boll is just looking to stir up some attention for a career that never really had very much going for it in the first place.
