Watch New Video of Final Fantasy 15 Massive Open World

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 2 hours 38 min ago

Square Enix today uploaded a video from the Paris Games Festival that shows off new gameplay from Final Fantasy XV.

Titled "Tabata Director's Active Time Report," the lengthy video doesn't actually get into the gameplay for FFXV until 33:24, but it does give you a glimpse of part of the game's scope with lots of walking, close-ups of huge dinosaur beasts...and a gas station.

What do you think about the game so far? It's been a long wait for Final Fantasy XV, but graphically it seems to be shaping up to be pretty impressive.

The IGN First Game for November is... - 5 hours 2 min ago

Following last month's all-in coverage of Halo: The Master Chief Collection and its glorious revival of four classic shooters, this month we're shining the IGN First spotlight on another first-person shooter: Evolve, a brand-new IP that we truly cannot get enough of (and we've played it a lot already!).

By now you're probably familiar with it: it's a 4-against-1 shooter, where four players – each playing a distinct Hunter – cooperate using their complementary skills to take down the fifth player, a Monster who can feed on wildlife and enemies alike in order to literally evolve over the course of a match. Here's some old stuff to remind you what this game is all about:

Dota 2 30th October Patch – Content Analysis

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 5 hours 28 min ago
Front End ChangesChangelog

The current item drop system doesn't function well as a reward mechanism. It drops many items on players who aren't interested in them (the items are extremely common, or they're for a hero the player doesn't play), and in the process dilutes the value of the items. We'd like to get to a place where dramatically fewer uninteresting items enter the economy. We don't have a complete solution yet, so we're going to move forward step by step, taking feedback from you as we go.

- Item drops are now entirely time based instead of level based.

Drop list now includes full sets, treasures, bundles and Arcanas at a rare rate instead of frequently dropping common items

- Battle boosters have been removed from the game entirely (we actually removed them from the store in September).

Players with an active battle booster will receive a free Treasure of the Rotted Gallows.

Players who had an unused purchased battle booster in their armory will receive a free Treasure Redemption Token.

- A new treasure, the "Treasure of the Rotted Gallows" has been added to the game.

Treasure Redemption Tokens and other items that can be redeemed for treasures can select this new treasure.

International 2013 Treasure Keys may now be redeemed for treasures.

The items in this treasure can be traded/marketed in 3 months (February 1, 2015).

The rare rewards from this treasure are not subject to the trade or marketing restriction.

Treasure Dedemption Token

The token has been updated to support the latest treasure chest.

2710704-dota2_treasuretoken.pngBug fixes
  • Fixed custom Pudge chains not appearing on both sides.
  • Fixed unusual Greevils not having their particle effects.
  • Fixed alternate hero icons not showing consistently in the UI
  • Buyback button now only accepts left clicks.

About Half of All Wii U Owners Have a Copy of Mario Kart 8

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 6 hours 2 min ago

Nearly half of everyone who bought a Wii U also owns a copy of the system's marquee racing game, Mario Kart 8, according to sales information released by Nintendo this week.

Mario Kart 8 has now sold 3.49 million copies as of September 30. With Wii U hardware sales currently sitting at 7.29 million units, that's about a 48 percent attach rate. This assumes, however, that people did not buy multiple copies of the game.


Strong sales for Mario Kart 8 are not entirely unexpected. After all, the game was adored by critics and the kart racing franchise is one of the most beloved from Nintendo of all time.

Mario Kart 8 still has a lot of work to do to catch up to its predecessor, 2008's Mario Kart Wii, however. That game has sold more than 35 million copies.

Mario Kart 8's release in May is just the beginning for the Wii U game. Multiple paid expansion packs are in the works. The Zelda-themed DLC Pack 1 coming in November includes three playable characters--Link, Tanooki Mario, and Cat Peach--four karts, and eight tracks. It's priced at $8 on its own, or $12 as part of a bundle that also gets you the Animal Crossing-themed DLC pack coming next year.

Evolve's PS4 Alpha Delayed

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 6 hours 18 min ago

[UPDATE] The Evolve alpha period on PlayStation 4 has been delayed due to network difficulties.

"Following the recent PS4 2.00 firmware update, we are experiencing difficulties with the Evolve Big Alpha on PlayStation 4," a 2K representative told GameSpot. "As a result, the test on PlayStation 4 is postponed. PlayStation and 2K are working together on a resolution. Evolve's closed alpha test is still playable on Xbox One and PC."

The original story is below.

The "Big Alpha" for 2015's much-anticipated 4v1 shooter Evolve comes to PlayStation 4 and PC today, following its launch yesterday exclusively for Xbox One.

The alpha will be available to download on PS4 and PC today starting at 9 AM PDT / 12 Noon EDT / 4 PM GMT. If you preordered a copy of the game, you're guaranteed a spot. The alpha ends on Sunday, November 2.

2K Games and developer Turtle Rock Studios have also released a new "Kraken Interactive Trailer" for Evolve, which you can see below. It allows you to see a match unfold from five different perspectives.

Evolve was originally targeted to launch this year, but it was recently delayed to February 10, 2015. The game's developer, Turtle Rock, also created the Left 4 Dead series. In Evolve, four players fight together to take down a fifth player, who takes on the role of a monster with unique (and deadly) attributes.

Evolve was originally a THQ game, but when the company went bankrupt, 2K Games parent company Take-Two Interactive bought the game during an auction for $10.9 million. For more on Evolve, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.

PlayStation Plus Reaches 7.9 Million Subscribers

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 6 hours 58 min ago

Sony's PlayStation Plus paid service now has 7.9 million subscribers, executives at the Japanese technology giant revealed today during an earnings call (via GamesIndustry International).

The company did not say how many of the subscribers are PlayStation 4 owners (Sony has sold 13.5 million PS4s to date). However, back in May, Sony CEO Kaz Hirai revealed that around half of all PS4 owners had a subscription.

PlayStation Plus subscriptions are sold by the month for $10, in three-month packages for $18, and as a yearly offering for $50. If all 7.9 million subscribers paid month-by-month, PlayStation Plus would be bringing in $79 million per month. If everyone signed up for a yearly subscription, however, monthly PlayStation Plus gross revenue would be $36.34 million.

A PlayStation Plus subscription unlocks online multiplayer on PS4 (online multiplayer is free on PS3 and PS Vita), and also gives users perks such as free games every month, discounts on titles, and cloud storage for game saves.

Also during the call, the topic of bringing the PlayStation platform to China came up. Sony management reiterated that they are "seriously evaluating the game business" in the region, explaining that PlayStation should launch in China sometime in 2015. It wasn't mentioned if Sony would bring all of its modern gaming devices (PS4, PS3, PS Vita, PS TV) to China or only certain platforms.

Sony said it is taking a "cautious, step-by-step" approach to releasing PlayStation systems in China, due in part to the country's various and significant regulatory bodies.

Microsoft launched the Xbox One in China in September. Its release marked the first console to be legally sold in the country since 2000, the year China enacted a ban on such devices over fears about the health and mental development of children. This ban was lifted in September 2013. Microsoft sold more than 100,000 Xbox Ones in China during the console's first week.

China is a potentially lucrative market for gaming, as a recent study showed that the number of gamers there is greater than the entire United States population.

Gaming's Greatest Monsters

GameSpot's PC Reviews - 7 hours 20 min ago

Do you remember the first time that a video game scared the crap out of you? Chances are, it was a wretched, bloodstained creature that struck fear into your heart, or perhaps an it was an expressionless young girl, which can be equally frightening under the right conditions.

Video games are the perfect canvas for inspiring terror. Once 3D graphics and CD quality audio became the norm, it became easier to buy into the sights and sounds coming out of our TVs. The moans and screams of tortured creatures began to feel authentic, and monsters, man and creature alike, felt alive, even though they're nothing but pixels on a screen. If you need evidence that developers are getting better at creating scary games, take one look at P.T., the playable sketch for what will eventually become Silent Hills, or Outlast, which takes you on a tour through a demented psychiatric asylum filled with disturbed, malformed lunatics. Both games are terrifying, even for someone who's seen it all.

In honor of Halloween and gaming's achievements in the field of horror, we've compiled a list of our favorite monsters from the history of gaming. Some are old, some are new, but at one point or another, they've all left their mark on someone, and likely, inspired more than a few nightmares.
