Just Push Start - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 14:33
Swedish developers Coilworks and publishers Double Eleven have just released a sneak peak into the changeable visual styles in their upcoming title Super Cloudbuilt. Super Cloudbuilt is a sci fi themed rocket propelled parkour game, where players canexplore and attempt speedruns. Each level has a number of paths and players have the choice of which to take, whilst trying to get the best time. Now players will also be able to choose how the game looks as well! Anders Davallius, Coilworks Creative Director, spoke about the feature alongside the announcement: “During the debug process, we saw hints of what is now ‘Low Noise’ mode and liked it so much that we really wanted the players to see it. We decided to give players more flexibility based on their personal preference, giving them new ways to experience Super Cloudbuilt by providing styles that we thought looked cool and felt unique.” Super Cloudbuilt is set for releases on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Steam this summer.

Zombie Tower 3D – A Unique Zombie Survival Game

Just Push Start - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 13:31
Zombie Tower 3D is a semi-cooperative board game where players must work together to escape the tower they are trapped in. There are two ways to escape by helicopter or via a secret tunnel and which the players choose will largely depend on what loot they acquire as they often run from the zombies. Does the game offer something new for zombie fans to enjoy or will they be left wanting to escape the game? Let’s find out! There are a lot of zombie board games out there but Zombie Tower 3D does plenty to break the “same old” recycled concepts hurdle many fall flat at. In a similar way to Colt Express, the game board being three-dimensional draws players into a rather unique experience. The design is even drilled into the mechanics of the game. So much so that the board couldn’t be on a flat board because players are only allowed to see one part of the tower, the part facing them. No peaking is allowed! This makes for an interesting situation where players cannot tell how well the zombie slaying is going for other survivors. Are your fellow heroes swiftly despatching zombies or are they being overrun? By default Zombie Tower 3D designed to be a semi-cooperative experience. This means that while everyone must survive for the game to be won, there is a winner at the end. Each player will have individual and secret objectives to gain points at the end of the game and saved survivors will also net players points. Passing a loot item through the walls of the tower to another player whom says they need it to survive may just be trying to hinder your point scoring ability rather than to survive. The potential of backstabbing therefore means players will soon start to wonder whom to trust and when to help. I’m split on one decision we made when reviewing the game, as it improved the flow of the game yet it also removed some of the game’s personality. I found after switching to play Zombie Tower 3D as a completely co-operative game players’ enjoyment increased. Other games that aim to be semi co-operative are great at what they do, for example Bloodborne The Card Game. It is just Zombie Tower 3D seemed to flow better when players were being fully co-operative. Perhaps we just sucked at the game and needed to work together to survive at all. The game is relatively straight forward to pick up and play. Players take it in turns to spend 3 action points (AP), before zombies try to consumer them and the other survivors. On a player’s turn they have a range of actions they can perform, some costing 1AP and others which are free. For 1AP players can move to one adjacent room, search for loot, rest to regain health or use an item. For free players may save a survivor, release saved survivors or pass items through selected areas of the towers walls. Players...

Bandai Namco Delay Get Even Out Of Respect After Manchester Terrorist Attack

Just Push Start - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 11:46
Bandai Namco were set to launch Get Even later this week however the company has decided to postpone the release after the recent events in Manchester, England. Get Even is a first person thriller where players take up the role of Cole Black. In the opening scenes of the game players stumble across a girl tide to a chair with a bomb vest on. Due to the potential similarities between this scene and the recent tragic event in Manchester, where 22 people including children lost their lives at a music concept, the team has made the respectful decision to delay the games release. In a public statement released by Bandai Namco the publisher said: “Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even to June 23rd. We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned”. To second the final point of the statement our thoughts, from all of us at Just Push Start, are very much with the families affected by the events of Manchester.

Square Enix Currently Hiring For Multiple Staff To Work On Final Fantasy 7 Remake

Just Push Start - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 10:17
It looks like we may not see Final Fantasy 7 Remake anytime soon. This is because Square Enix is still posting job listings for many key positions to work on the game. The Japanese Square Enix website posted a blog with the headline “Final Fantasy 7 Remake core staff wanted!”. It also has comments from the developers on what they want to see from new employees. Square Enix is currently looking for a Battle Planner, a Level Planner, a BG Designer, a VFX Designer, a Motion Designer and a Programmer, As you can see, these vacancies are empty which means there is still a lot to go before the game will be finished. Hopefully we will hear of more news on the game’s development soon. The game was first announced back at E3 2015, but sadly we may not see it being released very soon.

Phil Spencer Says Xbox Scorpio Will Have ‘Best Console Version Of Games’

Just Push Start - Wed, 05/24/2017 - 09:46
Xbox Head Phil Spencer is very confident about the specs of the Xbox Scorpio console. He is confident it will be your best way to play console video games. A fan asked Spencer on Twitter if games like Destiny 2 or Call of Duty: WWII will look better on Xbox Scorpio. Spencer replied with: “I’m very confident, from what we are seeing and hearing, Scorpio will be the very best console version of games this year..” Spencer may have been throwing shade at Sony’s PS4 Pro console which came out last year. Currently the PS4 Pro is the most powerful console out in the market. That will change when Scorpio is out later this year. We may see some more of the Scorpio very soon at Microsoft’s E3 press conference this June. It’s highly expected that Forza Motorsport 7 will be one of the titles to fully showcase the console’s raw power.
