Sony Details PlayStation 4 Update 1.70, Includes Game Pre-Loading and Video Editor App

ps4 change hdd how toSony has detailed some of the new features being added in the PS4’s next system update, which will introduce the SHAREfactory app and pre-loading games.

Sony announced that Update 1.70 will introduce an auto pre-download capability for the console. This means that you can pre-download your pre-ordered games “up to several days prior to release” before being unlocked on release day. If the auto-download feature is already active, the console will automatically download them.

Similar to Upload Studio on Xbox One, the SHAREfactory app is a video editor which allows you to customise your gameplay videos by combining clips, editing them down and personalising them through use of stickers and text, amongst other things before sharing them with your friends and onto social networks. If you have a PlayStation Camera you can also record your own commentary.

Another extra being added is the ability to import your own music to your videos and create your own soundtrack.

This new app is working alongside the other new feature, which allows you to export your videos to a USB device. There are a number of improvements being added to the sharing system, such as changing the recording time of your gameplay to shorter periods, being able to choose who you share your video with and removing default saves for screenshots and video clips.

In a move that will please many, Update 1.70 will allow you to switch off HDCP, meaning that you can now record directly from your HDMI output.

There is no word yet on when it will be released, just that it will be coming ‘soon’

The 10 Sexiest Video Games Ever

Our personal belief here at Unigamesity is that there are not enough games for adults out there and it appears that not even the new generation of consoles will address the issue. Therefore, we have to take advantage of what we already have and keep on playing the few really sexy video games that have been launched until today. And even though developers were a bit more daring in the 90s, the poor graphics of the time don’t make us sweat anymore. So we’ve decided to create a list of the 10 sexiest video games ever featuring some of the more recent titles and only the old ones that matter.

It’s been pretty difficult, actually, to create this list because there are some games featuring incredibly sexy characters but they don’t really tickle the pickle. So hopefully you will agree with our list!

Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

01 Dead or Alive 5 Ultimate

I was tempted to go all cliche and put Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball on the list, but decided to go even more next gen with the bounciness and opted for DOA 5 instead. Why? Well, because there’s always going to be something sexy about extremely sexy chicks fighting. We have nice physics, nice girls, some really hot costumes and, surprisingly, a really good fighting game for the complete pleasure of those who give it a try. So really a complete game that’s also sexy and a joy to play, proving that we can get some decent quality from sleazy looking products. Your parents might even let you buy and play this one, so check it out here.

Criminal Girls: Invitation

02 criminal girls

Probably one of the most obscure games on the list and one that is only available in Asia, Criminal Girls: Invitation is Nippon Ichi’s dirtiest little secret. but instead of “secret,” you should read “game”. A PS Vita exclusive, the game puts you in the uncomfortable shoes of a prison warden in Hell who has to take care of the naughty girl prisoners there and spank some sense into their tiny bodies. Literally. It looks like your regular PS Vita dungeon crawler slash RPG game until you get to scenes like the one in the image above. And there’s plenty of them throughout the game, and that’s the exact reason why you find it listed here. And if you plan to get it, your best choice would be Play Asia – No Region Protection included, and no need to wear any other type of protection either.

Heavy Rain

03 heavy rain

A game that people have talked about for all the right reasons makes it on this list too because, well, it’s pretty darn sexy! What makes it so sexy is one of the main characters, Madison Paige, who’s one of the sexiest game characters ever because she looks so natural. She’s also my age, so I’d probably have a chance in a million with her, too. Back to the game, it also features an interactive sex scene that makes it even sexier and in case you haven’t played it, you should: it’s one of those few games that manage to keep the quality up… and not just that! Check it out on Amazon, if you will.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII

04 final fantasy

Well, I know that basically all Final Fantasy games can be considered sexy for the female characters that provided us with eye candy over the years, but I went with the latest installment of the series because Lightning. It’s true that most of the sexiness of the game comes from your dirty little mind and all those artwork pictures (just as is the case of Yuna or Tifa), but whatever works… works!

Tomb Raider

05 tomb raider

Just like Mario and Sonic, Lara Croft is part of the video games history and I doubt there will be many female video game characters to reach the notoriety of Lara and have such a huge fan base. The beautiful adventurer gets more pixels in her boobs with every iteration (as well as a better looking face) and every time you play a Tomb Raider game, you do it for the amazing main character and never for the game itself. However, the latest Tomb Raider was, in my opinion, the best of the series, and that’s really fortunate because it also featured the sexiest Lara Croft in the series, for a perfect loop. Get it if you haven’t done so already.

7 Sins

06 7 sins

A game based on the seven sins, featuring a lot of sex and nasty behavior… well, that’s something you have to play and something that developers need to remake with current gen graphics. Even though it’s more The Sims than anything else and there’s actually not a lot in terms of adult material, the game remains sexy thanks to the huge amount of beautiful ladies that populate the in-game world and all the beautiful actions you can perform with them. In case you haven’t played it yet, you can try it out here.

Bayonetta

07 bayonetta

A game that was first praised, then criticized for its main character – a sexy femme fatale that some people think looks like Sarah Palin – is one that deserves a spot on this list of the sexiest video games ever. Long legs, latex suits, big guns and big’uns, all these make Bayonetta one of the sexiest games ever released. Unfortunately, not one of the best ones, but you can’t always have it all! Find out more about Bayonetta here.

Playboy: The Mansion

08 playboy the mansion

This one’s a pretty obvious entry in the series. There are not many games that put you in the shoes of the owner of one of the biggest and best known magazines for men, and there are even fewer that give you the chance to choose all the cover stars AND take hot photos of them wherever you want. As fun as this might sound, it actually gets boring relatively fast, but then you’re already 12 months into the game and a new hot starlet appears and you’ve got to have her. So you’ll keep going, like ol’ Heff who is probably immune by now to nekkid ladies.

Lula 3D

09 lula 3d

Initially, I wanted to place Lula: The Sexy Empire on the list because it was the first more adult game that I have ever played, back when age restrictions meant nothing to parents. However, since it’s a pretty old game, I decided to go for the more recent release, which is Lula 3D. A sexy adventure game involving porn stars, barely clothed ladies and a main character that you’ll end up loving, Lula 3D is one of the sexiest and unfortunately buggiest games ever made. Check it out here because you probably haven’t done it already.

Red Light Center

10 red light center

Well, this is actually the game that puts the sex into “sexiest video games”! A game that your parents won’t let you play (nor admit they’re playing), it’s basically Second Life after a few glasses of red wine. This “virtual reality” game lets you create your own character and go on crazy sexcapades in the virtual world – and even if you are a sorry old loser just like in real life, you can stile hire, for in-game currency, sex workers to satisfy your virtual pleasures. Yup, something like that really exists (and it was pretty hard to actually find a somewhat decent photo from the game)!

So, there you have them: the sexiest video games ever, a mixed list of titles you wouldn’t be ashamed to admit you’re playing and games you’d pretend you’ve never heard about. Unfortunately, there are pretty few games focusing a lot on the “sexy” element – I would’ve loved this list to have more potential entries. No pun intended.

Watch Dogs Delay “Tremendously Important” for The Division Developer

tom-clancys-the-division-1370929901777_956x500Massive Entertainment, the developer for upcoming Ubisoft shooter The Division, has praised the company’s decision to delay highly anticipated game Watch Dogs.

Originally planned for release in November 2013, Ubisoft took the decision to delay the game to ensure the games quality. Watch Dogs is now scheduled for release on 27th May, with the Wii U version planned for some time in Q4 this year.

In a discussion with Examiner David Polfeldt, Managing Director of Massive Entertainment, said: “It’s tremendously important for us as a developer studio, to know that the owner and the publisher are ready to take that hit, and [the Watch Dogs delay] was a massive hit. I think their shares fell 25 per cent on the day it was announced it was being delayed.

“It takes so much courage to live through that day and still think that was a good decision. So for us in the development [side of things], that’s an important message that ultimately the management will back up the goals that we have, which is the game has to be great.

“That’s ultimately the end goal and then it’s a million times better if it’s on time, but if there is a choice between time and quality, then quality will win.”

The comments come following rumours that a similar delay may hit The Division, after reports back in January labelled Ubisoft’s planned release date of 2014 as “laughable”.

It’s good to see Ubisoft putting quality first, and the games will be better for it.

What are your thoughts on Ubisoft’s delay policy?

The Wolf Among Us Episode 3: A Crooked Mile Review

When Telltale Games finished the first season of The Walking Dead, people wondered how they could possibly top their magnum opus. To the surprise of many, they announced The Wolf Among Us, an episodic adaptation of Bill Willingham’s beloved comic series, Fables.

What started off as a promising retelling has slowly and steadily become a series that, in some ways, tops what was accomplished with The Walking Dead.

A Crooked Mile has you in the shoes of Bigby, Sheriff of Fabletown, and lead investigator on the murders of two Fables. It picks up immediately where Smoke & Mirrors left off, with Bigby having discovered that Mr. Smith is in fact Ichabod Crane. Thinking they have everything figured out, Bigby and Snow spend a majority of A Crooked Mile trying to track down their new prime suspect.

The plot that unfolds throughout the approximately two hour journey is more of a transitional one, in that it bridges the narrative of the first two episodes with the eventual finale. You never feel as if you’re making real progress, and without giving anything away, the ending will leave you feeling even more helpless and confused than before. All of that said however, it uses this time to build up what will most likely be an absolutely nail-biting climax. I know not how the events will unfold, but A Crooked Mile is the first time I’ve felt as if I need to get my paws on the next entry as soon as possible.

wolf-among-us-crooked-mile

Beyond the plot, the gameplay remains almost entirely unchanged. Like previous entries in the franchise, Telltale has you tracking down leads, investigating crime scenes, examining evidence, interrogating and questioning characters, and putting the clues together. All of this is done in the vein of The Walking Dead, with limited point-and-click controls that allow free, albeit linear, exploration and movement.

The gameplay, though nothing to write home about, benefits greatly by the wonderful characters you are frequently interacting with. All Telltale games are character-driven, and I’d argue that Wolf Among Us has the the most consistently great characters out of any of their heavy hitting franchises.

Snow White, an intelligent, strong female lead braves it out despite all the horrible things that happen to her. Bigby, a villain turned anti-hero repents for his prior sins by bringing peace back to Fabletown. The Woodsman, a crestfallen peace-disturber, and Bufkin, a winged monkey from Oz that is reminiscent of an unloved child looking for acceptance and praise. It matters not which character we focus on, as every single character that has appeared is memorable and charismatic in a way that makes you wish you could get to know them more personally.

Luckily for me, and most likely yourself, A Crooked Mile gives us that opportunity. Because of the pacing of this episode, you spend an extended amount of time looking behind the curtain into the lives of the many citizens, and every moment is worth the wait; even if most of the people you talk to wish for your demise.

Fabletown has never been a particularly charming place to live. From the slums and run-down ghettos to the hostile civilians themselves, it’s not exactly welcoming newcomers with open arms. That said, there is a unique alluring quality to it. This is in part due to the atmospheric music and the film noir artistic direction that make it desirable. As mentioned before, the characters make this game, but the world and its design make the idea come to life and thrive in a way that I feel is more natural than even the best parts of The Walking Dead.

The music uses a blend of repetitive minor chords on what sounds like a Rhodes keyboard, overlaid with analogue sounds that seem to be ripped straight out of a film noir flick. It fits the art perfectly, and builds tension, even by its frequent absence. The art itself takes full advantage of the comic-book style used in The Walking Dead, but adds blotches of neon over a darkness that is almost constrictive. It feels as if the entire world were drenched in a thick black fog, and it really evokes a sense of dreariness that I don’t feel often. It’s abrasive at first, but the more you spend time in the world, the more you feel a connection; a sense of belonging.

It’s quite admirable that they can make one feel that sort of attachment, as it makes Bigby’s quest ever more important. You will find yourself needing to purify Fabletown of its many issues, but it will not happen without a fair share of burnt bridges and severed ties.

I was slightly hesitant upon starting The Wolf Among Us, but the series offers a unique setting, a bizarre tale of corruption and intrigue, and some of the best characters Telltale has ever brought to life. A Crooked Mile was not only the best episode thus far, but sets up what I hope to be an outstanding conclusion in the near future. Only time will tell.

Titanfall: Expedition DLC Coming out Next Month

titanfall dlcThe first piece of Titanfall DLC will be released in May, Respawn Entertainment has announced.

The map pack will be called Expedition and will introduce three new maps into the Frontier, called Runoff, Swamplands and Wargames.

In a post on the Titanfall Blog, Respawn added a bit of narrative for the pack, as well as how the three maps will link together: “In the wake of the Battle of Demeter, IMC Expeditionary Forces travel deep into Frontier space to recover from their recent defeat.”

This leads into Runoff, where IMC have begun building a new operations base on an unnamed planet.

Drainage operations at the base uncover ancient ruins and artefacts that are ‘of unknown oirigin’ which is the setting for second map Swamplands.

The final map, Wargames, is set in the training grounds of the facility, where the IMC pilots train: “Train for anticipated Militia raids, based on lessons learned in Angel City and IMC Airbase Sierra.”

The first of three new packs, Titanfall: Expedition will be available next month for $9.99/£7.99. You can also get it as part of the Titanfall Season pass, which is available on the three released consoles (Xbox One, PC and xbox 360) for $24.99/£19.99, giving you a chunk off the overall price of purchasing them separately.

What are your thoughts on the content for this pack? Remember that Respawn have already stated that game modes will be included free as part of future updates. What would you have liked to have seen included for this DLC?

Download This: Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death

cadenzaFans of the hidden object adventure genre, I have an important announcement for you: there’s a MUST download game that has just been released on Big Fish Games and its title is Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death. Really, a must play game and if you did play any other by the same developer you probably know that you can expect some really high quality things from it.

Just launched over at Big Fish Games, the story of Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death goes like this: “Listen… for the sound of betrayal! You’ve returned from school to visit your father at his famous Jazz Pepper Club during Mardi Gras, but everyone is hypnotized. Have they heard the wrong note? Explore the musical mystery in Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death!”

Mini games, a great story, impressive music to accompany the unfolding of the events and some top notch visuals – these are all elements that make a great game and they are all present in this title. The hidden object scenes themselves are really nicely made with great touches like built in interactivity and collection of musical notes – and you don’t have to be a jazz lover to enjoy the game!

Really, just like I said in the introductory paragraph, this is a must play game so you should at least give the 1 hour demo a try by downloading Cadenza: Music, Betrayal and Death here.

borderlands pre sequelThe next Borderlands game has now been officially revealed by 2K.

The third game in the RPG Shooter will be known as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and is due to be released on Xbox 360, PC and PS3 later this year, 2K has announced. It is being primarily developed by 2K Australia with supervision from Gearbox Software.

The game will be a standalone game and will take place in-between the events of Borderlands and Borderlands 2, and will see you battling on Pandora’s moon alongside Borderlands 2 villain Handsome Jack as you watch changes into his tyrannical Borderlands 2 self and assisting with the rise of the Hyperion Corporation.

The game will feature four new playable characters to jump in as, each with their own unique abilities, and all characters that have appeared in the Borderlands universe before:

Athena, the Gladiator: Uses her Kinetic Aspis, which is a shield that can absorb incoming damage, then convert it back into energy to use against enemies. Athena made her appearance in Borderlands DLC The Secret Armory of General Knoxx.
Wilhelm, the Enforcer: Who was the first major boss character in Borderlands 2
Nisha, the Lawbringer: Known for being the Sheriff of Lynchwood in Borderlands 2
Claptrap, the Fragtrap: The first Claptrap you encounter in Borderlands, and the last surviving one in Borderlands 2.

The game will also feature a number of new features. Being set on a moon means there is now a low-gravity atmosphere, as well as oxygen being used as a resource like ammo to allow you to go out on the moon’s surface. You can also use the oxygen tanks as a small jet pack, allowing you to hover for a short time. Whilst hovering, you can also press the crouch button and unleash a ‘ground pound’ style move on enemies.

The game will also contain a new ‘Cryo’ element damage type, which slows down and eventually freezes enemies, which can then be shattered. There will also be a new laser weapon class as well as new vehicles to play with.

What are your thoughts on the Pre-Sequel so far? More details should be coming soon.

Take a look at the developer overview for the game below:
