News – Titanic To Be Recreated Into A Video Game Called Titanic Honor & Glory

Titanic: Honor & Glory is an indiegogo project to make a first person role-playing game that involves exploring the Titanic in a realistic sense and is said to feature not only the Titanic ship sinking but also chasing and deducing a murder mystery in the process while keeping true to the original design of the Titanic itself.

The creator Thomas Lynskey appears to be very passionate about making Titanic Honor & Glory and to be honest the graphics shown are very impressive! It would definitely cost a lot of money to recreate the Titanic visually from the ground up while also providing a story with mo-cap and hiring talent for voice overs plus all the effects necessary be it in action scenes or just the Titanic sinking itself. 

What happened to the Titanic was a very unfortunate event and Thomas Lynskey promises to do this project with taste and not just make a medico-ire product that is insulting to the history of Titanic. Thomas says he plans to go all out as far as the budget will let him that is. Money is often the problem isn’t it? That’s where you come into play. By donating towards this project you’ll help Thomas create the game of his dreams while also helping you experience the engrossing richness of the game itself. Consider donating to his project and supporting game development that is rich with content, detail and atmosphere. – Craig of GTN

“We needed to ensure that the game is as polished as possible, and to make certain that both Heists and the GTA Online experience are ready to roll out on day one for PC.” – Rockstar

Rockstar also clarified that they will give everyone who has pre-ordered Grand Theft Auto V a 200,000 in game currency for use in Grand Theft Auto Online. They begged for PC gamers forgiveness saying that they ask the PC community to have understanding and hope that you’ll assist in helping reporting concerns or bugs when the game releases for PC by writing them at GTAOnline@rockstargames.com so they may make the fixes needed. Grand Theft Auto V is already out on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Still one wonders what the hold up is that is going on over at Rockstar Studios.
 The PC version of Grand Theft Auto V will support native 4K which provides a great level of detail even if you play Grand Theft Auto V at the PC standard which is 1080p and 60fps. Grand Theft Auto V also is said to feature deep configuration and Ultra High Definition support. While the above is PC exclusive so is the Rockstar Editor which is used for recording your GTAV gameplay and cutting it up for the best moments to share with your friends.

News – Ubisoft (Uberbroken) Reveals The Divisions PC System Requirements For PC

You might asking yourself why does GTN dislike Ubisoft so much for? Because Ubisoft is a company that forces out very un-inspired games and treat their employees like their working a sweat shop. How else do you think this company releases so many games a year? It’s quantity over quality and I don’t support that kind of trash seeping through in the industry. Enjoy your copy and paste 30% of a what the game should be. I’m out! – Craig of GTN.

News – Legacy Of Kain Dead Sun Gameplay Leaked Which Square Enix Cancelled

If you don’t know already Legacy Of Kain franchise was originally made by Crystal Dynamics which was bought out by Sqaure Enix. The core mechanics of Legacy Of Kain Dead Sun still lives on in a multi-player aspect in a Free-to-play game called Nosgoth that is available for the PC only and developed by Psyonix. Nosgoth is part of the Legacy Of Kain franchise as well albeit just the multi-player video game expanded from the failed project that was LOK Dead Sun.
For all the fans of the Legacy Of Kain. Dead Sun wasn’t truly what fans wanted due to it being a reboot of an already great franchise. Nosgoth was also a huge slap in the face to Legacy Of Kain fans due to the story being so interesting and detailed in the first place. Many hope that a remaster of those games would be coming at one point but that also never happened and probably never will happen sadly. Legacy of Kain is a franchise that will be remember for what it was; being a supremely well written masterpieces that was full of detail, wonderment, and mystery that sadly anyone new to gaming will never be able to experience.
