You may remember the controversy that happened a few weeks back when Digital Foundry analysed what it claimed to be recent code of Project CARS when it turned out the build was actually a few months old. Well, the team at Slightly Mad Studios have showcased footage from a near-final build of the game to put doubters minds to rest. The footage is taken from the PlayStation 4 version of the game and as you can see it looks rather stunning.
Guitar Hero is reborn in this brand new revamped version, releasing later this year on the Wii U, PS4 and Xbox One. You truly are the rockstar in this game, playing live to a real responsive crowd with your bandmates who won’t be too happy if you mess up! With an entirely new button layout too, even old Guitar Hero veterans can challenge themselves and test their might in this all new version that focuses on broad music genres. I wasn’t interested at all in this game until I saw this trailer– their concept is pretty awesome, and the Creative Director has a magnificent beard.
Disney Infinity 3.0 hasn’t even been announced yet but character names and images have appeared online. Apparently coming from Chinese retailer Taobao, they were posted to Infinity Inquirer but has since been taken down at the request of Disney Interactive, but not before someone could snatch the images!
Characters revealed were classic Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Mulan, Olaf from Frozen, Sam Flynn and Quorra from Tron, and five characters from the upcoming Pixar movie Inside Out. It’s also likely that Disney Infinity 3.0 will feature Star Wars figures given the release of the new film this Christmas. Even if you’re not a fan of the game, the figures make for pretty cool collectibles. I’d love to get my hands on Chewie and Han Solo figures!

Square Enix has officially announced a brand new Deus Ex game in the latest edition of Game Informer. Deus Ex: Mankind Divided won’t be coming to Wii U this time around and is scheduled for released on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC. The game doesn’t have a release date yet, maybe we will get one at E3 in June. Here’s some details about Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
Set in 2029, two years after the events of Human Revolution, Adam Jensen returns and joins forces with an Interpol-funded task force aiming to hunt down and capture augmented terrorists in a world that now hates and fears transhumans. Jensen has a new suite of augmentations that allow him to cleverly navigate stealth, combat, and social interactions, but how Jensen chooses to solve every problem is entirely up to you.
At the end of Human Revolution, the Illuminati caused every transhuman to go into a fight-or-flight response and attack anyone near them. In the next issue of Game Informer, you can find out how this event caused humanity to hate and fear those with augmentations. We spent two days in Eidos-Montreal’s studio, talking with the team and learning about how they build a realistic future. We go in depth on some of Jensen’s new augmentations that help improve the stealth and combat systems, such as the ability to remote hack electronic objects, fire off his nano blade from a distance, and surround himself with a nearly indestructible nanoshield. We also got some great examples on how the game will be as open ended as ever, allowing players to carve their own path through the world. You can only get these details in the latest issue of Game Informer.
Thanks, Nintendo Impact Gaming
