Battlefield V Trailer Pushed Bro Gamers Over The Edge.

Last night, live on YouTube the new Battlefield game trailer was revealed and like everything nowadays there soon followed much foaming at the mouth and spitting of rage.

A certain section of gamers and fans of the series went apocalyptic over the use of a female character in the trailer, raging at the developers for being ‘historically inaccurate’ with the new content, because it featured a woman.

Last night, live on YouTube the new Battlefield game trailer was revealed and like everything nowadays there soon followed much foaming at the mouth and spitting of rage.

A certain section of gamers and fans of the series went apocalyptic over the use of a female character in the trailer, raging at the developers for being ‘historically inaccurate’ with the new content, because it featured a woman.

It didn’t matter that tanks careered through buildings, trucks were dropping out of the sky, planes were crashing all around whilst soldiers, complete with facepaint, biker jackets, mohawk hair and metal prosthetic hands were jumping through top floor windows unscathed. No, these excessive, disproportionate details were fine, it was the inclusion of a female character which shat all over every aspect of the ‘historical accuracy’ this game was selling.

It’s a fucking video game with over-the-top action which is engineered to excite and entertain the player and the only true way this can be achieved is when reality is detached. Unsurpisingly the trailer took a beating on social media with bro-gamers using the hashtags #genderfield and #notmybattlefield.

Fans, who weren’t gagging on their toxic masculinity, were delighted to learn that the new Battlefield game won’t have a pay to win system or premium pass, meaning loot boxes won’t feature and once you buy the game any additional content will be free. Personally we can’t wait to see more.

Battlefield V is scheduled for release on Ocotber 19th.

Uncharted 4 Trailer Goes Viral For The Wrong Reason.

Earlier this week the trailer for Naughty Dog’s long awaited game Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End was finally released.

As per, the award winning game developer did not disappoint with the trailer hitting all the right marks for fans. Except there was a slight problem with the trailer’s content, more specifically it turned out some of the footage used was from another game.

Accusations ran riot on social media until Naughty Dog themselves admitted that they had indeed used some artwork from Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed. The detail had been spotted by Ubisoft employee AzaĂŻzia Aymar who took to social media and declared:

“I get the ‘thief’ title now!”

Ouch! Turns out it was all an innocent mistake and Naughty Dog apologised for the error by releasing the following statement:

“In our eagerness to get the story trailer out we made a regrettable mistake and didn’t thoroughly vet the art work used for an in game painting. We’ve already updated the trailer. We hold all artistry in high regard and take full responsibility for having allowed this to happen. We want to sincerely apologise to everyone at Ubisoft, the Assassin’s Creed team, the original artist, and our fans.”

We doubt that this ‘mix-up’ will have any detrimental effect on the launch day sales of the game.

 

 

Avast! Trailer For Fallout 4.

Game developers Bethesda have finally confirmed that there will now be a fourth Fallout game and during their official announcement of their new game they went a step further and delivered a gloriously looking launch trailer.

It’s been almost seven years since the last Fallout game and fans have been foaming at the mouth for news on a follow-up. As of yet very little is known about the forthcoming addition to the game’s franchise except of course it will be set  approximately 200 years after a war over resources that ended in a nuclear holocaust in 2077. The setting is a post-apocalyptic retro-future, covering a region that includes Boston, Massachusetts and other parts of New England known as the Commonwealth.

Bad news for Xbox 360 and PS3 owners as Bethesda have confirmed that Fallout 4 will not be coming to those platforms upon release or for the foreseeable future.
