New LEGO Marvel’s Avengers Screenshots

Today four new screenshots were released for the upcoming LEGO Avengers re-union! They’re not particularly interesting and don’t reveal anything that we don’t already know about the game.

However it must be noted that these are all screenshots of a LEGO re-enactment of the first Avengers film, but it is likely that the game will feature the Age Of Ultron storyline as teased in the trailer for the game which you can also view below along with the screenshots.

Top Five GTA V Mods Of The Week #4

Welcome back to another edition of my top five GTA V mods of the week. This week is going to be less serious, I think I’ve exhausted the supply of serious mods. Therefore let it be known that this week is now the ‘Fun Week’ edition!

Disclaimer: These aren’t ordered in 5 to 1 being worst to best, they are just a collection of mods that I personally think are the five best that I have used throughout this week. I would also like to remind everyone that mods aren’t 100% safe and that I’m not responsible for any infectious malware or virus’ installed on your computer by downloading any of the mods featured here. I’m also not responsible for breaking your game or yourself getting banned from the server for playing Online with mods.

5 – Drug Trafficking By Guadmaz

cfc73d-GTA5 2015-06-06 18-14-24-21

Another mode here by the user responsible for such lovable mods as the Ambulance mini-missions and the train mini-missions. Here, Guadmaz has taken inspiration from GTA: Chinatown to re-interpret the drug trafficking missions that were scrapped early on in the development of Grand Theft Auto V.

Overall it has positive community feedback with a few reports of the game being tricky to install. However those users resolved their problems by re-installing Script Hook V. I reaaly like this mod and I’m excited to see where development is headed!

4 – LSC Vehicle Colours Index By sp4c3m4n

955c39-LSC Vehicle Colour Index Preview

This next mod isn’t necessarily a mod and I was torn about whether or not it should be included in this list, but what the heck, it’s the ‘Fun Week’ anyway!

This is a super duper handy mod from sp4c3m4n. It lays out all the colour options available for vehicles from Los Santos Customs. Showing what the colours look like in-game as well as their in-game names, allowing for seamless colour picking and choosing some awesome colour combinations. This has already showed me a few colours that I had never noticed before that I really like, and I’m sure it will do the same for you too!

3 – The Flash Mod By Kokolaty

Ever wondered why native trainer doesn’t let you run fast enough? Then this is the perfect mod for you! As you have probably guessed by now this mod allows you to run as fast (or near enough) as the Flash himself! It’s just a really silly, fun mod that allows you to run super fast everywhere! However it doesn’t feel as good as the super run ability from Saints Row IV.

However why doesn’t it contain a Flash constume?

2 – The Flash [Texture Mod] By IIZACHARIAHII

184ebc-1

Combining this, with the previous mod can lead to some super funny events. This is one of the best re-texture mods out there currently and it seems like the community is once again really into Superhero re-textures as the number one downloaded player texture is the Superman mod.

As said previously combining this mod with the previous Flash running mod can lead to some super funny moments. Once my friend came round and couldn’t  stop laughing at my screen as I ran around the world in red spandex!

1 – Nice Fly By chileno

8edd80-2015-05-08_00004

I’ve been holding off doing this mod for some time now and I can’t really tell you why. I keept seeing it as it stays around the number three spot in the most downloaded section and I kept thinking “I must try that some day!”. Well, I can tell you, that day has well and truly come.

If you couple this with the Superman re-texture mod that I mentioned in the mod above, then you can have some really fun times. This mod allows you to fly through the skies of Los Santos in a new way, without a vehicle! It’s really fun and the contols are relatively easy to master. It’s definitely a fun mod worth a look out!

All expansion packs will provide players the opportunity to use everything interchangeably, anywhere throughout the game. A full list of franchise sets can be seen below.

It was also revealed in a new trailer that every LEGO vehicle and gadget can be physically built and then rebuilt twice for a total of three different objects that do entirely different things in the digital game for massive variety. I feel that this customisability makes up for the pricey costs of the sets.

Check out the latest LEGO Dimensions trailer below.

Lego Worlds Announcement

Today WB Games UK announced their latest LEGO title, LEGO Worlds. I like to think of it a Minecraft but with LEGO instead. It seems a pretty valid description of the game thus far as all we have heard from WB Games UK is that it is “a limitless collection of procedurally generated worlds made entirely of LEGO Bricks, where players build unique environments and define their own experience.”

The game has hit Steam early access today and you can head on over there to purchase it for £11.99. Traveller’s Tales have put the game into early access to allow it to be more community driven. With the intention of listening to community feedback to  improve on the game. Check out the trailer below.

Project CARS Review

17303095892_60757b555d_k_a_1430914247

The first thing that I’m going to say about this game is that it’s a simulation, and I thank it so very much for that. Most racing simulation games today try to simulate the career of a race car driver, and while Project CARS also does this, it does it without ever having to unlock anything. You can be thrown in at the deep end, or stay in shallow waters, it’s up to you. Personally, I started my driver’s career at the beginning of the Grand Touring series.

Diving deeper into the single player you’ll find a world of tweaking. You’ll need to be able to adapt your vehicle to the conditions of the track on race day in order to secure your victory. This is where my first gripe comes in. I feel that for many news players, this tweaking system can be very overwhelming. It’s vast and complex, with no guide to help you through the different stages. If you want to learn how to do it, your going to have to check the internet for help, and that’s a shame, because the game does such a good job of talking you through every other part expect this one, which is possibly the most crucial.

Let’s move onto the track themselves. In my fourteen hours of Project CARS I never once felt that the track were ever lacking in detail. The game is visually stunning and the lighting effect blew me away. The sun glare and the rain all add to the difficulty of trying to win the race, which is possibly tough enough already. But don’t fear, if you feel that the AI are too hard, then Project CARS has you covered, touting an adaptive AI system that will allow you to tweak the difficulty of the AI to a very small percentage, rather that the standard easy, medium or hard.

The game features four modes. Solo race and Online mode give you a sandbox to play with. They allow you to have a any combination of tack, cars, weather settings and restrictions to allow you to create your perfect race. However don’t expect this to be an arcade racer, you won’t find that here. It’s a true simulator at heart and this can be seen throughout it’s mechanics and game features.

The third mode is Career which we already touched upon before. You pick where you want to start, which can be anywhere from karting to the top notch super cars, and you just race. There is n story, there is no accumulation of super cars. Everything has already been given to you. Project CARS gives you this Sandbox experience which is very new to the racing world and a nice change to the regular arcade racers.

The last mode is Driver Network and this is where you really need to understand the game, not just be able to beat it. Project CARS gives you all the tools you need to learn it’s mechanics and to then understand how they work so you can bring that knowledge into the Driver Network in order to tweak and adapt your car so that you can beat your competitors in the time trial. This means that it may be frustrating to new players, but relax, take a break and go back into the Career mode to learn more about the game as I did.

Project CARS might take some getting used to overall. I was coming from racing games that have been clones of previous ones or simply don’t provide that great experience that I’ve been looking for. This meant that when Project CARS finally landed in my library It took a couple of frustrating hours to get used to the new driving style and this meant that I ended up playing it like a standard arcade racer. Drive, crash, restart and repeat. So it wasn’t until after this period that I realised how good this game really was and how complex all of the mechanics were. The best advice that I can give to you if you want to win at Project CARS is to do as many pre-race qualification laps as humanly possible, every advantage helps in this game and Slightly Mad Studios have handed you an advantage on a silver platter.

Playing the game in the right way, by tweaking and adjusting finally rewarded me with some epic races and tussles between places on the podium. Then everything was ruined as the heavens opened and the rain came down. Everything that I had spent that last ten minutes working and tweaking for was ruined and the environment change to another extreme. But of course I had missed one crucial thing before the race. The little weather icon at the top of the screen which had probably told me that it was going to rain and from that moment forward that was the most important icon in my playing of the game.

Buggy AI within the game dampened my experience of the game. The level at which you set the AI seemed to be very inconsistent with some alterations appearing small but having a huge impact in the game. Additionally I experienced that annoying bug that would switch you from first to last place randomly which I can assure you is not helpful when trying to win a race.

Finally moving onto the Online mode. This is where you are going to have the most fun with Project CARS as it removes the buggy AI which I just mentioned and replaces it with actual players who either have equal, less or greater knowledge of the game than you. Which means that you really have to up your game if you want to win. It isn’t one of those Online modes where people are going to try and run you off the tack, no no, those people stayed with Grid 2. Instead, Project CARS has a different etiquette of drivers that has changed for the better. Every tweak that you make and every practice lap that you do will all come together to either make or break the race, and that is something that I love about this game.

Overall Project CARS is at it’s best in the multiplayer. In Career you don’t accumulate anything, no money or cars. The buggy AI and race changing bug may ruin your day, however they can be altered by patched from the developer. Project CARS offers fast paced high stakes action and that is something that I haven’t seen in this genre for a long time.
