UK Games Chart Update

Here we go with another chart update. I’m pretty sure everyone can agree that this week was very hectic. Things will be getting back to normal now as I wrap up E3 and a few other things.

In the mean time let’s take a look at the chart standing currently for the UK games industry.

Coming into the number one spot is ESO: Tamriel Unlimited a game that needs no further introductions. After being hit by server problems worldwide it seems that this game has used a heal potion and levelled up to number one.

Another new instalment here at No.2 with LEGO: Jurassic World. This games has stomped it’s way past The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt which sees Garet placed into a lowly third. At No.4 we have Payday 2: Crime wave Edition which is the console instalment of the beloved Payday 2. Plummeting like Michael’s love life is GTA V which drops all the way from No.2 to 5. Heading up No.6 is FIFA 15, it’s dropped in the league tables from No.3 to 6. Call Of Duty earns another prestige as Advanced Warfare moves from tenth to seventh place. Coming in at No.8 is Splatoon which has dripped down the wall from fourth to eight place. Battlefield Hardline is busted and servers four more years in jail as it moves from No.5 to No.9 and finally at No.10 we have Farming Simulator 15, where the harvest continues to fail and sees it drop from No.7 to No.10

If you think I’m doing the other ten you have another thing coming. I’m all out of jokes.

New Batman: Arkham Knight Screenshots

Good news everyone!

I have yet another collection of screenshots to share with you today, this time gliding in from Batman: Arkham Knight! The shots below display the awesome amount of fidelity that has gone in through Rokcsteady’s hard work on the last instalment in the series. Ranging from the burnt flesh on Two-Face, to the Batwing dropping the Batmobile into the heat of battle, they truly are awesome! Check them out below.

Insomnia 55’s Star Studded Lineup

i55-black-on-white

This year, Multiplay will be welcoming both Youtube and Twitch stars to the biggest UK Gaming festival, Insomnia 55.

The biggest stars of the show will possibly be The Yogscast. With billions of views and tens of millions of subscribers, The Yogscast group will be heading to Insomnia55 with well-known names from the crew such as Lewis, Sjin, Duncan, Sips, Hannah, Martyn, Hat Films and Turps all sharing some of their unique insight into gaming culture across the event’s three live days. Some may notice the absence of Yogscast co-founder Simon (AKA Honeydew). Simon has been ill for the past few months and it appears that he will not be well enough to make it down to Coventry for the festival.

Also attending the festival over the three day period will be Syndicate, The Diamond Minecart and Ali-A, who is attending for the first time. Also returning are The Sidemen featuring KSI, W2S, Vikkstar123, Behzinga, Zerkaa, Miniminter and TBJZL, bringing their unique sense of gaming-focused humour to the event. With Kwebbelkop, Slogoman, The Gaming Lemon and Jelly also attending.

Insomnia55 takes place at the Ricoh Arena over Summer Bank Holiday weekend, Friday, August 28th to Monday, August 31st 2015. Tickets are currently on-sale and are available via http://insomniagamingfestival.com/tickets/.

Still strutting his stuff in the number one spot is Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Moving up from No.3 to No.2 is Grand Theft Auto V whilst FIFA 15 earns a promotion and heads to the No.3 spot from No.4. Sliding all the way down like paint on a wall is Splatoon which has plummeted from No.2 to No.4, where as EA’s latest Battlefield iteration ranks up from No.6 to No.5. Project CARS has moved up the pack from No.7 to No.6 with it’s eyes on a podium spot, however the harvest has failed for Farming Simulator 15 and sees it drop from No.5 to No.7 on the chart. Coming in at No.8 is Destiny which has held its own this week staying firm at that spot. Striking gold and hitting the No.9 spot on the chart is Minecraft: Xbox Edition, we’ll see if they can strike diamond next week. Finally at No.10 we have Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare which has climbed through the ranks all the way from No.15 to No.10.

As for the rest…. you can read it yourself, I’m out of juice.
