GameStop Reveals Last-Minute Holiday Deals

Written By Kom Limpulnam on Rabu, 17 Desember 2014 | 23.37

Still have more holiday shopping to do? If there's a gamer on your list (or if want something new for yourself), GameStop today announced a series of last-minute deals on games and hardware.

Beginning today, December 17, shoppers can pick up Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare for $40. The deal is good in-store and online through GameStop's website, and it applies to all console editions.

GameStop is also now offering Lords of the Fallen for $40 across Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Like the Advanced Warfare deal, the discount doesn't apply to the PC edition of the Dark Souls-esque role-playing game.

If you're in the market for a new Xbox console, GameStop also has a pretty good deal you may want to consider. Beginning December 19, GameStop will throw in a $50 gift card with all new Xbox One purchases, while people who buy a new Xbox 360--the 4 GB model--will get a $30 gift card.

The Xbox hardware deal is valid online only, and you'll need to order by December 22 to be guaranteed that your items will arrive by Christmas.

GameStop isn't the only place to score a good gaming deal today, as Microsoft has launched its Countdown to 2015 Xbox One/360 sale (and weekly deals), while Sony has rolled out week three of its Holiday 2014 sale for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita games.

Check back later today for GameSpot's regular Gaming Deals post, which should go up this afternoon.

Disney's Frozen Comes to LittleBigPlanet

Characters from Disney's Frozen, the highest grossing animated movie of all time, are coming to LittleBigPlanet. Sony has announced a "Frozen Costume Pack" for LittleBigPlanet, featuring costumes that can transform your SackPerson into Frozen characters such as Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff.

The Frozen character costumes are available individually for $2. Alternatively, you can pick up a $6 bundle that includes all Frozen costumes, as well as a bonus costume for the sun-loving snowman, Olaf. He's only available through the bundle--which was a smart move on Sony's behalf, no doubt.

And to help you create winter wonderlands fit for the ice queen herself, Sony has also released a free Winter Creator Kit that gives you all manner of "creative goodies" to help deck out your wintry worlds.

This isn't the first time Sony and Disney have teamed up for a Frozen gaming endeavor, as Sony offered a special edition PlayStation 4 in Japan featuring Frozen laser engravings.

In other LittleBigPlanet news, Sony has already revealed a handful of statistics around the recently released LittleBigPlanet 3. Among the findings is that PS4 is pacing well ahead of PS3 in terms of online players. Check out the infographic below for more.

GameSpot's LittleBigPlanet 3 review scored it a 7.

Magicka 2 Feels at Home on PS4 and is Better With Friends

Magicka 2 includes everything you love about the first Magicka: spells, waves of snarling enemies, and hilarious hijinks brought on by missteps and unforeseen foes. Nearly four years after the release of Magicka, the four-player mayhem is back. Like its predecessor, Magicka 2 will send you through various fantasy environments populated by nasties you can beat down with spells. As a tiny robed wizard, eight spells are available to you, but some can be combined for more creative combinations--for example, mixing a fire spell and a water spell will make steam.

According to publisher Paradox Interactive associate producer Peter Cornelius, the team refers to Magicka 2 as a "competitive co-op game." Multiplayer is definitely where Magicka 2 shines. Friendly fire is present, adding one more thing for you to think about as you face off against waves of enemies. These enemies will become more numerous and a tad more difficult with more players out on the battlefield, so as not to punish those who play alone. But again, having someone there to play with you on the couch or via online matchmaking encourages you to press on. It is competitive in the sense that you want to stay alive and maintain a high score, but at the same time you all need each other to survive.

You have a direct line of sight on a giant cave crab, but your friend is in the way. What do you do: shoot through him and kill him in the process, or wait for a clear shot? Sometimes you've got to go with the former, and it's entirely up to your teammates whether or not they'll grief you for the remainder of the game, pushing you off cliffs and smacking you with explosives out of nowhere. Conversely, you can wait for your friend to get out of the way and work together to find a way to take the crab down. One of you can distract him with spells while another sprays a nearby water wheel, which as it turns lowers a gate that will allow you both to make a getaway.

Magicka 2 feels at home on PlayStation 4, as the way controls have been mapped to the DualShock 4 feels natural. Switching between sets of spells with a trigger press allows for fluid wielding, while using the d-pad to resurrect friends and blast enemies with air is just a quick press away. It all feels very familiar to longtime Magicka fans, and yet the updated look of the game--the shiny new graphics certainly help--makes this sequel feel fresh.

DayZ Video Celebrates Game's First Birthday

As an ARMA II mod, DayZ has been around for years. But one year ago this week, Bohemia Interactive released the DayZ standalone. It's gone on to top the Steam sales chart, selling millions of copies.

But the game's success wasn't always guaranteed, key creative people explain in a new video released to celebrate the game's first birthday.

Check out the video above to hear directly from DayZ creator Dean "Rocket" Hall (who is leaving Bohemia at the end of the month to start a new company), as well as producer Brian Hicks and others.

Hicks explains that the true appeal of DayZ rests in its open-endedness.

"What makes DayZ really unique is it is effectively not as much a game world as it is a toolset for dynamic experiences," Hicks says. "People shape what the game is for them based upon their actions and how they play it. Every time you spawn in a new character, every time you join a fresh server, your experience will be different."

Though Hall is leaving Bohemia, that doesn't mean DayZ development is slowing down. Bohemia has named David Durcak the game's new project lead, and the developer has big plans for the game in 2015.

Bohemia published a new content roadmap for DayZ, following the one we saw last month. Notably, Bohemia is still aiming to have the DayZ console prototype ready in Q3 2015, while the game's full PC release remains scheduled for 2016. Below is the updated DayZ 2015 content roadmap.

First Quarter

  • Basic vehicles
  • Advanced loot distribution
  • New renderer
  • New Infected AI
  • Basic stealth system (infected and animals)
  • Diseases
  • Improved cooking and horticulture
  • Advanced anti-hack system (Dynamic BattlEye)

Second Quarter

  • Advanced vehicles (repair and modifications)
  • Advanced animals (life cycle, group behaviour)
  • Player statistics
  • New UI
  • Player stamina
  • Dynamic events
  • World containers
  • New physics system

Third Quarter

  • Traps
  • Barricading
  • Character life span + soft skills
  • Animal predators + birds
  • Aerial transport
  • Console prototype
  • Advanced communication

Fourth Quarter

  • Animal companions
  • Steam community integration
  • Construction (base building)
  • Beta version

Life is Strange - Trailer

@pongley @arcanitejedi @evil_m3nace I admit my comment was a little  harsh. I have nothing against adventure games. hell one of my fondest gaming memories was with the secret of monkey island and other Lucas Arts works.

But a developer that seems to have the need to cram 2 dozen "statements" from different gaming outlets in 2 minute trailer just to prove their game's worth doesn't strike me as confident in their vision or in their game.

Plus ''it is like gone home" remarks aren't really reassuring.

Watch New Trailer for Square Enix's Time-Traveler, Life is Strange

Square Enix today published a new trailer for Life is Strange, the intriguing-looking, time-travelling game from Remember Me developer Dontnod Entertainment. The trailer sets up a bit of the game's story, which follows a young woman with time-bending powers. Something violent and dramatic happens in the video, but with the ability to rewind time, the event can be undone.

In announcing Life is Strange during Gamescom in August, Square Enix teased, "With the power to rewind time, what would you change? And would it turn out to be a change for the better or worse?"

The publisher has also said that every action you take will kick off the butterfly effect, an idea that posits that even the smallest of changes can have dramatic and significant effects later on.

Not only will Life if Strange offer some interesting gameplay, but the game itself looks lovely. That's because every single texture in Life is Strange was hand drawn, Square Enix claims.

The trailer is really well done, and the song--"Obstacles" from Syd Matters--really ties it all together.

Life is Strange--which is coming to Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and PC in 2015--will be released digitally using an episodic model beginning with episode one on January 30. Every new chapter will build and evolve on the choices you made in the past episode, Square Enix says.

Square Enix also confirmed pricing details for Life is Strange. There will be five episodes in all, which you can purchase individually for $5 each. Alternatively, you can buy all five for $20.

Uncharted 4 Images Highlight PS4's Power

Not only did Naughty Dog share the world premiere of Uncharted 4: A Thief's End gameplay during the PlayStation Experience last weekend, but the developer also gave fans a deep look into how the power of the PlayStation 4 has allowed the studio to significantly boost Nathan Drake's visual appearance.

During the panel, "Modeling Nathan Drake: Bringing an Iconic Character to PS4," Naughty Dog artists and modelers offered a behind-the-scenes look at how they built the new version of Drake. Uncharted fans will definitely want to watch the hour-long video.

As part of the presentation, the Naughty Dog staffers revealed a series of images of the Drake character model for Uncharted 4, and also some Uncharted 3 comparisons. Check out the image gallery above to see the nearly 20 images, and be sure to click each thumbnail to see a full-size version.

Overall, Naughty Dog says it was aiming for a "filmic, cinematic" look for Uncharted 4. As such, the studio has gone to great lengths to make Drake--and presumably other characters--look and act lifelike in the game.

Drake's character model in Uncharted 4 depicts a more aged version of the well-known treasure hunter. His face is bruised and he looks pained. The PlayStation Experience presentation was focused on technical advancements, and not much about the game's story. However, Naughty Dog said previously that Uncharted 4 will be a "more personal" story that dives into "what kind of effect this journey has on [Drake] and the people around him."

The Drake model is so detailed that you can see sweat on his forehead, stubble, and even chest hair. Naughty Dog also points out that Drake has 850 possible facial animations in Uncharted 4, compared to 120 in Uncharted 3.

Uncharted 4 launches in 2015 exclusively for PS4. For more, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
