Players can watch Sparc matches in-person and queue up for the next match through “Courtside,” a freeform social area that allows for spectating in VR.

Bravo Team PSVR E3 2017 Trailer

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

PlayStation VR had a substantial presence during PlayStation’s E3 2017 press conference. One of the highlights for the PSVR games is being developed by Supermassive Games called Bravo Team. Bravo Team is a tactical cover-base first person shooter set to release at a To Be Announced(TBA) date. Even without a release date/window, this is a title PSVR owners should definitely keep their eyes on.

Features

  • TEAMWORK: Teamwork is at the core of the game. Bravo Team has been developed to allow both single player and online 2 player co-op. Player co-operation is key. Verbal communication between players is essential to make the decisions you need to survive and avoid (or navigate) enemy detection.
  • INTENSE IMMERSIVE ACTION: Bravo Team takes you on a heart-pumping journey of intense combat and split-second decision making. With the feel of an action movie, Bravo Team offers exciting combat situations, multiple scenario outcomes and a seamless, continuous environment to create a wholly immersive experience.
  • TOTAL CONTROL: Bravo Team puts you directly into the action. You’ll need to lean round corners to take out targets or duck for cover if under fire. You’ll raise the aim controller to view through the iron sight or hold above your head to blind fire.
  • DECISIONS UNDER FIRE: You’ll make constant split-second tactical decisions about when to take cover, when to reload and when to engage. Should you lay down suppressing fire or try a different route? Who takes that new weapon? Players will need to think fast and act quickly to survive.

Call of Duty: The Shift Back To its Roots

“No Mission Too Difficult. No Sacrifice Too Great. Duty First!” – Motto of the Army 1st ID aka Big Red 1

It has been a long time coming for COD to return back to WWII, 9 years when the newest game releases, and a much-awaited return to a more grounded COD experience. The reveal today gave me hope for the franchise once again as a long time fan dating all the way back to 2003 with the first release. Sledgehammer has the potential to deliver one of the greatest WWII experiences in video game history as the reveal trailer was nothing short of Saving Private Ryan, which honestly kick started my whole appreciation and fascination with the WWII era.   Continue reading “Call of Duty: The Shift Back To its Roots”
