  • So no need to use those pesky emulators with Nvidia graphics card bugs - haha
  • While for the America and Europe version it will be much later as it's targeted around Jan to March of 2019 so mga kabayan abroad will have to wait a bit longer
Monster Hunter Live Movie

  • If you remember Milla Jovovich also starred in the previous Ccapcom movie franchise Resident Evil
  • The Monster Hunter movie will have a 60 million USD budget and is being filmed in South Africa

  • According to the report, this will not be a single Monster Hunter film but is envisioned as series
  • So like Avengers
  • There is currently no release date on when its expected to hit the theaters
  • Also according to the reports, the Resident Evil movie is being rebooted hopefully to a more conventional horror rather than an action flick
Steam Link

  • Valve Software will release the new steam link app for Android, iOS devices, and even tvOS
  • this app will allow PC gamers steam library to be played directly via smartphones making everything basically mobile
  • The app is scheduled to launch at the end of the month during the week of May 21st, with Android support initially offered in beta.
  • What the steam link app does is basically stream your steam library games to your mobile so meaning you will need a fast 5ghz wifi or wired internet connection
  • otherwise, you will notice major input lag making it impossible to play fps games
  • Steam says you can use the Steam Controller, MFI-compatible iOS controllers and more
  • the company hasn't stated if touch devices, Bluetooth or even a ps4 controller if it would work
  • Also steam is planning to launch a Steam Video app for iOS and Android which is similar to YouTube red or Netflix
  • this is aimed at streaming movies and shows on Steam

Black Ops 4 Battle Royale

  • The rumors are true: Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 will have a Battle Royale mode.
  • The mode will include land, sea and air vehicles on a huge map and will span multiple games and heroes, from across Black Ops and Zombies.
  • The mode is called 'Blackout' and it replaces the single-player campaign as one of the "three pillars" of Black Ops.
  • The mode will pull characters and locations from previous games in the subseries
  • Treyarch hasn't mentioned how many players are going to be in the last man standing mode although they mentioned that the map will be 1500 bigger than nuketown
  • They also mentioned that pc players will get dedicated servers with uncapped frame rates
  • Treyarch also stated that they will do the battle royal mode in a Call of Duty style so it's unsure if they are going to use hitscan or projectile bullets
  • since a majority of the weapons in Call of Duty are hitscan based
  • what do you think?
  • the PC version of Black Ops 4 will follow in the footsteps of Destiny 2 and utilize Blizzard’s online infrastructure
  • which means it will be on blizzards BbattleNet pc client, if you check right now you can see black ops ready for pre-order
  • On the downside, Black Ops 4 won't get a single player campaign which is weird since Black Ops is known for its good story missions
  • Black Ops 4 is launching on the PS4, Xbox One, and PC on October 12th.
