IGN.com - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 12:36

Zen Studios is delaying the release of Pinball FX 2 on Xbox One to implement the functionality that lets players transfer their Xbox 360 tables onto Microsoft's new platform for free.

The announcement came courtesy of the Zen Studios blog, where the company said that it's been working with Microsoft to make table transfers to Xbox One a reality for Pinball FX 2. Originally, this import option wasn't going to be available.

Guardians of the Galaxy Animated Series Announced

IGN.com - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 12:15

At the Marvel Animation panel at SDCC this past weekend, Marvel revealed some details about the upcoming seasons of three of its current shows and ended their presentation by showing a clip of a new series based on the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy film. First up was the premiere of a new episode of Ultimate Spider-Man Web Warriors, which will begin its third season on Disney XD in September.

The episode shows the beginning of a "Spider Verse" arc that comic book fans are already familiar with. Green Goblin uses Electro's power to open up wormholes into various alternate realities. When Spider-Man follows, he encounters Spider-Man 2099 in one reality, and Petra Parker in a female-dominated society. Each reality has its own animation style as well. Later, they even showed a clip Spider-Man in a wacky adventure with Spider-Ham (Peter Porker). While that arc is slated for next year, the series will start with Spiderman joining the Avengers, and fans can expect to see other favorite characters like Nova, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.

How to Learn New Heroes in MOBAs

IGN.com - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 12:00

Welcome to Courier's Corner, IGN's MOBA-centric letter series. This week, IGN Editors Mitch Dyer and Brian Albert discuss the challenges (and potential solutions) of learning to play new Heroes in MOBAs.

Brian,

Learning is hard.

I have started to press the “Select a Random Hero” button every time I start a new Dota 2 match. I’d spent 50 matches in a row playing the same small number of characters before deciding it was time to branch out. I’m partially addicted to the bonus gold I get for playing a random Hero, partially in love with discovering their intricacies, partially in love with not knowing what I’m getting into.

Homefront: The Revolution Now Property of Deep Silver

IGN.com - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 11:12

Deep Silver has announced it's acquired all rights to the Homefront franchise from Crytek, and will now be in charge of development of the upcoming Homefront: The Revolution.

The publisher best known for Dead Island and Saints Row has confirmed it's opening a new studio in Nottingham, England, to continue the project, and will also be picking up "all coherent assets from Crytek".

At this stage it isn't clear if the new studio, called Dambuster Studios, is made from the remnants of Crytek UK, which was where Homefront: The Revolution was being developed and is also based in Nottingham. Given there have been multiple reports of problems at Crytek UK, including rumours that the entire staff stopped working, it does seem that the studio has reformed under Deep Silver's banner.

Destiny: The Endgame is Only the Beginning – IGN First

IGN.com - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 11:00

The Destiny you play after 20 hours is likely to be very different than the Destiny you play up until then, if Bungie’s Luke Smith has any say in the matter (spoiler: he does).

“I think Destiny's endgame begins as soon as you see the way the story ends,” Smith begins. “As soon as you see the way we wrap up the sort of first piece of the adventure that we're going to tell because we want to set you back out into the world to keep going. We want to try to align your motivations as the player with the motivations of the character who you've been pushing around this world. So for us I think a bunch of the endgame starts right at level 20.”

A big part of this is raids.

Sony has announced what titles will be coming to PS Plus subscribers in August, with two of the games available through the service the day they release.

PS3 gamers meanwhile will get a chance to sink their teeth into Crysis 3 or, if that's not to their taking, the experimental exploration game Proteus.

Last but by no means least, Vita owners will be able to try out Metrico... which is pretty impressive seeing as the game doesn't officially release until next month.

Activision Blizzard has announced over 4.6 million Guardians took part in the recent Destiny beta.

The exact figure came in at 4,638,937, which is pretty astonishing considering how short a period it was available for. The beta kicked off on Sony platforms on July 17, before coming to Xbox owners the following week.

Bungie COO Pete Parsons said, "We were totally blown away by the number of people who played the beta. We surpassed even our own goals and the feedback was invaluable. We cannot thank the community enough, the response was humbling and in the weeks ahead we’ll be working hard to ensure that Destiny lives up to the expectations at launch.”
