Hello Games, developer of Joe Danger, has announced today on VGX the next gen title No Man’s Sky.  The game will be a science fiction featuring a huge universe that encourages exploration with multiple planets to explore from top to bottom.  The game promises that the stars in the sky are suns featuring planets that can be explored with a “living” persistent world.  It looks like a game with a lot of promise and I’ll be sure to post more regarding this game when more details become available.

Tomb Raider : Definitive Edition announced for next gen

TombRaider

Tomb Raider was released earlier this year and was well received.  Personally, I found the game to be the best I’ve played this year and easily one of the best on this current generation of gaming platforms.  It had some of the best action platforming I’ve ever experienced and was a much-needed reboot to a stagnating gaming franchise.  Needless to say, I’m ready to get stranded on a hostile island with Lara Croft again with the power of the new game consoles.  The game will feature improved graphics with some of the highlights being a completely reconstructed face for Lara as well as more realistic hair effects.  From the trailer that was shown on VGX, it wasn’t terribly mind-blowing with the graphical improvements, but the hair does look good.  The game will be released on Xbox One and PS4 and will be available next month.
