Rockstar rumored to be chasing cross-play for Red Dead Redemption 2

      Rockstar has always been that company to listen to the fans and give them exactly what they want. Grand Theft Auto V is a prime example of this. With free DLC’s, free online play, new content every couple months, and extremely unique storylines. It seems like Rockstar knows how to give fans a well-rounded perfect game. Which is also why Red Dead Redemption 2 seems to be one of the most hotly anticipated upcoming titles. A tip from a “very reputable source” from Rockstar suggests the company is actively pursuing cross-play across Xbox and Playstation 4 for Red Dead Redemption 2. Yep, you read that correctly. Rockstar was rumored to have pushed back the release date of Red Dead Redemption 2 because they want the game to feature cross play. For those of you that don’t know, Sony has been fighting against cross-play by using almost every excuse in the book.

      In other games, like Rocket League and Minecraft, Microsoft and Nintendo have worked together, giving gamers the ability to play together regardless of their platform preference. Sony though seems to be fighting against it by dragging their feet. According to the VP of publishing for Psyonix, the company that develops Rocket League, they’ve been in constant communication with Sony to try to get them on board with cross-play.  In an interview with Engadget, Jeremy Dunham had this to say “There have been slight variations on how it’s been presented to us, but essentially it’s the same answer,” he told Engadget. “It’s, ‘Not right now” or, ‘It’s something we’ll consider.’ That’s paraphrasing, but there hasn’t been any movement.”

    So the question then becomes, Can Rockstar be the company to finally get Sony into cross-play? Rockstar has had a close relationship to the company for many years. From Grand Theft Auto to Bully, and now the Red Dead series. Sony is even playing for Red Dead 2 to have a “timed-exclusive” DLC. Rockstar has decided to push back the release of the game from Holiday 2017 to Spring of 2018. While we know that games are more likely to get pushed back these days, Could the reason be because Rockstar is pushing Sony for cross-play?  The news of Red Dead Redemption 2 being the first game to support cross-play with Xbox and Playstation 4 could be game changing. Something that I hope can be worked out. How awesome would that be?

Releasing Spring of 2018

   Only time will tell but it seems like the other companies have started the journey into the cross-play realm. Bringing gamers from all different platforms together to share experiences. Do you think Sony needs to join the cross-play club?

Evaluating Fallout 76’s Value in 2024

If you’ve been keeping up with the new Fallout show on Amazon Prime, chances are you’ve been relying on PS Plus Extra and PS Plus Premium to access and enjoy one of Bethesda’s legendary RPGs. We decided to bypass the highly acclaimed Fallout New Vegas and Fallout 3, opting instead to explore the vast landscapes of West Virginia in Fallout 76. Infamous for its initial reception, Todd Howard’s “Fallout with Friends” has evolved significantly over the past six years. However, does that imply the game is of high quality? Is it worth playing in 2024?

As we ventured out of Vault 76 for the very first time, we were determined to find the answers to those burning questions. Recalling our escapades on the Push Square YouTube channel, we encountered quest-giving NPCs—a feature that was surprisingly absent upon release—awe-inspiring bases built by fellow players—and an abundance of loot that could easily burden us 76 times over.

In the midst of the vast array of open-world online experiences, we found ourselves quite enthralled by the combination of 50s classics playing in the background as we obliterated the heads of ghouls. And to top it off, we were able to enjoy all of this with our friends. Exploring the wasteland in the company of a ragtag band of survivors adds a unique element to Fallout 76, setting it apart from other games in the series. However, does it manage to prevent us from uninstalling and transitioning to one of the mainline entries in the series? To discover more, be sure to watch the complete video!

After a long wait, it appears that the search for a capable Hollywood actor to bring the brooding Shadow the Hedgehog to life has come to an end. Keanu Reeves, a renowned actor known for his iconic roles in film franchises such as The Matrix and John Wick, as well as his involvement in the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077, has officially been cast for the role.

Speculation has been running wild lately, but The Hollywood Reporter has officially confirmed the casting, citing reliable sources in the know. News of Sonic the Hedgehog 3 being showcased at Cinemacon has quickly spread. Reeves is sure to bring his own special touch to the role, but it’s uncertain how well he will mesh with the mustachioed Dr. Robotnik, as Jim Carrey is set to reprise the character.
