The Crew

Namaste !! Hello !!

Welcome back guys. Here, I am, with a new game, with a new excitement, with a new racing experience. So, lets hear another one from Ubisoft – The Crew.

So basically, it’s a racing,arcade game from Ivory Tower and Ubisoft Reflections , published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, with an Xbox 360 port being developed by Asobo Studio.

The Crew is an open and persistent world for racing across the United States. It takes about 45 minutes to drive from coast to coast in-game. Well, The single-player campaign is 20 hours long, and entails infiltrating criminal groups with protagonist Alex Taylor (Troy Baker). Moving on to the “Plot”, the story beings with Alex Taylor being pursued by local law enforcement, he receives a call from Harry who wants him to participate in a race in Detroit.

After losing the cops, he finds the Camaro that Harry loans him. Harry explains to him that Alex’s older brother Dayton wants to speak with him. Alex participates and wins the race that Harry had told him about. After his win, Dayton arrives and orders Alex to drive him to the bridge. Once there, Dayton tells him to keep his head down. A vehicle pulls up, Dayton goes and talks with the driver before walking back to the Camaro however before he can get there, the driver he had just spoken to shoots him and drives off. Alex rushes to Dayton’s side as the police arrive. The police restrain Alex as Dayton dies. Alex is charged and later convicted of Dayton’s murder by Special Agent Coburn and is sent to prison.

5 years later, An FBI agent by the name of Zoe pays a visit to Alex in prison and claims that she can help him clear his name. Zoe explains that she is after “Shiv” the king of the 510 motor club and rogue FBI agent Coburn who was the man that put Alex in prison. Zoe also reveals that Shiv is Dayton’s true killer and that he can help her put him and Coburn behind bars. Alex accepts the deal and agrees to help Zoe. After exiting prison, Zoe hooks him with a car that he can use. And believe me guys, there’s a lot to it.

Development :

The Ivory Tower development team includes former Eden Games employees, and is receiving assistance from Ubisoft Reflections. The game plans to use the new consoles’ social and cooperative play features.

On 13 August 2014, Ubisoft confirmed that the game will be released on the Xbox 360 the same date as the other versions, with Asobo Studio leading the development and Ivory Tower, Ubisoft Reflections and Ubisoft Shanghai providing support.The reason Ubisoft is porting the game to the Xbox 360 but aren’t doing so for Wii U and PlayStation 3 is because the Xbox 360 is closer to “new-gen’ technical infrastructure”. The Crew used Babel as its video game engine modified with Ivory Tower’s proprietary tools.

And guys, honestly , don’t know much about it either. But yeah, a friend recommended me this cool game, must play !!!  So folks, thanks to that mahn. I can tell ya guys..Well, I think there’s an end to everything. Have a great day. So long!

GTA V – Grand Theft Auto V

Welcome back, as you all know me up till now ,I am Dhrumil Shah. So,coming back to our blog, let’s talk about ‘GTA 5‘ . Umm…so, first of all, starting with the a little intro on GTA….The Grand Theft Auto series is considered by Rockstar Games to be split into separate graphics capability used in each era. The original Grand Theft Auto, its expansions and its sequel are considered the “2D universe”.Grand Theft Auto III and its prequels are considered the “3D universe”. Grand Theft Auto IV, its expansions and Grand Theft Auto V are considered the “High-definition universe”. Each universe is considered separate with only brands, place names and background characters shared between them.

Reading towards GTA 5, it is an open world, action-adventure video game developed by Rockstar North and published by Rockstar Games. It was released on 17 September 2013 for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and on 18 November 2014 for the PlayStation 4and Xbox One. It is scheduled to be released on 27 January 2015 for Microsoft Windows. The game is the first main entry in theGrand Theft Auto series since 2008’s Grand Theft Auto IV. Set within the fictional state of San Andreas (based on Southern California), the single-player story follows three criminals and their efforts to commit heists while under pressure from a government agency. The open world design lets players freely roam San Andreas, which includes open countryside and the fictional city of Los Santos (based on Los Angeles).

PLOT :  

Nine years after a botched robbery in Ludendorff, North Yankton, former bank robber Michael Townley is living under witness protection with his family in Los Santos, San Andreas, under the alias Michael De Santa. When Michael discovers his wife Amanda in bed with her tennis coach, he chases the coach to a mansion and destroys it out of anger. The mansion’s owner is Mexican drug lord Martin Madrazo’s girlfriend. Madrazo demands compensation, so Michael and his accomplice Franklin Clinton perform a jewelry shop heist to pay their debt. Michael’s sole surviving partner in the Ludendorff robbery, Trevor Philips, hears of the jewelry heist and realises that it was Michael’s handiwork. The two reunite after Trevor tracks Michael down in Los Santos.

Development :   

Rockstar North began to develop Grand Theft Auto V in 2009, following the release of Grand Theft Auto IV. Development was conducted by a team of more than 1,000 people, including Rockstar North’s core team and staff from parent company Rockstar Games‘s studios around the world. The game runs on the proprietary Rockstar Advanced Game Engine (RAGE), which was overhauled for the game to improve its draw distance rendering capabilities. The Euphoria and Bullet software handle additional animation and rendering tasks. Having become familiar with the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 hardware over time, Rockstar found they were able to push the graphical capabilities of the consoles further than in previous games. Analyst estimations place the game’s combined development and marketing budget at more than £170 million (US $265 million), which would make it the most expensive game ever made at that time.

Additional Content :

To top it all guys, there’s more to it. Like I said, it’s awesome…wait ! didn’t I? Anyways, we have here melee attacks to destroy enemies, firearms and explosives to fight enemies and may run, jump, swim or use vehicles to navigate the world. In combat, auto-aim and a cover system can be used as assistance against enemies.

Sales :

Within 24 hours of its release, Grand Theft Auto V generated more than $800 million in worldwide revenue, equating to approximately 11.21 million copies sold for Take Two. The numbers nearly doubled analysts’ expectations for the title. Three days after release, the game had surpassed one billion dollars in sales, making it the fastest selling entertainment product in history.

Guys, GTA 5 received multiple nominations and awards for gaming publications…I don’t know about it and if u wanna know google it !! hehe..!! My mama yelling at me and she’s like, “Don’t Get Your Knickers in a Twist”…so,I’ll meet you next time ,with new game specs,game reviews,and much more..so STAY TUNE !!!

Watch Dogs !!

Namaste !! Hello !!

As promised, here you go !! I bet the real gamers would know this game, as it’s one of the best games of Ubisoft (publisher).  Mahn, you guys have a pretty good taste,picking on such a realistic,incredible game. It was released worldwide on 27 May 2014 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, while a Wii U version was released on 18 November 2014 in North America, 21 November in Europe, and 4 December in Japan.

So, for starters, let’s share the game’s story..!! The game is played from a third-person perspective and its world is navigated on-foot or by vehicle. The single-player story follows a hacker and his efforts to seek revenge after the accidental death of his niece. Player control Aiden Pearce, a highly skilled grey hat hacker who can hack into the “ctOS”, a centralized operating system which manages the hyper-connected city of Chicago, and formed after a Northeast blackout of 2003 was caused by a hacker.

I must admit that people who love hacking, will love this fuckin’ cool game..!! I mean, I love it!! :p  Further, this game is tricky..umm..I would say we gotta be more smarter in some missions..!! Well, missions where we have to stay on toes,hiding from enemies,remain covered…is the best part of all..!! Playing snoozy snoozy game..and killing the enemies..shows the game has some strength.

GOING DEEP :-

  • Development :   Ubisoft Montreal began development on Watch Dogs in 2009. Ubisoft Montreal’s creative director Jonathan Morin noted that Watch Dogs is designed to “go beyond the limits of today’s open world games”, referencing both its use of information as a plot point, and allowing players to control the entire city through its hacking mechanics. For Watch Dogs, Ubisoft Montreal built a new game engine called Disrupt. In order to achieve realism in the game’s hacking mechanic, the game production team worked with Russian anti-virus firm Kaspersky Lab. The developers sent some of the game designs to Kaspersky.

 

  • 5 Reasons you should play Watch Dogs :
  1. Real Deal Chicago : Playing a game in a real life environment adds a level of immersion that can’t be beat. And I bet Chicago is one of the most amazing places in my dictionary worth visiting. So, developing a game having an environment of REAL CHICAGO ; AWESOME !!!
  2. Sharp Looking Graphics Bring Chicago to LifeAlright, score one for PC players when it comes to the graphics in Watch Dogs. As it turns out, Ubisoft worked closely with NVIDIA to ensure the game is one of the most beautiful you can find, utilizing the HBAO+ technology that focuses on more realistic shadowing.
  3. Ubisoft Delayed Watch Dogs to Make it Great : Well, there are two main reasons that we see as positives. First, delaying a game extends its development, which means there’s more time to iron out the bugs and polish things up. Second, it means the studio is willing to admit the game wasn’t good enough, and will use this extra time to improve its quality. And delaying it, Ubisoft paid off!!
  4. You Can Hack Anything :   You can hack anything and anyone. Each person in the game has a unique back story. Players should still use caution, however. Cross the wrong person and you might find a bounty on your head. Still, digging into virtual people’s lives never seemed more appealing.
  5. Boss… I Need a Month Off :  The creative director of the game stated that the story will take about 35 to 40 hours. Assuming you don’t need to sleep, eat or spend time with the important people in your life, that’s still upwards of two days. At a time when it’s become normal to see four-to-five hour campaigns, this should be enough content to keep players busy.

Let’s Get Started – An Intro

Before beginning, just want to let you know that I’m a bit more frank in writing stuffs so my blogs are gonna be little informal ! Yeah.. so to the little guys out there…here I am, and there you are!! I am, Mr. Dhrumil Shah ,a 17 year old from India. Umm…recently, I am pursuing my computer engineering diploma course from Thakur Polytechnic. Secured agg. 78 % in first year,currently in 2nd year,of course. My life is all about Football and Games. I’d rather not imagine a life without it. I live in Mumbai,India. Well, this was my short intro. So, now , let’s cut the red tape and finally get down to business !!

I ask you guys, yes, I’m talking to the gamers out there…do we have a perfect platform to share our thoughts on games?? I say,no. And so, I thought I could be of some help to the gamers and myself too…and here we are !! Booted my lappy on, thought about creating my own blog(only for gamers and games)…putting up everything that I wanted people to know about different games. Sniff….sniff…do I smell curiosity??  You guys must be bored till now…so to make it a little interesting, how about you answer my question and make your mind go BOOOOM!!!!  

I know that playing games is cool…but you should trust me on this, that developing a game and calling it our “OWN GAME” is way too cooler than the same. I’ve started with a great idea on developing games. Different platforms. Different concepts. More on that,later. The question is, who wants to make games on Android, IOS,Consoles,etc.?? The feeling of calling it my own game is like being on “CLOUD 1000000 !!! ” . Yeah,yeah …hold your horses !!! It’s not too easy to develop a game….either in android,IOS or ant other platforms…but yeah,it’s not that tough too!!  Believe me guys…it’s no joke..!! I’ve known what it feels to tell people that, “Yeah, you see this?? It’s my own conceptual game !! I MADE IT !! Isn’t it amazing?? ” Developing a game needs patience,perseverance and yeah of course the talent !!!! 

A SPECIAL NOTE : Every person living in this world can develop games,so, it isn’t anything like “Hell,what ?? Games ?? It’s not my CUP OF TEA” !! Have faith in yourself and rock it..!!  

But, it doesn’t mean that I won’t be entertaining other people by updating more on games and letting people and me too know about cool stuffs….Anybody interested in joining my team….here you go..!! You may become a programmer, artist, a game designer or a database manager ,etc . Have Interest ,ring me up…!! (have a look at CONTACT DETAILS)

UPCOMING BLOG : Next blog is gonna be about the game Watch Dogs…Stay Tune !! 

 And guys…I really want people to know about this wonderful website so that unknown people become known !! So, spread the word guys!!! Ending my first blog here….this is Dhrumil Shah, thanks folks for your valuable time!!
