Short Pause Gaming Podcast #73: GT Sport Details, Resident Evil 7 at E3, & What is Destiny's "Rise of Iron?"
Brent, Ben, and Frankie get together once again to talk the latest and greatest in the world of gaming. Topics this week include:
- Gran Turismo Sport Arrives November 15th - Gran Turismo Sport was formally unveiled this past week, and Sony's eternally beautiful racer has driving fans eager to play the next iteration in the fabled series. Can this game really achieve 1080p/60fps with new damage and weather effects, and still maintain the graphical fidelity developer Polyphony Digital is known for?
- Rockstar Games' Next Project Will Be Revealed Soon - A Take-Two earnings report claims Rockstar Games' next title will be revealed "soon." By soon, they mean E3, right? Is this new project going to be the long rumored Red Dead Redemption 2?
- Destiny's Next Expansion is "Rise of Iron" - A leaked promotional poster has outed Destiny's next expansion as "Rise of Iron," a content drop which appears to prominently feature Iron Banner host Lord Saladin (seen on the poster wielding a flaming axe of some sort). Will this DLC feature the oft-mentioned Iron Lords? And will this expansion be something comparable to The Taken King in terms of its size?
- Rumor: Resident Evil 7 Will Be Revealed at E3 - Recent rumors peg Capcom's next Resident Evil title as not only making an appearance at E3 in June, but as a title which will return the series to its original horror roots. Will this simply be a continuation of the franchise's convoluted storyline, or will this be a series reboot?
- Batman: Return to Arkham is Finally Official - After weeks of leaks, WB has finally officially confirmed Batman: Return to Arkham as a real title containing remastered versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City. It will hit PS4 and Xbox One on July 26th. Does the fact that this is the first time that a Batman game will be created in Unreal Engine 4 make this a must-play remaster?
- Halo 5's Forge Editor is Coming to PC - Halo 5 is coming to PC...sort of! The game's map creation tool, Forge, will be making its way over to PCs, complete with 4K resolution, mouse and keyboard support, and the ability to test newly created maps with friends on PC. Is this the first step towards Halo 5 being released in its entirety on PC?
- Plus, this week's new releases and much, much MORE!
