3D Dystopian Adventure State of Mind Teaser Trailer Released

Daedalic Entertainment has announced a new project titled State of Mind. You can watch the new trailer in the player above.

Together with Martin Ganteföhr, the studio develops a 3D dystopian adventure with remarkably realistic low poly visuals.

State of Mind is a futuristic 3rd person thriller game exploring into transhumanism.

Combining multiple story layers and characters, the game delves into themes of separation, disjuncture and reunification, in a world that is torn between a dystopian reality and a utopian virtual future.

Although much isn’t given away, the game seems deep, employing multiple playable characters and two separate game worlds, whilst exploring the existential drama that develops in a society on the brink of post-material existence.

State of Mind is scheduled for release at the start of 2017 for PC, Mac, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Explosive Battlefield 1 Trailer Released

EA and Dice have taken us back in time, and released a brand new explosive trailer for Battlefield 1. You can watch it in the player above.

After huge amounts of backlash against the Call Of Duty franchise’s progressively futuristic settings, it seems EA have returned to the FPS genre’s roots and given players what they want. A simple WW1 set shooter, brought in to the 21st century.

Following in the footsteps of past chapters, EA have designed maps with intuitive destruction and now dynamic weather, to ensure that no battle is ever the same.

The Frostbite engine forces players to adapt their tactics to weather changes as the elements will now play a part in the battle, whilst Operations introduces a completely new way to play multiplayer.

In Battlefield 1 you play a series of interconnected battles across multiple fronts.

It’s an exciting prospect to play a sequence of battles where your actions have consequences beyond a single match, as you try to conquer territory or push back your attackers, whilst at the same time blowing through walls to destroy those ever present campers.

“With Battlefield 1 we’re looking to deliver the most dynamic shooter ever. We want to make sure that no battle is ever the same for the players, and with the introduction of Operations, we’re giving the fans variety for game play and creativity,” said Aleksander Grøndal, Senior Producer, DICE

Hopefully this will be a breath of fresh air into what has become a stale genre over the last few years.

Battlefield 1 will launch on 21st October 2016 worldwide on Xbox One, Origin for PC, and PlayStation 4.

Players who pre-order can begin playing as early as 18th October 2016. You can get your hands on Battlefield 1 on Amazon here.

The Language of Love

We get so tied up in life sometimes that so many things get lost.

Simple things in life that we take for granted, and more so than any other, we take people for granted.

Work gets in the way, daily lifestyle choices, hobbies and all sorts of things can make it so difficult for us to actually sit back and relax, then find the things that make us happy.

We take love for granted, we often don’t show it enough, or we don’t show it in the correct way. We put so much emphasis on the bad parts of love, and not enough on the good.

It’s all too easy to fall into that trap. Showing love in different forms can be so easy. Buying things on anniversaries, Christmas, Birthdays etc. is a small, but simple way to show that you care.

The time we spend with people is so limited, and the time we actually spend focusing on our loved ones is extremely limited.

Think about how much you actually sit and make someone feel loved. What attention do you pay them? What do you say to them? All these elements are so important.

For some people it’s really hard to show that love, and for some saying those three words is even harder. And us Brits are the worst at it. We really are stubborn when it comes to showing our romantic side.

This is where fashion brand La Redoute wants to show that there’s more to the French way of life than just the aesthetics.

In this heart warming video, members of the public that find it hard to express their emotions wrote down previously unspoken heartfelt messages to their loved ones and filmed their reactions upon hearing them.

It’s a moving piece of footage, so make sure you have your tissues at the ready.

Listen: Emika – ‘Double Edge’

Darker than a Tim Burton film, ‘Double Edge’ drones within your skull. It’s dub, hypnotic, and haunting. The focus of the sounds within human nature recorded “on a cold winter’s day” trouble you even more when listening to Emika. Its Burial, with a female sat behind the wheel.

Nothing really picks up, there is no dynamic within ‘Double Edge’, but it is artistic and an experience to listen to. The emphasis on “dark” needs to be enhanced and taken on the chin. Some could say a little too disturbing. With no biography, and so much mystery behind Emika, it’s a little intimidating.

She wants to make music that can be listened to, taken away, swirled around and thought about. Intelligent and intriguing, she has dream-like music making qualities which leaves much to the imagination. Just don’t listen to her music whilst walking home late one night; it may be an experience and a half.

There are glitches, vocal drops and a killer piano riff that makes ‘Double Edge’ so haunting. Emika is an artist with some raw distribution of her emotion, delivered in a freaky way. She is an electronic artist on the run from her own fantasies.
