DmC: Definitive Edition and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition Coming to PS4 and Xbox One
Capcom has revealed that two remastered Devil May Cry titles, DmC: Definitive Edition and Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition, are making their way to current-gen platforms in 2015.
So far, few details about Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition have been released. However, DmC: Definitive Edition will include DmC: Devil May Cry and all DLC running at 1080p and 60fps. The Definitive Edition will also have new Turbo, Hardcore, and Must Style game modes in addition to a Gods Must Die difficulty level.

DmC: Definitive Edition is coming to PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on March 17, 2015 for $39.99/£29.99. No release date for Devil May Cry 4 Special Edition has been announced.

Transformers Universe MMO Is Shutting Down
The developers of Transformers Universe have announced that the game will be shutting down.
First announced in 2011, Transformers Universe was to be a free-to-play MMO set in the lore of the popular Transformers television, comic, and movie franchise.
Now Jagex and Hasbro have confirmed the game is being canceled while still in beta testing, saying: "We’re hugely disappointed, but the game will be closing over the coming weeks before its full closure at 10am GMT [5am EST, 2am PST, or 9pm Australian] on 31st January 2015."
The company said it wanted to thank its fans for their interest, especially those who participated in the beta test, and promised refunds to any beta testers who bought Founder's Packs, Starter Packs, or Relics.
While Jagex didn't give any specifics about why the game was shut down, the announcement mentions that both Jagex and Hasbro are realigning their businesses for 2015, which could mean a move away from licensed games or that the beta test wasn't showing signs of creating a profitable game.
Whatever the cause, the developers say they understand that people are going to be upset but asked that fans “bear in mind that this is obviously a challenging time for all involved, especially the CM team. There will be plenty of things we can’t comment on, so please respect their position.”

Forza Horizon 2: Storm Island DLC
Forza Horizon 2's newest DLC pack, Storm Island, is now available and comes with a slew of new content for Forza fans.

The expansion also features new online content including four new multiplayer Playground arenas, 20 unique online race routes, six Gauntlet events, three new Showdown events, and five online championship events.
What would a Forza expansion be without new cars? Forza 2: Storm Island features five new rides including a 2013 Robby Gordon #7 Speed Energy Drink Stadium Super Truck, 2013 MINI X-Raid All4 Racing Countryman, 2014 Ford Ranger T6 RallyRaid, 1981 Ford Fiesta XR2, 1992 Mitsubishi Galant VR-4. There's also a new barn find car included in the expansion.
A slew of new vehicle upgrades are part of the expansion as well. New off-road suspension, tire, and transmission upgrades, in addition to a new rally-inspired body kit, can be applied to a number of Forza Horizon 2 vehicles.
Last but not least, Forza Horizon 2: Storm Island comes with 23 brand-new Xbox achievements.
Forza Horizon 2: Storm Island is available now exclusively for Xbox One for $20 USD, or $10 USD for Forza Horizon 2 VIP members.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Heists (Finally) Revealed
To say we've waited a long time for multiplayer Heists to get added (for free, by the way) into Grand Theft Auto Online would be the understatement of the year. The bad news is that we still don't have a concrete date for when it's finally happening. The good news, however, is that we do now have a killer trailer showing them off as well as an interview with GTA Online producer and lead mission designer Imran Sarwar, who was kind enough to answer our (many) questions about this high-concept feature.
interview here.

Here is you first peak at the new site chat that we will be using.

  • Private chat
  • Chat Room(s) - User create-able
  • Voice/video chat - Web Only
  • Mobile friendly
  • pop-out
  • Notifications

Honestly we would like the whole clan to use this as our main chat. We will have the ubiquitous main chat room for shenanigans and Lala's trolling. But also plan to have a least one room for party invites. For example: "I am getting on COD on Xbox in 30 who wants to party up." Even we can do some sort of shortcode "Destiny/Xbone/Vault/Grex/now"

PS4 Getting Swappable Faceplates
If you're looking to trick out your PS4, Sony has you covered. Today, the company announced two game-themed faceplates for the PS4, with more designs on the way.
Pictured below, the faceplates available now are for The Order: 1886 and Little Big Planet 3. They cost $25 USD each, and they're only available from the online Sony Store in very limited supply.
The faceplates are part of Project Skylight, which Sony says will fully launch in the future with more faceplates and "other fun enhancements to this personalization initiative."

Borderlands Online Coming to China Next Year
Chinese developer Shanda Games announced Borderlands Online today, a PC and mobile title created alongside Gearbox Studios and 2K Games.
Borderlands Online is being made exclusively for Chinese markets, Kotaku reports. It's set for launch sometime in 2015, and while it's unclear whether it will fit into the wider Borderlands mythos, it will include the Borderlands formula of four playable characters. Specifically, what appear to be a soldier, hunter, siren and berserker, according to the press release circulated by Chinese Press.
Borderlands Online will be free-to-play, much like Call of Duty Online, which is scheduled to enter open beta in China early next year. Footage surfaced more than two years ago, revealing that investment company Tencent had exclusive rights to operate Call of Duty Online in mainland China.
Activision said Call of Duty Online could help the publisher tap into its "potential largest player base," and it appears 2K and Gearbox may be making similar maneuvers with Borderlands Online.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Release Date Delayed Again
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt has experienced a second delay until May 19, 2015, developer CD Projekt Red has announced.
An open letter explains the game's ambition means there are still bugs that need to be fixed and some features are not yet working correctly. As a result, the game has been pushed back by 12 weeks.
"Ever since we started working on The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, we knew it would be an ambitious game," it begins. "We wanted, and still aim, to give you an incredible experience, an epic adventure in a vast, completely open fantasy universe.“
Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks.
"The sheer size and complexity of The Witcher, key features of the title, have had a decisive impact on production. Now, nearing the end of our work, we see many details that need to be corrected. When we release the most important game in our studio’s history, we must be absolutely sure that we did everything we could to limit any bugs to a level that will allow you to enjoy the game thoroughly.
"With this in mind, we took another look at current workloads and what they mean for the team. Even though everyone is working at full speed, we concluded that we need another 12 weeks, so we are shifting the release date of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt to May 19th, 2015.
"We owe you an apology. We set the release date too hastily. It’s a hard lesson, one to take to heart for the future. We know what we want to do to make Wild Hunt one of the best RPGs you will ever play. And we continue to work hard to achieve just that. So, we apologize and ask for your trust."
Seeing as the upcoming RPG will have over 100 hours of content along with and an all-star cast, it isn't surprising that CD Projekt Red is taking its time to make sure the game is all it can be.

Has Hideo Kojima Revealed The Release Date For Metal Gear Solid 5?
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has caused a flurry of speculation regarding Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain's release date.
At The Game Awards in Las Vegas last week, Kojima took to the stage to announce the upcoming title's multiplayer portion, Metal Gear Online, which is set to be bundled in with all copies of MGS V. He did so while wearing a T-shirt that's leading many on Reddit to speculate The Phantom Pain will arrive on June 22, 2015.
The T-shirt looked to bear the words "tjugoandra den sjätte", which is Swedish for "twenty-second and sixth". I you remember, Kojima teased The Phantom Pain by creating a fake Swedish development studio called Moby Dick Studios. With Kojima fairly notorious for tricking his fans and revealing things by hiding them in plain sight, it's unsurprising that this has caused so much speculation.

Xbox Head Phil Spencer On Street Fighter 5's Exclusivity
Microsoft's Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, has weighed in on Street Fighter V's PlayStation 4 and PC exclusivity.
"Business deals happen. We won't do all of them. When we have a first party franchise in a genre I'd rather invest in ours," Spencer said on Twitter, when asked what he thought of the announcement.
The first party fighting franchise Spencer speaks of is, of course, Killer Instinct -- which Microsoft acquired with the purchase of Rare back in 2002.
With the game due out at some stage next year, hopefully it won't be too long before we get official news one way or the other.

PSN Holiday Sale Week 2

Tekken Boss Responds to Fan Backlash Regarding Lucky Chloe
Speaking via Twitter, Harada was told that Western fans were "not happy" with the Lucky Chloe character model, before being linked to a post on NeoGAF.
"By the way, are you 'Western' only one bulletin board?" says Harada. "Hello small world. I'll make muscular & skinhead character for you. Remember, I said we've more new characters and She is ONE on THEM."
Fielding another question, this time asking for an option to 'delete' certain characters – namely Lucky Chloe – from the active roster, Harada said that Lucky Chloe is exclusive for East Asia and Europe.
"Calm down and don't worry. That character [is] East Asia and Europe 'Exclusive.' And I'll say again, we've more new characters in [Tekken 7]. She is JUST one of them, and she will be country exclusive (or region exclusive). We [won't] include her for your region. That's why I said 'calm down and don't worry.'"
When asked by another user why North America won't be seeing a release of Lucky Chloe, Harada reiterated his stance, then explained he'll release a different character specifically designed with the NA territory in mind.
"Because you don't need that character right? It's simple thing. And I'll say 'Don't worry' again. I'll release another character for you guys. I said we've more new characters. Example: Looks well-muscled, Skin-head, Very powerful attack (I don't like this idea but if you need)."

German Traffic Light Uses Pong to Deter Jaywalking
German design group Urban Invention has created a tool that lets pedestrians play Pong as they wait to cross the street.
The device is called ActiWait, and it replaces the usual 'Walk' button found at traffic lights with a touchscreen featuring a Pong-inspired game. Pedestrians can play against someone across the street as the device counts down until the next green light.
Aside from being a creative idea, Urban Invention says ActiWait has potential to save lives by keeping pedestrians from jaywalking. To widen its appeal, the company is looking to add other apps to the device, such as speed dating and update-to-date news.
A working prototype is currently installed in the the city of Hildesheim, Germany and developers are looking to take it elsewhere. The company recently launched an Indiegogo campaign for $43,000/€35,000 that would fund further development and production.

New Multiplayer Add-Ons Announced for The Last of Us: Remastered
Naughty Dog Software has announced that some new multiplayer mode add-ons are coming to The Last of Us: Remastered.
The DLC is revealed in depth at the PlayStation blog and includes new weapons, survival skills, masks, and more.
Some "very visceral, very lethal" Special Executions are now available across nine weapon categories for $1 USD.
For $3, you can grab a Tactical Weapons bundle which includes a tactical shotgun, a burst pistol, a frontier rifle, and even a crossbow.
The $4 Risk Management Survival Skills bundle includes new survival skills such as Second Chance, which gives you a free health kit when you have none and take more than half damage.
And then, of course, there's a new bundle of headgear. The Misfit Head Item bundle includes stylish accessories such as a viking hat, a smiley mask, and ski goggles.

Classic Maps May Be Coming to Battlefield 4
DICE plans on bringing more content to Battlefield 4, the developer announced today.
At this time, it's unknown exactly what the content is, or when it will be released. However, a post on Battlelog hints that the content may include the reimagining of classic Battlefield maps. The developer asks fans to vote for which maps they'd like to see brought back from previous Battlefield games. DICE states more specific information will be revealed "in the near future."

Twitch on Xbox One is Getting a Hefty Update
The Twitch app on Xbox One is getting a update to make it easier for Xbox Twitch users to find what they want to watch.
The new update will also use Xbox Live to associate real-time gameplay statistics with Twitch broadcasts.
What does that mean exactly? Well, should a viewer want to watch a specific game stream, with specific stats, they can do so by cycling through different filters such as player stats, game modes, maps, player skill level, in-game activity, or progress. So instead of just searching 'CoD: AW stream' in Twitch, the app update now lets users tweak search parameters. This should hypothetically enable you to spend a match watching a Call of Duty stream broadcaster who holds the highest kill/death ratio.
Other examples we were given include instantly queing up for a Halo match based on who has the highest rank in Slayer mode or discovering Forza Horizon 2 players driving who are a specific type of car.
Elsewhere in the update, Xbox One users can now view Twitch videos on demand, which allows Twitchers to watch past broadcasts at any time, irrelevant of whether the broadcaster is online or offline.

Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster Coming to PS4
Final Fantasy X / X-2 HD Remaster will hit PS4 next year, according to a premature listing by Square Enix.
The French version of the company's official store posted the item and, though it was swiftly removed, it was still spotted by Gematsu and is available on Google cache. Seeing as the box art is also knocking about, it's looking like this is seriously legit.

Thats all for Today,

Site Overhaul in the New Year

The staff at Grim Reaper Gamers have been discussing how can we make this a better community. One thing we decided is that the site in its current form did not provide the functionality that we needed.

So, is getting a complete over-haul this new year.

For the past few months we have been working on a new site design and structure. We are talking about a complete facelift of the front page, new forums and an absolute shit-ton of new features. The change for you will be minimal. One day you will see the old site and the next day it will be the new site.

What are some these great new features we are talking about:
  • New Modern Forum software
  • Completely responsive site between desktop and mobile
  • Intra-Clan tournament features
  • Integrated site chat with mobile layout
  • Enhanced notification options
  • And a Lot more...
Since this is such a huge change we will need people to re-register for the site. Sorry, only shitty part, I promise. So when the new site shows up in January (exact day to be announced) you will need to register for the new site. Please fill out the application as normal.

As we get closer to the date you see some previews of what to come.

Thanks for being part of the community
