[Let me preface this article by saying that as I am based in the EU, I don’t yet have access to TLoU:R just yet but having said that, our resident Canadian here on Takuchat.com, Phantomlink, has confirmed that my theory is correct.]

lastofus 3When Naughty Dog revealed that TLoU:R would include a photo mode I was delighted as I had fallen in love with the feature since it was added to inFamous: Second Son but then I began to think, will the photo mode make listening redundant? At the click of the L3 button I’ll be able to pause the action, orbit the camera around Joel and see around walls. You might say ‘that’s nuts, that’s way too much effort when I can just press one button to listen?’ and you’d be right except for when you’re playing on the Survivor or the new Grounded difficulty settings, both of which remove Joel’s ability to ‘listen’ and see through walls. That is where a person may resort to using the photo mode as a means to provide them with information they wouldn’t otherwise know, using the photo mode in a way that it wasn’t intended to be used.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining, nobody will be putting a gun to our head making us use the exploit, I am merely pointing out that it exists and that it may cheapen a few trophies.

Will you be using photo mode to help you out or will you be a purist and save it for making Joel and Ellie look fabulous?

Destiny would be an amazing third person shooter. at Takuchat.com

Now, I’ll just get this out of the way. I love First Person Shooters, and I adored the Destiny Beta and Alpha, in fact I put arond 50 hours into them. But there is one thing I felt could make Destiny better.

That thing being the ability to play from 3rd person, now if you play games you know there is no major shortage of shooters. Especially first person ones, because of the over saturation of shooters for the past few years many gamers have become tired of them, but 3rd person shooters haven’t reached that point of saturation ( yet ).

This led me to a strange string of thoughts when playing Destiny, and that thought of course was ” What if Destiny allowed 3rd person play besides the FPS gameplay?”.

The more I thought about it the more having 3rd person seemed to make sense, just think about it. In Destiny you are gave the ability to make your guardian and customize them to a pretty good degree, you change your armor, the color of your gear and your special items. This all leads to a pretty personal Guardian. but the problem is you don’t get to see them much outside of the Tower.

Now if you had the option to play the game in 3rd person not only would you be able to see your awesome Guardian and all that glorious loot you have horded, but it would also open the game up to a Huge crowd that otherwise wouldn’t play the game.

Being an avid supporter of Bungie and Destiny I try to sell my friends on the game on a pretty regular basis, one of the questions that is always asked is ” Is it an FPS” and of course I answer them, and immediately after they are no longer interested.The odd thing is that many of these people play 3rd person shooters, by simply adding this feature ( a feature that is partly added already( See the Tower or Halo’s Theater modes 3ps option)) and they were interested in the game until hearing it was “Just another FPS”.

I know many people are going to simply dismiss this and say “Destiny is an FPS’ but really, why does that matter? In Halo, and Destiny you control vehicles from 3rd person, as well as turrets. Furthermore in Destiny when you do your super moves you move out to 3rd person to see your character, though temporary it always is awesome to finally get to see your character, then you are brought back into First person view, and to be honest, sometimes I would like to just stay in 3rd person and look at my character.

Now A ton of people are probably wondering, what would Destiny look like in 3rd person, and luckily for us TwilightGap over at Imgur made a rather awesome and large gallery of 3rd person screens in Destiny. You can view the gallery below.

Did You Know About Big Boss’s New Technique In Ground Zeroes? Plus A Share Factory Issue That Needs To Be Fixed at Takuchat.com

Anyone who knows me on Takuchat.com knows that Metal Gear Solid is the reason I game, I’m a huge fan of the series and I like to think I know the ins and out of just about every MGS title. I bought Ground Zeroes day 1 like I’m sure many reading this also did (and I’ve more hours into it than most other games this year so don’t start with that “it’s only a demo” talk, or do, whatever I’m not your Mom). So imagine my surprise when, months after release, I watch a Ground Zeroes montage video that showed Big Boss utilising a move that I didn’t even know was possible, I told myself I’d try figure out how to do it later as other games got in the way and then I forgot about it, until today.

I can no longer remember the montage video where I learned of the move but it didn’t tell me how to do it anyway so I decided I’d make my own short video showing how to do it once I figured it out and that while I was at it, I’d voice a complaint about a Share Factory issue that has been going on for too long now and was supposed to be fixed in a patch. You’ll see both for yourself in the video.

For those who haven’t heard of the project it is a  fan made Halo game  made for the PC using the Cryengine, it is going to be Free to play of course.

You can visit the official site here, or click here to see their last major news update (January 2014).

While the screens are beautiful a user on Reddit pointed out that  “It should also be noted that all of these screenshots are from very early builds of the game that are no longer in use, the UI one in particular is very rough and out of date.”

Below is the gallery

Here is a year old tech demo

The last update was near 6 months ago, but this is not the first time the project has gone silent, so all we can do is wait.

The unkillable enemies in the Destiny beta have been killed. at Takuchat.com

In the Destiny Beta there are enemies which have their levels marked as “???” when you shoot them the damage doesn’t register and instead the word “Immune” pops up. Because of that many players have assumed the enemies to be immortal, but it terns out they are not.

Today Takuchat had a gamenight with Destiny, and while we were waiting for the event to begin a few of us wandered into the blocked off areas, we got slaughtered as was expected.Then we noticed something, one of the enemies had slightly damaged health.

Upon realizing these enemies were mortal we made ourselves a goal of killing these enemies, not through cheap tricks like making them fall off ledges. But by unloading every dang bullet we had in them. Below you can see our glorious results-

* Should be pointed out that the enemies were killable in the Alpha.
