Gamer's Source 2-5-14


Microsoft has announced the details of the newest update to its newest console. The first update comes on February 11th and will fix some UI nitpicks, including the ability to see your controller battery life, see the amount of memory left on the Xbox One, and moving applications our of the games tab for ease of finding them. The update will also add USB keyboard support. 

The second part of the update will release on March 4th and will fully revamp the party chat system, just in time to prepare for Titanfall. Details are still scarce, so stay tuned to hear more about Microsoft fixing things that shouldn't have been changed from the previous console.


Looks like rebooting the MMO Final Fantasy XIV has paid off for Square Enix. The company announced some very positive numbers today, giving most of the credit to the re-released game for bringing the company out of operating at a loss. This is no surprise to anyone who has been paying attention to the game since it's re-release, as it has seen rave reviews and releases on multiple platforms.

Number THREE!!!

The Pokemon Bank is back online. The app has finally been released once again in the United States, making it the last territory to get the application since it was taken off the E-store back during Christmas. Hopefully Nintendo has figured out the system breaking bugs and the app and the E-store will stay in working condition.

Number FOUR!!!!

A number of release dates have been announced today. The Stryder reboot and DLC for Borderlands 2 will be released next Tuesday, February 11th. The second part of Bioshock Inifinite's DLC Burial at Sea will release on March 25th. The final piece of Borderlands 2 DLC will release on May 5th. And finally, Drakengard 3 will release on May 21st. 


Also coming February 18th will be a standalone version of Assassin's Creed IV DLC. Priced at $15, the standalone is $5 more than the add-on version, but does not require the core game to play. Personally, I'd love to see more of this. Often times people may just want a taste of a game or just a small story to play through, so releasing these packs as stand alone opens the. Up to more consumers and it gives the consumers more options. A win-win if you ask me.

So what so you think? Excited about some new releases? Like the idea of more stand alone DLC? Leave your comments below and as always, keep the conversation going?
