Gamer's Source 3-5-14

After a few personal days and moving around jobs, the Gamer’s Source is back! Here are todays top gaming news. Feel free to share this site with friends and family. If you don’t like what I’m doing, leave a comment. If you like what you read here, share with everyone on the Facebooks and the Twitters, and leave a comment. And, without further ado…


Game writer Amy Hennig has left Sony owned developer Naughty Dog. Known for her outstanding writing on the Uncharted series, her last day was Monday, March 3rd.  She had been at the studio for 10 years.

This one is a little weird, as she has been writing the newest Uncharted game for PS4. Rumors have been circulating that Neil Druckmann and Bruce Stanely pushed her out and that the two writers will be taking over Uncharted, but there has been no verification to this.

Thanks IGN


Batman: Arkham Knight has been officially announced. Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC, the game takes place one year after the end of Arkham City. Players will be driving the Batmobile around Gotham, which will be five times the size of Arkham City. The vehicle will be summoned at any point in time and can propel Batman into the air for better viewpoints and gliding. With the new next gen hardware, up to 50 enemies can be attacking the Dark Knight at one point. Penguin, Scarecrow, Harley Quinn and Two Face are confirmed villains. Kevin Conroy will reprise his role as Batman and this will be the last Batman game by developer Rocksteady.

This is amazing. I am going to pre order as soon as possible.

Thanks Game Informer.

Number THREE!!!

According to The Verge, Microsoft is pushing Xbox Live to iOS and Android even more so than now. Though there is no more information,  Microsoft already has its SmartGlass apps on both operating systems as well as an iOS game that has achievements that link with the players Gamer’s Score. It will be interesting to see how much more integrated it could be, especially with Microsoft being so closed off to other companies in an attempt to push its own products.

Number FOUR!!!!

OnLive is alive once more! The game streaming service, which closed in 2012, is alive with a new leader and different business model. By adding the ability to both stream and download games locally as well as a cheaper, stream only $10 a month fee, the service hopes to become more competitive with the larger console and PC markets. 

Thanks Gamasutra


Twitch is releasing a streaming kit for mobile game developers. Announced through the company's developer blog, the new kit will allow for streaming of popular mobile games, as well as utilize the mobile device's cameras. This is no surprise, as the service is sky rocketing in popularity with it's integration with the newest consoles. 

And that's all for today folks! as always, please comment and share with your friends and as always, keep the conversation going.
