Fans get to decide who graces the cover of FIFA 17
Yesterday EA announced through a press release that they have choice stress. They didn’t say it quite literally, but they currently have four candidates for the cover of FIFA 17 and they let the fans choose who ends up with his screaming head on the box. The four world-famous footballers (I think, The Guard knows even less about the sport than Wouter) are James Rodriguez of Real Madrid CF, Anthony Martial of Manchester United, Eden Hazard of Chelsea FC and Marco Reus of Borussia Dortmund. You can vote for your favorite once every day via the FIFA cover-vote website.
All of these above footballers have teamed up with EA to improve FIFA 17 in terms of physical interaction with opponents, dealing with dead game moments, and how players think and move. Nick Channon, senior producer of FIFA 17 thinks the guys are the epitome of the innovations in the new part:
“James, Martial, Hazard and Reus represent thrilling attacking football and embody the innovative play that fans can expect in FIFA 17. We look forward to seeing fans stand up for their favorite player and we can’t wait to see who is chosen as cover star for the franchise. ”
Who is your favorite for that cover? By the way, if you vote ten times you will receive a FUT match loan item for three matches and if you vote 20 times you will receive a FUT 16 gold pack. keep an eye on it!
Link in Monster Hunter: Generations
The Monster Hunter series has a knack for putting well-known Nintendo franchises in their game. Usually these references come in the form of equipment for your Palico and this time is no different. Check out this Palico as Link in his Wind Waker form:
This outfit is available as free DLC, so it will be a bit of a download anyway, right?
Red Dead Redemption finally to Xbox One
Earlier this year, Red Dead Redemption was briefly playable on Xbox One due to a bug from Microsoft, but now Rockstar Games has officially announced that this epic game will actually be playable on Xbox One July 8 through backwards compatibility.
Starting on Friday, every Red Dead Redemption Xbox 360 owner will be able to play the game directly on their Xbox One, regardless of which version of the game they own (Red Dead Redemption, Undead Nightmare and Red Dead Redemption: Game of the Year Edition). “
If you do not have the game now, do you feel ashamed first, then you can purchase it digitally and have dozens of hours of fun hunting bears, playing with dice and playing poker. A kind of average Friday night for Samuel, but then with dice.
Knowledge is power; what if you were a giant
De Wacht has some experience in the field of being a giant, but 2.05 meters is nothing compared to 20m. Vsauce explains that it might not be very useful after all:
Nintendo is thinking about making controllers for smartphones
As we know, Nintendo is quite old school and not really open to new market strategies, but that’s over now! That may be over now, De Wacht means. During a shareholders’ meeting there was talk of controllers for smartphones. Recently Nintendo started making games for the smartphone (turned out to be more than just a hype) and now they are thinking about making controllers for the phones. Nintendo’s general manager of entertainment planning and development Shinya Takahashi said:
Physical controllers for smart device applications are available in the market and it is possible that we may also develop something new by ourselves. I believe Nintendo’s way of thinking is to look at whether action games are really not impossible (without a physical controller for smart device applications) to create and how we can make it happen to create such a game. ”
The only real Nintendo games that are out for smartphones now are Miitomo and Pokémon GO are eager to play in the dug-out. In addition, Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem titles are also planned. These games don’t particularly benefit from using a controller, but it does indicate that there may be some more action-oriented titles in the pipeline. Finally Mario on your phone, mega chill.
Battlefield 1 spectator mode screenshots

Call of Duty: Roman Wars was almost a thing
Call of Duty has been advancing in time with their campaign lately, but there was once a pitch for Roman Wars. A Call of Duty in the time of Julius Caesar. Something that doesn’t sound like a CoD game at all due to a great lack of automatic shooting irons… Bow and arrow is different. Vicarious Visions is the studio that made this proposal to Activision, but this idea has not been picked up as we all know. Still, it’s an interesting story, but without zombies, lasers and exoskeletons, waging a war is no fun, right?
Codsworth learns new names
Fallout 4 is getting a new patch with the inspiring name 1.6 update. This update contains over 300 new names for Codsworth to pronounce. The Guard was very disappointed that his usual name wasn’t in the first batch of 1000 names, but even in this new update, Codsworth doesn’t know how to pronounce it. Sin. You can find the whole list of new names here. Reddit has again done its best to mine the data.
Now Codsworth can pronounce all constellations, Phasma, Heisenberg and Butch (Tunnel Snakes rule!), Among others. The Xbox One will get this update next week and the PS4 version is still being worked on, but it probably won’t be much longer.
