    The Fraxial Show: Episode 44

    Hey fans! With all this news about Battlefield 4, we just had to make a video featuring some BF3 footage. Both Mike and Nick picked up Battlefield Premium quite recently and this is our first time actually playing any of the DLC maps. This video features some Armored Kill gameplay.

    You’ll notice that we’ve streamlined the “new game releases” portion of our show to make room for discussion about news. We will cover the noteworthy releases while the rest will still be listed below.

    As for news, there have been quite a few developments that have taken place over the last week. As you know, Battlefield 4 was announced and there is a 17 minute gameplay video available to watch. Also, Hideo Kojima has revealed in an interview that the new Metal Gear Solid game(s) “Ground Zeroes” and “The Phantom Pain” are all going to be part of the new Metal Gear V story. Furthermore, he showcases the new Fox Engine, which shows some potential for a Metal Gear release on the PS4. At the same time, the new Unreal 4 Engine has been revealed with a cool visual trailer titled “Infiltrator”. Those are just some of the things we discussed in the video. Watch it to find out more!

    The Fraxial Show: Episode 37

     

    We go retro this week as we play some Goldeneye 007 multiplayer for the show. Only a handful of minor game releases to talk about, which is typical for this time of year. In terms of news, CD Projekt RED finally confirmed the release of the highly anticipated sequel, The Witcher 3. There is also a new Tomb Raider gameplay video that was released and it’s a somewhat unclear indication of what the game will be like. Stay tuned for reviews on that.

    Long time with no updates ?

    Hey everyone, as you may have seen there has not been updates as of late. Fear not, we have been releasing weekly content via our YouTube channel over at http://www.youtube.com/user/fraxial

    Now why have we not updated for the past few weeks? Well to be honest it’s partially down to a lack of time and a bit of lazyness between me and Nick. We are still hard at work on the website (and school in Nick’s case) which is also taking a large portion of our time.

    We will be trying to keep the website up to date from now on. On top of that, we will look into setting a scheduled time every Wednesday to release our new episodes of The Fraxial Show. As a bonus to website visitors, we will try to provide an early link as soon as YouTube is done processing the file since we typically record and upload on Tuesdays.
