The Fraxial Show: Episode 33

XCOM is a damn good game. We had to do it justice and play a quick multiplayer match while giving you the weekly gaming news. As usual at this time of year, there are very few game releases worth talking about.

The highlights in terms of news was the trailer for the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game from CD Projekt Red.

Now beyond the trailer above, there was a neat hidden message embedded at the end of the video providing more details on their upcoming plans.  Reddit user mcpower_ was kind enough to transcribe the entire message which can be seen in the link below.

To wrap things up, I also suggest taking a look at this short ‘making of’ article that details how they designed and recorded everything in the trailer.

We should be releasing a first impressions video on Resident Evil 5, while it is a game behind the series we did have quite a bit of fun trying it out. As always, if you have any comments or suggestions please let us know !

BPGE #33 – Fallout 2

As usual, today is the third and final video of the week. Today’s game is an open world RPG called Fallout 2. The game is based on an alternative history which started around 1950. With a scare in resources, almost all technology ground to a halt as nuclear power was needed for survival. This scare in resources would eventually lead to all out nuclear wars in the 2070’s where most of the United-States became a barren wasteland. You begin your quest in this post-apocalyptic world about 150 years later where the effects have only just started to settle down.
