The Fraxial Show: Episode 45

It seems we can’t get enough Battlefield 3. This week we try out the new End Game DLC which features some cool new maps and vehicles. As for news and game releases, it’s a fairly quiet week in the world of gaming.

The main things we talk about are the rumours surrounding the new Xbox and the massive PR storm of failure caused by a creative director at Microsoft. Aside from that, there’s been a tech analysis done of the new Fox Engine that’s definitely worth checking out. Also, what was thought to be an April Fool’s joke by Ubisoft turns out to be the real deal: Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is scheduled to release on May 1st and there’s already been leaked footage of the game posted online.

This week on The Fraxial Show, we talk about the much anticipated Starcraft 2: Heart of the Swarm expansion that was released today. Also, Mike talks a little bit about his time playing the new SimCity game and covers some of the stuff he mentioned in his Quick Look video. Keep an eye out for the full review sometime this week.

As for games played, we’ve both been playing Spec Ops: The Line, since it was just added to the Instant Collection for PS+ members. It’s a decent shooter squeezed into an excellent story; definitely worth a look. We’ll have a full review of it soon as well. Tomorrow we’ll have a video review of the game Vanquish, which we both enjoyed quite a bit. Be sure to check it out!
