Birdman Handrub: ‘Resident Evil 2’ “1-Shot” Demo Will Allow You To Play 30 Minutes of The Game

Resident Evil 2 1 Shot Demo

Resident Evil 2 easily one of 2019’s most anticipated video games with fans chomping at the bits to play the rebuilt survival horror classic. Well, Capcom is you giving you that chance with a demo arriving on PS4, Xbox One and Steam this month.

Oh, we are excited and shook at the same time.

Capcom announced its upcoming Resident Evil 2 “1 Shot” demo will arrive January 11 and will allow players to experience 30 minutes of in-game time of the reimagined nightmare. As reported on PlayStation’s blog players will be able to play as much as the like, but they better make the most of their time cause once the clock runs out the demo comes to an end.

So basically it’s like a time attack mode where players will have to make the most of the time given by picking and choosing their battles, conserving ammo and supplies in hopes they can make it to the end before time runs out. Sounds like the perfect placement holder till the game is officially released January 25. If you are eager to get your hands on this game like we are, you can pre-order the game now and receive an exclusive PS4  pre-order theme.

For those who pre-order the Digital Deluxe Edition of the game, you will be rewarded with a DLC pack with extra costumes for Claire and Leon and a “Samurai Edge” handgun model, and “Original Ver.” Soundtrack swap. So get ready to enter the world of Survival Horror again this Friday.

Hip-Hop Wired’s 10 Best Video Games of 2018

Hip-Hop Wired's 10 Best Video Games of 2018

2018 is coming to a close and if you’re a gamer the year has been a good one for you when it came to powering up your consoles and escaping reality for a few hours.

One could make the argument for 2018 being one of the best years in video game history. It’s been a while since we seen so many critically acclaimed titles hit consoles in one year keeping gamers in front of their 4K televisions regularly.

I’ve been gaming for a long time, and I can’t recall a time when there was just so many games to play with some of them launching in the same month. In this year alone we saw the return of Kratos, web swung through the streets of NYC as Spider-Man, got the Dragon Ball Fighter Z game we always wanted, returned to the Wild Wild West in Red Dead Redemption 2, teamed up with Lara Croft to stop the apocalypse in Shadow of The Tomb Raider and so much more.

We decided to list our favorite 10 games from 2018, and no Fornite is not on it. While 2019 has some big titles to look forward to like *coughs* Resident Evil 2, and The Last of Us 2, this year has been one for the record books. Hit the gallery below to see which games got mad respect from us and which title got that number 1 spot.

Wait What?: PlayStation Will Not Be Showing Anything At E3 2019

US-ENTERTAINMENT-GAMES-IT-E3-SONY

Source: FREDERIC J. BROWN / Getty

It officially has been five years since Sony blessed us with the PlayStation 4 console. On top of celebrating the PS4, the company dropped the bombshell that it would not have a presence at E3 2019.

Wait a minute here.

A Sony rep confirmed the surprising news to Polygon explaining that the company is looking for ways to “innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers.”

Per Polygon:

“As the industry evolves, Sony Interactive Entertainment continues to look for inventive opportunities to engage the community “PlayStation fans mean the world to us, and we always want to innovate, think differently and experiment with new ways to delight gamers. As a result, we have decided not to participate in E3 in 2019. We are exploring new and familiar ways to engage our community in 2019 and can’t wait to share our plans with you.”

Sony and PlayStation’s absence will be the first time in the convention’s 24-year history. Sony wowed gamers back in May 1995 at the first ever E3 Conference when it announced the U.S. launch date and price for the first PlayStation console. Despite Sony’s surprising absence, Microsoft, Nintendo as well as publishers like Activision, Ubisoft, Take-Two and more are already committed to E3 2019.

As you can imagine the speculation as to why Sony decided not to attend has gamers believing that the company will be holding its own conference and will possibly be dropping a major bomb in the form of the PS5.

We also believe that as well, but E3 will be a little dry without PlayStation. For the past couple of years, they have been bringing the excitement each year, so Sony’s absence is a gut punch for those looking forward to E3 2019. This is the second event PlayStation has canceled. The annual PlayStation Experience event the company holds at the beginning of December has been put on ice as well.

This story is still developing.

50 Cent Clocks In Playstation 4 Goals W/ Sire Jackson: “He Can Beat Me At This S**t Already”

50 Cent Sire Jackson

New York rapper 50 Cent might have just realized video games aren’t his calling. The hip-hop veteran has shared some epic-looking father-son pics of himself and Sire Jackson.

Last night, Curtis Jackson dropped a few pics of himself clocking in daddy duties.

In early September, 50 Cent and ex-girlfriend Daphne Joy celebrated their son’s sixth birthday.

Back in June, 50’s ex-girlfriend Shaniqua Tompkins‘ son Marquise Jackson trolled the rapper over going ghost on him for Father’s Day.

Not So Fast Partner: ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops 4’ Tops ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’ PS4 October Sales

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Top Selling PS4 Game In October

Source: Activision / Treyarch

Hold your horses Red Dead Redemption 2, despite being the topic of discussion on video game Twitter and breaking records, Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 was king on the PS4 console in October.

No single-player campaign, no problem apparently.

The purely multiplayer experience that is Black Ops 4 had itself a great month of October on the PS4 console. PlayStation revealed via its blog the top 10 games downloaded on the console with the Activision’s shooter grabbing the number one spot, Rockstar Games’ epic western Red Dead Redemption 2 right behind it and Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed: Odyssey rounding out the top 3. There were some surprises as well with EA’s shooter Battlefield 1 finding new life landing in the fifth spot thanks to recently released free content for the game.

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops 4
  2. Red Dead Redemption 2
  3. Assassin’s Creed Odyssey
  4. FIFA 19
  5. Battlefield 1
  6. Marvel’s Spider-Man
  7. NBA 2K19
  8. Soul Calibur VI
  9. Castlevania Requiem: Symphony of the Night + Rondo of Blood
  10. WWE 2K19

Other factors that may have contributed to Black Ops 4 topping sales could be the lure of exclusive content coming to PS4 owners first as well as the new battle royale mode Blackout. We won’t be surprised if Red Dead Redemption 2 eventually gallops past the shooter when PlayStation reveals November sales. But don’t expect Black Ops 4 to drop out of the top 3 no time soon. With tons of new content on the way and the holidays quickly approaching the game will have legs taking well into the next year as one of the consoles best-selling titles.

Sneaky Devils: Sony Slowly Rolling Out Quieter PlayStation 4 Pro Consoles

Sony Slowly Rolling Out Quieter PS4 Pro Consoles

Source: picture alliance / Getty

Sony’s powerful console the PS4 Pro launched to much fanfare, but owners had one complaint with the console due to its noise output. It looks like Sony has quietly solved the issue with new models sneakingly hitting the shelves.

The very discreet fix was noticed by Eurogamer who measured the decibel level of the CUH-7200 version of the PS4 Pro console. They discovered instead of 50-decibels out from the launch version of the PS4 Pro (CUH-7000), the new model’s noise output level started at 44-decibels and peaked at 48-decibels when at its loudest.

While that isn’t much of a difference when measured it’s still a much quieter experience compared to the “jet engine” like sound gamers often complained about. Unfortunately, to achieve this, Sony did away with the thermal reduction in the new model so the new consoles might get much hotter than the older model. Despite the changes on the inside of the console, the CUH-7200 model still looks the same as it’s predecessor.

So if you’re in the market for a 4K gaming console and you want the quieter PS4 Pro console, your best bet will be purchasing the Red Dead Redemption 2 bundle. We’re not sure if the new model is being sold alone yet so you may have to check the model number on the box and make sure it says CUH-7200. We do anticipate once the original launch models run out, Sony will start shipping the quieter console in more significant numbers.

Xzibit Receives Epic Red Dead Redemption 2 Care Package

Xzibit Pic

West Coast rapper Xzibit is with the games, notably when it involves bad cowboys and endless hours of taking out rival gangs. The hip-hop veteran has co-signed the newly released Red Dead Redemption 2 video game.

Last night, X hit up Instagram to share a shot of his decked-out gift set including the game and customized items.

The video game’s soundtrack includes music from hip-hop veteran Nas and elusive singer D’Angelo.

All of the vocal moments in Red Dead Redemption 2 are produced entirely by Grammy Award-winner Daniel Lanois, known for producing albums for Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Willie Nelson as well as collaborating with pioneering musician Brian Eno to produce several albums for U2 including the multi-platinum The Joshua Tree. In addition to Lanois’ production, the soundtrack features additional vocal performances from a range of award-winning artists including D’Angelo, Willie Nelson, Nas, Rhiannon Giddens, Josh Homme, plus an additional track written, produced and performed by David Ferguson. All songs for both the score and soundtrack were created exclusively for Red Dead Redemption 2. (Rockstar Games)

Rap star Drake has already delivered a major Red Dead Redemption 2 co-sign.

In its first 72 hours, the must-play game made history with over $725 million in sales.

Rockstar Games is proud to announce that the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has achieved the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment*. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games’ previously released title, Grand Theft Auto V, which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days.

Drake’s Playing The Biggest Game In The World Right Now (Spoiler: It’s Not Fortnite)

Drake

OVO Sound boss Drake is about that Rockstar Games life. The hip-hop superstar has served up a huge salute to the newly released Red Dead Redemption II video game.

The 6 God went to his Instagram Story Wednesday (October 31) to show fans he’s clocking in work on his Playstation 4.

In its first 72 hours, the must-play game made history with over $725 million in sales.

Rockstar Games is proud to announce that the critically acclaimed Red Dead Redemption 2 has achieved the single-biggest opening weekend in the history of entertainment*. With over $725 million in worldwide retail sell-through during its first three days, Red Dead Redemption 2 is the second-highest grossing entertainment launch of all time next to Rockstar Games’ previously released title, Grand Theft Auto V, which achieved over $1 billion in retail sell-through in three days.

The long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s game-changing Red Dead Redemption centers on the Wild Wild West.

An epic tale of honor and loyalty set in the dying days of the outlaw age, Red Dead Redemption 2 follows Arthur Morgan and the Van der Linde gang as they rob, steal and fight their way across the rugged heartland of America in order to survive. Following a botched robbery in the western town of Blackwater, the gang is forced to flee and, with federal agents and the best bounty hunters in the nation massing on their heels, deepening internal divisions threaten to tear the gang apart, leaving Arthur to make a choice between his own ideals and loyalty to the gang who raised him.

The massive opening sales officially put the game up on Grand Theft Auto V‘s historic level.

That tops the highest-grossing movie in history, “Avengers: Infinity Wars,” which earned more than $640 million during its opening weekend earlier this year. But “Red Dead Redemption 2” still isn’t the highest grossing entertainment launch of all time. That honor also goes to Rockstar Games for “Grand Theft Auto V,” which earned more than $1 billion in sell-through in its first three days. Because “Grand Theft Auto V” launched on a Tuesday, it left the door open for “Red Dead Redemption 2’s” — which launched on a Friday — record-setting weekend. (Variety)

Easy Fix: Sony Addresses Messaging Bug, Says It Has Resolved Issue

Sony Addresses Messaging Bug, Says It Has Resolved Issue

Source: SOPA Images / Getty

Sony basically quelled all PlayStation 4 owners fears today about a messaging bug that was allegedly “bricking” consoles. 

We have been waiting for the company to address the issue and they did so via their PlayStation UK Twitter account. In the Tweet reply, the company informed worried PS4 owners that it “fixed the issue” and that the bug wasn’t bricking consoles but just “sending them into a crash loop” that could be “quickly fixed in under 5 minutes.”

What also stands out is the fact Sony addressed the issue without having to send out an update or firmware patch. So that basically means it was something on their end that had to be corrected. Definitely good news but this is definitely a good reason to keep your guard while gaming and making it your business to download the PlayStation App. Also, continue to play it safe by keeping your messaging privacy settings on “friends only” just in case.

Sony has yet to issue an official statement which could be taken as an indication to just how worried the company was about the messaging bug or if that they were already well aware of the bug and were on the job.

Hack Using PS4’s Messaging System Allegedly Will Brick Your Console

Hack Using PS4's Messaging System Allegedly Will Brick Your Console

Source: SOPA Images / Getty

These nerds are seriously bored. Over the weekend PlayStation 4 owners are saying a text-message based hack is bricking their consoles forcing them to do a factory reset. 

Sony has yet to confirm or comment on the hack, but many have stated that they were victims. Gamers have taken to a PS4 subreddit claiming they were hit and are describing the same effects. The hack stems from a message that contains a string of characters that literally shuts down their consoles.

If you are worried about the hack and you should be, there is a way to combat it. You could either manage your messaging preferences from a web browser or check incoming messages via the PlayStation iOS or Android app which is considered the best way to be safe. You can also just handle it via your console by going into the Account Management tab, then the Privacy Settings tab. You either can switch your messaging preferences to either only friends or just turn them off completely.

As for possibly how it all started, a user stated atop the subreddit threat used the attack against everyone on his team except for one person who happened to have his messaging on private. So basically this sounds like it stemmed from a disgruntled gamer who can’t handle losses very well.

Regardless we hope Sony is indeed paying attention to this and working on some sort of patch to combat this hack because it is very worrisome.
