#GAMING: 17 Minutes Of Explosive ‘CRACKDOWN 3’ Gameplay – #Gamescom2015 #IGN

Check out this 17 minutes long run of Crackdown 3 gameplay. A lot has been said about the scale of destruction in the game, the trailer showcases just that.

For anyone that wonder, there is a lot to be seen in this footage that debuted through IGN from the Gamescom 2015– event.

Crackdown 3 is an Xbox One- exclusive game. The destruction is allowed by the cloud service of Xbox One and its said to use the same amount of power as 20 Xbox Ones. This makes one wonder what possibilites are there in the near future and in the far
future, for that matter, with this technology.

#GAMING: ‘QUANTUM BREAK’ Gamescom 2015 Trailer And Demo #SPEL

Check out the gameplay for this hot Xbox One exclusive. It centers around time manipulation and if you also take a look at the trailer, you will see the cast of the game. I recognize at least two actors. Enjoy!

OWN OPINION:
Even thought I feel that the concept of time manipulation is fresh, there are some elements that I am scheptical about.

For instance, I don’t like the color scheme when time is manipulated during gameplay. The graphics also does not seem to be that sharp as I expect of an AAA game of this type.

But I might still en up getting an Xbox One and buy this game!

#SERIES: ‘SENSE8’ Gets A Second Season #NETFLIX

The Watchowskis’ Netflix original sci-fi series Sense 8is getting a second season.

This announcement was made by the series’ cast on Netflix US’ Twitter account. Check out the announcement in the video below:

The announcement comes at about 2 months after the first seasons’ release on Netflix. Rumors that the show might be dropped off by the streaming service have been circulating around because Netflix usually announces renew or drop-off for a show within one month from its release.

OWN OPINION: I guess it’s all good now. I am super happy that the show has been renewed for a second season and can’t wait to find out how it will all play out.

I saw Sense8 on a streaming site and really enjoyed it. The sci-fi elements are perhaps not as many as one could expect from the show but the concept is a fresh approach to the genre. If you haven’t seen it yet, please do see it!
